Oaks Songtext
There were days from last week I couldn't quite complete
Skipped ahead to the next afternoon
Swept through the sheets, slept in my shoes
Hung around with a house of balloons

Keep the speed steady, hold the wheel straight
We scratch and we scrape, we're scared then we're brave.
The kids on the corner making eyes at the cars
If you want to saved, all it takes is a wave

There were kids at the car wash that said they could get it
Gave them half but they never came back
Drove by so slowly, it felt like we're floating
An inflatable raft

Our bodies are stoplights, our minds are the streets
We scratch and we scrape, we're scared then we're brave
The kids on the corner making eyes at the cars
And if you wanna to saved all it takes is a wave

Sarah, I still think that you are so beautiful
I'm sorry that you don't feel the same way as me
We spent so much time in this town driving slowly
We spent so much money on things that didn't stay

So call for a taxi. Slide into the backseat
It rolls like a glass bottom boat
The kids on the corner when they reach out the window
Their arms look like limbs from an oak

Keep the speed steady. Hold the wheel straight
I swear I feel each little sway.
Our minds are the windows. Our bodies are screens
We scratch and we scrape and we dream

Dream of the limbs of the trees
We dream of the views from the boats
Of mountains all covered in oaks
And we hope
As we hang from the limbs of the trees
We cling to the rails of the boats
The mountains all covered in oaks
And we dream
We dream of the limbs of the trees
We dream of the views from the boats
Of mountains all covered in oaks
And we hope
As we hang from the limbs of the trees
We cling to the rails on the boats
The trees as they turn into smoke
The trees they turn slowly to smoke
