Today My Life Begin

I think this is a great song, both music & lyrics!

Today My Life Begin

[Bruno Mars]

I’ve been working hard so long/ seems like pain has been my only friend/ my fragile heart’s been done so wrong/ i wondered if i’d ever heal again

ohh just like all the seasons never stay the same/ all around me i can feel a change (ohh)

i will break these chains that bind me, happiness will find me leave the past behind me, today my life begins. a whole new world is waiting it’s mine for the taking i know i can make it, today my life begins

yesterday has come and gone/ and i’ve learned how to leave it where it is/ and i see that i was wrong/ for ever doubting i could win

life’s to short to have regrets/ so i’m learning now to leave it in the past and try to forget/we only have one life to live/ so you better make the best of it

can’t stop falling in love!

Sejak pertama dengar, saya nggak bisa berhenti untuk mendengarkan lagi, lagi, dan lagi. Suka banget lagu ini!!

Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John

[Norah Jones feat. Belle & Sebastian]


What a waste, I could’ve been your lover
What a waste, I could’ve been your friend
Perfect love is like a blossom that fades so quick
When it’s blowing up a storm in May

Travel south until your skin turns, woman
Travel south until your skin turns brown
Put a language in your head and get on a train
And then come back to the one you love

Yeah you’re great, you’re just part of this lifetime of dreaming
That extends to the heart of this long summer feeling
Quiet night, you see the tv’s glowing
Quiet night, you hear the walls are awake

Being you I’m getting out of a party crowd
Can I see what’s underneath your bed?
Can I stay until the milkman’s working?
Can I stay until the coffee awakes?

Do you hate me in the light?
Did you get a fright?
When you looked across from where you lay

Yeah you’re great, you’re just part of this lifetime of dreaming
That extends to the heart of this long summer feeling
All the history of wars I invent in my head
Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John

All the history of wars I invent in my head
Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John

What a waste, I could’ve been your lover

What a waste, I could’ve been your friend

have yourself a merry little x’mas

Oh yeah, mmm

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Let your heart be light

From now on your troubles will be out of sight, yeah

 

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Make the Yuletide gay

From now on your troubles will be miles away, oh

 

Here we are as in olden days

Happy golden days of yore, ah

Faithful friends who are dear to us

They gather near to us once more, ooh

 

Through the years we all will be together and

If the fates allow

Hang a shining star upon the highest bow, oh yeah, oh

And have yourself a merry little Christmas now, oh, oh

 

Faithful friends who are dear to us

They gather near to us once more, oh, oh

 

Through the years we all will be together and

If the fates allow, oh yeah

But ’til then we’ll have to muddle through somehow, oh yeah, oh, oh

And have yourself a merry little Christmas now, ooh yeah, oh, ooh

on melancholy hill…

Up on melancholy hill there’s a plastic tree

Are you here with me just looking out on the day

Of another dream

 

Well you can’t get what you want but you can get me

So let’s set up and see

‘Cause you’re my medicine when you close to me

When you close to me

 

So call in the submarine ’round the world will go

Does anybody know if we’re looking out on a day

of another dream

 

If you can’t get what you want

Then you came with me

 

Up on melancholy hill

A manatee?

Just looking out on a day when you’re close to me

When you’re close to me

waiting for the end

This is not the end
This is not the beginning,
Just a voice like a riot
Rocking every revision
But you listen to the tone
And the violent rhythm
Though the words sound steady
Something empty’s within ’em

We say Yeah!
With fists flying up in the air
Like we’re holding onto something
Thats invisible there,
Cuz we’re living at the mercy of
The pain and the fear
Until we dead it, Forget it,
Let it all disappear.

Waiting for the end to come
Wishing I had strength to stand
This is not what I had planned
It’s out of my control….

Flying at the speed of light
Thoughts we’re spinning in my head
So many things were left unsaid
It’s hard to let you go…

(Oh!) I know what it takes to move on,
I know how it feels to lie,
All I wanna do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven’t got

Sitting in an empty room
Trying to forget the past
This was never meant to last,
I wish it wasn’t so…

(Oh!) I know what it takes to move on, I know how it feels to lie,
All I wanna do
Is trade this life for something new
Holding on to what I haven’t got

What was left when that fire was gone?
I thought it felt right but that right was wrong
All caught up in the eye of the storm
And trying to figure out what it’s like moving on
And i don’t even know what kind of things I’ve said
My mouth kept moving and my mind went dead
So, picking up the pieces, now where to begin?
The hardest part of ending Is starting again!!

Coba Katakan – Maliq & D’Essentials

coba, coba katakan kepadaku bahwa kita sedang berjalan menuju satu alasan,
janganlah kau katakan bila kita memang tak ada tujuan, dari apa yang dijalankan,

aku tak ingin terus terdiam memandangi harapan,
terlena akan manis cinta dan berujung kecewa,
aku tak ingin terus menunggu sesuatu yang tak pasti,
lebih baik kita menangis dan terluka hari ini..

coba, coba katakan kepadaku sekali lagi bila kita memang benar akan kesana,
buktikan dan buat aku percaya bahwa kita bisa, mewujudkan bahagia,

aku tak ingin terus terdiam memandangi harapan,
terlena akan manis cinta dan berujung kecewa,
aku tak ingin terus menunggu sesuatu yang tak pasti,
lebih baik kita menangis dan terluka hari ini..

ohh..Β  habis sudah semua rangkai kata..
telah terungkap semua yang kurasa..
yang kuingin akhir yang bahagia.. .

yang ku inginkan..
satu tujuan..
sebuah kenyataan..
bukan impian..
bukan harapan..
bukan alasan..
satu kepastian..
