7. So Easily

The last two songs on Easy Magic are reflections on my formative years playing music on the east coast, a time I will not soon forget.

The first of the pair centers around my solo project bandmates Sam and Dylan who answered my call when I had this idea for this project and brought with them to California a flood of memories.

 Today I woke up back in Boston
on that summer in back bay
I keep rewinding this old tape
so worn out it barely plays

I listen for the reason
that I keep writing on this page
when just as easily
there’s so much else that i could be

I could give up so easily now

But you showed up in California
man, I still can’t believe you came
we picked up where we left it
just some kids that won’t accept
they live too far away

I have worried and I’ve wondered
I know that nothing stays the same
but when we start to play
without words we seem to say 

I won't give up
I won’t give up so easily now

I won't give up
I won't give up
I won't give up
I won't give up so easily now

Sometime long after we are done here
when our signal starts to fade
I will look back on a spring day
I didn’t give up for a change
