The Killers – The Getting By II Lyrics

The Killers The Getting By II Lyrics (feat. Lucius)

When I get up she swears that she don’t hear it
Says that I’m as quiet as a mouse
I comb my hair and throw some water on my face
And back out of the stillness of our house

Dishwater days
She says she doesn’t notice
Nothing’s changed but the sadness in her eyes
Maybe it’s something that I could have prevented
Or maybe the whole damn dream was just a lie

Or maybe it’s the getting by
Maybe it’s the getting by
It’d swallow up your every step
Boy, if it could
But maybe it’s the stuff it takes
To get up when the morning breaks
And hold on
Can you hold on?
Can you hold on?
Can you hold on
Till the getting’s good?

Ya know I believe
Ya know I can’t deny it
But people were told they’d prosper in this land
Still I know some who’ve never seen the ocean
Or set one foot on a velvet bed of sand

They got their treasure laying way up high
But when I look up, all I see is sky
Can you tell me
Can you tell me why?
Can you tell me
Can you tell me why?
Can you tell me
Can you tell me why?

When I look up all I see is sky
When I look up all I see is sky, sky
When I look up all I see is sky, sky
Mother can you tell me why, why
When I look up, all I see is sky, sky?
When I look up, all I see

Maybe it’s the getting by
Maybe it’s the getting by
It’d swallow up your every step
Boy, if it could
You know it would
You know it
But maybe it’s the stuff it takes
To get up when the morning breaks
And hold on
Can you hold on?
Can you hold on?
Can you hold on
Till the gettin’s good?

Can you hold on?
Can you hold on
Can you hold on
Till the gettin’s good?

Can you hold on?
Can you hold on?
Can you hold on?
