about

Wilkes Oswald Miami, Florida

4 dudes in Miami formed a band in 2009 called Wilkes Oswald. Influenced individually and collectively by acts such as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Tame Impala, Muse, Daft Punk, and Kanye West.

No two live shows by Wilkes Oswald have ever been the same; they get off on the art of spontaneous, improvised sequences in their live shows; sometimes completely improvising a new song on the spot.

Track Name: You Only Lived Once
We're at the beach and that's where we'll stay
And on the sand we'll play all day
And all the people become insane
As we watch the waves take us away
Track Name: Elaine
Called you up on a Saturday night
I took you down to the only place I know
Swing around like you're not uptight
I'm letting loose 'cause you're not in my control

I don't wanna waste this love
So let's just call it lust

Hands up in the air
We're dancing off our despair
Falling off our chair
Try it if you dare

Call me your man
Is it part of your plan
Then I don't understand
Can I hold your hand

I don't wanna waste this love
So let's just call it lust

Don't stop

I wanted just to waste your time
Like you always used to lead me on
On your mind, Sunshine

Keep me on the line,
you know that's fine
Track Name: Space Song
The countdown commences
It's time to close the fences
Buckle up, hold on tight
It's gonna be a bumpy ride

We're leaving the atmosphere
The only air we got is in here
We'll be traveling for three years

We're taking it day by day
Out here there are no landscapes
Out here there's only dark space

Oh, is this what you're in for
Should it be more simple
It's supposed to be

We're taking it day by day
Out here there are no landscapes
Out here there's only dark space
Track Name: Down
down...
Track Name: Dirt
Don't leave me on the dirt my love
Won't you reconsider
'Cause I've still got much to learn
Won't you help me find
Don't leave me behind, no

'Cause I've heard it all before my love
Just know I'm not at fault
It's just the way I learned of love
It leaves you broken down
But we can turn around





Don't leave me here on the dirt...
Track Name: Magnolia
Such a clear view
once you've parted
colors see thru
thoughts uncharted

How could anybody know?

Magnolia

Keep calm but on and on and on
We're forced to hear the storied
and the wrong with open arms

But why would you lie?
Why would they lie?

Magnolia

Do you hear me now?
Have my fears become so loud?
I called you dear, but still no sound
I've felt you near, but never found

Don't let your love go floating away
Track Name: Late, Lately
Way down where the wind don't wanna blow
My shadow grows as the night turns cold
I wait there for the pain to come and go

But time won't wait for me

Day brings a new life to fill the void
It asks...
Who are you and who am I?
...It's a silence that never dies

But time won't wait for me

If I wait forever, will I ever see the light on the other side
Track Name: Watson
Hello, I like the way you do me girl
And oh no, if that's the way you do me girl
Is that that you? I saw you in a movie girl
I'm tied up, so that way I don't lose control

If that's the way that you want it, that's the way that I...
'Cause I've been waiting so long, that's the way that I...
If that's the way that you want it, that's the way that I...
If that's the way that you want

Hello, I like the way you do me girl
And oh no, if that's the way you do me girl
Is that that you? I saw you in a movie girl
I'm tied up, so that way I don't lose control


If that's the way that you want it, that's the way that I...
'Cause I've been waiting so long, that's the way that I...
If that's the way that you want it, that's the way that I...
If that's the way that you want

It's getting hot...
hotter

Hello, I like the way you do me girl
