Only You Can Save by Chris Sligh
Tabbed by Jeník Kabelka

Intro
G D A Bmi A
G D A

Verse 1
        Bmi                   G                D
I saw a man today, his whole world across his back 
         A        Bmi              G 
A living monument opposed to my success
             Bmi                     G                D
I tried to look into his eyes as he shuffled past my car
              A                Bmi                  G   
Sweat beading on his skin, his clothes and hair a mess.

       Em7                                     G
As the light turned green and I pulled away he slowly disappeared
       Em7                        G                   A
Just a memory of another chance I failed to show your love here

Chorus 1
G         D                A                Bmi  A         G
I want to love because you loved. I want to give because you gave.
          D                 A                    Bmi       A         G  D A
I want to reach my hand out to the lost 'cause I know your hand will sa-a-ave
Bmi   A       G D A
Only you can sa-a-ave

Verse 2
I have to wonder if I really want to know 
The struggle and the pain that others feel
Do I want to hear the stories I see echoed in their eyes 
Or is this love I say that I'm reflecting even real?

        Em7                                G  
As the light turns on inside my head and I slowly disappear 
  Em7                                             G         A
I steel myself 'cause what You call for me is to show Your love here

Chorus 2
I want to love because you loved. I want to give because you gave.
I want to reach my hand out to the lost 'cause I know your hand will save.
I want to love just like you loved I want to give just like you gave
I want to reach out with your hand 'cause only you can sa-a-ave
Only you can sa-a-ave

Bridge
G   D              A
So, let me be your hands. 
G D            A
Let me be your eyes.
G   D            A
You help me understand 
              G              D                  A
That I'm your hands and feet hidden behind this frail human disguise

Chorus 3
I want to love because you loved. I want to give because you gave.
I want to reach out with your hand 'cause I know Your hand will save
I want to love just like you loved I want to give just like you gave
I want to reach out with your hand 'cause only You can sa-a-ave
Only you can sa-a-ave

Outro
             G D A
Only you can save yeah
Only you can save
Only you can save yeah
Only you can save
             D
Only you can save
