"Save Your Heart" as written by and Jeremy Lenzo Derek Sanders....
She fell to the bottom of her life
This wasn't meant for her too
She struggles to find herself in time
But she can barely move
Just try and get up
You've gotta slowly brush off
I know that words aren't enough
But you're better than this

Save your heart
For someone that's worth dying for
Don't give it away
Torn apart
Never getting what you've been crying for
It's always the same

She turns the pages everyday
Just to change the mood
But every chapter reads the same
So hard to make it through
Just try and get up
You've gotta slowly brush off
I know that words aren't enough
But you're better than this

Save your heart
For someone that's worth dying for
Don't give it away
Torn apart
Never getting what you've been crying for
It's always the same

And you give
And they take
And it's love that you want
But not love that you make
Save your heart
For someone that's worth dying for
Don't give it away

Save your heart
For someone who leaves you breathless
And I know that you're scared
Seems like someone said you had it in you
All along you said you knew this was wrong
But still worth dying for

Save your heart
For someone who leaves you breathless
And I know that you're scared
Seems like someone said you had it in you
All along you said you knew this was wrong
But still worth dying for

And you give (And you give)
And they take (And they take)
And it's love that you want,
But not love that you make

Save your heart
For someone that's worth dying for
Don't give it away
Don't give it away

    My InterpretationSo I'm sorry this is crazily long. But this song means so much to me, and when I write about the meaning, I'm writing about myself as well.

    To me, this song is about a girl who just falls for this guy really hard, and when it doesn't work it, she takes it out on herself, essentially hitting rock bottom alone "She fell to the bottom of her life, this wasn't meant for two." This girl had tried everything, even changing who she was to get this guy, but it didn't work and now "she struggles to find herself in time", maybe before she loses it (maybe from self-harm, or depression), maybe even killing herself. "But she can barely move", meaning the guy was harder to get over than she thought.

    "Just try to get up, you've gotta slowly brush off. I know that words aren't enough, but you're better than this." This means the girl has to keep on trying (get up), and brush off the pain, even though she feels like she is worthless, and like there's no life after all that has happened.

    "Save your heart, for someone that's worth dying for. Don't give it away". I find this part sort of a play on words of what this girl is feeling, because she feels like if she can't have him, she'll die. But he isn't worth death, because she doesn't deserve her heart because he hasn't done anything kind for her, but she gives her heart to him regardless.

    The feeling of how much she is broken by all that has happened, and never gets what she's been crying for every night, and how the situation doesn't change, yet she doesn't give herself enough worth to walk away is shown in "Torn apart, never getting what you've been crying for, it's always the same."

    "She turns the pages every day, just to change the mood." I believe that this part means she tries to change the mood of how he feels about her and forget the past and moving on (turning the pages), by going from always being there, to just not fitting effortlessly into the few empty spaces of his life where she'll get his attention, which keeps her hanging on.

    However, her efforts often mean nothing at all, because the past just keeps repeating itself, sending her deeper into her depression, making each day harder to get through. "But every chapter reads the same, it's so hard to make it through."

    "And you give, and they take." The girl gives out so much love, and the guy and other people take it, but they don't return it, making her feel so empty on the inside, like there's nothing left.

    I had trouble with this part. "And it's love that you want, but not love that you make." To me, I find this means the girl wants true love, not a love that she has to fabricate herself and compensate for the love she isn't receiving.

    "I know that you're scared, seems like someone said you had it in you." This girl fears failure, which could be why she refuses to let go, because someone (the guy) said she had love in her, and could do anything.

    And yet this girl knows what she is doing to herself is wrong, and that the guy doesn't deserve her after everything she's given him that he's thrown away, but still believes in him regardless, because she irrationally thinks that he is worth it. "All along, you said you knew this was wrong, but still worth dying for."

    And that's it. If you have any comments, I would be glad to hear them, because this is an amazing song.

    General CommentThis is a great song. It's pretty self explanatory. I feel like it's about a girl who is with people, just so she can say she's in love. The narrator is telling her that she doesn't need it, and she is above this. Inside, the girl really just wants someone who loves her, but she's blinded and lets people take advantage of her, just to leave her. In the end, she learns.

    This song is awesome, and so is the new album. Mayday Parade has yet to disappoint me.

    Song Meaningthis song really reminds me of one of my best friends... i was basically the first person she ever dated, and this was almost 2 years ago. she fell in love with me, and she still is in love with me and it sucks...
    but anyway. since the last time we dated (we tried multiple times) she's tried to date all the wrong people and they never go well. she thinks she falls for the people right after they start dating, and it's terrible for her. she always ends up getting heartbroken, and none of her relationships since me have lasted more that a couple weeks.
    she recently got dumped, a few weeks ago, and as always she was feeling very desperate and lonely. she put on her myyearbook page, "all i want is for a pretty girl to love me" and would keep complaining about being single. she seems to have this mindset that she needs to have a girlfriend to be happy, when i know that's not the case.
    seeing her like this killed me. one day when i was listening to mayday parade, this song came on and i was like, "wow, this song is definitely jessica." so i showed it to her, and for once, she's actually happy being single.

    General Commentthis is the best off the new album, that i've heard so far.
    i just feel like it is more heartfelt like their previous album was.
    honestly i don't think their new album is that great,
    but thats just my opinion.

    General CommentMy interpretation of the song is that a girl is in love with a guy... she has been for a long time. They still aren't together, but she still feels that this relationship is worth all the pain that she experiences everyday. He takes all the love from her, but doesn't give her any in return. No matter what anyone says, she still longs for him to love her. She knows that this relationship is wrong for her, but she can't let go.

    The new album is amazing, so heartfelt and touching :)
