MYSPACE (Demo) - Maria Elena


Hi all. Thought I would share this with you. A while back, I wrote the lyrics to a song that would later become 'Myspace.' The melody was running around my head...and sooner or later, it became this. I realize it's a rather rough demo, but hey, I recorded it on the GarageBand app on my phone. I hope one day I can master it.

I'm proud of it because of what it means to me. Myspace is very sacred to me. While many people are embarrassed of the good ol Myspace days, I cherish it. I met so many lovely souls and it really changed pop culture as we know it today. This song is about that time. This song is for Tom and the cool kids I met along the way.


Always. x Maria



LYRICS:
i'll text you on my flip phone
"meet me at the park"
i'll be wearing skinny jeans
sitting in the dark

then maybe you'll come over
we'll take some mirror pictures
listen to some pop punk
pretend to drink liquor

and I know
i'm living in the past
but i know you think about me every now and then
i know you think about me when the clock strikes ten

so would you add me to your top 8
on myspace
before it's too late
before we have to say goodbye
(i really miss you but i gotta find some piece of mind)

i bet you're in your basement
blasting linkin park
i wish i could be there now
but there would be no spark

then maybe you'll IM me
"come to the arcade"
you'll be wearing black converse
driving me insane

and i know
i'm living in the past
but i know you think about me every now and then
yeah i know you think about me when the clock strikes ten

so would you add me to your top 8
on myspace
before it's too late
before we have to say goodbye
(i really miss you but i gotta find some piece of mind)

please don't fade away
no, please don't make me say goodbye.

so please just add me there 
and i'll never disappear from your virtual heart
you're a pixelated work of art

i'll text you on my iphone
"meet me at the park"
i'll be in the blue  sundress
sitting in the dark

i know you're not here now
but we have our memories
when they sing "dear maria"
please think of me.

i put you in my top 8
on myspace
where you'll be waiting
where our love will never die

i really miss you, i, i know
our love will never die
i really miss you but our love will never die
