Guy Sebastian ft. Jordin Sparks – Art of Love

Posted in Dedication, Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 11:32 pm by LynxLee

Happy Birthday, Solitary Rose – Kristine. Her blog is probably the only blog I actually do visit time after time again keeping myself updated since I’ve met her in Facebook, chatting online and go watched movies. If anyone ask me why I check on her; I’ll tell them that I don’t really know at all.

In truth, I check on her because her posts are very packed with sensitivity, optimism, fun, distinct and above all; hilarious (which I love). It really does help if and once you really get to know her. Such an angel.. =)

On 1st January 2010, she had her 21st birthday party. Today is her birthday for real. I just wanted to drop a line on this post to wish her a Happy Birthday and Thanks for that nite. She posted about me last year in her blog – today it’s her day.

Kristine's 21st Birthday

Smilee for the camera..

I heard this on the radio a day before 2010, loved it a lot; I thought I’d share it. Luv ya, gurl. =)

If I forget to get the door

Owl City – Fireflies

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 7:54 pm by LynxLee

I heard this song first from watching David Choi’s cover on it. Then, the radio station played this song. Such an amazing track, I had to include this to my post. Love the whole composition.

You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep

‘Cause they’d fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You’d think me rude
But I would just stand and stare

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems


You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep

‘Cause they’d fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You’d think me rude
But I would just stand and stare

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems

‘Cause I’d get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance

A foxtrot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
A disco ball is just hanging by a thread

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

Leave my door open just a crack
(Please take me away from here)
‘Cause I feel like such an insomniac
(Please take me away from here)
Why do I tire of counting sheep
(Please take me away from here)
When I’m far too tired to fall asleep

To ten million fireflies
I’m weird ’cause I hate goodbyes
I got misty eyes as they said farewell

But I’ll know where several are
If my dreams get real bizarre
‘Cause I saved a few and I keep them in a jar

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems
When I fall asleep

I’d like to make myself believe
That planet earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay
Awake when I’m asleep
Because my dreams are bursting at the seams

Lights – The Listening

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 1:00 am by LynxLee

Lovely. =) That’s as simple as I can describe about this song and the whole video.

I never really ever know what to say
When all of my emotions get in the way
I’m just trying to get us on the same page (Wish I could explain)

I always get it better right afterward
When all the wrong impressions are said and heard
How come I can never get the right words, I need to convey
Wish I could explain The things that I have to work out

Please excuse me, I’m not thinking clear
It must just be stress
But I likely shouldn’t be here, I’m such a mess

I never really ever know what to say
When all of my emotions get in the way
I’m just trying to get us on the same page (Wish I could explain)

I always get it better right afterward
When all the wrong impressions are said and heard
How come I can never get the right words, I need to convey
Wish I could explain The things that I have to work out

I don’t feel right
What has come over me, I’m about
To lose my mind

I never really ever know what to say
When all of my emotions get in the way
I’m just trying to get us on the same page (Wish I could explain)

I always get it better right afterward
When all the wrong impressions are said and heard
How come I can never get the right words, I need to convey
Wish I could explain

Can I let the trees do the talking
Can I let the ground do the walking
Can I let the sky fill what’s missing
Can I let my mouth do the listening, the listening

I never really ever know what to say
When all of my emotions get in the way
http://www.elyricsworld.com/the_listening_lyrics_lights.html
I’m just trying to get us on the same page

I always get it better right afterward
When all the wrong impressions are said and heard
How come I can never get the right words, I need to convey
Wish I could explain
What I mean to say

Jason Derulo – Whatcha Say

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 2:28 am by LynxLee

Do you know how it feels like to feel the STING of a blogger’s post? Particularly the comments.. (??confused??) It could be Karma. Heck, I’m just a little numb now..

btw, a little spoiler.. the chorus? It’s from a song from Imogen Heap – Hide And Seek Track time: 2:54.
(don’t listen to it if you find that you like the track already.. serious spoiler).

Wha- wha- what did she say
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmmm that it’s all for the best?
Of course it is

[Chorus]
Wha- wha- what did she say
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmmm that it’s all for the best?
Of course it is

[Verse 1]
I was so wrong for so long
Only tryin’ to please myself (myself)
Girl, I was caught up in her lust
When I don’t really want no one else
So, no I know I should of treated you better
But me and you were meant to last forever

[Hook]
So let me in (let me in) give me another chance (another chance)
To really be your man
Cause when the roof cave in and the truth came out
I just didn’t know what to do
But when I become a star we’ll be living so large
I’ll do anything for you
So tell me girl

[Chorus]
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say, (whatcha say)
Mmmm that it’s all for the best?
Of course it is
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say, (whatcha say)
Wha- wha- wha- wha- what did she say

[Verse 2]
How, could I live with myself
Knowing that I let our love go (love go)
And ooh, when I do with one chance
I just gotta let you know
I know what I did wasn’t clever
But me and you we’re meant to be together

[Hook]
So let me in (let me in) give me another chance (another chance)
To really be your man
Cause when the roof cave in and the truth came out
I just didn’t know what to do
But when I become a star we’ll be living so large
I’ll do anything for you
So tell me girl

[Chorus]
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say, (whatcha say, whatcha say)
Mmmm that it’s all for the best?
Of course it is
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say, (whatcha say, whatcha say)
Wha- wha- wha- wha- what did she say

[Verse 3]
Girl, tell me whatcha said (said)
I don’t want you to leave me
Though you caught me cheatin’
Tell me, tell me whatcha said (said)
I really need you in my life
Cuz things ain’t right, girl
Tell me, tell me whatcha said (said)
I don’t want you to leave me
Though you caught me cheatin’
Tell me, tell me whatcha said (said)
I really need you in my life
Cuz things ain’t right

[Hook]
Cause when the roof cave in and the truth came out
I just didn’t know what to do
But when I become a star we’ll be living so large
I’ll do anything for you
So baby watcha say!

[Chorus]
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say, (whatcha say, whatcha say)
Mmmm that it’s all for the best?
Of course it is
Mmmm whatcha say,
Mmm that you only meant well?
Well of course you did
Mmmm whatcha say, (whatcha say, whatcha say)
Wha- wha- wha- wha- what did she say

Corrinne May – The Birthday Song

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 1:29 am by LynxLee

Solitary Rose introduced me this song for my birthday two days ago.

I love it and I think everyone should listen to it at least once! =)

Btw, I wrote a post on my Blogger on whatever that transpired between me and her.

Happy birthday my friend
Here’s to all the years we’ve shared together
All the fun we’ve had
You’re such a blessing
Such a joy in my life
May the good Lord bless you
And may all your dreams come true

Don’t worry about that extra line
That’s creeping up upon your face
It’s just a part of nature’s way
To say you’ve grown a little more
Trees have rings and thicker branches
Kids shoes get a little tighter
Every year we’re getting closer to who we’re gonna be
It’s time to celebrate the story of how you’ve come to be

Happy birthday my friend
Here’s to all the years we’ve shared together
All the fun we’ve had
You’re such a blessing
Such a joy in my life
May the good Lord bless you
And may all your dreams come true

So light a candle on your cake
For every smile you’ve helped create
For every heart and every soul
You’ve known to grow a little more
A few more pounds, a little more grey
Don’t count the years just count the way
It takes a little time to go from water into wine
Don’t ever lose the wonder of the child within your eyes

Happy birthday my friend
Here’s to all the years we’ve shared together
All the fun we’ve had
It’s such a blessing
Such a joy in my life
May the good Lord bless you
And may all your dreams come true

Emotional Spunk

Posted in Personal Lyrics, Personal Post tagged at 3:18 am by LynxLee

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Spend all your time waiting for that second chance
For the break that will make it ok
There’s always some reason to feel not good enough
And it’s hard at the end of the day
I need some distraction oh beautiful release
Memories seep from my veins
They may be empty and weightless and maybe
I’ll find some peace tonight
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is what I think about you
Fair skin, short hair, spunky till your feeling’s bare
Companionship’s a price when you’re alone
Friendship’s the strength to cope through the zone

You’re always here and there like I don’t understand
Like you care but you don’t see the signs there
You feel your own heart to the simplest beat
Knowing that there’s always a new dare or feat

You live your life like an adventure
Once, I missed out on most of your venture
One moment we seemed like together
Next few days it feels like I’m just the weather

I can’t understand and I don’t think I want to
In some ways there’s no reason to be angry at you
You’re innocent, lollipop licking, fun girl
I meant you no harm, yes; I had a whirl

I’ve to stop the spin, there’s no time to waste
I can’t take the complicated imagination taste
Sometimes it’s like I’ve been hiding behind a rose bush
Some colleague had given me a little push

Wanted to believe, always skeptical of a lie
Now come to think of it, I’m alone with a sigh
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not hating you or so
I like you a lot, it’s so obvious; I gotta go

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I wish you couldn’t figure me out
But you always wanna know what I was about
I wish you’d hold my hand when I was upset
I wish you’d never forget
the look on my face
when we first met
………….
I wish that you knew when I said two sugars
Actually, I meant three
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Nikki – Bring Me Down

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 5:00 am by LynxLee

I love her vocals! Nikki, a dutch idol winner in 2008. I stumbled into her song while I was searching for a little pep-up. Indeed, this song pepped me up.
Why do I need a pep up? Well, let’s just say I’ve been crushed. Haha.. not in a bad way; just work and all (you can tell I’m lying).
Oh what the heck, just bring me down!

Check her out Nikki’s Official Site. One word, Nikki. Awesome! =D

btw, Kristine; you might like this song here. =P
(update: this link above is blocked in Malaysia 😦 but lucky for Nikki to reupload it again. Thanks! here’s the link – Nikki – How To Break A Heart)

I really need, I really want you to bring me down!!
Yeah, I miss that mess you make
Come around, for all times sake
I need a sweet taste of bitter, bring me down

Bring me down
Yeah, I miss that mess you make
Come around, for all times sake
I need a sweet taste of bitter

I find myself thinking about what you do
Though I know, I’m better off without you
I never break down any longer
I don’t know why I can’t move on

I really need, I really want you to bring me down!!
Yeah, I miss that mess you make
Come around, for all times sake
I need a sweet taste of bitter, bring me down

I’m looking back, I see I was unhappy
To do-do it again, yeah, that would be crazy
It’s so calm and quiet without you
I gotta admit that I long for you

I really need, I really want you to bring me down!!
Yeah, I miss that mess you make
Come around, for all times sake
I need a sweet taste of bitter, yeah

You’re the river I’ll be drowning in some day
I’ll take my chances anyway

Bring me down
Yeah, I miss that mess you make
Come around, for all times sake
I need a sweet taste of bitter

BRING ME DOWN!!
Yeah, I miss that mess you make
Come around, for all times sake
I need a sweet sweet taste of bitter

Bring me down
Yeah, I miss that mess you make
Come around, for all times sake
I need a sweet taste of bitter, bring me down
Bring me down

A Fine Frenzy – Almost Lover

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 2:12 am by LynxLee

I personally never felt like how this song describes it before. I never got to a stage where I’m almost a lover with that person and it didn’t work out. Perhaps it’s the way I think; often times it either works, or it just doesn’t. Hmm, maybe I don’t notice it but I’ve probably been through this.. Just that, I guess I give up fast and move on fast. Before this, I mess it up and stayed in the “suffering zone”. Man, things certainly changed over the years.

When I heard this song; it took me awhile to let it seep into me. Closing my eyes helps. Honestly a very touching song. Having that sadness all around. It just reminds me of James Blunt’s GoodBye My Lover (I could’ve sworn I posted this song.. must’ve removed it when I related it to my previous relationships). Well, except that this song is the pre-relationship part of it.

I simply like these parts below, as it describes how the whole emotion in the painting of words. The whole feel of “almost” just gets me. I don’t really know it, but I have a big feeling that I soon might be experiencing this.

Just feels like what I wrote before.. Time passes by so fast.. If we don’t hold on to something, we might just be swept away. That’s just my fear. Perhaps if I don’t do something now, it might be too late? And there’s never a right time. (don’t you notice this?)

Anyway, I’m kinda distracted (love?) by someone these days. Perhaps it’s just timing too. It’s always best to slow down and enjoy the scenery. Anything’s possible.

Gotta miss the good times.. even if it’s a few days. Missing everything.. even an almost lover like you. Sweet dreams.

Your fingertips across my skin
The palm trees swaying in the wind
Images

We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me
Images

And when you left you kissed my lips
You told me you’d never ever forget these images, no

I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you’d want the same for me

Your fingertips across my skin
The palm trees swaying in the wind
Images

You sang me Spanish lullabies
The sweetest sadness in your eyes
Clever trick

I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you’d want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Can’t you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
I should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

We walked along a crowded street
You took my hand and danced with me
Images

And when you left you kissed my lips
You told me you’d never ever forget these images, no

I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you’d want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Can’t you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
I should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

I cannot go to the ocean
I cannot drive the streets at night
I cannot wake up in the morning
Without you on my mind
So you’re gone and I’m haunted
And I bet you are just fine
Did I make it that easy
To walk right in and out of my life?

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you
Can’t you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
I should’ve known you’d bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do

Colbie Caillat – Fallin’ For You

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged , at 12:25 am by LynxLee

Fallin for you.. Isn’t it funny sometimes how many people we can fall for at one go? I mean, to quote a friend of mine; close your eyes.. imagine 5 different faces that you like.. can you see them? I’m sure you have a couple.. unless you’re attached or married, or having no interest in serious relationships or such; you’ve probably had a couple of people in mind. You see what I mean? We fall for people all the time. Now, how do we know who’s the one? I guess it’s either trial and error.. or if you believe in it; fate. Whichever it is, no one is really ever alone. We’re one in this sphere of blue and green. Enjoy your stay..

p.s. I personally love Out of My Mind more instead.

I’ve been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’ve been waiting all my life
and now I found ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’m fallin’ for you

I don’t know but
I think I maybe
Fallin’ for you
Dropping so quickly
Maybe I should
Keep this to myself
Waiting ’til I
Know you better

I am trying
Not to tell you
But I want to
I’m scared of what you’ll say
So I’m hiding what I’m feeling
But I’m tired of
Holding this inside my head

I’ve been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’ve been waiting all my life
and now I found ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’m fallin’ for you

As I’m standing here
And you hold my hand
Pull me towards you
And we start to dance
All around us
I see nobody
Here in silence
It’s just you and me

I’m trying
Not to tell you
But I want to
I’m scared of what you’ll say
So I’m hiding what I’m feeling
But I’m tired of
Holding this inside my head

I’ve been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’ve been waiting all my life
and now I found ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’m fallin’ for you

Oh I just can’t take it
My heart is racing
The emotions keep spinning out

I’ve been spending all my time
Just thinking about ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’ve been waiting all my life
and now I found ya
I don’t know what to do
I think I’m fallin’ for you
I’m fallin’ for you

I can’t stop thinking about it
I want you all around me
And now I just can’t hide it
I think I’m fallin’ for you (x2)

I’m fallin’ for you

Ooohhh
Oh no no
Oooooohhh
Oh I’m fallin’ for you

Thanks for accompanying me through. I’m feeling much more comfortable as days go by.
