Under the Rain
words and music by Benjamin Coy © 2000 - Benjamin Coy
Well it covers like rain and its free as the airSometimes we look right at it and swear it ain't thereSometimes its a clear and bright sunny blue dayThe next moment you look the sky turns grayI can't quite recall when it filled me the lastIs it a sin that so much time has passedMaybe its illusive but I think its just methe things I lead me into take me down to my knees--Oh show me your love'cause I'm feeling blindOh I need your hand to take these scales from my eyesand I'll be alright even when day turns to night--Sometimes this life feels like its spinning me aroundFeels like a ride at the fair that won't put me back on the groundI'll tell you boy its hard to find love in the middle of the nightYou've got to let a lot go to find yourself in the light--Oh show me your love'cause I'm feeling blindOh I need your hand to take these scales from my eyesand I'll be alright even when day turns to night---oh I was afraid to walk down this roadNow I know just where I have to goOh and all along the wayIf there are clouds I know I can stand under the rain--Oh show me your love'cause I'm feeling blindOh I need your hand to take these scales from my eyesand I'll be alright even when day turns to night--(Ben - Vocals, Acoustic Guitar; Oliver - Harmony Vocals, Acoustic Guitar;Wil Couch - Bass; Jesse Sprinkle - Drums)
>Wandering Friend
words and music by Benjamin Coy  © 2000 - Benjamin Coy
Hello, are you there? You left us without saying much of a wordI wonder, do you remember all of us back here? Hello, I've missed youIts been awhile since I've seen you aroundDo you want to sit and talk for awhile? I just want you to know that we're still here--Will you, can you, do you know where you have been? Did you find yourself there?-Have you loved at all? Sometimes we loose our thoughts in its embraceDid what you see take your breath away? Or did it make you turn your head?--Will you, can you, do you know where you have been? Did you find yourself there? And we believed in you when you triedNow I hope you've found what you were looking for-But life, and love, and dreams sometimes fly awaysometimes we loose hope in what we're trying to findBut just look at life, its like a paintingAnd Love, the artist knows every designDid you hold it? Or just see it behind the door? Can you take it? Love's potion and need no more--Will you, can you, do you know where you have been? Did you find Love there? And we believed in you when you cried Now I hope Love's been found where you're looking for. (Ben - Vocals , Acoustic Guitar; Oliver - HarmonyVocals, Acoustic Guitar; Wil Couch - bass; Jesse Sprinkle - percussion)

>The Woods Song
words and music by Benjamin Coy  © 2000 - Benjamin Coy
They wandered, lost in the woods for daysTaking paths and trails they thought would lead the wayAnd every road they traveled downThey said hope was at the endbut they found no answers, just reasons to try againShe needed some cause to fill the center of her lifeFilling up, calendars with empty places or spaces or thingswhich might be the light(And she said) 'The more I try to live, the more life shows me what it thinks I need to see. But so few things are really what they appear to be--And she cried 'Oh, break my heart God, I feel the cold of letting go of youand let me see myself for who I am in youthere is so much that I love but I can't love completely until I give it up to you'--I've tried to, fight my way out of prideIt hurts sometimes when we have to give up our lifeits like some strong addiction that we can never seem to satisfyBut if I offer up this empty selfThere's love I can't deny --And she cried 'Oh, break my heart God, I feel the cold of letting go of youand let me see myself for who I am in youthere is so much that I love but I can't love completely until I give it up to you'--(Ben - Acoustic Guitar, Ebow, Vocals; Oliver - Acoustic Guitar, Harmony Vocals)

>Never to be Told
words and music by Benjamin Coy   © 2000 - Benjamin Coy
There is the room where I learned to play guitar inThere is the town where I played my first songThat was the place where I first told you I loved youThen I left, and became all aloneOf all of the people, I've met in my 20 some yearsNo one's ever broken into meMaybe you're an omen, or maybe just a signThat I've changed from who I used to be--and you saw me, like so many wished that they'd be seenby someone who could see into their soulBut if our sanctuaries can never be openedThen our lives are never to be told-Somebody told me that we are all connectedThat we're unguarded in our humanityAnd if that's true, I think that I should love youIf that is something you should want from me--and you saw me, like so many wished that they'd be seenby someone who could see into their soulBut if our sanctuaries can never be openedThen our lives are never to be told---And if I tried to sell you something that I never owned well I'm sorryWill you let me in? because I want to be let inTo open up myself…--and you saw me, like so many wished that they'd be seenby someone who could see into their soulBut if our sanctuaries can never be openedThen our lives are never to be told-(Ben - Vocals, Acoustic Guitar)

 >Back Again
words and music by Benjamin Coy  © 2000 - Benjamin Coy
Maybe if I was blind, I wouldn't have this skin to hide behindMaybe if I was perfect, I could love you like I shouldIf you say a prayer, say one for meMaybe that I'd fall asleepAnd if you see me in, see me in your dreamsIts right where I want to beDid you feel a pinch, did I stop to breathe? Am I down on my feet? Cause you brought me downAnd I'm thinking howI'd get to where I would be--Did you see me? Cause I'm leaving againI'm always leavingBut I'm coming back again--Can I borrow some of your timeI don't want to leave it behindWill you be the oneTo hold me down if I start flying? So stay with me, I won't pretend to be something I cannot be and if you'd be my eyes, when I'm blindI'll have nothing to hide behind --Did you see me? Cause I'm leaving againI'm always leavingBut I'm coming back again--(Ben - All Guitars and Vocals; Jesse Sprinkle - Drums; Wil Couch - Bass)

>Tell Her
words and music by Benjamin Coy  © 2000 - Benjamin Coy
The warm sun and the moon and the night breeze that blowsI've often wanted to follow it to see where it goesAll the days that pass by without a soundMaybe I will close my eyes and just follow it around-and somebody told me that I was growing olderand some sweet, sad song was singing around and aroundand it said…--Don't forget to tell her you love her tonightDon't wait and everything will be alrightand wherever this life leads, I hope it keeps you close to meSo don't wait, and everything will be alright--All around I see a certain designand everything created from out of a mindand I know there is a much bigger Lovequietly leading, whispering from above -and just the other day I felt a bit olderand some sweet sad song was singing around and aroundand it said…--Don't forget to tell her you love her tonightDon't wait and everything will be alrightand wherever this life leads, I hope it keeps you close to meSo don't wait, and everything will be alright--
