Tim McGraw – Humble And Kind

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , , at 10:31 am by LynxLee

If you think that good music and good lyrics are only around back in the days, you’ve probably haven’t been searching hard enough. Tim McGraw’s raw advice lyrics instills good principles and values into the listeners. This would be the great type of song to get the young ones to listen and enjoy it. The music video itself is a work of art, a celebration of life. With so many things happening around us these days, it’s hard to like people singing to do the right thing or always speaking out that they’re happy; but tracks like these won’t bother you – they’re just giving you good advice – Talk Less, Smile More. Always Stay Humble and Kind.

humbleandkind-660x400Hold the door say please say thank you
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got moutains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

You know there’s a light that glows by the front door
Don’t forget the keys under the mat
When childhood stars shine, always stay humble and kind
Go to church cause your momma says too
Visit grandpa every chance that you can
It won’t be wasted time
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door say please say thank you
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got moutains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

Don’t expect a free ride from no one
Don’t hold a grudge or a chip and here’s why
Bitterness keeps you from flying
Always stay humble and kind
Know the difference with sleeping with someone
And sleeping with someone you love
I love you ain’t no pick up line so
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door say please say thank you
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got moutains to climb but
Always stay humble and kind
When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride but
Always stay humble and kind

When it’s hot, eat a root beer popsicle
Shut off the ac and roll the windows down
Let that summer sun shine
Always stay humble and kind
Don’t take for granted the love this life gives you
When you get where you’re goin’
Don’t forget turn back around
And help the next one in line
Always stay humble and kind

Coldplay – Everglow

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged , , , , at 10:08 am by LynxLee

For some reason today I’m out of words, so I’ll refer you to genius.com/Coldplay-everglow-lyrics

121d10df6d77519c2737d1a528812333.253x277x90Oh, they say people come, say people go
This particular diamond was extra special
And though you might be gone, and the world may not know
Still I see you, celestial

Like a lion you ran, a goddess you rolled
Like an eagle, you circle, in perfect purple
So how come things move on? How come cars don’t slow?
When it feels like the end of my world
When I should, but I can’t, let you go?

[Chorus 1]
But when I’m cold, cold
Oh, when I’m cold, cold
There’s a light that you give me when I’m in shadow
There’s a feeling you give me, an everglow

[Verse 1]
Oh, they say people come, say people go
This particular diamond was extra special
And though you might be gone, and the world may not know
Still I see you, celestial

Like a lion you ran, a goddess you rolled
Like an eagle, you circle, in perfect purple
So how come things move on? How come cars don’t slow?
When it feels like the end of my world
When I should, but I can’t, let you go?

[Chorus 1]
But when I’m cold, cold
Oh, when I’m cold, cold
There’s a light that you give me when I’m in shadow
There’s a feeling you give me, an everglow

[Verse 2]
Like brothers in blood, sisters who ride
And we swore on that night we’d be friends ’til we die
But the changing of winds, and the way waters flow
Life is short as the falling of snow
And now, I’m gonna miss you, I know

[Chorus 2]
But when I’m cold, cold
In water rolled, salt
I know that you’re always with me and the way you will show
And you’re with me wherever I go
And you give me this feeling, this everglow

[Bridge]
Oh, what I would give for just a moment to hold
Yeah, I live for this feeling, it’s everglow

[Outro]
So if you love someone, you should let them know
Oh, the light that you left me will everglow

Shawn Hook – Sound Of Your Heart

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , , , , , at 10:48 am by LynxLee

There was a post recently about how great it feels to be single and waking up in your home that you own, doing anything that you like. No schedules, no dependencies, no emotions to affect, no rights/wrongs and so on. I found it for your reference.

I read it and my friend (who was married) said that that’s how it feels like and it’s quite addictive. That is something I can’t process for some reason. Addictive to be living independently alone. I watched “Mr. Robot” recently and even hackers get stoned trying to deal with the thought of being alone, psychiatrist too. Maybe it’s how I grown up, maybe it’s just me. I never liked to be alone.

There’s always the fun of affecting people – whether bad or good. Now that’s addicting to me. Sometimes you can’t help but affect someone in a bad way, I don’t think that wrong, I personally think that’s just a different point of view. Try wearing their shoes.. (not literally) Perhaps you might change your mind? Then again, being too dependant on people isn’t as good. I guess in the end of the day, it’s up to us.

We pick the sound we want to hear – some just like the sound of heartbeats.

Shawn_Hook_-_Sound_of_Your_Heart_(Official_Single_Cover)You were my courage
My sword and shield
Grace under pressure
My wall of steel
I was a stone
Weighing us down
You were the angel I chained to the ground
I miss the way you undress
I miss your head on my chest

You showed me heaven
You rang a bell
I played with matches
It hurt like hell
Asleep, awake
You’re all I see
I can’t escape you, can’t set you free
I miss your full moon rising
Catching a breath in silence

[Verse 1]
You were my courage
My sword and shield
Grace under pressure
My wall of steel
I was a stone
Weighing us down
You were the angel I chained to the ground
I miss the way you undress
I miss your head on my chest

[Pre-Chorus]
Can’t stop this bleeding
Can’t stop you leaving
I’m missing the sound of your heart beating

[Chorus]
Baby I’m in love with you
Oh, and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
Baby you were mine to lose
Oh, and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating

[Verse 2]
You showed me heaven
You rang a bell
I played with matches
It hurt like hell
Asleep, awake
You’re all I see
I can’t escape you, can’t set you free
I miss your full moon rising
Catching a breath in silence

[Pre-Chorus]
Can’t stop this bleeding
Can’t stop you leaving
I’m missing the sound of your heart beating

[Chorus]
Baby I’m in love with you
Oh, and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
Baby you were mine to lose
Oh, and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating

[Hook]
(Missing you, missing you)
I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
(Missing you, missing you)
I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
Baby I’m comin, baby I’m comin
Tell me now baby I’ll come running
Baby I’m comin, baby I’m comin
Say the word baby I’ll come running

[Chorus]
Baby I’m in love with you
Oh, and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
Baby you were mine to lose
Oh, and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating

[Outro]
Oh, I’m missing the sound, I’m missing the sound of your beating, beating
I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
Missing you, missing you
Oh and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
Missing you, missing you
Oh, and I’m missing the sound of your heart beating
Beating, beating
Oh, I’m missing the sound of your heart beating

Scotty McCreery – I Love You This Big

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 7:14 am by LynxLee

American Idol Season 10 Winner hits a home-run with this track. Of course, the lyrics are pretty straight forward.

It’s all about Love

Just a quick dedication to my wife. Yes, this big. =D

Scotty McCreery

I Love You This Big

By the way my heart starts pounding
When I look into your eyes
I might look a little silly
Standing with my arms stretched open wide.

I love you this big
Eyes have never seen… this big
No-one’s ever dreamed… this big
And I’ll spend the rest of my life
Explaining what words cannot describe but, I’ll try
I love you this big


I know I’m still young
But, I know how I feel
I might not have too much experience
But, I know when love is real.

By the way my heart starts pounding
When I look into your eyes
I might look a little silly
Standing with my arms stretched open wide.

I love you this big
Eyes have never seen… this big
No-one’s ever dreamed… this big
And I’ll spend the rest of my life
Explaining what words cannot describe but, I’ll try
I love you this big

I’ll love you to the moon and back
I’ll love you all the time
Deeper than the ocean
And higher than the pines.

Cause girl, you do something to me
Deep down in my heart
I know I look a little crazy
Standing with my arms stretched all apart.

I love you this big
Eyes have never seen… this big
No-one’s ever dreamed… this big
And I’ll spend the rest of my life
Explaining what words cannot describe but, I’ll try
I love you this big

So much bigger than I ever dreamed my heart ever would
I love you this big
And I’d write your name in stars across the sky
If I could, I would

I love you this big
Oh, eyes have never seen… this big
No-one’s ever dreamed… this big
And I’ll spend the rest of my life
Explaining what words cannot describe but, I’ll try
I love you this big

I love you this big
Oh, eyes have never seen… this big
No-one’s ever dreamed… this big
And I’ll spend the rest of my life
Explaining what words cannot describe but, I’ll try
I love you this big

George Canyon – My Name

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , at 7:01 am by LynxLee

For some strange reason, I relate this track to Scotty McCreery – I Love You This Big. Maybe it’s just country music. I heard this track is a very popular one about miscarriages, now do check out the lyrics. How’s that for expression? If you didn’t know the meaning of the lyrics, might you not enjoy it?

Here’s a good description from SongFacts:
“This song is about a baby inside the mother’s womb. The baby is expressing his/her only emotion – love – and what it feels like to be on the inside. Then the baby talks about being born and how he/she takes God’s hand and leaves for heaven. The baby knows his/her parents love the baby just the same even though they had never and may never meet. Basically, it’s about parents who experience a miscarriage or a still birth. (thanks, Jhena – Rifle, CO)”

God Bless

George Canyon

It’s cold in here feels like everything’s upside down
I can feel you talking but I can barely make out the sound
I been kicking around these parts, feels like a year
I’m gonna change this world if I ever get out of here
She wants to dress me in pink, paint’s my bedroom blue
And I just laugh to myself, cause only I know the truth
This love is my only emotion
Haven’t learned any fear any pain
It’s kind of funny with all this commotion
I guess they’ve got me, to blame
They don’t even know my name
They don’t even know my name

Well I’ve never felt so ready, think it’s finally time
Cause that big old world is waiting, and it’s mine all mine
Just then everything got real quiet, it got real bright
And a man took my hand said don’t worry, Mommas gonna be alright
Then he opened the gate, & I followed him in
Said you can wait right, here till it’s your turn again
And his love is the one true emotion
Heaven knows no fear no pain
I never got to set my wheels in motion
They loved me just the same
And they didn’t even know my name
Didn’t even know my name
You loved me just the same
And you didn’t even know my name

Rachel Aldous – A Mother’s Prayer

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , at 6:38 am by LynxLee

Words by Rachel Aldous (YouTube)
Music by John Mandeville

For those who likes Darla Day – Love of My Life (The Wedding Song) and Celine Dion – A Mother’s Prayer, this song might be of interest to you too. I stumbled upon this when I was searching for Celine Dion’s A Mother’s Prayer and found out it has over 1.5 million views.

I thought I’d share it too. Hope you like it too.

IPO Artist
My sweet baby on loan from above.
No better treasure could I more love.
I stand here beside your bed as I pray
I lay my hand on your head and I say

May you grow up to serve Him
all of your days.
May He lead you and guide you
in all of your ways.
May His hand bless your future with
friendships that last.
May you cherish your youth
and not grow up too fast

I stare in wonder at your tiny frame.
Just to think that God knows you by name.
He knows every hair on your beautiful head.
He knows your thoughts before they are said.

Verse:
My sweet baby on loan from above.
No better treasure could I more love.
I stand here beside your bed as I pray
I lay my hand on your head and I say:

Chorus:
May you grow up to serve Him
all of your days.
May He lead you and guide you
in all of your ways.
May His hand bless your future with
friendships that last.
May you cherish your youth
and not grow up too fast

Verse:

May He lead you and guide you
in all of your ways.
May His Hand bless your future with
friendships that last.

Prayer:
May God grant you peace
in the midst of a storm.
May God give you strength even
when you’re forlorn.
May you answer the door when
Jesus comes knocking.
May wisdom guide when
your mouth is talking.
May discretion protect you
and keep you pure.
May you never stumble
or fall for a lure.
May your heart remain humble
to the very end.
May uprightness and truth
be what you defend.
May the world not ensnare
or change who you are.
May the light that’s within you
shine like the stars.
May angels surround you
body, spirit, mind.
May favor and peace be yours to find.
May rejection and pain
never reach you.
May your spirit grow bold
for what you’re called to.

Chorus:
May you grow up to serve Him
all of your days
May He lead you and guide you
in all of your ways
May His Hand bless your future with
friendships that last.
May you cherish your youth
and not grow up too fast.

Singing:
As you rest in God’s care I will rest, too.
Knowing that Jesus is watching over you.
Amen

Celine Dion – A Mother’s Prayer

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 10:00 am by LynxLee

Celine Dion sang this song with Andrea Bocelli on 1999, then almost 10 years later; another version with Josh Groban was released on 2008. Before that, Celine Dion re-recorded and re-written the lyrics to the form of a Mother’s prayer. For all mothers out there, these lyrics may strike a deep chord in them.

This post is dedicated to all babies; previous, current and future.

A Mother's PrayerI pray You’ll be my eyes
And watch her where she goes
And help her to be wise
Help me to let go

Every mother’s prayer
Every child knows
Lead her to a place
Guide her with Your grace
To a place where she’ll be safe

I pray she finds Your light
And holds it in her heart
As darkness falls each night
Remind her where You are

Every mother’s prayer
Every child knows
Need to find a place
Guide her to a place
Give her faith so she’ll be safe

Lead her to a place
Guide her with Your grace
To a place where she’ll be safe

Sarah McLachlan – Wait

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 9:51 am by LynxLee

When in times of grief, there’s always music we turn to. The sheer voice of emotion. Every love has a leave, yet love is forever. There’s always that bond that will never be felt by any other, only us; inside waiting.. and knowing you felt that way. I love this song to bits. Hope you feel something from this track too. You’ll always be remembered no matter what happens in life. We bid you love, wherever you may go.

Sarah McLachlan - Wait

Wait

Under a blackened sky
far beyond the glaring streetlights
sleeping on empty dreams
the vultures lie in wait
You lay down beside me then
you were with me every waking hour
so close I could feel your breath

When all we wanted was the dream
to have and to hold that precious little thing
like every generation yields
the new born hope unjaded by their years

You know if I leave you now
it doesn’t mean that I love you any less
it’s just the state I’m in
I can’t be good to anyone else like this

Under a blackened sky
far beyond the glaring streetlights
sleeping on empty dreams
the vultures lie in wait
You lay down beside me then
you were with me every waking hour
so close I could feel your breath

When all we wanted was the dream
to have and to hold that precious little thing
like every generation yields
the new born hope unjaded by their years

Pressed up against the glass
I found myself wanting sympathy
but to be consumed again
oh I know would be the death of me
and there is a love that’s inherently given
a kind of blindness offered to appease
and in that light of forbidden joy
oh I know I won’t receive it

When all we wanted was the dream
to have and to hold that precious little thing
like every generation yields
the newborn hope unjaded by their years

You know if I leave you now
it doesn’t mean that I love you any less
it’s just the state I’m in
I can’t be good to anyone else like this

When all we wanted was the dream
to have and to hold that precious little thing
like every generation yields
the new born hope unjaded by their years…

Conor Maynard & Ebony Rhianna Day – Next To You (Cover)

Posted in Dedication, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , , , , at 9:10 am by LynxLee

No disrespect to Chris Brown & Justin Bieber, but these two artists (as per title) DESERVED the recognition and spotlight.

To be rather frank, I love the commercial track Justin Bieber and Chris Brown has released, but I keep thinking of this song in such a soft tone, slow flow-y motion to it. Conor Maynard and Ebony Rhianna Day in YouTube did exactly what I had imagined and that’s why I’m featuring them in this blog.

Absolutely lovely, and indeed a nice fresh feel to it. Cheers for the creation of this awesome song and the incredible cover.

This blog post is dedicated to my baby!

p.s. I personally tailored the lyrics (below) to their YouTube video song/music.

Conor & Ebony - Next To You

And baby, everything that I have is yours,
You will never go cold or hungry.
I’ll be there when you’re insecure,
Let you know that you’re always lovely.
Girl, ’cause you are the only thing that I got right now.

If you had my child,
You would make my life complete.

Just to have your eyes on a little me,
That’d be mine forever.

One day when the sky is falling,
I’ll be standing right next to you,
Right next to you.
Nothing will ever come between us,
I’ll be standing right next to you,
Right next to you.


[Conor]
You’ve got that smile,
That only heaven can make.
I pray to God everyday,
That you keep that smile.

[Ebony]
You are my dream,
There’s not a thing I won’t do.
I’ll give my life up for you,
You are my dream.

[Bridge]
And baby, everything that I have is yours,
You will never go cold or hungry.
I’ll be there when you’re insecure,
Let you know that you’re always lovely.

[Conor]
Girl, ’cause you are the only thing that I got right now.

[Chorus]
[Conor]
One day when the sky is falling,
I’ll be standing right next to you,
Right next to you.
[Ebony]
Nothing will ever come between us,
I’ll be standing right next to you,
Right next to you.

[Conor]
If you had my child,
You would make my life complete.
Just to have your eyes on a little me,
[Ebony]
That’d be mine forever.

[Bridge]
And baby, everything that I have is yours
You will never go cold or hungry
I’ll be there when you’re insecure
Let you know that you’re always lovely

[Ebony]
Boy, ’cause you are the only thing that I got right now

[Chorus]
One day when the sky is falling,
I’ll be standing right next to you,
Right next to you. Ooohooh
Nothing will ever come between us,
I’ll be standing right next to you,
Right next to you.Stand by my side, side, side
Stand by my side
Oohh ooohh oooh ooohh
