  • You're not doing it this alone
    You're not doing,
    You're not doing this alone

    For my sweetheart the melancholic, you have crossed the river Styx
    And the waves have taken you away
    As I lay my head on your chest, I can hear it your veins
    Wake me up when you come to bed

    [Chorus]
    So toughen up
    Biko toughen up
    Biko toughen up
    This world isn't kind to little things

    Was my love strong enough to bring you back from the dead
    If I could eat your cancer I would but I can't
    So I keep writing these songs for you
    To steal you from your gray
    And we can dance in our front room again

    So toughen up
    Biko toughen up
    Biko toughen up
    I need you be strong for us

    [Chorus]

    Don't you know that when you stand you stand up for the both of us
    Remember that when the darkness looms
    Every tear you shed is cleansing, taking the pain away from you
    I left you blueberries in the fridge, the little things that I can do

    You're not doing this alone
