We'll Get By (The Autism Song)
Johnny Orr Band
*Official Video Release*
John & John Entertainment LLC. 2014

By: Johnny Orr written August 2013

Maybe I don't speak too well, but I'm coming outta my shell
And I like playing by myself if you can't tell
I like to go to school, yeah I'm a miracle, and I'm glad to be alive

If you'll wait patiently, well then eventually,
I will understand the words that you're saying to me
My autism, is like a prison, that I'm in

I share my heart but only in my mind,
I share my pain when I scream at night
I can't express to you, what I'm going through,
The only way is for me to cry

Mom I see your fear, through every single tear
Just to know I've caused you pain from inside of here
My autism, is like a prison, that I'm in

I share your joy but only in my mind
You show me love but just not in my time
Cause my reality, takes everything in me
To make it through without a fight

I know you love me, when you hug me,
And when I hear you pray to God for Him to heal me
Maybe one day, you won't have to pray
And I won't have to see you cry

Maybe one day, I won't be this way,
Until then we'll get by
