Bouncing like a buoy
Drifting on the water
Singletary solitude man begins to holler
He says, "Man overboard"
I jump ship on the trip
It was a worldwide cruise
Trading riches for some fishes
I've got nothing more to lose
I'm a man overboard
I'm a man overboard

If it wasn't for the lighthouse
Where would my life be
On a ship bound for no where
On an unforgiving sea
I thank God
For the light

Legs and arms are burning
Swim against the tide
Keep an eye above the water
So I can see the light
I'm a man overboard
I dream about the Savior
I dream about the shore
I feel the sand
You take my hand
And we will walk forevermore
I'm a man overboard
I'm a man overboard

If it wasn't for the lighthouse
Where would my life be
On a ship bound for nowhere
On an unforgiving sea
I thank God for the lighthouse
I thank God for the light

If it wasn't for the lighthouse
Where would my life be
On a ship bound for nowhere
On an unforgiving sea
I thank God
If it wasn't for the lighthouse
Where would my life be
On a ship bound for nowhere on an unforgiving sea
I thank God for the lighthouse
I thank God for the light
