Save You

Album: All I Ever Wanted (2009)
  • I can tell,
    I can tell,
    How much you hate this.
    Deep down inside,
    You know it's killing me.
    I can call, wish you well,
    And try to change this.
    But nothing I can say,
    Would change anything.

    Where were my senses?
    I left them all behind.
    Why did I turn away, away?

    I wish I could save you.
    I wish I could say to you,
    I'm not going nowhere.
    I wish I could say to you,
    It's gonna be alright,
    It's gonna be alright.

    I didn't mean,
    Didn't mean,
    To leave you stranded.
    Went away cause I,
    Didn't want to face the truth.
    Reaching out,
    Reach for me,
    Empty handed.
    You don't know if I care.
    You're trying to find the proof.

    There were times I'd wonder,
    Could I have eased your pain?
    Why did I turn away, away?

    I wish I could save you.
    I wish I could say to you,
    I'm not going nowhere.
    I wish I could say to you,
    It's gonna be alright,
    It's gonna be alright,
    It's gonna be alright,
    It's gonna be alright.

    We can pretend nothing's changed.
    Pretend it's all the same.
    And there will be no pain,
    Tonight.
    It's gonna be alright,
    It's gonna be alright,
    It's gonna be alright,
    It's gonna be alright.

    I'm not going nowhere.
    I wish I could say to you,
    It's gonna be alright,
    It's gonna be alright,
    It's gonna be alright,
    It's gonna be alright,
    It's gonna be alright. Writer/s: AIMEE PROAL, RYAN B. TEDDER
