"Save Yourself" as written by and Sharon Van Etten....
I want every town, I need you to know
There's nothing left to sell me, I'm broke

I just want these holes for when I try to run
For no reason, or so I'm told

Don't you think I know you're only trying to save yourself
Don't you think I know you're only trying to save yourself
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Ancient in one long, incidental month
You had a bad day, I want home

You still make me smile, as much as I am reeling
It has been a while, please don't make me show I'm not your gal

Don't you think I know you're only trying to save yourself
Don't you think I know you're only trying to save yourself
Just like everyone else
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Try and make me feel like I'm your number one
Every other one, well, shit, get real

Know you're balding still, you're older than you feel
Think a little harder, a little modest and humble be
I won't wait around

Don't you think I know you're only trying to save yourself
Don't you think I know you're only trying to save yourself
Just like everyone else
You're just like everyone else
You're just like everyone else
You're just like everyone else

    General Commentthese are just from the cd booklet:

    I want every town.
    I need you to know -
    There's nothing left to sell me. I'm broke.
    I just want these holes
    for when I try to run for no reason, or so I'm told.
    Don't you think I know you're only trying to save yourself?
    Don't you think I know you're only trying to save yourself? (ooh...)
    Ancient in one long, incidental month.
    You had a bad day, I want home.
    You still make me smile, as much as I am reelin'...
    It had been a while.
    Please don't make me show I'm not your gal...
    Don't you think I know you're only trying to save yourself?
    Don't you think I know you're only trying to save yourself?
    Just like everyone else. (ooh...oooh...)
    Try and make me feel
    like I'm your number one,
    every other one.
    Well, shit - get real.
    Know you're balding still.
    You're older than you feel.
    Think a little harder,
    A little modest and humble be.
    I won't wait around.
    Don't you think I know you're only trying to save yourself?
    Don't you think I know you're only trying to save yourself?
    Just like everyone else.
    You're just like everyone else.

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song. Wow. Makes me feel the way I feel when I listen to Johnny Cash's American Album IV…His version of "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" came to mind first.
