I’ve these dreams I’m
Walking home
Home when it used to be
And everything is
As it was
Frozen in front of me

Here I stand
6 feet small
romanticizing years ago
it’s a bitter sweet feeling hearing “Wrapped Around Your Finger” on the
radio

and these days
I wish I was 6 again
Oh make me a red cape
I wanna be Superman Read the rest of this entry »

I’ll Face It

Mukae ni Iku yo by Arashi
The Scenery I’m Looking At [Boku no Miteiru Fuukei] ~2010

This song encourage me a lot during these long hard times. I definitely want to tell the yesterday me something I do today with proud. And I want to tell the tomorrow me to hang on, to always remember how everything started and done.

When sad things happen
I lie down and gaze at the blue sky that birds are flying through
Like they are pressed for time
After that, the flow of the seasons, and today too, melt into time

Even though these were the days I’d chosen
I lost my way and looked like I’d given up
Just what would the innocent me from photos say?

I’m going to meet the “me” of tomorrow
So that I won’t lose the past
Holding the precious things I’d started to forget
Even if we don’t know any answers, as long as there is still a road to continue on
Let’s believe it as it is and go

Walking in the crowds of people
The noise of a tired city
Why is it that tears fell?
Many of the things I didn’t want to lose escaped
And melted into the city again today

If I became completely accustomed to losing things, then I’d forget everything I wanted to pursue
But the fact is that I know
Everybody has a future

I’m going to meet the “me” of tomorrow
So that I won’t lose to the past
I’ll talk about the dreams that I’d longed for
Since I don’t understand logic, as long as there is still a road to continue on
Let’s experience it as it is and go

Someday, somewhere, I should remember the significance of everything here
Even if I try to look good or if I show my tears
That is my real self

I’m going to meet the “me” of tomorrow
So that I won’t lose to the past
Holding the precious things I’d started to forget
Even if we don’t know any answers, as long as there is still a road to continue on
Let’s believe it as it is and go

I’m going to meet the “me” of tomorrow
So that I won’t lose to the past
I’ll talk about the dreams that I’d longed for
Since I don’t understand logic, as long as there is still a road to continue on
Let’s experience it as it is and go

The Road I’m On

20 01 2011

by 3 Doors Down
(Away from the Sun)

She said life’s a lot to think about sometimes
When you’re living in between the lines
And all the stars they sparkle and shine everyday

He said life’s so hard to move in sometimes
When it feels like I’m towin’ the line
And no one even cares to ask me why I feel this way

I know you feel helpless now and I know you feel alone
That’s the same road, the same road that I am on

He said life’s a lot to think about sometimes
When you keep it all between the lines
Of everything I want and I want to find, one of these days

What you thought was real in life somehow steered you wrong
Now you just keep drivin’ tryin’ to find out where you belong

I know you feel helpless now and I know you feel alone
That’s the same road, that same road that I am on

What you thought was real in life somehow steered you wrong
Now you just keep drivin’ tryin’ to find out where you belong

I know you feel helpless now and I know you feel alone
That’s the same road, that same road that I am on

(Really not sure if I’m already posted this lyrics before somewhere, but since it’s still ringing on me ’till now I decide to post this. One of my fave from 3 Doors Down :).
Well, Life sure is Hard, but that’s why it’s Happy 😀 and oh yeah, you’re not alone:) )





Storm

30 09 2010

How long have I been in this storm?
So overwhelmed by the ocean’s shapeless form
Water’s getting harder to tread
With these waves crashing over my head

If I could just see U
Everything would be all right
If I’d see U
This darkness would turn to light

And I will walk on water
And U will catch me if I fall
And I will get lost into your eyes
I know everything will be alright
I know everything is alright

I know U didn’t bring me out here to drown
So why am I ten feet under and upside down
Barely surviving has become my purpose
Because I’m so used to living underneath the surface

If I could just see U
Everything would be all right
If i’d see U
This darkness would turn to light

And I will walk on water
And you will catch me if I fall
And I know everything will be alright
I know everything will be alright

Stop This Train

6 02 2010

by John Mayer

No I’m not color blind
I know the world is black and white
Try to keep an open mind but…
I just can’t sleep on this tonight
Stop this train I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take the speed it’s moving in
I know I can’t
But honestly won’t someone stop this train

Don’t know how else to say it, don’t want to see my parents go
One generation’s length away
From fighting life out on my own

Stop this train
I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take the speed it’s moving in
I know I can’t but honestly won’t someone stop this train

So scared of getting older
I’m only good at being young
So I play the numbers game to find away to say that life has just begun
Had a talk with my old man
Said help me understand
He said turn 68, you’ll renegotiate
Don’t stop this train
Don’t for a minute change the place you’re in
Don’t think I couldn’t ever understand
I tried my hand
John, honestly we’ll never stop this train

See once in a while when it’s good
It’ll feel like it should
And they’re all still around
And you’re still safe and sound
And you don’t miss a thing
’til you cry when you’re driving away in the dark.

Singing stop this train I want to get off and go home again
I can’t take this speed it’s moving in
I know I can’t
Cause now I see I’ll never stop this train

(think I got ’em now)

Catatan: melihat kata-katanya , rasanya lagu ini merupakan jawaban dari “No Such Thing” (1999). Lucunya,kalo No Such Thing merupakan ‘bantahan’ terhadap Ibunya, nah di lagu ini rupanya jawaban itu diperoleh dari Bapaknya ;>. Rasanya aku mengerti… Growing up is not easy at all.
