about

Maddie Leeper England, UK

I'm Maddie,18 from Brighton. I love my family, my cake and most of all my music! Life hasn’t been the easiest; I've had my share of hardships & was never able to truly express how I felt to others. So I channelled it through the songs you're listening to here. They represent my progression towards the person I am today. These compositions are my story. I can’t wait for you to take the journey! ... more

Track Name: Love Unrequited
I’ve said all the right things
But you’re feeling the wrong things
Every time my phone rings
Oh woah baby it’s never you
Oh woah, I’ve given you the right signs
But you’ve taken them the wrong way
What will another day bring
Oh woah, baby can’t it be you…

You, oh, oh can’t it be you
You, oh, oh can’t it be you

Love unrequited, never gonna see the light
Love unrequited, never gonna sleep the night.
Oh, woah, woah unrequited love, oh it hurts
Oh, woah, woah unrequited love.

I’ve sent out good vibrations
But you’ve only shown indifference
It’s been an education, oh.
I’m practically positive
Just one of us feels negative
Am I just and irritation, oh woah, woah, to you…

You, oh, oh can’t it be you
You, oh, oh can’t it be you

Love unrequited, never gonna see the light
Love unrequited, never gonna sleep the night
Oh, woah, woah unrequited
Love unrequited, never gonna see the light
Love unrequited, never gonna sleep the night
Oh, woah, woah unrequited love, oh it hurts
Oh, woah, woah unrequited love.
Track Name: Message To Self
One time, I was a messed up kid
A truly messed up kid
But broken dreams start to mend
With time, a life inhibited
A path prohibited
Like all things comes to and end
And I would say this to my younger self
Oh my younger self

Forget what other hard hearted people say
Those people don’t matter anyway
I know that it’s hard to hear now
But trust me it gets better everyday
You may not run with the coolest kids
But you’re beautiful and you’re talented
You don’t need nobody else
A message to your, message to yourself.

And now, I sense a brand new day
A beautiful new day with fresh dreams picked for my room
Reborn in every kind of way
On sunlight’s healing ray
As flowers of hope start to bloom
And all the doubting of my younger self
Sit upon the shelf.

Forget what other hard hearted people say
Those people don’t matter anyway
Where once it was hard to bear now
It’s changed it’s so much better everyday
So you don’t run with the coolest kids
Know you’re beautiful and you’re talented
You don’t need nobody else
A message to your, message to yourself.
Message to your, message to yourself.
Track Name: Those Monsters
I wanna be the person who was never there for me
When you need somebody, that person I will be
I’ll never let those monsters turn out your light
I’ll never let those monsters scare you at night.

Never give up hope, never give up faith
And I will give you a warm embrace
I will, I will, I will...

Always be the person who is always there for you
I never want nobody to feel what I went through.
I was never good enough for others in my school,
I was tortured, isolated, kids can be cruel.

Never give up hope in your darkest place,
When you’re feeling beaten and the bully’s in your face
I will shine a light, you will make it through
Music saved me, it can save you to.

I will,I will, I will...

Never give up hope, never give up faith
And I will give you a warm embrace

I will, I will, I will
Hold you still
Track Name: Short Straw
Stay with me, talk to me, cus I don’t know where I went wrong
Stay with me, talk to me, arms around to keep me strong
Lay with me; hold me tight, till all the night is gone
Just one last time, we’re not a crime; let me believe there’s nothing wrong

Cus there’s one short straw, and guess who picks it
One thing for sure, I gotta fix it
Cus I want you and I need you and I wish you could hear me
I will love you forever more

I wanna say just how I feel, but nothings coming out
And I need you to know just what it’s like, watching you leave unable to shout

Cus there’s one short straw, and guess who picks it
One thing for sure, I gotta fix it
Cus I want you and I need you and I wish you could hear me
I will love you forever more…short straw

Stay with me, talk to me, cus I don’t know where I went wrong
Just one last time, we’re not a crime; let me believe there’s nothing wrong
Stay with me, talk to me, cus I don’t know where I went wrong
Just one last time, we’re not a crime; let me believe there’s nothing wrong
Track Name: How I'll Stay
Let’s go, let’s hide, let’s run away. Let’s go where no one knows our names.
I want to see you when I open up me door, I want to stay with you forever more

But I’m scared of this life, scared of this love
Scared of what’s happening to me,
But I know I’ll be fine because in my mind you’re with me.

They don’t know who we are; they don’t know what they’re dealing with.
They can try to track us down, but baby we don’t catch easily.
Because I’ve got you, and you’ve got me and baby that’s all that I need boy
I’ve got you, and you’ve got me
And that’s how I’ll stay.

You’re facing me with that stare; I’m standing with my soul bare.
You’ve seen me like no one’s done before; I thought that at least you would know the score.
Now you’re walking away from me and as I watch, I see I start to bleed.
I’m lying here, on the floor; don’t think I can take this anymore.

Because I’m still scared of this life, still scared of this love
Still scared of what’s happening to me
And I don’t think I’ll be fine because in my mind, you’re not with me.

I don’t know, who I am, I don’t know what I’m dealing with.
They can try to track me down but baby now I catch easily.
Because I ain’t got you and you ain’t got me but baby there’s more that I need boy,
I ain’t got you and you ain’t got me
Don’t know what to say.

A year’s gone by and I am on my own, it never felt so good to be alone.
I can’t believe that I ever needed you look how good I’m doing without you.

And I’m not scared of this life, not scared of this love,
Not scared of what’s happening to me
And I know I’ll be fine because in real life, you’re not with me.

They don’t know who I am; they don’t know what they’re dealing with.
They can try to track me down,
But baby I don’t catch easily
Because I ain’t got you and you ain’t got me but baby that’s more than I need boy,
I ain’t got you and you ain’t got me
And that’s how I’ll stay.
Track Name: No Matter
You’re never on your own, everyone’s staring, everyone’s pointing, everyone knows your name
They wanna see you fall, cus everyone’s scared and everyone’s crazy,
they just wanna make you seem small

Now you’re ready, you’re gonna stand up tall,
they won’t bring you down.

No matter what they say, no matter what they do,
they’re never gonna get the best of you
No matter who they are, no matter what they see,
you’ve got to stand up and be who you want to be
Yeah, yeah and be who you want to be.

They want to bring you down, they wanna see you hurt,
they wanna see you broken, they wanna see you hit the ground
So don’t let them win, that’s exactly what they want,
don’t give them want they want, let them see you take the crown.

Now you’re ready, you’re gonna stand up tall,
they don’t bring you down.

No matter what they say, no matter what they do,
they’re never gonna get the best of you
No matter who they are, no matter what they see,
you’ve got to stand up and be who you want to be
Yeah, yeah and be who you want to be.

It’s your time to shine; it’s your time to fly across the open sky
They can’t touch you now, they can’t bring you down,
you are who you want to be
Yeah, yeah

No matter what they say, no matter what they do,
they’re never gonna get the best of you
No matter who they are, no matter what they see,
you’ve got to stand up and be who you want to be
No matter what they say, no matter what they do,
they’re never gonna get the best of you
No matter who they are, no matter what they see,
you’ve got to stand up and be who you want to be
Yeah, yeah you are who you want to be.
Track Name: Mojo
Kicking back memories, and wasting time
I’m finding new melodies, writing new lines
Sweep a new broom, sing a new song
Play a new tune called moving on

Finding my feet again, making up rhymes
I’m finding my mojo a note a time.
Sweep a new broom, sing a new song
Play a new tune called moving on

Nobody knows you like I do
But bringing back memories won’t conjure you
Unto my own self, I’ll be true
Moving on, moving on, moving on.

I looked in the mirror and guess what I see
My life’s so much clearer now I’m living for me
Forgetting my old life and starting anew
The time is now right to live without you

Nobody knows you like I do
But bringing back memories won’t conjure you
Unto my own self, I’ll be true
Moving on, moving on
Nobody knows you like I do
But bringing back memories won’t conjure you
Unto my own self, I’ll be true
Moving on, moving on, moving on.
Track Name: Lost & Found
Searching for something that I never lost
Searching for someone who I never was
But the sense of loss
Keeps yearning, burning as cold as frost
Wears me and bears me down like a heavy cross
A heavy cross

Oh but I keep searching for something that I never lost
And the memory weighs on me like an albatross
An albatross

Lost and found
Lost and found
Lost and found

Be tranquil, the monster is in the past
We will be here to sing you home at last
Home at last
Be peaceful, it’s all gone, be safe and sound
We will hold open arms and fold them round
The lost and found

Lost and found
Lost and found
Lost and found
Lost and found

We will hold open arms and fold them round
The lost and found
Track Name: Spellbound
I see you once and I am gone
Somewhere off the Richter scale
And I could fall for you headlong;
I’m like a sapling in a gale

A force so strong, my defences start to fail
I’m hanging on by a ragged fingernail

Spellbound I will never be the same
Tongue-tied, can’t even say my own name
Love-struck, like a moth drawn to a flame

To passers-by I’m acting strange
I’m standing still, you’re long since gone
20 times the lights have changed
Still you echo on and on

My mind is blown; my heart is stuck in jail
Your bird has flown; my love is in full sail

Spellbound I will never be the same
Tongue-tied, can’t even say my own name
Love-struck, like a moth drawn to a flame

Spellbound...
Spellbound...
Spellbound...

Spellbound I will never be the same
Tongue-tied, can’t even say my own name
Love-struck, like a moth drawn to a flame,
Like a moth drawn to a flame.
Track Name: Falling Apart
So far away from me is where you are
I’m on my own now that you’ve left me in the dark
And I can’t believe that I’ll never see you again
And I can’t believe that I’ve lost you my friend.

When I saw you lying there, I didn’t know who you were
You weren’t who I thought anymore, the whole idea seemed absurd
And ever since that fatal day, although I didn’t know it then
You’d changed forever, but now I know it was for the better.

Why, why did you have to go?
Why, why did you leave me here alone?
I’m falling apart,
You’ve broken my heart and there’s nothing left to say,
Why, why did you go away?

The morning we laid you down to rest in the earth
Is the morning I cried for you and everything that you were worth

Why, why did you have to go?
Why, why did you leave me here alone?
I’m falling apart,
You’ve broken my heart and there’s nothing left to say,
Why, why did you go away?

I’m so lost in the dark;
I’m so far apart from the world and what it meant to me
I’m all on my own, so scared and alone,
Won’t you come and help me please.

Why, why did you have to go?
Why, why did you leave me here alone?
I’m falling apart,
You’ve broken my heart and there’s nothing left to say,
Why, why did you go away?
I’m falling apart,
You’ve broken my heart and there’s nothing left to say,
Why, why did you go away?
I’m falling apart,
You’ve broken my heart and there’s nothing left to say
Track Name: Wayward Son
Carry on my wayward son
There’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more.

Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high
Though my eyes could see I still was a bling man
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I’m dreaming
I can hear them say

Carry on my wayward son
There’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more.

Masquerading as a man with a reason
My charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man
It surely means that I don’t know
On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about like I’m a ship on the ocean
I set a course for winds of fortune
But I hear the voices say

Carry on my wayward son
They’ll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don’t you cry no more, don’t you cry no more.
