Nelson, Willie - Something You Get Through Lyrics

When you lose the one you love
You think your world has ended
You think your world will be a waste of life
Without them in it
You feel there's no way to go on
Life is just a sad, sad song
But love is bigger than us all
The end is not the end at all

It's not somethin' you get over
But it's somethin' you get through
It's not ours to be taken
It's just a thing we get to do
Life goes on and on
And when it's gone
It lives in someone new
It's not somethin' you get over
But it's somethin' you get through

It's not somethin' you get over
But it's somethin' you get through
It's not ours to be taken
It's just a thing we get to do
Life goes on and on
And when it's gone
It lives in someone new
It's not somethin' you get over
But it's somethin' you get through
It's not somethin' you get over
But it's somethin' you get through

    You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, you learn to dance with the limp. Anne lamott


    I don't know why it says donate above what I shared. Please ignore it.

    A song we picked to play at my daddy's funeral October 22 of this year. October 18 is the night we lost him. October 21 would have been the day the doctors told him he was going on the lung transplant list. It hurts like hell. I will forever miss you, daddy.

    Bless you, Willie. Bless you, sensitive musicians. This is exquisite, sublime and transcends the 'country' categorization.

  65. Dill & Scott

    Wow! Still one of the VERY best singer/songwriters ever!

  67. Crystal Waters

    Willie you make country cool😁

  68. Mighty Joe the security guy

    now thats country music!!!

  69. 애비

    I love this song. Some people that record songs on an app or other ways usually tend to not really feel the emotion in the songs and can't relate to them. My dad's fiance passed in 2017 and he relates to almost all the songs he records

  70. Keith Rodgers

    Wow, no words. :)

  71. Gypsi Minion

    I am not sure if you remember me I threw a couple of hat pins on stage in Jackson Miss in 84 I think. It was a Texas oil well and a Jack Daniels bottle. Then I stood on the bumper of your bus an your eyes got big as saucers when I peeled my shirt off. I ask the cop to not notice. Your body guard dude wanted to hire Moon right there cause he scared him. Well when he didn't take the job I left his ass in a rest area in Louisiana. Anyway hope you still have the pins only thing you didn't throw back in the audience. I was the one that yelled and you said oh yeah we got a Texan in the house. My life could ha been totally different today. Instead of watch it rain in my bathroom. Best concert of my life thank you hun

  72. Ester Quinonez

    Someone in my grieving class recommended this song to me. I lost my son 14 weeks ago and this song hit me deep in my soul. Thank you Mr. Willie Nelson for giving us a beautiful song.

  73. Ray Gayton

    Thanks for putting into words what I feel most days. All of my family members are gone. It's hard not to weep when I hear this song. I miss them so much. Bless you all.

  74. WandaWanda Huff

    For my Big bro who lost his wife a week ago in Titusville fla.I love you howard..

  75. bob green

    At 216 I finally found the "peace" you are trying to say; Thanks!!

  80. Wise Owl Intuitive Services

    Its like he wrote all of his music knowing I would need it when my mom passed. She loved Willie and always called him her daddy! When she passed recently I have been playing many songs and they all sound like messages from her.
