From the recording Shallow Roots

Lyrics

Why do this silly thing
Playin' with the stings
Sharing all your feelings
Maybe it's because internalizing the pain
Is far too difficult to sustain
And when there's nothing left to gain
I burst out and I start singing

Though the subject is sad
Singing these songs makes me feel much better
Vocalizing the memories keeps me bundled up and warm
Like a cozy sweater in the freezing weather
This music is my medicine when I'm all out of weed
And my mind can't stop reminiscing
I make my songs though I tell myself
They have no influence, they won't change a thing
Deep down inside I think that there's a chance
I guess that's why I sing

That's why I do this silly thing
Playin' with the strings
Sharing all my feelings
I do it because internalizing the pain
Is too fucking difficult to sustain
And when there's nothing left to gain
I burst out and I start to sing
Just what I'm thinkin'...
