Lyrics
Verse 1
Some friends are good for - a couple of laughs
Lots of good times - not built to last
Sometimes I need - a whole lot more
A circle of friends - who'll bleed for me

Verse 2
Been together - through thick & thin
Seen the glory - & seen the sin
On the horizon - cloudy skies arise'n
Into troubled waters - we all go

Chorus
A lonely sailor - out at sea
I need a true friend - next to me
A wild wave has - hit the bow
I need you - In my lifeboat now!

VERSE 3
The day has come - to call on you
Let's row and bail - as a single crew
Throw me a line... - as the ocean swells
And we'll get through - this living Hell.
VERSE 4
Dangers of the deep - show jagged teeth
Rocks tearn' - from beneath
The tide's a rising - bent on surviving
We ride this dragon - to the end

Chorus
A lonely sailor - out at sea
I need a true friend - next to me
A wild wave has - hit the bow
I need you - In my lifeboat now!
I need you - In my lifeboat now!

Bridge
My life - is in your hands
Come aboard mate - so we can...
Stay safe - far from pain
Help me sail through my hurricane!

Verse 5
All hands enlisted - bein' tossed and twisted
Strain together and - pull for shore
We won this battle with tested metal,
but the storm has - passed from now

Verse 6
No more alone - out at sea
I've got a true friend - next to me
A wild wave has hit the bow - I've got you in my lifeboat now.
