I gotta say, she's got a way
that's a bullet-proof style and an eighty-proof smile
now she's got 'em all beat, so hang out the white sheet
but you can call in the fifth fleet
'cause I'm staying in the front seat
'til I can feel a heart beat

you went looking for a heart to break
and babe - I didn't feel you coming
there's a tail that would be tough to shake and darlin' that's why
I'm already running
'cause I'm a believer... but I'm looking for a breather

I gotta know, aside from the show
when the work is all done, what you're doing for fun
if you're playing the queen or just making the scene
and you've run out of rungs on the tip of all tongues
just keep filling your lungs

when you know just what you want
who knows - just maybe I can help arrange it
when my mind's made up and my heart is set
I know you wouldn't want to change it
well, me neither... 'cause I'd rather have a breather

there's a lot of air around you, and if I'd never found you
I know I'd still be seething, so darling just keep breathing
soon we must all embark on a rocket straight into the dark...

with a spark in your eye and some big fish to fry
you hauled off and let fly as the sun lit the sky
now you're down in a zone and you like it alone
but any fool could have known you can heave up a stone
just as far as you've flown

maybe you're running bound and blind
and scared with a chip upon your shoulder
maybe there's nothing left to know and everything keeps getting clearer
as the night grows colder
well, it could be either... or you really need a breather
