"Part One (Savannah)" as written by and Benjamin Bridwell Christopher Early....
The bottom, the earth, I have to fall
But you really caught me
You really caught me, dear
At the bottom where I'd fallen

And slowly dear, ask that you dance with me
Here with the shades down
Lights off

When I didn't know you
And everything I do
Done badly

Now, I'll love you always
Even when I say
You distract me

And sit out tonight in some strange place
If we have no friends here
Well, I had a few to begin with

To wake next to you in the morning
And good morning to you
How do you do?
Hey, good morning to you!
More covers for you
Sleep soundly dear, 'cause I have to go

And I'll love you always
When we leave this place
And drive back to Carolina
And down to Savannah and
Stay

    General CommentIt seems like a long distant relationship that's kind of built on false expectations. They care for each other, but aren't sure if they'll ever really be together. They distract each other from the crappy things in their lives, and keep each other from going over the edge. They make up things that are going to happen when they're together. If they're ever together.

    General Commentthis song reflects my recent relationship. we even drove from here in south carolina to savannah to get away and have a nice romantic getaway. we didnt know about this song then, but it really really hits very close to home. this song means everything to me.

    General CommentI love this song so much. it's absolutly beautiful. My take, it's just a couple who are in love. They don't need anyone else, only each other, and they have both saved each other from unhappiness ( the "you really caught me, dear" part ) and drive to savannah to settle down.

    General CommentI get the feeling that the speaker was on the road far from home and was having a horrible time, for whatever reason. He meets a girl at his lowest point and she brings him out of that low point. He realizes he loves her and wants to go somewhere that they can be together without any interruption, so they go off to Savannah (which is in South Carolina and Georgia, but SC is where the band is from) to be alone and start over.
