The Woods Song

words and music by Benjamin Coy

2000 – Benjamin Coy
They wandered, lost in the woods for days
Taking paths and trails they thought would lead the way
And every road they traveled down
They said hope was at the end
but they found no answers, just reasons to try again
She needed some cause to fill the center of her life
Filling up, calendars with empty places or spaces or things
which 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 you
and let me see myself for who I am in you
there 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 pride
It hurts sometimes when we have to give up our life
its like some strong addiction that we can never seem to satisfy
But if I offer up this empty self
There’s love I can’t deny
--And she cried ‘Oh, break my heart God, I feel the cold of letting go of you
and let me see myself for who I am in you
there is so much that I love but I can’t love completely
until I give it up to you’--
