Battleships by Daughtry

Yeah

I’m sinking inside
And the masts and lines are broken down tonight.
I swallow my pride
But we’re drowning in the ocean and it’s tearing my heart open

Baby, we’re high then we’re low, first it’s yes then it’s no, and we’re changing like the tides
Yeah, but I want you, I need you, and I guarantee you we’ll make it out alive

‘Cause I don’t wanna fight no more,
Even when the waves get rough
I don’t wanna see the day we say we’ve had enough

And I don’t wanna fight this war
Bullets coming off our lips
But we stick to our guns and we love like battleships.
Like battleships.

Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And the cannon goes
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And the cannon goes

Bombs fly through the air
And I know that we’re both playing not so fair.
Oh, show, show me you care
I got my white flag up and it’s waving ’cause you know this love’s worth saving, baby.

We’re high then we’re low, first it’s yes then it’s no, and we’re changing like the tides
Yeah, but I want you, I need you, and I guarantee you we’ll make it out alive

‘Cause I don’t wanna fight no more,
Even when the waves get rough
I don’t wanna see the day we say we’ve had enough

And I don’t wanna fight this war
Bullets coming off our lips
But we stick to our guns and we love like battleships.
Like battleships.

Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And the cannon goes
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And we love, yeah we love
And we love, yeah we love

I’m sinking inside
Can we finally put our weapons down tonight?

‘Cause I don’t wanna fight no more,
Even when the waves get rough
I don’t wanna see the day we say we’ve had enough

And I don’t wanna fight this war
Bullets coming off our lips
But we stick to our guns and we love like battleships.
Like battleships.

Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And the cannon goes
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And the cannon goes
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And the cannon goes
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom, boom, boom
Boom, ba-boom, boom, ba-boom
And we love like battleships.

I find myself singing this song all the time now.

Love love Daughtry!

September (It Was Worth It In The End)

Daughtry

September by Daughtry

How the time passed away? All the trouble that we gave
And all those days we spent out by the lake
Has it all gone to waste? All the promises we made
One by one they vanish just the same

Of all the things I still remember
Summer’s never looked the same
The years go by and time just seems to fly
But the memories remain

In the middle of September we’d still play out in the rain
Nothing to lose but everything to gain
Reflecting now on how things could’ve been
It was worth it in the end

Now it all seems so clear, there’s nothing left to fear
So we made our way by finding what was real
Now the days are so long that summer’s moving on
We reach for something that’s already gone

Of all the things I still remember
Summer’s never looked the same
The years go by and time just seems to fly
But the memories remain

In the middle of September we’d still play out in the rain
Nothing to lose but everything to gain
Reflecting now on how things could’ve been
It was worth it in the end

We knew we had to leave this town
But we never knew when and we never knew how
We would end up here the way we are
Yeah we knew we had to leave this town
But we never knew when and we never knew how

Of all the things I still remember
Summer’s never looked the same
The years go by and time just seems to fly
But the memories remain

In the middle of September we’d still play out in the rain
Nothing to lose but everything to gain
Reflecting now on how things could’ve been
It was worth it in the end

Can’t sleep right now.
September, it’s the month where he left us all.
I miss you so much, ayah.

A Little Bit Of Here And There

Yeah, blogging again!

Lately, I keep blogging. Why? Coz I love my new layout so I’m in high spirit updating my blog. So, if any of you are getting tired of it, you can always surf away. It’s that simple. 🙂

Okay. It’s now the twentieth day of Ramadhan for us, Moslems. How is everyone doing? I’ve already had my MC for almost a week, sooo I guess I am doing good. Haha. It’s now getting nearer to raya. This is going to be my first raya as a wife. I’m kind of excited and already finished doing major shopping (like shoes, handbags, dresses, baju melayu, scarves etc) for both of us. Our raya theme is purple+pink. I actually wanted some turqoise but I couldn’t say no to the purple baju kurung moden that I saw in Tangkak with Mr.Gonzales. But we’re planning to peek at some last-minute shopping too. Maybe I could catch a few more…? And this time turqoise?? Let’s see. Owh, almost forgot! I haven’t bought any raya brooch yet! Okay, put that in the list.

Some of this actually not for raya, for example that scarf. It's for casual outings. Bought it coz.... I love it?

While blogging, I’m also downloading Daughtry’s songs. I’m planning to burn those awesome songs into a CD and put it in my car. So whenever Hitz.fm is playing suckie songs, I can always play this. Erm, not just Daughtry actually, I’m also downloading Lifehouse’s. I love this kinda bands you know, Daughtry, Lifehouse, Nickelback, Rascal Flatts, I used to like 3 Doors Down too (please note, I didn’t mention Westlife coz that was the band I used to like in my TEENAGE years). But my favourite would be Daughtry, Chris Daughtry. I believe he has the manliest voice ever on Earth!

How I wish I can play guitar.. No, I’m too lazy to learn. I want it to magically happens. Boleh? #LikeABoss

Hmm.. What else to ramble here? Owh, here’s this funy+sweet story about my Year 5 students. I was mad, like really mad at them on last two Friday. I was so mad that I walked out of the class just like that even though it wasn’t really time yet. Then, when I was in the staffroom, this Year 3 boy came to me and gave me something. It was a letter. He said, ‘Cher, ni budak2 darjah 5 bagi.’ It surprised me a little bit, so I asked, ‘Budak darjah 5 tu sape?’ and he said ‘Tah, budak2 lelaki’. I said thanks to the boy, and read the letter. Yes, it was an apology letter. Too bad I already threw it out otherwise I can put the picture here. I was not convinced by their apology. On the next Monday, I was still mad, so I didn’t enter the class. I just gave them work to finish. I did the same thing on Tuesday. Wednesday was on off day due to Nuzul Quran, so on Thursday, I decided to enter the class. Enough la merajuk with kids. Hmm… I didn’t mention anything about the Friday incident, I straight away went on with my Literature lesson. Well… I guess they behaved better this time. When I walked out of the class, these two girls came to me, and handed me something. It was presents. I asked them,’What for?’ One of them said, ‘Kitorang tak tau birthday teacher bile, so kitorg bagi je la..’ I laughed and said, ‘My birthday bulan April. Dah lame lepas..’ ‘Takpe la teacher.. Ambik je..’ I was touched. I think I knew why they gave me the ‘birthday presents’. I smiled and thanked the sweet girls. As I opened the box, owh I love it!!! This handphone string that has my name on it, and this very cute little house, full of red and green flower petals in it. I thought they were very cute. And, they were RED, my favourite colour! I told Mr.Gonzales about it, and he was soo jealous that I have such sweet students. Hehe

Look at that handphone string. Lovely!

The little house. I put this on my car's dashboard. 🙂

Okay, speaking about Mr.Gonzales, I have something to clarify here. In the last entry, when I said I was really mad about him coz he was being too nice, some have misunderstood what I was trying to say. Some have claimed that I’m not being grateful for what I have? Maybe because of my poor writing that the message was not well delivered. But if you read carefully, it was actually a compliment I wrote for him. What I meant was, he is the only one who can put up with me at my worst. He is the only one who could be that patient with me. And it actually works well for our relationship. If you asked me, do I want someone who’s as stubborn as me, as bad-tempered as me, as mean as me, HELL NO! I am sure our house will be torn apart. What I am saying is, yes, he’s so patient, always gives in, always takes whatever bullets I shoot at him and hardly shoot them back at me, that at some points I find it boring and no challenges at all, but thank you God, it works that way, because if it didn’t we wouldn’t get to this point. We wouldn’t get married to each other. He teaches me to be a better person in his own way, even though so.far.it.doesn’t.really.succeed.coz.i’m.still.bad.tempered.as.ever but my point is, unlike any other men, he is able to handle me. I feel like he’s the only man who can do that. I appreciate him. I’m grateful that I have him in my life. I won’t trade him for anything in this world, even if Michael Owen or Jensen Ackles get in the way. Okay. Full stop.

The luckiest or not-so-luckiest man in the world<- My beloved husband. 🙂

Okay, I’ve rambled quite a lot already. I think that’s all for this time. Pray I won’t be blogging again for the next 24 hours.

Bye.

Tennessee Line

Tennessee Line by Daughtry

I open my lungs to breathe in forgiveness and love
Haunting me now reminders of how I used to be
And on down the road my troubles are sure to follow
Looking out the window, the hell if I know where I will go
So I’ll just keep on driving

On my way to L.A. looking into the rear view as the roads fade away
I’ve sworn off my past, first to last bad call that I ever made
Tell me how to make right every wrong turn that I’ve learned
So this can all end tonight, Tennessee line just changed my mind
Well, it’s my heart I’ll follow this time

Who would’ve known that pride is so hard to swallow?
As I rest on the shoulder of a road growing colder
With the trouble I own, should I just keep on driving?

On my way to L.A. looking into the rear view as the roads fade away
I’ve sworn off my past, first to last bad call that I ever made
Tell me how to make right every wrong turn that I’ve learned
So this can all end tonight, Tennessee line just changed my mind
Well, it’s my heart I’ll follow this time

I know I must be doing something right
Head the other way, back to where I started out
Ask myself if I can turn it all around tonight
And stop living with doubt

On my way to L.A. looking into the rear view as the roads fade away
I’ve sworn off my past, first to last bad call that I ever made
Tell me how to make right every wrong turn that I’ve learned
So this can all end tonight, Tennessee line just changed my mind
Well, it’s my heart I’ll follow this time

I’ve sworn off my past, first to last bad call that I ever made
It’s my heart I’ll follow this time
I’ve sworn off my past, first to last bad call that I ever made
I’m gonna turn it all around tonight, turn it all around tonight
Turn it all around tonight
I’m gonna turn it all around tonight at the Tennessee line

I didn’t know the song, and I bet this is not his popular single of his album. But the other day, when I was surfing the net, I heard this song on the TV. I know it’s by Daughtry (his voice is one of a kind, you see). I quickly ran in front of the TV, to check out the song, what’s the title and etc. Turned out it wasn’t a video clip, it was a trailer with the song as its background music. It was Justified trailer, the TV-series.

Justified TV-Series

The song suits the wordings of the trailer very well. It even fits the background of the series, country setting. I fell in love with the song instantly! Daughtry has the best manly voice ever!!

Enjoy the song!

Life After You

Life After You by Daughtry

Ten miles from town
And I just broke down
Spitting out smoke on the side of the road
I’m out here alone
Just trying to get home
To tell you I was wrong
But you already know
Believe me I won’t stop at nothing
To see you so I’ve started running

All that I’m after is a life full of laughter
As long as I’m laughing with you
And I think that all that still matters
Is love ever after
After the life we’ve been through
Cause I know there’s no life after you

The last time we talked
The night that I walked
Burns like an iron in the back of my mind
I must have been high to say you and I
Weren’t meant to be and just wasting my time
Oh why did I ever doubt you
You know I would die here without you

All that I’m after is a life full of laughter
As long as I’m laughing with you
And I think that all that still matters
Is love ever after
After the life we’ve been through
Cause I know there’s no life after you

You and I
Right or wrong
There’s no other one
After this time I’ve spent alone
I do believe that a man with sight can be so blind
Thinking bout the better times
Musta been out of my mind
So I’m running back to tell you
All that I’m after is a life full of laughter
Without you God knows what I’d do

All that I’m after is a life full of laughter
As long as I’m laughing with you
And I think that all that still matters
Is love ever after
After the life we’ve been through
I know there’s no life after you
I know there’s no life after you
I know there’s no life after you
I know there’s no life after you
I know there’s no life after you
I know there’s no life after you
I know there’s no life after you

This song suits my mood at the moment…
😦

And yeah, I’m THAT emotional.
