HOLLYWOOD STAR

Update - January 17, 2019: FIVE YEARS! I cannot believe the passage of time. For me, December 2013 was the holiday from hell and the dark, dreary days of winter that followed soon found me spiraling out of control. The next few weeks were spent mostly isolated and balled up on my couch trying to find some light at the end of the tunnel.

On the 18th day of the New Year the Bergen Record delivered an unwanted headline that saddened yet shocked me out of my malaise. I soon set out to begin a recording career that had been put off for decades. I hope you will support any and all of my tracks - including this one inspired by Madison Holleran - that will validate this decision.

The tragic suicide of collegiate athlete Madison Holleran moved me so much that I needed to tell her story. In doing so I began concentrating on completing my own race!!! We hope this track strikes a chord with you. Please consider picking up an MP3 as that will help us record many more songs in the future - thanks!

LYRICS (Words and Music by Rich Lynch)

Verse:
Maddy, Maddy, Hollywood Star
You should've just hollered back, girl
Maddy, Maddy, Hollywood Star
You could've just run from your troubles in this world

Verse:
You got out of those blocks so fast, yeah
Yeah, you jumped to the lead
You hit the ground running but it wouldn't last
The last time you jumped did you bleed?
Well, the last time you jumped did you bleed?

Verse:
Jesus Christ you had the most perfect life
And now really is a time to be strong
I can understand your pain and strife
A mad dash to the finish won't take too long
No, a mad dash to the finish won't take too long

Bridge:
What ya doing sister
in that city of love?
You made a pretty picture
and a scene below and above
Lovely liberated belle
set free like a dove
you're broken and departed
and we're all thinking of
You!

Verse:
Maddy, Maddy, Hollywood Star
You should've just hollered back, girl
Maddy, Maddy, Hollywood Star
You could've just run from your troubles in this world

Well, you could've just run
No, you couldn't just run
You could have just run and run
No, you couldn't just run
