So while we wait for our new album to go up for pre-sale on iTunes, we wanted to release a live video of us performing "It Did Me Well." We entered this video into NPR's Tiny Desk Concert contest, sponsored by Lagunitas Brewing Company. We filmed this at Kevin's house a few evenings ago. If we win, we'll get to travel out to Washington DC to play an actual Tiny Desk Concert.
This song is the title track off our upcoming record, and we couldn't be more proud. Here are the lyrics:
It Did Me Well:
Why can't you see It’s been a long night for me I’ve got a reason for it all right now Don't even try to talk me down They always told me that it all works out They always tell me but I know I simply know it isn't so My earthly dad he passed away When I was 12 Then cancer came took my health But I wouldn't let it wear me down So I did those drugs, And I gave'em hell I got the best of them I learned of God, it did me well yea it did me well. Why can't you see It's been a long time for me I’ve got a reason for it all right now Don't even try to talk me out Of packin' up and getting out of here Away from everything I’m told I’ll venture into the unknown They said there's a place for me here Should I return They washed my feet and they shared my tears But I didn't let'em change my mind So I hit the road ready to unlearn The garbage I’d been taught for years And oh my God It did me well, yea it did me well The pain returned to my stomach like I remembered it 3000 miles away from home The doctor seemed to change my mind So I flew straight back to the table They said that It was just a fright And Oh my God, you brought me back I think I'll stay a while But things can never be the same
