about

Second Wind is about just hanging around in a bit of a rut, like being on a sail boat going nowhere, wondering when the breeze will blow. From the Perfect Gentlemen the song features Stuart Naylor on drums and backing vocals, Lol Sugar on bass and backing vocals, and Greg Millard on guitar and saxophone.

lyrics

Second Wind
(Bruce Pumpa)

I’m stuck in a ditch, I’m stuck in a hole
I need to stich me up some soul
I’m stuck in a rut on a well worn track
Not going forward, not going back
Some days I’m like a ship all at sea
With nothing but sky and sea all around me
Sometimes I need a second wind
To come along and just blow me in

(Chorus)
Second wind, second wind, I’m a ship all at sea
Won’t you come along and rescue me
Second wind, second wind, won’t you begin
To come my way and please bring me in

I’m up the creek without a paddle
I'm stuck on the bench and starting to addle
These dull days can bring you down
I feel like a blacksmith in a one horse town
Some days I don’t know how to begin
I’m out on a limb with no way to get in
Sometimes I need a second wind
To come along and help me get in

(Chorus)

High above
I’m watching the birds as they’re migrating
High above
My head’s in the clouds, just contemplating

(Saxophone Solo)

I feel there’s coming a change in the weather
This just cannot go on forever
I look at the trees and the leaves start to go
And I start to notice the soft breezes blow
Second wind, second wind you’re a breath of fresh air
Making me feel how much I care
Second wind, second wind, now I feel you begin
I know pretty soon that my ship will come in

(New chorus)
Second wind, second wind, was a ship all at sea
And you come along and rescue me
Second wind, second wind, now you begin
To come my way and you bring me in
(Repeat)
