about

The Soldier Story New Haven, Connecticut

The Soldier Story formed in late 1999 as a six piece band. Musical differences caused more than half the band to leave early on, making The Soldier Story a moniker for multi-instrumentalist & producer Colin Meyer. Releases include: Wait (2009), and Rooms Of The Indoors (2013).
Colin Meyer is currently self producing what will be The Soldier Story’s third LP to be released in the fall of 2016.

Track Name: Artifacts Of An Abandoned
Artifacts of an Abandoned

When the last artifacts are gone
Your house but a skeleton home
With nothing left
And nothing right for now

He took the last glimpse of light from you
Your body a desolate ruin
But there’s still a sound
There’s still a soul
In your bones

When the last artifacts are gone, gone, gone
There’s nothing left

But we will hope for you still
That you will be fulfilled
We will hope for you still
That you will be fulfilled
Track Name: Constant Crisis
Constant Crisis

Clearly, you’ve gotta get out
That town’s gonna choke you
Pack your things
You’ve gotta get out

Clearly, you’ve never known love
you’re tied up in strings attached
to all this artificial love
You’ve gotta get out

I know you’ve given your best
spent all of your life
in constant crisis
I hope you’ll thrive again
this isn’t over

Clearly, you’ve gotta let go
You’ve gotta start over
You’re holding on
But you’ve gotta let go

I know you’ve given your best
spent all of your life
in constant crisis
I hope you’ll thrive again
this isn’t over

I know you’ve given your best
spent all of your life
in constant crisis
I hope you’ll thrive again
this isn’t over

I wanna see you free
I wanna see you free
Track Name: Right Here
Right Here

Oh we’ve got a love so good
That most of the world couldn’t dream of
I could give you a field of flowers in full bloom
But nothing compares to your sweet love

You and I
We’ve got more than we could ever dream of
Right here, right here
You and I
We’ve got more than we could ever dream of
Right here

Oh we’ve got a love so good
That most of the world couldn’t dream of
I could give you the sky, the mountains covered in gold
but nothing compares to your sweet love

You and I
We’ve got more than we could ever dream of
Right here, right here
You and I
We’ve got more than we could ever dream of
Right here, right here
Track Name: Drifting Apart
Drifting Apart

I remember when you crawled through the door
broken heart, but you were so complete
Full of love, full of love

I remember when you clung to your faith
you were low, but with your hopes so high
but I’ve watched you slowly undress
every garment of white you wore

We’re drifting part, we’re drifting apart

I remember thinking you’d never change
now you’re high but with your hopes so low
You will find out with all you know
You’re not getting anywhere

We’re drifting part, we’re drifting apart

I’m not casting stones
I am grieving you
Track Name: Talk With Our Eyes
Talk With Our Eyes

Everyone is staring at the screens in their hands
Remember when we could talk with our eyes
A short distance, but we’re so far apart
Let’s lift up our heads, and free the weights from our necks

Oh here comes despair
Everyone’s so scared of the present age
Come up for air
Everyone’s so scared

Everyone is clawing at their doors bolted shut
Remember when we could speak with our minds
Short distance, but yesterday is so far away now
Lift up our heads, and free the weights from our necks

Let’s talk with our eyes

Oh here comes despair
Everyone’s so scared of the present age
Come up for air
Everyone’s so scared
Track Name: Are You Running Toward The Night?
Are You Running Toward The Night

All at once in a moment of time
All the things that kept you
Begin to fall apart
All that you hold dear
All that you keep near is gone

Passed out in your car again
In the middle of the day
With nothing left to hope
On your head she taped a note
I hope you find it when you wake

Are you running toward the night?
Shutting everyone you love outside
Are you running toward the night?

It’s gone
All that you hold dear
All that you keep near is gone

Don’t you know your worth
Isn’t based on your faults
Isn’t measured by mistakes
It was given to you at birth
Nothing can separate you from the love of God

Are you running toward the night?
Shutting everyone you love outside
What’s become of your life?

Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up
Track Name: You're All I've Got
You’re All I’ve Got

Everyone’s telling you that everything is fine
But you’re starting to believe that everything is a lie

She says
You’ve gotta pull it together
You’re all I’ve got
If you forget to remember
You’re all I’ve got

Everyone’s hoping that you are deaf and blind
But I know that you know that there is so much more to this life

She said
You’ve gotta pull it together
You’re all I’ve got
If you forget to remember
You’re all I’ve got
You’re all I’ve got
Track Name: Life Is Short
Life Is Short

Listen now, If I know just one thing
It’s that God is love and everything good comes from Him
In your arms, let me rest my head
Please don’t let my last hours be spent in a hospital bed

Life is short, so before I go
I’m telling you everything you should know
I, I love you so
You’re my joy, my rest, and my home

So stay strong, and be all you dream of
Please don’t let the world beat you down and weaken your love

Life is short, so before I go
I’m telling you everything you should know
I, I love you so
You’re my joy, my rest, and my home

Life is short, so before I go
I’m telling you everything you should know
I, I love you so
You’re my joy, my rest, and my home
Track Name: We Were Lovers In The Garden
We Were Lovers In The Garden

You would never guess
The one you thought to be the best
Is such a mess from neck to toe

In a tattered dress
A tired eyed bloodshot distress
Oh bitterness from hand to heart

With no other are we satisfied
Yet in other beds we’ve lied
We were lovers in the garden
Now we run

With a kiss loveless
The one you thought to be blessed
Is a mistress to the world

Ice cold caress
Thirsty mouthed, faint eared, sightless
With restlessness, now she starves

In agony
His heart must be
As she thinks she is free

With no other are we satisfied
Yet in other beds we’ve lied
We were lovers in the garden
Now we run

We were lovers in the garden
We were lovers in the garden
Are we longing for the garden?
Are we longing for the garden?
Track Name: An Overdue Farewell
An Overdue Farewell

I’ve tried to forget you walking through the glass
The glass doors
I’ve carrier regret since talking out our last words
Your last words

Sarcasm is no friend
I’ve been so serious since then
If i could have given you the right words
Could it have been enough
