Rather Be – Clean Bandit ft Jess Glynne

This song makes me happy every time I hear itΒ  πŸ™‚

We’re a thousand miles from comfort, we have traveled land and sea
But as long as you are with me, there’s no place I’d rather be
I would wait forever, exalted in the scene
As long as I am with you, my heart continues to beat

[Pre-Chorus:]
With every step we take, Kyoto to The Bay
Strolling so casually
We’re different and the same, gave you another name
Switch up the batteries

[Chorus:]
If you gave me a chance I would take it
It’s a shot in the dark but I’ll make it
Know with all of your heart, you can’t shame me
When I am with you, there’s no place I’d rather be
N-n-n-no, no, no, no place I’d rather be [3x]

[Verse 2:]
We staked out on a mission to find our inner peace
Make it everlasting so nothing’s incomplete
It’s easy being with you, sacred simplicity
As long as we’re together, there’s no place I’d rather be

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

When I am with you, there’s no place I’d rather be

[Bridge:]
Hmmmmmmmmmm, hoooooooooo
Be [9x]
Yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah, yeah, yeah

[Chorus]

When I am with you, there’s no place I’d rather be

Royals – Lorde

There’s always been a bit of tension between how closely associated Australians are with New Zealand.

IMG_35169866016052

New Zealand is only a 3 hour flight away from Melbourne and their accents are only mildly different from the Australian accent. They have some trouble with pronunciation of their vowels. :p

However after music artist Lorde won 2 Grammys, which is remarkable for a 17 year old girl, perhaps we’re starting to see New Zealand in a new light.

lorde

Haha. All Jokes aside, I have been listening to Lorde’s album for a while now and been loving it. Royals is one of her songs that has been staying up there in the charts lately. Love her music! πŸ™‚

I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I’m not proud of my address,
In a torn-up town, no postcode envy

But every song’s like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin’ in the bathroom
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room,
We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody’s like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.
We don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your love affair.

And we’ll never be royals (royals).
It don’t run in our blood,
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

[Verse 2]
My friends and Iβ€”we’ve cracked the code.
We count our dollars on the train to the party.
And everyone who knows us knows that we’re fine with this,
We didn’t come from money.

But every song’s like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin’ in the bathroom.
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room,
We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody’s like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your love affair

And we’ll never be royals (royals).
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

Ooh ooh oh
We’re bigger than we ever dreamed,
And I’m in love with being queen.
Ooh ooh oh
Life is great without a care
We aren’t caught up in your love affair.

And we’ll never be royals (royals).
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

Life Goes On – Gym Class Heroes

“Life Goes On”
(feat. Oh Land)

Let’s go!

[Oh Land – Chorus]
Oh when the day is gone
Oh when the nights are long
Life goes on
Life goes on
We gotta live it up til it’s gone (live it up)
Cuz we won’t be around too long
Life goes on
Life goes on (yea!)

[Travie McCoy]
Lately it seems the good dreams are few and far between
Nightmares are putting fires out with gasoline (damn)
And I’m just tryna stay righteous
Sometimes I see my own face in Christ’s likeness
And apart from my life’s vices, fifteen years young had my first mid-life crisis
But it’s tough to stay upright and pious when people you hold highest be the ones that most biased
My daddy told me misery loves company
If that’s the case they must hate they ain’t getting none from me
I don’t sweat it, it’s embedded in my DNA
I got a good heart and bad brains BMA

[Chorus]
Oh when the day is gone (yea!)
Oh when the nights are long (uh huh)
Life goes on (life goes on)
Life goes on (They say that life goes on. Let’s go!)
We gotta live it up til it’s gone
Cuz we won’t be around too long
Life goes on (Life goes on)
Life goes on (You know that life goes on)

[Travie McCoy]
Up late facebookin, playin could’ve been
And starin at an empty bed my ex-girl should’ve been in
Thinking what I woulda done different
Not a damn thing cuz finally I’m done with it
Besides I got a girl that adores me
And I never take for granted all things she does for me (never)
I shoot the moon down and put it on a wedding band
And sing “These Arms of Mine” to her
She’s Otis Redding fan
And she’ll never forget it man (never)
Cuz she knows she’ll never find a better man
Let’s go ahead with these wedding plans
Come on, let’s sing a song life goes on

[Chorus]
Oh when the day is gone (day’s gone)
Oh when the nights are long (nights are long)
Life goes on (life goes on)
Life goes on (you know that life goes on. come on!)
We gotta live it up til it’s gone (live it up)
Cuz we won’t be around too long
Life goes on (life goes on)
Life goes on (they say that life goes on)

[Bridge]
You take too much for granted
(Too much. We don’t want an inch we want miles)
I just can’t understand it
(Can’t understand it. Is it really that hard to smile?)
We don’t ask, we demand it

(We demand it. It’s gone when it’s gone.)
And I’m tryin not to panic
(But you know what they say. Life goes on.)

[Chorus]
Oh when the day is gone (yea!)
Oh when the nights are long
Life goes on (life goes on)
Life goes on (you know that life goes on. come on!)
We gotta live it up til it’s gone (live it up)
Cuz we won’t be around too long
Life goes on (life goes on)
Life goes on (life goes on)

They say that life goes on
You know that life goes on
They say that life goes on
You know that
You know that
You know that life goes on

The Thing About Love – Alicia Keys

 

“The Thing About Love”

Love
Love will come find you
Just to remind you
Of who you are

Oh love
It will forsake you
Threaten to break you
Take what you got

Everybody laughs
Everybody cries
Sure it could hurt you baby
But give it a little try
See that’s the thing about love

Friends
Sometimes will blind you
Sneak up behind you
You cant give enough

Then life
It will embrace you
Totally amaze you
So you don’t give up

Everybody laughs
Everybody cries
Sure it could hurt you baby

But give it a little try
See that’s the thing about love

Don’t tell me that I’m not the only that’s going through it all
Oh sometimes I feel like I’m the only that’s going through it all
But its time
Oh its time
For me to shine
Hey
Its my time
Oh its time
For me to shine

Its my time
Said its my time
For me to shine
Its my time
Its bout time
For me to shine

Everybody laughs
Everybody cries
Sure it could hurt u baby
But give it a little try
That’s the thing about love
That’s the thing about love
That’s the thing about
That’s the thing about love

Sad – Maroon 5

Some days are tougher than others.
Just got to remember that these times are only temporary and we do the best we can.

I’m not a bad person…everything will be alright.

Man, it’s been a long day
Stuck thinking ’bout it driving on the freeway
Wondering if I really tried everything I could
Not knowing if I should try a little harder

Oh, but I’m scared to death
That there may not be another one like this
And I confess that I’m only holding on by a thin thin thread

I’m kicking the curb cause you never heard
The words that you needed so bad
And I’m kicking the dirt cause I never gave you
The place that you needed to have
I’m so sad, saaad

Man, it’s been a long night
Just sitting here, trying not to look back
Still looking at the road we never drove on
And wondering if the one I chose was the right one
Oh, but I’m scared to death
That there may not be another one like this
And I confess that I’m only holding on by a thin thin thread

I’m kicking the curb cause you never heard
The words that you needed so bad
And I’m kicking the dirt cause I never gave you
The place that you needed to have
I’m so sad, saaad
I’m so sad, so sad

Oh, but I’m scared to death
That there may not be another one like this
And I confess that I’m only holding on by a thin thin thread

I’m kicking the curb cause you never heard
The words that you needed so bad
And I’m kicking the dirt cause I never gave you
The place that you needed to have
And I’m kicking the curb cause you never heard
The words that you needed so bad
I’m so sad, so sad

Close to Me – The Cure

Music I grew up with! Good Memories πŸ˜€

I pull my eyes out,
Hold my breath,
And wait until I shake

But if I had your faith,
Then I could make it safe and clean
If only I was sure,
That my head on the door was a dream

I’ve waited hours for this,
I’ve made myself so sick,
I wish I’d stayed asleep today
I never thought this day would end,
I never thought tonight could ever be
This close to me

But if I had your face,
Then I could make it safe and clean
If only I was sure,
That my head on the door,
Was a dream
