From The Archives: For The World To See

CategoriesMusic · Writing

Back in the day. Matt and I used to have a band. It was terrible, but fun. Well the love of music, and writing music stayed with me for some time afterwards, into college. I unfortunately haven’t wrote any music in years. So I’m hoping these articles will get me motivated again. Most of the inspiration for my music just comes from being a hopeless romantic, so some songs are the definition of cheese. This is step 1. Maybe one day when I’ve gathered the courage I’ll actually post the recordings…


For The World To See

By Ben Cuppage | Written July 29th, 2010?

My heart soars with open wings
Taken high with you darling
There is nothing to compare
My dreams you took me there

My thoughts have been overcome
With clarity I succumb
to memories of the past
Shattered from your glare at last

I don’t believe this
Oh I don’t believe this

I wear, my heart on my sleeve
for the world to see
My dreams in my pocket, my mind’s in my shoe
my hope’s in my hat
but you know that
I cannot think about another than you

I rejoice before I know
feelings that lurk below
Could it possibly be me
that is drifting out to sea?

A page torn out from a book
You mirror the words I wrote
Astounding from head to toe
Your shadow’s even beautiful

I don’t believe you
Oh I don’t believe you

Repeat Chorus

I cannot think anymore
I cannot open the door
Release my mind
and let the thoughts escape

My heart has taken control,
making me let go
all ideas and let my feelings take hold
X2

Repeat Chorus

My heart’s on my sleeve
for the world to see
My dreams in my pocket, my mind’s lost in you
my hope’s in my hat
so you know that
I cannot think about another than you

Repeat Bridge

After hours you can find Ben enjoying a beer while working in the garage. Or working on another digital project, enjoying a beer. The common denominator is beer.
