Things Get Right


Lyrics

Things Get Right

we’re up in Traverse City, summer’s falling from the trees
the waves crawl ‘cross the harbor from a crisp southwestern breeze
walking by the boat docks I take your hand in mine
and start to realize some wounds only need some time

and you’re here

the worries that once killed me don’t matter much these days
I’ve let go of all the things I can’t hold onto anyway
I used to wake in cold sweats, now I’m sleeping through the night
when things get right, it’s all right

seems like such a short time for us to’ve come so far
a belgian at the rare bird and some wine in leelenau
as I get near the intersection traffic lights turn green
I’m in love with a black cat, bad luck can’t follow me

and you’re here

the worries that once killed me don’t matter much these days
I’ve let go of all the things I can’t hold onto anyway
I used to wake in cold sweats, now I’m sleeping through the night
when things get right, it’s all right

the weekend winding down I had to say goodbye to you
I’m headed back to lansing driving south on 22
the road stretched out before me, the sun splits through the trees
I know it won’t be long before you’re once again with me

and I’ll be here

the worries that once killed me don’t matter much these days
I’ve let go of all the things I can’t hold onto anyway
I used to wake in cold sweats, now I’m sleeping through the night
when things get right, it’s all right
