"Rescue Song (RAC Remix)" as written by Tim Anderson and Monica Birkenes....
My dress is torn, you have a black eye
you got from a giving kind
but your coat is big and I am warm
I'll ask if I can walk you home

grey like the gravel under our shoes
the sky doesn't clarify
simple is something of a mystery
no longer making sense to me

got a gun and an eagles eye
but would like somewhere safe to hide
you've a reason and so have I, it's true

I'm gonna rescue you
so you can rescue me too
make it a rendezvous

I got my best dress on
and you've a smile and a bruise
so come and rescue me,
and me you

I am the heat in an empty room
the cold coming through the walls
your sofas' old, but I am new
and there is better on the brew

my breath is soft, your hands are unlocked
un-manned and un-vertical
I feel strings without the black n blues
a weekend in a weekdays shoes

got a gun and an eagles eye
but would like somewhere safe to hide
you've a reason and so have I, it's true

I'm gonna rescue you
so you can rescue me too
make it a rendezvous

I got my best dress on
and you've a smile and a bruise
so come and rescue me
and me you

    My InterpretationThis song is about a couple who likes to take care of each other; it's a pretty basic need. The woman is perfectly capable of protecting herself ("got a gun and an eagle's eye") but that doesn't necessarily mean she doesn't want to be taken care of and protected by someone else every once and a while ("but would like somewhere safe to hide"); however, she still has to prove that she is not weak in her own right. When the song begins, it's actually the aftermath of an event: the boy has physically rescued her from an attack ("my dress is torn, you have a black eye.") They go back to his place and she sees that his "sofa is old" and his "room is cold", thus symbolizing that he leads a sad and lonely life. He's has just rescued her, so she owes him one; she will help the boy emotionally by bringing "heat" to the cold (lonely) apartment and "new" (hope) to the old sofa. She will "rescue" the boy emotionally to repay him for his literal rescue; their relationship will be mutually beneficial ("you've a reason and so have I, it's true".)

    General CommentI think this song is about two people who, individually, are just a big mess. But together they save each other, maybe fix each other a little.
