Song lyrics
AJ:
ohhh...

Brian:
Don't pretend you're sorry
you know you're not
You know you got the power to make me weak inside
And girl you leave me breathless
But it's ok
Cause you are my survival
Now hear me say...

Howie:
I can't imagine life without your love
And even forever don't seem like long enough

Chorus:
'Cause everytime I breathe I take you in
And my heart beats again
Baby I can't help it
You keep me drowning in your love
Everytime I try to rise above
I'm swept away by love
Baby I can't help it
You keep me drowning in your love

AJ:
Maybe I'm a drifter
maybe not
Cause I have known the safety of floating freely in your arms
I don't need another lifeline
It's not for me
Cause only you can save me
Oh, can't you see

Nick:
I can't imagine life without your love
And even forever don't seem like long enough
(Brian: Don't seem like long enough, yeah)

Chorus:
Cause everytime I breathe I take you in
And my heart beats again
Baby I can't help it
You keep me drowning in your love
And everytime I try to rise above
I'm swept away by love
Baby I can't help it
You keep me drowning in your love

Kevin:
Go on and pull me under
Cover me with dreams, yeah
Love me mouth to mouth now
You know I can't resist
Cause you're the air that I breathe

Chorus:
Everytime I breathe I take you in (Brian: everytime I breathe, yeah)
And my heart beats again
Baby I can't help it (AJ: baby I can't help it)
Keep me drowning in your love
And everytime I try to rise above
I'm swept away by love
Baby I can't help it (Brian: Baby I can't help it)
Keep me drowning in your love (Brian: Loooooooooooooooooove)

Baby I can't help it
Keep me drowning in your love (Nick: Keep me drowning in your love)

AJ: Whoa,
Got me drowning

AJ: Keep me drowning in your love

Baby I can't help it (Nick: I can't help it, can't help it, no no)

Everytime I breathe I take you in (AJ: I do)
And my heart beats again (a.j: ohhhh)
Baby I can't help it (Brian: Baby I can't help it)
Keep me drowning in your love
Every time I try to rise above
(Brian: Everytime I try to rise, rise above)

Brian: I'm swept away by love

Baby I can't help it

AJ: You keep me drowning in.... your love

I must be honest I HATE THE BACKSTREET BOYS, but this song is quite good, I like the lyrics, very very emotional, with a lot of feeling, when I heard it word for word, I recognize the quality of this song, when you really love someone and you want to go crawling under the feet of this person begging pardon, sing this song, and you will be loved forever
