about

I shut myself into my apartment alone on Christmas day to record this. A mandolin cover of an original song by Strand of Oaks.

lyrics

I was born in the middle,
Maybe too late, everything good had been made
So I just get loaded
And never leave my house

It’s taking’ way too long to figure this out
Know my name, know I mean it
It’s not as bad as it seems
And we try in our own way to get better
Even if we’re alone

I hate talkin’ about money
I don’t wanna talk about luck
I hate thinkin’ I’m not the same as I was
I lose my faith in people

Why even take the time?
You’ve got your problems
I’ve got mine

Know my name, know I mean it
It’s not as bad as it seems
And we try in our own way to get better
Even if we’re alone
The night was cold and black
But the sun was in my eyes
