A song that I can actually relate to..

on Monday, July 20, 2009

Some of you may think "not another songggg!!" Well, yes it's another song. I got an interpretation of it. Maybe that's why i think i can relate to it soo much.

If I had to
I would put myself right beside you
So let me ask
Would you like that?
Would you like that?

And I don't mind
If you say this love is the last time
So now I'll ask
Do you like that?
Do you like that?


Something's getting in the way.
Something's just about to break.
I will try to find my place in the diary of Jane.
So tell me how it should be.

Try to find out what makes you tick.
As I lie down
Sore and sick.
Do you like that?
Do you like that?

There's a fine line between love and hate.
And I don't mind.
Just let me say that
I like that
I like that

Something's getting in the way.
Something's just about to break.
I will try to find my place in the diary of Jane.
As I burn another page,
As I look the other way.
I still try to find my place in the diary of Jane.
So tell me how it should be.

Desperate, I will crawl
Waiting for so long
No love, there is no love.
Die for anyone
What have I become?

Something's getting in the way.
Something's just about to break.
I will try to find my place in the diary of Jane.
As I burn another page,
As I look the other way.
I still try to find my place in the diary of Jane.

Yup, that's right. The diary of Jane. This is my interpretation of it. The diary is literal, it shows in the music video. The guy loves the girl but the girl is depressed and lost. She doesn't even know who she is or how she feels about the guy and keeps pushing him away and it's killing him. The girl ends up committing suicide. (hence the grave at the end) and the guy doesn't know why she did it or how she fully felt, if he loved her or not. He finds her diary and try to figure it out, while asking her what to do, and even considers killing himself (if I had to, I would put myself right beside you) He's trying to "find his place" in her life, her heart, her diary. Finally he gives up with the diary, burns it (as I burn another page) and tries to forget about it (as I look the other way) but still can't get it out of his head, (still I try to find my place...) as in it'll eat at him forever. Did he love her? Will he ever know?

Edit : Now I'm starting to think that Jane isn't one person. Jane is like a generic name. E.g John Doe or Jane Doe... It's not a real identity in this song. He's going out with all these women, but he never mattered to them. So he keeps trying to find his place in their diary figuratively since diary means a place where a person stores their emotion or feelings. He wants to find a place in a woman's heart.

Zen philosophy with a little twist of humor to "enlighten" your day...

1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either. Just leave me the hell alone.

2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a leaky tire.

3. It's always darkest before dawn. So if you're going to steal your neighbor's
newspaper, that's the time to do it.

4. Don't be irreplaceable; if you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.

5. No one is listening until you make a mistake.

6. Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else.

7. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.

8. It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

9. It is far more impressive when others discover your good qualities without your help.

10. If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments.

11. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

12. If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you.

13. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will sit in a boat & drink beer all day.

14. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

15. Don't squat with your spurs on.

16. If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.

17. If you drink, don't park. Accidents cause people.

18. Some days you are the bug, some days you are the windshield.

19. Good judgment comes from bad experience and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

20. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

21. Timing has an awful lot to do with the outcome of a rain dance.

22. A closed mouth gathers no foot.

23. Duct tape is like the force: it has a light side and a dark side, and it holds the universe together.

24. There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works.

25. Generally speaking, you aren't learning much when your mouth is moving.

26. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

Random Thoughts....

on Thursday, June 18, 2009

*Sigh* I got almost all my marks today. It was terrible actually... Really terrible. But my friends said its so-so since my absent of 3 months is taken into consideration... I'm still pissed with the result.. But I'm not going to let this event bring me down. A setback is merely a setup for a comeback

2.Blog/Oral test
Anyways, It's been awhile since I haven't updated. My friend told me that all my posts were about songs or movies. That's actually very true, i guess i should talk about something else right? Recently, i did an oral test for English. I was talking about Happiness and Love. Thank god i got excellent... Teacher said it was motivational =) I always sort of fancy myself as a motivational speaker with all these uplifting and optimistic quotes i got from books and internet.

Oh yeah, I got 40/50 for my essay which really suck... That is how much my marks dropped.. Last time it was at least 45/50... Anyway it was about describing the person who's close to your heart... I had 1 person in mind(excluding my family). But sadly, we're never meant to be. Gosh, im being very emo-ish right now =( Back to the point. I wrote about my mum. My dear beloved mum. Its not that i don't love my dad, i love him too. But they only ask for 1 person. I figure i write about my mum, and probably the next essay i might write about my dad.

Time and time and time again
I try to erase my thoughts
Of all the love she would bring
With all the want and aughts
It's like a dream
That never comes real
But you wish for reality
You wish for something real
She means a lot to me
And i don't think she'll ever know
Because her love is like the wind
It comes then it goes
I wish she'd stop to smell the flowers
The ones i picked for her
But i guess the picture isn't clear
It's like a hazy blur
I can truly say
I gave a lot to many girls
But she is the only one
I'd truly give my world
Secret love is no fun
Because it's one heart
One face all alone
One secret heart

5.During hols
Im soo boredd these days. I did a movie marathon and novel marathon during the holidays. That was fun. I read Cecelia Ahern's books and Mitch Albom's books all over again. Then, i watched all the classic Disney movies, the really good ones. I created a top 5 classic Disney movies(doesn't include the new ones, obviously)
(i)Beauty and the beast
(ii)The lion king
There's also a couple of days that i went out. I went to RFL, an event that is organized to help people who have cancer. It was really fun =) Then, i also went out to time square, pavillion and klcc.. Most of the time just to hang out with friends. I got a bunch of good friends and I secretly cherish them even though i make fun of them sometimes(you know who you are =P)

Love Story

on Monday, June 8, 2009

Love Story

Where do I begin
To tell the story of how great a love can be
The sweet love story that is older than the sea
The simple truth about the love she brings to me
Where do I start

With her first hello
She gave new meaning to this empty world of mine
Therell never be another love, another time
She came into my life and made the living fine
She fills my heart

She fills my heart with very special things
With angels songs , with wild imaginings
She fills my soul with so much love
That everywhere I go Im never lonely
With you my love, who could be lonely
I reach for her hand-its always there

How long does it last
Can love be measured by the hours in a day
I have no answers now but this much I can say
I know Ill need her till the stars all burn away
And shell be there

So, I just finished watching Love Story. A beautiful yet sad story. The lyrics of the song says it all. Honestly, if the song goes up to 30mins, it still won't be enough because explaining about the love you have for someone using words is almost impossible. The beauty we see in the other person is countless. Only action can truly show how much that person means to us. This movie might not be an uplifting love story, but it is truly a magnificent one.

P.S : Dreams are the only thing that keeps us sane sometimes.

So, I literally just finished watching the movie "Once".. It's an Irish music film with the song "Falling slowly" made popular by Kris Allen. But I prefer the original version by Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova. Gosh, the movie was so sad and amazing at the same time... The ending suck though. Ohmygod, I hate the ending!! Well all in all, its a really good movie.. Gosh, Ireland is soo beautiful xD! Haha anyway, my favourite song from the movie is The Hill and If You Want Me.. Here's the lyrics of the song "The Hill" by Marketa Irglova

The Hill

Walking up the hill tonight
when you have closed your eyes.
I wish I didn't have to make
all those mistakes and be wise.
Please try to be patient
and know that I'm still learning.
I'm sorry that you have to see
the strength inside me burning.

But where are you my angel now?
Don't you see me crying?
And I know that you can't do it all
but you can't say I'm not trying.
I'm on my knees in front of him
but he doesn't seem to see me.
With all his troubles on his mind
he's looking right through me.
And I'm letting myself down
beside this fire in you.
And I wish that you could see
that half my troubles too.

Looking at you sleeping
I'm with the man I know.
I'm sitting here weeping
while the hours pass so slow.
And I know that in the morning
I'll have to let you go
and you'll be just a man
once I used to know.
But for these past few days
someone I don't recognize.
This isn't all my fault.
when will you realize?

Looking at you leaving, I'm looking for a sign

Omg, I just realized something from watching the movie "You've Got Mail".... It doesn't matter how much you are right for each other, heck you can even be perfect for each other. But if your heart feels nothing, then its not meant to be... Like James Morrison Sang, "You cant play on broken strings, You cant feel anything that your heart don't want to feel".

I was almost perfectly sure that our soulmate would be the person who is perfect for us. Everything that compliment our shortcomings and strengthen our strengths. But, it's not always like that. Love works in a mysterious way. The heart has its reasons that reason can not know...

I guess I should be moving on. All this time I was delusional. I thought to myself "we're perfect for each other, why isn't it working out then? Is there something wrong?" But now i know...

Anyway, you all should watch the movie "You've Got Mail" if you're into romantic movies. Its really sweet especially the ending... A movie worth watching on a Saturday night while cuddling with your loved one =)
