"How Do I Live" is a 1997 song, written by Diane Warren. It was released originally by Trisha Yearwood and shortly afterward by Leann Rimes.
The song was originally intended for release as a single for the 1997 action blockbuster Con Air soundtrack. Warren wrote the song for Rimes to sing. The film producers felt that Rimes' version had too much of a pop feeling to it, and requested that she re-record it to fit their standards. She refused, and the producers chose Trisha Yearwood to record the song. .
