Symphonic Refrain

It's music that you haven't heard before, written by myself, played by myself and friends that I have grown up with. It will stick with you, the lyrics are understandable but yet have deep connotation. Honestly, it's as if Coldplay and a few other bands got together and hung out and made some fun music together.

Lyrics

Start

Written By: Ben Hinders

Park benches are what keep me sound asleep
And what they toss is what I eat
These city streets are where I lay my head
These city streets are where I bury my dead

They say "oh, You're gonna make it, someday"
And I say "oh, I'm gonna make it someday"
But...

Crusades are history
Progress is fantasy
Go west young man, some day you'll make it there
Start your life again
Find a wife young man
The start and finish line always look the same

Courts are the gateways leading to my mind
They throw away the keys, they throw away time
These prison walls are where I lay my head
These prison cells are where I bury my dead

They said "oh, you're gonna get out, someday"
And I said "oh, I'm gonna get out someway"
But...

Start your life again

Melody

Written By: Ben Hinders

Please be my remedy, melody, my rhapsody
Please be my energy, utterly, my symphony

I have spread, the blanket of my dreams
By your house and, by your streams
When you tread please tread, carefully
For when you tread my love you tread on my dreams

When light returns I wish to be in the grave
For as I live I, live to die to save, you
With my final cry, please place me inside
Somewhere close to, where you reside

Only the dreamers
Will understand my calamity
Only the lovers
Will comprehend

Faith

Written By: Ben Hinders

Sometimes we need a helping hand
Other times we do the best we can
When you're alone and
You're all alone and
Can't seem to find it no
Can't seem to find it
In your heart to go on
To press on to move on

Some things are best unspoken
Some records left unbroken
We can do the impossible
Just take away the first two letters

Live to die for love
Find the world above
Keep to the path that is straight and narrow
Fight for what is right
Write the words ignite
A light in the dark and a shield from the arrow

Sometimes we just can't comprehend
Other times the pain doesn't seem to end
When you're alone and
You're all alone and
Can't seem to find it no
Can't seem to find it
In your heart to love again
To find your love find her love

There is weakness in mortality
We are broken and there is no guarantee
That we'll make it to perfection
Death is your final resurrection

Scars

Written By: Ben Hinders

she cuts me deep
like the bottom of a glass
no the floor of a crevasse
she cuts me deep
she burns my love
like I'm caught in a crossfire
and my plans they always backfire
she burns my love

and why, why you gotta leave me like this?
and why, why you gotta hurt me like this?
you gave me some scars baby,
you gave me some scars

I am lost I am found
And I swim till I drown
In the waves of my memory
Deaf to the symphony
I am tossed to and fro
Should I stay or I should I go
And I'm burned by your coldness
Frozen in this hell

and why, why you gotta leave me like this?
and why, why you gotta hurt me like this?
you gave me some scars baby,
and this one's on my arm
and this one's on my heart
your words left a mark, baby
your words left their mark
but take your pen and mark my words,
baby you left some scars
