  • I've gotta keep the calm before the storm
    I don't want less, I don't want more
    Must bar the windows and the doors
    To keep me safe, to keep me warm

    Yeah, my life is what I'm fighting for
    Can't part the sea, can't reach the shore
    And my voice becomes the driving force
    I won't let this pull me overboard

    God, keep my head above water
    Don't let me drown, it gets harder
    I'll meet you there at the altar
    As I fall down to my knees
    Don't let me drown, drown, drown
    Don't let me, don't let me, don't let me drown

    So pull me up from down below
    'Cause I'm underneath the undertow
    Come dry me off and hold me close
    I need you now, I need you most

    God, keep my head above water
    Don't let me drown, it gets harder
    I'll meet you there at the altar
    As I fall down to my knees
    Don't let me drown, drown, drown
    Don't let me, don't let me, don't let me drown
    Don't let me drown, drown, drown
    Keep my head above water, above water

    And I can't see in the stormy weather
    I can't seem to keep it all together
    And I, I can't swim the ocean like this forever
    And I can't breathe

    God, keep my head above water
    I lose my breath at the bottom
    Come rescue me, I'll be waiting
    I'm too young to fall asleep

    God, keep my head above water
    Don't let me drown, it gets harder
    I'll meet you there at the altar
    As I fall down to my knees

    Don't let me drown
    Don't let me drown (don't let me, don't let me, don't let me drown)
    Don't let me drown (don't let me, don't let me, don't let me drown)
    Keep my head above water, above water Writer/s: Avril Ramona Lavigne, Stephan Moccio, Travis Clark
