G sharp is easy

about

You don't have to wine and dine it.

Recorded in a very echo-y room I was renting in Humboldt Park that summer.

lyrics

say what you want
I'm not much for old haunts
sympathy looks ghoulish on you
it's getting late
pointing fingers at fate
never puts me in the mood
nobody ever tells me
when I'm going too hard or when it's never enough
wait until the gears shift, wait until the teeth click
somebody throw a sucker punch

true love is easy
but I can clearly surmise
it's just a theory
the glazed-over look in your eyes
keeps reappearing
you swore, you crossed your heart
true love is easy
but everything else is hard

it's 10 to 1
we might be having fun
if fun is a desperate escape
some other bar
then I'm driving your car
I'm pretty sure there's videotape
nobody ever told me
there wasn't anything to look forward to
wait until the last straw, wait until the cracked jaw
swings on the hinge of a missing tooth

true love is easy
but I can clearly surmise
it's just a theory
the glazed-over look in your eyes
keeps reappearing
you swore, you crossed your heart
true love is easy
but everything else is hard

you said it was a fucking walk in the park
seems more like a shot in the dark

true love is easy
but I can clearly surmise
it's just a theory
the glazed-over look in your eyes
keeps reappearing
you swore, you crossed your heart
true love is easy
but everything else is hard
