Title: “Young Blood”
Artist: Maddie Urie
Release Date: June 23, 2013
Length: 38:07
Recorded: San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, California – January – June, 2013
Genres: Electropop, Pop-Punk, Synth-Pop, Pop, Alternative
Label: Songs to Love and Die By
Producers: Maddie Urie, Julian Morello, Amy Meyer

‘Young Blood’ is the debut album by American Electropop multi-instrumentalist musician ‘Maddie Urie’. Recorded between January and June 2013 it marks the first solo release from the young musician following a previous effort in 2010 as part of the indie-pop duo ‘Two Equals Three’, that venture into the music world never really took off in the way that both members of the band had hoped and they both decided to split and find their own pathway into the music industry. The majority of the songs from the album were written this year, however four of the songs were already recorded in 2012 as demo versions with slightly different lyrics in comparison to those that appear on the album. These demos were the catalyst in Maddie Urie being signed by ‘Songs to Love and Die By’ after Amy Meyer was given the demo recordings, she then went on to make Maddie Urie her very first signing to her record label.

The album mixes elements of electro-pop and pop-punk, with a heavy influence of both genres throughout the album with keyboards, synthesizers and electric guitar, drums and bass guitar. All instruments throughout the album were recorded solely by Maddie Urie, recorded in stages before she layed down the vocals. This hands-on situation will be resolved when she tours with a backing band. The entire lyrics and composition throughout the album were created by Maddie Urie, one exception is the track ‘Young Blood’ which was co-writer by post-hardcore musician ‘Alex Simms’. The album was produced by both Maddie Urie and Amy Meyer with additional help coming from Julian Morello.
The album features the debut single from the young musician ‘Put On A Brave Face’, the single helped show audiences the sort of music that Urie would be creating in the future and the reaction was highly positive by fans, peers and critics alike, this culminated in the lead single peaking at a #3 in the charts, making it a hugely successful new start for the musician. However this wasn’t capitalized by Urie or her label as they opted to put all of the focus into making the debut album and getting it released during the summer.

The album was recorded between January and June 2013, in San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, California at a recording studio only five minutes from Maddie Urie’s home. The album will be released under the record label ‘Songs to Love and Die By’ and more singles from the album have been promised in an early press release for the album. The album comes in at just under forty minutes in length and will be available in all different kinds of formats, digital download, CD Single and Vinyl and will be available from all good record stores as well as from iTunes, Amazon and the ‘Songs to Love and Die By’ official website. The album will be released on June 23, 2013.

Title: “Timid By Nature”
Artist: Maddie Urie
Length: 2:47
Genre: Electro-Pop, Pop
Writer(s): Maddie Urie
Producer(s): Maddie Urie, Julian Morello, Amy Meyer

LYRICS;

“They bring you up to do things right
But when you do things right
You’ll find yourself alone at night
Because nobody wants perfection at least nobody I’ve ever met
And it seems to lead me to the conclusion
That I’m an unlovable soul
So just dig me a hole
And bury me underground
So far that I’ll never be found
Let me live in peace
Peace, peace,
Peace

This is me
This is what I’ve become
I don’t feel old
But I don’t feel young
I’m just living life the way I was told
I don’t feel young
But still I don’t feel old

I’m stuck here
Every night
Trapped in my thoughts
Wondering if things will turn out right
Will I have a wonderful life
Full of magical things
Or will I continue down this unfulfilled life
Dreaming of a love that nobody brings

This is me
This is what I’ve become
I don’t feel old
But I don’t feel young
I’m just living life the way I was told
I don’t feel young
But still I don’t feel old

I’m just me
I’m timid by nature
I live my life for myself
And I live it alone
I hold myself back
Fully aware of everything that I lack
I’ve got low self-esteem
And yet I still dream
But I don’t want to dream anymore
So take these things from me
I don’t need them
Because I’m not good enough
I’m just timid by nature”

Title: “Butterflies”
Artist: Maddie Urie
Length: 3:52
Genre: Electro-Pop, Pop
Writer(s): Maddie Urie
Producer(s): Maddie Urie, Julian Morello, Amy Meyer

LYRICS;

“Dark thoughts are creeping into my mind, I’m staring at these four walls
Scared of what I might find tonight, I’ve never felt so cold
We are all trying to find our way, falling one by one
The fight has never took so much away
I don’t feel so strong

Don’t go it alone
Look for someone to be a guiding light
Hold on with all of your might and believe that we’ll all be alright
Because we can shine bright, we can be beautiful tonight
We can be like butterflies
Blazed across these summer skies

When you get to your special place, don’t ever look back
You may be out of your comfort zone
But you’ll be safe at last

Don’t go it alone
Look for someone to be a guiding light
Hold on with all of your might and believe that we’ll all be alright
Because we can shine bright, we can be beautiful tonight
We can be like butterflies
Blazed across these summer skies

Hold on, because we are the searchers
The believers in love, no matter how long the road is ahead
We’ll shine high above the skyline
We’ll shine high above in the summer skies
Fluttering like butterflies

Don’t go it alone
Look for someone to be a guiding light
Hold on with all of your might and believe that we’ll all be alright
Because we can shine bright, we can be beautiful tonight
We can be like butterflies
Blazed across these summer skies

Don’t go it alone
Look for someone to be a guiding light
Hold on with all of your might and believe that we’ll all be alright
Because we can shine bright, we can be beautiful tonight
We can be like butterflies
Blazed across these summer skies”

Title: “Put On A Brave Face”
Artist: Maddie Urie
Length: 4:11
Genre: Electro-Pop, Pop
Writer(s): Maddie Urie
Producer(s): Maddie Urie, Julian Morello, Amy Meyer

LYRICS;

“I wandered towards the edge
Of this blood-stained window ledge
I just stood there balancing
Teetering on the brink of self-destruction once again
Just like every other Friday night
Maybe if I fall
I won’t have to worry about feeling this way anymore
Maybe if I fall
I won’t ever have to worry at all

I put on a brave face
Smear my make-up like it’s war-paint
I dance and I smile
I drink for a little while
I take it all in
And pretend that it’s alright
I’m not looking for a couple hours of joy
Just want to make it through the night

Because if I don’t smile
If I don’t dance
Then I don’t stand a chance
Of making it out of this night alive
If I spend it at home
Drinking alone
I’ll escape to the rooftop
Jump just to feel my heart stop

And that would be okay
That’s what I’ve wanted every single day
Since everyone I loved went away
What difference does it make if I don’t make it through another day
There’s nothing they can say
To change how I feel
God knows that I’ve tried
But I don’t think I’m destined to heal

I’ll put on a brave face
Smear my make-up like it’s war-paint
I dance and I smile
I drink for a little while
And sure enough
This pain goes away
If only for an hour or two
But at least it’s enough to get me through

If I don’t smile
If I don’t dance
Then I don’t stand a chance
Of making it out of this night alive
And that would be okay
That’s what I’ve wanted every single day
Since everyone I loved all went away
What difference does it make if I don’t make it through another day
There’s nothing they can say
To change how I feel
God knows that they’ve tried
But I don’t think I’m destined to heal”

OOC: Thanks! It's kind of a sad song so that ain't so good, but I'm glad that you could relate to it. I didn't think anybody related to any lyrics that I write but it's nice that you do!

Maddie: Thanks Julia, I like to mess around with the electronics and stuff. But I think a voice on it's own can be very powerful, I hope you enjoy the rest of the album :)

Title: “All That We’re Dreaming Of”
Artist: Maddie Urie
Length: 4:26
Genre: Electro-Pop, Pop
Writer(s): Maddie Urie
Producer(s): Maddie Urie, Julian Morello, Amy Meyer

LYRICS;

“I still remember that tear in your eye
Your soft trembling hands as I said goodbye
That look on your face when I said I was leaving
For a moment or two it felt like I had stopped breathing
But you fought back the tears and forced a smile
You said you’d be alright it would just take a short while
You said you don’t hate me
And that you understand
Then with a moment you took hold of my hand
And then you let go

We sat there for hours
And we talked together all night
We thought it was incredible how we’d never fight
When all of our friends had their sad little drama’s
We’d be wrapped up in bed with our matching pyjamas
We used to be so close together
It felt like we were one
But since our wounds became open
It only ever felt wrong

Inside jokes just became stale and tiring
Cupid had all the arrows but he just wasn’t firing
We drifted apart
It’s too hard to explain
I can only apologize for all of this pain
And hope that you can forgive me

You had a huge heart and you let me inside
When my days felt so long
Together we’d hide
Under the covers
In our own little world
Held close together just the love of a boy and a girl

But it’s different now
It’s not the same
I only have myself to blame
We drifted away too far from the shore
It hurts so bad that my love for you is no more
And the best thing I can do
Is for me to let go

I know that you’ll find someone
And you’ll make her feel like a princess
My heart isn’t meant for two
It’s just a big mess
But your heart is beautiful
It’s full of love
You’re like something out of a fairytale
You’re all that we’re dreaming of

But it’s different now
It’s not the same
I only have myself to blame
We drifted away too far from the shore
It hurts so bad that my love for you is no more
And the best thing I can do for you
Is for me to let go”

Title: “Such Fragile Little Things”
Artist: Maddie Urie
Length: 5:19
Genre: Electro-Pop, Pop
Writer(s): Maddie Urie
Producer(s): Maddie Urie, Julian Morello, Amy Meyer

LYRICS;

“How is it that a person can still believe even when they’ve been shot down so much
How is it that our hearts can still beat when they’ve bled for so long
How is it that a person can be heartbroken beyond repair and still sing the words to their favourite song
How is it that we’re all still alive when it sometimes feels like there’s nothing left to live for
How is it that we keep holding on even though it would be so much easier to let go
And how are we still standing when we’re surrounded by the smouldering wreckage of love and despair
How come we can still smile when the one person that we love is no longer there
How come we all go through this
Forever searching for that unattainable bliss

When you’re young, you think you know it all
But the truth is that you don’t and you’ve got to learn to fall
Because the reasons we go through struggle and hardship and pain
Is to become stronger people
These are the things that we’ll gain
A strength
An understanding
A meaning and a place
A question with an answer and the smallest piece of grace
A realisation that life is quite long
And if we’re to live it
We all need to learn to be strong

So we need somebody to take our hand and hold it up higher now
To take our heart and soul and pick it up from the ground
Because from wreckages and ruins will become something far more great
Just always remember
Love is much stronger than hate

So if you could, then I’m sure that you would
Pick up all of the little pieces
And put them back together
Because none of us are truly strong
We’re all searching for a place to belong
But it’s alright
Because the church bell always rings
And we’ll all be okay
We’re all such fragile little things

So we need somebody to take our hand and hold it up higher now
To take our heart and soul and pick it up from the ground
Because from wreckages and ruins will become something far more great
Just always remember
Love is much stronger than hate

How is it that a person can still stand the fight when the odds are against them
How is it that we can smile when our world is crumbling around us
How is it that despite our best intentions we still falter along the way
How is it that you can be in love and yet have so little to say
How is it that you can look in the mirror and not feel ashamed when you see the person you’ve become
How is it that in the slightest moment of honesty you’ll be the one to run
How is it that you can live with yourself knowing that I’m stuck here trying to picture your face
How is it that the harder I try to picture you, the harder it is to trace
How is it that we fall for everything that love brings
How is it that we’re all such fragile little things”

Title: “Jealousy Doesn’t Look Good On You”
Artist: Maddie Urie
Length: 3:31
Genre: Electro-Pop, Pop
Writer(s): Maddie Urie
Producer(s): Maddie Urie, Julian Morello, Amy Meyer

LYRICS;

“It’s lonely here on the road
It’s not quite the way you imagine it to be
I know that you’re home alone
But can’t you see it’s the same for me
The difference is that I’m travelling around the world
While you’re stuck there, hating me
I just wish you could see

This lifestyle is not what you think
There’s no late night party’s fuelled by drink
When I get lonely
I don’t look for a booty call
I hold your picture close to my chest
Just feeling so small

You get my friends to check up on me
Just to see if I’ve got some male company
I guess you just can’t see what is true
Well darlin’ jealousy doesn’t look good on you

You think that it’s a party every night
That I won’t be going home alone tonight
But that couldn’t be further from reality
The truth is that I’m lonely
And I need you here with me
It’s no late drinking
No drug taking
It’s a cold and lonely night wrapped up in bed
Because inside my heart is breaking

This lifestyle is not what you think
There’s no late night party’s fuelled by drink
When I get lonely
I don’t look for a booty call
I hold your picture close to my chest
I’ve never felt so cold

Don’t get my friends to check up on me
Just to see if I’ve got some male company
I guess you just can’t see what is true
Well darlin’ jealousy doesn’t look good on you”

Title: “Young Blood (feat. Alex Simms)”
Artist: Maddie Urie
Length: 4:33
Genre: Pop-Punk, Alternative
Writer(s): Maddie Urie, Alex Simms
Producer(s): Maddie Urie, Julian Morello, Amy Meyer

LYRICS;

Maddie Urie – Purple
Alex Simms – Dark Blue

“The smoke is lingering high above our heads
In the breeze of this autumn night
I can hear laughter from our friends in the background
I’d normally question all of the things that they do
But tonight my attention is focussed on you
Every time you catch my eye line
I can feel a spark
Every time I let my mind wander
It’s always just you and me alone in the dark
I know what they all think of me
Always smiling but they know I’m not truly happy
Until I get my way
And I’ll get my way today


Come here, come a little closer now
Let’s remove this sexual tension
Let us break our silence now
Eyes across the room!
Just isn’t enough tonight!
We both want it!
Don’t deny it!
Don’t look away!
Cos’ you can’t hide it!
Let’s throw away our senses
In a moment of passion
Did nobody tell you? I’m the latest fashion!


They call us the young blood
With fragile minds and killer smiles
Screwed up beyond repair

Cry into your pillow, hide from all despair
We’re all wired wrong
Hell is above
And heaven is below
Throw away the keys of my soul
Lock the doors
We shall hide
I’m not afraid so long as you’re inside


I don’t think you can call this love
Just a troubling obsession
I can’t shake the thought of losing you
You’re my prised possession
And if I have to kill
In order to keep you in my life
Then believe me I will
Just hand me the f*cking knife


They call us the young blood
With fragile minds and killer smiles
Screwed up beyond repair

Cry into your pillow, hide from all despair
We’re all wired wrong
Hell is above
And heaven is below
Throw away the keys of my soul
Lock the doors

I’m not afraid so long as you’re inside

Title: “Three Fingers Pointing Back”
Artist: Maddie Urie
Length: 3:57
Genre: Electro-Pop, Pop
Writer(s): Maddie Urie
Producer(s): Maddie Urie, Julian Morello, Amy Meyer

LYRICS;

“There you are again, right on cue
Ready to criticize every single thing that I do
Anything you can think of saying
Just to make me feel sad
Maybe one day you’ll realize the effect that your words can have
Don’t you see what pain it can bring
When you take your selfish shots
Just constantly firing

I’m only doing what I love
I don’t ask you to worship me
I don’t even ask you to listen to me
So why do you do it
Have you got nothing better to do
I put out a new song
And there you are
Right on cue

I’m way too thin, I don’t eat enough
I can’t sing and I ain’t so tough
I just can’t write like all the other girls
I can only write about falling in love, diamonds and pearls
My smile ain’t perfect and neither is my hair
I may not be a pop princess
But I don’t understand why you really care

So when you point your finger at me
Pointing back at you there’s always gonna be three
So when you point your finger at me
There’s always gonna be three fingers pointing back
When you point your singer at me
You’re really just highlighting all of the things that you lack

I’m only doing what I love
So why can’t you just leave me be
I’m just living my life
I don’t even ask you to listen to me
So how about you worry about your life
And I’ll take care of my own
I won’t lose sleep any more
I’m so much stronger than I’ve shown

So when you point your finger at me
Pointing back at you there’s always gonna be three
So when you point your finger at me
There’s always gonna be three fingers pointing back
When you point your singer at me
You’re really just highlighting all of the things that you lack”

Title: “Walk Away With Your Head Held High”
Artist: Maddie Urie
Length: 3:12
Genre: Electro-Pop, Pop
Writer(s): Maddie Urie
Producer(s): Maddie Urie, Julian Morello, Amy Meyer

LYRICS;

“Somewhere down the beaten track
We’ve lost our way and we can’t make it back
To the place where we once felt an unbreakable bond
To a place where we both belonged
Things have changed
Twist and turned
I guess we’ll call it a lesson learned

Life is no Cinderella story
It’s not all about hope and glory
It’s about standing strong in the darkness
Keep going on when it seems like there’s no fight left
It’s about picking up the pieces when your life has become a mess
It’s not about rainbows and unicorns
Holding hands in the park
It’s about staying strong when you’re left alone in the dark

It’s not about the nightlight that keeps the demons away
It’s not about the lost love that you believe will come back to you someday
It’s not about perfection because we all know that it doesn’t exist
It’s not about the tenderness of that first kiss
It’s not about the fireflies that light up the summer skies
It’s not about welcome’s
It’s about how you deal with the goodbye’s

Stay strong
You’ll find a place where you belong
Keep calm
Carry on
Love has gone
Just hold on

So just walk away
With your head held high
Knowing all along just how hard you try
So you didn’t get what you wanted and your dreams didn’t come true
But just believe in something better that will come to you
So just walk away with your head held high
I know it gets hard not to cry
I know there seems like times when there’s nothing left to give
But there’s always something for you
For as long as you live

So just walk away with your head held high
Knowing someday that those tears will eventually dry
So just stay strong because you’ll find a place
So put on a smile and dry the tears from your face”

Title: “What I’ve Become”
Artist: Maddie Urie
Length: 4:19
Genre: Pop-Punk, Electronic
Writer(s): Maddie Urie
Producer(s): Maddie Urie, Julian Morello, Amy Meyer

LYRICS;

“She was an old friend
But she’s judging me once more
She’s perched on her pedestal
I couldn’t be any closer to the floor
I can feel her watching me
Watching every single move that I make
If I could just have one wish
It would be to make those branches break

It’s lonely at the top they say
Well they should try being stuck at the bottom
When your choices just seem to fail
And your luck ran out a long time ago
Just like the memory of every face I used to know

I find myself alone
Drinking from a bottle
It only helps to numb the pain
Removes all feeling
So I do it over and over again
And one day it will win
And I will be gone
If I’m being honest with myself
I hope it doesn’t take so long

Mom and dad, do you remember my face?
I’ll bet I never cross your mind
It’s such a lonely place
Here right now
It’s killing me slow
The only relief
Is that nobody will know

So look in the mirror
See all of your pretty little lies
At least I don’t feel guilty
When I see the reflection looking back at me
This is my life
It’s pretty f*cking numb
I guess this is me
This is what I’ve become

I find myself alone
Drinking from a bottle
It only helps to numb the pain
Removes all feeling
So I do it over and over again
And one day it will win
And I will be gone
If I’m being honest with myself
I hope it doesn’t take so long

So look in the mirror
See all of your pretty little lies
At least I don’t feel guilty
When I see the reflection looking back at me
This is my life
It’s pretty f*cking numb
I guess this is me
This is what I’ve become”

Nadia: I LOVE you, you really are a much needed change in pop music, I love the whole direction you've taken with this record. The fact that you write all your own lyrics and they're so honest and revealing is something I can really appreciate and relate to. I'll definitely be supporting this, fantastic.

OOC: I know how you feel about just posting lyrics, it's so much easier and I've done it myself often, so I don't blame you! Doesn't take away from the quality of the lyrics though, because I've always been a fan of your writing, great stuff. :)

Maddie: Wow, thank you! that's a huge compliment, especially coming from somebody who's been just about the biggest name in modern music in the past few years. It's so great to hear that you enjoy the record so much and yeah, I think it's important to write your own songs and I don't think I'd ever be able to give up that part of the creative process, I'm glad they came across as honest and revealing! It's essentially my last three years in song form! Thanks again for the support ... my mind is officially blown! :)

OOC: Thaaaaaaaaanks! :) Yeah, I'm still not entirely comfortable with just doing the lyrics, but it makes things a million times easier especially when I just don't have as much time to write things now, so I'm glad that it's not such a problem :)
