"I'd Come for You" is the second European single (fourth overall) from Nickelbacks's 2008 album Dark Horse. This was confirmed in January 2009 when the video shoot of the song was announced. The song was written by the band and Mutt Lange. It is a power ballad in the vein of the band's previous hits "Far Away" and "If Everyone Cared." It was released March 23, 2009. "If Today Was Your Last Day" is serving as the second single instead in North America.
Jessa Danielson, Don Broach and Craig Anderson play the three roles in the video. The video was shot in late January, 2009 with long-time collaborator Nigel Dick directing the video. The video was released on March 23rd, 2009, in North America. The video shows a father arriving home to find his daughter on her way out to go on a date with her boyfriend. Later on the boyfriend tries to sexually assault the daughter who makes two frantic calls to her father, one a text message with the same numbers in a photograph of the daughter and the father by a baseball ground. He realises she is in a situation at the baseball ground, therefore he goes looking for her. He arrives in time to pull the young man out of the car and punch him twice, then drives off with her crying in his arms.
"I'd Come for You" experienced chart success prior to its release as a single. Following Dark Horse's release, the song climbed as high as #14 on the U.S. iTunes store, fueling a #44 debut on the Billboard Hot 100. It also debuted the same week at #53 on the Canadian Hot 100.
