Save me if you please

Everybody pass me by (pass me by)

Standing at the crossroads baby
Rising sun going down
Standing at the crossroads baby
Rising sun going down (going down)
I believe to my soul now
Lord I'm sinking down

Whoa you can run, you can run
You can hide but you'll be found (you'll be found)
You can run, you can run
You can hide but you'll be found
I'm standing at the crossroads
I believe I'm sinking down
