With an urgent, careful stare,
And some panic in those eyes
If I see you lying there,
I'll do as was done last time

If you hear a distant sound,
And some footsteps by your side.
When the world comes crashing down
I will find you if you hide.

And if you wish it, wish it now.
If you wish it, wish it loud.
If you want it, say it now.
If you want it, say it loud.

We all make mistakes.
Here's your lifeline.
If you want, I want too
We all make mistakes.
Here's your lifeline.
If you want, I want too

There's a field with a dream.
I watched it grow with whitest light.
I watched us all reach out and lean.
For the strength to touch the sky.

If you hear a distant sound.
And some footsteps by your side.
If you feel like comin' round.
I will take you for a ride.

And if you wish it, wish it now.
If you wish it, wish it loud.
If you want it, say it now.
If you want it, say it loud.

We all make mistakes.
Here's your lifeline.
If you want, I want to.
We all make mistakes.
Here's your lifeline.
If you want, I want too

    For me,it is about that special someone who is in and out of your life be it as it may. Through ups and downs,mistakes made. The one who you could never let go of,and they you. You can reach out for them;they are your lifeline.. Always hoping for another chance to make it right and maybe someday,when you need it most they will be there to say "if you want,i want too"

    My mom sung it (38), i played drums (17), my little brother played violin (15), and my dad provided guitar (38). We played this at my grandfather's funeral.

    Best funeral i've ever been to. Believe.
