​Right By You

This song is by Tuka and appears on the album Life Death Time Eternal (2015).

Original video
I was lost
I was down
I got up when I found myself in
The middle of it all
And I ain't perfect, I'm just human
When the shoe fits, I just wear it
Call me foolish but
That isn't it at all

Opinions, we got plenty
How many fucks can you give? Not many
I answer my own query
So we don't talk any
Spare a penny for my thoughts till my pocket's not empty
Hey-yo, I rock steady
Drop heavy, block petty
Bullshit out of my world
These cool kid's parties not ready for me
Hella corny plus watchin' trendies barter with the confetti
Getting very boring
But instead of yawnin' or kickin' doors in
I walk my walk every morning
Waiting for you Ken and Barbies to impart what's important
So, what's important?
Can't we just get it sorted?
Yo I spent last week livin' in the now
As time peddles past me I'm figurin' it out
As I listen to the calm breeze
I can feel ya heart beat
Inspired by the rhythm
So I'm scribblin' this down

Please, you don't need to forgive me
Just help free that belief in me
I walk this walk, I heard you shout
If I talk cheap then call me out

I was lost
And I was down
But I got up when I found myself in
The middle of it all
And I ain't perfect
I'm just human
When the shoe fits, I just wear it
Call me foolish but
That isn't it at all

Oh I'm
Just tryna' do right,
Tryna' do right by you
I'm just tryna' do right,
I'm tryna' do right by you

Have you ever smiled at a stranger
When you realise they're having a shitty day?
Or showed faith to somebody you're afraid of?
Or shown love to that fucker you really hate?
For pity's sake
Do you know when to say when enough is enough?
Hit the hay and be patient
Can you cope when they cave in?
Can you keep bustin' a nut on the cusp of a great thing?
So, when something you say is wrong
Maybe you gotta save it
Maybe you gotta hold on
This crown it knows no halo, it's shameful
Got you on loop playing the same song
I ain't takin' the high road my friend
I'm putting the work in
Cause sometimes when I blink my eyes close
And I think if I didn't
Then why would I deserve this?

Please you don't need to forgive me
Just help free that belief in me
I walk this walk, I heard you shout
If I talk cheap then call me out

I was lost and
I was down but
I got up when
I found myself in
The middle of it all

And I ain't perfect, I'm just human
When the shoe fits, I just wear it
Call me foolish but
That isn't it at all

Oh I'm
Just tryna' do right,
Tryna' do right by you
I'm just tryna' do right
I'm tryna' do right by you
Oh I'm
Just tryna' do right,
Tryna' do right by you
I'm just tryna' do right
I'm tryna' do right by you
