Don’t Be So Easy On Yourself

Trying to sum up our risky business, my Dad used to quote President Nixon: “Failure isn’t falling down. Failure is not getting up after you’ve fallen down.” Jason Isbell put it another way in this song against self-pity.

Don’t be so easy on yourself (don’t be so easy on yourself)Don’t be so easy on yourself (don’t be so easy on yourself)Rearrange the voices in your headRemember what they saidDon’t be so easy on yourself
