about

This photo was taken when I was ten or eleven. I had no idea how to play guitar back then. I think that little guy would be pretty proud of this song. I sure am, and I feel vary thankful for the talented musicians who helped breath life into my work.

lyrics

[Verse 1]
When I was young, time it slowly passed
But when it was fun, well it never seemed to last
Your friends, our bikes, and the convenience store
Every crush a closed door, but I was busy drawing pictures on the floor

[Pre-Chorus 1]
And I don’t know, nothing seems, special anymore
Your sudden screams, the broken glass, and the toys across the floor
It comes to me, in images, and faded memories

[Chorus 1]
It’s always been the simple things that make it easy
The simple things they make it easy
The simple things they make it easy

[Verse 2]
To feel nostalgia, for the past forever gone
Always closer to the end, I think I knew it all along
These cops in my house, ask if I’m alright
Christmas tree on its side, Drywall holes, but I nod as though it’s fine

Get the hell out of my house, with your badge and your questions
All my demons live here, so why don’t you just let them
And I know, and I know, and I know, and I know
That eventually you’d show
I could have thought without a song, life could have left me all alone

Pious in your views, but lovely eyes aglow
Buried in your beliefs, but it ain’t above nor down below

[Pre-Chorus 2]
It’s a curve, it’s a kiss
It’s the hand that holds the pain
It’s a voice, it’s the truth
It’s singing gonna keep me sane
It’s the fall before the plea
And it’s time I finally see

[Chorus 2]
It’s always been the simple things that make it easy
The simple things they make it easy
The simple things they make it easy
The simple things they make it easy yeah
I think I knew it all along
