Avril Lavigne – Head Above Water lyrics

I’ve gotta keep the calm before the storm
I don’t want less, I don’t want more
Must bar the windows and the doors
To keep me safe, to keep me warm
Yeah, my life is war I’m fighting for
A part of sea, can’t reach the shore
And my voice becomes the driving force
I want let this put me over board

God keep my head above water
Don’t let me drown
It gets harder
I’ll meet you there
At the altar
As I fall down to my knees
Don’t let me drown drown drown
Don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me drown

So pull me up from down below
‘Cause I’m underneath the undertow
Come dry me off and hold me close
I need you now, I need you most

God keep my head above water
Don’t let me drown
It gets harder
I’ll meet you there
At the altar
As I fall down to my knees
Don’t let me drown drown drown
Don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me drown
Don’t let me drown drown drown (Keep my head above water)
Don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me drown

And I can’t see in the stormy weather
I can’t seem to keep it all together
And I can’t swim the ocean like this forever
And I can’t breathe

God keep my head above water
I lose my breath at the bottom
Come rescue me, I’ll be waiting
I’m too young to fall asleep

God keep my head above water
Don’t let me drown
It gets harder
I’ll meet you there
At the altar
As I fall down to my knees
Don’t let me drown drown drown
Don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me drown
Don’t let me drown
(And keep my head above water, above water)
Don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me drown
