Paul, Billy - Thanks For Saving My Life Lyrics



Thanks for saving my life
For picking me up, dusting me off
Making me feel like I'm living again
(Like I'm living again)

I'm so glad I ran into you
If I hadn't seen you
I would have been through

I was low as low could go
Could not stand anymore
Oh, I could never, never
Never, never repay you

I'm so grateful for all the things
You've done for me
Especially listening to my problems
Then saving me from misery

I just wanna say, thank you, baby, for saving my life
For picking me up, dusting me off
Making me feel like I'm living again
(Like I'm living again)

I'm so glad you came along
You stopped me from singing
That sad, sad song

You're the one who erased the pain
My life would never be the same
You're the very one, that only one
That I've been waiting for

I wanna thank you
For listening to all of my problems
And being my shelter
In and out of the storm

I just wanna say, thank you, baby, for saving my life
For picking me up, dusting me off
Putting me all back together, together, together
(Together, together, together)

I can live
(I can live)
Since I found you, baby
(I can live, I can live)
Now I can live
(I can live)
Since I got you back, baby

I just wanna say
Thank you, baby, for saving my life
(For saving this man)
For picking me up, dusting me off
(Don't you understand, what you're doing to me)

Thank you for saving my life

(We both hooked up, we played together)
For picking me up, dusting me off
(I can't live, I can't live without you, babe)
Didn't you, didn't you, didn't you, didn't you save me

Thank you for saving my life
For picking me up

  3. B.A. F.

    Thank you God for saving my life , ( 16 hours of Brain Surgery directing the Neurosergeon's with your stabilize Holy Hands, putting my Brain back together again. )
    I can never repay you for all the things you have done for me. I want to thank you for listening to all my problems and being my shelter in and out of the storms.
    I realize this song isn't referring to you, but this song reminds me of your mercy you did for me." I am so graceful for all the things you've done for me.".

    Thanks for savin' my life
    For pickin' me up
    Dusting me off
    Making me feel like I'm living again (Like I'm living again)
    I'm so glad I ran into you
    If I hadn't seen you I would have been through
    Our love is lucky though
    Could not stand anymore
    Oh, I could never, never, never, never repay you
    I'm so grateful for all of the things you've done for me
    Especially listened to my problems, then savin' me from misery
    I just wanna say thank you, baby, for savin' my life
    For pickin' me up
    Dusting me off
    Making me feel like I'm living again
    I'm so glad you came along
    You stopped me from singing that sad, sad song
    You're the one who erased the pain
    My life would never be the same
    You're the very one, the only one that I've been waitin' for
    I want to thank you for listenin' to all of my problems
    And being my shelter in and out of the storm
    I just wanna say thank you, baby, for savin' my life
    For pickin' me up
    Dusting me off
    Putting me all back together, together, together
    I can live since I found you, baby
    Now I can live since I got you back, baby
    I just wanna say thank you, baby, for savin' this man

  70. ChihuahuaboyDH

    I love this 1974 Billy Paul hit, which peaked @ #37 on Billboard's Hot 100 singles chart! Should've charted MUCH higher!

    Bravo, Billy Paul!

    Rich Brake

    I agree. It was on the radio a lot in the Spring of 74...I'm surprised it only got to #37. I think it may have been a little over shadowed by "I'm Doing Fine Now."
