Lifeboat
Paul Williams

On the times that I'm unhappy
With the kind of life that I lead
When my voice amounts to nothing
But another mouth to feed
When the situation's hopeless
And the whole world's let me down
When I'm sinking fast
And thinking
I'm gonna drown

Your love's like a lifeboat
Pickin' me up from a stormy sea
Your love's like a lifeboat
Always on time
Always room for me
You're good for me
You're my life
You are the wind in my sales
You are the truth to my tales
You're good for me

On the rainy side or my life
When the road is rocky and rough
When I give my best and then some
And I'm told it's not enough
When my spirit's almost broken
And I've lost the will to bend
When I'm long on worry
Short on money and friend

Your love's like a lifeboat
Pickin' me up from a stormy sea
Your love's like a lifeboat
Always on time
Always room for me
You're good for me
You're my life
You are the wind in my sails
You are the truth in my tales
You're good for me
