Liner Notes: 

first quick song of the summer

Lyrics: 

(c) 08.23.2019 time and ink

verse 1

you know
i'd really like an easy day once in a while
i'd really like an easy day
i'd really like something to make me smile
and something to say
'cause i'm afraid
the only easy day was yesterday.

verse 2

you see
i'd really like a bright sunrise once in a while
i'd really like a bright sunrise
i'd really like a break from the constant guile
and cacophony of catcall cries
oh i'm really afraid
the only easy day was yesterday.

CHORUS:

the only easy day-- that was yesterday
the only easy day-- that was yesterday
ain't that hard to figure out
won't you listen what i say?
the only easy day was yesterday.

----------------> SOLO

verse 3

i think
i'd really like to sit back clear for a while
i'd really like to sit back clear
i'd really like to ride for a country mile
with something to hear
but i'm afraid
the only easy day was yesterday.

CHORUS

-------------------> SOLO

CHORUS WITH SOLO OUT

A simple and catchy lyric, initially light but getting darker and more plaintive and that's a terrible thought, the "only easy day was yesterday". That'd make for a compulsive hook! (I regret I haven't been around much to read more! and that I have no time to do anything with the good lyrics I meet. Tempting but no time...)

I love the sentiment you convey here and you do it so effectively with these lyrics that seem so deceptively simple but are really wonderfully deep. This is a great writer and flows so well.

It's simple yeah. But not simplistic as it conveys a feeling known to all. Veryou good work
