breakdown lyrics – david coverdale

getting near the end, now i knew the time was right for a breakdown
megaton surprise but your eyes never made it a shakedown
shot you full of rock and roll, couldn’t make your soul
didn’t burn you to the bone

do what the man says
take the money and run

but, i never saw the splendor
in stealing all your gold
taking all your silver
and doing what i’m told

i never saw the tears but i knew you cried for rhythm and blues
screaming like a wildcat i knew that i had nothing to lose
shot you full of rock and roll, couldn’t make your soul
didn’t burn you to the bone

do what the man says
take the money and run

but, i never saw the splendor
in stealing all your gold
taking all your silver
and doing what i’m told

it’s just a breakdown
breakdown
breakdown
breakdown
oh, look out

shaking like a leaf in the wind see me blowing away
never see me fall on the ground till i’ve had my say
shot you full of rock and roll, couldn’t make your soul
didn’t burn you to the bone

do what the man says
take the money and run

but, i never saw the splendor
in stealing all your gold
taking all your silver
and doing what i’m told

it’s just a breakdown
breakdown
breakdown
it’s just a breakdown
oh, look out

[incomprehensible]

getting near the end, now i knew the time was right for a breakdown
megaton surprise but your eyes never made it a shakedown
shot you full of rock and roll, couldn’t make your soul
didn’t burn you to the bone

do what the man says
take the money and run

but, i never saw the splendor
in stealing all your gold
taking all your silver
and doing what i’m told

it’s just a breakdown
breakdown
breakdown
breakdown
oh, look out
