Richard Marx – Should’ve Known Better

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged , at 4:47 pm by LynxLee


Another sleepless night I can’t explain
Somebody said they heard me call your name.
The radio won’t let you leave my mind
I know it’s over but I don’t know why.
Should’ve known better than to fall in love with you
Now love is just a faded memory.
Should’ve known better
now I’m a prisoner to this pain
And my heart still aches for you.
There was no risk that I wouldn’t take
Not a promise that I didn’t make.
All I asked was that you just hold on
And now I’m wondering what I did wrong.
Should’ve known better than to fall in love with you
I gave you all of my body and soul
Never believing we might lose control
I took my hands off the wheel.
I can’t remember if the lies were true
It’s been a million years since I touched you.
I thought time might help me win this game
But being away from you is slowly driving me insane.
Should’ve known better than to fall in love with you
Should’ve known better than to fall in love with you

Another sleeplees night I can’t explain

Somebody said they heard me call your name.
The radio won’t let you leave my mind

I know it’s over
but I don’t know why.

Should’ve known better than to fall in love with you

Now love is just a faded memory.
Should’ve known better
now I’m a prisoner to this pain

And my heart still aches for you.

There was no risk that I wouldn’t take

Not a promise that I didn’t make.
All I asked was that you just hold on

And now I’m wondering what I did wrong.
Should’ve known better than to fall in love with you
. . .

I gave you all of my body and soul

Never believing we might lose control

I took my hands off the wheel.

I can’t remember if the lies were true

It’s been a million years since I touched you.
I thought time might help me win this game

But being away from you is slowly driving me insane.

Should’ve known better than to fall in love with you

Should’ve known better than to fall in love with you

Fort Minor – Believe Me

Posted in Dedication, Lyrics, Music Video tagged , at 12:38 pm by LynxLee

This whole song is dedicated to my recent ex-girlfriend. Every part of the lyrics expresses what I want to say to her. I wish you best of luck.
Peace,
Dan

Back then, I thought you were just like me
Somebody who could see all the pain I see
But you proved to me unintentionally

That you would self-destruct eventually
Now I’m thinking like the mistake I made doesn’t hurt
But it’s not gonna work
Cause it’s really much worse than I thought
I wished you were something that you were not
And now this guilt is really all that I got

Yeah!

[chorus]
I guess
That this is where we’ve come to
If you don’t want to
Then you don’t have to believe me
But I won’t be there when you go down
Just so you know now
You’re on your own now believe me

I don’t want to be the one to blame
You like fun and games
Keep playing em
I’m just sayin
Think back then
We was like one and the same
On the right track
But I was on the wrong train
Just like that
Now you’ve got a face to pain
And the devil’s got a fresh new place to play
In your brain like a maze you can never escape the rain
Every damn day is the same shade of grey

Hey
I used have a little bit of a plan
Used to
Have a concept of where I stand
But that concept slipped right out of my hands
Now I don’t really even know who I am
Yo, what do I have to say
Maybe I should do what I have to do to break free
What ever happens to you, we’ll see
But it’s not gonna happen with me

[chorus]
I guess
That this is where we’ve come to
If you don’t want to
Then you don’t have to believe me
But I won’t be there when you go down
Just so you know now
You’re on your own now believe me

Back then, I thought you were just like me
Somebody who could see all the pain I see
But you proved to me unintentionally

That you would self-destruct eventually
Now I’m thinking like the mistake I made doesn’t hurt
But it’s not gonna work
Cause it’s really much worse than I thought
I wished you were something that you were not
And now this guilt is really all that I got

You turned your back
And walked away in shame
All you got is a memory of pain
Nothing makes sense so you stare at the ground
And hear my voice in ya head when no one else’s around
What do I have to say
Maybe I should do what I have to do to break free
What ever happens to you, we’ll see
But it’s not gonna happen with me

[chorus]
I guess
That this is where we’ve come to
If you don’t want to
Then you don’t have to believe me
But I won’t be there when you go down
Just so you know now
You’re on your own now believe me

[bridge]

[chorus]
I guess
That this is where we’ve come to
If you don’t want to
Then you don’t have to believe me
But I won’t be there when you go down
Just so you know now
You’re on your own now believe me

Do what i have to do
You’re on your own now believe me

What ever happens to you
You’re on your own now believe me

What do I have to say
You’re on your own now believe me

It’s not gonna happen to me
You’re on your own now believe me

Jon Secada – Angel

Posted in Dedication, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 10:50 pm by LynxLee

Jon Secada always expresses my feeling so very well. I was just checking out a friend’s profile a few seconds ago. I have to admit, finally getting to access her profile really did made me happy. =) At the same time, I practically cried… It’s been so long.. I read her blog.. & see her pictures.. rather touching.. Happy to see her happy this way..

This song.. it’s close to my heart. An angel.. I mean.. it’s love.. it’s Love. Simple lyrics.. in fact, short.. but good stuff.. Does it makes sense to you? It grew on to me, actually..

I could only wonder… what’s the connection between Christianity, Bible & Angels? How does angel appear to be? Is angel a symbol of love?

For some reason, I still can’t let go.. can’t feel as free as I want to be. Perhaps once I start working? (People tell me otherwise) Working has less freedom. Let’s see what life has in store for me.

This post is dedicated to all the Angels!

Expression of the day :
And baby I, I’ve tried to forget you
But the light of your eyes still shines
You shine like an angel
A spirit that won’t let me go

I, I can’t read the future
But I still want to hold you close
Right now, is all I want from you
So give me the morning
Sharing another day
With you, is all I want to know

And baby I, I’ve tried to forget you
But the light of your eyes still shines
You shine like an angel
A spirit that won’t let me go

I, I didn’t want to tell you
Things I didn’t want to know myself
I was afraid to show
But you gave me a reason
A reason to face the truth
To face the truth, face the truth, face the truth

And baby I, I’ve tried to forget you
But the light of your eyes still shine
You shine like an angel
A spirit that won’t let me go
Won’t let me go
Let go of my heart

Ben Adams – I Don’t Wanna Stay

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 4:56 pm by LynxLee

When I heard “Sorry” from Ben Adams (formerly from A1 boyband), I didn’t really think that it’s worth adding in this blog… but this song.. now, I’d feature this song. Where emotions are tangled. I’m not a sad guy.. but heck, isn’t this how it feels like? The lyrics meant more than the “Sorry” song.. plus.. better video too. The video is a bit too high towards the end.. but everything else is ok to me.. Doing the best of what he’s good at. Emotional songs.. Hehe.. =)

I particularly like the Chorus.. well written.

–==Mid of Chorus==–
I’m not gonna die
If you don’t love me
Its just I wouldn’t
Call it living

–==End of Verse 2==–
Wont be easy
To say goodnight
To what I had thought would be
The love of my life (for ever)

–==End of Middle 8==–
And if I’m no longer welcome
Then I’ve been here too long

We fell into love
Just like dreaming
But dreaming with our eyes open wide

And it was enough
Your heart beating
like it was connected to mine

Now its changing
And I don’t know why
But I feel like I’m losing everything
I thought I had

And if I didn’t love you
It wouldn’t hurt so bad

Chorus

I don’t wanna stay
Where I’m not wanted
Don’t want be
Where I don’t fit in

I’m not gonna die
If you don’t love me
Its just I wouldn’t
Call it living

Don’t want you to cry
If your not sorry
If you’ve already
closed the door

I don’t wanna stay
Where I’m not wanted
What would I be staying for?

Verse 2

I don’t wanna be
Stuck here feeling
That maybe your not so into me

For my self esteem
Cant help thinking
That maybe I should get up and leave

Wont be easy
To say goodnight
To what I had thought would be
The love of my life (for ever)

Chorus

Middle 8

I wish I could reach out and touch you
But I know it would be wrong
I’d only feel an empty space
Like you’ve already gone
And if I’m no longer welcome
Then I’ve been here too long

Chorus

I don’t wanna stay where I’m not wanted
What would I be staying for?

Faith Hill & Tim McGraw – Like We Never Loved At All

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , , at 1:03 am by LynxLee

It’s like we never loved at all. Were we even in love? I guess I never knew love before. Yet, it’s funny how you say you are so scared of me leaving you and such; where everything you expect of me is violated by YOU. Do you know how it hurts? I think you should know, especially since you’ve been through all the PAIN before. I guess it’s the perfect time when you left. That’s the time I’m confused, sad & mad. The perfect time when I needed you & you needed me. The perfect time for you to step on me & move over to a better guy! Since it’s mostly my fault, I guess I deserved this. I guess it’s my turn to feel this pain called HEARTBREAK.

Convincing, huh? Yeah, well.. that’s how it is when you’ve been through it. You’ll know just what you’re saying or writing. I guess it shows.. On another note, usually when a person gets angry or cry, that’s the time they need that special someone the most. I guess that’s why negative & negative shouldn’t be together. I even had a chat with a friend of mine; she explains how there are some people who are so depressed that they actually have no feeling at all. Pretty bad.. I’m only glad I’m still sane. =P

It’s funny, how it used to be guys who are wrong and they moved on to a new girl & such. These days; to be honest… in Malaysia anyway, it’s REALLY harder to find a good girl than it is to find a good guy. Good Guys are all around. It’s just harder to find the perfect girl.. & to make things worse in my life, I’ve let two “Good Girls” who was in my life before; just leave me behind.

On the positive side, I can manage my time, money & life more efficiently towards my goals. I’ve also needed to be more independant anyway.. & the best of all; they are HAPPIER now than ever. =)

Now, to focus on REFINING & DEFINING myself. =P There’s still time… I just want to fast-forward sometimes. 😛

There walking with your friend
Laughing at the moon
I swear you looked right through me

You never looked so good
As you did last night
Underneath those city lights
There walking with your friend
Laughing at the moon
I swear you looked right through me
But I’m still livin’ with your goodbye
And you’re just goin’ on with your life

Chorus:
How can you just walk on by
Without one tear in your eye
Don’t you have the slightest feelings left for me
Maybe that’s just your way
Of dealing with the pain
Forgetting everything between our rise and fall
Like we never loved at all

You, I hear you’re doin’ fine
Seems like you’re doin’ well
As far as I can tell
Time is leaving us behind
(Leavin’ us behind)
Another week has passed
And still I haven’t laughed yet
So tell me what your secret is
To letting go like you did, like you did

Did you forget the magic
Did you forget the passion
Did you ever miss me
Ever long to kiss meeeee….

Maybe that’s just your way
Of dealing with the pain
Forgetting everything between our rise and fall
Like we never loved…at alllllll….

Paths to Serenity

Posted in Personal Lyrics tagged at 4:56 am by LynxLee

I woke up to your voice
Where are you now?
I hear you cry inside
So loud yet so silent

You cry alone, don’t you?
The laughter is fake
I’m so worried about you
So restless, always awake

Take care of you to take care of me
You were the one who left to be free
Why can’t we make peace? Stop haunting me, inside..
I’m tired of these.. I want to release.. subside..

I remember all we’ve been through
All the happiness I felt was overdue
I remember how we used to fight
Mind to mind, filled with contrite

I need to relax, reflect those attacks, get off that impacts

It’s only you..
You’re not the one who grew..
I’m too strong..
This is so wrong..
It’s all embedded..
Feels lightheaded..
Probably hardheaded

Take care of you to take care of me
You were the one who left to be free
Why can’t we make peace? Stop haunting me, inside..
I’m tired of these.. I want to release.. subside..

And breathe again..
Just wake up from these haunting..
Make up for all of these daunting..

I’m closing the doors in my mind..
Knowing that once my mind opens,
That’s when all is clear
Away with the fear

Breaking away..
Falling freely..
in my mind,
to the paths of Serenity
