Christian Bautista – Since I Found You

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 4:38 pm by LynxLee

My wife picked a bunch of songs from a bunch of list over the Internet to be used in our wedding last Sunday. This is the track that I chose to go with within 24 hours to the wedding for a March-In Song. I like the build up and the romantic feel to this track a lot. We had a great wedding and it was all that we hoped for and more.

More on Christian Bautista below:

Christian Joseph Morata Bautista (born October 19, 1981), more popularly known by his screen name Christian Bautista, is a Filipino singer, actor and model. He was a finalist of Star In A Million, a Philippine reality show aired on ABS-CBN channel, winning the 4th place in the competition in 2003. After the contest, he signed a recording contract with Warner Music Philippines and released his self-titled debut album, Christian Bautista. The multi-platinum album established his name as an OPM artist with songs such as “The Way You Look At Me”, “Invincible” and “Hands To Heaven” topping the charts. The singer gained popularity not only in the Philippines but in other countries in Southeast Asia such as Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.

I think of you in everything that I do
to be with you what ever it takes I’ll do
cause you my love, you all my heart desires
you’ve lighten up my life forever I’m alive

your love shines bright
through all the corners of my heart
maybe you are my dearest heart
I give you all I have my heart, my soul, my life
my destiny is you
forever true… I’m so in love with you

since I found you my world seems so brand new

Adele – Rolling In The Deep

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 2:05 pm by LynxLee

I can’t believe she’s born in 1988! So young.. and so talented. This track is the lead single of her new album – 21. Her last album – 19 was famous for the lead single called “Chasing Pavements“. Recently Haley Reinhart, a finalist contestant of American Idol performed it on stage and it just reminds me how deep the song really is.

Adele described this track as a “dark bluesy gospel disco tune.”. Adele states that the track was inspired by her anger towards her ex: “‘Rolling in the Deep’ is the first single, and I guess it’s my musical equivalent of saying things in the heat of the moment. It is my reaction to being told [by my ex] that my life is going to be boring and lonely and rubbish, and that I was a weak person if I didn’t stay in the relationship. And I wrote that as a sort of fuck you.”

Nothing like a woman scorned, huh? Feel the wrath! Seriously, I’m entertained and addicted to this song.

There’s a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch, and it’s bringing me out the dark
Finally I can see you crystal clear
Go ahead and sell me out and I’ll lay your shit bare
See how I’ll leave with every piece of you
Don’t underestimate the things that I will do

Throw your soul through every open door
Count your blessings to find what you look for
Turn my sorrow into treasured gold
You pay me back in kind and reap just what you sow

The scars of your love remind me of us
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside of your hand
But you played it with a beating

There’s a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch, and it’s bringing me out the dark
Finally I can see you crystal clear
Go ahead and sell me out and I’ll lay your shit bare
See how I’ll leave with every piece of you
Don’t underestimate the things that I will do

There’s a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch
And it’s bringing me out the dark

The scars of your love remind me of us
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

Baby, I have no story to be told
But I’ve heard one of you
And I’m gonna make your head burn
Think of me in the depths of your despair
Making a home down there
As mine sure won’t be shared

The scars of your love remind me of us
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can’t help feeling
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
We could have had it all
Rolling in the deep
You had my heart inside of your hand
But you played it with a beating

Throw your soul through every open door
Count your blessings to find what you look for
Turn my sorrow into treasured gold
You pay me back in kind and reap just what you sow

(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
We could have had it all
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
We could have had it all
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
It all, it all, it all
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

We could have had it all
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
And you played it to the beat
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)

You could have had it all
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep
(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart inside of your hand
(You’re gonna wish you never had met me)

But you played it
You played it
You played it
You played it to the beat.

Mark Wills – I Do (Cherish You)

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 12:58 am by LynxLee

Since the song from my previous post was initially sang by Mark Wills, I thought I’d check out his songs and I found this. It’s the same song sang by 98 Degrees, a great song that I really enjoy singing to. Mark’s version is exactly how I heard in my head and less like 98 Degrees version. As my previous post, Mark Wills got the ball rolling by releasing this romantic song in 1998, 98 Degrees released it about a year later.

This is so going in my wedding tracks! =D

All I am, all I’ll be
Everything in this world, all that I’ll ever need
Is in your eyes, shining at me
When you smile I can feel all my passion unfolding

Your hand brushes mine
And a thousand sensations seduce me ’cause I

I do, cherish you
For the rest of my life
You don’t have to think twice
I will, love you still, from the depths of my soul
It’s beyond my control
I’ve waited so long to say this to you
If you’re asking do I love you this much, I do

All I am, all I’ll be
Everything in this world, all that I’ll ever need
Is in your eyes, shining at me
When you smile I can feel all my passion unfolding

Your hand brushes mine
And a thousand sensations seduce me ’cause I

I do, cherish you
For the rest of my life
You don’t have to think twice
I will, love you still, from the depths of my soul
It’s beyond my control
I’ve waited so long to say this to you
If you’re asking do I love you this much, I do

In my world before you
I lived outside my emotions
Didn’t know where I was going
Until that day I found you
How you opened my life to a new paradise

In a world torn by change
Still with all of my heart, until my dying day

I do, cherish you
For the rest of my life
You don’t have to think twice
I will, love you still, from the depths of my soul
It’s beyond my control
I’ve waited so long to say this to you
If you’re asking do I love you this much, yes I do

I’ve waited so long to say this to you
So, if you’re asking if I love you this much, I do
Oh, I do

Rascal Flatts – What Hurts The Most

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 1:31 pm by LynxLee

Apparently Jo from S Club 7 actually released this single on year 2005 first before this ingenious release by Rascal Flatts on year 2006. This track was initially released by Mark Wills in 2003 and has spawned even a dance version by Cascada on year 2007.

Let’s just discuss this Music Video itself:
The starting 50 seconds are an amazing clip to start the tears flowing.. and making you wonder, What happened?
Then snapshots of the couple having a good time and Rascal Flatts performing their songs in a great composition by the Director – Shaun Silva panning around the great nature.
Then at 1:53, we got revealed on what may actually happened. The girl got the guy thinking.. about what she thought about the future as she playfully ask about the future and left the truck. There were scenes of the girl vomitting and scrunching her tummy, which might mean that she got pregnant.
Towards the end, we learnt that the guy passed away from an automobile accident.
She then finally tells him about what she saw in the future, “You” in front of his tombstone.

I don’t know about you, but it’s hard not to cry or at least have goosebumps watching this (5 minutes) music video.

I can take the rain on the roof of this empty house
That don’t bother me
I can take a few tears now and then and just let them out
I’m not afraid to cry every once in a while
Even though going on with you gone still upsets me
There are days every now and again I pretend I’m ok
But that’s not what gets me

It’s hard to deal with the pain of losing you everywhere I go
But I’m doin’ It
It’s hard to force that smile when I see our old friends and I’m alone
Still Harder
Getting up, getting dressed, livin’ with this regret
But I know if I could do it over
I would trade give away all the words that I saved in my heart
That I left unspoken

What hurts the most
Was being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away
And never knowing
What could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was tryin’ to do

I can take the rain on the roof of this empty house
That don’t bother me
I can take a few tears now and then and just let them out
I’m not afraid to cry every once in a while
Even though going on with you gone still upsets me
There are days every now and again I pretend I’m ok
But that’s not what gets me

What hurts the most
Was being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away
And never knowing
What could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was tryin’ to do

It’s hard to deal with the pain of losing you everywhere I go
But I’m doin’ It
It’s hard to force that smile when I see our old friends and I’m alone
Still Harder
Getting up, getting dressed, livin’ with this regret
But I know if I could do it over
I would trade give away all the words that I saved in my heart
That I left unspoken

What hurts the most
Is being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away
And never knowing
What could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was trying to do

What hurts the most
Is being so close
And having so much to say
And watching you walk away
And never knowing
What could have been
And not seeing that loving you
Is what I was trying to do

Not seeing that loving you
That’s what I was trying to do
