A Winnie The Pooh Flashback


Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends debuted on NBC...

So I was just browsing my page when I caught the post title of blog buddy Eliz.  I checked it out and I was transported to my high school days, spending time with my friends sharing laughter and good vibes.  So please check out her blog here.

To show my gratitude, I’m sharing the lyrics of one particular song that ran through my mind while reading her post.   I got the lyrics from this site.

(Too bad though I couldn’t upload the music).

Return to Pooh Corner
Kenny Loggins and Amy Grant

Christopher Robin and I walked along
Under branches lit up by the moon
Posing our questions to Owl and Eeyore
As our days disappeared all too soon

But I’ve wandered much further today than I should
And I can’t seem to find my way back to the wood

So help me if you can, I’ve got to get back
To the House at Pooh Corner by one
You’d be surprised, there’s so much to be done

Count all the bees in the hive
Chase all the clouds from the sky
Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh

Winnie the Pooh doesn’t know what to do
Got a honey jar stuck on his nose
He came to me asking help and advice
From here no one knows where he goes

So I sent him to ask of the Owl if he’s there
How to loosen a jar from the nose of a bear

Help me if you can, I’ve got to get back
To the House at Pooh Corner by one
You’d be surprised, there’s so much to be done

Count all the bees in the hive
Chase all the clouds from the sky
Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh

It’s hard to explain how a few precious things
Seem to follow throughout all our lives
After all’s said and done I was watching my son
Sleeping there with my bear by his side

So I tucked him in, I kissed him and as I was going
I swear that the old bear whispered, “Boy, welcome home”

Believe me if you can, I’ve finally come back
To the House at Pooh Corner by one
What do you know, there’s so much to be done

Count all the bees in the hive
Chase all the clouds from the sky
Back to the days of Christopher Robin
Back to the ways of Christopher Robin
Back to the days of Pooh

——

Hope you enjoyed it!

The Saltwater Room


Been feeling stressed out lately.  Good thing I have music to turn to during these times.  One particular song I enjoy listening to is The Saltwater Room by Owl City.  There’s something about the song’s arrangement that just soothes my frazzled nerves.  Thanks to Adam Young for creating Owl City.

The Saltwater Room
Owl City

I opened my eyes
last night and saw you in the low light
Walking down by the bay, on the shore, staring up at the planes that aren’t there anymore
I was feeling the night grow old and you were looking so cold
Like an introvert, I drew my over shirt
Around my arms and began to shiver violently before
You happened to look and see the tunnels all around me
Running into the dark underground
All the subways around create a great sound
To my motion fatigue: farewell
With your ear to a seashell
You can hear the waves in underwater caves
As if you actually were inside a saltwater room

Time together is just never quite enough
When you and I are alone, I’ve never felt so at home
What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
We need time, only time
When we’re apart whatever are you thinking of?
If this is what I call home, why does it feel so alone?
So tell me darling, do you wish we’d fall in love?
All the time, all the time

Can you believe that the crew has gone and wouldn’t let me sign on?
All my islands have sunk in the deep, so I can hardly relax or even oversleep
I feel as if I were home some nights when we count all the ship lights
I guess I’ll never know why sparrows love the snow
We’ll turn off all of the lights and set this ballroom aglow

Time together is just never quite enough
When you and I are alone, I’ve never felt so at home
What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
We need time, only time
When we’re apart whatever are you thinking of?
If this is what I call home, why does it feel so alone?
So tell me darling, do you wish we’d fall in love?
All the time, all the time

Sexy Naughty Bitchy


It’s one lazy November 1.  Or maybe it’s just me who’s lazy.

Anyway, I’m currently keeping in tune with this song by Tata Young from her I Believe album.

 

I Believe

 

Sexy Naughty Bitchy

Tata Young

I pick all my skirts to be a little too sexy
Just like all of my thoughts they always get a bit naughty
When I’m out with my girls I always play a bit bitchy
Can’t change the way I am sexy naughty bitchy me

Chorus:
I’m the kind of girl that girls don’t like
I’m the kind that boys fantasize
I’m the kind that your momma and your daddy were afraid you’d turn out to be like
I may seem unapproachable but that’s only to the boys who don’t have the
Right approach or ride that makes a girl like me wanna hop in and roll

People think it’s intimidating when a girl is cool with her sexuality I’m a 180 to the stereotype girls like staying home and being innocent

[Chorus]

My mouth never takes a holiday
I always shock with the things I say
I was always the kid in school who turned up to each class bout an hour late and when it came to the guys I’d lay, I’d always pick the ones who won’t figure out that I am clearly a rebel to the idea of monogamy

People think it’s intimidating when a girl is cool with her sexuality I’m a 180 to the stereotype girls like staying home and being innocent

[Chorus]

Sexy… naughty… bitchy…me

People think it’s intimidating when a girl is cool with her sexuality I’m a 180 to the stereotype girls like staying home and being innocent

[Chorus]

I like all of my shorts to be a little too shortly
Unlike all of my guys I like them tall with money
I love all of my nights to end a little bit nasty
Can’t change the way I am sexy naughty bitchy me

I pick my skirts to be sexy
Just like my thoughts a bit naughty
When I’m out with my girls …bitchy
Can’t change I am
Sexy naughty bitchy me

The Middle


One song that perks me up in days that make me feel down in the dumps.  The Middle by Jimmy Eat World in the album Bleed American.  I love playing this as well in Rockband.

Bleed American

The Middle

Jimmy Eat World

Hey, don’t write yourself off yet
It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on.
Just try your best, try everything you can.
And don’t you worry what they tell themselves when you’re away.

It just takes some time, little girl you’re in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).

Hey, you know they’re all the same.
You know you’re doing better on your own, so don’t buy in.
Live right now.
Yeah, just be yourself.
It doesn’t matter if it’s good enough for someone else.

It just takes some time, little girl you’re in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).
It just takes some time, little girl you’re in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).

Hey, don’t write yourself off yet.
It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on.
Just do your best, do everything you can.
And don’t you worry what the bitter hearts are gonna say.

It just takes some time, little girl you’re in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).
It just takes some time, little girl you’re in the middle of the ride.
Everything (everything) will be just fine, everything (everything) will be alright (alright).

Hold Your Dream


I was thinking earlier on how a person, regardless of age, can still learn new things every day.  There is always an endless supply of things to discover in the world, a source of wonderment in every nook and cranny awaiting its notice.  Maybe because of its countlessness, people just direct their attention to those easily seen for their convenience.  Most often, letting go of their dreams just to belong, to fit in, and to be on stable ground (financially).

There’s nothing wrong with that.  I’m guesing that it gets the best in all of us to have a foothold in this fast-paced world.  But, there are times, we revisit our dreams deeply hidden in the realms of our subconscious hoping to be reawakened.

Anyway, here’s one song from Fame the movie that I find very inspiring in some of my dark days.  I got to watch it once with a few of my friends and I can say, if not for the lyrics, then the voices of the artists would truly amaze you.  You can watch the video of the final performance in the movie here.

Hold Your Dream
Fame Cast

Countless hours of learning more
Countless hours of knowing less
Can’t look behind you you have to look ahead

So many doubts running through your mind
All the excuses don’t have the time
All the rejection you have to leave behind

Leave it all behind

Hold your dreams
Don’t ever let it go
Be yourself
And let the world take notice

You’ll find strength
When people bring you down
They will see
If you will only, only believe

Someway, Somehow (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Don’t give up now (Don’t give up)
Don’t be afraid to succeed (To succeed, yeah)

Someway, somehow (Come on, everybody)
The time is right now (It’s our time, yeah)
Don’t be afraid to succeed (To succeed, yeah! )

Hold your dreams
Don’t ever let it go
Be yourself
And let the world take notice

You’ll find strength
When people bring you down
They will see
If you will only, only believe.

St. Elmo’s Fire


I didn’t know that the instrumental piece I’ve been meaning to look for was a title I’ve browsed over for quite sometime.  If it wasn’t for the primer of the concert of David Foster last night, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to wiki it and find out what it was.

So what am I talking about?  It’s the love theme from “St. Elmo’s Fire“.  I got the chance to listen to the David Foster along with Kenny G version.  And I must say, it’s just soothing to the ears.  I can’t describe exactly what feelings are evoke from me in hearing this song.  I don’t know the story of St. Elmo’s Fire but the music is enough for me to be interested in watching the film.  Maybe I’ll get a copy of it.

Anyway, if you want to listen to the music, click this 08 Love Theme from ‘St. Elmo’s Fire’.mp3“>link.

Misery


Here’s one song whose beat defies it’s lyrics. So upbeat.

Misery
Maroon 5

Oh yeah
Oh yeah
So scared of breaking it
But you won’t let it bend
And I wrote two hundred letters
I won’t ever send
Somehow it is cut so much
Deeper then they seem
You’d rather cover up
I’d rather let them be
So let me be
And I’ll set you free

[CHORUS]
I am in misery
There ain’t no other
Who can comfort me
Why won’t you answer me?
Your silence is slowly killing me
Girl you really got me bad
You really got me bad
I’m gonna get you back
Gonna get you back

Your salty skin and how
It mixes in with mine
The way it feels to be
Completely intertwined
It’s not that I didn’t care
It’s that I didn’t know
It’s not what I didn’t feel,
It’s what I didn’t show
So let me be
And I’ll set you free

[CHORUS]
I am in misery
There ain’t no other
Who can comfort me
Why won’t you answer me?
Your silence is slowly killing me
Girl you really got me bad
You really got me bad
I’m gonna get you back
Gonna get you back

Say your faith is shaken
You may be mistaken
You keep me wide awake and
Waiting for the sun
I’m desperate and confused
So far away from you
I’m getting here
Don’t care where I have to go

Why do you do what you do to me, yeah
Why won’t you answer me, answer me yeah
Why do you do what you do to me yeah
Why won’t you answer me, answer me yeah

[CHORUS]
I am in misery
There ain’t no other
Who can comfort me
Why won’t you answer me?
Your silence is slowly killing me
Girl you really got me bad
You really got me bad
I’m gonna get you back
Gonna get you back

Stuttering


I’m stuttering…

Nah… not in talking, but the song.  Sharing with you the lyrics of Mario’s Stuttering from his album D.N.A.

D.N.A.

Stuttering

Mario

(3x):
I’m stuttering,
Oh oh oh oh oh.

I can’t believe it babe,
You got me disarrayed.
I stand up, end up,
It’s like I’m stuck in place.
I go to speak my mind,
Forgetting what to say.
You’re the only one
Who makes me feel this way.
So at the most,
Baby we might play the silent game
Catch each other’s eye again.
But that’s where it ends.
Until you ask me my name
And I feel like a kid again.
It’s not clear and, I meet again
But I’m so gone.

I don’t even know
If I can even be me.
Cause it’s so hard to be me
When you’re next to me.
If I could say so,
I’d say what I’m feeling.
But I can say so,
My lips just tremble.
I’m stuttering,
Oh oh oh oh oh.
I’m stuttering,
Oh oh oh oh oh.
I’m stuttering,
Oh oh oh oh oh.
What’s happening to me,
I keep stuttering.

I wanna conversate,
Tell you how I see your face.
It’s so me, it’s lovely,
That’s exactly what I’d say.
But I’m running out of time
Cause my words are fumbling.
There’s no way
I could turn and walk away.
So at the most
Baby we might play the silent game,
Catch each other’s eye again.
But that’s where it ends.
Until you ask me my name
And I feel like a kid again.
It’s not clear and, I meet again (?)
But I’m so gone.

I don’t even know
If I can even be me.
Cause it’s so hard to be me
When you’re next to me.
If I could say so,
I’d say what I’m feeling.
But I can say so,
My lips just tremble.
I’m stuttering,
Oh oh oh oh oh.
I’m stuttering,
Oh oh oh oh oh.
(Don’t you hear me stuttering)
I’m stuttering,
Oh oh oh oh oh.
What’s happening to me,
I keep stuttering.

And I know what I need
Is to say what I need.
And possibly
This could be
One of my dreams
(Yeah yeah baby)

(X2)
I don’t even know
If I can even be me.
Cause it’s so hard to be me
When you’re next to me.
If I could say so,
I’d say what I’m feeling.
But I can say so,
My lips just tremble.
I’m stuttering,
Oh oh oh oh oh.
I’m stuttering,
Oh oh oh oh oh.
I’m stuttering,
Oh oh oh oh oh.
What’s happening to me,
I keep stuttering

Rumors


Here’s one song that’s really good applicable for people who just LOVE making it their business to butt-in on other people’s business.

Rumors
Lindsey Lohan

Saturday, stepping into the club
The music makes me wanna tell the DJ, tune it up
I feel the energy all around
And my body can't stop moving to the sound

But I can tell that you're watching me
And you're probably gonna write what you didn't see
Well, I just need a little space to breathe
Can you please respect my privacy

Why can't you just let me do
The things I wanna do
I just wanna be me
I don't understand
Why would you wanna bring me down
I'm only having fun
I'm gonna live my life (but not the way you want me to)

[chorus]
I'm tired of rumors starting
I'm sick of being followed
I'm tired of people lying
Saying what they want about me
Why can't they back up off me
Why can't they let me live
I'm gonna do it my way
Take this for just what it is

Here we are, back up in the club
People taking pictures
Don't you think they get enough
I just wanna be all over the floor
And throw my hands up in the air to a beat like (what)

I've gotta say respectfully
I would love it if you would take the cameras off of me
Cause I just want a little room to breathe
Can you please respect my privacy

Why can't you just let me do
The things I wanna do
I just wanna be me
I don't understand why
Would you wanna bring me down
I'm only having fun
I'm gonna live my life (but not the way you want me to)

[chorus]
I'm tired of rumors starting
I'm sick of being followed
I'm tired of people lying
Saying what they want about me
Why can't they back up off me
Why can't they let me live
I'm gonna do it my way
Take this for just what it is

I just need to free my mind (my mind)
Just wanna dance and have a good time (good time)

I'm tired of rumors (rumors)
Followed (followed, followed, followed, followed, followed)
What they want of me
Why can't they (they, they, they, they, they) let me live
Take this for just what it is

[chorus] ×2
I'm tired of rumors starting
I'm sick of being followed
I'm tired of people lying
Saying what they want about me
Why can't they back up off me
Why can't they let me live (live)
I'm gonna do it my way
Take this for just what it is

I’m needing a little bit of upbeat music to drown out my worries right now.   This song seems to work for me as of the moment.

Dynamite
Taio Cruz

I came to dance, dance, dance, dance
I hit the floor
‘Cause that’s my, plans, plans, plans, plans
I’m wearing all my favorite
Brands, brands, brands, brands
Give me space for both my hands, hands, hands, hands
You, you
Cause it goes on and on and on
And it goes on and on and on

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes
Saying AYO
Gotta let go
I wanna celebrate and live my life
Saying AYO
Baby, let’s go

‘Cause we gon’ rock this club
We gon’ go all night
We gon’ light it up
Like it’s dynamite
Cause I told you once
Now I told you twice
We gon’ light it up
Like it’s dynamite

I came to move, move, move, move
Get out the way me and my crew, crew, crew, crew
I’m in the club so I’m gonna do, do, do, do
Just drop the phone, came here to do, do, do, do

Yeah, yeah

Cause it goes on and on and on
And it goes on and on and on

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes
Saying AYO
Gotta let go
I wanna celebrate and live my life
Saying AYO
Baby, let’s go

‘Cause we gon’ rock this club
We gon’ go all night
We gon’ light it up
Like it’s dynamite
Cause I told you once
Now I told you twice
We gon’ light it up
Like it’s dynamite

I’m gonna take it all out
I’m gonna be the last one standing
I’m alone and all I
I’m gonna be the last one landing
‘Cause I, I, Believe it
And I, I, I
I just want it all
I’m gonna put my hands in the air
Hands in the air
Put your hands in the air

I throw my hands up in the air sometimes
Saying AYO
Gotta let go
I wanna celebrate and live my life
Saying AYO
Baby, let’s go

‘Cause we gon’ rock this club
We gon’ go all night
We gon’ light it up
Like it’s dynamite
Cause I told you once
Now I told you twice
We gon’ light it up
