lyrics

She's a fool hearted, try and try harder,
a winter day in her summer dress.
She paints stars on her walls, got a good friend she calls
but she is sometimes uneasy nonetheless
busy and bored in an everyday trance
she can slap on a smile, she can fake it through the dance.

He's a fool hearted try and try harder
asking those cards to guide him.
Sometimes their advice, doesn't sit quite right
probably due to that secret that he is hiding.
He can pinpoint the difference between luck and chance
He can slap on a smile, he can fake it through the dance

He says and she says and he says again
he's doing cartwheels and she calls that friend
he says and she says and he says again
then everything's quiet until someone bends...

They were fool hearted try and try harders
aiming to belt out the high notes
making all the mistakes, all the squeaks and the breaks
but they throw back their heads, and let it cry folks.
They find themselves happy in dark circumstance
when they slap on a smile, when they fake it through the dance.

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.
