  • Are you gonna catch my breath when I see you walking in?
    You come and get my hand, stealing the oxygen
    And everyone else in here disappears, is just the two of us in the room
    I start to spin around the chandelier
    In the buzz in the crowd I can feel the rush
    'Cause you're clouding up my atmosphere

    Everybody's got somebody who gets them the way you got me
    I still want you, I can't stop me

    Girl, I wanna run right to you, then I wanna run away
    Girl, I got to hand it to you, you know how to make me pay
    Girl, I wish I never knew ya, 'cause every time I see you standing there
    Oh, feels like I'm running out of air

    You hit me like a wave, you cover me in the grass
    I'm drowning in what you say, it's taking me under, fast
    As you're taking me down the hall you make it easy for me to forget
    'Cause you're saying everything you know I want you to say
    And I'm getting in deeper the darker it gets
    The lights go out I'm still surfacing

    Everybody's got somebody who gets them the way you got me
    You got me right where you want me

    Girl, I wanna run right to you, then I wanna run away
    Girl, I got to hand it to you, you know how to make me pay
    Girl, I wish I never knew ya, 'cause everytime I see you standing there
    Oh, feels like I'm running out of air

    I still want you, I can't stop me

    Girl, I wanna run right to you, then I wanna run away
    Girl, I got to hand it to you, you know how to make me pay
    Girl, I wish I never knew ya, 'cause every time I see you standing there
    Girl, I wanna run right to you, then I wanna run away
    Girl, I got to hand it to you, you know how to make me pay
    Girl, I wish I never knew ya, 'cause every time I see you standing there
    Oh, feels like I'm running out of air
