Somebody Saved Me

This song is by Graham Parker and appears on the album Don't Tell Columbus (2007).

I heard the wild dogs scream in the midnight
Just like a knife in my heart
I felt so empty like someone fixed me
Only to take me apart
The mighty ocean dried up before me
The trees went bare before my eyes
The wicked daylight the curse of hindsight
The final blow in disguise

Then somebody saved me
Somebody saved me
Brought me right back to this earth
The love that you gave me renewed and remade me
I can't calculate what it's worth

It used to hurt me to sit in the twilight
Without a friend in which to confide
It used to hurt me my strength would desert me
I'd take a long downward slide
The mask of silence once hung upon me
The blood red wounds in my heart
I could not climb out into the sunshine
I'd just remain in the dark

Then somebody saved me
Somebody saved me
Brought me right back to this earth
The love that you gave me renewed and remade me
I can't calculate what it's worth

I did not need mercy I did not need pity
I did not need faith or belief
I did not need god or some other illusion
I was not dead and I was not weak
I just need someone someone to save me
And bring me right back down to this earth
The love that you gave me renewed and remade me
I can't calculate what it's worth

Then somebody saved me
Somebody saved me
Brought me right back to this earth
The love that you gave me renewed and remade me
I can't calculate what it's worth
