I've been living on borrowed money
because it seems I've failed, honey,
at taking care of my business
Lord knows, you've born witness
to my pitfalls

We've gambled, won, and lost some
The chances missed
How they've come and gone
We'll get by
I promise, firefly

I walk a road paved in debt
that I can't get in front of
M., forgive me what I'm lacking;
a balance that's subtracting again

Fist over fist,
work up the bat
We'll find a way to fill the sack,
and we'll get by
I promise, firefly

"I tried so hard
A push you can't contest
I know I gave my best
And I'll never understand
how you turned and bit the hand
that gave with love upon demand

I got you by,
through all the lean times
the stop signs
the stress lines
the thin dime

I'll get by on my own time"
