Back on My Feet

“Back On My Feet”
written by Glen Phillips & Craig Northey
I’ve been angry
And I have strayed
I said words I never thought that I could say
You were sadly sweet
Like and old bar song
But I’ll be back up on my feet before too long

You could say you wanted me
If I said it first
Words rang hollow
And the emptiness became a thirst

Now I could drink those words
And they would make me strong
I’d be back up on my feet before too long
I’d be back up on my feet before too long
Before too long

If you’d met me now
You never would have stuck around
No, you never would have stuck around

So I will lay me down
By the salty sea
And let the water pull the sand over my body
To wash me clean
Like a river stone
And I’ll be back up on my feet before to long
Yeah, I’ll be back upon my feet before too long

Back on my feet
Back up on my feet
Back on my feet
Back on my feet
Back on my feet
