lyrics

I’ve been under water so long
all I see is blue
My boat capsized at midnight
now it’s half past noon
And I’m holding the same breath
And I’m holding the same breath

I hear my baby calling from the shore
a thousand miles away or more
She’s leaning over the ocean
crying into the tide
Watching her tears fall
while I keep waiting for my body to rise

Salt water float me to my coast
Bring me home
Don’t let my soul seep out my bones
Bring me home

I’ve been drifting, tumbling so long
that I’ve forgotten the sun
But I caught the wind
as I slipped into the ocean
And I won’t let it blow out of my lungs

I breathed the wind, I breathed the wind in
I breathed in the wind
And I’m holding the same breath
I’m holding the wind, holding the wind in
I’m holding in the wind
And I’m holding the same breath

Salt water float me to my coast
Bring me home
I won’t let my soul seep out my bones
Bring me home

I’ve been under water so long
all I see is blue

Shady Maples debut 2012 album is soulful and explosive, gritty and melodic. They wrote, arranged, road tested, produced and released it independently, demonstrating influences from rock to Americana, reggae and Latin. It rises to deep heights and settles into a spacious melodic equilibrium. The SF Chronicle describes Owen Roberts' lyrics as "visceral" and the sound as "perfectly Californian." ... more
