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)

dont dream its over

For a special someone that's feeling quite down at the moment. Don't dream it's over k.


or the audio only:

Lyrics:

There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There's a battle ahead, many battles are lost
But you'll never see the end of the road
While you're traveling with me

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Now I'm towing my car, there's a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof
In the paper today tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the T.V. page

Now I'm walking again to the beat of a drum
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
Don't ever let them win
so guys, keep the spirits up and never dream it's over k!

Hold me

Sorry, had a late night doing dishes again whilst listening to my iPod. My iPod today ran through all my Savage Garden songs. I think most of their songs have beautiful lyrics. A major plus point for me. So before i call the weekend to an end I wanna leave you with one of my favourites - Hold me. Good night everyone.



Audio only:


Lyrics:
Savage Garden - Hold me
Hey Hey
If we can't find a way out of these problems
Then maybe we don't need this
Standing face to face
Enemies at war we build defenses
And secret hiding places

I might need you to hold me tonight
I might need you to say it's alright
I might need you to make the first stand
Coz tonight I'm finding it hard to be your man

Hey Hey
More than angry words I hate this silence
It's getting so loud
Well I wanna scream
But bitterness has silenced these emotions
It's getting hard to breathe
So tell me isn't happiness
Worth more than a golden diamond ring?
I'm willing to do anything
To calm the storm in my heart
I've never been the praying kind
But lately I've been down upon my knees
Not looking for a miracle
Just a reason to believe

I might need you to hold me tonight
I might need you to say it's alright
I might need you to make the first stand
Because tonight I'm finding it hard to be your man

Do you remember not long ago?
When we used to live for the nighttime
Cherish each moment
Now we don't live we exist
We just run through our lives
So alone
That's why you've got to hold me

Hey Hey
If we can't find a way out of these problems
Then maybe we don't need this
Standing face to face
Enemies at war we build defenses
And secret hiding places

I might need you to hold me tonight
I might need you to say it's alright
I might need you to make the first stand
Because tonight I'm finding it hard to be your man

wait for you

Gosh, I can't leave you guys without a post today! I seriously had no time to write anything today. So, as usual I will post a song to help fill the void. This song is from the Album Loose by Nelly Furtado. I love the middle eastern tune to it. Lyrics are also nice about waiting for someone. Somethings are worth the wait. What ever it is, enjoy!


Lyrics for those that care:

"Wait For You"

I know you're trying to get around me baby
I know you've got me in your heart baby
I know that you could love me
If you only had a guarantee
When I look at your face it's so empty
I know I could fill you with love baby
Your soul is dying for me
Can't deny our energy

And you're far I'm near you're there
I'm here you're hurting for me I can see it in your eyes
Some of the hardest things are easy to achieve with patience

I'll wait for you until the heavens fall
I'll wait for you until the end of the world
I'll wait for you until I no longer breathe
I know that it's not impossible
I'll wait for you until you finish your fight
I'll wait for you until the timing is right
I'll wait for you until you knock on my door
Cuz right now it's feeling just like a movie yeah yeah...
Just like a movie

I know that this is hard for you
Want you to know that I'm feeling it too
It's taken some time but now I see everything
It's so clear to me I can't give up your love without dying baby
I'll wait until the sea is dry baby
How do we know what love is
Until it is free

You don't gotta do anything that you can't do
You don't gotta do anything in a hurry
You don't gotta do anything that you can't do
I know you're there you got me
You don't gotta do anything that you can't do
You don't gotta do anything in a hurry
You don't gotta do anything so don't worry
I trust you and I know you're there
I know you're there

Long night

I hope it'll be a long night of sleep tonight! I'm so tired from the sports today plus all the sleep deprivation... I don't know but since i've been posting music on my blog it seems that alot of my songs are like sad, emotional songs. I don't know why. Well, here's another one of them by one of my favourite bands - The Corrs. I totally love their musical talent when it comes to playing musical instruments. I love the violin solo in this song. the song's called Long Night, and I hope I get a long night's rest tonight! Enjoy!


MP3:


Lyrics:
The Corrs - Long night

It doesn't really matter now you're gone
You never were around that much to speak of
Didn't think that I could live without you, baby
It couldn't be that hard to live alone

But I'm all, all alone again
Thinking you will never say
that you'll be home again

And it's gonna be a long night
And it's gonna be cold without your arms
And I`m gonna get stage fright caught
in the headlights
It's gonna be a long night
And I know I'm gonna lose this fight

Once upon a time we fell in love
And I thought that I would be the only one

But now I'm on, I'm on my own again
Thinking you will never show
you won't be home again

And it's gonna be a long night
And it's gonna be cold without your arms
And I`m gonna get stage fright caught
in the headlights
It's gonna be a long night
And I know I'm gonna lose this fight

Lost in you arms baby
Lost in your arms

Now I'm on my own again
Thinking you will never show
you won't be home again

And it's gonna be a long night
And it's gonna be cold without your arms
And I`m gonna get stage fright caught
in the headlights
It's gonna be a long night
And I know I'm gonna lose this fight
I'm gonna get stage fright caught in the headlights

It's gonna be a long night
And I know I'm gonna lose this fight
I'm lost in your arms baby
Lost in your arms

queen of rain

Hehehe... whenever I do a music post it's because I'm either too busy or too lazy to write anything. Since it's been raining almost every evening this week, I'm posting a song by one of my favourite pop group - Roxette called "Queen of rain". This song was the second single taken from Roxette's 1992 album, Tourism: Songs from Studios, Stages, Hotelrooms & Other Strange Places. It was originally written and recorded for the highly successful Joyride album which was the first music album I listened to as a child. This song was initially considered as a closing track, but it was replaced by "Perfect Day" which I'm not really a fan of. Instead it was included in the 1992's Tourism album.


Ok, I took the info from Wikipedia... hehehe.. What do I like about this song? Well, first of all I the piano bits. The pace of the song is relaxed and chilled. Not as "pop-rock" as some of their other songs. I don't think the lyrics makes sense but I always like the chorus where the two singers, Per Gessle and Marie Fredriksson do a duet. I just love his voice. hehhee... ok ok... too much talking about a song... here's the music video:



 Lyrics:
Queen of Rain by Roxette
In that big big house there are fifty doors
and one of them leads to your heart.
In the time of spring I passed your gate
and tried to make a start.
All I knew was the scent of sea and dew
but I've been in love before,
how about you?
There's a time for the good in life,
a time to kill the pain in life,
dream about the sun you queen of rain
In that big house there are fifty beds
and one of them leads to your soul.
It's a bed of fear, a bed of threats,
regrets and sheets so cold.
All I knew your eyes so velvet blue,
I've been in love before, how about you?
There's a time for the good in life,
a time to kill the pain in life,
dream about the sun you queen of rain
It's time to place your bets in life,
I've played the loser's game of life,
dream about the sun you queen of rain
Time went by as I wrote your name in the sky,
fly fly away, bye bye.

what i wanted

Sorry, I'm on a bit of a Nelly roll here. The lyrics are about going after some one but ultimately not getting them but not regretting trying. =) Well, it doesn't only have to be about boys and girls kan? I'm sure all of you have gone after something you really wanted and failed getting it but glad you tried. Hahaha... like how I tried into the school rugby team when I was younger. Just by looking at me you can tell I'm not built for rugby. I tried anyways and enjoyed the non-contact bit but ultimately the coach didn't choose me. At least I can nor tell everyone that I tried out for rugby once in my life! Enjoy the song!



Lyrics: What I wanted by Nelly Furtado

I turned my head away
Didn't wanna hear what you said
You had changed your mind

I showed up insecure
But I thought you would be sure
I guess I had a lost sight

But at the end of my life
I'll look back on my life
I'll know that my life was good
At the end of my life
I'll look back on my life
See I went after you like I should
I went after what I wanted
I went after what I wanted
And I never really got it
But it don't matter at all

I guess it was a lot
To ask for these things we'd lost
I guess it was just a dream

And time changes many things
But my heart it still sings
For you, I don't know why

But at the end of my life
I'll look back on my life
and I'll know that my life was good
At the end of my life
I'll look back on my life
See I went after you like I should
I went after what I wanted
I went after what I wanted
And I never really got it
But it don't matter at all

I thought I'd spend my last days
Holding your hand
Now all of my senses lie here dead on the floor

But at the end of my life
I'll look back on my life
and I'll know that my life was good
At the end of my life
I'll look back on my life
See I went after you like I should
I went after what I wanted
I went after what I wanted
And I never really got it

Everything else I lost it
I went after what I wanted
I went after what I wanted
And the rest don't really matter
It don't matter at all x3

have u ever needed some1 so bad?

OMG! 2 music posts in a day!? Well, this couldn't wait. Just a quick one before I sign off till later tonight. Winamp shuffled and this song came up. This song reminds me of when I was form 2, when I just got my first "proper" Walkman. hehehe...Bring on the big hair! Enjoy.



Def Leppard - Have You Ever Wanted Someone So Bad

Here I am, I'm in the wrong bed again
Its a game I just can't win
There you are breathin' soft on my skin
Still you won't let me in
So come on

Why save your kisses for a rainy day?
Baby let the moment take your heart away
Have you ever needed someone so bad? yeah
Have you ever wanted someone that you just couldn't have?
Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart?
Have you ever needed someone so bad?
And your the girl I gotta have
I gotta have you baby

There you go, midnight promises again, yeah
But they're broken by the dawn
You wanna to go further, faster everyday, baby
But in the morning you'll be gone
And I'm alone
Why save your kisses for a rainy day?
Baby let the moment take your heart away

Have you ever needed someone so bad? yeah
Have you ever wanted someone that you just couldn't have?
Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart?
Have you ever needed someone so bad?

Every dream I dream is like some kind of rash 'n' reckless scene
To give out such crazy love
You must be some kind of drug
And if my time don't ever come
For me you're still the one
Damned if I don't, damned if I do
I've gotta get a fix on you

Have you ever needed someone so bad? yeah
Have you ever wanted someone that you just couldn't have?
Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart?
Have you ever needed someone so bad, so bad
Have you ever wanted someone?
Have you ever wanted someone? yeah
Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart?
Have you ever needed someone so bad?
And your the girl I gotta have
I gotta have you baby

Its a game I just can't win, oh
Have you ever needed someone so bad?
Have you ever wanted someone?
Have you ever wanted someone you just couldn't have?
Did you ever try so hard that your world just fell apart
