  • Save me...
    Save me...

    She's not a star
    But she'll go far
    So she's telling all her friends
    She's only young and just begun
    To see clearly
    In her eyes

    Nothing turned out like she thought it would
    (Thought it would)
    And I was waiting right there where she stood

    She said: save me
    From this wicked world I'm livin' in
    She said: save me
    I don't wanna lose, I wanna win
    I can't run and I can't hide
    (Can't run, can't hide away)
    I can't run and I can't hide
    (Can't run, can't hide away)
    She said: save me
    (Save me, girl)
    She said save me...
    Ooh!

    All on her own
    She's on the phone
    So sincerely...
    Ooh... makin' a joke
    There's no reply
    She wonders why
    And pays the rent one more time

    Everybody's out there on the take
    (On the take)
    And I was there when she began to brake
    (She began to brake)

    She said: save me
    From this wicked world I'm livin' in
    (Save me, baby)
    She said: save me
    I don't wanna lose, I wanna win
    I can't run and I can't hide
    (Can't run, can't hide away)
    I can't run and I can't hide
    (Can't run, can't hide away)
    She said: save me
    (Save me, girl)
    She said save me...
    Ooh!

    Everybody's out there on the take
    (On the take)
    And I was there when she began to brake

    She said: save me
    From this wicked world I'm livin' in
    (Save me, girl)
    She said: save me
    I don't wanna lose, I wanna win
    I can't run and I can't hide
    (Can't run, can't hide away)
    I can't run and I can't hide
    (Can't run, can't hide away)
    She said: save me
    (Can't run, can't hide away)
    She said save me...
    (Can't run, can't hide away)

    Save me, girl
    (Save me)
    Save me, girl
    (Can't run, can't hide away)
    Save my soul
    (Save me)
    Save me, girl
    (Can't run, can't hide away)
    Save my soul
    (Save me)
    Save me, girl
    (Can't run, can't hide away)
    Save my soul, baby
    (Save me)
    Save me girl
    (Can't run, can't hide away)
    Ooh...
    (Save me)
    Save me, girl
    (Can't run, can't hide away)
    Save my soul
    (Save me)
    You can't run
    (Can't run, can't hide away)
    You can't hide
    (Save me)
    Come on, baby
    (Can't run, can't hide away)
    Hoo!
    Save my soul...
    Ooh!
