about

Diving Board was inspired by a real-life tale of breaking into an Austin swimming pool. The first single from "Adventure", it features guest vocals from Dana Falconberry.

lyrics

LYRICS
The light from distant stars makes up for battle scars:
A scratch and scrape climbing over the gate.
Beneath the summer trees, stretched out like casualties:
The clothes we wore to the party before.

You're on the diving board, the diving board
Up on the diving board, the diving board

There's so much to learn about you. Here in the dark I've found you:
Tan-lines showing: Your smile is so knowing, oh.
One foot upon the ladder. You ask me "What's the matter?"
The breeze comes through. You're shivering, too.

We're on the diving board, the diving board
Up on the diving board, the diving board

If I decide to dive in deep
Will this become a raging sea?
Or will the waters melt with me?
With you beside me
Please come find me.

You're laughing nervously and I'm reaching out for your hand
Please proceed overboard with me.
The crickets all go silent. The world's intent on finding
What happens next? Just hold your breath.

Jump from the diving board, the diving board
Off of the diving board, the diving board

If I decide to dive in deep
Will this become a raging sea?
Or will the waters melt with me?
When you're beside me…

If I decide to dive in deep
Will this become a raging sea?
Or will the waters melt with me?
If you're beside me…
Please come find me.

We're an indie pop band that lives between Brooklyn and Austin. We love old books, balmy weather, star charts and Basquiat. Our spirit animal is Sir Ernest Shackleton and our first album is about Adventure. We don't care for the red thread, the Moon in Capricorn or the Yankees. Definitely not the Yankees.
