Psalm/Psong for April 23 – “Rivers and Roads” by The Head and The Heart

What better day to post something by a band called The Head and The Heart than in the space between Good Friday and Easter? The lyrics are a good fit, too.

This video is another in the series of bike shop concerts that were part of SXSW 2011. I think the visuals of the setting add a whole new layer of meaning to the song. Also, I love when the drummer starts using a maraca instead of a drumstick.

Lyrics to “Rivers and Roads”:

a year from now we’ll all be gone
all our friends will move away
and they’re going to better places
but our friends will be gone away

nothing is as it has been
and i miss your face like hell
and i guess it’s just as well
but i miss your face like hell

Ohh, ohh, ohh

been talkin’ ’bout the way things change
and my family lives in a different state
and if you don’t know what to make of this
then we will not relate
so if you don’t know what to make of this
then we will not relate

Ohh, ohh, ohh

rivers and roads
oh rivers and roads
rivers ’til i reach you

    For one whose original Missouri family of six lives in Florida, Kansas, Massachusetts, Missouri and New York, with grandkids in California, Colorado, and Pennsylvania, I can relate to the lament, “and my family lives in a different state…”
    So I guess I can, with some effort and imagination, relate…
