Bouncing like a buoy
Drifting on the water
Singletary solitute man begins to holler
He says "man overboard"
I jump ship on the trip
It was a worldwide cruise
Trading riches for some fishes
I've got nothing more to lose
I'm a man overboard
I'm a man overboard


If it wasn't for the lighthouse
Where would my life be?
On a trip bound for nowhere
On a unforgiving sea
I thank God for the light


Legs and arms are burning
I swim against the tide
Keep an eye above the water
So I can see the light
I'm a man overboard
I dream about the saviour
I dream about the shore
I feel the sand
You take my hand
And we will walk forevermore
I'm a man overboard
I'm a man overboard


If it wasn't for the lighthouse
Where would my life be?
On a ship bound for nowhere
On an unforgiving sea
I thank God
If it wasn't for the lighthouse
Where would my life be?
On a ship bound for nowhere
On an unforgiving sea
I thank God for the lighthouse
I thank God for the light.
