Christopher Vincent Powerfully honest and unashamedly thought provoking, the lyrics within are truly wholesome & pure. A beautiful rhythmic undertone transports you gently throughout always enticing to an anticipated yet somewhat inquisitive climax that is both revealing yet strangely nurturing. I do believe we can all relate to the lyrical wonders this song quietly sings that will make you feel both at peace yet thankful. It is harmlessly intoxicating. Favorite track: Did You Hear?.

about

Parabola West Raglan, New Zealand

I write songs about my own life and about the lives of people who inspire me with their strength. I relate to others through our shared emotions, fears, and hiding places. I hope you enjoy listening to the music as much as I have enjoyed creating it, and if you find a piece of your story in here sing it with me. ... more

Track Name: If You Get It
What it is you want from me
I just can’t give
And the things that you believe
I just can’t live
When you say I feel like home
I don’t know how
I have lived my life alone and
I still am now
But if you get it, I want it too
And if you get it, I want it with you
If you get it I want it
Something’s got to get me off this ride
And something’s got to fill me up inside
And you don’t give up on me
I wish you were right
If what you’re saying is the truth
It might save my life
So we leave the world outside now
Just you and me
But you’ve got something on your side
That’s bigger than I can be
And if you get it, I want it too
If you get it, I want it with you
If you get it, I want it
Something’s got to get me off this ride
Something’s got to fill me up inside
Track Name: Run Away
Well I miss your face and I can’t erase this emptiness
Would you meet me where we said we would if it came to this?
‘Cause I gave my word and I swear that we’ll get through this
Yes I know I ran, but I’m back again – let’s do this
Baby I've got a plan, run away with me fast as you can
Like a train on a track, once we go there is no turning back
Knowing that we belong together, we will find our way
When it’s the truth it does not matter what they say
Knowing this love can’t be surrendered, we will find our way
When it is real it does not matter what they say
You’re the only one when I come undone who’s still holding on
And it won’t be long ‘till there’s nothing wrong, where we belong
Baby I've got a plan, run away with me fast as you can
Like a train on a track, once we go there is no turning back
Knowing that we belong together, we will find our way
When it’s the truth it does not matter what they say
Knowing this love can’t be surrendered, we will find our way
When it is real it does not matter what they say
Baby I've got a plan, run away with me fast as you can
Track Name: Not Enough to Love
So innocent and very small
You’re hardly up to there at all
And I’m here to take care of you
But there is so much else to do
I fear you’re growing up too fast
What’s happened in the time that’s passed?
You seem so old beyond your years
I guess all parents have these fears
It’s not enough to love, I must protect
It’s not enough to love, I must notice
‘Cause time goes by and it’s too late
My deep regrets won’t compensate
It’s not enough to love
Nowhere I could run, but thirty-two floors I could fall
And when I looked down at the cars below
It made me feel so small
And just like that – the speed of sound
It felt like I had hit the ground
I wish that I can talked to you
But there was so much else to do
It’s not enough to love, you must protect
It’s not enough to love, you must notice
‘Cause time goes by and it’s too late
Your deep regrets won’t compensate
It’s not enough to love
It’s not enough to love
Tell me why
You keep your secrets locked inside you and time goes by
Tell me why
You keep your secrets locked inside you and time goes by
Oooh time goes by
It’s not enough to love, we must protect
It’s not enough to love, we must notice
‘Cause time goes by and it’s too late
Our deep regrets won’t compensate
It’s not enough to love
Track Name: Time (I Need Grace)
Time is making a fool of me
Oh but I helped it, I helped it along
I’m tired of trying to free myself
What good is crying when you’re lying when it counts?
Lord, I need Grace to unfold and remember
The heart of a child when there’s no one looking over your shoulder
Shake off the doubt; it’s like concrete around my feet
And I need some help now to be strong
Time to move on, got nothing to hold me down
But I need to hold on, hold on to You now
Lord I need Grace to unfold and remember
The heart of a child when there’s no one looking over your shoulder
And there comes a point where it has to change
‘Cause too many times it’s turned out the same
The break in your heart for what life should be
And you know you’re running out of …. Time
It’s making a fool of me
Oh but I helped it, I helped it along
Lord, I need Grace to unfold and remember
The heart of a child when there’s no one looking over your shoulder
Lord I need Grace to unfold and remember
The heart of a child when there’s no one looking over your shoulder
Track Name: Did You Hear?
Tonight I thought only of you
When there were stars above my belly
And the night ate blue velvet from black forever
I felt something.
Did you?
Did you?
Or has it been too long, too long for you to take it all back?
Tonight I, I thought only only only of you
Even when the spider clung mid-air
And the shadows were breathing
I whispered your name in the darkness
Did you hear?
Did you hear?
Did you hear?
Did you hear?
Or has it been too long, too long for you to take it all back?
Or has it been too long, too long for you to take it all back?
Track Name: Quietly
Well we talked about the way our time was passing
It’s like we flipped a coin and lost life everlasting
And it’s a moment I do not care to repeat
That kind of sadness that just kicks you off your feet
And leaves you quietly
Well if I had another day what would I do?
I’d probably spend the hours arguing with you
I’d cut you down and I’d be crying at your feet
You’d have the kindness not to judge my self-defeat
But then you left me quietly
Quietly
Quietly
Quietly
If I allow myself to long for you to hold me
I need to hear all of the things you never told me
And there’s a comfort when the sadness keeps you near
But then I wake, and like a dream you've disappeared
You left me quietly
Quietly
Quietly
Quietly
