lyrics

Bending backwards, Straight as nails
A crooked image of myself
Over-easy evergreens, growing sideways through the trees
So take what you want from me
Summer has come too early
The fires are burning, they want me to leave

“Run for cover, hideaway”
‘There’s no hope for you to stay”
Here in theory, let’s find a way
But its hard to tell which way’s sideways

So tell me your secrets
I have no need for reasons
You dance on the breeze’s
You want me to leave

So let me live tonight, I want to burn out bright
So if we lose the fight, at least we know we tried

One direction, over grown
Reaching upwards from our home
Undercover, listen please
Growing sideways through the trees

So take what you want from me
Summer has come too early
The fires are burning, they want me to leave

So let me live tonight, I want to burn out bright
So if we lose the fight, at least we know we tried tonight
I want to burn out bright, so if we lose the fight, at least we know we tried

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
