I was switched off like a light
A fighter with no fight
Staring up at the stars
I'd given into the dark

Burned out like a match
At the low end of the crash
The moon glowed like a scar
How did things go so far

Somehow you saw someone worth saving
You pulled me back into the light

Now if ever I can rescue you,
When you need two arms to fall into
You know exactly where I'll be
Just look for me
Oh look for me

When it seems like you have lost it all
And you feel like you're in free fall
Goin' deep into the blue
I will rescue you

When every promise turns to dust
And there's no one left to trust
When you're punchin at the sky
And you're out of alibies
I know how this feels
When the wounds don't want to heal
But I won't forget your grace
Or the beauty of your face

Somehow you saw someone worth saving
You pulled me back into the light

Now if ever I can rescue you
When you need two arms to fall into
You know exactly where I'll be
Just look for me
Oh look for me

When it seems like you have lost it all
And you feel like you're in free fall
Goin' deep into the blue
I will rescue you

I fell into that hole before
And I, I walked into that slamming door
And I faded away
To where you art in day

Now if ever I can rescue you,
When you need two arms to fall into
You know exactly where I'll be
Just look for me
Oh look for me

When it seems like you have lost it all
And you feel like you're in free fall
Goin' deep into the blue
I will rescue you

    Ive watched degrassi my whole life, and this song is my favorite! The meaning for me is this: i had a bestfriend/boyfriend go into deep depression and he was also bipolar, to this day (even tho we don't talk because of some things that happened) i still dedicate this song to him. And even tho im supposed to hate him, ill always have love for him and care about him, and ill always be there if he needs the help. I told you i would always be there, i have not forgotten you

    Actually ellie had depression and craig was bipolar and they went to group theropy together, ellie was always there for craig but he was never quite there for her, even though she did everything to help him. He develpoed drug problems and she was there for him. He became famous and was touring and ellie sent him books and always kept in contact, until he hurt her when he came home for a show and told her that he loved her, just to get his drugs back. He had written this song and ran into ellie and sang it to her.

    It means that if ever he came rescue her, he'll be there, because he's been there and she helped him.
