about

Eva & the Oak Boston, Massachusetts

Based out of Boston, with humble beginnings in Raleigh, NC, Eva & the Oak unites their folky roots with indie/alternative influences. Dark and dreamy, they spark a reminiscent calm within the listener powered by ethereal vocals, haunting guitar progressions, layers of rhythm, and blankets of texture. Natural, branching, beautiful, and grounded, Eva & the Oak tells a tale fit for its name sake. ... more

Track Name: Closer Caress
Hold me closer
I'm tired
Let me sleep on your chest
For the night

Sew my little lips
Closed
Keep the silence
For when I'm not home

Hold me closer
I'm cold
Who will keep me warm when I'm not home

Sew my little lips
Closed
Keep the silence
For when I'm not home
Track Name: The River
Take me to the river
Get me out of my head
We can kiss forever
Let's forget what time is

And you wanna be inspired,
I know a little trick
And I wanna be admired
Show me passion

You
All that you see in me I see in you
In you

So tell me once more
All that is broken is beautiful

Press my head against your chest
Lull me to sleep with your heartbeat
Curl me up
Let my ears hear your breath
So that I don't forget to breathe

And I didn't mean to seduce you
It's just the kind of love they got me used to
There's things I'm scared to tell you
Separate the past and future
Don't know how this happened
But show me your passion, show me

You
All that you see in me I see in you
In you

So tell me once more
All that is broken is beautiful

If you swear you'll wait for me
If you swear you'll wait for me
If you swear you'll wait for me
I swear, I swear I'll wait for

You
I'd sleep with my eyes to the sun and wait to fight the night with you
With you

And I'll always come back home
All broken and beautiful

I'll stay to fight the night with you
Track Name: Peony Heart
Days and weeks to measure time that's left
No words to gauge the love or feelings felt
Incense to breathe it with a scent
Flowers to keep the passion pressed

He said he's gonna pin me down and make me his forever
I love you with every petal of my peony heart
You better always remember

You can say whatever the hell you want to me as long as you say it gentle
My gypsy soul is tethered, wings of gossamer and feathers
Fly me back into your arms so you can kiss it better
Your fingers softly touch the lace that keeps our bodies separate

I, I'm a fool for you
I'd swim into your soul's night sky and find the moon for you
Oh, I'll tell you what I'd do for you
I'll show you what a woman is and how to move her

So darling won't you pin me down and make me yours forever
Oh
I love you with every petal of my peony heart
You better always remember
Track Name: Silver Moon
When the curtains are drawn
I'm no less alone than you are
When my chin points down and my lips are sewn
I fight the silence like a ghost trapped in a room

Cause I am where you are
I am where you are
I am where you are
I am where you are

So fight for me
So fight for me
Don't lead me out to the dark
So fight for me
For the light in me
For the youth in me that you love
(It won't be here for long...)

Our black pearl eyes
Draw in the light for that glossy shine
Silver moon, don't lose your glow
Not on this blackest night

Cause I am where you are
I am where you are
I am where you are
I am where you are

So fight for me
So fight for me
Don't leave me out in the dark
So fight for me
For the light in me
For the youth left in me that you love
(It won't be here for long...)

Silver moon, don't lose your glow
Silver moon, don't lose your glow
Silver moon, don't lose your glow
Silver moon don't lose...

I'll stay to fight the night with you...
Track Name: Remember The Iris
Called upon the Fae to send you sleep

Picked from lavender fields in the in-between

Shaking in your bed, they set it to steep

In your boiling mind



Hush now,

I gave you all the youth that I had

I sing only for the night now

Hollow out the depths in my mind



If this is what you've chosen,

You will rue

The first wisteria bloom.
