Waitin' for the ambulance to come
Hopin' that it doesn't come too late
Hearin' the sirens in the distance
Hold on help is on the way

Mister Ambulance Driver I'm right here beside her
And though I'll live somehow I've found
Mister Ambulance Driver I'm not a real survivor
'Cause I'm wishing that I was the one that
Wasn't gonna be here anymore
The one that wasn't here anymore
The one that wasn't here anymore

Oh we can't trade places
Our lives are strangely our own
Mister Ambulance Driver tell me
For everyone that dies, someone new is born

Mister Ambulance Driver I'm right here beside her
And though I'll live somehow I've found
Mister Ambulance Driver I'm not a real survivor
'Cause I'm wishing that I was the one that
Wasn't gonna be here anymore

Mister Ambulance Driver I'm right here beside her
And though I'll live somehow I've found
Mister Ambulance Driver I'm not a real survivor
'Cause I'm wishing that I was the one that
Wasn't gonna be here anymore
The one that isn't here anymore
The one that isn't here anymore
