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

    MemoryI really feel I can connect with this song... my best friend of 10 years used to be a devoted believe in Christ along beside me, but about a year ago he started drifting away... instead of worshiping the God of this world he instead worships the world and has turned his back for partying.

    The noose and neck part reminds me of his addiction to smoking whatever he can get his hands on.. he has many respiratory problems and the cigarettes and all the smoke is killing him. He doesn't want help, and honestly I hate who he is now but I can't let go.

    After just hearing this song, it reminds me that I can't take this burden alone... it's all in Gods hands and all I can do is love him and show him Gods love and pray and hope that he comes back, not just for my sake but for his.

    All I know right now is I want my friend back......
