  • There's an old friendly breeze that blows in the gulf of Mexico
    Somehow it always knows when I'm feelin' low
    So I'm gonna anchor down and wait till it comes around
    Leave the rest of the world behind, that's how I'll pass the time

    Till I catch my second wind, get back up and gain control again
    Find the strength I lost back when you stopped loving me
    I guess I'll just stay out here until I know the coast is clear
    Sit and watch the tide roll in till I catch my second wind

    There's a peace in the way I feel when the water's still
    And as long as it's calm out here I've got time to kill
    But as soon as it starts to stir I'll lose track of the way things were
    Float away on the open air, but I'm not going anywhere

    Till I catch my second wind, get back up and gain control again
    Find the strength I lost back when you stopped loving me
    I guess I'll just stay out here until I know the coast is clear
    Sit and watch the tide roll in till I catch my second wind
