Couldn’t Save Me

Your words like waves
Wash over me as I tried to be brave
But I couldn’t save me

All the things you called me that I can’t repeat
Thinking about the past I wish I could delete
I couldn’t save me

The salt-water fills my eyes
I watch as my soul dies
I couldn’t save me

The rumors of me are knee deep
I guess that’s why I can’t sleep
The reputation I couldn’t keep

I was drowning, dying
But nobody heard a thing
I couldn’t save me

The shadows close in
Like bullets on skin
I couldn’t save me

My dull blue eyes
Like dark grey skies
Watched as I met my demise
I couldn’t save me
