I won’t take much of your time
I just want you to see
What I have made inside these lines
It’s as good as I can be
It’s as good as I can be
This is all that I can be
This is all that I can be
All that I can be
Head tilted down, knees on the ground
And I will ask, ‘‘Please, save me!’’

I deserve for you to turn away
I was ashamed to speak your name
I can’t believe that all you see
Is that you have covered me gracefully
You’re all I want to be
You’re all I want to be
You’re all I’ll ever need
You’re all I’ll ever need

Jesus, Jesus, please, save me!

I won’t take much of your time
I just want you to save me

    Song MeaningDefinitely a powerful song. This is probably the one most obviously related to God.
    "Head tilted down, knees on the ground, and I will ask, "Please, save me!" Is someone praying, asking to be saved by God. "I deserve for you to turn away, I was ashamed to speak your name" is, I believe, praying for forgiveness in being apart from God and realizing their fault and feeling horrible about it. "I can't believe that all you see Is that you have covered me gracefully" is disbelief that God clans Jesus can be so forgiving and caring, even for people who feel that they don't deserve it. The lyrics are pretty straightforward, but the way Tyler delivers them is absolutely heart wrenching. (Adding my comment here too because I didn't realize Tyler had his own)

    General CommentThis song will always be one of my most favorites. From anyone. The first time I listened to it, I was so deeply affected that I decided to give over the title "most favorite band of all time" Congrats. I cried like a baby, not only cause its a great song, but for him to mention the name Jesus, was beautiful. Mater of fact I think its the only song in which he uses the name. Every one throws around the name God, but when you say "Jesus", things get serious, and I'm not talking about when people see something gruesome, or stub a toe. Their is power in the name of Jesus, and this I believe is Tyler's most powerful song. Anywayz... I have been in those shoes. I've begged the same question. I have felt ashamed for turning away, but by the grace of God, he is still around when we come to our senses. Grace was a hard one for me to wrap my head around, but its also something I believe that I'm most thankful for.
