Lost in search

18 Mar

I find this song truly real and its in-depth story about what’s happening in the world told really well lyrically and musically.. British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran does a great job for this debut single.

The A Team- Ed Sheeran

White lips, pale face
Breathing in snowflakes
Burnt lungs, sour taste
Light’s gone, day’s end
Struggling to pay rent
Long nights, strange men

And they say
She’s in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since 18
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries

And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us
Cos we’re just under the upperhand
And go mad for a couple of grams
And she don’t want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
Or sells love to another man
It’s too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly

Ripped gloves, raincoat
Tried to swim and stay afloat
Dry house, wet clothes
Loose change, bank notes
Weary-eyed, dry throat
Call girl, no phone

And they say
She’s in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since 18
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries

And they scream
The worst things in life come free to us
Cos we’re just under the upperhand
And go mad for a couple of grams
But she don’t want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe she flies to the Motherland
Or sells love to another man
It’s too cold outside
For angels to fly
An angel will die
Covered in white
Closed eye
And hoping for a better life
This time, we’ll fade out tonight
Straight down the line

And they say
She’s in the Class A Team
Stuck in her daydream
Been this way since 18
But lately her face seems
Slowly sinking, wasting
Crumbling like pastries
They scream
The worst things in life come free to us
And we’re all under the upperhand
Go mad for a couple of grams
And we don’t want to go outside tonight
And in a pipe we fly to the Motherland
Or sell love to another man
It’s too cold outside
For angels to fly
Angels to fly
To fly, fly
Angels to fly, to fly, to fly
Angels to die

Every man dies. Not every man really lives.William Wallace

Empty

Tried to take a picture
Of love
Didn’t think I’d miss her
That much
I want to fill this new frame
But its emptyTried to write a letter
In ink
Its been getting better
I think
I got a piece of paper
But its empty
Its empty

Maybe we’re trying
Trying too hard
Maybe we’re torn apart
Maybe the timing
Is beating our hearts
We’re empty

And I’ve even wondered
If we
Should be getting under
These sheets
We could lie in this bed
But its empty
Its empty

Maybe we’re trying
Trying too hard
Maybe we’re torn apart
Maybe the timing
Is beating our hearts
We’re empty

Heart Breaking Dawn

21 Nov

With new movie The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn coming up, most of my friends girls especially are really excited about it to a point it scares me that they seem very much into vampires and werewolves. Although I’m not really very into bloodsucking and all but I give huge thumbs up to the author Stephenie Meyer who made her dreams literally come true( yes she dreamt about vampires and really awakened to millions). That’s why sleeping is always a good thing, the first step to dreams.

I guess people really love this ….ghost movie… is out of the adoration of the love between Edward Cullen and Bella Swan being so strong and eternal that both are willing to die and sacrifice for each other, such love that we all do actually want or dream about.

Anyway my main point is the soundtrack itself by Christina Perri, “a thousand years”. She actually got a tattoo “bitten” below her wrist being a die hard fan of Twilight Saga….sheeshh..

I like this song.*)

Heart beats fast

Colors and promises

How to be brave

How can I love when I’m afraid

To fall

But watching you stand alone

All of my doubt

Suddenly goes away somehow

….One step closer

I have died everyday

waiting for you

Darling, don’t be afraid

I have loved you for a Thousand years

I’ll love you for a Thousand more

Time stands still

Beauty in all she is

I will be brave

I will not let anything

Take away

What’s standing in front of me

Every breath, Every hour has come to this


…One step closer


I have died everyday

Waiting for you

Darling, don’t be afraid

I have loved you for a Thousand years

I’ll love you for a Thousand more

And all along I believed

I would find you

Time has brought

Your heart to me

I have loved you for a Thousand years

I’ll love you for a Thousand more

“If you say you have lost the love for someone, it’s the wrong understanding of love. For love in itself is eternal.”

Music in all its poignancy

22 Nov

I love music, very much indeed, I discovered that at a very tender age of 5 I think, maybe even younger. My mom said I could pull a pavarotti with my whistle when I was about 3 or 4 years, definitely I’m making that up but the truth is I could whistle could you believe that! Such disposable talents…

But I brushed it off throughout the years, could be because I was never encouraged to take it seriously in a family that was competing so much academically with other families from mars & now I’m wishing I took music & piano just a bit more seriously…

These are some of the songs with depth & insights I could relate to, it’s nice to know that there are great artists around that produce more then music on sex, lust, fame, money that seems to amalgamate so much of secularism with the meaning of liberalism.

*Sigh*, anyway I’m a huge fan of Sara Bareilles‘ music & lyrics, I like how the music is composed along with her lyrics, though at times it’s hard to make out what she’s trying to say but I like how her thoughts & feelings are poured out into a bona fide song. In a long time I haven’t heard songs that I would enjoy so much or made me cry so much. That’s the poignant music I’m talking about. One of my favourites:

Breathe Again
Car is parked, bags are packed, but what kind of heart doesn’t look back
At the comfortable glow from the porch, the one I would still call yours
All those words came undone and now I’m not the only one
Facing the ghosts that decide if the fire inside still burns
All I have, all I need, he’s the air I would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still I’m searching for something
Out of breath, I am left hoping someday I’ll breathe again
I’ll breathe again

Open up next to you and my secrets become your truth
And the distance between that was sheltering me comes in full view
Hang my head, break my heart built from all I have torn apart
And my burden to bear is a love I can’t carry anymore
All I have, all I need, he’s the air I would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still I’m searching for something
Out of breath, I am left hoping someday I’ll breathe again

It hurts to be here
I only wanted love from you
It hurts to be here
What am I gonna do?

All I have, all I need, he’s the air I would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still I’m searching….

So much pain when you love someone so much yet you know that you can’t be with the person anymore, or that you have to let him go due to reasons or fate.

This part really breaks my heart :’ S

“Open up next to you and my secrets become your truth
And the distance between that was sheltering me comes in full view
Hang my head, break my heart built from all I have torn apart
And my burden to bear is a love I can’t carry anymore”

…..

“It hurts to be here
I only wanted love from you
It hurts to be here
What am I gonna do?”

To love someone really comes with so much pain that sometimes seems unbearable, you struggle to breathe, as each & every single breath taken hurts, & you’re dying to relive that breath of memories with him. But somehow you need to learn to let go, & know that one day you’ll breathe again…

Those who danced were thought to be quite insane by those who could not hear the music.”- Angela Monet
