Save Me

Drowning…
Drowning…can you save me? (save me…angel of light…)
I’ve been drowning…what about you? (when will you take flight?)
In my mind’s eye, 
I see you…and I stare in wonder
I’m waiting for your reply
To my screams…is it all in my head?

I hear your fascinating voice
But, it’s all in my head
I hear you calling for help
But, I hear my own dread…

Weighed down…
The world weighs me down…(save me…angel of light…)
I feel your touch and I feel so alive again…(when will you take flight?)
Because I see you…brought low by depression 
The thought of you
Makes me bleed out regret
I’m waiting for your reply
To my cries…of sadness and dread

I hear your fascinating voice
But, it’s all in my head
I hear you calling for help
But, I hear my own dread…

I’m terribly sorry
For causing you unbearable pain
I’m sorry…for everything I’ve done…
Nothing can save me from my fate…
My fate…to fly away from the spiraling world
I cherish the thought of you
Taking wing all over again…

I hear your fascinating voice
But, it’s all in my head
I hear you calling for help
But, I hear my own dread… 

I hear your soothing voice ring in my head…
But, nothing can stop me from my fate
My fate…to fly away from this wretched world…
This world of woe…makes me ache and hesitate…

I hear your fascinating voice
But, it’s all in my head
I hear you calling for help
But, I hear my own dread… 

I don’t understand the pain you feel
I’m so sorry…so sorry…
I don’t know what it’s like in your shoes
I’m full of misery,
But I still hear your voice,
Ringing in my head…
Saturating me with dread

I hear your fascinating voice
But, it’s all in my head
I hear you calling for help
But, I hear my own dread… 

I hear my own dread…I’m falling
Into a black hole…into deep misery
I hear your dread…I’m fading
And I can’t let go of past sorrow…
Your voice…draws me a picture of the dawn…
Your voice…draws me a picture of the sun…

I hear your fascinating voice
But, it’s all in my head
I hear you calling for help
But, I hear my own dread… 
It’s my time to live…and it’s your time to move on…
It’s my time to face my fate…and it’s your time to sing me to sleep
Stay with me until the dawn…
Stay here, dear
Have no fear…darling angel

I hear your fascinating voice
But, it’s all in my head
I hear you calling for help
But, I hear my dread instead…
Save me please…

    I think it is hard to take care of others and ourselves at times. To do both might be too much. Your turn will come to save and care when the time is right. We are all at different places on this strange planet we share.
