Sara Bareilles – Bright Lights and Cityscapes

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , at 9:48 am by LynxLee

Sometimes it takes the hard times to really define you – to reveal the inner you. I’ve gone through a post I’ve made back in 2007 and I think to myself, “Wow, what a dumbass”. The thing is, I really felt that way back then and that was my outlet.. THIS was my outlet. I had a girlfriend that was younger, aggressive and well, wild back then – I honestly did not know what to expect, but I knew one thing.. it was an experience I wouldn’t forget. I knew I never wanted to be like that ever again – so I changed. Even more when I became a husband, a father. Sure, I still sway once in a while – but never get out of that awareness into how you are and how you are treating others.

Few days ago I fell sick, today – with a bunch of chemicals (medicine) in my body. This type of music is what I completely need. The healing type, the ones that slow down your mind and help slowly heal yourself. I need this to recover, and I’ll give time. Sure, I feel awesome when I’m fully healthy and fit and all – but when I’m down and sick; that’s the time to calm down and reflect and think – heal.

She is bright lights and cityscapes
And white lies and cavalcades
And she’ll take all you ever have
But I’m gonna love you
You say maybe it’ll last this time
But I’m gonna love you
You never have to ask
I’m gonna love you
‘Til you start looking back
I’m gonna love you
So right
I wouldn’t need a second chance

Hold my breath and I’ll count to ten
I’m the paper and you’re the pen
You fill me in and you are permanent
And you’ll leave me to dry
I’m the writer and she’s the muse
And the one that you always choose
She will falter and gift her blame
And it starts all over again
Again again again

She is bright lights and cityscapes
And white lies and cavalcades
And she’ll take all you ever have
But I’m gonna love you
You say maybe it’ll last this time
But I’m gonna love you
You never have to ask
I’m gonna love you
‘Til you start looking back
I’m gonna love you
So right
I wouldn’t need a second chance

Shield your eyes from the truth at hand
Tell me why it’ll be good again
All those demons are closing in
And I don’t want you to burn
Nevermind what I said before
I don’t want any less anymore
You are carbon and I am flame
I will rise and you will
Remain

For bright lights and cityscapes
And landslides and masquerades
And she’ll take all you ever have
But I’m gonna love you
You say, “Maybe it’ll last this time”
But I’m gonna love you
You never have to ask
I’m gonna love you
‘Til you start looking back
I wouldn’t need a second chance
I wouldn’t need a second chance
I wouldn’t need a second chance
I wouldn’t need a second chance

Sara Bareilles – I Choose You

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 3:33 pm by LynxLee

Here’s a cute song about.. well, Love. =P

I_Choose_You_by_Sara_Bareilles
There was a time when I would have believed them
If they told me you could not come true
Just love’s illusion
But then you found me and everything changed
And I believe in something again

My whole heart
Will be yours forever
This is a beautiful start
To a lifelong love letter

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you

I choose you

Let the bough break, let it come down crashing
Let the sun fade out to a dark sky
I can’t say I’d even notice it was absent
Cause I could live by the light in your eyesI’ll unfold before you
What I’ve strung together
The very first words
Of a lifelong love letter

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you
(Yeah)

There was a time when I would have believed them
If they told me you could not come true
Just love’s illusion
But then you found me and everything changed
And I believe in something again

My whole heart
Will be yours forever
This is a beautiful start
To a lifelong love letter

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you

We are not perfect
We’ll learn from our mistakes
And as long as it takes
I will prove my love to you

I am not scared of the elements
I am under-prepared, but I am willing
And even better
I get to be the other half of you

Tell the world that we finally got it all right
I choose you
Yeah
I will become yours and you will become mine
I choose you
I choose you
I choose you

Sara Bareilles – Morningside

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

Me Likey! Many of you might probably like the Love Song by Sara Bareilles. I heard her album in a whole and I’ve concluded this to be a little funky and fun song. Do give a hear to it. Much worth the 4 minutes.

I just read this on SongMeanings.net :-

this link she gives a little more explanation. so everything she says is basically just saying he makes her feel great and he is able to make her feel good even when she is angry.

Speaking of morning, I woke up at 5am today, went to breakfast, to the gym and then went to work. Not bad.. I’m gonna start doing this more often. Feeling Fresh!

Btw, HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!!! =P

Let me down you say never baby blues don’t you ever
I’m used to being one with the misfortune to find
Afternoons run for cover and full moons just wonder
What it looks like here on my morningside

I could try to forget what you do when i let you get
Through to me but then you do it over again
I could rage like a fire and you’d bring rain i desire
Til you get to me on my morningside

I’m not scared of you now
Or so i say
There’s no reason to run
Although i may
I’m not as sure as i seem
This much i know
What does it mean you leave and i follow

I could try to forget what you do when i let you get
Through to me but then you do it over again
I could rage like a fire and you’d bring rain i desire
Til you get to me on my morningside

Keep my distance i tried
No use
But no matter the miles
I’m back to you

I could try to forget what you do when i let you get
Through to me but then you do it over again
I could rage like a fire and you’d bring rain i desire
Til you get to me on my morningside

Let me down you say never baby blues don’t you ever
I’m used to being one with the misfortune to find
Afternoons run for cover and full moons just wonder
What it looks like here on my morningside

Look back don’t you dare let me start to do that
I don’t care if the things that i have
Only make me afraid to lose i
Need to let go
Need to want to keep letting you know
That we both have a reason to follow
Long as we let this lead i’m barely breathing

I try to forget what you do to me but then you do it over again
I could rage like a fire and you’d bring rain
Til you get to me on my morningside

Let me down you say never baby blues don’t you ever
I’m used to being one with the misfortune to find
Afternoons run for cover and full moons just wonder
What it looks like here on my morningside

Sara Bareilles – Love Song

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 12:42 am by LynxLee

Original video here.
This song is such a melodic, optimistic piano song.
I tried listening to, and singin this song while I’m stuck in a jam.
All of a sudden, the cars are not a problem. Maybe once in a while, my hair could be the problem; but often time, I feel fine.

Well, indeed I need a love song. Thanks! =P

I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you asked for it
’cause you need one, you see
I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you tell me it’s
Make or break in this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leavin’,
Imma need a better reason
To write you a love song today (today)

Head underwater
And they tell me
To breathe easy for a while
Breathing gets harder, even I know that
Made room for me; but it’s too soon to see
If I’m happy in your hands
I’m unusually hard to hold on to

Blank stares at blank pages
No easy way to say this
You mean well, but you make this hard on me

I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you asked for it
’cause you need one, you see
I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you tell me it’s
Make or break in this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leavin’,
Imma need a better reason
To write you a love song today (today)

I learned the hard way
That they all say
Things you want to hear
And my heavy heart sinks deep down under you and
Your twisted words,
Your help just hurts
You are not what I thought you were
Hello to high and dry

Convinced me to please you
Made me think that I need this too
I’m trying to let you hear me as I am

I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you asked for it
’cause you need one, you see
I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you tell me it’s
Make or break in this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leavin’,
Imma need a better reason
To write you a love song today

Promise me that you’ll leave the light on
To help me see with daylight, my guide, gone
’cause I believe there’s a way you can love me
Because I say
I won’t write you a love song
’cause you asked for it
’cause you need one, you see

I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you tell me it’s make or break in this
Is that why you wanted a love song
’cause you asked for it
’cause you need one, you see
I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you tell me it’s make or break in this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If your heart is nowhere in it
I don’t want it for a minute
Babe, I’ll walk the seven seas when I believe that
There’s a reason to
Write you a love song today
