So…just out of nowhere, huh, BTS?

After doing live performances of the song on several shows since the release of the special edition version of their two EPs, BTS decided to give their fans a performance video of our favorite new track from the set, Save Me, without any kind of warning.

The track, as we said in our review of the album, is pure poppy goodness.  The vocals are some of the best the BTS has ever delivered and the lyrics, despite being about wanting to be saved from the abyss of sadness that comes from a breakup (or asking their fans to keep them from fading into obscurity as they move through their careers), has a very upbeat feel to it thanks to the synth and pulsing beat.

The simplicity of the visual is what really won us over on this, though.  Having the members just dancing out in a field, looking like they’re filming a L’Oreal commercial, and just giving their all to the dance steps was a great idea.  It’s fanservice of the best kind; sheer performance.

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
