lyrics

VERSE 1
I was, down and out, till you found me
I was, doing wrong, running the streets
I was, staying up all night, getting no sleep
I was, drinking and driving, nothing but a sheep
succumbing to peer pressure, whatever, wherever
made no attempts to stop, no endeavor
I was, consuming nothing, but fast food and soda
I was, doing nothing, just passing out on the sofa
I was, smoking with the guys, puff puff pass
fucking up my lungs, ageing without class
I was, late for interviews, not punctual
you could've called my living, dysfunctional
but it changed, that day you found me
by opening your heart, you saved me from me
you saved me from me, I can throw away the splint
I'd be gone without you or reading from prison print

CHORUS
You got me through the rain, through the pain to abstain
you saved me from chains, being detained, to remain
you, saved, me (you saved me)
you, saved, me (you saved me)
x2

VERSE 2
I was, getting into bust ups, had no chill (none)
temper like a monster, wouldn't stop for a mill
I was, getting bloody, from enemies of mine or my buddies
I was, breaking bones, ruining my studies
I was, knocking frauds out, yeah they had it coming
but I'd be the one ending up locked down in a paddy wagon
had to make smarter decisions, ponder past present visions
but I didn't know where to start, past the plentiful collisions
I was, wishing for change, something needed to occur
judge gave me my last, next time my home would be transferred
I was, on my hands and knees, life had knocked me down
I was, fucking it up, one step at a time
but when I saw you, all that changed
so perfect for me like it had been arranged
life, care, love, a reason, is what you gave me
treat you like I won't see you tomorrow is how I be

CHORUS

VERSE 3
Throughout it all, through my trials and tribulations
through the tests and the exams, you laid the foundations
through the good and the bad and the ugly and the real gully
you stood by my side, brought my life on a path like Sully
you stood by my side, restored my pride
you stood by my side, restored my stride
there is no need for marriage when you have already shown me
just what I mean to you, and I show you what you mean to me
actions speak louder than words, feelings speak louder than verbs
from the, side of the kerb, to a completely different blurb
sing the chorus again and have the message soar like a bird
sing the chorus again and tell 'em all what you've heard, cause...
she saved me, you saved me
she saved me, you saved me
she saved me, you saved me
you saved me, sing it loud!

about

Joe March Australia

I'm passionate about music and have been making it for a minute. I mainly create conscious hip hop where I can vent by putting my opinions down on 'wax'. Many other songs are tracks about the fairer sex.
