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.

Track Name: Be Present
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.
Track Name: Skinny Jeans
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
Track Name: Nightmare in the Daytime
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
Track Name: Green Walls, Red Trim
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
Track Name: Conversion
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
Track Name: Rewind
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"
Track Name: Baggage Claim
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
Track Name: The Millennial Paradigm
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
Track Name: Entitled
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
Track Name: Dollar Signs
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
Track Name: Without You
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
Track Name: 3,000 Miles
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
