[Rediscovering Music] When I Look at You

The Last Song, Original Soundtrack, coverWhen Miley Cyrus‘s When I Look at You, from The Last Song soundtrack album played, I was like, “This kinda reminds you a better epoch in The Evolution of a Miley Cyrus.”

At the time, I probably picked this album up for this song. Of course, I do like the last track, Ronnie, but that’s besides the point.

Everybody needs inspiration
Everybody needs a song
A beautiful melody
When the nights are long

’cause there is no guarantee
That this life is easy

Yeah when my world is falling apart
When there’s no light
To break up the dark
That’s when I, I
I look at you

When the waves are flooding the shore
And I can’t find my way home any more
That’s when I, I
I look at you

When I look at you
I see forgiveness
I see the truth
You love me for who I am
Like the stars hold the moon
Right there where they belong
And I know I’m not alone

Yeah when my world is falling apart
When there’s no light
To break up the dark
That’s when I, I
I look at you

When the waves are flooding the shore
And I can’t find my way home any more
That’s when I, I
I look at you

You appear just like a dream to me
Just like kaleidoscope colors that cover me
All I need
Every breath that I breathe
Don’t you know you’re beautiful
Yeah yeah

When the waves are flooding the shore
And I can’t find my way home any more
That’s when I, I
I look at you

I look at you
You appear just like a dream to me

I haven’t been looking her up like I never did before but I’m totally curious about Liam Hemsworth right now.

[Rediscovering Music] Today My Life Begins

Bruno Mars, Today My Life Begins, coverToday I put my entire library in shuffle. And there’s beauty in it. It gives some old music, which has somehow been buried in all the new ones, a chance to play again and gives you the chance to hear old songs that had once inspired you. And, now that you’ve found them again, you know they will continue to inspire you.

Today’s find: Bruno Mars‘s Today My Life Begins. It’s just an excellent song for so many reasons. I just wish Bruno Mars could have gone this way, though.

Anyway, the words to the song:

I’ve been working hard so long
Seems like pain has been my only friend
My fragile heart’s been done so wrong
I wondered if I’d ever heal again

Oh just like all the seasons never stay the same
All around me I can feel a change (oh)

I will break these chains that bind me, happiness will find me
Leave the past behind me, today my life begins
A whole new world is waiting its mine for the taking
I know I can make it today my life begins

Yesterday has come and gone
And I’ve learn how to leave it where it is
And I see that I was wrong
For ever doubting I could win

Oh just like all the seasons never stay the same
All around me I can feel a change (oh)

I will break these chains that bind me happiness will find me
Leave that past behind me today my life begins
A whole new world is waiting its mine for the taking
I know I can make it today my life begins

Life’s too short to have regrets
So I’m learning now to leave it in the past and try to forget
Only have one life to live
So you better make the best of it

I will break these chains that bind me happiness will find me
Leave the past behind me today my life begins
A whole new world is waiting its mine for the taking
I know I can make it today my life begins

I will break these chains that bind me happiness will find me
Leave the past behind me today my life begins
A whole new world is waiting its mine for the taking
I know I can make it today my life begins

New Album: The Truth About Love

It’s P!nk‘s The Truth About Love.

P!nk, The Truth About Love, cover

I admit, the album was released over a year ago already. So, it’s not very new. But, it’s new to my library so, it new!

I kinda got the wrong album, though. I wanted the one with F*ng Perfect in it but this isn’t the one, apparently. I was in a hurry, so…

Can’t say I hate it, though. Mistake wasn’t so huge. I like it. After all, it didn’t get positive reviews and so many accolades for nothing. So, it’s still a good one.

I really, really, really liked Try and wanted to get it so, I guess, I’m still good.

Oh oh

Ever wonder about what he’s doing?
How it all turned to lies?
Sometimes I think that it’s better to never ask why

Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try

Eh, eh, eh

Funny how the heart can be deceiving
More than just a couple times
Why do we fall in love so easy?
Even when it’s not right

Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try

Ever worry that it might be ruined
And does it make you wanna cry?
When you’re out there doing what you’re doing
Are you just getting by?
Tell me are you just getting by, by, by?

Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone’s bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn’t mean you’re gonna die
You’ve gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try
You gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try

You gotta get up and try, and try, and try
Gotta get up and try, and try, and try

What’s not to like, right?

I must say this, though. After listening to some tracks, I feel like I will have to remove this album from my library. I’m just… A bit sensitive about language.

Drop me a line if you want it and I’ll point you to the right place.

Rediscovering Music: These Simple Truths

Sidewalk Prophets, These Simple Truths, cover artThese Simple Truths is a Christian music album by Sidewalk Prophets released in 2010.

This album I’ve had in my library for quite a bit now but it feels like I’m hearing so many of the tracks for the first time and they are beautiful.

My current favorite: Moving All the While.

In the morning as I wake
I pray my eyes do see
On this narrow road I walk
You have made a path for me

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
You were moving all the while

In sickness and in doubt
All questions that may raise
You claimed victory on the cross
And You filled my lungs with praise

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
You were moving all the while

On a dark and silent night
Above Your beauty shines
And Your peace shall fill the Earth
By Your love we are refined

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
You were moving all the while

And through all the bitter storms
Whatever comes our way
You will guide this vessel home
To live for all my days

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
You were moving all the while

Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
You were moving all the while
You were moving all the while

Can you be my nightingale?

#NowPlaying @ddlovato ‘s Nightingale from Demi

Got three new albums tonight:
Demi Lovato, Demi

Taylor Swift, Red [Deluxe Edition]

Owl City, The Midsummer Station

I know they’re not very new but I only just got them.

I got Demi for Made in the USA. I didn’t feel like getting it before I heard that one but now I’m really glad I did because I am absolutely loving Demi Lovato’s Nightingale. The song feels like it comes straight out of a great movie soundtrack.

I should say this though: Never Been Hurt is practically Unbroken written using a different set of words.

Red I got because of I Knew You Were Trouble. It’s pretty dark especially for a Taylor Swift song but I love how the beat hints on some song that should get you up but once the words start getting sung, you realize it’s tragic. I wouldn’t have gotten this one if it weren’t for that track.

Stay Stay Stay is so damn cute.

Of course, there’s no question why I got The Midsummer Station. It’s Owl City. It’s a given I’m gonna get it.

Here’s Nightingale:

I can’t sleep tonight
Wide awake and so confused
Everything’s in line
But I am bruised
I need a voice to echo
I need a light to take me home
I kinda need a hero
Is it you?

I never see the forest for the trees
I could really use your melody
Baby I’m a little blind
I think it’s time for you to find me

Can you be my nightingale?
Sing to me
I know you’re there
You could be my sanity
Bring me peace
Sing me to sleep
Say you’ll be my nightingale

Somebody speak to me
Cause I’m feeling like hell
Need you to answer me
I’m overwhelmed
I need a voice to echo
I need a light to take me home
I need a star to follow
I don’t know

I never see the forest for the trees
I could really use your melody
Baby I’m a little blind
I think it’s time for you to find me

Can you be my nightingale?
Sing to me
I know you’re there
You could be my sanity
Bring me peace
Sing me to sleep
Say you’ll be my nightingale

I don’t know what I’d do without you
Your words are like a whisper come through
As long as you are with me here tonight
I’m good

Can you be my nightingale?
Still so close
I know you’re there
Oh, nightingale
You sing to me
I know you’re there
‘Cause baby you’re my sanity
You bring me peace
Sing me to sleep
Say you’ll be my nightingale
