Ruth suspects there is someone else, who is that Helen woman ringing John late at night? he is always late home. She knows he wants to be rescued from his situation, and a man like John will probably get rescued by another, younger woman.


Someone to rescue you
Is that why I’m losing you?
Someone to rescue you

It’s dark where you’ve been
It’s hard not to win

By yourself by the bedroom light
Still up though its way past two
You’re sending messages through the night
Who’s that calling you?
Why’s she getting through?
What’s she mean to you?

Someone to rescue you
Is that why I’m losing you?
Someone to rescue you

It’s dark where you’ve been
(I tried to talk to you)
You’re bent over screens
(I never can get through)

You’ve fallen down inside yourself
You don’t even see me
But run our years back to front
Something’s driving you
What you’ve got to prove
I’m not enough for you

But surely someone now draws near
She’ll take you far away from here
My looks are gone, our children too
But someone will rescue you.
