Lifeguard

Lyrics: Peter Beckett, Dennis Lambert
Music: Peter Beckett, Dennis Lambert

Played by Bob Weir with Bobby & The Midnites

She takes something to make her feel happy
And something to deal with her doubt
Do those empty eyes realize
She's gonna have to straighten it out
She's living like a lady of leisure
And loving like a thief in the night
And that lonely heart is coming apart
But she don't see the warning light, no

Chorus
High tide, bad sign
Somebody better throw her a line
The girl is going down
It's just a matter of time
She needs a lifeguard
Lifeguard

She's drowning in her condition
And her attitude is so c'est la vie
[There's a fine line] in a troubled mind (note 1)
But she doesn't wanna hear it from me

[chorus]
She needs a lifeguard
Lifeguard

She takes something to make her feel happy
And something to deal with her doubt
Do those empty eyes realize
She's gonna have to straighten it out

[chorus]
She needs a lifeguard
Lifeguard
[chorus]
[chorus]
Notes
(1) this is what the album notes say, but it's not what I hear - it sounds like "flying" not "fine line"
