If I could save you, boy
I'd do it a thousand times over
And finally some day it seems
that I meant you well
But I'm not answering the door
We've been this way even more
Time won't be cruel if you let it go this way

And holding on, holding on, and holding on something inside
Cost of it don't slip away
You've been my whole life
But I'm not the answering the door
She's leaving inside even more
Time won't be cruel if you let it go
It's where I'm letting it today

And don't dare me down
Falling like leaves when they're trading
Some piece of sky for the ground
You catch your soul lifting away
so long but
If I could save you, boy
I'd do it a thousand, a thousand times
And maybe in time you will see
I've made up my mind
But I'm not answering the door
She's leaving inside even more
I'm not answering the door
Cuz she's leaving inside even more

And if I could save you
I'd do it a thousand times

    General CommentI think the lyrics say "Time won't be cruel if you let it go its way /
    I'm letting it today"... maybe it's just me...

    BTW, this is yet another great song of Rachael's... amazing!!!

    General CommentIf I could save you boy I'd do it a thousand times over
    And finally someday it seems that I meant you well

    But I'm not answering the door
    We've been this way even more

    Time won't be cruel if you let it go this way

    And holding on
    Holding on
    Holding on
    There’s something inside

    Close to me
    Don't slip away
    You've been my whole life

    But I'm not answering the door
    She's leaving inside even more

    Time won't be cruel if you let it go
    It's way
    I'm letting it today

    And don't
    Damn me
    Down
    Falling like leaves when they're trading some piece of sky for the ground
    It catches so well after waiting
    So long
    But

    If I could save you boy I'd do it a thousand
    Thousand times and maybe in time you would see I've made up my mind

    But I'm not answering the door
    She's leaving inside even more
    I'm not answering the door 'cause she's leaving inside even more

    And if I could save you I'd do it a thousand times
