about

Roy Ivy Chicago, Illinois

Before moving to Chicago, Roy Ivy was a choirboy for The Polyphonic Spree and the drunken oaf leader of the perpetually doomed The Tah-Dahs.

But after a move to Chicago and a heinous divorce, he began compulsively writing and sloppily recording the songs you're hearing on Bandcamp.

"Imagine Jonathan Richman going to the dark side and stealing your drink. That's Roy Ivy"

– David Fricke

Track Name: hard
what am i supposed to do?
i don't think i'm equipped for this.
you're pretty as can be, and prettier than that
why you gotta make this so hard?
it's obvious that i'm in love
i sleep with the phone beside my head
you're pretty as can be, and prettier than that
why you gotta make it so hard?

you can stay the night and still call me friend
but you're driving me crazy and it's gotta end
if you thought about me the way i thought about you
what am i supposed to do?

nobody makes me feel as good as you
nobody makes me feel good at all
and i feel uglier than can be, and uglier than that
why you gotta make this so hard
it's obvious i'm in love with you
you act like you feel the same way too
but you're flakier than can be, and shakier than that
why you gotta make this so hard?

you know i'd drop everything for you
but i can't be something you're gonna get around to
if you dreamed about me the way i dream about you.

what am i supposed to do?
