about

This is a recording of Tales of Young Robert rehearsing Stan Schaffer's lovely song "Honestly Convinced". This is not a demo, just a scrappy tape we made at rehearsal to help us remember our vocal harmonies. It's simply Stan playing the keyboard and singing lead vocal whilst the rest of us stand around him, singing 'live'. This recording is so rare that I doubt the rest of the band have even heard it yet.

lyrics

HONESTLY CONVINCED - words & music by Stan Schaffer
Something in the air; can you feel it there?
See it's making operating hard
In between the people and bright lights
Opens up the night, and suddenly there's nothing but silence
And you're here with me, willingly
Honestly convinced ourselves we're wrong

Letters on a page; impossible
Some coffee; try again
Fortune plays a part at the drugstore
Recognize and realize the distance
Who really knows, possibly so
We're honestly convinced ourselves we're wrong

Oh, I brought it on myself
Holding back, showing, losing 'could have hads'
With no way of knowing
(Who do you turn to when nobody listens?)
With no way of knowing at all
No way of knowing at all

Then suddenly, there's nothing but silence
And you're here with me, willingly
Honestly convinced ourselves we're wrong
Honestly convinced ourselves we're wrong
