Steven Curtis Chapman – Heaven Is The Face

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 8:03 pm by LynxLee

Chapman and his wife had adopted three children from China and have started a charity organization called Show Hope (formerly called Shaohannah’s Hope), that mobilizes individuals and communities to care for orphans through its international orphan care work as well as adoption aid grants to help put more orphans from overseas and the U.S. in loving, forever families.

One of their youngest daughter, Maria Sue Chunxi Chapman, was killed in a tragic accident on May 21, 2008; accidentally hit by her brother driving a Toyota Land Cruiser pulling into the driveway of their home in Franklin, Tennessee, according to Tennessee Department of Safety spokesman Mike Browning. Maria was pronounced dead upon arrival to the hospital.
(Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steven_Curtis_Chapman)

In one of his album, Beauty Will Rise; Chapman opens up his heart for the most personal and most emotional release of his career. This song’s lyrics alone has such a rich content to how it feels like to have love so deeply. I heard on one of the Malaysian radio stations about this artist and track and I thought to share it here in my blog.

Anyway, as much as I love this blog so much; I have to leave it for a while. Maybe a different project, or something else. My work has occupied so much of my time, I hardly have time to blog anymore. I’m also considering to do something else that may benefit more people in a lot more ways. I’m open to suggestion, so please email me if you have any ideas. Life surely worth more than just self satisfaction, isn’t it? Anyway, this last 10 posts today will be it for the time being. Hope I’ll start a new project on something else soon.

Until then, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year; people!

Mucho Gracias,
DanL

Heaven is the face of a little girl
With dark brown eyes
That disappear when she smiles.
Heaven is the place
Where she calls my name
Says, Daddy please come play with me for awhile.

God, I know, its all of this and so much more,
But God, You know, that this is what Im aching for.
God, you know, I just cant see beyond the door.
So right now…

But in my minds eye I can see a place
Where Your glory fills every empty space.
All the cancer is gone,
Every mouth is fed,
And theres no one left in the orphans bed.
Every lonely heart finds their one true love,
And theres no more goodbye,
And no more not enough,
And theres no more enemy (no more).

Heaven is the face of a little girl
With dark brown eyes
That disappear when she smiles.
Heaven is the place
Where she calls my name
Says, Daddy please come play with me for awhile.

Chorus:
God, I know, its all of this and so much more,
But God, You know, that this is what Im aching for.
God, you know, I just cant see beyond the door.
So right now…

Heaven is the sound of her breathing deep,
Lying on my chest, falling fast asleep while I sing.
And Heaven is the weight of her in my arms,
Being there to keep her safe from harm while she dreams

And God, I know, its all of this and so much more,
But God, You know, that this is what Im longing for
God, you know, I just cant see beyond the door.

Bridge:
But in my minds eye I can see a place
Where Your glory fills every empty space.
All the cancer is gone,
Every mouth is fed,
And theres no one left in the orphans bed.
Every lonely heart finds their one true love,
And theres no more goodbye,
And no more not enough,
And theres no more enemy (no more).

Heaven is a sweet, maple syrup kiss
And a thousand other little things I miss with her gone.
Heaven is the place where she takes my hand
And leads me to You,
And we both run into Your arms.

Oh God, I know, its so much more than I can dream.
Its far beyond anything I can conceive.
So God, You know, Im trusting You until I see
Heaven in the face of my little girl,
Heaven in the face of my little girl.

Leona Lewis – I Got You

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 8:02 pm by LynxLee

Leona Lewis’s new song, Happy; proves to be a sad happy song, but this track has got to be one of my favorites from her latest album, Echo. I always love the song of certainty, assurance, and above all; love.

Go ahead and say goodbye
I’ll be all right
Go ahead and make me cry
I’ll be all right
And when you need a place
To run to
For better or worse
I got you

‘Cause this is love and life
And nothing we can both control
And if it don’t feel right
You’re not losing me by letting me know

A place to crash
I got you
No need to ask
I got you
Just get on the phone
I got you
Come and pick you up if I have to
What’s weird about it
Is we’re right at the end
And mad about it
Just figured it out in my head
I’m proud to say
I got you

Go ahead and say goodbye
I’ll be alright
Go ahead and make me cry
I’ll be alright
And when you need a place to run to
For better for worse
I got you
I got you

Ain’t falling a part, or bitter
Let’s be bigger than that and remember
The cooling outdoor when you’re all alone
We’ll go on surviving
No drama, no need for a show
Just wanna say
I got you

Go ahead and say goodbye
I’ll be alright
Go ahead and make me cry
I’ll be alright
And when you need a place to run to
For better for worse
I got you
Go ahead and say goodbye (go ahead)
I’ll be alright (say goodbye)
Go ahead and make me cry
I’ll be alright
And when you need a place to run to
For better for worse
I got you

‘Cause this is love and life
And nothing we can both control
And if it don’t feel right
You’re not losing me by letting me know

Go ahead and say goodbye (say goodbye)
I’ll be alright
Go ahead and make me cry
I’ll be alright
And when you need a place to run to
For better for worse
I got you
Go ahead and say goodbye (go ahead)
I’ll be alright (say goodbye)
Go ahead and make me cry
I’ll be alright
And when you need a place to run to
For better for worse
I got you

A place to crash
I got you
No need to ask
I got you

Buckcherry – Everything

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 8:01 pm by LynxLee

Again, this music video was played on the Hard Rock Hotel in Bali while I rest on the bed. Remember the very good and popular track from the same group? Something about Sorry? Well, let me refresh your mind – Sorry. Do check their stuff out, they are really legends! I really really like this track a lot.

I wanna be, I want everything, I want everything.

Somewhere she is on the streets trying to make things better.
Praying to God and breathing deep gotta break this long obsession.

Buried way beneath the sheets, I think she’s having a meltdown.
Finding it hard to fall asleep, she won’t let anyone help her.

[Pre-Chorus]
The look on her face a waste of time she won’t let go gonna roll the dice.
Losing her grace starts to cry I feel her pain when I look in her eyes.

[Chorus]
I wanna be, I want everything, I want everything.

Somewhere she is on the streets trying to make things better.
Praying to God and breathing deep gotta break this long obsession.

[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus X2]

If I had everything would I still want to be alive or want to be high. [X2]
Now and then she talks to me and sometimes writes me letters.

[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus X3]

Your eyes, never close your eyes open up your mind and you can have everything. [X2]

Def Leppard – Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 8:01 pm by LynxLee

I remember being in Bali last month in Hard Rock Hotel and this song was playing while I rested on my bed. The whole emotional nostalgic moments just played back in my mind. All the good times I had, the smiles, the laughters, the crazy things I used to do, being in love and all. Times sure have changed. Such a legendary band, incredible track.

Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah
Have you ever wanted someone
You just couldn’t have
Did you ever try so hard
That your world just fell apart
Have you ever needed someone so bad
And you’re the girl I gotta have
I gotta have you baby

Here I am, I’m in the wrong bed again
It’s just a game I just can’t win
There you are breathin’ soft on my skin
Still you won’t let me in

Why save your kisses for a rainy day
Baby let the moment take your heart away

Have you ever needed someone so bad, yeah
Have you ever wanted someone
You just couldn’t have
Did you ever try so hard
That your world just fell apart
Have you ever needed someone so bad
And you’re the girl I gotta have
I gotta have you baby

There you go, midnight promises again
But they’re broken by the dawn
You wanna go further, faster every day baby
But in the morning you’ll be gone
And I’m alone

[Repeat Bridge]
[Repeat Chorus]

Every dream I dream is like
Some Kinda rash ‘n’ reckless scene
To give out such crazy love
You must be some kinda drug
And if my time don’t ever come
For me you’re still the same
Damned if I don’t, damned if I do
I gotta get a fix on you

[Repeat chorus]

One Republic – All The Right Moves

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 8:00 pm by LynxLee

This track came to a surprise to me, the first time I heard it; I didn’t really enjoy it much. After listening to the whole track, it’s a track that can make you feel special; don’t really know why though.

Do you think I’m special?
Do you think I’m nice?
Am I bright enough to shine in your spaces?
Between the noise you hear
And the sound you like
Are we just sinking in an ocean of faces?

It can be possible that rain can fall,
Only when it’s over our heads
The sun is shining everyday, but it’s far away
All the world is dead.

They’ve got,
They’ve got all the right friends in all the wrong places
So yeah, we’re going down
We’ve got all the right moves and and all the wrong faces
So yeah, we’re going down


All the right friends in all the wrong places
So yeah, we’re going down
They’ve got all the right moves in all the right faces
So yeah, we’re going down

Just paint the picture of a perfect place
They’ve got it better than what anyone’s told you
They’ll be the King of Hearts, and you’re the Queen of Spades
And we’ll fight for you like we were your soldiers

I know we’ve got it good
But they’ve got it made
And the grass is getting greener each day
I know things are looking up
But soon they’ll take us down
before anybody’s knowing our name.

They’ve got all the right friends in all the right places
So yeah, we’re going down
We’ve got all the right moves and all the wrong faces
So yeah, we’re going down
They said, everybody knows, everybody knows where we’re going
Yeah, we’re going down
They said, everybody knows, everybody knows where we’re going
Yeah, we’re going down

Do you think I’m special?
Do you think I’m nice?
Am I bright enough to shine in your spaces?
Between the noise you hear
And the sound you like
Are we just sinking in an ocean of faces?

It can be possible that rain can fall,
Only when it’s over our heads
The sun is shining everyday, but it’s far away
All the world is dead.

They’ve got,
They’ve got all the right friends in all the wrong places
So yeah, we’re going down
We’ve got all the right moves and and all the wrong faces
So yeah, we’re going down

They said, everybody knows, everybody knows where we’re going
Yeah, we’re going down
They said, everybody knows, everybody knows where we’re going
http://www.elyricsworld.com/all_the_r…
Yeah, we’re going down

It doesn’t matter what you see.
I know i could never be
Someone that looks like you.
It doesn’t matter what you say
I know i could never face
someone that could sound like you.

All the right friends in all the wrong places
So yeah, we’re going down
We’ve got all the right moves and all the wrong faces
So yeah, we’re going down

All the right friends in all the wrong places
So yeah, we’re going down
We’ve got all the right moves and all the wrong faces
So yeah, we’re going down

They said, everybody knows everybody knows where we’re going
Yeah we’re going down
They said, everybody knows everybody knows where we’re going
Yeah we’re going down

Yeah we’re going down
Yeah we’re going down

All the right moves, hey
Yeah, we’re going down
All the right moves, hey
Yeah, we’re going down

IYAZ – Replay

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 7:59 pm by LynxLee

Funny how I remember the radio station mentioned this song was song by Sean Kingston? Even the Internet returned that this track is from him. Oh well, it does sound like Sean Kingston in the background anyway. Regardless, awesome track indeed.

Shawty’s like a melody in my head
That I can’t keep out
Got me singin’ like
Na na na na everydays
It’s like my iPod stuck on replay, replay-ay-ay-ay

Remember the first time we met
You was at the mall wit yo friend
I was scared to approach ya
But then you came closer
Hopin’ you would give me a chance

Who would have ever knew
That we would ever be more than friends
We’re real worldwide, breakin all the rules
She like a song played again and again

That girl, like somethin off a poster
That girl, is a dime they say
That girl, is a gun to my holster
She’s runnin through my mind all day, ay

Shawty’s like a melody in my head
That I can’t keep out
Got me singin’ like

It’s like my iPod stuck on replay, replay-ay-ay-ay

Shawty’s like a melody in my head
That I can’t keep out
Got me singin’ like
Na na na na everydays
It’s like my iPod stuck on replay, replay-ay-ay-ay

See you been all around the globe
Not once did you leave my mind
We talk on the phone, from night til the morn
Girl you really change my life
Doin things I never do
I’m in the kitchen cookin things she likes

We’re real worldwide, breakin all the rules
Someday I wanna make you my wife
That girl, like somethin off a poster
That girl, is a dime they say
That girl, is the gun to my holster
She’s runnin through my mind all day, ay

Shawty’s like a melody in my head

A girl that could write you a symphony
The one that could fill your fantasies
So come baby girl let’s sing with me
Ay, I can be your melody

The one that could fill your fantasies
So come baby girl let’s sing with me

Ay, na na na na na na na

Keri Hilson – Slow Dance

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 7:58 pm by LynxLee

I’d melt everytime Keri Hilson releases a new video. Her vocals, tracks, lyrics and everything reminds me of my previous relationship in the past. We were close for a bit, then everything came crashing down. I guess we’re just not compatible, kind wished everything worked out; but nothing’s ever the same ever again after some time. Keri’s tracks Money Up, Change Me and Alienated were the exact sentiment to our breakup. I guess we all want more; perhaps just often not the same thing together.

Rewind,
Make this moment last forever.
Your body is calling me.

I don’t want to come on to strong,
But something happens when we slow dance.
Something happens when we slow dance.


Come here Baby, sometimes I just wanna dance with you…

Put your arms around me boy,
I got something to show you, tonight.
And you know I need your attention baby.
Aint no other girl that can rock your world like I…
So…

Rewind,
Make this moment last forever.
Your body is calling me.

I don’t want to come on to strong,
But something happens when we slow dance.
Something happens when we slow dance.

Talking with my fingertips,
I got so much to say babe…
Can you read between the lines?

Rewind,
Make this moment last forever.
Your body is calling me

I don’t want to come on to strong,
But something happens when we slow dance.
Something happens when we slow dance.

Got you in my element.
Time to represent.
The whole world is staring at the both of us…
And I’m giving you all my love…

I don’t want to come on to strong,
But something happens when we slow dance.
Something happens when we slow dance

Owl City – Fireflies

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 7:54 pm by LynxLee

I heard this song first from watching David Choi’s cover on it. Then, the radio station played this song. Such an amazing track, I had to include this to my post. Love the whole composition.

You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep

‘Cause they’d fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You’d think me rude
But I would just stand and stare

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems


You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep

‘Cause they’d fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You’d think me rude
But I would just stand and stare

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems

‘Cause I’d get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance

A foxtrot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

Leave my door open just a crack
(Please take me away from here)
‘Cause I feel like such an insomniac
(Please take me away from here)
Why do I tire of counting sheep
(Please take me away from here)
When I’m far too tired to fall asleep

To ten million fireflies
I’m weird ’cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell

But I’ll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
‘Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams

Sonos – I Want You Back

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 7:49 pm by LynxLee

A remake from the Jackson 5’s classic, Sonos brought a cool “accapella” vocals to it. I started noticing this track from YouTube itself. Feel free to visit my channel, I share my favourite videos all the time open for anyone to see them – http://www.youtube.com/LynxLee

Someone picked you from the bunch
One glance was all it took
Now it’s much too late for me
To take a second look

I want you back, I want, Oh, Baby come back to me
I want you back, I want you back, Baby come back to me
I want you back, I want you back, Baby come back to me
I want you back, I want you back, Oh baby come back to me
I want you back, I want you back, Baby come back to me
I want you back, I want you back, Oh baby come back to me

I want you back, Baby come back to me (4x)

[Da dun da dun da dut
Daa dun da dun da dut
Da dun da dun da dut
Daa dun da dun da da da dut] (2x)

When I had you to myself
I didn’t want you around
Those pretty faces always made you
Stand out in a crowd

Someone picked you from the bunch
One glance was all it took
Now it’s much too late for me
To take a second look

Oh, baby, give me one more chance (One more chance)
Won’t you take me please
Back in your heart
Oh, darlin’, I was blind to let you go
But now that I see you in his arms

Ooh, Ooh, Ooh
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh
I want you back

Tryin’ to live without your love
Was one long, sleepless night
Let me show you, girl
That I know wrong from right

Every street you walk on
I leave tear stains on the ground
Following the girl
I didn’t even want around

Oh, baby, give me one more chance
Won’t you take me please
Back in your heart
Oh, darlin’, I was blind to let you go
But now that I see you in his arms

I want you back, I want, Oh, Baby come back to me
I want you back, I want you back, Baby come back to me
I want you back, I want you back, Baby come back to me
I want you back, I want you back, Oh baby come back to me
I want you back, I want you back, Baby come back to me
I want you back, I want you back, Oh baby come back to me

Oh, Baby, give me one more chance
Won’t you take me please
Back in your heart
Oh, darlin’, I was blind to let you go
But now that I see you

Duh dun duh dun duh dut (x8)

Samantha James – Rise

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 7:47 pm by LynxLee

If you guys like or don’t like my previous post on Samantha James’s slow track – Deep Surprise, chances are you might love this track instead.
The video editor in YouTube combined this song into the movie Great Expectations. It looks really good.
Cheers.

You should believe me
And everything I choose to do
You should believe that I’ll
Always come back to you

People rise together
When they believe in tomorrow
Change the day to forever
This life keeps movin’

You should believe me
And everything I choose to do
You should believe that I’ll
Always come back to you

Life is discovering
The love that we create
Life is a mystery
We need to embrace

In every way
You need to let go
You’ll see all your dreams will follow
In every way
You need to let go

(Chorus)
People rise together
When they believe in tomorrow
Change the day to forever
This life keeps movin’
(Repeat 2x)

Open your mind and see
We have everything we need
Dream or reality
Fulfill its destiny

In every way
You need to let go
You’ll see all your dreams will follow
In every way
You need to let go

(Chorus)
People rise together
When they believe in tomorrow
Change the day to forever
This life keeps movin’
(Repeat 2x)

You need to let go…
You need to let go…

(With instrumentals)
People rise
When they believe
Change the day
This life keeps movin’

(Chorus)
People rise together
When they believe in tomorrow
Change the day to forever
This life keeps movin’

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah…
