Song of the Day: Council Grove

“OH, IS IT EVER REALLY PERFECT? / OR IS IT ALWAYS JUST THE SAME AS IT ALWAYS WAS?”

-BLUE WATER HIGHWAY

With plenty of nostalgia and catchy riffs, Blue Water Highway captures the bittersweet feeling of savoring the past in their latest single “Council Grove.” It’s indie rock with a folk edge to it that has a pinch of country flair – even if you’re not into country, “Council Grove” can easily pass through your ears as an indie rock song. The upbeat simplicity of “Council Grove” evokes a different time when things seemed less complicated and comfortably understandable. If you miss the good old days like when there was no pandemic and music festivals were booming, here’s a song to cheer you up: - Aupium.com

Lyrics

Here alone again on the highway

All the rush, the hurry

All the sound and fury

Rattling my mind

 

So I’m headed out to the heartland

For the fields of plenty

Though the hills of my memory

And I’m rolling back in time

 

Oh, tear my heart to pieces

Wanna go back to the way it was

Oh, was it ever really perfect?

Or was is always just

Council Grove

 

I hit an old trail, now a main street

With familiar glances

Tales of last chances

And driving further on

 

I see a silhouette of the old place

Full of dreams and memories

A little small and empty

Now that I am grown and gone

 

Oh, tear my heart to pieces

I wanna go back to the way it was

Oh, was it ever really perfect

Or was is always just

Council Grove

 

On a hilltop there’s an old bell

Must have pierced the quiet

Days of roar and riot

I guess they toll in every time

 

So I’m leaving now, I’ve got work to do

Moving on, returning

Through the grass fires burning

Like a new day in the night

 

Oh, tear my heart to pieces

Wanna go back to the way it was

Oh, is it ever really perfect?

Or is it always just the same as it always was?

Council Grove
