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!

What Makes A Man

westlife-wallpaper-1

Yes, as what you’ve imagined, this is the song of Westlife, many many years ago.

What Makes A Man by Westlife

This isn’t goodbye, even as I watch you leave, this isn’t goodbye
I swear I won’t cry, even as tears fill my eyes, I swear I won’t cry

Any other girl, I’d let you walk away
Any other girl, I’m sure I’d be ok

Tell me what makes a man
Wanna give you all his heart
Smile when you’re around
And cry when you’re apart
If you know what makes a man
Wanna love you the way I do
Girl you gotta let me know
So I can get over you

What makes her so right?
Is it the sound of her laugh?
That look in her eyes
When do you decide?
She is the dream that you seek
That force in your life

When you apologize, no matter who was wrong
When you get on your knees if that would bring her home

Tell me what makes a man
Wanna give you all his heart
Smile when you’re around
And cry when you’re apart
If you know what makes a man
Wanna love you the way I do
Girl you gotta let me know

So that I can get over you

Other girls will come along, they always do
But what’s the point when all I ever want is you, tell me

Tell me what makes a man
Wanna give you all his heart
Smile when you’re around
And cry when you’re apart
If you know what makes a man
Wanna love you the way I do
Girl you gotta let me know….. (let me know)
Girl you gotta let me know….. (wooo)
So I can get over you

I was on assignment (not mine, was doing a favour for a friend) when I suddenly went to Youtube, for a lil bit of mind refreshments. I started browsing the old songs, 90’s songs, started with M2M, then S Club 7, ATeens, lastly this favourite band of mine when I was little/teenager, Westlife. I was such a big fan. A BIG BIG fan! I once almost wrote a letter to the main vocalist, Shane Filan, who’s my favourite (he’s so kiuttt and suara so sedap). Already bought the flowery sweet smelling papers and envelope, just for him. Cant remember what was stopping me back then, but I ended up using those papers and envelope for other things. Haha

One of the songs that I still like listening to, is What Makes A Man. I don’t know why, but if you really really look at the lyrics, you would find them so beautiful.

Enjoy.

Team by Lorde

Wait ’til you’re announced
We’ve not yet lost all our graces
The hounds will stay in chains
Look upon your greatness
That you’ll send the call out
(Send the call out [15x])

Call all the ladies out
They’re in their finery
A hundred jewels on throats
A hundred jewels between teeth
Now bring my boys in
Their skin in craters like the moon
The moon we love like a brother, while he glows through the room

Dancin’ around the lies we tell
Dancin’ around big eyes as well
Even the comatose they don’t dance and tell

[Chorus]
We live in cities you’ll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams
And you know, we’re on each other’s team

I’m kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air, so there
So all the cups got broke shards beneath our feet but it wasn’t my fault
And everyone’s competing for a love they won’t receive
‘Cause what this palace wants is release

[Chorus]
We live in cities you’ll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams
And you know, we’re on each other’s team

I’m kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air
So there
I’m kinda older than I was when I revelled without a care
So there

[Chorus]
We live in cities you’ll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams
And you know, we’re on each other’s team
We’re on each other’s team
And you know, we’re on each other’s team
We’re on each other’s team
And you know, and you know, and you know

I’m a fan of Lorde. Her voice, her song. Can’t get this song out of my head, so I just set it as my ringtone.

Enjoy!

Wake Me Up

Wake Me Up by Avicii and Aloe Blacc

Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can’t tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start

They tell me I’m too young to understand
They say I’m caught up in a dream
Well life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes
Well that’s fine by me

[2x]
So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn’t know I was lost

I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don’t have any plans

Wish that I could stay forever this young
Not afraid to close my eyes
Life’s a game made for everyone
And love is the prize

[2x]
So wake me up when it’s all over
When I’m wiser and I’m older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn’t know I was lost

Didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know (didn’t know, didn’t know)

Avicii’s version

Aloe Blacc’s version

We all know the song is by Avicii, but who’s actually behind the song, the one who sings the inspirational lyrics?

The first time I heard the song, I was already attracted to the voice and the lyrics. I have never heard of Avicii, so I googled him (google image je sbb just nk tau muka, malas baca info hahah). When I saw his quite jambu face, I didn’t believe that face came in a package with that voice, so I went to Youtube to watch his live performance of this song (masa ni jugak baru tau Levels tu dier jugak, selalu dgr tapi x pernah bother haha). Then, only then I knew, ‘Owh, he’s just the DJ. So, who’s the singer?’, because I was more attracted to the singer of this song when I first listened to it, not the music arrangement.

Meet Aloe Blacc, people!

Let’s give more credit to this talented fella. If you watch Blacc’s version of Wake Me Up video clip, you can see that it is even stronger because some of those people in his video actually experienced their scenes, in real life.

Royals by Lorde

[Verse 1]
I’ve never seen a diamond in the flesh
I cut my teeth on wedding rings in the movies
And I’m not proud of my address,
In a torn-up town, no postcode envy

But every song’s like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin’ in the bathroom
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room,
We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody’s like Cristal*, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash.
We don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your love affair.

And we’ll never be royals (royals).
It don’t run in our blood,
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

[Verse 2]
My friends and I—we’ve cracked the code.
We count our dollars on the train to the party.
And everyone who knows us knows that we’re fine with this,
We didn’t come for money.

But every song’s like gold teeth, grey goose, trippin’ in the bathroom.
Blood stains, ball gowns, trashin’ the hotel room,
We don’t care, we’re driving Cadillacs in our dreams.
But everybody’s like Cristal, Maybach, diamonds on your timepiece.
Jet planes, islands, tigers on a gold leash
We don’t care, we aren’t caught up in your love affair

And we’ll never be royals (royals).
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy.

Ooh ooh oh
We’re bigger than we ever dreamed,
And I’m in love with being queen.
Ooh ooh oh
Life is great without a care
We aren’t caught up in your love affair.

And we’ll never be royals (royals).
It don’t run in our blood
That kind of luxe just ain’t for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz
Let me be your ruler (ruler),
You can call me queen Bee
And baby I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule, I’ll rule.
Let me live that fantasy

Addicted to this song! Love love love!
