Cody Masters Boston, Massachusetts

When I was 8 years old, my father bought me my first record: Green Day's Dookie. And just like that, a prepubescent black kid in a midwest ghetto heard his calling in the brash resonance of crudely struck power chords. It's been a long, strange, awesome ride since then, and I suspect it's only getting stranger and more awesome. Hop on. ... more

Track Name: Speak Too Soon
Speak Too Soon
Written and composed by Cody Masters
I walk these streets a wraith
A hop, skip and a jump away
But short the leap of faith
It takes to let you know

That talk is cheap these days
And love is just a passing craze
But when I meet your gaze
I’m basking in the glow

If I had the nerve
Somewhere in reserve
I’d take a breath and say
That you’ve got the touch
I long for so much
And you take my breath away

But if it came to that
Would you speak too soon?
Would you turn your back?
Would you leave the room?
‘Cause with my dreams intact
What can I do
But start from scratch
And be with you?

I’ll chalk this up to fate
With half a mind to call you late
A fifth that’s taken straight
And a taxi cab window

So give these sheets a taste
Of my arms wrapped around your waist
And secrets I’d keep safe if you’d only say it’s so

If I could reverse
The gift and the curse
That keeps us on the fence
I’d get you alone
And sweetly atone
For all of the suspense

But if it came to that
Would you speak too soon?
Would you kiss me back
Would you leave the room?
‘Cause with my dreams intact
What can I do
But start from scratch
And be with you?

Call off the search
You know I’m here
The last place that you’d look I fear
Wishing won’t work
I’m more than clear
Just give me a moment to have your ear
