about

This is one of the only songs where I wrote a snippet of lyrics (in this case the first two lines) and then ACTUALLY came back to it later and made a whole song out of it. One of my favourites.

lyrics

I quit, but I got no withdrawal
The bank said that I had "Insufficient Funds"
So that's it, I'm on my own from now on
Nothing to give - just trying to live with sufficient fun

Well it's not that hard
But hey, it's not that easy
Just gotta start

I awake, but sometimes, hey, I sleep in
so mid-afternoon, I feel kinda doomed, 'cause the day's half gone
I wonder—will it take, immense determination
to get to a state, where I'm never late, and I always know what's going on?

Well it's not that hard
but it's not that easy
just gotta start...

[chorus:]
'Cause you know that phrase "easier said than done"
Doesn't have to apply to everyone
If I decide that I like action
instead of just conversation
And spend my days getting fun things done
and proudly say to everyone,
"I get satisfaction from my life
and I've only just begun."

[instrumental]

I try, but still sometimes I mess up
Still I know success, comes right after mess, if I can learn from it all
I fly, but only in the most figurative sense
so why be all scared, if I'm unprepared, and I start to fall...

'cause the ground is not that hard
But hey it's not that easy
Just gotta start...

[chorus]
