Mason Temple as Hunter singing "I Can Barely Breathe" on Netflix's 'Ginny & Georgia'

BRB, Swooning Over Hunter's Song For Ginny On 'Ginny & Georgia'


It's hard not to fall in love with the characters on Netflix's Ginny & Georgia, especially when romance is at the center of the storylines. Love triangles, estranged partners, and secret flings abound in the 10-episode first season. While every character has their own allure, Ginny's boyfriend, Hunter, might be the most charming of them all — thanks in large part to his sweet serenade for Ginny on the show. After learning the lyrics to Hunter's song, "I Can Barely Breathe," on Ginny & Georgia, there's a good chance you'll be swooning right along with Ginny and her MANG pals.

The series, which dropped on Netflix on Feb. 24, follows 15-year-old Ginny Miller (Antonia Gentry) and her younger brother Austin (Diesel La Torraca) after their mother, Georgia Miller (Brianne Howey), uprooted the family from Texas to a picturesque New England town called Wellsbury. It's there Ginny meets her new bestie Maxine (Sara Waisglass), her secret love interest Marcus, and her adorable boyfriend Hunter (Mason Temple).

Hunter's good looks and kind heart already make him the dream teen BF, and his musical talent sweetens the deal. Throughout the first season, he does everything from play guitar to tap dance, but it's the song he wrote for Ginny that'll really take your ~breath~ away.

The song, "I Can Barely Breathe" was written for the show by Greg Shulman and Agatha Kaspar and is performed by Temple and Rebecca Ablack (who plays Padma in the show). Hunter and his band performed the song at the town's Battle of the Bands competition, which came at the perfect time since Ginny was questioning her connection with Hunter after sexting him and not receiving a reply.

To show her how he really felt about her, Hunter performed the song at the competition, earning not only first place, but Ginny's heart as well. After really listening to the lyrics, it's easy to see why.


I can barely breathe when you are near

And I'm really, really, really scared you're gonna disappear

I can't breathe when you are near

Verse 1

I don't know how to tell you

There's a million things I wanna say

From the moment I met you my heart grew

And I think of you every day

Chorus 1

I can barely breathe when you are near

When my life was in the darkness

You suddenly appeared

You say words that I wanna hear

I can barely breathe when you are near

Verse 2

You mean everything and more to me

That's all I wanted you to know

And when I hold you tightly

I'll never let you go

Chorus 2

I can't breathe when you are near

And I really, really wanna drown your worries and your fears

With you I cry no tears

And I can barely breathe when you are near
