James Arthur – Say You Won’t Let Go

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?

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

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

Love doesn’t discriminate
