"The Air That I Breathe" as written by Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood....
If I could make a wish
I think I'd pass
Can't think of anything I need
No cigarettes, no sleep, no light, no sound
Nothing to eat, no books to read
Making love with you
Has left me peaceful warm and tired
What more could I ask
There's nothing left to be desired
Peace came upon me and it leaves me weak
So sleep, silent angel go to sleep

Sometimes all I need is the air that I breathe
And to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe
Yes to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe

Peace came upon me and it leaves me weak
So sleep, silent angel go to sleep

Sometimes all I need is the air that I breathe
And to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe
Yes to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe

Sometimes all I need is the air that I breathe
And to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe
Yes to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe
And to love you
All I need is the air that I breathe
Yes to love you

    General Commentyet another love song saying "I don't give a damn about all the shit in my life or your life or anything, all I need is you and our love, so let's not worry about anything else and just be happy now before we die."

    General CommentThis song is very relaxing.

    I think the guy is saying all I need is you. Nothing else matters, just being with you is enough.

    General CommentThis song is one of those hidden jewelleries in a world of pop culture music.

    Why they don't make songs like this anymore, I have absolutely no clue.

    General CommentSince it hasn't been said yet, this song is A LOT like "Creep" by Radiohead. Just think, if this song hadn't been written, then perhaps we would never have heard of Radiohead.

    General CommentTeh writers of this song, Mike Hazelwood and Albert Hammond, are listed as writers of Creep, along with thom Yorke and have received royalties form the sale of the song. All that aside, this is an amazing song, the kind most guys wouldn't admit to listening to

    General CommentAs I love Creep, and I found out this was the songs inspiration, I LOVE this song almost as much, so gentle and flows really well. Perfect relaxation song.
