    Baby, you take my breath away

    So, how does one say this in russian, and if anyone knows, i'd like to know what it is in polish also!

    Personally, I think it may be;

    Ты мои дыхание захватишь.

    Спасибо

    You can't say in Russian like you can in English "ты перехватила мое дыхание". You need to describe this process in roundabout way, like
    У меня перехватило дыхание (дух), когда я тебя увидел.
    It's good enough, but if you need something laconic you'll have to go for something completely different, like
    Я от тебя без ума.
    Ты меня очаровала.

    etc, etc.


    I've just remembered:
    У меня от тебя дух захватывает.
    That's it, more or less.

    Is it Aerosmith's song?

    У меня от тебя дух захватывает.

    Is that literally;

    'I have from you my breath takenaway'?


    Also, its not an aerosmith song, I just want to know for fun really


    And if anyone knows it in polish...

    Hardly. I don't actually understand it.
    'I have, because of you, my breath taken away' is more likely.
