Savin' Me opens with a man in a trenchcoat wandering near a street corner. He sees a young man talking on a cell phone about to get hit by a bus, and pulls him back just in the nick of time, and walks away. The young man starts staring at other people as the song begins.
Eventually, the viewer sees that the young man sees glowing numbers counting down above the heads of everyone around him; to everyone else, he appears to be crazy. He is baffled by the timers, until he sees an elderly woman being brought out on a stretcher; when the timer above her head reaches zero, she dies. He also sees that he cannot see the timer above his own head, and apparently realizes that he needs to save someone just as he himself was saved. He soon spots a business woman about to enter her car, and sees her timer rapidly dwindle much faster than it should, dropping from the millions to the single digits in a matter of seconds. He pulls her out of the way just before her car is crushed by a statue in a crate. The young man then walks away just as the man who had saved him did, leaving the businesswoman astonished as she now sees the timers. The young man then leaves, again talking on a cell phone.
The band is in an apartment as Chad Kroeger and Ryan Peake sing on camera and the other band members are staring at the camera or into space.
