Coward, the new single from Troy. Featured in: "Restless Waters" by NY Times Bestselling Author Jessica Park.


I suppose i should let you go,
Fear is all i’ve ever known
A fever of a hidden man.

Can you tell i’m a hurting man?
Can’t you see I wanna be your man?
This is all unfair.

Oh, this is my call,
I know that you know,
Because you’ve seen my soul.
I was a lonely one,
the shadows

So, I put it all in this song,
So you’ll know once and for all,
I was never home
Before you

Courage, I need it,
And guilt, I feel it,
With my hands
And heart

I’m not a coward, but I did not fight.
I’ve been in the shadows all my god damn life.
Time to hear my call.
Do you really know me?

Now it’s time for me to shed some light.
Out of the shadows, I’ll fight this fight.
I can no longer live a lie.

How could i fight for you?
My own flesh and blood is tied up, too.
But I’ll keep holding on.
It’s too familiar.

So, take from me what you will.
You’re the one that I lean on,
And i’m leaning still.

Though I’d never call me brave,
I’ll never run away from you.

I’ve been late to the fight,
But darling not tonight.
I’ll come running for you.

Courage, I need it.
And guilt, I feel it
With my hands
And heart


This world seems to offer me nothing
Suppose I should fade away
But you know I'm not running
Running away

Can you hear my call, its so loud
Call me coward if you like I'm not proud
Can you feel my heart, its so cold
Call me coward if you like, I won't fold....
