Quick Review: BTS's ''Save Me'' Saves Me

Saturday, June 04, 2016


BTS's newest release "Save Me" is restoring my faith in what has been a lackluster year for K-pop. 

The song is a kind of a standout. The electronic sound is fresh, longing, far-carrying and almost dreamy. The vocals are emotive, while the rapping balances out their ballad-like quality and provides some variety to the otherwise very melodic tune. The music video is simple, yet the members seem emotionally invested into conveying the song's message and the overall atmosphere and scenery seems fitting for the song. Finally, the impressively energetic choreography that perfectly responds to the rises and falls of the melody brings the video together and makes it the BTS that we know and love (just less with all that swagger bullcrap).



The lyrics: 

I want to breathe, I hate this night
I want to wake up, I hate this dream
I’m trapped inside of myself and I’m dead
Don’t wanna be lonely
Just wanna be yours

Why is it so dark where you’re not here
It’s dangerous how wrecked I am
Save me because I can’t get a grip on myself

Listen to my heartbeat
It calls you whenever it wants to
Because within this pitch black darkness
You are shining so brightly

Give me your hand save me save me
I need your love before I fall, fall
Give me your hand save me save me
I need your love before I fall, fall

Give me your hand save me save me
Give me your hand save me save me

Save me, save me

Today the moon shines brighter
on the blank spot in my memories
It swallowed me, this lunatic,
please save me tonight
(Please save me tonight,
please save me tonight)
Within this childish madness
you will save me tonight

I knew that your salvation
Is a part of my life
and the only helping hand that will embrase my pain
The best of me,
you’re the only thing I have
Please raise your voice
so that I can laugh again
Play on

Listen to my heartbeat,
it calls you whenever it wants to
Because within this pitch black darkness,
you are shining so brightly

Give me your hand save me save me
I need your love before I fall, fall
Give me your hand save me save me
I need your love before I fall, fall

Give me your hand save me save me
Give me your hand save me save me

Thank you for letting me be me
For helping me fly
For giving me wings
For straightening me out
For waking me from being suffocated
For waking me from a dream which was all I was living in
When I think of you the sun comes out
So I gave my sadness to the dog
(Thank you. For being ‘us’)

Give me your hand save me save me
I need your love before I fall, fall
Give me your hand save me save me
I need your love before I fall, fall

(Translation by Color Coded Lyrics)
