'Great songs are hard to find. I fell in love with 'Save Me From Myself' the first time I heard it a year and a half ago. And now, a year and a half later, I still love the hook, the chorus and just the bigness of it. The message is true to my heart: You save me, save me from myself. There is no-one else Id lean on. Save me, you save me from myself. There is no-one else to set me free.
