1934 03:29
I had a Dream this morn’ That I’d seen your face before in 1934 When we were young and poor In the years before the war We barley had a home The soup we drank was cold The bread we ate we stole And the things we owned we sold Just to live another day Despite the hardships of the world We had our Love to keep us warm I did not have a ring But I gave you everything My seeds that we can grow My gloves to beat the snow Though our hands will still be cold But when I woke this morn’ To our room adorned in gold And our children pomp and spoiled And the looks you give me soiled As if asking me for more I long for 1934 When we had our love to keep us warm. I long for 1934 When we had our love to keep us warm.

We were alive Written by Daniel Watters & Reid Watkins We were alive and we should’ve tried But I know I’m better off this time Because of you Because of you We were alive and I know that I Would rather be damned if I do If I do fall into you But your eyes are blind to mine most nights But we should have tried When we were alive When We were alive Time after time Our schedules align And iridescent seem to shine Upon a truth while we groove Cuz your eyes Were alive With the lights of the night We should have tried when we were alive When we were alive Cuz your eyes Were alive With the lights of the night

The War 04:23
We've grown tired of the lives we cannot live with one another and the love we cannot give Search for our fathers that, we never knew Ask them the questions since we never had a clue Part of us died when we went and fought the war We never realized we'd lost it long before We'll search until our bodies turn to rust Until we're seen lyin face down in the dust We'll kill all those that step in our way Our love won't last another day Our love won't last another day Our love won't last another day Our love won't last another day Our love won't last another day We've grown tired of the lives we cannot live with one another and the love we cannot give

On the Glass that we sharing Our fingers did the writing Though your eyes were so inviting As you wrote upon the cup But the message you had written Was lost in condensation No chance for my translation Before your words fogged up I’ve used all my leads And tricks up my sleeve To make you love me Please say what you mean And please say it plainly I never know what you are thinking Your smile is so deceiving It makes me a believer Though I never seem to learn That you don’t mean what your saying In these endless games we’re playing The ice water is glazing So no more secret words I’ve used all my leads And tricks up my sleeve To make you love me Please say what you mean And please say it plainly Your cryptic demean is torturing me No clue what your thinking Please say what you mean And please say it plainly

When you put the weight of the world in my arms like you do Find myself immersed in a blue solitude without you I can’t do this all on my own with no one in my arms As long as you take care of me too we’ll get through like we do Let’s let go We’ll let the river take us where we need to go Time is now We’ll let the water wash away our every doubt Cuz if we don’t we won’t forgive ourselves I don’t know what I have to do To remind you that I need you I don’t know what I have to do To remind you That when you put the weight of the world in my arms like you do I find myself immersed in a blue solitude without you Let’s let go We’ll let the river take us where we need to go Time is now We’ll let the water wash away our every doubt Cuz if we don’t we won’t forgive ourselves Woy yoy yoy yoy yo When you put the weight of the world in my arms like you do Find myself immersed in a blue solitude without you I can’t do this all on my own with no one in my arms As long as you take care of me too we’ll get through like we do

about

Oak Creek Nashville, Tennessee

Originally from Arizona but in Denver since 2009, The Oak Creek Band may be releasing its “debut” but it’s hardly a new project. The band compares themselves to ’70s soft rock bands, but truth be told, they’re more modern than they think. Simultaneously indie and folky, with poppy choruses, the band nails a very fun album, even in its most tear-provoking elements
