Megan Nicole & Boyce Avenue – Skyscraper

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , , at 2:38 pm by LynxLee

Gotta love this track. I found Megan Nicole on YouTube after I listened to a track from Alex Goot featuring her. Boyce Avenue as usual, one of the best on YouTube. No disrespect to Demi Lovato, but I love this version.

I just had a great trip to Melaka for the weekend and the end of the trip were a little insightful (kinda like the contents of this track).

Cheers people! =D

Megan Nicole

Skies are crying, I am watching
Catching tear drops in my hands
Only silence, as it’s ending
Like we never had a chance

Do you have to make me feel like
So there’s nothing left of me?

Go run, run, run
I’m gonna stay right here, watch you disappear

Yeah oh
Go run, run, run
Yeah, it’s a long way down
But I am closer to the clouds up here

You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Oh Oh
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

Skies are crying, I am watching
Catching tear drops in my hands
Only silence, as it’s ending
Like we never had a chance

Do you have to make me feel like
So there’s nothing left of me?

[Chorus:]
You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

[Bridge:]
As the smoke clears, I awaken
And untangle you from me
Would it make you, feel better
To watch me while I bleed?

All my windows still are broken
But I’m standing on my feet

[Chorus:]
You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

[Bridge:]
Go run, run, run
I’m gonna stay right here, watch you disappear
Yeah oh
Go run, run, run
Yeah, it’s a long way down
But I am closer to the clouds up here

[Chorus:]
You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I’m made of glass
Like I’m made of paper
Oh Oh
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

(Like a skyscraper) huh huh huh

Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper

Kings of Leon – Use Somebody

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , , , , , at 9:00 am by LynxLee

22,391,150 views in Kings of Leon’s YouTube video can’t go wrong. In fact, it spawned quite a variety of versions. Country, Dance, Acoustic, Vocals. The last video is the official one (which we in Malaysia can’t view – like it matters, right?) So the second last is the alternative. Others, artists covering them.

I know it’s a little sad.. but..

You know that I could use somebody
Someone like you

*hint* 😉 *hint*








I’ve been roaming around
Always looking down at all I see
Painted faces, fill the places I cant reach

You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody

Someone like you, And all you know, And how you speak
Countless lovers under cover of the street

You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody
Someone like you

Off in the night, while you live it up, I’m off to sleep
Waging wars to shape the poet and the beat
I hope it’s gonna make you notice
I hope it’s gonna make you notice

Someone like me
Someone like me
Someone like me, somebody

Someone like you, somebody
Someone like you, somebody
Someone like you, somebody

I’ve been roaming around,
Always looking down at all I see

Boyce Avenue – Shadow of the Day (piano acoustic) – Cover of Linkin Park

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , , , at 3:59 am by LynxLee

Boyce Avenue gives an acoustic feel to this song. Many loved it, don’t you?

And the sun will set for you
The sun will set for you

And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in grey

And the sun will set for you

I close both locks below the window
I close both blinds and turn away

Sometimes solutions aren’t so simple
Sometimes good bye’s the only way

[Chorus]
And the sun will set for you
The sun will set for you

And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in grey

And the sun will set for you
[End Chorus]

In cards and flowers on your window
Your friends all plead for you to stay

Sometimes beginnings aren’t so simple
Sometimes good bye’s the only way

[Chorus]
And the sun will set for you
The sun will set for you

And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in grey

And the sun will set for you

And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in grey

And the sun will set for you

And the shadow of the day
Will embrace the world in grey

And the sun will set for you
[End Chorus]

The Fray – Heartless

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 9:09 am by LynxLee

Take that, Kris….! The Fray did a better job singing this song than the last American Idol.. yet, he was pretty good; to be honest. Very pop. Kanye West must probably be so proud.. of his track. Awesome.

Did you check out their music video? Very beautifully animated drawings since Justice’s D.A.N.C.E. Check the official music video at thier official website.

Happy Radio’s Day! – 090909

In the night, I hear ’em talk,
the coldest story ever told
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless…
How could you be so heartless?
Oh… How could you be so heartless?

How could you be so Dr. Evil, you bringin’ out
a side of me that I dont know…
I decided we weren’t gon’ speak so
Why we up 3 A.M. on the phone
Why does she be so mad at me fo’
Homie I dont know, she’s hot and cold
I won’t stop, won’t mess my groove up
‘Cause I already know how this thing go
You run and tell your friends that you’re leaving me
They say that they don’t see what you see in me
You wait a couple months then you gon’ see
You’ll never find nobody better than me

[Chorus]
In the night, I hear ’em talk,
the coldest story ever told
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless…
How could you be so heartless?
Oh… How could you be so heartless?

[Verse 1]
How could you be so, cold as the winter wind when it breeze, yo
Just remember that you talkin’ to me though
You need to watch the way you talkin’ to me, yo
I mean after all the things that we’ve been through
I mean after all the things we got into
Hey yo, I know of some things that you ain’t told me
Hey yo, I did some things but that’s the old me
And now you wanna get me back and you gon’ show me
So you walk around like you don’t know me
You got a new friend, well I got homies
But in the end it’s still so lonely

[Chorus]
In the night, I hear ’em talk,
the coldest story ever told
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless…
How could you be so heartless?
Oh… How could you be so heartless?

[Verse 2]
How could you be so Dr. Evil, you bringin’ out a side of me that I dont know…
I decided we weren’t gon’ speak so
Why we up 3 A.M. on the phone
Why does she be so mad at me fo’
Homie I dont know, she’s hot and cold
I won’t stop, won’t mess my groove up
‘Cause I already know how this thing go
You run and tell your friends that you’re leaving me
They say that they don’t see what you see in me
You wait a couple months then you gon’ see
You’ll never find nobody better than me

[Chorus]
In the night, I hear ’em talk,
the coldest story ever told
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless…
How could you be so heartless?
Oh… How could you be so heartless?

[Verse 3]
Talkin’, talkin’, talkin’, talk
Baby let’s just knock it off
They don’t know what we been through
They don’t know ’bout me and you
So I got something new to see
And you just gon’ keep hatin’ me
And we just gon’ be enemies
I know you can’t believe
I could just leave it wrong
And you can’t make it right
I’m gon’ take off tonight
Into the night….

[Chorus]
In the night, I hear ’em talk,
the coldest story ever told
Somewhere far along this road, he lost his soul to a woman so heartless…
How could you be so heartless?
Oh… How could you be so heartless?

Leona Lewis – Run

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , , at 9:36 pm by LynxLee

Original video here.
Snow Patrol creates such an amazing, emotional song.. Leona Lewis just makes it more appealing and lovely. Check out the link above for her latest video. The composition in the song is one of my favorites. Of course, her vocals are too. Amazing!


Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

“When we ran as far as we can, and we found that one person we love.. no matter what happens; and it transcends time..”
—> Bryan Adams & Barbra Streisand – I Finally Found Someone

I’ll sing it one last time for you
Then we really have to go
You’ve been the only thing that’s right
In all I’ve done

And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we’ll make it anywhere
Away from here

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

To think I might not see those eyes
Makes it so hard not to cry
And as we say our long goodbye
I nearly do

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

HappySlip (Christine) – Take A Bow (cover – with twist)

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , , at 5:36 pm by LynxLee

I was surfing the YouTube channels to find this particular video interesting. HappySlip talks about the song from Rihanna and how negative the lyrics seems to be in relation to the melody. Indeed, such a sweet melody like that should have a nicer lyrics. In my humble opinion, the lyrics are pretty ingeniously written to fit the melody (or shall we say, cute..?). Any comments? Very nice! =)

Additional lyrics:
You stand before me right now
Telling me all your vows
In front of God and our friends
I’ll stay with you til the end
I pledge my life

After all that I put you through
You have shown your love that is true

And this is what I know
You are not self seeking
It’s your humble heart
That always thinks of others
You are worth the wait
Noble man of honor
I stand before you now
and I accept your vows

For better, for worse
For richer, for poorer
In sickness, and in health
oh I am yours

I stand before you now
and I accept your vows

It’s one of those nights when words can’t describe enough..
and so, we basks in just the rhythm of our own lives. =D
