Snow Patrol – Signal Fire

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 2:38 am by LynxLee

This song & video is so moving. Ask anyone. The lyrics are so meaningful. I like mainly the title. Signal Fire. The one thing that can get you moving, get you started on whatever, anything. Passion! I’m my own signal fire now. I’m pressing the trigger. What do you want? &, What’s your Signal Fire?


The perfect words never crossed my mind,
’cause there was nothing in there but you,
I felt every ounce of me screaming out,
But the sound was trapped deep in me,
All I wanted just sped right past me,

While I was rooted fast to the earth,
I could be stuck here for a thousand years,
Without your arms to drag me out,

There you are standing right in front of me (x2)
All this fear falls away to leave me naked,
Hold me close cause I need you to guide me to safety

In the confusion and the aftermath,
You are my signal fire,
The only resolution and the only joy,

Is the faint spark of forgiveness in your eyes,

The perfect words never crossed my mind,
’cause there was nothing in there but you,
I felt every ounce of me screaming out,
But the sound was trapped deep in me,

All I wanted just sped right past me,
While I was rooted fast to the earth,
I could be stuck here for a thousand years,
Without your arms to drag me out,

There you are standing right in front of me (x2)
All this fear falls away to leave me naked,
Hold me close cause I need you to guide me to safety

No I won’t wait forever(2x)

In the confusion and the aftermath,
You are my signal fire,
The only resolution and the only joy,
Is the faint spark of forgiveness in your eyes,

There you are standing right in front of me (x2)
All this fear falls away to leave me naked,
Hold me close cause I need you to guide me to safety,

There you are standing right in front of me (x2)
All this fear falls away to leave me naked,
Hold me close cause I need you to guide me to safety,

No I won’t wait forever(x3)

Linkin Park – Leave Out All The Rest

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 1:48 pm by LynxLee

I’ve bought LP’s latest album, Minutes to Midnight. I’m so psyched about it. At the beginning when I started listening to their album, I kinda dislike it a bit but once I start listening to every word & every sound, it starts to grow on me. It’s pretty good. IMHO, this song is the best song in the whole album. Among all the rest, there are plenty different flavours & style to this album. Not like the first or second album, I guarantee you’d be disappointed if you wanted another Meteora. Can’t wait for this song to be released in MTV, it’ll rock. In fact, any song released will rock! Btw, this is the first album with an F word in it. Also, don’t expect hard rock or aggressive rap; the lyrics & music is more mature than you think!

  • Wake – an interlude to get you in the mood
  • Given Up – The loudest & most roughest track in the album
  • Leave Out All The Rest – My favourite song, kinda like “Numb”
  • Bleed It Out – Rap & Funk & Belting Vocals (should be cool in concerts)
  • Shadow of the Day – Sounds like “U2’s With or without you”
  • What I’ve Done – You’ve heard it, rock & one of a kind
  • Hands Held High – A little mix of street with church. (Mike Raps)
  • No More Sorrow – Rock, reminds me of My Chemical Romance. =P
  • Valentine’s Day – Relaxing “sort of” ballad.
  • In Between – A little like “Blue October’s Hate Me” but Mike sings slow.
  • In Pieces – A typical Linkin Park classic style.
  • The Little Things Give You Away – Slow & Melodic.

“Leave Out All The Rest” is totally my expression since the beginning of time. I guess I’ve done so many mistakes in life. Let mercy come & wash away what I’ve done.

That’s my opinion on Linkin Park’s new album. Do buy the album & check out these songs!

Got assignment to finish off.
Cheers,
Dan

I dreamed I was missing
You were so scared
But no one would listen
Cause no one else cared

After my dreaming
I woke with this fear
What am I leaving
When I’m done here

So if you’re asking me
I want you to know

[Chorus]
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I’ve done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

And don’t resent me
And when you’re feeling empty
Keep me in your memory

Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest
[End Chorus]

Don’t be afraid
I’ve taking my beating
I’ve shared what I’ve been

I’m strong on the surface
Not all the way through
I’ve never been perfect
But neither have you

So if you’re asking me
I want you to know

[Chorus]
When my time comes

Forget the wrong that ive done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

Don’t resent me
And when you’re feeling empty
Keep me in your memory

Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest
[End Chorus]

Forgetting
All the hurt inside
You’ve learned to hide so well

Pretending
Someone else can come and save me from myself
I can’t be who you are

[Chorus]
When my time comes
Forget the wrong that ive done
Help me leave behind some
Reasons to be missed

Don’t resent me
And when you’re feeling empty
Keep me in your memory

Leave out all the rest
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting
All the hurt inside
You’ve learned to hide so well

Pretending
Someone else can come and save me from myself
I can’t be who you are
I can’t be who you are

Fergie – Big Girls Don’t Cry

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 5:47 pm by LynxLee

Fergie delivers such a cool song. Really, I like these lyrics. I like how the whole flow of the song. It’s true though, the older we get; the more mature the lyrics get. This is an example. Nice..

Like the little school mate in the school yard
We’ll play jacks and uno cards
Ill be your best friend and you’ll be mine
Valentine
Yes you can hold my hand if u want to
Cause I want to hold yours too

Well be playmates and lovers and share our secret worlds
But its time for me to go home
Its getting late, dark outside
I need to be with myself in center clarity
Peace, Serenity

I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It’s personal, Myself and I
We’ve got some straightenin’ out to do
And I’m gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
But I’ve got to get a move on with my life
Its time to be a big girl now
And big girls don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry

Da Da Da Da
The smell of your skin lingers on me now
Your probably on your flight back to your home town
I need some shelter of my own protection baby
To be with myself in center clarity
Peace, Serenity

[CHORUS]
I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It’s personal, Myself and I
We’ve got some straightenin’ out to do
And I’m gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
But I’ve got to get a move on with my life
Its time to be a big girl now
And big girls don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry

The path that I’m walking
I must go alone
I must take the baby steps until I’m full grown
Fairytales don’t always have a happy ending, do they
And I foresee the dark ahead if I stay

[CHORUS]
I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to with you
It’s personal, Myself and I
We’ve got some straightenin’ out to do
And I’m gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
But I’ve got to get a move on with my life
Its time to be a big girl now
And big girls don’t cry

Like the little school mate in the school yard
We’ll play jacks and uno cards
Ill be your best friend and you’ll be mine
Valentine
Yes you can hold my hand if u want to
Cause I want to hold yours too
Well be playmates and lovers and share our secret worlds
But its time for me to go home
Its getting late, dark outside
I need to be with myself in center clarity
Peace, Serenity

[CHORUS]
I hope you know, I hope you know
That this has nothing to do with you
It’s personal, Myself and I
We’ve got some straightenin’ out to do
And I’m gonna miss you like a child misses their blanket
But I’ve got to get a move on with my life
Its time to be a big girl now
And big girls don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry

La Da Da Da Da Da

Michael Bublé – Everything

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged at 4:57 pm by LynxLee

Everything is as expected. Chelsea is the FA Champions, AC Milan is the UEFA Champions, Jordin Sparks is the American Idol & Everything’s going my way.

It’s real exciting. =P LoL. This song suits my mood perfectly. Cheers,

Dan

You’re a carousel, you’re a wishing well,
And you light me up, when you ring my bell.
You’re a mystery, you’re from outer space,
You’re every minute of my everyday.

And I can’t believe, that I’m your man,
And I get to kiss you baby just because I can.
Whatever comes our way, ah we’ll see it through,
And you know that’s what our love can do.

And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It’s you, it’s you, You make me sing
You’re every line, you’re every word, you’re everything.

You’re a falling star, You’re the get away car.
You’re the line in the sand when I go too far.
You’re the swimming pool, on an August day.
And you’re the perfect thing to say.

And you play you’re coy, but it’s kinda cute.
Ah, When you smile at me you know exactly what you do.
Baby don’t pretend, that you don’t know it’s true.
Cause you can see it when I look at you.

[Chorus:]
And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It’s you, it’s you, You make me sing.
You’re every line, you’re every word, you’re everything.

You’re a carousel, you’re a wishing well,
And you light me up, when you ring my bell.
You’re a mystery, you’re from outer space,
You’re every minute of my everyday.

And I can’t believe, that I’m your man,
And I get to kiss you baby just because I can.
Whatever comes our way, ah we’ll see it through,
And you know that’s what our love can do.

[Chorus:]
And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It’s you, it’s you, You make me sing
You’re every line, you’re every word, you’re everything.

So, La, La, La, La, La, La, La
So, La, La, La, La, La, La, La

[Chorus:]
And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It’s you, it’s you, You make me sing.
You’re every line, you’re every word, you’re everything.
You’re every song, and I sing along.
‘Cause you’re my everything.
Yeah, yeah

So, La, La, La, La, La, La, La
So, La, La, La, La, La, La, La

Jordin Sparks – This Is My Now

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 10:00 pm by LynxLee

Jordin Sparks, once again sparked the whole world with this finale winner song. Lovely & Amazing. Sorry Blake, but it’s time Jordin be awarded. =P

She looks so beautiful. Especially the end of the song when she gets teary. Gorgeous. She’s so cute when she said, “No, I’m ok, yeah..” Hehe.. =)


This is my now, and I am breathing in the moment.
As I look around I can’t believe the love I see.
My fears behind me, gone are the shadows and doubts.
That was then, this is my now.

There was a time I packed my dreams away.
Living in a shell, hiding from myself.

There was a time when I was so afraid.
I thought I’d reached the end,
But baby that was then
I am made of more than my yesterdays.

This is my now, and I am breathing in the moment.
Because I look around
I can’t believe the love I see.
My fears behind me, gone are the shadows and doubts
That was then, this is my now.

And I have the courage like never before, yeah.
I’ve settled for less now I’m ready for more,
Ready for more.

This is my now, and I am breathing in the moment.
As I look around I can’t believe the love I see.
My fears behind me, gone are the shadows and doubts.
That was then, this is my now.

I’m living in the moment
I look around I can’t believe the love I see.
My fears behind me, gone are the shadows and doubts.
That was then, this is my now.
This is my now.

Jordin Sparks – Wishing On A Star

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 10:33 pm by LynxLee

Wanna guess who will be the American Idol 2007? Hehe.. you know my pick! 😉

I think Jordin did a great job with this song. Blake had the style right with one or two of the songs whereas Melinda is pretty consistent in any song she sang.

Hmm.. I’d go for Jordin all the way, based on her singing talents, her presentation, her style, her looks, her stage presence & mainly, her vocals. Plus, I like her taste of music as well. Contemporary & unique, improving the songs she sings from the original.

What’s your take?

Dan

And I wish on all the rainbows that I see
I wish on all the people who really dream
And I’m wishing on tomorrow, praying it’ll comes
And I’m wishing on all the lovin’ we’ve ever done

I’m wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I’m wishing on a dream
To follow what it means

[Not in video]
I’m wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I’m wishing on a dream
To follow what it means

[/Not in video]

And I wish on all the rainbows that I see
I wish on all the people who really dream
And I’m wishing on tomorrow, praying it’ll comes
And I’m wishing on all the lovin’ we’ve ever done

[Not in video]
I never thought I’d see
A time when you would be
So far away from home
So far away from me

Just think of all the moments that we’d spent
I just can’t let you go, for me you were meant
And I didn’t mean to hurt you, but I know
That in the game of love you reap what you sow

[/Not in video]

I feel it’s time we should make up, baby
I feel it’s time for us to get back together
And make the best of things, oh, baby
When we’re together, whether or never

[Not in video]
I feel it’s time we should make up, baby
I feel it’s time for us to get back together
And make the best of things, oh, baby
When we’re together, whether or never

I’m wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I’m wishing on a dream
To follow what it means

And I wish on all the rainbows that I see
I wish on all the people we’ve ever been
And I’m hopin’ on all the days to come and days to go
And I’m hopin’ on days of lovin’ you so

I’m wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I’m wishing on a star
Oh;oh;oh;
And I wish on all the rainbows that I see

I’m wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I’m wishing on a star
And I wish on all the rainbows that I see

I’m wishing on a star
To follow where you are
I’m wishing on a star
oh, oh, ah, ah

I’m wishing on a star, oh,oh
To follow where you are
I’m wishing on a star, baby
To follow wherever you might be
[/Not in video]

Wishing in a star, oh, oh

To follow where you are, oh, oh, ah, ah

Wishing in a star, oh, oh

Gwen Stefani – 4 in The Morning

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 12:55 pm by LynxLee

Gwen Stefani is gorgeous. This song has a strange familiar feel to many other songs. This song is so unexpected, so fresh. I think this song is about insecurity, about this person wanting more from his/her significant other.

Here’s my reply to this song: –

As for my life now, I’ve just realized all that I have ever done, or give & give is just a bunch of waste. Nothing last forever. It’s like; I gave all my love, all my heart, all my time & money, I give all that I can including worry & care.

All that I keep getting is heartbreak & complications. The worst of all is that once a relationship is over, there’s nothing you can do about it anymore. I’m being blamed for almost every single thing in her life & what can I do to make things right? Only manage my own life, that’s all.

It’s funny, we give all the trust & confidence in someone, & he/she let us down so greatly. In turn, he/she drops the message saying that we are the one who disappoint him/her. Break ups.. It’s such a great waste. *shakes head*

I guess too much of anything is bad enough.

Dan

I give you everything that I am
I’m handin over everything that I’ve got
Cause I wanna have a really true love
Don’t ever wanna have to go and give you up
Stay up till four in the morning and the tears are pouring
And I wanna make it worth the fight

I guess I feel alright , but it hurts when I think, when I let it sink in, it’s all over me~

Wakin up to find another day
The moon got lost again last night
But now the sun has finally had it’s say
I guess I feel alright

But it hurts
when I think,
when I let it sink in
It’s all over me
I’m lying here in the dark
Watchin you sleep, it hurts a lot

[Bridge]
And all I know is you’ve got to give me everything
Nothing less ’cause you know I give you all of me

[Chorus]
I give you everything that I am
I’m handin over everything that I’ve got
Cause I wanna have a really true love
Don’t ever wanna have to go and give you up
Stay up till four in the morning and the tears are pouring
And I wanna make it worth the fight

What have we been doing for all this time
Baby if we’re gonna do it come on do it right

All I wanted was to know I’m safe
Don’t wanna lose the love I found
Remember when you said that you would change
Don’t let me down

It’s not fair, how you are
I can’t be complete, can you give me more

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

Oh please, you know what I need
Save all your love for me
We can’t escape the love
Give me everything that you have

[Bridge]

[Chorus]

Fingering Pain

Posted in Funny tagged at 1:15 am by LynxLee

My bro just shared this with me a while ago. Good one.. hehe.. =P

A man went to the doctor to see what was wrong with him.
He told the doctor “doctor, every part of my body i touch i feel pain. ”
So he showed the doctor. He touched his head, and he screamed. Touched his legs, he screamed.
After a while the doctor said ” I know what is your problem.”
“Your finger is broken.”

Shinedown – I Dare You

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 12:34 am by LynxLee

I have actually featured this song in my last blog years ago when Shinedown was quite a hot stuff. Now, I just found a cool YouTube video where this one YouTube user actually blended a compilation of “Heroes” videos to this song. The lyrics are a perfect blend to the video. Cool. Do check it out! Salute!

Dan

Hello, let me introduce you to
The characters in the show
One says yes, one says no
Decide – which voice in your head you can keep alive

Hello, are you still chasing
The memories in shadows
Some stay young, some grow old
Come alive, there are thoughts unclear
You can never hide

Even in madness, I know you still believe
Paint me your canvas so I become
What you could never be

Hello, let me introduce you to
The characters in the show
One says yes, one says no
Decide – which voice in your head you can keep alive

Even in madness, I know you still believe
Paint me your canvas so I become
What you could never be

I dare you to tell me to walk through the fire
Brand my soul and call me a liar
I dare you to tell me to walk through the fire
I dare you to tell me
I dare you to

Hello, are you still chasing
The memories in shadows
Some stay young, some grow old
Come alive, there are thoughts unclear
You can never hide

Even in madness, I know you still believe
Paint me your canvas so I become
What you could never be

I dare you to tell me to walk through the fire
Brand my soul and call me a liar
I dare you to tell me to walk through the fire
I dare you to tell me
I dare you to

Hello
Hello…
I dare you to tell me to walk through the fire
Brand my soul and call me a liar
I dare you to tell me to walk through the fire
I dare you to tell me
I dare you to
Hello…
Hello…
I dare you to tell me
I dare you to
I dare you to tell me
I dare you to
