Words:Deborah D. Smith
Music: Michael W. Smith

Made a friend last night, or you thought you did
Had a drink, had a talk, took a drive
Shared the night, gave up a part of your soul
Now she's gone and you're a little less alive.
Shake it off, never let your feelings begin
But your defenses are down and the fear is closing in.

Yes, you really need a saviour
Somehow you've known it all along
Yes, you really need a saviour
You know you've heard it for so long
Yes, You really need a saviour
Someone to come and lead you on
You need a saviour
You need a saviour
It's time

Told yourself today just for your own sake
What was lost wouldn't cost anyway
Life's a one night stand, this time you'll win
The up and down, life-long game that you play.

Shake it off, never let your feelings begin
But your defenses are down and the fear is closing in.
