Last Song Syndrome

It’s been a while since I’ve actually thought about songs. Recently, It’s mostly been, “ooh. This seems good to listen to.” “Oooh. I like this.” “Nice. This is so meee!” it’s mostly been I, I, I.. And how music has been showcasing a certain person’s character. It might have been a Genx or GenY thing wherein it’s all individualism and being unique.

But, surprise surprise! Seems like here’s a song that brings people together – just like how it used to be. (Kudos!) From a catchy tunes to the simple lyrics that echoes the thoughts of numerous people who wants to take a leap of faith and takes “crazy” chances. The girl/boy-next door have been making covers of this song and putting it up on Youtube. Celebrities all over the world have been captivated by this resonating tune that they’ve made a parody of it. Even politicians like Mitt Romney and Barrack Obama weren’t missed by this songs’ meme. I’m actually quite proud that the music video is open-minded enough to include a tinge of “happy-ness” in it.

Here’s a supercut version of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe,” to prove my point. Enjoy! 🙂

First Time by Lifehouse

We’re both looking for something
We’ve been afraid to find
It’s easier to be broken
It’s easier to hide

Looking at you, holding my breath
For once in my life I’m scared to death
I’m taking a chance letting you inside

I’m feeling alive all over again
As deep as the sky under my skin
Like being in love, she said, for the first time
Maybe I’m wrong, I’m feeling right
where I belong with you tonight
Like being in love to feel for the first time

The world that I see inside you
Waiting to come to life
Waking me up to dreaming
Reality in your eyes

Looking at you, holding my breath
For once in my life I’m scared to death
[First Time lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com%5D

I’m taking a chance letting you inside

I’m feeling alive all over again
As deep as the sky under my skin
Like being in love, she said, for the first time
Maybe I’m wrong, I’m feeling right
where I belong with you tonight
Like being in love to feel for the first time

We’re crashing
Into the unknown
We’re lost in this
But it feels like home

I’m feeling alive all over again
As deep as the sky under my skin
Like being in love, she said, for the first time
Maybe I’m wrong, I’m feeling right
where I belong with you tonight
Like being in love to feel for the first time

Like being in love she said for the first time
Like being in love to feel for the first time

BREATHING

….::: LiFehOusE::….


I’m finding my way back to sanity again
though I don’t really know what I’m gonna do when I get there
and take a breath and hold on tight
spin around one more time
and gracefully fall back to the arms of grace

cause I am hanging on every word you say and even if you don’t want to speak tonight
that’s alright, alright with me
cause I want nothing more than
to sit outside Heaven’s door
and
listen to you breathing
is where I wanna be
yeah

I’m looking past the shadows in my mind into the truth and I’m
trying to identify the voices in my head
God which one’s you
let me feel one more time what it
feels like to feel and
break these calluses off of me
one more time

cause I am hanging on every word you say and
even if you don’t wanna speak tonight
that’s alright, alright with me
cause I want nothing more than
to sit outside your door
and
listen to your breathing
is where I wanna be
yeah
where I wanna be

I don’t want a thing from you
bet you’re tired of me
waiting for the scraps to fall off of your table to the ground
I just wanna be here now

cause I am hanging on every word you say and
even if you don’t wanna speak tonight
that’s alright, alright with me
cause I want nothing more than
to sit outside Heaven’s door
and listen to your breathing
is where I wanna be yeah

cause I am hanging on every word you say and
even if you don’t wanna speak tonight
that’s alright, alright with me
cause I want nothing more than
to sit outside Heaven’s door
and listen to you breathing
is where I wanna be
yeah
where I wanna be
where I wanna be

QUASIMODO

…:::LifehousE:::…


you can be right
and I’ll be real
honesty won’t be a pain that you’ll have to feel
cause I don’t need your approval
to find my worth
I’m trapped inside of my own mind
afraid to open my eyes cause of what I’d find and I
don’t want to live like this anymore

there goes my pain
there goes my chains
did you see them falling
because this feeling
that has no meaning

there goes the world
off of my shoulders
there goes the world
off of my back
there it goes

does it scare you that I can
be something different than you
would it make you feel more comfortable if I wasn’t
you can’t control me
and you can’t take away from me who I am

there goes my pain
there goes my chains
did you see them falling
because this feeling
that has no meaning

there goes the world
off of my shoulders
there goes the world
off of my back
you can’t change me
you can’t break me

there goes the world
off of my shoulders
there goes the world
off of my back

have you ever felt
like your only comfort was your cage
you’re not alone
I’ve felt the same as you
have you ever felt
like your secrets give you away
you’re not alone
I’ve been there too
cause everyone is looking
and everyone is laughing but I think
everyone feels the same
everybody wants to feel ok
everybody wants to
everybody wants to feel

there goes my pain
there goes my chains
did you see them falling
because this feeling
that has no meaning

there goes the world
off of my shoulders
there goes the world
off of my back
cause I don’t want it
I don’t want it
you can’t change me
you can’t break me

there goes the world
off of my shoulders
there goes the world
off of my back
there it goes

Mmmm mmm yeah
Do do do do do do do-do
Ohh Yeah

Gotta change my answering machine
Now that I’m alone
Cuz right now it says that we
Can’t come to the phone
And I know it makes no sense
Cuz you walked out the door
But it’s the only way I hear your voice anymore
(it’s ridiculous)
It’s been months
And for some reason I just
(can’t get over us)
And I’m stronger then this
(enough is enough)
No more walkin round
With my head down
I’m so over being blue
Cryin over you

And I’m so sick of love songs
So tired of tears
So done with wishing you were still here
Said I’m so sick of love songs so sad and slow
So why can’t I turn off the radio?

Gotta fix that calender I have
That’s marked July 15th
Because since there’s no more you
There’s no more anniversary
I’m so fed up with my thoughts of you
And your memory
And how every song reminds me
Of what used to be

That’s the reason I’m so sick of love songs
So tired of tears
So done with wishing you were still here
Said I’m so sick of love songs so sad and slow
So why can’t I turn off the radio?

(Leave me alone)
Leave me alone
(Stupid love songs)
Dont make me think about her smile
Or having my first child
Let it go
Turning off the radio

Cuz I’m so sick of love songs
So tired of tears
So done with wishing she was still here
Said I’m so sick of love songs so sad and slow
So why can’t I turn off the radio?
(why can’t I turn off the radio?)

Said I’m so sick of love songs
So tired of tears
So done with wishing she was still here
Said I’m so sick of love songs so sad and slow
So why can’t I turn off the radio?
(why can’t I turn off the radio?)

And I’m so sick of love songs
So tired of tears
So done with wishin you were still here
Said I’m so sick of love songs so sad and slow
Why can’t I turn off the radio?
(why can’t I turn off the radio?)
Why can’t I turn off the radio?

Do yOu beLieve in Love

..::craig David::…
 
Just one day
If I could hold you in my arms
Close to my heart where you belong
Love of my life you really are
Still be showering you with kisses like snow in winter
Remember back in the day we were like best of friends
But we were falling in love we never could pretend
Night after night we used to talk about me and you
The things we’d do together forever?

Do you believe in love?
And the promise that it brings

That you’ll never grow apart
Well that’s what she said to me
Why did you have to go?
We were inseparable
You and me will always be together for eternity

Just one day
If I could touch your face again
Words can’t describe how I’m feeling
If I could turn back the hands of time
I’d still be holding on wishes that you left behind
Remember moments when there was nothing better than
A stroll in the park walking hand in hand
I’ll never forget the times we talked about me and you
The things we do together forever

Do you believe in love?
And the promise that it brings
That you’ll never grow apart
Well that’s what she said to me
Why did you have to go?
We were inseparable
You and me will always be together for eternity

The words you said to me before you slipped away
Are still with me girl to this very day yeah
In everything I do to everything I say
You’ll always be the sunshine in my life
And yes I believe in love

Do you believe in love?
And the promise that it brings
That you’ll never grow apart
Well that’s what she said to me
Why did you have to go?
We were inseparable
You and me will always be together for eternity [repeat]

The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You're barely waking
And I'm tangled up in you
Yeah
 
But I'm open, you're closed
Where I follow, you'll go
I worry I won't see your face
Light up again
 
Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find, you and I collide
 
I'm quiet, you know
You make a first impression
I've found I'm scared to know
I'm always on your mind
 
Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
You somehow find, you and I collide
 
Don't stop here
I've lost my place
I'm close behind
 
Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills your mind
You finally find, you and I collide
 
You finally find 
You and I collide
You finally find
You and I collide
