XO – John Mayer Version

 

Your love is bright as ever
Even in the shadows
Baby kiss me
Before they turn the lights out
Your heart is glowing
And I’m crashing into you
Baby kiss me, kiss me
Before they turn the lights out
Before they turn the lights out
Baby love me lights out

In the darkest night hour
I’ll search through the crowd
Your face is all that I see
I’ll give you everything
Baby, love me lights out
Baby, love me lights out

We don’t have forever
Baby daylight’s wasting
You better kiss me
Before our time is run out
Nobody sees what we see
They’re just hopelessly gazing
Baby take me, take me
Before they turn the lights out
Before time is run out
Baby love me lights out

In the darkest night hour
I’ll search through the crowd
Your face is all that I see
I’ll give you everything
Baby, love me lights out
Baby, love me lights out
You can turn my lights out

I love you like XO
You love me like XO
You kill me girl XO
You love me like XO
Is all that I see
I’ll give you everything
Baby love me lights out
Baby love me lights out
You can turn my lights out

In the darkest night hour
I’ll search through the crowd
Your face is all that I see
I’ll give you everything
Baby, love me lights out
Baby, love me lights out
You can turn my lights out

Walking On A Dream – Empire of the Sun

Walking on a dream
How can I explain
Talking to myself
Will I see again

We are always running for the thrill of it thrill of it
Always pushing up the hill searching for the thrill of it
On and on and on we are calling out and out again
Never looking down I’m just in awe of what’s in front of me

Is it real now
When two people become one
I can feel it
When two people become one

Thought I’d never see
The love you found in me
Now it’s changing all the time
Living in a rhythm where the minutes working overtime

We are always running for the thrill of it thrill of it
Always pushing up the hill searching for the thrill of it
On and on and on we are calling out and out again
Never looking down I’m just in awe of what’s in front of me

Is it real now
When two people become one
I can feel it
When two people become one

Is it real now
When two people become one
I can feel it
When two people become one

Catch me I’m falling down
Catch me I’m falling down

Don’t stop just keep going on
I’m your shoulder lean upon
So come on deliver from inside
All we got is tonight that is right ’till first light

Is it real now
When two people become one
I can feel it
When two people become one

Is it real now
When two people become one
I can feel it
When two people become one

On my joining day
A guy in a black polo
Never left my mind

His smile makes my day
Whenever we’re together
I can’t help but fall

Little did I know
He will be holding my hand
For the years to come

First attempt in writing a haiku! The 5-7-5 syllabication is kinda challenging. I don’t know if “we’re” can be considered as one syllable. But nonetheless I feel proud of my work haha! ๐Ÿ˜…

Enjoy!!! C:

Goals and success.

True! 

To be honest I was a bit lost since the start of last year, I don’t have big goals career wise. I was like, “just go with the flow.” I know it’s not fully me to settle for that kind of mindset. ๐Ÿ˜… Like what a saying goes, “only dead fish goes with the flow.” 

Sooo 2016, game face on. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป

Falling Slowly – Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova

I don’t know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can’t react
And games that never amount
To more than they’re meant
Will play themselves out

[Chorus]
Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ll make it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can’t go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I’m painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It’s time that you won

[Chorus]
Take this sinking boat and point it home
We’ve still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You’ll make it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I’ll sing along

———————————–

This song is so beautiful… It reminds me of the time when feelings start to blossom once again. A time for new beginnings. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can listen to this song over and over until I fall asleep, the melody is so dreamy. โ˜บ๏ธ

Kris Allen’s version in American Idol was also nice. ๐Ÿ˜

Place I’d Rather Be.

After months of staying in Singapore, I decided to have an impromptu visit to the Philippines. I went home not because I’m feeling homesick or any. I went home because I want to surprise my family (they’re expecting me to go home on October hehe >:)), to catchup with friends, to shop (yay for cheaper goods), and most of all to hug and kiss Ashe my beloved cat. :3

It was my first time to go home since I arrived in SG last November. I wasn’t able to allot time to some of my friends but I’ll make it up to them the next time I return. ;_;

Below is the summary of my short stay captured in pictures:

  

Buying some snacks while waiting for our flight @Changi International Airport
 
Hello Manila!
 
Guess who just cried… :))
  

Finally got a duplicate copy of Gid’s driver’s license.
Elmar’s lechon @Fishermall is the best. 3 thumbs up for this! ๐Ÿ˜
Someone just made his mom cry… No more surprises next time! =))
With my bestfriend… โ˜บ๏ธ
Dinner with college friends.
Traditional overnight @Josh’s condo. ๐Ÿ‘
With Stef, my twin… I really miss her. ๐Ÿ˜ญ
Overdue treat for Roland. ๐Ÿ˜ญ

   

With my Accenture bootcampmates. #teammagallanes

      

Hurray for new glasses. *nerd mode*
  
Chili’s molten lava cake craving satisfied!
  
Family. ๐Ÿ˜Š
  
Finally tried this. ๐Ÿ˜
  
Bowling… Haha I won! ๐Ÿ˜œ
    
Tres Marias! โ˜บ๏ธ
 
Ashe is famous! Loljk!
  
Sunrise on the way back.
  
Thank you for accompanying me… I really appreciate it, without you I won’t ride planes. ๐Ÿ˜Š #scaredycat
  As cliche as it may be there’s really no place like home. See you Philippines on October and December again. ๐Ÿ˜Š

See You Again.

Watched Furious 7 last night, still can’t get enough of the “For Paul” feels.ย T_T

This latest installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise didn’t only focus on the high-speed cars (yay for GTR *_*), but it also takes us on a emotional ride with the characters.

*drools*
*drools*

Warning spoilers ahead:ย 

“No matter where you are, whether it’s a quarter mile away, or halfway across the world, you’ll always be with me. And you’ll always be my brother.”

This quote from Dom wasย a certified tearjerker. You can hear the people in the cinema sniffing especially when Dom and Brian’s cars started to go on separate ways. The song at the ending made my seatmate cry. “See you again” by Wiz Khalifaย and Charlie Puthย gave justice to the Paul tribute.ย Below are the lyrics of the song.

————————–

It’s been a long day without you my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

Damn who knew all the planes we flew
Good things we’ve been through
That I’ll be standing right here
Talking to you about another path I
Know we loved to hit the road and laugh
But something told me that it wouldn’t last
Had to switch up look at things different see the bigger picture
Those were the days hard work forever pays now I see you in a better place

How could we not talk about family when family’s all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gonna be with me for the last ride

It’s been a long day without you my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
when I see you again

First you both go out your way
And the vibe is feeling strong and what’s
Small turn to a friendship a friendship
Turn into a bond and that bond will never
Be broke and the love will never get lost
And when brotherhood come first then the line
Will never be crossed established it on our own
When that line had to be drawn and that line is what
We reach so remember me when I’m gone

How could we not talk about family when family’s all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gonna be with me for the last ride

So let the light guide your way hold every memory
As you go and every road you take will always lead you home

It’s been a long day without you my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

I’m really glad they didn’t kill Paul Walker’s character, instead they let him retire to be with his family… and we know it was the right ending for this movie. ๐Ÿ™‚

Three thumbs up for this film! Will definitely watch it again once I arrive in Manila. <:o)

Mouthful Of Forevers

I am not the first person you loved.You are not the first person I looked at with a mouthful of forevers. We have both known loss like the sharp edges of a knife. We have both lived with lips more scar tissue than skin. Our love came unannounced in the middle of the night.
Our love came when weโ€™d given up
on asking love to come. I think
that has to be part
of its miracle.

This is how we heal.
I will kiss you like forgiveness.
You
will hold me like Iโ€™m hope. Our arms
will bandage and we will press promises
between us like flowers in a book
.
I will write sonnets to the salt of sweat
on your skin. I will write novels to the scar
of your nose. I will write a dictionary
of all the words I have used trying
to describe the way it feels to have finally,
finally found you
.

And I will not be afraid
of your scars.

I know sometimes
itโ€™s still hard to let me see you
in all your cracked perfection,
but please know:
whether itโ€™s the days you burn
more brilliant than the sun
or the nights you collapse into my lap
your body broken into a thousand questions,
you are the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
I will love you when you are a still day.
I will love you when you are a hurricane.

 

– Clementine von Radics

I really love this poem. ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope I can write something as beautiful as this, I’ll try composing one during my spare time. ๐Ÿ˜€
