Katharine McPhee – Terrified

Posted in Images, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 12:37 am by LynxLee

Katherine McPhee delivers Kara DioGuardi‘s love track in such a very beautiful way.

How could I have missed this? I was checking out my old post on “Tomato” (yes, it’s a code) as I had been speaking to her on MSN just a while ago. I haven’t heard from her for quite some time now. It’s the little things that tingles your heart..

After listening to Kara DioGuardi and Jason Reeves, I read in the comments below the video about Katherine McPhee. I had to check it out for myself. Indeed, incredible vocals.

Beautiful Pier on PutraJaya Lake

My Heart's In Motion

This could be good
It’s already better than that
And nothing’s worse than knowing you’re holding back

‘Cause it keeps me up
It holds me close
Whenever I’m without you

I’m in love (I’m in love)
And I’m terrified
For the first time
And the last time

Every word feels like a shooting star
I’m at the edge of my emotions


You by the light
Is the greatest find
In a world full of wrong
You’re the thing that’s right
Finally made it through the lonely
To the other side

Chorus:
You said it again
My heart’s in motion
Every word feels like a shooting star
I’m at the edge of my emotions
Watchin’ the shadows burnin’ in the dark

And I-I-I’m in love (I’m in love)
And I-I-I’m terrified
For the first time
And the last time
In my only life, life

This could be good
It’s already better than that
And nothing’s worse than knowing you’re holding back

I could be all that you needed
If you let me try

Chorus:
You said it again
My heart’s in motion
Every word feels like a shooting star
I’m at the edge of my emotions
Watchin’ the shadows burnin’ in the dark

And I-I-I’m in love (I’m in love)
And I-I-I’m terrified
For the first time
And the last time
In my only life, life

I only said it
‘Cause I mean it
I only mean it
‘Cause it’s true

So don’t you dare
What i’ve been dreaming
‘Cause it keeps me up
It holds me close
Whenever I’m without you

Chorus:
You said it again
My heart’s in motion
Every word feels like a shooting star
I’m at the edge of my emotions
Watchin’ the shadows burnin’ in the dark

And I-I-I’m in love (I’m in love)
And I-I-I’m terrified
For the first time
And the last time
In my only life, life

Ben Jelen – Come On

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , at 1:00 am by LynxLee

Great video by callback1800. Great song by Ben Jelen. Indeed I’m here. Come on..

Cause each of her kisses
How my heart misses
She’s coming
She’s coming here to me
I’m needing
Desiring to kiss her now
I’m living for her
Breathing for her
Singing for her fairytale

Come on
Without you I’ll never feel the love inside of me
Come on, you know that we belong
Come on, come on, come on, come on

And finally the silence
Looking out, looking back across the sky
Trying to find a meaning
Knowing that I just left it all behind
Still I smell a lingering softness
Where did she go
How did she go
I wanna wanna know
I wanna know that she’ll be coming here to me

[Chorus:]
Come on
Without you I’ll never feel the love inside of me
Come on, you know that we belong
Come on, come on, come on, come on

Thinking back before her
I never knew the meaning of alone
Still the flag is feeling foreign
I live the day to escape into a phone
Speaking of a world not real then
Where did she go
How did she go
I wanna wanna know
I wanna know that she’ll be coming here to me

[Chorus]

Cause each of her kisses
How my heart misses
She’s coming
She’s coming here to me
I’m needing
Desiring to kiss her now
I’m living for her
Breathing for her
Singing for her fairytale

[Chorus]

Come on
Without you I’ll never feel the love inside of me
Come on, come on, come on, come on

Come on…

Jesse McCartney – Just So You Know

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , at 1:00 am by LynxLee

Couldn’t believe I never spoken back then. Now that there’s no secrets between us, I kinda wish you feel the same way I do.. because I don’t want to be just your “friend”. Just so you know.

This emptiness is killin’ me
Im wondering why I’ve waited so long
Lookin’ back I realize it was always there, just never spoken
I’m waitin’ here
Been waitin’ here

Just so you know
This feeling’s takin’ control
Of me and I can’t help it
I won’t sit around
I can’t let him win now
Thought you should know
I’ve tried my best to let go
Of you but I don’t want to
I just gotta say it all before I go
Just so you know


I shouldn’t love you, but I want to
I just can’t turn away
I shouldn’t see you, but I can’t move
I can’t look away x2

And I don’t know how to be fine when I’m not
‘Cause I don’t know how to make the feelings stop

Just so you know
This feeling’s takin’ control
Of me and I can’t help it
I won’t sit around
I can’t let him win now
Thought you should know
I’ve tried my best to let go
Of you but I don’t want to
I just gotta say it all before I go
Just so you know

It’s gettin’ hard to
Be around you
Theres so much I can’t say
Do you want me to hide the feelings
And look the other way

And I don’t know how to be fine when I’m not
‘Cause I don’t know how to make the feelings stop

Just so you know
This feeling’s takin’ control
Of me and I can’t help it
I wont sit around
I can’t let ‘him win now
Thought you should know
I’ve tried my best to let go
Of you but I don’t want to
I just gotta say it all before I go
Just so you know

This emptiness is killin’ me
Im wondering why I’ve waited so long
Lookin’ back I realize it was always there, just never spoken
I’m waitin’ here
Been waitin’ here

mmm oooh

Just so you know
This feeling’s takin’ control
Of me and I can’t help it
I wont sit around
I can’t let him win now
Thought you should know
I’ve tried my best to let go
Of you but I don’t want to
I just gotta say it all before I go
Just so you know
Whoa
Just so you know
Whoa
Thought you should know
I’ve tried my best to let go
Of you but I don’t want to
I just gotta say it all before I go
Just so you know
Just so you know

Ben Jelen – Stay

Posted in Dedication, Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post tagged , at 6:00 am by LynxLee

A quick SHOUTOUT to a friend of mine all the way in China. Her birthday’s today. Just wanted to dedicate one of her favorite artists’ song to her.

Happy Birthday!!

Info on this artist:
Ben Jelen (born 8 July 1979), born Benjamin Ivan Jelen in Edinburgh, Scotland, is a singer-songwriter who plays the piano, violin, and guitar. He has lived in Scotland, England, Texas, New Jersey, and New York.

She’s amazing, ever changing
Oh, you’ll feel like your sailing
Oh, you’ll feel your life changing
Oh, she’ll bring back that feeling
Oh, she’ll have you beggin
Please, please, please stay
Just stay

She wakes up and rolls into the kitchen
She turns on her favorite radio
She jumps on the bed kisses me as I’m sleeping
And her smile starts

She’s amazing, ever changing
Oh, you’ll feel like your sailing
Oh, you’ll feel your life changing
Oh, she’ll bring back that feeling
Oh, she’ll have you beggin
Please, please, please stay
Just stay

She’s off to yoga just to clear her head out
Sometimes sees the world from upside down
She forgets about the song she’s singing
As my smile starts

She’s amazing, ever changing
Oh, you’ll feel like your sailing
Oh, you’ll feel your life changing
Oh, she’ll bring back that feeling
Oh, she’ll have you beggin’
Please, please, please stay
Just stay

I’ll brush your hair
Tell you you’re beautiful
When you wake up, stay awake at night
To watch you while you sleep
Be a confidant for secrets that you’re keeping
I’ll pick you up girl; I’ll pick you up girl

Oh, you’ll feel like your sailing
Oh, you’ll feel your life changing
Oh, she’ll bring back that feeling
Oh, she’ll have you beggin’
Please, please, please stay
Just stay

Iron & Wine – Flightless Bird, American Mouth

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 10:17 pm by LynxLee

Beautiful.. so is the girl who introduced me this song. Everything relates, doesn’t it? Speaking of relation..
This song’s from Twilight’s soundtrack.. just in case you wanna know..
Lovely.

I was a quick wet boy
Diving too deep for coins
All of your straight blind eyes
Wide on my plastic toys
And when the cops closed the fair
I cut my long baby hair
Stole me a dog-eared map
And called for you everywhere

Have I found you?
Flightless bird, jealous, weeping
Or lost you?
American mouth
Big bill looming

I was a quick wet boy
Diving too deep for coins
All of your straight blind eyes
Wide on my plastic toys
And when the cops closed the fair
I cut my long baby hair
Stole me a dog-eared map
And called for you everywhere

Have I found you?
Flightless bird, jealous, weeping
Or lost you?
American mouth
Big bill looming

Now I’m a fat house cat
Cursing my sore blunt tongue
Watching the warm poison rats
Curl through the wide/white fence cracks
Kissing on magazine photos
Those fishing lures thrown in the cold and clean
Blood of Christ mountain stream

Have I found you?
Flightless bird, brown hair bleeding
Or lost you?
American mouth
Big bill, stuck going down

Lenka – Knock Knock

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Song Comment tagged , at 1:09 am by LynxLee

Despite “The Show” having that weird feel to it, I thought to myself “Oh great! Another Lily Allen!”. After listening to Lenka’s album, I have to say, I’m impressed. It feels like how it was when Mika dropped the album. Not everyone likes it, but it’s breathe of fresh air. The lyrics are pretty “directly riddly”. You gotta love the vocals too. I found out about Lenka from a friend, and I’m glad I noticed. This song, to me, relates a lot; to most of how I feel.. occasionally.. ..keep “knocking”..

btw, watch this performance too.

A warm bath, a good laugh, an old song that you know by heart.
I’ve tried it but they all leave me cold.
So now I’m here waiting to see you,
my remedy for all that’s been hurting me.

“You’re all I need right now its true.
Nothin’ works like you.

A second, a minute, and hour, a day goes by.
Im hopin’ just to be by your side.
Im turnin’ the handle
it won’t open.
Don’t make me wait, cause right now I need your smile.

Chorus:
Knock Knock
When life had locked me out, I turned to you
so open the door.
You’re all I need right now its true.
Nothin’ works like you.

Little louder x3 knockin’
Little louder x2

A warm bath, a good laugh, an old song that you know by heart.
I’ve tried it but they all leave me cold.
So now im here waiting to see you,
my remedy for all that’s been hurting me.

Chorus

You seem to know the way
to turn my frown upside down
you always know what to say
to make me feel like everything’s ok.

Little louder x3 knockin’ (x3)
Little louder x2

Chorus x2

Little louder x3 knockin’
Nothin’ works like you, oh oh
Little louder x3 knockin’

Chorus

Kara DioGuardi ft. Jason Reeves – Terrified

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

Kara Digourdi; Jason Reeves. I found Jason Reeves through some of Colbie Caillat’s collaboration, and Kara; obviously from American Idol.

This song keeps looping in my head since the day I saw the video. I mean, I’m feeling good.. I’m feeling in love.. and the moment it happens, I feel it’s time to find love.

I’ve attended three weddings since the start of the year. In fact, I just came back from a wedding. You know how love songs keeps looping again and again throughout the wedding dinner? Well, usually it’ll annoy the heck out of me.. especially when I’m single and broken up.

This time, it’s different. I somehow feel.. happy.. maybe because I’m thinking of one person.. this girl that made me happy a lot of times.. she just kept saying she’s not ready..

Then again, maybe I’m just happy everything’s going well for me. Despite two friends of mine having relationship issues, I know time will pass fast if we don’t do what we feel.. and I’m just ever so in love.. just a feeling.. just THE feeling.. ^^

“Say it again, my heart’s in motion; every word feels like a shooting star
I’m at the edge of my emotions, watchin’ the shadows burnin’ in the dark”

And I-I-I’m in love (I’m in love)
And I-I-I’m terrified…

You by the light
Is the greatest find
In a world full of wrong
You’re the thing that’s right

Finally made it through the lonely
To the other side

Chorus:
You said it again
My heart’s in motion
Every word feels like a shooting star
I’m at the edge of my emotions
Watchin’ the shadows burnin’ in the dark

And I-I-I’m in love (I’m in love)
And I-I-I’m terrified
For the first time
And the last time
In my only life, life

This could be good
It’s already better than that
And nothing’s worse than knowing you’re holding back

I could be all that you needed
If you let me try

Chorus:
You said it again
My heart’s in motion
Every word feels like a shooting star
I’m at the edge of my emotions
Watchin’ the shadows burnin’ in the dark

And I-I-I’m in love (I’m in love)
And I-I-I’m terrified
For the first time
And the last time
In my only life, life

I only said it
‘Cause I mean it
I only mean it
‘Cause it’s true

So don’t you dare
What i’ve been dreaming
‘Cause it keeps me up
It holds me close
Whenever I’m without you

Chorus:
You said it again
My heart’s in motion
Every word feels like a shooting star
I’m at the edge of my emotions
Watchin’ the shadows burnin’ in the dark

And I-I-I’m in love (I’m in love)
And I-I-I’m terrified
For the first time
And the last time
In my only life, life

Crushed

Posted in Personal Post tagged , , at 7:34 pm by LynxLee

It’s funny how we as people just falls in love with someone we barely know
to find that when we get to know that person, we’d be heart broken.
The feeling of forsaken fills the void of curiosity and interest.

A sign of fresh air is suddenly filled with cloud of dust, leaving us confused.
Seemingly the blow of knowing more, hurting the heart of the despair.
Sharing our stories to others and having that virus be contracted to another.

That’s how songs are formed with the little intention to make others sad,
but really is to express the feeling we feel deep inside us. Knowing,
that there certainly are others who feel the same way in the exact same time.

Instantly we know that there are always hope in our hearts for a better love.
A better future from knowing just the simple idea, that we are free..
Free to choose and free to move.. away from anyone who cause us harm.

Be liberated from the differences of obsession, anger, sadness and hurt.
To find that we really weren’t in love with that previous person we didn’t know.
But all it was is just a short connection of interest between our fantasy and reality.
