Biography


Hi, my name is Christy Ellen, and I’ve been singing and writing songs since I was knee-high !

Born in NZ, I moved to Japan when I was 12, and spent most of my late teens and twenties creating, recording and performing music, with a variety of different artists, including many of those who guest-starred on my weekly show, “Jukebox TV”.

‘Took five years off to marry my muse and have kids; and now, back home after two decades, I am in the process of finishing my first entirely self-penned album.

This time around, I will actually be playing most of the instruments myself, having (finally!) picked up the guitar in earnest after the birth of my second daughter, last March.

[ Please excuse the extreme shoddiness of said guitar in these early demos ~ I'm getting miles better every day, I promise ! ;) ]

Hope you like what you hear. More to come…

How Long ?

Written By: Christy Ellen

How Long ?
(G-Em-S-S/G-D^-C^-Em^-D^/Em+-G+-C+-D+) [K1]

I’ve longed for you, so long, so long
I’ve longed for you
I’ve longed for you, so long, so long
I’ve longed for you

Years go by
But my heart takes no great notice of the
Passing time

Nothing’s changed
These thoughts of you refuse to dislodge
From my brain

And so (and so)
My love (my love)
Just grows (it grows)
And grows….

I’ve longed for you, so long, so long
I’ve longed for you
And I’ve belonged to you, for so long, so long
I’ve belonged to you

Missing you
Is such a defining part of my character now

I’d hardly know
What to do with my restless soul
If you found your way home somehow

(n’ somehow)
My love (my love)
Just grows (it grows)
And grows….

I’ve longed for you, so long, so long
I’ve longed for you
And I’ve waited true, for so long, so long
I’ve waited true

I’ve longed for you…
For so long, but how long ?

I’ve waited, true…
For so long, but how long ?

I’ve belonged to you…
For so long, but how long ?

How long ? How long ?
How long ? How long ?
How long ? How long ?

Whisper My Name

Written By: Christy Ellen

Whisper My Name
(G-D-Em-C)

Softly, whisper my name… then
Gently, slide into love <3

Now you and I are one:
Shining like the moon, burning like the sun.

It’s over way too soon; till you

Softly, whisper my name… again

Hold on tight ~ don’t let go
Once was lost, now I’m found <3

N’ you and I alone:
Glistening like the waves that beat upon this shore.

Your love makes me brave enough

To whisper your name… again, again, again, again !

So Fine

(G-C-G/C-G-C-D/F-G)

So Fine
You're mine
Tonight

This time
Our two souls (will)
Unite

I ‘been waiting all my life to find this
I ’been saving all my love for this kiss

So Calm
Inside
This Storm

So Close
So Tight
So Warm

Every broken heart has made me stronger
All enabling me to love you longer

A----ah

I ’been waiting all my life to find you
Gonna spend the rest of it beside you

So Fine
You're mine
Tonight

This time
Our two hearts (will)
Unite

So Calm
Inside
This Storm

So Close
So Tight
So Warm
