LYRICS:

With Or Without You

Try to get along but it takes two
It’s a Whole lot of me and not much you
Working myself right to the bone
Thinking that I am all alone

Just like a monkey up in the tree
Throwing your feces straight at me
Wish you knew how to meet half way
Then I wouldn’t have to say

With or without you, life goes on.
With or without you, night turns to dawn
And tomorrow is a brand new day
With or without you, it will be that way

I keep on looking for common ground
It seems that there is none around
I throw my hands up in the air
It don’t matter, you just don’t care

Such gorgeous picking, and awesome vocals, and as I said below from my Merry Bear account, fabulous lyrics. It's an overall brilliant composition. You really have reached a higher level, and you were up there to begin with. <3 <3 <3

Nice tune. I'm getting a sense that the roller coaster of Life is hitting one of the low spots for you at the moment. I was at a CSN concert back in the 80s, where David Crosby, introducing the song said. "When life lands you in serious sh**, you do the only thing you CAN do... CARRY ON!" And the boys launched into it. And It Was Good.

Great lyrics, love the Simian reference. I once read a book about difficult people, but he tore it up and tossed it out. The tune is tight and druid in feel. I so like this one 5 stars
