THROW ME A ROPE
(Nori & Barbie Kelley)

We were a happy family
We walked through life together
Sometimes things got tough
We went through stormy weather
But sometimes unexpected things
They take you by surprise
As if someone walks up to you
And hits you right between the eyes
Our son had trouble coping
With bullies everyday
He couldn't take life anymore
So he just walked away

Ooh, throw me a rope
Ooh, give me some hope

So Joshua had left us
And then there were just three
Something ripped my insides out
And took a part of me
Sometimes unexpected things
They take you by surprise
As if someone walks up to you
And hits you right between the eyes
Richard had trouble coping
With depression everyday
When I thought it could not get worse
He just walked away

Ooh, throw me a rope
Ooh, give me some hope
Ooh, throw me a rope
Ooh, give me some hope

So here we are, just Holly and me
I'm doing the best I can
Trying to keep from falling apart
Life isn't what we planned
Cause sometimes unexpected things
They take you by surprise
As if someone walks up to you
And hits you right between the eyes
I'm hanging on, day by day
But Holly has shut down
Thought a change of scene might do us good
I hope she'll come around

Ooh, throw me a rope
Ooh, give me some hope
Ooh, throw me a rope
Ooh, give me some hope

Ooh, throw me a rope
Ooh, give me some hope
Ooh, throw me a rope
Somebody please, somebody please
Ooh, give me some hope
I'm drowning here, I'm drowning here, help me
