lyrics

LIFELINE
© Susan R L Turner 2014

I saw her crying her tears into the river
I saw her swimming in those tears
I called out
Be careful or you'll surely drown
I said wait there and I will save you

I saw her calling out
Waving from the ocean
I said
If you had only held on to my hand
She said
I don't want to be saved
I want to go swimming in the ocean
And if I get taken by a shark
Then that must be my fate
I said wait

I will save you
I said wait
I will save you

I'll be your lifeline
Hold on to me
I'll be your lifeline
And save you from the sea
I'll be your lifeline
Hold on to me
I'll be your lifeline
And save you from the sea
I'll be your lifeline
And save you from the sea

Now she was the type of girl who had
A fatalistic streak
She left you chewing on your fingernails
And hanging on the edge of your seat
You could expect the unexpected
And forget the introspective
The future she neglected
For the moment she did seek
Life is cheap

But I will save you
Life is cheap
But I will save you
