I'll tell you the latest story
If you've got the time to listen
I met her in Cincinnati
Her bruised heart was mine for taking
I saw right through her body
And stole what I'd been needing

And I heard her cry behind me
I said, 'sorry girl, but I've been
Barely breathing,
Barely seeing,
Barely feeling
And I couldn't leave it alone'

As I drove across the country
My new heart was slowly beating
The police were right behind me
With guns drawn and sirens calling

And I'm running, cos this was something
I needed more than she did
But no time for conversation
No one understood that I was
Barely breathing
Barely seeing
Barely feeling
And I couldn't leave it

And I walked you home the other night
Followed you home the other night
I saw you home the other night
I saw you go...

We buried ourselves in progress
So we could keep control
City lights far behind us
I'd never been so cold
And we were out there on our own

Barely breathing
Barely seeing
Barely feeling
Barely needing
Barely breathing
Barely breathing
Barely breathing

And I walked you home the other night
Followed you home the other night
I saw you home the other night
I saw you in control
