There's a place where you can light the fire and watch it burn
Lay it down and lose it all
It's taken me so far beyond the point of no return
Gave all that I had
When hope is gone
(Hope is gone)

Is this real?
Or is it just another crazy dream?
Someday soon will fade away
Feels just like I'm under water and can barely breathe
Dying in the bed that I have made

I don't wanna drown in you
I'm sinking, then I'm starting to
So when you see me, come up the river
Don't try to hold me down, just save me now
Don't let me drown in you
(Don't let me drown in you)

City pulls me in closer than I've ever been
There ain't no way I can escape
Without a doubt you know that I would tread the deepest end
Thousand years forever in a day

But I don't wanna drown in you
I'm sinking, then I'm starting to
So when you see me, come up the river
Don't try to hold me down, just save me now
(Just save me now)
Don't let me drown in you

Did I bring this to myself?
Can I get out alive?
Yeah, I've given you the best of me
Now you want the rest of me
What's it gonna take to survive?
Yeah!

(Solo)

There's a place where you can light the fire and watch it burn

I don't wanna drown in you
(Drown in you)
I'm sinking, then I'm starting to
(I'm starting to)
So when you see me, come up the river
Don't try to hold me down, just save me now
(Just save me now)
Don't let me drown in you
Don't let me drown in you
(Drown in you)
(Just save me now)
(Don't let me drown in you)
(Drown in you)

    The author is talking about something quite precious to him which he created, or at least was there when it was born, along time this thing (probably a passion for something)
    the problem with this passion is that it keeps pulling him down to a place where he doesn't like to be, but can't stay apart from. So this passion/place is his serenade, but it represents unpeasant feelings of sadness/isolation. As much love he have as much dispare or unpleasant memories and he just can't leave it all behind.

    And that's just my humble opinion.

    He doesn't want his "savior" to let him think that he is going to be saved and then die from it.

    I think it means to not give in to what people say. Think about something before doing it. Don't go along with everything in life, say your opinion, and go through with it.
