about

During years of work as an established dance producer and DJ, Christopher Norman slowly developed his other talents as a performer and a songwriter and incorporating them into his productions. 'EP1' is the result, a delightfully original and soulful slice of electronic pop. 'EP1' along with its three companions to follow later this year are primed to establish Christopher as one of music's freshest new voices.

Track Name: Wanting
talking but no one is saying anything
wishing my words to come out differently
study the patterns to pass the time

you don't know what to do with me
deliberating patiently, but you're lost
I could show you something true
I know I can't have you

but I want to, want to (x2)
waiting for the day you dance in my way
eyes in my direction
but to you I could be anyone else

pushing me back into a life forgotten
packing up fantasies back where I started
looking around it's so different here

listen softly to the whisper of a call
can you feel me reaching in and tugging at your heart?
i'll be your fortress, i'll be your home

you don't know what you to do me
you're ripping out my heart you see
I'm lost and I don't know what to do
because I know I can't have you

but I want to / want to (x2)
you know I did my part and gave you my heart
when will you see
to you I could be anyone else

listen softly to the whisper of a call
can you feel me reaching in and tugging at your heart?

want to (x4)
I try to go slow but I want more
I'm so enamored with you
but to you I could be anyone else
Track Name: Can't Let Go
look at the walls in here
it's bleak / the ceiling's clear
but I can't break through
I need a breakthrough
the ceiling is clear but I can't break through

can't let go (x2)

look how you find me here
same place another year flies by
nothing comes of me
I need to break free
I guess we'll see what becomes of me
when I break free

can't let go (x4)

look out the window, dear
it's late / the sun will soon be here any minute now
the door might close
any minute now the door might close
and we'll never know

can't let go (x4)
Track Name: Compulsion
charm's in limited supply
and refusing to stretch
that indefinable nothing
somehow keeps pushing you

finding the right words
can be a problem
how many times must it be said?
there's no plan, it had to happen

got to move on sometime
and it's about time
by putting one foot in front of another
and repeating the process
cross over the street
you're free to change your mind
strength through diversity
couldn't have put it more plainly

got to move on sometime (x4)

charm's in limited supply
under threat of extinction
that indefinable nothing
somehow motivates you

finding the right words
can be a problem
how many times must it be said?
there's no plan, it had to happen

got to move on sometime
and it's about time
by putting one foot in front of another
and repeating the process
cross over the street
you're free to change your mind
strength through diversity
couldn't have put it more plainly

got to move on sometime (x4)
Track Name: Give It All Away (Live Acoustic)
let it go / let it be
is what i tell myself
in situations like these
even though i'm screaming on the inside out

it'd sure be nice
to feel at home again
wouldn't it be something
to feel normal again?

[Chorus]
don't you want to give it all away?
sometimes I do
even though I should
want to be here with you

you think I'm scared
well maybe that's true
I'm just left here wondering
how I fit in with you

and I'm trying to be
the one you see in me
but I always think too much
instead of being free / flying free

[Chorus]

walking in my own shadow
stretching beyond my means
I can't live like this another day
need to stand back and let the chips fall
as they may

[Chorus] x2
