Repeat play: Hazy

So things have been going through my head lately…

And it’s all that I can hear, It’s more than I can bear

What if I fall and hurt myself?
Would You know how to fix me
What if I went and lost myself?
Would You know where to find me
If I forgot who I am,
Would You please remind me, oh
Cause without You things go hazy

Hazy by Rosi Golan feat William Fitzsimmons

Song of the day: Lost and Found

Chanced upon an episode—GASP! I actually watched TV on TV!—of Flashpoint today with my mom and brother. Like other times I’ve chanced upon Flashpoint, the one I caught today was a pretty good episode from last year; I want to grab a copy of the whole series now. Haha!

Like most TV series I like, Flashpoint has a good song selection for the final montages. Today’s episode has Lost and Found by Kim Taylor. Which is love.

Lost and Found
Kim Taylor

I’ve been lost and I’ve found
That when you get lost, you don’t look down
But you look above, yeah you look ahead
And you raise your hands to the sky instead
To the sky instead
When you run, when you try to hide
Stop and shake the dust from inside
And hold yourself like a little child
And swing your legs from the front porch swing for a little while
For a little while
You don’t know who will want to talk
Or who you’ll meet between now and then or where your feet will walk
But you look above, yeah you look ahead
And you raise your hands to the sky instead
To the sky instead

On repeat play: Do You Realize?? – The Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips - Do You Realize??I never liked double question marks— if repetition was necessary, I’d prefer three question marks instead of two, since three is a magic number—but there it is in the title of one of my favorite songs.

I listened to this a lot when I was in college. I distinctly remember one time I was studying for an Economics exam and I listened to this track, and only this track, over and over and over for hours.

This is today’s repeat play song, because I unearthed it in my library when I heard it on I Love You, Too. Which is a cute movie, by the way. When I blipped it, I discovered this beautiful piano cover.

Lyrics after the break. Continue reading

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

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.

I Can Wait

Performed by Nikki Blonsky
Hairspray 2007 OST

On my own,
There’s no chaperone
But my heart still is mine
For the keeping
Tracy, take a rest
You can pass this test
You can still dream your dream while you’re sleeping

If I can just stay true to the steps I’ve taken
It will all come through,
If it’s fate, let it be
Cause now I see, I Can Wait

Change takes time
It’s a long, hard climb
But I’ll get to the top if I’m steady

And where love’s concerned,
well, I guess I’ve learned
Just to trust he’ll be here
When he’s ready

If I can just stay true
to the steps I’ve taken
It will all come through
I’ll let fate, set the date
It’s okay I Can Wait

Plant the tiniest seed down below
Tend it well,
Then stand back and just watch it grow
Watch me grow

If I can just stay true
to the steps I have taken
It will all come through
Name the date and say when
But ’till then, I Can Wait

Everything

You’re a falling star, You’re the get away car.
You’re the line in the sand when I go too far.
You’re the swimming pool, on an August day.
And You’re the perfect thing to say.

And you play your card, but it’s kinda cute.
Ah, When you smile at me you know exactly what you do.
Baby don’t pretend, that you don’t know it’s true.
Cause you can see it when I look at you.

And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It’s you, it’s you, You make me sing.
You’re every line, you’re every word, you’re everything.

You’re a carousel, you’re a wishing well,
And you light me up, when you ring my bell.
You’re a mystery, you’re from outer space,
You’re every minute of my everyday.

And I can’t believe, uh that I’m your man,
And I get to kiss you baby just because I can.
Whatever comes our way, ah we’ll see it through,
And you know that’s what our love can do.

And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It’s you, it’s you, You make me sing
You’re every line, you’re every word, you’re everything.

So, La, La, La, La, La, La, La
So, La, La, La, La, La, La, La

And in this crazy life, and through these crazy times
It’s you, it’s you, You make me sing.
You’re every line, you’re every word, you’re everything.
You’re every song, and I sing along.
Cause you’re my everything.
Yeah, yeah

So, La, La, La, La, La, La, La
So, La, La, La, La, La, La, La

Everything by Michael Buble

It Don’t Matter to the Sun

It don’t matter to the sun
If you go or if you stay
No, the sun is gonna rise, gonna rise
Shine down on another day
There will be tomorrow
Even if you choose to leave
Cuz it don’t matter to the sun no, no
It matters to me

It ain’t gonna stop the world
If you walk out that door
This old world just keeps spinning round, spinning round
Like it did the day before
Cuz to them it makes no difference
It just keeps on keeping time
Cuz it ain’t gonna stop the world no
But it’ll be the end of mine

So what can I say?
What can I do?
I’m still in love.
Why aren’t you?

Cuz it don’t matter to the moon
If your not in my life
No the moon will just keep hanging round, hanging round
Like its just another night
Who find another place to shine
On some other lovers dreams
Cuz it don’t matter to the moon no, no
It matters to me

Cuz it don’t matter to the moon no, no
But it matters to me
