Be Present 03:25
Sick and tired everyday Hearing what everyone has to say Shut your mouth, go away Social affair I see the way they stare No, I don't care Because I know how to Live my life with no sorrows Live like there's no tomorrow Get it all out before it's too late Save the date in the present While it's still pleasant Join me on center stage and go Oh oh oh, etc. Some people stay the same Dirty little picture frame It's not too late to change Same old clothes, same old shirt Worn filled with dust and dirt Brush if off, be an extrovert Because we got to Live life with no sorrows Live like there's no tomorrow Get it all out before it's too late Save the date in the present While it's still pleasant Join me on center stage and go oh oh oh, etc.

Skinny Jeans 02:48
Watching the world order from the back corner at the masquerade Some eyes look my way but don't say hello, maybe some other day Lately life's been bursting at the seams of my skinny jeans So tight, so mean Took off the mask and realized That everything was better when I was 19 Back then stares turned into conversations Men were rarely mean I was still floating inside my bubble And the world was my feet Along the way soaked up society My essence went away Gone but not forgotten Sometimes it seems rotten Will it come back to stay? Lately life's been bursting at the seams of my skinny jeans So tight, so mean Took off the mask and realized That everything was better when I was 19

My daddy always taught me to speak what's on my mind But whenever I'm around you, I get tongue tied So I guess it's time for me to hide behind a song Because my silence has gone on far too long You're a nightmare in the daytime You make me feel so small You see you do this by really doing nothing at all But I can see right through it to the root of your lies You're a horrible person with the worst disguise When I see you out in public with your artificial grin I think about my mother and what might have been Had I heeded her advice on social protocol I never would've got involved with such a screwball If you're got nothing nice to say then don't say it at all But I’ve been quiet too long You're a nightmare in the daytime You make me feel so small You see you do this by really doing nothing at all But I can see right through it to the root of your lies You're a horrible person with the worst disguise You’re horrible, horrible

Polka dots on the shower curtain All alone here hurtin' You said you wish I didn't go But you should've said that two weeks ago (two weeks ago) Time lost, time spent Makin' money tryin' pay the rent Stayin' with you, passin' the time But I still don't have no peace of mind (no peace of mind) Walk down the slanted floor I wait outside your door Hear the beat, beat of my heart When did we grow so far apart? (so far apart) Green walls, red trim It's a shame I didn't let you in On my secret I don't think you can keep it (you can’t keep it) Open the tilted oven Burnin' hot like my lovin' Close the door, growin' inside Eternal morsel, call you mine

Conversion 03:44
The vibe never feels right when your head rests in your hands The pressure building deep inside, no one understands Why does the green come between the life I thought I'd lead? 18 years, no fears You walked right in that's when it started to begin conversion They say it takes three weeks to form a habit Well what about three years? All this time spent running in circles I can't break despite my fears Why does the green come between the life I thought I'd lead? 18 years, no fears You walked right in that's when it started to begin conversion Disease of mystery Tangled up in history Never be the same

Rewind 04:20
She went out for a walk almost forgot their conversation He saw her down the block, hoping she would talk, ease the pain Just like that she put it all into the past Nothing left to say "Goodbye my friend, I'm sorry this had to end, I'll see you as a stranger someday" It was easy to pretend that she'd never seen his face Like their only encounter was this chance footrace He saw she didn't care, couldn't help but stare, her dark watery eyes Rewind all of the time Couldn't get her out of his head Spinning words, round and round There was so much left unsaid Until that day when he saw her dark nothing eyes She faded away And just like that he put her in the past Nothing left to say "Goodbye stranger, just another pretty face in the crowd, trying to find your place"

Flitter flutter, hands likes butter Wanna melt your heart Shy and coy, just the kinda boy To steal my heart I'll take you to the park We'll walk till it's almost dark See my car, we've come so far But I still can't find the time Oh I wonder if you'll ever be mine No more expectations Been here before But I've never wanted something more Cause I'm done playing silly games Always placing blame on some other person I'm at the baggage claim, spinning round your name And I finally see it clearly The many moving parts of this romantic start Hang out on the line, running out of time Vulnerable truth You took my cue, so grateful too Under the tree you kiss me Not the place or time Hoping I'm one step closer to calling you mine
8.
Some people say that they had it better back in the day Well I beg to differ, things are just the same Now we have those tiny little screens Making it hard to believe I think we're pretty great just not strong And this has gone on for sixty years too long So put down your screen and step outside There's so much to fight for, the millennial paradigm The divide between makes no sense When you look past the colors and see what's within The constitution is supposed to protect our rights But I think it might be time for a rewrite
9.
Entitled 03:07
Here comes just another guy, yeah here you come to say hi You don’t even tell me you like me or my songs But instantly I know what’s going on On guard, defensive Someone always has to take it there You think the girls care, well they don't Go be sad and lonely somewhere else The only thing you're entitled to is yourself Yeah, I know my purple hair is cute But I didn't dye it that way for you I'm not some play thing and I’m sure as hell no toy Clearly you didn't learn that lesson as a boy Numerous stories about your type What can you do to make it right? For starters show some class No one likes a guy with their head up their ass Secondly we're all human beings Nothing works without both parties agreeing Lastly, most important The only thing you're entitled to Go fuck yourself
10.
Dollar Signs 03:45
How many times I wish I’d see your face staring back at me in the sea How many times I cried begging please won't you come, see me? But the only change you've got is in your pocket You only see dollar signs You can't see past the bottom life I gave everything up to chase you around But you only bring me down I don't have expensive taste but every now and then I'd like it if you paid When we go to that nice place Four years is all the same, we're not gonna win this game But I don't know who's to blame You only see dollar signs You can't see past the bottom life I gave everything up to chase you around But you only bring me down This wasn't a waste of time but I just don't think you’re mine for eternity I learned some important lessons like how to love without second guessin' But now it's time for me to leave You only see dollar signs You can't see past the bottom life I gave everything up to chase you around But you only bring me You only bring me You only bring me down
11.
Without You 02:52
Misinterpret what I say, act like nothings changed Oh it's such a shame, I thought we'd win this game I wanted you so bad (to follow me) Your love was the best I ever had (but it can't be) Now it's time for me to see if I can live without you No sacrifice, no gain If you loved me you'd find a way My bags are packed I gotta go But for you, what's to show? Who knows what the future holds But now it's time for both of us to try life alone Put ourselves before eternity Oh I'll miss you so I wanted you so bad I wanted you so bad I wanted you so bad (to follow me) Your love was the best I ever had (but it can't be) Now it's time for me to see if I can live I wanted you so bad (to follow me) Your love was the best I ever had Now it's time for me to see if I can live without you

3,000 Miles 03:22
3,000 miles away from anyone I know Walk through the city, don't feel so alone The thought of you creeps in my mind Out of nowhere, all the time The fountains show me what I've come to know Living in a lie, just going with the flow Your words restore my mind I'm not afraid to learn this time My heart is bursting at the seams with an actualized dream I need your arms around me tight Tonight I'm far away, waiting for that day When I can press your lips to mine People watch for hours, listen and unwind Stare at the towers, hopeful state of mind Your touch was so kind Another day, another time

about

Miss Christine's first full length album "Conversion" was recorded over ten days at The Sound Shelter in Franklin, Tennessee. I went into the studio with no idea what my album was going to sound like. No one in my band had heard these songs prior to the session. I handed out charts, we listened through the demo recording, and then we arranged and recorded the songs on the spot. My idea with this approach is that music is the most powerful and fun when it is first created. This album captures a moment in time and recording it changed my life. Huge thanks to everyone who contributed to this project and brought my songs to life.
