Blue October – Light You Up

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 3:44 pm by LynxLee

A quick apology for the profanity in this post first hand, but great music from great artists like this needs to be shared. There are days when we get addicted to something bad, something that makes you want it all the time. When you get over the addiction, you battle your way through it with hate – mainly because you love something else even more than that. This track expresses that emotion very very well, and probably might make you feel good too. As I said, there’s profanity – so if you can’t handle the F word, please navigate away. Yet, there’s a YouTube comment that states – “f**k you has never been used so beautifully”. This is for those I have to HATE to protect those I LOVE.

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up


I’m never gonna give up
Remember what abuse did
It’s time you look at facing
As if you were in anyway understood

It always lowered me to downsize
It always lowered my faith
But it’s in the corner rising next to me
It’s in the corner like it upstage

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up

I said I wouldn’t fail you
It’s something sorry couldn’t sell you
A slow rain, a time bomb
Disconnect it won’t erase what I’d done wrong

In no way is it worth
Losing everything I am including these words
Your heart in my hands
I’m sick as all my secrets that’s why this hurts

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up

‘Cause they’ll put me in the crazy house
And it put me in the crazy farm
And I’m never gonna get back out
I’m never ever gonna treat you wrong
Get down to the earth and the people
Get down to the earth in your bed
That’s where I’m gonna go
And where I’ll never go
When I’m in my motherfucking head.

So tell your mom, tell your dad, tell your family
That I’m beyond the unreasonable sinking ship
You see I never took the time
Never took the time
Never took the time
To learn all about these things you call a relationship

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up

Evans Blue – Alone Not Lonely

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 2:01 pm by LynxLee

Days of watching Evanescence haunts me yet again. I’ve never felt this energy, and I like it. I can’t stay back down. Even if I have to do this alone, I will.

tumblr_nl9idgYHrQ1rd67i2o1_500I’m alone, I’m not lonely
I can’t let you in
I feel like choking then holding
You’re breaking the skin
This isn’t hope that I’m holding
No love you can give
Not lonely, I’ve chosen
To bleed here again and again

You’re a book, you’re a photograph
You’re a plaque on the wall or a knickknack haiku
You’re the voice of a guilty man who doesn’t call your name
Until he needs to be lied to
Call me vicious, cast your stones on me
You’re the death of a million men
You’re the face we defend with a patient virtue
You’re the judge of when a life should end
Or when a war begins, you’re such a perfect statue

You wear your necklace like you wear your noose
You fear your comfort anyway you choose
But I’m not like you!

I’m alone, I’m not lonely
I can’t let you in
I feel like choking then holding
You’re breaking the skin
This isn’t hope that I’m holding
No love you can give
Not lonely, I’ve chosen
To bleed here again and again

Now I wake up to the sound of the mourning
I feel infection
Eyes shut to the absent heartbeat
Too late to question
Will you surrender or will you lose
I love the way you blur your vision, I feel your passion
Never give up until the path you’re living finds your intention

Call me evil cause I’m not like you
You fear your comfort anyway you choose
But I’m not like you!

I’m alone, I’m not lonely
I can’t let you in
I feel like choking then holding
You’re breaking the skin
This isn’t hope that I’m holding
No love you can give
Not lonely, I’ve chosen
To bleed here again and again

One man buys the life
That someone controls the night
He died…

I’m alone, I’m not lonely
I can’t let you in
I feel like choking then holding
You’re breaking the skin
This isn’t hope that I’m holding
No love you can give
Not lonely, I’ve chosen
To bleed here again and again

The Sam Willows – All Time High

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged at 11:22 am by LynxLee

ST_20151104_EDPOP04K2PH_1809992
I saw you
walked from the doorway
Never thought that you

would look my way
I saw you
closed door behind you
and now my heart bleeds
for you to stay

But somewhere in between our lives and all of time
We can say that we were one
and I was your and you were mine

Cause you’re my all time high
You’re my all time high
Cause you’re my all time high
Cause you’re my all time high

I saw you
walked from the doorway
Never thought that you

would look my way
I saw you
closed door behind you
and now my heart bleeds
for you to stay

But somewhere in between our lives and all of time
We can say that we were one
and I was your and you were mine

Cause you’re my all time high
You’re my all time high
Cause you’re my all time high
Cause you’re my all time high

We’re coming apart
Right where we started
Picking my heart
From off the floor
So come on let’s go
Blast through the night
I’m looking at you for the rest of my life

Cause you’re my all time high
You’re my all time high
Cause you’re my all time high
Cause you’re my all time high

I’m losing you
broken bottles and everything
This is how we say goodbye

But somewhere in between our lives and all of time
We can say that we were one and I was yours and you were mine

Cause you’re my all time high
Cause you’re my all time high
Cause you’re my all time high
Cause you’re my all time high

I saw you
walked from the doorway
Never thought that you
would look my way
I saw you
closed door behind you
and now my heart beats
for you to stay

ZAYN – BeFoUr

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged at 9:53 am by LynxLee

I get this track. Sometimes people just don’t want to tell you things and it gets frustrating. I’m done judging and assuming.

hqdefaultSo say what you wanna say, what you wanna
So say what you wanna say, what you gotta say, now
So say what you wanna say, what you want
Shame is you won’t say that to my face

I’ve done this before
Not like this, not like this

Time for me to move on
So many hours have gone
Heart beats the pump of my blood
No strings for you to pull on
You’ve got your tongue in your cheek
So pardon if I don’t speak
Can’t tune my chords
Into your songs, no

Numb on a roof
Set it on fire
Just to give me proof
I’m living on a wire

[Intro]
I’ve done this before
Not like this

[Verse 1]
I don’t drink to get drunk
I feel all the right funk
If there’s something I want
I’ll take all the right wrongs
Now, I’m gonna stay in my zone
I’m tired of picking that bone
And I can’t be bothered
To fight it no more, no

[Pre-Chorus]
Numb on a roof
Set it on fire
Just to give me proof
I’m living on a wire
Numb on a roof
Set it on fire
Just to give me proof
I’m living on a wire

[Chorus]
So say what you wanna say, what you wanna
So say what you wanna say, what you gotta say, now
So say what you wanna say, what you want
Shame is you won’t say that to my face

[Post-Chorus]
I’ve done this before
Not like this, not like this

[Verse 2]
Time for me to move on
So many hours have gone
Heart beats the pump of my blood
No strings for you to pull on
You’ve got your tongue in your cheek
So pardon if I don’t speak
Can’t tune my chords
Into your songs, no

[Pre-Chorus]
Numb on a roof
Set it on fire
Just to give me proof
I’m living on a wire

[Chorus]
So say what you wanna say, what you wanna
So say what you wanna say, what you gotta say, now (So say what you wanna say)
So say what you wanna say, what you want
Shame is you won’t say that to my face

[Post-Chorus]
I’ve done this before
Not like this, not like this

[Chorus]
Flashing lights, so say what you wanna say, what you wanna
So say what you wanna say, what you gotta say, now
So say what you wanna say, what you want
Shame is you won’t say that to my face
So say what you wanna say, what you wanna
So say what you wanna say, what you gotta say, now
So say what you wanna say, what you want
Shame is you won’t say that to my face

Not like this, not like this

Tim McGraw – Humble And Kind

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , , at 10:31 am by LynxLee

If you think that good music and good lyrics are only around back in the days, you’ve probably haven’t been searching hard enough. Tim McGraw’s raw advice lyrics instills good principles and values into the listeners. This would be the great type of song to get the young ones to listen and enjoy it. The music video itself is a work of art, a celebration of life. With so many things happening around us these days, it’s hard to like people singing to do the right thing or always speaking out that they’re happy; but tracks like these won’t bother you – they’re just giving you good advice – Talk Less, Smile More. Always Stay Humble and Kind.

humbleandkind-660x400Hold the door say please say thank you
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got moutains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

You know there’s a light that glows by the front door
Don’t forget the keys under the mat
When childhood stars shine, always stay humble and kind
Go to church cause your momma says too
Visit grandpa every chance that you can
It won’t be wasted time
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door say please say thank you
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got moutains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

Don’t expect a free ride from no one
Don’t hold a grudge or a chip and here’s why
Bitterness keeps you from flying
Always stay humble and kind
Know the difference with sleeping with someone
And sleeping with someone you love
I love you ain’t no pick up line so
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door say please say thank you
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got moutains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

When it’s hot, eat a root beer popsicle
Shut off the ac and roll the windows down
Let that summer sun shine
Always stay humble and kind
Don’t take for granted the love this life gives you
When you get where you’re goin’
Don’t forget turn back around
And help the next one in line
Always stay humble and kind

Roxette – Fading Like A Flower

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 11:46 pm by LynxLee

I’ve been listening to the new Roxette album, but honestly it can’t get better than this track. Listening to this song itself transport you to those days the past when you’d melt when you see you’re crush. More importantly, when you start fading like a flower. Ah, good times. Looking back and laugh at those days, because it’s always better today and tomorrow.

Every time I see you oh I try to But when we meet it seems I can’t let go
Every time you leave the room I feel I’m fading like a flower

In a time where the sun descends alone
I ran a long long way from home
To find a heart that’s made of stone
I will try, I just need a little time
To get your face right out of my mind
To see the world through different eyes
Every time I see you oh I try to hide away
But when we meet it seems I can’t let go
Every time you leave the room I feel I’m fading like a flower
Tell me why
When I scream there’s no reply
When I reach out there’s nothing to find
When I sleep I break down and cry
Cry, yeah
Every time I see you oh I try to hide away
But when we meet it seems I can’t let go
Every time you leave the room I feel I’m fading like a flower
Fading like a rose
Fading like a rose
Beaten by the storm
Talking to myself
Getting washed by the rain
It’s such a cold cold town
Oh, it’s a such cold town
Every time I see you oh I try to hide away
But when we meet it seems I can’t let go
Every time you leave the room I feel I’m fading like a flower

Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton Musical) – Wait For It

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , , at 11:19 am by LynxLee

This song has a little anchor in me because growing up, I’ve always felt like I need to wait for whatever I wanted. I’m not the driven kind of person to chase after something, I take my time analysing every single move I need to make in order to slowly take the shot. I do like doing things right away and I don’t really understand why people hesitate, but when it comes to anything involving emotions – I’m willing to wait for it.

I recalled my first job interview when the boss asked me “if I wanted to buy a product, what do I do? I told her that I’ll wait until the product comes into market and queue in line to buy it.” Apparently it was a horrible answer, they wanted an executor – a person who gets the job done. I guess I clearly wasn’t the right person for it. As embarrassing as it may sound, I wasn’t sure if I had what it takes to do something right the first time. I never do, I make my mistakes and try and try and try. (Give, give, give – until I’ve given up)

Sometimes you change so many times in your life, you revert back to your own self and think – what am I doing? My school years were great, I stayed true to myself as I explore how others think. In college, I had the priority and importance to keep satisfying others, befriend them, be one of them, do whatever it takes to blend in. When I started working, that’s when I understood that I’m just this unique person who doesn’t necessary need to always fit in a group. I can be just simply me and move around as I like.

Perhaps there’s more things to learn growing further past my 33 years, but for now I guess I’ll have to “Wait for it”.

09-leslie-odom-jr-hamilton.w1200.h630Love doesn’t discriminate
Between the sinners
And the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep loving anyway
We laugh and we cry
And we break
And we make our mistakes
And if there’s a reason I’m by her side
When so many have tried
Then I’m willing to wait for it
I’m willing to wait for it

I am the one thing in life I can control

I am inimitable
I am an original

I’m not falling behind or running late

I’m not standing still
I am lying in wait

I’m willing to wait for it

Theodosia writes me a letter every day
I’m keeping the bed warm while her husband is away
He’s on the British side in Georgia
He’s trying to keep the colonies in line
But he can keep all of Georgia
Theodosia, she’s mine

Love doesn’t discriminate
Between the sinners
And the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep loving anyway
We laugh and we cry

Kelly Clarkson – Tightrope

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 3:39 pm by LynxLee

I would easily declare this song Kelly Clarkson’s best performance in a sentimental track. Interesting expression though, I can imagine the keyword for Tightrope being “Tension”. If you think about it, it really is a balancing act too.

1100052You’re on the tightrope, I’ve got my reasons
How did we get so tangled?
You turn, I stay straight, I bend as you break
We’re so messed up, but I know
That you and I will fall in time, eventually
Or maybe we’ll both die trying

I’m on the tightrope, you’ve got your reasons
When did it get so hard to breathe?
Hot in the spotlight, I’m feelin’ so tired
Your hands are burned from holdin’ me
And maybe you and I will fall in time
Eventually
Maybe we’ll both die trying
But I can’t bring myself to leave
‘Cause I’ve looked

And I ain’t seen nothin’ like you
The way you light up every room tonight
So easily
And I have moved mountains, babe
Just to stumble into your good grace
And I, I still can’t compete

You’re on the tightrope, I’ve got my reasons
How did we get so tangled?
You turn, I stay straight, I bend as you break
We’re so messed up, but I know
That you and I will fall in time, eventually
Or maybe we’ll both die trying

‘Cause I ain’t seen nothin’ like you
The way you light up every room tonight
So easily
And I have moved mountains, babe
Just to stumble into your good grace
And I, I still can’t compete

Oh, you and I will fall in time eventually
Or maybe we’ll both die trying

‘Cause I ain’t seen nothin’ like you
The way you light up every room tonight
So easily
And I have moved mountains, babe
Just to stumble into your good grace
And I, I still can’t compete

Alex Hope has got such a beautiful voice. Troye Sivan’s got this unique vocals. Blue was exactly the type of track you’d listen if you’re feeling Blue. Love it.

hqdefault (1)Life it’s hard, I know
All your lights are red, but I’m green to go
Used to see you high, now you’re only low
All your lights are red but I’m green to go

I want you
I’ll colour me blue
Anything it takes to make you stay
Only seeing myself
When I’m looking up at you
I want you
I’ll colour me blue
Anything it takes to make you stay
Only seeing myself
When I’m looking up at you

Life it’s hard, I know
All your lights are red, but I’m green to go
Used to see you high, now you’re only low
All your lights are red but I’m green to go

I want you
I’ll colour me blue
Anything it takes to make you stay
Only seeing myself
When I’m looking up at you
I want you
I’ll colour me blue
Anything it takes to make you stay
Only seeing myself
When I’m looking up at you

I can’t say no
Though the lights are on
There’s nobody home
Swore I’d never lose control
Then I fell in love with a heart that beats so slow

I want you
I’ll colour me blue
Anything it takes to make you stay
Only seeing myself
When I’m looking up at you
I want you
I’ll colour me blue
Anything it takes to make you stay
Only seeing myself
When I’m looking up at you

I know you’re seeing black and white
So I’ll paint you a clear blue sky
Without you I am colour-blind
It’s raining every time I open my eyes
I know you’re seeing black and white
So I’ll paint you a clear blue sky
Without you I am colour-blind
It’s raining every time I open my eyes

I want you
I’ll colour me blue
Only seeing myself
When I’m looking up at you
When I’m looking up at you

I want you
I’ll colour me blue
Anything it takes to make you stay
Only seeing myself
When I’m looking up at you
I want you
I’ll colour me blue
Anything it takes to make you stay
Only seeing myself
When I’m looking up at you

I want you
I’ll colour me blue
Anything it takes to make you stay
Only seeing myself

Lin-Manuel Miranda ft. Phillipa Soo (Hamilton Broadway Musical) – That Would Be Enough

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , at 1:25 pm by LynxLee

Reasons why I watch Broadway or West End Productions – stories, music, acting, impacts, emotions, flow, packed, love, lyrics, orchestra, live, real. I don’t think there’s any better – people who does triple threat (Act, Sing, Dance) and yet they love it so much that they do it everyday. Watching it with a packed audience feeling the same way enjoying the amazing things happening on stage – right in front of your face. There’s simply nothing like it.

I’ve stumbled upon “Hamilton” from watching James Cordens’ Mic Drop with Kevin Hart to James Corden’s Carpool with Lin-Manuel Miranda and the Broadway stars. In fact, I’m gonna watch the 2016 Tony Awards soon with my wife – on tv.

Songs like these (i.e. Wicked’s For Good) just invoke an emotional center in you that makes you feel loving is worth every action you take. The very care of lyrics and vocals just ensures you that life is worth living. Perhaps I’m exaggerating, but it really does – at least for me. Being in awareness that someone will be there for you no matter what you are going through and staying strong through it all speaks volumes in the matters of the heart. I don’t know about you, but to me – That Would Be Enough.

ddd67717d1a20f7e4388517d542e7b42.1000x417x1
I relish being your wife
Look around, look around…

Look at where you are
Look at where you started
The fact that you’re alive is a miracle
Just stay alive, that would be enough

And if this child
Shares a fraction of your smile
Or a fragment of your mind, look out world!
That would be enough

I don’t pretend to know
The challenges you’re facing
The worlds you keep erasing and creating in your mind

But I’m not afraid
I know who I married
So long as you come home at the end of the day
That would be enough

We don’t need a legacy
We don’t need money
If I could grant you peace of mind
If you could let me inside your heart…

Oh, let me be a part of the narrative
In the story they will write someday
Let this moment be the first chapter:
Where you decide to stay
And I could be enough
And we could be enough
That would be enough

[ELIZA]
Look around, look around at how lucky we are
To be alive right now
Look around, look around…

[HAMILTON]
How long have you known?

[ELIZA]
A month or so

[HAMILTON]
Eliza, you should have told me

[ELIZA]
I wrote to the General a month ago

[HAMILTON]
No

[ELIZA]
I begged him to send you home

[HAMILTON]
You should have told me

[ELIZA]
I’m not sorry

[ELIZA]
I knew you’d fight
Until the war was won

But you deserve a chance to meet your son
Look around, look around at how lucky we are
To be alive right now.

[HAMILTON]
The war’s not
Done.

[HAMILTON]
Will you relish being a poor man’s wife
Unable to provide for your life?

[ELIZA]
I relish being your wife
Look around, look around…

Look at where you are
Look at where you started
The fact that you’re alive is a miracle
Just stay alive, that would be enough

And if this child
Shares a fraction of your smile
Or a fragment of your mind, look out world!
That would be enough

I don’t pretend to know
The challenges you’re facing
The worlds you keep erasing and creating in your mind

But I’m not afraid
I know who I married
So long as you come home at the end of the day
That would be enough

We don’t need a legacy
We don’t need money
If I could grant you peace of mind
If you could let me inside your heart…

Oh, let me be a part of the narrative
In the story they will write someday
Let this moment be the first chapter:
Where you decide to stay
And I could be enough
And we could be enough
That would be enough
