suffocate lyrics – counting crows

gave me your word
to hold me close and never let me go
well i never heard
an antic that’s so literal
it’s a symptom of your love
it’s organic to your heart
it’s a natural incline
it’s the way that you are
but i’m impatient
a wild one waiting
untameable

but i’ve gotta live
i’ve gotta breathe
i’ve gotta get out
but you suffocate me
‘cuz you hold me so close
that you don’t even see
you’ve got me paralyzed, immobilized
baby, you suffocate me

you suffocate me, baby
yeah, you suffocate me, yeah
you suffocate me baby, yeah
oh-oh

i get in my car
the phone is ringing before it even starts
by the time i arrive
my voicemail is full with your goodbyes
every time i step outside
“where you goin’? who’s your ride?”
“can i take you? hold your hand?”
c’mon be a man
don’t you know i’m impatient
a wild one, waiting
untameable

but i’ve gotta live
i’ve gotta breathe
i’ve gotta get out
but you suffocate me
‘cuz you hold me so close
that you don’t even see
you’ve got me paralyzed, immobilized
baby, you suffocate me

don’t you know that you suffocate me?
don’t you know that you, know that you
say, don’t you know you
baby, oh

(x2)
i’ve gotta live
i’ve gotta breathe
i’ve gotta get out
but you suffocate me
‘cuz you hold me so close
that you don’t even see
you’ve got me paralyzed, immobilized
baby-

you suffocate me

you suffocate me, baby (repeat)
ooo, ooo
