Save Me From Myself

Album: Burning The Days (2009)
  • The clouds are rollin' in
    Who will watch them?
    The waves are strong
    The boat is gone
    I hope they're swimming

    Little boy lost in the woods
    Where's the clearing?
    The town is out
    They're calling loud
    But he's not hearing

    It seems to me I'm always miles away
    Looking for my old face

    Save me from myself
    I can't relate
    We're mouth to mouth
    And still I suffocate
    There's nothing left
    Inside for me to break
    Save me from myself

    The bullet in the yard
    Is slowly rusting
    The bottles crack
    The kid's come back
    And I'm just looking

    The wine is on the floor
    The candles flicker
    Your eyes fall
    And I'm appalled
    It's all just cinder

    It seems to me we're always miles apart
    Trying to find another place to start

    Save me from myself
    I can't relate
    We're mouth to mouth
    And still I suffocate
    There's nothing left
    Inside for me to break
    Save me from myself

    The sailors never left
    They knew the weather
    When they were found
    They were having drinks together

    They found the little boy
    In the grocery
    Happy endings all around
    And still they haunt me

    Save me from myself
    I can't relate
    We're mouth to mouth
    And still I suffocate
    There's nothing left
    Inside of me to break
    Save me from myself

    Save me from myself
    There's nothing left inside me
    There's nothing left Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
