Lyrics: The Long Goodbye

The Long Goodbye
by Brooks and Dunn

I know they say if you love somebody
You should set them free
But it sure is hard to do, sure is hard to do
I know they say if it don’t come back again
Then it’s meant to be
Those words don’t pull me through, ’cause I’m still in love with you

I spend each day here waiting for a miracle
But it’s just you and me going through the mill
Climbing up a hill

This is the long goodbye
Somebody tell me why,
Two lovers in love can’t make it,
Just what kinda love keeps breaking her heart
No matter how hard I try, I’ll always make you cry
Come on baby, it’s over let’s face it
All that’s happening here is a long goodbye

Sometimes I ask my heart did we really
Give our love a chance
But I know without a doubt, we turned it inside out
And if we walked away would it make more sense
But it tears me up inside, just to think we still could try

How long must we keep running on a carousel
Going round and round and never getting anywhere
On a wing and prayer

This is the long goodbye
Somebody tell me why,
Two lovers in love can’t make it,
Just what kinda love keeps breaking her heart
No matter how hard I try, I’ll always make you cry
Come on baby, it’s over let’s face it
All that’s happening here is a long goodbye

Long goodbye~

This song is going out to a special someone.

Lyrics: He’s All I Need

He’s All I Need
by Lincoln Brewster

We all like to hide behind our different faces
And we all like to pretend we’re in different places
Well I don’t need anyone to give me approval
And I don’t mind if you laugh and call me a loser

He’s all I need
To live to be
He’s my decree
Oh His majesty
He’s all I’ll ever need

We all like to pray for faith when we’ve misplaced it
And we all like to clothe our truth so we’re not naked
But you and me we don’t need to beg or steal or borrow
‘Cause we’re the kids of the King of the great tomorrow

He’s all I need
To live to be
He’s my decree
Oh His majesty
He’s all I’ll ever need

Hope in Him
Trust in Him
Reach for Him
Let the flood of God’s tears
Drown the seeds
That should have never been
Never been

He’s all I need
To live to be
He’s my decree
Oh His majesty
He’s all I’ll ever need

He’s really all that I need. Especially when I think about today when He has risen. My God is great and awesome. I guess everything I need is summed up in Genesis 1:1.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

– Genesis 1:1 (New International Version)

God created everything. I really need to just let everything go and just let God. in relationships, in my studies and in my finances, everything. I’ll just let God be God and let Him take charge.

Lyrics: When I Praise

When I Praise
by FFH

Looking for love and I lost my way
Another long night has turned to day
Nobody likes to feel this way
So I draw close to you
It’s what I’m supposed to do

Looking for love and I close my eyes
I run to you with no disguise
You hold me close and say “it’s fine”
You take me in your arms
And you soothe this heart of mine

And I throw my hands up in the air
Here’s my heart ’cause I don’t care
What they say about me, I gotta praise
I throw my hands up in the air
And I know that You will find me there
Find me when I praise

Looking for love and I hide my face (Looking for love and I hide my face)
What about the scars and disgrace (Should I hide my disgrace)
But You meet me here in spite of my shame
Your blood covers it all
And You carry me away

And I throw my hands up in the air
Here’s my heart ’cause I don’t care
What they say about me, I gotta praise
I throw my hands up in the air
And I know that You will find me there
Find me when I praise

My heart is on my sleeve and I am on my knees
And my hands are in the air, oh yeah
And it’s hard to believe that I am on my knees
With my hands in the air, oh yeah
And You come close beside me
And You say You’re here to guide me
I don’t ever have to be alone
And Your love has led me home

Looking for love and I found my way (Looking for love and I found my way)
I ran to You and I heard You say (I ran to You and I heard You say)
Everything’s gonna be OK
I don’t have to wait another day

And I throw my hands up in the air
Here’s my heart ’cause I don’t care
What they say about me, I gotta praise
I throw my hands up in the air
And I know that You will find me there

And I throw my hands up in the air
Here’s my heart ’cause I don’t care
What they say about me, I gotta praise
I throw my hands up in the air
And I know that You will find me there
Find me when I praise

Looking for love and I lost my way (Looking for love and I lost my way)
Another long night has turned to day (Another long night has turned to day)
Nobody likes to feel this way

These are the words that my heart’s crying out. I’m looking for love and I’ve lost my way. Nobody likes to feel this way. But God You hold me close and You say that no matter what, You’ll always love me. Lord, if You weren’t there for me, it’s really not worth my living. Thank You Lord for loving me when no one else does.

Exile

I guess now that I’m no longer needed, I can go away once more. It’s always the same with me. After I’ve done my part, there’s nothing left to hold me or anchor me to a place. Everything else are just formalities. What’s left? FOC’s over. Nothing to look forward to. The ball’s in her court and she’s just not interested. FGB and Hawt Chick has things going their way; I’d just be something extra. Even Java and Tinkerbell are already together.

After awhile, it’s just me. How do I justify staying on when I’m not needed?

I’m actually glad now that it is over. Now there is no reason for me to be there at all. I can easily just move on. Or can I? I don’t know. I’m too attached to certain people that I may not want to leave. But I guess for my sanity’s sake… I have to.

Actually, part of me wants to stay on. I want to stay on and wait for her. But on the other hand… What’s the use? Is she worth my waiting for? Yes. But would she choose me? No. Haha. So. What should I do? Stay or go?

Updates: In all fairness to the guys, they’ve been pretty friendly to me. But I guess that’s the thing. I just don’t click with them. No matter how I see it, I’m still the outsider. No matter how I try to get into the action, I’m always left feeling like I’m viewing everything from the outside. But like I said, it’s not their fault. It’s just me. I’m never much of a people person and I guess I never will.

Easter Bunny

Now that I’m still at it… Why is a bunny associated with Easter? I understand the significance of the egg. The eggs symbolises new life. But the bunny? I just looked it up online and man… I don’t know. Here’s the link. Oh wells.

Easter

Today’s Easter. I wonder why people like to put the word ‘sunday’ behind easter. It’s like so redundant because easter always falls on sundays. So, I got to thinking. There are only 2 holidays in the world that matters to me as a Christian. One’s Easter and the other’s Christmas.

Christmas celebrates the birth of Jesus and Easter celebrates the very basis of our faith. That Jesus died for our sins and that He ultimately rose again 3 days later, forever conquering death and that who evers believes that He died for our sake will have life everlasting.

And yet, I am not going to church. Even though these 2 festivities are the ones that actually matters to me, I have decided to just stay home. Or maybe, I might want to get out and catch a movie or something. My reasoning is this, I am not a sunday christian. I’m not someone who goes to church on sundays and act like I’m not a christian the other 6 days of the week. I’m not someone who only remembers church on Christmas or on Easter. In essence, I’m not a christian. I’m a believer.

Lyrics: Basket Case

Basket Case
by Green Day

Do you have the time
to listen to me whine
About nothing and everything
all at once
I am one of those
Melodramatic fools
Neurotic to the bone
No doubt about it

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I’m cracking up
Am I just paranoid?
Or I’m just stoned

I went to a shrink
To analyze my dreams
She says it’s lack of sex
that’s bringing me down
I went to a whore
He said my life’s a bore
So quit my whining cause
it’s bringing her down

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I’m cracking up
Am I just paranoid?
Uh, yuh, yuh, ya

Grasping to control
So I better hold on

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I’m cracking up
Am I just paranoid?
Or I’m just stoned

Do you have the time to listen to me whine about nothing and everything all at once? I’m in need of a listening ear…

Shallow

So. Someone just sorta said I’m a shallow person. Although she didn’t actually said it, she implied it. And I guess that hurts more than anything. I don’t mind if no one likes me for me. I don’t mind if people say I’m not their type. Heck. I don’t even care that much when people say they’re not interested. And I’m kind of resigned when people say we’re just better off as friends.

But when people say I’m shallow just because their friends are… Well. Ouch. Thanks.

Hungry

I’m actually very hungry now. I just woke up not long ago and wham. Hit by hunger pangs. I then realised I haven’t eaten anything since last afternoon. Didn’t have last night’s dinner and today’s breakfast and lunch. Just made myself some instant noodles and man… it smells heavenly.

Maybe that’s how it is with relationships now. I’d fall for almost anyone who’d treat me good. After some dry months where there’s no one hugging me and all, I’d definitely fall in love with a girl who’d hug me right? Maybe that’s just it? Maybe I’m just looking for someone to fill her gap.

But what if that isn’t it? What if I really want to start afresh with someone? Is it a very big request? I want to move on. I do. I know it hurts to move on. And from where I am now, it hurts even more to remain where I am. I’ve been stuck in this position for 2 years now. I want to move on. But fuck it. No one’s interested in giving me a chance. Someone said I was too shy or something like that. And someone else just said she’s just not interested.

So… How do I move on? How do I move on when each time I’m blue, there’s no one around to make me smile? Sure there are tons of people that do manage to make me smile on the outside. But on the inside? It’s so easy to talk about things. I remember Jem telling me that things will get better, etc. Of course for him it’s easy. He likes her and she sort of likes him too. What’s so hard about that?

But for my case…? Ah fuck. I don’t want to talk about it anymore.

All I can say is so what if there’s sunshine and rainbow after the rain? I still end up tripping and falling down in a puddle of mud and no amount of sunshine and rainbow can make me feel better.
