lifeline lyrics – mat kearney

you’re watching everything you ever held on to
slip away from you
and all you’re running from
well it’s catching up to you

got you looking for a lifeline
swimming in the high tide
waiting for the daylight
to bring you home

the world is too big to never ask why
the answers don’t fall straight out of the sky
i’m fighting to live and feel alive
but i can’t feel a thing without you by my side
send me out a lifeline

you’re watching everyone you ever belonged to
walk away from you
maybe all along you’ve been running from the truth

got you looking for a lifeline
you’re swimming in the high tide
waiting for the daylight
to bring you home

the world is too big to never ask why
the answers don’t fall straight out of the sky
i’m fighting to live and feel alive
but i can’t feel a thing without you by my side
send me out a lifeline

there’s nothing i would change, i’d give it all away
for you again and again and over again
everything i own is in your control

i’m looking for a lifeline
swimming in the high tide
waiting for the daylight
to bring me home

the world is too big to never ask why
the answers don’t fall straight out of the sky
i’m fighting to live and feel alive
but i can’t feel a thing without you by my side
send me out a lifeline
won’t you send me out a lifeline
send me out a lifeline
