Eric Fitz Don't be fooled by the cover art. This isn't a torch singer album, but actually a brilliant work of POWER POP. It's mostly sweet and fast moving, but in a song like Dagger gets very dramatic. I love Madisyn's voice! Favorite track: Dagger.

Summer Love 04:11
Tell me Something to believe in Got me hooked And I am reeling I was taken Got your number Hesitating Keep my heart from breaking And I know That your words are full of doubt And I feel Like our worlds are torn apart Give me Something to believe in Shut me out I am still breathing You were taken Got my number Anticipating Your heart breaking This love’s on the run Holding out for summer love And I know You stole my heart from everyone And I see That your words are full of doubt And I feel Like our worlds are torn apart Tell me Something to believe in Got me hooked And I am reeling I was taken Got your number Hesitating Keep my heart from breaking This love’s on the run Holding out for summer love And I know You stole my heart from everyone! And I see Your words are full of doubt And I feel Like our worlds are torn apart

You Got something for me Shot down Living in a dream It’s a fucking scene Know what I mean Found hope in your bed Thought love was dead Thought love was dead I got nothing to lose After giving into you It’s a fucking scene Know what I mean Found hope in your bed Thought love was dead Thought love was dead It’s you it’s me It’s a killing desire It’s hard to reach IT gets us higher So hard too hard I just can’t reach it Your lips on mine I just don’t feel them I got nothing to lose Shot down with your blues As you slowly drift away I might think of you one day When I am stuck in my bed Yeah stuck in my bed Might think of your mouth Thought love was dead Thought love was dead I try and I try I’ll just steal it Your love’s going by When I don’t need it It’s you it’s me It’s a killing desire I am high so high I just can’t feel it My hits your lies Leaves you crying Our love, our love, our love, our love Our love, our love, our love, our love It’s you it’s me It’s a killing desire It’s you it’s me It’s a killing desire It’s you it’s me It’s a killing desire It’s you it’s me It’s a killing desire

So In Love 03:15
Candlelight Dancing when I came out tonight And I saw you Standing there I didn’t move Cause I don’t even care Cause I am so in love I am so in love Faded out What you put in Is what you get out So lets keep it clean So much left So much in between Our love So much left inside Wanna take you home Want to hold your bones Our love So much left inside Wanna take you home Want to hold your bones

Sweet Talk 02:53
Maybe I sweet talk To your face Waiting for the end of the world Waiting on one last kiss Make me sing Make my heart stop I am good girl With a head start I keep my cold feet Quiet like my heart Like everything you do Just want to get close to you If this love stops baby My heart keeps beating If this love stops baby My heart keeps beating If this love stops baby My heart keeps beating If this love stops baby My heart Only loved your embrace And your soft touch Bring your body close to mine It’s what I dream about I am a bad girl With a big heart I keep hot beats Playing in my car Like everything you do Just wanna get close to you If this love stops baby My heart keeps beating If this love stops baby My heart keeps beating If this love stops baby My heart keeps beating If thIs love stops baby If I should lose your love Then you will lose my heart If you should lose your love Then I will lose my heart If this love stops baby My heart keeps beating

Dagger 03:58
Hey There you go bright thing Pulling on my heart strings Saying come over Come over Come over Come over And I stand Bitter as a bee sting Wants me just for one thing Saying Come over Come over Come over Never knowing where I stand Sitting looking at my hands With a dagger in my heart Should have known right from the start Hey There you go you bright thing Easy with my heartstrings Saying come over Come over Come over Come over And I stand Saying all the right words Knowing just what hurts I am saying its over It’s over It’s over With a dagger in my heart Should have known right from the start So he leaves me where I stand As the blood drips through my hand Never knowing where I stand Sitting looking at my hands With a dagger in my heart Should have known right from the start Hey There you go you bright thing Easy with my heart strings Saying come over Come over Come over Come over And I stand Bitter as a bee sting Wants me just for one thing I am saying It’s over It’s over It’s over Never knowing where I stand Sitting looking at my hands With a dagger in my heart Should have known right from the start With a dagger in my heart Should have known right from the start So he leaves me where I stand As the blood drips through my hand

Don’t know how to stop Oh yeah we’ve been here before Oh no we won’t make it If we give in some more I like it this way I like it this way Don’t walk away Don’t walk away Got that look That comes as no surprise My heart lights up In a city on a fire I like it that way I like it that way Don’t walk away Don’t walk away And I know this feeling I feel you breathing Leave me a reason You’re love Is not enough Don’t know how we got here But it lead me to you Slammed the door shut But you still let me through I like it this way I like it this way Don’t walk away Don’t walk away I want your love Like I want your touch Don’t stop baby Until it’s enough I like it this way I like it this way Don’t walk away Don’t walk away And I know this feeling I feel you breathing Leave me a reason Your love Is not enough for me And I know This feeling I feel you breathing Leave me a reason You’re love Is not enough for me

We stood by the shoreline I had you in my sight There’s trouble on the water Turn my darkness into light I gave you a reason My heart was yours to break I took all the chances It was all too late When the morning comes What last night has done I go oh oh oh Everything we shared Could have wrecked today I go oh oh oh We stood by the water By the palest moonlight I made out your shadow Why can’t we get this right There’s trouble on the water You had me, in your sight One touch keeps me warm And safe from the night And when the morning comes What last has done I go oh oh oh Everything we shared Could have wrecked today I go oh oh oh We stood by the shoreline I had you in my sight There’s trouble on the water Turn my darkness into light I gave you a reason My heart was yours to break I took all the chances But it was all too late When the morning comes What last night has done I go oh oh oh Everything we shared Could have wrecked today I go oh oh oh We heard the church bells ring We heard the choir sing They go oh oh oh And the sun hung low Was going down real slow Over you

I am gonna hurt tonite By the time i close my eyes You’ll be with her in the light Kissing her goodnight I am gonna leave your hurt tonite By the time you close your eyes I’ll be standing I’ll be standing in the light No I am never gonna give in No I am never gonna give in It was everything to me You were so easy to believe Lost in a heaven meant for me I’ll still believe You’re gonna hurt like hell tonite By the time you close your eyes I’ll be happy I’ll be happy I am gonna hurt tonite By the time I realize I’ll be standing I’ll be standing in the light No I am never gonna give in No I am never gonna give in No I am never gonna give in No I am never gonna give in You waged a war inside my head Wore me down by circumstance And when there’s nothing left for me I’ll still believe You eyes were everything to me They were so easy to believe Lost in a heaven meant for me I’ll still believe No I am never gonna give in No I am never gonna give in No I am never gonna give in No I am never gonna give in No I am never gonna look back

Fire 04:23
Thursday Another shot at life Now that you’re gone Feels right Another Friday night Now you’re gone Do you sleep Holding on Do you dream On your own These days Another shot at life Now that you’re gone Hold tight To another Friday night Now that I am gone Do you keep Holding on Can’t satisfy my heart Can’t satisfy my love For you Has left me With the blues No fire in my eyes No fire in my Love for you Has given me the blues Thursday Another shot at life Can’t be wrong Feels right Another Friday night Now that you’re gone Do you sleep Holding on Can’t satisfy my heart Can’t satisfy my love For you Has given me The blues No fire in my eyes No fire in my love For you Has coloured me in blue Can’t satisfy my heart Can’t satisfy my love For you Has left me with the blues

If you take it My heart is used up now But I can fake it If you want me around Will you deny me All the things you hide Light up disaster I try to find A place you’ll notice And want me around Found out about you I’ll carry on anyhow Lately Can’t convince my heart That you’re waiting When I want out And you distract me Forever more Can you convince me My intentions are pure And maybe I don’t dream at all If I wake up Will you catch my fall I can give it My heart is filled up now I can make it When I want you around Will you deny me All the things you hide Light up disaster I try to find A love convincing A hurt inside Leave me waiting When I want out

about

Excitement courses through the veins of ‘Save Our Hearts,’ which opens with the breezy, washed out “Summer Love.” Like much of the album, it’s an uptempo track laced with melancholy and regret, a warm, nostalgic meditation on the ache of waiting for a love that that never comes. Sometimes Whajne tries to lure that love closer, as on the addictive “Killing Desire” or the sultry “One Shot.” Other times, she pushes it away, convincing herself it wasn’t meant to be on the ragged “Fire” or simply sitting with the sadness on the hypnotic “Never Give In.” Yet even in the depths of her sadness, Whajne always manages to find a silver lining, proclaiming on the lilting “Sweet Talk” that no matter what happens, “my heart keeps beating.”

about

Madisyn Whajne Toronto, Ontario

The debut album "Save Our Hearts" was recorded live to tape at Montreal’s famed Hotel2Tango with engineers Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, The Barr Brothers) and Shae Brossard (Bahamas, The Dears). The album is imbued with a visceral sense of loneliness and longing, a burning desire for connection and companionship that propels it endlessly forward in pursuit of something perpetually out of reach. ... more
