Somehow, You'll Manage

How do you manage
To do what you do?
The whole worlds against you,
But still you pull through.

Said he'd love you forever,
Yeah that was a lie.
Don't shed a tear,
He's not worth it to cry.

I just want you to know,
If you were my girl,
We'd run away forever.
I'd make you my world.

How do you manage
To do what you do?
The whole worlds against you,
But still you pull through.

And so I sit here lonely,
But my life is quite swell.
I won't wish him harm,
I won't wish him hell.

For you do still love him,
I see in your heart.
I really do wish
You two weren't apart.

How do you manage
To do what you do?
The whole worlds against you,
But still you pull through.

Maybe someday...
You'll look back and see.
The wonderful couple,
We couldn't be.

I hope that this story
Breaks through the wall.
I hope it will catch you
When you nearly fall.

And now I know...

I know how you manage
To do what you do.
The whole worlds against you,
And your friends pull you through.

I know that it's tough
To get over the guy,
That loved you so much...
And then said good-bye.

But I'm here...

I know how you manage
To do what you do.
The whole worlds against us,
But I know we'll pull through.

Oh, it's true,
I'm here...
I love you.
