Robert Hill: Music

Sweet Salvation

(Robert Hill)
We never needed a reason
Always remembered to forget
She was the queen of denial
I was the king of regrets
Baby, I don't need none of your money
I need you

In a three-way race
With me, that girl, and time
Always had to be at a certain place
By a certain time
Well I don't work that way my darling
Sorry if I wasted your time It ain't broken, but it still needs fixing
If we're gonna survive

CHORUS
My sweet salvation, where have you gone
Your train ain't stopped at my station for so long

Now I know, what her hurry was all about
Burnin' at both ends and up the middle
Her time was running out
I kept her out too late, man wewere feeling fine
Lived more in her brief stay, than I could do in a lifetime

CHORUS
My sweet salvation, where have you gone
Your train ain't stopped at my station for so long
My sweet salvation, cannot forget
Last chance for love, no time for regrets

Many nights we laid awake
Sweat right through the bed
Let things get the best of us
Too much time in the medicine chest
Hellhound denial, never gave us a rest
Never knew what I had
Till it was out of my grasp

Now those days are gone
pushed back on the shelf
Left up to my own devices
I barely survived myself
I know where to find her
I see her when I can
I take her my mother's flowers
With some water in an old tin can

CHORUS
