Have you actually ever experienced the feelings behind these lyrics? You should try it out one day. It's scary and amazing all at the same time.

"'Cuz I can't breathe when you talk to me,
Can't breathe when you touch me,
I suffocate when you're away from me,
So much love you take from me, I'm going outta my mind ..."

"Have you actually ever experienced the feelings behind these lyrics?"

I have.

It was nearly three years (3 - WOW) ago. The song came on the radio (it was actually the first time that I had ever heard it, but writing for his first record... I instantly knew the voice).

I was driving home during dawn... the sun was peeking through the clouds... all after one of the most exquisite and beautiful nights of my life [with someone].

And the lyrics went on to so easily explain how my heart felt.

I was literally aching [in the most extraordinary way].

This person took my breath away each and every second, of every minute, of every hour...

Of each day.

Not wishing to forget the lyrics, I used the memo recorder on my phone to capture it... and in doing so; I captured a moment that will end up lasting a lifetime.

(I still keep that old phone to this day - just for that reason alone)

I can always look back at the time and the date of that recording... listen to it... and it is like a time machine in that... it takes me back to that precise moment.

For as much as I love music, to be completely honest... very few songs have ever captured my feelings exactly.

This was one of those rare songs that described my heart and feelings perfectly at the time.
