This song is the third single from the docu-pop podcast series The Band That Never Was, a memoir of a failed band packed with humor, stories, and lessons learned.


(copyright 2012 Jeff Simms, Michael Montgomery & the matthew show)

Just be comfortable in today’s clothes
Don’t lose sight of that grin
Sometimes the days seem so long and lonesome
Sometimes they're a little grim

Remember that love you create inside
Where all your passions like to run and hide
Let it carry. Let it carry you through
Those grey days that seem to sneak up on you

And when the night comes, you’ll remember the day
And when all is said and done, you’re still the same

No one knows what it means anymore
Or what good it will do
Just staring down at the mileage logs
Next to a picture of you

I found something, and you did, too
It hit the air and then died
Wrapped its bones in this letter today
Hoping you would know what it should say
