You look away, you’re speaking with your back turned.
Summer’s gone and it left me with a sunburn.
What ever happened to our afternoons?
Just assumed, that you lost me like a left turn

I spent my childhood lookin' at the stage,
Waiting for the day it would be me and I could say
“Slow down…”
That’s my philosophy.

I get by
Making the best of what was mine.
If you think this could be what you want
You just gotta try.
You won’t mind
Playing a victim of the time
‘Cause I swear it’s getting better, yeah
That’s my philosophy.

It could be over in a moment,
The curtain falls before you know it,
Looking forward towards the next scene.
Remember back when we were young and still above?
We’re falling in and out of love and then again before the bell rings.

If you take a trip through my mind,
Who knows just what you’ll find.
Stop dead in your tracks from her eyes
Then put it all together,
That’s my philosophy.

I get by
Making the best of what was mine.
If you think this could be what you want
You just gotta try.
You won’t mind
Playing a victim of the time
‘Cause I swear it’s getting better, yeah
That’s my philosophy.

Remember the look upon her face?
Remember the way she loved the chase?
If I ever go back there someday,
I’d never, ever, let her get away.

It’s drinking away the summer days
A moment in time we can’t replace.
I won’t let my life go to waste , yeah
That’s my philosophy.

I get by
Making the best of what was mine.
If you think this could be what you want
You just gotta try.
You won’t mind
Playing a victim of the time
‘Cause I swear it’s getting better, yeah

I get by
Making the best of what was mine.
If you think this could be what you want
You just gotta try.
You won’t mind
Playing a victim of the time
‘Cause I swear it’s getting better, yeah

Whoa.
That’s my philosophy.

    General CommentThis part:
    "If you take a trip through my mind,
    Who knows just what you’ll find."

    Reminds me of part of "Puffy Little Shoes" by the Presidents of the United States of America:
    "Take a ride inside my eye
    And this is what you will likely find."
