I can save you
if you ask me, just ask me to.
There's hope for you tonight.
I can save you
if you ask me, just ask me to.
I can save your life.

I saw you move from across the room,
I knew who you were.
You act like you are afraid of who you are,
I'm afraid for you.
Try, trust and believe in me.
I can show you that there's so much more.
There's still hope for you.
Let me show you I can save you.

I can save you
if you ask me, just ask me to.
There's hope for you tonight.
I can save you
if you ask me, just ask me to.
I can save your life.

One day you'll open your eyes, take a look inside
I just saved your life.
Just take a look inside, I hope you know what it's like for you to be alright.
I am for you.

Don't give up just believe I will be right there,
when your hopes and your dreams are on the line.
Don't give up just believe I'll be right by your side,
when your hopes and your dreams are on the line.

I can save you
if you ask me, just ask me to.
There's hope for you tonight.
I can save you
if you ask me, just ask me to.
I can save your life.

    General CommentAHH. I always associate it with Sherlock Holmes XD (I need to stop reading them dammit but Doyle keeps dragging me in!) The real meaning of this song, however, is probably him liking a suicidal girl and wanting to help her.

    General CommentCould be about either a suicidal girl and him wanting to help her or about how people can't be saved spiritually, not that detailed of a song so a lot is left up to interpretation. I would guess it's about the suicidal girl or something because of the part where he says one day you will open your eyes and discover that he saved you because if you are being saved by God you will probably know it. Just my take on it

    My InterpretationI am nearly positive that this song is Kellin talking to a girl he sees and can tell she is depressed/suicidal. He is saying that she is scared of life and avoids a lot of things, but he is willing to help her get past that fear and show her that there is more to life than unhappiness.

    General CommentUgh, the religiousness of the song is toxic. NO. JUST NO. But I still love the song, and SWS.

    Song MeaningI think the song could be taken religiously OR not, just depends on who you are. In my opinion if you are looking at it religiously...

    "I can save you
    I can save your life"

    These lines are God's point of view saying I can help. Basically the whole song in is God's point of view. He is trying to reach out to a depressed/suicidal girl. BUT if you are looking at non-religiously than it's Kellin, falling for a girl who is struggling with depression and he loves her so much and all he wants is to save her and help her.
