  • Wait, I'm wrong
    Should have done better than this
    Please, I'll be strong
    I'm finding it hard to resist
    So show me what I'm looking for

    Save me, I'm lost
    Oh lord, I've been waiting for you
    I'll pay any cost
    Save me from being confused
    Show me what I'm looking for
    Show me what I'm looking for, oh lord

    Don't let go
    I've wanted this far too long
    Mistakes become regrets
    I've learned to love abuse
    Please show me what I'm looking for

    Save me, I'm lost
    Oh lord, I've been waiting for you
    I'll pay any cost
    Save me from being confused
    Show me what I'm looking for
    Show me what I'm looking for, oh lord

    Show me what I'm looking for
    Show me what I'm looking for
    Show me what I'm looking for

    Save me, I'm lost
    Oh lord, I've been waiting for you
    I'll pay any cost
    Just save me from being confused
    Wait, I'm wrong
    I can't do better than this
    I'll pay any cost
    Save me from being confused
    Show me what I'm looking for
    Show me what I'm looking for
    Show me what I'm looking for
    Show me what I'm looking for, oh lord Writer/s: Chad Wolfinbarger, Tobias Erik Karlsson

  • Megan from Stevenson, AlThis song i amazing! Me and my buddy Hannah sing this together! lol We love this song!
  • Justin from Georgetown, Ini hated this song at first being that it played 5x a day when i was at work then about a week after that i started singing it and haven't stopped i like their other single better thou
  • Cale from Monroe, LaI can't believe that this beautiful song hasn't gotten more air play. Maybe is it a romantic song, but I prefer to believe that it is about a man looking for a closer relationship with God that has eluded so many people, just as it has with me. Seems like a lot of radio stations won't play a song with even a hint of religious overtones. I can't get enough of this song. In fact, it was responsible for me dropping another appx. 4K on my sound system.
  • Arezu from Irvine, CaThis song is about a person who desperately is waiting for the Lord to "save him from being confused" and to show him what his path in life is. The person is tempted to sin but does not want to lose themself and so calls for the Lord to not "let go" of them and to help them.

    This song can also, for some, be seen as not a Christian song, but a love song. In this case, it is about a man who is tempted by other woman's temptations but does not want to lose his love for one girl and so asks her to show him that they can be together even though it has been some time that he has loved her and wanted to be with her "I've wanted this far too long". Mistakes to allow for a relationship turn to regrets and he hopes for her to save him from being lost and confused by what he truly wants or what he is looking for.
  • Ashleigh from ?????, MoCome on ppl!! Where are the comments?!! This song rocks!!!
  • Ashleigh from ?????, MoWow. I'm the first to comment. Let me say, I love this song. I crank it up whenever I hear it. This song is about severe longing. It's saying: I know I screwed up before but "save me. I'm lost"
