My past has followed me in
I just can't get away
I'm not the same as I was
Leaving my disarray

Save me just as I am
I'm broken down
Pull me into your arms
I'm hanging on to every word

(Chorus)
Save me from losing myself
I'm hanging on by a thread
Can you see who I am
Underneath my scars
I'm afraid to fall
So I'm holding onto you
No, I wont let go
I'm hanging on by a thread

I still can hardly believe
The person I once was
I'm trying so hard to change
Help my work through my flaws

Save me just as I am
I'm calling out
Pull me into your arms
And I'm holding onto every breath

Save me from losing myself
I'm hanging on by a thread
Can you see who I am
Underneath my scars
I'm afraid to fall
So I'm holding onto you
No, I wont let go
I'm hanging on by a thread

I'll never need
I'll never want
With you
With me
I'm so complete
I'll never run
I'll never hide
With you right here
I'm safe inside

Save me from losing myself

I'm afraid to fall
So I'm holding onto you
No, I wont let go

Save me from losing myself
I'm hanging on by a thread
Can you see who I am
Underneath my scars
I'm afraid to fall
So I'm holding onto you
No, I wont let go
I'm hanging on by a thread
