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
