Probably my favorite of the tracks so far. I got huge Paul Simon vibes from this.


"This Life" is a lament disguised as a breezy, buoyant summer romp. The forlorn lyrics coupled with the jaunty instrumentation captures the fine line between feeling content and feeling forsaken. Sonically, it is very similar to Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl."


My computer looks like it's from 2010, and it's from 2019, so why the hell is it crashing all the time?
