"Save As Draft" (also known as "S.A.D.") is the title of a song by Katy Perry from her fifth studio album, Witness. The song is the fourth single from the album and was sent to Adult Pop radio on June 26, 2017.[1] The clean edit of the song replaces the word "fucking" with "freakin'" during the bridge.

Background

The song was played for the first time during an exclusive album listening party in Berlin, Germany. Perry explained the concept of the song during the listening party, saying sometimes when you write emails to your ex boyfriend you should just save them as draft. On October 11, 2015 Katy Perry tweeted the phrase "save as draft." Whether it is related to this song or not is unknown.[2]

During an episode of Delilah Rene's podcast, "Conversations with Delilah", Perry described the song as a "cathartic exercise", saying:

"I’ve been in that cycle before in a relationship and it had kind of reignited the relationship, and there’s only so many times you can reignite the relationship or want to or should and sometimes you just need to write it and never send it. It’s just that exercise, that cathartic exercise."[3]

Lyrics

I remember when you used to be my every other thought
But now my calendar's so full, it's easier to move on
Sometimes I swear I pass your SUV on Sunset Blvd.
I don't fuck with change, but lately I've been flipping coins a lot

(Chorus)
I struggle
I juggle
I could just throw a line to you
But I should let sleeping dogs lie 'cause I know better, baby
I write it
Erase it
Repeat it
But what good will it do
To reopen the wound
So I take a deep breath
And I save as draft

You don't have to subtweet me
My number's always been the same
But all's been said and done
Will we ever really close this case
Yeah, I will always be here for you, but I could no longer stay
Still my body goes in shock every time I hear your name

(Chorus)
I struggle
I juggle
I could just throw a line to you
But I should let sleeping dogs lie 'cause I know better, baby
I write it
Erase it
Repeat it
But what good will it do
To reopen the wound
So I take a deep breath
And I save as draft

I've heard you've done some changing
I've been rearranging
Wish that I could know, but I just don't know
Never get that time back
Fear we'd fall in old traps
Why can't we just let go
Staring at a fork in the fucking road

(Chorus)
I struggle
I juggle
I could just throw a line to you
But I should let sleeping dogs lie 'cause I know better, baby
I write it
Erase it
Repeat it
But what good will it do
To reopen the wound
So I take a deep breath
And I save as draft
