SEIZE THE WATER Seize Seize the water For you, for me For you, for me You know I loved you so Watched the flowers grow and wilt and die Oh! What a show But the grass is always greener everywhere you look these days There's always something more Something better Always And I loved you so much more than you ever knew but oh well What a shame! But oh! Look at him in his pretty little jumper Doing twirls for you in the night sky Well, how fly Just seize the water For you Carpe aquam Carpe aquam Come on: break out to where the water is warmer I lie silently, waiting for a sign For me, for me You've drawn your card And now's my chance to take my own 'Cause I've got my water I've got my freedom Ain't got no blues
The Prince 04:02
THE PRINCE And so the day breaks (Guess your mind's not made up again) The calls of a war come (But I've always been so very numb, so very numb) And you'd just say: "Open up, You've got the wings of a dove!" (But if nothing here's broke, nothing needs to be fixed right now) And you'd say: "You, my love, You've got the glory from above!" (But there ain't no use dreaming for an answer, it's seeming, right? Right now!) But oh! All the love's gone! (So I'm back to my roots to learn to live a little too) And oh! I could curse it! (But the chances are the throne'll fall into the wrong hands if I do) (Thought I'd give up instead Right then, just when you said Though I could never see a trace of the path ahead) But I said: "Don't be scared! Your whole life's up ahead! A love could be gone, but it always would be in your heart, right And in your head Said A love could be gone, but it always would be in your heart, right And In Your Head.


Classically trained but in love with the reach and immediacy of pop music, Jake Downs aspires to make music that can make you smile and cry and dance and sing, all at the same time. His first single, Seize The Water, is released on the 10th of September on the Vox Humana label.

If you want to hear something fresh, youthful, and different, something which spans genres and will have you hooked with every turn, and something which will make you dance in your darkest hours and bring you to tears in your best, we suggest you give this a try.
