Lyrics

every word I say slips away
why should I say anything at all?
when I could more easily hide away,
and come back to myself when I am ready?

the ground is getting sucked dry by the sun --
even my eyes cried hoping for the rain to come
and make the world green, how I remember
and make my life seem so much better

we used to drive and drive and drive --
forget my life, leave everything behind me...
but I could not forget her face
so I turned back to that far-gone place
and knelt at her feet

but only I can save me

I can't erase the many times I sought forgiveness
from your eyes instead in of mine
but from now on, you should know,
I'll take my chances with my own humility

only I can save me
only I can save me
