because i'm a girl(not me lah)

As promised yesterday. Here's a song from yesteryear. This song, correction, this music video was all the crazy during A-Levels. Now that I'm older the video does feel abit cheesy but still it's what the guy's willing to do for the girl that counts...I guess... You must watch the video for the full on experience so I'm not including the mp3 with this one. By the way, the recorded an English version which I have included below but I think they really shouldn't have. You be the judge. Enjoy!


Kiss - Because I'm a girl

I just can`t understand the ways
Of all the men and their mistakes,
You give them all your heart
And then they rip it all away...

You told me how much you loved me,
And how our love was meant to be.
And I believed in you,
I thought that you would set me free...

You should`ve just told me the truth,
That I wasn`t the girl for you...
Still I didn`t have a clue,
So my heart depended on you...Whoah

Although I’ll say `I hate you` now,
Though I’ll shout and curse you out...
I`ll always have love for you,
Because I am a girl.

Been told a man will leave you cold,
Get sick of you and bored...
I know that it`s no lie,
I gave my all still I just cry.

Never again will I be fooled,
To give my all when nothing`s true...
I won`t be played again,
But I will fall in love again...

You should`ve just told me the truth,
That I wasn`t the girl for you...
Still I didn`t have a clue,
So my heart depended on you...Whoah

Although I’ll say `I hate you` now,
Though I’ll shout and curse you out...
I`ll always have love for you,
Because I am a girl.

I loved you so...
Now you leave me in the cold,
How could this be?
I thought that you`d only love me...

Into the night,
I will pray that you`re all right.
You hurt me so,
I just can`t let you go ---

You took advantage of my
willingness,
To do anything for love.
Now I’m the only one in pain...
Will you please take it all away… Oh

Never thought born being a girl,
How I can love you and be burned...
And now I will build a wall,
To never get torn again.

Although I’ll say `I hate you` now,
Though I’ll shout and curse you out...
I`ll always have love for you,
Because I am a girl.

Although I’ll say `I hate you` now,
Though I’ll shout and curse you out...
I`ll always have love for you,
Because I am… a girl.

i just havnt met u yet

Love this song. I was driving back from Mentari today when it came on the radio. I kinda can relate to this song. I always used to get bombarded with questions on why I'm still single and have no girlfriend. Some even thought I was gay! Nauzubillah! hehehe well, I guess at that time, for a long time, "I just hadn't met you yet"... hehehe ok, enjoy the song k...


Haven't Met You Yet
Songwriters: Buble, Michael Steven; Chang, Alan; Foster, Amy;

I'm not surprised, not everything lasts
I've broken my heart so many times, I stopped keeping track
Talk myself in, I talk myself out
I get all worked up, then I let myself down

I tried so very hard not to lose it
I came up with a million excuses
I thought, I thought of every possibility

And I know someday that it'll all turn out
You'll make me work, so we can work to work it out
And I promise you, kid, that I give so much more than I get
I just haven't met you yet

I might have to wait, I'll never give up
I guess it's half timing, and the other half's luck
Wherever you are, whenever it's right
You'll come out of nowhere and into my life

And I know that we can be so amazing
And, baby, your love is gonna change me
And now I can see every possibility

And somehow I know that it'll all turn out
You'll make me work, so we can work to work it out
And I promise you, kid, I give so much more than I get
I just haven't met you yet

They say all's fair
In love and war
But I won't need to fight it
We'll get it right and we'll be united

And I know that we can be so amazing
And being in your life is gonna change me
And now I can see every single possibility

And someday I know it'll all turn out
And I'll work to work it out
Promise you, kid, I'll give more than I get
Than I get, than I get, than I get

Oh, you know it'll all turn out
And you'll make me work so we can work to work it out
And I promise you kid to give so much more than I get
Yeah, I just haven't met you yet

I just haven't met you yet
Oh, promise you, kid
To give so much more than I get

I said love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love
(I just haven't met you yet)
Love, love, love, love
Love, love
I just haven't met you yet

november rain

Just reached home from work. Today Taekwondo class is at 8 so I have some time to lepak2 at home before I go after Maghrib. Was rushing home from work today to try to out run the rain. In Bangi it was already getting dark but by the time I reached the Mines it was all clear. You see, that's the problem when you have to travel across several "weather zones" to get to work and back. You can never predict the weather! Anyways, the out running the rain bit to an extent I succeeded until it started pouring in front of Zoo Negara. =S Nasib baik that is already near my house. I would never stop under a bridge/flyover. Neither should you. I'd rather be a little wet than risk being run over by an unsuspecting car. Well, anyhow i reached home relatively dry.

Which brings me to the title of the post. Ironic really. It's not November and rain in Malaysia is not really cold. You know how certain songs remind you of an era or certain period in your life? Well, "November rain" reminds me of college and doing my A-Levels. "Sweet Child of mine" was the morning anthem and every morning I could hear the song being played aloud by a college mate before going to class. Ah... those were the days. Anyways, here's the song with the lyrics below. Everybit relevant today as it was back then. Enjoy!


November Rain by Guns N' Roses

When I look into your eyes
I can see a love restrained
But darlin' when I hold you
Don't you know I feel the same
'Cause nothin' lasts forever
And we both know hearts can change
And it's hard to hold a candle
In the cold November rain
We've been through this such a long long time
Just tryin' to kill the pain
But lovers always come and lovers always go
An no one's really sure who's lettin' go today
Walking away
If we could take the time to lay it on the line
I could rest my head
Just knowin' that you were mine
All mine
So if you want to love me
then darlin' don't refrain
Or I'll just end up walkin'
In the cold November rain

Do you need some time...on your own
Do you need some time...all alone
Everybody needs some time...on their own
Don't you know you need some time...all alone
I know it's hard to keep an open heart
When even friends seem out to harm you
But if you could heal a broken heart
Wouldn't time be out to charm you

Sometimes I need some time...on my
own Sometimes I need some time...all alone
Everybody needs some time...on their own
Don't you know you need some time...all alone

And when your fears subside
And shadows still remain, ohhh yeahhh
I know that you can love me
When there's no one left to blame
So never mind the darkness
We still can find a way
'Cause nothin' lasts forever
Even cold November rain


Don't ya think that you need somebody
Don't ya think that you need someone
Everybody needs somebody
You're not the only one
You're not the only one

everything i own

I was shopping tonight at KLCC for some *eek* kitchen ware for the house when this song came up on my iPod. It's a lovely song I first heard from my mum and later in a Yamaha Motorcycle advert on tele. Apparently lots of people have made covers of it including Boy George, Nsync and Vanessa Hudgens. It was recorded originally by the 70s band "Bread" written by band member David Gates. It was written in tribute to his late father and i think it's a very beautiful song. Tribute to all fathers around the world!


Lyrics:

You sheltered me from harm
Kept me warm, kept me warm
You gave my life to me
Set me free, set me free
The finest years I ever knew
Were all the years I had with you
And...

(Chorus:)
I would give anything I own
Give up my life, my heart, my home
I would give ev'rything I own
Just to have you back again

You taught me how to love
What it's of, what it's of
You never said too much
But still you showed the way
And I knew from watching you
Nobody else could ever know
The part of me that can't let go
And...

(Repeat chorus)

(Bridge:)
Is there someone you know
You're loving them so
But taking them all for granted?
You may lose them one day
Someone takes them away
And they don't hear
The words you long to say

(Repeat chorus)

Just to touch you once again

to you i belong

Well, another plus point for me is songs with lotsa harmony. I tgh emotionally abit unstable right now so i won't write much more. Enjoy the song!

Lyrics of B*witched - To You I Belong :
Rain fell down
You were there
I cried for you when I
hurt my hand
Storm a-rushing in
Wind was howling
I called for you, you were there
Whenever dark turns to night
And all the dreams sing their song
And in the daylight forever
To you I belong
Beside the sea
When the waves broke
I drew a heart for you in the sand
In fields where streams
Turn to rivers
I ran to you, you were there
Whenever dark turns to night
And all the dreams sing their song
And in the daylight forever
To you I belong
I ran to you, you were there
Whenever dark turns to night
And all the dreams sing their song
And in the daylight forever
To you I belong
To you I belong
To you I belong

better in time

Ah... one of my favourite songs. They say time heals all wounds. I think if you are positive about things, yet time will heal all wounds. It's called forgive and forget! hehehe... Anyways, check out the mp3 below. Might not write anything tonight. I'm trying to start sleeping earlier now... been failing miserably lately... =(

"Better In Time"

It's been the longest winter without you
I didn't know where to turn to
See somehow I can't forget you
After all that we've been through

Going coming thought I heard a knock
Who's there no one
Thinking that I deserve it
Now I realize that I really didn't know
If you didn't notice you mean everything
Quickly I'm learning to love again
All I know is I'm gonna be OK

[Chorus:]
Thought I couldn't live without you
It's gonna hurt when it heals too
It'll all get better in time
And even though I really love you
I'm gonna smile cause I deserve to
It'll all get better in time

I couldn't turn on the TV
Without something there to remind me
Was it all that easy
To just put aside your feelings

If I'm dreaming don't wanna laugh
Hurt my feelings but that's the path
I believe in
And I know that time will heal it
If you didn't notice boy you meant everything
Quickly I'm learning to love again
All I know is I'm gonna be OK

[Chorus:]
Thought I couldn't live without you
It's gonna hurt when it heals too
It'll all get better in time
And even though I really love you
I'm gonna smile cause I deserve to
It'll all get better in time

Since there's no more you and me
It's time I let you go
So I can be free
And live my life how it should be
No matter how hard it is I'll be fine without you
Yes I will

[Chorus: X2]
Thought I couldn't live without you
It's gonna hurt when it heals too
It'll all get better in time
And even though I really love you
I'm gonna smile cause I deserve to
It'll all get better in time

No Me Ames

This song reminds of my A-Levels time in KMYS. This song was an instant hit with the girls. I remember it was this song and "Because I'm a girl" by the Korean group Kiss that was popular at that time. I like duets, maybe that's why I love so many Roxette songs. Ironically, I feel that this song is quite relevant to me due to some recent events. This is actually a cover of an Italian song "Non Amarmi" but translated to spanish. The original song talks about a blind man (as in fact was the performer, Aleandro Baldi) who fears to be loved only for compassion. In the Spanish version the referrals to the blindness are absent, nevertheless the song talks about some kind of incapabilities.

The music video below involves both Jennifer Lopez with Marc Anthony who ironically are now married but at the time they were just friends. Marc Anthony has some sort of terminal illness and asks Jennifer not to love him. At the very end, Anthony dies, and we see Lopez leaving flowers on Anthony's tomb and mourning; as she's walking away, Anthony's spirit follows Lopez and watches over her. 

Well, It's only a song so just enjoy the song as it is...



Marc Anthony & Jennifer Lopez - No Me Ames (English Version)

Tell me, why are you crying?
Because I'm happy
And why are you so choked up?
From loneliness
And why are you squeezing my hand
So tightly
And your thoughts seem to be wandering?
I love you so much
Why?
Don't be so hard-headed
Stop doubting me
Although in the future there's a large sky
I'm not afraid
I want to love you
Don't love me because you think I'm different
You don't think it's right
For us to spend this time together
Don't love me because I know what a lie it would be
If you don't think I deserve your love
Don't love me
I'm going to stay another day
Don't love me because I'm lost
Because I change the world
Because it's my destiny
Because I can't change
We are a mirror
And you are my reflection
Don't love me
To be dying in a war of regret and sad thoughts
Don't love me
Because in this world
This great love deserves to soar through the blue sky
I don't know what to say
That's the truth
If people want to want to hurt us, they will
If you and I part now
They don't matter
But in this world
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't leave me
Don't listen when I say I don't love you
Don't love me
Stop breaking my heart with these "I don't love you's"
Don't love me
Because my heart is breaking
That is useless
I will always love you
Don't love me
You have suffered enough
My heart has turned cold like a million winters
Don't love me
To forget about your gray days
I want you to always love me
You and I are changing
One with the other
And always together
This love is like the sun
That comes out after a storm
Like two comets in the same galaxy
Don't love me
Don't love me
Don't love me
(Don't love me, don't love me, don't love me)
