Save Me


About Save Me

"Save Me" is a song by American rock band Shinedown. The song was released as the first single in promotion of the band's second studio album, Us and Them. "Save Me" was the theme song for WWE's No Mercy 2005 pay-per-view event, and is their second most commercially successful single to date, reaching number one on the U. S. mainstream rock chart (and remaining there for 12 weeks). It is also Shinedown's third-highest charting song on the Billboard Hot 100 (behind "Second Chance" (number 7) and "If You Only Knew" (number 42), peaking at number 72. The foundations of the song came around when the band's singer, Brent Smith, was just 16 years old and beginning to make demo tracks. At the time the single was released to radio, the band was still working to complete the album which had not yet been mixed or mastered. According to Brent Smith, "when the first single, 'Save Me', hit the radio, I still hadn't written lyrics for four of the songs nor had sung four others on the album. I was in the studio working my ass off to get finished". 


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

I got a candle
And I've got a spoon
I live in a hallway with no doors and no rooms
And under a window sill
They all were found
A touch of concrete within the doorway
Without a sound

Someone save me if you will
And take away all these pills
And please just save me, if you can
From my blasphemy in my wasteland

How did I get here
And what went wrong
Couldn't handle forgiveness
Now I'm far beyond gone
And I can hardly remember
The look of my own eyes
How could I love this,
My life so dishonest
It made me compromise

Someone save me if you will
And take away all these pills
And please just save me, if you can
From my blasphemy in my wasteland

Jump in the water
Jump in with me
Jump on the altar
Lay down with me
My hardest question
To answer is why

Someone save me if you will
And take away all these pills
And please just save me, if you can
From my blasphemy in my wasteland

Someone save me [Repeat: x2]
Somebody save me [Repeat: x2]
Please don't erase me
