The Thing That Makes Me Get Through Lyrics

by Michael Franti & Spearhead

Sometimes Im down on the ground
When you come around
And my head feels heavy like its fifty pounds
Of a world gone crazy, but you tell me Im not
I just got to release, but Im tied up in knots
Im feelin so darn tired, and I wanna let go
I wanna dive in the ocean and in your undertow
You pick me up when I need you cuz Im feelin low
You pick me up when I need you cuz I, I, I

Nobody knows what you doin when you do to me
The things you always do
Nobody knows what you doin when you do to me
The thing that helps me get through
Nobody knows what you doin when you do to me
The thing that feels so good
Nobody knows what you doin when you do to me
You do the thing that helps me get throught
to you

Its a crazy world, a mixed up world
Involving politics and the underworld
You shake it up a little, you see another side
You see a flower grow, and then a suicide
But if youre all alone, you know youre not alone
There are plenty of people ready to take you home
One day youre cuttin class, and then youre buyin gas
And then youre out on your own and they kick you in the ass

Nobody knows what you doin when you do to me
The things you always do
Nobody knows what you doin when you do to me
The thing that helps me get through
Nobody knows what you doin when you do to me
The thing that feels so good
Nobody knows what you doin when you do to me
You do the thing that helps me get throught
to you

Under the city lights, and when were on the phone
Even in the streets, and when were all alone
You do the thing that helps me get through
The thing that helps me get through
You do the thing that helps me get through
To you

Nobody knows what you doin when you do to me
The things you always do
Nobody knows what you doin when you do to me
The thing that helps me get through
Nobody knows what you doin when you do to me
The thing that feels so good
Nobody knows what you doin when you do to me
You do the thing that helps me get throught
You do the thing that helps me get throught
You do the thing that helps me get throught
to you
