lyrics

Summer was a party and every night a fire
every night a little bit hotter, every night a little bit higher
I thought that was love when he gave me a cute little wink
I thought that was love by the old river rope swing
We kissed from dark till dawn without taking a breath
I thought he was touching my heart, but that was really just my chest.

You can't see a dead end until you're halfway around the bend
You can't see a dead end until you're halfway around the bend

They say everybody has a song in their strings
don't overplay it and don't over sing
I wrote it out in paper and pencil
I wrote it out careful and gentle.
I sealed it with my kisses; the best of my best
aiming at his heart but it bounced right off his chest.

You can't see a dead end until you're halfway around the bend
You can't see a dead end until you're halfway around the bend

The maples they are blushing a little deeper everyday
you can't keep leaves from falling; you get ready with your rake.
That long road out; it's all weeds and stones.
That long road out is still the shortest road home
Anybody who gives a damn makes some sort of mess
the first time a broken heart echoes in their chest.

You can't see a dead end until you're halfway around the bend
You can't see a dead end until you're halfway around the bend

about

Jes Raymond & The Blackberry Bushes Seattle, Washington

The Appalachian Mountains are the meeting place of the fiddle and the banjo, and musical culture permeates the entire length of the Mississippi River. The Blackberry Bushes are rooted in the rainy bottom of the Puget Sound, but their work is infused with the essence of the homes they wandered West from.
They have a playful and resonant sound with both twang and sophistication.
