For her first single, Molly Kate worked with fellow Portland artists Amanda Breese, and Anna Tivel to bring together a sound of sweet waiting on A Girl Who Waits. Clear-cutting vocals, sweet lilting violin, and whimsical piano and backing vocals weave themselves into a dreamy, nostalgic tune.


A Girl Who Waits

I wished on a star
I didn't get very far
Shoes and ships and sealing wax
They all melt away
You told me you were coming back someday
And I am a girl who waits

Raindrops in my tiny blue teacups
Waiting for the bright yellow sun to come
But I live in Oregon
And I am a girl who waits

Climbing that old Spruce in my backyard
See if I can see every single white star
Falling back out it is not very hard
And I am a girl who waits

Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning
No you didn't you didn't give me any warning
Now my captive heart it's in mourning
No more childish games it's just pouring

Lay down in the dirt so I stop all the spinning
Instead the earth moves faster
The lines of light are thinning
Hold tight to the grass for I am madly grinning
And I am a girl who waits
'Cause I am a girl who waits

I was born and raised in Salem, Oregon. Many (if not all) of my songs reflect my Pacific Northwest upbringings. Everything here inspires me; from the coast to the mountains I find beauty and song in all of it. Thank you for listening.
