–The Avett Brothers

Decide what to be, and go be it.

Always remember there was nothing worth sharing like the love that let us share our name.

You took my hand and held it up, and shot my arm full of love. And it spread, and it spread into the world.

Say yes we live uncertainty and disappointments have to be, and everyday we might be facing more. And yes we live in desperate times, but fading words and shaking rhymes. There’s only one thing here worth hoping for with Lucifer beneath you and God above. If either one of them asks you what your living of, say love; say for me love.

There was a dream and one day I could see it like a bird in a cage I broke in and demanded that somebody free it. And there was a kid with a head full of doubt, so I’ll scream til I die and the last of those bad thoughts are finally out.

My, my heart like a kick drum
My love like a voice

Well life is ever changing but I will always find a constant and comfort in your love. With your heart my soul is bound. And as we dance I know that heaven will be found

They say that life only grows short, I say the road only grows long.

The weight of lies will bring you down and follow you to every town ’cause nothing happens here that doesn’t happen there. When you run make sure you run to something and not away from ’cause lies don’t need an aeroplane to chase you anywhere.

My heart is dancing to a November tune. And I hope you hear it singing songs about you.

Now if I’m walkin’ through the rain and I hear you call my name I will break into a run without a pause.

She puts her hands against the life she had, living with ignorance, blissful and sad. But nobody knows what lies behind the days before the day we die.

I felt so sure of everything. My love to you so well received. And I just strutted around your town knowing I didn’t let you down. The truth be known, the truth be told, my heart was always fairly cold, posing to be as warm as yours. My way of getting in your world. But now I’m out and I’ve had time to look around and think and sink into another world that’s filled with guilt and overwhelming shame, boatloads of shame.

Love has been waiting, patient and kind.
Just wanting a phone call or some kind of sign,
That the one that she cares for, who’s out of his mind,
Will make it back safe to her arms.

And though we’ve never met, and though we’ve never kissed, I’ve never held your hand, but I’m good just dreaming that one day I can.

Hate stumbles forward and leans in the door – weary head hung, eyes to the floor. He says “Love, I’m sorry”, and she says, “What for? I’m yours and that’s it, Whatever. I should not have been gone for so long. I’m yours and that’s it, forever. You’re mine and that’s it, forever.”

Are you aware the shape I’m in? My hands they shake my head it spins. Ah Brooklyn Brooklyn take me in.

Are you feeling, feeling, feeling like I’m, feeling? Like I’m floating, floating, up above that big blue ocean. Sand beneath our feet, big blue sky above our heads, no need to keep stressing from our everyday life on our minds. We have got to leave all that behind.

I wanna fit in to the perfect space, feel natural and safe in a volatile place. And I wanna grow old without the pain, give my body back to the earth and not complain.

And everyone around me shakes their head in disbelief and says I’m too caught up. They say young is good and old is fine and truth is cool but all that matters is that you have your good times. But their good times come with prices and I can’t believe it when I hear the jokes they make at anyone’s expense except their own. Would they laugh if they knew who paid? Ain’t it like most people? I’m no different. We love to talk on things we don’t know about.

Young bride take my name, burn the questions burn the shame. You don’t have to live by them.

And yes we live in desperate times but fading words and shaking rhymes. There’s only one thing here worth hoping for. With Lucifer beneath you and God above – If either one of them asks you what your living of, say love, say for me love.

My dream of all dreams and my hope of all hopes is only to tell you and make sure you know, how much I love ya’ and how much I always did.

Bluebirds can’t fly without their wings and when we put them in a cage the world can’t hear them sing, so selfish when greed sets in.

I never lived ’til I lived in your light, and my heart never beat like it does at the sight of you baby blue.

Love sings a song as she sails through the sky. The water looks bluer through her pretty eyes.

Her voice down so low I barely hear her, but I know what she’s saying, I understand because my heart and her’s are the same.
