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: Homesick
I get lost, honey
I get scared, honey
that I'll never make it home

I get homesick, honey
I get scared, honey
that I'll never make it home

But you won't rest 
till the one you love 
finds a way to make it home
to make it home

I get caught, honey
In all the storms, honey
Will I ever make it home?

I get anxious, honey 
I can’t unwind, honey
Will I ever make it home?

But you won't rest 
till the one you love 
finds a way to make it home 
to make it home
Track Name: Beth (Hold On)
Hold out for better times
when I’m gonna make you shine 
I know it has been so hard

But I’ve got my battle drum
and I will declare it won 
this war will settle into peace

Chorus:
If you’ll hold on
I’m praying circles round you
Keep on, I’m gonna fight for you 
For freedom
I’ll loose the chains about you 
Hold on now 

It’s true what the prophet said
that God has an angel army 
It is my joy to see you through

You’ll never be alone 
and you can do nothing wrong 
I’ll cherish you for all time 

Chorus

The night is sore and sleepless 
You get lost in the black
But I’m coming down to meet you
I'll help you take it back
It’s a never ending sorrow
but I tell you it won’t last 
With these loving arms around you
I bid you rest  

Chorus
Track Name: Broken Joy
Won’t ya be my lover?
We were born to be
free as the birds in the sky
So why these chains?

Won’t ya be my lover?
We were born to be
free as a river flows downstream

Chorus:
The winds will blow
they will shake this boat
When will we reach the coast?
Darkness falls on a sea of black
and it’s too late to turn back

Won’t ya be my lover?
We were born to be
free as the light on your face
so why this shame?

Chorus

Don’t you turn away
Life will get you either way
Don’t you turn away

Chorus
Track Name: Fade Out Now
You’re haunting all my dreams
it’s tearing me apart
I thought that I was over you 
It's a feeling I can’t shake
a bond that keeps me chained
it’s been hours I’ve been staring into the pillow 

Chorus:
Face down, holding on
Laid out now
Broke down, falling hard
Fade out now

The silence in the dark
is tearing me apart
if only I could see your face
All the letters that I wrote 
you never did respond
My only wish was to be known

Chorus

If only I could see 
with the vision of my youth
If only I could write you a new song
If only I could feel
the way that I felt once
then I’d know that I was not alone

Chorus
Track Name: Another Man's Wife
Too many voices, a Saturday night
Sitting at the bar getting drunk on wine
Feeling I could fall for another man’s wife
I don’t understand my own wicked eyes

Hanging on the sidewalk, a pale moon light 
is gonna drive me home to my lover’s eyes
Dreaming of a time all these years gone by
Just wanna remember how it felt that night
Track Name: Landslide
Caught in a landslide 
I grasp at the roots and the rocks 
swimming through all this mud 
Holding my head up  
I pull in another labored breath
All this water mixed with dust 

Chorus:
I will be yours forever  
No matter the mess that I have made 
You're cleaning up for me everyday 
I will be yours eternal  
Your love will cover my old ways 
Cleaning up for me everyday 

Shoes wet and caked on with 
dirt mixed with the stain of my own blood  
I don't know why I keep this up  
Head on the table 
I feel like the bottom's about to drop
I don't know why I just don't stop 

Chorus

When the road gets hard  
and the journey’s far
and I’m weak in the knees 
I feel your hand in mine  
for the thousandth time
You’ve never been ashamed  

Chorus
Track Name: Kick Off Those Shoes
Desperate, out of touch
I feel it in my guts
If it’s not what you say, but how
then I’m gonna scream it loud
I wanna say

Home, where the heart is honey
you should know that my love won’t run out on you
So just kick off those shoes

Lost inside my head
these thoughts
I thought were dead 
If it’s not what you say, but how
then I’m gonna scream it loud
I wanna say

Home, where the heart is honey
you should know that my love won’t run out on you
So just kick off those shoes

But all the dust starts to collect
Soon I’m a ghost on the sidewalk again
Will I make it home 
Will I make it through? 
Will I rest in your arms again? 

If home's where the heart is honey
I don't know if my love will make it through
but I’ll kick off these shoes
Yeah I’ll kick off my shoes 
I’ll keep kicking off these shoes
Track Name: Wine Stains
Broken glass fills up the kitchen sink
A body that aches with twenty year’s neglect 

Oh I feel lost, oh I feel lost
down at the bottom of the sea
Oh I feel lost, oh I feel lost
out in the furthest depths of space
Are you coming back for me?

Clothes all scattered cross the bedroom floor
The wine stains on the carpet 
are showing like blood 

Oh I feel lost, oh I feel lost
down at the bottom of the sea
Oh I feel lost, oh I feel lost
out in the furthest depths of space

Oh I feel lost as the sky turns dark
and the trees all bend and shake
Oh I feel lost as the rust collects on my porch swing
Are You coming back for me?

Photos faded in the dusty light
the grandfather clock has been silent for years
Track Name: Porcelain Vase
I am damaged
I’m a porcelain vase
I am falling
I’m about to break

I’m not okay
I’m not okay
I’m not okay

I have drifted
I’m a modern case
A thousand fears
and one twisted faith

I’ve lost my way
I’ve lost my way
I’m not okay

But you fill up my heart
with a thousand pieces
and you wake up my senses

The days will come
and the days will go
I want you to know
I will praise you, my maker
The pain will come
and the pain will go
I want you to know
I will praise you, my maker

Cause you fill up my heart
with a thousand pieces
and you wake up my senses
Track Name: Courage
Chorus:
Give me the courage to follow my dreams
to follow wherever they lead
No it’s not easy when it’s too dark to see
and the path gets oh so steep
When the path gets oh so steep

Lying on the kitchen floor
I’m half awake, reeling from too much drink
Is everything lost now, has hope run out for good?
Is it too late?
Oh God, I hope it’s not too late

Chorus

Sooner or later I’ll have to decide if I have the strength
To keep keeping on or if I will fold to fear
How it’s always so near

Chorus
