Oil and Water Lyrics - Incubus

Review The Song (35)



You and I are like oil and water
And we've been trying, trying, trying
Ohhhhhhh... to mix it up.

We've been dancing on a volcano
And we've been crying, crying, crying
Over blackened soles

Babe, this wouldn’t be the first time
It will not be the last time
There is no parasol that could shelter this weather

I've been smiling with anchors on my shoulders
And I’ve been dying, dying, dying
Ohhhhhhh... to let them go!

Babe, this wouldn’t be the first time
It will not be the last time
There is no parasol that could shelter this weather

Babe, this wouldn’t be the first time
sponsored links
It will not be the last time
We've been trying to believe everything would get better!

We've been lying to each other
Hey! Babe! Let's just call it, call it, call it
Ohhhhhhhh.... what it is!

Oil and water...
Oil and water...
Oil and water...
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhoooooooooooooooooo

like the song! | Reviewer: JJ Kasie | 6/18/13

beautiful song - I would stick with the positive side of this song that we don't have to try to mix 'oil and water' :) perhaps its best to appreciate the difference :) since it is the opposite attraction :)
Cheers,

Amazing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/15/11

This describes me and this girl perfectly. It seems as though we will never mix :( Even if we want it to... Like jamming a non-fitting puzzle piece into another. Even if you make it work, you won't like it the same if it actually worked.

it is amazing how one simple song can describe you so perfectly. I`ve been listening to it lately a lot, and each time I love it and admire it more.
so thank you for that, incubus. just keep it coming. :)
najbolji. <3

perfect <3 | Reviewer: Jade | 9/12/10

really like incubus and been listening to it for some time now but i discovered this song only few days ago and can't believe how perfect it is. :)

i guess it reminds me on my ex relationship that i've had hard time getting over. it seems some things just can't be mixed and can't work. i wish it was different and sorry it didn't turn out in a better way :(

still can't decide if the song has happy or sad ending... i will picture it as a happy one.

I AGREE WITH DEBBIE | Reviewer: KATHY EINZIGER | 3/7/08

I agree with what Debbie said, the song is truly and indeed SIMPLY PERFECT. At least you have a cool song (OF COURSE BY INCUBUS) that could remind you some things. Go work it out, GIRL! You rock! You are not alone. Try listening to their song Diamonds and Coal... you might like it :)
Though, I was wondering why Incubus was able to create the song. I mean what's the reason behind it. Hmmm... simply intriguing at the same time.

Simply Perfect! | Reviewer: Debbie | 3/4/08

After being married for 22yrs & finally hitting a very hard time, this song brings it all into perspective. We are Oil & Water, but we will work it out & mix, regardless of what it takes. Incubus hit the bullseye with this song! I love it & makes me know that we are not alone.

ALL SONGS OF INCUBUS ARE REALLY GREAT AND COOL | Reviewer: kathy einziger | 3/4/08

incubus rocks....this song is TRUE.it's like saying to you directly to wake up and face the reality that some things can't be mixed and fixed. BEEN THERE THAN THAT AS WELL.
regarding the drums, it is hard rockin', I love the roll they did in this song..in a different view, song could've been a ballad type but w/ a powerful voice w/ that of Brandon's, he made it an extraordinary song!!! way to go INCUBUS! Mike Einziger...take care always. Love you

"how to mix oil and water... | Reviewer: Harley | 11/18/2007

This song is beautiful. Just poignant in every way possible. My relationship with this guy is exactly like this and has not changed for over a year. Its pathetic. Maybe this song will just help me get the courage to let him go."

my relationship with this girl is also jsut like this...incubus is just mazing

THE BEST | Reviewer: Kathy Einziger | 2/23/08

Every song is truly unique.. loooooovvveeee the guitarist as always.. :) oil and water and then diamonds and coal as if they are into mines!! COOL! INCUBUS ROCKS! But I love DIAMONDS AND COAL better ! BOTH OF THEM ARE REALLY GOOD!

left to interpretation | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/24/08

i dont see this song like everyone else does.
have you ever seen oil and water? its beautiful.
despite the fact that it doesnt mix at all, its amazing together.
call it what it is is left to interpretation. what it is to me isnt the same as everyone else.

Hmmm... | Reviewer: Heather | 1/13/08

So typical to use oil and Water, but it works. Damn I love it! Incubus rocks! dont even get me started on that song STELLAR!!!!!!!!!

oil and water | Reviewer: tiff | 1/10/08

this song is beautiful just amazing in every way possible, the lyrics are so strong and meaningful and can really open your eyes. This song however opened my eyes in a different way from the previous reviews, it shows me how lucky i am to find someone that mixes perfectly with me and always will. For me there is no oil and water. I adore this song because it reminds me to appreciate what I have and need.

i love you baby
