about

A subtle storm of jazz and R&B-injected pop, the newcomer's soulful timbre recalls the timeless desire & heartache of Sade and Bon Iver, with the moody existential angst of Portishead. “The song is about how grief can feel like being stuck beneath a waterfall,” Nic says. “How loss can derail you, overtake you, numb you, and sometimes it takes years to pull yourself out of the cycle.”

lyrics

Nic Pool "The Falls"

Lyrics:

I'm sick and tired of being angry at God. I see angels where they don’t belong, slithering head-first down the length of my neighbor’s roof. Petrichor, wild long hair. In the winter light, every waterfall was you. In other words, the sound never stops. Longing claws around in me, blue-tipped, with a face like an artificial flower. It’s cold as hell but I’ll tell it to you straight. I would’ve loved you in the fold, in the falls, I would’ve loved you.**

Had a couple drinks
I'm ready for the road
But you pull me back, pull me back oh no
Your hands are growing cold, your fingers to the bone
And I hold your heart, hold your heart to grow

You, how
You, how

It's you and the falls
You and the falls
You and the falls
You and the falls
You, you, you, you

Tucson Arizona I'm hoping you'll be there
Where the lights are golden, nobody's scared
Folded up the boxes, hit the road
In your busted Toyota, your little girl
You, how

It's you and the falls
You and the falls
You and the falls
You and the falls
You, you, you, you

Sky's a fallen indigo swirl
It's the end of the world, end of the world
Hoped you'd always be my girl
But baby you, baby you're a wasteland
Got a pretty face, but one day you'll be old
And baby, I woulda loved you

You, how
You, how

It's you and the falls
You and the falls
You and the falls
You and the falls
You, you, you, you
