Lyrics & Commentary from Mary About her Songs

Seeing Mary Bee interact & talk on is totally different from hearing her sing — it’s like night & day. Talk to Mary & you’ll get a lot of whispering & the shy, innocent girl thing, but then she starts singing & that little girl starts to roar like a lion wearing a corset. The transition is amazing & funny at the same time.

A Little Q&A with Mary Bee

Who are your influences?

It is so varied! My #1 I would say is Madonna but there is a lot that contributed to my love for music. Growing up my parents were both huge music fans and introduced my siblings and I to so much we did not listen to much in terms of children’s music (except for Bill Harley of course – he is the best), otherwise there was always great music playing in our house or car like The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, The Moody Blues, The Beach Boys, Roy Orbison, Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon, etc etc. I loved all of this and when I was little I also went through a big grunge phase – then a huge phase of jazz standard singers, then Madonna as Evita made me fall in love with her at a young age (that soundtrack did not come out of my CD player for a good 6 months), then I got into some great divas like Christina, Britney and Jessica – I loved how powerful they all were on stage while embracing their girliness unapologeticly. I love great pop – fun songs that make your day a bit brighter – I think Taylor Swift is a master songwriter in that respect – the amount of joy she has brought into the world completely impresses me – I feel the same way about Weezer – I remember hearing The Blue Album and Pinkerton for the first time on the bus ride to a high school track meet (thanks to my friend Stu Wilson), and it felt like my brain exploded! I kept telling people about it like it was new and I guess I was the only one on earth that had not heard those albums before, but they have to be the funnest albums on earth. They have been the soundtrack to many fun drives to the beach in my life since :) The last couple years I have ‘discovered’ country music (I am from RI, so it is not thatt strange that it is semi-new to me hah). Clay Drayton (an amazing motown songwriter out here in LA – Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, etc) was giving me songwriting advice once and his jaw dropped when I told him I had not really listened to country music closely before – he made it my homework to listen to a bunch – and I fell in love! Dolly Parton has since become a new hero to me – her work ethic on top of her talent just blows my mind. I could answer this question for the next 3 days I think – but I’ll make myself stop here :)

When Did You Start Singing?

Honestly for as long as I can remember being alive/ able to speak. I remember when I was really little living in a little apartment attached to our barn (an old cow milking barn hah) while our house was being built in the back yard – I would stand on the back of the couch and perform the songs from Rainbow Brite for my family – and
when we finally moved into the new house we had a balcony that overlooked the dining room & living rooms. My best friend and I in kindergarten would put on shows there in our band called ‘The Bobcats’. We would actually make flyers for our shows and post them all over our houses and yards to invite everyone in our families – I can picture our band logo still hah – it was a take-off on the drama symbol of the two masks, one happy one sad – but with a bob cats face haa. It was pretty awesome. One funny story is I actually danced in my lower school talent show to a Janet Jackson song that my now A&R man and producer Mark Mazzetti actually put out – so wild!

I sang in church choirs and school choirs all growing up. I had the occasional solo but was more interested in starting a band. In highschool I started one called Aubergine with my close friends and it was seriously the funnest ever. We played a million shows and recorded a bunch as well, but the best part was skipping a ton of school to practice all day in best friends pool house hehe. I have not stopped since – I am obviously addicted to music, but I am ok with that 😛

What Are Your Music Goals

For me music has always helped me escape when times are hard or even just boring. I hope that my music can do that for people as well. Something so simple as knowing I may have helped make someones drive home from work nicer, or make cleaning the house more fun – would honestly make me feel like I have accomplished my goal, be it ever so humble 😉

Blueprints EP coming soon

 Blueprints-Sign

“This song was written about a year and a half after my Father passed on. He built our home when I was very young and this song is about my first memories in that house as well as my last. Its been the hardest thing I have ever dealt with. Writing, recording and performing this song has been a lot like therapy for me with the situation. I hope it helps anyone who misses their home life or family as well.” – Mary Bee


Lyrics

I wanted a tower all my own
Where I could let my hair down so long
I begged my father as he drew all the blueprints of our home

He smiled and showed me my own room
Told me that I’d love it he just knew
And I sat and I watched him as he drew the blueprints of our home

I remember standing there for the first time
Looking all around at what now was mine
That house felt so big the chandelier so high, And my, my

My heart cries sometimes For my home life
Blueprints under blue skies
Blueprints under blue skies

I would sing for hours in my room
Thinking no one could hear me but he could
My father finally told me that my song was
The lullaby of this home

I remember standing there for the first time
Looking all around at what now was mine
That house felt so big the chandelier so high, And my, my

My heart cries sometimes For my home life
Blueprints under blue skies
Blueprints under blue skies

I’m 1 of 7 the youngest of all
We are also different but we stand tall
My father finally told me he could not believe
How great we all turned out

I remember standing there for the last time
Looking all around at what once was mine
All that we left was a chandelier behind
But we still have the blueprints of our home

My heart cries sometimes For my home life sometimes
My heart cries sometimes For my home life
Blueprints under blue skies
Blueprints under blue skies
Blueprints under blue skies

On-A-Sunday-Sign

“This is a song about enjoying that glorious day of the week when you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do.
I think rest is underestimated. Work hard, play hard, R&R hard.”  – Mary Bee


Lyrics

I can’t wait anymore
Can’t go back to life before
I’ve already fallen for you

This moment here and now
Taken over, showing how our lives could be
And how

I wanna wake up with you on a Sunday
Nowhere to be its just you and me
Nothing to do but put my arms around- I’m so glad I found you baby
Nothing makes me feel like when
I wake up with you on a Sunday
Nowhere to be its just you and me
Nothing to do but put my arms around- I’m so glad I found you baby
Nothing makes me feel like when I’m with you

You’ve opened up my eyes
You’ve inspired me inside
Yeah you make me reach so high

I wanna wake up with you on a Sunday
Nowhere to be its just you and me
Nothing to do but put my arms around- I’m so glad I found you baby
Nothing makes me feel like when
I wake up with you on a Su
nday

Nowhere to be its just you and me
Nothing to do but put my arms around- I’m so glad I found you baby
Nothing makes me feel like when I’m with you

And I can’t come down
No I won’t try to fight it
You’ve got big plans do you now?
We’ll lets just throw them out

I wanna wake up with you on a Sunday
Nowhere to be its just you and me
Nothing to do but put my arms around- I’m so glad I found you baby
Nothing makes me feel like when
I wake up with you on a Sunday
Nowhere to be its just you and me
Nothing to do but put my arms around- I’m so glad I found you baby
Nothing makes me feel like when I’m with you

Drive-Sign

“This song was written in the waiting room of an oil change place. I was thinking about when I drove cross country, leaving my home in New England and everyone I loved. It was a hard decision and I still get really sad about it, but I knew it was time for me to just do it and give L.A. a try. I am so thankful that I did it, because it has been an incredible adventure and I’ve met the most amazing people who have helped me make more music that I love”  – Mary Bee


Lyrics

Every part of, every part of me says its time to leave
Its time to go on, move on, take on
Something that means much more to me

Oh its no use wondering why just
Let go and enjoy the ride
Its an open road for miles and miles
And I just wanna drive I just wanna drive yeah

No stopping there’s no turning back now
We can’t back down
From this aching that we’re chasing
Its ours for the taking lets just go

Oh its no use wondering why
Just let go and enjoy the ride
Its an open road for miles and miles
And I just wanna drive I just wanna drive

Ill just pick up and go
Nobody has to know no no
Running with the flow oh, oh

Oh its no use wondering why
Just let go and enjoy the ride
Its an open road for miles and miles
And I just wanna drive I just wanna drive

Ill-Never-Let-You-Go-Sign

“I don’t really feel like I can take credit for writing this song, it honestly came to me in a really weird dream hah. I woke up singing it and immediately recorded it. I was all ‘Sweet! Free song!’. The words do mean a lot to me though, but it was more of a discovery of what they meant to me rather than the usual process of putting my thoughts and emotions into words. It was pretty neat!” – Mary Bee


Lyrics

Come with me we can fly we can run away from here tonight
Baby we can go away from what we know, ohh

Just two kids running blind we can try to leave the world behind
Baby we can go, you know what we can go

Dreaming so perfectly, loving you helplessly
It may be reckless but I’ll never let you go
Take every part of me, I can’t live carefully
It may be reckless but I’ll never let you go

All the noise all around I just wanna get lost not found
Baby we can go, you know what we can go

Tell me when tell me where Ill come running to you oh I swear
Baby we can go, you know what we can go

Dreaming so perfectly, loving you helplessly
It may be reckless but I’ll never let you go
Take every part of me, I can’t live carefully
It may be reckless but I’ll never let you go

And oh, oh, when I’m holding your hand
I know, I know, I understand

Dreaming so perfectly, loving you helplessly
It may be reckless but I’ll never let you go
Take every part of me, I can’t live carefully
It may be reckless but I’ll never let you go
