standing on the edge of morning
scent of sex and new found glory
playing as she's pulling back her hair
she drives away
she's feeling worthless
used again but nothing's different
she stayed the night
but knows he doesn't care

home by three
deafening quiet
the porch light's off
yes they forgot it
she'd cry herself to sleep
but she don't dare
then she wants to be a model
she wants to hear she's beautiful
she's beautiful

i want to save you
i want to save you
i need you
save me too
i want to save you

dressed by dawn and out the door
no light
she memorized the floor
so she could leave without being detected
she works till three
it's uniform
she dreams that he'll come by the store
she prays for days
the boys mean she's protected
and she wants someone to see her
she needs to hear she's beautiful
she's beautiful

i want to save you
i want to save you
i need you
save me too
i want to save you

and she won't sleep
she won't sleep
and she won't sleep
at all

i want to save you
i want to save you
i need you
save me too
i want to save you
(let me save you)
i want to save you
(let me save you)
i want to save you
(let me save you)
i want to save you

    General Commentthis song is awesome to listen to when youre just driving down the highway for a good think.

    i think this song is just all about a girl who really likes a guy, she knows hes bad for her but she still sneaks out and has sex with him. her parents dont give her enough attetion so she strives for some from this guy, but he just wont give her any. she isnt very confident with herself and thinks shes ugly. she needs sombody to tell her elsewise . shes depressed and in this song , andrew is telling her he wants to save her and she just wont let him

    General Commentthis song is about a girl whose being used by a guy she cares for greatly. shes not a girl whose sleeping around. she just cares for this one guy who she cant seem to seperate herself from. she knows he doesnt feel the same way about her but over and over again she goes back..hoping one day he'll tell her what she needs to hear. shes sick of wasting her time, its so routine she doesn't even cry herself to sleep anymore.

    General CommentI love this song, well Something Corporate just plain rocks!!!!! The line that says "And she wants someone to see her she needs to hear she's beautiful..." is so true! I can just relate to a lot of their songs and they make me smile.
