Remy Zero - Save Me (Man of Steel Video Mix)

Save Me is a song by rock band Remy Zero that is used as the theme song for the television show Smallville.

The song has a soaring anthemic chorus, making it a natural choice for the superhero themed show. Lyrics from the clip used as the theme: "Somebody save me/Let your warm hands break right through . . . Come on, I've been waiting for you" echo the issues presented in many Smallville episodes.

The song was featured as the opening song on the Smallville compilation CD: Smallville: The Talon Mix (2003). The Season One finale, titled Tempest, features Remy Zero appearing at a high school dance and performed "Save Me" and "Perfect Memory".

Lyrics

Remy Zero

Somebody save me
Let your warm hands break right through
Somebody save me
Don't care how you do it
Just stay, stay, come on
I've been waiting for you
I've made this whole world shine for you
Just stay, stay, come on

Full Lyrics

The lyrics for the full song are:

I feel my wings have broken in your hands
I feel the words unspoken inside
And they pull you under
And I will give you anything you want, but know
You were all I wanted
And all my dreams have fallen down
Crawling around
Somebody save me
Let your warm hands break right through
Somebody save me
I don't care how you do it
Just stay, stay, come on
I've been waiting for you
I see the world has folded in your heart
I feel the waves crash down inside
And they pull me under
And I will give you anything you want, but know
You were all I wanted
And all my dreams have fallen down
Crawling around
Somebody save me
Let your warm hands break right through
Somebody save me
I don't care how you do it
Just stay, stay, come on
I've been waiting for you
All my dreams are on the ground
Crawling around
Somebody save me
Let your warm hands break right through
Somebody save me
Don't care how you do it
Just stay here with me
I made this whole world shine for you
Just stay, stay, come on.
I'm still waiting for you
