Impossible To Hold

(Christina Martin)

Tonight you hold everything
You can have every heart
I’m basing this on years of watching you
From a chandelier you can barely hear
I’m breathing out your name in neon lights

What I’m lacking in daylight
I gain in dreams of you and me
We never touch
Impossible to hold
I don’t miss much

Tonight you’ve brought everyone
To a central park
To hear you sing about love lost and gained
And with you so near everyone can hear
Your love has touched millions of us

What I’m lacking in daylight
I gain in dreams of you and me
We never touch
Impossible to hold
I don’t miss much

I don’t want to go from watching you now
I don’t have to know all your secrets tonight
But I want to love the way you have loved

Tonight you hold everything
You can have every heart
I’m basing this on years of watching you
From a chandelier you can barely hear
I’m breathing out your name in neon lights

What I’m lacking in daylight
I gain in dreams of you and me
We never touch
Impossible to hold
I don’t miss much
I don’t miss much
You’re impossible to hold
I don’t miss much

Always Reminding

(Christina Martin/Dale Murray)

Didn’t think we’d make it
I didn’t think you’d stay
In the darkest moment
Promised me you’d never walk away

I didn’t think we could take it
Who sentenced you to me?
Afraid to swim dark water
You carried me to your sea

Always reminding
Always reminding me

I didn’t think we’d make it
I didn’t think you’d stay
In the darkest moment
Promised me you’d never walk away

Always reminding, always reminding
Always reminding, always reminding me
Oh oh oh I had hope
Oh oh oh now I have love

Always reminding, always reminding
Always reminding, always reminding
Always reminding, always reminding
Always reminding, always reminding me

I didn’t think we’d make it
I didn’t think you’d stay
In my darkest moment
Promised me you’d never walk away

Always reminding, always reminding
Always reminding, always reminding
Always reminding, always reminding
Always reminding, always reminding me

Oh oh oh I had hope
Always reminding, always reminding me
Oh oh oh now I have love
Always reminding, always reminding me
Oh oh oh I had hope
Always reminding, always reminding me
Oh oh oh now I have love
Always reminding, always reminding me

Deep Dark Red

(Christina Martin)

Deep dark red
I don’t want to find you
Dead in bed where I lay
Cold nights surrounded by a thread, by dread
You don’t want to lay with me while I cry about it
No one wants to hear about it

Makes no sense to me
Why we don’t we leave for another country
It makes no sense to me
Why you don’t
You don’t want to hear about it

Deep dark red

Home no more
Stars are reminders of a timeless dress
Can’t catch the wartime lovers
There she goes
Dancing away from a war filled with hope and dread
Do you want to hear about her

Makes no sense to me
Why we don’t leave for another country
It makes no sense to me
Why you don’t
You don’t want to hear about it

Deep dark red
Deep dark red

Times are strange
A stranger will save me while I lay here dead
Let’s trade our guns in a mood for love
Stranger
Keep us together
Keep us sane and loved
Make me feel enough

Makes no sense to me
Why we don’t leave for another country
It makes no sense to me
Why you don’t
You don’t want to hear about it
But I’m gonna sing about it

Dancing away from a war filled with hope
Take me away from a war filled with hope
Make me feel, make me feel
Something, something
Take me away and make me feel
Stranger, stranger
Let’s trade our guns in a mood for love
Stranger, stranger

Keep Me Calm

(Christina Martin)

Baby keep me calm tonight
I can’t believe things turn so fast
Baby keep me calm until I
Find my way to a pretty truce

This gets harder
With every pulse, my heart breaks
We get stronger
The taste of sweet joy when we hit the stage
Until then baby keep me calm

Baby sing our song tonight
Help me remember why I still fight
Baby pressures on, I carry
All the worries, I want to let it go

And when I do
Will I fly, the way you do
I’ll fly with you
We’ll keep moving the way we do
When I fall, baby keep me calm

Baby keep me calm
I could use your strength
Baby you’re so strong
Will you keep me calm

And this gets harder
With every pulse, my heart breaks
And we grow stronger
The taste of sweet joy when we hit the stage

Until then, baby keep me calm
Until then, baby keep me calm
Until then, baby keep me calm

Foreign

(Christina Martin)

I can’t. Not yet. Not now.
Just give me time to go away
I know
I’ll come right back and stay
With you, for you
I’m only here to love
No one can say
No one can ease my pain

Until I have something to feel
Until I have something to give
Your mouth. My hands.
My work. My blood.

Until I have something to feel
Until I have something to give
To you, my heart
Our lives will stop

It’s weird, I feel like gold
Foreign to my own skin
And bones, I’m floating
Here with you in bed
Our boat. Capsule. I know
I’ll sail away with you
To nowhere else
We’re home

Until I have something to feel
Until I have something to give
Your mouth. My hands.
My work. My blood.

Until I have something to feel
Until I have something to give
To you, my heart
Our lives will stop

I have somewhere to go
Not far and not for long
Goodbye for now
I’ll be back to this town

Until I have something to feel
Until I have something to give
Your mouth. My hands.
My work. My blood.

Until I have something to feel
Until I have something to give
To you, my heart
Our lives will stop

Until I have something to feel
Until I have something to give
Your mouth. My hands.
My work. My blood.

Until I have something to feel
Until I have something to give
To you, my heart
Our lives will stop

Winter

(Christina Martin)

As you saw
I couldn’t help it
All night long
I chose to fight it

Oh, I’d never stay
Just to eat cake
All of it all of it all of it all of it

Oh, you don’t know me
Like you thought so

Days like nights
I did surrender
Don’t turn on the light
I long for winter

Oh, take me away
While I can feel
All of you all of you all of you all of you

Oh, you don’t know me
Like you thought so

Oh, take this away
My need to dream
Or love you or love you or love you or love you
Oh, when can we break?
Just to eat cake
All of it all of it all of it all of it

Oh, you don’t know me
Like you thought so, like you thought so
Oh, you don’t know me
Like you thought so

Lungs Are Burning

(Christina Martin/Dale Murray)

Do you want to stay private and kill
While I’m watching the babies
And it’s getting real dark down the hill
Got to go out and get
Got to get up on something
Got to go out and get some, baby, our

Lungs are burning, hearts are yearning
And we’re reaching to fill ourselves
Lungs are burning, hearts are yearning
And we’re reaching to fill ourselves

Babe we got so hooked on the thrill
We were shining like silver
We were chasing a dream and a pill
Got to go out and get
Got to get up on something
Got to go out and get some, baby, our

Lungs are burning, hearts are yearning
And we’re reaching to fill ourselves
Lungs are burning, hearts are yearning
And we’re reaching to fill ourselves

Reaching, reaching

Lungs are burning, hearts are yearning
And we’re reaching to fill ourselves
Lungs are burning, hearts are yearning
And we’re reaching to fill ourselves
Lungs are burning, hearts are yearning
And we’re reaching to fill ourselves
Lungs are burning, hearts are yearning
And we’re reaching, reaching, reaching, reaching

Lungs are burning, hearts are yearning
And we’re reaching to fill ourselves
Lungs are burning, hearts are yearning
And we’re reaching to fill ourselves

Noise and Toys

(Christina Martin)

Somewhere down below
I know you’re a part
Mostly when I’m breathing
In and out
Why you always leaving
And running from your dreams
All the things that scare you
Keep you company

Would it kill you to let go for tonight
I watch your hands shake
Not to know how this might end
The voices talking to you
They will fight to keep you running
Would it kill you to let go

We go underneath
Below busy streets
I imagine breathing
And simple treats
Something so sublime
Hard to put in words
Underneath the street cars
There is time for love

Would it kill you to let go for tonight
I watch your hands shake
Not to know how this might end
The voices talking to you
They will fight to keep you running
Would it kill you to let go

Behind noise and toys
We’re running from our dreams
The things that scare this city
Keep us company

Where The Dark Meets The Light

When you’re scared of the darkness
Let it hold you
Wrap its arms around
And show you the light
Take a walk in a cold dark field
Bring your sword and shield
Make a fire in the darkest part
Let it burn

Tonight, where the dark meets the light
Tonight, where we walk, lightning strikes
Tonight, there’s a full moon throwing light
On our lives, make love, we can end this war
Tonight, where the dark meets the light

As we roll through this strange, strange world
Feeling like lost boys and girls
Runaways, howling at the night
Taking Turns

Tonight, where the dark meets the light
Tonight, where we walk, lightning strikes
Tonight, there’s a full moon throwing light
On our lives, make love, we can end this war
Tonight, where the dark meets the light

Where the dark meets the light

When you can’t see the night for the darkness
And you are standing, still as time
Turn toward the light in the distance and ride

Tonight, where the dark meets the light
Tonight, where we walk, lightning strikes
Tonight, there’s a full moon throwing light
On our lives, make love, we can end this war
Tonight, where the dark meets the light

Where the dark meets the light

Tonight, there’s a full moon throwing light
On our lives, make love, we can end this war
Tonight, where the dark meets the light

Lay You Down

(Christina Martin)

I know you have to go
But I don’t want to say goodbye

I never planned
To turn around and leave
Took a lot to lay you down

As I walked
I heard you breathe
A sigh of relief
You were gone to meet destiny
Now where I stand
Silence all around
Nothing but colours on a painting

I know you have to go
But I don’t want to say goodbye

As I turn, remember this
How you were good for me
In times of need
Truth be told
Our time was brief
But it meant more than this pain hurts

I know you have to go
I don’t want to say goodbye
About Album

On Impossible To Hold, her sixth studio album out March 23, Christina continues her significant evolution as one of Canada’s top exporting artists, with a matchless quality that has further developed lyrically, emotionally and sonically since her 2016 award winning album It’ll Be Alright. Christina explains “There was little concern for following any style or trend in writing and recording these new songs. My commitment was to honour the direction the songs were leading me in. There were dark moments in the process, but I showed up each day to work, and hoped it would all come together.”
