If I were to sink
Into the deep blue
Not knowing how life came to be
So complicated, so hard
Would you rescue me?
Would you be my lifeguard?
I know I would drown
Just to save you
Would you do the same for me?
Is it too much to ask?
I so want to believe
That you are up to the task
I can't believe I have to ask
Are you up to the task?
Because I'm not
If this is to be all for naught
That's right, you heard what I said
I just can't seem to bear the thought
Of getting in over my head
It's a fight that can no longer be fought
Leaving me consumed with suffocating dread
Where do we go from here?
What's in store for us?
What's comes next after this?
Have we come together to the end of the pier
Only for you to get on a bus after sharing
A final kiss?
I wish I had the courage to take the plunge
And soak in all your love like a coral sponge
If only I knew that after I made my dive
You would be there to rescue me
Keep me afloat
And breathe me alive
