Walking in A Straight Line
©Evie Ladin/Evil Diane Music

The hardest thing, what do you do when this world is just too big for you
walking in a straight line, walking in a straight line
The hardest thing there is to be, is alright with reality
walking in a straight line walking in a straight line

I’m used to it
Feeling the way that I feel
I’m used to it
Nothing’s gonna change
I’m used to it
Feeling the way that I feel
Gotta get used to everything being the same, same, same, same

My generation we were told we could have it all, never grow old
walking in a straight line, walking in a straight line
But now I’m grown and so I know, taking care of business is how it goes
walking in a straight line, walking in a straight line

I’m used to it
Feeling the way that I feel
I’m used to it
Nothing’s gonna change
I’m used to it
Feeling the way that I feel
Gotta get used to everything being the same, same, same, same

I dreamt the waters rising up, to carry you away from us
walking in a straight line, walking in a straight line
through my hands you start to slide, but i kept you by my side
walking in a straight line, walking in a straight line

I’m used to it
Feeling the way that I feel
I’m used to it
Nothing’s gonna change
I’m used to it
Feeling the way that I feel
Gotta get used to everything being
the same
Get used to it
I don’t like this feeling
Get used to it
They say, everything changes
Get used to it
I’m just waiting for the sun to shine again
I don’t want to get used to everything being the same, same, same, same

walking in a straight line, walking in a straight line……
