about

Vincent Colbert Denver, Colorado

"His insightful and intensely personal narratives cling to their rhythmic hearts like drowning men. But for all their ragged emotional vulnerability, his songs do exhibit a fierce resilience to the struggles and pains that come from day-to-day life." -Joshua Pickard, Nooga.com ... more

Track Name: Michigan
Power’s out, the wind’s blowing
tearing through the streets
alone in Michigan
Poison all my thoughts
I’m all lit up after dark
alone in Michigan

A cold reproach
Like the frost that’s clinging to my coat
Like drifts of snow
I've hung around too long
but where am I to go?

Locked out of this 2nd story
half a house is half a home
in Michigan
Like litter on the street
I roam, blowing through the black
alone in Michigan

A cold reproach
Like the frost that’s clinging to my coat
Like drifts of snow
I've hung around too long
but where am I to go?

Where am I to go?

A cold reproach
Like the frost that’s clinging to my coat
Like drifts of snow
I've hung around too long
but where am I to go?

Where am I to go?
Track Name: Dark Days
The air feels heavy tonight
I don’t wanna see you cry
I’m gonna make things right

I can’t believe what I’ve done
this battle all but won
then I come undone

Come back my way
Come back my way
Come back my way
Believe me when I say
We can make it through the dark days

Maybe love's like a fine aged wine
Maybe all we need is time
Let’s leave the past behind

All I know is that I need you
Oh, I wanna see this through
I hope you want it too

Come back my way
Come back my way
Come back my way
Believe me when I say
We can make it through the dark days

Come back my way
We can make it through the dark days
Come back my way
We can make it through the dark days
Come back my way
Believe me when I say
We can make it through the dark days
Track Name: Don't Let Me Go
Over dark, empty highways
Through the bitter, driving rain
In a long stretch of silence
I can feel you slip away

Don’t let me go
I don’t want to be alone
Don’t let me go
I don’t know what I’d do without you

I put miles between us
Don’t know why I always run
With our love in the rearview
Oh what will I become?

Don’t let me go
I don’t want to be alone
Don’t let me go
I don’t know what I’d do without you

Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
I don’t know what I’d do without you
I don’t know what I’d do without you
I don’t know what I’d do without you
Track Name: Above Tree Line
There's a mountain I must climb
But my heals are bruised and torn
Through the wind, through the fire
and you're no longer by my side

I’m on my own now above tree line
I’m on my own now above tree line
I’m on my own now, I’m on my own now

We used to roam the hills
The two of us running wild
Oh, but time always has its way
I can’t weather all this pain

I’m on my own now above tree line
I’m on my own now above tree line
I’m on my own now, I’m on my own now

I'll meet you in the sun
I'll join you on the wind
I'm not far behind, but now

I’m on my own now above tree line
I’m on my own now above tree line
I’m on my own now, I’m on my own now
There's a mountain I must climb
Track Name: Outlast the Sun
Remember the time we parked on the 101
and hiked down the hill, the warmth of the setting sun
The waves lapped up on our feet
the wind in your hair

Oh, my love will outlast the sun
Oh, your grace will cover the sea

Remember the climb up the long rugged peak
We set out in the dark, saw the sun break
Those rays burned off all the dark
the light met your face

Oh, my love will outlast the sun
Oh, your grace will cover the sea

Even when the waters come to rise
When clouds come to hide the light

Oh, my love will outlast the sun
Oh, your grace will cover the sea
Ohhhh…. Ohhhh….
