The War On Drugs – Touch Of Grey lyrics
[Verse 1]
Must be getting early
Clocks are running late
Paint-by-number morning sky
Seems so phony
The dawn is breaking everywhere
You light a candle, curse the glare
Draw the curtains I don't care
Cause it's all right

[Chorus: Instrumental]

[Verse 2]
I see you've got your list out
Say your piece and get out
Yes, I get the gist of it
But it's all right
Oh well, anyway
Sorry that you feel that way
The only thing there is to say
Every silver lining's got a
Touch of grey

[Chorus]
I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

[Verse 3]
Oh it's a lesson to me
The Ables and the Beggars and the Thieves
The ABC's, yeah, we all think of
Oh when we try to keep just a little grace

[Instrumental Break]

[Verse 4]
I know the rent is in arrears
The dog has not been fed in years
It's even worse than it appears
Cause it's all right
The cow is giving kerosene
The kid can't read, he's seventeen
The words he knows are all obscene
The shoe is on the hand that fits
There's really nothing much to it
Just whistle through your teeth and spit
Oh well, a touch of grey
It kind of suits you anyway
Oh, that's all I really had to say
Cause it's all right

[Chorus]
I will get by
I will get by
I will get by
I will survive

[Outro]
We will get by
We will get by
We will get by
We will survive
