Falsettos the Musical - Holding to the Ground Lyrics

“Holding to the Ground” is a song performed by Stephanie J. Block (Trina) from the musical FALSETTOS and is written by William Finn and James Lapine.

TRINA
I was sure growing up I would live the life
My mother assumed I'd live
Very Jewish, very middle-class, and very straight
Where healthy men stayed healthy men
And marriages were long and great
I smile
I don't complain

I'm trying to keep sane as the rules keep changing
Families aren't what they were
Thank God there's a husband and a child whom I adore
But then there's more
So many more
There's always more

Life is never what you planned
Life is moments you can't understand
And that is life
I'm plain
I don't astound

I hold to the ground
As the ground keeps shifting
Keeping my balance square
Trying not to care about this man who Marvin loves
But that's my life
He shared my life
Yes, that's my life

Life is never what you planned
Life is moments you can't understand
And that is life

Holding to the ground
As the ground keeps shifting
Trying to keep sane
As the rules keep changing
Keeping up my head
As my heart falls out of sight
Everything will be all right
Everything will be all right
