Kari Kimmel – Every Second

Posted in Lyrics, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , at 11:29 am by LynxLee

If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you’d know I simply love artists that bear their soul. Love songs, family, expression of struggles, hope, strength, faith and a lot more.

I do judge a book by it’s cover; but for what’s it worth – I do dedicate myself to certain people I like/love and change accordingly. I don’t waste time when it comes to feelings, I mean – we’re living every second until the day we die.. shouldn’t we measure it by love?

Kari Kimmel has always been a favourite for me ever since I heard her songs. Bear in mind I’m all the way here in Malaysia listening to artists in United States. I’ve listened to her 11 tracks in her latest album (released two days ago – 15th June 2016) and identified track 1, 8 (this one) and 11 to be the best ones (food for the sentimental soul of mine). Feel free to click on her album below and support her via iTunes. And yes, I did write the lyrics below by hand – obviously copyrighted by Kari Kimmel’s Recording Company.

She posted the below under Facebook:
“Having spent the past year welcoming her baby Poppy into the world, aptly titled “Poppyfields”, this album captures Kari at her most vulnerable, harnessing a collection of songs written for film that capture those familiar moments that make us feel alive.”

Can’t get more “vulnerable” than this track.

Travel over, Hold on, Express yourself – we won’t know what’s coming; but we’d know what we’d lose if we don’t.

Don’t waste “every second”. Go for it.

I feel your fingers when you’re holding tight to me
I can’t believe we’re standing here
I couldn’t write a better story on a crazy dream
We were always meant to be

I can’t believe this is real
And I can’t believe it’s happening
You’re everything to me
There isn’t a doubt in my mind
Nothing could be more perfect or right

I’m falling way too hard
I’m falling way too far
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you
I risked it all
So deep in love
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you

I feel your fingers when you’re holding tight to me
I can’t believe we’re standing here
I couldn’t write a better story on a crazy dream
We were always meant to be

And that’s what keeps me holding on

I’m falling way too hard
I’m falling way too far
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you
I risked it all
So deep in love
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you

I’ve been waiting for this for so long

I can’t explain it
I just know I can’t walk away
I know that I can’t walk away

Sometimes it’s so crazy game I don’t know how to play
But I know that you feel the same

That’s what keeps me holding on

I’m falling way too hard
I’m falling way too far
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you
I risked it all
So deep in love
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you

I can’t believe this is real
And I can’t believe it’s happening
You’re everything to me
There isn’t a doubt in my mind
Nothing could be more perfect or right

I’m falling way too hard
I’m falling way too far
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you
I risked it all
So deep in love
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you

I’ve been waiting for this for so long

Kari Kimmel – Dreamer

Please feel free to add me in Spotify (Username: LynxLee). I’ve been listening to her album a lot, this track just caught my ear. https://play.spotify.com/track/3Z8P1DtcE0h6dE2fI6rX38

51anIISYU3LWith every other word you made me yours
With every wish you breathed
And every promise
Yeah, yeah
How did you read my mind,
Tell me every line that I longed to hear
Well you were so convincing
But you left me empty
I remember when we were both so naive
And now you’re telling me that you never believed

I’m a dreamer
Who should’ve known better
But I thought you had a dream here too
I’m a dreamer who should’ve known better
Cuz now I have to live, I have to live
In this dream without you

I used to laugh aloud when you were around, now you’re far away
Can’t even hear me
With every other word you said to me as I fell asleep
Now they’re fading whispers
I can’t remember
I believed we were in this together
Giving everything for a chance at forever

I’m a dreamer
Who should’ve known better
But I thought you had a dream here too
I’m a dreamer who should’ve known better
Cuz now I have to live, I have to live
In this dream without you

With every other word you made me yours
With every wish you breathed
And every promise
Yeah, yeah
How did you read my mind,
Tell me every line that I longed to hear
Well you were so convincing
But you left me empty
I remember when we were both so naive
And now you’re telling me that you never believed

I’m a dreamer
Who should’ve known better
But I thought you had a dream here too
I’m a dreamer who should’ve known better
Cuz now I have to live, I have to live
In this dream without you

And then it all becomes too much
Couldn’t you fight a little harder for us
You traded dreams for reality
And promises you couldn’t keep
And nothing was the way it seemed

I’m a dreamer
Who should’ve known better
But I thought you had a dream here too, yeah
I’m a dreamer who should’ve known better
Cuz now I have to live, I have to live
In this dream without you
I should’ve known better
Oh, and I thought you had a dream here too, yeah
I’m a dreamer
Who should’ve known better
Cuz now I have to live, I have to live in this dream without you

Kari Kimmel – Where You Belong

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , , at 4:11 pm by LynxLee

Ever since I heard Kari Kimmel’s song Watching Over You, I’ve been listening to her music a lot. This track resonates with me very well since I’m pretty home based lately. It’s great to hear music that places so much love and care in the words and vocals – I understand it’s not popular or viral; but it’s those little emotions that we don’t really have time for sometimes. This track just makes me feel warm, inside.

karikimmelwhereyoubelongIt’s not where you come from
It’s where you belong
Nothin’ I would trade
I wouldn’t have it any other way
You’re surrounded
By love and you’re wanted
So never feel alone
You are home with me
Right where you belong

If you’re feeling down or weak
You can always count on me
I will always pick you up
Nothing’s ever gonna change
Nothing’s gettin’ in my way
I will always hold you up

Anything
Come what may
Don’t look back forget yesterday
Forget yesterday

[Chorus:]
It’s not where you come from
It’s where you belong
Nothin’ I would trade
I wouldn’t have it any other way
You’re surrounded
By love and you’re wanted
So never feel alone
You are home with me
Right where you belong

I know sometimes you’re feeling lost
It’s hard to find your place in it all
But you don’t have to fear
Even when you mess up
You always got my love
I’m always right here
Oh, cause

Anything
Come what may
Don’t look back forget yesterday
Forget yesterday (ay)

[Chorus]

Oooo Oooo (Oooo) [x2]
Don’t matter where you’ve been
Oooo Oooo (Oooo) [x2]
You’re here for a reason

Oooo Oooo (Oooo)
Nooo

[Chorus]

Kari Kimmel – Watching Over You

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 2:47 pm by LynxLee

I was watching a movie called “A Tiger’s Tail” on tv while babysitting my daughter yesterday. This beautiful music played in one of the scenes. I’d thought I share it with you guys. I’m surprised this track didn’t have a music video. It’s real sentimental and touching. It kinda helps that I’m a legal Guardian now. Oh how I’ve grown. Remember that there’s always someone who cares. Look around.

I’m closer than you think
I’m there when you’re asleep
When you’ve falling down
Every second you’re awake
Every moment, everyday
Call out to me now

Don’t have to say a word, whichever way you turn
Don’t have to worry, I’m watching over you
I’m never far away, don’t have to be afraid
Look up I’ll always be watching over you

Hope seems lost, you’re so scared
Not sure which way to go
Nothing makes sense
It’s un familiar and you’re feeling all alone

I’m closer than you think
I’m there when you’re asleep
When you’ve falling down
Every second you’re awake
Every moment, everyday
Call out to me now

Don’t have to say a word, whichever way you turn
Don’t have to worry, I’m watching over you
I’m never far away, don’t have to be afraid
Look up I’ll always be watching over you

I’m right here even when it seems I’m so far out of reach
Take my hands, I got you safely in my arms
Hold on to me

‘Cause I’m closer than you think
I’m there when you’re asleep
When you’ve falling down
Every second you’re awake
Every moment, everyday
Just call out to me now

Don’t have to say a word, whichever way you turn
Don’t have to worry, I’m watching over you
I’m never far away, don’t have to be afraid
Look up I’ll always be watching over you

I’ll protect you from the storms
When the wind and rain is falling all around you
Oh, I’m just a star away
Close your eyes and you will see,
That I’ve already found you

Don’t have to say a word, whichever way you turn
Don’t have to worry, I’m watching over you
I’m never far away, don’t have to be afraid
Look up I’ll always be watching over you

Don’t have to say a word, whichever way you turn
Don’t have to worry, I’m watching over you
I’m never far away, don’t have to be afraid
Look up I’ll always be watching over you
