Hoobastank – The Reason

December 14, 2013 at 10:49 pm (Music, Poetry)

I heard this on the way home. So I thought that I would share it with you all.
————————————
I’m not a perfect person
There’s many things I wish I didn’t do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I’ve found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

I’m sorry that I hurt you
It’s something I must live with every day
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
That’s why I need you to hear

I’ve found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

And the reason is you
And the reason is you
And the reason is you

I’m not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I’ve found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

I’ve found a reason to show
A side of me you didn’t know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you

Linkin Park – The Messenger

November 1, 2013 at 10:01 pm (Music, Poetry)

I wonder how I missed this one.
Just been listening to LP on YouTube.
This is rather emotional, imo.
—————————————-
When you feel you’re alone
Cut off from this cruel world
Your instinct’s telling you to run

Listen to your heart
Those angel voices
They’ll sing to you
They’ll be your guide
Back home

When life leaves us blind
Love keeps us kind
It keeps us kind

When you’ve suffered enough
And your spirit is breaking
You’re growing desperate from the fight

Remember you’re loved
And you always will be
This melody will bring you right
Back home

When life leaves us blind
Love keeps us kind
When life leaves us blind
Love keeps us kind

Ohhhhhh Ohhhhhhh!
Ohhhhhh Ohhhhhhh!
Ohhhhhh Ohhhhhhh!

Love The Way You Lie

November 21, 2012 at 7:42 pm (Music, Poetry)

This is rather strange, I usually don’t like music by either of the people on this track. But for some reason I like this.
Eninem and Rihanna
———————–

[Intro – Rihanna:]
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that’s alright because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

[Verse – Eminem:]
I can’t tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now it’s a steel knife in my windpipe
I can’t breathe but I still fight while I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right it’s like I’m in flight
High off of love, drunk from my hate,
It’s like I’m huffing paint and I love it the more I suffer, I suffocate
And right before I’m about to drown, she resuscitates me
She fucking hates me and I love it.
Wait! Where you going?
“I’m leaving you”
No you ain’t. Come back we’re running right back.
Here we go again
It’s so insane cause when it’s going good, it’s going great
I’m Superman with the wind at his back, she’s Lois Lane
But when it’s bad it’s awful, I feel so ashamed I snapped
Who’s that dude? I don’t even know his name
I laid hands on her, I’ll never stoop so low again
I guess I don’t know my own strength

[Chorus – Rihanna:]
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that’s alright because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

[Verse – Eminem:]
You ever love somebody so much you can barely breathe
When you’re with ’em
You meet and neither one of you even know what hit ’em
Got that warm fuzzy feeling
Yeah, them chills you used to get ’em
Now you’re getting fucking sick of looking at ’em
You swore you’d never hit ’em; never do nothing to hurt ’em
Now you’re in each other’s face spewing venom in your words when you spit them
You push, pull each other’s hair, scratch, claw, hit ’em
Throw ’em down, pin ’em
So lost in the moments when you’re in them
It’s the rage that took over it controls you both
So they say you’re best to go your separate ways
Guess if they don’t know you ’cause today that was yesterday
Yesterday is over, it’s a different day
Sound like broken records playing over but you promised her
Next time you show restraint
You don’t get another chance
Life is no Nintendo game
But you lied again
Now you get to watch her leave out the window
Guess that’s why they call it window “pain”

[Chorus – Rihanna:]
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that’s alright because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

[Verse – Eminem:]
Now I know we said things, did things that we didn’t mean
And we fall back into the same patterns, same routine
But your temper’s just as bad as mine is
You’re the same as me
But when it comes to love you’re just as blinded
Baby, please come back
It wasn’t you, baby it was me
Maybe our relationship isn’t as crazy as it seems
Maybe that’s what happens when a tornado meets a volcano
All I know is I love you too much to walk away though
Come inside, pick up your bags off the sidewalk
Don’t you hear sincerity in my voice when I talk
Told you this is my fault
Look me in the eyeball
Next time I’m pissed, I’ll lay my fist at the drywall
Next time? There won’t be no next time!
I apologize even though I know its lies
I’m tired of the games I just want her back
I know I’m a liar
If she ever tries to fucking leave again
Im’a tie her to the bed and set this house on fire
I’m just gonna

[Outro – Rihanna:]
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that’s alright because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

Iris – Goo Goo Dolls

July 8, 2012 at 9:17 pm (Music)

I’ve had this going round in my head for weeks, even though the radio station I listen to wouldn’t play it. So I don’t know where it came from. I believe that this is true for most of us, until we find that someone that we can be truely ourselves with.

And I don’t want the world to see me
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
When everything’s meant to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am

Watch / listen to it for yourself: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NdYWuo9OFAw

Les Paul… the guitar pioneer has died aged 94

August 14, 2009 at 8:56 am (Music)

Les Paul

Les Paul

Les Paul, the jazz guitarist and inventor who created one of the world’s most famous electric guitars, has died. He was 94.

The Gibson Les Paul is the instrument of choice for Paul McCartney, Slash and U2’s the Edge. It’s still a firm favourite with younger bands such as Gallows. Les Paul helped create the famous model in the 1952, along with designer Ted McCarty.

Born in Wisconsin in 1915, Paul turned an early obssession with music into a successful career as a jazz guitarist, playing with the likes of Nat King Cole and Bing Crosby.

In 1939, Paul built one of the first solid-body electric guitars, known as “The Log”, which prompted Gibson to approach him. Paul’s legacy stretches much further than his signature guitar, however. As an inventor, Paul pioneered many studio techniques including multitrack recording, which allowed musicians to record parts separately before mixing them together into a finished track.

Gibson president Dave Berryman said: “As the father of the electric guitar, he was not only one of the world’s greatest innovators but a legend who created, inspired and contributed to the success of musicians around the world.”

Paul reportedly died of complications from pneumonia at White Plains Hospital.

Becca and the Broken Biscuits

I’m rather surprised to be honest with you. my taste in Music recently has been loud and aggressive, rock, heavy rock, metal, heavy metal and nu metal.

So I was taken to a little quiet bar by some friends and image my surprise when I found I actually like the live music being played there.

Listen for yourself and see what you think – here
