[Verse 1]
I gave all my oxygen to people that could breath,
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 up 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.

[Chorus]
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I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills,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.

[Verse 2]
I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain,
'Cause human beings are destined to radiate, or drain.
What line do we stand upon 'cause from here it looks the same?
And only scars remain.

[Chorus]
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I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills,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.

[Bridge]
But if I 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.

[Chorus]
Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels,
Or drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills,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.
