Here's one of those posts that i'm writing in just to keep in touch wit writing on the blog... oh boy! i can never maintain anything... but this time im' trying real hard!!! Yeah, so todays post is about how, unlike getting lost in the music, like most ppl do, i get lost in the lyrics of a song! :( .... yeah the sad smiley was unnecessary! but i really lose the song when i listen to the lyrics! MUMMY! I'm music impaired... actually not... i love music... can't stay in ma room without it!!! it has to keep playing on and on (dad thinks he lost 1/4th of his ability to hear coz of that!)...
Since i have a passion for writing and i concentrate alot on the use of words... i look at each word in a song and i relish the beauty of the words that adds so muchmeaning to the songs. I feel music is made more beautiful when it has beautiful lyrics to compliement it...
For example... I love Nickleback's 'Far away'... to tell you the truth i've been behind that song for two whole years, and im stil hopelessly addicted to it... the lines that really blew me away are:
"...Just one chance, just one breath,
Just in case there's just one left....
....I love you,
I have loved you all along.
I miss you,
Been far away for far too long.
I keep dreaming,
you'll be with me and you'll never go
If i don't see you any more.....
I'll withstand all of hell to hold your hand.
I'd give it all, i'd give for us,
give anything but i won't give up......
I wanted you to stay,
Cause i needed, need to hear you say,
I LOVE YOU....
.... I have loved you all along,
And i forgive you, for being away for far too long.
So keep breathing, cause i'm not leaving you anymore,
Beliving, u'll hold on to me and never let me go....."
Amazing aren't they? They've had me hooked for so long that i'm convinced no song can ever beat this in making me gaga for a lifetime... Also, it somehow became the soundtrack of a movie i've been gaga about for time immemorial (3 yrs! :P )... The Notebook... the combo makes me swirl... ok i'm not making sense... but if only you knew :)
Another song, also related to The Notebook ( You tube version that is)..is Maroon 5's 'She will be loved'.... AMAZING lyrics!
'He was always there to help her, but she always belonged to someone else'
'I don't mind spending everyday,
out on your corner in the pouring rain,
look for the girl with the broken smile,
ask her if she wants to stay a while,
and she will be loved.'
'my heart is cold and my door's always open, you come anytime u want!'
You may think this craziness is only there when it comes to songs... but no, it doesn't limit itself there but goes on to movies also... i'm crazy about certain verses in movies... romantic ones especially (cough!cough!)
Quotes from The Notebook:
Duke (in voice-over narration): "I am no one special, just a common man with common thoughts. I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me, and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect, I've succeeded as gloriously as anyone who ever lived. I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and for me, that has always been enough."
Duke (reading): "It was an improbable romance. He was a country boy. She was from the city. She had the world at her feet, while he didn't have two dimes to rub together."
Duke (reading): They had their fights. Infact they barely agreed on anything. But the important thing is, they were crazy about each other!
Excerpt from a letter from Noah to Allie: "The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds. And that's what you've given me. That's what I'd hoped to give you forever."
Duke (to older Allie): "I think our love can do anything we want it to."
I told you..... thats how word crazy i am... thoughts penned down and now its times for me to sign off....hehehe... i know i made no sense... but atleast you'll know what a crazy person i am :)
