lyrics

In time it'll come on back; the smile, the quiet reminder,
In line with those miracles woven in around.
Outside, the simple silence waiting for someone to listen,
But you cannot hear it with your ears against the clouds.

And no bottle or forced illusion,
Will dissipate them like the sun,
Into the breeze I'll leave my meaning,
Within your eyes I'll be undone.

Cause' I'm just trying to get by happy,
I'm just trying to get by happy.

Written out on the painted sky,
the river, the days through my real eyes,
Oh sew me into the fabric of them all.
Wholeness I think is not so hidden as you'd have imagined,
At least just a brief bit, but I'll take what I can.

And maybe when I'm done with breathing,
I'll be a warm day in the sun,
Into the breeze I'll leave my answer,
Within the eyes I'll be undone.

Cause I'm just trying to get by happy,
I'm just trying to get by happy.

And there's something I do not yet know,
But I have felt it every second
in the shaking of my bones from the start.

I'm just trying to get by happy
