maybe once in a life-time, (or hopefully more), you meet some one and everything you ever thought you thought comes crashing down in the most refreshing,  delightful way....

Breaking Down.

your breaking down   my inhibitions

F#                        C#

my protection,    what's in the way

F#                        B                    

value I cling to,  castle I hide in

 C#                                          

You’re breaking it, breaking it down

 

Ebm,   Bmj7,  F#                C#6

somehow, since I have met you

Ebm,   Bmj7,         F#        C#6

somehow, my life has changed

Ebm,   Bmj7,  F#                C#6

somehow, since I have met you

      B                                                                                                      C#

it's breaking down, breaking down, breaking down, all breaking down

 

you're breaking down    my resistance

what I thought I thought,   ground I stood on

you stepped in the light     my whole world has shattered

you're breaking it,   breaking it down

 

somehow,  you're under my skin

somehow,   you've found a way in 

somehow,  I'm up to my chin

and it's breaking down, breaking down, breaking down, all breaking down

 

E                                              G                           A                           C#

you changed my views  - you lit the fuse  -   I seem to lose  -  I can't refuse  -                

 

inst.  F#  B  F#  C#, ---- F#  B  F#  C#,  ------E,    B,   F#

 

you're breaking down    these preconceptions

this frozen soul,    walls around my mind

complacency ,     who I thought I was

you're breaking it, breaking it down

 

somehow,  you turned me over

somehow,  helped me discover

somehow,  cannot recover 

and it's breaking down, breaking down, breaking down, all breaking down

C#                                         F#

you're in and its breaking downpandora_s_box_and_abstract_paintings_by_me_resized.jpgcrucifix_by_me_whole_best_quality_resized.jpg
