"Love Will Save You" as written by and Michael Rolfe Gira....
Love will save you when the ocean splits itself in two
Love will save you when the cold wind blows right through you
Love will save you when the poison eats the precious air
And love will save you from the snake that crawls around down there
But it won't save me

Love will save you from the evil and the greed of ignorant men
And love will save you from the guilt you feel when you
betray your only friend
Love will save you from yourself when you lose control
And love will save you from all the lies your lover ever told you
But it won't save me

Love will save you from the truth when you think you're free
Love will save you from the cold light of boring reality
Love will save you from the corruption of your lazy-minded soul
And love will save you from your selfish and distorted goals
But it won't save me

Love will save you from the black night and the lightning and the ghost
Love will save you from your misery, then tie you to the bloody post
Love will save you from the hands that pull you down beneath the sea
Love may save all you people, but it will never, never save me
No it won't save me

    General CommentLove can blind you of misery and shelter you from emotional pain, but the jaded, cynical, or loveless have no such imaginary shield.

    General Commentcynothoglys is right, love will blind you (or keep you from feeding the pain in your life) but Gira trys to send the message that love will save your soul, although even though he loves, he can't put a veil over reality
