Extended Player #1: Haunted

Extended Player is a zine series featuring Meredith’s work as a songwriter. Most of the demos you’ll find are live demos created with a single mic in her bedroom studio. This was done on purpose – to focus on the lyrics, plus moments of emotion and storytelling in each song. Think of these as Liner Notes, but interactive.

The first issue Extended Player features “Haunted,” a lullaby for grownups, about growing up. Meredith plans to release two long playing albums in this format, with music coming soon.

Verse 1
Wonder what I miss the most
’bout the girl I used to be
She haunts me like a vengeful ghost
that no one else can see

It’s hard to be haunted
by things you always wanted
and dreams you know won’t last

These fears cannot be real
these feelings that I feel
or are they just ghosts from the past

You are so much more than
what’s been done to you

Verse 2
Takes everything I have now
to keep the ghost at bay
There are days I don’t know how
to make her go away
