If it hurts to breathe, open the window

from The Weeknd – House of Balloons / Glass Table Girls Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The girl is having trouble breathing but instead of getting help, the Weeknd just tells her to open a window. The implication is that she isn’t going anywhere. He’s gonna have his way with her, as she belongs to him.

They’re probably smoking, which is why it may hurt for her to breathe.
