Save Me from Myself

by nikki.
(nowhere.)

Roughly the first 2/3 of the first song I've ever written. Sorry if it sounds overly-adolescent. It describes the situation I'm in with a boy to a T, at the moment. Leave feedback, list some improvements, enjoy.

Verse 1

You've been my flashlight
When I’m left, in the dark.
You've picked up the pieces
To my fragile, broken heart
No, I can’t say that I've felt
This way, before.
Well my soul and my mind is mine,
But my heart, it’s yours…

Verse 2

And as we lay here, hiding
Our interlocking hands,
And though I know I’ll always be
Nothing more than your back-up plan,
This love I feel for you,
It’s a different brand
I might settle for less, but I don’t know
If I can, oh.

Bridge

So boy, tell me,
Is this love real?
Are the feelings that I have,
Really the same as how you feel?

Chorus

Your eyes, your smile, your perfection,
They drive me insane,
And I don’t think that I’ll ever
Be the same, no.
Though I know we can’t be together,
And I think you two might be forever,
I don’t want to be with anyone else…
‘Cause you've saved me from myself.

Verse 1

I’ll never be able to look into your eyes,
The same way,
Those green, little beady bastards
Look at me as if to say:
I know you want me,
And sometimes, I want you, too…
But other times I realize,
Some things, we just can’t follow through

Verse 2

For every tear you've caused
To leave my eye, for all of the pain,
You've given me hope, something to
Latch onto, I can’t explain.
It’s driving me insane,
From your love, I can’t abstain;
And I don’t think I’ll ever be able
To look at you the same…

Bridge

So, boy, tell me,
Do you know what it’s like?
To be loved back by someone,
For whom you feel you've waited your whole life?

Chorus

Your eyes, your smile, your perfection,
It all drives me insane,
And I don’t know if I can ever
Be the same, woah.
And I know you’re perfect together,
And you just might be forever,
I don’t want to be with anyone else…
‘Cause you've saved me from myself.
