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

Pink – U + Ur Hand

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 1:11 am by LynxLee

U+Ur Hand? Haha.. we get it.. This song grabs ya right on ya.. *ahem* Anyway, strong song from Pink with the emphasis on “Not Playing Around”. I mean, if you think about it, these days, we gotta get tougher, ya know? This song is the second song that’s being played on FlyFM when I was on the way back home from class. The first was Stacie Orrico’s I’m not missing you (the previous post). I’ll let ya know what’s the third song. It’s getting better.. no kidding you.. haha.. Once again, Pink with a good concrete attitude. I like it when she shouts,
“I’m not here for your entertainment
You don’t really want to mess with me tonight”
“I was fine before you walked into my life”
“You know it’s over before it began”
“It’s just you and your hand tonight”

Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh oh
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh oh
Check it out
Going out
On the late night
Looking tight
Feeling nice
It’s a **** fight
I can tell
I just know
That it’s going down
Tonight
At the door we don’t wait cause we know them
At the bar six shots just beginning
That’s when dick head put his hands on me
But you see

I’m not here for your entertainment
You don’t really want to mess with me tonight
Just stop and take a second
I was fine before you walked into my life
Cause you know it’s over
Before it began
Keep your drink just give me the money
It’s just you and your hand tonight

Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh oh
Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh oh

Midnight
I’m drunk
I don’t give a ***k
Wanna dance
By myself
Guess you’re outta luck
Don’t touch
Back up
I’m not the one
Buh bye
Listen up it’s just not happening
You can say what you want to your boyfriends
Just let me have my fun tonight
Aiight

I’m not here for your entertainment
You don’t really want to mess with me tonight
Just stop and take a second
I was fine before you walked into my life
Cause you know it’s over
Before it began
Keep your drink just give me the money
It’s just you and your hand tonight

Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh oh
Break break
Break it down

In the corner with your boys you bet up five bucks
To get at the girl that just walked in but she thinks you suck
We didn’t get all dressed up just for you to see
So quit spilling your drinks on me yeah

You know who you are
High fivin, talkin ****, but you’re going home alone arentcha?

Cause I’m not here for your entertainment
No
You don’t really want to mess with me tonight
Just stop and take a second
Just stop and take a second
I was fine before you walked into my life
Cause you know it’s over
Know it’s over
Before it began
Keep your drink just give me the money
It’s just you and your hand tonight
It’s just you and your hand

I’m not here for your entertainment
No no no
You don’t really want to mess with me tonight
Just stop and take a second
Just take a second
I was fine before you walked into my life
Cause you know it’s over
Before it began
Keep your drink just give me the money
It’s just you and your hand tonight
Yeah oh
