Birdy – People Help The People

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged , at 9:54 am by LynxLee


People help the people
And if you’re homesick
give me your hand and I’ll hold it
People help the people
And nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain,
Oh and if I had a brain
I’d be cold as a stone and rich as a fool
That turned all those good hearts away

God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
Guess he kissed the girls and made them cry
Those hard-faced queens of misadventure
God knows what is hiding in those weak and sunken lives
Fiery throngs of muted angels
Giving love but getting nothing back, oh

People help the people
And if you’re homesick
give me your hand and I’ll hold it
People help the people
And nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain,
Oh and if I had a brain
I’d be cold as a stone and rich as a fool
That turned all those good hearts away

God knows what is hiding in this world of little consequence
Behind the tears, inside the lies
A thousand slowly dying sunsets
God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
Guess the loneliness came knocking
No one needs to be alone, oh singin’

People help the people
And if you’re homesick,
give me your hand and I’ll hold it
People help the people
Nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain,
Oh and if I had a brain
I’d be cold as a stone and rich as a fool
That turned all those good hearts away

Nah naaah nah nah naaaaahhhhhh oooouuuu
Nah naaah nah nah naaaaahhhhhh oooouuuu

People help the people
And if you’re homesick,
give me your hand and I’ll hold it
People help the people
Nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain,
Oh and if I had a brain
I’d be cold as a stone and rich as a fool
That turned all those good hearts away

Taio Cruz – Diamonds

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 10:09 am by LynxLee

I was driving to work this morning, listening to Hitz.FM while getting some updates on flight #MH370; this track was playing when I was driving up the flyover – thinking to myself how vulnerable he sounds (rather than Rihanna’s).

All I can say is, it’s been quite a long while, but we’re hoping, wishing and praying that there’s a miracle to what’s happening to the mysterious disappearance of this plane. Don’t get me wrong posting this song in relation to the incident/plane, I’m simply expressing that everyone (everyone) wants any lost airplane to survive and we can’t do much but hope from where we are – much like the lyrics – “to find light in the beautiful sea”.

I took the picture below when I was on the flight to the United States, you’ve got to wonder how it’s like to fly every single day in the sky. Even if there’s beautiful sight and places to travel to, it is certainly a toll to the body. Salute to the respected people who flies everyday risking their lives to make things better for all of us.

MH730So shine bright tonight, you and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond

Find light in the beautiful sea
I choose to be happy
You and I, you and I
We’re like diamonds in the sky

You’re a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I’m alive
We’re like diamonds in the sky

I knew that we’d become one right away
Oh, right away
At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays
I saw the life inside your eyes

So shine bright tonight, you and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Palms rise to the universe
As we moonshine and molly*
Feel the warmth, we’ll never die
We’re like diamonds in the sky

You’re a shooting star I see
A vision of ecstasy
When you hold me, I’m alive
We’re like diamonds in the sky

At first sight I felt the energy of sun rays
I saw the life inside your eyes

So shine bright tonight, you and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond

So shine bright tonight, you and I
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky
Eye to eye, so alive
We’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky

Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Oh, yeah
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
Shine bright like a diamond
