Mary Desiree

BandBluesSinger/Songwriter

My music comes straight from the heart. My lyrics usually come from my poetry or rants that I write when I feel upset. My music is raw (as some of my listeners have said) and full of empowering emotions. My music is passionate and it can relate to alot of people.

Biography

Mary Desiree (Diaz) became a mom and a wife at the age of twenty. But, this hasn't stopped her from pursuing her dreams of spreading her experiences with people, life & love through song and poetry. She is proud of everything she has done in her life and for expressing herself in a way that only certain people can do; through song and spoken word.

It all started way back to when she was a toddler. She was always surrounded by music, in any way, shape or form. So, it was no surprise that she would eventually grow a fondness to playing the piano, guitar and any other instruments she could get her hands on. As years passed, she has also grown to pick up singing (as well as acting and dancing during her middle school and high school years). She was always passionate and appreciative towards music. Her original work derives from every day things that take place in her life, to the experiences she experienced in the past. Her single, "Better", is a song about heartbreak, being humiliated, misunderstood and being talked badly about. Which is something any one can relate to. And how all you can do is believe you're better than those who have nothing better to do, than try to bring others down, to make themselves feel better.

With the support and help from her husband, friends and acquaintances, she feels very motivated to keep pursuing her dreams. So, please take a few minutes and listen to her music and perhaps come out to see her in some of her shows. It would mean a lot to her.

Lyrics

The Way I Am

Written By: Mary Desiree

Verse One:

How does it feel to be me
How do I deal with these things
You ought to know it ain't easy, baby
But I know I'm sure, definitely

Chorus:

Everywhere I go
People wanna know
Where I'm going and who I'm with
And if I'm sleeping with him
But no. no, no
Darling, no
I'm all by myself
So don't go talking 'bout this nonsense and live your life
Coz your chance with me is now
Shot to hell

La-dee-dee-dah

Verse Two:

Maybe I need to be rude
Maybe I need to be cruel
Coz I hate being walked on like some kind of fool
Maybe I should be a bitch
Coz I'm done with your shit
Maybe I'm through with all the things you do
And I just need to be free (oh)

Chorus 2:

Everywhere I go
People wanna know
Where I'm going and who I'm with
And if I'm sleeping with him
But no. no, no
Darling, no
I'm all by myself
So don't go talking 'bout this nonsense and live your life
Instead of talkin' 'bout the way

BRIDGE:

(The way I am) Does it make you wanna cringe
(The way I am) Like I'm some kind of an itch
(The way I am) I don't think I can resist
(The way I am) You don't wanna meet this bitch
The way I am (la-dee-dee-dah)
I am (la-dee-dee-dah)
Oh no, no

REPEAT CHORUS 2

Better

Written By: Mary Desiree

Verse One:
There's a reason why
I don't wanna cry
In front of you
Can't you understand
I don't wanna open
My heart once again

Refrain One:
Coz it's always done me wrong
And never any good
And there's never any song
To stand for what I stood

CHORUS:
So break my heart
See what you can find
I've been broken many times
And I'm not gonna cry
You see me whole
Open my soul
I am here to show you
All the things that you don't know

Verse Two:
Been an outcast all my life
And I don't know why
They're treatin' me this way
Maybe I can understand
Maybe they've been broken
And they don't know how to fix themselves

Refrain Two:
Maybe they don't know what to do with their time
Maybe they don't know what o do with their lives
Maybe they don't know any better (4x)
Oh

Bridge:
They don't know better (3x)
No better
I am *better (2x)
Than you will ever be*
(*repeat 3x)

Break

CHORUS:
So break my heart
See what you can find
I've been broken many times
And I'm not gonna cry
You see me whole
Open my soul
I am here to show you
All the things that you don't know

END CHORUS:
I don't care what you do
I don't care what you say
I'm just tired of walking,
Walking away
Anything that you think
Doesn't mean anything
I'll do what I do
And this song I will sing
I'll sing (2x)
This song for you
No, you won't ever bring me down.

Oh no, they don't know any better
Oh, I feel better
