Well i am a singer songwriter, with a newly formed band. My music is a unique mix of modern rock, folk, and acoustic rock. (I would like it to be more rock.... but write in Acoustic.... it seems hard to kick the acoustic sound.)

Biography

Ive been writing songs since 14 years old almost ten years. Its my dream to make a difference... I am influenced by a wide variety of music from Pearl jam to the Allman Bros, to Bob Dylan, Billy Joel, the grunge scene, modern rock, and..... so on.

Lyrics

Statues in Line

Written By: Eric John Coury

He says nothing, but stands on a hill, waiting for the sun to cave in.
She does nothing, but sit on the couch, and wander the world in her brain.
Faces fall on a fading being, has mankind lost its way.
Oh how terrible this night must be hwen theres children starving in vein.
Where theres a will, I'll open up some eyes.
But statues line the streets, all but willingly, they fall face down, on the sidewalk, where theres noone around.
You never know whats going on around you, until you open up your eyes. To the fake internal lies they tell you, andto your suprise. They run around these faceless men, behind the scenes. the truth in disguise, and to the credit of the debtless, ingenious demise, of a silent majority.
where theres a will, ill open up some eyes.
But Statues line the streets, all but willingly they fall face down, on the sidewalk, where theres noone around.

Blind Patriot

Written By: Eric John Coury

Listen for the word, dont listen much yet blind patriot, open your eyes up to the world.
Oh, nothing, oh, theres something missing, oh, nothing, theres something missing here.
Listen to your mind whisper lessons to your head, the puppet master on the strings, he sleeps inside your bed, he brands your kids the day their born with faces on the walls, he builds them up, sends them to war and chants until they fall, yea.
Oh, nothing, oh, theres something missing, oh, nothing, theres something missing here.
Oh, dont bleed for me, theres something 'bout those faces in my dreams.
Hey do you ever ask youself, what if anything can i do? I always tell myself theres nothing, nothing i can do, that cant be farther from the truth
Listen for the word, dont listen much yet blind patriot, open your eyes up to the world.
Oh, nothing, oh, theres something missing, oh, nothing, theres something missing here.
Oh, dont bleed for me, theres something 'bout those faces in my dreams.

Say It Once

Say It Once- By Eric John Coury ©2011
Verse 1
I drove past your old house, on that middle highway.
You called out my name but I didn’t hear.
I sat lonely donw on that river side.
And Listened to that old salt water speak.

Pre Chorus
Ten years just seem to roll on by and I know I left the love of my life.
Somewhere on the banks of that little Rhode Island town.
Chorus
What I wanted to say, I think you know by now.
Just go on and say it once.
What I wanted to say, I think you know by now.
Just go on and say it once.

Verse 2
We used to say we wanted out of that old familiar place
But a child just don’t know when they got it right
So simple was the life we led and we lived the life back then
Theres echos of our voices in the field.

Ten years just seem to roll on by and I know I left the love of my life.
Somewhere on the banks of that little Rhode Island town.

What I wanted to say, I think you know by now.
Just go on and say it once.
What I wanted to say, I think you know by now.
Just go on and say it once.

Bridge
Somewhere a bell rang out and a door swung open,
And I heard a voice I hadn’t heard in ten long years.
The same old eyes could knock me out,
oh the ones I’ve always dreamed about
you know they say young love will never fade

Ten years just seem to roll on by and I know I left the love of my life.
Somewhere on the banks of that little Rhode Island town.

What I wanted to say, I think you know by now. Just go on and say it once. What I wanted to say, I think you know by now. Just go on and say it once… my darling.
