A R I Z O N A - Oceans Away

| Kerri

I never let
My guard go down
But you messed me up
When you came around
When the high wore off
Know you needed space
But I don't wanna wait
I don't wanna mistake

Few thousand miles and an ocean away
But I see the sunrise, oh, just like the other day
Picture your eyes as I fall asleep
Tell myself it's alright, oh-oh, as the tears roll by

Ooh, I wish I could feel your face
Ooh, I'm helpless when I'm oceans away

Three songwriters/producers from the Jersey came together in Boston and decided to make and perform music for themselves. Why they call themselves Arizona is unclear, but the fact remains that forming a band was the right decision. Poppy and current, with thoughtful lyrics set to a danceable background. They were my biggest surprise from Day One of SXSW Music this year and I'm sooo glad to have caught them, as it turns out it was their only Austin show for the entire year. "Oceans Away" is their latest single. Don't be surprised if one of their remixes shows up on our Pleasures list soon, too.
