Lyrics

How can I save a drowning man
Who doesn’t want to be saved?

How can I keep my head up high
When the waves around me rage?

I reach out my hand but you won’t take it 

I say I’ll drown too but I can’t fake it

       CHORUS

       No, I want to live, feel the sun on my skin

       My heart is still beating, I want more

       I’m saving myself this time

       And heading for shore 

It nearly kills me now to leave
I’ll surely die if I don’t
You’d let me sacrifice myself
But this time I won’t

I reach out my hand but you won’t take it

I say I’ll drown too but I can’t fake it

       CHORUS 

No argument, no farewell kiss

No pleading, no tearful goodbye

I never thought we’d end like this

You turn away, and so do I

       CHORUS 

       Heading for shore

       Heading for shore
