Tonight 03:28
Tonight is on my mind Tonight is on my mind Don't you say Midnight melodies in the air This universal feeling we all share Bright lights and the city air My little black dress and messy hair I'm a deadbeat you should know by now Tonight is on my mind Tonight is on my mind Tonight is on my mind Tonight is on my mind Don't you say goodnight Moonlight glistens through the trees I complain it's too cold for me Ironic sense of tranquility Listening to your heart beat It's 3 AM and my mind is gone It's getting late I've been here too long I'm a deadbeat you should know by now I’m a deadbeat you should know by now Tonight is on my mind Tonight is on my mind Tonight is on my mind Tonight is on my mind Don't you say goodnight Don’t you say goodnight

Let It Rain 03:10
You left me crying Lying on the floor You had me asking Do you love me anymore The thunders roaring Here comes the storm I wasn’t anticipating For you to walk out that door Ooo baby Are you really leaving me All this pain I feel inside It hurts me more than a dagger knife I’ve never felt this way before Why don’t you love me anymore Let it rain let it rain on me I couldn’t breathe When you left me Your voice haunts me I can’t even sleep It’s never ending Can’t get you off my mind So I’m surrendering I think I lost this time Ooo baby Are you really leaving me All this pain I feel inside It hurts me more than a dagger knife I’ve never felt this way before Why don’t you love me anymore Let it rain let it rain on me

I won't give it up Without a fight I give you my heart And I'll start the car Driving away With my headlights off Can't seen in this daze I think I've cried enough I I've been thinking about You you got me thinking So I'm backtracking in my head I gotta get back am I dead Smokestacking in my head In a beautiful daze Living under this haze I think I like it this way Maybe I won't change I'm taking my time To get in my right mind So I lay in my bed With clouds in my head I've got nothing to lose And nothing to save So I keep blaming you I do this to myself I know what you want I know what you need I can't give it you I can't compete I I've been thinking about You you got me thinking So I'm backtracking in my head I gotta get back am I dead Smokestacking in my head In a beautiful daze Living under this haze I think I like it this way Maybe I won't change backtracking in my head I gotta get back am I dead Smokestacking in my head backtracking in my head I gotta get back am I dead Smokestacking in my head in a beautiful daze maybe I won’t change

Decency 03:29
More than a million words on my lips But I can't choose one Oh seasons change But this time it's different It's not just another goodbye I'm stuck it's so hard I can't find the decency I can't find the decency I'm stuck it's so hard I can't find the decency I can’t find the decency to tell you what you mean to me I am and alien to this world I weigh the difference I just don't fit in I'm not just another typical American girl I'm stuck it's so hard I can't find the decency I can't find the decency I'm stuck it's so hard I can't find the decency I can’t find the decency to tell you what you mean to me Tell me I'm worth it Tell me you missed this Tell me I'm beautiful And that it's not my fault That you left this Ohh dance with me Just one more time With our bare feet In the kitchen light

When will this all end I’m watching the second hand Counting until I’m spent The delusion in my head Is always 10 steps ahead Waiting until I realize I’ve been dead Waiting for the gun to fire Telling me that it’s all over Cuz I didn’t run for cover My life’s such a sad satire So laugh at me laugh at me please I dare you When will this all end I want the end I want the end Are you tired of me yet And all the selfish things I’ve said And how I’m always stuck in my head Cuz I’m tired of myself I said I’d work on my mental health But here I am again putting it on the shelf I’m so tired of being tired I said I’m ok but I’m a liar Such a compulsive liar My life’s such a sad satire So laugh at me laugh at me please I dare you When will this all end I want the end I want the end When will this all end I want the end I want the end I’m so tired of being tired I said I’m ok but I’m a liar Such a compulsive liar My life’s such a sad satire So laugh at me laugh at me please I dare you

Love isn’t easy But it doesn’t have to be so hard I know my feelings I knew you were the one from the start I didn’t know I’d be so in love so young Everybody talks They say she’s too young to know What she wants Oh oh I know I know what I want Oh oh I know I’ll love you forever I know I sound crazy I’m not even old enough to drink But love isn’t picky It’s not just an overage disease They say things will change And the honeymoon stage isn’t long But I know someday You and I will say they were wrong Oh oh I know I know what I want Oh oh I know I’ll love you forever Oh oh I know I know what I want Oh oh I know I’ll love you forever and it brings me to tears When I look in your eyes I’m in love In 50 years we’ll look back on our lives And we’ll say we did it right Ohh and I’ll love you forever

about

Austin, Texas native Christine Renner is carving a niche for herself on the indie rock landscape, with a sound that combines the storytelling sensibility of folk with the raw energy of 90s alternative rock, touched with a gloss coat of ethereal ambiance.

You’ll hear all of these ideas come into play – and play well together – on her EP, "Tonight."

The sonic landscape of "Tonight" is craftily woven together from the beginning. It all starts with the pensive title track, which features Renner contemplating strange, new romantic feelings over an atmospheric folk soundscape. Things still feel a bit spacy on ensuing track “Let It Rain.” This time, though, the new wave vibes work in tandem with an alt-rock bite that calls the angst of bands like Garbage and The Smashing Pumpkins to mind, and whose sting only gets heavier on the radio-ready “Beautiful Daze.”

For all of its punchiness, Tonight features no shortage of highly vulnerable moments. One special example is “When Will This All End,” a stark, searching ballad full of self-blame and melancholy. Renner pleads for mercy from the pain in her mind in heartbreaking fashion, calling attention to the wars we often wage with ourselves."
