I'm drowning not waving (3x)
This aint stupid girl talk
So don't try to tell me so
I don't want to be rejected
Cause i let my feelings show
I'm just trying to reach you
Cause i'm in need of your vow
Time won't be an answer
Let's talk about it here and now
Just try to be open hearted
We'll figure this out somehow
I'm just trying to reach you
Cause i'm in over my head
(chorus)
I'm drowningnot waving (2x)
Not bending i am breaking
It's an easy mistake to make
I'm crying not laughing
I'm falling not faking
I'm drowning not just waving
Won't you be my life guard
This aint stupid girl talk
So don't try to shrug it off
You can't just hold back the changes
Nothing stays the way it was
What i feel is an ocean
And i'm in over my head
(chorus)
I see another version of me
Whose only a day away
Stronger, alittle wiser i guess
Someone who feels okay
But right now i'm drowning not waving
I'm falling not faking
I'm drowning not just waving
Won't you be my life guard
(chorus)
Drowning not waving
I'm falling not faking
I'm drowning not just waving
Won't you be my life guard
Ohhh
I'm drowning not just waving
It's an easy mistake to make
No more stupid girl talk
It's an easy mistake to make
So don't try to tell me so
I'm drowning not just waving
Won't you be my life guard
