  • Take a breath, I pull myself together
    Just another step until I reach the door
    You'll never know the way it tears me up inside to see you...
    I wish that I could tell you something to take it all away

    Sometimes I wish I could save you,
    And there's so many things that I want you to know
    I won't give up 'til it's over
    If it takes you forever, I want you to know...

    When I hear your voice,
    It's drowning in the whispers
    It's just skin and bones,
    There's nothing left to take
    And no matter what I do,
    I can't make you feel better
    If only I could find the answer to help me understand...

    Sometimes I wish I could save you,
    And there's so many things that I want you to know
    I won't give up 'til it's over
    If it takes you forever, I want you to know...

    If you fall, stumble down, I'll pick you up off the ground
    If you lose faith in you, I'll give you strength to pull through
    Tell me you won't give up,
    'Cause I'll be waiting if you fall
    You know I'll be there for you

    If only I could find the answer to take it all away...

    Sometimes I wish I could save you,
    And there's so many things that I want you to know
    I won't give up 'til it's over
    If it takes you forever, I want you to know...

    I wish I could save you...
    I want you to know...
    I wish I could save you... Writer/s: ARNOLD DAVID LANNI, ARNOLD LANNI, CHARLES-ANDRE COMEAU, PIERRE BOUVIER
