about

Maria Lua London, UK

Maria Lua is a folk-inspired singer, songwriter, musician and performer. As the daughter of hippy musicians she was encouraged from a young age to sing her heart out and write music that sprung from her soul. This developed into her own unique style of melodic pop folk, where strong influences of The Cranberries, Enya, La Roux and Joan Baez shine through. ... more

Track Name: Jump
Jump by Maria Lua

If I jump I my fall
But I’ll never know if I can fly at all
So I’ll either jump and fly
Or I’ll let my life pass me by

And though I’ve seen what can happen
If you haven’t no heart in this
So I’ll either slump and cry
Or I’ll let my life fly
Oh Flyyy

Chorus
See I’ve been given a chance to make it
And as God’s my witness
I’m gonna take it
Oh take it awayyy

If I jump I my fall
But I’ll never know if I can fly at all
So I’ll either jump and fly
Or I’ll let my life pass me by
Oh pass me by…

And though I’ve seen what can happen
If you haven’t no heart in this
So I’ll either slump and cry
Or I’ll let my life fly
Oh Flyyy

Let’s fly away
Baby lets fly away
Let’s fly away…


Chorus
See I’ve been given a chance to make it
And as God’s my witness
I’m gonna take it
Oh take it awayyy
Let’s fly awayyyy


So I did jump and fly
And now I know my life won’t pass me by
I’ll just watch my soul grow
And see how it will never die
Never die

So if you jump you may fall
But you’ll never know if you can fly at all

Either jump and fly
Oh pass you by, pass you by, pass you by
Don’t let you’re life pass you by!


Chorus
See what happens from just a little chance?
As God was my witness I grew
From a seed
Into a plant…
Track Name: Fly
Fly by Maria Lua

I will fly with the sky
And flow with the ocean
And swim with the fish
Just live my life like this

Until my life
Becomes death
Then I’ll finally get to see
What’s on the other side
Of the mirror…

Let me feel with my heart
And know with my soul
Let’s forget where we are
Just let ourselves go!

And feel with our hearts
Know with our souls
Forget where we are
Just let ourselves go

Until the sun goes down
And the hot earth becomes cool
I’ll lay my head down
And probably dream of you…

Well let’s feel with our hearts
Know with our souls
Forget where we are
Just let ourselves go

And let’s burn with the sun
And glow with the moon
And swim with the fish
Just live our lives
Like this…

Until our lives
Become death
Then we’ll finally get to see
What’s on the other side
Of the mirror…
Track Name: Love Me Madly
Love Me Madly by Maria Lua

How can you love me madly?
When I walk away?
When I’ve got nothing to give?

How can you love me madly?
When I walk away?
When I’ve got nothing to give?

Chorus
I will always love you
Until the end
Cos you are my friend
And I know that you do
Have something to give
Cos I’ve seen you give it before.


How can you love me madly?
When I walk away?
When I’ve got nothing to say?


Chorus
I will always love you
Until the end
Cos you are my friend.
And I know that you do
Have something to say
You’ve gotta just say it!


Change
The rain falls down
On my head
Oh please calm down
This feeling of dread

But we’ve got nothing to fear
But fear itself
Oh help me to wash away
This fear of fear
And nothing else

No we’ve got nothing to fear
But fear itself
Come on now help me to wash away
This fear of fear
And nothing else!

How can you love me madly ?
Oh how can you love me madlyyyyyy ?

(guitar solo)


How can you love me madly?
When I walk away?
When I’ve got nothing to say?

Chorus
I will always love you
Until the end
Cos you are my friend!
Track Name: Warm Beating Heart
Warm Beating Heart by Maria Lua

The streets are wild
Don’t get out your car
And if you do, don’t go far

‘Cause wild beasts, they roam our streets
And alley ways
Hard cold steel
Cuts through
Soft warm flesh


Chorus
But aaah
When the daylight comes
And the Summer too
And I look into you
I see there lies
A Warm Beating Heart
And I realise
It was there from the start
A Warm Beating Heart
Warm Beating Heart
Warm Beating Heart

The streets are wild
Don’t leave your house
Lock your windows
Lock your doors

Cos the cold and damp
They seep, under your door
They creep, into your life
They seek, to still your dreams…


Chorus
But aaah
When the daylight comes
And the Summer too
And I look into you
I see there lies
A Warm Beating Heart
And I realise
It was there from the start
A Warm Beating Heart
Warm Beating Heart
Warm Beating Heart
Warm Beating Heart
Warm Beating Heart
Warm Beating Heartttt


Change
My little one (my little one)
Where are you now? (where are you now?)
My little one (my little one)
Where are you now? (where are you now?)
I’ll wait for you
Outside the gate
My little one (my little one)
I’ll wait for you (how long it takes)
My little one (my Ariel)

Chorus
Cause aaaah when I see you smile
And I hold your hand
And I look into you
I see there lies
My Warm Beating Heart
And I realise
We were never apart
Warm Beating Heart
My little one
Warm Beating Heart

Ooooooooooooh
Aaaaaaaah
Ooooooooh
Aaaaaaaah
Ooooh My Warm Beating Heart…
