Blue October – Light You Up

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 3:44 pm by LynxLee

A quick apology for the profanity in this post first hand, but great music from great artists like this needs to be shared. There are days when we get addicted to something bad, something that makes you want it all the time. When you get over the addiction, you battle your way through it with hate – mainly because you love something else even more than that. This track expresses that emotion very very well, and probably might make you feel good too. As I said, there’s profanity – so if you can’t handle the F word, please navigate away. Yet, there’s a YouTube comment that states – “f**k you has never been used so beautifully”. This is for those I have to HATE to protect those I LOVE.

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up


I’m never gonna give up
Remember what abuse did
It’s time you look at facing
As if you were in anyway understood

It always lowered me to downsize
It always lowered my faith
But it’s in the corner rising next to me
It’s in the corner like it upstage

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up

I said I wouldn’t fail you
It’s something sorry couldn’t sell you
A slow rain, a time bomb
Disconnect it won’t erase what I’d done wrong

In no way is it worth
Losing everything I am including these words
Your heart in my hands
I’m sick as all my secrets that’s why this hurts

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up

‘Cause they’ll put me in the crazy house
And it put me in the crazy farm
And I’m never gonna get back out
I’m never ever gonna treat you wrong
Get down to the earth and the people
Get down to the earth in your bed
That’s where I’m gonna go
And where I’ll never go
When I’m in my motherfucking head.

So tell your mom, tell your dad, tell your family
That I’m beyond the unreasonable sinking ship
You see I never took the time
Never took the time
Never took the time
To learn all about these things you call a relationship

I can’t explain the way I feel inside
Maybe because it’s
Fuck you
Yeah, you heard it
So I light you up
You can’t admit your poison
Go run and hide
I’m through
Yeah, you heard it
I’m gonna light you up

Kari Kimmel – Every Second

Posted in Lyrics, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , , at 11:29 am by LynxLee

If you’ve been following my blog for some time, you’d know I simply love artists that bear their soul. Love songs, family, expression of struggles, hope, strength, faith and a lot more.

I do judge a book by it’s cover; but for what’s it worth – I do dedicate myself to certain people I like/love and change accordingly. I don’t waste time when it comes to feelings, I mean – we’re living every second until the day we die.. shouldn’t we measure it by love?

Kari Kimmel has always been a favourite for me ever since I heard her songs. Bear in mind I’m all the way here in Malaysia listening to artists in United States. I’ve listened to her 11 tracks in her latest album (released two days ago – 15th June 2016) and identified track 1, 8 (this one) and 11 to be the best ones (food for the sentimental soul of mine). Feel free to click on her album below and support her via iTunes. And yes, I did write the lyrics below by hand – obviously copyrighted by Kari Kimmel’s Recording Company.

She posted the below under Facebook:
“Having spent the past year welcoming her baby Poppy into the world, aptly titled “Poppyfields”, this album captures Kari at her most vulnerable, harnessing a collection of songs written for film that capture those familiar moments that make us feel alive.”

Can’t get more “vulnerable” than this track.

Travel over, Hold on, Express yourself – we won’t know what’s coming; but we’d know what we’d lose if we don’t.

Don’t waste “every second”. Go for it.

I feel your fingers when you’re holding tight to me
I can’t believe we’re standing here
I couldn’t write a better story on a crazy dream
We were always meant to be

I can’t believe this is real
And I can’t believe it’s happening
You’re everything to me
There isn’t a doubt in my mind
Nothing could be more perfect or right

I’m falling way too hard
I’m falling way too far
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you
I risked it all
So deep in love
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you

I feel your fingers when you’re holding tight to me
I can’t believe we’re standing here
I couldn’t write a better story on a crazy dream
We were always meant to be

And that’s what keeps me holding on

I’m falling way too hard
I’m falling way too far
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you
I risked it all
So deep in love
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you

I’ve been waiting for this for so long

I can’t explain it
I just know I can’t walk away
I know that I can’t walk away

Sometimes it’s so crazy game I don’t know how to play
But I know that you feel the same

That’s what keeps me holding on

I’m falling way too hard
I’m falling way too far
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you
I risked it all
So deep in love
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you

I can’t believe this is real
And I can’t believe it’s happening
You’re everything to me
There isn’t a doubt in my mind
Nothing could be more perfect or right

I’m falling way too hard
I’m falling way too far
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you
I risked it all
So deep in love
Every second that I’m with you
Every second that I’m with you

I’ve been waiting for this for so long

Lorde – Royals

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 11:30 pm by LynxLee

Had this song in my head; well, specifically – the video playing swaying me around in my mind. When the melody fills me up with so much fun, I sometimes feel like wrapping it up and taking it back home. It’s just those little things that Hinder you that makes you go “Not sure if it’s a good idea, though I really want to”. Oh well, let me live that fantasy.

Lorde-RoyalsAnd we’ll never be royals (royals).
It don’t run in our blood,
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.


[Verse 1]
I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I’m not proud of my address,
In a torn-up town, no postcode envy

But every song’s like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin’ in the bathroom
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room,
We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody’s like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.
We don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your love affair.

And we’ll never be royals (royals).
It don’t run in our blood,
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

[Verse 2]
My friends and I—we’ve cracked the code.
We count our dollars on the train to the party.
And everyone who knows us knows that we’re fine with this,
We didn’t come from money.

But every song’s like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin’ in the bathroom.
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room,
We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody’s like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your love affair

And we’ll never be royals (royals).
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

Ooh ooh oh
We’re bigger than we ever dreamed,
And I’m in love with being queen.
Ooh ooh oh
Life is great without a care
We aren’t caught up in your love affair.

And we’ll never be royals (royals).
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

X Ambassadors – Unsteady

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 3:02 pm by LynxLee

Sometimes the truth will set you free, sometimes it will keep you in a hurt-box. Yet better than to lie, better than to be insincere – if I wanted to hurt you; I would’ve – I only want you to be happy. Hold my hand if you’re unsteady – unless you don’t trust me anymore; just let me go – doesn’t mean I will.

It’s how I feel when I listen to this lyrics, words conjure up in my mind and I comment it the way I know how – imagination. Perhaps an unsteady one.

x-ambassadors-justin-caruso-unsteady-2016-billboard-620
Hold, hold on, hold onto me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold, hold on, hold onto me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady


Hold, hold on, hold onto me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold, hold on, hold onto me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteadyMama, come here
Approach, appear
Daddy, I’m alone
‘Cause this house don’t feel like homeIf you love me, don’t let go
If you love me, don’t let go

Hold, hold on, hold onto me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold, hold on, hold onto me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady

Mother, I know
That you’re tired of being alone
Dad, I know you’re trying
To fight when you feel like flying

But if you love me, don’t let go
If you love me, don’t let go

Hold, hold on, hold onto me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady
Hold, hold on, hold onto me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady

Hold, hold on, hold onto me
‘Cause I’m a little unsteady
A little unsteady

Fire Inc – Tonight Is What It Means To Be Young

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video tagged , at 4:34 pm by LynxLee

1745318

I’ve got a dream when the darkness is over
We’ll be lyin’ in the rays of the sun
But it’s only a dream and tonight is for real
You’ll never know what it means
But you’ll know how it feels
It’s gonna be over (over)
Before you know it’s begun
(Before you know it’s begun)

It’s all we really got tonight
Stop your cryin’ hold on (tonight)
Before you know it it’s gone (tonight)
Tonight is what it means to be young
Tonight is what it means to be young

Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin …(Tonight is what it means to be young…)
Let the fire be started …(Before you know it it’s gone…)
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted

I’ve got a dream ’bout an angel on the beach
And the perfect waves are starting to come
His hair is flying out in ribbons of gold
And his touch has got the power to stunI’ve got a dream ’bout an angel in the forest
Enchanted by the edge of a lake
His body’s flowing in the jewels alive
And the earth below is starting to shakeBut I don’t see any angels in the city
I don’t hear any holy choirs sing
And if I can’t get an angel
I can still get a boy
And a boy’d be the next best thing
The next best thing to an angel
A boy’d be the next best thingI’ve got a dream ’bout a boy in a castle
And he’s dancing like a cat on the stairs
He’s got the fire of a prince in his eyes
And the thunder of a drum in his earsI’ve got a dream ’bout a boy on a star
Lookin’ down upon the rim of the world
He’s there all alone and dreamin’ of someone like me
I’m not an angel but at least I’m a girl

I’ve got a dream when the darkness is over
We’ll be lyin’ in the rays of the sun
But it’s only a dream and tonight is for real
You’ll never know what it means
But you’ll know how it feels
It’s gonna be over (over)
Before you know it’s begun
(Before you know it’s begun)

It’s all we really got tonight
Stop your cryin’ hold on (tonight)
Before you know it it’s gone (tonight)
Tonight is what it means to be young
Tonight is what it means to be young

Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin …(Tonight is what it means to be young…)
Let the fire be started …(Before you know it it’s gone…)
We’re dancing for the restless and the broken-hearted
Let the revels begin
Let the fire be started
We’re dancing for the desperate and the broken-hearted

Say a prayer in the darkness for the magic to come
No matter what it seems
Tonight is what it means to be young
Before you know it it’s gone
Tonight is what it means to be young
Before you know it it’s gone

Ah…

I’ve got a dream when the darkness is over
We’ll be lyin’ in the rays of the sun
But it’s only a dream and tonight is for real
You’ll never know what it means
But you’ll know how it feels
It’s gonna be over (over)
Before you know it’s begun

It’s all we really got tonight
Stop your cryin’ hold on (tonight)
Before you know it it’s gone (tonight)
Tonight is what it means to be young
Tonight is what it means to be young…

The things they say
And then the things they do
Nothin’s gonna stop us if our aim is true…

The things they say
And then the things they do
Nothin’s gonna stop us if our aim is true…

The things they say
And then the things they do
Nothin’s gonna stop us if our aim is true…

(Tonight is what it means to be young…)

Wendell B – Just Don’t Understand You

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 4:37 pm by LynxLee

Sometimes we just don’t understand some people. I mean, it’s almost like when people argue and jumped off a moving car just to avoid an argument; or someone driving the one who always keep coming back – away from him/her.

It’s something we struggle to understand, and I guess the easiest thing to do is to accept it and get on with our lives. Then there’s times we still stick around thinking, “What would happen if things changed, or if things doesn’t?”. It’s hard to understand why we get emotionally attached sometimes, and it’s even harder to understand those who doesn’t.

I guess what I’m trying to say is, it’s all “weird”. I stumbled upon this gem after listening to some Southern Soul R&B – just felt like drinking a “soda” every now and then. I guess every now and then we need that “Sugar Rush” and swim through our heartbeats. Don’t change nothin’ – I just don’t understand you.

good-times

Mama taught me my ABCs, Daddy taught me how to 123
Went to school and got a college degree
But I just don’t understand you
I’ve been around the world, across the seven seas
Swam the deepest ocean, highest tree?
Went back to school and got my bachelor’s degree but I still don’t understand you

 

Girl we’ve been together for quite some time
And I’ve never had the chance to speak my mind
But girl you know I love you
But you keep a lot of hell up in my home
It’s time we get it together baby
Or leave the thing aloneChorus
Mama taught me my ABCs, Daddy taught me how to 123
Went to school and got a college degree
But I just don’t understand you
I’ve been around the world, across the seven seas
Swam the deepest ocean, highest tree?
Went back to school and got my bachelor’s degree but I still don’t understand you

Now here I go again trying to make you understand
All the pain I go through baby trying to be a strong man
See I’ve paid all your bills baby
Keep you in the finest clothes
And still you won’t do right baby
Seems you’re out of control

So tell me what do I do because I’ve gone my last mile
I don’t want to lose the love we’ve had
But it’s time for me to smile awhile
But I’ll keep my door open baby, I just want a happy home
But it’s time we get it together or like ? say, get gone

Chorus

Blue October – Home

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , , , at 10:22 am by LynxLee

Home – “the place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household.”. A place where we go to care, without a care. Somewhere we go to wipe our tears, to seek refuge from the cold world, where we build our hopes, dreams and love.

My wife said that most pessimistic minds seem to think a lot, worry a lot – I know for sure we carry a burden of stress on our shoulders from just caring about things. Emotions and Intelligence – thinking and trying to make sense of things with heart. Knowing what’s important – yet consider other possibilities from others; if it matters to them as well.

I just checked Facebook back when I started working in IT – I had took an application test in Facebook where they check if I’m more logical or emotional. I was very emotional, my wife was logical. It didn’t make sense to me, because I knew I had aced my mathematics and she doesn’t do that well on that. After 5 years of being married, I started to understand – I looked at most possibilities, able to “feel” others by being in their shoes.

Sometimes you need some time to get it all together – sometimes you go through the rough times, delay a day; sometimes it gets heated up and cools back down fast. Ultimately, we try to find that sweet spot – that certain emotion that syncs in between those we care about. From there, I think eventually “the magic” works itself – Home.

Blue_October_home
I’m living for the right now
I had a few friends show me how
I take a deep breath and blow it out
Let it go

But listen I
I can’t wait to see what’s around the corner
I can’t wait to soar
Baby, I lie awake and I watch you sleeping thinking its the little things that make a home

Like dancing in the kitchen in the pale moonlight
Only care in the world is that our kids are all right
Daddy loves momma and momma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again

I feel like I’m gonna win
And I’m as proud as I’ve ever been
Cause I’m surrounded with some good friends
Yeah, good friends, good friends

We found
Our home
Something we can build for years

The young
And old
I’ll be there to wipe your tears


I’ll smile if I want to
I’m not afraid, gonna flaunt it too
What a glow when you’re living true
Yeah

I’m living for the right now
I had a few friends show me how
I take a deep breath and blow it out
Let it go

But listen I
I can’t wait to see what’s around the corner
I can’t wait to soar
Baby, I lie awake and I watch you sleeping thinking its the little things that make a home

Like dancing in the kitchen in the pale moonlight
Only care in the world is that our kids are all right
Daddy loves momma and momma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again

So smile at me baby, take my breath away
With the good Lord willing, I’ll be happy to say
That daddy loves momma and momma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again

I feel like I’m gonna win
And I’m as proud as I’ve ever been
Cause I’m surrounded with some good friends
Yeah, good friends, good friends

I’m forever like a tattoo, yeah
I got to stay sticky cause I gotta be the glue for
My girl, my friends, my home, family, I do it all

Truly I can’t wait to see what’s around the corner
I can’t wait to soar
But baby, I lie awake and I watch you sleeping thinking its the little things that make a home
Yeah

Cause we’ll be dancing in the kitchen in the pale moonlight
Only care in the world is that our kids are all right
Daddy loves momma and momma loves him

That daddy loves momma and momma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again

We found
Our home
Something we can build for years

The young
And old
I’ll be there to wipe your tears

We all get to see
Who we grow up to be
And anchor when in doubt
An ocean when in drought

We aim for it all
We lift of these walls
To make this house our home

Dancing in the kitchen in the pale moonlight
Only care in the world is that our kids are all right
Daddy loves momma and momma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again

So smile at me baby, take my breath away
With the good Lord willing, I’ll be happy to say
That daddy loves momma and momma loves him

So smile at me baby, take my breath away

That daddy loves momma and momma loves him
Tomorrow we get to do it over again

Adam Levine – Lost Stars

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 2:25 pm by LynxLee

I remember posting about this song long long time ago. I guess it must’ve been a bad memory for me to delete it off. I’m posting this again because the truth is I guess it gives that emotion of being happy and sad and mad at the same time. Watch the movie “Begin Again” if you wanna understand that. We’re just trying to live in this world, right? The real basis for us living would probably be love, right? I guess we’re lost and just want to be found. Sometimes we let go to love; sometimes we hold on to love. Regardless, time to thank your stars for everything you’ve gone through – because it’ll guide you to the right path via the stars blinking in the night. Keep singing through life and trust the universe. God loves you.

4f2dd77a293e54dba4c62e2da1498a69Take my hand, let’s see where we wake up tomorrow
Best laid plans sometimes are just a one night stand
I’ll be damned, Cupid’s demanding back his arrow
So let’s get drunk on our tears

And God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

Please don’t see
Just a boy caught up in dreams and fantasies
Please see me
Reaching out for someone I can’t see

Take my hand, let’s see where we wake up tomorrow
Best laid plans sometimes are just a one night stand
I’ll be damned, Cupid’s demanding back his arrow
So let’s get drunk on our tears

And God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

Who are we?
Just a speck of dust within the galaxy?
Woe is me
If we’re not careful turns into reality

But don’t you dare let our best memories bring you sorrow
Yesterday I saw a lion kiss a deer
Turn the page, maybe we’ll find a brand new ending
Where we’re dancing in our tears

And God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and the lambs are on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

And I thought I saw you out there crying
And I thought I heard you call my name
And I thought I heard you out there crying
Just the same

And God, give us the reason youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season and this lamb is on the run
Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars trying to light … light up the dark?

And I thought I saw you out there crying
And I thought I heard you call my name
And I thought I heard you out there crying
But are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?
Are we all lost stars trying to light up the dark?

G-Eazy ft. Kehlani – Everything Will Be OK

Posted in Lyrics, Song Comment tagged , , at 11:42 am by LynxLee

A buddy of mine has got problems – been thinking a lot about wanting the single life. Addicted to the motivational song of Me, Myself and I and really emphasing the fact that it’s better being alone and not attached. Funny thing to me is listening to this track just boils me up. I get angry, but super confident. It’s something I feel back in college when I was cocky and tough. Streaming through Joox, I heard this track next and I felt this is the type of rap that I resonate with, the kind to care; the lyrics to bear – the soul. Maybe it’s about time to close the curtain, but it’s probably the best to be open. Eventually, everything will be ok. I hope.

a307b441592fc5698da1cf118070f85d.1000x1000x1I came around, happiness I see’s what you may have found
And that’s what’s most important
I don’t wanna see you breaking down
I wanna see you smile, I don’t wanna see you make a frown
If she loves you, then that’s all anybody needs maybe now

Even if I don’t stay
Everything will be okay
Everything will be okay
(I promise it’ll be okay)
Everything will be okay
(Okay, okay)

[Produced by: Remo]

[Hook: Kehlani]
Even if I don’t stay
Everything will be okay
Everything will be okay
Everything will be okay
(Okay, okay)

[Verse 1: G-Eazy]
Contemplating just who I could’ve turned out to be
If I’d stayed and weren’t heard, what would amount to me?
If I had looked and ain’t found, would I have founded me?
I mean inside, would they love me?
Never looked down on me?
They say, “You know if you loved her
Well then you would have stayed
You could have made a perfect pair
That people wouldn’t trade”
Trade for nothing, I did though, I had to chase it
Face it, I wasn’t born to live a life basic
They say, “you turned your back on us
Just to go and be an artist
What’s a promise anyway when someone breaks it?
I bet he finally gets a shot and then he wastes it
I bet he don’t come back for us when he makes it
And if he do it be too late, you gotta face it
Cause by then there’s someone new
You’ve been replaced with
Old friends I grew up with, the girl I fell in love with
Love or hate me depending on how you judge it

[Hook: Kehlani]
Even if I don’t stay
Everything will be okay
Everything will be okay
(I promise it’ll be okay)
Everything will be okay
(Okay, okay)

[Verse 2: G-Eazy]
I had to wander, I had to go tread my own path
If you don’t step through no mud well then it won’t last
The years pass it’s crazy how they go fast
Ask myself questions that you have but you won’t ask
Like, “you don’t even come home enough
Where were you when she was in the hospital, huh?
It was only us,” and that’s deep and yeah I know it cuts
But if it gets you, then you’re weak
Because we were here and it ain’t broken us
Still as close and stayed by her side when no one was
Like when she lost her job and everything, how broke we was
When she was sick and she needed some taking care of
A fifteen year old shouldered the weight
And when he was scared of
The worst, I know that you stayed strong
Don’t say this enough
But you made me just as proud as you made Mom
Yeah, you got some anger but I don’t blame you at all
I know I don’t call, but you’re my brother, I love you

[Hook: Kehlani]
Even if I don’t stay
Everything will be okay
Everything will be okay
(I promise it’ll be okay)
Everything will be okay
(Okay, okay)

[Verse 3: G-Eazy]
In that first grade class they came and got me
“Your mom’s outside, say goodbye now to everybody”
U-Haul was waiting with all of her things
At least what she could pack
In the time my dad’s at work and before he came back
Way too young to comprehend what was happening
“Are we going to grandma’s?
When are we coming back again?”
Little did I know that we were leaving him by himself
And ten years would pass before Mom sees anybody else
Just us, in middle school I ain’t understand
Who Melissa was and why she wasn’t another man
Biased and confused they try to explain but nobody can
Wanted what I thought was normal, she had another plan
Such is life, even if it took time for me to accept it
No longer Dad now, but a woman with whom she slept with
Or for the years when a secret was how she kept it
I ain’t get it, admittedly I was skeptic
I came around, happiness I see’s what you may have found
And that’s what’s most important
I don’t wanna see you breaking down
I wanna see you smile, I don’t wanna see you make a frown
If she loves you, then that’s all anybody needs maybe now
By ’05 things had gotten worse
Moved to the basement, deep depressions a rotten curse
Hiding in a dark space, her mind and her body hurts
Becoming more reclusive and the pills should have been alerts
So the worse it got, I became more and more afraid
Until one night, I went into that room, on the floor she laid
I shook her she was blue, her skin was cold
She wasn’t breathing
Screamed, “Melissa wake up”
Couldn’t fathom that she was leaving
Mom and Bro was running down, I screamed “somebody help”
Try pumping her chest, CPR, but it didn’t help
Toughest pill to swallow, but we lost, that’s forced reflection
While in her life you made her happy
Thank you for the blessing

[Hook: Kehlani]
Even if I don’t stay
(Even if I don’t stay)
Everything will be okay
(It’ll be, it’ll be okay)
Everything will be okay
(I promise it’ll be okay)
Everything will be okay
(Okay, okay)

Rudimental ft. Ed Sheeran – Lay It All On Me

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , , , at 5:01 pm by LynxLee

It’s funny, back years ago; when I was a kid – I’ve always wanted to talk to people about my problems. In hopes that someone can change how I see things, or make me feel better. I would try everything and anyone – my family, friends, colleagues, classmates, strangers or even my own self by journal. At least until I’m better, and know that I’m better and until I can influence someone positively back as well. Surely it’s hard – being an arrogant, cocky person. Over time I went soft – having done a lot of mistakes and been through a lot of problems in my life; I changed. I believe I’m better, and I’m no longer arrogant – just a confident pessimist. I’m very good at absorbing how others feel and balancing things out.

One thing that I wanted though is to help people out – listen to others and help them through whatever they go through. Sometimes I don’t follow through and maybe I lost a few friends, but I want them to know that I would do whatever I can to help out – listen, talk, support. Not sure why I don’t exactly get to influence people that way, but I’m certainly open to it. At some point, I want to tell my family & friends; & some people – talk to me. I wanted someone to talk to me about my problems back then, let me repay you by talking about yours. I’m all ears. I’ll try to help you out and maybe you’ll help me the same – somehow. Lay it all on me.

-Dan

Nothing left to see

Cause I will never let you down
And if you can’t escape all your uncertainties
Baby I can show you how

If you’re scared when you’re out on your own
Just remember me
Cause I won’t let you go, let alone
Lay it all on me

No you don’t have to keep it under lock and key
Cause I will never let you down
And if you can’t escape all your uncertainties
Baby I can show you how

If you’re hurting, if you’re hurting
Lay it all on me

So if you’re hurting babe
Just let your heart be free
You got a friend in me
