Somebody Saved Me

I stood at the door beside her But she wouldn't let me pass I was such a bore, and I lied to her I said I didn't really want her ass I went away in the mud and rain The gang became snide and laughed I was slain, but I smiled and the pain Began to subside at last And when I got back to my hotel I wondered if the thunder meant I'd landed in Hell And on the forecourt I slipped and fell I cracked my stupid head and I heard a bell I thought, hey Somebody saved me - it happened again Somebody saved me - I thank you, my friend Somebody saved me from a fate worse than Heaven 'Cause if I'd had her for just an hour I'd have wanted her forever Somebody saved me You would have thought that I'd have learned Twenty years ago or more A beautiful girl raised her mouth and yearned But I didn't know what lips were for I ran away in the mud and rain The weather here is never too bright She'd had an affray with her man and came For solace and the means to fight She finally bored with seducing me And took up with some geezer from the Ealing scene It nearly killed him like it would've killed me When her original man snapped his fingers and she obeyed, she obeyed But somebody saved me - it happened again Somebody saved me - I thank you, my friend Somebody saved me from a fate worse than Heaven 'Cause if I'd had her for just an hour I'd have wanted her forever I don't know about guardian angels All I know about's staying alive I can't shout about spiritual labels When little ones die and big ones thrive All I know is that I've been making it And there've been times that I didn't deserve to Every show there's been more faking it But right at the point of no return Somebody saves me again and again Somebody saves me - I thank you, my friend Somebody saves me from a fate worse than Heaven 'Cause if I blew it for a single moment I'd blow it forever But somebody saves me I took up the connection once Made me feel quite aloof I never could queue to collect my lunch While I was pursuing the truth So I left my folks in the mud and rain It always rains in Sunnyside Road I lived hippy jokes, getting stoned insane Till the rain looked just like snow But there was a soul in whom I could depend He worked himself crazy while I laid in bed I never leaned on a person like I leaned right then And when I finally woke up clean My friend was dead, stone dead Somebody saved me - it happened again Somebody saved me - I thank you, my friend Somebody saved me - I ain't ready for Heaven 'Cause if I'd seen you for a second, I'd have wanted to see you forever Somebody saved me Somebody saved me
