I can’t breathe
Come save me
I need someone to be
The answer from above

I’ll climb on your wings
Listen to him sing
All our problems will stream down the window
Through the heavy downpour
I’m drowning in my mistakes
It hurts more than before

Save me from the flood
Of out drowning sorrows
Promise you’ll be here tomorrow
If not tonight
You’ve gotta come through for me
The way I never did
Promise me this isn’t the end

Again, forgive these sins
These last days without you
Have been a never ending sauna
You’ll come to my rescue
I’ll call you Shaken Savior
You’ve gotta come through for me
The way I never did

I started killing us
Before it all began
But one last promise
I want you to hear
Id that I’m not leaving
Until you understand
I won’t put you through this
Ever again
Just send me a Shaken Savior
Come help me

Save me from the flood
Of out drowning sorrows
Promise you’ll be here tomorrow
If not tonight
You’ve gotta come through for me
The way I never did
Promise me this isn’t the end

We both know I need one
Lets give this another shot
Forgive all we’ve done
Forget all we regret
I just need a second chance
I’m just so sorry

I started killing us
Before it all began
But one last promise
I want you to hear
Id that I’m not leaving
Until you understand
I won’t put you through this
Ever again

No, never again
I couldn’t do it
I promise I’ve changed
You have to make a promise too

Save me from the flood
Of out drowning sorrows
Promise you’ll be here tomorrow
If not tonight
You’ve gotta come through for me
The way I never did
Promise me this isn’t the end

Promise me it’s not the end
Shaken Savior
Promise me there’s no end
Shaken Savior
Come here and forgive
Every single sin
I regret them all
I’ve had my fair share of falls
You’re human too so

Save me from the flood
Of out drowning sorrows
Promise you’ll be here tomorrow
If not tonight
You’ve gotta come through for me
The way I never did
Promise me this isn’t the end

Wow, thanks! You guys really have no idea how much this means to me.
I left that band because my drums broke, so I couldn't practice or perform. The singer, one of my friends, would probably take it, and sing it on Youtube. If he does, I'll post it :]
But really, thank you!!
