lyrics

Climbing over ourselves
we’ve been looking for another view
One over the other
my shoulder your stool
I feel all your movements
only when I feel my own
When we follow our consciences
we allow ourselves to grow
and unfold

Chorus
We wrap our bodies around everything we hold
it’s hard to let go
Then wonder why we find it hard to unfold

Falling over our words
tripping on the wrong ones
we swallow our patience
and crawl on our tongues
All we’ve ever wanted
everything we know we can have
isn’t farther from here
than we are from where we began to unfold

Chorus

Reaching over our heads
we keep trying to find another view
One over the other
my shoulder your stool
I feel all your movements
only when I feel my own
When we follow our consciences
we allow ourselves to grow

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
