Sheeran, Ed - Save Myself Lyrics




I gave all my oxygen to people that could breathe
I gave away my money and now we don't even speak
I drove miles and miles but would you do the same for me
Oh, honestly?

Offered up my shoulder just for you to cry upon
Gave you constant shelter and a bed to keep you warm
They gave me the heartache and in return I gave a song
It goes on and on

Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
And all the ones that love me, they just left me on the shelf, no farewell
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain
Cause human beings are destined to radiate or drain
What line do we stand upon cause from here it looks the same?
And only scars remain

Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
I drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
And all the ones that love me, they just left me on the shelf, no farewell
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

But if I don't then I'll go back to where I'm rescuing a stranger
Just because they needed saving, just like that
Oh I'm here again, between the devil and the danger
But I guess it's just my nature
My dad was wrong, cause I'm not like my mum
Cause she'd just smile and I'm complaining in a song, but it helps
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself

Life can get you down so I just numb the way it feels
Or drown it with a drink and out of date prescription pills
And all the ones that love me, they just left me on the shelf, no farewell
So before I save someone else, I've got to save myself
And before I blame someone else, I've got to save myself
And before I love someone else, I've got to love myself

Sheeran, Ed Save Myself Comments
  1. Ismat Lifo

    Selfcare might be pampering yourself and having a warm bath. But trust me the most heartwrecking and worthwhile is saving yourself. Before saving someone else.

  2. Lauren Li

  3. Ischi Bert

    The earth is beautiful but not the people around it

  13. Curse Heart

    I cant believe this song is 2 years old, it feels like it was only 6 months ago that this album released. Either way, it keeps me coming back constantly.

  14. Ricky911

  17. Chronade NALLYWAYS

    So true! Even Jesus Christ said the exact same thing when He said, "... why do you look at the tiny spot in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the tiny spot from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the tiny spot from your brother’s eye." — Matthew 7 verse 3 to 5

  18. Maria Gabriela Rodriguez

    This song speaks to me in so many ways, and applies at different points to different people that have been in my life, I totally relate.

  41. Lawrenz Singal

    there’s “pathetic” in the word “empathetic”.

    *this is not the my interpretation of the song.

    raenman

    This is some 14-year-old-girl-who-finds-meaning-in-billie-eilish-songs level dumb

  47. Niclas Landgren

    I've saved so many. But now I'm lonelier than ever. A sad part of life, put into words in this beautiful song.

  48. Lahly Bird

    This reminds me of why I fell in love with Ed Sheeran in the first place.

    If we all save ourselves first then there will be a lot less people needing saving. And then we can start helping each other and it will stop being so overwhelming

  51. KevPlayzGames

    God Bless to all those brave souls that fought for us in World war I And World war II ;(

  65. OSK 830

    Everyone sets their own expectations for you. Trust me, I know how it feels. To act like someone you're not, to trap yourself and not live your life for yourself. Everyone thought of me as something I wasn't, and I was too afraid to disappoint. I didn't know what to do. I did everything for everyone, only to get hurt by the truth in the end. YOU ARE WORTH SOMETHING. Self-love is important, no matter how you see it. YOU ARE IMPORTANT. Don't be afraid to love yourself for who you really are.
