Celine Dion – A Mother’s Prayer

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

Celine Dion sang this song with Andrea Bocelli on 1999, then almost 10 years later; another version with Josh Groban was released on 2008. Before that, Celine Dion re-recorded and re-written the lyrics to the form of a Mother’s prayer. For all mothers out there, these lyrics may strike a deep chord in them.

This post is dedicated to all babies; previous, current and future.

A Mother's PrayerI pray You’ll be my eyes
And watch her where she goes
And help her to be wise
Help me to let go

Every mother’s prayer
Every child knows
Lead her to a place
Guide her with Your grace
To a place where she’ll be safe

I pray she finds Your light
And holds it in her heart
As darkness falls each night
Remind her where You are

Every mother’s prayer
Every child knows
Need to find a place
Guide her to a place
Give her faith so she’ll be safe

Lead her to a place
Guide her with Your grace
To a place where she’ll be safe

Sarah McLachlan – Wait

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 9:51 am by LynxLee

When in times of grief, there’s always music we turn to. The sheer voice of emotion. Every love has a leave, yet love is forever. There’s always that bond that will never be felt by any other, only us; inside waiting.. and knowing you felt that way. I love this song to bits. Hope you feel something from this track too. You’ll always be remembered no matter what happens in life. We bid you love, wherever you may go.

Sarah McLachlan - Wait

Wait

Under a blackened sky
far beyond the glaring streetlights
sleeping on empty dreams
the vultures lie in wait
You lay down beside me then
you were with me every waking hour
so close I could feel your breath

When all we wanted was the dream
to have and to hold that precious little thing
like every generation yields
the new born hope unjaded by their years

You know if I leave you now
it doesn’t mean that I love you any less
it’s just the state I’m in
I can’t be good to anyone else like this

Under a blackened sky
far beyond the glaring streetlights
sleeping on empty dreams
the vultures lie in wait
You lay down beside me then
you were with me every waking hour
so close I could feel your breath

When all we wanted was the dream
to have and to hold that precious little thing
like every generation yields
the new born hope unjaded by their years

Pressed up against the glass
I found myself wanting sympathy
but to be consumed again
oh I know would be the death of me
and there is a love that’s inherently given
a kind of blindness offered to appease
and in that light of forbidden joy
oh I know I won’t receive it

When all we wanted was the dream
to have and to hold that precious little thing
like every generation yields
the newborn hope unjaded by their years

You know if I leave you now
it doesn’t mean that I love you any less
it’s just the state I’m in
I can’t be good to anyone else like this

When all we wanted was the dream
to have and to hold that precious little thing
like every generation yields
the new born hope unjaded by their years…

Shayne Ward – Obsession

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 11:49 am by LynxLee

Mix.fm played this song countless times and yeah, it’s really sappy love song and all that, but it’s pretty sentimental. Still, catchy tune and catchy voice. I like how many times this guy says “Obsession” and “Baby”. LoL

Baby baby what can I do
I need to know that I belong
Belong with you
Yeah with you
Baby baby what can I say
The more you play those wicked games
The more I stay
The more I stay

Teacher be concerned
I want it so bad right now it hurts

Cause I I I’m more than in love
Baby I’m in obsession
I I I’m more than in love
Baby I’m in obsession
I’m in obsession
I’m in obsession

Baby baby what can I do
I need to know that I belong
Belong with you
Yeah with you
Baby baby what can I say
The more you play those wicked games
The more I stay
The more I stayTeacher be concerned
I want it so bad right now it hurts

Cause I I I’m more than in love
Baby I’m in obsession
I I I’m more than in love
Baby I’m in obsession
I’m in obsession
I’m in obsession

Baby baby don’t make me beg
I only want to give up air
Breathe you instead
You instead
Baby baby just ring the bell
And I’ll be staying after class
Under your spell
Yeah, your spell

Teacher be concerned
I don’t think my lesson’s been learned

Cause I I I’m more than in love
Baby I’m in obsession
I I I’m more than in love
Baby I’m in obsession

Baby this ain’t love
It’s obsession

Baby this ain’t love
It’s obsession

Cause I I I’m more than in love
Baby I’m in obsession
I I I’m more than in love
Baby I’m in obsession

Conor Maynard & Ebony Rhianna Day – Next To You (Cover)

Posted in Dedication, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , , , , at 9:10 am by LynxLee

No disrespect to Chris Brown & Justin Bieber, but these two artists (as per title) DESERVED the recognition and spotlight.

To be rather frank, I love the commercial track Justin Bieber and Chris Brown has released, but I keep thinking of this song in such a soft tone, slow flow-y motion to it. Conor Maynard and Ebony Rhianna Day in YouTube did exactly what I had imagined and that’s why I’m featuring them in this blog.

Absolutely lovely, and indeed a nice fresh feel to it. Cheers for the creation of this awesome song and the incredible cover.

This blog post is dedicated to my baby!

p.s. I personally tailored the lyrics (below) to their YouTube video song/music.

Conor & Ebony - Next To You

And baby, everything that I have is yours,
You will never go cold or hungry.
I’ll be there when you’re insecure,
Let you know that you’re always lovely.
Girl, ’cause you are the only thing that I got right now.

If you had my child,
You would make my life complete.

Just to have your eyes on a little me,
That’d be mine forever.

One day when the sky is falling,
I’ll be standing right next to you,
Right next to you.
Nothing will ever come between us,
I’ll be standing right next to you,
Right next to you.


[Conor]
You’ve got that smile,
That only heaven can make.
I pray to God everyday,
That you keep that smile.

[Ebony]
You are my dream,
There’s not a thing I won’t do.
I’ll give my life up for you,
You are my dream.

[Bridge]
And baby, everything that I have is yours,
You will never go cold or hungry.
I’ll be there when you’re insecure,
Let you know that you’re always lovely.

[Conor]
Girl, ’cause you are the only thing that I got right now.

[Chorus]
[Conor]
One day when the sky is falling,
I’ll be standing right next to you,
Right next to you.
[Ebony]
Nothing will ever come between us,
I’ll be standing right next to you,
Right next to you.

[Conor]
If you had my child,
You would make my life complete.
Just to have your eyes on a little me,
[Ebony]
That’d be mine forever.

[Bridge]
And baby, everything that I have is yours
You will never go cold or hungry
I’ll be there when you’re insecure
Let you know that you’re always lovely

[Ebony]
Boy, ’cause you are the only thing that I got right now

[Chorus]
One day when the sky is falling,
I’ll be standing right next to you,
Right next to you. Ooohooh
Nothing will ever come between us,
I’ll be standing right next to you,
Right next to you.Stand by my side, side, side
Stand by my side
Oohh ooohh oooh ooohh

Eminem – Not Afraid

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 1:39 am by LynxLee

Malaysia is having a peaceful rally / gathering today (9th July 2011 – 2pm) at Stadium Merdeka.

The reason is simple; to demand the electoral roll be cleaned, that the postal voting system be reformed, that indelible ink be used, a minimum 21 day campaign period be instated, free and fair access to media for all be provided, public institutions be strengthened, and for corruption as well as dirty politics to be stopped.

Btw, for those who doesn’t understand Malay, “Bersih” is “Clean” in literal translation.

What striked me to how important this really is involves the “ridiculous” idea of 88 voters being in one small house, some “phantom / ghost” voters aging over 100 years old and so on.
Reference: MalaysiaKini – YouTube

Surely we all know how much discomforting it can be here in Malaysia. It’s not only in the open, it’s generally known; but kinda “controlled”. Just do a quick YouTube search on Malaysia and it’s political situation. A blind man can see it. More over the news of inconsistent decisions made these few days are simply disturbing and worrisome.

Here’s a track by Eminem that will help motivate for this very situation and I bid all the rally members tomorrow a safe mission and God Bless you all. We truly appreciate it.

Concise overview here on the 9th July March –> inbaraj.com

For more details, go to Bersih 2.0 and MalaysiaKini.com.

I’m not afraid (I’m not afraid)
To take a stand (to take a stand)
Everybody (everybody)
Come take my hand (come take my hand)
We’ll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just lettin you know that, you’re not alone
Holla if you feel like you’ve been down the same road (same road)


Okay quit playing with the scissors and shit, and cut the crap
I shouldn’t have to rhyme these words in the rhythm for you to know it’s a rap
You said you was king, you lied through your teeth, for that
Fuck your feelings, instead of gettin crowned you’re gettin capped

And I just can’t keep living this way
So starting today, I’m breaking out of this cage

I’m standing up, I’ma face my demons
I’m manning up, I’ma hold my ground
I’ve had enough, now I’m so fed up
Time to put my life back together right now! (now)


[Chorus:]
I’m not afraid (I’m not afraid)
To take a stand (to take a stand)
Everybody (everybody)
Come take my hand (come take my hand)
We’ll walk this road together, through the storm
Whatever weather, cold or warm
Just lettin you know that, you’re not alone
Holla if you feel like you’ve been down the same road (same road)

[Intro (during Chorus):]
Yeah, it’s been a ride
I guess I had to, go to that place, to get to this one
Now some of you, might still be in that place
If you’re trying to get out, just follow me
I’ll get you there

You could try and read my lyrics off of this paper before I lay ’em
But you won’t take the sting out these words before I say ’em
Cause ain’t no way I’ma let you stop me from causin mayhem
When I say I’ma do somethin I do it,
I don’t give a damn what you think,
I’m doin this for me, so fuck the world
Feed it beans, it’s gassed up, if it thinks it’s stoppin me
I’ma be what I set out to be, without a doubt undoubtedly
And all those who look down on me I’m tearin down your balcony
No if ands or buts, don’t try to ask him why or how can he
From “Infinite” down to the last “Relapse” album
he’s still shittin, whether he’s on salary paid hourly
Until he bows out or he shits his bowels out of him
Whichever comes first, for better or worse
He’s married to the game, like a fuck you for Christmas
His gift is a curse, forget the Earth, he’s got the urge
to pull his dick from the dirt, and fuck the whole universe

[Chorus]

Okay quit playing with the scissors and shit, and cut the crap
I shouldn’t have to rhyme these words in the rhythm for you to know it’s a rap
You said you was king, you lied through your teeth, for that
Fuck your feelings, instead of gettin crowned you’re gettin capped
And to the fans, I’ll never let you down again, I’m back
I promise to never go back on that promise, in fact
Let’s be honest, that last “Relapse” CD was ehhh
Perhaps I ran them accents into the ground
Relax, I ain’t goin back to that now
All I’m tryin to say is get back, click-clack, blaow
Cause I ain’t playin around
It’s a game called circle and I don’t know how, I’m way too up to back down
But I think I’m still tryin to figure this crap out
Thought I had it mapped out but I guess I didn’t, this fuckin black cloud
still follows, me around but it’s time to exorcise these demons
These motherfuckers are doin jumpin jacks now!

[Chorus]

And I just can’t keep living this way
So starting today, I’m breaking out of this cage
I’m standing up, I’ma face my demons
I’m manning up, I’ma hold my ground
I’ve had enough, now I’m so fed up
Time to put my life back together right now! (now)

It was my decision to get clean, I did it for me
Admittedly, I probably did it subliminally
for you, so I could come back a brand new me you helped see me through
And don’t even realize what you did, believe me you
I been through the ringer, but they could do little to the middle finger
I think I got a tear in my eye, I feel like the king of
my world, haters can make like bees with no stingers
and drop dead, no more beef flingers
No more drama from now on, I promise
to focus solely on handlin my responsibilities as a father
So I solemnly swear to always treat this roof, like my daughters
and raise it, you couldn’t lift a single shingle on it!
Cause the way I feel, I’m strong enough to go to the club
or the corner pub, and lift the whole liquor counter up
Cause I’m raising the bar
I’d shoot for the moon but I’m too busy gazin at stars
I feel amazing and I’m

[Chorus]

Nicki Minaj – Super Bass

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 8:20 am by LynxLee

This song was pretty hot when Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez decided to cover it over the radio station and behind the scenes:

The music video is a full color candy and I think this track is just as good as anyone says it is. The hook, chorus and lyrical content are awesome!

This post has a good hint on my near future, see if anyone can guess it? =P

Beating like a drum and it’s coming your way

Boom, badoom, boom bass?

This one is for the boys with the boomin’ system
Top down, AC with the coolin’ system
When he come up in the club, he be blazin’ up
Got stacks on deck like he savin’ up
And he ill, he real, he might got a deal
He pop bottles and he got the right kind of build
He cold, he dope, he might sell coke
He always in the air, but he never fly coach
He a muthafuckin trip, trip, sailor of the ship, ship
When he make it drip, drip kiss him on the lip, lip
That’s the kind of dude I was lookin’ for
And yes you’ll get slapped if you’re lookin’ ho

I said, excuse me you’re a hell of a guy
I mean my, my, my, my you’re like pelican fly
I mean, you’re so shy and I’m loving your tie

Boom, badoom, boom, yeah that’s that super bass

This one is for the boys in the Polos
Entrepreneur niggas in the moguls
He could ball with the crew, he could solo
But I think I like him better when he dolo

And I think I like him better with the fitted cap on

He ain’t even gotta try to put the mac on
He just gotta give me that look, when he give me that look
Then the panties comin’ off, off, unh

Excuse me, you’re a hell of a guy
You know I really got a thing for American guys
I mean, sigh, sickenin’ eyes
I can tell that you’re in touch with your feminine side, oh

Somebody please tell him who the eff I is
I am Nicki Minaj, I mack them dudes up
Back coupes up, and chuck the deuce up
