It's hard to explain...

lyrics

You know how you feel sometimes when you're walking outside
And the sun on your face makes you feel so alive
But you can't quite explain why you're buried alive by your pain

Then maybe you feel just like you're on top of the world
Like the time that you first met the guy or the girl
Of your dreams but it seems that they're taken now what can you say?

You just can't turn away

Then maybe you feel so down like you're ready to cry
With a smile on your face, but a tear in your eye
And it feels like you won't but you know that you're gonna survive

You're not moving on this time, you'll be staying behind
Cause you know in your heart that they're one of a kind
Sometimes fate can be great if you know that they're worth your time

You grit your teeth and try

It's hard to explain what's on your mind
What's keepin' you down, what's keeping you alive
They don't understand, they probably don't care
They don't even notice if you're even there
But somehow they're still right by your side

Grit your teeth and try

Then later you feel let down and you're ready to go
Like you're driving to work, but you're stuck in the snow
So it feels like the harder you work then the harder you'll cry

Then somehow it feels just like you've been drifting apart
Like the front of the line moves you back to the start
Like a dream, you can run, you can scream but you just can't hide

You wanna turn that wheel and slide

It's hard to explain what's on your mind
What's keepin' you down, what's keeping you alive
They don't understand, they probably don't care
They don't even notice the clothes that you wear
But somehow they're still right by your side


(It's hard to explain what's on your mind)
I just can't explain what's on my mind
(It's hard to explain what's on your mind)
What I once was is trapped inside
(It's hard to explain what's on your mind)
I can't escape so I'll just hide
(It's hard to explain what's on your mind)
My youthful innocence has died

about

Daniel Eischeid Edmond, Oklahoma

Nirvana, Weezer, Ozma influenced, melodic, power pop-rock music. Strong melodies, hooks, and good harmony-driven rock. My personal acoustic demos I record on the spot, to give to my band (Starry Skies) to work up drum and bass and guitar tracks for. Some make it to our band's lineup, some don't. They sound very different when finished. Now, full band (solo) demos as well! Please enjoy. ... more
