"You Save Me" as written by Troy Verges and Brett James....
Every now and then I get a little lost
My strings all get tangled, my wires all get crossed
Every now and then I'm right up on the edge
Dangling my toes out over the ledge
I just thank God you're here

Cause when I'm a bullet shot out of a gun
Cause when I'm a firecracker comin' undone
Or when I'm a fugitive ready to run, all wild-eyed and crazy
No matter where my reckless soul takes me
Baby, you save me

It's hard lovin' a man, that's got a Gypsy soul
I don't know how you do it; I'm not sure how you know
The perfect thing to say, to save me from myself
You're the angel that believes in me, like nobody else
And I thank God you do

Cause when I'm a bullet shot out of a gun
Cause when I'm a firecracker comin' undone
Or when I'm a fugitive ready to run, all wild-eyed and crazy
No matter where my reckless soul takes me
Baby, you save me

I know I don't tell you nearly enough
That I couldn't live one day without your love

When I'm a ship tossed around on the waves
Up on a high wire that's ready to break
When I've had just about all I can take
Baby, you
Baby, you save me

Cause when I'm a bullet shot out of a gun
Cause when I'm a firecracker comin' undone
Or when I'm a fugitive ready to run, all wild-eyed and crazy
No matter where my reckless soul takes me
Baby, you save me

    General CommentLove this song, one of my favorite off the new album. It's obviously about a special person in his life who is always there for him when he cannot keep himself together. It really means a lot to me, because I tend to loose grip of reality from time to time, and my girlfriend is always there to set me straight and hold on tight. Great song.

    General CommentThis is hands down Kenny Chesney's best song and it's not even close. Beautiful lyrics.

    General Commentthis is how i feel about my very close friend. every time i hear it i think of him and what he has done for me. the part that makes me think of him the most is. "When I'm a fugitive ready to run, all wild-eyed and crazy, no matter where my reckless soul takes me baby you save me" it just describes all the problems i have and how he saves me from doing something reckless
