This ain’t stupid girl talk
So don’t try and tell me so
I don’t want to be rejected
Cos I let my feelings show

I’m just trying to reach you
Cos I’m in need of you now

Time won’t be an answer
Let’s talk about it here and now
Just try to be openhearted
We’ll figure this out somehow

I’m just trying to reach you
Cos I’m in over my head

CHORUS
I’m drowning, not waving
I’m drowning, not waving
Not bending, I am breaking
It’s an easy mistake to make
I’m crying, not laughing
I’m falling, not faking
I’m drowning not just waving
Won’t you be my lifeguard

This ain’t stupid girl talk
So don’t try and shrugg it off
You can’t just hold back the changes
Nothing stays the way it was

What I feel is an ocean
And I’m in over my head

CHORUS
I’m drowning, not waving
I’m drowning, not waving
Not bending, I am breaking
It’s an easy mistake to make
I’m crying, not laughing
I’m falling, not faking
I’m drowning not just waving
Won’t you be my lifeguard

I see another version of me
Who’s only a day away
Stronger, a little wiser I guess
Someone who feels OK

But right now
I’m drowning, not waving
I’m falling, not faking
I’m drowning not just waving
Won’t you be lifeguard
