Track Name: It's Gonna Be Hard For You
He walks like a solider
Straight talker, a gold card heavy spender
Got a budget and a basket of things to see
But that soul for you is in me.

He makes you feel older
Folks say that he used to date Cinderella
Bought you two pairs of glass slippers, baby, just in case
But that soul for you is in me

It's gonna be hard for you
When I'm there
Like a ghost, haunting your headphones, passing through the air
It's gonna be hard for you
When I'm gone
And every day goes by...

I live in my own world
Make nothing for money, a daydream hustler
Not a loser, but I sure ain't exemplary
And that soul for you it's in me

I ain't no pretender
I maxed-out my gold card when I bought my Fender
Baby, all I got is music and groceries
And that soul for you, it's in me

It's gonna be hard for you
When I'm there
Like a ghost, haunting your headphones, passing through the air
It's gonna be hard for you
When I'm gone
And every day goes by...

Soul is a sign
Soul is a sine wave, waving goodbye
Goodbye from your heart, back to your mind
And every day goes by...

Standing you still
Soul is a pill
Slipped in the "time heals" drink
And the wine feels heavenly
Hearts don't trust in minds
'Cause every day goes by...

It's gonna be hard for you
When I'm there
Like a ghost, haunting your headphones, passing through the air
It's gonna be hard for you
When I'm gone
And every day goes by...
Track Name: Called To Tell You
I missed my father's 80th birthday
'Cause I was working nine to five
I didn't want to, but I was just too
Too busy thinking about
Cars, cash, and credit
How to establish myself a blanket
To secure me some savings for the years to come

I know nothing's ever over if I can prove
My intentions were good
So I search for something clever to say to you
But I can't
'Cause the action speaks for itself
Now I'm back to zero

I just called to tell you
Tell you I love you
Tell you I love you
I just called
Called to tell you, really nothing at all
You know how these things happen
I'm not quite sure what's been lacking
In my life
But I think it's likely it's you

I missed my first real anniversary
'Cause I was drinking by myself
Being an artist, yeah I was just too
Too busy dreaming about
Songs, fame, and romance
And "what a groovy night for a moondance"
I forgot, it's not groovy when you're all alone

I know nothing's ever over if I can prove
My intentions were good
So I search for something clever to say to you
But I can't
'Cause the action speaks for itself
Now I'm back to zero

I just called to tell you
Tell you I love you
Tell you I love you
I just called
Called to tell you, really nothing at all
You know how these things happen
I'm not quite sure what's been lacking
In my life
But I think it's likely it's you
Track Name: Brooklyn
Packed a bookbag
Socks and sneakers, and dress shoes just in case
Sky bound for my home town
To the north shore on a Sunday
Gave a kiss to my lady friend
She's a sweet talk and a sweet taste
Gave thanks for my family
Thanks to my friends, I'm getting shitfaced

This Long Island, it's a desolate place
A far cry from my first love, Michigan
My sweet talk and my sweet taste
A long way from the long lost dreams
Left broken on a California freeway
This Brooklyn
Oh, Brooklyn...

You make Detroit feel so far away
And I've only
Known you a day
(I haven't even known you a day)
True like New York, but you lie like L.A.
And I've only
Known you a day
(I haven't even know you a day)

Hopped a subway
Straight from Bleecker to the Park Slope real estate
Looked around for a sit-down brunch
With all-you-can-eat poundcake
Found a few, maybe six or seven
Free coffee and free champagne
I hadn't seen such a free time living
Since my sixteenth birthday

This Long Island, it's a desolate place
A far cry from my first love, Michigan
My sweet talk and my sweet taste
A long way from the long lost dreams
Left broken on a California freeway
This Brooklyn
Oh, Brooklyn...

You make Detroit feel so far away
And I've only
Known you a day
(I haven't even known you a day)
True like New York, but you lie like L.A.
And I've only
Known you a day
(I haven't even know you a day)
Track Name: Serena
The ring that I put on your finger is plastic
But it looks alright
I knew I'd give it to the right kind of singer
And I hope it didn't fit too tight

Oh, Serena
You sounded just like a dream I had
Where Ryan Adams and Stevie Nicks had kids
And they could sing like Aretha
Oh, Serena
I know it was just a dream I had
But I'd still love to see you
Down the road somewhere

I found the ring in a corner by a speaker
On a lonely night
I probably should have
Done my best just to warn you
If you wore it you'd be hooked for life

Oh, Serena
You sounded just like a dream I had
Where Ryan Adams and Stevie Nicks had kids
And they could sing like Aretha
Oh, Serena
I know it was just a dream I had
But I'd still love to see you
Down the road somewhere

I don't want to make you honest
I don't want to make you kind
I won't try to change you, I promise
I just wish you'd give me a try

Oh, Serena
You sounded just like a dream I had
Where Ryan Adams and Stevie Nicks had kids
And they could sing like Aretha
Oh, Serena
I know it was just a dream I had
But I'd still love to see you
Down the road somewhere
Track Name: You Could Never Know (BONUS DEMO)
It's just the circumstance
Left with no choice or chance
It's affection, but it feels like abusive, yeah
"It's a facade," you say
I just don't feel that way
That's the house you built with bricks of excuses, yeah

You could never know how hard on myself I am
You could never know what the feeling's like
You can look around:
Whatcha see when you look within?
You could never know what the feeling's like
'Till you try
'Till you try

Collect my dividends
On the time that I spent
Trying to save us while you spent all the interest, yeah
On the college degree
Thought that might set you free, but
Turns out that freedom's just the price of admission, yeah

You could never know how hard on myself I am
You could never know what the feeling's like
You can look around...
Whatcha see when you look within?
You could never know what the feeling's like
'Till you try
'Till you try

You can talk to me now
(I will listen if I can)
You can sleep with my friends
(It's probably for the best)
People all around will say:
"You're such a good example, man"
What will they be talkin' 'bout?


You could never know how hard on myself I am
You could never know what the feeling's like
You can look around...
Whatcha see when you look within?
You could never know what the feeling's like
'Till you try
'Till you try
