Ed Sheeran – I See Fire

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 4:04 pm by LynxLee

I woke up today, turned on MTV and this track was playing. I get lost, into a comfortable misty mountain. Love this track and the artist. Watch the first video to see how hard it was for him to sing this track correctly. Second video shows a very nice music video incorporating the movie as well. I love the lyrics as well.

There’s frustration of inactivity inside me. This track just makes the feeling stronger, in a good way.

And if the night is burning
I will cover my eyes
For if the dark returns
Then my brothers will die
And as the sky is falling down
It crashed into this lonely town
And with that shadow upon the ground
I hear my people screaming out

Now I see fire
Inside the mountains
I see fire
Burning the trees
I see fire
Hollowing souls
I see fire
Blood in the breeze


Oh, misty eye of the mountain below
Keep careful watch of my brothers’ souls
And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke
Keep watching over Durin’s sons

If this is to end in fire
Then we should all burn together
Watch the flames climb high into the night

Calling out father oh
Stand by and we will
Watch the flames burn auburn on
The mountain side high

And if we should die tonight
Then we should all die together
Raise a glass of wine for the last time

Calling out father oh
Prepare as we will
Watch the flames burn auburn on
The mountain side
Desolation comes upon the sky

Now I see fire
Inside the mountain
I see fire
Burning the trees
And I see fire
Hollowing souls
I see fire
Blood in the breeze
And I hope that you remember me

Oh, should my people fall
Then surely I’ll do the same
Confined in mountain halls
We got too close to the flame

Calling out father oh
Hold fast and we will
Watch the flames burn auburn on
The mountain side
Desolation comes upon the sky

Now I see fire
Inside the mountain
I see fire
Burning the trees
I see fire
Hollowing souls
I see fire
Blood in the breeze
And I hope that you remember me

And if the night is burning
I will cover my eyes
For if the dark returns
Then my brothers will die
And as the sky is falling down
It crashed into this lonely town
And with that shadow upon the ground
I hear my people screaming out

Now I see fire
Inside the mountains
I see fire
Burning the trees
I see fire
Hollowing souls
I see fire
Blood in the breeze

I see fire (oh you know I saw a city burning) (fire)
And I see fire (feel the heat upon my skin, yeah) (fire)
And I see fire (uh-uh-uh-uh) (fire)
And I see fire burn auburn on the mountain side

Paul Davis – I Go Crazy

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

These oldies just makes me melt. Just listen to that voice, that instruments in the background – such gentleness. I like the lyrics too.
Sometimes we think back into the past to understand why we are the way we are, and I think that’s just part of life.


I go crazy
When I look in your eyes I still go crazy
No my heart just can’t hide that old feelin’ inside
Way deep down inside
Oh baby, you know when I look in your eyes I go crazy

Hello girl it’s been awhile
Guess you’ll be glad to know
That I’ve learned how to laugh and smile
Getting over you was slow
They say, “Old lovers can be good friends”
But I never thought I’d really see you
I’d really see you again

I go crazy
When I look in your eyes I still go crazy
No my heart just can’t hide that old feelin’ inside
Way deep down inside
Oh baby, you know when I look in your eyes I go crazy

You say, he satisfies your mind
Tells you all of his dreams
I know how much that means to you
I realize that I was blind
Just when I thought I was over you
I see your face and it just ain’t true
No it just ain’t true

I go crazy
When I look in your eyes I still go crazy
That old flame comes alive, it starts burning inside
Way deep down inside
Oh baby, you know when I look in your eyes I go crazy

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, I go crazy
You know when I look in your eyes I go crazy
No my heart just can’t hide that old feelin’ inside
Way deep down inside
I go crazy

Frankie Valli – My Eyes Adored You

Posted in Lyrics, Song Comment tagged at 3:50 am by LynxLee

‘Tis the feeling of adoring someone from a far, knowing you’re too busy to love someone like that person and growing separate ways. Everyone sometimes feel that same way, thinking of “What ifs” and how it may change your life. Knowing that you are in the comfort of the feeling of a love that you left behind, and that possibly it’s for the best.

My wife liked this song a lot, so I thought of posting it up. As previously mentioned, we went to watch Jersey Boys in Malaysia and their songs still stuck in our heads.


My eyes adored ya
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored ya
Like a million miles away from me you couldn’t see how I adored ya
So close, so close and yet so far

CHORUS
My eyes adored ya
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored ya

Like a million miles away from me you couldn’t see how I adored ya
So close, so close and yet so far

Carried your books from school
Playin’ “make-believe you’re married to me”
You were fifth-grade, I was sixth
When we came to be
Walkin’ home every day over Barnegat Bridge and Bay
Till we grew into the me and you
Went our separate ways

CHORUS

Headed for city lights
Climbed the ladder up to fortune and fame
I worked my fingers to the bone
Made myself a name
Funny I seemed to find
That no matter how the years unwind
Still I reminisce ’bout the girl I miss
And the love I left behind

CHORUS

(My eyes adored ya)
All my life I will remember
(Though I never laid a hand on you)
How warm and tender we were way back then, whoa, whoa, baby
(Like a million miles away from me you couldn’t see how I adored ya)
Oh, the feeling, sad regrets
(So close, so close and yet so far)
I know I won’t ever forget ya, my childhood friend

(My eyes adored ya)
(Though I never laid a hand on you)
(My eyes adored ya)
(Like a million miles away from me you couldn’t see how I adored ya)

FADE
So close, so close and yet so far

The Four Seasons – December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 1:27 am by LynxLee

My wife and I went to watch Jersey Boys in Malaysia last night and it was phenomenal. (then again, I’ve always been a musical kinda guy) We had a great time watching them perform and the production was great as well.

Did you know the song “Grease” was from The Four Seasons? Did you know Frankie Valli (The Four Seasons Frontman) still sings today? Do you know “Can’t take my eyes off you” is their original song?

Frankly, I like the Jersey accent. It’s got that rough tone to it. I like how they told the story and I felt like I know them well already whilst keeping it so entertaining.

Btw, I’ve opened up a new blog with my wife. Do drop by. I’ve wrote a review on the musical as well at Unitedesires.com

Have A Good Night! (Oh What a Night!)

December_1963_oh_what_a_nightOh, what a night
You know, I didn’t even know her name
But I was never gonna be the same
What a lady, what a night

Oh, what a night
Hypnotizing, mesmerizing me
She was everything I dreamed she’d be
Sweet surrender, what a night

Oh, what a night
Late December, back in ’63
What a very special time for me
As I remember, what a night

Oh, what a night
You know, I didn’t even know her name
But I was never gonna be the same
What a lady, what a night

Oh, I
I got a funny feeling when she walked in the room
Hey, my
As I recall, it ended much too soon

Oh, what a night
Hypnotizing, mesmerizing me
She was everything I dreamed she’d be
Sweet surrender, what a night

And I felt a rush like a rolling bolt of thunder
Spinning my head around and taking my body under
Oh, what a night

Oh, I
Got a funny feeling when she walked in the room
Hey, my
As I recall, it ended much too soon

Oh, what a night
Why’d it take so long to see the light?
Seemed so wrong, but now it seems so right
What a lady, what a night

Oh, I felt a rush like a rolling bolt of thunder
Spinning my head around and taking my body under
Oh, what a night (Do do do do do, do do do do)
Oh, what a night (Do do do do do, do do do do)
Oh, what a night (Do do do do do, do do do do)
Oh, what a night (Do do do do do, do do do do)
Oh, what a night (Do do do do do, do do do do)
Oh, what a night (Do do do do do, do do do do)
Oh, what a night (Do do do do do, do do do do)

Tina Arena – You Set Fire To My Life

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , at 11:35 pm by LynxLee

Sometimes when life gets you bored, and you feel like you don’t know what to do or feel like you need to do more; your fire isn’t strong – you’ve lost a certain passion that you may have all these while. I think this song means exactly that, it’s about inspiration and the feel of love.

Every time I called you lost and down
It’s in your voice I find hallowed ground
You say you love me like the wall surrounds
You make me light up the room like I’ve just been found
Light up the room like I’ve just been found

You set fire to my life
Oh oh oh oh oh
And the feeling remains forever young
Oh oh oh oh oh
Whether will you feel the same
When I’m older, I’m living the moment
If everything was gone tomorrow
You set fire to my life
You set fire to my life now

Falling in love with you is coming home
You’re always there although I’m mostly gone
You Took my hand and then you let me leave
You said
Go light up the room and so that what’s I did
Light up the room and so that what’s I did

Every time I called you lost and down
It’s in your voice I find hallowed ground
You say you love me like the wall surrounds
You make me light up the room like I’ve just been found
Light up the room like I’ve just been found

You set fire to my life
Oh oh oh oh oh
And the feeling remains forever young
Oh oh oh oh oh
Whether will you feel the same
When I’m older, I’m living the moment
If everything was gone tomorrow
You set fire to my life
You set fire to my life now

I want to tell you but it’s not enough
You gave me freedom for the two of us
It’s so easy to let go these days
A love like this I know we’re here to stay
I wouldn’t have it any other way

You set fire to my life
Oh oh oh oh oh
And the feeling remains forever young
Oh oh oh oh oh
Whether will you feel the same
When I’m older, I’m living the moment
If everything was gone tomorrow
You set fire to my life
You set fire to my life now

Let the rain fall down
Down down down
Let the fire burn all around you and me

You set fire to my life
Oh oh oh oh oh
And the feeling remains forever young
Oh oh oh oh oh
Whether will you feel the same
When I’m older, I’m living the moment
If everything was gone tomorrow
You set fire to my life
You set fire to my life now

Every time I called you lost and down
It’s in your voice I find hallowed ground

Clean Bandit ft. Jess Glynne – Rather Be

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

I heard this on FlyFM while trying to relax at work. Gotta love the fun you feel from the music.


It’s easy being with you, sacred simplicity.
As long as we’re together, there’s no place I’d rather be
With every step we take, Kyoto to the bay, Strolling so casually,
We’re different and the same
Get you another name
Switch up the battery

If you gave me a chance
I would take it
It’s a shot in the dark
But I’ll make it
Know with all of your heart
You can’t shake me
When I am with you
There’s no place I’d rather be.

We’re a thousand miles from comfort, We have travelled land and sea,
But as long as you are with me, There’s no place I’d rather be.

I would wait forever, Exalted in the scene,
As long as I am with you, My heart continues to beat.

With every step we take, Kyoto to the bay, Strolling so casually,
We’re different and the same
Get you another name
Switch up the battery

If you gave me a chance
I would take it
It’s a shot in the dark
But I’ll make it
Know with all of your heart
You can’t shake me
When I am with you
There’s no place I’d rather be.

No no no no no
No place I’d rather be

We set out on a mission to find our inner peace Make it everlasting
So nothing’s incomplete

It’s easy being with you, sacred simplicity.
As long as we’re together, there’s no place I’d rather be
With every step we take, Kyoto to the bay, Strolling so casually,
We’re different and the same
Get you another name
Switch up the battery

If you gave me a chance
I would take it
It’s a shot in the dark
But I’ll make it
Know with all of your heart
You can’t shake me
When I am with you
There’s no place I’d rather be.

No no no no no
No place I’d rather be
When I am with you
There’s no place I’d rather be
