"Why We're Over" words and music by Maddy Rodriguez

 

I wrote Why We're Over about how heartbreaking it feels when you don't understand why that person broke your heart. When you can't figure out why it ended all of a sudden. When you're going over everything trying to find the point at which it went from being amazing, to being over. That's what I went through when I wrote this song. I had fallen for a guy that I knew had fallen for me too, but he was backing out and running away and I had no idea why. And that was what hurt the most - the not knowing.

Man Overboard. Chapter # 2. Man Overboard EP.

Album cover Man Overboard EP

 

I wrote Man Overboard about a guy I dated a few years ago, who I was starting to fall in love with. I knew he was falling for me too. He told me he wanted me to be his girlfriend. I was hesitant to commit at first...

But then when I said "yes I want to be with you too", he started getting cold feet!! All of a sudden, he was afraid to get into a serious relationship, even though it was HIS IDEA! ... He kept coming up with a million different excuses why he shouldn't commit. I think it was because he was afraid of falling in love. He was afraid that if he loved me, that the other things in his life would suffer - his schoolwork, his business, his friends. ...He changed his mind a few times and tried to get me back, but then when we'd talk about it, he'd get scared and give up again. He kept jumping ship, and leaving me behind, confused, and angry, and sad. And that's how I got the idea for "Man Overbaord."

Lyrics

Man Overboard

Words and music by Maddy (Madison) Rodriguez

 

The wind is heavy

The clouds grow dark

Another tsunami

Ripping us apart and baby

 

You know I love you

I don’t give up, when the storm gets bad

But you’re afraid of injuries

So you won’t love me back

 

You never stick it out long enough

For the storm to pass

All you know how to do

Is give up and pack your bags

 

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

You jump into the water, swim to the shore

Just when I am needing you the most to stay

In the middle of the storm you always run away

Shame on me for thinking that you’d stick around

You fooled me like you’ve done so many times before

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

 

You race back to me

When you figure out that you’re alone

And usually I let you

Come back onto the boat

 

But eventually you abandon me

You always bail when you get scared

So I won’t take you in again

You can drown for all I care

 

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

You jump into the water, swim to the shore

Just when I am needing you the most to stay

In the middle of the storm you always run away

Shame on me for thinking that you’d stick around

You fooled me like you’ve done so many times before

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

 

You’re so predictable

And yet I always fall for you

But I can’t do this anymore with you

We’ve just been here too many times before

 

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

You jump into the water, swim to the shore

Just when I am needing you the most to stay

In the middle of the storm you always run away

Shame on me for thinking that you’d stick around

You fooled me like you’ve done so many times before

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

Once again I’m shouting man overboard

Game Changer. Chapter # 1. Man Overboard EP.

Album cover Man Overboard EPAre you his Game Changer?

Game Changer is the fist song on my my Man Overboard EP. I got the idea for the song from a line that Ryan Gosling says in the movie "Crazy Stupid Love." It's the scene where he's telling Steve Carell on the phone about falling in love with Emma Stone and says "I met a girl and she's a game changer." I thought  man, that's a good title! It made me think of how I was the game changer to my boyfriend, and he became mine. I had never fallen for someone like that before. It changed my world... I made a mental note of the title and saved it for later. About a year later, I wrote the chorus and brought it to my friend Brett Truitt in Nashville (he's an awesome writer and producer and has a duo called Truitt).

We wrote the song from the perspective of convincing "that" person you're into that despite how scary falling for someone can be, you could be their Game Changer! You could be the one who changes their world. You could be the one.

 

Game Changer  lyrics

By Maddy Rodriguez and Brett Truitt

 

I heard she stole your heart and smashed it

You won’t let anybody else patch it up

I heard that now you’re just another player

You always break it off before you get hurt

Baby I can change your world

 

I know you’re tired Of girls that screwed you over

I ain’t like the others Baby let me prove it

Anything you want for you I can do it

Trust me I can make you love me

I know you think about me

Why you’re trying to fight it

Give it a shot

Baby won’t you try it out

I could be the game changer

 

I could be what you didn’t think you wanted

This might be even better than your wildest dreams

You need a little light in your darkness

Your heart is locked and baby, I’m the key

 

I know you’re tired

Of girls that screwed you over

I ain’t like the others

Baby let me prove it

Anything you want for you

I can do it

Trust me I can make you love me

I know you think about me

Why you’re trying to fight it

Give it a shot

Baby won’t you try it out

I could be the

Only thing that change your life

Change your heart and change your mind

Baby, you know I would treat you right

 

I know you’re tired

Of girls that screwed you over

I ain’t like the others

Baby let me prove it

Anything you want for you

I can do it

Trust me I can make you love me

I know you think about me

Why you’re trying to fight it

Give it a shot

Baby won’t you try it out

I could be the Game Changer

 

CHORUS x2
