"Saving Us Tonight" as written by Sean Mcconnell and Steve Mcmorran....
far above the city streets

sits the queen of apathy

watching the rain fall

staring out the window

i’m right here but you’re still alone

drowning in it all

baby talk to me

baby can’t you see

that everything we fail to recognize

takes its toll and

everything that’s eating us alive

kills us slowly

you can say there’s nothing wrong

close your eyes until it’s gone

but i won’t let us die without a fight

i’m saving us tonight

so tell me what your running from

don’t be afraid to come undone

all you’re scared to say

isn’t worth the work it takes

to keep it in and live this way

with all the heartache

baby talk to me

don’t just let it be

cause everything we fail to recognize

takes its toll and

everything that’s eating us alive

kills us slowly

you can say there’s nothing wrong

close your eyes until it’s gone

but i won’t let us die without a fight

i’m saving us tonight

you’d forgive everyone else

of what you can’t forgive yourself

we’re all a bunch of crooked souls

gripping what we won’t let go of

we all get to this point in love

most get here and just give up

but i won’t let us die

without a fight

i’m saving us tonight

    General CommentTo me it sounds like the speaker is singing to someone he is in love with who is struggling with depression or a secret past filled with regret. And he is kind of helplessly saying, "Please talk to me" and "you're not alone" but he knows that she/he can't hear him, and wont communicate, and it is ruining their relationship. Maybe the other party has even suggested that they go their separate ways. And the singer knows that the only thing that will make her/him better is to 'come clean' so-to-speak. To let go of the power of those secrets by revealing them. And he/she is saying that he/she will listen and not judge, and will be there no matter what, and that he/she wont give up. I live how he says, "Most get here and just give up, but I wont let us die without a fight."

    It's kind of a sad song because it doesn't resolve really. The only true resolve in the song is that of the singer who is unwilling to lose the relationship without a fight to the death.Kind of a like a 'I'll make it work, or die trying attitude', and is determined to fight no matter what. There is an irony, I think, because so few people feel like this about relationships, nowadays, or give up too easily, but he/she is saying, "Maybe you expect me to give up, but I won't." Its a true love song, not just about the mushy, feel-good times, but about fighting for something even when it might not seem worth it to anyone by you.
