  • Got some bad news this morning
    Which in turn made my day
    When this someone spoke I listened
    All of a sudden has less and less to say
    Oh how could this be
    All this time
    I lived vicariously

    Who's gonna save my soul now
    Who's gonna save my soul now
    How will my story ever be told now
    How will my story be told now

    Made me feel like somebody
    Like somebody else
    Although he was imitated often
    It felt like I was being myself
    This is a shame that someone else's song
    Was totally and completely depended on

    Who's gonna save my soul now
    Who's gonna save my soul now

    I wonder if I'll live to grow old now
    Getting high 'cause I feel so low down
    I may be just a little selfish
    All I have is the memory
    Yet I never start to wonder
    Was it possible you were hurting worse than me
    Still my hunger turns to greed
    'Cause what about what I need,

    An' oh who's gonna save my soul now
    Who's gonna save my soul now

    Oh I know I'm out of control now
    Tired enough to lay my own soul down Writer/s: Brian Jospeh Burton, Francesco De Masi, Thomas Callaway
