song title:I'm Not Easy
date: 2006-09-07
lyrics: 

Staring at the footlights
going blind, I think it might be time
I'm feeling a little tired.
But it's not easy, nor am I

Shadows in the streetlights
Making shapes [faces] I think they might be signs
Telling me to try
But it's not easy, nor am I

I'm not easy in the summer
And I'm not easy in the fall
I'm not easy in the wintertime
Come springtime I'm not here at all
I'm just trying to write my mortal name up on the wall
Trying to live a little longer
Trying to sing a little stronger
Trying to write my name up on the wall

Checkin' the rear-view
Seeing things I thought I'd left behind
They're heavy on my mind
And it's not easy, nor am I

I'm not easy in the summer
And I'm not easy in the fall
I'm not easy in the wintertime
Come springtime I'm not here at all
I'm just trying to write my mortal name up on the wall
Trying to live a little longer
Trying to sing a little stronger
Trying to write my name up on the wall

And it's not easy, nor am I
And it's not easy, nor am I
I'm not easy
