"Anchor" as written by and Geoffrey Aaron/varenkamp Hunker....
You said, “Open your eyes.” and,
I said I don’t like surprises.
You said, “Surprise, you’re up to your knees in the water and don’t have a life vest.”
I know, I know, I know, but don’t worry,
‘Cause I’ve got it figured out.

You said, “Jump in the boat, man.”
I said no; you reach your hand.
You said, “The storms that will come will be more than enough and alone you cannot win.
You know, you know, without hope,
You’ll only sink not swim.”

And the current here is stronger now, than I remember.
And I’m crying for you to help.
Please save me.

When I feel like I am drifting away,
Sinking down, the sails aren’t shipping today,
I’m about to lose my way,
You anchor, anchor me down.
Looking out, the skies are turning to gray,
All around the tide is pulling away,
Just about to lose my way,
You anchor, anchor me down.

You said, “Whatever happens,
Don’t get caught in the rapids.
Hold on.” I’m over the edge and I’m reaching for help ‘cause I’m paddling the deep end.
I know, I know, I know what you said:
That I’m in over my head.

You said I’m not alone here.
I said throw me a rope and,
I’ve had more than enough of the rain and the cold and I wanna give up and,
I know, I know, I know without hope,
I’ll only sink not swim.

And the current here is stronger now, than I remember.
And I’m crying for you to help.
Please save me.

When I feel like I am drifting away,
Sinking down, the sails aren’t shipping today,
I’m about to lose my way,
You anchor, anchor me down.
Looking out, the skies are turning to gray,
All around the tide is pulling away,
Just about to lose my way,
You anchor, anchor me down.

And the current is stronger now, than I remember.
When I cry for you to help,
You save me.

And the current is stronger now, than I remember.
And I’m crying out for you to help.
And you save me.

When I feel like I am drifting away,
Sinking down, the sails aren’t shipping today,
I’m about to lose my way,
You anchor, anchor me down.
Looking out, the skies are turning to gray,
All around the tide is pulling away,
Just about to lose my way,
You anchor, anchor me down.
