Song Description

Musically, "Around the Bend" is meant to be both intimate, and sweeping in its scope. With big piano chords set against an ambient backdrop of synths and organs, there's an implied rhythm that seems to be counting down until the drums kick in later on in the song. Lyrically, the song touches on issues of insecurity and doubt that often creep into our everyday lives, but circumvents that uncertainty by instilling hope - that things will eventually fall into place the way that they're supposed to.

Story Behind the Song

"Around the Bend" was written just after I graduated from college. I found myself really unsure of where I was headed and what I wanted to do. Everything seemed like it was up for grabs, but at the same time like I was trapped. I was hoping the song could really capture that feeling - struggling between maintaining your balance and getting swallowed up in all the uncertainty.

Lyrics

I've been down on the bottom
Climbed my way to the top
I won't be forgotten
Cause I don't know where to stop

As the world keeps moving
In the palm of my hand
It's only time I'm losing,
Trying to find my way back, again

If I'm lost, I'm lost again
This time you don't have to remind me
If I'm lost, I'm lost again
This time you'll know where to find me

Cause I've been down so long,
I can't find my way back up -
I don't know where I went wrong
I don't know where it was

If I'm lost, I'm lost again
This time you don't have to remind me,
If I'm lost, I'm lost again
This time you'll know where to find me

Cause I'll be around the bend, around the bend

If I'm lost, I'm lost again
This time you don't have to remind me,
If I'm lost, I'm lost again
This time you'll know where to find me

Cause I'll be around the bend, around the bend
I'll be around, the bend, around the bend
