about

We’ll Live Along is the second single of YVI’s debut album ‘A Few Words Of Comfort’. This album, especially this song, is a gift to YVI’s loved ones: each song was inspired by a a difficult event a loved one went through. Every song is like a letter to his loved ones, in which he tells them they will be alright: they will live along. We’ll Live Along asks you to try and be comfortable with lowering your pace and feeling OK, instead of chasing that ever elusive, exhausting happiness we all seem to be after.

lyrics

The things that I said
The songs that I sang
The deeds that I have done
I did it all to make you happy

Though I know that it’s a lie
And that to live we must comply
A pleasant state of mind
Is something we could aim for

Now those days are done
Now our will is strong
Now we will move on
And the days that are gonna come, good or bad
We’ll live along

In a time where days are short
Always considering if it’s worth
‘Cause all we do must lead
To a place in which we are happy

You can presume that it’s alright
That you don’t think you’ll win this fight
Just lean on shoulders through the night
‘Cause just like you, we’ve all been broken, we’ve all been choking
Trust me now, you too are gonna be alright

(Now those days are done
Now our will is strong
Now we will move on
And the days that are gonna come, good or bad
We’ll live along)

Take me by the hand
‘Cause I act like I understand
But I’m scared too, I’m just like you
And they’re scared too, they are just like we’re

Now those days are done
Now our will is strong
Now we will move on
And the days that are gonna come, you see
The days that are gonna come
The days that are gonna come
Good or bad, we’ll live along
