Taylor Swift ft. Gary Lightbody – The Last Time

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , , , , at 2:34 pm by LynxLee

I’ve been through quite a roller coaster. A lot of day and a lot of night. The idea of almost leaving for a trip, but stopped by authorities telling you that you’re not eligible enough and can’t qualify.

What I almost hate the most is how you said one sentence and every word gets twisted and designed to make you (the one answering) to be confused and self doubting. I hate especially when I feel so badly that I’m innocent and that I’m just simply another fellow wanting to follow the rules, law and instructions properly.

I’ve always been the type to just let it go, I’ve always been the type to just let it pass – sometimes we need to sit afar and take the view from a distance to understand the simplest things. That there’s always flaw in most of the changes we choose and that we can do better.

Perhaps it’s the last time, perhaps it’s not – but this will be the last time I’m asking you this.

Taylor-Swift-The-Last-Time-2013EMPHASIS

[Gary Lightbody:]
Found myself at your door,
Just like all those times before,
I’m not sure how I got there,
All roads they lead me here.

I imagine you are home,
In your room, all alone,
And you open your eyes into mine,
And everything feels better,

[Both:]
Right before your eyes,
I’m breaking, no past
No reasons why,
Just you and me.

This is the last time I’m asking you this,
Put my name at the top of your list,
This is the last time I’m asking you why,
You break my heart in the blink of an eye, eye, eye.

[Taylor Swift:]
You find yourself at my door,
Just like all those times before,
You wear your best apology,
But I was there to watch you leave,

And all the times I let you in,
Just for you to go again,
Disappear when you come back,
Everything is better.

[Both:]
Right before your eyes,
I’m aching, no past
Nowhere to hide,
Just you and me…

This is the last time I’m asking you this,
Put my name at the top of your list,
This is the last time I’m asking you why,
You break my heart in the blink of an eye, eye, eye…

[Taylor Swift:] This is the last time you tell me I’ve got it wrong,
[Gary Lightbody:] This is the last time I say it’s been you all along,
[Taylor Swift:] This is the last time I let you in my door,
[Gary Lightbody:] This is the last time, I won’t hurt you anymore.

Oh, oh, oh,

This is the last time I’m asking you this,
Put my name at the top of your list,
This is the last time I’m asking you why,
You break my heart in the blink of an eye.

This is the last time I’m asking you this (this is the last time I’m asking you this)
Put my name at the top of your list (put my name on the top of your list)
This is the last time I’m asking you why (this is the last time I’m asking you why)
You break my heart in the blink of an eye (You break my heart…)

[x4:]
This is the last time I’m asking you,
Last time I’m asking you,
Last time I’m asking you this…

Leona Lewis – Run

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , , , at 9:36 pm by LynxLee

Original video here.
Snow Patrol creates such an amazing, emotional song.. Leona Lewis just makes it more appealing and lovely. Check out the link above for her latest video. The composition in the song is one of my favorites. Of course, her vocals are too. Amazing!


Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

“When we ran as far as we can, and we found that one person we love.. no matter what happens; and it transcends time..”
—> Bryan Adams & Barbra Streisand – I Finally Found Someone

I’ll sing it one last time for you
Then we really have to go
You’ve been the only thing that’s right
In all I’ve done

And I can barely look at you
But every single time I do
I know we’ll make it anywhere
Away from here

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

To think I might not see those eyes
Makes it so hard not to cry
And as we say our long goodbye
I nearly do

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

Light up, light up
As if you have a choice
Even if you cannot hear my voice
I’ll be right beside you dear

Louder louder
And we’ll run for our lives
I can hardly speak I understand
Why you can’t raise your voice to say

Snow Patrol – Signal Fire

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 2:38 am by LynxLee

This song & video is so moving. Ask anyone. The lyrics are so meaningful. I like mainly the title. Signal Fire. The one thing that can get you moving, get you started on whatever, anything. Passion! I’m my own signal fire now. I’m pressing the trigger. What do you want? &, What’s your Signal Fire?


The perfect words never crossed my mind,
’cause there was nothing in there but you,
I felt every ounce of me screaming out,
But the sound was trapped deep in me,
All I wanted just sped right past me,

While I was rooted fast to the earth,
I could be stuck here for a thousand years,
Without your arms to drag me out,

There you are standing right in front of me (x2)
All this fear falls away to leave me naked,
Hold me close cause I need you to guide me to safety

In the confusion and the aftermath,
You are my signal fire,
The only resolution and the only joy,

Is the faint spark of forgiveness in your eyes,

The perfect words never crossed my mind,
’cause there was nothing in there but you,
I felt every ounce of me screaming out,
But the sound was trapped deep in me,

All I wanted just sped right past me,
While I was rooted fast to the earth,
I could be stuck here for a thousand years,
Without your arms to drag me out,

There you are standing right in front of me (x2)
All this fear falls away to leave me naked,
Hold me close cause I need you to guide me to safety

No I won’t wait forever(2x)

In the confusion and the aftermath,
You are my signal fire,
The only resolution and the only joy,
Is the faint spark of forgiveness in your eyes,

There you are standing right in front of me (x2)
All this fear falls away to leave me naked,
Hold me close cause I need you to guide me to safety,

There you are standing right in front of me (x2)
All this fear falls away to leave me naked,
Hold me close cause I need you to guide me to safety,

No I won’t wait forever(x3)

Snow Patrol – Chasing Cars

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged at 1:53 pm by LynxLee

The song, like the title, expresses the feeling of getting away from stress. Having a day off the usual. The simple state of simply lying there & not thinking anything. Not doing anything. Great song for situations in life like Grey’s Anatomy’s show. Sad, sad song.. really..

Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see

I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
