Overboard

Album: My World 2.0 (2010)
  • It feels like we've been out at sea, whoa
    So back and forth that's how it seems, whoa
    And when I wanna talk you say to me
    That if it's meant to be it will be, whoa oh no

    So crazy in this thing we call love
    And now that we've got it we just can't give up
    I'm reaching out for you
    Got me out here in the water, and I

    I'm overboard, and I need your love
    Pull me up, I can't swim on my own
    It's too much, feel like I'm drowning without your love
    So throw yourself out to me
    My lifesaver (Lifesaver, oh lifesaver)
    My lifesaver (Lifesaver, oh lifesaver) Whoa

    Never understood you when you'd say, whoa
    Wanted me to meet you halfway, whoa
    Felt like I was doing my part
    You kept thinking you were coming up short
    It's funny how things change cause now I see oh whoa

    So crazy in this thing we call love
    And now that we've got it we just can't give up
    I'm reaching out for ya
    Got me out here in the water, and I

    I'm overboard (overboard)
    And I need your love
    Pull me up (pull me up)
    I can't swim on my own
    It's too much (it's too much)
    Feels like I'm drowning (oh)
    Without your love
    So throw yourself out to me, my lifesaver

    Oh, it's supposed to be some give and take I know
    But you're only taking and not giving anymore
    So what do I do (so what do I do)
    'Cause I still love you
    (I still love you baby)
    And you're the only one who can save me

    Whoa, whoa, whoa, oh

    I'm overboard
    And I need your love
    Pull me up (pull me up)
    I can't swim on my own
    It's too much (it's too much)
    Feels like I'm drowning without your love
    (I'm drowning baby, I'm drowning)
    So throw yourself out to me (I can't swim)
    My lifesaver

    (Lifesaver, oh lifesaver)
    My lifesaver
    It's crazy crazy crazy (Lifesaver, oh lifesaver)
