Biography

Chrissy Roberts is a singer songwriter presently living in Jersey City, NJ. After teaching herself the guitar (and a lot of Indigo Girls and Simon and Garfunkel songs) she began performing about 10 years ago. Playing songs written by other people naturally transitioned into a desire to write some of her own and the CD “Patchwork” was born in 2003. Melodic and soothing, these songs are written from a deeply personal perspective as Chrissy explores issues of the heart and soul.
While Chrissy works on a 2nd CD and continues to write new songs, she continues her performances at coffeehouse and winery type venues in the tri-state area. Most recently she performed at a venue in the Brennan Courthouse in Jersey City NJ, opening for the awesome folk trio Red Molly. Headliner performances have included the Warwick Valley Winery where a 3 hour set allows lots of time for a combination of popular and eclectic covers (by artists such as Norah Jones and Lucy Kaplanski) along with originals.

Lyrics

Tonight

Written By: Chrissy Roberts

Tonight

I’ll wait for you
When love tears you down
I’ll wait for you
When hope makes no sound
Twilight holds promise
The light moves inside
Just hold my hand tonight

When fate jumps its course
And the map isn’t made
When you find you’ve lost yourself

Cry on my shoulder
Let me hold this weight
Throw stones at my window
To jolt me awake

Cause tonight
The world doesn’t’ matter now
For all of its sadness
And all you believe
Tonight
Please take my hand now
Please let me hold you

Look into my eyes
On this cool lit night
And feel the fire within me
Because I’ve been hurt too
But tonight its only you
To feel this desire
Is magic its magic

Oh tonight
The world doesn’t matter now
For all of its sadness
And all you believe
Tonight
Please take my hand now
Please let me hold you
Tonight
