lyrics

I picked my head up off the pillow
Just to drop it on the floor
I barely rolled it out the door
Before I heard this little voice
Saying "hey you made the choice
to go make something of your day
And you may trip but that's okay
See all those bruises always fade"

I drive my car along the road
And join the others in a line
We sit there stagnant petrifying
Fossilizing all the while
I turn my music up
And thank my lucky stars this car's got gas
I know we're moving inch by inch
I know the waiting time won't last
The waiting time won't last and soon we're moving fast

I'm not doing good, but I've been doing better
And that's good enough for now, that's good enough for now
I'm not doing good, but it won't be bad forever
I'll be good for now, I'll be good for now

I sing my heart out in my room
And when I'm done I sit and wait
I think I'll hate the way this sounds
Til I can sing it on a stage

I've sung on stages where the people there don't care I'm in the room
Think I prefer the way my furniture just listens to my tune
And pillows are good for talking to

I'm not doing good, but I've been doing better
And that's good enough for now, that's good enough for now
I'm not doing good, but it won't be bad forever
I'll be good for now, I'll be good for now

I crossed my heart and hoped to die that I could leave my mom and dad
Just make it out somehow of hollow towns that keep holding me back
I trust myself I'm doing well and I can make it on my own
Oh California, can you cosign all that bullshit I just told

I'm not doing good, but I've been doing better
And that's good enough for now, that's good enough for now
I'm not doing good, but it won't be bad forever
I'll be good for now, I'll be good for now
