about

Harts of Oak Houston, Texas

“Harts Of Oak: This project garnered “Best Folk Act” honors in our recent Houston Press Music Awards. Folk may have been at the roots of their humble beginnings, but since blossoming into a full band their sound has shifted into a driving lo-fi indie rock sound that yearns for the late nineties/early aughts.” (Marc Brubaker, Houston Press) ... more

Track Name: Come and Take It
Look into the mirror darlin',
Your heart's a mess.
You're in that dress again,
and its halfway to the floor.

Now shed your skin like words of mad men,
obsessed with fear of dyin'
a voice without an echo,
a wave with no shore.

You're the reason it falls apart,
but I don't have the heart to tell you so.

The warmth will weave its way into your
jaded love.
You're in a field of burning poppies,
bleeding out.

One day you'll find a calloused savior,
a comfortable crutch.
He'll lay his head beside yours,
aching to be free.

You're the reason it falls apart,
but I don't have the heart to tell you so.
No i dont have the heart.
I love you so.

But I dont, have the heart to tell you so.
Track Name: Hello.
Lets talk about another place you'd rather be,
because you are the wind, and I, a leaf.
But I have found another place I'd rather be,
Her silhouette glows. A reminder of times that were.
Oh God, the time hurts.
Oh God, the time hurts.

I'm so sorry dear, to say I'm leaving here.

I'm so tired, love, of sleeping without a dream.
The empty spaces left, a longing for newer things.
Her silhouette glows.
Her silhouette glows.

You don't know me, dear, but know that I need you.
