the ObsidianOz band

BandAlternativePop

The ObsidianOz band freshly resonates with hints of the Police, Robert Plant and the Moody Blues on steroids. Ecclectic and catchy with upbeat lyrics as in, Foolish Heart and You & I. Experience 'Return' as it explodes and shimmer, a sunset of colors and imagery set in a meadow sown with a promise.

Lyrics

Return

Written By: Oz Middleton

RETURN


Ease down to the meadows, lightly she breathes, So close as a calm wind sway
(ing) the leaves. I will return to see you smile.
Sing on red breasted robins, Chorus flowers in time, Evening sun orange answers, coral ruins mine, Then she places my hand on her heart and look far away.
I will return to see you smile.
Sail to the sun. I will return to see you smile.
Ease down to the meadows, lightly she breathes, sit close as a calm wind swaying the leaves, then she places her hands on her heart and look far-away.
I will return to see you smile

Foolish Heart

Written By: Oz Middleton

FOOLISH HEART

Was it you, or just the skies, make the 'Tamaka lake' look so blue,
Was it true, cause the light in your eyes, Like Qs arrow it shot me right through.
Wide eyed surprise make me realize a for-ever love existed with you.
Love walked and talked, on horizons so new, Silent and graceful each step I took with you, Oh foolish heart, So quick to surrender. I'd remember Schools on, summers gone, And now my love so are you, When did I loose, no time to choose, when 'summer love' ended with you. Oh foolish heart, So quick to surrender, Only lonely heart lost on the Lake in september. Now in my dreams, (my heart) can only remember, remember.
Schools on, Summers gone , And hurting is all I can do, When did I loose, No time to choose, When summer ended, our love did too. But love walked and talked on horizons so new, Silent and graceful each step I took with you, Oh foolish heart, So quick to surrender, I'd only remember, remember, Oh foolish heart, only lonely foolish heart.

You & I

Written By: Oz Middleton

You & I

My eyes are blinking to the early morning, Glade to see a brand new day is dawning,
Good to know yours is the very first smile here to greet my eyes.

'The Byrds' "Tambourine Man" is playing , A sense of wonder to this new beginning while
fragrant lilies wafting through the window lingers in the air.

On cloudless skies while flowers mesmerize the colors in your eyes, How we'd fly You & I.

This time we'll fly and then we'd take to wing, Leave behind, Leaving everything, This crazy topsy turvy world have shaken, Shakened in our minds. Then you would move and I could feel the courage, The clouds of doubt now gone I'd feel encouraged, As new hope springs, let the sun-shine in on this lonely heart of mine.

Cloudless skies, While flowers mesmerize all color in your eyes, How we'd fly, You & I.
You & I, like two doves on the wing just leaving everything, Soaring high, You & I.

Soaring high, Now so high could almost kiss the sky, Soaring high, You & I.
High we'll fly, til we could kiss the sky, Tell this old world good-bye, High we'll fly, You & I.

Cloudless skies, While flowers mesmerize all color in your eyes, How we'd fly, You & I.
You & I, like two doves on the wing just leaving everything, Soaring high, You & I.

Soaring high, Now so high could almost kiss the sky, Soaring high, You & I.
High we'll fly, til we could kiss the sky, Tell this old world good-bye, High we'll fly, You & I.

Cloudless skies, While flowers mesmerize all color in your eyes, How we'd fly, You & I.
You & I, like two doves on the wing just leaving everything, Soaring high, You & I.

The Dream

Written By: Oz Middleton

the Dream

And in the dream a star-lit quiet dream , one only boat alone we float up stream, a soft and blue reflected dance moon light shines in your eyes. Your eyes, gives sparkle to, Gives sparkles to the night celestial pool, Still quiet calming sight as when you turned, smile at my smiling face, You asking me to stay here in this place.

Stay here in my life. A lift calm, In a dream, You here in my life, And ever float up stream.
We float by twilight, Just floating on a stream, We float by twilight The stars guiding it seems.

And in the dream a star-lit quiet dream , one only boat alone we float up stream, a soft and blue reflected dance moon light shines in your eyes. Your eyes, gives sparkle to, Gives sparkles to the night celestial pool, Still quiet calming sight as when you turned, smile at my smiling face, You asking me to stay here in this place.

You are in my life, We're floating on a stream, We float by twilight, The stars guiding it seems.
We float by moon light, Just floating on a stream, You here in my life, I like you in my dreams.

You can blame me

Written By: Oz Middleton

So, so many times pulled this pen from my pocket, write a letter to you, send it off to the sky in a rocket, babe I need to get through, I just need to get through.

Hoping to find the right words that can tell her, the way that I feel inside. Search to end of this world if I have to wasted on foolish my pride. Now I push my pride aside.

So! You can blame me, you can blame me, crashed our love into the sun, blind couldn't see, I just didn't see, no, no couldn't see, her love was the guide, the light, setting me free.

Rain's to the earth, many drops in a bucket, they just escape me, rusted out, well who could contain it, it's differed in the dream, so differed in the dream.

'Future Days Pass' and yes we wonder, where will it lead us this time, treasure those moments spent here beside her, always on my mind, she's always on my mind.

Now! You can blame me, you can blame me, crashed our love into the sun, blind couldn't see, I just didn't see, no, no couldn't see, her love was the guide, the light, setting me free.

Denial

Written By: Oz Middleton

Denial

Gonna wake this town, as we pump the sound, come on, get down.
Here's the one that rocks, pull out all the stops, come on, come on.
When you feel the beat, pour into the streets right outside your door.

{No use denying. Not in the mood. It gets you dance-n, if it gets you loose.}

Hot pulse, on an easy groove, makes you wanna move, your feet
Get out on the floor and dance, give it half a chance you'll see
Beat box never wanna stop, cause the music starts it.

{No use denying. Not in the mood. It gets you dance-n, if it gets you loose.}

She's your lightening you her thunder, strike the dance floor now surrender

Come on, get down.

No use denying, not in the mood, it gets you dance-n, if It gets you loose
{ Here's the one that rocks take out all the stops come on, come on.}

No use denying, not in the mood, it gets you dance-n, if It gets you loose
{If you feel that beat, move into the street come on, come on.}

No use denying, not in the mood, it gets you dance-n, if It gets you loose
{ Well, you've got the chance, get on out and dance, come on, get down }

No use denying, not in the mood, it gets you dance-n, if It gets you loose
{Can you feel the groove, want to make you move, come on, come on. }
Yeah

No use denying, not in the mood, it gets you dance-n, if It makes you move
{It's the one that rocks pull out all the stops, come on, get down.}
Oohh
No use denying, not in the mood. It gets you dance-n, if it gets you loose.
{Here's the one that rock,s pull out all the stops, come on come on.}
Oohh
