Biography

Christopher Cohen is a Texas native singer/songwriter who’s driven by love for both music and writing. Midway through his senior year in college, Chris began keeping a diary about his personal thoughts and experiences with life, relationships, love and heartbreak. It is here, where he started using excerpts from his diary as inspiration for songs that would later end up on the first E.P. Though never having picked up a guitar before, Chris approached a childhood friend of his to help him learn a few chords and rhythms so that he could put his lyrics to music.
Since then, Chris has relocated to Los Angeles, California to pursue his songwriting career full time and it’s clearly evident that he’s been working hard to improve and produce heartfelt music that speaks to enlighten, comfort and awaken the soul of others. An up and coming performer, producer and songwriter, this charming crooner is surely one to keep an eye on.

Lyrics

lf You Only Knew

Written By: Chris Cohen

If You Only Knew

When it’s you and me
And there’s no one else around
I know that you’ve been there for me
The feelings so profound

You feel like home
A place where I can go
I feel a burning fire for you
I feel it in my bones

You made me see
You always understood
It’s true I smile at you
When you walk into the room

You made me feel
Alive and well
You brought love back into my life
And I wanna thank you

If you
only knew then you
might understand
oh oh oh
you might understand
oh oh oh
you might understand
oh oh oh

Interlude

When I look in your eyes
Our first night comes to mind
And the way I held you close to me
On a cold dark winter night

Then you kissed me on cheek
Just to say goodnight
when I first saw you baby
I had stars in my eyes

Chorus

Now I feel at home
My puzzle's been complete
It's all because of you
If you only knew

Burning

Written By: Chris Cohen

Burning

I want you to believe
In you and me baby
Yeah I want you to see
That it means everything
Take a walk with me
A stroll along the sea
Take a chance on me
I won’t let you down

Let me take you in
See what it feels like
You’ve got me burning tonight
Let me hold your hand
You know I won’t let go
You’ve got me burning you know

I’ve tried to think
Of all the simple things
That I could do
To make your life easier
And I’ve tried to prove
Myself to you
If you could only see
What you mean to me
Inside of me, inside of you
Burns a love that’s hard to fool
Burns a love that’s so so true, yeah yeah!

Chorus

We’ll live and we’ll die
Spend the rest of our lives asking ourselves why
We’ll live and we’ll learn
When the tables have turned, if we don’t try

Chorus
