Senseless Thoughts

Drift into my paradise.

Music

I love music so obviously it has to exist in my blog.

Piece by Piece

So…

Kelly Clarkson, who is pregnant but still pretty, came back to American Idol for a performance and she sang her single Piece by Piece for the final season of the said show where she has been chosen as the first season’s grand winner.

It was emotional, heartbreaking, painful, every word is a strike on the heart, yet it was a song of hope and faith being built up once again.

I got so affected because a part of it was my song, I mean, it was my story, too. It brought me to tears. From the first note to the last, goosebumps never left my skin. A powerful, meaningful, wonderful song that a girl like me, like her, can relate to. I can’t describe it more. It was… a song made from the scars of the heart, made from the love she is now receiving, made from the past, made for the future.

I posted it so if you haven’t seen it yet, here you go, but get some tissues first. ‘Kay?

Stuck by Darren Espanto

I was so inspirationless this past few weeks so I wasn’t able to post something worth reading again. And during my idle times, I end up repeating this same song over and over again. It hits me everytime.

Here’s his video from youtube. I hope you’ll like it too. I just became a Darren fanatic since I heard this.

Stuck by Darren Espanto

And the lyrics of course:

I was too dumb to notice
That there’s something about you
What am I supposed to do
I sure wish I knew
All the butterflies I felt inside
Never really mattered
Wishful thoughts inside and smiles
End up being shattered

What are we supposed to be
I’m hopelessly addicted to you
But you never felt the same
Time may pass us by
But you stay stuck on my mind
And that moment we stared that night
I thought it was right
But maybe I was wrong all along
I held onto something that never really mattered
Stuck on that starting line
I’m still silently, quietly hoping you’ll end up with me

I was too dumb to notice
There was something about you
How are you supposed to see things
If only you knew
All the times we were together
I never really mattered
All you see is what you want
My heart is being shattered

What are we supposed to be
I’m helplessly addicted to you
But you never felt the same
Time may pass us by
But you stay stuck on my mind
And that moment we stared that night
I thought it was right
But maybe I was wrong all along
I held onto something that never really mattered
Stuck on that starting line
I’m still silently, quietly hoping you’ll end up with me

Time may pass us by
But you stay stuck on my mind
And that moment we stared that night
I thought it was right

Time may pass us by
But you stay stuck on my mind
And that moment we stared that night
I thought it was right
But maybe I was wrong all along
I held onto something that never really mattered
Stuck on that starting line
I’m still silently, quietly hoping you’ll end up with me

I was too dumb to notice
That there’s something about you
What am I supposed to do if…
I’m still stuck on you…

Break My Heart Some More

I’m looking back at the things we used to do
And I miss you
I miss the way we used to be
I’ve been looking back all the time
You used to love me
More and more each day
Now the only thing I pray is
For you to come back to where you were

I’m about to let go
I’m so tired, so tired of holding on
What am I supposed to do
If you’re breaking my heart in two.

Break my heart some more
So I could cry for one last time
Won’t you break my heart some more?
And everything will be just fine
If the other side says I should leave
And the other side tells I should stay
I wish it so hard to finally let you go
Ooh. ooh
Break my heart some more
So I could finally say goodbye to you
Ladadadada… oooh.

I’m looking back at the love that we once knew
And I miss you
You promised I’m the only one
But I’m just not enough for you
You say you’ll change
I’m hoping things will be okay
The pain’s not going away
Still a part of me wants you to stay.

I’m about to let go
I’m so tired, so tired of holding on
What am I supposed to do
If you’re breaking my heart in two
Ooh.

Break my heart some more
So I could cry for one last time
Won’t you break my heart some more?
And everything will be just fine
If the other side says I should leave
And the other side says I should stay
But it’s just so hard to finally let you go
Break my heart some more
So I could finally say goodbye
To you

Break my heart some more
So I could cry for one last time
Won’t you break my heart some more?
And everything will be just fine
If the other side says I should leave
And the other side says I should stay
Oh it’s just so hard to finally let you go
Ooh. ooh
Break my heart some more
So I could finally say goodbye
To you
Ooh. ooh
Break my heart

I simply love his songs. This one is beautiful. Exactly the song for me some months ago. And I finally said goodbye. 👍

Encounter Musicale

image

The Encounter Musicale by Hope Church Singapore was conducted to call everyone to have an encounter with Jesus.

The Musicale is a combination of stories in the Bible being related to some situations in our daily lives, music, dance, outstanding performances from the artists and hosts, and a sharing of thoughts. It was fun. It was never boring. It was enlightening.

I am not a part of their church but seeing people come together to encounter Jesus is an overwhelming experience. I am glad I heed the invitation.

Here are some snapshots of the performances. I preferred watching intently and wholeheartedly than taking my phone out to catch it on video.

image

Above was Your Face Sounds Familiar thing as an introduction.

image

The story of a wealthy man. I forgot the Bible verse honestly.

image

This was Abraham and Isaac, father and son story.

image

And many more. The last part was performed by all of the artists and the song was When You Believe.

I thank my friend for this invitation. It somehow made me aware of the encounters with Jesus that I had, and ignored. So now, I’ll be more attentive to those callings. 👆

Tadhana (Destiny)

TADHANA
Up Dharma Down

Sa hindi inaaasahang
Pagtatagpo ng mga mundo
May minsan lang na nagdugtong,
Damang dama na ang ugong nito
‘Di pa ba sapat ang sakit at lahat
Na hinding hindi ko ipararanas sayo
Ibinubunyag ka ng iyong mata
Sumisigaw ng pag-sinta.

Ba’t di pa patulan
Ang pagsuyong nagkulang
Tayong umaasang
Hilaga’t kanluran
Ikaw ang hantungan
At bilang kanlungan mo
Ako ang sasagip sa’yo.

Saan nga ba patungo,
Nakayapak at nahihiwagaan
Ang bagyo ng tadhana ay
Dinadala ako sa init ng bisig mo.

Ba’t ‘di pa sabihin
Ang hindi mo maamin
Ipa-uubaya na lang ba ‘to sa hangin
huwag mong ikatakot
Ang bulong ng damdamin mo
Naririto ako at nakikinig sa’yo.

Hooohh… hoooohh…
Hooohh… hoooohh…
Hooohh… hoooohh…
________

It’s kinda difficult and time consuming to translate the song word by word but this song is about Destiny making a way for two people to be together while the first person is trying to convince the second person, who definitely feels the same way, to let it just be and conquer the fear because it was fate who brought them into each other’s arms.

OPM or Original Pinoy Music is so unique you would close your eyes when you hear one and would let it bring you to some place the song is leading you. Savour the lyrics, so soothing and “tagos sa puso”.

*Maybe I’ll try to update this post when I have already translated it nicely… when my mind’s ready. 🙂 *

Summer Rain

You see, I have such unstoppable floating thoughts that I even composed a song I don’t even think was good enough. Anyway, I composed this song four years ago when I was alone at home holding my guitar, thinking of what song to play, overwhelmed by emotions, it was May, and while sitting on our front porch, rain poured down, the first rain of May, so sudden that I got this idea to write something down. So I took a pen and a note and scribbled some words putting my heart into it. This is actually my second composition. I want to laugh at myself for doing this and posting this but still, it is my work, I don’t have to be ashamed about it. Only some people have the courage to publicize such works anyway. So here it is.

SUMMER RAIN

Here comes the rain, pouring down on a summer day
Come and hide all my tears and fears away
Let me drown, let me cry, let me get by my regrets
Cover up all my pains and let me see how the sun sets.

It’s daylight but dark, nothing seems so right today
I’ve been waiting for this since love feels so far away
‘Tis the only way, my only chance to stop all these pretensions
And just this once, just this time, I’ll be true to my own.

Chorus:
So I’m going on alone
I’ll be on my way moving on
And I’ll be fine
‘Cause when the night comes
And I have to sleep
I’ll forget all our memories.

Teardrops fall one by one, the rain is almost done
Now the sky’s becoming clear, the clouds have been dried up
Here I am, standing still, wiping the shadows of all my tears.
The sun has shown and I’ll be home letting go of my old dreams.

Chorus:
So I’m going on alone
I’ll be on my way moving on
And I’ll be fine
‘Cause when the night comes
And I have to sleep
I’ll forget about you.
I smile and my heart shines
No more pain, laughters all around
Now I see, it’s clear to me
There’s no more us
‘Cause we’re not meant to be.

Here comes the sun shining down before he ends the day
He told me to get over now, and my troubles fade away…

I have my own melody for this but if in case you would like to put a new tune to it, I would love to hear it from you. ☺
