about

This double-sided single from Allison Crowe and Band draws both of its song tracks from the group's upcoming EP "Six More Songs" (out May 1st with a sister release, "Pillars" – from the same sessions). A blast of rock. A driving song with cans clattering behind. We shake off the confetti of existence and roll on.

lyrics

Happy People

Composed by Allison Crowe
As performed by Allison Crowe and Band

Sometimes
I really hate happy people
Sometimes
I resent the hell out of you
and sometimes, you know,
I really hate myself
a higher part of me
knows that this is wrong

And I wait
part of this to make sense
and I wait
until it's my turn to fight
and I know
I could be waiting a long time
but I wait for you
to tell me everything's alright

And I've walked
a million times beside you
and not once
have I felt worthy to
and I know
I probably have my own place
somewhere dark, somewhere cold,
somewhere
where no one can see me

And I wait
part of this to make sense
and I wait
until it's my turn to fight
and I know
I could be waiting a long time
but I wait for you
to tell me everything's alright

And I've tried
to purify myself
I've pulled the drain
so many times
and I watch
as the water strips from me
all my pain, all my love,
all that will come back tomorrow

And I wait
part of this to make sense
and I wait
until it's my turn to fight
and I know
I could be waiting a long time
but I wait for you
to tell me everything's alright

And I wait
for any of this to make sense
and I wait until
its my turn to take flight
and I know I could
be waiting forever
but I wait for you
to tell me everything's alright

‘cause it doesn't feel alright
Nothing feels alright
alright

So, is that alright
with you
