I need ya, I need ya, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now

So don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me down
D-don’t let me down

Crashing, hit a wall

Hurry up now, I need a miracle
Stranded, reaching out

I say your name but you’re not around

I need ya, I need ya, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now

D-don’t let me down

Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down, down, down
Don’t let me down, don’t let me down, down, down

Running out of time
I really thought you were on my side
But now there’s nobody by my side

I need ya, I need ya, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now
So don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me down

Yeah, don’t let me down
Don’t let me down, oh, no
Said don’t let me down
Don’t let me down

Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down, down, down

Troye Sivan – Youth

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged at 9:00 am by LynxLee

I’ve always said that the start of a song is probably the most important part, then comes the verses and chorus. Just like life, I think the start of our lives matter most and then the journey we go through. How does it end? Well, that’ll depend on our start and journey. That being said, it doesn’t matter how it ended – just remember that it may have just changed energies.

Troye_Sivan_-_Youth_(single_art)

What if
What if we run away
What if
What if we left today
What if
We said goodbye to safe and sound
What if
What if we’re hard to find
What if
What if we lost our minds
What if
We let them fall behind, and they’re never found

And when the lights start flashing like a photo booth
And the stars exploding
We’ll be fireproof

What if
What if we run away
What if
What if we left today
What if
We said goodbye to safe and sound
What if
What if we’re hard to find
What if
What if we lost our minds
What if
We let them fall behind, and they’re never found

And when the lights start flashing like a photo booth
And the stars exploding
We’ll be fireproof

My youth
My youth is yours
Trippin’ on skies, sippin’ waterfalls
My youth
My youth is yours
Run away now and forevermore
My youth
My youth is yours
The truth so loud you can’t ignore
My youth, my youth, my youth
My youth is yours

What if
What if we start to drive
What if
What if we close our eyes
What if
We’re speeding through red lights into paradise
‘Cause we’ve no time for getting old
Mortal bodies, timeless souls
Cross your fingers, here we go
Oh, oh, oh

And when the lights start flashing like a photo booth
And the stars exploding
We’ll be fireproof

My youth
My youth is yours
Trippin’ on skies, sippin’ waterfalls
My youth
My youth is yours
Run away now and forevermore
My youth
My youth is yours
The truth so loud you can’t ignore
My youth, my youth, my youth
My youth is yours
My youth is yours

My youth
My youth is yours
Trippin’ on skies, sippin’ waterfalls
My youth
My youth is yours
Run away now and forevermore
My youth
My youth is yours
The truth so loud you can’t ignore
My youth, my youth, my youth
My youth is yours
Oh, oh, oh
My youth is yours
Oh, oh, oh
My youth is yours

Evans Blue – Beyond The Stars

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged at 6:00 am by LynxLee

I can’t stand silence, that’s probably why I bury my ears in music. I don’t like being in an environment where everyone just doesn’t say anything – especially when they say what they don’t mean.

At some point in my life, I feel like migrating over to Canada – where this band is from. I think it would be cool (winter, get it?) being there just listening to these guys perform. It’ll be somewhat a dream come true to visit or experience being there.

Keep playing those music in your head – perhaps one day your dreams would come true. Indeed that would be quite something. Especially if you really really want it to happen.

Probably feeling Beyond The Stars.

maxresdefaultKeep your silence or
Reach for life beyond the stars
Save your mercy
For someone who needs it more
I’m the guilty
All the feelings come crashing down on me
I’m taking you with me

Help me
I’m losing on my own
Locked up in a cage
And not alone
Show me a way to keep
The hate from taking
Control I’m breaking
I’m bleeding on the inside
The fear before the fall
I’m 6 feet above the next time
I lose it all!

Help me
Surrender my control
Searching for the death of my own soul
I bleed, but far beneath
My cover keeps the red from leaking
I’m bleeding on the inside
The fear before the fall
I’m 6 feet above the next time
I lose it all!

Keep your silence or
Reach for life beyond the stars
Save your mercy
For someone who needs it more
I’m the guilty
All the feelings come crashing down on me
I’m taking you with me

Help me
I’m losing on my own
Locked up in a cage
And not alone
Show me a way to keep
The hate from taking
Control I’m breaking
I’m bleeding on the inside
The fear before the fall
I’m 6 feet above the next time
I lose it all!

Taking you with me
I’m the guilty
All the feelings
Come crashing down on me
I’m taking you with me
I’m taking you with me

30 Seconds To Mars – A Beautiful Lie

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged at 6:00 pm by LynxLee

folderIt’s a beautiful lie
It’s the perfect denial
Such a beautiful lie to believe in
So beautiful, beautiful it makes me

Lie awake in bed at night
And think about your life
Do you want to be different?
Try to let go of the truth
The battles of your youth
‘Cause this is just a game

[Chorus:]
It’s a beautiful lie
It’s the perfect denial
Such a beautiful lie to believe in
So beautiful, beautiful it makes me

It’s time to forget about the past
To wash away what happened last
Hide behind an empty face
Don’t ask too much, just say
‘Cause this is just a game

[Chorus]

(Oh Oh
The end of the world)

Everyone’s looking at me
I’m running around in circles, baby
A quiet desperation’s building higher
I’ve got to remember this is just a game

(So beautiful, beautiful
It’s a beautiful lie
So beautiful, beautiful
It’s a beautiful lie
So beautiful, beautiful…)

[Chorus]

Evans Blue – The Pursuit

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged at 3:00 pm by LynxLee

619w-S+q5RLCos they’re still in you too low
All the voices you don’t know
And they’re still in you too low
All the choices that you chose
Leave you nothing left to hold
When you’re nothing it’s a good time to remind you of one thing
The pursuit begins when this portrayal of life, ends

You lived a time of lies until you told me everything
I hope we make amends, but you don’t
Life taught you how to fly and then you flew away from me
You left me haunted, star the ending image of the one

Cos they’re still in you too low
All the voices you don’t know
And they’re still in you too low
All the choices that you chose

You harbored all the wasted sighs to define the quiet drone
I’ll let you start again, but you won’t
I saw you pray for change and then you walked all over me
You wanted what you could not have and now you are alone

Cos they’re still in you too low
All the voices you don’t know
And they’re still in you too low
All the choices that you chose
Make the voices tell me who you are, and who I am to be

Are you alone wherever you are tonight?
I’m alone when you’re right here
But I’m still in you somehow
I never left at all
Now I’m still in you too low
So my voice is all you know

Cos they’re still in you too low
All the voices you don’t know
And they’re still in you too low
All the choices that you chose
Leave you nothing left to hold
When you’re nothing it’s a good time to remind you of one thing
The pursuit begins when this portrayal of life, ends

Evanescence – Tourniquet

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , at 7:03 pm by LynxLee

It’s been almost years since I listened to heavy rock bands like Evans Blue, Parabelle and the likes. This track, I’ve stumbled upon a karaoke machine application listening to someone singing this with a soulful feel to it along with pure angst. It’s almost like love and hate all in one. It’s dark music for sure, but sometimes this expression is comforting – particularly when someone makes you wanna scream inside (because you can’t scream for real).

It’s like a silent scream in your head – only you know how loud it could get. Perhaps I’m slightly insane, perhaps I’m normal; but when you get to the point where you start checking on yourself or others almost every few hours (or minutes or seconds) – it gets overwhelming. Looking in the mirror, measuring your heart-rate, your weight, your journal (sanity), your words you typed, your emails, your sms, your conversation, your clothing, your hair, your face, your actions, your reactions, your bank account, your floor, your car, your phone – I mean; you get my point.

You ran through that maze, but you didn’t really want to. You went to visit that friend/person, but you didn’t really want to. You did everything right, but in time – it turns out wrong. You mean what you said and did at that moment in time, but when situations changed – you knew it was what you meant then, but not anymore now. Dream and Desire – Warning and Withdrawals. Come and Go, Pick and Let Go. It’s not all simple and direct, isn’t it? You’re attractive and not up to your own standards at the same time.

Why/How do we keep doing this? Sometimes letting it all go and going for a swim or a run, or spending some time with your friends or family may be all you could rely on. To avoid being hurt or disappointed, you just stop doing what it is you do. Some point in time you wonder if anyone cares?! I mean, really does.

Show of hands – how many people you know would be there for you (and be sincerely honest and caringly love you) no matter what? Is that realistic?

It’s better detach from everything sometimes and just – just – BE. Maybe that’s how it feels like when you’re stuck for 3 months without anything to hold on to – you’d need to fully depend on yourself. Perhaps that’s normal – but I don’t believe that.

My God, I need help. Cleanse me. I feel like I’m somewhat numb from everything overwhelming. Perhaps I’ve asked for this, but certainly I can’t handle it alone.

But at the same time, I don’t really want your company. Not anymore.

Maybe.

hqdefault (1)Do you remember me?
Lost for so long
Will you be on the other side
Or will you forget me?
I’m dying, praying, bleeding and screaming
Am I too lost to be saved?
Am I too lost?

[Verse 1]
I tried to kill my pain
But only brought more
So much more
I lay dying
And I’m pouring crimson regret and betrayal
I’m dying, praying, bleeding and screaming
Am I too lost to be saved?
Am I too lost?

[Chorus]
My God my tourniquet
Return to me salvation [x2]

[Verse 2]
Do you remember me?
Lost for so long
Will you be on the other side
Or will you forget me?
I’m dying, praying, bleeding and screaming
Am I too lost to be saved?
Am I too lost?

[Chorus]
{Screams: I WANT TO DIE!!!}
[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
My wounds cry for the grave
My soul cries for deliverance
Will I be denied Christ
Tourniquet
My suicide

Kris Allen ft Pat Monahan – The Truth

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged , , at 3:27 pm by LynxLee

hqdefaultTrying to be perfect
Trying not to let you down
Honesty is honestly
The hardest thing for me right now
While the floors underneath our feet
Are crumbling, the walls we built together tumbling
I still stand here holding up the roof
Cause it’s easier than telling the truth

Lying next to you
Wishing I could disappear
Let you fall asleep
And vanish out into thin air

It’s the elephant in the room
And we pretend that we don’t see it
It’s the avalanche that looms above our heads
And we don’t believe it

Trying to be perfect
Trying not to let you down
Honesty is honestly
The hardest thing for me right now
While the floors underneath our feet
Are crumbling, the walls we built together tumbling
I still stand here holding up the roof
Cause it’s easier than telling the truth

I still keep your photographs
I remember how we used to laugh
I can keep on losing sleep
If you’re okay with being torn in half

It’s the elephant in the room
And we pretend that we don’t see it
It’s the avalanche that looms above our heads
And we don’t believe it

Trying to be perfect
Trying not to let you down
Honesty is honestly
The hardest thing for me right now
While the floors underneath our feet
Are crumbling, the walls we built together tumbling
I still stand here holding up the roof
Cause it’s easier than telling the truth

Stop ignoring that our hearts are mourning
And let the rain come in
Stop pretending that it’s not ending
And let the end begin, oh yeah…

Trying to be perfect
Trying not to let you down
Honesty is honestly
The hardest thing for me right now, yeah
While the floors underneath our feet
Are crumbling, the walls we built together tumbling
I still stand here holding up the roof
Cause it’s easier than telling the truth
It’s easier than telling the truth

Fire Inc – Tonight Is What It Means To Be Young

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged , at 4:34 pm by LynxLee

1745318

I’ve got a dream when the darkness is over
We’ll be lyin’ in the rays of the sun
But it’s only a dream and tonight is for real
You’ll never know what it means
But you’ll know how it feels
It’s gonna be over (over)
Before you know it’s begun
(Before you know it’s begun)

It’s all we really got tonight
Stop your cryin’ hold on (tonight)
Before you know it it’s gone (tonight)
Tonight is what it means to be young
Tonight is what it means to be young

Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin …(Tonight is what it means to be young…)
Let the fire be started …(Before you know it it’s gone…)
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted

I’ve got a dream ’bout an angel on the beach
And the perfect waves are starting to come
His hair is flying out in ribbons of gold
And his touch has got the power to stunI’ve got a dream ’bout an angel in the forest
Enchanted by the edge of a lake
His body’s flowing in the jewels alive
And the earth below is starting to shakeBut I don’t see any angels in the city
I don’t hear any holy choirs sing
And if I can’t get an angel
I can still get a boy
And a boy’d be the next best thing
The next best thing to an angel
A boy’d be the next best thingI’ve got a dream ’bout a boy in a castle
And he’s dancing like a cat on the stairs
He’s got the fire of a prince in his eyes
And the thunder of a drum in his earsI’ve got a dream ’bout a boy on a star
Lookin’ down upon the rim of the world
He’s there all alone and dreamin’ of someone like me
I’m not an angel but at least I’m a girl

I’ve got a dream when the darkness is over
We’ll be lyin’ in the rays of the sun
But it’s only a dream and tonight is for real
You’ll never know what it means
But you’ll know how it feels
It’s gonna be over (over)
Before you know it’s begun
(Before you know it’s begun)

It’s all we really got tonight
Stop your cryin’ hold on (tonight)
Before you know it it’s gone (tonight)
Tonight is what it means to be young
Tonight is what it means to be young

Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin …(Tonight is what it means to be young…)
Let the fire be started …(Before you know it it’s gone…)
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted

Say a prayer in the darkness for the magic to come
No matter what it seems
Tonight is what it means to be young
Before you know it it’s gone
Tonight is what it means to be young
Before you know it it’s gone

Ah…

I’ve got a dream when the darkness is over
We’ll be lyin’ in the rays of the sun
But it’s only a dream and tonight is for real
You’ll never know what it means
But you’ll know how it feels
It’s gonna be over (over)
Before you know it’s begun

It’s all we really got tonight
Stop your cryin’ hold on (tonight)
Before you know it it’s gone (tonight)
Tonight is what it means to be young
Tonight is what it means to be young…

The things they say
And then the things they do
Nothin’s gonna stop us if our aim is true…

The things they say
And then the things they do
Nothin’s gonna stop us if our aim is true…

The things they say
And then the things they do
Nothin’s gonna stop us if our aim is true…

(Tonight is what it means to be young…)

Tori Kelly ft. Big Sean – Hollow

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 6:02 pm by LynxLee

I’m in love! with Tori Kelly. I honestly feel that she has got to be one of the most underrated artist so far. I remember the first track I felt in love with was “Should’ve Been Us” (I mean, 27 million views can’t go wrong) – but for now I’m posting up Tori Kelly and Big Sean. I love her album, a lot of tracks with incredible vocals and meaningful lyrics. Dear No One, I Was Made For Loving You, Unbreakable Smile, All In My Head – perhaps it appeals to my memories, but it feels vaguely familiar indeed.

According to her,

“Hollow,” for me, is very directly connected to me and my faith – it’s like my love song to God. I tried to fill that hole with a bunch of only things, and I just know that Jesus is the only one that can fill it.

Perhaps that’s how I feel sometimes, I’m detached from prayer and the faith that I’m protected and loved. Then again, doesn’t everybody?
Like, I used to have visitors here. Now I’ll be surprised if anyone mentioned that I post anything here.

*Hello!*

*echos-back* – yep, Hollow.

TKELLY_Hollow-single-cover_SN3[Chorus: Tori Kelly]
So hold me
Wrap me in love, fill up my cup
Empty and only your love can fill up my cup
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh

[Verse 3: Big Sean]
Look, I know you’ve been up at night
Tryna sleep with one eye open
Cryin’ out enough tears, you could fill up the Atlantic Ocean
No fun bein’ home alone, we learn this from Macaulay Culkin
So I’m just waitin’ on you
I’ve been callin’, pick me up
I know you need to pick me up
I need you to come grip me up, you my baby girl no sippy cup
Cup half empty or half full, I mean neither way just come and fill me up
Let’s take it back to the old days, head downtown and light the city up
On the late-late-late night, just pick a date then it’s date night
Karaoke, no stage fright
Girl, you was made for the stage light
Cause you got that phenomenal, most honorable
Got me fallin’, domino
Take you home to mama though, you know


[Verse 1: Tori Kelly]
I don’t wanna be the last man standing
I don’t wanna be the lonely one
Picking petals when the party’s over
No, it’s not any fun[Pre-Chorus: Tori Kelly]
Cause I’m fragile
And you know this

[Chorus: Tori Kelly]
So hold me
Wrap me in love, fill up my cup
Empty and only your love can fill up my cup
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh

[Verse 2: Tori Kelly]
I don’t wanna be the first one folding
I don’t wanna be the joker heart
Tell me, darling, will you understand me?
And not show me your cards?

[Pre-Chorus: Tori Kelly]
Cause I’m paper-thin
And you, you make me whole again

[Chorus: Tori Kelly]
So hold me
Wrap me in love, fill up my cup
Empty and only your love can fill up my cup
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh

[Verse 3: Big Sean]
Look, I know you’ve been up at night
Tryna sleep with one eye open
Cryin’ out enough tears, you could fill up the Atlantic Ocean
No fun bein’ home alone, we learn this from Macaulay Culkin
So I’m just waitin’ on you
I’ve been callin’, pick me up
I know you need to pick me up
I need you to come grip me up, you my baby girl no sippy cup
Cup half empty or half full, I mean neither way just come and fill me up
Let’s take it back to the old days, head downtown and light the city up

And hold me
Wrap me in love, fill up my cup
Empty, cause only your love can fill up my cup
So hold me
Wrap me in love, fill up my cup

Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh
Cause I’m hollow
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh
Cause I’m hollow (yeah)
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh (oh yeah)
Cause I’m hollow (I’m hollow)
Yeah, I’m hollow, oh oh oh

Wendell B – Just Don’t Understand You

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 4:37 pm by LynxLee

Sometimes we just don’t understand some people. I mean, it’s almost like when people argue and jumped off a moving car just to avoid an argument; or someone driving the one who always keep coming back – away from him/her.

It’s something we struggle to understand, and I guess the easiest thing to do is to accept it and get on with our lives. Then there’s times we still stick around thinking, “What would happen if things changed, or if things doesn’t?”. It’s hard to understand why we get emotionally attached sometimes, and it’s even harder to understand those who doesn’t.

I guess what I’m trying to say is, it’s all “weird”. I stumbled upon this gem after listening to some Southern Soul R&B – just felt like drinking a “soda” every now and then. I guess every now and then we need that “Sugar Rush” and swim through our heartbeats. Don’t change nothin’ – I just don’t understand you.

good-times

Mama taught me my ABCs, Daddy taught me how to 123
Went to school and got a college degree
But I just don’t understand you
I’ve been around the world, across the seven seas
Swam the deepest ocean, highest tree?
Went back to school and got my bachelor’s degree but I still don’t understand you

 

Girl we’ve been together for quite some time
And I’ve never had the chance to speak my mind
But girl you know I love you
But you keep a lot of hell up in my home
It’s time we get it together baby
Or leave the thing aloneChorus
Mama taught me my ABCs, Daddy taught me how to 123
Went to school and got a college degree
But I just don’t understand you
I’ve been around the world, across the seven seas
Swam the deepest ocean, highest tree?
Went back to school and got my bachelor’s degree but I still don’t understand you

Now here I go again trying to make you understand
All the pain I go through baby trying to be a strong man
See I’ve paid all your bills baby
Keep you in the finest clothes
And still you won’t do right baby
Seems you’re out of control

So tell me what do I do because I’ve gone my last mile
I don’t want to lose the love we’ve had
But it’s time for me to smile awhile
But I’ll keep my door open baby, I just want a happy home
But it’s time we get it together or like ? say, get gone

Chorus
