I’ll Get By - Pianos Become The Teeth

"I want to live.

It’s been a rough while and some days are worse than others,

there’s no proper way to feel, no mirth, no levity, no amazing grace,

just a flame on a lake floating away, 

I can’t let you lay, 

I want you to know, I’m learning patience against my will,

I want you to know, I’ll get by, always barely scraping

with just a hunger, with just a heart apart,

it’s a hell of a thing.”

I’ll Get By by Pianos Become the Teeth

I remember the first time I ever saw them, ever even heard of them, they played this song and I felt the water works coming.  The lyrics are so fucking real.
