Because 02:55
There are times when I let my thoughts get the best of me now Holding my head over my heart, as if to throw the recipe out But then this comes back around and, well, I guess that’s destiny now Cause you can’t convince yourself once you know deep down. Because you give me good loving, baby keep it coming and Because you heal me I know life ain’t easy, at times it’s hard as could be But this love lasts forever, it's just you and me Well I remember the summer in Hermosa, when we found a place of our own You’d rise early in the morning, about an hour after I got home When we would give up our love for TV, and instead play records, even just for the week Losing touch of the outside world, where the Temptations were talkin' bout my girl Because you give me good loving, baby keep it coming and Because you heal me, I know life it ain’t easy, at times it’s hard as could be But this love lasts forever, just you and me Well I know we’ll have our reasons to pick at each other And find our ways to feel alone It’s only human to want some change But true love beats that game. Because you give me good loving, baby keep it coming and Because you heal me I know life ain’t easy, at times it’s hard as could be But this love's gonna last forever, it's just you and me You and me.

Reason 03:00
Whenever there’s a reason to fight it, we could leave it alone For every ocean of love, mountains of hurt come along But I do see forgiveness as a way to move on, If our hope won’t falter, we’ll find our way home Because it’s darkest before the dawn Not even time will last forever And even when it seems like the whole world’s gone wrong, I hope you will remember Whenever there’s a reason to fight it, we could leave it alone For every ocean of love, mountains of hurt come along Well I do see forgiveness as a way to move on, If our hope won’t falter, we’ll find our way home Cause there’s differences between us, but nothing love won’t mend And I don’t want to see you walk away again And there’s pain amongst the broken, but words they seem to mend And I don’t want to see you lonely my friend No, I don’t want to see you lonely again. Whenever there’s a reason to fight it, we could leave it alone For every ocean of love, mountains of hurt come along But I do see forgiveness as a way to move on, If our hope won’t falter, we’ll find our way home, If our hope don’t falter, we’ll find our way home, Our hope won’t falter, we’ll find our way home.

Finally 03:48
We had it all, yeah You wanted more and it tore us apart There’s nothing I would do to change you if that’s who you are But when we came undone, it felt like we’d just begun. Finally – hope this is what you wanted Finally – you’ll be out on your own Finally – I won’t be the one who loves you now It was you who let me go. Well the city lights, they stole her heart, said she’d rather burn out than to never be a star So she packed her bags, and hit the road, in search of love and rock n’ roll So high she never came down Finally – Just like you’ve always wanted Finally – you can be out on your own Finally – I won’t be the one who loves you, no It was you who let me go. You hold on to me, you say that we could maybe just take what’s left and make it better, baby But it’s so hard to mend a heart that’s broken when all your love was all I would ever need Finally – I hope this is what you wanted Finally – you’ll be out on your own Finally – I won’t be the one who loves you now It was you who let me go. You let this go.

It’s getting harder and harder to wake up in the morning. It’s getting harder and harder to wake up in the morning. I find myself feeling lazy, when I’ve been waiting for my baby She told me hun, I think you need a higher paying job But I am a musician, here with my guitar, I write some songs then I sing at the bars I had myself a salary when I wore a suit, but that’s not for me, Maybe that’s just for you. It’s getting harder and harder to wake up in the morning. It’s getting harder and harder to wake up in the morning. Well maybe it’s you, or maybe it’s me, or maybe it’s cause we were out past three Or maybe it’s the way that we’ve been running our lives, Cause keeping up can keep you down sometimes… It’s getting harder and harder to wake up in the morning. It’s getting harder and harder to wake up in the morning. Well maybe it’s you, or maybe it’s me, or maybe it’s cause we were out past 3. Or maybe it’s the way that we’ve been running our lives, Cause keeping up can keep you down sometimes… It’s getting harder and harder to wake up in the morning. It’s getting harder and harder to wake up in the morning. It’s getting harder and harder to wake up in the morning. It’s getting harder and harder to wake up in the morning.

You’re falling down, thought you had it all figured out Cause it felt like flying, till you reached the ground. Now here we are, we’re not sure whether this love is growing, Or if it’s all gone. But you must realize: Even on a day like this, we could still find a way You must realize: Even in a place like this, there will be room for change You must realize: Even at a time like this, maybe we could find the faith You must realize: Baby with a love like this, we will never fade away You had a way of thinking this was all a game, Until you found out just what was at stake. And all those dreams that were held inside were like a warning sign, no no Of just what you choose to believe. But you must realize: Even on a day like this, we could still find a way You must realize: Even in a place like this, there will be room for change You must realize: Even at a time like this, maybe we could find the faith You must realize: Baby with a love like this, we will never fade away How long will you wait? You can take your time, till it’s too late. When all our arms are stretched out, And all we have is hope. But you must realize: Even on a day like this, we could still find a way You must realize: Even in a place like this, there will be room for change You must realize: Even at a time like this, maybe we could find the faith You must realize: Baby with a love like this, we will never fade away

about

Last year, producer Warren Huart – who has worked with The Fray, James Blunt, and Augustana – heard Miso and offered to help him make a record. The result is Miso’s newly released self-titled debut EP.

The EP contains the sound of an artist arriving. It’s crisp and forthrightly poppy, with a little reggae sway here and there, but there’s also something slyly coherent going on. Pascal once wrote that philosophy is man’s attempt to be at home everywhere; Miso sounds like a man at home within his music.

-Easy Reader (Hermosa Beach)
