Lime Cordiale – We Just Get By

It’s often tricky just to start your day
A whisky for the evening pain
Well, that works for some
It keeps ’em moving on
We never buckle to the bleak fourteen
We cuddle with our legs between
Well that’s not enough
It could be but not for us

We’re unemployed, could have avoided it
Some get annoyed when paranoia hits
You can’t resist but you’d be spoiling this
Why not just enjoy it?

We just get by
Hanging on this ticking time
Till both of us start to decline
Together we can lose our minds
We just scrape through
Unconcerned with what others do
But if they have the slightest clue
Together we don’t lose our cool

When I was younger I thought I was meant
To have a house in every continent
But dreams don’t come true
They changed when I met you
We keep a secret that is plain to see
Others work it out [?]
And doused in regret
Shake those evening sweats

We’re unemployed, could have avoided it
Some get annoyed when paranoia hits
You can’t resist but you’d be spoiling this
Why not just enjoy it?

We just get by
Hanging on this ticking time
Till both of us start to decline
Together we can lose our minds
We just scrape through
Unconcerned with what others do
But if they have the slightest clue
Together we don’t lose our cool
