lyrics

THIS IS JUST TO SAY

Your baby brother’s getting bigger
Man, he’s growing like a weed
He’s asking questions I cannot answer
So I just tell him how we used to be

And your momma’s getting older
But she’s aging gracefully
Talking about another baby
Finding reasons to believe

And me, I’m writing you this letter
Between faith and misery
Man, I get lonesome here without you
Between what is and what ought to be

And me, I'm writing you this letter
Man, I been looking for some peace
Just can't stop myself from thinking
This isn't how we were supposed to be

words by Frank Cruz
music by Frank Cruz and Chris Dixon

Frank Cruz - vocals, keyboards, glockenspiel, drums
Chris Dixon - electric guitars

Recorded by Chris Dixon and Frank Cruz at The Lab in Oakland, CA
Mixed by Scott Goodrich at Nu-Tone Studios in Pittsburg, CA
