I woke up, head heavy
Blankets thick like my tongue
My thinking still tangled
Couldn't get my words undone
And yesterday I could fly
Forgot I'd come back to the ground
You watched me in the sky
Knowing how I always circle down

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 I think of you asleep and warm
I was just singing
Forgot I'd come back to the ground
And with my ears ringing
I'll try not to make a sound

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
And it used to scare you
When I'd come back to the ground
But now you just hold me
Knowing how I always circle around

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
