The Only Way It Gets Better

about

The bassline came first, then the idea that it should be an 8-minute, krautrock-inspired, half-instrumental epic. And it turned out pretty great. I spent easily more time on this song than any other in ApriltoApril so far, which I don't suppose means much of anything, but still. Awesome guitars courtesy of Bob Lautenbach, who deserves many plaudits for being patient with my vague recommendations and feedback.

lyrics

The only way this gets better is if you promise to do what's right.
If you promise to do what's right.
If you promise to do what's right.

I found you there, in the open air like always.
And I couldn't figure out why.
I couldn't figure out why.

We understand, you understand, I understand almost nothing at all.
And mostly, we don't even try.

But we move along, silent and strong, like a thousand waves hitting the beach.
With the dry sand just out of reach.
Just out of reach. So.

The only way this gets better is if I promise to do what's right.
If I promise to do what's right.
If I promise to do what's right.

And I ask a question and you ask a question to the open air all around us.
And each of our silent replies.
Each of our silent replies.

But every once in awhile. You see a smile.
And you try to do what's right.
You have to do what's right.
