about

Almond&Olive's first single, “Standing at the Precipice,” layers a steady acoustic guitar with the croon of a heartbroken harmonica, and rich harmonies with a hint of wavering grit. The song, originally inspired by the apocalyptic imagery of literature and television, took on a new life with personal meaning. Davidson explains, “As a metaphor for our band, we are truly standing at the precipice, surveying the future ahead of us while we try to navigate through the pitfalls of our personal and professional lives.”

lyrics

Now the hole is getting deeper
And the trouble we’re in’s not easy to hide
We’ve been searching for an answer
But the books we’re reading don’t ever
Explain what we’re looking to find
We never know but we’re going to try

You and I
Standing at the precipice
You and I
Staring down the gun
You and I
Both in the thick of it
We were never gonna to run
Watching as the walls come down
We’ll see it through to the end

Now the sky is getting darker
And the ground is shakin’ but no one knows why
We feel the heat from the fire
All the clocks stopped tickin’
And we never do know what we’re going to find
It never shows ‘til you run out of time

You and I
Standing at the precipice
You and I
Staring down the gun
You and I
Both in the thick of it
We were never gonna to run
Watching as the walls come down
We’ll see it through to the end

You never know what you’re going to find
You never know, but together we’re fine

You and I
Standing at the precipice
You and I
Staring down the gun
You and I
Both in the thick of it
We were never gonna to run
Watching as the walls come down
We’ll see it through to the end

You and I
You and I
You and I
We were never gonna to run
Watching as the walls come down
We’ll see it through to the end
