There was a time in my life when things didn’t go as well as they do now. I had financial troubles, the house I was living in was decrepit and in a bad neighbourhood, and most of all: I was alone. I had left my boyfriend and was trying to get back on my feet. I was happy with my situation, but they were tough times.

Krypteria

During this time, I found the artist ‘Krypteria.’ They’re a rock band from Germany. Time and time again, I would listen to the album ‘My Fatal Kiss.’ Even at the time, I realised how Emo and dark it was, but I felt attracted to the music nonetheless.
So with the prompt ‘anguish’ and ‘misery’ in mind, I quickly checked if Krypteria had a song with either of those words in it. And they did:

Somebody Save Me
Krypteria

I bare my soul
Stripped on a silver platter
My back to the wall
Blindfolded, tied up, battered

Yearning for someone
Someone to end this misery
But will that someone, anyone
Ever come and rescue me

Somebody save me, I’m close to the edge
Someone to fill me with life, give me dreams I never had
Somebody save me and answer my please
Someone to lift me back up and to put my heart at ease
Somebody help me please

Outcast, alone
Searching but never finding
I’d give my all
For a trace of silver lining

Yearning for someone
Someone to end this misery
But will that someone, anyone
Ever come and rescue me

Somebody save me, I’m close to the edge
Someone to fill me with life, give me dreams I never had
Somebody save me and answer my please
Someone to lift me back up and to put my heart at ease
Somebody help me please

There’s not much left for me to lose
Can anybody heal these wounds?
Someone to start my life anew
Where’s that someone?
Where are you?

Somebody save me, I’m close to the edge
Someone to fill me with life, give me dreams I never had
Somebody save me and answer my please
Someone to lift me back up and to put my heart at ease
Somebody help me please
