  • Look what you've done for me
    You're makin' more fun for me.
    Troubadour me,destined to be
    Set in my ways-stuck in my daze.

    You were the butterfly,
    Winkin' at me
    Makin' my fires fly.
    Brought me romance,
    Taught me to dance
    Makin' me win,makin' me grin.
    Schoolin' me.

    Breakin' away,your love has
    Opened eyes that couldn't see.
    Breakin' away,your beacon in
    The night discovered me.

    Show me some parachutes
    (Away,today,sail away)
    As long as I'm here,bring me some
    Climbing boots.
    Open the door,give me some more.

    Fasten me in-loosen the pin.
    Pull for me.

    Breakin' away,your love has opened
    Eyes that couldn't see.
    Breakin' away,your beacon in the
    Night discovered me. Writer/s: AL JARREAU, JAY GRAYDON, TOM CANNING
