about

Chuck Schaeffer Band Fort Lauderdale, Florida

While he was already well-established as a slick guitarist, what Chuck Schaeffer really wanted most was recognition as a great songwriter, to front his own band and create his own sound. That was the birth of CSB.
Their songs are overflowing with compelling melodies, clever, infectious hooks, great solos and thought-provoking lyrics. It's immediately interesting and unmistakably original.

Track Name: Tincture Of Time aka Kaitlin's Song
Every time the pain begins to break your heart
you wonder if it's gonna last forever
Even when a good thing falls completely apart
may better things can finally fall together
You can't lose fear until you face it
There is no drug that can erase it
It's Tincture Of time
and a wide open mind
You can't lose fear until you face it
Every time I look into your beautiful eyes
I can tell you won't give in to sorrow
You have found a secret way to soar like a bird
on that a cold wind that kicked you
from here into tomorrow
You can't lose fear until you face
You're the only one that can erase it
You didn't get a choice, but you still got a voice
You can't lose fear until you face it
You can't lose fear until you face it
There is no drug that can erase it
You can't lose fear until you face it
And it can't be true love if you fake it
It's Tincture Of Time
And a wide open mind...

Track Name: Diamond In The Rough
Don't give up,
do the best that you can do
or the long days and nights will surely get to you and when you feel
you've really had enough
remember you're a diamond in the rough,
diamond in the rough
still a lump of coal,
Diamond in the rough
what will be your goal
Diamond in the rough
gotta see it through,
Diamond in the rough,
do the best that you can do
Whoa, diamond in the rough
Stay on top
keep your vision clear
or your dream
might just disappear and when you think
you've really had enough
remember you're a diamond in the rough
Diamond in the rough,
Oh, diamond in the rough,
Stop being who you were,
so you can become who you are
who you are, who you are,
Come on Diamond in the rough
Whoa, Diamond in The Rough,
are you a Diamond In The Rough.....

Track Name: Don't Listen to This Song
I know you don't care what I think
you tell all your friends I'm a freak.
put your backbone where you're wishbone seems to be,
and don't ever listen to me.
Don't listen to this song
It might go on too long
you might find out you're wrong,
Don't listen, don't listen
Don't change or realize
you're never, ever gonna get
Wi-i-ise,
don't listen to
Don't listen to this song.
Everyone knows you're opinion
Everyone knows you don't listen,
Take your head from the place that doesn't shine,
'cause your opinion isn't mine.
your ideas are like roses in the snow
so cold they never get to grow.
don't listen to this song,
it might go on too long,
you might find out you're wrong
don't listen, don't listen
don't change or realize and
forget about getting wi-i-ise,
Don't listen to, don't listen to this song
Get outta your own damn way !
you're your own worst enemy !
What the hell's wrong with you?

Track Name: My Goddess
My Goddess,
Oh how you changed my life,
your love is rare to me
And what you share with me,

My Goddess,
oh I adore you so, and how much I'm afraid to show
is something we both already know,
My Goddess...

Is it love
or just a self fulfilling prophecy, My Goddess?
Is it love or are we both just becoming
what we want the other one to be?

My Goddess,
The sum of my unfounded fears
Simply disappears
with your burning kiss and my deepest wish

My Goddess,
Our love is like a mystery
and everything you give to me
is so much more than I deserve
I'll never lose my nerve again,
My Goddess

Is it love or just a self-fulfilling prophecy, My Goddess?
Is it love, or are we both more afraid of being lonely
and oh so alone?
