Maverick sabre – Get by

Get by
Get by

Get By”

 

Said, two phones and two lines

Look who’s ringing

Selling half dozen 3.5’s just for living

Keeps it sparked up and street wise

No forgiving, now he’s-

Oh yes

 

Now he’s at home and mum cries

She’s been drinking

Keeps her glass by her bedside

Full of sinning

At the back of those eyes, you can see it killing (Oh, oh)

 

And I’m still here tryna get by

(Know that it gets lonely)

Still here tryna get your head right

(Know that it’s not only you)

And I’m still here tryna get by

(Know that it gets lonely)

Still here tryna get your head right

(Know that it’s not only you)

 

Still dodging cracks in the pavement

He don’t want his luck to run out

Now he’s staring at these four walls

Still looking for a way out

‘Cause this time never solved it and this life never promised

And it’s Hard to keep your head up when you’re tired of being honest

 

Now he’s at home and he cries

No one listens

Keeps a mask by the bedside

Just for living

At the back of those eyes, you can see it killing (Oh, oh)

 

And I’m still here tryna get by

(Know that it gets lonely)

Still here tryna get your head right

(Know that it’s not only you)

And I’m still here tryna get by

(Know that it gets lonely)

Still here tryna get your head right

(Know that it’s not only you)

 

Still here trying to get your head right

And tomorrow doesn’t look too bright

And no wonder why we look outside

You know some will never live these times

 

And I’m still here tryna get by

(Know that it gets lonely)

Still here tryna get your head right

(Know that it’s not only you)

And you’re still here tryna get by

(Know that it gets lonely)

Still here tryna get your head right

(Know that it’s not only you)

 

(What love means to me is, a very rare feeling that I get

I suppose the people I love, I trust the most

And I know that they trust me, yeah

And do anything for me)
