Rescue all you can my love
the flood is coming in our hearts
to drown the past forsaken times
to make room for our joining lives
Rescue what you need my dear
the floods erasing every wheel
you steered you life with before you knew
I was here depending on you

Rescue what you'll miss my darling
I will never keep you yearning
for the part of you you practiced
in you r childhood and adultness
Rescue what you love my all
hang pictures of it on our wall
and use that window to remember
the ones that got you through your winter

Don't save me cause I'll keep floating
on my back my eyes wide open
letting all the currents guide me
while I feel you pulling my feet
Rescue what you are instead
and by this flood don't be mislead
The flood of love, a sea of flames
endanger you to fade away
