about

Recorded in a similar manner to Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska album (i.e. entry level tascam portastudio in a spare bedroom); Save Me delves into the need for redemption and the hope which it brings.

All proceeds from this EP (i.e. everything except for the transaction fee) go to Christians Against Poverty. capuk.org

Track Name: Save Me
Save me; said the running man, running away as fast has be can,
I can run for all my days, soon I will be done!

Save me; said the beggar man, raising up his hands for alms,
Can't get out of the state I'm in, can't walk out, can't break free.

I'm not so far gone, but I can't hold on for long,
So won't you save me? Save me!

Save me; said the drowning man, treading water waving his arms,
Can't tread water for all my days, soon I will be gone.

And I'm so far gone, I just can't hold on for long,
So won't you save me? Save me!

Save me; said the dying man, holding on as long as he can,
It's getting awful dark in hear, I can't hold on but I can't let go.

I'm not afraid of being alone, I'm just scared of where I'm going,
So won't you save me? Save,

And I'm so far gone, I just can't hold on for long,
So won't you save me? Save me!

Am I so far gone? Am I so far gone? Am I so far gone?
Am I so far gone? Am I so far gone? Am I so far gone?
Track Name: On My Knees
Like shadows on the side walk, like foot prints in the rain;
Only here for a while, yeah nothing stays the same.

Ever making reasons, for the state that I am in;
Just trying to make ends meet, just trying to make ends meet,
But there's nothing ever here for me.

I've fallen to a place where I can be no more,
On bended knee, I make this vow,
I'll greet you, on my knees.

Hold me know I'm lonely, hold me now I'm scared;
I know I don't deserve it but you remain.

You always see right through me, to the state that I am in;
Just trying to make ends meet, just trying to make ends meet,
But there's nothing ever here for me.

I've fallen to a place where I can be no more,
On bended knee, I make this vow,
I'll greet you, on my knees.

On my knees, fallen on my knees.
There's no where left to run to, no place left to hide;
My bridges are all burning, I'm on my knees.

I've fallen to a place where I can be no more,
On bended knee, I make this vow,
I'll greet you, on my knees.

I've fallen to a place where I can be no more,
On bended knee, I make this vow,
I'll greet you, on my knees.

On my knees, on my knees.
Track Name: Heaven Is Near
People say this old place ain't, what it used to be;
I don't mind this old feeling, it doesn't bother me.

Talk is cheap and time is money, it doesn't pay to hang on;
In the end there's no stopping, there's no keeping us here.

When its over, when its over,
Heaven is near.

People say that time's a healer, but that was yesterday;
Tomorrow seems to far gone such a, long way from today.

When its over, when its over,
Heaven is near.

In the end it all comes down to, nothing is for sure;
Time goes on and we all change only, one thing remains.

When its over, when its over,
Heaven is near.
Heaven is near.
Heaven is near.

When its over, when its over,
Heaven is near.
Heaven is near.
Track Name: More Than Anything
Take my hand, I'm feeling cold and I don't want to be alone,
This time I've got no feeling and its shimmering to the bone.
The day will break, and I don't know how
To get over this one more time.

I need you, more than anything, more than anything.

Take my life, was never really mine, not that I'd have known,
Been away far to long, in the cold winter rain.
And night will come, with only one more chance,
To make it back to you.

I need you, more than anything.
I need you, more than anything, more than anything.

More than the air I breathe, more than the world I see,
More than the light of day, more than the words I say.
More than the air I breathe, more than the world I see,
More than the light of day, more than the words I say.

More, more, more, more than anything.
More, more, more, more than anything.
More, more, more, more than anything.
Track Name: You're Here
Thought I could run from you, thought I could hide my face from you,
But you're no fool, you see everything, put me back in my place again.

I'm so tired of these skin and bones, I fall if I reach too far.
But you know my heart, you know my ways and you bring me back to that starting place.

And I can't run, I can't hide I know now

You're here, heaven knows you're here,
Though I can't see, you're here,
Here.

I lack the means to find a way, I can't see my eyes grow tired,
But you here my voice, you here my cry and you bring me in close by your side.

And I can't run, I can't hide I know now

You're here, heaven knows you're here,
Though I can't see, you're here,
Here.

I know there's a presence, I can feel a presence here,
I know there's a presence.
I know there's a presence, I can feel your presence here,
I know there's a presence.

You're here, heaven knows you're here,
Though I can't see, you're here,
Here.
Track Name: I Want You To Know
When I paint the picture I'm meant to be,
I can't get the colours they all look the same.
I run in circles trying to be me, it gets only so far.

But I get this feeling, the strangest feeling.

I want you to know, that I feel so much more than alive, now you are here.
I want you to know, that I feel so much more
I feel a difference oh yeah, now that you're here.

I need a hand to guide me through,
I need a shoulder to cry onto.
Its not that much to ask these days, but I feel so unworthy.

And I get this feeling, the strangest feeling.

I want you to know, that I feel so much more than alive, now you are here.
I want you to know, that I feel so much more than alive, now you are here.
I feel a difference oh yeah, such a difference oh yeah, now that you're here.

I can't do this any more; I can't do this on my own.
And I want you to know, that I feel so much more than alive, now you are here.
I want you to know, that I feel so much more than alive, now you are here.

And I want you to know, that I feel so much more,
And I want you to know, that I feel so much more,
I want you to know,
I want you to know,
I want you to know.
