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 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.
