    Here's a brand-new original song. This one was inspired when I was listening to Tom Waits' debut album "Closing Time" from 1973. I was thinking about all of the ways the music industry has changed since then, and that's what brought about this song.

    Tom Waits is a hero to many singer-songwriters out there, and if you're not familiar with his music, I strongly encourage you to look him up here on YouTube. Full lyrics are below. Btw... the 2nd verse is a true story. I did stand next to Tom Waits when I was about 5 years old. I think his kids went to the same school as me, but I didn't know them.

    Tom Waits
    (Matthew Jordan & Robert Strauss)

    Well Tom Waits once sang
    Bout his Ol' 55
    And the cars they may change
    Yeah but people still drive
    And some drive away
    From the things they love most
    Well it don't make no sense
    But that's life I suppose

    Well Tom Waits once stood
    By a boy playing ball
    And I didn't much notice
    I just thought he was tall
    But my father said son
    You'll remember some day
    It means more here and now
    Than I ever could say

    CHORUS:

    And my voice ain't like whiskey
    In a smoke-filled saloon
    But I'm lit by the glow
    Of that same grapefruit moon
    And I may never quite
    Have his way with a tune
    But that don't mean it's easy
    To give up too soon

    And Cleveland came calling
    It was right that they would
    And some more people know now
    That's all well and good
    But I still got this dream
    That I'll shake the man's hand
    In a dive after midnight
    By an old baby grand

    CHORUS

    No my voice ain't like whiskey
    In a smoke-filled saloon
    But I'm lit by the glow
    Of that same grapefruit moon
    And I may never quite
    Have his way with a tune
    But that don't mean it's easy
    To give up too soon
    Yeah God knows it's a crime
    When you give up too soon
