Save Me
Aimee Mann Lyrics


You look like a perfect fit
For a girl in need of a tourniquet

But can you save me
Come on and save me
If you could save me
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone

'Cause I can tell
You know what it's like
The long farewell
Of the hunger strike

But can you save me
Come on and save me
If you could save me
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone

You struck me down like radium
Like Peter Pan or Superman

You will come to save me
Come on and save me
If you could save me
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
Except the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
But the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone

Come on and save me
Why don't you save me
If you could save me
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone

Except the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
Except the freaks who could never love anyone

You look like a perfect fit
For a girl in need of a tourniquet

But can you - save me
Come on and - save me
If you could - save me
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone

'Cause I can tell
You know what it's like
The long farewell
Of the hunger strike

But can you save me
Come on and save me
If you could save me
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone

You struck me down like radium
Like Peter Pan or Superman

You will come to save me
C'mon and save me
If you could save me
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
'Cept the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
But the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone

C'mon and save me
Why don't you save me
If you could save me
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone

Except the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
Except the freaks who could never love anyone

Lyrics
You look like a perfect fit
For a girl in need of a tourniquet
But can you save me?
Come on and save me!
If you could save me. . .
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone.
'Cause I can tell
You know what it's like
The long farewell
Of the hunger strike
But can you save me?
Come on and save me!
If you could save me. . .
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
You struck me down like radium
Like Peter Pan or Superman
You will come to save me?
C'mon and save me!
If you could save me. . .
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
'Cept the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
But the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
C'mon and save me
Why don't you save me
If you could save me
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
Except the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
Except the freaks who could never love anyone

You look like
A perfect fit
For a girl in need
Of a tourniquet

But can you, save me
Come on and, save me
If you could, save me
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone

'Cause I can tell
You know what it's like
The long farewell
Of the hunger strike

But can you, save me
Come on and, save me
If you could, save me
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone

You struck me down
Like Radium
Like Peter Pan or Superman

You will come to save me
C'mon and save me
If you could, save me
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
'Cept the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone

Who suspect they could never love anyone


C'mon and save me
Why don't you save me
If you could save me
From the ranks of the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
'Cept the freaks
Except the freaks
Who suspect they could never love anyone
Except the freaks who could never love anyone

While I agree with Christian Hernandez, I watching this for maybe the 200th time, but first on youtube and since I hit my 30s , and at 2:26 ... Dude.. Its a greenscreen and cast didn't have time to participate kinda wrecks the video for me, but like Christian, I'm Amazed it was made. I too love and might be obsessed with Magnolia (things hit you in waves in life). The camera shots, the lighting, i mean omg... I am obsessed with the content and presentation of this movie and now knowing what is so easily done with today's tech, PTA is that much more a genious. If an audience were to see this today, post 2021, they would ... fall in love with it. Part of me feels like the true movie connensuer would take better note of some of the tracking shots and camera tricks/methods/straight up inovative approaches used by under this directors direction.

I will always feel like this is an underrated movie - if you have a loved one who might be older or just doesn't like movies or sitting down and watching something without things blowing up... Know that they will love and think about this flick for weeks after seeing it for the first time. It evolks a certain amount of emotion (i dont care how many times you have seen it - EMOTION) that i rarely get in scenes or movies today - i say rarely because I do get that occasional magnolia moment - but i feel , even if others don't credit it, that this movie set a few bars - tall ones... If your someone who can erase my mind for a period of time (or forever) and want to really do me a favor, erase my mind and let me watch this for the first time again.

The true test of a movie that is truely great is a movie you have seen a thousand times, yet when you watch it with someone who has never seen it before, its like watching it for the first time again x2. Thats how I feel anyway. Goodfellas does it for me too but in a different way.

There are certain things that are speacial to me - things that are as much mine as the director who put it together - this is one of them. If anyone knows what i'm talking about - get's that certain joy in a movie - please let me know what that movie is called in case I have not seen it. Please give me the gift of enjoying something you have the same love for. My logic is that we love this movie, so pretty much every suggestion/referral is going to be a potential life making moment.

Regardless or our politics, creed, physical properties, and cultural proclivities - we are here together - in this thing we call life - right here right now we share a common love that nobody can take from us no matter how hard they try. I am pleased to scroll through the comments when i get a chance - it warms me to know that so many from so far away from me share a common bond. I try not to scroll through them all because I cherrish the few moments i get to enjoy this or parts of this masterpiece while taking in the words/feelings/thoughts/and yes- criticisms occasionally, that others have shared thoughout what will hopefully be an infinate amount of time apart and together in this great big world. Every time I begin to forget the true meaning of what it means to be alive (and im not religious but who knows, everyone evolves and changes) I come back to this.

I just believe in the goodness of humankind and I don't know how to spell so well and every time i have ever put something in a spellchecker / word/ etc it gets kicked back.. so I don't want that and this comes from the heart which is the most important of all. Keep on keeping on and know that no matter what life throws at us... We just figure it out in our own way. I'm sure countless people have looked at me and assumed (in a negative sense) that I was somebody I am completely the opposite of. Never underestimate the power of humankind - everyday we surprise our-own-selves.

As someone obsessed with Magnolia, i’m actually pretty blown away that this music video got made. The film was complicated enough to make! Yet they actually took the time to have Aimee come in on 8 separate occasions to lip sync while some of the finest actors on the planet just sat there in the shot. How in the hell did they manage to get all of this done?

Also, one of the best casts for a music video, even if they’re not doing anything

@MemoryLaneCinema It was a very long and "complex" film. With different parts being filmed weeks and months apart.

@MeMyself andI I’m so obsessed, that I literally just bought a prop frog from the movie 🐸 😬

MeMyself andI

I'm OBSESSED with Magnolia too!
It's so sad that every character in the movie wants to be loved but can't seem to find it
This song just epitomises the whole feel of the movie

Truly a remarkable film...and one of my favorites, ever...
Aimee is amazing...saw her recently in Concert...
Love her.
Happy Birthday Aimee!

Paul Thomas Anderson should be considered one of the greatest directors of our time. Magnolia and Boogie Nights are simply flawless!

Daniel Steven

In fact, he is considered as one of them.

Uma Horder

he us the true best. 9. years late. god.

Planemo

As a PTA fan, i'd say that magnolia and boogie Nights are anything BUT flawless. Every Paul film oozes so much confidence and bravado that it overshadows questionable writing or directing choices. His strength (as for many classic directors) lies in how high he reaches. Any flaw is easily forgotten then. When I watch Magnolia, I remember why i liked it and enjoy it everytime, but the day after, I realize that it's not as carefully thought out and it's extremely megalomaniac.
