Covert Affairs Theme Song

2010-present

I had better get a head start on this.

So, Covert Affairs is a new series on the USA Network starring Piper Perabo. Nice. I’m about three episodes in—I started just the other day via suggestion—and yes it does have a theme song and an opening sequence.

The sequence, I have to say, looks “un-sleek.” The animated sequence is quite, no pun intended, cartoon-ish. Good show (so far) though. And nice theme song.

The song is entitled “Can You Save Me”. It is by the band Power—an indie/pop band based in Detroit. Not much information about the band yet except that they used to be called Apple Trees & Tangerines. Here is their Facebook page. I have not seen any public release of “Can You Save Me”. Will update this post once it becomes available.

For now, below is the full version of the song.

Here are the complete lyrics.

Covert Affairs Theme Song

When I collapse, will you forget?
When I’m dead and gone, will you regret?
All of the constant, mocking bitter slang
And pokes when you were so upset
When you grabbed your keys, said you were gone
Helped myself out, passed the gun
And bombed my friends and family I did well
It’s just my choices
They were wrong
They were wrong,
They were wrong,
They were wrong,
They were wrong, wrong, wrong

Can you save me?
From this nothing I’ve become
It’s just something that I’ve done
Never meant to cause you worry
Don’t you blame me
For this nothing I’ve become
It’s just something that I’ve done
Never meant to show you my mistakes

When “us” collapse, break bonds, when you forget
All the months we spent on loneliness
Long nights, short days with conversation
That’s nothing more than arguments
I’d fix this if I could
I’d change this… you know I would
It’s been a long time coming
A long time baby
Say that you misunderstood

Can you save me?
From this nothing I’ve become
It’s just something that I’ve done
Never meant to cause you worry
Don’t you blame me
For this nothing I’ve become
It’s just something that I’ve done
Never meant to show you my mistakes

I don’t know, I don’t know
I don’t know where I am heading
All I can tell is that you’re gone!
All I know,
All I know I’ve become a disappointment
Sorry if I’m always wrong!

All your perspectives stand
I’m not the same creature that I was back then
A slight touch hitting on its mass
I’m never coming back
Never going back there again

Can you save me?
Can you save me?

Can you save me?
From this nothing I’ve become
It’s just something that I’ve done
Never meant to cause you worry
Don’t you blame me
For this nothing I’ve become
It’s just something that I’ve done
Never meant to show you my mistakes

And below is the official intro sequence. The lyrics are just the last few lines of the chorus.

Covert Affairs season 2 ~ intro

I just have to add though, in the pilot, as always, they did not show the intro sequence. The titles were set atop the skydiving sequence. I thought at that time it was the theme song (which could have been way better). The song is “Dog Days Are Over” by Florence and the Machine—the recording name of English solo artist Florence Welch.

Below is the song.
