The Sam Willows – Robot

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 1:32 pm by LynxLee

Sometimes when you listen to songs about depression or hope, you get the sad feeling of doom of sorts. Then there are times when you feel comforted. This track may just be what you need for a while.

EMPHASIS

Can I walk any steadier
Than I do right now
If you ask if I’m ready, sure
I was told just how

Cause you gotta be like the others, don’t run for cover
Don’t be all soft, be strong like your brother
Why do I bother, be a good son and good daughter

We don’t cry for nothin’
We were all build for something
Broken bones still you’re running
I know you’re breaking down

If you were a robot, I’d change your parts
If you were a movie, I’d change the plot
But you’re not a robot, you’ve got a heart
Though it feels heavy, that’s where we’ll start

So I’ll sit with you until you fall asleep
Because the world is way too loud
Stay close to you if that is what you need
You say the world is way too loud, I’ll shut it up

Tough crowd, knocked down, and you feel the dirt
What you gonna do
It feels etched on your skin it hurts
Like a bad tattoo

Then you gotta breathe till it’s over, rest till you’re sober
You were far out now you’re getting closer
Come rain what follows, after tonight comes tomorrow

We don’t cry for nothin’
We were all build for something
Broken bones still you’re running
I know you’re breaking down

So I’ll sit with you until you fall asleep
Because the world is way too loud
Stay close to you if that is what you need
You say the world is way too loud, I’ll shut it up

If you were a robot, I’d change your parts
If you were a movie, I’d change the plot
But you’re not a robot, you’ve got a heart
And though it feels heavy, that’s where we’ll start

NF – Real

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 9:57 pm by LynxLee

WOO!

I relate to this. I get so frustrated when people don’t understand the emotional state I get in when situations happen. I’ve been told to keep quiet way too often, I’ve been told to be careful with my words, not to aim so high, not to be too much of a stand out, not to overdo things, every time I want to do something big – I get shrunken back down and told to be humble and calm down. Some people want me to be less this and more that, I never get it. It’s clear – I’ll just avoid you. I’ve changed too many times for no good reason and no good has ever come from it.

An interesting thing I realized this morning as I was listening to Jim Carrey’s commencement speech at Maharishi University of Management – The Need for Acceptance will make you Invisible. At around the third minute (3:00), I just came to a realization that if I were to be thinking in a pessimistic mind, it’s also because of my ego. I mean, throughout college – I work (in mindset) so hard to ensure that I’m not egotistical, cocky, arrogant but I seems like when we set our mind to think “They’re better than me” – it’s also the work of an ego. What a revelation of thinking. I guess it’s a matter of balance.

NF’s tracks has given me a release of mind from the typical angry mind of Eminem, or the other songs posted in this blog with anger. His words aren’t twisted, they’re real life and there’s no curses or any weird lyrics. I mean, I like his words – being real, not weak or too much of a certainty.

I admit, I DO HAVE a problem with people who always thinks they are right. They don’t second guess themselves, no apologies, won’t admit mistakes and always try to control me when they don’t have any empathy or sense of how we feel in that moment. I’m easily influenced and easily flexible; but I mean, I’m very emphatic. I can feel most emotions around me and I navigate my life through as I sense them. Perhaps that’s my curse, and also my gift.

When someone is angry at me, I navigate away from them. When someone is disappointed, I try my level best to ensure I don’t again. I’m very emotional, I do whatever I can to protect my family. I make sure I be the best Son/Brother/Husband/Father/Friend I can. It never make sense to me to just keep quiet and do nothing – i.e. inactive.

Call me crazy; and maybe I need Therapy – but don’t call me dumb, ignorant or fake. I’m just being Real.

I get so frustrated, take a look at what I created
Time is wasting and I ain’t waiting

I’m a doctor with no job
Me, I don’t have no patience
I keep pacing back and forth, I keep racing
You ain’t never been in my book and I got a problem with it, why? ‘Cause you acting like you read my pages
I wreck these stages, real talk, better give me space ’cause I am chasing
Something they told me that I won’t make it, I’m not famous, I’m just Nathan

And I wonder how the world gon’ take this
They might hate it, but you don’t know anything about me, you know that don’t mean I’m changing
‘Cause you know I’m real with it, don’t care if you feeling it
I’m feeling it, you don’t like it then deal with it, and if God ain’t real, real isn’t
You still wonder why I existed, I exist in the world that’s real different
And what you gon’ be when you grow up, Nate? I doubt they will get it

My life is a mess, better watch your step when you step in it
Some of this brain is off limits I’m off in a world that you don’t get ’cause you ain’t ever been in it
In 10 minutes, I still couldn’t explain what’s inside my brain, don’t mess with it
I’ve invested a lot of me inside these lines, I’m just protecting ’em

Everybody wanna hear the real version of life then don’t get so sensitive
When I say something a little bit raw
I jot my thoughts and they call it negative
You wanna know where my heart is?
I stand out ’cause I wear my garbage

I work my hardest and every time I look into the mirror, don’t forget about where I started

Tell me what am I doing here?
If I’m not being real, mmm

Yeah, real music
Yeah
Yo, ya just get in that, you get in that head space, ya know

Somebody get the body bags, working with beats and
Put the MCs in ’em, season ’em, put ’em on a beat with me, then I’m eating ’em
Get away from the table, you rappers ain’t hungry enough, you rappers ain’t hungry like us
They talk about me like I’m here, they talk about you like you was

That nurse came into my room, she told me I’m sick in the head
I’m in hip-hop’s hospital bed with a pad and a pen and a brace on my neck
They told me that I’m never leaving.
Why? I am as ill as it gets
Any rapper that say that they runnin’ the game, I’mma come in they session and cut off they legs, woo

Strap a grenade to my head, pull out the pin
My music is mind blowin’, ain’t nobody do it like I do it
You ain’t never been on my level, I got a problem in the way
To keep ’em talking and acting like everybody gonna get up in a sleep with your eyes open
You wanna know what I noticed?
I look around at my fan base—it ain’t ready
That last album was heavy, that last album was gritty
How you gon’ match that? Just let me
Do what I do best
You’re better off playing Russian roulette
Than comin’ in a booth with me ’cause I get
A little bit intense, I’m like, “Who’s next?”
Y’all better watch it, take a look at where the clock is
It’s my time, this ladder of music that I climbed, I took the machete, the game isn’t ready
Them rappers, they coming up on me, I cut off the ladder, and I told ’em, “bye-bye”
What you lookin’ for? A high-five?
Nice try.

Do not believe everything that you read on the Internet
I do not know who your dentist is, but he should clean out your mouth
Don’t call me a sell-out, that’s something I’ve never been
I’ve been through hell all my life though
But I know where heaven is
Father forgive me, for I am a sinner
But you gave me music as medicine

And nobody want a problem when they get in my zone better leave me be
I’m a mean MC, better feed me rappers or feed me beats, ah, feed me both of ’em
They like “Nate, what’s it like to be famous?”
Um, I’ll let you know if I make it
I wonder what life would be like if I didn’t stick out my neck
200 dollars inside of my bank account, woo, I was living on that
I need some money to pay for my rent, I need some money to pay for my gas
I’m not complaining, I’m just being honest, I promise that I will not beg for respect

I get so frustrated, take a look at what I created
Time is wasting and I ain’t waiting
I’m a doctor with no job
Me, I don’t have no patience
I keep pacing back and forth, I keep racing
You ain’t never been in my book and I got a problem with it, why? ‘Cause you acting like you read my pages
I wreck these stages, real talk, better give me space ’cause I am chasing
Something they told me that I won’t make it, I’m not famous, I’m just Nathan

And I wonder how the world gon’ take this
They might hate it, but you don’t know anything about me, you know that don’t mean I’m changing
‘Cause you know I’m real with it, don’t care if you feeling it
I’m feeling it, you don’t like it then deal with it, and if God ain’t real, real isn’t
You still wonder why I existed, I exist in the world that’s real different
And what you gon’ be when you grow up, Nate? I doubt they will get it

My life is a mess, better watch your step when you step in it
Some of this brain is off limits I’m off in a world that you don’t get ’cause you ain’t ever been in it
In 10 minutes, I still couldn’t explain what’s inside my brain, don’t mess with it
I’ve invested a lot of me inside these lines, I’m just protecting ’em

Everybody wanna hear the real version of life then don’t get so sensitive
When I say something a little bit raw

You wanna know where my heart is?
I stand out ’cause I wear my garbage
I work my hardest and every time I look into the mirror, don’t forget about where I started

Tell me what am I doing?
Tell me what am I doing?
Tell me what am I, what am I doing?
Mmm
Tell me what am I doing?
I say what am I doing?
Tell me what am I doing here?
If I’m not being real, mmm

Zara Larsson – Don’t Let Me Be Yours

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged at 9:05 am by LynxLee

You know everybody makes mistakes
Don’t let me be yours
You know everybody makes mistakes
Don’t let me be yours, no, don’t let me be

[Verse 1]
I may know myself, but I realize that I can be led astray
I know, I know that you’re bad for my health
But I don’t care, I want you anyway
Ayy, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]
Boy, you think that you know me
Oh, but you can’t see my lonely heart
Things look different in the mornin’, oh
That’s when we find out who we are
Would you still want me?
Without no makeup on my face?
Without alcohol in your veins?
Oh, would you, baby?
Would you still love me?
With all the promises you made
Would you still mean the words you say?
Oh, would you, baby?
Yeah

[Chorus]
You know everybody makes mistakes, mmm
Don’t let me be yours
You know everybody makes mistakes
Don’t let me be yours, no, don’t let me be

[Verse 2]
We may look like hell when it’s 6 AM
But it’s heaven in this bed
I know, I know, I know that you can tell
That we’re more than friends
And it’s not just in our heads
Yeah, yeah

[Pre-Chorus]
Boy, you think that you know me
Oh, but you can’t see my lonely heart
Things look different in the mornin’, yeah
That’s when we find out who we are
Would you still want me?
Without no makeup on my face?
Without alcohol in your veins?
Oh, would, you, baby?
Would you still love me?
With all the promises you made
Would you still mean the words you say?
Oh, would you, baby?
Yeah

[Chorus]
You know everybody makes mistakes
Don’t let me be yours
You know everybody makes mistakes
Don’t let me be yours, no, don’t let me be

[Breakdown]
Boy, you think that you know me
Oh, but you can’t see my lonely heart
Things look different in the mornin’, ah
That’s when we find out who we are

[Chorus]
You know everybody makes mistakes, mmm
Don’t let me be yours
You know everybody makes mistakes
Don’t let me be yours, no, don’t let me be
You know everybody makes mistakes, mmm
Don’t let me be yours
You know everybody makes mistakes
Don’t let me be yours, no, don’t let me be

Sara Bareilles – Bright Lights and Cityscapes

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , at 9:48 am by LynxLee

Sometimes it takes the hard times to really define you – to reveal the inner you. I’ve gone through a post I’ve made back in 2007 and I think to myself, “Wow, what a dumbass”. The thing is, I really felt that way back then and that was my outlet.. THIS was my outlet. I had a girlfriend that was younger, aggressive and well, wild back then – I honestly did not know what to expect, but I knew one thing.. it was an experience I wouldn’t forget. I knew I never wanted to be like that ever again – so I changed. Even more when I became a husband, a father. Sure, I still sway once in a while – but never get out of that awareness into how you are and how you are treating others.

Few days ago I fell sick, today – with a bunch of chemicals (medicine) in my body. This type of music is what I completely need. The healing type, the ones that slow down your mind and help slowly heal yourself. I need this to recover, and I’ll give time. Sure, I feel awesome when I’m fully healthy and fit and all – but when I’m down and sick; that’s the time to calm down and reflect and think – heal.

She is bright lights and cityscapes
And white lies and cavalcades
And she’ll take all you ever have
But I’m gonna love you
You say maybe it’ll last this time
But I’m gonna love you
You never have to ask
I’m gonna love you
‘Til you start looking back
I’m gonna love you
So right
I wouldn’t need a second chance

Hold my breath and I’ll count to ten
I’m the paper and you’re the pen
You fill me in and you are permanent
And you’ll leave me to dry
I’m the writer and she’s the muse
And the one that you always choose
She will falter and gift her blame
And it starts all over again
Again again again

She is bright lights and cityscapes
And white lies and cavalcades
And she’ll take all you ever have
But I’m gonna love you
You say maybe it’ll last this time
But I’m gonna love you
You never have to ask
I’m gonna love you
‘Til you start looking back
I’m gonna love you
So right
I wouldn’t need a second chance

Shield your eyes from the truth at hand
Tell me why it’ll be good again
All those demons are closing in
And I don’t want you to burn
Nevermind what I said before
I don’t want any less anymore
You are carbon and I am flame
I will rise and you will
Remain

For bright lights and cityscapes
And landslides and masquerades
And she’ll take all you ever have
But I’m gonna love you
You say, “Maybe it’ll last this time”
But I’m gonna love you
You never have to ask
I’m gonna love you
‘Til you start looking back
I wouldn’t need a second chance
I wouldn’t need a second chance
I wouldn’t need a second chance
I wouldn’t need a second chance

Logic ft. Alessia Cara & Khalid – 1-800-273-8255

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , , at 2:28 pm by LynxLee

I’m pretty sure a lot of people here in Malaysia never heard of Logic, but since I’m such a huge Alessia Cara fan; I heard this track and fell in love with it. I’m pretty sure most people could relate, especially when things get hard – but often times we don’t come into awareness of it.

Emotions, being “fake” and all that – it’s not gonna help your life. Live life transparently and Love Living.

I don’t think I’ll ever know how Chester Bennington or Robin Williams felt when they ended their life, but these are artists who I simply can’t get enough of their work. In a way, I’m worried if I like them so much, would I eventually get to a state of mind like theirs?

The thing is though – they’re living the fast lane. Especially in this day of age when everything flies by so quickly and expected of you. I do appreciate having the slow but manageable life here, but I’m sure it’ll get tougher – I guess that’s why we build ourselves up and keep that toughness in us all.

It’s the very first breath
When your head’s been drowning underwater
And it’s the lightness in the air
When you’re there
Chest to chest with a lover
It’s holding on, though the road’s long
And seeing light in the darkest things
And when you stare at your reflection
Finally knowing who it is
I know that you’ll thank God you did


[Pre-Chorus: Logic]
I’ve been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I’m out of my mind
It feel like my life ain’t mine
Who can relate?
I’ve been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I’m out of my mind
It feel like my life ain’t mine

[Chorus: Logic]
I don’t wanna be alive
I don’t wanna be alive
I just wanna die today
I just wanna die
I don’t wanna be alive
I don’t wanna be alive
I just wanna die
And let me tell you why

[Verse 1: Logic]
All this other shit I’m talkin’ ’bout they think they know it
I’ve been praying for somebody to save me, no one’s heroic
And my life don’t even matter
I know it I know it I know I’m hurting deep down but can’t show it
I never had a place to call my own
I never had a home
Ain’t nobody callin’ my phone
Where you been? Where you at? What’s on your mind?
They say every life precious but nobody care about mine

[Pre-Chorus: Logic]
I’ve been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I’m out of my mind
It feel like my life ain’t mine
Who can relate?
I’ve been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I’m out of my mind
It feel like my life ain’t mine

[Chorus: Logic]
I want you to be alive
I want you to be alive
You don’t gotta die today
You don’t gotta die
I want you to be alive
I want you to be alive
You don’t gotta die
Now lemme tell you why

[Verse 2: Alessia Cara]
It’s the very first breath
When your head’s been drowning underwater
And it’s the lightness in the air
When you’re there
Chest to chest with a lover
It’s holding on, though the road’s long
And seeing light in the darkest things
And when you stare at your reflection
Finally knowing who it is
I know that you’ll thank God you did

[Verse 3: Logic]
I know where you been, where you are, where you goin’
I know you’re the reason I believe in life
What’s the day without a little night?
I’m just tryna shed a little light
It can be hard
It can be so hard
But you gotta live right now
You got everything to give right now

[Pre-Chorus: Logic]
I’ve been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I’m out of my mind
It feel like my life ain’t mine
Who can relate?
I’ve been on the low
I been taking my time
I feel like I’m out of my mind
It feel like my life ain’t mine

[Chorus: Logic]
I finally wanna be alive
I finally wanna be alive
I don’t wanna die today
I don’t wanna die
I finally wanna be alive
I finally wanna be alive
I don’t wanna die
I don’t wanna die

[Outro: Khalid]
Pain don’t hurt the same, I know
The lane I travel feels alone
But I’m moving ’til my legs give out
And I see my tears melt in the snow
But I don’t wanna cry
I don’t wanna cry anymore
I wanna feel alive
I don’t even wanna die anymore
Oh I don’t wanna
I don’t wanna
I don’t even wanna die anymore

Linkin Park ft. Kiiara – Heavy

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged , at 2:16 pm by LynxLee

There’s comfort in the Panic. RIP Chester.

I don’t like my mind right now
Stacking up problems that are so unnecessary
Wish that I could slow things down
I wanna let go but there’s comfort in the panic
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything’s about me
Yeah, I drive myself crazy
‘Cause I can’t escape the gravity


[Verse 1: Chester Bennington]
I don’t like my mind right now
Stacking up problems that are so unnecessary
Wish that I could slow things down
I wanna let go but there’s comfort in the panic
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything’s about me
Yeah, I drive myself crazy
‘Cause I can’t escape the gravity

[Chorus: Chester Bennington & Kiiara]
I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on
So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?

[Verse 2: Kiiara]
You say that I’m paranoid
But I’m pretty sure the world is out to get me
It’s not like I make the choice
To let my mind stay so fucking messy
I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning ’round me just the same
I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning ’round me just the same

[Chorus: Kiiara]
I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on
So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?

[Bridge: Chester Bennington & Kiiara]
I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning ’round me just the same
I know I’m not the center of the universe
But you keep spinning ’round me just the same
And I drive myself crazy
Thinking everything’s about me

[Chorus: Chester Bennington & Kiiara]
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on
So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Why is everything so heavy?
Why is everything so heavy?

Alessia Cara – I’m Yours

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged , at 1:51 pm by LynxLee

Yeah, I know.. I know.. I’m annoying, this song is annoying – seriously, have you given thought to how annoying you could be as well labeling me or my posts as annoying too? Here’s the thing, I grown up somewhat an outcast.

I don’t have close friends who would be there for me when I die, but I have a great family and I believe I’ve built a good family for myself as well alongside my wife. It’s been a tough time growing up, but I don’t think I could’ve done any better looking at how my life turned out so far.

I do enjoy a good negative song, and I’m guessing you could include this track as a negative one; because despite it sounding so happy or positive, it really is a song of resistance. The resistance of the emotion of love. I know how it feels like and let me tell you, those girls who think this way – instead of that usual fairytale princessy type, are the ones who will be there for you throughout.

I could be wrong, but never completely and I guess that’s probably the best part.

It’s been a long while since I’ve posted – I haven’t had much sad emotions lately, and not that I’m going through it now.. but I felt like I needed to write something here seeing that it’s been a long time since the last negative post got posted.Some nerve you have
To break up my lonely
And tell me you want me
How dare you march into my heart
Oh how rude of you
To ruin my miserable
And tell me I’m beautiful
Cause I wasn’t looking for love no
Nobody asked you to get me attached to you
In fact you tricked me
And I wasn’t trying to fall in love but boy you pushed me
So all that I’m asking
Is that you handle me with caution
Cause I don’t give myself often
But I guess I’ll try today

I’m mad at you
For being so cute
And changing my mood
And altering my rude
What’s wrong with you
You make me sick for being so perfect
What did I do
What can I do, ohh
And I wasn’t trying
To melt this heart of iron
But the way you hold me makes the old me pass away
And I would be lying
If I said I wasn’t scared to fall again
But if you promise me you’ll catch me
Then it’s okay

[Verse 1]
Some nerve you have
To break up my lonely
And tell me you want me
How dare you march into my heart
Oh how rude of you
To ruin my miserable
And tell me I’m beautiful
Cause I wasn’t looking for love no
Nobody asked you to get me attached to you
In fact you tricked me
And I wasn’t trying to fall in love but boy you pushed me
So all that I’m asking
Is that you handle me with caution
Cause I don’t give myself often
But I guess I’ll try today

[Chorus]
Cause I’ve had my heart
Broken before
And I promised I would never let me hurt anymore
But I tore down my walls
And opened my doors
And made room for one
So baby I’m yours
Oh baby I’m yours
Oh baby I’m yours
Oh baby I’m yours
Oh baby I’m yours
But I tore down my walls
And opened my doors
And made room for one
So baby I’m yours

[Verse 2]
I’m mad at you
For being so cute
And changing my mood
And altering my rude
What’s wrong with you
You make me sick for being so perfect
What did I do
What can I do, ohh
And I wasn’t trying
To melt this heart of iron
But the way you hold me makes the old me pass away
And I would be lying
If I said I wasn’t scared to fall again
But if you promise me you’ll catch me
Then it’s okay

[Chorus]
Cause I’ve had my heart
Broken before
And I promised I would never let me hurt anymore
But I tore down my walls
And opened my doors
And made room for one
So baby I’m yours
Oh baby I’m yours
Oh baby I’m yours
Oh baby I’m yours
Oh baby I’m yours
But I tore down my walls
And opened my doors
And made room for one
So baby I’m yours

[Bridge]
Oh I hate that I
Spend my days just wasting time day dreaming til I see you again
I’m not used to this
Oh I used to be so used to boys just using me
For you to be you to me
Feels new to me
Cause I usually cheer for the bad side
Love under a bad sign
So it makes me mad I’m
Falling again
Falling again

[Chorus]
But I tore down my walls
And opened my doors
And made room for one
So baby I’m yours
Oh baby I’m yours
Oh baby I’m yours
Oh baby I’m yours
Oh baby I’m yours
But I tore down my walls
And opened my doors
And made room for one
So baby I’m yours
Oh baby I’m yours

James Arthur – Say You Won’t Let Go

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged , at 4:21 pm by LynxLee

90d5d7bec926733d6764a8f45d3f95f9-1000x1000x1
I knew I loved you then
But you’d never know
Cause I played it cool when I was
Scared of letting go
I knew I needed you
But I never showed
I wanna stay with you
Until we’re grey and old
Just say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go

[James Arthur]
I met you in the dark
You lit me up…
You made me feel as though
I was enough…

We danced the night away
We drank too much
I held your hair back when
You were throwing up

Then you smiled over your shoulder
For a minute, I was stone cold sober
I pulled you closer to my chest
And you asked me, to stay over
I said, I already told ya
I think that you should get some rest

I knew I loved you then
But you’d never know
Cause I played it cool when I was
Scared of letting go
I knew I needed you
But I never showed
I wanna stay with you
Until we’re grey and old
Just say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go

I’ll bring you coffee with
A kiss on your head
I’ll take the kids to school
Wave them goodby
I thank my lucky stars for that night

When you looked over your shoulder
For a minute, I forget that I’m older
I wanna dance with you right now
You looked as beautiful as ever
And everyday you get a little better
You make me feel this way somehow

Cause I’m gonna love you till
My lungs give out
I promise till death we part
Like in our vows
Yeah, we’ve come so far my dear
Look how we’ve grown
And I wanna stay with you
Until we’re grey and old
Just say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go

Just say you won’t let go
Oh, Just say you won’t, say you won’t, say you won’t
Say you won’t, say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go
Just say you won’t let go

(Say you won’t let go…)

The Veronicas – On Your Side

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , at 3:27 pm by LynxLee

The best part about listening to new music is when you discovered one that “speaks/sings” to you. This track resonates very well with me in terms of the lyrics and the rhythm. Hard times are when you realize who is your true friends, and it certainly speaks likewise. It really does mean a lot when you have someone by/on your side.

Life isn’t pretty we all get a little wrecked sometimes
If God’s listening, people think you’re out of your mind
Even if you believe it
Through all the hard times
I’m on your side
On your side
I’m on your side
On your side

If we knew then what we do now
We’d hold our hands and take a bow
Together we would stand our ground
And fight

I remember the night we got drunk
I got sick on the subway
With your hands on my face
Said “It don’t matter babe
‘Cause I’m always on your side”

Life isn’t pretty we all get a little wrecked sometimes
If God’s listening, people think you’re out of your mind
Even if you believe it
Through all the hard times
I’m on your side
On your side
I’m on your side
On your side

I still wear your t-shirt out
All the ink is faded now
I wonder who you’re dreaming of
Tonight

I remember the night
When you packed all your bags in the doorway
Said, “I don’t wanna fight
You can leave, but remember
I’m always on your side”

Life isn’t pretty we all get a little wrecked sometimes
If God’s listening, people think you’re out of your mind
Even if you believe it
Through all the hard times
I’m on your side
On your side
I’m on your side
On your side

On your side
Life isn’t pretty we all get a little wrecked sometimes
If God’s listening, people think you’re out of your mind
Even if you believe it
Through all the hard times
I’m on your side

JoJo – Music.

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Personal Post tagged , , at 11:13 pm by LynxLee

Tomorrow I’ll be on a company trip to Tokyo. As I take my old camera’s SD card, I stumbled upon me and my wife’s vacation photos back in 2013 – when she was pregnant. You know how it takes 3 years to suddenly have flash back thinking, “Wait, this happened? Oh yeah, my kid is 3 years plus.. I guess it must be true.”. Seriously, these days I think to myself how I loathe travelling, but flying to another country is exactly the kind of things that would bring the glow to my wife. It strucks a memory and an awareness cord.. thinking “Honestly though, who would I be without you?”. I guess it’s phases of our lives when we look back and realize things. Of course, music like this helps to evoke the emotion as well. Sometimes music just like a friend, extending his/her hand sayin’ “Come on.. let’s go”. Oyasumi.

Tell me who, who would I be without you?
No matter how much we lose
Every time I bet my life on you

I used to hear the voices through the thin walls
Tension building up and I’d feel so small
Some nights I’d hide under the pillows ’cause I didn’t know what else to do
Started singing just to get some attention
A melody to cut through the addiction
And every song I made turned into wishes
Some of them came true

Everyone rises, everyone falls
Everyone spends some nights alone
Rich or for poor
I’m always yours
You never left me on my own

Tell me who, who would I be without you?
No matter how much we lose
Every time I bet my life on you

We were never rich not even thousands
Mom was on her knees cleaning houses
I used to go to work with her some days
And dream and dance in the big hallways

Everyone’s scared, everyone’s scarred
Everyone spends some nights alone
But every high, every low
You never left me on my own

Tell me who, who would I be without you?
No matter how much we lose
Every time I bet my life on you

Tell me who, would I be without you?
Nothing I’d rather do
Every night I bet my life on you
Who would I be without you?

Went on the road to make my daddy proud
But I lost him and then I sang to the crowd
My only hope is that he’s looking down thinking
“Oh my God, my daughter’s doing it now”

Tell me who, who would I be without you?
No matter how much we lose
Every time I bet my life on you

Tell me who, would I be without you?
Nothing I’d rather do
Every night I bet my life on you
Who would I be without you?
