"My Saving Grace" as written by Ben Jorgensen, Peter James Decicco, Anthony Diionno and Nash Breen....
Am I a toy to you
With strings around my fingers
For you to pull and watch as I collapse when you want?
The coldest night to me is a switch that you control
Tip-toe around your words just to calm you down again

There's too many people that we both love
And too many secrets I don't wanna know

You're still chasing him
My saving grace is saving face
Lost on the back burner
Good for, good for you
My saving grace is saving face
I just sit and wait

There's always just enough of you to pull me back
But I can see your eyes drifting past what you have
I'm flagging down a ship when it's on its way to sea
The horn is blaring out
But I just don't want to hear

I never left you in a sandstorm
I never left for a second at all

You're still chasing him
My saving grace is saving face
Lost on the back burner
Good for, good for you
My saving grace is saving face
I just sit and wait

I thought you were and angel
I guess you were a vulture.
Either way, spread your wings and just fly away (x2)

You're still chasing him
My saving grace is saving face
Lost on the back burner
Good for, good for you
My saving grace is saving face
I just sit and wait

I just sit and wait
(Spread your wings and fly away) (x4)

    General CommentI'm gonna take a stab in the dark here...
    but it's pretty much like the other songs on this album...
    the guy likes the girl who likes someone else and he can't accept it ?
    idk

    General CommentI think the guy really liked this girl but she didn't fully send back mutual feelings but at the same time kept him thinking there was hope to be with her so she was "toying" with him and in reality she really wanted someone else completely hence "you're still chasing him" and the "I can see your eyes drifting past what you have" so in the end he thought she was great but when he figured out what she was really about he hates her and calls her a vulture instead of the angel she was made out to be

    General CommentThis is about a guy who is interested in a girl but knows that she is still wanted to be with another guy. for him he didnt want to submit to her and be apart of the game she was playing. she cant see that hes the right one for her, except she keeps him as a backup for times when she's given up and has no one and is extremely lonely

    General CommentFor me It's about my best friend... I feel abandoned my her recently because she's chasing after this guy that's just messing with her, so I felt really used,
    she started ditching me for him...
