To me, he was just Dad, although I’m sure he had his own whole thing going on too. 😉 I was so very lucky to have him. 🙏 #father #fatherhood #dad via Instagram https://instagr.am/p/CrYgrrOux_-/

“I know the love that I deserve.”
Lucas Nelson has an amazing way of writing a song about one thing and then sneaking in a little mini-anthem about something else right in the middle. The mini-anthem hammers home the original point with an underlying truth.
It’s his jab-jab-jab-uppercut of songwriting. 🥊
On Find Yourself, Lucas rambles for a while about an unsatisfying relationship. Then the tone of the song briefly changes, and the mini-anthem bursts in.
I know the love that I deserve.
That’s the underlying truth to the rest of the song. It’s so beautiful and simple, it almost brings me to tears every time.
This song has some special meaning to me since I first heard it with a small but enthusiastic crowd at Lucy’s Friend Chicken in South Austin. Lucas Nelson sang it from the top of a picnic table as part of an unofficial SXSW performance. It sounded great, even without Lady Gaga. 😉
👉 Bonus: can you find the mini-anthem in Turn Off The News (Build A Garden)?

This little truck was trying to cross Bouldin Creek at its shallowest point, just downstream from Alpine Pond. I think it was on the way to South Congress for coffee. ☕️🤷🏻♂️ #toytruck #toy #river #austin #texas #atx #shotoniphone via Instagram https://instagr.am/p/Cq5bBsIugCJ/
