There’s no need for depression
And no, I don’t have the blues
Wouldn’t want to go to heaven
If I can’t go there with you

And I still count my blessings
When I am standing with you
And no, I never learned my lesson
I’m still a dedicated fool

And baby, I will try for the sake of you and I
And baby, I will survive all the heartbreak love inspires

There’s no need for guessing
When you are faithfully true
Though my body may wander
My mind is always with you

And in the depths of destruction
There is but one golden rule
Look not unto your neighbor
Save yourself first, you silly fool

And baby, I will try for the sake of you and I
And baby, I will get by on whatever you provide
And baby, I will survive all the heartbreak love inspires
And baby, I will survive
Oh, I will survive

Pull me in tighter, pull me in tighter, yeah
Pull me in tighter, pull me in tighter, yeah

When you see me coming
Take off your running shoes
No arms and no weapons
When I am coming for you

And baby, I will try for the sake of you and I
And baby, I will get by on whatever you provide
And baby, I will survive all the heartbreak love inspires
And baby, I will survive
Oh, I will survive

Baby, I will survive
Oh, I will survive
And baby, I will survive

    General CommentThis song is gorgeous. It's more country-influenced than newer Rilo Kiley songs, but I have a soft spot in my heart for the older Rilo Kiley stuff.

    I think what the lyrics in this song are saying is how dedicated the one person is to the other, and Jenny realizes that in the relationship will end and so she says "I will survive" but for now "pull me in tighter". Like, even though I know it'll end, I just want to enjoy the moment.

    That's what I get out of it.

    that's the heart of it right there. even though she's with someone else at the moment, she's still thinking of the person she's singing to. I love this song. I hope it's on the next album.

    And baby I will survive all the heartbreak love inspires doesn't come in till she sings before "pull me in tighter"

    General CommentGod, that first verse just pulls me in every time.

    I just love the feel of this song, it's definitely not a country feel though.

    I get this 50s' vibe from it. I don't know how?
