Breathe Softly (1982)

Why do I find it so hard to talk to you?
It’s like we live in a charade.
So let me take off your role, but if your mind gets cold
While I’m holding it naked in my hand,
I’ll breathe on it softly.

I can feel your soul like a ghost in the mist
Yes you’ve touched, touched my existence.
My emotion’s been kissed, but promis if your mind gets cold
While I’m holding it naked in my hand,
I’ll breath on it softly.

But I can’t let you go out like this.
There are puppets outside, your soul will catch cold,
I’ll help you into your ambition and wrap you up in your role
So your mind won’t get cold, I’ll breathe on it softly.

Why do I find it so hard to talk to you?
But when we do, it comes alive.
So help me take off my role, but if my mind gets cold
While you’re holding it naked in your hand,
You’ll breathe on it softly.

I can feel your soul like a ghost in the mist,
But I’m scared, scared that you’ll vanish.
But while you’re still here, please promis if my mind gets cold
While you’re holding it naked in your hand,
You’ll breathe on it softly.

But you can’t let me go out like this,
There are puppets outside, my soul will catch cold.
So help me into my ambition and wrap me up in my role
So my mind won’t get cold, and breathe on it softly.
