Pick Up the Phone

3 am, held your head in my hands
I was your safest place to rest
Stumbling through, baby never had a clue
My life was cleaning up your mess
You don’t owe me shit
But I thought you’d never quit
You know I thought I’d always be your quickest fix But your nights are better spent
All tangled up in him
I never knew how beat I was until you dipped

I don’t pick up my phone when I know it’s you
I should just cut you off, but it’s so hard to do
We could just cruise, but for what, we been running low on love,
You don’t pick up the phone, I know you know it too

Harder hits made me your addiction
My pillow was home to all your tears
Drunk on white wine, disco in the daylight
Your failures shushed all my deepest fears
You don’t owe me shit
But I thought you’d never quit me
You know I thought I’d always be your quickest fix But your nights are better spent
All tangled up in him
I never knew how beat I was until you dipped
And now
I don’t pick up my phone when I know it’s you
I should just cut you off, but it’s so hard to do
We could just cruise, but for what, we been running low on love,
You don’t pick up the phone, I know you know it too

[Lyrics]


SO DONE!

I’ve been on a roll forever
All alone, I found my centre
I could use a bad time
I could get away from myself

Tell my ex I’ll call him later
Or tell him that I dialed in error
I need some attention
Need to fall for somebody else

I fall to the right side always
And it either kills or bores me
No one keeps me in check,
yeah I might just go left,
might as well unimpress

So far from any problems
Could just explore my options
I’m so done living for someone else

Esas caritas
En la distancia
No despedida
Sin dar la vuelta

I'm so done living for someone else!

[Lyrics]

Biography:

Oleyada is a bilingual (English/Spanish) indie-pop artist who makes music out of her bedroom in Toronto, Canada. Oleyada typically covers up darker lyrical themes with sweet and upbeat sounds. She takes inspiration from current pop artists like Ariana Grande and Carly Rae Jepsen, as well as indie acts like The Marias and Rex Orange County.

Oleyada has performed at Vaughan Canada Day and Sauble Beach's Endless Summer Party with The Free Label, and Youth Day and the Akashic Rekords Showcase. She has also appeared on the Eric Alper show on Sirius XM and the What She Said radio show. Oleyada previously released music under a different name with Akashic Rekords (with distribution through ILSGroup/UNIVERSAL) but split from them in 2019 to pursue music independently.

Oleyada released her first independent single “Pick Up the Phone” (May 9), a bright and poppy diss track to your worst best-friends. "Pick Up the Phone" was a semi-finalist in Unsigned Only and earned her a spot in the 2020 Canadian Songwriter Challenge and the RBC Launchpad Music Entrepreneurship program. She was also featured on The Free Label’s single and music video “Up In Flames” (April 22) and "Toys" (Oct 7). Oleyada also featured on “Antifreeze”, from the Free Label’s mixtape “Quarantoonz” (April 7). Oleyada’s first EP is currently in the works.
