For some reason today I’m out of words, so I’ll refer you to genius.com/Coldplay-everglow-lyrics

121d10df6d77519c2737d1a528812333.253x277x90Oh, they say people come, say people go
This particular diamond was extra special
And though you might be gone, and the world may not know
Still I see you, celestial

Like a lion you ran, a goddess you rolled
Like an eagle, you circle, in perfect purple
So how come things move on? How come cars don’t slow?
When it feels like the end of my world
When I should, but I can’t, let you go?

[Chorus 1]
But when I’m cold, cold
Oh, when I’m cold, cold
There’s a light that you give me when I’m in shadow
There’s a feeling you give me, an everglow

[Verse 1]
Oh, they say people come, say people go
This particular diamond was extra special
And though you might be gone, and the world may not know
Still I see you, celestial

Like a lion you ran, a goddess you rolled
Like an eagle, you circle, in perfect purple
So how come things move on? How come cars don’t slow?
When it feels like the end of my world
When I should, but I can’t, let you go?

[Chorus 1]
But when I’m cold, cold
Oh, when I’m cold, cold
There’s a light that you give me when I’m in shadow
There’s a feeling you give me, an everglow

[Verse 2]
Like brothers in blood, sisters who ride
And we swore on that night we’d be friends ’til we die
But the changing of winds, and the way waters flow
Life is short as the falling of snow
And now, I’m gonna miss you, I know

[Chorus 2]
But when I’m cold, cold
In water rolled, salt
I know that you’re always with me and the way you will show
And you’re with me wherever I go
And you give me this feeling, this everglow

[Bridge]
Oh, what I would give for just a moment to hold
Yeah, I live for this feeling, it’s everglow

[Outro]
So if you love someone, you should let them know
Oh, the light that you left me will everglow

Lukas Graham – 7 Years

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , , at 11:15 am by LynxLee

Lukas Graham. I don’t think there’s anyone who can ever sing this song as well and as unique as him. It was playing on the radio for a bit while I was driving and I had to turn up the music because I’m a sucker for these songs.

Personally I know I’m lacking friends. Not just friends, I mean close ones. Those that would visit you when you’re in the hospital with a hanging leg. Sometimes I look back and regret thinking I must’ve done something wrong, but when I look at my family and my wife, kid – I think I did something right. It’s all about that balance, isn’t it?

How will it be like when I’m 60? That’s almost 30 more years to go. I guess we’ll see.

Check out Genius.com where Lukas Graham actually annotated his lyrics.

8e42e8a8f97b3fe60cd5c8bfe2d316fc.400x400x1I’m still learning about life
My woman brought children for me
So I can sing them all my songs
And I can tell them stories
Most of my boys are with me
Some are still out seeking glory
And some I had to leave behind
My brother I’m still sorry

[Chorus 1]
Once I was seven years old my momma told me
Go make yourself some friends or you’ll be lonely
Once I was seven years old[Verse 1]
It was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger
Pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker
By eleven smoking herb and drinking burning liquor
Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure[Chorus 2]
Once I was eleven years old my daddy told me
Go get yourself a wife or you’ll be lonely
Once I was eleven years old

[Verse 2]
I always had that dream like my daddy before me
So I started writing songs, I started writing stories
Something about that glory just always seemed to bore me
Cause only those I really love will ever really know me

[Chorus 3]
Once I was 20 years old, my story got told
Before the morning sun, when life was lonely
Once I was 20 years old

(Lukas Graham!!!)

[Verse 3]
I only see my goals, I don’t believe in failure
Cause I know the smallest voices, they can make it major
I got my boys with me at least those in favor
And if we don’t meet before I leave, I hope I’ll see you later

[Chorus 4]
Once I was 20 years old, my story got told
I was writing about everything, I saw before me
Once I was 20 years old
Soon we’ll be 30 years old, our songs have been sold
We’ve traveled around the world and we’re still roaming
Soon we’ll be 30 years old

[Verse 4]
I’m still learning about life
My woman brought children for me
So I can sing them all my songs
And I can tell them stories
Most of my boys are with me
Some are still out seeking glory
And some I had to leave behind
My brother I’m still sorry

[Bridge]
Soon I’ll be 60 years old, my daddy got 61
Remember life and then your life becomes a better one
I made a man so happy when I wrote a letter once
I hope my children come and visit, once or twice a month

[Chorus 5]
Soon I’ll be 60 years old, will I think the world is cold
Or will I have a lot of children who can warm me
Soon I’ll be 60 years old
Soon I’ll be 60 years old, will I think the world is cold
Or will I have a lot of children who can hold me
Soon I’ll be 60 years old

[Chorus 1 recap]
Once I was seven years old, my momma told me
Go make yourself some friends or you’ll be lonely
Once I was seven years old

Once I was seven years old

Shawn Hook – Sound Of Your Heart

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , , , , , at 10:48 am by LynxLee

There was a post recently about how great it feels to be single and waking up in your home that you own, doing anything that you like. No schedules, no dependencies, no emotions to affect, no rights/wrongs and so on. I found it for your reference.

I read it and my friend (who was married) said that that’s how it feels like and it’s quite addictive. That is something I can’t process for some reason. Addictive to be living independently alone. I watched “Mr. Robot” recently and even hackers get stoned trying to deal with the thought of being alone, psychiatrist too. Maybe it’s how I grown up, maybe it’s just me. I never liked to be alone.

There’s always the fun of affecting people – whether bad or good. Now that’s addicting to me. Sometimes you can’t help but affect someone in a bad way, I don’t think that wrong, I personally think that’s just a different point of view. Try wearing their shoes.. (not literally) Perhaps you might change your mind? Then again, being too dependant on people isn’t as good. I guess in the end of the day, it’s up to us.

We pick the sound we want to hear – some just like the sound of heartbeats.

Shawn_Hook_-_Sound_of_Your_Heart_(Official_Single_Cover)You were my courage
My sword and shield
Grace under pressure
My wall of steel
I was a stone
Weighing us down
You were the angel I chained to the ground
I miss the way you undress
I miss your head on my chest

You showed me heaven
You rang a bell
I played with matches
It hurt like hell
Asleep, awake
You’re all I see
I can’t escape you, can’t set you free
I miss your full moon rising
Catching a breath in silence

[Verse 1]
You were my courage
My sword and shield
Grace under pressure
My wall of steel
I was a stone
Weighing us down
You were the angel I chained to the ground
I miss the way you undress
I miss your head on my chest

[Pre-Chorus]
Can’t stop this bleeding
Can’t stop you leaving
I’m missing the sound of your heart beating

[Chorus]
Baby I’m in love with you
Oh, and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
Baby you were mine to lose
Oh, and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating

[Verse 2]
You showed me heaven
You rang a bell
I played with matches
It hurt like hell
Asleep, awake
You’re all I see
I can’t escape you, can’t set you free
I miss your full moon rising
Catching a breath in silence

[Pre-Chorus]
Can’t stop this bleeding
Can’t stop you leaving
I’m missing the sound of your heart beating

[Chorus]
Baby I’m in love with you
Oh, and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
Baby you were mine to lose
Oh, and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating

[Hook]
(Missing you, missing you)
I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
(Missing you, missing you)
I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
Baby I’m comin, baby I’m comin
Tell me now baby I’ll come running
Baby I’m comin, baby I’m comin
Say the word baby I’ll come running

[Chorus]
Baby I’m in love with you
Oh, and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
Baby you were mine to lose
Oh, and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating

[Outro]
Oh, I’m missing the sound, I’m missing the sound of your beating, beating
I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
Missing you, missing you
Oh and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
Missing you, missing you
Oh, and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
Beating, beating
Oh, I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
