Temporary Saint
by Gov't Mule



You ask me when I'm gonna return
I ask you "why so much concern?"
The same snakes that drive you from my bed
Turn to voices and drive me out of my head
For fourteen days since you been back around
Trying to keep my spirits high and my demons down
But, can't you see
You got to save me or set me free

'cause I'm falling in deeper, darkness, my old friend
I'm in deeper, stay with me till the end
Deeper, you know I got no restraint
I'm in deeper
And lucky you
You get to be my saint
Temporary saint

Cleaning up one more time is sure getting old
Why don't you bury me like the dirt that's in my soul
What makes you think you could love me, anyway?
Ain't nobody told you about the way I operate
Ain't nobody told you, baby?
Well, I guess that makes you the only one

'cause I'm falling in deeper, darkness, my old friend
I'm in deeper, stay with me till the end
Deeper, you know I got no restraint
I'm in deeper
And lucky you, yeah, lucky you
You get to be my saint
Temporary saint

Angel of mercy, set me free
Do you really give a damn for me?

'cause I'm falling in deeper, darkness, my old friend
I'm in deeper, stay with me till the end
Deeper, you know I got no restraint
I'm in deeper
