A song about watching someone fall apart in front of you, wishing you could save them.


If I’m gonna go, will you go with me?
If I’m gonna leave, don’t leave me alone.
If I’m gonna fall, be the ground when we land.
If I’m gonna jump, don’t let go of my hand.

You could save me. You could save me.

The lifeboat is gone, you waved it on.
I’d throw you a line, but your ocean is dry.
Face pressed on the glass, trying to see the end.
Eyelids won’t close, they can barely pretend.

You could save me. You could save me.
You could save me from drowning, sinking, sinking.

I feel you floating away,
slipping away from me, slipping away.
from me, into the sky, slipping away from me into the sky,
Floating away. goodbye. slipping away.

Piano solo

You could save me, you could save me.
I could save you, I could save you
from floating, flying away.

The lifeboat is gone, we waved it on.
They threw us a line, but we laughed and said “some other time”
If you’re flying away, I will hold you down.
If you don’t let go, then I won’t drown.
