I gave all my oxygen to people that could breathe
I gave away my money and now we don't even speak 
I drove miles and miles, but would you do the same for me?
Oh, honestly?
 Offered off my shoulder just for you to cry upon
Gave you constant shelter and a bed to keep you warm
They gave me the heartache and in return I gave a song
It goes on and on

Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels 
I drown it with a drink and out-of-date prescription pills
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf 
No farewell 
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself 

I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain
'Cause human beings are destined to radiate or dream 
What line do we stand upon 'cause from here looks the same?
And only scars remain

Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels 
I drown it with a drink and out-of-date prescription pills
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf 
No farewell 
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself 

But if don't
Then I'll go back
To where I'm rescuing a stranger 
Just because they needed saving just like that
Oh, I'm here again  Between the devil and the danger 
But I guess it's just my nature 
My dad was wrong 
'Cause I'm not like my mum
'Cause she'd just smile and I'm complaining in a song
But it helps 
So before I save someone else
I've got to save myself 

Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels 
I drown it with a drink and out-of-date prescription pills
And all the ones that love me they just left me on the shelf 
No farewell 
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself 
And before I blame someone else, I've got to save myself 
And before I love someone else, I've got to love myself
