Todd Bowlsby Discovered the wonder of Christopher Worth (Worth) this weekend at the Portland Blues Festival. He was by far and away THE BEST artist there - and this amongst several renowned blues artists! Purchased his album immediately and have been loving it ever since! My wife classifies us as Super Fans! Keep up the great work, Chris! Can't wait for the new album to hit soon! Favorite track: One Woman.

Track Name: Amber
Under the pale moon
Amidst the dark gloom
Of the forest
That I walked through
I came to
A clearing
Saw her dancing by the fire
I looked on
From the darkness
At the bold form
Of a goddess
A spark flew
And she knew
That she was not alone

Her skin was like amber
In that pale moonlight
Her hair was like amber
Running through my mind
Flowing like amber
I could not deny
She was like amber

I approached her
As if I’d known her
In a past life
Somewhere older
We circled
Round the fire
Till our gaze met in the flames

Her skin was like amber
In that pale moonlight
Her hair was like amber
Running through my mind
Flowing like amber
I could not deny
She was like amber

As the daylight
Shed the night
And I woke by
The fire side
The ashes
Blew in the wind
And she was gone

Her skin was like amber
In that pale moonlight
Her hair was like amber
Running through my mind
Flowing like amber
I could not deny
She was like amber
Track Name: Fire
Did you feel the fire
When I came your way
Was it my desire
Written on your face
Woman I’m a writer
And I can’t explain
I’m feeling kind of lighter
When you call my name

It’s burning down, down in me

Did you feel the fire in me?

Did you feel the fire
When I walked on by
Was it my desire
To turn your eye
I could take you higher
Warm you by the fire
Till you were mine

It’s burning down, down in me

Did you feel the fire in me?

Baby let’s just stop playing games
I want you and I know you want me
Just the same
We could stoke this fire into
A raging blaze
Burning up
Amidst an ancient flame

Did you feel the fire in me?
Track Name: The Sun and The Moon
When I first saw you
I was blown away
It was the face of a cherub
I touched the sky
When I looked into your eyes
I’ve never had an experience like that before
And I don’t expect to again

The last thing I expected was to feel this way
And be writing love songs again
You are a special monster
It feels so good to be understood by you
And loved by you
You made me feel like I could be
Everything I ever thought I was
Every part of me wants you
And I could do that for you
And
And
Even though I’m scared
You could do it for me
Shitless
And we could feel complete together
I love you
And I may never see you again
And I can’t wait till I see you again
But I think I’m in love with you
Bye handsome


I just want you to know
That wherever you are
And wherever I am
You have a piece of me
With you all the time
In the sun and the moon
Everywhere
Track Name: Ain't No Better Way
Room for two
Just me and you
I’ve been waiting
For this moment
For a while now girl
Throw our clothes
Across the floor
No more holding back
No more wanting more

Touching skin to skin
I feel you breathing in
My ear now girl

Toss me down
On the cold, hard ground
It’s a battle
But nobody’s gonna lose now

There ain’t no better way
To say I love you
Than a bite mark
Or a petite bruise

Bite you on your arm
But I will not do no harm
With this pain now girl
If pleasure is the game
There’s no sense in being sane
We could let it all lose baby

There ain’t no better way
To say I love you
Than a kiss on both your lips

Hold me back
Show me on the map
To your body baby
Direct me with a slap
Lick your lips
As my fingertips
Trace crop circles
Across your curves

There ain’t no better way
To say I love you
Track Name: WeeW
WeeW
Track Name: One Woman
I used to go out
Looking for love
In all the wrong places
In the bars and the clubs
Counting on my luck
But lost
In too many girls
Trying to find a balance
Within my world
Searching for a pearl
Who knows

What I found out is
I only need one woman
Who can love me
Like the rest of them can

I used to stay out late
Out on a date
Trying to get laid
It was such a mistake
Wasting all my precious energy
I was lost
In the ways of the world
Searching for a woman
But ending up with girls

What I found out is
I only need one woman
Who can love me
Like the rest of them can
I only need one woman
She’s a goddess
And I’m a man who understands

The wisdom of her ways
Makes me want to turn the page
On our love
On the book of our love
The smile that’s on her face
Fills me up with grace
I’ve been dreaming of

I only need one...

I only need one woman
Who can love me
Like the rest of them can
I only need one woman
She’s a goddess
And I’m a man who understands

I been reading up on it girl
I read all these new textbooks on this
And I say your happier with one person
When you just stay all day
And you just gonna make it good
It’s like a good cup of coffee in the morning
And it gonna make you feel
Oh I’m horny
Track Name: Twin Flames
I just wanted to let you know
That I love you so much
To say that you are everything
Is cliche
That you have changed my life
What other word describes the infinite levels of love?
That I’ve learned what it is
To be a human being
Because of you
We hold each other to the fire
And for that I will love you forever
And with that comes this knowledge
There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you
My spirit’s deepest belief that
There’s no road I wouldn’t walk for you
With you by my side
I can soar to my soul’s greatest heights
Because we’re twin flames
And we’re meant to journey together
Track Name: Love of My Life
I could be with you forever and the after
I can see us growing old together
I can almost hear the laughter
When the story’s told
I can think of no worse disaster
Than to lose you from in my life
But I could never play your master
Unless you like

You’re the love of my life

I haven’t missed someone so much in awhile
And all my feeling’s have become so clear now
I’m daydreaming of you every evening
And in the morning time
When I rise

You’re the love of my life

I could never live without you baby
I tell the whole world that I’d be your slave
Baby, over my dead body
I could sail on

You’re the love of my life

(poem in Russian / translated below)

I have recently discovered
That I have a large family
That deep gaze of yours
Your laughter
Closeness
Dancing amidst everyone
And all around me
Your voice
Caressing
Embracing
Melting
Oh how quickly we’ve become friends
Track Name: Vows
I say this to you in regards to love
My love for you is patient
My love for you is enduring
Through the thick and the thin
I will stand by the fire with you
Through all trials and tribulations
That are presented to us
I believe that this love that you and I share
Needs to allocate more room
When there are challenges
And times that are coming to the surface
That are only meant to sharpen our character
My love needs to be more patient
Through those times
To give you the space and the room
That you need to grow
I love you so much
That I am willing to sacrifice
Whatever it is for myself
And make you a better person
And there and for in turn
Make us better people
I love you
I say this from my heart
Bless you
Track Name: Mrs. Rosie
Mrs. Rosie
Don’t you know I love thee
I need you to smile
‘Cause I was born to make you happy
And I don’t want to see you cry
The truth in your eye
That I have hurt you babe

Mrs. Rosie
I know you love me
The feeling’s returned
Reciprocated
It ain’t related to fear
So listen here
Listen Mrs. Rosie
Don’t you know I love thee
And I know thee deeply
And profoundly

Mrs. Rosie
How I love the look on your face
When I tell you chill out
I ain’t puttin’ you down
Just holding my ground
Ain’t being stubborn
I got no time for that shit
This love is legit
And I’m gonna be real with it

Mrs. Rose pedal flame
Like a flower in the rain
Mrs. you’re my dame
I could give you my name
But still I’d feel the same
How I love thee Mrs. Rosie

What’s the sassafrass in your ass babe
Why you got to be so rude?
Did you get abused in a past life?
Is our relationship right or wrong?
I sing you this song, play along
It’s so simple baby

I fucking hate that I love you
But I always fucking will
Track Name: Jackie Girl
Jackie girl is leaving
And that’s a matter of fact
She always got the wind
At her back
On a one way train
That don’t turn around and stay
If ever she needs you
She says that she’ll
Call you on up on the phone

Jackie girl is leaving
Headed out on her own
She said she needs some time
All alone
With no one by her side
And nowhere left to hide
Stopping and going
Wherever she pleases
Till she feels alive

Jackie Girl is leaving
And I know she ain’t lying

Jackie Girl is leaving
She’s done packing her bags
I heard she made a run
On your bank
Took all of the cash
You should have spent
On her sweet ass
Emptied your buckets
‘Cause fuck it
It’s time she took her chunk of change

Jackie Girl is leaving
Headed out on the range
She said she found it hard
To maintain
A relationship with you
When you do the things you do
The life of the music don’t mix with
The old fashioned ways of the paint

Jackie Girl is leaving
And it is what it ain’t

Oh how the river changed her mind
Oh you may reconnect in time

Jackie Girl is leaving
And she don’t care how it ends
I heard she even fucked your best friend
Said that he was using her
Now the truth is just a blur
I can’t tell who’s lying
Or trying to cover the scent of the sin

Jackie Girl is leaving
Still playing her games
Smiling in the face of her shame
While she’s running from the sight
Of her shadow close behind
Soon there’ll be nothing else left
But accepting the pain of you name

Jackie Girl is leaving
And she ain’t coming back

Oh how the river changed her mind
Oh you may reconnect in time

She’s leaving out the back door
Track Name: Best Of Luck
I’ve made a lot of mistakes with you
I pushed you away

I don’t feel like we get the chance
To actually express what the fuck is going on
To each other and shit
But I feel like I got to get it out
I got to say it, you know

We had our problems but I gave up
I left
It was like I couldn’t see through the fog
And that terrified me

I got nothing but love for you
But it’s done
The book’s got to close
Otherwise both of us can’t do
What it is we need to do individually within our lives
It is what it is man
Nothing but love and best of luck on what you do
It would be best if I leave you alone
And you do the same

But how I forgive myself if you never will?

It’s unfortunate
I like knowing who you are
But...

But I can’t play that game
And be a solid dude

I gave you the best I had
I hope that means something
Good luck

I love you
Track Name: Let's Make It Last
As I called you my first
I will call you my last
You’re the only one
I could never move past
The woman I love as no one else can
No one else can

Let’s make it last
Until the end

If our fire dies
Let us kindle it back
We’ll live in the present
And let go the past
And build up our love
Inside of romance
Let’s make it last

Let’s make it last
Until the end

You’re my lady...

As I called you my first
I will call you my last
You’re the only one
I could never move past
The woman I love as no one else can
No one else can

Let’s make it last
Until the end
Let’s make it last
Track Name: The Perfect Little Imperfections
It makes me nervous just thinking about you
I’ve been able to process all the memories
They’ve turned into lessons and
I feel like my body still remembers you
I still know exactly what you’re arms feel like around me
I know exactly where my head sits
When I rest it against your chest
I remember the perfect little imperfections
Your front tooth, how it’s kicked in
That smile just killed me

You’re still my idea
Of the perfect person to be in love with

Passion
and life
And fire
and sex
and love
To stoke that flame into the current day

I’ve heard the rumors that love is kind, gentle, simple
My love is not
My true love is passionate, fiery, powerful

Very powerful
Our love

You might not have been the best boyfriend
But you are a good man

You’re also the most beautiful woman
I’ve ever met in my entire life

I don’t know if you are the love of my life
But you have been my greatest love so far
And that gives me hope
For future things to come
Track Name: Nothing New
After all the sinning is done
There’s still time to come around
After all you’ve been on the run
There’s still time to settle down
And that’s nothing new

I don’t want you
To be nothing new for me
You don’t have to
Prove that your’e a lady
‘Cause I always new

After all the separation
Has left us out on our own
After all these hesitations
Have given us time to grow
But we’re nothing new

I don’t want you
To be nothing new for me
You don’t have to
Prove that your’e a lady
‘Cause I always new

It’s nothing new

It’s the way that you say
To grow up every day
But you never take your own advice
Nothing new about you
Could ever make me refuse
To think about you all the time
And that’s nothing new darling

I don’t want you
To be nothing new for me
You don’t have to
Prove that your’e a lady
‘Cause I always new

It’s nothing new


In all of this chaos and rush and bustle
Of our everyday lives
I am continuously reminded
That you are my core and my center
And I’ve lived a thousand lifetimes to find you
Track Name: Lucky Me
It’s growing on me again
I try to get it off
But it’s under my skin
Fear is not a factor
As we turn another chapter
In the story

It’s growing in me again
I try to get it on
But it feels like a sin
Love is not the answer
As I’m trying hard
To ask her to help
Herself

We’re falling faster
We’re going nowhere
And everybody knows it
That life is unfair
But me, oh but me
Falling faster, growing closer
No one ever took the time
To get to know her
But me, oh but me

Lucky me

It’s running through me again
I try to hold it back
But it keeps creeping in
I’ve searched for greener pastures
But I only found them
In her laughter

As we’re falling faster
We’re going nowhere
And everybody knows it
That life is unfair
But me, oh but me
Falling faster, growing closer
No one ever took the time
To get to know her
But me, oh but me

Lucky me...

I spy a smile on your face
Hold it inside
You’re winning the race
To denial
I spy a blemish on me
I try to kill it off
‘Cause it’s just a disease
Denial

Falling faster, going nowhere
And everybody knows it
That life is unfair
But me, oh but me
Falling faster, growing closer
No one ever took the time
To get to know her
But me, oh but me

Lucky me...
It’s oh so good to know her...
Track Name: Holy
You are my sun and my moon

I find it so hard to say these words
Because they terrify me

You dictate my understanding of time

This last year has been absolutely amazing
And I love you so much

Time with you is infinite

And the thought of saying goodbye to you kills me

Without you feels permanent

Because you have helped me so much

I long for your kiss

I love you in a way that I never knew was ever humanly possible

Every crease in your body fitting mine

You’ve shown me things about myself
That make me want to be a better person
On a regular basis

And I miss you
And I love

No matter the distance that lies between us
It’s my goal to constantly travel that distance
To get wherever you are
No matter how long it takes
I love you in the deepest way
And I couldn’t possibly begin to ever prove it to you

And I wish any mistake

You know, I’m really sorry for

That I made to hurt you
Could be undone

Everything that we’ve been through
You know, it’s been a lot

And if words weren’t so fucking fleeting

As rough as it’s been

And I depict my way of

I’ve grown

Trying to let you know that I love you
So much better
But this is what I have

Because of you

And I don’t know anything
Other than I love you

And I’m really thankful
For the lessons that you’ve taught me
Track Name: Two
Two parts, two hearts in one
Two kinds too but through and through
You’re one, one love
Two hands to find a way to land
Build our castle in the sand
We can make it stand

Our love is so simple

Two minds, two paradigms
Two lives come together for a time
Stars are aligned
Two fires to burn like funeral pyres
Light the darkness as it grows
Cold, ever so slow

Our love is so simple

We are one love

Two maps, two paths to guide us
Trust what was written long ago
We know one love

Our love is so simple

We are one love


I’m sorry I couldn’t let you grow
What hurts the most
Is the truth is you had to go
And all of this had to happen
Track Name: Level
When I found you
You were in a bad place
And I wanted to help you
By the time I was able
To be at the same level you were
You saw me below you
And you put me down

I remember the days
When you said you would get me
Any way you could have me
And you could have had me
At the same level
But that’s not where you wanted me
Track Name: Always
It has been three years
And I still struggle not to think about you
I always thought that we would depend on each other
And grow old and be friends
And even if we weren’t together
See each other as little, old, grouchy people
Buying books and gardening
But it doesn’t seem like it’s gonna be
I hope you’re doing well
And I forgive you
I held a lot of resentment for a long time
But I’m growing
And I hope you’re growing
I love you and I will always love you
Track Name: Return
What if I told you
That I still loved you
What good would that do
My friend
When these patterns unfold true
And I cannot trust you
The way that I want to
Ever again

I thought I knew you
The moment I met you
Your spirit just rang true
With mine
A smile and a wink that
Shot me in the back
Took all that I had
And ran

That’s why I want you to
Return my faded words
I need them for myself

My heart is broken
‘Cause it remains open
A wound as a token
Of your love
And I cannot heal it
Accept it or feel it
Until I can speak it
To you

You took a part of me
I can’t replace
I see it now and then
But only in your face

That’s why I want you to
Return my faded words
I need them for myself

What if I told you
That I moved on
Would you be alarmed
And run for my arms again
What if I fall in love again
With somebody new
Someone who’ll always be there
Would you even care

Return my faded words
I need them for myself

I want you to know...


I know it’s been a long time since we talked
But I just want to let you know that I’m ok
I moved to Portland
And found a family of amazing souls
That I’m proud to call my friends
I will always love you
And I’m sorry
I’m so sorry we didn’t make it
But I’m better now
I’m so much more
God I wish you could see me now
Track Name: Afterword
You’ve reached the WORTH music collaboration hotline
If you’re calling this number

Something deeply personal, something secret
Directed at a current, past or future lover
