Story Behind the Song

The inspiration for this song came through anger at having to clean out the filing cabinets at work. When I got home, I sat with guitar in hand and wrote.

Lyrics

You?ll Get By

Verse:
When your mind?s full of anger
It affects your soul
Throws your world into turmoil
Sets your heart in stone

It affects your lifestyle
And before you know
You?ve hit rock bottom
It seems there?s no place to go

Chorus:
So lift up your chin
Look the world in the eye
Don?t give up, don?t give in
I know you?ll get by

Verse:
On the edge of a lifeline
Where it?s dark as night
You can feel all the anguish
Cutting through like a knife

Everything seems hopeless
And you can?t find the strength
Or the courage to open
Your wounds to a friend

Chorus:
So lift up your chin
Look the world in the eye
Don?t give up, don?t give in
I know you?ll get by

Mid:
When your heart is open
And you feel the pain
Find your angel to hold on to
Pull yourself back again

Verse:
So if your mind?s full of anger
Or you?re feeling blue
Sing the words of the chorus
That?s been written for you

Chorus:
And lift up your chin
Look the world in the eye
Don?t give up, don?t give in
I know you?ll get by

Chorus:
So lift up your chin
Look the world in the eye
Don?t give up, don?t give in
I know you?ll get by
I know you'll get by
