just getting by lyrics – catie curtis

i woke up this morning, blankets thick like my tongue
my thinking still tangled, couldn’t get the words to come
yesterday i could fly, forgot to come back to the ground
you watched me in the sky, knowing how i always circle down
and when i’m just getting by, that’s when i see myself a fool
when i’m just getting by, that’s when i thank god for you
there’s snow on my windshield and i’m hours from home
i crack my window open and think of you asleep and warm
i was just singing, forgot to come back to the ground
and with my ears ringing, i’ll try not to make a sound
and when i’m just getting by, that’s when i see myself a fool
when i’m just getting by, that’s when i thank god for you
i felt like crying to your half-asleep heart
no reason, really, sometimes i just fall apart
it used to scare you when i’d come back to the ground
now you just hold me, knowing how i always circle around
and when i’m just getting by, that’s when i see myself a fool
when i’m just getting by, that’s when i thank god for you
