about

This is an album I wrote and recorded in the summer of 2013, one of the best summers of my life. I listened to this the other day and I sound really young and naive. Those were the days... Anyways, this album has actually been floating around for the last few years. There's a few hand-made physical copies out in the world, but now it's available for everyone! So I hope you all enjoy this time capsule documenting an important part of my life. xoxo -Chris

Track Name: If You Had A Good Time
If you had a good time, let me know it
‘cause I don’t know what a good time is
If you’re wanting my love, can’t you show it?
‘cause I don’t know what attraction is

I would share my love with you
But no one wants me to
They’re trying to keep you safe
But I swear that I won’t hurt you
So if you had a good time, let me know it

You were always the one that I wanted
But I’ll admit that you’re not the first
But these moments with you really changed me
Yet, all these people will do their worst and hurt me...
If you give me a chance, I would show you
all the reasons to love yourself
If you give me a chance, I would hold you
every time you were overwhelmed

You can make up your mind if you wanted
There’s no reason for you to be haunted
by the shadows and ghosts of your past
and certain guys who gave you hell
We can help each other if we wanted
Won’t you tie my shoe for me, darling?
I will pick up the pieces and help you find a reason to be well
Track Name: Ettie Smashes The Rolex As Greedy Stock Market Brokers Look On In Horror. She Then Proceeds To The Chapel Where The Owls Await Her Arrival
I never know what time it is
Because I’m always wasting time with you
And I never know just what to do
I never know where to go
Because I’m always getting lost with you
And I just never know what to do

And I just think about tomorrow and hope that I’m with you
And I’m scared your sister’s gonna kill me but that won’t change the truth

I never know just what to say
Because I always make weird sounds with you
And we laugh it off like we’re on shrooms

I think about you all the time
And I hope you think about me too
Because I wouldn’t know what I would do

And I just think about tomorrow and hope that you’re alright
And I just think about the times we laughed throughout the night

And I just sit here painting visions of laughter in my head
And I think that I’ll head over and spend the day with you instead.
Track Name: Life is Boring
Sitting in the dark, I never thought I’d see the light again
Shadows in my heart would drain the life from me, it’d never end
And I don’t know what to think of these turn of events, I’m suddenly amused
It’s so hard to admit you’re the reason I’ve changed, now everything is new

Life is boring, unless I’m here with you
Life is boring, but I think I’ll make it through
Life is boring, unless I’m here with you
Life is boring...

I used to live my life thinking what was wrong was right and now it’s come back to haunt me
But I guess that I’m to blame. I’ll take this walk of shame
so I could leave this past behind me
It was love at second sight and I knew it the night we sat around the flames
And I don’t know what to think of these turn of events, my life’s forever changed

And I can’t help but feel these feelings
I know that people won’t approve
Your opinion’s all that matters
I know together we can’t lose

And darling, I swear that I won’t hurt you
I don’t care what others say
I just want to make you happy
Like the way that you made me

Life is boring...
but not with you
Track Name: Song For A Fragile Heart
You’re still afraid to get close to somebody
Tell me who hurt you and I’ll make them sorry
This world is not that bad, please let me show you
Give me your hand and help me get to know you

And if you ever feel alone
Feel free to call me on my mobile phone
I’ll always be right by your side
But just take your time
I’ll be here all night

When I’m with you it’s just eternal laughter
Nobody else around us even matters
I think that you and I’d look good together
I hope these priceless moments last forever

And if you let me see the pain inside
I promise to make everything alright
I only want you to be happy and care-free

And though we act like no one else can see us
I can’t help but feel there’s a wall between us
Maybe one day you’ll let your guard down for me
when you realize that you’re my one and only
Track Name: This World Is A Frightening Place Without My Twin
You’re the only one I love
I’m so invested in your love
And it scares me that I can’t see all the beauty unless you’re here with me...
Track Name: The Boy Who Couldn't Fall In Love Fell In Love
I met you at a crucial moment
I was struggling to see the light
You were there with the saddest eyes
Yet, somehow you saved my life

I could not believe it...
Girl, I never thought I’d fall in love

Many nights I’ve spent alone are now spent talking with you
Let me stay in your atmosphere, so that my dreams could still come true

I spend most of my time with you
There’s nothing I’d rather do
I just want to be in your life for as long as you’d let me stay

I want to open up to you and tell you everything inside
They say that love’s a scary thing, but at least I said I’d try
Track Name: White Girl Savior
You’re the white girl savior of my lonely heart
‘cause you make me feel alright the times we are together.
My life is so much better when I see your fragile smile.
Six long years of solitude
But somehow you found me
You let me know that I’m not alone
And that we’re of the same breed

And I can’t remember a time before I met you
It’s like we’ve never been apart
I feel at home when I could feel the beating of your heart
And I never thought that we’d be inspirations for each other’s twisted minds
We laugh so hard and we forget about the time

Sixteen was a boring age
I thought I knew it all
I let down my defenses and learned the introspective of a kid who’s been let down
Time can heal a lonely heart
and now that I’m with you
I forgot my past, I hope this lasts
Because I’m happy in your light
Track Name: I Can Wait
In your eyes, I recognize all the pain
Yeah, you can’t hide it
And I feel I’m locked inside it
I am with you all the way even though you still can’t trust me
I can wait, I won’t be sorry
‘cause the love I have for you is keeping me
from going back to being the slave I used to be...

With you, I’m free to be myself
No more pretending to be someone
With you, I’ve got nothing to lose
I feel safe with you around
But we both add a bit of danger
‘Cause we’re not afraid to die
And I’ve never felt this way for someone else
You made me a stronger person
Can’t you tell?

And I know you don’t believe me, but I hope someday you will
If it takes me years to prove it, I’ll never leave
I’ll be here still
By your side, I’ll always be

You’ll never feel like you’re alone ‘cause you and I are something special We have a different set of needs
You are always on my mind
And nobody can replace you
You are truly one of a kind
And I hope one day you’ll finally come to see
I am not how other people tend to be...
Track Name: False Relapse Into Yesterday's Depression
It’s hard to share my feelings with a brick wall
‘cause every time I do, I take a big fall

Into the darkness
The world will harness me ‘til I die
I never meant to make things awkward
Why can’t we try and do this for ourselves?

I swear there’s still life in me, don’t give up yet.
I’d probably be dead if we hadn’t met

The girl of my dreams
She sits beside me
Why can’t I see her?
Why do I always push away those who try to be near and help me love myself?

And I can’t let this darkness suck me in
Maybe you can help me love again
I can’t believe it’s happening to me
(The shadows have returned)
This cycle of despair won’t set me free
(Sit back and watch me burn)

And I can’t let this darkness suck you in
Maybe I can help you love again
Forget the ones who hurt you in the past
(Just think about tomorrow)
Just leave it up to me to make you laugh
(There won’t be any sorrow)
Track Name: Early Evening Over-Thinking
Please don’t let me down
I’ll do anything to prove that I’m worthy of you
Please don’t mess around
I’ll do anything to show that my love for you just grows

I know that games that you play
Don’t play me
I’ll never live it down
How can I get you to stay?
‘Cause lately, I’m living in the now
I was lost, but now I’m found

Please don’t run away
I’ll do anything to prove that I’m worthy of you
You’re the only one
Who can help me overcome all the things I used to run from
Track Name: Love Letter To A Friend
I want to go back to the times when all the memories were good
You helped me open up my eyes to see the things I never would
And you’re so mesmerizing
You’re the one, there’s no denying it
So please, can’t you see that you make my life worth living?

I feel nobody understands just why I feel the way I do
They say you’re still only a child, oh, but I know that isn’t true
And you’re so under-rated
And it’s so frustrating to me
Can’t they see that you make my life worth living?

You’re the only one I’ve got who can make me feel like I belong
In this cold and dismal place we live in
Maybe we were meant to be...
But unless we break the rules, you and I will never know
what could have been

So why don’t we just take a chance?
I know it’s easier said than done
I’ll give you time to think about it
But I’m sure that you’re the one

And my heart’s tired of breaking
But I’ll keep on waiting for you
‘Cause it’s true that you make my life worth living.
Track Name: Early Evening Over-Thinking (Pt. 2)
I’ll never come back home if I’d have to go back alone
It’s not easy to change
I think we both agree, you could live life without me
But that doesn’t mean that we can’t try...

Please don’t let me down
I’ll do anything to prove that I’m worthy of you
Please don’t mess around
I’ll do anything to show that my love for you just grows

I know that games that you play
Don’t play me
I’ll never live it down
How can I get you to stay?
‘Cause lately, I’m living in the now
I was lost, but now I’m found
Track Name: My Happy Life (To Be Continued)
I wake up and I think about you
I wonder just how you’re doing
I never wanna be without you
It only makes me feel more human
I never wanna be without your crinkled-nose smile
and your rock ‘n’ roll style
You make me feel like I can do anything
Well... almost anything
Oh, you’ve got nothing to do
You’re lying in bed again and sleeping all day
Yeah, you’ve got nothing to do
So why don’t I just spend some time with you
And then we’ll both be lazy
Oh girl, you’re driving me crazy!
Turning dark thoughts into poetic phrases
Oh, I wouldn’t change this for anything

You and I are a different species
I guess we’re just two of a kind
Make me laugh with your morbid humor
What’s going on in our minds??
I never wanna be without your crinkled-nose smile
and your rock ‘n’ roll style
You make me feel like I can do anything
Well... almost anything
Oh, you’ve got nothing to do
You’re lying in bed again and sleeping all day
Yeah, you’ve got nothing to do

So why don’t I just spend some time with you
And then we’ll both be lazy
Oh girl, you’re driving me crazy!
Turning dark thoughts into poetic phrases
I wouldn’t change this for anything.
