Maps (free) 06:00
Bruised and broken / my heart is young Still give my love away to anyone All exposed for you to see Breathing in, taking over me It's taking over me I don't know how or why or when Your voice keeps playing back in my head So many crossroads left to see Look at maps and think of me Just think of me When your life becomes a mess Change your tracks and head due west Is that how you want to be? Shallow, hip philosophy What a state I find you in All your highways crumbling So many detours to your heart You can run but you won't get too far I don't know how or why or when Your voice keeps playing back in my head So many crossroads left to see Look at maps and think of me Just think of me

The Fall 04:53
I'm worse for wear I'm barely there anymore It's never fair I'm never what they're looking for I give it all I take the fall every time You put up a wall / and begin to stall Fault's all mine I get a sinking feeling now in my chest Reverberating restlessness Don't you want to think I'd be better off? I'm dancing on a line you don't want to cross and falling off / I'm falling off Never win the game Days are all the same in and out Time is slipping by Patience running dry / so I walk Right back to the start With my beating heart in my hands Another helpless try / won't you tell me why? I don't understand Can't catch my breath / it's stupid Can't help myself / I'm useless On my own / all alone I get a sinking feeling now in my chest Reverberating restlessness Don't you want to think I'd be better off? I'm dancing on a line you don't want to cross and falling off oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh (x4) I get a sinking feeling now in my chest Reverberating restlessness Don't you want to think I'd be better off? I'm dancing on a line you don't want to cross and falling off / I'm falling off

Fever 03:39
I'm sick enough I'm burning up My face could set this place ablaze I've tried too much To control the rush My blood like fire running through my veins Why do I shiver? Why do I shake? Can't take the fever When will it break? I'm hot too the touch About to erupt Gripping at my throat / I can barely speak Your apathy It's killing me I never meant to break the mercury Why do I shiver? Why do I shake? Can't take the fever When will it break? I'm getting better I've found a cure Nevermind my rapid rise in temperature I shoulder sickness I feel the flame and I've a feeling you could be the one to blame I think you could be the one to save my suffering All you've got to do is crawl out from my skin If you'd like / but I'm still fixing to fight My mind is gone My timing's gone I've fought it off for way too long Why do I shiver? Why do I shake? Can't take the fever When will it break?

Empty stomach / open heart Wide acres / lonely thought Ready to consume me Empty bottle / open arms Wide embrace to keep emotional sobriety at bay Another wound grows me older War of love / I'm a soldier Running in the infantry Bombs and mortar fly around me Oh, I'm battling away Losing hope / losing faith All I want to do is find a home But baby I'm at war Oh my love is on the run Itchy finger on the gun My train is coming soon All I want to do is sing All I want to do is turn away Shed my shoes and run Another wound grows me older War of love / I'm a soldier Running in the infantry Bombs and mortar fly around me Oh, I'm battling away Losing hope / losing faith All I want to do is find a home But baby I'm at war

about

'EP2' is second in a series of electronic pop EPs from Christopher Norman. More introspective and personal than its predecessor, 'EP2' displays a transition to a more refined writing style with an increased focus on composition. With tracks like "The Fall," Christopher lets loose with his trademark bloopy, bouncy style while staying lyrically intimate. From the epic, swirling vocals in "Maps" to the slowly intensifying piano and strings in "Fever", these songs are crafted to stick in your head and tug at your heart.
