    It's a song about depression and despair, and how just a simple lift from somebody could help you out of it. In the end the lyrics decide not to give up. Though it is written in the first person it is not autobiographical. I read someone that David wrote it about someone he knew. David totally wrote it at age 14.

    Feels like my life's been passing by

    With happiness just bein' a lie

    How did I get here, where am I going?

    One more day without knowing

    Struggling for one more breath

    As I'm drowning in a painful death

    Can someone reach out for me?

    In this dark and dreary sea

    'Cause it seems like no one can

    Hear the voice that's calling

    Try to take the most I can stand

    But I keep falling

    I try to chase the memories away

    But they haunt me everyday

    I hope I get over this phase

    'Cause I'm stuck inside this haze

    All I need is a simple lift

    Such a sweet and precious gift

    So I don't lose it all before

    What I have left is nothing more

    In my isolating misery

    I feel like the epitome

    Of darkness and despair

    Just leading onto nowhere

    Will I be able to win this race?

    I'm runnin' at a slow pace

    Trying hard to press on

    But the motivation's gone

    'Cause it seems like no one can

    Hear the voice that's calling

    Try to take the most I can stand

    But I keep falling

    Oh

    I try to chase the memories away

    But they haunt me everyday

    I hope I get over this phase

    'Cause I'm stuck inside this haze

    All I need is a simple lift

    Such a sweet and precious gift

    So I don't lose it all before

    What I have left is nothing more

    It may not have to be this way

    Waiting for me they (there?) could be a new day

    Maybe I can revise

    And escape from the lies

    I try to chase the memories away

    But they haunt me everyday

    I hope I get over this phase

    'Cause I'm stuck inside this haze

    All I need is a simple lift

    Such a sweet and precious gift

    So I don't lose it all before

    What I have left is nothing more

    There could be something more

    To what my life may have in store

    I'll move from where I began

    Keep on pressing through to the end
