Joyce Manor – Don’t Try Lyrics

Joyce Manor – Don’t Try Lyrics

In your town on your street in each room of your house
In your bones and your teeth you’re so tired you can’t sleep

Sometimes I feel so far away
I missed you so much today

In your car the back seat the stale taste the dry heat
We might live we might die you can’t win so don’t try

Sometimes I feel so far away
I missed you so much today

Sometimes I feel so far away
I missed you so much today

Sometimes I feel so far away
I missed you so much today

Joyce Manor

Joyce Manor‘ is a band who have never relied on gimmicks. Since forming in Torrance, California, in 2008, the band—vocalist/guitarist Barry Johnson, bassist Matt Ebert, and guitarist Chase Knobbe—have built-up a feverish fanbase by writing catchy, pop-punk songs that seem straight-forward on the surface but teeming with carefully crafted nuances upon multiple listens.

This is undoubtedly true of the band’s sixth studio album 40 oz. To Fresno, an album that has songs that span the last eight years, yet comes together to form a cohesive album that marks the next chapter of Joyce Manor.

“This is an interesting record because the final track ‘Secret Sisters’ was actually a B-side from [2014’s] Never Hungover Again and ‘NBTSA’ is actually a reworked version of ‘Secret Sisters’ that barely even resembles the original song,”

Johnson explains. Although Joyce Manor were planning on taking a break prior to the pandemic, Johnson soon began writing to keep boredom at bay and much of the remainder of 40 oz. To Fresno came out of that period of focused songwriting.

Produced by Rob Schnapf (Elliott Smith, Tokyo Police Club) with Motion City Soundtrack’s Tony Thaxton on drums, the bulk of these songs were recorded in two separate sessions at Mant Sounds in Glassell Park, California. “The whole process was just really easy and it was also fun because as a band we hadn’t hung out very much lately,” Johnson explains.
