"I wanna say that I lived, I don't wanna give my soul to the goddamn devil" -"Save Me" by Automatic Loveletter


It’s the beginning of the end for us,
I can see that now.
Do you remember a time so long ago,
When we weren’t just strangers in a crowd?

Back when we could say we tried our hardest
And fought for what is right.
Back when we all wanted to be the smartest,
And death was a horrible sight.

This is our generation,
It’s letting me down.
It’s the people around me,
It’s the voices, the sound.

It’s the way that we lie,
We never have an answer.
It’s the ones that we love,
They all become traders.

Don’t give yourself up,
We can’t give up now,
When we’ve made it this far.

We’re living constantly
With a finger on the trigger
Begging for a reason
And trying to feel bigger.

Who knows what we’ll be
When we cut just too deep
I can’t stand to see
What’s gonna be left of me.

This is our generation,
It’s letting me down.
It’s the people around me,
It’s the voices, the sound.

It’s the way that we lie,
We never have an answer.
It’s the ones that we love,
They all become traders.

Don’t give yourself up,
We can’t give up now,
When we’ve made it this far.

The war that you thought you’ve won,
Is now in the hands of sympathy.
When there’s fighting between friends
And everybody feels like an enemy.

Somehow we can change this
If we stand together and fight.
At the snap of these fingers,
We can change it tonight.

Don’t give yourself up,
We can’t give up now.

Don’t give yourself up,
Show me you’re proud.

Don’t give yourself up,
Here’s to the hope that you found.

Don’t give yourself up,
Right now.
