Save You

Album: Simple Plan (2008)
  • This song is about a battle with cancer, which Pierre Bouvier's brother fought. The frontman told theywillrockyou.com: "It's about my brother, he went through a two year battle with cancer and he went through numerous chemotherapy sessions and went through a bone marrow transplant and it was really tough time for my family and I. Just going through that and seeing someone so close to you go through that kind of stuff is very difficult. The song is about how I felt powerless in that whole situation. Now he's better, which is great news, but that is probably the song that I feel most connected to."
