Save Me by catch---22 Save Me by catch---22
Driving through the desert I met a man
Who told me of his crazy plan
He'd been walking there for 20 days
He was gonna walk on for 20 more
I said, “How ‘bout a drink or a bite to eat”
He said, “No, my faith is all I need”
So I said then, save me, save me
Mister walking man, if you can

You don't need to prove a thing to me
Just give me faith make me believe
C'mon save me, save me
Mister walking man, if you can
C'mon save me, save me
I said, “Stranger if you please”

Save me, save me
Stranger if you please
Or am I too far gone?
I said, “to get back home”

How ‘bout you take a ride with me
We could kill some time, shoot the breeze
He said, “every whispering wind and second counts”
Oh, maybe if you walk but you should drive around.

Save me, save me
Mister walking man, if you can
C'mon save me, save me
I said, “stranger, if you please”
Save me, save me
Stranger, if you please
Or am I too far gone?
To get back home

I don't need you to stop the sunshine, no
I don't need you to turn water into wine, no
I don't need you to, to fly
I'm just asking you to save me

(You might try savin' yourself)
I'm gonna save me

(You might try savin' yourself)
I swear those lips shine

(You might try savin' yourself)
As it, the, the moon it shines

(You might try savin' yourself)
Why don't you, save me

(You might try savin' yourself)
Come on and save me

(You might try savin' yourself)
Oh, oh, oh, oh

(You might try savin' yourself)
Why don't ya save me

(You might try savin' yourself)
Why don't ya save me
Save me, save me......

~~ This has taken me back to a re-life experience in Sabino Canyon in Tucson and I have written about it inspired by this incredible capture of the desert. ~~

~~ If you mean the cloud forming beneath me, oh yes it was, I have pictures I took from my Canon AE Program 1 on rapid shooting of it happening. It was magic. ~~

one of my favorite places... I go back and forth between it and colorado. I just can't decide and don't think I'll bother with choosing. I'll just go with both.

the landscape looks surreal, I'm guessing due to the HDR effect maybe?
