Christina Capatides

BandFolkAcoustic

A female folk artist with refreshingly intense lyrics, catchy hooks, and strong melodies. A breath of fresh air in an era, where music is dominated by computerized sounds and sexual connotations. Christina Capatides' unique, raspy voice will stick in your mind and soothe you.

Biography

My biggest influences are: Billy Joel, Simon and Garfunkle, and Andrew McMahon (of Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin). My lyrics set me apart from other bands. They are deep enough to provide a sort of social commentary for adults. Additionally, they are not explicit. Thus, my music is suitable for all ages. In my opinion, that sets my music apart, as well.

Lyrics

Speechless

Written By: Christina Capatides

I can’t hold it in ‘cause it’s got to come out
And I’m just a kid now in this crazy house
You got me wondering just what I’ll do
You got me thinking about losing you
You got me scared now; I’m just not sure
If I can pick out words anymore

Now I’m speechless
Yes, I’m speechless
You got me roaming through these streets
Without any words

I’ve got to break free ‘cause I’m losing ground
And unselfishly falling back down
You got me wondering just what I’ll do
You got me thinking about losing you
You got me spineless; I just can’t breathe
And I’m incapable to really see

Why I’m speechless
Yes, I’m speechless
You got me
You got me
Without any words

Speechless
‘Cause you’re speechless
They got us rolling through these streets
Without any words

Good Morning Love

Written By: Christina Capatides

She said, “I like the silence in between your songs”
He said, “I live to keep my music turned on
And I would never dream of turning this volume down
You’re like the smoke that’s stricken our industrial town”

Do not; do not pale at this sight
We all need to stretch before the morning light
And yes, you’ve been sheltered by humanity’s glove
Welcome to our real world
Good morning love

Iron-clad train tracks cut through our youth
Health of a nation depends on the sweet tooth
And I can’t find one character in this blurry crowd
Yes, everyone has turned hypocritical now

Do not; do not pale at this sight
We all need to stretch before the morning light
And yes, you’ve been sheltered by humanity’s glove
Welcome to our real world
Good morning love

Leather journal of a once honest man
Fell in too deep with this consumer clan
His pupils now are gilded and his appetite’s wet
The last heart of silver is now walled in this jet
If the prophet has not spoken, then we’re not sinners yet

Our men judge more with their eyes than with bare hands
I am left a stranger in these enemy lands

Do not; do not pale at this sight
We all need to stretch before the morning light
And yes, you’ve been sheltered by humanity’s glove
Welcome to our real world
Good morning love
Welcome to our real world
Good morning love

Jesse James

Written By: Christina Capatides

Make me grovel when you reprimand
And haunt me solely when you’re close at hand
I don’t know whether to love or fear
Heroes rid you of complacent cheer

When you look back at that fifty-seven grand
Does regret burn like flames in your hand?

Oh Jesse, why’d you do us wrong?
Oh Jesse, you’re Missouri’s song

Bear resemblance to the Frontier West
Defend the farmers and destroy the rest
You; legend of the nineteenth century
Wish that Bobby Ford had shown you some mercy

When you look back at that northern machine
Does Edison just make you scream?

Oh Jesse, why’d you do us wrong?
Oh Jesse, you’re Missouri’s song

Make me grovel when you reprimand
And haunt me solely when you’re close at hand

Oh Jesse, why’d you do us wrong?
Oh Jesse, you’re Missouri’s song (2x)
