"Save You" as written by Neilson Hubbard and Matthew Perryman....
I wanna rock-n-roll
I wanna give my soul
I'm wanting to believe
I'm not too old
Don't want to make it up
Don't want to let you down
I want to fly away
But I'm stuck on the ground

So, help me decide
Help me to make up
Make up my mind
Wouldn't that save you
Wouldn't that save you
Wouldn't that save you

Watched it all go by
Was it really true
Is that what it was?
Was that really you?

I'm looking back again
Tracing back the threads
You said I was a mess
Or was it just in my head

So, help me decide
Help me to make up
Make up my mind
Wouldn't that save you
Wouldn't that save you
Wouldn't that save you
(2x)

Something's gotta break
You gotta swing the bat
Too many years of dying
Why is that?

So, help me decide
Help me to make up
Make up my mind
Wouldn't that save you
Wouldn't that save you
Wouldn't that save you
(3x)

    General CommentThis is a wondeful song!
    It reminds me of the movie 'The Butterfly Effect' and the way Evan goes back in time to save everyone from the horrible things that are going to happen in their lives.

    'Was that really you
    I'm Looking back again
    I'm tracing back a friend
    You said it was a miss
    Was it just in my head'

    ^that part also perfectly describes the end scene or rather the alternate happy ending in which Evan and Kayleigh walk past each other, then turn around and she asks 'do I know you'?

    General CommentI think he actually sings "I'm tracing back the threads" not "tracing back a friend."

    General CommentI think this is a break up song, more or less

    Don't wanna make it up
    I Don't wanna let you down
    I wanna fly away
    But I'm stuck on the ground

    He doesn't want to make their relationship up, but he doesn't want to hurt her.
    He wants to get away from it all, but he feels trapped.

    So help me decide
    Help me to make up
    Make up my mind
    Wouldn't that save you
    Wouldn't that save you
    Wouldn't that save you

    He wants her to decide, should he stay or go. He thinks if she makes the decision that it will save her from the loss.

    Watch it all go by
    Was it really true
    Is that what it was
    Was that really you

    Looking back on their relationship, was there really love there, or did he fall for what she pretended to be.

    I'm looking back again
    I'm tracing back the threads
    You said it was a miss
    Was it just in my head

    He looks back and sees the fabric of their relationship unraveling, but he's not sure if he did the right thing.

    General CommentI always think of the scene from One Tree Hill where Brooke cries about Julian leaving. Such a sad scene
