I watched you float away on a wave of want and misery
Now, I gotta find you
I watched you float away on whatever caught your eye
Now I gotta find you
'Cause I've got to keep your head above the water
While the current pulls me under

And I will hang my life in the space between the noose and your neck
And 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
(Nothing, Nothing)
But I know it's not you, my dear,
I know it's not you
I know it's not you, my dear,
It's the nothing that kills

I can't save you
Control is something out of mine
No, I can't save you
Control is something out of my control

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
I know it's not you, my dear,
It's the nothing that kills
Nothing

I can't save you, but I will love you
No, I can't save you
I'd like to think that this is love
Lost in second chances without end
And this is romance,
And this is romance

    Though this whole song is obviously about a girl
    the last three lines remind me totally of Gods love. and no matter how many times we mess up, he will always take us back.
