  1. The New Twenty

From the recording Happy Ending (2016)

The peace you make...letting go somewhat of ambition and singing songs for yourself, for your boys, and for the love of your life, taking the long road, making songs meant to carry and convey the visceral lessons and deep spiritual wisdom of your burnished humanity, is a profound maturity whose long-suffered and hard-won humility transforms your work and transports your talents into great artistry. - Ethan

Lyrics

I used to get drunk, I used to get high
I was too young to think, I was too scared to try
Sometimes you have to do something five times to do it once

Now I’ve told ‘ya, sister soldier
I’m on a mission to be more bitchin’
Sometimes you have to hear something five times to hear it once

I’m aware that a dream come true can be a nightmare
I’ve got this piece inside of me that doesn’t fit anywhere

I’ve got this crazy side of me, you’ve got this crazy side of you
I don’t know what I’m gonna say, you don’t know what you’re gonna do

We cannot wait another day for other people to decide
We gotta go another way and let this bitterness subside
Let this bitterness subside

I haven’t said much lately ‘cause I’m not sure what to say
And I just might say it wrong and you won’t hear me anyway

But there’s one thing that I’m sure of, I was wiser in my youth
And somewhere between what you think and what I think lies the truth

I’m aware that a dream come true can be a nightmare
I’ve got this peace inside of me that doesn’t fit anywhere

They say forty is the new twenty, man I hope that isn’t so
‘Cause I’m so close to unknowing, all the things I shouldn’t know

They say forty’s the new twenty, man I hope that isn’t true
‘Cause I’m about to see you from a different point of view
A different point of view
