Ha Ha by Emiliana Torrini

Anger steaming up your glasses
You’ve been holding parties all your life
‘Cause it’s long gone down
You’re still hanging around
It’s not over till it starts again
Ha ha ha
Hear me laughing
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha
It died out long ago
Did you hear me laughing in your head
When I saw you stuck in a rut again
Oh that drink went down smoothly
Just like the one before the last you had
Questions I have answered
You are still asking yourself again
Passed out in the gutter worn out
In your head your voices aren’t clearer now after all
Ha ha ha
Hear me laughing
Ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha
It died out long ago.

Three-Day Lyrical Challenge #3 – Day 2

Rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you.

Today’s song is…

What’s Forever For by Michael Martin Murphy.

I’ve been looking at people
And how they change with the times
And lately all I’ve been seeing are people
Throwing love away and losing their minds

Or maybe it’s me that’s gone crazy
‘Cause I can’t understand why
All these people keep hurting each other
When good love is so hard to come by

So what’s the glory in leaving
Doesn’t anybody ever stay together anymore
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me what’s forever for

I’ve been listening to people
And they say love is the key
And it’s not my way to let them lead me astray
It’s only that I want to believe

But I see love-hungry people
Trying their best to survive
While in their hands is a dying romance
And they’re not even trying to keep it alive

So what’s the glory in leaving
Doesn’t anybody ever stay together anymore
And if love never lasts forever
Tell me what’s forever for.

Three-Day Lyrical Challenge #3 – Day 1

Big thanks to Savvy Raj for tagging me in this Lyrical Challenge last month. Sorry that it took me quite some time to accept but here it is now! Do visit her blog here if you haven’t yet.

Rules:
1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
3. Nominate three other bloggers each day.

Today’s song is I Still by the Backstreet Boys. Yes, I’m a huge fan! It’s the kind of music I miss these days. The kind of music I’ll never get tired of listening to…

I Still – Backstreet Boys

Who are you now?
Are you still the same
Or did you change somehow?
What do you do
At this very moment when I think of you?
And when I’m looking back
How we were young and stupid
Do you remember that?

No matter how I fight it
Can’t deny it
Just can’t let you go

I still need you
I still care about you
Though everything’s been said and done
I still feel you
Like I’m right beside you
But still no word from you

Now look at me
Instead of moving on, I refuse to see
That I keep coming back
And I’m stuck in a moment
That wasn’t meant to last (to last)

I’ve tried to fight it
Can’t deny it
You don’t even know

That I still need you
I still care about you
Though everything’s been said and done
I still feel you
Like I’m right beside you
But still no word from you

No no
I wish I could find you
Just like you found me
Then I would never let you go (without you)

Though everything’s been said and done (yeah)
I still feel you (I still feel you)
Like I’m right beside you (like I’m right beside you)
But still no (still no word) word from you

Lover’s Moon by Glenn Frey

There’s a lover’s moon tonight
As I look back over my shoulder
All the stars are shining bright
Just like the nights when I used to hold her
She’s out there somewhere under the lover’s moon

Lover’s moon won’t you shine on me
I’m dancing with a memory
Wish I may, I wish I might
Have one last chance to hold her tight

And she’s waiting, I know she’s waiting 
I know she waits for me
Under the lover’s moon

There’s a lover’s moon tonight
Shining down on half of this world 
So many souls are in its light
But for me there is just one girl

And she’s waiting, I know she’s waiting 
I know she waits for me
Under the lover’s moon

What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong

I see trees of green
Red roses too
I see them bloom
For me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

I see skies of blue
And clouds of white
The bright blessed day
The dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces
Of people going by
I see friends shaking hands
Saying, “How do you do?”
They’re really saying
“I love you”

I hear babies cry
I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more
Than I’ll never know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world

Yes, I think to myself
What a wonderful world.

I really love this challenge as I get to share my favorite songs/lyrics, I know I only get to share three for every challenge and it’s not so easy to choose which would make the cut but still! Do visit Himani’s blog here if you haven’t yet!

  3. Nominate three other bloggers each day.

The song/lyrics I want to share with you today is:

Is There Something by Christopher Cross

Lately I see clouds of sorrow in your eyes
Some deep sadness you can never quite disguise
Now I’m scared to ask what it’s leading to
But I’m more afraid of not asking you

Is there something that you want to tell me
Is there something that I ought to know
Are we something that’s still worth fighting for
Or should I simply let you go
Is there something I can do to reach you
Are we something more than history
I’ll find some way to convince you to stay
If you just tell me honestly
Is there something left of you and me

You’ve got secrets you’ve been keeping for too long
And I’m going crazy acting like there’s nothing wrong
I can taste the truth every time we kiss
And I can’t go on
At least not like this

Is there something that you want to tell me
Is there something that I ought to know
Are we something that’s still worth fighting for
Or should I simply let you go
Is there something I can do to reach you
Are we something more than history
I’ll find some way to convince you to stay
If you just tell me honestly
Is there something left of you and me

I don’t want to lose you
But what’s the use of holding on
I don’t really have you
If the feeling’s gone

Is there something I can do to reach you
Are we something more than history
If there’s no way to convince you to stay
And be the way we used to be
Then there’s something that I want to tell you
And I want you to believe it’s true
We had something that I’ll never forget
Even if I wanted to
‘Cause part of me will always be with you

Three-Day Lyrical Challenge – Day 3

It’s the third and final day of the Three-Day Lyrical Challenge so let me thank Sonali once again for tagging me. For my readers who haven’t checked out her blog yet, do visit here.

I’m tagging Hiral N., Shreya, and Mark Anthony.

And my third and final song is:

Swept Away by Christopher Cross

I never had anything happen so fast
Took one look and I shattered like glass
I guess I let it show 
‘Cause your smile told me you knew

That you’re everything I ever wanted at once
There’s no holding this heart 
When it knows what it wants
And I never wanted anything more than to know you

I was swept away
No one in the world but you and I
Gotta find a way 
To make you feel the way that I do

I was swept away
Without a warning
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away

And so it begins
This journey of love
The summer wind carries us to places all our own
The words of a look

The language of touch
The way that you want me means so much
And I never wanted anything more 
Than to love you

I am swept away
No one in the world but you and I
Gotta find a way 
To make you feel the way that I do

I am swept away
Without a warning
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away

Away, seeing my tomorrow’s in your eyes
I was swept away

Oh, I hope I wake up soon
Oh, I’m a victim of that crazy moon

The very first time you said my name
I knew it would never sound the same
Something about me has changed forever

Can’t you see I am swept away
No one in the world but you and I
Gotta find a way 
To make you feel the way that I do

I am swept away 
Without a warning 
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away

Away, seeing my tomorrow’s in your eyes
Gotta find a way 
To make you feel the way that I do
I was swept away

Without a warning
Like night when the morning begins the day
I was swept away
We were swept away

Dreaming of you 
Swept away.

This song speaks of love and how its magic could catch you by surprise and well, yeah, get swept away! It gives me a melancholic, nostalgic, delightful and warmly romantic feeling whenever I hear it. It does make me feel good.

Thanks again, Sonali!

Happy Saturday, homo sapiens! 🙂

Three-Day Lyrical Challenge – Day 2

We are on Day 2 of the Three-Day Lyrical Challenge where I was tagged by Sonali. Do check out her blog here.

Today, I’m tagging Mariam, Karen and The_Aestheticspirit.

And my second song is:

100 Years by Five for Fighting

I’m fifteen for a moment
Caught in between ten and twenty
And I’m just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
I’m twenty two for a moment
She feels better than ever
And we’re on fire
Making our way back from Mars
Fifteen there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
Fifteen, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got hundred years to live
I’m thirty three for a moment
Still the man, but you see I’m of age
A kid on the way
A family on my mind
I’m forty five for a moment
The sea is high
And I’m heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life
Fifteen there’s still time for you
Time to buy, time to lose yourself
Within a morning star
Fifteen I’m all right with you
Fifteen, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got hundred years to live
Half time goes by
Suddenly you’re wise
Another blink of an eye
Sixty seven is gone
The sun is getting high
We’re moving on
I’m ninety nine for a moment
Dying for just another moment
And I’m just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are
Fifteen there’s still time for you
Twenty two I feel her too
Thirty three you’re on your way
Every day’s a new day
Fifteen there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to choose
Hey fifteen, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got hundred years to live.

Well, this song could be interpreted in different ways but no matter how you look at it, there’s a very profound meaning. I probably wouldn’t have cared about this song when I was 15 for I still didn’t have enough context about life yet to understand it well. I understood it quite better and appreciate it a lot more as I grow older and thus became one of my all-time favorites.

Three-Day Lyrical Challenge – Day 1

Just when I thought I’d only get tagged in “quotes challenges,” I was tagged by Sonali to participate on this — The Three-Day Lyrical Challenge! Thanks a lot, Sonali. I’m delighted to do this challenge and to my readers, do check out her blog here if you haven’t yet.

For today, I’m tagging Elly, LifeOfAmalgation and Sohair.

So I guess, I would just have to choose three of my favorite songs and share each one a day. It’s not very easy to choose which three songs will make the cut but here’s the first one.

All I Ask by Adele 

I will leave my heart at the door
I won’t say a word
They’ve all been said before you know
So why don’t we just play pretend
Like we’re not scared of what’s coming next
Or scared of having nothing left

Look, don’t get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
‘Cause what if I never love again?

I don’t need your honesty
It’s already in your eyes
And I’m sure my eyes, they speak for me
No one knows me like you do
And since you’re the only one that matters
Tell me who do I run to?

Look, don’t get me wrong
I know there is no tomorrow
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you

Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
‘Cause what if I never love again?

Let this be our lesson in love
Let this be the way we remember us
I don’t wanna be cruel or vicious
And I ain’t asking for forgiveness
All I ask is

If this is my last night with you
Hold me like I’m more than just a friend
Give me a memory I can use
Take me by the hand while we do what lovers do
It matters how this ends
‘Cause what if I never love again?

It’s funny how very much I love this song but hate what it reminds me of at the same time. Anyway, this is a very beautiful but heartbreaking song. I personally think that whatever the reason for the breakup, it’s always better not to end it ugly. I mean, it probably makes the parting easier to bear because the last memories you’ll have of each other are good ones. If only you could create a wonderful memory before it all ends because what if you never love again?
