Hard Rhyme

from by Matthew Colin



All tracks written and recorded by Matthew Coin at 'home' in Mardi Bycroft's garage where he lived circa 2016-17. A space affectionately known as 'The Cabin"


Passing fast and heavy on your mind
It's hard to shake the losing hand of time
Days burn out, and end up glowing in the night
And the constant revolution rages
You and me got the same old changes
Behind the bottle and on the band room stages
Where the love is real

There's a living somewhere that you gotta find
No steady path between the falling or the climb
The wind knows you're only dust
And keeps blowing all the while
But push on friends your light is only fading
You and me got the same old changes
It's in your arms and on your close up faces
Where your love is real

And it's a long…. it’s a long hard rhyme, most of the time.
Somehow worth the fight.

I got a disposition towards pissin on my fire
Hope sparks a little, tries to kindle some desire
But I'm a foolish heavy soul, dreams still dancin in my eyes
Just another slow train rolling off the rails
You and me got the same old changes
I'll be here when you run out of places
Where your love is real
