Track Name: Difficult City
What keeps you from being happy
All the records that you want?
It's no crime to grow up, baby
Birds surround you when you walk

This is a difficult city
And every meaningful victory
Is meaning more in this town
This is a difficult city
Money ain't everything
Money keeps you around

Ground down, ground down, ground down, ground down
Ground down ground down, ground down

You only wanted to be happy,
Worshipped, pampered and adored
It's no crime to build an empire
It’s no crime to just be bored

This is a difficult city
And every meaningful victory
Is meaning more in this town
This is a difficult city
Winning ain't everything
Winning is sticking around

Ground down, ground down, ground down, ground down
Ground down ground down, ground down

I don’t know when I’ll have had enough of this place dear
I just know I haven’t had enough of it
I don’t know when I’ll have had enough of your face dear
I just know I haven’t had enough yet

Prove the minimum of brilliance
It will never be enough
Play every card that’s stacked against you
Winning’s learning to be tough

This is a difficult city
And every meaningful victory
Is meaning more in this town

This is a difficult city
Money ain't everything
Money keeps you around

This is a difficult city
Winning ain't everything
Winning is sticking around

This is a difficult city
This is a difficulty city
This is a difficult city
Track Name: Dogwood Blooms
Dogwood blooms
Can't come too soon
Can't stay too long
To gaze upon

Early spring flower
White as snow
The first to bloom
The first to go

Dogwood blooms
in every room
Painted huge
Carved, cartooned

Winter's long
It all feels wrong
Blooms without bark
On and on

Dogwood blooms
In another town
Time to go
When they fall down

Indented petals
Yellow centers
Au revoir
No one knows where I went
