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?

Blue October – Light You Up

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 3:44 pm by LynxLee

A quick apology for the profanity in this post first hand, but great music from great artists like this needs to be shared. There are days when we get addicted to something bad, something that makes you want it all the time. When you get over the addiction, you battle your way through it with hate – mainly because you love something else even more than that. This track expresses that emotion very very well, and probably might make you feel good too. As I said, there’s profanity – so if you can’t handle the F word, please navigate away. Yet, there’s a YouTube comment that states – “f**k you has never been used so beautifully”. This is for those I have to HATE to protect those I LOVE.

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up


I’m never gonna give up
Remember what abuse did
It’s time you look at facing
As if you were in anyway understood

It always lowered me to downsize
It always lowered my faith
But it’s in the corner rising next to me
It’s in the corner like it upstage

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up

I said I wouldn’t fail you
It’s something sorry couldn’t sell you
A slow rain, a time bomb
Disconnect it won’t erase what I’d done wrong

In no way is it worth
Losing everything I am including these words
Your heart in my hands
I’m sick as all my secrets that’s why this hurts

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up

‘Cause they’ll put me in the crazy house
And it put me in the crazy farm
And I’m never gonna get back out
I’m never ever gonna treat you wrong
Get down to the earth and the people
Get down to the earth in your bed
That’s where I’m gonna go
And where I’ll never go
When I’m in my motherfucking head.

So tell your mom, tell your dad, tell your family
That I’m beyond the unreasonable sinking ship
You see I never took the time
Never took the time
Never took the time
To learn all about these things you call a relationship

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up

ZAYN – BeFoUr

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged at 9:53 am by LynxLee

I get this track. Sometimes people just don’t want to tell you things and it gets frustrating. I’m done judging and assuming.

hqdefaultSo say what you wanna say, what you wanna
So say what you wanna say, what you gotta say, now
So say what you wanna say, what you want
Shame is you won’t say that to my face

I’ve done this before
Not like this, not like this

Time for me to move on
So many hours have gone
Heart beats the pump of my blood
No strings for you to pull on
You’ve got your tongue in your cheek
So pardon if I don’t speak
Can’t tune my chords
Into your songs, no

Numb on a roof
Set it on fire
Just to give me proof
I’m living on a wire

[Intro]
I’ve done this before
Not like this

[Verse 1]
I don’t drink to get drunk
I feel all the right funk
If there’s something I want
I’ll take all the right wrongs
Now, I’m gonna stay in my zone
I’m tired of picking that bone
And I can’t be bothered
To fight it no more, no

[Pre-Chorus]
Numb on a roof
Set it on fire
Just to give me proof
I’m living on a wire
Numb on a roof
Set it on fire
Just to give me proof
I’m living on a wire

[Chorus]
So say what you wanna say, what you wanna
So say what you wanna say, what you gotta say, now
So say what you wanna say, what you want
Shame is you won’t say that to my face

[Post-Chorus]
I’ve done this before
Not like this, not like this

[Verse 2]
Time for me to move on
So many hours have gone
Heart beats the pump of my blood
No strings for you to pull on
You’ve got your tongue in your cheek
So pardon if I don’t speak
Can’t tune my chords
Into your songs, no

[Pre-Chorus]
Numb on a roof
Set it on fire
Just to give me proof
I’m living on a wire

[Chorus]
So say what you wanna say, what you wanna
So say what you wanna say, what you gotta say, now (So say what you wanna say)
So say what you wanna say, what you want
Shame is you won’t say that to my face

[Post-Chorus]
I’ve done this before
Not like this, not like this

[Chorus]
Flashing lights, so say what you wanna say, what you wanna
So say what you wanna say, what you gotta say, now
So say what you wanna say, what you want
Shame is you won’t say that to my face
So say what you wanna say, what you wanna
So say what you wanna say, what you gotta say, now
So say what you wanna say, what you want
Shame is you won’t say that to my face

[Post-Chorus]
I’ve done this before
Not like this, not like this
I’ve done this before
Not like this, not like this

Mariah Carey ft. Boyz II Men – One Sweet Day

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , , at 11:52 am by LynxLee

Grandma, I never told you how much I appreciate you taking care of me and my family. Thank you so much.

Never had I imagined
Living without your smile

Feelin’ and knowing you, hear me
It keeps me alive, alive

And I know you’re shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day
Eventually I’ll see you in Heaven

Sorry, I never told you
All I wanted to say

Sorry, I’ve never told you, all I wanted to say
And now it’s too late to hold you
‘Cause you’ve flown away
So far away

Never had I imagined
Living without your smile
Feelin’ and knowing you, hear me
It keeps me alive, alive

And I know you’re shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day
Eventually I’ll see you in Heaven

Darling, I never showed you
Assumed you’d always be there
I, I took your presence for granted
But I always cared
And I miss the love we shared

I know you’re shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day
Picture a little scene from Heaven

Although, the sun will never shine the same
I’ll always look to a brighter day
Yeah, Lord, I know, when I lay me down to sleep
You will always listen as I pray

And I know you’re shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day

And I know you’re shining down on me from Heaven
Like so many friends we’ve lost along the way
And I know eventually we’ll be together
One sweet day

Sorry, I never told you
All I wanted to say

Greyson Chance – Waiting Outside the Lines

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged at 5:05 pm by LynxLee

Hey guys! This track just got way more meaningful to me last night.

Especially the part “Waiting Outside the Lines”, I mean I literally did just that. Sometimes you get so mad and all you want is just that someone to find you. All you want is to be wanted.

Sitting almost two hours in the same position and place, waiting for a miracle to happen won’t work. I guess sometimes we need to get our feet of the ground. Especially if the others are already shopping away without you. No point staying in the same vulnerable position and place.

There’s a lot of ways to perceive a 6 sided box. The world doesn’t owe you anything. In the end of the day, you know exactly what you want; and how to achieve it. You probably got what you expected already. Live your life in wealth and health.

Time to see the rainbow…

Rainbow and a wee boat - Ardtoe - Scotland

Waiting Outside the Lines is the debut single of 13-year-old singer Greyson Chance.

YouTube sensation Greyson Chance made a splash singing Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” (it has 32,300,000 page views and counting) some time back.

Big-time supporter DeGeneres took Chance under the wing of her record label, eleveneleven Records, last spring when he first appeared on the show, and the transformation of the young performer is impressive.

On Tuesday, October 26, Greyson Chance debuted his first single on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

You could probably hear this on the radio already.

The world will force you to smile
I’m here to help you notice the rainbow
Cause I know,
What’s in you is out there

You’ll never enjoy your life,
living inside the box
You’re so afraid of taking chances,
how you gonna reach the top?Rules and regulations,
force you to play it safe
Get rid of all the hesitation,
it’s time for you to seize the day

Instead of just sitting around
and looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground,
the time is now

I’m waiting, waiting, just waiting,
I’m waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

Try to have no regrets
even if it’s just tonight
How you gonna walk ahead
if you keep living behind

Stuck in my same position,
you deserve so much more
There’s a whole world around us,
just waiting to be explored

Instead of just sitting around
and looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground,
the time is now, just let it go

The world will force you to smile
I’m here to help you notice the rainbow
Cause I know,
What’s in you is out there

I’m waiting, waiting, just waiting,
I’m waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

I’m trying to be patient (I’m trying to be patient)
the first step is the hardest (the hardest)
I know you can make it,
go ahead and take it

I’m Waiting, waiting, just waiting I’m waiting
I’m waiting, waiting, just waiting
I’m waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

You’ll never enjoy your life
Living inside the box
You’re so afraid of taking chances,
How you gonna reach the top?

Colbie Caillat – Stay With Me

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 10:17 pm by LynxLee

This track simply fits the ideal love that I want to have, and from the looks of the first month since I met her; I’m ideally in love.

Stay

Stay

I will be vanilla ice cream
And I’ll sing you lullabies
I will love you in the moonlight and I’ll love you in the day
Always

I love the time we spend
Like a watch from an old friend
I will help you keep your smile
Promise me you’ll stay awhile
I will come when you need it
And I’ll help you when I can

Laugh till we’re rolling on the floor
I like the way you dance around
when you’re running for the door

I will come to visit you
Even when we’re old and grey
Always

I love the way you make me feel
When you’re asleep I’ll take the wheel
Make sure to call when you get home

Kina Grannis – Valentine

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 12:17 am by LynxLee

Happy Valentine’s Day!! Regardless of it’s history, it’s a day everyone celebrates LOVE. In Malaysia today, the first day of Chinese New Year is also the “la Saint-Valentin”. Many couples/families celebrate a week in advance, some celebrates later, some celebrates it half the day but all in all; it’s all in the love you feel from presence and the thoughts from the people that matters so much to your life.

I’ve stumbled upon Kina Grannis’ Valentine song in YouTube and I had to share this in my blog. I love the soothing sounds of her voice, guitar and lyrics. The video is really cute as well.

Valentine's Day

Be My Valentine

It’s a good excuse for anything love today. So I’m gonna spread some love. Show love to Kina Grannis, Andrew Garcia’s Straight Up (from YouTube to American Idol – you might recognize him from my previous post “Notice Me”) and the movie Valentine’s Day (Witty, Funny and Exciting). Also this video of good medley on Valentine.

Valentine's Day

MY Happy Valentine

On a personal note, MUCH much love to my family, my friends and my significant other.

To everyone; HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR and Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Love, I don’t need those things
I don’t need no ring
I don’t need anything
But you with me
‘Cause in your company
I feel happy, oh so happy and complete

And it’s a good excuse to put our love to use
Baby, I know what to do
Baby, I will love you
I’ll love you, I’ll love you

Love, it’s a special day
We should celebrate and appreciate
That you and me found something pretty neat
And I know some say this day is arbitrary

But it’s a good excuse to put our love to use
Baby, I know what to do
Baby, I will love you
I’ll love you, I’ll love you

Love, I don’t need those things
I don’t need no ring
I don’t need anything
But you with me
‘Cause in your company
I feel happy, oh so happy and complete

And it’s a good excuse to put our love to use
Baby, I know what to do
Baby, I will love you
I’ll love you, I’ll love you

So won’t you be my honey bee?
Giving me kisses all the time
Be mine, be my Valentine

So won’t you be my honey bee?
Giving sweet kisses all the time
Be mine, be my Valentine

Christopher Cross – Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 4:35 pm by LynxLee

I heard this somewhere in my office’s building and just remembered the good ol’ times. I like the start of the lyrics, here’s my interpretation:

“someone who turns you heart around” – makes yr heart beat good and have a change of heart
“you’re closing down the town” – staying out late until the last business in town closes
“wake up and it’s still with you” – it refers to “the feeling”
“between the moon and New York City” – trapped somewhere and not by anyone at night

Moon and New York City

Staying Up Late Floating in Between Spaces

The song is the theme song of this movie about a poor working girl who gets picked up by a drunken rich guy, who couldn’t manage to take care of himself for ten minutes on his own…if memory serves. They rescue each other. The song itself is simply about being caught somewhere between a dream world…a Cinderella fantasy and the real world…the dirty and ugly and unpleasant real world.
(Mary from Yahoo Answers)

I’ve been staying out late a lot these past few nights, and dare I say that my family has got concerned for a bit. Even my significant other. I know I won’t always get to be out like these. It’s that little appreciation knowing people trust you and love and concern about you. It’s that certain times you know you’re happy.

Once in your life you find her
Someone who turns you heart around and
Next thing you know you’re closing down the town
Wake up and it’s still with you
Even though you left her ‘way cross town
Wondering to yourself, “Hey, what’ve I done”

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
Best that you can do, best that you can do is fall in love

Once in your life you find her
Someone who turns you heart around and
Next thing you know you’re closing down the town
Wake up and it’s still with you
Even though you left her ‘way cross town
Wondering to yourself, “Hey, what’ve I done”

CHORUS:
When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy, but it’s true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
Best that you can do, best that you can do is fall in love

Arthur he does as he pleases
All of his life, he’s masters choices
Deep in his heart, he’s just, he’s just a boy
Living his life one day at a time
Showing himself a really good time
Laughing about the way they want him to be

CHORUS

CHORUS

CHORUS

When you get caught between the moon and New York city
I know it’s crazy
But it’s true

Five For Fighting – This Dance

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 1:53 am by LynxLee

You might recall this group singing the song Superman. This song sounds about the same, so it should sound familiar. Very sweet song.. much like drinking a sweet Korean barley drink. (Don’t quote me). =P

Anyhow, this track has been playing around the Malaysian radios a bunch of times now. Plus, my +1 really like the song; so here ya go sweets! I told ya I’ll find that song for you. =) yes, you put the “beautiful” in my life.

This Dance

May I have this dance?

This is not our favorite song
but the night is moving right along
may I have your hand, may I have this dance.

On matters of clarity
is not secret you are carrying me.
But you disguise thoughts of fall
I will keep you safe.

So while is just me and you
I thought I might say to you
You put the beautiful in life.

This is not our favorite song
but the night is moving right along
may I have your hand, may I have this dance.

I sense that you are amused,
but you just bought those brand new shoes.
It would such a shame not to give us the chance.

And oh my love there is only so many dances we can take across the night.

So while is just me and you
I thought I might say to you
You put the beautiful in life.

I know at times that you feel alone
when I’m here and I’m never home.
You said before is the price that you pay.

On matters of clarity
is not secret you are carrying me.
But you disguise thoughts of fall
I will keep you safe.

And oh my love there is only so many dances we can take across the night.

So while is just me and you
I thought I might say to you
You put the beautiful in life.

And oh….
oh…oh…

This is not our favorite song
but I wish it go on and on
it’s moments like these
singers do all they can to stop time.

So let me just say to you
before the DJ changes the tune
you put the beautiful in life
you put the beautiful in life.

Nickelback – Never Gonna Be Alone

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 7:28 pm by LynxLee

Ahh.. in love.. tomorrow there will be the sound of the wedding bells. Someone I’m in love with is attending that ceremony.

Just makes me remember this song.. I simply love the lyrics. Many men say that “Marriage is the end”. I’d say, it’s the beginning. It is for me.. and to be frank; I really can’t wait.

I’ll hold you until the hurt is gone

Time is going by
So much faster than I
And I’ve started to regret not telling all of this to you

And now
As long as I can
I’m holding on with both hands
Cuz forever I believe that there’s nothing I could need but you
So if I haven’t yet
I’ve gotta let you know

You’re never gonna be alone
From this moment on
If you ever feel like letting go
I won’t let you fall
You’re never gonna be alone
I’ll hold you until the hurt is gone


Time is going by
So much faster than I
And I’ve started to regret not spending a little with you

Now I’m
Wondering why
I’ve kept this bottled inside
So I’ve started to regret not telling all of it to you

So if I haven’t yet
I’ve gotta let you know

You’re never gonna be alone
From this moment on
If you ever feel like letting go
I won’t let you fall
You’re never gonna be alone
I’ll hold you until the hurt is gone

And now
As long as I can
I’m holding on with both hands
Cuz forever I believe that there’s nothing I could need but you
So if I haven’t yet
I’ve gotta let you know

You’re never gonna be alone
From this moment on
If you ever feel like letting go
I won’t let you fall
When all hope is gone
I know that you can carry on
We’re gonna take the world along
I’ll hold you until the hurt is gone

You gotta live every single day
Like it’s the only one
What if tomorrow never comes
Don’t let it slip away
Could be our only one
You know its only just begun

Every single day
May be our only one
What if tomorrow never comes
Tomorrow never comes

Time is going by
So much faster than I
And I’ve started to regret not telling all of this to you

Your never gonna be alone
From this moment on
If you ever feel like letting go
I won’t let you fall
When all hope is gone
I know that you can carry on
Were gonna take the world along
I’ll hold you until the hurt is gone

I’m gonna be there all the way
I won’t be missing one more day
I’m gonna be there all the way
I won’t be missing one more day
