Story

The songs in this recording session (four in total) were all in their infancy and were as raw and tender as my psyche at the time. So on the last day of this rare and special trip home, a family friend said he'd be keen to record a few of my tunes. We ended up recording in a late night home studio session that went into the morning, up until I had to catch my flight out.

Bringing a few of these demos out again. My reminder of the kindness, understanding and love my family provided me in rough times. These first songs were stepping stones towards a different life, one lived authentically!

Lyrics

Easier That Way (L Diaz, 2007)

Saw You Hurting
But You Never Cried
And, I Saw How Poverty
Couldn't Steal Your Pride

And, You Never Complained
About Life Being Fair, No
Somehow You Knew That
It Would Just Turn Out Square

You Cared, You Even Called Me
Friend
Said You Loved Me
Even In The End

You Gave Me Peace
When I Felt Awkward And
Scared
And, You Sheltered Me
When No One Else Cared

Chorus:
Maybe, I Was Running So Far
So Fast
Thinking Our Kind Of Love
Wasn't Meant To Last

Maybe, I Didn't Hear What
You Had To Say
Maybe, Ties Are Broken
Easier, Easier That Way

So, Now We're Living
Different Lives
Never Sewed Together
Them Old Broken Ties

My Self-Destructive Anger
And, My Fierce Denial
Meant I'd Never Go
The Extra Mile, For You

Chorus:
Maybe, I Was Running So Far
So Fast
Thinking Our Kind Of Love
Wasn't Meant To Last

Maybe, I Didn't Hear What
You Had To Say
Maybe, Ties Are Broken
Easier, Easier That Way

Bridge:
Now Times Are Changing
And It's Me Who's Reaching Out
I Keep Coming Up Empty
And Know Exactly What It's
All About

Chorus:
Maybe, I Was Running So Far
So Fast
Thinking Our Kind Of Love
Wasn't Meant To Last

Maybe, I Didn't Hear What
You Had To Say
Maybe, Ties Are Broken
Easier, Easier That Way
