The Underachiever

from by Dusty Stray



You wince when you win some
You loosen up when you lose
After all after a fall
You wonder what’s the use

You’re older and wiser
You’ve got lots going for you
And though things have changed
You do the same as you always do

And all of your troubles and all of your trials
Keep you sleeping all of the while
Each open door shows you some more
You turn around and follow the sound of the underachiever


from Light Years Away, released October 17, 2011

DUSTY STRAY features the alt-folk repertoire of Texan songster Jonathan Brown which delves into universal themes of unrequited love, heartbreak, loneliness and death but (almost) always with a small dose of hope and redemption.
