1. I find it too hard to win,         back on the ground again,

D                  A       D   - D                         A           D

    I feel like giving in,        but you're my second wind,

                     G                    Bm

    Don't you ever tire facing all my fires,

                 G                                       A     - - - - - -

    I don't need no one but you right now. So, I say ...

 

  D         Bm                 G                        D

Oh, my friend, you're holding out your hand,

   G                    D                  G

I take it like an oar from the depth.

   D         Bm              G                     D

Hey, Lifesaver, I'm drowning in despair,

                 G                     D                    G

but you're fighting for me right until the end,

                                                                          D

you pull me back to land and save me once again.

2.    You help me wash away,        the insane mistakes I made,

D                    A          D       - D                 A             D

    and I see it in your face,        my only source of grace.

                      G                                  Bm

    No, I don't take for granted, all the time you've wasted,

                  G                      A     - - - - - -

    making sacrifices for a fool.  So, I say ...

       D            Bm         G                 D

+  You lift me higher, you hold the fire,

     G                       D         A            D

    you make me strong enough to stay.

 

       D            Bm         G                 D

    You lift me higher, you hold the fire,

       D           Bm                      G               A

    made up stand tall, but without you I'd fall.
