about

Self-reflection, self-acceptance, and an invitation to take me only as I am.

lyrics

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.
