Biography

About Lennie (Formerly known as Hannah P): I am an 19 year old singer/songwriter from the UK. I have been writing lyrics and melodies since I was 13 and recently ventured into writing music & producing. I was a runner-up in the 2005 UK Songwriting Contest in the 'Indie/Rock' category with the song 'Skru U' and have many more tracks just waiting to say "Hello"!!!

I've traveled extensively from a young age, which has naturally had an effect on my musical tastes. I spent a great deal of my early teens singing with seasoned cover bands, generally performing Top 40 material but sometimes performing my own. I have also had the opportunity of performing on the Queen Mary 2 cruise ship & at Sundance in Provo, Utah (Robert Redfords resort), the list goes on.

In Sept 05 I was runner-up in a Country Music talent contest in Los Angeles, where I was up against some seasoned competition.

In 2006 I regularly attended a variety of open mic nights in Vancouver BC. I relish any opportunity to perform live and show off my talents gaining valuable audience feedback.

More recently I have been performing at various venues in Southern Spain and currently I'm performing on the London circuit but I am willing to travel anywhere in the world for the right offer or opportunity.

As a result of travelling so much, I chose to learn an array of languages to enhance my international appeal. I can now speak fluent Spanish (iYo puedo hablar Espanol!), Portuguese, have a good command French and German and a basic knowledge of Italian and I'm always trying to learn new tongues. I'm preparing for GLOBAL success.

My goal is to continue to make credible music, have fun with it, and of course realize my dream of playing to packed audiences around the world, especially The Grand Ole Opry Nashville and of course being a Brit !WEMBLEY!

Finally my musical influences are; Avril Lavigne, Shakira, Billy Idol, Maroon 5, Big & Rich, Hanson, Good Charlotte, Keith Urban, Charlie Daniels Band, The Calling, Kenny Chesney, The Dixie Chicks, Sara Evans and Greenday - to name but a few! My taste in music is very diverse - from Opera to Rock, Jazz to Pop; with the exception of most house and techno - you name it, I probably like it.

Lyrics

Me 4 Me

Written By: Lennie

I always get it wrong, I
Always take too long
I always think I’m right and it always ends up in a fight
I always say too much
Don’t look before I touch
Which path should I choose?
What have I got to lose?

And I look up and down and I still can’t find what I’m looking for
I’m spinning around and ‘round
And I know that there’s gotta be more baby

Some point in my life I’ll realise
I’ve got everything I need
Companions, friends who give me room to breathe
People who love me for me
Oh yeah
People, who love me for me

I’m always keeping score, I
Always ask for more
Are you happy now I’m sad? My life’s in turmoil are you glad?

And I look up and down and I still can’t find what I’m looking for
I’m spinning around and ‘round
And I know that there’s gotta be more baby

Some point in my life I’ll realise
I’ve got everything I need
Companions, friends who give me room to breathe
People who love me for me

Some point in my life I’ll realise
I’ve got everything I need
Companions, friends who give me room to breathe

Family who care
Real friends who are there
I’ll get it right I’ll try with all of my might

For the people who love me for me

I don’t need to be anyone else
Around them I can be myself
And I know I’ve got good friends
Who will be there ‘til the end
What’s so hard for you to comprehend yeah?

Some point in my life, I’ll realise
I’ve got everything I need
Companions, friends
Who give me room to breathe
People, who love me for me

Some point in my life
Oh, I got everything I need
Companions, friends who give me room to breathe

Family who care
Real friends who are there
I’ll get it right I’ll try with all of my might

For the people, who love me
For me

The people, who love me
For me

Do You Understand

Written By: Lennie

If my imagination could rule this conversation
You would be saying baby I love you
Oh darlin’ can’t you see
I need you here with me
I wanna hold you tight
All throughout the night

Do you understand the meaning of love
And why people say it’s true
Do you ever think that there is someone special
Waiting out there for you
Do you understand the meaning of lust
And what people say and do
Have you ever loved someone so much
That it hurts when they say ‘We’re through’

If my heart and soul and pride could rule what you feel inside
You would be calling me right back
Oh baby don’t you know
I didn’t want you to go
I need to hold you tight
All throughout the night

Do you understand the meaning of love
And why people say it’s true
Do you ever think that there is someone special
Waiting out there for you
Do you understand the meaning of lust
And what people say and do
Have you ever loved someone so much
That it hurts when they say ‘We’re through’

‘Cos when I close my eyes
All I can think of is you
And you too had tears in your eyes
When you said ‘We’re through’

Do you understand the meaning of love
And why people say it’s true
Do you ever think that there is someone special
Waiting out there for you
Do you understand the meaning of lust
And what people say and do
Have you ever loved someone so much
That it hurts when they say
It hurts when they say
Oh, it hurts when they say
‘We’re through’... oh oh, yeah

Skru U

Written By: Lennie

Skru u, you’re not worth it
All you do is work it
Selling yourself for free
Just dial 0906-EASY
I said, Skru u
You’re not worth it
All you do is work it
You’ll get through to someone cheap I used to defend
Someone who used to be my best friend
Skru u, you’re not worth it
No

So hurt I can’t believe it
Never thought that you’d do it to me
Confided in you
Trusted in you
Told you things I’ve never told anybody
Skru’d me over once – never again
I finally realised you’re all the same
Fool me once, shame on you
You won’t fool me twice, don’t blame it on me

And I don’t wanna see your face anymore
Don’t wanna see you knocking on my door
You’d better leave now, unless you wanna be
On your ass, on the floor (0906-EASY)

Skru u, you’re not worth it
All you do is work it
Selling yourself for free
Just dial 0906-EASY
I said, Skru u
You’re not worth it
All you do is work it
You’ll get through to someone cheap I used to defend
Someone who used to be my best friend
Skru u, you’re not worth it
No

So you thought that it would be good for you
To hurt the person who’s always been there
Through everything
The thick and thin
Told you things she’d never told anybody
Never realised you were like all the others
The people that you used to hide from and sought security
In my arms

And I don’t wanna hear your voice anymore (no, no)
Already told you once but now I’m sure
‘Cos you’d better leave now, unless you wanna be
On your ass, on the floor (0906-EASY)

Skru u, you’re not worth it
All you do is work it
Selling yourself for free
Just dial 0906-EASY
I said, Skru u
You’re not worth it
All you do is work it
You’ll get through to someone cheap I used to defend
Someone who used to be my best friend
Skru u, you’re not worth it
No
Skru u, you’re not worth it
No

I don’t want you ‘round no more
(Don’t want you, I don’t want you)
Thought that you were my best friend
(Thought you were, I thought you were)
Now I know that all you are
(All you are, all that you are)
Is a cheap and dirty whore

Skru u, you’re not worth it
All you do is work it
Selling yourself for free
Just dial 0906-EASY
I said, Skru u
You’re not worth it
All you do is work it
You’ll get through to someone cheap I used to defend
Someone who used to be my best friend
Skru u, you’re not worth it
No

Skru u, you’re not worth it
All you do is work it
Selling yourself for free
Just dial 0906-EASY
I said, Skru u
You’re not worth it
All you do is work it
You’ll get through to someone cheap I used to defend
Someone who used to be my best friend
Skru u, you’re not worth it
No

Skru u, you’re not worth it
No

What a Shame

Written By: Lennie

(Bade bade bu-bah bu-bah bade bade bu-bah bu-bah)

You slam the door when you know that I hate it
Round and round, you’re always trying to complicate things
Trivialising everything that I say
Making me do everything your way

(Bade bade bu-bah bu-bah bade bade bu-bah bu-bah)

Now I’ve got a question, and I don’t care if you answer
Is it natural, for you to act how you do
Or is it all a pretence
To fool everybody
‘Cos you don’t like being you

Well I’m not taking it no more
No way
No way

This girl’s got a life
This girl’s got a brain
That’s why I’ve got a ticket
And I’m getting on that train
No more pain and strife
No more driving me insane
Oh, now you’re crying
Now you’re crying
What a shame

(Bade bade bu-bah bu-bah bade bade bu-bah bu-bah)

I’ve got to go, I’m sorry if I hurt you
Oh wait, no I’m not
I’m so glad I’ll soon be rid of you
You’ve been making me feel like I’m so small
While you’re feeling like ten feet tall
Well boy it’s your turn to fall
Bye bye, bye bye baby
This girl’s got a life
This girl’s got a brain
That’s why I’ve got a ticket
And I’m getting on that train
No more pain and strife
No more driving me insane
Oh, now you’re crying
Now you’re crying
What a shame

I can’t wait around, begging to be kicked around
Don’t you see, it’s not me
It’s not who I wanna be

So I’m leaving you

I’m free, the new me
Exactly who I wanna be, wanna be
Exactly who I wanna be

This girl’s got a life
This girl’s got a brain
That’s why I’ve got a ticket
And I’m getting on that train
No more pain and strife
No more driving me insane
Oh, now you’re crying
Now you’re crying

This girl’s got a life
This girl’s got a brain
That’s why I’ve got a ticket
And I’m getting on that train
No more pain and strife
No more driving me insane
Oh, now you’re crying
Now you’re crying (x2)
What a shame

Can't Fool Me

Written By: Lennie

I can’t smile
I can’t cry
I can’t believe you were with her tonight
You brought me flowers
Once again
But I haven’t even accused you yet
So what are you tryna defend

I can see through you
And I can see it in your eyes
Don’t forget that I know exactly who you are
I can see the real you
And I can see through your disguise
And baby, oh
You can fool around but you can’t fool me

Tell her you love her
Just like you told me
Go ahead and tell her she is all you’ll ever need
Just forget about me
I’m just the background
If you don’t need me then
Why do I hang around

But I can see through you
And I can see it in your eyes
Don’t forget that I know exactly who you are
And I can see the real you
And I can see through your disguise
Oh I know who you are
Who you were
And who you always will be
And baby, oh
You can fool around but you can’t fool me, no

Can’t fool me, no

But I can see through you
And I can see it in your eyes
Don’t forget that I know exactly who you are
I can see the real you
I can see through all your lies
Oh I know who you are
Who you were
And who you always will be
And I know who you are
Who you were
And who I wanted you to be
And I hate who you are
Who you were
And who you turned out to be
And baby
You can fool around but you can’t fool
Me
