She Saves Me

Adam Burns 2014

Through the darkness cuts the morning sun
Time to focus, time to fly
Return to face the day with our heads untied
Watching all the pieces come undone

Obscure the darkness, ignore the rain
Sitting in the cheap seats on a morning train
Crowds of faces on a one way ride
We're all smiles on the surface but we're dying inside

It's when she
Saves me, makes me, rolls me over when she
Shakes me, and wakes me, all the fires come to life
Breathes me, and frees me, turns me over when she
Needs me, completes me, cuts the darkness like a knife

Grab a taxi, pay the jacked up fare
Driving like a race car but he just don't care
Precious memories, we just cast them aside
We're all smiles on the surface but we're sad inside

It's when she
Saves me, makes me, rolls me over when she
Shakes me, and wakes me all the fires come to life
Breathes me, and frees me, turns me over when she
Needs me, completes me, through the darkness shines a light

Sometimes we feel like an ocean
Unbroken, dreams of what we're meant to be
Sometimes we capture the moment
Can't control it, then we live

And then she
Saves me, makes me, rolls me over when she
Shakes me, and wakes me all the fires come to life
Breathes me, and frees me, turns me over when she
Needs me, completes me, cuts the darkness like a knife

Saves me, makes me, rolls me over when she
Shakes me, and wakes me all the fires come to life
Breathes me, and frees me, turns me over when she
Needs me, completes me, through the darkness shines a light
