Juwita Suwito – Belle of the Ball

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 11:26 am by LynxLee

I heard this track from litefm for the past few days, and I initially thought of “Barbra Streisand” thinking the title of this song was “Cold December” or “Sweet September”. I even launched Shazam while I was at the wheel (traffic light) but Shazam couldn’t identify the music. It took me some time listening to start realizing the track should be “Belle of the Ball” – which means Beautiful Girl of the Prom (or any other dancing event). Belle is “Beautiful” in French, so yeah – the song stuck in my mind for a while.. especially the gorgeous lyrics.

Funny fact, my wife is born in December (Cold December) and I was born in September (Sweet September). Just ponder through that for a while. Hehe.. my wife is gonna be so angry.. hehe.. Just playing around. I loved Juwita Suwito’s previous track “All This Time” and I’ve gotta say.. she’s getting better everytime.

Innocent Sweet September
Belle of the Ball
You had it all
When did you fall into Cold December?
You’re not the girl that I remember
Belle of the Ball
You could still have it all


In the heart of sleepy town
A reminiscent old battleground
A tempest rages
Thunders roar
Teardrops ricochet off the ground
At the centre of it all
So oblivious in your spoil
Naval-gazing, there you smile
Shadow dancing to wild applauseBeautiful blessed daughter
Innocent Sweet September
Belle of the Ball
You had it all
When did you fall into Cold December?
You’re not the girl that I remember
Belle of the Ball
You could still have it allAren’t you tired of endless lies
Empty promises
Shifty eyes
How do you sleep?
You oathed, you swore
You’ve become the one you so despised

Beautiful blessed daughter
Innocent Sweet September
Belle of the Ball
When did you fall into this blessed curse?
Cold December holds you tight
But you are stronger
Belle of the Ball
You could still have it all

Will you rise from your mighty super?
Only you can break the spell
Don’t let us down
You wear a crown

Beautiful blessed daughter
Innocent Sweet September
Belle of the Ball
You had it all
When did you fall into Cold December?
You’re not the girl that I remember
Belle of the Ball
You could still have it all

Cause you are stronger
You could still have it all
Have it all

Belle of the Ball

MH370 Tribute- While We Have The Time

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , , , , , at 10:34 am by LynxLee

As you guys would know by now, MH17 was shot down and the wreckage is found in Ukraine. After MH370, this is the second tragedy for Malaysian Airlines.

This nice track was posted in my Facebook a while ago; and as usual, I like these sentimental tracks. We should appreciate our time here, as we all know. Life is short, but incredible.

Picture Credit: WikipediaHave you made it right with Him before your time is up
Have you made it right with others before they leave this earth
If you haven’t loved your neighbour as you love yourself
Its time to make it right while we have the time
(Its time to get it right)

Verse 1
It doesn’t matter what you’re worth rich or just as poor
It doesn’t matter who you are famous or unknown
Its not about the colour or faith in which thereof
We are as we are

Verse 2
Different or the same we’re subjected to the pain
In trials or in shame our tears are all the same
But a common understanding made know to everyone
There is GOD, there is GOD

Chorus
Have you made it right with Him before your time is up
Have you made it right with others before they leave this earth
If you haven’t loved your neighbour as you love yourself
Its time to make it right while we have the time
(Its time to get it right)

Verse 3
Life is not a political game of pow’r and fame
Life is not about our ways, of selfie’s or my name
But life’s about the blessing of being alive each day
So thank God, thank God

Juwita Suwito – All This Time

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 1:24 pm by LynxLee

Juwita Suwito is pretty much one of Malaysia’s awesome vocalists with cool edge and is also a gifted songwriter. She was entrusted as the vocal coach for Malaysian Idol in 2004 & has been guest coach for reality shows like ‘One in a Million’ and ‘Mentor’.

Please do correct me if I have my facts incorrectly, but her (official) websites are JuwitaSuwito.com & Her MySpace (yeah, I heard it from a radio or Hitz.TV, not the other one).

Do listen to this song if you’re a fan of love songs. Especially if you’re overseas (not Malaysian) or if you never heard of this song (even if you’re Malaysian). This song is pretty much the best song that I’ve heard from Juwita Suwito so far. I mean, sure.. Walk Away was okie.. for a while.. SMS (one of her songs) got boring real fast.. but this song.. it’s a keeper. I mean, the melody & the delivery of the song. The whole feel to it.

I’m no expert, but I do enjoy listening to music. Call me the Simon Cowell of Malaysia, if you will. I just like to go on talking about music that I like.

The video is really cute; with a smart idea of captions on their shirts to express their thoughts. A very emotional song with a great music video to match. (Directed by Virginia Kennedy)

Btw, check out the cute girl with flour all over her face in the end of the video.. hehe.. real cute. =P

Great Job Juwita Suwito, & Thanks for this beautiful song & video!

Can I let the wind blow?
Leave the past behind?
The memories may cloud my mind
I know I crossed the line
Should I just journey on alone
I can’t bear to find
The pain I caused you all this time
When I look in your eyes

I’m gonna let the wind blow
Leave the past behind
The memories will do just fine
They’ll saturate in time
Don’t have to make it all alone
Cos in your eyes I find
The tears that loved me all the time

You loved me all this time

I knew you loved me
I chose to go
Knew that you would find me
But I pretended not to know
It wasn’t cos I was unhappy
It wasn’t cos I was blind
Or could I have been when I said

I’m gonna let the wind blow
Leave the past behind
The memories will do just fine
They’ll saturate in time
I’m gonna make it on my own
Make it on my own

I took the highway
Built on sand
I knew you’d be there for me
But I refused to hold your hand
The going’s good all around me
But deep inside I can’t find a reason to live without you

Can I let the wind blow?
Leave the past behind?
The memories may cloud my mind
I know I crossed the line
Should I just journey on alone
I can’t bear to find
The pain I caused you all this time
When I look in your eyes

I’m gonna let the wind blow
Leave the past behind
The memories will do just fine
They’ll saturate in time
Don’t have to make it all alone
Cos in your eyes I find
The tears that loved me all the time

All the time

I’m gonna let the wind blow
Leave the past behind
The memories will do just fine
They’ll saturate in time
Don’t have to make it all alone
Cos in your eyes I find
The tears that loved me all the time

You loved me all this time
