lyrics

Orange and red runs down the hill
Like a painting standing still
Just as a pretty young sweet girl
Whom I care for and always will

Now she's here and then she's gone
'Cause her will is much too strong
Any asshole can write a poem
Or a drunkard sing a song

As the willow starts to mourn
Coats and scarves to keep us warm
Relate the soul to the sight
On this cold autumn night

Her hair is black don't you know
And skin as pale as a ghost
Haunts my dreams now and then
Those are the ones I like most

Wooden doors open the way
To a place we would go everyday
Now we're older and wearing suits
Our day jobs always seem so gray

As the willow starts to mourn
Coats and scarves to keep us warm
Relate the soul to the sight
On this cold autumn night

Moonlight shines in the night
Man makes his own light
But my phantom girl looks best
When she's in my own dark sight

(smooth outro)

about

Big Oak Iowa City, Iowa

Big Oak is an experimental folk band from Iowa City started in 2014. They tend to think really big and put over 30 tracks in each song, without neglecting to find some unique instruments and sounds to throw in as well. In theory, it sounds like a mess... and it is, but they're pretty proud of it.
