Staring at a batch of pills

And a glass of water

Not budging an inch

But I know I oughta

Oh, I’m doing the time

 

Loving voice calls to ask

If I need anything else

Cause at the moment

I can’t take care of myself

While the clock gently chimes

 

But I know I’m not alone

I feel it in my bones

We’re shoulder to shoulder

In it together, holdin’ on

We’ve got this

 

And you know it’ll be bliss

When we’re again moving free

Gotta stay closer to home

We can still create dreams

These turbulent days will pass

 

I’m a patient who is patient

I’m encouraging you on

In moments you feel down

Just remember my song:

Don’t give up, this won’t last

 

For you know you’re not alone

Can feel it in my bones

We’re shoulder to shoulder

Through healing growing bolder

We’ve got this

We’ve got this

 

Lets write a new script

Don’t need doc to sign it

Start a new adventure

Without a physio lecture

 

And we’ll never be alone

We feel humanity in our bones

Walking shoulder to shoulder

Lo and behold us

We’ve got this

Yes, we’ve got this
