You never thought I'd be in this place
I didn't think so either
I was never the child
I was the protector
But I guess this needs to happen
To benefit us both
We're switching roles
Yeah, switching roles

So wrap your arms around me
And never let go
Fill up my emptiness
And say I'm not alone
Tell me that I'm safe here
That you're never far away
Say not to worry about tomorrow
But to appreciate today


We thought I was the carer
And you were the vulnerable one
You had the mind of a child
While my innocence was gone
But I guess it's for a reason
However unclear
We're switching roles
Yeah, switching roles

*So wrap your arms around me
And never let go
Fill up my emptiness
And say I'm not alone
Tell me that I'm safe here
That you're never far away
Say not to worry about tomorrow
But to appreciate today
