It’s very rare nowadays to discover a band that creates music so good that it literally makes your jaw drop. Other Lives is exactly that sort of band. Check out these four brilliant songs:

Lyrics

I am on a bridge and down below
People passing by, the ones we used to know
I’d like to say goodbye

And I had called a name but no one heard
Sounds just like the noise of people talking words
I’d love to say a prayer
For all those that flew and all who wish to

Golden gates
Look far from here
A peaceful view
From up above

And can you hear their voices calling your name?
I am on the ground and now I’ve seen
The choice to stay or go does not belong to me
I’d love to say hello

Paper Cities

Play

Lyrics

We sent them all across the ocean
Many lives were taken
But I didn’t cry, I didn’t know them
And I just looked on with no expression

This land was once a home
Of friends and family
We used to know
They are all gone now
They are now gone
And for what I cannot tell

Put down your banners and flags
This war you’ve made won’t last
Your country, just lines on a map
They’re drawn up, they don’t last

The paper cities burning
The ashes fell like rain
But when the fire was over
Everything had changed
And people come together
Reminds us we’re the same

Put down your banners and flags
This war you’ve made won’t last
Your country, just lines on a map
They’re’ drawn up, but they don’t last

Precious Air (Unfortunately this amazing song was only released as a demo)

Play

Lyrics

In the years that you were down
Where hope could not be found
You just take your time to decide
How you will change your fragile mind
Many times you’ve tried

When you’ve given in
They’ve lifted up the sun
The light that hits your eyes
Now you have walked away unchanged
Here the scars remain

You’re wasting precious air
We heard you almost died
And your last breath
Will carry on

All the years we tried
Knowing something more could be
And the seasons change
With all the joy and pain

You’re wasting precious air
We heard you almost died
And your last breath
Will carry on

Black Tables

Play

Lyrics

When the whites of your eyes come through
You will see something new
With your body and mind restored
It’s good to see you back home

When the life in your eyes wants black
Things return, you’ve come back
With your body and mind restored
It’s good to see you once more

Turning black tables
And you’re turning black tables
And you’re making your head whirl
Making your head whirl

And you’re turning black tables
And you’re turning black tables
And you’re making your head whirl
Making your head whirl
