Can’t you see that this is it? Can’t you feel this magic? I’ve seen these stars align before it seems I’ve seen all this unfolding in a dream I heard a new voice this mornin’ and it said This is the next big thing so start actin’ like it It joined the chorus from before One voice sayin’ I’m not worth it, the other sayin’ I want more Can’t you see that this is it? Can’t you feel this magic? I’ve seen these stars align before it seems I’ve seen all this unfolding in a dream I’m tryin’ to believe In what the people all around us say they see It’s fallen from our fingers and mouths We’ve got a golden ticket now Can’t you see that this is it? Can’t you feel this magic? I’ve seen these stars align before it seems I’ve seen all this unfolding in a dream Hidin’ in the quiet corners of Virginia makin’ plans Hidin’ in the quiet corners of Virginia while we can

Lookin’ for another place to rest my head A room with a corner for my grandfather’s bed So quiet in the night that I could sleep like the dead A home to hide from the world when I’ve had enough of it And in the passin’ of another twelve moons Know I’m gonna have to move Another year, another man, another moon This year movin’ time came soon Know that I have to leave The dead are pushin’ me The livin’ won’t let me be Oh god, what I need is A little house Where I won’t be found On the outskirts Of an old-fashioned town A little piece of land With no neighbors around So when I need to cry or sing or make love Nobody will hear a sound Lookin’ for another place to rest my head Just room with a corner for my grandfather’s bed So quiet in the night that I could sleep like the dead A home to hide from the world when I’ve had enough of it And in the passin’ of another twelve moons I don’t wanna have to move Another year, another man, another moon This year movin’ time came soon I know that I have to leave The dead are pushin’ me The livin’ won’t let me be Oh god, what I need is A little house Where I won’t be found On the outskirts Of an old-fashioned town A little piece of land With no neighbors around So when I need to cry or sing or make love Nobody will hear a sound

If you're here right now I know it ain't workin' out If you feel like I feel Honey, I know it ain't real You're just hangin' on Like some people do To somethin' that you know And someone that you knew You spent a lot of years Learnin' how to love Now you're facin' the fear That you learned she ain't what you want Has your guilt Become a gilded cage? Will you stay there waitin' While the real thing slips away Honey, I hate to say It seems obvious to me The past gets in the way Of possibilities I'm not claimin' to know Everything goin' on I know I won't wait If this is gonna linger on If you're here right now I know it ain't workin' out If you feel like I feel Honey, I know it ain't real You're just hangin' on Like some people do To somethin' that you know And someone that you knew

Sorry that your boyfriend looks at me But it isn’t my responsibility To try to myself ugly So that your man can stay lookin’ at you Sorry that your boyfriend talks to me I can’t help it that I’m interesting I didn’t even know you were a thing Because your man said nothin’ about you You love him - I get that Don’t want to lose him, but you’re real mad You don’t know me so it’s easy To take your anger and turn it into jealousy But I won’t be the scapegoat Yeah, I won’t be your scapegoat Sorry that your boyfriend wants to leave But you shouldn’t blame that shit on me When he told me the truth about you I asked your man what the fuck was he doin’ You love him - I get that Don’t want to lose him, but you’re real mad You don’t know me so it’s easy To take your anger and turn it into jealousy But I won’t be the scapegoat Yeah, I won’t be the scapegoat Yeah, I won’t be the scapegoat I won’t be your scapegoat I told your man that we could just be friends I’m not gonna waste my time on someone else’s boyfriend I told your man that we could just be friends That if you two were in love, he should go patch it up I’m not gonna waste my time on someone else’s boyfriend You love him - I get that Don’t want to lose him, but you’re real mad You don’t know me so it’s easy To take your anger and turn it into jealousy But I won’t be your scapegoat Yeah, I won’t be your scapegoat I won’t be your scapegoat I won’t be your scapegoat

OK Highway 04:08
I fell apart in San Francisco Lost in the fog on the Golden Gate Bridge Now all I want is to be home But I got another couple weeks of this I built a fortress in Virginia With the Rappahannock River surroundin’ It’s sittin’ empty now without me I’m sittin’ in some hotel in Silicon Valley It can’t always be all good But it’s okay Nothin’ makes you miss your neck of the woods Like the highway I was lookin’ for a sign in Hollywood Some revelation written in the stars There before us in the shadows Were two coyotes standin’ in the Boulevard It can’t always be all good But it’s okay Nothin’ makes you miss your neck of the woods Like the highway I put myself back together in Santa Fe Now I don’t even want to go home - I wanna stay Here’s to Arizona and New Mexico For wakin’ up my sleepin’ soul It can’t always be all good But it’s okay Nothin’ makes you miss your neck of the woods Like the highway

I don’t need a savior or a crystal in my pocket Save your breath for breathin’ instead wasted thoughts and prayers For two dollars a minute, I could pay a therapist to spin it But that’s just too expensive so this is my cross to bear I’m rotten on the inside, but I look fine on the outside I push ‘em all away so they don’t see decay But it’s bleedin’ through the surface I get angry when I’m nervous No one gets to stay until I’m feelin’ okay No one gets to stay until I’m feelin’ okay No one gets to stay until I’m feelin’ okay If you wanna make it better, well I’ll tell you what to do Open up your mind a bit, make a little room You’re never gonna get it and I don’t expect ya to I’m carryin’ a lot here and need space to make it through Yeah, I know how to do this - I been doin’ it for a while I been livin’ with the darkness since I was just a child The dark ain’t gonna go away just ‘cause we want it to But in the darkness of the night, there are the stars and moon Nothin’ on the outside is gonna fix what’s on the inside So if you’re gonna stay, you’re gonna see me break Sometimes when I’m broken I don’t mean the words I’ve spoken Or the things I do - to separate the two Will take a bit of work, but I know that I am worth it If you wanna stay until I’m feelin’ okay If you wanna stay until I’m feelin’ okay If you wanna stay until I’m feelin’ okay If you wanna stay until I’m feelin’ okay If you wanna stay until I’m feelin’ okay

about

Maddi Mae Remington, Virginia

A mountain woman from Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, Maddi Mae now lives quietly in the hills.

Her music is a hearty blend of old and new. A sprinkling of folky Americana and off-beat psychedelia. Hints of folk and traditional ballads. Heaps of classic country and indie pop.

A straight-shooter, her words are the truth. One may know her better by listening to her songs than by meeting her.
