about

A one-take recording with banjo and voice... then added a few double vocal parts. I don't play banjo very often... so I had concentrate extra hard to try to read lyrics and play the right chords/notes which lead to a slightly laid back banjo part when I'm singing.

lyrics

Easiest Thing to Do - February 23, 2013

You're drinking wine in the morning
You've been up all night
Guess I needn't ask if you've been doing fine

Your eyes wide
Like your on amphetamines
You've got the cleanest house, I've ever seen

I'll pass on the wine
But I'll have a cup of tea
I think it is time that you are honest with me

CHORUS:
I've know you for so long
We both know that it is true
I've know you for too long
That I can't give up on you
Even though sometimes
That'd be the easiest thing to do

Let's go for a walk
I think the sun will do you good
Ain't nothing like a little hike through our old neighborhood

Remember back in grade school
We were 9 or 10
Nothing was real, everything was pretend

Tomorrow will be today
Is it is never the same
You have got to find your own path, learn your own name

ENDING:
It is hard to know
What you should really do
It is hard to know
What is really true
I'd be lying if i said
It was an easy thing to do
