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?

JoJo – Anything

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 12:44 am by LynxLee

Yesterday after my Linux class, I went to KL Sentral to visit my high school friend & today I went to Kepong to meet up some college friend (whom later introduced me to a pretty gorgeous girl). I have to admit, if I went home or go to gym after my usual 9 to 5, I’d be having the same life I usually have. But this time, the times I meet my good friends were such a blast. Even as simple as a dinner. We laughed & talked all the way home. It’s pretty great how everything works out when we want it to. Sure I had some bad or sad times.. but doing something different a day practically changed my mood as a whole, somehow.

As usual, driving to my Linux training in Mid Valley from Subang is quite a drag; especially at peak hours. Likewise when going back home. Yet, just because of the great DJs of FlyFM, (my favourite radio station) or RedFM (whenever I hear some occasional boring tunes from FlyFM); it’s not so bad anymore.. In fact, this is the reason I post this song tonight; it’s been playing on FlyFM every morning & evening. I love this song to bits.. JoJo provides a breezy & delicious vocal to it. Check out her performance videos. (Her music video’s not out yet at time of posting). In case anyone thinks the song seems familiar, the background & starting of the song is a heavy sample from “Africa” by Toto.

Yep.. I’d do anything, baby; do anything for ya.

Dan

Cause every time that we rendezvous
I don’t wanna go back home
And every time that I’m holding you
Ain’t no way to let you go
You’re shining down boy the game is through
Listen I don’t wanna play no more
Cause the only one that I want is you
Tell me what you wanna do because baby

Cause I just can’t stay away
There’s nothing that I can do
And baby you can have your way
Just as long as I can have you

And I’d do anything baby
Do anything for ya
And I’d do anything baby
Do anything for ya


Yo I don’t know
What you do when you do what you do boy
But baby baby baby baby
I don’t even care no more
You’ve got me so
Caught up in ya spell its voodoo boy
But Baby baby baby babe
wanna be there for sure

Cause every time that we rendezvous
I don’t wanna go back home
And every time that I’m holding you
Ain’t no way to let you go
You’re shining down boy the game is through
Listen I don’t wanna play no more
Cause the only one that I want is you
Tell me what you wanna do because baby

Cause I just can’t stay away
There’s nothing that I can do
And baby you can have your way
Just as long as I can have you

And I’d do anything baby
Do anything for ya
And I’d do anything baby
Do anything for ya

Now I’ve been told
That you got you a few but you ain’t sure
But Baby baby baby baby
You gon wanna let them go
Cause I’ve been sold
On you I don’t check for dudes no more
baby baby baby baby
you know where ya’ll wanna roll

Cause every time that we rendezvous
I don’t wanna go back home
And every time that I’m holding you
Ain’t no way to let you go
You’re shining down boy the game is through
Listen I don’t wanna play no more
And the only one that I want is you
So tell me what you wanna do because baby

Cause I just can’t stay away
There’s nothing that I can do
And baby you can have your way
Just as long as I can have you
And I’d do anything baby
Do anything for ya

I’m down anything, boy, you and me
It’s the way you know it’s supposed to be
Cause I would do anything for you baby
I’m down anything, boy, you and me
Should be doin what we both know comes naturally
Cause i would do anything
Baby cause I

Cause I just can’t stay away
There ain’t nothing that I can do
And baby you can have your way
Just as long as I can have you
And I’d do anything baby
Do anything for ya
And I’d do anything baby
Do anything for ya

Jojo – Let It Rain

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 9:14 pm by LynxLee

If you like a nice flow of a song, check this song out. Jojo gives a good vocal style. Remember my last post? A new relationship might be the cure to the pain of the past. In my personal experience, it can only heal for a while.. either that or I’m just not that steady or consistent. Any feedback? Does a new love patch up all the past & heals your soul making you feel better & not be looking back anymore?

I was watching the American Idol’s Seattle’s Audition. I like the people who actually qualified. They are amazing! It’s a rainy season, & as we speak, now, it’s raining the moment I wrote this. Wow, power of music, huh? Haha.. =P Oh heck, let it rain! (as long as I’m safe back home) =)

Cheers,
Dan

But I, had to let go of the pain
Let love rain down on me (let it rain)
‘Cause you helped me open up my eyes, showed me things I could never see (let it rain)
‘Cause we can fight, and we make up,
Wanna see you when I wake up
I’ll stay with you only (let it rain)
Cause I need you to show me how our love should really be (let it rain).

Let it rain [x2]

From the first day I met ya, I noticed your style
Had that B-boy swagger, not one of the crowd
And you talked like you knew me, kept comin’ around
And I fell for ya, yeah.

Then as time kept going, I noticed some things
That our love kept growing, wanted to run away
‘Cause the situations in the past, none of them really last
Memories just had a hold of me, ohhh.

But I, had to let go of the pain
Let love rain down on me (let it rain)
‘Cause you helped me open up my eyes, showed me things I could never see (let it rain)
‘Cause we can fight, and we make up,
Wanna see you when I wake up
I’ll stay with you only (let it rain)
Cause I need you to show me how our love should really be (let it rain).

I used to wonder where we’re going, and where I wanted to be
Sittin’ alone, all shook up when I found my destiny
Hearing songs on the radio, wishin’ that could happen for me, oh ohh (ohh oh)
Then when you came in the picture, then I knew quickly
That we could build something so strong
Expect the best for the future, forget about what used to be
I need you here all life long.

But I, had to let go of the pain
Let love rain down on me
on me (let it rain)
‘Cause you helped me open up my eyes, showed me things I could never see
never see(let it rain)
‘Cause we can fight, and we make up,
Wanna see you when I wake up
I’ll stay with you only
stay with you only (let it rain)
Cause I need you to show me how our love should really be
love should really be (let it rain)

‘Cause I see the sunlight whenever we touch,
All day and all night, it’s never too much
Afraid of my feelings and falling too deep,
But everybody’s had this happen one time or another
When you need somebody to set your heart free, ohh ohhh.

But I, had to let go of the pain
Let love rain down on me (let it rain down, down on me, yeah)
‘Cause you helped me open up my eyes, showed me things I could never see (let it rain)
‘Cause we can fight, and we make up,
Wanna see you when I wake up, whoa whoa
I’ll stay with you only, oh ohh
Cause I need you to show me how our love should really be
love should really be(let it rain)

But I, had to let go of the pain
Let love rain down on me
down on me baby (let it rain)
‘Cause you helped me open up my eyes, showed me things I could never see (let it rain)
‘Cause we can fight, and we make up,
Wanna see you when I wake up,
I’ll stay with you only (let it rain)
Cause I need you to show me how our love should really be (let it rain)

Oooooo, ohh oh, let it rain [x4]
