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

Track Name: 1934
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.
Track Name: We Were Alive
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
Track Name: The War
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
Track Name: Say it Plainly
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
Track Name: Weight of the World
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
