Pearl Jam - Save You

  

Lyrics:

Gonna save you fucker....not gonna lose you
Feeling cocky and strong.. can't let you go...
Too important to me

Too important to us... we'd be lost without you
Baby, let yourself fall,... I'm right below you now

And fuck me if I say something you don't wanna hear
And fuck if you only hear what you wanna hear
Fuck me if I care... but I'm not leaving here

You helped me when I was down... I'll help when you're down
Why are you hitting yourself?... c'mon hit me instead

Let's pick up your will... it's grown fat and lazy
I'm sympathetic as well... don't go on me now

And I'm not living this life without you, I'm selfish and clear
And you're not leaving here without me, I don't wanna be without
My best... friend. Wake up, to see you could have it all

Cause there is but you... and something within you
It's taken control... let's beat it, get up let's go!

Oh you're in your own world, let's see the whole world
Let's pick up your soul

And fuck me if I say something you don't wanna hear
And fuck me if you only hear the treble in your head
Please help... me... to help you... help yourself

Help me help yourself... please want me to... please let me to

Help you

The lyrics for "Save You" represent the anger felt by anyone who watches a close friend waste away his or her life.[3] Vocalist Eddie Vedder about the song:

One thing I've learned about addiction in the last few years is that having seen other folk go through it, and really not having done that, with heroin which can grip you that intensely. I didn't have a complete understanding and a lot of times it was easy to come to the conclusion that you place blame on the person or accuse them of weakness or ask, "Why couldn't Kurt [Cobain] keep it together?" There was always that in the back of your mind. So with all the sympathy and empathy you could muster you still felt like, "Wow, there was so much to live for." What I've learned is there really isn't any blame. It has happened to some folks I cared about so much and had it so together, so it really isn't blame thing. I think the song is expressing how badly you want to help.[4]

When asked in an interview about the profanities in the song's lyrics, Vedder stated:

It is a term of endearment. Really, it is, especially when you're a little bit frustrated...It's just something I've experienced a number of times and...It came out quick. I couldn't figure out any other word besides [fucker] that had the same impact. Another potential radio hit. I did have it up pretty loud a few times in traffic and even I felt a little bashful. That and I had a [fucking] mohawk.[3]
