After band hopping for a couple fo years Christopher travelled to UK and New York and wrote many of the songs he performs currently. Christopher really honed in his songwriting skills after listening to Damien Rice's first album 'O'. His song 'All For Love' was written for his mother after she was diagnosed with cancer and it proving to be very popular to all those who hear the moving lyrics.

Currently performing around the major city of Auckland, New Zealand with his covers band 'Relapse' Christopher has intigrated many of his original songs into the nightly line up proving popular with all those who hear it.

Christopher is currently lucky enough to be sponsored by Cort guitars, Ernie Ball, and Laney amplification but at this date has no Record Company affiliation.

Lyrics

All For Love (A tribute)

Written By: Christopher Reed

Time is not a healer, it's our body's mortal sin,
And these chemicals are running, from the needles they put,
and this life is dripping slowly from a shiny plastic bag,
With words of love, and words of grief, and words to make you laugh.

Emptiness is filling up the gap that was erased,
By a hundred thousand memories the future won't replace,
And these stars are looking closer now than they ever did before,
Maybe they'll look different if I lay down on the floor.

Well there is still tomorrow when you think there is no hope,
There is love and loving energy in a place where no one goes,
There's a clock that keeps on ticking,
With a second hand that shines, and maybe there's a road to heaven, or maybe there's a sign.

But it's all for love, it's all for love
And it's all for love, it's all for love

Enemies are strangers only waiting for their cue,
To change what seems to them to be a different point of view,
So if they are thinking algebra, then you must think with words,
Respect to what the doctor's say, but respect to what you've learned.

There is nothing in the world that changes anything at all,
Just don't let this be, your final downfall,
And maybe there's a place out there just waiting to be found,
Or maybe it's the kind of thing, that will make you come around.

When it's all for love, it's all for love
It's all for love, it's all for love

So love, give us strength, give us time, give me all you try to give away
When you tell me, with each new day
That though it hurts, I just can't change it at all

And it's all for love, it's all for love

There is still tomorrow when you think there is no hope,
There is love and loving energy in a place where no-one goes,
There's a clock that keeps on ticking, with a second hand that shines,
And maybe there's a road to heaven, or maybe theres a sign,

But it's all for love, it's all for love
It's all for love, it's all for love
