about

Kevin Cox’s debut album explores the full spectrum of emotions during a time of transition. The in-Between is a journey from the messy, difficult feelings of transition to a place where we belong. Along the way, we hear stories of loss, of finding shelter, and of turning that shelter into hope and positivity. The album features a balance of distorted and purer guitar tones to accompany lyrics that elicit a sense of longing for arrival in a place with more certainty.

Upon graduating from Ursinus College in May 2015, things felt bittersweet for Kevin. He didn’t know exactly what was next professionally, and he was watching his close friends spread throughout the country and the world. While trying to move on from the positives that were left behind, Kevin also discovered the beauty in the freedom of what lay ahead and in the people he had by his side. He used this freedom and support to write his first full-length album and to pair up with Chris Cachuela, owner of Chaplin’s in Spring City, PA, to make the songs come to life in the way we hear on the record. Chris co-produced, mixed, and mastered the album.

Track Name: Welcome to the In-Between
Lyrics:

They say there’s no place like home
But what if it’s not known
I have a place to lay my head,
But it’s no permanent bed
I swear that I’m not scared of the future
But my brain feels held together by suture

Welcome to the in-between
Where all the roads converge
Where there’s no ground below and the sky seems so far away
Woah, Welcome to the in-between

Sometimes the doors seem all wide open
I think that I’m seeing right I am hoping
And I’m searching for the ground to hold onto
But it’s nowhere in sight can I hold onto you
I don’t wanna just sit here and stew
Together can we find a way to break through?

Welcome to the in-between
Where all the roads converge
Where there’s no ground below and the sky seems so far away
Woah, Welcome to the in-between
But it doesn’t have to be so bad

Welcome to the in-between, Yeah (4x)
Track Name: What's Left Behind
Lyrics:

I’ve been driving along this familiar road
And thinkin’ about how I thought I’d implode
You can make a list of pros and cons, you can make a list of rights and wrongs
But in the end we all might lose control

No I’m not ready to go
I wish it weren’t true but I know
You can’t have it all and so
I try to move on from what’s left behind

I’ve been singing now this old familiar note
And thinking about how this song got wrote
You can sing along my melody, you can make your own harmony
But the beauty in a song is that I can stay here, stay here

No I’m not ready to go
I wish it weren’t true but I know
You can’t have it all and so
I try to move on from what’s left behind

And I try to move on from what’s left behind
With my words my melodies
With my hope my opportunities

And through it all I can’t help but sing

No I’m not ready to go
I wish it weren’t true but I know
You can’t have it all and so
No I’m not ready to go
I wish it weren’t true but I know
You can’t have it all and so
I try to move on from what’s left behind

And I try to move on from what’s left behind
Track Name: The Warmth of May
Lyrics:

Who would’ve thunk I’d be cold today
Who would’ve thunk I’d be the one to say
I can’t wait to just have it my way
I can’t wait to have the warmth of may

Feelin’ lonely in the snow
It’s a little thing you know
But it feels like the world is
Crashing down

Who would’ve thunk I’d be cold today
Who would’ve thunk I’d be the one to say
I can’t wait to just have it my way
I can’t wait to have the warmth of may

The snow shows that there is beauty here
In this so-called place of fear
But I feel there is so much more
In the spring

Who would’ve thunk I’d be cold today
Who would’ve thunk I’d be the one to say
I can’t wait to just have it my way
I can’t wait to have the warmth of may
Track Name: Always Have
Lyrics:

Sometimes every day is a fight, a search for a candle light
Maybe it’s made up fright, or even a worthless plight
But I’ll always have a song, I will always have a song

Sometimes every day is a dream, no need to search for a beam
Life’s a relaxing stream, and maybe we’re on the same team
And I’ll always have a song, I will always have a song

I will always have a song, will you sing it back to me?
I will always have a song, will you sing along with me?

Sometimes every day is typical, it almost feels satirical
You’re looking for a miracle, for life to become lyrical
Well I’ll always have a song, I will always have a song

I will always have a song, will you sing it back to me?
I will always have a song, will you sing along with me?
We can be anything, and we’ll always have a song

Sometimes a song’s invisible, and other times invincible
But it never hurts to sing, so let the lyrics ring

We will always have a song, we will always have a song
Track Name: Let It Out
Lyrics:

Have you felt like the sun was dim?
Or have you felt like you weren’t meant to swim?
Have you felt like your heart’s tied to the tracks?
Did you let it out or did you hold back?

It feels like a fall, compacted in a ball.
Feels like elation with infatuation
Let it out, let it out
Let it out, let it out for us all to hear

Have you felt like it’s all fallin’ into place?
Like life’s deck of cards dealt you an ace?
Have you felt like you can’t do any wrong?
Did you let it out or did you hide it all along?

It feels like a fall, compacted in a ball.
Feels like elation with infatuation
Let it out, let it out
Let it out, let it out for us all to hear

Come on and let it out (4x)

It feels like a fall, compacted in a ball.
Feels like elation with infatuation
Let it out, let it out
Let it out, let it out for us all to hear
Track Name: The Shadow
Lyrics:

Searching for meaning in a world that has none
What am I needing, some things to be undone?
Searching for feeling when I have apathy
Why am I reeling, looking for sympathy?

Healing from hating, some things just take their time
Saving by singing, and those words could be mine
Bleeding but believing, some day it will be fine
Helping by hoping, stand up and sing this line

What am I seeing, why am I overcast?
Longing for clearance, I know this sight can’t last
What am I feeling, where did my sunlight go?
Longing for substance, a reason for my low

Healing from hating, some things just take their time
Saving by singing, and those words could be mine
Bleeding but believing, some day it will be fine
Helping by hoping, stand up and sing this line
Stand up and sing this line

What do I want, what do I need, and where is it found?
When it’s all hidden in the clouds?
What do I want, what do I need, and what do I say?
When my skies are all covered in gray?

Let the shadow give me hope (4x)

Healing from hating, some things just take their time
Saving by singing, and those words could be mine
Bleeding but believing, some day it will be fine
Helping by hoping, stand up and sing this line
Stand up and sing this line
Stand up, stand up
Let the shadow give me hope
Track Name: Her Future Awaits
Lyrics:

She sure gave it her all, and still took a fall
She tried to stand tall, but still she felt small
And so she’s gotta go, her future awaits
I said show me your might, and she put up a fight
But sometimes it ain’t right to chase the same light
And so she’s gotta go, her future awaits
And it’s too bright for me to see

A new mile, a new place
A new style, a new chase
The same smile, the same face
Boston, here she comes

She don’t wanna say bye, and neither do I
But sometimes a new hi/high comes with a sad goodbye
And so she’s gotta go, her future awaits
Although I want to say, “hey you should stay”
I know I must convey the truth today
And so she’s gotta go, her future awaits
And it’s so bright my eyes can’t see

A new mile, a new place
A new style, a new chase
The same smile, the same face
Boston, here she comes

And it’s too bright for me to see
And it’s so bright my eyes can’t see
A future so bright
Boston, here she comes
Boston, here she comes
Boston, are you ready?
‘Cuz my girl, here she comes
Here she comes
Here she comes
Track Name: Shelter
Lyrics:

Won’t you lay in the mud with me, Oh oh oh
Yeah, get stuck in the mud with me, Oh oh oh
I will hold the umbrella for you if you will hold it for me
I will hold the umbrella for you if you will hold it for me
Oh oh oh...

Why do you run, run away
Every time a storm is approachin’ you
Why do you run, run away
We can take some shelter and let this one pass through

Won’t you lay in the mud with me, Oh oh oh
Yeah, get stuck in the mud with me, Oh oh oh
I will hold the umbrella for you if you will hold it for me
I will hold the umbrella for you if you will hold it for me
Oh oh oh...

Won’t you run, run away
Run with me if I say bye to Philadelphia
Won’t you run, run away
Run with me to the shores of California
Won’t you stay, stay with me
Together we can find a way to break free
Won’t you stay, stay with me
Together we can look into the sea

Won’t you lay in the mud with me, Oh oh oh
Yeah, get stuck in the mud with me, Oh oh oh
I will hold the umbrella for you if you will hold it for me
I will hold the umbrella for you if you will hold it for me
Woah-oh-oh...

Won’t you lay in the mud with me, Oh oh oh
Yeah, get stuck in the mud with me, Oh oh oh
We can hold the umbrella together, you and me
Yeah, let’s hold the umbrella together, you and me
Oh oh oh...
Track Name: Bring Us Together
Lyrics:

There’s a battle out there
A battle of the gods, or lack thereof
And there’s a war out there
Of who’s right and wrong, with no way to know

And the battle goes on
And the war goes on

This world has questions we can’t answer
This world has answers that don’t matter
This world has people all after love
Sometimes that comes with a dove not a shove

Some respect it can bring us together
An open mind it can bring us together
Some love it can bring us together
This life, it can bring us together

Some respect it can bring us together
An open mind it can bring us together
Some love it can bring us together
This life, it can bring us together

This song it can bring us together
This night it can bring us together
This moment, it can bring us together
This line, it can bring us together

Let the music bring us together
Sing with me it’ll bring us together
Strike a chord it’ll bring us together
Let the music bring us together
Track Name: Reward
Lyrics:

As I’m sittin’ here waitin’ for the train, the train
I realize it’s not just about umbrella in the pouring rain
Sometimes we need sunglasses to enjoy the sun, the sun
Before we can celebrate what we’ve done

And though I know I’m fine on my own
It certainly hasn’t hurt to have known
I’ve got some shelter or a major chord
We’re makin’ every day feel like a reward

Some days we try to figure this thing out on our own, our own
And then we get into the car with no destination known.
Every moment on this journey no matter how far, how far
We’re gonna tell ‘em about who we are

And though I know I’m fine on my own
It certainly hasn’t hurt to have known
I’ve got some shelter or a major chord
We’re makin’ every day feel like a reward

We’re on this journey together you and me
We’re all in this together, can’t you see?
Look around as we are one tonight
And when we leave here don’t forget, together we can take flight.
Flight, yeah

And though I know I’m fine on my own
It certainly hasn’t hurt to have known
I’ve got some shelter or a major chord
We’re makin’ every day feel like a reward
Track Name: Be Free
Lyrics:

Would you sit next to me
Lay by the sea
Look at the stars and be free

Would you come sit by the fire
Take a break from what’s transpired
Grasp this moment and be inspired

Just take a fresh ounce of breath
Just take one moment here with me
Open up your mind
Maybe you’ll find
Just how amazing this world can be

I know just how we are
We push ourselves so far
All to be a star

I know you gave it your all
You’re in for the long haul
But can you break before you fall

Just take a fresh ounce of breath
Just take one moment here with me
Open up your mind
Maybe you’ll find
Just how amazing this world can be

Open up your mind
Maybe you’ll find
Just how amazing this world can be

Would you sit next to me
Lay by the sea
Look at the stars and be free
Track Name: Cali Skies
Lyrics:

I’ve been searchin’ for so very long
For a place that I can sing my song
And for a girl to sing the harmonies
With a voice that’ll bring me to my knees

As I drive along this coast it’s you on my mind
And I’m hopin’ it’s not you who’d be left behind
As I breathe this Cali air, yeah I might find
Everything I’m lookin’ for has now aligned

I’m out here singin’ under those Cali skies
I’ve got the ocean right here by my side
The place I’ve always dreamt to call my home
Now will you find me here or will I move on

I feel there’s something big comin’ along
Maybe it’s a place for me where I belong
Will I be oceanside feelin’ that breeze
The one that freed me from days like these

I’m makin’ sure that life don’t pass me by
But now I’m sittin’ here takin’ a deep sigh
Cuz sometimes it comes with a tough goodbye
And when I say how I feel I don’t tell a lie

I’m out here singin’ under those Cali skies
I’ve got the ocean right here by my side
The place I’ve always dreamt to call my home
Now will you find me here or will I move on

I’m out here singin’ under those Cali skies
I’ve got the ocean right here by my side
The place I’ve always dreamt to call my home
Now will you find me here or will I move on

I’m singin’ California, woah
California, woah

I’m out here singin’ under those Cali skies
I’ve got the ocean right here by my side
The place I’ve always dreamt to call my home
Now will you find me here or will I move on
Track Name: Leave the In-Between
Lyrics:

Can we make in known?
Can we find a home?

Won’t you search along with me?
Won’t you sing along with me?
To make it known
And find a home

We’ll find a home (3x)

Where we belong (4x)

We’ll leave the in-Between (1x)
leave the in-Between (3x)

Woah
