the avett brothers - starlight theater
We're a bit late to the game on being fans
of the amazing Avett Brothers,
but I have to say they are my new favorite musicians.
Thought provoking, honest lyrics combined with a folksy sound
backed up by a banjo, cello, bass, violin, organ, piano and guitar.
One song can be deeply melancholy
and the next so fun.
It was a treat for Jesse and I to see them in concert last week.
It had been two decades since I had last stood for an entire concert!
Below are some lyrics as a tease
if you're interested in listening to them.
Wouldn't it be fine to stand behind
The words we say in the best of times
It must be winter in my heart
There's nothing warm in there at all
I missed the summer and the spring
The floating yellow leaves of fall
from Winter in My Heart
She keeps it simple
And I am thankful for her kind of lovin'
'Cause it's simple
from January Wedding
Three words that became hard to say
I and love and you
from I and Love and You
Ain't it like most people? I'm no different
We love to talk about things we don't know about
from Ten Thousand Words
When I'm in my sweet daughter's eyes
My heart is now ruined for the rest of all times
There's no part of it left to give.
from A Father's First Spring
If you finally stop caring
Just don't go and tell someone that does
Cause even though I know there's hope in
Every morning song
I have to find that melody alone.
from Morning Song
