lyrics

Duet of Pearls inside our shell
Being pulled down in our diving bell
No time to speak or hesitate
Or look below to see how shallow or deep

Cuz the air above is getting thin
So take breath and let’s dive in
I will teach you how to swim
We’ll go our way and won’t look back
At least until our lungs collapse
If we stay we’ll die here just as fast
Why not give it a chance?

Duet of pearls inside our shell
Being pulled down in our diving bell
Our toes are cold from shallow seas
We’re too afraid to get wet up past our knees

But our patience now is getting thin
So take breath and let’s dive in
I will teach you how to swim
We’ll go our way and won’t look back
At least until our lungs collapse
If we stay we’ll die here just as fast
Why not give it a chance?

Below the waves we’re sinking down
Free of the weight that’d surely cause us to drown
Duet of pearls free if our shell
Til we return to our diving bell

Cuz the air above is getting thin
So take breath and let’s dive in
I will teach you how to swim
We’ll go our way and won’t look back
At least until our lungs collapse
If we stay we’ll die here just as fast
Why not give it a chance?

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
