"Rescue" as written by and Greg Walker....
I've been trying my best to figure it out
I'm done pretending that I'm doing okay
I sold my soul to the idea that we would be better off this way

And we've had all the conversations
Leading up to all our frustrations
I'm lost in my place, but in fact
It's enough to drive you away

I'm coming home
Only 300 miles away
To what I thought I was doing just fine
But you'll be my crutch tonight

Whoa
You're the only one that can be my rescue
Don't let go
I won't give up, let up
You're my only hope

Whoa
I shouldn't have to use the song to tell you:
You're my heartbreak remedy
Cure this pain inside of me
The distance's overwhelming me
I'm lost without you

We both know that the times are heavy
I played it back a thousand times in my head
A perfect scene that I want to keep living
It will pay off in the end

I'm coming home
Only 200 miles away
To what I thought I was doing just fine
But you'll be my crutch tonight

Whoa
You're the only one that can be my rescue
Don't let go
I won't give up, let up
You're my only hope

Whoa
I shouldn't have to use the song to tell you:
You're my heartbreak remedy
Cure this pain inside of me
The distance's overwhelming me
I'm lost without you

I just wanna see us through this
'Cause I'm not ready to let you down
(I'm not ready to let you down)
I just wanna make this happen
'Cause I'm not ready to see you go

Whoa
You're the only one that can be my rescue
Don't let go
I won't give up, let up
You're my only hope

Whoa
You're the only one that can be my rescue
Don't let go
I won't give up, let up
You're my only hope

Whoa
I shouldn't have to use the song to tell you:
You're my heartbreak remedy
Cure this pain inside of me
The distance's overwhelming me
I'm lost without you

Whoa!

    General CommentI'm coming home
    Only 300 miles away
    To what I thought I was doing just fine
    But you'll be my crutch tonight
    I think it's just 'I thought I was doing fine'. I don't hear the 'To what'.
    And I'm not sure, but I think this:
    I just wanna sing us through this
    'Cause I'm not ready to let you down
    (I'm not ready to let you down)
    I just wanna make this happen
    'Cause I'm not ready to see you choke
    Is this:
    I just wanna see us through this
    'Cause I'm not ready to let you down
    (I'm not ready to let you down)
    I just wanna make this happen
    'Cause I'm not ready to see you go
    But I'm not sure. That's just what I hear. And also, I love this song.
