ruby lyrics – foster the people

and there she goes
she was sitting really nice with her head full of advice from friends
she walks around
she tries to rearrange but everything goes under her bed

and it’s countless
she’s got a jar full of change saved up for vacation
and she’s watching
she’s watching her sons growing up just like their mom

and it’s hard
and i said ruby, ruby, ruby
gotta start lifting your head up, head up, head up
and i said ruby, ruby, ruby
i know it’s hard but you gotta get outta bed, outta bed, outta bed

yeah she don’t know what to do
she’s got everything and nothing to lose
she got a call from a guy just seeing if she’s alright
yeah

she’s got a fistful of tears held back by the strength of five
and she says, “happiness ain’t free
everybody fights just like me
but i’ve given up the ability to retreat”

and i said ruby, ruby, ruby
you gotta start lifting your head up, head up, head up
and i said ruby, ruby, ruby
i know it’s hard but you gotta get outta bed, outta bed, outta bed

yeah she don’t know what to do
she’s got everything, nothing to lose
yeah

yeah you’ve got time to figure it out
i’m here so don’t be scared
you’ve got time to figure it out
i’m here and i am here

you’ve got time to figure it out
i’m here so don’t be scared
you’ve got time to figure it out
i’m here so don’t be scared

ruby, ruby, ruby
and i said ruby, ruby, ruby
and i said ruby, ruby, ruby
and i said ruby, ruby, ruby
all alone, rest your head on my lap when you’re down
all alone, rest your head on my lap, on my lap
ruby don’t cry
