I wanted out again, wanted you as a friend But I did not listen to my intuition I don't know why I didn't speak my mind There is no excuse for how I treated you I should have done things right, should have left before It was wrong to leave unfaithfully I feel like I left everything a mess You deserve someone who is a better person Never gonna be no one like you Never gonna be no one that true
2.
You know the way to my heart Without trying to hard You think before you speak I like the way you dream We believe in the same things We like to do anything We know what life is about Deciding whether (when) you're in or out I'm scared I'll give it all To you, I always do But you don't pressure me to I think we're on the same page We believe in the same things We like to do anything We know what life is about Deciding whether (when) you're in or out
3.
I want you to know that you're so important to me Someday soon we can be friends, you'll see Every time I see you I feel so sad It just takes me back to when it went bad Now I'm alright It's been some time But I still don't know How to make things right I can't think of a time as worse As the time I made you feel so mad I didn't get to see you cry I feel guilt thinking of you tears & What kills me Is not knowing What you went through When you were alone

The Letter 04:03
I was just sitting around I decided to clean out my things Doing this relaxes me I didn't know what I would see While I was sorting through my things I flipped through a notebook I found In it was a letter from you It almost broke my heart in two & it said "Baby, I was lying in bed and I saw this notepad on the nightstand and wanted to write a song or doodle I guess I ended up being too consumed and distracted with thoughts of you and us I love you so much" I know this is for the best But sometimes I wish we could just talk We were so close for so long I didn't get to say goodbye "Baby, I was lying in bed and I saw this notepad on the nightstand and wanted to write a song or doodle I guess I ended up being too consumed and distracted with thoughts of you and us I love you so much"

I'll Be Fine 03:29
What do I have To do today I can't finish Anything I hate waking up I'd rather just sleep Than face what I have to do My time is easy But I make things hard Why can't I do What I know I can do I love when there's nothing to do I like just sitting and watching movies I don't know What I'm doing I don't know What I'm still doing in this place I need to break away I know that There is something more for me I just have to trust myself I just need to believe That I will shine I'll be just fine I'll do anything I can think or dream & I know I'll be afraid sometimes But I'll fight right through it I'll never quit
7.
I'm Sorry 04:33
I can't believe the things I've done I wish I could go back in time I should have thought that this would mean We'd never be as close again I think that I should have tried To be more honest every night I wish I could somehow relay how sorry I am feeling today We won't ever be this close again Trust is a fragile thing We won't ever be this close again Trust is a fragile thing
8.
The Melody 02:41
It's hard for me to write, arrange words that satisfy My ideas of what is good in someone else's eyes If the lyrics are true to me I've decided to let it be I like to write what comes and when it comes not to disagree Focus on the melody, let the music speak Slam the door on all of your fears and insecurities If it's good enough for me it doesn't matter if no one sees Alike minds might find it and take what they want from it
9.
Why do you do this to me? I wish you'd treat this more casually You know that I see right through you & you know that you're my go to I know you'd love me forever But I don't like when you show it Pretend that you don't love me & I'll run, I'll run right to you When you're out of reach You're someone I miss When I'm alone with you I don't feel it Don't waste your love Don't be sweet I will be your queen If you treat me mean

about

 Hazy existentialism can transform a pretty melody into a guilt-ridden Dear John Letter. It can take the bratty simplicity of licking a lollipop on the boardwalk, whistling "Les Sucettes,” and make it as heavy as clouds pillowing the California sun. Two years ago, Justine Brown—the 28-year-old drummer of dream-pop duo Summer Twins—began to explore the anxiety associated with regret. She was lovesick, secluded in her family home in Riverside, California. She had an electric guitar and a shoebox filled with painful memories. She referred to her project as “Easy Love.” 

    “I betrayed the person I loved the most,” she says. “Being honest with him about it was heartbreaking, but also freeing.” Released from the shackles of regret, Easy Love became her musical wings. After spending half her life collaborating with her sister, for this project Justine played all the instruments and provided all the vocals.The result was an LP of 9 tracks recorded and engineered by Eric Penna throughout 2016. Most of the songs were recorded in her bedroom with guitars strewn across the bed, a vintage microphone set up next to her dresser, and an amp in the closet. Penna engineered and recorded Easy Love by exploring ‘90s Rock and 60’s French Pop —guided by Brown’s self-referential lyricism. On “No One Like You,” her lithe falsetto floats over a surfy track that’s groovy, above the waves, but dark once you swim under the current of regret found in her words: “There’s no excuse for how I treated you. I should have done things right.”

    Easy Love transforms Brown’s heartache into life-affirming guitar rock. It’s head bobbing "yeah, yeah,” a strictly Californian variety. Melancholic, at times, on unplugged tracks like “The Melody.” It’s also deliciously simple. “I will shine, I’ll be just fine,” she sings on the track “I’ll Be Fine,” which blends the twee K Records vibe, with distorted ‘90s grunge-pop. On the album’s emotional ballad, “Love Letter,” Brown tells the story of reading an old letter from her former lover. It’s a dreamy waltz through a brokenhearted girl’s messy bedroom, where solitude breeds uneasy romance and ‘60s yé-yé naivety.

Easy Love (self titled) will be released on February 3 by California labels Burger Records and Lolipop Records. The Easy Love live band consists of Justine Brown (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Chelsea Brown (harmony vocals and lead guitar), Natalie Burris (bass), and Dave Jauregui (drums). Justine and Chelsea are also the core members of Summer Twins (Burger Records).
