If I lay face
Down on the ground
Would you walk all over me?
Have we learned
What we set out to learn?
Well then, love, we will see

[Chorus:]
Now, don't drown in your tears, babe
Push your head toward the air
Now, don't drown in your tears, babe
I will always be there

When you fall and you
Can't find your way
Push your hand up to the sky
I will run just to
To be by your side
Don't you ever bat an eye

[Chorus]

But I will tear the price from your head
And keep you from harm - that's what you said
There's people climbing out of their cars
Lining the roadside, trying to glimpse at the dead

[Chorus]
