Tag: get up and fight

Ang lahat ng ito’y lilipas din.

This needs reposting today.

Pano kung wala ka nang makapitan? Kailangang magpatuloy.

Minsan, hindi na mapakali
At parang wala nang silbi sa umaga
Di lang ‘sang beses na tuliro
At parang walang katapusan mga gabi mo

Pano kung wala ka nang makapitan?…

Kailangang magpatuloy
Gumulong ka lang kaya
Wag magpatalo
Wag mag-alala
May pag-asa pa
Hangga’t ka’y humihinga
Ang lahat ng ito’s lilipas din

Pano kung wala ka nang makapitan?…

Kailangang magpatuloy
Gumulong ka lang kaya
Wag magpatalo
Wag mag-alala
May pag-asa pa
Hangga’t ka’y humihinga
Hangga’t may natitirang
bakas pa ng mga panaginip mo’t
pangarap na
hindi kailan pa man maaagaw sa iyo
Kumapit ka sa sarili mo
Maniwala ka
May pag-asa pa
Hangga’t ka’y humihinga
Ang lahat ng ito’y lilipas din

Kumapit Ka Tuwing Lunes

Now playing: You Are Young

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JddEezXWf8Y]

Fearful child have faith in brighter days
Stay home ’til this darkness fades away
Lie still beside me
I’ll hold you now, I’ll hold you forever

Winter’s hand will freeze your heart again
Doors will close, no time to start again
Nothing is given
Except the ties that hold us together

Lay down your load
Cause every day it’s gonna grow
And bask in the sunshine
Try to pay no mind
Try to pay no mind at all

To all the things that you don’t know
You’ve got time to realize you’re shielded by the hands of love
Cause you are young

Fading light may make a fool of me
Courage fails, strengths slip away from me
Lie still beside me
And hold me now, and hold me forever

Lay down your load
Cause every day it’s gonna grow
These days are sacred
Hey now, don’t be scared
Baby, don’t be scared at all

Of all the things that you don’t know
You’ve got time to realize you’re shielded by the hands of love
Cause you are young
You’ve got time, you’ve got to try
To bring some good into this world
Cause you are young
Cause you are young

Oh-oh-oh…

Cause you are young

Marching On

There are times when you look for a song that matches your mood, and you successfully locate it in your library.

There are also times when you don’t look for the song, but the song literally explodes out from your shuffled playlist and tells you, “I AM THE SONG FOR WHAT YOU’RE GOING THROUGH.”

This song is that song for my September 2, 2010, 11:12 AM.

Marching On
OneRepublic
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5EMUmZOW7U]

For those days we felt like a mistake,
Those times when love’s what you hate,
Somehow,
We keep marching on.

For those nights when I couldn’t be there,
I’ve made it harder to know that you know,
That somehow,
We’ll keep moving on.

There’s so many wars we fought,
There’s so many things we’re not,
But with what we have,
I promise you that,
We’re marching on,
(We’re marching on)
(We’re marching on).

For all of the plans we’ve made,
There isn’t a flag I’d wave,
Don’t care if we bend,
I’d sink us to swim,
We’re marching on,
(We’re marching on)
(We’re marching on).

For those doubts that swirl all around us,
For those lives that tear at the seams,
We know,
We’re not what we’ve seen,

For this dance we’ll move with each other.
There ain’t no other step than one foot,
Right in front of the other.

There’s so many wars we fought,
There’s so many things we’re not,
But with what we have,
I promise you that,
We’re marching on,
(We’re marching on)
(We’re marching on).

For all of the plans we’ve made,
There isn’t a flag I’d wave,
Don’t care if we bend,
I’d sink us to swim,
We’re marching on,
(We’re marching on)
(We’re marching on).

Right, right, right, right left right,
Right, right, right, right left right,
Right, right,
We’re marching on.

We’ll have the days we break,
And we’ll have the scars to prove it,
We’ll have the bonds that we save,
But we’ll have the heart not to lose it.

For all of the times we’ve stopped,
For all of the things I’m not.

We put one foot in front of the other,
We move like we ain’t got no other,
We go when we go,
We’re marching on.

There’s so many wars we fought,
There’s so many things we’re not,
But with what we have,
I promise you that,
We’re marching on,
(We’re marching on)
(We’re marching on).

Right, right, right, right left right,
Right, right, right, left, right,
Right, right,
We’re marching on.

Right, right, right, right left right,
Right, right, right, left, right,
Right, right,
We’re marching on.

When I’m Walking Next To You

[audio:http://sarahcada.com/music/Acres%20-%20Walking%20Next%20To%20You.mp3|titles=When I’m Walking Next To You|artists=Acres]

I first heard this song on Scrubs season 6. Beautiful, beautiful song that I’ve been using on my quiet time with God recently. *sigh*

When I’m Walking Next To You
by Acres

When I feel like I might fall
underneath the presure of it all
I think of You and it’s all right

When it’s dark beyond the door
and shadows trace my fears across the floor
I look at You and I see the light

All the inspiration that I need
is when I hear You calling out for me
And I will walk the only road that’s true
when I’m walking next to You

When I feel I’m doing this all wrong
and I jumble broken phrases in a song
You know how to speak through me

When I get tangled up in grief
and the remedies I take never offer up relief
I talk to You and I am free

All the inspiration to pull me through
is in the smallest hand I’ve ever held on to
And I will walk the only road that’s true
when I’m walking next to You

When I feel I can’t go on
and it seems a thousand years before the dawn
I reach for You and You keep me holding on

All the inspiration that I need
is when I hear You calling out for me
And I will walk the only road that’s true
when I’m walking next to You

Fun

Yesterday I was having PMS. Yeah, okay, maybe that was too much information, but whatever.

Anyway. I was having PMS. So, as I would do in times of frustration and/or exhaustion, I searched my library for music to dispel the negative vibes. (Okay, so I also search my library for fitting music for any other situation, but that’s beside the point.) Sadly, though, any song I played didn’t actually help. It only helped to block out outside noise, but none of the beloved music that I tried to listen to didn’t ease that irrational impatience and adrenaline girls get at that time of the month.

So, my day yesterday was crappy. I felt like nothing was going right and that everyone was out to destroy my day. Yes, even the boyfriend. I’ve only been my desk for less than 10 minutes and I was already wanting to throttle him.

This morning when I got to work, I was about to put Local Natives on to start my day with nice percs of Only Son. But, for some reason I pressed “F” instead of “L”. And there, listed under F was Fun. I clicked that. What played was “Be Calm”, the song that should have been my soundtrack for yesterday, and I cannot imagine why I didn’t remember to play it.

[audio:http://irondj.info/mix/file/708/01_-_Be_Calm.mp3] Be calm.
I know you feel like you are breaking down
I know that it gets so hard sometimes
Be calm

Oh, wow. The lyrics are perfect for moments when you’re near hysterical, right? It’s rock energy would have matched my frustration, and yet its slight pop-ness would have made me smile. The whole Aim and Ignite album is like that, actually, and I ended up listening to it on repeat play today. As if I was trying to make up for yesterday or something.

So, here I am, documenting this moment when I added an addition to my anti-PMS soundtrack. I hope I rememer this song (and album!) the next time I need an upper.

Kumapit Ka Tuwing Lunes

My new favorite song. I think I’m not the only one who occassionally feels down on Mondays. But this song speaks about holding on whenever you feel hopeless, whatever day it may be. Thus, as mentioned, this is my new favorite song for the moment. Peryodiko rocks.

Kumapit Ka Tuwing Lunes

Wag Ka Nang Umiyak

So several things have been happening in my life right now that are really pushing me to my knees (and to tears). They’re too many to share in one blog post, and I can’t share all of them quite yet because they’re a bit sensitive and they’re not yet done.

But then, this morning, I was praying and trying to listen to God, and then this song played in my head. At first, I tried to clear my mind again to focus on what God could be saying, but then the chorus played in my head again, and LOUDLY. I can’t really describe it. And then I realized that God was talking to me through this song.
Haaaaaay. My God loves me.

http://media.imeem.com/m/IQMfntJGR2/aus=false/

Wag ka nang umiyak, sa mundong pabago-bago
Pag-ibig ko ay totoo
Ako ang iyong bangka, kung nagalit man
Ang alon ng panahon, sabay tayong aahon

Kung wala ka nang maintindihan
Kung wala ka nang makapitan
Kapit ka sa akin, kapit ka sa akin
Di kita bibitawan

Wag ka nang umiyak, mahaba man ang araw
Uuwi ka sa yakap ko
Wag mo nang damdamin kung wala ako sa ‘yong tabi
Iiwan kong puso ko sa yo

At kung pakiramdam mo’y wala ka nang kakampi
Isipin mo ako dahil puso’t isip ko’y
Nasa ‘yong tabi

Kung wala ka nang maintindihan
Kung wala ka nang makapitan
Kapit ka sa akin, kapit ka sa akin
Di kita bibitawan

Kapit ka, kumapit ka

Kung wala ka nang maintindihan
Kung wala ka nang makapitan
Kapit ka sa akin, kapit ka sa akin
Di kita bibitawan
