Save Me
The S.I.G.I.T Lyrics

Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴


My heart is hard as stone
On my own, alone, I carry it home

I used to waste the days
So distraught,
I thought:
I'm changing my ways

Now you're changing my ways

You save me
Save me from myself
There is no one else
I'd lean on
Save me
You save me from myself
There is no one else to set me free

The start of something new
Is what I find
When I'm just looking at you
You lift me off the ground
Keep holding my hand
I won't land
Won't even look down

Don't look down
Don't look down

You save me
Save me from myself
There is no one else
I'd lean on
Save me

You save me from myself
There is no one else to set me free

Overall Meaning

The S.I.G.I.T's song "Save Me" is a raw and emotional depiction of the struggles of addiction, depression, and betrayal. The opening lyrics "Lost up in my own mind lately, People that I love they betrayed me, Struggle with the drugs can you blame me, No you cant save me no you cant save me" illuminates the feelings of isolation, hopelessness, and a lack of trust from the people closest to the songwriter. The lyrics are a reflection of how addiction can consume a person, in this case, the singer, and lead them into a position where they believe that no one can help or save them. The singer is dealing with a deep-set sense of pain and disappointment following being betrayed by people they trusted and struggle with drugs.

The second verse of the song delves into the backstory of the singer, revealing that they were a child from a broken home, left alone to face the world. The intimate details of the verse paint a bleak picture of the trauma and frustration that come with growing up in such an environment. These lyrics are a look at how this type of brokenness can lead to drug addiction and a feeling of hopelessness that in turn creates more pain for the singer. The verse also reveals a moment where the singer's parent committed suicide, leaving them alone and feeling lost in the world. The pain and trauma of this moment seem to have continued to impact the singer's life, and now they find themselves in a cycle of addiction and pain, with no hope of escape. The lyrics of the chorus are a repetition of the opening verse, highlighting the singer's despair and feelings of not being able to be saved.
