Hear Me

HEAR ME
KAT LEONARD MARCH 2011 ©

V1
Nothing’s going right today
The whole world is against me
Regret nips my heels
and dread lies in wait for me
Joy is a moving target
My gut is cramped in sorrow
the same thing happened yesterday
and I don’t trust tomorrow

CH
Hear me
I just can’t stand today
Speak to me
Convince me that it’s okay

Hear me
Help me see tomorrow
Speak to me
Spare some hope for me to borrow

V2
This was not the plan
this can’t be all I am
Sleeping on a fragile dream
I feel like a melting snowman
Little amuses me
There’s nothing I want to try
I’m too tired to live
and terrified to die

[CH]

BRIDGE
Little spark in me-WAKE
Little spark in me-RISE
Little spark in me-LIVE

CH
Hear me/I just can’t stand today
Speak to me/Convince me that it’s okay
Convince me that it’s okay/It’s okay

[Lyrics]


Jockstrap

JOCKSTRAP
© KAT LEONARD

I saw your face and knew my destiny
All of my life what I’ve wanted to be
In a flash the answer was clear
My bigger purpose, the why I was here

The same force that urges flowers to bloom And creates the strong suction to vacuum a really big room
That’s the force that draws me to you
The law that ensures 1 and 1 equal 2 [CHORUS:]
I wanna be Johnny Depp’s jockstrap
I will protect you ‘cause life can get rough
I wanna be Johnny Depp’s backpack
I wanna ride you and hold all your stuff
I wanna be Johnny Depp’s fannypack
I ‘ll softly cling to you and bounce to the front
I wanna be Johnny Depp’s jockstrap I will protect you and hold all your stuff So take this plea as my resume
I’m an overjoyed, enthusiastic lover for hire Won’t call in sick and I'll never tire
I’ll take my package now, no need to retire I’m conscientious and well-focused too
The only thing on my to-do list will be you And when the day is over and you think I’m through,
I’ll turn to you for more to do [REPEAT CHORUS] I want to dance in a generic pop breakdown
it’s the best way to express all my love
(breakdown dance) [REPEAT CHORUS] (Jockstrap)- What I need to be
(Jockstrap)- To fill my destiny
(Jockstrap)-I wanna cup you
(Jockstrap)-uhhhhh
(Jockstrap)-I’ll cup you real good
(Jockstrap)-I’ve been practicing on myself
(Jockstrap)-Yeah

[Lyrics]


Like A Bike

LIKE A BIKE
© KAT LEONARD

V1
Falling in love is like riding a bike
Lit like a spark, your heart ignites
The faster you go, the more your circulation spikes
Your loins are on fire, your muscles fight
I’d ride for miles for one sweet kiss
Finish a marathon for a moment of bliss
Given just one chance, I would not miss
I’d ride you like a bike, like this:

CH
Swing a leg over
Brace myself and balance
Raise my seat high
Gear up and glide
Navigate the bumps
Pedal like a banshee
Feel the breeze on my face
and enjoy the ride

V2
Maintenance is crucial in bikes and love
Gotta keep tuned-up, oiled and pumped
Pressure is key, a good hand on the brake
Lose the training wheels and raise the stakes
Don’t just spin your wheels, go somewhere!
Pop-a-wheelie and soar through the air
Look, ma, no hands
I do it over and over and over, like this:

[CH[

(spoken) And when I get my technique down I’ll take it up a notch, increase the pace, you know, go at the rate of our hearts beating as one unit. That’s right. I said unit.


[CH-FAST]
(Panting) That can take a lot out of a girl, and I’m not in great shape. So to avoid a heart attack I may have to decrease the pace. But certainly not the enthusiasm. To something I could do all day.

[CH-SLOW]

(Music stops)
Oh, that’s it?
I was just getting into it!

Not Us

NOT US
© KAT LEONARD

Intro: This is an anti-love song.

V1
Funny how a loved one’s laugh can make you want to cry
The greatest impact of love happens after it dies
The brighter the flame you hold the blinder your beloved’s eyes
The more unlikely success is the harder you try

Chorus:
Happy people, loving each other
kissing and squeezing over and over
Laughing, loving, living my dream
I can’t believe that it’s not us

So close to love my need grows stronger
My dream is mighty but my heart beats softer
A dashing prince rescues a princess
And I can’t believe that it’s not us

And it sucks

V2
Funny, one of the first things we learn to say is goodbye
Sometimes you wish reality was the lie
40 and 20 blackbirds coaching my butterflies
All the different meanings in a sigh (sigh)

[CHORUS]

BRIDGE:

It’s not us
Oh, I wish it was us
Why can’t it be us?
It sucks ass that it’s not us
It would kick ass if it was us
It’d make me sweat if it was us
Come on, let’s make it us
Give me one good reason besides your wife that it’s not us

[CHORUS]

What’s wrong with you?
Can’t you see I’m perfect for you?
I’d die for you.
I’d lick you up off a dirty sidewalk.
Stupid.

Biography:

Kat Leonard has a degree in Science and a diploma in TV/Film Production. A graduate of The Second City Conservatory, she is also a singer/songwriter.

Kat Leonard combines the pizzazz of Liza Minnelli, the passion of k.d. lang, the wackiness of Cyndi Lauper and the sass of Madonna. Madcap and profound, Kat is a quirky performance pop dynamo whose music oscillates unpredictably between heartfelt and hilarious, leaving you with the drunken joy of a sugar rush.

Kat & The Mp3 live shows are multimedia cabaret extravaganzas that are packed with video, dance, tears and guffaws. She performs standup, sings and dances with kneepads on, and often interacts with video as much as audience members.

Kat & The MP3’s debut CD, A Depper Kind Of Love, was released June 9, 2011 in conjunction with Johnny Depp’s birthday and has appeared at theatre festivals including The Toronto Fringe Festival. A Depper Kind of Love, inspired by Johnny Depp, is a musical comedy about loving Johnny Depp and love gone awry.

Kat is also Artistic Director of Let's Make Good Productions and the Wonder Women series and WonderFest festivals spreading empowerment through art. www.WonderWomenWorld.tumblr.com
