lyrics

You and I were both alight at the start of this escade
We'd only seen what we'd seen before
We were blindly unafraid
Took that ride up the river valley in your old rusty Nova
I fell for sure for that blue bandana
you wore for morning yoga.
We found flowers in a backyard of weeds- a minute left to play
and we wouldn't take defeat.

Walk around the block again in the break in the rain
cover up all those spots we missed with a new coat of paint
You pretend to know whats wrong, I pretend to know whats right
It's harder tan we thought to keep it all aligned

Paper Roses and an old time band
we put the sweet in with the salt and we took the chance
we lit the lanterns and we watched them rise
one got caught in a maple tree and the rest got to the sky

Maybe this parade's amiss; maybe those are broken clocks
maybe we could find a hundred reasons why we ought to stop
no one ever promised we'd make it without scars
I want to sleep up in the mountains, but I'd settle for my own backyard

Paper Roses and an old time band
we put the sweet in with the salt and we took the chance
we lit the lanterns and we watched them rise
one got caught in a maple tree and the rest got to the sky
and I set that last one free, all cause you helped me reach.

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.
