Listen to the full songs for work playlist.

This week’s tune is about having unconditional support from someone in your life that will be there if you ever need help or “rescuing.”

A Song About Unconditional Support

 

“Rescue Me” – OneRepublic

OneRepublic is an American pop rock band from Colorado Springs, Colorado. It consists of lead vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Ryan Tedder, guitarist Zach Filkins, guitarist Drew Brown, bassist and cellist Brent Kutzle, drummer Eddie Fisher, and keyboardist Brian Willett. They have had many hit songs since the start of their band in 2002, including the Grammy Nominated song “Apologize.” The band released the single “Rescue Me” in 2019. The song is about unconditional support and reminisces on a past relationship. The song questions over and over if they will be there for each other when needed regardless of how the relationship ended? It makes the listener think about their own relationships and wonder if they have someone who will also “rescue” them.

“…When I need your love, if I need your help?”

Lyrics

Would you rescue me? Would you get my back?
Would you take my call when I start to crack?
Would you rescue me? Uh
Would you rescue me?
Would you rescue me when I’m by myself?
When I need your love, if I need your help
Would you rescue me? Uh
Would you rescue me?
We don’t talk much, not anymore
Broken bottles and slammin’ doors
But we still care about each other
Say we care about each other
I know life took us far away
But I still dream ’bout the good old days
When we took care of each other
We were livin’ for each other
But I start to wonder, wonder
If I’m slipping under, under
Would you rescue me? Would you get my back?
Would you take my call when I start to crack?
Would you rescue me? Uh
Would you rescue me?
Would you rescue me when I’m by myself?
When I need your love, if I need your help
Would you rescue me? Uh
Would you rescue me?
Would you rescue me? Would you get my back?
Would you take my call when I start to crack?
Would you rescue me? Uh
Would you rescue me? (Would you rescue me?)
Would you rescue me while I’m by myself?
When I need your love, if I need your help
Would you rescue me? Uh
Would you rescue me?
Yeah, I miss all the times we had
Can’t forget what you can’t get back
And you can’t find it in another
Man, time, it ain’t your lover
I don’t care what you thought before
I’ll be there anytime you call
Don’t you ever call another
No need to call another
And I start to wonder, wonder
If I’m slipping under, under
Would you rescue me? Would you get my back?
Would you take my call when I start to crack?
Would you rescue me? Uh
Would you rescue me? (Would you rescue me?)
Would you rescue me while I’m by myself?
When I need your love, if I need your help
Would you rescue me? Uh
Would you rescue me? Yeah
Would you rescue me?
Oh, rescue me (would you rescue me?)
Would you rescue me?
Oh, rescue me
Would you rescue me? Would you get my back?
Would you take my call when I start to crack?
Would you rescue me? Uh
Would you rescue me?
Would you rescue me when I’m by myself?
When I need your love, if I need your help
Would you rescue me? Uh
Would you rescue me?
