Can't Save You From Drowning


You called me up,
at one at night,
you couldn't tell
between black and white
I play your shrink
Am on the call
And now am giving up
Oh! This won’t work at all.

No, I can't save you from drowning
I barely swim myself
No, I can't save you from drowning
I barely swim myself
Am just hanging on.


I assure you,
all is gonna be fine.
My own life,
am just walking the line
you assure me,
all is gonna go well
but we both know
only time will tell.

Just hang on,
you'll learn.
Just live on,
you'll learn.
You won't need help swimming anymore.

No, I can't save you from drowning
I barely swim myself
No, I can't save you from drowning
I barely swim myself
Am just hanging on.

We'll survive.
