Bear's Den-Agape

I woke up today with Agape on my mind. You know it is very unusual to hear a greek word as a title of a track. Then you find out that Bear's Den are singing it and then you watch the music video. I mean, you have to pay attention. Bear's Den is a band made by a trio back in 2012. They write and play mostly alternative folk music and they have released their debut album Islands in 2014. They have supported artists like Mumford and Sons, Daughter and Matt Corby. They might ring a bell if you have watched the wonderful music documentary "Austin To Boston" featuring Ben Howard, The Staves, Nathaniel Rateliff and Bear's Den. If you haven't then you should definitely watch it right away. The band's Kev Jones explains the song and video: "To me the song is partly about insecurity in a relationship, about never being able to shake that feeling, and how by default that feeling can lead to a relationship's demise. I thought slowly sinking into the sand only to be engulfed in waves summed that up well, the feeling of inevitability brought on by your own thoughts and the sensation of restriction that can manifest itself in those situations… The shoot itself was a little more brutal that we had imagined, nothing can quite prepare you for being buried fully clothed in wet sand at 8AM on a January morning." Enjoy!



Bear's Den-Agape

Agape
Please don't dissipate
I know that I've got it all wrong
I'm reaching out
To touch your voice
But baby I'm clutching at straws

Eventhough your words hurt the most
I still want to hear them
Every day
You say let it go,
but I can't let it go
I wanna believe every word that you say

For I'm so scared of losing you
and I don't know what I can do about it
About it
So tell me how long love before you go
and leave me here on my own
I know it

I don't want to know who I am without you.

Agape
Please don't dissipate
Yeah, I know that I've got it all wrong
I'm reaching out
To touch your voice
But baby I'm clutching at straws

For I'm so scared of losing you
and I don't know what I can do about it
About it
So tell me how long love before you go
and leave me here on my own
I know it
I don't want to know who I am without you.

I don't want to know.
I don't want to know.
I don't want to know.

For I'm so scared of losing you
and I don't know what I can do about it
About it
So tell me how long love before you go
and leave me here on my own
I know it
I know it
So tell me how long love before you go
and leave me here on my own
I don't want to know who I am without you.
I don't want to know who I am without you.
