Save What You Can

Well it doesn't look much like we'll see the new year
Cos all the bright young faces are here
And i can't see us rising to their occasion any more
No, not their christmas cheer

Time is against us, even love conspires to disgrace us
And with things being what they are ...
Yes and things being what they are

Oh my friend, we used to walk in the flames
Now somebody's taken my arms
The shadows are taller. you're missing your halo
With your face in the half-light you iook like a stranger

You made me catch my breath just then
You made me catch my breath
Is that you:... is that still you?

If you cannot run, then crawl
If you can leave, then leave it all
If you don't get caught, then steal it all
If you don't get caught. then steal it all
Steal it all

The final time we touch
I watch as you enter the church
You turn and you wave, then you kneel and you pray
And you save of yourself what you can save

If you cannot run, then crawl
If you can leave, then leave it all
If you don't get caught. then steal it all
If you don't get caught. then steal it all
Steal it all

And between ourselves, and the end at hand,
Save what you can
