Rilo Kiley - “A Better Son/Daughter”

and sometimes when you’re on, you’re really fucking on 
and your friends they sing along and they love you 
but the lows are so extreme that the good seems fucking cheap 
and it teases you for weeks in its absence 
but you’ll fight and you’ll make it through 
you’ll fake it if you have to 
and you’ll show up for work with a smile 
and you’ll be better and you’ll be smarter 
and more grown up and a better daughter or son 
and a real good friend 
and you’ll be awake, you’ll be alert 
you’ll be positive though it hurts 
and you’ll laugh and embrace all your friends 
and you’ll be a real good listener 
you’ll be honest, you’ll be brave 
you’ll be handsome and you’ll be beautiful 
you’ll be happy 

your ship may be coming in, you’re weak but not giving in 
to the cries and the wails of the valley below 
and your ship may be coming in, you’re weak but not giving in 
and you’ll fight it, you’ll go out fighting all of them

somebody put me back in school,
i forget everything i used to know:
how to leave the boy behind
without having to watch him go, 

oh
