Afraid for Love to Fade - Leah Salonga

This is a song I thought an original of Jose Marie Chan. Nevertheless, i love the song. I sang this with my sister and it made us just fall in love all over again.  It is a nice videoke piece I think. And she can't disagree!

Just reminiscing. Try to search it in youtube. Enjoy!

Lea Salonga
Afraid For Love To Fade lyrics

My head's in a jam
Can't take you off my mind
From the time we met
I've been beset by thoughts of you
And the more that I ignore this feeling
The more I find myself believing
That I just have to see you again

I can't let you pass me by
I just can't let you go
But I know that I am much too shy
To let you know
Afraid that I might say the wrong words
And displease you
Afraid for love to fade
Before it can come true

Like a child again
I'm at a loss for words
How does one define
A crush combined with longing?
Longing to possess you oh so dearly
I'm obsessed by you completely
I'll go mad if I can't have you

I can't let you pass me by
I just can't let you go
But I know that I am much too shy
To let you know
Afraid that I might say the wrong words
And displease you
Afraid for love to fade
Before it can come true

(instrumental)

I can't let you pass me by
I just can't let you go
Let me say the things and say the words
To let you know
I would rather say the awkward words
Than lose you
Or for love to fade
Before it can come true

I Wanna Grow Old With You - Westlife

Here is a love song I heard just recently.  This is about commitment, growing old with a loved one.

I always believed that relationships involve investment - in time, effort, feelings including future.  I just want to delve into that thinking for now.  It is always nice to look forward but what if something happens along the way?  At least we got today - which we call the PRESENT - so let's grasp it while we still have the feeling.

I WANNA GROW OLD WITH YOU.

Another day 
Without your smile 
Another day just passes by 
But now I know 
How much it means 
For you to stay 
Right here with me 

The time we spent apart will make our love grow stronger 
But it hurt so bad I can't take it any longer 

I wanna grow old with you 
I wanna die lying in your arms 
I wanna grow old with you 
I wanna be looking in your eyes 
I wanna be there for you 
Sharing everything you do 
I wanna grow old with you 

A thousand miles between us now 
It causes me to wonder how 
Our love tonight remains so strong 
It makes our risk right all along 

The time we spent apart will make our love grow stronger 
But it hurt so bad I can't take it any longer 

I wanna grow old with you 
I wanna die lying in your arms 
I wanna grow old with you 
I wanna be looking in your eyes 
I wanna be there for you 
Sharing everything you do 
I wanna grow old with you 

Things can come and go I know but 
Baby I believe 
Something's burning strong between us 
Makes it clear to me 

I wanna grow old with you 
I wanna die lying in your arms 
I wanna grow old with you 
I wanna be looking in your eyes 
I wanna be there for you 
Sharing everything you do 
I wanna grow old with you

Shadow Dance - Poem Again


Sharing a poem from a friend.

SHADOW DANCE

I looked at you, long and deep
Wishing you'd rise from your sleep.
I gently held your soft hand
Needing you beside me to stand.

To the sound of our song, I asked
"May I please have this dance?"
You stood instantly without hesitation
So glad you heeded my invitation.

Feeling your body so close to me
Our slow dance calmed all my anxiety
For you know dancing isn't easy
More so asking to dance with my baby.

We danced in the darkness of night
Nothing around, no one in sight.
Just you and me on the dance floor
but still feeling sheepish after all.

I love our shadow as we danced
Thank you for this wonderful chance
To feel you close to me
To feel your heartbeat one with me.

We danced the evening away
No one else but our shadow in unity
This is for the love we share alone
but not for the world to know.

We had our shadow dance in the darkness
Like the love we have to hold in secret.
Nothing else to ask for once you're mine
And perhaps forever we'd dance, in time.

You Owe Me Nothing In Return - Alanis Morissette


I have missed Alanis Morissette and when I thought I have heard all of her songs before, this one came up.  This is a song introduced to me by a special friend who is living true to its meaning.

This song has been running through my mind, over and over, while my thoughts wonder around.  My mind is pre-occupied with the memories I had with this special person.  I have been so happy except for the thought that we cannot be really together because we have our own respective commitments.  We just share special feelings that lighten our daily existence... I am running out of words that the song lyrics is all that I can think of.

So here we are, an Alanis unique-kinda-music.

Enjoy it as I am loving it.

YOU OWE ME NOTHING IN RETURN Lyrics

I'll give you countless amounts 
of out right acceptance if you want it. 
I'll give you encouragement to choose 
the path that you want if you need it.

You can speak of anger and doubts
Your fears and freak-outs and I'll hold it.
You can share your so-called shame filled accounts 
of times in your life and I won't judge it.

(And there are no strings attached)
You owe me nothing for giving the love that I give. 
You owe me nothing for caring the way that I have.
I give you thanks for receiving, it's my privilege
And you owe me nothing in return. 

You can ask for space for yourself 
And only yourself and I'll grant it.
You can ask for freedom as well
Or time to travel and you'll have it.

You can ask to live by yourself
Or love someone else and I'll support it.
You can ask for anything you want 
Anything at all and I'll understand it.

I bet you're wonderin' when
The next payback shoe will eventually drop.
I bet you're wonderin' when my conditional police will force you to cough up.
I bet you're wonderin' how far you have now danced your way back into dead.
This is the only kind of love as I understand it that there really is.

You can express your deepest of truths
Even if it means I'll lose you and I'll hear it.
You can fall into the abyss
On the way to your bliss, I'll empathize with.
You can say that you'll have to skip town
To chase your passion and I'll hear it.
You can even hit rock bottom, have a mid-life crisis and I'll hold it

(And there are no strings attached)
You owe me nothing for giving the love that I give. 
You owe me nothing for caring the way that I have.
I give you thanks for receiving, it's my privilege
And you owe me nothing in return.

Loving so strong - POEM

Poem Collection

My fantasies came true the moment you said "i love you"
I feel the same and wish I'm your dream too.
I'll always love you by heart, as sure as heaven is above.
I'll keep you close though apart; hug me tighter than the start.

Your smiling face that hides the sadness of your heart
is the same face that keeps circling in my head every night
i admire your pretty eyes that reads through my mind
your eyes that close when your lips touch mine

Your voice is the song that inspires my sleepy mind
your smile is the scene that my heart vivified
your touch that flows through my skin gets nerves electrified
your kiss is my treasure that love protected inside.

The wind blows and directs my sight to where you are
the sun gives light for me to see your beauty from afar
the darkness of night draws me near and hug you tight
they witness and stand the love we have which feels so right.


You're the one I adore and I fall for you even more.
Wish I had met you before and would love forevermore.
I fell for you in a song; I enjoy this feeling so strong.
How can this be wrong when to me you belong?

New York Rio Tokyo - Trio Rio

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kia Rio for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have always admired Kia Cars. Not only that I used to work with the company, until I decided to work for community development and leave the corporate world.  I was able to entice my friend to buy a Kia Rio for herself and she did.  It was such a nice car. I know, I didn't fail her when I encouraged her to buy that car.
 
Now come another Rio - the Kio Rio Scavenger Hunt which can be viewed through this link: Rio Explorer Page
 One can't help but admire this new vehicle that has Bluetooth, USB jack, navigation, rear camera display among others.  Of course I would love to have a USB jack on my car for my gadgets on the go and that rear camera display so that there would be no hasle backing up the car.  Check this one out UVO Technology that further details this new Kia technology.
 
Imagine the comfort of getting to your pelasure place. Imagine getting there the most adventurous and comfortable way because you are inside a maginificent vehicle.  Here is what others say about the car. Please watch this vidoe
 
And did I mention about the Zip and Dash to Los Angeles geocache challenge in the 2012 Kia Rio 5-door?  Would you take on the challenge throughout L.A. to meet your favorite superstar? Who would it be?  If you and one friend could Zip and Dash anywhere where would it be? 
 
Here are the 5 locations that contestants could visit:
1.  The Griffith Park Merry-Go-Round which is a histoic landmark in LA that has been running since 1937, and is a place where Walt Disner brought his children before building Disneyland.
2. Amoeba Records which is one of the most popular historic music stores in Los Angeles.  Visitors can find rare vinyl, CDs, tapes and music memorabilia, and even catch a live show.
3.  Rodeo Drive which is one of the most expensive and swanky shopping destinations in Beverly Hills.
4.  Pink's Hot Dogs which is an LA favorite serving hot dogs named after Hollywood celebrities.
5. The Roosevel Hotel which is a Smack dab in the middle of Hollywood Blvd and home to both history and the best parties in LA.
 
The most difficult challenge for me would be the Rodeo Drive because for sure, my eyes will get tired looking around not only for celebrities but most especially for the clothes! It may be tiring but I'm pretty sure, it is exciting. So let's go!
 
Visit the Kia website for more details.
 
Enjoy my friends!
 
Here is the lyrics of the song feature for the day. Have a more enjoyable weekend for now!
 
In New York - Rio - Tokyo

You feel that dancing fantasy.
In New York - Rio - Tokyo

Or any other place around
That magical big city sound.

Now let's come together

that our love is here to stay.

When I watch you dancing
I begin to feel like all romancing

Groovin'
movin'
shakin'

All the time you hear
That sound of dancing.

In New York - Rio - Tokyo
...

When you dance close to me

When I dance close to you

When we are together then you'll say
That our love is here to stay.

Secret - Heart


Again, I would say, it's been a while since I haven't posted an entry here.

We were on a rigid training in our company and the only time I have on the internet
is when we take our lunch. Of course, I eat first then, hurriedly peek on my blog.

Here is a new song for me. A friend of mine shared this with me.  Although this is a Heart song,
I admit, I am not really familiar with it except that I have heard it before without understanding the lyrics.
In fact, I don't think I gave the lyrics some attention.

So she gave me the lyrics and been kind enough to share with me her mp3 file.  So here is my entry for the day.

It's a nice song, I should say, because it talks about unconditional love, I guess.  I cannot discredit Heart's soul -
the style in his singing is very unique.  That is remarkable.

Well, she said they give tips to the band who could sing this song live.
It made me laugh because although I enter Bar houses with live bands singing, I haven't really tried giving tips. ;-)
Next time, I will. so that is her story ;-)

Now here is the lyrics. Enjoy!

SECRET - HEART

We lead two different lives
Just like two lines that never cross
And here we are together
Standing closer than we are
But we're still standing here untouched
Too scared to make a move

We want so much to touch
And we can't wait forever
Ae know it's dangerous
For us to be together

How do we ever keep this sectet
How do we keep it in the dark
And if we dare to taste our weakness
How could we tear ourselved apart
How do we keep this love together
Didn't we know right from the start
That we would have to keep this secret
Or forever stay apart

I watch you coming to me
Walkin' in the pouring rain
I can't help looking at you
Wishin' i could stay away
So many times i've tried in vain
To close my eyes and pray

It goes away but I can't stop myself from feeling
To let you go would be too much for me to take

I can't help thinking'
When I look into your eyes
How much I need you
It's so hard to hide

Lucky - Jason Mraz

Been a while since I haven't posted here. Been a while since I haven't heard this song and when I came across a poem about falling in love with your best friend, I instantly remembered this song.

Sharing with you the poem that I read:

SO BEAUTIFUL... SO TRUE... SO YOU.

At night when I close my eyes
my mind is so fixed to just one sight.
As hard as I can, I try to brush it aside,
but how can I when it makes me smile?

I smile while I lie in bed.
I smile 'coz I see your face in my head.
My mind wanders but hear your laughter instead.
it's a laughter that we have shared.

A lot of times I say you're beautiful;
most of the time I sound like a fool.
You think I am just being playful
and so the more it makes you beautiful.

You gave me a new meaning for beauty,
that no dictionary, music, arts nor works literary
have ever taught its definition for me.
i look at you then beauty is everything I see.

It's not hard to fall in love with you;
How it is when you're too good and so true?
No way shall I hold this feeling for you;
for it's life to be able to honestly say I love you.

I love you more than a friend;
I admit falling for my best friend.
But friends as we are should remain
and we'll be side by side 'til the end.


LYRICS OF THE SONG
LUCKY

Do you hear me? I'm talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky,
Oh my, baby I'm trying

Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Ooh ooh ooh

They don't know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I'll wait for you I promise you, I will

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again

Lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I'm sailing through the sea
To an island where we'll meet
You'll hear the music fill the air
I'll put a flower in your hair

Though the breezes through trees
Move so pretty you're all I see
As the world keeps spinning 'round
You hold me right here, right now

I'm lucky I'm in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again

I'm lucky we're in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh, ooh

Millennium - Robbie Williams

If you are a Philosophy major back in college, you might have read that book by Jostein Gaarder, "Sophie's World". This song reminds me of that novel. Believe it or not, it is a novel despite the philosophical terminologies posited therein.

For me, this book serves as the bible of Philosophy majors due to the fact that majority of philosophical tenets were discussed there, including an indepth definition of terminologies. The start of this song says, "Some say that we are players, some say that we are pawn." It means sometimes, we create our own fate, our destiny. Sometimes it is undeniable that our fate is authored by somebody else, especially when things come up not in consonance with what we expect them to be. It is like our lives have been written to be as they are, then we are mere pawns. We surrender to the wisdom of some divine powers around us, thus we are pawns.

 Pawn is a chess piece, right? If you play chess, you would know what that means. And this song likewise reminds me of that "millennium bug" where everyone got so frightened as to the digitized effect of the year 2000 unto the financial/banking matters around the world. all right, now time to appreciate this song from Robbie Williams.

Sophie's World is also a story where the main character, Sophie, and her mentor Albert (I think was his name) were caught in the end realizing that they are just a part of a big picture. It's like they were being toyed of. It's like Plato's philosophy claiming that this is the world of matter and still, there is another world of form.  In the latter, there is peace, beauty, simplicity and paradise.  If you got time, try to grab a copy of that book. For now, enjoy the lyrics.
Lyrics of the song Millennium
by Robbie Williams
 Some say that we are players
some say that we are pawns
but we've been making money
since the day that we were born

Got to slow down, cause we'll low down.
 Round and round in circles live a life of solitude
'till we find ourselves a partner someone to relate to
Then we slow down, before we fall down.
We've got stars directing our fate
and we're praying it's not too late
'cause we know we're falling from grace
Millennium

Live for liposuction detax for your 'rents
overdose for Christmas and give it up for Lent
My friends are all so cynical refuse to keep the faith
We all enjoy the madness 'cause we know we're gonna fade away.

We've got stars directing our fate and we're praying it's not too late 'cause we know we're falling from grace Millennium Come and have a go if you think you are hard enough Come and have a go if you think you are hard enough Millennium Millennium

 We've got stars directing our fate and we're praying it's not too late 'cause we know we're falling from grace Millennium (Sometimes you know) And when we come we always come too late

I often think that we were born to hate get up and see the sarcasm in my eyes.
And when we come we always come too late I often think that we were born to hate get up
and see the sarcasm in my eyes.

We've got stars directing our fate (Millennium)
and we're praying it's not too late(Millennium)
'cause we know we're falling from grace(Millennium)
 (And we won't stop)
 We've got stars directing our fate and we're praying it's not too late
'cause we know we're falling from grace Millennium (fades)

Below is the lyrics of the song by Tom Jones
 
The old home town looks the same as I step down from the train,
and there to meet me is my Mama and Papa.
 
Down the road I look and there runs
Mary hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
 
Yes, they'll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
It's good to touch the green, green, grass of home.
 
The old house is still standing, tho' the paint is cracked and dry,
and there's that old oak tree that I used to play on.
 
Down the lane I walk with my sweet Mary, hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
 
Yes, they'll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
 
[spoken:]
 
Then I awake and look around me, at the four grey walls that surround me
and I realize, yes, I was only dreaming.
For there's a guard and there's a sad old padre -
arm in arm we'll walk at daybreak.
Again I touch the green, green grass of home.
Yes, they'll all come to see me in the shade of that old oak tree
as they lay me neath the green, green grass of home.

Heart of Worship - Hillsong

There are a lot of reasons why I love music.  One of them is to WORSHIP.  There is never a day that I do not listen to a worship song may it be by our local artist like Bukas Palad Music Ministry, Gary Valenciano or the likes of Sandy Patti, Don Moen, Hillsong, Maranattha, etc.

My life is never complete without music and it is fulfilled if I am able to express my heart out by singing worship songs.  My religious support group or the community very close to my heart always reminds me that  indeed "singing is the highest form of worship" and I believe that.

In the morning and out of 700+ worship songs installed in my ipod and this song plays, it calms my heart.  I love the voice of the male artist who sang this worship song. I also love the lyrics of the song especially when it says... I'm coming back to the heart of worship...

It reminds me that Christian life has its ups and downs.  It is an everyday struggle and when you feel that life has gone dry, I believe it is because we have gone away from the path that God wants us to take.  Then I go back... I try to go back even if I will have to crawl. I will have to go back... back to the HEART OF WORSHIP.

Read on for the lyrics of the song.


Heart of Worship (When the music fades) lyrics

Matt Redman

Lyrics:
Verse 1
When the music fades
All is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring
Something that's of worth
That will bless your heart

Bridge
I'll bring You more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what You have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You're looking into my heart

Chorus
I'm coming back to the heart of worship
And it's all about You
It's all about You, Jesus
I'm sorry, Lord, for the thing I've made it
When it's all about You
It's all about You, Jesus

Verse 2
King of endless worth
No one could express
How much you deserve
Though I'm weak and poor
All I have is yours
Every single breath

*Bridge*
*Chorus*
*Chorus*

I'll bring you more than a song
I'll bring you more than a song
More than a song
I'll bring you more than a song
I'll bring you more than a song
You're looking into my heart
Looking into my heart
You're looking into my heart
Into my heart
I'll bring you more than a song
I'll bring you more than a song
I'll bring you more than a song
I'll bring you more than a song

Angels - David Archuleta

I believe I have always an angel beside me. Wherever I go, wherever I look, there will always be an angel protecting me.


I remember this one incident when I was in a very strange place. My thoughts were lost, I know my body is giving up for all my travels and troubles.  My mind was empty, my feet could hardly walk but I had to keep on walking. I had to keep on moving and I had to walk around an entire 3-hectare field. I did that first to look for the church entrance and secondly, to get rid of people.


The church gates were unfortunately closed for incoming pedestrians as the mass had just finished.  I just did not have the luxury of time to wait for the next mass schedule for that Sunday.  I walked on then realizing that I was towards the flock of people and media people whom I was really trying to avoid.


I just walked on.  To my surprise, there I saw a handsome face, a familiar one.  He shook hands with me and noticing that I was a bit haggard and tired so very early in the morning, he handed me a bag full of goodies, including medicines. 


When I thought I was lost in the wilderness, seeing a familiar face made me the feeling that I was at home - home sweet home.  When physically challenging tasks consumed me, God even provided me with food that nourishes my body! My protective angels all are all over. They are also providers.



I sit and wait
Does an angel contemplate my fate?
And do they know the places where we go
When we're gray and old?

'Cause I've been told
That salvation lets their wings unfold
So when I'm lying in my bed
Thoughts running through my head
And I feel that love is dead
I'm loving angels instead

And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection, whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call she won't forsake me
I'm loving angels instead

When I'm feeling weak
And my pain walks down a one way street
I look above
And I know I'll always be blessed with love, oh

And as the feeling grows
She breathes flesh to my bones
And I feel that love is dead
I'm loving angels instead

And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection, whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call she won't forsake me
I'm loving angels instead

Through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call she won't forsake me
I'm loving angels instead, oh
I'm loving angels instead

Everybody Has A Dream - Billy Joel

This song was interpreted by American Idol contestant Jessica Sanchez. Since that night I watched the episode, I can't get it out my head. I have been a fan of Billy Joel and to be honest, I am not familiar with this particular song, more so when Jessica sang it. I was talking to a friend a while ago and we were catching up.

I told her, I believe I landed in my dream job already where I can help organizing the community which is how I was taught back in college. This is my passion. Other than that, I can still function as a teacher by becoming a lecturer at some community gatherings. And then I heard this song and it says everybody has a dream. I had a dream and now I am living that dream.

Everybody has a Dream
Billy Joel / Jessica Sanchez (American Idol 11)

While in these days of quiet desperation
As I wander through the world in which I live
I search everywhere for some new inspiration
But it's more than cold reality can give
If I need a cause for celebration
Or a comfort I can use to ease my mind
I rely on my imagination
And I dream of an imaginary time

Oh oh, and I know that everybody has a dream
Everybody has a dream, everybody has a dream
And this is my dream, my own
Just to be at home and to be all alone with you

If I believe in all the words I'm saying
And if a word from you can bring a better day
Then all I have are these games that I've been playing
To keep my hope from crumbling away
So let me lie and let me go on sleeping
And I will lose myself in palaces of sand
And all the fantasies that I will be keeping
Will make the empty hours easier, easier to stand

And I know that everybody has a dream
Everybody has a dream, everybody has a dream
And this is my dream, my own, just to be at home
And to be all alone, all alone with you
Oh, oh, with you

I know that everybody has a dream, oh oh, everybody has a dream
I know that everybody has a dream, everybody
(Everybody has a dream) Everybody, everybody, everybody has
(Everybody has a dream) Everybody has a dream, I know that
(Everybody has a dream) Everybody
(Everybody has a dream) Everybody has a dream
(Everybody has a dream) Everybody has a dream, everybody has
(Everybody has a dream)

If You Asked Me To - Celine Dion / Angeline Quinto & Eric Santos

Another Celine Dion song for you today... this month of LOVE!
I have always loved Celine Dion songs and as much as I want to sing like her, that will remain a goal for now. I am working on it, ok? (LOL)  Here are my previous posts:
Water From the Moon
My Heart Will Go On

I just saw the movie trailer of ABS-CBN's Unofficially yours from youtube.  It's such an interesting movie, I think I want to see it when it's shown here in the province.



I fell like talking about love again. It's the "love fever" you know!

I was once in a situation that love is in-existent. I didn't know what it meant and how to define it. I still cannot defined it til now but I already have an experience of it.  I didn't know how to give importance to a person. I didn't know it would matter if I do some favor for them or not. It wouldn't really matter to me if I fail to talk to them or at least how they feel.

I thought love has to be confined with one person and I haven't found that person yet.  When I did, well, my world revolved around them. Everything was towards that person. I gave everything to that person to the neglect of the most special people in my life - my family!

That was the past. Now, my world is my family with a bonus and I don't think there's more I'd ask for when it comes to my love, my inspiration, my life.

Enjoy the lyrics and the video.


IF YOU ASKED ME TO

Used to be that I believed in something
Used to be that I believed in love
It's been a long time since I've had that feeling
I could love someone
I could trust someone
I said I'd never let nobody near my heart again darlin'
I said I'd never let nobody in 

But if you asked me to
I just might change my mind
And let you in my life forever
If you asked me to
I just might give my heart
And stay here in your arms forever
If you asked me to
If you asked me to 

But if you asked me to
I just might change my mind
And let you in my life forever
If you asked me to
I just might give my heart
And stay here in your arms forever
If you asked me to
If you asked me to

Ask me to, I will give my world to you baby
I need you now
Ask me to and I'll do anything for you baby, for you baby

(But if you asked me to...) 

All ya gotta do
All ya gotta do
'Are 'You 'Gotta do, is ask me to
I'll give you my world
I'll give you my heart
My everything, everything baby.

Just ask me to 

If you asked me to
I'd change my mind
I'll change my mind
