Take Me Away by Phillip Phillips
Album: The World from the Side of the Moon (Target Deluxe) <-- so worth the money
Track #16

I don't think this is 100% correct but I just looked at Phil's hands during his live 
performances and this is what I got out of it. Hope you enjoy it and check out my cover of 
it too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PolGbfqQATA

Lyrics:

INTRO

VERSE:
Holding on to what isn't there, trying to find my place.
Can't anyone see what's really me, behind this smile, behind this face?
Broken and struggling in the dark, just to stay above.
But the only thing saving me is your love. Loving you is saving me.

CHORUS:
Won't you take me from the clouds buried in grey.
All the colors are mixing in my head. I can't see which way.
I only see you out of thousands coming my way.
You're all I want to see, all I want to touch and feel in every way.

VERSE:
Turning in the breeze, never breathing. It's always hard to understand.
Seems everyone around is free. It seems like everything just tick tocks away.
Falling with no wings to fly like an angel that's lost her way.
Now the only thing saving me is your love. Loving you is saving me.

CHORUS:
Won't you take me from the clouds buried in grey.
All the colors are mixing in my head. I can't see which way.
I only see you out of thousands coming my way.
You're all I want to see, all I want to touch and feel in every way.
Loving you, loving you is saving me.
Loving you, loving you is saving me.

SOLO

BRIDGE:
But you take me away in the dark and hide me away.
Saying I'll hold your head until you die love and buried beneath your grave.
Hate from inside bursts into flames. Saying forgive me why I run.
I run. Sweet love take me away.

CHORUS:
Loving you, loving you is saving me.
Loving you, loving you is saving me.
