Biography

Melissa Vidito is a singer / songwriter based in Nova Scotia, Canada.

Settling for something more ordinary Melissa put her dream of making a CD in the garbage. It all went wrong and quickly. So, she packed up her things and moved back to the Annapolis Valley where it all started a long time before. There was a life there and things were simple. No producers, no managers no stage lights. She quit playing. That was it. Disappointed and tired of working 3 jobs, Melissa picked up a guitar again only to make paying the bills easier. Soon, it was obvious that music was a life she wanted and she found it easy again to capture the uniqueness and charm of everyday life in her music.

In 2007 it was time to attempt making a CD again. This time Melissa would do it on her own. Currently a friend allows her to use a home studio on afternoons and weekends and through hard work and long hours Melissa has written, arranged and is editing and producing her upcoming EP 'Things I can't forget'. This time she's taking no chances to get what she wants.

"With such an eloquent voice and unique song writing style it will only be a matter of time before everyone knows her name. Melissa is one to watch for" Josh Eye (Real Industry Records)

Lyrics

Watch This

Written By: Melissa Vidito

she pulled up beside you
standing at the bar
lit up a cigarette
and asked you how you are
it must have been your sad eyes
she must have read the signs
girls like that have a talent for reading between the lines

the music screams so loudly
that you talked cheek to cheek
talkin' and smilin', smilin' and laughin
a lovers hide and seek
pray it was the bright lights
playing tricks on me
I swear i just saw her hand travelin' toward your knee

and i can't watch this happen
cause i can't let you go
I can't watch this happen
but I can't move

not five feet behind you
feet glued to the floor
eyes stuck on the both of you
when they should be on the door
to the world around me
I must look a mess
the world just started spinning
when her lips touched your neck

(chorus)

You'll say that it meant nothing things aren't as they appear
One hand was in your pocket
the other on your beer
And maybe you will leave this place by yourself tonight
You're still not leaving here with me and none of it feels right

and I can't watch this happen
cuz I can't let you go
I can't watch this happen
But I have to let you go
I have to let you go
I have to let you go

Wait

Written By: Melissa Vidito

empty cups of coffee litter the ground
people laughing scattered all around me as I wait
the sky is getting lower
dark clouds on the rise
and when they open
they'll scatter like flies
still I wait

cause you told me that you wanted
a better life
you told me that you needed to do something right

so I wait (time stands still while I wait)
so I wait (time stands still while I wait)

counting the seconds
and cars that pass by
red, blue and green color your goodbye
as I wait
I know that you're not coming
I know where you are
my eyes keep searching
for the headlights of your car
yeah, I wait

for a sun that never rises
a night that never comes
a promise to be kept
a lie to come undone

so I wait (time stands still while I wait)
so I wait (time stands still while I wait)

cause you told me that you wanted a better life
you told me that you needed to do something right

so I wait (time stands still while I wait)
so I wait (time stands still while I wait)
so I wait (time stands still while I wait)

Off the Ground

Written By: Melissa Vidito

open up your eyes
and you will see my heart
hoping praying, ready waiting
to take in all you are
will it make you scared
will you make me cry
all this waiting and debating
leaves me trembling

stand still as stone
as it gets chipped away
stayed by the voice
that gives the play by play
all that is up is down
words of the others
the ghosts of the lovers
that never got off the ground

tell me all your truths
and I will tell you mine
the softness in your voice
it sends shivers racing down my spine
if I took your hand
would you hold on to mine
if I offered mine up first
would you lay yours on the line

(chorus)

if I said the words
would you turn and run
would the thought of catching me make you come undone

(chorus)

words of the others
ghosts of the lovers
that never got off the ground
never got off the ground x2
