From I’m Wide Awake It’s Morning (2005)
While 2005 saw the release of a “techno” Bright Eyes album, it also saw the opposite. Land Locked Blues, and the other songs on this album, were of a stripped-down, folky (bleeding slightly into country and western), and generally warm manner. This song mosies, as one would say, with clever turns of phrase and brilliant song-writing.
Notable lyric: If you walk away, I’ll walk away / First tell me which road you will take / I don’t want to risk our paths crossing someday / So you walk that way, I’ll walk this way
