Song of the Day #2,826: ‘Easy Way Out’ – Plain White T’s

plain_white_tsPlain White T’s are best known (perhaps only known) for their hit single ‘Hey There Delilah.’ Looking back at Song of the Day #38, when I first posted that song, it’s amusing to see that I discovered it in an episode of iCarly about a year and a half after it was released. Guess I should have been doing the Billboard thing back then.

‘Hey There Delilah’ is such a simple, beautiful song and the other tracks I’ve heard from Plain White T’s just don’t compare. Today’s SOTD isn’t bad, but it’s not in the same league as ‘Delilah.’

Do they have other gems buried in their relatively small discography? Or was ‘Delilah’ their one moment of inspiration? If you’re capable of greatness once, shouldn’t you be capable of greatness again?

I guess that’s the question every one hit wonder through the years has asked themselves.

Some people look at themselves
With such doubt, Some people
Just take the easy way out..
But I don’t want to..

Some people don’t care
Whats wrong or right
Some people just wanna
Walk through life
Some people just try to follow the crowd..
But I don’t want to..

They’ll never know what life is about..
So don’t be like them
Don’t take the easy way out
Don’t take the easy way out
Oh No
Don’t take the easy way..

Some people look at the
World with such doubt
(Don’t take the easy way..)
Some people just
Take the easy way out
But I don’t want to..

Some people don’t try
To be themselves
Some people wanna be
Somebody else
Some people don’t mind keepin’
Their voice down
But I don’t want to..

They’ll never know what life is about..
So don’t be like them
Don’t take the easy way out
Don’t take the easy way out
Oh No
Don’t take the easy way..

If you’ve got a point to make
Make it
If you’ve got something to say
Say it
Its your life so whatever you do
Don’t fake it
Don’t fake it

They’ll never know what life is about..
So don’t be like them
Don’t be like them..
Don’t be like them..
Don’t take the easy way out
Don’t take the easy way out
Oh No
Don’t take the easy way..
