What you need to do to enter the "Walls" Cover Contest for a chance to win $500.

  • Record yourself singing my song "Walls" from my newly released EP Losing My Mind & have fun with it! Do it solo, or if you have roommate(s), get them involved and this might be the beginning of your new band! Feel free to transpose or change the chords and show off your own individual artistic style! It doesn't have to be the full song to be a valid entry and can just be your favorite part or a verse & chorus for example. You don't need flashy production and it can be just as simple as recording yourself on your phone!

  • Post it on your Instagram wall or IGTV

  • Tag me so I can see your submission @HeatherEdgley

  • Use the hashtag #WallsCoverContest


That's it! The Contest period is open September 10th, 2020 and ends Monday, September 28th, 2020 at 11:59 PM PST.

The Grand Prize Winner will be notified via Instagram DM by September 30th, 2020.


Two semi-finalists will be chosen and will win merch prizes including a copy of my EP, a handmade Heather Edgley t-shirt, stickers, a button, and a hand written note from me.

Verse: A min, C, E minor, F

Bridge: F, A min, C, G

(Verse I)

 Water dancing on window panes


Quietly listening to the rain

Cuddling chrysalism 

Cause you’re not here


Rhythmic synchronicity 

Of rain matching my tears


Cause you are on the other side

And you can’t be saved 

Though I’ve tried


We’re building walls 

Instead of bridges

Might as well grow wings

To scale your defenses


Cause the barriers grow

The quicksand thickens

We’re staying in place

There’s no connection


(Verse II)

And I crave opia

Don’t look away 

Just open up


Like a flower in spring

A flower in bloom


How do you think 

they feel the sun?


Cause if you stay closed

You cannot grow

And I don’t think 

You want to be alone



But you are on the other side

And you can’t be saved 

Though I’ve tried


We’re building walls 

Instead of bridges

Might as well grow wings

To scale your defenses


Cause the barriers grow

The quicksand thickens

We both have to try

If we’re gonna fix this



And we agreed 

I wouldn’t write more bout you


But I have seen

As time moves by 

You still haven’t moved


And I’ve been patient 

And I have loved you

But you’re more afraid of feeling 

Than what you’d lose


And it seems you don’t believe

There’s anything at stake


(Chorus/End Verse)

Cause you are on the other side

And you are getting left behind


You’re building walls 

Instead of bridges

And I’d grow wings

But you’d shoot me down


Cause you’re more afraid of living

Than of hiding

And you don’t want to fix this




You’re building walls 

Instead of bridges

And I can’t keep 

Trying to fix this


Maybe one day you’ll regret

The paralyzing fear

That let me slip away
