 Calgary, Alberta, CAN
BandPopSinger/Songwriter

Rachael Schroeder has been writing songs since age nine, and is an emerging singer/songwriter with a maturity beyond her years. Her debut EP includes five original songs, written over a span of two years, about life events from the perspective of a 10 and 11-year-old.

Biography

Rachael is a twelve year old who loves music. She started voice when she was six, moved onto a vocal coach and started writing her own songs when she was nine.

Her songs catch you off guard, you don't expect those kind of lyrics or that kind of emotion coming from someone so young.

Whether it is her own songs, or covers, Rachael lives and breathes music. Influenced by a broad range of music from Queen to The Beatles, from Beethoven to Adam Lambert, Rachael is almost always humming or singing.

Often when she is writing a song, she will go into her room for a few hours, and the song will emerge from her mind fully formed: verses, chorus, bridge - all charted and ready to be worked on with her vocal coach, Brian Farrell (www.brianfarrell.ca). Brian describes Rachael as "a wise soul living as a 12 year old girl. She writes and sings with the honesty of youth - she wears her music close to her heart. Audiences relate well to her youthful honesty."

Lyrics

I'm Not That Girl

Written By: Rachael Schroeder

VERSE 1:
I'm not that girl who gets all the attention
I'm not that girl who everyone wants to be with
I'm not that girl and never will be

VERSE 2:
I'm not that girl who everybody greets when she comes
I'm not that girl who has a million friends
I'm not that girl who's Miss Popularity
I'm not that girl and never will be

CHORUS:
Somedays I wish I was that girl who gets all the attention
I'd like to be that girl for a day a week a month even a year
It would be so sweet to be her her her
I'm not that that girl and never will be

VERSE 3:
I'm that girl who nobody says hello to
I'm that girl who only has 15 minutes of fame
I'm that girl who's just plain boring
I'm that girl and always will be

CHORUS:
Somedays I wish I was that girl who got all the attention
I'd like to be that girl for a day a week a month even a year
It would be so sweet to be her her her
I'm not that that girl and never will be

BRIDGE:
Oh how I wish this wasn't reality
If only this wasn't happening
Please someone wake me up from this nightmare

CHORUS:
Somedays I wish I was that girl who got all the attention
I'd like to be that girl for a day a week a month even a year
It would be so sweet to be her her her
I'm not that that girl and never will be

VERSE 4:
I'm not that girl who gets all the attention
I'm not that girl who everyone wants to be with
I'm not that girl but I'm okay with just me

Don't Forget Me

VERSE 1:
Ooh Why does the sun still shine
This time of sorrow, ooh why

The laughter we share, ooh why

CHORUS
So don't forget me, while you're roaming the world
In eighty days, ooh, plea-eeeaaa-ease

VERSE 2:
Ooh why do the years go by
We need more time, oh why
Ooh why did you come around
When you could have been on top, ooh why

CHORUS:
So don't forget me, while you're roaming the world
In eighty days, ooh, plea-eeeaaa-ease

CODA:
Don't forget me, I won't forget you
Could this be farewell? Good bye-ye-ye

White House

Written By: Rachael Schroeder

VERSE 1:
There's a girl in a world, who just isn't happy
Lot's of clothes and a big house, doesn't have enough
Uses green to buy love, but it never works out

And still this day, she sits alone
In her big white house
In her big white house
In her big white house

VERSE 2:
She buys lots of things, twice ev'ry day
Wouldn't even think to give it away
Lots of people want to be just like her

CHORUS:
And still this day, she sits alone
In her big white house
In her big white house
In her big white house

BRIDGE:
Just can't enjoy the simple things of life
Just can't be happy with what you've got
Just can't let go and show that you care

CHORUS:
And still this day, she sits alone
In her big white house
In her big white house
In her big white house

CHORUS:
And still this day, she sits alone
In her big white house
In her big white house
In her big white house
In her big white house
In her big white house

The Mirror

I wake up
And look in the mirror
The girl staring back
Ain't what people see

Trying to change
Myself in my thoughts

Just like every girl
Just like every woman

I try to
Find something new
To cover up my
List of things I hate

BRIDGE:
I'm innocently
Trying to change
Myself in my thoughts

CHORUS:
Just like every girl
Just like every woman

The mirror, the mirror is the enemy of the femal population

Just like every girl
Just like every woman

Invisible

Written By: Rachael Schroeder

VERSE 1:
Don't know what to do
Sometimes I wanna cry
I see red when I feel blue
I hate my life right now

CHORUS:
So why do you keep ignoring me
You don't even speak a word
I want to know, what's going on, right now
Cuz I feel like I'm invisible to you

Bridge:
Oooh

VERSE 2:
You don't even know
That I'm hurting a lot right now
I did ev'rything for you
And got nothing in return

CHORUS:
So why do you keep ignoring me
You don't even speak a word
I want to know, what's going on, right now
Cuz I feel like I'm invisible to you

Bridge:
Oooh

CHORUS:
So why do you keep ignoring me
You don't even speak a word
I want to know, what's going on, right now
Cuz I feel like I'm invisible

The Sixth of March

Written By: Rachael Schroeder

VERSE 1:
I woke up today, thinking it was a good day
I went to the movies, and got some popcorn
But little did I know, that I was going to find the truth

CHORUS:
Because today is the worst day of my life so far
And ev'ry year I'll be dreading the sixth of March

BRIDGE:
And now, I hate, I hate, this world
Because, that snake, that snake, tricked them
Guess hat, I know, a piece, you proud?
Please, please, please, please

VERSE 2:
You seem different, now it's revealed
It's like I was blind for 12 golden years
I wish I could see nothing for years

CHORUS:
Because today is the worst day of my life so far
And ev'ry year I'll be dreading the sixth of March

VERSE 3:
It's twelve thirty-six, it's Sunday morn
You'll be going to try to make me go
My eyes are dry, cuz it rained hard today

Guess what, I know a piece. Are you proud?
