Justin Bieber – Overboard lyrics

(Jessica)
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 is 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
Feels like I'm drowning without your love
So throw yourself out to me
My lifesaver
(Lifesaver, oh lifesaver)
My lifesaver
(Lifesaver, oh lifesaver)
Whoa

(Justin)
I 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 is 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 (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 (ohh)
Without your love
So throw yourself out to me
My lifesaver

(Justin & Jessica)
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
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)
Lifesaver oh
(Lifesaver, oh lifesaver)
My lifesaver
(Lifesaver, oh lifesaver)

Yeah

    I think the song is about a girl and a boy who have been having problems in there relationship and have been fighting alot. They both feel like the other isn't making an effort in the relationship. They both love eachother and can't live without there love but they feel so alone in the relationship so they want the other one to show them that they really love them by saving the relationsip. By saving the relationship there saving them. Because they can't live without the other ones love.

    My favorite song by him, love the beginning tune. Also I love this song because it can really relate to any struggle in a relation ship, break ups, fighting, moving, long distance, anything not just one particular issue. It's about realizing how much you really need the person. I know thins cause it relates to me, I thought I wouldn't miss him but now I realize I don't just want him, I need him.

    This song is awesome it brings tears to my eyes thinking of past experiences. Sometimes when you love somebody so much and they leave you or somthing happens to them it feels like your drowning because it's so hard to live life without them. All you can think about is getting them back so you can live your life again. Thank you justin! This song is an encouragement for me and I hope for many more.

    The reason why I like this song is because of my break-up. I feel like I'm drowning and I feel overboard by pain that only he can help save me from me. "i can't swim on my own" is how I feel right now. I love the metaphor behind all this and how it fits well in my life. Thank you for putting my feelings in such a beautiful song!

    A touching romantic look at a young boy's feeling about love. Ah young love. So special so eternal how can anyone not love it? I really appreciate the lifesaver metaphor. You know. Drowning. Boat. Lifesaver cool huh? How did they think of that? Sometimes I feel like I am drowning and need a lifesaver maybe this song is about that feeling? I think it would be better if someone played an instrument in the band. I get tired of the drum machine and young kid's voice. Is it me or do the word just repeat? Wow that was great.
