She's back on drugs again
Even though she knows it ain't right
She can't even call up her friends
And say "help me save my life"
She's so ashamed of herself that she's
Come full circle
Nobody understands what it's like to
Be this girl
So she disappeared, and she
Wasn't clear, and she
Didn't say where she was going

Save my life, won't you help me
Save my life, won't you help me
Save my life, can you hear me
Save my life, won't you help me

She had the man of her dreams
And some success
And she was so happy, and looking well
It was this one dark night, that she
And then the next morning that she
felt like a piece of shit
So she's hanging out, and she's
With the crowd, and she's
Travelin' where the wind is blowing


And he's a real good guy and he
Wants to save her 'cause he's
More than been there all before
And she's so confused and his heart
Is breaking and he
Dreams she's knocking on his door

    General CommentIn my opinion, I think that this song is about a close friend of P!nk's who was addicted to drugs, and feels like she has no one to help her, not even God. It's a very personal song, and I love it!

    General CommentYeah. and the girl was 'clean' from drugs for a while (the happy bit) but then she 'slipped' meaning back onto the drugs..

    General CommentThis song is just amazing, it means so much to me at the moment, im going throught a real hard time at the moment and have just discovered this song.
    Pinks songs all mean so much to me, but this one really hits me with the lyrics.

    God bless Pink and her amazing talent, may her talent continue for many more songs like this one.

    General CommentI thought I had once heard her say this song is a mini look into the toils of Janis Joplin...
