Sara Bareilles – I Choose You

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 3:33 pm by LynxLee

Here’s a cute song about.. well, Love. =P

I_Choose_You_by_Sara_Bareilles
There was a time when I would have believed them
If they told me you could not come true
Just love’s illusion
But then you found me and everything changed
And I believe in something again

My whole heart
Will be yours forever
This is a beautiful start
To a lifelong love letter

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you

I choose you

Let the bough break, let it come down crashing
Let the sun fade out to a dark sky
I can’t say I’d even notice it was absent
Cause I could live by the light in your eyesI’ll unfold before you
What I’ve strung together
The very first words
Of a lifelong love letter

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you
(Yeah)

There was a time when I would have believed them
If they told me you could not come true
Just love’s illusion
But then you found me and everything changed
And I believe in something again

My whole heart
Will be yours forever
This is a beautiful start
To a lifelong love letter

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you

We are not perfect
We’ll learn from our mistakes
And as long as it takes
I will prove my love to you

I am not scared of the elements
I am under-prepared, but I am willing
And even better
I get to be the other half of you

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
Yeah
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you
I choose you

Nico & Vinz – In Your Arms

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , at 10:54 am by LynxLee

This track simplifies how I feel sometimes. I’m quite a pessimistic person, I have a feeling like there’s always better person, better situation, better life, better experience, better anything. It’s like you try and try, and you give and give and you’ve given up. Yet, sometimes all we need is to be in the comfort of someone who can lift your spirits up. Make you feel worth living, makes you want to live in the now and look forward to the future – and forget the past (the negative ones). We won’t need a time machine if we are content, happy with our present and know that there’s always a better future awaiting in front of us all.

In-Your-Arms-by-EnvyI feel like moving back
Sometimes it’s hard to dream
The life I chose is past
It’s moving without me
Who doesn’t want a machine so they can go back in time
I don’t know

My time went by too fast
There’s no one left but me
I’ve got a nine to five
And it gets the best of me
This is the life I’m gonna live to the end
But I’m okay

Sometimes I feel like I can’t run, I can’t crawl
And sometimes I feel like I ain’t nothing at all
Life is a journey where you stumble and fall
But I’m okay

I feel like Superman
They gonna remember me
I think I know I can
Who says it’s hard to reach
Who’s gonna stop me on the road to success
I don’t know

They tried to break me down
But I’m still on my feet
This city’s full of life
So why is it hard to breathe
Oh why did God create this world so unfair
I don’t know

Sometimes I feel like I can’t run, I can’t crawl
And sometimes I feel like I ain’t nothing at all
Life is a journey where you stumble and fall
But I’m okay

When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms

I feel like moving back
Sometimes it’s hard to dream
The life I chose is past
It’s moving without me
Who doesn’t want a machine so they can go back in time
I don’t know

My time went by too fast
There’s no one left but me
I’ve got a nine to five
And it gets the best of me
This is the life I’m gonna live to the end
But I’m okay

When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms

Sometimes I feel like I can’t run, I can’t crawl
And sometimes I feel like I ain’t nothing at all
Life is a journey where you stumble and fall
But I’m okay

When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms
Oh oh oh oh oh [x3]
When I lie down in your arms

Maxwell/Kate Bush – This Woman’s Work

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , at 2:41 pm by LynxLee

I’ve just stumbled into this track while listening to some XFactor Contestants. What a great song. I love the tenderness and the lyrics. Totally reminded me of Kevin Michael. The high pitch tender voice and the big afro. Oh what memories. So this track is supposedly about being a mother to an unborn child and from a guy’s point of view.

Merry Christmas!

The lyric of “This Woman’s Work” is about being forced to confront an unexpected and frightening crisis during the normal event of childbirth. Written for the movie She’s Having a Baby,[2] director John Hughes used the song during the film’s dramatic climax, when Jake (Kevin Bacon) learns that the lives of his wife (Elizabeth McGovern) and their unborn child are in danger. As the song plays, we see a montage sequence of flashbacks showing the couple in happier times, intercut with shots of him waiting for news of Elizabeth and their baby’s condition. Bush wrote the song specifically for the sequence, writing from a man’s (Jake’s) viewpoint and matching the words to the visuals which had already been filmed.

maxwellI should be crying but I just can’t let it show, baby
I should be hopin’ but I can’t stop thinkin’
Of all the things we should’ve said that we never said
All the things we should’ve done that we never did
All the things that you wanted from me
All the things that you needed from me
All the things I should’ve given but I didn’t


Pray God you can cope
I’ll stand outside
This woman’s work
This woman’s world
Oh it’s hard on the man
Now his part is over
Now starts the craft of the Father

I know you’ve got a little life in you yet
I know you’ve got a lot of strength left
I know you’ve got a little life in you yet
I know you’ve got a lot of strength left

I should be crying but I just can’t let it show
I should be hoping but I can’t stop thinking
All the things we should’ve said that I never said
All the things we should’ve done but we never did
All the things we should’ve given but I didn’t

Oh, darling, make it go, make it go away

Give me these moments
Give them back to me
Give me your little kiss

Give me your…
I know you have a little life in you yet
Give me your hand, babe
I know you have a lot of strength left
Give me your pretty hand
I know you have a little life in you yet
Oh oh oh
I know you have a lot of strength left

My love child
I know you have a little life in you yet
Whatever you need me
I know you have a lot of strength left
Give me your hand
I know you have a little life in you yet
Give me your hand
I know you have a lot of strength left

I should be crying but I just can’t let it show, baby
I should be hopin’ but I can’t stop thinkin’
Of all the things we should’ve said that we never said
All the things we should’ve done that we never did
All the things that you wanted from me
All the things that you needed from me
All the things I should’ve given but I didn’t

Oh, darling, make it go away, just make it go away

ViLLE BABY feat. Kehv – Changes (Movement of Change)

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , , at 4:39 pm by LynxLee

I got this track literally from Twitter. ViLLE BABY actually dropped me a message (and I’m sure others too) with a link to this and I’ve gotta say, I’m resonating with this track. It’s smooth, great lyrics and clear message delivered. I remember back when I listened to these tracks a lot. It’s been hard to write up these messages because we’re too busy living our lives. We’re better than that, and the problem is – others ain’t the same. How about we do our part to have some changes?

zzzzzzzEMPHASIS

Something you gotta know

There’s gotta be a better way of livin’ then we doin’
And maybe you don’t see it but the world we got is ruined
If you don’t wanna care, ay..
I can’t make ya
I’m just doin’ my part, cause we need some changes

If I can change the world
I’d do it for the kids
Cause growin’ up alone is a hard way to live
And no one understands what it’s like for them
They say it’s every man for himself, but a boy ain’t a man
So what is he supposed to do
No one to teach him
His only examples always tend to deceive him
How’s he gonna learn wrong from right
with all these nonsense
Go with your gut
because we all got a conscience
Ya gotta believe me
I know it ain’t easy

But nothin in life ever worth it could be
We only worried bout now
No one cares for the future
And soon we won’t have one to worry about losin’

Cause this ain’t a game
And we ain’t winnin’ nothing
And money’s the problem that’s causin’ the strugglin’
If ya wanna survive
my brother, you gotta hustle
and you need the brains as much as you need the muscle

everybody say
we need understandin’
nothing is every lasting
changes
changes come and go
How much I’ve to suffer
in this trying times
something you got to know

I see the ways of the world collapse
swear these young girls older by the way that they act
And it’s all because there ain’t a man there to show ’em
how a lady should be treated
they just learnin’ as they goin’
And I know we gotta crawl ‘fore we learn to walk
But we oughta know to think
before we talk
how we goin’ta know we right
if we don’t know if it’s wrong
And for a lesson to be learned
education should be taught

There’s problems in the world we don’t care about solvin’
Cause if we don’t see it
we don’t wanna be bothered
But how you goin’ to ignore when a child is starvin’
And left alone cause somebody just didn’t want ’em
And I ain’t goin to lie, it kinda hurts to be human
When things are beyond our control
then we useless
And ain’t it a shame, ain’t a thang we can do for this
World that was given can be taken until he through wit’ us

everybody say
we need understandin’
nothing is every lasting
changes
changes come and go
How much I’ve to suffer
in this trying times
something you got to know

there’s gotta be a better way than living the way we do
And maybe you don’t see it but the world we got is ruined
If you don’t wanna care, ay..
I can’t make ya
I’m just doin’ my part, cause we need some changes

Mr. Probz – Nothing Really Matters

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 11:57 am by LynxLee

I heard Waves on an Internet radio just a while ago and I can’t stop listening to it. Then I checked out YouTube and Mr. Probz got this video as well. I have to say, this guy has got amazing talent in music. I love it. Can you feel it? Gotta love the care in this track.

mrprobz-nothingreallymattersWhen she’s ok
Then I’m alright
When she’s awake
I’m up all night

And nothing really matters
Nothing really matters
I see her face
And in my mind
I sieze the day
Whenever she’s nearby
It’s like nothing really matters, no
Nothing really matters

She completes me
It’s how she reads me
Right or wrong
It’s so clear she’s
All that I need

All I need yeah



When she’s ok
Then I’m alright
When she’s awake
I’m up all night
And nothing really matters
Nothing really matters
I see her face
And in my mind
I sieze the day
Whenever she’s nearby
It’s like nothing really matters, no
Nothing really matters

She completes me
It’s how she reads me
Right or wrong
It’s so clear she’s
All that I need
All I need yeah

I know what it feels like
I know what it feels like
Swimming through the stars when I see her
And I don’t need air because I breathe her
I know what it feels like
I know what it feels like yeah
I breathe her
Breathe her..

Everytime I see her (2x)

When I’m lost
And need a sign
She leads the way
And I’ll be fine
And nothing really matters
Nothing really matters

She completes me
It’s how she reads me
Right or wrong
It’s so clear she’s
All that I need
All I need yeah

I know what it feels like
I know what it feels like
Swimming through the stars when I see her
And I don’t need air because I breathe her
I know what it feels like
I know what it feels like yeah
I breathe her
Breathe her..

Everytime I see her (4x)

When she’s ok
Then I’m alright
When she’s awake
I’m up all night
And nothing really matters
Nothing really matters

Camryn – LoveSick

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 10:34 am by LynxLee

We sometimes get into that state of mind when we get in love, and everything is beautiful. Then it started to get really.. addictive, really crazy in some way. Jealousy plagues in your mind, Missing that person to the state of dilemma and Unable to think straight. Who says falling in love is easy? It hurts, but probably the easiest way to feel better is to never fall in love again. I believe this is what some of my friends had decided. The excuse was, no one is perfect enough for me. Personally, if you are lovesick – move on. You’ll go through it again eventually. I heard this on the radio and thought I’d share it.

camryn-lovesick-400And I was falling for you
I couldn’t help myself
You hypnotize me
I was under your spell
You got me LoveSick
but now baby I can tell its just a game to you
so baby shame on you

[Verse 1]
I fell for every line on your lips,
only lies
A broken heart in the first degree
I thought we were just fine
should have seen all the signs
they were right in front of me

The way you looked at me
Made it easy to believe
I was blind, but now I see

[Chorus]
And I was falling for you
I couldn’t help myself
You hypnotize me
I was under your spell
You got me LoveSick
but now baby I can tell its just a game to you
so baby shame on you

[Verse 2]
I thought you were the one,
but its all come undone
And now you’re begging me to take you back
Can’t you see? I’ve moved on
all those feelings are gone
There’s no turning back

The way you looked at me
Made it easy to believe
I was blind, but now I see

[Chorus]
And I was falling for you
I couldn’t help myself
You hypnotize me
I was under your spell
You got me LoveSick
but now baby I can tell its just a game to you
so baby shame on you

And I was falling for you
I couldn’t help myself
You hypnotize me
I was under your spell
You got me LoveSick
but now baby I can tell its just a game to you
so baby shame on you

This was just a game to you
You’d never thought you’d lose
You’d never thought you’d-
This was just a game to you
Now the blame’s on you, so shame on you

[Chorus]
And I was falling for you
I couldn’t help myself
You hypnotize me
I was under your spell
You got me LoveSick
but now baby I can tell its just a game to you
so baby shame on you

And I was falling for you
I couldn’t help myself
You hypnotize me
I was under your spell
You got me LoveSick
but now baby I can tell its just a game to you
so shame on you

It was just a game to you
so baby shame on you, shame on you
It was just a game to you
baby shame on you

[Chorus]
And I was falling for you
I couldn’t help myself
You hypnotize me
I was under your spell
You got me LoveSick
but now baby I can tell its just a game to you
so baby shame on you
