If you think that good music and good lyrics are only around back in the days, you’ve probably haven’t been searching hard enough. Tim McGraw’s raw advice lyrics instills good principles and values into the listeners. This would be the great type of song to get the young ones to listen and enjoy it. The music video itself is a work of art, a celebration of life. With so many things happening around us these days, it’s hard to like people singing to do the right thing or always speaking out that they’re happy; but tracks like these won’t bother you – they’re just giving you good advice – Talk Less, Smile More. Always Stay Humble and Kind.

humbleandkind-660x400Hold the door say please say thank you
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got moutains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

You know there’s a light that glows by the front door
Don’t forget the keys under the mat
When childhood stars shine, always stay humble and kind
Go to church cause your momma says too
Visit grandpa every chance that you can
It won’t be wasted time
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door say please say thank you
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got moutains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

Don’t expect a free ride from no one
Don’t hold a grudge or a chip and here’s why
Bitterness keeps you from flying
Always stay humble and kind
Know the difference with sleeping with someone
And sleeping with someone you love
I love you ain’t no pick up line so
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door say please say thank you
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got moutains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

When it’s hot, eat a root beer popsicle
Shut off the ac and roll the windows down
Let that summer sun shine
Always stay humble and kind
Don’t take for granted the love this life gives you
When you get where you’re goin’
Don’t forget turn back around
And help the next one in line
Always stay humble and kind

Roxette – Fading Like A Flower

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 11:46 pm by LynxLee

I’ve been listening to the new Roxette album, but honestly it can’t get better than this track. Listening to this song itself transport you to those days the past when you’d melt when you see you’re crush. More importantly, when you start fading like a flower. Ah, good times. Looking back and laugh at those days, because it’s always better today and tomorrow.

Every time I see you oh I try to But when we meet it seems I can’t let go
Every time you leave the room I feel I’m fading like a flower

In a time where the sun descends alone
I ran a long long way from home
To find a heart that’s made of stone
I will try, I just need a little time
To get your face right out of my mind
To see the world through different eyes
Every time I see you oh I try to hide away
But when we meet it seems I can’t let go
Every time you leave the room I feel I’m fading like a flower
Tell me why
When I scream there’s no reply
When I reach out there’s nothing to find
When I sleep I break down and cry
Cry, yeah
Every time I see you oh I try to hide away
But when we meet it seems I can’t let go
Every time you leave the room I feel I’m fading like a flower
Fading like a rose
Fading like a rose
Beaten by the storm
Talking to myself
Getting washed by the rain
It’s such a cold cold town
Oh, it’s a such cold town
Every time I see you oh I try to hide away
But when we meet it seems I can’t let go
Every time you leave the room I feel I’m fading like a flower

Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton Musical) – Wait For It

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , , at 11:19 am by LynxLee

This song has a little anchor in me because growing up, I’ve always felt like I need to wait for whatever I wanted. I’m not the driven kind of person to chase after something, I take my time analysing every single move I need to make in order to slowly take the shot. I do like doing things right away and I don’t really understand why people hesitate, but when it comes to anything involving emotions – I’m willing to wait for it.

I recalled my first job interview when the boss asked me “if I wanted to buy a product, what do I do? I told her that I’ll wait until the product comes into market and queue in line to buy it.” Apparently it was a horrible answer, they wanted an executor – a person who gets the job done. I guess I clearly wasn’t the right person for it. As embarrassing as it may sound, I wasn’t sure if I had what it takes to do something right the first time. I never do, I make my mistakes and try and try and try. (Give, give, give – until I’ve given up)

Sometimes you change so many times in your life, you revert back to your own self and think – what am I doing? My school years were great, I stayed true to myself as I explore how others think. In college, I had the priority and importance to keep satisfying others, befriend them, be one of them, do whatever it takes to blend in. When I started working, that’s when I understood that I’m just this unique person who doesn’t necessary need to always fit in a group. I can be just simply me and move around as I like.

Perhaps there’s more things to learn growing further past my 33 years, but for now I guess I’ll have to “Wait for it”.

09-leslie-odom-jr-hamilton.w1200.h630Love doesn’t discriminate
Between the sinners
And the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep loving anyway
We laugh and we cry
And we break
And we make our mistakes
And if there’s a reason I’m by her side
When so many have tried
Then I’m willing to wait for it
I’m willing to wait for it

I am the one thing in life I can control

I am inimitable
I am an original

I’m not falling behind or running late

I’m not standing still
I am lying in wait

I’m willing to wait for it

[BURR]
Theodosia writes me a letter every day
I’m keeping the bed warm while her husband is away
He’s on the British side in Georgia
He’s trying to keep the colonies in line
But he can keep all of Georgia
Theodosia, she’s mine

Love doesn’t discriminate
Between the sinners
And the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep loving anyway
We laugh and we cry
And we break
And we make our mistakes
And if there’s a reason I’m by her side
When so many have tried
Then I’m willing to wait for it
I’m willing to wait for it

[BURR]
My grandfather was a fire and brimstone preacher
But there are things that the
Homilies and hymns won’t teach ya
My mother was a genius
My father commanded respect
When they died they left no instructions
Just a legacy to protect

Preacher, preacher
Preacher

Teach ya, teach ya, teach ya

Respect, respect

[BURR/ENSEMBLE]
Death doesn’t discriminate
Between the sinners
And the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep living anyway
We rise and we fall
And we break
And we make our mistakes
And if there’s a reason I’m still alive
When everyone who loves me has died
I’m willing to wait for it
I’m willing to wait for it

Wait for it

Hamilton faces an endless uphill climb

[ENSEMBLE]
Climb
Climb
Climb

[BURR]
He has something to prove
He has nothing to lose

[ENSEMBLE]
Lose
Lose
Lose
Lose

[BURR]
Hamilton’s pace is relentless
He wastes no time

[ENSEMBLE]
Time
Time
Time

[BURR]
What is it like in his shoes?

Hamilton doesn’t hesitate
He exhibits no restraint
He takes and he takes and he takes
And he keeps winning anyway
He changes the game
He plays and he raises the stakes
And if there’s a reason
He seems to thrive when so few survive, then Goddamnit—

[BURR]
I’m willing to wait for it

I’m willing to wait for it…

Life doesn’t discriminate
Between the sinners and the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes

We rise
We fall

And if there’s a reason I’m still alive
When so many have died
Then I’m willin’ to—

It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep living anyway
We rise and we fall and we break
And we make our mistakes
And if there’s a reason I’m still alive
When so many have died
Then I’m willin’ to—
