save my life lyrics – sidewalk prophets

save my life

we’ve met half a dozen times
i know your name i know you don’t know mine
but i won’t hold that against you

you come here every friday night
i take your order and try to be polite
and hide what i’ve been going through

if you looked me right in the eye
would see the pain deep inside
would you take the time to

[chorus:]
tell me what i need to hear
tell me that i’m not forgotten
show me there’s a god
who can be more than all i’ve ever wanted
‘cause right now i need a little hope
i need to know that i’m not alone
maybe god is calling you tonight
to tell me something
that might save my life

i’m the pastor at your church
for all these years you’ve listened to my words
you think i know all the answers

but i’ve got doubts and questions too
behind this smile i’m really just like you
afraid and tired and insecure

if you look me right in the eye
would you see the real me inside
would you take the time to

[chorus]

save my life

i am just like everyone
jesus i need you, i need your love
to save my life

[chorus]
