SAVE MY LOVE

Official studio rehearsal version


Tonight we'll ride these silver streets, nothing's left behind
Tonight I'll park out on that hill, wait until they find me
Clouds from my machine, ???
???

So turn up the radio 'cause I love you the most
We're linking up the airwaves, we're traveling coast to coast
And if I find ???, I'm gonna give it all to you
All my ???

Hold me in your arms and we will run away
Tell me with your charms and we will run away, oh run away
Woah-ohhh

At night I hold my hands up and I see ???
??? alright
??? stay until they find
And if I've had enough, we'll hold it in our hands
??? hearts will be the same
??? hearts will be the same
Whoa-whoa-whoa ohhh-whoa-whoa-alright
Yeah yeahhh


Info

Video footage of Springsteen rehearsing SAVE MY LOVE with the band at his 1976-1981 residence on Telegraph Hill Road in Holmdel Township, NJ, in Autumn 1976 was released on the Thrill Hill Vault 1976-1978 DVD in 2010 (read below). The above lyrics are for that rehearsal version of the song. At this stage, SAVE MY LOVE was still a work-in-progress, which justifies why Springsteen wrote that the song was written in 1977 in his Thoughts On The Promise And Darkness On The Edge Of Town essay which accompanied The Promise: The Darkness On The Edge Of Town Story box set.

Thrill Hill Vault 1976-1978 consists of an about-an-hour's worth of home rehearsals footage from 1976, studio sessions footage from 1978, and live in concert footage from 1978. It was produced and edited by Emmy- and Grammy-winner Thom Zimny and the audio for the live 1978 footage and some of the 1978 studio footage was mixed by Bob Ludwig. Zimny re-edited the 1978 concert footage making use of previously unseen camera angles. The home rehearsals and studio session footage was originally produced and directed by Barry Rebo, while the live in concert footage was originally directed by Arnold Levine.
