lyrics

I CAN’T SAVE YOU NOW

Kathleen Cattrall and Bonnie Bishop

It’s something we don’t talk about much
The fear of not knowing when we’ll all be turned to dust
I was there the day that those planes fell out of the sky
You were miles away hanging on the line

You were the one who’d been to war
I’d never lived through anything like that before
Seeing all those people running burning in the streets
Now I know what fear really means

You said, Babe I can’t save you now
I can only tell you how
Keep your boots on the ground
Just keep moving south
You’re gonna make it out somehow
But I can’t save you now

You’ll never know how much that you can take
Till one day the world decided to test my strength
All along I had all the courage that I need
Your words cut through the chaos around me

You said, Babe I can’t save you now
Oh I can only tell you how
Keep your boots on the ground
Just keep moving south
You’re gonna make it out somehow
Oh but I can’t save you now

But in the end we all die alone
But the reason I’m alive is your voice on the phone

You said babe I can’t save you now
Oh I can only tell you how
Just keep your boots on the ground
Just keep moving south
You’re going to make it out somehow
But I can’t save you now

Nooooo gotta save yourself tonight

It is something we don’t talk about much
