and I could've lived without you
I could, I did for years
and I could've faced the mornings
and I could've held back tears
and I could've lived without you
I could, I did for years
and I could've ignored mornings
stayed in bed instead
and just like the man who's blind
doesn't miss the sky
and I could've got by

and I could've filled up seasons
and I could've drunk them dry
and I could've thought up reasons
all of my life
and I could've worn a smile
in garish painted red
and I could've filled up evenings
howl to the moon instead
and I hardly mourn the fact
that my arms could never fly
and I could've got by

and I didn't want a lover
and I didn't want a thing
and I could've seen the others
laid there and felt nothing
and I could've kept on drinking
and I could've played in time
and I could've shared my thinking
with the strangers I sat beside
and just like a life that's bliss
can't conceive of crime
and I would've got by
and just like a grudge I hold
doesn't need the light
and I would've
and I would've got by

but you are to me
like salt is to the sea
like blossoms are to trees
like loose leaves are to breeze
like travel ??
like ice belongs to cold
and my life was bleak and bare
before you, my love, were there
and if I'd never seen a star
a twinkle I couldn't describe
but I would've
and I would've got by
