lyrics

She’s fine and she knows
That she’s dying nice and slow
She’s a better kind, I’m the broken one but no one knows
I’m blessed, so I’m told
With a way to grow so old
I’ll be happy then as an American so-and-so
But the brunt of it
Isn’t happening like the way they want it to
I’ll just stick with it, cause that’s what weaker men always do
I’ll try, just for fun
To live with purpose, but when I’m done
I’ll be paralyzed, as an American so-and-so
I’m not going to be
Mourned so gracefully as the ones we adore
Cause I’ve always heard you should leave a crowd wanting more
I’ve known, better stories
Better futures, better ends
I’m not one of them, I’m an American so-and-so¬¬¬¬¬

about

Josh Kaufman Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

"Sweet-sounding... with hints of alt-country, The Beatles and Elliott Smith. Kaufman is a thoughtful songwriter, and his moves are intentional; he has the pop form down without following it to a formulaic end" - Pittsburgh City Paper
