Ollie – lifeboat Lyrics

lifeboat Lyrics – Ollie

I’m bad at taking advice
And sometimes admitting I’m wrong
Stubborn is saying it nice
I ain’t so tough, I get sad when you gone
I like it better with you in arms
Sing in the shower, your songs
Wonder if you hear me singing along
Might not be home but this where I belong
And I know you hate when it’s colder outside
I’m always working, I’m tryna provide
I just want you to be happy in life, well—ironic it’s passing me by
Maybe if I would just lift up my head
I would see you right in front my eyes, but
I cannot lift up my head
I had to jump before I learned to fly, and lost all our innocence
Still I can’t look past you
Lay down our differences, it’s something we had too
You know I’d be lost if you went away
Though my love never stops, what I’m tryna say, tryna say that

Lifeboat, you’re my lifeboat
I hope, really I hope that
You’re never gon’ replace me
‘Cause I need you to stay afloat
Lifeboat, you’re my lifeboat
I hope, really I hope that
You’re never gon’ replace me
‘Cause I need you to stay afloat
‘Cause I need you to stay afloat

It’s like, I’m struggling staying afloat
You know how crazy I go?
Been trying my best through the bad times
Thought I should write you this note
Tell you, my love, I would never let go
Without you, I’m losing my hope
I was so stuck, I was out deep end when you suddenly threw me a rope
You picked me up and put me in the stars
I’m tryna give you back all of my heart
I just want you to know I’m right here
Same place I’ve been from the start
This ain’t just writin’ or playin’ a part
This is me saying, “I hope”
Even when everything hard, you always helping me cope
‘Cause love far from bulletproof, it’s not worth us fightin’
You always pullin’ through when I gave up tryin’
I can’t even hold this back, I need you bad, like
Some days I go overboard, but you know that, yeah you know that

Lifeboat, you’re my lifeboat
I hope, really I hope that
You’re never gon’ replace me
‘Cause I need you to stay afloat
Lifeboat, you’re my lifeboat
I hope, really I hope that
You’re never gon’ replace me
‘Cause I need you to stay afloat
‘Cause I need you to stay afloat
