Various Artists – Almost Paradise

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , , , at 10:27 pm by LynxLee

This post is from a movie called “Footloose” (yeah, you’ve heard the song Footloose from Kenny Loggins everytime in Mix FM.. I know.. haha) starring Kevin Bacon. Even though Footloose is the theme song, but this song is the Theme Love Song for it.

“Almost Paradise,” such a wonderful classic 80′s song. The slow love power ballad duet between Loverboy’s Mike Reno and Heart’s Ann Wilson, with its organ-like synths and pounding drums, is very well the first drop of rain that propelled Heart to its 80′s success. I notice that Keith Olsen, who produced Passionworks, produced this song as well. And Loverboy would do a similar style power ballad, “Heaven In Your Eyes” for Top Gun.”
- quoting an amazon.com reviewer, Daniel J. Hamlow (Farmington, NM USA)

Mike Reno (of “Loverboy”) and Ann Wilson (of “Heart”) sings the original in 1984. The song is then later remaked by Eric Carmen & Merry Clayton in 1989. Eric Carmen co-written this song with Dean Pitchford. For more information about this song, go to Almost Paradise SongFacts.

This posting is for lia, once again.. for requesting.

I’ve added almost every single type of video I can find, since I couldn’t find any with the movie sequences. There’s 4 types.. I’ve labelled them below the video. The last video will be the one video I’d like the most, since I refer to the lyrics at the same time. Enjoy..

Oh, how could I have known
That all my life I only needed you?

It seems like perfect love’s so hard to find
I’d almost given up
You must have read my mind

And all these dreams I saved for a rainy day
They’re finally coming true
I’ll share them all with you

I thought that dreams belonged to other men
‘Cause each time I got close
They’d fall apart again

I feared my heart would beat in secrecy
I faced the nights alone
Oh, how could I have known
That all my life I only needed you?

Oh
Almost paradise
We’re knockin’ on heaven’s door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more?
I swear that I can see forever in your eyes
Paradise

It seems like perfect love’s so hard to find
I’d almost given up
You must have read my mind

And all these dreams I saved for a rainy day
They’re finally coming true
I’ll share them all with you
‘Cause now we hold the future in our hand

Oh
Almost paradise
We’re knockin’ on heaven’s door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more?
I swear that I can see forever in your eyes
Paradise

And in your arms salvation’s not so far away
It’s getting closer
Closer every day

Almost paradise
We’re knockin’ on heaven’s door
Almost paradise
How could we ask for more?
I swear that I can see forever in your eyes
Paradise

Paradise

Paradise

Meat Loaf – I’d Lie For You (And That’s The Truth)

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 10:50 pm by LynxLee

From the album Welcome to the Neighborhood. The song, which peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1995, was composed by Diane Warren. This overproduced (to say the least), Indiana Jones-influenced video was directed by Howard Greenhalgh. Although the video features model Dana Patrick — who “sings” the duet at the end of the earlier, hugely successful video for “I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)” — and the opening shots establish it as a sequel of sorts to that video, it actually doesn’t seem to have much of a connection. However, it may well set a record for the most explosions and elaborate stunts ever in a video.
Celebrity Cameo: ubiquitous character actor Xander Berkeley (probably best known from the first two seasons of 24) as the Nazi-ish “bad guy”.

I’d never tell you one lie, I’d never let you down
I’d never leave, I’d be the one who’d always be around
Baby give me a chance

I’d pull the sun out from the sky to light your darkest night
I wouldn’t let one drop of rain fall down into your life
Put your heart in my hands

Believe me baby, I could never do you wrong
And I would never paint your world blue
And if sometimes it seems I must have lost mind
I might be crazy but I’m crazy about you…

I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Do anything you want me to
I’d even sell my soul for you
I’d do it all for you
If you’d just believe in me

Just take a look in my eyes, you’ll see a love that’s blind
Just take a hold of my hand, I’ll take you to paradise
Ain’t a star that’s too far

Your every wish will be a wish that I will make come true
And if you want the moon I swear I’ll bring it down for you
Let me into your heart

Believe me baby got your name carved on my soul
You’re the only one that I’ll give it to
Go let ‘em say that I’m I fool to act this way
‘Cause if I’m crazy, I’m just crazy ’bout you…

I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Move mountains if you want me to
I’d walk across the fire for you
I’d walk on the wild for you
If you’d just believe in me…

And you will never see a day I’ll ever break your heart
You’ll see the sky fall down before it ever gets that far
I’ll show you heaven every second that you’re in my arms
Baby I’m crazy, but I’m crazy about you!

[Instrumental bridge]

I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Move mountains if you want me to
I’d walk across the fire for you
I’d walk on the wild for you
If you’d just believe in me

I’d walk across the wild for you
Move mountains if you want me to
I’d walk across the fire for you
Do anything you asked me to

I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Do anything you asked me to
I’d even sell my soul for you
I’d do it all for you
If you’d just believe in me

I’d lie for you and that’s the truth
Move mountains if you want me to
I’d walk across the fire for you
I’d walk on the wild for you
If you’d just believe in me…

I’d lie for you and thats the truth

John Mayer – Waiting On The World To Change

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 10:43 pm by LynxLee

We keep on waiting.. Waiting for the world to change.. It’s True.. There’s pretty much nothing we could do for certain things in life. In the future, we might be able to lead the world. That’s when there will be a change. John Mayer brings a cool relaxing soothing song with care in mind. Ya gotta love the groove to the music.


“Now we see everything that’s going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don’t have the means
To rise above and beat it”

“Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want”

“It’s not that we don’t care,
We just know that the fight ain’t fair”

Me and all my friends
We’re all misunderstood
They say we stand for nothing and
There’s no way we ever could

Now we see everything that’s going wrong
With the world and those who lead it
We just feel like we don’t have the means
To rise above and beat it

So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It’s hard to beat the system
When we’re standing at a distance
So we keep waiting
Waiting on the world to change

Now if we had the power
To bring our neighbors home from war
They would have never missed a Christmas
No more ribbons on their door
And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want

That’s why we’re waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

It’s not that we don’t care,
We just know that the fight ain’t fair
So we keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

And we’re still waiting
Waiting on the world to change
We keep on waiting waiting on the world to change
One day our generation
Is gonna rule the population
So we keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

We keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change

Teddy Geiger – These Walls

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 10:42 pm by LynxLee

To me, this song has a kind of mix between John Mayer & Gavin Degraw. Cool song, really.. =P

“Cause everybody tries to put some love on the line”
“And even when I’m scared I have to try to fly”
“I gotta step outside these walls”

I can’t believe what is in front of me
The water’s rising up to my knees
And I can’t figure out
How the hell I wound up here
Everything seemed okay when I started out the other day
Then the rain came pouring down
And now I’m drowning in my fears
And as I watch the setting sun
I wonder if I’m the only one

[Chorus]
Cause everybody tries to put some love on the line
And everybody feels a broken heart sometimes
And even when I’m scared I have to try to fly
Sometimes I fall
But I’ve seen it done before
I gotta step outside these walls

I’ve got no master plan to help me out
Or make me stand up for
All the things that I really want
You had me too afraid to ask
And as I look ahead of me
I try and pray for sanity

[chorus]

These walls can’t be my haven
These walls can’t keep me safe here
And now I guess I gotta let them down

Cause everybody tries to put some love on the line
And everybody feels a broken heart sometimes, yeah
Even when I’m scared I have to try to fly
Sometimes I fall
But I’ve seen it done before

I got to break out…
I got to break out…
I got to step outside these walls
Love outside these walls
I feel my heart breaking
But its a brand new day
I’m going down
I’m stepping out
I’m stepping outside
These walls
(I’ve seen it done before.. I’m walking on, I’ll walk it off, oh I’m moving on)

Belove

Posted in Personal Lyrics tagged at 8:34 pm by LynxLee

I remember your smile,
I remember your laughter,
The way you brush your hair towards your right,
You look so adorable.

How you smile when you cry,
Even cry when you’re tickled,
All the actions that I miss them so much,
Can’t help but reminiscing you.

There are times when you will tickle me,
With your hair all over my face,
How I love the feeling of fragility,
When you’re with me I lose my mind.

It’s like heaven inside,
It’s like heaven no matter what we do,
I can’t see anything more appealing
than just be right by you.

Don’t you remember the dark times in the Highlands?
Wasn’t it fate that made us commute?
There was such weakness, such strong powerful sickness
A feeling of joy, a feeling of surrender, short call it- love

There are times when you will tickle me,
With your fingers you drive me wild
How we used to laugh for hours,
We’re wild but I’m tamed by you, so mild.

It’s so amusing how life turns out to be,
when the music is playing right behind me,
A few seconds ago, we were all in love,
A blink of an eye & there goes all I’ve been thinking of.

I just can’t forget that feeling,
I know it’s how I feel for so long,
Can’t surrender if not willing,
It’s just like these words in this song.

It’s (Charmin’) Alright

Posted in Personal Lyrics tagged at 11:55 pm by LynxLee

Dear honey, it’s been a long time,
& it’s funny, how you’ve gone and seemed fine,
Just thinking, how we used to be,
so happy, well, at least to me;

I know you have a heart for me somewhere,
& I’ve been keeping my heart so true,
I’ve been waiting for a second chance,
& been knowing it won’t be long,

I remember the nights, we spend all awake,
I can hardly remember what we said,
The feeling of you, is oh so strong,
& it’s growing in me,
it’s growing in me,

Oh darling, can’t you see, how it should be,
everything is wrong, but it’ll be alright,
Dear baby, now is not the time, but it’s gonna be fine,
Time will be yours & mine;

The webcam sessions, the kissing in the daylight,
the missing hugs & the missing holds,
I know it’s overdue & that’s why you left,
but honey.. I’m only human..
like you are a woman;

Come back to me
Come hold my hand
Come be my bride
Forever will we stand
As two lovers
With hearts to mend
It’ll be alright
It’ll be alright

My temper’s gone & it gone too late,
& the love I have won’t waste on wait,
I remember what you say “it’s all done & said”,
no matter how it goes, I’ll leave it all to fate,

I love you so
I love you, I do

“From Now On”, “From This Moment On”;
It’ll be alright
It’ll be alright

The webcam sessions, the kissing in the daylight,
the missing hugs & the missing holds,
I know it’s overdue & that’s why you left,
but honey.. I’m only human..
like you are a woman;

I’ve to let you go,
I wasn’t alright,
Oh I love you so,
I’m losing the fight,

Now you’re with a man,
Yes, I heard it right,
You’re both more than a friend,
I guess you’re in love, real tight,
Well, sadly.. you’re happy, without me..

I guess “It’s Alright”…

Various Artists – We Are The World

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 1:23 am by LynxLee

Everyone knows the song “We Are The World”, right? The one sang by Michael Jackson? Well, it was awarded a grammy for the song of the year in 1986. Apparently, Lionel Richie was a co-writer (alongside Michael Jackson) & Quincy Jones was the producer. From there, there came so many collaborations & versions… but I enjoyed the asian version the most. I will include a lot of types of videos in this post but the lyrics of a simple english version only. The Chinese Lyrics? Just look at the MTV, it’s a subtitle. Enjoy!

Oh yeah, click here to see who sang for the 80s USA Africa.

Updated:

Recorded on February 1st, 2010, in the same studio as the original 25 years earlier (Henson Recording Studios, formerly A&M Recording Studios) “We Are The World 25 For Haiti”, in which Jones and Richie serve as executive producers and producers, was created in collaboration with executive producers Wyclef Jean, Randy Phillips and Peter Tortorici; producers Humberto Gattica and RedOne; and co-producers Rickey Minor, Mervyn Warren and Patti Austin to benefit the Haitian earthquake relief efforts and the rebuilding of Haiti.

Academy Award-winning writer-director Paul Haggis (Crash, Million Dollar Baby), whose own personal efforts as well as those of Artists for Peace and Justice have already saved countless lives in Haiti, filmed the private recording session to create the accompanying video and behind-the-scenes production, and serves as Film Director and as an Executive Producer with Jones, Richie, Jean, Phillips and Tortorici.

The 25th Anniversary recording features over 80 artists and performers. The recording of We Are The World 25 For Haiti embodied the same enthusiasm, sense of purpose and generosity as the original recording 25 years ago. Every one of the artists who participated, regardless of genre or generation, walked into the room with their hearts and souls completely open to coming together to help the people of Haiti.

There comes a time when we need a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
Oh, and it’s time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all

We can’t go on pretending day by day
That someone, somehow will soon make a change
We’re all a part of God’s great big family
And the truth – you know love is all we need

( CHORUS )
We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
so let’s start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

Well, send’em you your heart
So they know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us
By turning stone to bread
And so we all must lend a helping hand

( REPEAT CHORUS )

When you’re down and out
There seems no hope at all
But if you just believe
There’s no way we can fall
Well, well, well, let’s realize
That one change can only come
When we stand together as one

( REPEAT CHORUS AND FADE )

Fleetwood Mac – Beautiful Child

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged at 12:27 am by LynxLee

Beautiful child
Beautiful child
You are a beautiful child
And I am a fool once more

You fell in love when I was only ten
The years disappeared
Much has gone by since then
I bite my lip, can you send me away
You touch
I have no choice
I have to stay
I had to stay

Sleepless child
There is so little time
Your eyes say yes
But you don’t say yes
I wish that you were mine

You say it will be harder in the morning
I wait for you to say, just go
Your hands, held mine so few hours
And I’m not a child anymore
I’m not a child anymore

I’m not a child anymore
I’m tall enough
To reach for the stars
I’m old enough
To love you from afar
To trusting… yes?
But then women usually are

I’m not a child anymore
No, I’m not a child, oh no
Tall enough to reach for the stars
I will do
As I’m told
Even if I never hold you again
I never hold you again

Nothing Hurtful Left to Say

Posted in Personal Lyrics tagged at 10:52 pm by LynxLee

I’m fine alone after my previous relationship
I’m glad I’m trying to move on
One day, this girl just came into picture
She was appealing to me

I guess I felt a crush & kept calling her
I thought it’s a start of love
But now I know it’s just a “fling”, in her own words,
I guess I expected too much

So after one day, I called on her
So after that day, she just let me go
So what can I say when I just did what I’m told?
I just had to hold on to what I know

She’s no longer interested in me
I’m no longer wanting to try harder
So I stop pursuing in hopes I’m better
& that’s when she messaged me

“Oh now it’s just a rainy day?”
“Oh now you’re better off alone?”
“So didn’t you want me from the start?”
“Then why didn’t you..”
“control yourself then”

*Chorus*
I’m not gonna waste my time on you,
The way I feel was completely out of view
When you gave me silence
While I was trying to..
I needn’t say anything more

Here, let me explain,
I did what I can,
I kept trying when you were out with those guys
What did you expected of me?

I was hurt inside but now I’m stronger;
you were the vice-versa of me then,
I don’t care what you think but I didn’t just play around
You’re afraid of commitment, and now you’re just hurtin’ me
hurtin’ me
Right from the start; you were hurting me

Well, can’t you see? I was begging for you
When I’m no longer needing you,
that’s when you want me too

It’s a typical world of girls
It’s a typical way of life
You just call me when you need me
& now I’m “that way”
Stop playing those mind games on me

To say that I’m ok.. ok.. I was fine ’till u hurt me
Now I am better.. better.. just stop the pain of words

*Chorus*
I’m not gonna waste my time on you,
The way I feel was completely out of view
When you gave me silence
While I was trying to..
I needn’t say anything more

Here I feel terrible for making you feel that way
But now you make it like I don’t have a care or say
Don’t care at all…?
Drop a message, drop me a call; I’ll reply you in a heartbeat
But when I do that, you’re busy for so long
“Don’t care at ALL”?

I don’t need to feel this way
I didn’t need to feel “that way” from the start
I guess now I know you & I feel you
This time; I’m SO disappointed
There’s nothing left to say

Tony Rich Project – Nobody Knows

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged at 7:15 pm by LynxLee

I can say it so clearly but you’re nowhere around

Like a clown I put on a show
The pain is real even if nobody knows

I carry a smile when I’m broken in two
And I’m nobody without someone like you

I’m screamin’ at night if I thought you’d hear me

But like a jigsaw puzzle it’s been torn all apart

A million words couldn’t say just how I feel
A million years from now
You know I’ll be lovin’ you still

Wish I’d told her how I feel
Maybe she’d be here right now
But instead

I pretended I’m glad you went away
These four walls are closin’ more every day
And I’m dying inside
And nobody knows it but me
Like a clown I put on a show
The pain is real even if nobody knows
And I’m cryin’ inside
And nobody knows it but me

Why didn’t I say the things I needed to say
How could I let my angel get away
Now my world is just a tumbling down
I can say it so clearly but you’re nowhere around

(Chorus)
The nights are lonely, the days are so sad
And I just keep thinking about the love that we had
And I’m missing you
And nobody knows it but me

I carry a smile when I’m broken in two
And I’m nobody without someone like you
I’m trembling inside
And nobody knows it but me
I lie awake it’s a quarter past 3
I’m screamin’ at night if I thought you’d hear me
Yeah my heart is calling you
And nobody knows it but me

How blue can I get
You could ask my heart
But like a jigsaw puzzle it’s been torn all apart
A million words couldn’t say just how I feel
A million years from now
You know I’ll be lovin’ you still

(Chorus)

Tomorrow mornin’ I’m hitting the dusty road
Gonna find you wherever, ever you might go
I’m gonna unload my heart and hope you come back to me
Said when the nights are lonely

(Chorus) x3
