The Avett Brothers - February Seven


I went on the search for something true. / I was almost there when I found you. / Sooner then my fate was wrote, / perfectly, it slit my throat and beads of lust released into the air. / When I awoke you were standing there.

I was on the mend when I fell through. / The sky around was anything but blue. / I found as I regained my feet, a wound across my memory / that no amount of stitches would repair. / But I awoke and you were standing there.

There’s no fortune at the end of the road that has no end. / There’s no returning to the spoils once you’ve spoiled the thought of them. / There’s no falling back asleep once you’ve wakened from the dream. / Now I’m rested and I’m ready, I’m rested and I’m ready to begin. / I’m ready to begin.

I went on the search for something real. / Traded what I know for how I feel. / But the ceiling and the walls collapsed, upon the darkness I was trapped, / and as the last of breath was drawn from me, the light broke in and brought me to my feet.

There’s no fortune at the end of the road that has no end. / There’s no returning to the spoils once you’ve spoiled the thought of them. / There’s no falling back asleep once you’ve wakened from the dream. / Now I’m rested and I’m ready, I’m rested and I’m ready to begin. / I’m ready to begin.
