Wicked (Broadway Musical) – For Good

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , at 7:00 pm by LynxLee

A very touching track from Wicked, The Broadway Musical. We’re (my wife and I) probably in the Grand Theater of Marina Bay Sands in Singapore right now and awaiting the curtains to open up. (Yes, I scheduled it to post at 7pm)

=D Enjoy!!

I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you:

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good


ELPHABA
I’m limited:
Just look at me – I’m limited
And just look at you –
You can do all I couldn’t do, Glinda
So now it’s up to you
(spoken) For both of us
(sung) Now it’s up to you:

GLINDA
I’ve heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don’t know if I believe that’s true
But I know I’m who I am today
Because I knew you:

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

ELPHABA
It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You’ll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend:
Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
But because I knew you:

GLINDA
Because I knew you:

BOTHI have been changed for good

ELPHABA
And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the things I’ve done you blame me for

GLINDA
But then, I guess we know
There’s blame to share

BOTH
And none of it seems to matter anymore

GLINDA ELPHABA
Like a comet pulled Like a ship blown
From orbit as it Off it’s mooring
Passes a sun, like By a wind off the
A stream that meets Sea, like a seed
A boulder, half-way Dropped by a
Through the wood Bird in the wood

BOTH
Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better?
I do believe I have been changed for the better?

GLINDA
And because I knew you:
ELPHABA
Because I knew you:

BOTH
Because I knew you:
I have been changed for good.

Wicked (Broadway Musical) – Dancing Through Life

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , at 7:00 am by LynxLee

I love this track. Especially Norbert Leo Butz version. We’re taking a bus to Singapore to watch Wicked right now. We can’t wait! Will update another good song when the Broadway Musical starts for us to watch! (I’ll schedule it)

Have a good weekend folks!

Dancing through life
skimming the surface
gliding where turf is smooth
life’s more painless
for the brainless
why think too hard?
when it’s so soothing
dancing through life
no need to tough it
when you can sluff it off as i do
nothing matters
but knowing nothing matters
it’s just life
so keep dancing through…


Fiyero:
the trouble with schools is
they always try to teach the wrong
lesson
believe me, i’ve been kicked out
of enough of them to know
they want you to become less callow
less shallow
but i say: “why invite stress in?”
stop studying strife
and learn to life “the unexamined life”

Dancing through life
skimming the surface
gliding where turf is smooth
life’s more painless
for the brainless
why think too hard?
when it’s so soothing
dancing through life
no need to tough it
when you can sluff it off as i do
nothing matters
but knowing nothing matters
it’s just life
so keep dancing through…

dancing through life
swaying and sweeping
and always keeping cool
life is fraughtless
when you’re thoughtless
those who don’t try
never look foolish
dancing through life
mindless and careless
make sure your where less
trouble is rife
woes are fleeting
blows are glancing
when you’re dancing
through life…
(Spoken)
so-whats the most swankified place in town?

Galinda:
(Spoken)
that would be the Ozdust Ballroom

Fiyero:
(Spoken)
sounds perfect.
(Sung)
Let’s go down to the Ozdust Ballroom
we’ll meet there later tonight
we can dance till it lights
find the prettiest girl…
give her a whirl
right on down to the Ozdust Ballroom
come on, follow me
you’ll be happy to be there…

all:
dancing through life
down at the Ozdust…

Fiyero:
if only because dust is what we come to…

All:
nothing matters
but knowing nothing matters

fiyero:
It’s just..

all and fiyero:
life

fiyero:
so keep dancing through…

Boq:
(Spoken)
miss galinda- i hope you’ll save at least one
dance for me. i’ll be right there. waiting. all night

Galinda:
(Spoken)
oh- thats so kind. but you know what would
be even kinder?
(Sung)
See that tragic’ly beautiful girl
the one in the chair
it seems so unfair
we should go on a spree
and not she
gee-
i know someone would be my hero
if that someone were
to go invite her…

Boq:
(Spoken)
well, maybe-i could invite her!

Galinda:
(Spoken)
Oh, Biq, really?
you would do that for me!?

Boq:
(Spoken)
i would do anything for you, miss galinda

Galinda:
(Spoken)
so…

Fiyero:
(Spoken)
so i’ll be picking you up around eight?

Galinda:
(Spoken)
after all-
(Sung)
now that we’ve met one another…

fiyero and Galinda:
its clear- we deserve each other

Galinda:
you’re perfect…

Fiyero:
you’re perfect…

Both:
so we’re perfect together
born to be forever…
dancing through life…

Nessarose:
(Spoken)
Oh elphaba- isn’t it wonderful?
(Sung)
Fin’lly, for this one night
i’m about to have a fun night
with this munchkin boy
galinda found for me
and i only wish there were
something i could do for her
to repay her
elphaba see?
we deserve each other
and galinda helped it come true
we deserve each other
me and boq…
(Spoken)
please elphaba, try to understand…

Elphaba:
i do…

Elphaba:
(Spoken)
galinda listen nessa and i were talking about you
just now-

Galinda:
(Spoken)
and i was just taling about you! I thought you
might want to wear this hat to the party tonight!
(Sung)
It’s really,uh, sharp, don’t you think?
you know- black is this years pink
you deserve each other
this hat and you
you’re both so smart
you deserve each other
so here, out of the goodness of my
heart…

Boq:
listen- nessa-

Nessarose:
yes?

Boq:
uh- nessa
i’ve got something to confess, a
reason why, well-
why i asked you here tonight
now i know it isn’t fair…

Nessarose:
(Spoken)
Oh, Boq, I know why.

Boq:
(Spoken)
You do?

Nessarose:
it’s because i’m in this chair
and you felt sorry for me
well- isn’t that right?

Boq:
(Spoken)
No! NO! It’s because…because…
(Sung)
Because you are so beautiful!

Nessarose:
(Spoken)
Oh, Boq,
(Sung)
i think you’re wonderful!
and we desrve each other
don’t you see, this is our chance?
we deserve each other
Don’t we boq?

Boq:
(Spoken)
you know what?
(Sung)
LETS DANCE…

Nessarose:
(Spoken)
what?

Boq:
Let’s dance!

All:
Dancing through life
down at the ozdust
if only because dust
is what we come to
and the strange thing:
your life could end up changing
whild your dancing
through!

Nicki Minaj ft. Rihanna – Fly

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post at 6:38 am by LynxLee

I’m in a new job today. So I thought this track would be apt. =D

I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

[Verse 1: Nicki Minaj]
I wish today it will rain all day
Maybe that will kinda make the pain go away
Trying to forgive you for abandoning me
Praying but I think I’m still an angel away
Angel away, yeah strange in a way
Maybe that is why I chase strangers away
They got their guns out aiming at me
But I become near when they aiming at me
Me, me, me against them
Me against enemies, me against friends
Somehow they both seem to become one
A sea full of sharks and they all see blood
They start coming and I start rising
Must be surprising, I’m just summising
Win, thrive, soar, higher, higher, higher
More fire

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

[Verse 2: Nicki Minaj]
Everybody wanna try to box me in
Suffocating everytime it locks me in
Paint they own pictures than they crop me in
But I will remain where the top begins
Cause I am not a word, I am not a line
I am not a girl that can every be defined
I am not fly, I am levitation
I represent an entire generation
I hear the criticism loud and clear
That is how I know that the time is near
So we become alive in a time of fear
And I ain’t got no motherfucking time to spare
Cry my eyes out for days upon days
Such a heavy burden placed upon me
But when you go hard your nay’s become yay’s
Yankee Stadium with Jay’s and Kanye’s

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

[Bridge: Nicki Minaj]
Get ready for it
Get ready for it
Get ready for it
I came to win
Get ready for it
Get ready for it
I came to win

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

The Cataracs ft. Dev – Top Of The World

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 11:19 am by LynxLee

After checking out Far East Movement here in Malaysia, I’ve grown a high respect to tracks like this. The electronica sounds of LMFAO, Pitbull, David Guetta, Tiesto, Mike Posner and so on.

Today I’m in my last working day for a company and tomorrow starts a new. That’s why the lyrics below..

t-t-t-to the top of the worlddd
Tell me where you want to go (x4)
Where, you wanna, where you wanna go? (x4)
t-t-t-to the top of the worlddd

it’s the cataracs

Boy you know you get me high
Wont you take me on a ride
Tell me where you want to go
Tell me where you want to go

It’s the cataracs

Yo, Its that dancefloor – 808
She hit me like a 808
Have you all night, vodka straight
Bottles up, you and me
Me and you, on a trip
All night flight, girl lets dip
Lickin my lips im in the zone
And I cant really say what Im sippin on

But You taste good to me
Girls like you make history
Sure does sound like a hit to me
now che-e-e-ck out this beat

[CHORUS]
Now, you got it
you got it goin on, goin on, & on &on &on &on
Boy you know you get me high
Wont you take me on a ride
Tell me where u want to go
Tell me where u want to go
Im your bonnie, you’re my clyde
I’ll be your “ride or die”
Tell me where you want to go
Tell me where you want to go

t-t-t-to the top of the worlddd (x2)

your daddy must have been a drug dealer (why?)
cause you dope
you the bonnie to my clyde, Juliet and romeo
your daddy must have been a drug dealer (why?)
I don’t know, im just saying anything to get me up inside your throat
Is it workin?
Im just playin
Man this bottle got me sayin
I don’t ever wanna lose, lose ya right now

[CHORUS]

t-t-t-to the top of the worlddd
Tell me where you want to go (x4)
Where, you wanna, where you wanna go? (x4)
t-t-t-to the top of the worlddd
it’s the cataracs

Mariah Carey ft. Boyz II Men – One Sweet Day

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , , at 11:52 am by LynxLee

Grandma, I never told you how much I appreciate you taking care of me and my family. Thank you so much.

Never had I imagined
Living without your smile

Feelin’ and knowing you, hear me
It keeps me alive, alive

And I know you’re shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day
Eventually I’ll see you in Heaven

Sorry, I never told you
All I wanted to say

Sorry, I’ve never told you, all I wanted to say
And now it’s too late to hold you
‘Cause you’ve flown away
So far away

Never had I imagined
Living without your smile
Feelin’ and knowing you, hear me
It keeps me alive, alive

And I know you’re shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day
Eventually I’ll see you in Heaven

Darling, I never showed you
Assumed you’d always be there
I, I took your presence for granted
But I always cared
And I miss the love we shared

I know you’re shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day
Picture a little scene from Heaven

Although, the sun will never shine the same
I’ll always look to a brighter day
Yeah, Lord, I know, when I lay me down to sleep
You will always listen as I pray

And I know you’re shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day

And I know you’re shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day

Sorry, I never told you
All I wanted to say

Elton John – Circle Of Life

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 1:29 am by LynxLee

Elton John has been one of the many voices in many heads for a long, long time. He has a voice that just echos in your head if you enjoy the tracks he play. In fact, my name came from Elton John’s track, “Daniel“. My mom’s very “creative”. Anyway..

My wife has been playing this a couple of times after today’s incident. I’ve been having a bad feeling this morning as I awoke, and I was right. My maternal grandma wasn’t feeling so well. Took her to the hospital and well, you probably know the rest.

RIP Grandma

We are always thinking of you. We love you.

Circle of Life
From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There’s more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done

In the Circle of Life
It’s the wheel of fortune
It’s the leap of faith
It’s the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle, the Circle of Life

From the day we arrive on the planet
And blinking, step into the sun
There’s more to be seen than can ever be seen
More to do than can ever be done

Some say eat or be eaten
Some say live and let live
But all are agreed as they join the stampede
You should never take more than you give

(Chorus)
In the Circle of Life
It’s the wheel of fortune
It’s the leap of faith
It’s the band of hope
Till we find our place
On the path unwinding
In the Circle, the Circle of Life

Some of us fall by the wayside
And some of us soar to the stars
And some of us sail through our troubles
And some have to live with the scars

There’s far too much to take in here
More to find than can ever be found
But the sun rolling high
Through the sapphire sky
Keeps the great and small on the endless round

(Chorus repeats)

On the path unwinding
In the Circle, the Circle of Life.

Christina Perri – A Thousand Years

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

Gotta love Christina Perri’s new lovely track. Much better than the pessimistic/hatred Jar of Hearts. (Despite it being quite an artistic track)

Today is my first anniversary with my wife. Just wanted to drop a quick note below as I did in Facebook.

A year it has been – a great start
It’s so unreal – almost life imitating art

Whether any misguide, collide or denied
Thanks for always being by my side

Certainly quite a dream come true
To have found a life partner like you

365 days together legally
Happy First Anniversary!


Heartbeats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer..

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this

One step closer…

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more


Heartbeats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow

One step closer
I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more
Time stands still
Beauty in all she is
I will be brave
I will not let anything take away
What’s standing in front of me
Every breath
Every hour has come to this
One step closer
I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed that I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more
One step closer
One step closer
I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more
And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more
