Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air?

[Bella]
If I should die before I wake
It's cause you took my breath away
Losing you is like living in a world with no air
Oh


“I curled over, pressing my face against the steering wheel and trying to breathe without lungs.”


[Edward]
I'm here alone didn't wanna leave
My heart won't move it's incomplete
If there was a way that I could make you understand

“I was thinking of you, seeing your face in my mind, every second that I was away.”


[Both]
But how do you expect me to live alone with just me?

cause my world revolves around you it's so hard for me to breathe
Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air?
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
It's how I feel whenever you ain't there
It's no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon breathe without me?
If you ain't here I just can't breathe
It's no air, no air

No air, air

“I was like a lost moon---my planet destroyed in some cataclysmic, disaster-movie scenario of desolation---that continued, novelettes, to circle in a tight little orbit around the empty space left behind, ignoring the laws of gravity.”


[Edward]
I walk, I ran, I jump, I flew
Right off the ground to float to you
WIth no gravity to hold me down for real

“Right and wrong ceased to mean much to me; I was coming back anyway. Before Rosalie told me the news, I was coming back anyway…it was only a matter of time---and not much of it---before I showed up at your window and begged you to take me back.”


[Bella]
But somehow I'm still alive inside
You took my breathe but I survived
I don't how but I don't even care

“I hoped that I was fainting, but, to my disappointment, I didn’t lose consciousness. The waves of pain that had only lapped at me before now reared high up and washed over my head, pulling me under. I did not resurface.”


[Both]
So how do you expect me to live alone with just me?

cause my world revolves around you it's so hard for me to breathe


Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air?
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
It's how I feel whenever you ain't there
It's no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon breathe without me?
If you ain't here I just can't breathe
It's no air, no air

“My head started to spin---I couldn’t seem to pull in enough oxygen from the air. No lungs.”


No air, air
No more
It's no air, no air

“I froze, my muscles locking down as if for impact. The fault line in my chest rippled; the pain of it took my breath away.”

[Both]
Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air?
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
It's how I feel whenever you ain't there
It's no air, no air
Got me out here in the water so deep
Tell me how you gon breathe without me?
If you ain't here I just can't breathe
It's no air, no air

No air, no air
So how do you expect me to live alone with just me?

cause my world revolves around you it's so hard for me to breathe

“There was no distraction from the…the agony. My heart hasn’t beat in almost ninety years, but this was different. It was like my heart was gone---like I was hollow. Like I’d left everything that was inside of me here with you.”


Tell me how I'm supposed to breathe with no air?
Can't live, can't breathe with no air
It's how I feel whenever you ain't there
It's no air, no air

“Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason for anything.”


[Bella] Got me out here in the water so deep

Where? There was nothing but the darkness. There was no place to swim to.”


[Edward] Tell me how you gon breathe without me?

“You don’t believe me, do you?…why can you believe the lie, but not the truth?”


[Bella] If you ain't here I just can't breathe

“I fought to keep my breath in, to keep my lips locked around my last store of oxygen.”


[Both] It's no air, no air

No air, air

No air

“Even as my lungs burned for more air and my legs cramped in the icy cold, I was content. I’d forgetten what real happiness felt like.”

“Whole. I could feel my heart racing in my chest, the blood pulsing hot and fast through my veins again. My lungs filled deep with the sweet scent that came off his skin.”
