Biography

Hey there,

Well, I've lived most of my life in Texas, spent the last few years in LA, but I'm back now. I like to play guitar, sing, take long romantic walks on the beach. I'm also a Virgo.

wait, wrong web site...

Anyway, I'm not gonna sit here and give you a bunch of BS about how my music is the "now sound" or that I'm "taking the world by storm". You're too smart for that...
Listen to the music, that will tell you more about me than anything I could write here. I will say that my music is honest. I mean every word that I sing and every note that I play.

Chris

Update: relocating to Austin TX August '08

Lyrics

Bringin' me Down

Written By: Tondre/Powers

You've got a way of bringin' me down
You've got a way of never being around
And if I ever make even a slight mistake
You've goot a way of always pointing it out

When I hear you
When I hear you call my name
I wanna blow you away

Carry On

Written By: Tondre/Powers

It's the hardest thing
It's the hardest thing to do
But it's the smartest thing
It's the smartest thing for me and you

It's the lesser of two ways
To say goodbye
Instead of talking face to face
We both slowly let it die

It's been a long, long way
Been a long long way to carry on
But here we are
It's been a long, long way
Been a long long way to carry on
But here we are
Yeah here we are
Right now

It's the smallest things
It's the smallest things you do
Don't know what to call this thing
Don't know what to call this thing I'm going through

It's the lesser of two ways
To compromise
I cut my nose to spite my face
But at least I've got my pride

It's been a long, long way
Been a long long way to carry on
But here we are
It's been a long, long way
Been a long long way to carry on
But here we are
Yeah here we are
Right now

Revelation

Written By: Tondre/Powers


Now I'm crashing down
Stealing days from plans I've made
Is it really better to burn out than fade away
Singing angels sound
Nothing like they say
Voices form a chorus
Of the choices that I haven't made

The sky opened right before me
Revelation came without warning
But I won't let it slow me down
The dying of the light commences
But I'm gonna rage against it
Until the day they lay me down

Now I've settled down
I found a place to hide away
From thoughts I couldn't handle
And living life on a southern stage
The feelings that I found
Were beautiful and strange
Seems I've found myself a home
Steps away from more than I can take

The sky opened right before me
Revelation came without warning
But I won't let it slow me down
The dying of the light commences
But I'm gonna rage against it
Until the day they lay me down

Alicia

Written By: Rosenthal/Tondre


Alicia don't love me
I'll only mess with your head
Alicia don't love me
I'll only mess up your bed

And I can't stand the thought of you losing your mind
To a heartbreaker love taker wasting your time
Alicia don't love me
Don't let me into your heart

Alicia don't love me
I'll only mess up your mind
Alicia don't love me
You'll find another in time

And I can't stand the thought of you losing your mind
To a heartbreaker love taker wasting your time
Alicia don't love me
Don't let me into your heart

Is something wrong
Have I stayed to long
Have I said too much
Have I been out of touch

That's right
Not tonight
Alicia don't love me
Don't let me into your heart

Move On

Written By: Tondre/Powers/Melvin

Move On
Tondre/Powers/Melvin

Sittin' still time to kill
In the middle of the road
No one's moving too fast

All the tires silver wires
Getting tired of the art
Of watching everything pass

Take a right or a left
At the dead end sign
It don't matter where it leads

Either way it's the same
Cause it's gotta be better than the current disease
Of the life I lead

It's time to move on
Everything has changed
Now that you've gone
I'll never be the same

Country roads finally closed
Best thing for me I suppose
Though it might not have seemed

Half alive living most of my life
On a razor thin balancing beam
Between work and dreams

It's time to move on
Everything has changed
Now that you've gone
I'll never be the same
