The Veronicas – On Your Side

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

The best part about listening to new music is when you discovered one that “speaks/sings” to you. This track resonates very well with me in terms of the lyrics and the rhythm. Hard times are when you realize who is your true friends, and it certainly speaks likewise. It really does mean a lot when you have someone by/on your side.

Life isn’t pretty we all get a little wrecked sometimes
If God’s listening, people think you’re out of your mind
Even if you believe it
Through all the hard times
I’m on your side
On your side
I’m on your side
On your side

If we knew then what we do now
We’d hold our hands and take a bow
Together we would stand our ground
And fight

I remember the night we got drunk
I got sick on the subway
With your hands on my face
Said “It don’t matter babe
‘Cause I’m always on your side”

Life isn’t pretty we all get a little wrecked sometimes
If God’s listening, people think you’re out of your mind
Even if you believe it
Through all the hard times
I’m on your side
On your side
I’m on your side
On your side

I still wear your t-shirt out
All the ink is faded now
I wonder who you’re dreaming of
Tonight

I remember the night
When you packed all your bags in the doorway
Said, “I don’t wanna fight
You can leave, but remember
I’m always on your side”

Life isn’t pretty we all get a little wrecked sometimes
If God’s listening, people think you’re out of your mind
Even if you believe it
Through all the hard times
I’m on your side
On your side
I’m on your side
On your side

On your side
Life isn’t pretty we all get a little wrecked sometimes
If God’s listening, people think you’re out of your mind
Even if you believe it
Through all the hard times
I’m on your side

JoJo – Music.

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Personal Post tagged , , at 11:13 pm by LynxLee

Tomorrow I’ll be on a company trip to Tokyo. As I take my old camera’s SD card, I stumbled upon me and my wife’s vacation photos back in 2013 – when she was pregnant. You know how it takes 3 years to suddenly have flash back thinking, “Wait, this happened? Oh yeah, my kid is 3 years plus.. I guess it must be true.”. Seriously, these days I think to myself how I loathe travelling, but flying to another country is exactly the kind of things that would bring the glow to my wife. It strucks a memory and an awareness cord.. thinking “Honestly though, who would I be without you?”. I guess it’s phases of our lives when we look back and realize things. Of course, music like this helps to evoke the emotion as well. Sometimes music just like a friend, extending his/her hand sayin’ “Come on.. let’s go”. Oyasumi.

Tell me who, who would I be without you?
No matter how much we lose
Every time I bet my life on you

I used to hear the voices through the thin walls
Tension building up and I’d feel so small
Some nights I’d hide under the pillows ’cause I didn’t know what else to do
Started singing just to get some attention
A melody to cut through the addiction
And every song I made turned into wishes
Some of them came true

Everyone rises, everyone falls
Everyone spends some nights alone
Rich or for poor
I’m always yours
You never left me on my own

Tell me who, who would I be without you?
No matter how much we lose
Every time I bet my life on you

We were never rich not even thousands
Mom was on her knees cleaning houses
I used to go to work with her some days
And dream and dance in the big hallways

Everyone’s scared, everyone’s scarred
Everyone spends some nights alone
But every high, every low
You never left me on my own

Tell me who, who would I be without you?
No matter how much we lose
Every time I bet my life on you

Tell me who, would I be without you?
Nothing I’d rather do
Every night I bet my life on you
Who would I be without you?

Went on the road to make my daddy proud
But I lost him and then I sang to the crowd
My only hope is that he’s looking down thinking
“Oh my God, my daughter’s doing it now”

Tell me who, who would I be without you?
No matter how much we lose
Every time I bet my life on you

Tell me who, would I be without you?
Nothing I’d rather do
Every night I bet my life on you
Who would I be without you?
