"Breathless" as written by Anthony St. Aubyn Kelly, Mark Anthony Myrie and Stephen John Marsden....
Kiss your hand with permission
To show that you are royalty tonight
The radio is playing the song
That got us up to dance around
The record is spinning around and around
To the sounds of change

Breathless, with not much to say
Breathless, with not much to say
You sent me to the top of the world
You sent me to the top of the world
Breathless, with not much to say
Breathless, with not much to say

And we can stop to see you smile
Out of the blue, to colored sky
While the fireworks are lighting up your eyes
And everything is sitting still
Paints a picture such of you
It is you, honey, it's you
Every night at this time
We start to whisper

The future's hopes will keep the stars away
The radio is playing the song
That got us up to dance around
The record is spinning around and around
To the sounds of change

And I'm turning the dial
(Turning, turning, turning, turning)
Spinning for reception
(Spinning, spinning, spinning, spinning)

I'm not restless
You're the view
The radio is playing our song
The radio is playing our song

Breathless, with not much to say
Breathless, with not much to say
You sent me to the top of the world
You sent me to the top of the world

    General CommentI'm not a huge fan of the whole "emo" thing, but this song is well... cute. It makes me happy in that sort of teenage-romance thing. Good song....

    General CommentThere's a verse missing here. After the first instance of "breathless with not much to say/you sent me to the top of the world/breathless with not much to say", there is a second verse:

    Driving around the town, I can't recover
    The spell you put me under, it's just too late
    This radio is playing the song
    That got us up to dance around
    The record is spinning around and around
    To the sounds of change
