So…if you know me well, you know i’m a music fanatic. To the point where people annoyed with my hello-can’t-you-just-put-off-your-damn-earphone-since-we’ve-been-calling-you-like-forever attitude. Well…that’s just how i roll guys. Can’t concentrate, can’t think and can’t start my day without good tunes. People have their own peculiar way to start their day, and so do i. So…suck it up!
Well, this post is not all about being grumpy or anything. Just wanna share with you, not a playlist, but lyrics that caught my eyes, trapped my heart and stayed in my head for, i don’t know, lots of years to come? (okay, you’re being over-the-top now). As much as i like trashy songs (i’m looking at you, bieber-how-could-you-be-so-damn-addicting-yet-i-know-you’re-so-trashy songs!), sometimes i could just stop my songs if i heard lyrics that caught my ear right that moment.
It won’t be a full lyrics, just glimpse of it that i loathe the most. You probably got bored before you finished reading this post HA HA.
So, here we go!
1. Young and Beautiful – Lana Del Rey
“Will you still love me
When I’m no longer young and beautiful?
Will you still love me
When I got nothing but my aching soul?”
2. Brain – Banks
” Cause everything’s a game
Always trying to calculate
Trying to look smart but not too smart
To threaten anything they say”
3. Waiting on the World to Change – John Mayer (oldie but goodie)
” It’s not that we don’t care,
We just know that the fight ain’t fair
So we keep on waiting
Waiting on the world to change”
4. The Ghost that We Knew – Mumford and Sons
” So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light
Cause oh that gave me such a fright
But I will hold as long as you like
Just promise me we’ll be alright”
5. Human – The Killers
“Are we human, or are we dancer?
6. Without You – Lana Del Rey (Sense some pattern here? I’m in Lana coma, so eat that up)
“All my dreams and all the lights mean
Nothing if i can’t have you”
7. Daughter – Youth
” And if you’re in love, then you are the lucky one,
‘Cause most of us are bitter over someone.
Setting fire to our insides for fun,
To distract our hearts from ever missing them”
8. Pack Up Your Trouble in Your Old Kit Bag – Minnutes
“What’s the use of worrying
It never was worth while
So, pack up your troubles in your old kit bag
And smile, smile, smile”
(can’t find any link. Youtube might help?)
9. Maybe I’m Amazed – Paul McCartney
“Maybe I’m amazed at the way you’re with me all the time,
Maybe I’m afraid of the way I leave you.
Maybe I’m amazed at the way you help me sing my song;
Right me when I’m wrong
Maybe I’m amazed at the way I really need you”

https://soundcloud.com/paulmccartney/12-maybe-im-amazed-2011 (the repackaged version, if you want something lighter than the live version. What am i doing with listing all this songs -___-)
10. Chasing Cars – Snow Patrol
“All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see
I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all”
