about

Alexandria Maillot Vancouver, British Columbia

Alexandria’s debut EP Just Another Girl was a project spanning several years, which finally came to fruition in the spring of 2012. Since then, the swoon-y alt-bedroom pop artist has been cultivating new sounds from her East Van digs. Alexandria's forthcoming sophomore release, Time, due out June 2016, marks an epoch of her personal evolution, and the sonic entity born from undiluted chaos. ... more

Track Name: Sunday Sara
Been in bed since 4pm
Waiting for your call
Decided to search the web
When I came across her wall

Sara was an old friend
Or so I thought til I dug deep
She’s been in town since Sunday
Explains why you’ve been busy all week

I hear it
The silence

It’s like an eclipse
Too tempting to resist
Til it stares back
And you’re left with blurry vision

Been awake since 4am
Feeling kind of faint
Sunday’s brunette forecast brought brown-eyed betrayal

Sara likes to be chased
She’ll drink you up til you start to drown
It feels good today
But once she caught, will she stick around?

I doubt it
My darling

It’s like an eclipse
Too tempting to resist
Til it stares back
And you’re left with blurry vision
An apocalypse
Was wasted on her lips
Hell rested in the switch
Of Sara’s indecision

(Ooh, like a knife
Cut a hole in me, I’m bleeding, bleeding)
(Ooh, like a knife
You got a hold on me, I’m bleeding, bleeding)
Track Name: Other Line
Courage called
She said she wants you back home
Killing thoughts don’t clear a mind
Candy ain’t so sweet
When covered in dirt
Yet you crave a cold demise

Hurry
Tie the knot
It’s coming undone
Like your twisted alibi
Sugar ain’t so sweet
When covered in blood
But you don’t use forks
Only knives

Once a kid
Now a cold-blood killer

Counting down
You hear your heartbeat echo
Courage calling one more time
You hope she’ll leave a message after the tone
You’re tied up on the other line

Once a kid
Now a cold-blood killer
Once a lover
Now a heartless hunter
Track Name: Smitten
Remember that day
I was sitting on the train
In the back of the cart
Next to cheap printed art
You walked right across
And faced the other way
But when our eyes met
I slowly fell apart

Small talk
Little conversation
Lead to irregular heart palpitations

Ooh, I was sweetly bitten
Left completely smitten by you

Your eyes were so kind
I had a lot on my mind
Which I quickly forgot
Once we started to talk
We both missed our stop
Justifying the long walk
It was better to be late
Than to go another day without

Small talk
Little conversation
Leading to a million heart palpitations

Ooh, I was sweetly bitten
Left completely smitten by you
Track Name: Did You Want to Tell Me Something?
There’s no words to say
My mouth is closed
Can’t hear you anyway
Through all the nonsense you possess

I’ve been feeling great
Since you’ve been gone
Don’t know how to explain
How much your words left me a mess

I’m through with you
Can’t take no more
No more lies from you
And I know
This may seem hard to digest
So, before I go

Did you want to tell me something?
Track Name: Time (On Your Own)
Today
I promised myself I wouldn’t talk to you
I’d pretend, if I saw your face
I’d act like a stranger was in your place

Today
I finally got dressed after a couple days
Took a breath
Cleared my heath
Closed my eyes
Stepped outside and said,

“Come on now
Why you so afraid to be alone?
All you need is some time on your own”
Track Name: The Floor
They said
“Make a change for the better”
But they don’t know
How the days will weather
When the past left me
A half-ton memory
Weighing down my pockets
I can’t clean my pockets

Oh you let me down
I fell as you reached for the door
Now sanctuary
Lies in the cracks in the floor

You once
Knew my inflections in the way I talk
I once knew your intentions
But they turned out flawed
Time and time again
Your name escapes my mouth
I can’t help myself

Oh you let me down
I fell as you reached for the door
Now sanctuary
Lies in the cracks in the floor
Oh you shut us down
Put up the tape and locked me out
Now I’m rubble on floor
Track Name: Lonely Soul
You say I'm a lonely one
A lost cause
Too far gone

Say I'm living inside my head
No thought of consequence

You say I'm a lonely one
Hats off to the lonely ones
Gives us incentive to
Corrupt the uncorrupted like you

But I'm feeling
So good inside
And it's a'healing
My lonely mind
Why you feeling
So justified
Telling my lonely soul to let go

You say I'm a lonely one
I like being a lonely one
No bridges to maintain
No strings attached to a night of shame

But I'm feeling
So good inside
And it's a'healing
My lonely mind
Why you feeling
So justified
Telling my lonely soul to let go

It's like fire spreading through your veins
Skin skating on razor blades
Cheap tricks in a hand grenade
The weaker they are
The better to prey

But I'm feeling
So good inside
And it's a'healing
My lonely mind
Why you feeling
So justified
Telling my lonely soul to let go
Track Name: Sans
I don’t mind pretending everything’s fine
If that’s the way you like it
There’s something deep inside
It can’t let go
But it’s really good at hiding

Today I’m breathing deep
So to speak
Yesterday I bit right through my cheek
But it doesn’t reach the hole you left

How can I move on
When it’s late at night
And I catch your vision
It’s hard to be alone
When the bed is halved
And we used to call this home
We used to call this home
You used to come home

I’m hanging off the front porch
Searching for a witness
Looking for you
I’m reaching for the back door
Hoping for a shadow
Something from you

Today I’m breathing deep
So to speak
Yesterday I bit right through my cheek
But it’s nothing like the hole you left

I’m screaming on the front porch
Begging for a witness
Aching for you
I’m running for the back door
Praying for a shadow
Anything from you
All I see is darkness
All I hear is silence
All I feel is sickness
All I want is
All I know is
All I knew was
You
Track Name: Never Stop
I’ll make mistakes
I know I will
But that don’t mean
You can count on me

I’ll try my best
To be someone
But that don’t mean
You can count on me

Tell me if you wanna
Love me for who I am
Tell me if you wanna
Love me

I will catch you
Never let you fall
Keep you standing tall
I will hold you
Never let you go
You’re my heart and soul
I will keep
Somewhere safe and sound
I’ll always be around
I will love
Love you forever
And never stop

I’ll speak my mind
Sometimes too loud
But that don’t mean
You can count on me

I’ll reach for the stars
And if I crash
I hope you’ll be right next to me
Please
Count on me
