"HEY, ERIN (THANK YOU)" [2012]


Hey, Erin

I wrote you this tune

To say thank you

For fixin’ my blues

Oh, thank you

Hey, Erin

Thank you

‘Cause some days

I feel so small

And I’m not saying

I need to feel tall

No, I’m just saying

I don’t want to feel lost

 

And if that sounds vain

Then I’m vain

But I’d rather be vain

Than insane

Talking to myself

 

Hey, Erin

I wrote this for you

And I hope it’s

Not too out of tune

And I hope it

Can help you

When you’ve got the blues, too

Hey, Erin

You’re ten hours away

But should you ever

Need a warm place to stay

We’ve got roaches

But you’re welcome here any day

 

I’m no Conor Oberst

No rockstar

Maybe one day

I’ll be where they are

But till then

I’m content

Just singin’ your song

 

I said I’m no Conor Oberst

No rockstar

Maybe one day

I’ll shred a guitar

But till then

I’m so happy just strummin’ your song
