Lyrics: Before The Storm - Nick Jonas ft Miley Cyrus





Yeah
Woah

Miley:
I know this isn't what I wanted
I never thought it'd come this far
Just thinking back to where we started
And how we lost all that we are

Nick:
We were young and times were easy
But I could see it's not the same
I'm standing here but you don't see me
I'd give it all for that to change
And I don't want to lose her
Don't wanna let her go

Miley:
I'm standing out in the rain
I need to know if it's over
Cause I will leave you alone

Nick:
Flooded with all this pain
Knowing that I'll never hold her

Both:
Like I did before the storm (yeah)
Before the storm

Nick:
With every strike of lightning

Miley:
Comes a memory that lasts

Both:
And not a word is left unspoken
As the thunder starts to crash

Miley:
Maybe I should give up

Miley:
I'm standing out in the rain
I need to know if it's over
Cause I will leave you alone

Nick:
Flooded with all this pain
Knowing that I'll never hold her
Like I did before the storm

Miley:
Trying to keep the lights from going out

Both:
And the clouds from ripping out my broken heart
We always say
A heart is not a whole
Without the one who gets you through the storm

Standing out in the rain
Knowing now that's it really over
Please don't leave me alone
I'm flooded with all this pain,
knowing that I'll never hold you
Like I did before the storm

Yeah
Like I did before
The storm...


Toby: Awww... Nick and Miley together again... singing!! Haha.. They performed this in Dallas last Saturday for Jonas Brothers' concert tour. Anyway, it's a 'bitter'sweet love song... i like it and its lyrics..

Trivia: Miley & Nick dated for 2 years before they broke up at the end of 2007. Nick then was reportedly dated Selena Gomez, Disney Channel's star while Miley was linked with Justin Gaston, a pop star. When both were single again this year, Nick and Miley were seen jet-skiing together on June 9, where Miley was filming her new movie, The Last Song. Miley reportedly informed that both of them are 'reconnected'. It was then implied by Joe Jonas that the two are back together during an interview for Larry King Live last Thursday.




Ahhh... young love... <3>



Lyrics: Til I'm Blue





David Cook - Declaration Tour - Del Mar, Ca 6-18-09


Til I'm Blue


Where we be, we've come so far
Where did I go astray from you?

When they put me in the ground, I want you to be there waiting
With your hands just as cold as mine, we could rest for a while
Would you follow me to heaven? Would you follow me to hell?
Would you leave this world for me & a wooden coat?

Where we be, we've come so far
Where did I go astray from you?
Where we be, we've come so far
I think I'll just hold my breath ‘til I'm blue

When there's no one else around, we could be together
With my hands in your pockets I'm reading your diary
We won't make a sound as long as they won't let us
Maybe the truth will illuminate the way to be, the way to be

When I know, when I know, when I know something's gone wrong
I look to the crowd
And I see faces, faces, guiding me back home
Faces, telling me where to go

Where we be, we've come so far
Where did I go astray from you?
Where we be, we've come so far
I think I'll just hold my breath ‘til I'm blue

(We've come so far)
(We've come so far)
(We've come so far)
(We've come so far)

‘Til I'm blue
(We've come so far)
(We've come so far)
‘Til I'm blue

(We've come so far)
(We've come so far)
(We've come so far)
(We've come so far)


Note: Til I'm Blue - Cover of a MidWest Kings (MWK) song from the Judging A Bullet CD. I'm falling for this song!!! Yes, partly coz it has the word Blue on the title... hahaha... and check out this pic of David wearing Blue tie at his next concert. Blue does looks good on him!! Oh, and the lyrics' awesome!!

In Search of the Kings



I was introduced to a band - Kings of Leon - by Ain in April this year and i am now officially a fan!

Whenever i listen to new music/bands/singers, few things i will focus on - music arrangement, lyrics - how connected they are with my life experience, how well the vocal blends with the music, sometimes how well the singers/bands are connecting with their fans, and how hardworking they are in terms of producing/singing their music/songs. Last but not least, how well they brings themselves to the public and how good looking they are, is a bonus.

I listen to all types of music, but only those who have the list above will definitely have my support entirely. Support here means - going to their shows/concerts/appearances, buying their albums/records - old or new, joining their fanclubs and their activities.



'Only by the Night' album cover (US)



So when Ain incredibly potrayed Kings of Leon as the band that she won't say never to, i hypnotisingly dragged myself to the net to find out more about these Southern Kings. I listened to their music through MP3s and YouTubes, I even bought the Rolling Stones issue when they were the cover (Feb 19th issue) and less than a week later, i bought their fourth studio album 'Only by the Night' which was released on September 19th, 2008.

Wow! I am hooked by Caleb's vocals - i agree with you, Ain - it was unique and attention-grabbing kind of vocals that you want to listen to, over and over again and amazed by it. And you will just forever love that voice, in time.

Few songs that i thought are remarkable - 'Sex on Fire', 'Revelry', 'Use Somebody' (these 3 singles are out already), and i lurvvveee '17' and 'Closer'. Next coming single will be Notion and its music video was just recently premiered on June 2nd at their official MySpace.

Visit their Official Websites for more info. It was an incredible website - complete with Fan Forum/Community, Official Merchandise Store, Tour/Appearances dates, bio, photos & videos of them and their music, and other activities for fans to involve.


No wonder they are now one of the most successful band internationally.


P/S: I might be going to their show this Fall. So wait for my review!! Yeahooo..

KL Relay for Life 2009 – Passing David Cook’s Strength

No, we were not passing the baton at the Relay, but we were passing David’s incredible, unbelievable strength that he has till this day, to get through difficult times when he lost his brother, Adam Cook, to a brain cancer on May 2nd recently.

His strength was clearly and evidently portrayed in this video (wait till 2:30 when he made the heartbreaking announcement) – taken during Race of Hope, May 3rd, few hours after David heard of his brother’s passing.



And that’s why I was at this Relay, if anyone asked.

I was with Ain, Phui San, Kavi, Teri & kids, and Kath at the Relay - Amazing individuals/WordNerds (not forgetting Roxy & Awalia, who couldn’t join us) who I’d treasure my whole life, no matter how different we are, and I know it’s all because of that ‘Jembalang’ – David, that is. LOL!!

Few highlights of the Relay:-


WordNerds Mini Booth
We set up a mini booth displaying our banners – and a lot – I mean – a LOT of people stopped by as they were curious and few ‘shocked’ David’s fans were evident as well. They were glad that they got to know about Analog Heart, which we distributed for free.


The Luminaria
A luminaria is a small bag filled with sand holding a small candle. When the candle is lit, the luminaria casts a warm, golden glow. PS & Ain bought a few to support David & honor Adam Cook. See them, as above.


The Relay
We took turns to run the lapse as it was on-going for 16 hours (6pm till 10am). Nick (Teri’s son) ran the most lapses amongst us (40++). Congrats, Nick. The amazing thing was, all of us woke up as early as 6.30am and ran, together with our banners!!

The Closing
The best moment was when the DJ put on Declaration, A Daily AntheM and part of Bar-Ba-Sol while we were running. Woohooo…

Err.. Anyway, few people thought we were from cooks association. (LOL!!)
