about

Of all the songs I've ever written, I think this one might be up there in my top three, as a personal favorite. There's also something so simple about the production, and the sparse instrumentation, that really lets the song breathe...

I hope you enjoy it!

lyrics

-Take An Educated Guess-

Most of what they taught me, I've forgotten.
Then again, what I learned was easy to forget.
And all my poetry is fantasy.
I believe, sometimes it is better to pretend,
that what is really happening, won't make me cry.
I'm telling you those tears will get you by.
They get you by.
See yourself through someone else's eyes...

When the teacher spoke I did not hear a word.
Then again, what McGinty said was easy to ignore.
Now all my poetry is fantasy.
I believe, sometimes it is better to pretend,
that what is really happening, won't make me cry.
I promise you those tears they get you by.
They'll get you by.
See yourself through someone else's eyes...

Why don't you come and find me?
Why don't you come and find me?

Take an educated guess...
Take an educated guess...
Take an educated guess...
