~Life Preserver~

[Verse 1]

I'm sinking...
but you're staying with me.
I'm thinking...
that this can't truly be.

I'm hoping...
that this ain't just some fling.
I'm dreaming...
of what tomorrow will bring!

[Chorus 1]

You're a life preserver!—
Keepin' me afloat
when the world
sucks me down!

You're a...life preserver!
Always there to
turn my cheek
when I frown.

(Always there to
save me when I
drown...)

[Verse 2]

I was going under...
Thinking there was just no hope for me.
I was gonna surrender...
'Til ya came and swept me off my feet!

My world was darkening.
Oxygen was almost gone...
Sinkin' down downdown.
But then ya came along — !

[Chorus 2]

You're a life preserver!—
Keepin' me afloat
when the world
sucks me down!

You're a...life preserver!
Always there to
turn my cheek
when I frown.

(Always there to
save me when I
drown...)

[Bridge]

Just above the surface,
I am always reaching for you.
Yeah, this is worth it –
You will always see me through!

[Chorus Final]

You're a life preserver...
Keepin' me afloat...

I hope that you know
that I would
never be alive...
without you.
I'm really proud of the sheet music for this one. :icongrin--plz:

I know I categorized this under "romantic", but this can be applied to any scope of relationship. I'm trying something different with my lyrics here, so tell me what you think. :aww:
