"Save You" as written by and Charles-andre/bouvier Comeau....
Take a breath, I pull myself together
Just another step until I reach the door
You'll never know the way it tears me up inside to see you...
I wish that I could tell you something to take it all away

Sometimes I wish I could save you,
And there's so many things that I want you to know
I won't give up 'til it's over
If it takes you forever, I want you to know...

When I hear your voice,
It's drowning in the whispers
It's just skin and bones,
There's nothing left to take
And no matter what I do,
I can't make you feel better
If only I could find the answer to help me understand...

Sometimes I wish I could save you,
And there's so many things that I want you to know
I won't give up 'til it's over
If it takes you forever, I want you to know...

If you fall, stumble down, I'll pick you up off the ground
If you lose faith in you, I'll give you strength to pull through
Tell me you won't give up,
'Cause I'll be waiting if you fall
You know I'll be there for you

If only I could find the answer to take it all away...

Sometimes I wish I could save you,
And there's so many things that I want you to know
I won't give up 'til it's over
If it takes you forever, I want you to know...

I wish I could save you...
I want you to know...
I wish I could save you...

    General CommentWell, this song is about Pierre's brother's battle with cancer, and how he wishes to save him.

    General CommentThere are so many different ways people can see this song, but it hits home for me in a completely different way then most.

    I was dating a guy for a while and we were what everyone considered "the perfect couple".
    He started having family problems and he was going through a lot so he was acting weird all the time. I always was here for him, but it got to be too much for him to handle. We broke up but he was still my best friend, but I still saw him changing a lot and going in the wrong direction.

    He started dating another girl who was the worst influence he could have on him. He started running away from home constantly, staying drunk, not coming home, and it was all because of his girlfriend. We completely stopped talking because of her and I haven't talked to him since. I know I could make an effort to be his friend again, but it wouldn't be worth it at all.
    The point I'm getting at is, I know the amazing person he was, and stood back and watched him become this horrible person he is now. I know that one day it's gonna catch up to him that he's messing up big time, and I know that no matter what he has put me through I'll be here when he finally crashes and can't do it anymore.

    "It tears me up inside to see you
    I wish that I could tell you something
    To take it all away"

    "If you fall, stumble down
    I'll pick you up off the ground
    If you lose faith in you
    I'll give you strength to pull through
    Tell me you won't give up
    'Cause I'll be waiting if you fall
    You know I'll be there for you"

    General CommentThe lead singer's brother had cancer so that's what has obviously inspired this song.
    This song explains every detail of what someone who is witnessing someone go through cancer.
    What they are going through
    How they are feeling
    What they want to do
    What they cant do.

    Pierre has done an amazing job on this song!

    These are my favourtie parts of the song:

    " Take a breath
    I'll pull myself together
    Just another step
    Until I reach the door
    You'll never know the way
    It tears me up inside to see you
    I wish that I could tell you something
    To take it all away
    "

    &&

    "If you fall, stumble down
    I'll pick you up off the ground
    If you lose faith in you
    I'll give you strength to pull through
    Tell me you won't give up
    'Cause I'll be waiting if you fall
    You know I'll be there for you"

    I like those because i can relate to the lyrics.
    Defintally one of my all time favourtie songs and the band that saved/changed my life.

    General CommentThis is one of the songs that I relate to the most. This perfectly describes they way I feel about my boyfriend. He's got such a messed up past and sometimes I wish I could just save him from all that he's been through. He deserves so much better than what he has. I wish that I could take it all away.
    I wanna learn how to play it on the guitar so I can sing it to him. ♥

    General CommentFirst time I heard it, I thought of say his girlfriend having an eating disorder.

    "When I hear your voice
    It's drowning in the whispers
    You're just skin and bones
    There's nothing left to take
    And no matter what I do
    I can't make you feel better
    If only I could find the answer
    To help me understand"

    General CommentThe song is so beautiful and amazing.

    "If you fall, stumble down
    I'll pick you up off the ground
    If you lose faith in you
    I'll give you strength to pull through
    Tell me you won't give up
    'Cause I'll be waiting if you fall
    You know I'll be there for you"

    It's so heartfelt and real.
