Matthew Perryman Jones – Save You lyrics

I wanna rock-n-roll
I wanna give my soul
I'm wanting to believe I'm not too old
Don't wanna make it up
Don't wanna letcha down
I wanna fly away
I'm stuck on the ground

So, help me decide
Help me to make up
Make up my mind
Wouldn't that save you?
Wouldn't that save you?
Wouldn't that save you?

Watched all go by
Was it really true?
Is that what it was?
Was that really you?
I'm looking back again
Tracing back the threads
You said it was a mess
Or was it just in my head?

Chorus (x2)

Somethings gotta break
You gotta swing the bat
Too many years of dying
Why is that?

Chorus (x3)

Wouldn't that save you?
Wouldn't that save you?
Wouldn't that save you?

Wouldn't that save you?
Save you?
Wouldn't that save you?

    He has a dream, a big one. But he's so afraid it won't come true. But if he gives up on his dream, is that any worse or better than it not coming true. People believe in him, they believe in this dream, but he's scared and it's making it hard for him to believe in himself, in his own dream. He feels so alone, when he's not. In the end he realizes, it's not worth it, if he doesn't feel this way, that's the point. If it wasn't meant to be, it wouldn't be so hard.
