John Legend – You & I (Nobody In The World)

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 10:01 am by LynxLee

I heard John Legend was in Malaysia a few days ago from my colleague, and she told me this is one of his fav songs. I haven’t heard it, so it’s a welcome listen. Very nice indeed.

One interesting part of the lyrics, “Out of all of the girls, you’re my one and only girl”. That’s like saying, I’ve been through many – that’s how I met someone as special as you. Talk about experience. =D

You & I (Nobody In The World) - John LegendAll of the stars, you make them shine like they were ours
Ain’t nobody in the world but you and I
You and I
Ain’t nobody in the world but you and I

You stop the room when we walk in
Spotlight’s on everybody’s staring
Tell all of these boys they’re wasting their time
Stop standing in line, ’cause you’re all mine

You fix your make up, just so
Guess you don’t know, that you’re beautiful
Try on every dress that you own
You were fine in my eyes a half hour ago

And if your mirror won’t make it any clearer I’ll
Be the one to let you know

Out of all of the girls
You’re my one and only girl
Ain’t nobody in the world tonight

All of the stars, you make them shine like they were ours
Ain’t nobody in the world but you and I
You and I
Ain’t nobody in the world but you and I

You stop the room when we walk in
Spotlight’s on everybody’s staring
Tell all of these boys they’re wasting their time
Stop standing in line, ’cause you’re all mine

And this evening I won’t let the feeling die
I never wanna leave your side

Out of all of the girls
You’re my one and only girl
Ain’t nobody in the world tonight

All of the stars you make them shine like they were ours
Ain’t nobody in the world but you and I
You and I
Ain’t nobody in the world

You keep wondering if you’re what I’m wanting
You don’t even have to try

You don’t have to try
Don’t try
Don’t try
You don’t have to try

Out of all of the girls
You’re my one and only girl
Ain’t nobody in the world tonight

All of the stars, they don’t shine brighter than you are
Ain’t nobody in the world but you and I
You and I
You and I
Nobody in the world tonight
Ain’t nobody in the world but you and I

John Legend & Lindsay Stirling – All Of Me

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , at 12:02 am by LynxLee

I love my Nokia Lumia 920. I’ve been listening to Nokia MixRadio and it lead me to this track.

Few days ago, my wife and I celebrated our third year anniversary. It feels like waves moving in the beach, crashing into the beach and flowing again and again. It’s a wonder how time flies.

Happy Anniversary, honey!

Back to the track, listen to the original track and then listen to the one with Lindsay Stirling. I’ve been a fan on her YouTube since she started out. Incredible mix to a sentimental track. I’m sure if you love love songs, you’d love this.

All_of_Me_John_Legend_HQ_Lyric_Video_109167393_thumbnailMy head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine

You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I’m around through every mood
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues

I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you

‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections

Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all, all of me
And you give me all, all of you, oh


[Verse 1:]
What would I do without your smart mouth
Drawing me in, and you kicking me out
Got my head spinning, no kidding, I can’t pin you down
What’s going on in that beautiful mind
I’m on your magical mystery ride
And I’m so dizzy, don’t know what hit me, but I’ll be alright

[Bridge:]
My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

[Chorus:]
‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all, all of me
And you give me all, all of you, oh

[Verse 2:]
How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I’m around through every mood
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you

[Bridge:]
My head’s under water
But I’m breathing fine
You’re crazy and I’m out of my mind

[Chorus:]
‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all, all of you, oh

Give me all of you
Cards on the table, we’re both showing hearts
Risking it all, though it’s hard

[Chorus:]
‘Cause all of me
Loves all of you
Love your curves and all your edges
All your perfect imperfections
Give your all to me
I’ll give my all to you
You’re my end and my beginning
Even when I lose I’m winning
‘Cause I give you all of me
And you give me all of you

I give you all, all of me
And you give me all, all of you, oh

Herbie Hancock ft. Pink & John Legend – Don’t Give Up

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 2:32 pm by LynxLee

Just got back from a vacation/birthday trip to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Such a peaceful place where everyone is so calm. Once I got back, I got disappointed at something. Felt down, searched YouTube and got this song as a good mood lifter. Here, God’s sending you a message. I get it. I’ll try harder.

Enjoy this peaceful track. Cheers.

Imagine ProjectRest your head
You worry too much
It’s going to be alright
When times get rough
You can fall back on us
Don’t give up
Please don’t give up

Don’t give up
‘cos you have friends
Don’t give up
You’re not beaten yet
Don’t give up
I know you can make it good

In this proud land we grew up strong
We were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail

No fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I’ve changed my face, I’ve changed my name
But no one wants you when you lose

Don’t give up
‘cos you have friends
Don’t give up
You’re not beaten yet
Don’t give up
I know you can make it good

Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we’d be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Drove the night toward my home
The place that I was born, on the lakeside
As daylight broke, I saw the earth
The trees had burned down to the ground

Don’t give up
You still have us
Don’t give up
We don’t need much of anything
Don’t give up
’cause somewhere there’s a place

Where we belong

Rest your head
You worry too much
It’s going to be alright
When times get rough
You can fall back on us
Don’t give up
Please don’t give up

‘got to walk out of here
I can’t take anymore
Going to stand on that bridge
Keep my eyes down below
Whatever may come
And whatever may go
That river’s flowing
That river’s flowing

Moved on to another town
Tried hard to settle down
For every job, so many men
So many men no-one needs

Don’t give up
’cause you have friends
Don’t give up
You’re not the only one
Don’t give up
No reason to be ashamed
Don’t give up
You still have us
Don’t give up now
We’re proud of who you are
Don’t give up
You know it’s never been easy
Don’t give up
’cause I belïeve there’s the a place
There’s a place where we belong

John Legend – If You’re Out There

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 1:45 am by LynxLee

John Legend sings a song of hope. Will this bring hope and peace? Just look around you. Gotta love the effort.

We’ve been looking for a song to sing
Searched for a melody
Searched for someone to lead
We’ve been looking for the world to change
If you feel the same, well go on and say
If you’re out there
Sing along with me if you’re out there
I’m dying to believe that you’re out there
Stand up and say it loud if you’re out there
Tomorrow’s starting now…now…now

We can destroy Hunger
We can conquer Hate

Put down the arms and raise your voice
We’re joining hands today

If you’re out there
And you’re ready now
Sing it loud, scream it out
If you’re out there
Sing along with me if you’re out there
I’m dying to believe that you’re out there
Stand up and say it loud if you’re out there
Tomorrow’s starting now
If you’re out there
If you’re out there
If you’re out there

If you hear this message
Wherever you stand
I’m calling every woman
Calling ever man

We’re the generation
We can’t afford to wait
The future started yesterday
And we’re already late

We’ve been looking for a song to sing
Searched for a melody
Searched for someone to lead
We’ve been looking for the world to change
If you feel the same, well go on and say
If you’re out there
Sing along with me if you’re out there
I’m dying to believe that you’re out there
Stand up and say it loud if you’re out there
Tomorrow’s starting now…now…now

No more broken promises
No more call to war
Unless it’s Love and Peace that
We’re really fighting for

We can destroy Hunger
We can conquer Hate
Put down the arms and raise your voice
We’re joining hands today

I was looking for a song to sing
Searched for a leader
But the leader was me
We were looking for the world to change
We can be heroes
Just go on and say
If you’re out there
Sing along with me if you’re out there
I’m dying to believe that you’re out there
Stand up and say it loud if you’re out there
Tomorrow’s starting now…now…now

Whoa now…now…now

If you ready we can save the world
Believe again, start to mend
We don’t have to wait for destiny
We should be the change that we want to see
If you’re out there

If you’re out there
And you’re ready now
Sing it loud, scream it out
If you’re out there
Sing along with me if you’re out there
I’m dying to believe that you’re out there
Stand up and say it loud if you’re out there
Tomorrow’s starting now
If you’re out there
If you’re out there
If you’re out there

If you hear this message
Wherever you stand
I’m calling every woman
Calling ever man

We’re the generation
We can’t afford to wait
The future started yesterday
And we’re already late

John Legend – Take Me Away From Here

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged at 11:12 pm by LynxLee

This new song from John Legend gives a smooth vibe that’s nice to slow dance with. Nice and romantic-o.

Oh, la, la, la, la, la Yeah, yeah

We danced and sang somewhere in between heaven and hell
Gabrielle, that was her name
Everyone was smiling, even through
their tears, under a spell

But in Gabby’s eyes, nothing
I asked do you not like the music?
She said it’s alright
But she dances to her own sad tune she says

Take me away from here
Take me somewhere where love is like breathing
I don’t care where we go as long as
I’m there with you baby
Long as I’m there with you

I could tell, she’s been through pain I could only dream
Nightmares live where you live
Tears dwell in her eyes, but she wouldn’t let them fall

I’d give the world to know where her smile is
I asked would you dance with me now?
Help me try to figure out
The fastest route out of town and she says

Take me away from here
Take me somewhere, where love is like breathing
I don’t care where we go, long as
I’m there with you baby

Oh, oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, I got a full tank of gas girl
Anywhere you wanna go, girl
All you have to do is ask girl, oh she said

Take me away from here
Take me somewhere, where love is like breathing
I don’t care where we go, long as
I’m there with you baby

Come on and take me away
Take me somewhere, where love is like breathing
I don’t care where we go long as I’m there with you

John Legend – Everybody Knows

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged at 1:12 am by LynxLee

“It gets harder every day, but I can’t seem to shake the pain
I’m trying to find the words to say, please stay
It’s written all over my face, I can’t
Function the same when you’re not here
I’m calling your name and no one’s there”

“‘Cause everybody knows that, nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try”

“And I hope one day you’ll see nobody has it easy,
I still can’t believe you found somebody new
But I wish you the best, I guess.”

It gets harder every day, but I can’t seem to shake the pain
I’m trying to find the words to say, please stay
It’s written all over my face, I can’t
Function the same when you’re not here
I’m calling your name and no one’s there

[Hook]
And I hope one day you’ll see nobody has it easy,
I still can’t believe you found somebody new
But I wish you the best, I guess.

[Chorus]
‘Cause everybody knows that, nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, everybody knows
Just how to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try (try)
One more try (try, try)
One more try (try)
‘Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows
Oh oh, yeah

I don’t care what the people say
They brought it all in anyway
Baby don’t fill up your head, with he-said she-said
It seems like you just don’t know
The radio’s on, you tuning me out,
I’m trying to speak, you’re turning me down oh

[Hook]
And I know one day you’ll see nobody has it easy,
I still can’t believe you found somebody new
But I wish you the best, I guess.

[Chorus]
‘Cause everybody knows that, nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, everybody knows
Just how to make it right, I wish we gave it (one more try, try)
One more try (try, try)
(One more try)
‘Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

Oh I wish you’d understand
Oh, I’m just an ordinary man
Wished we’d had known
Everybody knows, but nobody really knows (oh oh oh)

[Hook]
And I know one day you’ll see, nobody has it easy
I still can’t believe you found somebody new
I wish you the best, I guess.

[Chorus]
‘Cause everybody knows that, nobody really knows
How to make it work, or how to ease the hurt
We’ve heard it all before, everybody knows
How to make it right, I wish we gave it one more try
(One more try)
One more try (try, try)
One more try (try)
‘Cause everybody knows, but nobody really knows

Ohh oh oh oh, ohh oh oh oh, ohh oh oh oh,
Nobody really knows
Ohh oh oh oh, ohh oh oh oh, ohh oh oh oh,
Nobody really knows [Fades]

John Legend – Save Room

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 3:05 am by LynxLee

This song was played around MixFm a bunch of times.. perhaps even in LiteFM. If you listen to the song by the music, it’s a mellow nice song.. If you listen to the lyrics, it’s sexy.. If you look at the video, it’s.. it’s.. well.. John Legend.. Haha..

I mean, come on.. only John Legend can make a song called “Number 1” about cheating on a girl & trying to convince that it’s just a fling, & that the girl is his number 1. I mean.. isn’t it obvious? Haha..

On contrary on what you believe, my life’s not really in Cloud 9. I mean… I feel rather lost.. confused.. Like.. Empty.. I mean, I haven’t been up to anything. I can’t even tell anyone that I’ve done anything. I even lost the feeling of writing this blog or my diary. My friend asked me “What’s up?” & I’ll probably wanna hear from him/her instead. It’s that empty.

Sure, I’m happy with my life.. but I feel like the best is yet to come. It’s boring staying still & doing nothing while everyone passes by. I feel way happier calling up a friend & just listening to them. Really..

If you stay, won’t you stay – stay

save room for my love
save room for a moment to be with me
save room for my love save a little
save a little for me
won’t you save a little
save a little for me – ohh

I know, I keep it burning right

If you stay, won’t you stay – stay

save room for my love
save room for a moment to be with me
save room for my love save a little
save a little for me
won’t you save a little
save a little for me – ohh

This just might hurt a little
love hurts sometimes when you do it right
Don’t be affraid of a little bit of pain
pleasure is just on the other side

Let down your guard just a little
I keep you safe in these arms of mine
Hold on to me – pretty baby
You will see I can be all you need

If you stay, won’t you stay – stay

save room for my love
save room for a moment to be with me
save room for my love save a little
save a little for me
won’t you save a little
save a little for me – ohh

[pa-ya-pa-pa] – [pa-ya-pa-pa] – [pa-ya-pa-pa] – [da-da-da]

Ohhh come on

Make time to live a little
don’t let this moment slip by tonight
you never know what you are missing untill you try
I keep you satisfied
if you stay, won’t you stay – stay

save room for my love
save room for a moment to be with me
save room for my love save a little
save a little for me
won’t you save a little
save a little for me – ohh

save room for love
save room for a moment to be with me
save a little, save a little for me
won’t you save a little
save a little for me

John Legend – P.D.A (We Just Don’t Care)

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 9:46 pm by LynxLee

I’m sure we all know all the naughty things that a couple can do when they are in love.. or lust, for that matter. This song from John Legend simply explores the musical expression for all the naughty things that we all do. Well, guess how are we born? Haha.. =P John Legend makes it clear that he’s good at making music about making love. Haha.. =)
Need I say more? Read below..

I see you’re closing down the restaurant
Let’s sneak and do it when your boss is gone
Everybody’s leaving, we’ll have some fun
Oh, maybe it’s wrong, but you’re turnin’ me on
Oh, we’ll take a visit to your mama’s house
Creep to the bedroom while your mama’s out
Maybe she’ll hear it when we scream and shout,
but we’ll keep it rockin’ until she comes knockin’

Let’s go to the park
I wanna kiss you underneath the stars
Maybe we’ll go too far
We just don’t care
We just don’t care
We just don’t care

You know I love it when you’re loving me
But sometimes it’s better when it’s publicly
I’m not ashamed, I don’t care who sees
us hugging and kissing, a love exibition, oh

We’ll rendezvous out on the fire escape
I’d like to set off an alarm today
A love emergency don’t make me wait
Just follow, I’ll lead you
I urgently need you

Let’s go to the park
I wanna kiss you underneath the stars
Maybe we’ll go too far
We just don’t care
We just don’t care
We just don’t care

Let’s make love,
let’s go somewhere they might discover us
Let’s get lost in lust
We just don’t care
We just don’t care
We just don’t care

I see you’re closing down the restaurant
Let’s sneak and do it when your boss is gone
Everybody’s leaving, we’ll have some fun
Oh, maybe it’s wrong, but you’re turnin’ me on
Oh, we’ll take a visit to your mama’s house
Creep to the bedroom while your mama’s out
Maybe she’ll hear it when we scream and shout,
but we’ll keep it rockin’ until she comes knockin’

Let’s go to the park
I wanna kiss you underneath the stars
Maybe we’ll go too far
We just don’t care
We just don’t care
We just don’t care

Let’s make love,
let’s go somewhere they might discover us
Let’s get lost in lust
We just don’t care
We just don’t care
We just don’t care

If we keep up all this foolin’ around
We’ll be the talk of the town
I’ll tell the world of our love any time
Let’s open the blinds
‘Cause we really don’t mind

Oh, I don’t care about propriety
Let’s break the rules, ignore society
Maybe our neighbors like to spy, it’s true
So what if they watch when we do what we do

Let’s go to the park
I wanna kiss you underneath the stars
Maybe we’ll go too far
We just don’t care
We just don’t care
We just don’t…

Let’s make love,
let’s go somewhere they might discover us
Let’s get lost in lust…
