I THINK IT'S GETTING BETTER


I was having trouble sleeping the way I always do
I guess I got to thinking and I only thought of you
How I knew you were awake then
I’m sure you’re worried too
And I kept my eyes wide open on my bed of nails
Til the morning light came pale, how about you?

Oh please don’t feel alone cause you’re always on my mind
We do this to ourselves we get our hope so high
And I can feel the sun coming up behind the blinds
Though I don’t mind no I don’t mind no I don’t mind
Having you on my mind

I was out drinking the way I often do
I guess I got to speaking and I only spoke of you
How your laugh’s like a landslide and I’ve been slipping too
And goddamn you know your friends when you lose everything
I took it out to the street to sing Hallelujah

Went across the east river where that cold wind was coming through
And every time I’d shiver, you know I only shook for you
And I think it’s getting better but you gotta be patient too
And I’m here lest you need help finding hope in all that pain
But me I’m gonna walk away if you refuse
What else can I do
