I will hold your head above the water
while the current pulls me under
as long as you have breath, my dear,
I will dance with death
and I will hang my life in the space between
the noose and your neck
I won’t let you die just yet
I will love you even when you won’t let me
and you will kill me by doing nothing
but I know it’s not you, my dear, I know it’s not you
it’s the nothing that kills
I can’t save you
control is something out of mine
I can’t save you
control is something out of my control
I can’t save you but I will love you
no, I can’t save you but I will love you
I like to think that this is love
lost in second chances without end
this is romance

    General Commentamazing song... I think it might be about Christ and his unconditional love for mankind. It could also be about selflessly loving someone who doesn't love you back.
