  • Standing on the edge of morning
    Scent of sex and new found glory
    Playing as she's pulling back her hair
    She drives away, she's feeling worthless
    Used again, but nothing's different
    She'd stay the night but knows he doesn't care

    Home by three to deafening quiet
    The porch light's off, guess they forgot it
    She'd cry herself to sleep but she don't dare

    And she wants to be a model
    She wants to hear she's beautiful
    She's beautiful

    [Chorus]
    I want to save you
    I want to save you
    I need you, save me too
    I want to save you

    Dressed by dawn and out the door
    No lights, she memorized the floor
    So she could leave without being detected
    She works till three, it's uniform
    She dreams that he'll come by the store
    She prays for days when boys mean she's protected

    And she wants someone to see her
    She needs to hear she's beautiful
    She's beautiful

    [Chorus]

    And she won't sleep
    She won't sleep at all

    I want to save you
    I want to save you
    I need you, save me too
    I want to save you

    Let me save you Writer/s: ANDREW ROSS MCMAHON
