Colbie Caillat – Try

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 3:42 pm by LynxLee

Call me sentimental, but now as a father to a little girl; it is extremely important to me that she learns to know the “good” side of things and this includes music, videos, language, lyrics, actions and so on.

That being said, I wouldn’t mind she grows up being herself even if everything is not as perfectly good as I would like. In the end of the day, just like this gorgeous track – I want her to be growing up naturally. Don’t need to be someone else, be yourself and be happy (even when things aren’t that perfect).

Sylvia, read these notes from daddy when you grow up, ok? Just like your mom, I love you.

colbie-caillat-gypsy-heart-side-a-ep-2014-billboard-650-extWait a second,
Why, should you care, what they think of you
When you’re all alone, by yourself, do you like you?
Do you like you?

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to bend until you break
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing

Take your make-up off
Let your hair down
Take a breath
Look into the mirror, at yourself
Don’t you like you?
Cause I like you


Oooh
Oooh

Put your make-up on
Get your nails done
Curl your hair
Run the extra mile
Keep it slim so they like you, do they like you?

Get your sexy on
Don’t be shy, girl
Take it off
This is what you want, to belong, so they like you
Do you like you?

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing

You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try
Yooou don’t have to try

Oooh
Oooh

Get your shopping on, at the mall, max your credit cards
You don’t have to choose, buy it all, so they like you
Do they like you?

Wait a second,
Why, should you care, what they think of you
When you’re all alone, by yourself, do you like you?
Do you like you?

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to bend until you break
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing

You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try

You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try
Yooou don’t have to try

Oooh
Oooh

You don’t have to try so hard
You don’t have to, give it all away
You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up
You don’t have to change a single thing

You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try, try, try, try
You don’t have to try
You don’t have to try

Take your make-up off
Let your hair down
Take a breath
Look into the mirror, at yourself
Don’t you like you?
Cause I like you

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

I will come to visit you, even when we're old and grey

Stay

We simply fit together like a piece of apple pie

We simply fit together
like a piece of apple pie

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
When I can

We always joke together
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
When you’re driving on the road
I will come to you in need and I’ll help you when I can
Oh when I can

Stay with me
Promise me you’re never gonna leave
Stay with me yeah
Lets try to be the best that we can be
Take our time

We simply fit together like a piece of apple pie
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
When I can

Stay with me
Promise me you’re never gonna leave
Stay with me yeah
Lets try to be the best that we can be

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
When you’re driving on the road
I will come to you in need and I’ll help you when I can
Oh when I can

So

Colbie Caillat – Something Special

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 12:15 am by LynxLee

“Somethin’ Special (Beijing Olympic Mix)” is a song by pop singer Colbie Caillat, released on July 29, 2008, for charity. The song now appears on the compilation created to give support to the American athletes participating in the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China, AT&T TEAM USA Soundtrack. A promotional music video of the song was released in August 2008.

The song was also featured in the 2009 film Bride Wars, however the version played in the film had different lyrics which suggests that it was the original mix, not the Beijing Olympic Mix, and has not yet been released.

Days go by and I’ll grow stronger
It takes time but I’ll never let go
Days go by and I’ll try harder
To make it mine

I found a way to be everything
I dreamed of
And I know it to me that I will become
Who I want to be
And I finally found it
And I’m takin’ the long way out
Cause its gonna be
Somethin’ special to me
Somethin’ special to me

Days go by and I’ll grow stronger
It takes time but I’ll never let go
Days go by and I’ll try harder
To make it mine

Its somethin’ special to me
Its somethin’ special to me
Its somethin’ special to me

I found so many things
I dreamed of
And I know it to me
That I will become
Who I want to be
And I finally found it
And I’m takin’ the long way out
And its gonna be
Somethin’ special to me
Somethin’ special to me

Days go by and I’ll grow stronger
It takes time but I’ll never let go
Days go by and I’ll try harder
To make it mine

Its somethin’ special to me
More than I hoped for
More than I dreamed of
This is how it should be
More than I hoped for
More than I dreamed of
This is how it should be

Days go by and I’ll grow stronger
It takes time but I’ll never let go
Days go by and I’ll try harder
To make it mine

Its somethin’ special to me
Its somethin’ special to me
Its somethin’ special to me

Days go by and I’ll grow stronger
It takes time but I’ll never let go
Days go by and I’ll try harder
To make it mine

Days go by and I’ll grow stronger
It takes time but I’ll never let go
Days go by and I’ll try harder
To make it mine

Colbie Caillat – Fallin’ For You

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged , at 12:25 am by LynxLee

Fallin for you.. Isn’t it funny sometimes how many people we can fall for at one go? I mean, to quote a friend of mine; close your eyes.. imagine 5 different faces that you like.. can you see them? I’m sure you have a couple.. unless you’re attached or married, or having no interest in serious relationships or such; you’ve probably had a couple of people in mind. You see what I mean? We fall for people all the time. Now, how do we know who’s the one? I guess it’s either trial and error.. or if you believe in it; fate. Whichever it is, no one is really ever alone. We’re one in this sphere of blue and green. Enjoy your stay..

p.s. I personally love Out of My Mind more instead.

I’ve been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’ve been waiting all my life
and now I found ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’m fallin’ for you

I don’t know but
I think I maybe
Fallin’ for you
Dropping so quickly
Maybe I should
Keep this to myself
Waiting ’til I
Know you better

I am trying
Not to tell you
But I want to
I’m scared of what you’ll say
So I’m hiding what I’m feeling
But I’m tired of
Holding this inside my head

I’ve been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’ve been waiting all my life
and now I found ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’m fallin’ for you

As I’m standing here
And you hold my hand
Pull me towards you
And we start to dance
All around us
I see nobody
Here in silence
It’s just you and me

I’m trying
Not to tell you
But I want to
I’m scared of what you’ll say
So I’m hiding what I’m feeling
But I’m tired of
Holding this inside my head

I’ve been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’ve been waiting all my life
and now I found ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’m fallin’ for you

Oh I just can’t take it
My heart is racing
The emotions keep spinning out

I’ve been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’ve been waiting all my life
and now I found ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’m fallin’ for you

I can’t stop thinking about it
I want you all around me
And now I just can’t hide it
I think I’m fallin’ for you (x2)

I’m fallin’ for you

Ooohhh
Oh no no
Oooooohhh
Oh I’m fallin’ for you

Colbie Caillat – Out Of My Mind

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged , at 10:07 pm by LynxLee

I’m so in love with you, I don’t know what to do, this time

You Called me on the phone today
Said those words u always say
And I cried
I’ve gotta figure out what’s going on inside this head of mine
But I’ve Tried

Going crazy thinking ’bout the way I shouldn’t have left it all behind
But Now I’m gone and somethings wrong I changed my mind

I’m so in love with you, I don’t know what to do, this time
And though you’re out of sight, you’re never ever out of my mind.

I Saw you just the other day,those feelings never went away
And I smiled
Told you I’ll be back and I want us to be friends and be alright.
Don’t know what to say, it’s getting harder everyday but it takes time
You should know, I’m coming home, stand by…

I’m so in love with you, I don’t know what to do this time
And though you’re out of sight, you’re never ever out of my mind

As time passes by, I fall asleep without you by my side
I go out of my mind, remembering the way we were…before

I’m so in love with you, I don’t know what to do, this time
And though you’re out of sight, you’re never ever out of my mind

I’m so in love with you, I don’t
know what to do, this time..

Jason Reeves and Colbie Caillat – Permanent

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged , at 2:21 am by LynxLee

Gotta Love Colbie!

you loved it so much in the city
you know i could not stand it there
you liked to get lost in the people
and pretend that they really care
well you know you’re such a bad imposter
hiding your wings beneath your coat
cause i watched your footprints making patterns
away from me into the snow

now i don’t believe in nothing anymore
cause love is permanent not temporary
and it’s driven straight into our chests, then buried
much too deep to just pull out like weeds in a garden
it’s permanent, im sorry..

so lately i’ve been going crazy
trying to get you off my mind
cause thoughts of you hang just like pictures
and gather dust over the time
well we hung them up just like real lovers
and drove our nails into the wall
cause we thought they’d be there forever
but we weren’t permanent at all..

and it’s getting much too hard to see you now

Colbie Caillat – Battle

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 11:34 pm by LynxLee

I’d name this song “Battle-Cry”. I was listening to this over a dozen (>12) times in the car just now on the way back since my radio wasn’t working well. I’m deeply moved by the lyrics. It feels good “sighing” along the “oooooohhh oooohhh” part. Singing along, a little cryin’ and a little mad.. Overall, it’s a feelin’ song. Honestly, the lyrics are so relationship oriented. It seems like any relationships will face these situations. I guess this song is about the singer expressing to the other person, telling him/her to move on or stay together.

This is a battle and its your final last call.

You’ve got them on your side
and they wont change their minds, now its over
and i’m feelin’ like we’ve missed out on everything
i just hope its worth the fight

Cause this is a battle
and its your final last call
(Why’d you have to let it go)
it was a trial, you made a mistake, we know
(cant you see you hurt me soo)
but why arent you sorry, why arent you sorry, why?
things could be better, you can be happy, try!

V1: You thought we’d be fine
all these years gone by
now your askin’ me to listen
well then tell me bout everything
no lies we’re loosin’ time

C: Cause this is a battle
and its your final last call
it was a trial, you made a mistake, we know
but why aren’t you sorry, why aren’t you sorry, why?
this can be better, you used to be happy, try!

ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

V2: You’ve got them on your side
and they wont change their minds
now its over
and i’m feelin’ like we’ve missed out on everything
i just hope its worth the fight

C: Cause this is a battle
and its your final last call (Why’d you have to let it go)
it was a trial, you made a mistake, we know (cant you see you hurt me soo)
but why arent you sorry, why arent you sorry, why?
things could be better, you can be happy, try!

ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

C: Cause this is a battle
and its your final last call….
it was a trial, you made a mistake, we know(cant you see you hurt me so)
but why arent you sorry, why arent you sorry, why?
this can be better, we can be happy, try!

ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

this is a battle
this is a battle

ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

this your final last call

ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

this is a battle
this is a battle

ooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

and its your final last call

This is a battle and its your final last call

Colbie Caillat – Midnight Bottle

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged at 12:20 am by LynxLee


One simple “sip” (call) is all it takes, to smile a long while.

I’ve got a midnight bottle gonna drink it down
A one way ticket takes me to the times we had before
When everything felt so right
If only for tonight I’ve got a midnight bottle gonna ease my pain
From all these feelings driving me insane
I think of you and everything’s all right

if only for tonight

Midnight bottle take me calmly through my memories and everything come back to me
Midnight bottle make it real what feels like make believe so I can see a little more clearly
Like every single move you make kissing me so carefully on the corners of my dreaming eyes

I’ve got a midnight bottle gonna drink it down
A one way ticket takes me to the times we had before
When everything felt so right
If only for tonight I’ve got a midnight bottle gonna ease my pain
From all these feelings driving me insane
I think of you and everything’s all right if only for tonight
Got a midnight bottle drifting off into the candlelight where I can find you any old time
A midnight bottle I forgot how good it felt to be in a dream just like you had me
Cause lately I’ve been stumbling feels like I’m recovering
But I think it’s only for tonight

I’ve got a midnight bottle gonna drink it down
A one way ticket takes me to the times we had before
When everything felt so right
If only for tonight I’ve got a midnight bottle gonna ease my pain
From all these feelings driving me insane
I think of you and everything’s all right if only for tonight
If only for tonight, if only for tonight, if only for tonight

I’ve got a midnight bottle gonna drink it down
A one way ticket takes me to the times we had before
When everything felt so right
If only for tonight I’ve got a midnight bottle gonna ease my pain
From all these feelings driving me insane
I think of you and everything’s all right if only for tonight
If only for tonight, if only for tonight, if only for tonight

Colbie Caillat – One Fine Wire

Posted in Images, Lyrics tagged , at 9:06 pm by LynxLee

Colbie Caillat (image of Colbie copied from www.colbie.org)

I’m balancing on one fine wire….

I try so many times
but it’s not taking me
and it seems so long ago
that I used to believe
and I’m so lost inside of my head
and crazy
but I cant get out of it
I’m just stumbling

And I’m juggling all the thoughts in my head
I’m juggling and my fears on fire
but I’m listening as it evolves in my head
I’m balancing on one fine wire

And I remember the time my balance was fine
and I was just walking on one fine wire
I remember the time my balance was fine
and I was just walking on one fine wire
but It’s frayed at both the ends
and I’m slow unraveling

Life plays so many games inside of me
and I’ve had some distant cries, following
and their entwined between the night and sun beams
I wish I were free from this pain in me

And I’m juggling all the thoughts in my head
I’m juggling and my fears on fire
but I’m listening as it evolves in my head
I’m balancing on one fine wire

And I remember the time my balance was fine
and I was just walking on one fine wire
I remember the time my balance was fine
and I was just walking on one fine wire
but it’s frayed at both the ends
and I’m slow unraveling

And I’m juggling all the thoughts in my head
I’m juggling and my fears on fire
but I’m listening as it evolves in my head
I’m balancing on one fine wire….

Colbie Caillat – Feelings Show

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 5:09 pm by LynxLee

I totally feel this song.
The lyrics are pretty much how I’m living my life now. =P

I’m sorry it’s taking me so long
To find out what I’m feeling

I wonder if it will come to me
Maybe not
Maybe not
Because?

Love is crazy
Pretty baby
Take it real slow
My feelings show
All you have to do
Is never ever let it go
My feelings show
And I want you to know

What I’m trying to say is that
I’m feeling a change and
I’ll let it take all over
If you need time away
I won’t ask you to stay
But I don’t want to lose you

You told me
You’d wait here patiently but
I wonder if he’s kidding
Well maybe he could be serious now
Maybe not
Maybe not
Because?

Love is crazy
Pretty baby
Take it real slow
My feelings show
All you have to do
Is never ever let it go
My feelings show
And I want you to know

I’m sorry it’s taking me so long
To find out what I’m feeling
I wonder if it will come to me
Maybe not
Maybe not
Because?

Love is crazy
Pretty baby
Take it real slow
My feelings show
All you have to do
Is never ever let it go
My feelings show
And I want you to know
My feelings show
I want you to know

What I’m trying to say is that
I’m feeling a change and
I’ll let it take all over
If you need time away
I won’t ask you to stay
But I don’t want to lose you

Love is crazy
Pretty baby
Take it real slow
My feelings show
All you have to do
Is never ever let it go
My feelings show
Love is crazy
Pretty baby
Take it real slow
My feelings show
All you have to do
Is never ever let it go
My feelings show
And I want you to know
My feelings show

Never ever let it go
My feelings show
Never ever let it go
My feelings show
Never ever let it go
My feelings show
