  • I wanted to be like you
    I wanted everything
    So I tried to be like you
    And I got swept away

    I didn't know that it was so cold
    And you needed someone to show you the way
    So I took your hand and we figured out that
    When the tide comes I'd take you away

    If you want to I can save you
    I can take you away from here
    So lonely inside
    So busy out there
    And all you wanted was somebody who cares

    I'm sinking slowly, so hurry hold me
    Your hand is all I have to keep me hanging on
    Please can you tell me
    So I can finally see
    Where you go when you're gone

    If you want to I can save you
    I can take you away from here
    So lonely inside
    So busy out there
    And all you wanted was somebody who cares

    All you wanted was somebody who cares
    If you need me you know I'll be there
    Oh, oh, whoa, yeah

    If you want to I can save you
    I can take you away from here (I can take you away)
    So lonely inside
    So busy out there
    And all you wanted was somebody who cares

    Oh oh (and all you wanted was somebody who cares)
    Oh oh oh oh

    If you want to I can save you (if you want to, oh)
    I can take you away from here (I can take you away)
    So lonely inside (from here)
    So busy out there (oh oh)
    And all you wanted was somebody who cares

    Please can you tell me
    So I can finally see
    Where you go when you're gone Writer/s: Michelle Branch
