"Save Yourself" as written by and Jokull Juliusson....
It weighs heavier on one's heart
I could tell right from the start that sweet ones are hard to come across
Well there is more than meets the eye
I like yours as red as vine
Someone else's gain will be my loss

Woah, woah, oh oh
Oh woah, woah
Woah woah oh
Hey hey

Well little things that make you smile
Dancing barefoot in the dark
If only I had strength to change your mind
Oh for what you need
You will not see
Choose your words before you speak, oh
Can you see that all you've got is time?

Woah now
Save yourself
Oh you save yourself
Oh darling save yourself for someone else
Yeah, save yourself
Oh darling save yourself
Oh won't you save yourself forsomeone else

Woah
Don't give in to their feelings
Don't give in darkness and faith
You should be safe, yeah, with someone else

Tell your secrets to the night
You do yours and I do mine
So we won't have to keep them all inside
Oh, for one so pure
Count these off
Let your feelings take control
Hold on to the world that he's begging for

Woah now
Save yourself
Oh won't you save yourself
Go on and save yourself for someone else
Yes darling save yourself
Oh won't you save yourself
Go on and save yourself for someone else

Woah are you going to break?
Yeah are you going to break?
Woah aren't you going to take me?
Yeah are you going to break?
Woah are you going to break?
Woah are you going to break?
Woah what's it going to take?
Yeah, are you going to break?

Are you going to break?
Are you going to break?
Are you going to break?

    General CommentThis song is powerful in more than the intensity buildup as it goes on. The lyrics are very relatable across many experiences, so it could be interpreted in numerous ways that could be logically argued.

    My take on the lyrics are that he is singing about someone he sees as a beautiful soul, but is worried that her purity will be taken for granted. It sounds to me as though she is in a relationship with someone now and he’s pleading for her to reconsider things. “Choose your words before you speak.. can’t you see that all you got is time” could suggest she is either going to enter into a serious relationship (possibly was proposed to) with someone who doesn’t appreciate, will not nourish, or will destroy the amazing soul she has to offer.
    It also could be someone he is involved with or wants to be with him, but doesn’t feel as though he is who she should love or he will not be able to give back what she wants to give him. It’s “heavier” on him to know she’s so pure yet is with/trying to be with him.
    However he means it, he sees this person as a truly special soul and doesn’t want that to be spoiled. Be it not being with him, having lost her and wishing he hadn’t, or just giving her some advice to protect who she is, he wants her to stay just as she is inside and not let the world or someone corrupt that.
