Song of the Day, April 6: I’m the One to Save by Ellis Paul

Today’s song is I’m the One to Save by Ellis Paul. Another track from his masterpiece, Translucent Soul, it’s a fragile song of a disintegrating relationship.

I can’t believe you didn’t save me
When the angels came to watch me drown
And though the pirates behaved quite bravely
They took the treasure when I went down

Hey hey — I’m drowning
Hey hey — wave by wave
Hey hey — heart pounding
Hey hey — I’m the one to save
I am the one to save

Enjoy this powerful song of loss today.
