Save me, save me

I'm goin' down, down for the third time
I'm goin' down, down for the third time
Drownin' in tears from my heart that's hurtin'
Drownin' in tears from a love that's uncertain

I'm lost in a world without your love
A sea of emptiness
The love we knew is bein' washed away
Don't think I can last, my heart is sinkin' fast

I'm goin' down, down for the third time
Tryin' to hold on to a love that's gone
Drownin' in the love that keeps me breathin'
Drownin' in the fear that my arms you're leavin'

Bring back that love we knew
Darlin' let me live again
A little tenderness to me start showin'
Fill my heart with love till it's overflowin'

I'm goin' down, down for the third time
Tryin' to hold on to a love that's gone
I'm goin' down, down for the third time
So once you save this heart of mine

Goin' down, down for the third time
Goin' down, down for the third time
I'm like a ship all alone on a ragin' sea
You got me tossin' and a-turnin' and I can't get free

Reach out your hand for me
Darlin' save what's left of our love
I'll forgive your lies and alibis
If you'll wipe my cryin' eyes

I'm goin' down, down for the third time
So won't you save this heart of mine
I've loved too long, I love too strong
Now little boy you know you're doin' me right

Come on and save me
Come on and save me
Come on and save me
I'm goin' down, down for the third time
