The song definitely rings a chord with many of us who have faced such internal struggles and challenges. The melody is soft and draws influences from both classical and gospel. The tune makes crafty use of the piano and some invigorating synth sounds. Save Me From Myself expresses an inspirational quality found in the track’s momentum.
