You stepped in and dark turned to light
I knew right there you were the breath of life
Just when I'd given up the fight
I knew right there you were the breath of life
Just when the morning air lost it's bitter bite
You never think your heart will butterfly
Ballerina don't you dance your life away
Those years meant nothing till this cold December day

You stepped back to say goodnight
I knew right there you were the breath of life
We looked up at a blinding light
I knew right there you were the breath of life
I never thought that I could say those words again
I think you know the ones I'm sure you know the ones
I've been hiding alone in the night
On and on like a dream that never ends
So come on out don't say goodnight
Out of the shadows to the neon light
Meet you down where that Dixieland plays
Leave all your troubles gonna dance 'em away

Drop my hands by my side let the hours slip away
Don't say nothing let the music play
Twenty years on down when the time is right
I'll turn around and know you were the breath of life
