Head full of doubt/Road full of promise.

The Avett Brothers, I and Love and You

Where are my Avett Brothers fans at?

“I and Love and You” is an amazing song off this album.

But my favorite song is “Head full of Doubt/Road full of promise.”

As a young man, this song speaks to me. I connect with it on another level. I feel what it’s saying.

Lyrics:

There’s a darkness upon me that’s flooded in light
In the fine print they tell me what’s wrong and what’s right


And it comes in black and it comes in white
And I’m frightened by those that don’t see it

When nothing is owed or deserved or expected
And your life doesn’t change by the man that’s elected


If you’re loved by someone, you’re never rejected
Decide what to be and go be it

There was a dream and one day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in
And demanded that somebody free it


And there was a kid with a head full of doubt
So I’ll scream ’til I die
And the last of those bad thoughts are finally out

There’s a darkness upon you that’s flooded in light


And in the fine print They tell you what’s wrong and what’s right


And it flies by day and it flies by night
And I’m frightened by those who don’t see it

There was a dream and one day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in
And demanded that somebody free it


And there was a kid with a head full of doubt
So I’ll scream til I die
And the last of those bad thoughts are finally out

There was a dream and one day I could see it
Like a bird in a cage I broke in
And demanded that somebody free it


And there was a kid with a head full of doubt
So I’ll scream ’til I die
And the last of those bad thoughts are finally out

There’s a darkness upon me that’s flooded in light
In the fine print they tell me what’s wrong and what’s right


There’s a darkness upon me that’s flooded in light


And I’m frightened by those who don’t see it
