“Joni”

Companion

Braids is from Montreal.  Wow, what a wonderful sound.  Somehow this trio reminds of Letters For Cleo.  They have a very distinctive sound.  Also, they are very secretive, and extremely good.  Check them out.  Live they are unbelievable.  Wonderful band.  A pop sound that totally kicks proverbial ass.  Oh, posted below are the lyrics of “Joni”, a great poetic song.

Are we ok? Are we afraid?

A river running inside of me

Of all the unknown along the way

Joni’s playing in the car on a highway

Saw a man driving with his front window smashed in

He was swerving with the wind and its guidance

If he felt loved would he be doing this?

We don’t know where we are going

I wanna be fine with not knowing darling

Can my home be here inside of me

Even when I’m on the other side of where I wanna be

What I wanna see in myself

Can’t ask nobody else to find

I am the day

Freer than I ever felt before

We don’t know where we are going

I wanna be fine with not knowing darling

Can my home be here inside of me

Even when I’m on the other side of where I wanna be
