When I'm lost out at sea
And I think I'm going to sink
I look for your light to guide me
You are my lighthouse.

When the sky is cloudy, dark, and gray
And it feels like it will never stop raining
I lift my face to the sky and see rays of light
You are my sun.

When I'm swimming in the ocean
And I start to drown
I look up and see you break through the surface
You are my lifeguard.

When I'm locked in a dark room
And I start to lose my mind
I open my tightly closed eyes and see hope
You are my light.

Everytime I feel alone or scared
I think of you
You are my happy place and thought
My rock and anchor
