Bated Breath

To love, is to be vulnerable.

I don’t want to talk too long, cause the feelings keep coming on too strong
Like the midnight man at the break of dawn, I feel so out of place
Prowling like a devil dog in the moonlit fog, staying a step ahead of the miring’ bog
It was never supposed to take this long, but I digress

Tell me what I did so wrong
And sing it as an old sad song

While I’m here waiting with bated breath
I’m a special sort of stupid to ever have loved like this
Still waiting with bated breath
Don’t call me foolish until you’ve loved like this

Would you bend your ear for a chance to hear, a butterfly flutter on the atmosphere
Where the only voice, I fear, is not my own
Crying out Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost, with a band of demons losing all control
And you know right where they go is to my head

Tell me what I did so wrong
And sing it as an old sad song

While I’m here waiting with bated breath
I’m a special sort of stupid to ever have loved like this
Still waiting with bated breath
Don’t call me foolish until you’ve loved like this

Don’t call me dumb, don’t call me dumb
You’ll fall in love soon enough
Don’t call me dumb, don’t call me dumb
You’ll see for yourself soon enough

Don’t call me dumb, don’t call me dumb
You’ll fall in love sure enough
Don’t call me dumb, don’t call me dumb
You’ll see for yourself sure enough

And tell me what I did so wrong
And sing it as an old sad song

While I’m here waiting with bated breath
I’m a special sort of stupid to ever have loved like this
Still waiting with bated breath
Don’t call me foolish until you’ve loved like this

While I’m here waiting with bated breath
I’m a special sort of stupid to ever have loved like this
Still waiting with bated breath
Don’t call me foolish until you’ve loved like
