Ellen Foley – Another Breath lyrics

By Bob Riley

It's been a long time since I've seen your face
But I keep holding on to the pictures in my mind
I don't mind waiting boy
I'll give it some time
'Cause you're all I need to get by

But you know how time flies
And the dreams just drift away

(And) darlin'
Another breath is whispering
Another voice has taken me in
Another breath is whispering me away

I keep the candle burning
On the window sill
It gets no dimmer with the passing of time
I never moved the furniture
Don't want to rearrange
I'm still living in the rooms of yesterday

Well you can knock on my door
But I don't stay home much any more

Repeat Chorus

But you know how time flies
And the dreams just drift away

Repeat Chorus and fade
