about

This track speaks for itself, I think. Let me know if it doesn't, though, and I'll see about fixing what might be broken. Just kidding- everything is baked-in already. Nothing to be done.

One fun tidbit was this song used to be called "Sometimes Folks Can Know". I felt the need to give the lyrics and title a tweak when pedal steel rapscallian Steve Norman kept laughing at it. When I asked why, he said it's because he kept hearing the lyric as "Sometimes Foreskin Gnome". Natalie Quist was in attendance and swooped over to salve what might've been a bruised ego, but I immediately sensed that Steve was too right to be dismissed.

Thanks to Natalie for the rescuing and to Steve for his awesome feedback.

lyrics

How are you doing today?
They don't ask me
They don't ask me
How is ol' What's Her Name?
They don't ask me
They don't ask me

Sometimes people know
Even though
Even though they don't
Sometimes people can tell
Even though
Even though you won't

How are you without me?
I'm not asking
I'm not asking
'Cause the answer hasn't changed
I'm not asking
I'm not asking
'Cause I see the apology
In your eyes
When you see the hope in mine
The Hope in mine

Sometimes people Know
Even though they don't
Sometimes people can tell
Even if you won't
