You said you’d leave me 100 times
But still you’re hurting this heart of mine
I’ll believe you’re going when I hear you say goodbye and watch you walk away
I know the reason you never go
You know too well you’ll end up alone
I keep on playing cuz I never wanna have to say I lost the game
What kind of empty life did we choose to live,
When I’m scared to take and you’re just as scared to give?

Somebody throw me a LIFELINE, pull me in
LIFELINE, sink or swim
LIFELINE, I’m going under again

You’ve said it so many times before
When one of us can’t take anymore
Still we continue to discuss till all that we can feel is pain
You’d think that we would have learned by now
How to make it work out somehow
Here we are trapped on a wheel that keeps spinning ‘round again
I think of the empty words that we always say
And I’m so afraid that I’ll never get away

You leave the room and I feel relief
No more anger and no more grief
Why can’t I let myself me strong
How can I carry on this way?
Sometimes I feel like my hands are tied
And weighted down with this awful pride
I need to leave but I’ll have failed if I do anything but stay
I keep holding out a hope someone sees my sign
But one more breath and I’m down for the final time

Somebody throw me a LIFELINE, pull me in
LIFELINE, sink or swim
LIFELINE, I’m going under again
