I Might Have It That Much But Let The Moon Alone

29 Oct

Today is a Thursday’s dawn. And Yesterday was a blue day.

Let alone touching nor seeing, I read nothing. I received nothing.

I am trying but somehow always ended up failing.

It wasn’t a good day to begin with nor a good day to end up with.

But instead making it better or at least bearable,

Those become another contribution to be the otherwise.

Yes, I might have it that much to you.

But, please, please.

Let the moon alone.

Today is a Thursday’s dawn. And Yesterday was a blue day.

You know I dislike it that way.

I KNOW I DISLIKE IT THAT WAY.

Regards,
Dea

Without You – David Guetta

8 Jul

I can’t win, I can’t reign
I will never win this game
Without you, without you
I am lost, I am vain,
I will never be the same
Without you, without you

I won’t run, I won’t fly
I will never make it by
Without you, without you
I can’t rest, I can’t fight
All I need is you and I
Without you

Without you
Oh, oh, oh!
You! You! You!
Without
You! You! You!
Without you

Can’t erase, so I’ll take blame
But I can’t accept that we’re estranged
Without you, without you
I can’t quit now, this can’t be right
I can’t take one more sleepless night
Without you, without you

I won’t soar, I won’t climb
If you’re not here, I’m paralyzed
Without you, without you
I can’t look, I’m so blind
I lost my heart, I lost my mind
Without you

Without you
Oh, oh, oh!
You! You! You!
Without
You! You! You!
Without you

I am lost, I am vain,
I will never be the same
Without you, without you
Without you

“Daylight”

11 Apr

Here I am waiting
I’ll have to leave soon
Why am I holding on?
We knew this day would come
We knew it all along
How did it come so fast?

This is our last night but it’s late
And I’m trying not to sleep
Cause I know, when I wake, I will have to slip away

And when the daylight comes I’ll have to go
But tonight I’m gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we’ll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

Here I am staring at your perfection
In my arms, so beautiful
The sky is getting bright, the stars are burning out
Somebody slow it down

This is way too hard, cause I know
When the sun comes up, I will leave
This is my last glance that will soon be memory

And when the daylight comes I’ll have to go
But tonight I’m gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we’ll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

I never want it to stop
Because I don’t wanna start all over
Start all over
I was afraid of the dark
But now it’s all that I want
All that I want, all that I want

And when the daylight comes I’ll have to go
But tonight I’m gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we’ll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

And when the daylight comes I’ll have to go
But tonight I’m gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we’ll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

Book Review: “Life is So Good” by George Dawson

20 Jul

Throughout my years in school, I have found it difficult to get motivated. I love learning, but doing actual homework and studying for exams can get a bit monotonous over time. After reading Life Is So Good, I need to rethink my priorities. George Dawson, the narrator and subject of the book, never seemed to lack in motivation and perseverance. So much of his life was unpredictable and often dangerous, but that did not stop him from living it to the fullest.

From the beginning of the book, and essentially Dawson’s life, he was working hard. As a farmer’s son, he learned the value and necessity of hard work and its benefits, no matter how small. He knew that family came first and he recognized the need his parents had for his help. I too grew up learning that working hard paid off, but I certainly did not have the life Dawson had. I can’t remember the last time I got up before dawn, but Dawson did it every day, even when he was little boy. His willingness to be so helpful to his parents is admirable, as were the conditions he had to live in at the time in Marshall, Texas.

Discrimination was a large part of Dawson’s life, adding frustration and cruelty to his already difficult situation. Reading about how horribly he and other African Americans were treated at the time was so shocking. Of course I had learned in history classes that racism was a major feature in United States history, but reading it from the viewpoint of someone who had experienced it so often and was able to retell his exposure to it really made it concrete. Dawson’s ability to recreate such history made me feel like I was there, watching his life happen all over. One of his classmates in his reading class said that, “With Mr. Dawson here, history goes way back. History is real” (Dawnson and Glaubman, 229). Since the majority of us living today have never experienced history like Dawson, his recollection made it possible to understand it a bit better and realize that these events occurred and affected many people. There were times that I thought that he could have stood up to the people that belittled him, but his explanations as to why he didn’t were valid. I cannot imagine how difficult it was to see his friend Pete hanged for a rape he did not commit, but back then, that was common. White people were cowards and did not seem to have any guilt when they placed their injustices on others. Dawson expressed his anger and frustration towards white people, but he made it a point to understand that that was the way society was back then. The way white people treated African Americans was not fair or justifiable. Just as he knew that challenging a white person would cause trouble, Dawson realized that white people could be ostracized for not treating African Americans they way the rest of the white community did.

While reading about Dawson’s years of traveling, I realized that I wished it was that easy. Not to say that his decision to leave his family and a consistent job was effortless, but that he wasn’t worried about what might happen along the way. At the end of the book, he discusses how people today should worry less. As a natural worrywart, I can’t imagine how he lived through so many of his lifetime experiences and yet didn’t seem to worry. He knew that something would come at the right time, whatever it was he needed and it seemed that much of what he relied on was answered by people showing kindness and generosity. Kindness has great powers and this was proven throughout Dawson’s life, be it the Canadian men helping him find snow, or the homeless men and women who would share what little food they had. Dawson was sure to repay the kindness in some way, but it was sure to come back to him again.

Dawson’s kindness continues today with him staying in school and learning how to read. Though he’s admitted to wanting to take days off, he doesn’t because he knows that if he slacked, his classmates would follow suit. They rely on him to be a role model and motivate them to succeed. This is his message throughout the book and I wouldn’t doubt if a lot of people recognized the potential they could have if they work hard and never stop learning. I hope to one day be motivated enough to continue learning because there is never a reason not to.

I Will Learn to Love Again

3 Nov

(To love again…)

Drowning in tears that wont be me

I will soon be free from the chains of all this pain inside

And though I cry it wont be long till I regain the strength to know

I can go on

I will find my way through the break I will not give up on love

I believe

I will learn to love again I will learn to trust

Once this heart can start to mend

I will learn to

Learn to love again

All of these tears time will dry them I will survive them

And make it through into another day all of this pain

Time will heal it there’ll be a time sometime I know

I won’t feel it

I will live through life without you after the hurting is done

I believe

[chorus]

I will find someone who deserves my touch after all the hurt is through

I will be so over you I will not give up on love

I believe yeah

[chorus]

Oh yeah yeah oh oh love again

(To love again…)

Daniel Bedingfield – If You’re Not The One

28 Jun

If your not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
If your not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call?
If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all?

I never know what the future brings, but I know your here with me now.
We’ll make it through and I hope you are the one I share my life with.

Another one year of your age.

Happy Birthday !!

At least that’s all I can say to you

Apart from this distance, our distance.

Heck, I don’t even know where you were.

I know almost nothing I can tell about you.

I lost you long time ago, without ever actually made you mine.

You can be the butterflies I feel in my belly

You can be the prince and I can be your princess
You can be the sweet tooth I can be the dentist
You can be the shoes and I can be the laces
You can be the heart that I spill on the pages
You can be the vodka and I can be the chaser
You can be the pencil and I can be the paper
You can be as cold as the winter weather
But I don’t care as long as were together

Maribelle Añes – Better Off Alone (original)

19 Aug

.

.

.

Verse 1:

all alone
it’s okay
I know my girls got my back
I can handle that
and get through my day
on my own
but it’s alright
they be chasing
but I ain’t wasting
I don’t fall for these guys

I’d rather be single (getting the attention)
and run around you know (did i forget to mention)
that I broke it off
with him, it’s about time
he was holding me back (missing opportunities)
but I ain’t like that (blowing off these cuties)
if anything I wish that I could rewind

Chorus:
I’m afraid to love
i’m afraid to try
but I’m better on my own
having a good time
he made me weak
he made me blind
over the years i’ve grown
and now I realise

i’m better off alone, I

Verse 2:
now I’m strong
safe to say
It’s finally reality
I got him out of my way
I was wrong
playing safe
now I can do whatever, I won’t say never
I won’t push boys away

so let me have fun (gotta keep em coming)
I’m in no rush (I got time for loving)
everything I do there’s no appreciation
you’ve had your chance (then you went and blew it)
been there, done that (I always thought u knew it)
you always say that you don’t get the situation

(Chorus)

Bridge:
I might be conceited
you better believe it
I got I them boys crawling on their knees for me
and I can’t, I’ve spent
precious time on you
when “I’m sorry” just won’t do
I’m better off without you

(Chorus)x2

The day you went away – M2M

12 Jun

#Verse 1
Well I wonder could it be
When I was dreaming ’bout you baby
You were dreaming of me
Call me crazy, call me blind
To still be suffering is stupid after all of this time

#Pre-chorus 1
Did I lose my love to someone better
And does she love you like I do
I do, you know I really really do

#Chorus
Well hey
So much I need to say
Been lonely since the day
The day you went away
So sad but true
For me there’s only you
Been crying since the day
The day you went away

#Verse 2
I remember date and time
September twenty second
Sunday twenty five after nine
In the doorway with your case
No longer shouting at each other
There were tears on our faces

#Pre-chorus 2
And we were letting go of something special
Something we’ll never have again
I know, I guess I really really know

Chorus
The day you went away
The day you went away

Pre-chorus 1
Chorus

#Bridge
Why do we never know what we’ve got ’til it’s gone
How could I carry on
The day you went away
Cause I’ve been missing you so much I have to say
Been crying since the day
The day you went away

The day you went away
The day you went away

My Happy Ending lyrics

2 Jun

Songwriters: Walker, Butch; Lavigne, Avril;

(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
So much for my happy ending
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)

(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
So much for my happy ending
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)

(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh)

Lets talk this over
It’s not like we’re dead
Was it something I did?
Was it something you said?

Don’t leave me hanging
In a city so dead
Held up so high
On such a breakable thread

You were all the things I thought I knew
And I thought we could be

You were everything, everything
That I wanted
We were meant to be, supposed to be
But we lost it

All of our memories so close to me
Just fade away
All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending

(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
So much for my happy ending
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)

(Oh, oh, oh, oh)

You’ve got your dumb friends
I know what they say
They tell you I’m difficult
But so are they

But they don’t know me
Do they even know you?
All the things you hide from me
All the stuff that you do?

You were all the things I thought I knew
And I thought we could be

You were everything, everything
[- From :http://www.elyrics.net/read/a/avril-lavigne-lyrics/my-happy-ending-lyrics.html -]
That I wanted
We were meant to be, supposed to be
But we lost it

All of our memories so close to me
Just fade away
All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending

It’s nice to know that you were there
Thanks for acting like you cared
And making me feel like I was the only one

It’s nice to know we had it all
Thanks for watching as I fall
And letting me know we were done

He was everything, everything
That I wanted
We were meant to be, supposed to be
But we lost it

All of the memories so close to me
Just fade away
All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending

You were everything, everything
That I wanted
We were meant to be, supposed to be
But we lost it

All of the memories so close to me
Just fade away
All this time you were pretending
So much for my happy ending

(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
So much for my happy ending
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)

(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
So much for my happy ending
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)

(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)

Küss Mich – Halt Mich – Lieb Mich

30 May


Wenn es dich doch gibt 
Ein Herz (das) nur für mich schlägt 
Wer sagt mir heut‘ was Morgen noch zählt? 
Wird die Welt bald neu geboren? 
Der Weg ist mit Blumen und Sternen gesät 
Ich spür mein Held wird kommen 
Siehst du was ich seh‘ 
Auch Wunder könn‘ geschehen 

If you exist after all
A heart (that) beats only for me
Who tells me today what matters still tomorrow?
Will the world soon be reborn?
The road is sown with flowers and stars
I feel my hero will come
Do you see what I see?
Even miracles can happen

Dann wünsch‘ ich mir Flüsse die Wasser noch führ‘n
Dornen die weichen und Rosen die blüh‘n
Küss mich – Halt mich – lieb mich
für immer
Küss mich – Halt mich – lieb mich
Ein Prinz der sein Leben sein Herz für mich gibt
Ein Kuss der die Nacht und den Zauber besiegt
Küss mich – Halt mich – lieb mich
Küss mich – Halt mich – lieb michh

Then I wish (to see) rivers which still have water
Thorns which give way and roses which bloom
Kiss me – hold me – love me
for ever
Kiss me – hold me – love me
A prince who gives his life and his heart for me
A kiss which defeats the night and the magic
Kiss me – hold me – love me
Kiss me – hold me – love me

Wenn es dich doch gibt
Ein Herz nur für mich schlägt
Dann wünsch ich mir Flüsse die Wasser noch führ‘n
Dornen die weichen und Rosen die blüh’n

What if I kissed you now – Darin

20 May

So here we are

Trying to talk some sense into our hearts
This can’t be love
We’re best of friends, and that should be enough
But If that’s true
Tell me why I’m holding on to you
Like I’d never let you go

What if I kissed you now
And turned it all around
What if I kissed you now
And stars fell to the ground?
Would I be losing you, if I do, or would you want me too?
What if I kissed you now
What if I do?

What’s going on?
Someone’s gone and changed our special song
They dimmed the lights
See them shine, like planets in our eyes
Here it comes
All that I’ve been missing for so long
I (could) never let you go

Oh, did I leave it for too long?
Has the moment that I’ve dreamed of come and gone?
Time will tell, but I know this much is true
I don’t want to dream of anyone but you

.

this song seems to be a nice one to hear. simple and easy to understand. I figured out about this song when I was doing some researches for my task :). then, I think it’ll be my whole week’s song :). plus, I’ll add it to my playlist 😀

Review: “EAT PRAY LOVE” Movie

12 May

        In “Eat Pray Love,” Julia Robert’s character, Liz Gilbert, takes a holiday from her miserable life as a well-respected, financially secure New York writer, loved by men she cannot love back and despairing of her own inner emptiness. She travels the world to seek enlightenment, a journey — she never hesitates to tell anyone she meets — outside her own comfort zone. For the viewer though, it’s anything but. The film never ventures, even once, into a situation that does not reek of comfy familiarity.

        Of course, the Elizabeth Gilbert memoir on which the movie is based also got criticized for its Western fetishization of Eastern thought and the overly self-conscious nature of this journey — reportedly paid for with a publisher’s advance for the book itself. None of that stopped her memoir from becoming a bestseller translated into 40 languages. So with Julia Roberts making one of her increasingly rare starring appearances and the sensual beauty of Italy, India and Indonesia as backdrop for the romanticized navel-gazing, “Eat Pray Love” should attract a substantial female audience, a demographic ill-served by the summer’s mostly testosterone-fueled movies.

 

        Working from a screenplay he wrote with Jennifer Salt, director Ryan Murphy, the creator of TV series “Nip/Tuck” and “Glee,” never loses track of the story’s bestseller attributes: foreign landscapes photographed at sunset or sunrise, food displayed with mouth-watering intensity, peripheral characters bursting with vitality, all men unnaturally gorgeous — or at least interesting — and female self-discovery as the unwavering central focus.

 

        Reeling from a divorce and an affair that didn’t do the trick either, Liz tells her best friend and publisher (Viola Davis, not given nearly enough to do) that she intends to chuck everything for a year to research herself in exotic foreign climes. Everyone including her ex (Billy Crudup) and new boy toy (James Franco) pull long faces, but this gal makes a career out of thinking of nobody but herself.

        Several months are spent in Rome to enjoy food and life (Eat), then off to India for meditation in an ashram (Pray) and finally to Bali, Indonesia, to search for “balance” but finding herself off-balance instead with a Brazilian divorcee (Love).

        Each segment is thoroughly enjoyable in a touristic sort of way. And Roberts throws herself wholeheartedly into the role of the inner-truth seeker.

        There, of course, lies the problem. One can line a bookcase with memoirs, novels and DVDs about urban malcontents discovering food and life in Mediterranean climes. At least another bookshelf could be devoted to popular entertainments where Westerners seek spirituality in the East, dating back to Somerset Maugham’s “The Razor’s Edge” if not the earlier works of Hermann Hesse. Bali is a bit off the beaten path for such self-help entertainments, but after those terrorist bombings the place could use positive publicity.

 

        In each segment, Liz is given role models. In Rome, a Scandinavian (Tuva Novotny) and local language coach (the absurdly handsome Luca Argentero) show Liz how to embrace life through cuisine. The girls even nip away to Naples for a pizza sequence! Her Roman lesson: Don’t be afraid to attack life.

        In an unnamed Indian ashram, Richard Jenkins plays a Texan who struggles to forgive himself for his alcoholic past. He mocks and kids Liz to cajole her to do likewise. Then a young girl (Rushita Singh), who dreads her arranged marriage, reminds Liz of her own unarranged marriage and its failure. Her Indian lesson: God dwells within me.

        In Bali, two healers (Indonesian screen legend Christine Hakim and newcomer Hadi Subiyanto) provide Liz with medicine for her ailing soul. Her Bali lesson: If you’re a good girl, you may get Javier Bardem.

        As Liz literally sails off into a sunset, you imagine that last lesson will be the one that sticks.

        There is an undeniable attractiveness to all this, however doubtful the self-realization lessons may be. One can imagine whiling away pleasant hours watching this movie again as a late-night DVD or in-flight movie. The charms of each location and the vigor of the film’s supporting players cast a romantic glow. No, travel — and certainly self-realization — is never quite like this with Robert Richardson’s iridescent landscapes and loving portraits of colorful bystanders, the brilliant, exotic sets and costumes by Bill Groom and Michael Dennison and nicely unhurried pace of Bradley Buecker’s editing. But it should be.

Shall I compare you?

4 May

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

Thou art more lovely and more temperate:

Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:

Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;

And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course, untrimm’d;

But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;

Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest;

So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

William Shakespeare.
