About Breathe Again

"Breathe Again" is a song by American R&B singer Toni Braxton from her self-titled debut album (1993). Written by Babyface and produced by L. A. Reid, Babyface, and Daryl Simmons, the ballad was released as the album's second single, garnering heavy airplay during the summer and autumn of 1993, which resulted in it being the most successful single released from the album. The lyric evokes a sense of nostalgia from a relationship that has run its course. The single peaked at number three on the US Billboard Hot 100 and number four on the Billboard Hot R&B Singles and Adult Contemporary charts. "Breathe Again" became one of Braxton's most successful international hits, reaching number two in Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom and peaking within the top 10 in several European countries and Canada. The song earned Braxton her second consecutive Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in 1995.

If I never feel you in my arms again
If I never feel your tender kiss again
If I never hear "I love you" now and then
Will I never make love to you once again?
Please understand, if love ends
Then I promise you, I promise you that
That I shall never breathe again (breathe again, breathe again)
That I shall never breathe again (breathe again)

Well
And I can't stop thinking about
About the way things used to be
And I can't stop thinking about
About the love that you made to me
And I can't get you out of my head
How in the world will I begin
To let you walk right out my life
And throw my heart away?
And I can't stop caring about
About the apple of my eye
And I can't stop doing without
Without the center of my life
And I can't get you out of my head
And I know I can't pretend
That I won't die if you decide if you won't see me again

If I never feel you in my arms again (again)
If I never feel your tender kiss again (again)
If I never hear "I love you" now and then (again)
Will I never make love to you once again?
Please understand, if love ends
Then I promise you, I promise you that
That I shall never breathe again (breathe again, breathe again)
That I shall never breathe again (breathe again)

And I can't stop thinking about
About the way my life would be
No, I can't stop thinking about
How could you love me then leave?
And I can't get you out of my mind
God knows how hard I've tried
And if you walk right out my life, God knows I'm sure to die
And I can't stop doing without, no
(Without the rhythm of my heart)
No, I can't stop doing without, no
(For I will surely fall apart)
And I can't get you out of my mind
('Cause I know I can't deny)
And I would die if you decide you won't see me again

If I never feel you in my arms again (if I never, ever see you)
If I never feel your tender kiss again (no, no, no, no)
If I never hear "I love you" now and then (now and then)
Will I never make love to you once again? (never make love, never make love)
Please, please, please understand, if love ends (if it should ever end)
Then I promise you, I promise you that
That I shall never breathe again, no, no, no (breathe again, breathe again)
That I shall never breathe again (breathe again)
