Breathless **

Breathless
Music by Flynn - Words by Antje Duvekot

So youve come to this place
Youve come a long, long way.
Got dust in your hair and after all this time
Your still, crazy as hell.
There were rag doll princes, junk yard queens
Blessed by the homeless on dirty streets
First they drag you down then they fall at your feet.

And all the girls with their curls
Their button down and pearls.
You chased them down and never cared if they were real.
They touched your hand and took your rose,
Then they blew away like smoke.
But they sure left you breathless.

Down the road you rambled and you roamed.
You carried your home on the soles of your shoes.
You were looking for truth and a love to put some meat on your bones.
You lost yourself inside those sounds
The dimestore richs and the carnival crowds
With you shooting star always burning out.

And all the girls with their curls
Their button down and pearls.
You chased them down and never cared if they were real.
They touched your hand and took your rose,
Then they blew away like smoke.
But they sure left you breathless.
