lyrics

I will save your life, even when you are a craven,
Lying, heartless, scrounging bastard and you’re not worth saving,
I will see right through you to the part that’s right,
Yes I will, yes I will, yes I will save your life.

You try to hide behind your talent, honey that won’t get you far.
I’m here to tell you one thing that’s a fact:
Boy I could keep your moral standards in a single mason jar
With room left over for your good sense and your tact.

You wonder why this history is never quite correct,
You wonder why the world won’t treat you right. Well if I see
You jump into the deep end with those weights around your neck,
When I pull you from the water, baby don’t put up a fight.

I saw you walk straight into traffic with your hands upon your head,
You’re broken and you treat me like a shard… Remember when
You kicked me in the face while we were lying in my bed (Goddamn it)
Love should never have to be this hard.

I’ll kiss the lip you busted in a barroom brawl,
I’ll listen to your whiny little voice every time you call,
And your total lack of faith may be a blessing after all,
‘Cause when you hit rock bottom, babe you won’t have far to fall.

I see through your pathetic lies, I know that you’ve got nothing planned,
You can’t avoid my eyes but baby don’t misunderstand.
