Just Getting By

from Truth From Lies

I woke up this morning, blankets thick like my tongue
My thinking still tangled, couldn't get the words undone
Yesterday I could fly, forgot to come back to the ground
You watched me in the sky, knowing how I always circle down

And when I'm just getting by, that's when I see myself a fool
When I'm just getting by, that's when I thank god for you

There's snow on my windshield and I'm hours from home
I crack my window open and think of you asleep and warm
I was just singing, forgot to come back to the ground
And with my ears ringing, I'll try not to make a sound

And when I'm just getting by, that's when I see myself a fool
When I'm just getting by, that's when I thank god for you

I felt like crying to your half-asleep heart
No reason, really, sometimes I just fall apart
It used to scare you when I'd come back to the ground
Now you just hold me, knowing how I always circle around

And when I'm just getting by, that's when I see myself a fool
When I'm just getting by, that's when I thank god for you
