Lyrics

When you get to it, you’re gonna be by yourself
If you get through it, we’re gonna be by your side
When you get to it, you’re gonna be by yourself
If you get through it, we’re gonna be by your side

Out on your own, it’s gonna be real nice
Drink muddy water, try to curate the spice
No revolution, you’ll be coastin’ along
Might even find yourself singing your song
The market’s tough and the city is mean
Don’t want no issues but you sure like the scene
You’re rolling deep, tryin’ to live like a queen
And you’re thinkin’ you’re rockin’ so squeaky clean

When you get to it, you’re gonna be by yourself
If you get through it, we’re gonna be by your side
When you get to it, you’re gonna be by yourself
If you get through it, we’re gonna be by your side

Too dumb to bluff, and you’re too smart to call
And pretty soon, you’ll just give up on it all
Your mind’ll burn and your feet might freeze
But before long, you’ll be weak in the knees
See the problem is, there’s more to it than that
Your heart is big yet your ego is fat
Without a compass, you get lost real fast
Cause it’s a mean ol’ world, complicated and vast

When you get to it, you’re gonna be by yourself
If you get through it, we’re gonna be by your side
When you get to it, you’re gonna be by yourself
If you get through it, we’re gonna be by your side

Other side of this thing, you feel real trapped
On the slide and the swing, the grass looked green
Down in the valley, where you took all your hope
My dear departed, the world gave you that rope
The seas were parted, and you went for a dip
Saw your fate, and you gave it the slip
I’ll be here when you’re ready to cope
I’ll be here when you’re ready to get off your trip

When you get to it, you’re gonna be by yourself
If you get through it, we’re gonna be by your side
When you get to it, you’re gonna be by yourself
If you get through it, we’re gonna be by your side
We’re gonna be, we’re gonna be
We’re gonna be, we’re gonna be, right by your side
We’re gonna be, we’re gonna be
We’re gonna be, we’re gonna be, right by your side
When you get to it
