Unwritten

Staring at the blank page before you
Open up the dirty window
Let the sun illuminate the words
That you could not find
Reaching for something in the distance
So close you can almost taste it
Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in
No one else, no one else
Can speak the words on your lips
Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins
The rest is still unwritten

[Natasha Bedingfield. Unwritten]

Hand Held High

Turn my mike up louder I got to say something
Light weights step to the side when we come in
Feel it in your chest the syllables get pumping
People on the street they panic and start running

Words on loose leaf sheet complete coming
I jump in my mind and summon the rhyme, I’m dumping
Healing the blind I promise to let the sun in
Sick of the dark ways we march to the drum and

Jump when they tell us that they wanna see jumping
Fuck that I wanna see some fists pumping
Risk something, take back what’s yours
Say something that you know they might attack you for

Cause I’m sick of being treated like I have before
Like it’s stupid standing for what I’m standing for
Like this war’s really just a different brand of war
Like it doesn’t cater the rich and abandon poor

Like they understand you in the back of the jet
When you can’t put gas in your tank
These fuckers are laughing their way to the bank and cashing the cheque
Asking you to have compassion and have some respect

For a leader so nervous in an obvious way
Stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay
And the rest of the world watching at the end of the day
In their living room laughing like “what did he say?”

Amen

In my living room watching but I am not laughing
Cause when it gets tense I know what might happen
World is cold the bold men take action
Have to react or get blown into fractions

Ten years old it’s something to see
Another kid my age drugged under a jeep
Taken and bound and found later under a tree
I wonder if he had thought the next one could be me

Do you see the soldiers they’re out today
They brush the dust from bullet proof vests away
It’s ironic at times like this you pray
But a bomb blew the mosque up yesterday

There’s bombs in the buses, bikes, roads
Inside your market, your shops, your clothes
My dad he’s got a lot of fear I know
But enough pride inside not to let that show

My brother had a book he would hold with pride
A little red cover with a broken spine
On the back, he hand-wrote a quote inside
When the rich wage war it’s the poor who die

Meanwhile, the leader just talks away
Stuttering and mumbling for nightly news to replay
And the rest of the world watching at the end of the day
both scared and angry like “what did he say?”

With hands held high into the sky so blue,
As the ocean opens up to swallow you.

Be Still

Lagunya mellow-mellow gitu, enak deh. Eeh, ternyata.. Liriknya buat ‘ngajak balikan.. Haha..

Far, away from it all
you and me with no one else around
a brand new start
is all we need
to mend these hearts
back to the beginning

Be still
Let it go

Before we lost hope
When we still touched and love wasn’t so hard

Be still
I already know

Foolish one with the smile
You don’t have to be brave
Every time we fall down
But we’re falling from grace
I’ll gladly climb your walls if you’ll meet me halfway

Slow, slow it down
Why do we run, we’re missing so much babe
Just lay in my arms for a while

Be still
We should’ve known

Foolish one with the smile
You don’t have to be brave
I’ll gladly climb your walls
If you’ll meet me halfway
Every time we fall down
But we’re falling from grace
Here’s my hand and my heart
It’s yours to take

Be still

All of my life

[love this love song]

Time
I’ve been passing time
watching trains go by
All of my life
Lying on the sand
watching seabirds fly
Wishing there would be
someone waiting home for me

Looking back as lovers
go walking past
All of my life
Wondering how they met
and what makes it last
If I found the place
would I recognize the face?

So many quiet walks to take
So many dreams to wake
And we’ve so much love to make
I think we’re gonna need some
Maybe all we need is time

I’ve been saving love songs
and lullabies
And there’s so much more
No one’s ever heard before

Something’s telling me it might be you
Yeah, it’s telling me it must be you
And I’m feeling it’ll just be you
All of my life

Together

it doesn’t matter how far apart we are now
you can add up all the miles in between
if you take a good look all around now
all you see is you and me
when i look at myself in the mirror
i see you standing there smiling at me
and i’m right back at the beginning
lost inside this memory
i won’t ever let go, all that i want to hold onto

doesn’t matter how long that it takes you
cuz i’ll always be right by your side
and weven when darkness awaits you
i’ll be there to be your light
it’s a hard lonely road
when you’re standing outside in the cold

sometimes it’s hard to learn to let go
life always knows the right moments to show you what you needed

that we belong together
like the moon and stars and midnight
we’ll be strong forever
cuz we belong together
