Celine Dion – A Mother’s Prayer

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 10:00 am by LynxLee

Celine Dion sang this song with Andrea Bocelli on 1999, then almost 10 years later; another version with Josh Groban was released on 2008. Before that, Celine Dion re-recorded and re-written the lyrics to the form of a Mother’s prayer. For all mothers out there, these lyrics may strike a deep chord in them.

This post is dedicated to all babies; previous, current and future.

A Mother's PrayerI pray You’ll be my eyes
And watch her where she goes
And help her to be wise
Help me to let go

Every mother’s prayer
Every child knows
Lead her to a place
Guide her with Your grace
To a place where she’ll be safe

I pray she finds Your light
And holds it in her heart
As darkness falls each night
Remind her where You are

Every mother’s prayer
Every child knows
Need to find a place
Guide her to a place
Give her faith so she’ll be safe

Lead her to a place
Guide her with Your grace
To a place where she’ll be safe

Celine Dion – My Love

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged at 10:35 am by LynxLee

My love, we have seen it all
The Endless confession,The rise and fall
As fragile as a child
Lately I’m sorry I can’t hold a smile

But I stand tall to get by
No matter how hard I try to hide
Did you know I take the time for you
Did you know that I would see you through
Did you know that I would play the part
I must’ve made it clear right from the start

My love, can you give me strength
Somehow I forgot how to ease my pain
I know I’m right where I belong
Something from nothing never proved me wrong

But I stand tall to get by
No matter how hard I try to hide
Did you know I take the time for you

Did you know that I would see you through
Did you know that I would play the part
I must’ve made it clear right from the start

I would shade my whole life with you
Would you do the same for me
I would give all I am to you
Would you do the same for me

And I will stand tall to get by
No matter how hard I try to hide
Could you see I’ve been brave
Did you notice all my mistakes
There were times I could feel you read my mind

Did you know I take the time for you
Did you know that I would see you through
Did you know that I would play the part
I know I made it clear right from the start

Celine Dion & Paul Anka – It’s Hard to Say Goodbye

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged , at 5:12 pm by LynxLee

In Love with MS
I’ll never try to hold you back
I wouldn’t try controlling you
If it’s what you want
It’s what I want
I want what’s best for you
And if there’s something else
that you’re looking for
I’ll be the first to help you try
Believe me when I say
It’s hard to say goodbye

There’s something in your eyes
that’s far too revealing
Why must it be like this a
love without feelin’
Something’s wrong with you I know
I see it in your eyes
Believe me when I say
It’s gonna be okay

I told you from the start I
won’t be demanding
I won’t be demanding
If you have a change your heart
I’ll be understanding
I’ll be understanding
When love becomes a broken heart
and dreams begin to die
Believe me when I say
We’ll work it out some way

I’ll never try to hold you back
I wouldn’t try controlling you
If it’s what you want
It’s what I want
I want what’s best for you
And if there’s something else
that you’re looking for
I’ll be the first to help you try
Believe me when I say
It’s hard to say goodbye

We’ve lost that loving touch we
used to feel so much
I try to hide the truth that’s in my eyes
The love without feeling
But when I feel we’re not in
love, I know I’m losing you
Believe me when I say
We’ll work it out some way

I’ll never try to hold you back
I wouldn’t try controlling you
If it’s what you want
It’s what I want
I want what’s best for you
And if there’s something else
that you’re looking for
I’ll be the first to help you try
Believe me when I say
It’s hard to say goodbye

Don’t say goodbye

If it’s what you want
It’s what I want
I want what’s best for you

I’ll never try to hold you back
I wouldn’t try controlling you
If it’s what you want
It’s what I want
I want what’s best for you
And if there’s something else
that you’re looking for
I’ll be the first to help you try
Believe me when I say
It’s hard to say goodbye

I’ll never try to hold you back
I wouldn’t try controlling you
If it’s what you want
It’s what I want
I want what’s best for you
And if there’s something else
that you’re looking for
I’ll be the first to help you try

Celine Dion – Then You Look At Me

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 10:58 pm by LynxLee

Honest to god, I just simply love this song. I love the movie it’s featured in for so long. The lyrics are extraordinaire. Here’s how I interpret this song; you know how it’s like when.. we just knew everything that were meant to be? Just like.. having a premonition.. but having to go through so much time.. and effort.. then.. finally, you reach that destination. The single “moment” that you’ve always wanted. Always dreamt of. It’s like a wish coming true. As the title above, that’s how I feel about this song and how I remember it.

And you say you see
When you look at me
The reason you love life so
Though lost I have been
I find love again
And life just keeps on running
And life just keeps on running
You look at me and life comes
From…you

Laugh and cry
Live and die
Life is a dream we are dreaming

Day by day
I find my way
Look for the soul and the meaning

Then you look at me
And I always see
What I have been searching for
I’m lost as can be
Then you look at me
And I am not lost anymore

People run
Sun to sun
Caught in their lives ever flowing
Once begun
Life goes till it’s gone
We have to go where it’s going

Chorus

And you say you see
When you look at me
The reason you love life so
Though lost I have been
I find love again
And life just keeps on running
And life just keeps on running
You look at me and life comes
From…you

Celine Dion – Falling Into You

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , at 10:27 pm by LynxLee

And in your eyes I see ribbons of color
I see us inside of each other
I feel my unconscious merge with yours
And I hear a voice say, “What’s his is hers”

Falling like a leaf, falling like a star
Finding a belief, falling where you are

I’m falling into you
This dream could come true
And it feels so good falling into you

==========================================================================================
“Here’s a short message to Mei Shang.. — 26th March 2009
I’m sorry.. I can’t stand being close to you, yet feel so far.
All our arguments.. I needed to remove you from my Facebook to recover.
My feelings are all messed up. I’m hurting bad..
I know you wanna be happy too.
I want you to be happy as well.
I hope it gets better soon..
But as of right now..
I’m missing you badly still..
and if you feel the same way,
please talk to me..”
==========================================================================================

And in your eyes I see ribbons of color
I see us inside of each other
I feel my unconscious merge with yours
And I hear a voice say, “What’s his is hers”

I’m falling into you
This dream could come true
And it feels so good falling into you

I was afraid to let you in here
Now I have learned love can’t be made in fear
The walls begin to tumble down
And I can’t even see the ground

I’m falling into you
This dream could come true
And it feels so good falling into you

Falling like a leaf, falling like a star
Finding a belief, falling where you are

Catch me, don’t let me drop!
Love me, don’t ever stop!

So close your eyes and let me kiss you
And while you sleep I will miss you

I’m falling into you
This dream could come true
And it feels so good falling into you

Falling like a leaf, falling like a star
Finding a belief, falling where you are

Falling into you
Falling into you
Falling into you

Various Artists – Alone

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , , at 12:08 am by LynxLee

This song is such a great song. It was written on my birth year (1983) and first recorded and released by Heart (the same group that sang “All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You“). Since then, so many artists sang many variations and styles. Recently we’ve heard some of them being performed in the American Idol. This season’s American Idol is most probably the best talents featured so far. Celine Dion is the most latest and popular version currently.

My small brother and me has been listening and singing to this song for quite some time, (Yes, it explains why it rains so often these days) that I really had to post it here.

This song explains my social status. Haha.. It also expresses my hidden desires. =P So much for the word “hidden”. =P

Cheers,
DanL

You don’t know how long i have wanted
to touch your lips and hold you tight
You don’t know how long I have waited
and I was going to tell you tonight
But the secret is still my own
and my love for you is still unknown
Alone

Til now I always got by on my own
I never really cared until I met you
And now it chills me to the bone
How do I get you alone
How do I get you alone

Heart
Carrie Underwood
Carly Smithson
Ramiele Malubay
Celine Dion

I hear the ticking of the clock
I’m lying here, the room’s pitch dark
I wonder where you are tonight
No answer on the telephone
And the night goes by so very slow
Oh I hope that it won’t end though
Alone

Til now I always got by on my own
I never really cared until I met you
And now it chills me to the bone
How do I get you alone
How do I get you alone

You don’t know how long i have wanted
to touch your lips and hold you tight
You don’t know how long I have waited
and I was going to tell you tonight
But the secret is still my own
and my love for you is still unknown
Alone

Til now I always got by on my own
I never really cared until I met you
And now it chills me to the bone
How do I get you alone
How do I get you alone
Alone
Alone
