I’ve been aware of The Avett Brothers for years without really getting into them.
Songs like Tell The Truth are why they are so interesting.
(I can make my mother, my father, my sister, my brother, my lover, my neighbor, my friends all happy
Give of myself whatever they ask
But without this single truth it is only emptiness that I cast
A happiness that will not last
But I’m not here for that for what does happiness help without this single truth given to thyself)
I was the coward
I strangled your heart
I wanna make amends, but where do I start?
Tell the truth to yourself and the rest will fall in place.
