Lyrics

All alone, lost in this abyss Crawling in the dark Nothing to wet my longing lips And I wonder where you are Are you far, will you come to my rescue Am I left to die but I can't give up on you

I feel you keeping me alive You are my salvation Touch you, taste you, feel you here I feel you keeping me alive You are my salvation Hold me, heal me, keep me near My heart will burn for you It's all I can do

Salvation Salvation (keeping me alive) Salvation (you're keeping me) Salvation (you're keeping me alive)

Been out from under who I am And who I want to be Held you tightly in my hands Why are we unraveling Was it me, will you come to my rescue Or did I push to far when I turned my back on you

I feel you keeping me alive You are my salvation Touch you, taste you, feel you here I feel you keeping me alive You are my salvation Hold me, heal me, keep me near My heart will burn for you It's all I can do

Salvation Salvation (keeping me alive) Salvation

Touch you, taste you, feel you, need you Give it all just to find you Hold me, heal me I will find you

Keeping me alive You are my salvation Touch you, taste you, feel you here Our love will never die You are my salvation Hold me, heal me, keep me near My heart will burn for you It's all I can do

Salvation Salvation Touch you, taste you, need you Salvation

Meaning

Salvation is about when we give our lives over to Christ and give him all that we are.
