So young and jaded, you thought you’d run away from it all
Like a sitting target, I was in the way to make you stall
You thought I’d be some magic man
But I’m not the reason that you ran

Even lifesavers got holes in the middle
I’m no angel, I am who I am
Don’t have all the answers, life is a riddle
I’m no savior, and I can’t be your man

Smell of schoolgirl’s on me, penetrating through my skin
No snapping fingers can change the circumstance we’re in
You’re not the one accountable
I’m the cheater, you’re just too vulnerable

Even lifesavers got holes in the middle
I’m no angel, I am who I am
Don’t have all the answers, life is a riddle
I’m no savior, and I can’t be your man

You’re more than just too young for me
Burning down my family tree
The damage is still visible
But it won’t be hard for them to ask and me to tell

Even lifesavers got holes in the middle
I’m no angel, I am who I am
Don’t have all the answers, life is a riddle
I’m no savior, and I can’t be your man
