Song Description

Life Line originally sounded like Cyndi Lauper's memorable "Time After Time" in an earlier version. This remake gives it a more organic, acoustic sound such as what we might hear Bonnie Raitt or James Taylor present.

Story Behind the Song

My personal tip o' the hat to the basic if-you-need-me-call-me genre. I've always loved Life Line, I think of it as one of my most simple and honest pieces. Plus, it practically wrote itself, and that's always a good sign.

Lyrics

LifeLine

if you?re feeling lost and got nowhere to go
strung out on a limb with nothing left to show
if you need a life line call me
I?ll send you a life line

I can tell you?re hard up, back in trouble again
wasting too much attention on those so-called friends
if you need a life line call me
I?ll send you a life line

the space between us all...
it?s growing wider all the time
day by day the wall gets higher
harder to get through to
fair weather friends
they?re not ringing true
and now and then
I know that gets to you
I?ll send you a life line

you?re looking so hard for someone to please
oh how blind is the heart while we?re on our knees
if you need a life line call me
I?ll send you a life line.

you don?t have to play tough or tender
cruel or kind to me
just believe me enough
to take this love
it?s mine and it?s free
now you?re on the run
but the day could come
when it might be me
then friend, where would you be
if I needed a life line
if I needed a life line
would you send me a life line?

if you're feeling lost and got nowhere to go
strung out on a limb with nothing left to show
if you need a lifeline, call me
I'll send you a life line

if you fear that you?re breaking
I?m here for the taking
through the darkest of dark times
I?ll send you a life line.
