Joybird - Six Weeks

Official Live Video out now:


Dear little lump of cells I don’t know you well enough
To introduce you to my friends or let alone myself
But I’ll do my best, baby

I grew up skinning knees on concrete driveways
Playing four square on the playground with the green trees above
and I knew lots of pain, but I knew love

And all I ever wanted was to sing along to CDs
In the backseat on a Walkman and I’d fly from my body
I was on the stage, weightless

But I never wanted to be known for what I did
I dreamed a dream of being what nobody expected
And here I am, pregnant

There ain’t no guarantees we’ll meet you they say
But if there’s a chance I’ll take it and I’ll sing for you today
Oh I’ll sing for you, baby

I met your daddy on a milk crate in a moving van
and I knew he had the stuff it takes to show up for his friends
And now so will you, baby

Our love was quiet but we heard it well
It called us up from where we were and let us be ourselves
And that’s all we need, baby

So dear little lump of cells, we can’t wait to know you well
To introduce you to our friends and raise a little hell
Oh we’ll do our best, baby

"...music that dreams and heightens and travels, music that lands with gentle force to disrupt the day, to make you pause and reflect."

"At times playful, at times immersed in longing, the album is fiercely hopeful and deeply communal."

-Abigail Zimmer (Poetry Editor, The Lettered Streets Press)
