One day I'll get home before the sun hits the blinds
And give you - I'll give you something to remember me by
That's the way I am
It's what I got in mind but I don't know if I can
You gotta shoot your gun - don't expect me to dance
Hold me up to the spotlight but

Don't, don't hold your breath
Don't hold your breath
Don't hold your breath
Don't hold your breath

These empty pockets are my deepest friends
Full of nothing but good intentions
That's the way it is
It may not be much but I can blow you a kiss
I've been wrong - I've been wrong once before
I'll be all right tomorrow but

Don't, don't hold your breath
Don't hold your breath
Don't hold your breath
Don't hold your breath

I may be lazy or a living wreck
I won't be swayed by your expectations
That's the way it is
It may not be much but you know what to kiss
I've been wrong - I've been wrong once before
I'll be all right tomorrow but

Don't, don't hold your breath
Don't hold your breath
Don't hold your breath
Don't hold your breath
