Words can't describe
All they do is get in the way
Of what I'm feelin' inside
Either way I'm gonna say

When my thoughts wander
The first place they go is to you
And when my heart skips a beat
I blame you, it's what I do

When I'm cryin' tears of sorrow
I wish you'd push them away
But you're cleanin' up hers
Now I'm drownin' in my pain

You swoop in and save me
Before i draw my last breath of air
You are my Lifeguard
A little late, but always there.
