"Save Him" as written by and Justin Nozuka....
She loves him more
He loves her more,
Seems like they won't ever let each other go,
Laughing and kissing it's a match made in heaven
Behind the rings on their fingers
Imprints the ink deep in the inner
That has stained their souls together now
Stained soul mates forever now
Seems like they've made it to the other side where the grass is greener
And the sky is always blue
And it goes on forever and ever but there is only room for two
Deep at night I'm awakened from my dreams,
Next door, yelling cries mercy she is begging please
"Don't end my life you're all I need and darling I will never leave"
And then she prayed on her knees, she said

[Chorus: x4]
"Save him, save him from the hand he that beats me on"

Dark clouds cover her paradise,
She covers her eyes and hides behind enemy lines,
And she walks through the night with her child in her arms
She's thrown back hostage'd
See twenty years ago when she was just ten years old
Lost in imagination she was left alone
And pops had nothing to let his anger on oh he beat her cold
She used to pray on her knees, she said

[Chorus]

Deep at night I'm awakened from my dreams,
Next door, yelling cries mercy she's begging please,-
"Get up, get up", he brings her to her feet,
And smacks her down till she falls to the ground
And over and over again,
He brings her to her feet till she can no longer stand -
And still the beating never ends
On and on and on it goes
Until he brings out a gun
And says to her "stop crying and bring me my son"
She cries harder and harder
He cries harder and harder
She says "baby please don't do this"
Two shots to her chest
And a blow to his own head
She quickly loses breath and blood rushes to their bed
And baby cries his eyes out

[Chorus: x4]

She loves him more
He loves her more,
Seems like they won't ever let each other go,
Laughing and kissing it's a match made in heaven

    General CommentShe's definitely saying "Save him" as in the man who's beating her, not save the son. She truly does love him, but of course he's abusing.

    Crazy song though, easily an all time favorite.

    General CommentIt's the tragic story of a woman who grew up in abuse even though on the outside, her life seems so pleasant and perfect.

    What I wanna question is why the narrator didn't seem to have any remorse when he woke up and heard the whole massacre, but didn't do anything about it. Justin wouldn't be the type to just not think about that.

    General CommentOkay, well, SonnyDeath is sort of right, but there is so much more to the meaning of this song.

    Justin wrote this song about his foster brother's parents. Yes, this is a true story.
    The father was a nasty drunk, and one night it got way out of control. He shot his wife, than shot himself, with the baby, Justin's foster brother, in the roon.
    And in the second verse, it talks about how the mother used to get beat by her father; this is also true.

    This song is amazing in every way, and the whole album is just as amazing.

    General CommentThis is a great song! I'm wondering, when she cries "save him", is she asking to save her child? I'm thinking that it's too late for her to be saved, and she realizes that. I don't think she's talking about her lover either. I could be wrong, but it makes sense to me.

    General CommentI was non-chalantly listening to this song on my playlist and the lyrics just hit me. Well-done. I am still in shock of what a great artist he is, unbelievable really.

    General CommentThis song was playing on my playlist and the lyrics hit me. Geez, his voice is amazing.

    Clearly, the song is about abuse and it's vicious cycle. Such a sad story, and it's horrible that it's happening to people.

    My favorite line:
    "Don't end my life, you're all I need."
    The emotion he puts in that sentence alone gives me goosebumps.

    General CommentI believe justin nozuka wrote the chorus line "save him - save him from the hand that he beats me on" to show that the girl feels it is not her man's fault that he is beating her. She is so used to being victimized by him and her father that she is finding excuses to not blame them for what they are doing. She accepts their treatment of her instead.

    General CommentI think like it says you know no matter how perfect a situation may seem there are always going to be issues. And someone said they didn't know what he meant when the lady was saying "Save Him" well i see it as her saying she knows what he is capable of doing and she knows what damages can come out of what he is doing and also that she kinda knew he would get out of hand and ruin not only her life but the life of his own....just all the happy things we all would see just looking at them

    General CommentThis song is written about Justin's foster brother Christian.
    The baby's mother is singing:
    Save him (save the baby)
    From the hand that he beats me on (baby's father who beats her)
    First few lines about a match made in heaven and also the last line "It's a match made in heaven" is used as an irony. After such a horrible death, they are both now in heaven, happy.
