Bobby Brown has debuted a new song he wrote about life since Whitney Houston's death ... in which Bobby admits he "messed up pretty bad" and begs his late ex-wife ... "Don't let me die."

An emotional Brown -- sporting sunglasses and leather pants -- performed the song on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" ... featuring the lyrics, "I didn’t realize that every breath I took was from you ... You were my air.”

Brown also sings,"I guess I messed up pretty bad ... I didn’t know who you were ... I didn’t know what we had. Now I’m stuck living in the past ... trying to get the pieces back ... but I guess now you’re gone."

Brown is releasing the song on his new album, which drops in June ... just 4 months after Whitney died.

Definition of a bad song: crammed in too many lyrics to try and make a point

All Bobby has accomplished is that he can carry a tune. What the hell does "Don't let me die" mean? Emotional on Leno? I can make tears, I just have to think of my Grandfather. Unfortunately his daughter is too young, but if I was Whitney's brother, I would slap the crap out of this bottom feeder!! There is a place in the hereafter for people like, for example, Bobby Brown, Jermaine Jackson and of course Joseph Jackson!

The song doesn't sound good...seems he is pouring is heart out after she is gone...lesson learned let people know how you feel while they are alive.

RIP Whitney...Best of luck Bobbi Brown

If he was so dedicated to her, then why didn't he punch Ray J's lights out? From the way this sounds, Bobby is now lacking in the performance department but this is on Jay Leno and nothing sounds good on that show.

Bobby is not to be blamed. Whitney made the choice on her own. The consequences were grave. We love you Whitney

Yeah, NOW he admits he messed up. Why didn't he admit that when Whitney was alive? He physically and emotionally abused that woman. I can't believe that prick slapped and spit on her. Whitney was the talented one, and I believe Bobby couldn't deal with that...he was jealous of her.
