about

This is the second EP by Christie Isaac.

"‘One’ does not consist of sad, bawled out songs composed in a melodramatic manner. [Christie Isaac] has managed to pull off a handful simple, authentic love songs in true singer songwriter tradition. Within the indie/folk landscape today that is far from easy. Christie elegantly avoids the cliches, both musically and lyrically." - Mergemag mergemusicmagazine.com/cd-reviews-christie-grinham-ep-one/

Track Name: One
One time
I lost myself in your eyes
hands behind your head
intimate and beside
you I felt the tide
pull on my heart and mind
you left me behind

Now I feel this open heart of mine
Now I feel like this could be the time

One day
I lost myself in the lake
found I could not swim
sinking further to hide
the ballast and the sky
pull on my heart and mind
you left me behind

Now I feel this open heart of mine
Now I feel like this could be the time

Now I feel this open heart of mine
Now I feel like this could be the time
Track Name: It Seems To Me
It seems to me
That standing here throwing stones at the sea
With you lying at home in my bed
Has thoughts running, running
like a train driving through my head

I know it can be hard
To open up your heart
As the callous softens the skin begins to breath
I know it can be hard
To open up your heart
If you never try you never will believe

It seems to me
That driving across this small country
With other places on my mind
Has left a hole, a hole where there shouldn't be
Got to relax and unwind

I know it can be hard
To open up your heart
As the callous softens the skin begins to breath
I know it can be hard
To open up your heart
If you never try you never will believe

Distance is hard
Though i never felt the pain
My mind is still there with you

It seems to me
Lying alone in this bed beside the sea
Four pillows and space enough for two
Has taught me lessons I didn't know I need
This space here is set aside for you

I know it can be hard
To open up your heart
As the callous softens the skin begins to breath
I know it can be hard
To open up your heart
If you never try you never will believe
Track Name: Someone
[Verse]
I can see that you need help
someone that believes in you
someone to open your eyes
and show you the good things too

I hope that you find love
someone that believes in you
someone who will not lie
and hold you close beneath the sky

[chorus]
you're not going to die any time soon
try to stay alive, things will improve
you're not going to die

[Verse]
I can see that you need help
someone that believes in you
someone to open your eyes
and show you the good things too

[chorus]
you're not going to die any time soon
try to stay alive, things will improve
you're not going to die

[bridge]
feeling the fall of an old oak tree oooh ooh ooh
falls at the feet of you and me
leaves all the past behind
leaves us to start a new life

[chorus]
you're not going to die any time soon
try to stay alive, things will improve
you're not going to die
Track Name: No Stutter
[Verse]
I retreat into my own
see the miles I have flown
to be here
with you

I loose my sense of me
but keep the man you see
to be here
with you

[Chorus]
I changed the man I was
all the parts I lost
the effect and the cause
no stutter no pause
to be here
with you


[Verse]
I removed my self
put my heart on the shelf
when the winds have turned
I will heal your burns

I kept the part of me
to be here as you see
all the things to believe
the reflections in the sea


[Chorus]
I changed the man I was
all the parts I lost
the effect and the cause
no stutter no pause
to be there
for you
to be there for you
to be there


[Chorus]
I changed the man I was
all the parts I lost
the effect and the cause
no stutter no pause
to be there for you
to be there for you
to be there for you
