Ellis Paul — I'm The One To Save lyrics

He's in an emotional prison
The self-inflicted kind
You're like a nun on a mission
To help that boy unwind
I said, "nobody's ever escaped alcatraz
It's too cold in san francisco bay"
You just turned and watched the buildings pass by
And said, "i wouldn't have him any other way"

I can't believe you didn't save me
When the angels came to watch me drown
And though the pirates behaved quite bravely
They took the treasure when I went down

(chorus>
Hey, hey
I'm drowning
Hey, hey
Wave by wave
Hey, hey
Heart pounding
Hey, hey
I'm the one to save
I am the one to save

The wind turned cold on the ferry
We were in the shadow of the golden gate
I said "there's a movie at the castro you might like"
You said, "i think it's getting kind of late"
Now six months later you'll come and tell me over coffee
That you've turned to someone else's hand
So you're onto another is it the martyr or the mother
That's attracted to a straight jacket man

I couldn't believe you didn't save me
When the angels came to watch me drown
And though the pirates behaved quite bravely
They stole the treasure when I went down

[Chorus:]
And if I told you
What would it change
What would it change
What would it change
