I Get Along Without You Very Well
Diana Krall Lyrics

I get along without you very well
Of course I do
Except when the soft rains fall
And drip from leaves, then I recall
The thrill of being sheltered in your arms
Of course, I do
But I get along without you very well

I've forgotten you just like I should
Of course I have
Except to hear your name
Or someone's laugh that is the same
But I've forgotten you just like I should

What a guy, what a fool am I
To think my breaking heart could kid the moon
What's in store? Should I phone once more?
No, it's best that I stick to my tune

I get along without you very well
Of course I do
Except perhaps in spring
But I should never think of spring
For that would surely break my heart in two

Such a sad song. The emptiness of "life without" is so perfectly captured with Claus Ogerman's sumptuous orchestration behind Diana's wistful voice.

Janice Burford

My prayers are with you Stephanie Davis. So sorry for your loss 🙏🏿💕

Stephanie Adams

I recently lost someone (unexpected death). This song both comforts me...and breaks my heart. It's been 8 weeks since he died unexpectedly. Today is a particularly difficult day. I miss Paul so much. I've lost others... but losing him is so painful. This song... and other Diana Krall songs...help me process the deep grief I feel.

Sharon T

It's not the oldest version, but it's the best. Just the right tone of diffidence, deeply buried but still seething anger, with a side dish of revenge served cold.

AND--Besides that hypnotic voice, she plays her own keyboards. Beat that!


amazing... by far her best album. I've listened to it dozens of times, and never get tired of it.


Missing my friends right now and this song hit me just the right/wrong way.

Carol Vaughan Davis

This song hits home for me....To think my breaking heart could kid the moon.
