"Rescue Me" as written by Jaime A. Kyle and Nick Graham....
So maybe I?m the one that needed saving
Someone to rescue me from myself
And now the memories are slowly fading
Wish I could see me through the eyes of someone else

I remember the look in your eyes
When you were reaching out to me
And I tried to help you
But now I'm haunted by the hero that I couldn?t be

So maybe I?m the one that needed saving
Someone to rescue me from myself
And now the memories are slowly fading
Wish I could see me through the eyes of someone else

I drown out my thoughts now
As pathetic as it may seem
So just take it away now, help me forget how
I just stood there frozen by your screams

(chorus)
I know I shouldn?t blame myself
For what I cannot control
It seems so impossible to ever let this go

So maybe I?m the one that needed saving
Someone to rescue me from myself
And now the memories are slowly fading
Wish I could see me through someone else
Maybe I?m the one that needed saving
Can you help me now
Trapped in this life with no way out
Sometimes I wish I was someone else
Someone else

    General CommentI'm surprised nobody has posted or commented on this song. Awesome band..

    To me, this song is about a guy talking about a girl he recently broke up with. This girl either struggles with some kind of addiction or deep depression, and even though she would reach out for him so much when they were together, it must have been so bad that he felt there was nothing he could do to help her at the time. But now, he is looking back with regret and almost feeling like he could have done more to help her.

    "So maybe I’m the one that needed saving
    Someone to rescue me from myself
    And now the memories are slowy fading"

    ^This is him further showing his deep regret of what he didn't do. He feels like he is the one who needs to be saved now because of how badly it eats him alive, or maybe he feels like he wishes someone would have been like "don't give up dude.. keep trying to help her" while it was happening.

    "Wish I could see me through the eyes of someone else."

    ^Again, if he was another person looking at him and the situation at the time, he feels like he would be able to realize and recognize that he didn't help enough.

    "I know I shouldn’t blame myself
    For what I cannot control
    It seems so impossible to ever let this go"

    ^deep down, he knows that there probably was nothing he could do to truly help in the end, but there is still that little voice of shame and guilt in his head telling him otherwise.


    Just my take.. could be totally wrong. Overall, EXCELLENT track and a great band.
