Somebody Save Me‘ is the title of the theme song for the TV series ‘Smallville‘.

For those who have not heard of Smallville, it is a tv series chronicling the life and upbringing of Clark Kent before he debuted as the red-caped superhero in blue tights. The series covers his story from the moment he crash-landed on earth to his teenage pre-superman years.

"Somebody save me
	let your warm hands break right through me
Somebody save me
	I don't care how you do it
Just stay, stay
	C'mon, I've been waiting for you"

Smallville’s theme song is sung by (the group) Remy Zero. It has never really risen to household fame level/status, thus an average Smallville fan only gets to be familiar with, at most, 3 lines of the song’s chorus as it is the only portion played in an average episode. I eventually developed a liking to that portion of the song such that everytime the it is played, I always sing along with it. My son would get wide-eyed (and melo-dramatically ask ‘You ok dad?’) if I forget to sing along with it. So, a few days ago, my curiosity got the best of me (or perhaps my laziness level temporarily dropped to a record low) and I finally alloted time to search for the complete song. Not only was I able to hear the whole song but I found a video of the song performed by Remy Zero themselves and with lyrics shown as the song played.

On first hearing it I admit being mildly disappointed probably because I had higher expectations. I thought the other parts of the song did not do justice to the parts played on Smallville. I also thought the vocals is a little too tinny and without much power and timbre behind it. But then there are songs that blow you away at first acquaintance and there are songs that you grow a liking to the more you listen to it. The latter applies to ‘Somebody Save Me‘.

Somebody Save Me Lyrics

Somebody Save Me

I feel my wings have broken in your hands
I feel the words unspoken inside

When they pull you under
And I would give you anything you want
Well all I wanted
All my dreams have fallen down
Crawling around somebody save me
Let your warm hands break right through me
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
I would give you anything you want
Well all I wanted
And all my dreams have fallen down
Crawling around somebody save me
And two warm hands break right through me
Somebody save me
I don’t care how you do it
Just stay, stay
Come on, I’ve been waiting for you

And all my dreams are on the ground

Crawling around somebody save me
And two warm hands break right through me
Somebody save me
I don’t care how you do it
Just save me

I’ve made this whole world shine for you
Just stay, stay
Come on, I’m still waiting for you

Next thing I want to do perhaps is to find a videoke version of this song.
