Vedder Tuesday Ⅸ: Save You

I had a hard time choosing this week.  Because of the events of the last week, I thought anything I chose could have subtext read into it.  If you don't get that, that's fine, and if you want subtext for this, go ahead, it's probably there -- but I'll put this out as a great set of lyrics.

I'm gonna save you, fucker; I'm 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, fuck me
And fuck me 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?  Come on, hit me instead!
Let's pick up your will, it's grown fat and lazy
I'm sympathetic as well, but 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, 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, fuck me
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!
