about

Leila Neverland British Columbia

She may have spent the last eight years raising kids but she spent the last 18 years performing her original music, and she owns every show, and her humongous voice is just that: Huge.

Introducing heavy neo-soul artist Leila Neverland who homeschools her two children by day, and shares memorable live performances by night, full of hysterical and poignant storytelling.

Track Name: (The Forest Came) Before Us
#1 Before Us

Someone's trying to trick us.
Someone's trying to take the forests.
I don't think they remember what's still here,
what came before us.
And I think it’s time we sing in chorus:
Stop!
Stop, now.

Oh, wouldn't it be neat
if the sound of our feet
could take away all greed?
Oh, wouldn't it be neat?

Stop!
Stop, now.

Wouldn't it be nice
if we could all just sit
peacefully?

Come on, do it together
else you might get caught.
Come on, do it together.
It’s all we’ve got.
Come on and do it together.

Someone's trying to trick us.
Someone's trying to take the forests.
I don't think they remember what's still here,
what came before us.
And I think it’s time we sing in chorus:
Stop!
Stop, now.
Track Name: Edge
#2 Edge

When you’re standin’ in front of her face,
she's got tears in her eyes and you just don't know what to do.
Please, I, I beg of you:
Please be true.

Standing on the edge you might find,
that you're losing your mind.
Don't know what to say.
Don't know what to think.
Just remember to blink.

When you're standing on the ocean deep
and you're wondering what she's got in her keep.
I, I, I beg of you:
Please learn how to swim before you leap.

Standing on the edge you might find,
that you're losing your mind.
Don't know what to say.
Don't know what to think.
Just remember to blink.

Operatic Interlude.

Standing on the edge you might find,
that you're losing your mind.
Don't know what to say.
Don't know what to think.
Just remember to blink.
Track Name: Start Again + Bonus Track
#3 Start Again

I think it’s time we start again.
We've lost everything.
I hope one day soon,
we'll all remember,
the cycles of the moon.

I think it’s time we start over.
We're not where we're s'posed to be.
We have come so far from the day
we planted the first seed.

Doesn't matter where you're from.
Doesn't matter what you've done.
Doesn't matter from where you've run.
Just as long as you remember we all are one.

I call on the spirit of the bear:
I know your strength can take us there.
I call on the spirit of the eagle:
Go on and teach me how to fly.

Doesn't matter where you're from.
No, it doesn't matter what you've done.
Doesn't matter from where you've run from.
As long as you remember we all are one.

Doesn't matter where you're from.
No, it doesn't matter what you've done.
Doesn't matter from where you've run from.
As long as you remember we all are one.

I think it’s time we start over.
We're not where we're s'posed to be.
We've strayed so far, from the day we planted,
the first seed.
