Chances Are - Robert Downey Jr & Vonda Shepard

I will never forget the movie CHANCES ARE, also starred by Robert Downey, Jr. That was an old movie back in the 90s.  This song, however is another story.  It just talks about "who knows" as opposed to a planned life.

I have always planned my life because that's what I learned from my mentor.  Somewhere, however, I had to abandon some of those plans not because chances are, I may fail, but because something unplanned came up.  I do not regret planning my life, despite uncertainties of fate.  I just have too much to consider and plan for so I am living life as it comes right now.  But we cannot stay that way for long.  No matter what fate brings us, we still should be ready, to at least cope with our current situation.

I have committed myself to someone and what if that commitment doesn't seem to work out because of numerous humps and bumps along the way? Do we wait til timelines become aligned with the heart's desires? Then how long shall we wait? Ohh, who knows, ayt?


Lyrics of the song
CHANCES ARE
Robert Downey Jr & Vonda Shepard

Chances are you'll find me
somewhere on your road tonight
Seems I always end up driving by

Ever since I've known you
It just seems you're on my way
All the rules of logic don't apply

I long to see you in the night

Be with you 'till the morning light...

I remember clearly
how you looked the night we met
I recall your laughter and your smile

I remember how
you made me feel so at ease
I remember all your grace and style

And now you're all I long to see
you've come to mean so much to me...

Chances are I'll see you
somewhere in my dreams tonight
You'll be smiling like the night we met

Chances are I'll hold you
an I'll offer all I have
You're the only one I can't forget

Baby you're the best I've ever met...

And I'll be dreaming ot the future...

... hoping you'll be by my side.

And in the morning I'd be longing for the night
for the night...

Chances are I'll see you
somewhere in my dreams tonight
You'll be smiling like the night we met

Chances are I'll hold you
and I'll offer all I have
You're the only one I can't forget

Baby you're the best I've ever met...

Give Your Heart a Break - Demi Lovato

I heard this song this morning and it somehow reminded me of the very first song I blogged here long time ago.  It shivered me because I don't like the feeling.  That is a feeling of having a relationship but knowing that it is going to end sometime later.  

Who would want to experience a heartbreak? I don't.  But every day of breathing is a heartbreak because each moment, we will make a move that will either make us or break us.  Add that to investing so much of your time and effort, including feelings, just to lose that someone closest to our heart.

I really don't like talking about parting ways because it is like a bad omen to me.  However, whatever we do, things happen the way they are meant to be.  So let us give our hearts a break.  Let's pause and ponder that our heart was placed lower than our brain.  Who knows, we might realize that our so-called heartbreaks are just figment of our rational faculties.  Who knows.

"Give Your Heart A Break"

The day I first met you
You told me you'd never fall in love
But now that I get you
I know fear is what it really was

Now here we are,
So close yet so far.
Haven't I passed the test?
When will you realize,
Baby, I'm not like the rest?

Don't wanna break your heart
Wanna give your heart a break
I know you're scared it's wrong
Like you might make a mistake
There's just one life to live
And there's no time to wait, to wait
So let me give your heart a break, give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break
There's just so much you can take
Give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break
Oh yeah, yeah

On Sunday you went home alone
There were tears in your eyes
I called your cell phone, my love
But you did not reply

The world is ours if we want it
We can take it if you just take my hand
There's no turning back now
Baby, try to understand

Don't wanna break your heart
Wanna give your heart a break
I know you're scared it's wrong
Like you might make a mistake
There's just one life to live
And there's no time to wait, to wait
So let me give your heart a break, give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break
There's just so much you can take
Give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break
Oh yeah, yeah

When your lips are on my lips
Then our hearts beat as one
But you slip out of my fingertips
Every time you run, whoa-oh-whoa-oh-oh

Don't wanna break your heart
Wanna give your heart a break
I know you're scared it's wrong
Like you might make a mistake
There's just one life to live
And there's no time to wait, to wait
So let me give your heart a break

'Cause you've been hurt before
I can see it in your eyes
You try to smile it away, some things you can't disguise
Don't wanna break your heart
Maybe, I can ease the ache, the ache
So let me give your heart a break, give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break
There's just so much you can take
Give your heart a break
Let me give your heart a break, your heart a break
Oh yeah, yeah

The day I first met you
You told me you'd never fall in love

Wake Up - Alanis Morissette

Choices. Dilemma. Decisions. Irony. 

There will always be two sides in a coin. One cannot appreciate the light without the concept of darkness.  Love is the absence of hate.  Loneliness is not happiness. 

When we reach that moment of caring less for ourselves, we expect a little hug from someone. When we have resolved to stop from our chores and be with somebody else for a chat, that lightens our mood.  Once again, we cannot appreciate bliss without having a concept of sadness.

We put our energy to someone without us realizing that they are so full of themselves, they cannot be disturbed even for a moment.  But when they do find time for you, their minds go off the air, they are not really there.  "I am here, but not really present."

Sleepy? Taking someone for granted? Taking it easy with your work? Getting tired of your routine? Wake up. Realize that somebody else is dreaming of your position, somebody else if longing to be with your priced possession.

Wake up.

"Wake Up"

You like snow but only if it's warm
You like rain but only if it's dry
No sentimental value to the rose that fell on your floor
No fundamental excuse for the granted I'm taken for

'Cause it's easy not to
So much easier not to
And what goes around never comes around to you

You like pain but only if it doesn't hurt too much
And you sit...and you wait...to receive
There's an abvious attraction
To the path of least resistance in your life
There's an obvious aversion no amount of my insistance
Could make you try tonight

'Cause it's easy not to
So much easier not to
And what goes around never comes around to you
To you to you to you to you to you...
There's no love no money no thrill anymore

There's an apprehensive naked little trembling boy
With his head in his hands
There's an underestimated and impatient little girl
Raising her hand

But it's easy not to
So much easier not to
And what goes around never comes around to you
To you, to you

get up get up get up off of it
get up get up get up off of it
get out get outta here enough already
get up get up get up off of it
wake up

You Are - Colton Dixon

This song instantly appealed to me as it talks about an inspiration. Colton Dixon was an american Idol finalist, known to be the Christian singer in the group.  It immediately occurred to me that in this song, he is talking about God. For us Christians, God is the source of our inspiration and strength.

I like this song really. It talks about our relationship with God. It is a reminder that we have our hope in him, our inspiration in him, our love in him, our joy in him.

That is one true love indeed.

"You Are"

When I can't find the words
To say how much it hurts
You are the healing in my heart
When all that I can see
Are broken memories
You are the light that's in the dark

You are the song
You are the song I'm singing
You are the air
You are the air I breathe in
You are the hope
You are the hope I'm needin'
Whoa
You are

And when my circumstance
Leaves me with empty hands
You're the provider of my needs
When all my dirtiness
Has left me helpless
You are the rain that washes me

You are the song
You are the song I'm singing
You are the air
You are the air I breathe in
You are the hope
You are the hope I'm needin'
Whoa

(Whoa)

You are the song
You are the song I'm singing
You are the air
You are the air I breathe in
You are the hope
You are the hope I'm needin'
Whoa

If I had no voice, if I had no tongue
I would dance for You like the rising sun
And when that day comes and I see Your face
I will shout Your endless, glorious praise
If I had no voice, if I had no tongue
I would dance for You like the rising sun
And when that day comes and I see Your face
I will shout Your endless, glorious praise

You are the song
You are the song I'm singing
You are the air
You are the air I breathe in
You are the hope
You are the hope I'm needin'
Whoa

(Whoa)

You are the song
(You are the song
You are the song I'm singing)
You are the air
(You are the air
You are the air I breathe in)
You are hope
(You are the hope
You are the hope I'm needin')
I'm singin' whoa

Jealous - Nina

A song from Nina. 

Jealous.  That is a feeling which we do not want to experience but when we do, we just have to make sure to move on. A friend shared the lyrics of this song with me without any explanation but i can read between the lines. 

I really don't have much to say about this one except that: I too am feeling jealous... right now.


Here goes the lyrics.

Jealous of the girl who caught your eye
One of my darker days
When you looked at her where was I?
Shoulda been in her place, here I am
All alone imagining what could have been
If I had been there

Jealous of the one whose arms are around you
If she's keeping you satisfied
Jealous of the one who finally found you
Made your sun and your stars collide

La la la la la la la
She's a very, very lucky girl
La la la la la la la

Jealous of the one who won your heart
They say it's a perfect match
She's gonna get to be where you are
And I don't get better than that

She'll say you're fine
Whisper words I wish were mine
And they might have been
If I had been there

Jealous of the one whose arms are around you
If she's keeping you satisfied
[| From: http://www.elyrics.net |]

Jealous of the one who finally found you
Made your sun and your stars collide

La la la la la la la
She's a very, very lucky girl
La la la la la la la

You know I'd fight the good fight
If I thought I'd change your mind
But if she makes you happy
I would leave that dream behind

Man, she better treat you right
And give you everything
'Cause at the moment she doesn't
I'll be waiting in the wings

Jealous of the one whose arms are around you
If she's keeping you satisfied
Jealous of the one who finally found you
Made your sun and your stars collide

La la la la la la la
She's a very, very lucky girl
La la la la la la la

La la la la la la la
She's a very, very lucky girl
