"Rescue Me" as written by David Jost, Dave Roth, Rebecca Roth, Patrick Benzner and Olaf Weitzl....
This used to be our secret
Now I'm hiding here alone
Can't help but read our names on the wall
And wash them off the stone

I trusted you in every way
But not enough to make you stay
Turn around
I've lost my ground

[Chorus]
Come and rescue me
I'm burning can't you see?
Come and rescue me
Only you can set me free
Come and rescue me

Rescue me
Rescue me

We lied when we were dreaming
Our crying was just fake
I wish you could deny it
Here and today

My S.O.S on radio
The only chance to let you know
What I fear
Can you hear?

[Chorus]

Rescue me
You and me
You and me
You and me

The walls are coming closer
My senses fade away
I'm haunted by your shadow
I reached to feel your face

You're not here
Are you here?

Come and rescue me
Rescue me

[Chorus]

Rescue me
You and me
You and me

Rescue me
You and me
Set me free
Rescue me...

    General Commentwow.. I can really relate to this song. Me and my gf broke up recently and I want her to "rescue me" but it seems she doesnt care thats why on the chorus..

    Come and rescue me
    I'm burning can't you see
    Come and rescue me
    Only you can set me free
    Come and rescue me
    Rescue me

    the girl doesnt even care whatever happens to you because she's either numb or doesnt love you alot. It also means that you gave alot into your relationship but your bf/gf didnt love you that much. OUCH!

    General Commentanother heartbreak song that is absolutly perfect!
    It is showing how a person feels as if they are dying when their heart is broken

    General CommentThis used to be our secret
    Now i'm hidin here alone
    Can't help but our names on the wall
    And wash them off the stone- means that they had a place that they could go to and feel safe. and she or he left him now all he has is his memories and he's trying to erase them

    I trusted you in every way
    But not enough to make you stay
    Turn around
    I've lost my ground- he trusted the person but he lied and kept secret from them and now that the person is gone he regrets not telling them



    Come and rescue me
    I'm burning can't you see
    Come and rescue me
    Only you can set me free
    Come and rescue me
    Rescue me- is saying that he needs and wants the person back in his life. they're the only person who can save him from himself or misery. and they're the only person who can set him free from his lies and secrets. or that they need to forgive him for all the lies and secrets


    We lied when we were dreamin
    Our cryin was just fake
    I wish you could deny it
    Here and today- he doesn't have any ambitions or dreams. And they never really felt so depressed. or depressed ennough to say secrets that hurt them. and he wishes he would have


    My s.o.s. On radio
    The only chance to let you know
    What i fear
    Can you hear- he wants the person to know the secrets and lies he kept. and he hopes its not too late


    The walls are coming closer
    My senses fade away
    I'm haunted by your shadow
    I reach to feel your face
    You're not here
    Are you here?-
    he's holding back so much he's feeling isolated from everyone. all the stuf he kept to himself is turning against him emotionally. he knows the person is gone forever and he regrets never telling them how much they really meant to him and he also regret never telling them his secret/s

    the end is him pleading that the person comes back but it's hopeless he knows they won't thats why he sounds hopeless in the end.

    General CommentLove this song its about bill and a breakup he had with a girl and he is describing his memories and how she broke up with him exspecially in the part
    " I trusted you in every way
    But not enough to make you stay" and how he wants her to come back and recue him so its just basically about a breakup.

    General CommentMy friend thinks this song is about alcohol addiction, because in the music video there are bottles on the floor. I personally think it's simply about being abandoned by someone you once loved, but, hey, you never know.

    General Commentthis is my current favorite among their songs... it speaks right through the brain. i can feel the emotion. i also like it in the German version. there is 'this emotion'. their songs can be simple to complex but you'll love every bit of it.

    General CommentI never understood why my friend liked this song, this is actually the first time I read them. In a way it seems to tell about how much he pain after his boyfriend died..
