My Life Guard


I'm swimming in a pool
That is 12ft deep and 8ft wide
I lose all sensation
And i start going down
I need a life guard

I'm 6ft down
And I try to swim to safety
And all the walls are closing in on me
I can't hold my breath any longer
I need a life guard.

I'm 11ft down
And almost done for
The walls are nearly on top of me
And just before I hit bottom
Came my life guard.
