Rise Against — Savior lyrics

[Intro]
It kills me not to know this, but I've all but just forgotten,
What the color of her eyes were and her scars, or how she got them.
As the telling signs of age rain down a single tear is dropping,
Through the valleys of an aging face that this world has forgotten.

[Verse 1]
There is no reconciliation that will put me in my place,
And there is no time like the present to drink these draining seconds.
But seldom do these words ring true when I'm constantly failing you,
Like walls that we just can't break through until we disappear.

[Pre-Chorus]
So tell me now,
If this ain't love then how do we get out?
'Cause I don't know.

[Chorus]
That's when she said "I don't hate you boy,
I just want to save you while there's still something left to save."
That's when I told her "I love you girl,
But I'm not the answer for the questions that you still have."

[Verse 2]
But the day pressed on like crushing weights,
For no man does it ever wait.
Like memories of dying days,
That deafen us like hurricanes.
Bathed in flames we held the brand,
Uncurled the fingers in your hand.
Pressed into the flesh like sand,
Now do you understand?

[Pre-Chorus]
So tell me now,
If this ain't love then how do we get out?
'Cause I don't know.

[Chorus]
That's when she said "I don't hate you boy,
I just want to save you while there's still something left to save."
That's when I told her "I love you girl,
But I'm not the answer for the questions that you still have."

[Hook]
1000 miles away, there's nothing left to say,
But so much left that I don't know.
We never had a choice, this world is too much noise,
It takes me under, it takes me under once again.

[Bridge]
I don't hate you!
I don't hate you!
So tell me now,
If this ain't love then how do we get out?
'Cause I don't know.

[Chorus]
That's when she said "I don't hate you boy,
I just want to save you while there's still something left to save."
That's when I told her "I love you girl,
But I'm not the answer for the questions that you still have."

[Outro]
I don't hate you!
I don't hate you, no!
I don't hate you!
I don't hate you, no!
