"Lose My Breath" as written by Bilinda Butcher and Kevin Shields....
Keep coming now
Possessed of nothing more than Hell
Before I can speak
My world is wishing me asleep

Weigh me down
And when the darkness comes around
Repeating heads
Remember nothing I have said

Where are you
Come back again I want you to
'Not now girl' you say
But I was born to lose my breath

    General CommentI think the song is about suicide/depression, and "lose my breath" means to asphyxiate.

    General CommentBilinda Butcher wrote the lyrics to this song. She said in an interview that the lyrics were inspired by the migraine headaches she would get and her son having asthma. So, I guess it's basically coping with your child's illness while you got one of your own.

    General CommentWow, not many posts for this song. First one I heard from them and definately my favourite one. Then again I ahve only heard two of them... but regardless, this one will be hard to beat. The chorus of the "ooooOOOOOoooooooooo" is beautiful. But beautiful does not give itt he justice this song deserves.

    General CommentThis song is basically about sex obviously if you listen to the lyrics or read it or whatever. I had no clue what they meant when I first heard this song then I read the lyrics on the internet and I was totally shocked thinking, "Destiny's Child is never this sexual." at least I dont think hearing other songs from them that dont sound too sexual.
