if you can save me now,
let's go someplace safe and sound.
i'll try not to weigh you down,
but i don't know if i can wait around.
if you can save me now,
let's go someplace safe and sound...

it happened fast, like a camera flash.
the accident - then the aftermath.
not even sure what caused the crash.
if i had the strength, i would probably laugh.
i'm so relaxed.
warm like blood.
layin' on my back in the sun-dried mud.
there's no point in even trying to get up.
i got my eyes glued to the blue sky above.
and it's been a beautiful summer.
it reminds me of when i was younger.
used to count down to the sound of thunder
i smell fresh cut grass mixed with the burnt rubber.
and i don't need to take a glance to know,
cause' i can hear the traffic as it passes slow.
they' on the other side of the window -
checkin' out the damage, lookin' at the show.
i can hear the sirens get near.
mama used to tell us to plug our ears.
it get's so loud and clear until every other noise disappears.

and right now i'm tryin' to block it out,
by imagining the sounds that come out' your mouth.
i saw two birds fly south,
and i thought about the day we bought that house.
memories seem so real. just like everything that i feel.
tried to coast on all five wheels.
i wanna cry, i keep the tears concealed.
i hear voices; footsteps.
a cops radio off to the left.
the noise made me reflect.
somewhere along the way i must've caught my breath.
drifting. dreaming. and then i heard somebody screaming.
but i don't even want to know the reason,
so i kept my focus on the view i'm seeing.
started thinkin' bout the ones thats gone.
everybody from the past that passed on.
you played your cards, had to stand strong.
but it ain't that hard to sing a sad song.
we all got scars and broken parts.
but most of the marks stay close to my heart.
waitin' for the down-poor to start.
the rain clouds over my head got dark.
and then i saw my angel cut through the storm -
she was in a firefighter uniform.
i close my eyes so i can see some more
and for the first time ever i remember bein' born.

if you can save me now,
let's go someplace safe and sound.
i'll try not to weigh you down,
but i don't know if i can wait around.

i say ...

if you can save me now,
let's go someplace safe and sound.
i'll try not to weigh you down,
but i don't know if i can wait around.

i say...

but i don't know if i can wait around, i say..

i'll try not to weigh you down, but i don't know if i can wait around, i say...

if you can save me now.
