“Rescue Me” by OneRepublic

The premise of OneRepublic’s “Rescue Me” is the singer reminiscing on the good times he and his ex-girlfriend shared in their now-defunct romance. Indeed he very much desires to take things back to the old days when they “care(d) about each other” through reestablishing a romantic relationship with her. 

This becomes apparent not only by his persistent questioning of whether or not he can rely on her support. Or as he puts it, would she be there to “rescue” him if such was required? But also at the end of the second verse we see that he tells her to “call” him and not to “ever call another”, strongly implying that he wants to retain her as his shorty. 

However, these feelings do not come without their doubts. Yet at the end of the day, through repeated questioning of her present-day commitment to him and other things said throughout the track, it is beyond clear that he is still deeply in love with his ex-girlfriend. But what about his girlfriend? Does she feel the same way about him? The answer to this question isn’t made clear in the song.
