David Cook's Songs Snippets



idol chatter

David Cook fans are all abuzz today.

Someone discovered 30-second snippets of 11 songs many fans had not heard before on the Cherry Tree Lane Music Group Web site.

On Twitter, Starryskies80 declared that “it’s like Christmas morning for all of us.”

Referring to one of the new songs, — “Maybe Tonight,” I think — Makeover_girl says that a musician “is amazing when, through 29 seconds, a song can make you cry.”

LoveForeverKay plans to attend a David Cook concert tonight at the Allegan County Fair in Michigan, but was having trouble getting ready because all she can do is listen to the new snippets. And librarybunny says: “Holy moley … leak of unreleased David Cook song snippets has pretty much thrown my whole day out of whack.”

And everyone, I mean everyone, seemed to be begging for full-length versions of the songs.

Just by chance, I happened to be interviewing David Cook today since he’s headed this way to play the York Fair Friday night (go here for ticket information). So I had to ask about those new snippets.

David said they “weren’t meant for public consumption.” (In fact, they appeared to have been taken down by late this afternoon.)

But folks won’t have to wait too long for new David Cook music. Plans are under way for album number two.

Here’s what David had to say about the song snippets.

Check back later this week for the full interview, including what he said about plans for the new album.

Idol Chatter: So, I’m on Twitter today and it sounds like some new song snippets were released. Can you tell me what happened with that?

David Cook: “I don’t know that they were released. I think someone just found my publisher’s Web site, and they’ve got stuff up there.”

Chatter: So that wasn’t a planned release of any sort.

David: “No it wasn’t. Those songs are all kind of real rough demos, songs that may never see the light of day.”

Chatter: Were those songs that didn’t make the first album?

David: “Some of them, yeah. Some of them were songs from before Idol. Some of them were songs that didn’t make the cut for the record. Sort of a hodgepodge of a lot of things.”

Chatter: Have you checked Twitter to see what people are saying about them?

David: “I haven’t. I’m not sure I want to know. They’re really rough demos.” (Told that the reaction is unanimously positive, David laughs). “Well, I guess that’s a good thing.”

Chatter: One thing fans keep saying is, “Please, give us a deluxe version of the first album.” Any plans for anything along those lines?

David: “We’ve kind of had some casual talk about it, but so far, nothing firm has come up. I’m not opposed to it. I just want to make sure if it’s done, it’s done the right way. I imagine if it’s going to happen, the ball should be rolling in the next couple of weeks.”


Toby: Here's the lyrics of the songs, as mentioned. I managed to listen to the songs before it was removed from the site. No doubt David Cook's the best rock singer ever.


Remind Me

Lyrics:
Honesty may be the worst mistake she said to me today
But anyway it's hard to lie with water in my lungs
the songs already sung I just begun to say
remind me why do we make each other wrong just to make ourselves right
Beat each other down just to make it through another night
Don't mind me I'm only trying to figure out why I ever let you in remind me why
Satellites are watching over us running over stars to find out who we are
and who we both pretend to be we both have to decide
if it's us or you and me
remind me why do we make each other wrong to make ourselves right
beat each other down just to make it through another night
Don't mind me I'm only trying to figure out why I ever let you in remind me why
Remind me why do we make each other wrong just to ourselves right
beat each other down just to make it through another night
don't mind me I'm just trying to figure out why I ever let you in remind me why
honesty may be the worst mistake

Maybe Tonight

Lyrics:
Maybe tonight we could find the stars in your sky
cuz everybody needs help sometimes
so just close your eyes it'll be all right
everybody gets down on it all
concrete never braces the fall
all we need is someone to call to put world to sleep
are you overwhelmed are you outside yourself
waiting for relief
I take on everything if i could give you one reason to believe
maybe tonight maybe tonight
hand over heart I promise to put in the chart
you're everything i've wanted so far
so walk it all off before we go on
now the sun is fading to red
fifteen years of pictures in my head
I'll hang on every word you never said
in hopes that it would put my mind at ease
are you overwhelmed are you outside yourself
waiting for relief
I take on everything if i could give you one reason to believe
slowly we fade just when we got it made
we're grasping at straws to reach anything at all
are you overwhelmed are you outside yourself
waiting for relief
I take on everything if i could give you one reason to believe
are you overwhelmed are you outside yourself
waiting for relief
I take on everything if i could give you one reason to believe
maybe tonight maybe tonight maybe tonight maybe tonight

One Second To Change Your Life

Lyrics:
A hundred signs choices at every turn
hours stacking up with time to burn
this road will keep on going it only stops for you
it's up to you so make a move
it only takes one second to change your life
everything can turn
when you believe you lie and take turns tonight
one second to change your mind
finally breathe the air you've held inside
one second to change your life
million skies and all of them are fake
behind your eyes you got it made
every guess is young at heart but i've been right where you are
it's the only shape take your own today
it only takes one second to change your life
everything can turn when your believe your lie
and take turns tonight
one second to change your mind
finally breathe the air that you've held inside
one second to change your life
one second to change your life
one second just stand and stare
fingers crossed for the other side
when you cant stop moving with the other flying kind
it only takes one second to change your life
when you believe your lie and take turns tonight
one second to change your mind
finally breathe the air you've held inside
one second's too long
it only takes one second to change your life
it only takes one second to change your life
one second to change your mind
finally breathe the air you've held inside
one second to save your life

This Year

Lyrics:
Miles apart in the same room
Staring at nothing at all
This empty space is a vacuum filled with yesterdays
Counting cracks in the ceiling down to the paint on the wall
Falling on around our feeling that we like to win for three days
We were lost a long long time ago to reasons we may never know
But now I'm here open eyes open heart open ears for the seasons that you'll never show
so I'll let you know this year this year
you're dancing circles around me second time second place
you knock the wind outta my lungs
you have it fair to claim you own the open air
We were lost a long long time ago to reasons we may never know
But now I'm here open eyes open heart open ears for the seasons that you'll never show
So I'll let you know this year this year
for everything seem to me we're everything but harmony today
I'm screaming for the melody for all our ties and bonds
We were lost a long long time ago to reasons we may never know
We were lost a long long time ago to reasons we may never know
but now I'm here open eyes open heart open ears for the seasons that you'll never show
so I'll let you go this year

That's What I Get

Lyrics:
Hang up the phone and I walk out the door
I keep walking I don't know how long for
I ended up in a place I know I shouldn't have been
Such a pretty little thing to think you've got it right
Love on the thumb and death on the line
Shoulda turned and walked away before I asked your name
That's what I get for letting you in here
That's what I get for letting your sins here
You're a booze you're a scar you're a hollywood star
and I just can't seem to forget that's what I get
The pain ain't fake with your foot on the brake
so keep driving until you can't stay awake
you'll end up in a place you know you shouldn't have been
all the smiles and the lies all the kisses and crisises to keep me in pocket
just to keep me in line
shoulda turned and walked away when I saw your face
that's what I get for letting you in here
that's what I get for letting your sins here
You're a booze you're a scar you're a hollywood star
I just can't seem to forget
oh it's a crying shame I can't believe that you decieve
it's a losing game I can't seem to walk away
that's what I get for letting you in here
that's what I get for letting your sins here
You're a booze you're a scar you're a hollywood star
I just can't seem to forget
that's what I get
that's what I get for letting you in here
that's what I get for loving your sins here
You're a booze you're a scar you're a hollywood star
I just can't seem to forget
that's what I get

That's All

Lyrics:
I wake up with the sun morning's always good to me
I wrap my arms around nothing and everything
We are historically ordinary today
I don't find what's right I don't wanna know what's wrong
I just wanna love you til the end that's all
I don't waste a night I don't wanna write a song
I just wanna love you til the end love you til the end that's all
Patience wearing thin we have no time to stand and stare
Memories fill the space as we get lost inside the air
We're only slightly euphoric today
I don't wanna find what's right I don't wanna know what's wrong
I just wanna love you till the end that's all
I don't wanna waste a night I don't wanna write a song
I just wanna love you till the end oh the end that's all
I wake up with the sun morning's always good
I don't wanna find what's right I don't wanna know what's wrong
I just wanna love you til the end that's all
I don't wanna waste a night I don't wanna write a song
I just wanna love you til the end that's all
I don't wanna find what's right I don't wanna know what's wrong
I just wanna love you til the end that's all
I don't wanna waste a night I don't wanna write a song
I just wanna love you til the end love til the end that's all

Thanks For Everything (It's So Sad)

Lyrics:
You wanna how I've been doing
the answer's breaking through my skin
it's like you've opened up the floodgates
one word and I'm sinking back in
maybe you should save your lies
sorry won't work this time
no thank you I can fall to pieces on my own without you
no thank you you've already done enough to leave me torn in two
thanks to you thanks to you you
you're words are empty like your promises
they hurt then your silence
cuz if I don't have to hear all your lies
I can't get past all the dead in your eyes
but when you're telling me you're willing to change
I'm looking at you staying the same
no thank you I can fall to pieces on my own without you
no thank you you've already done enough to leave me torn in two
thanks to you
cuz I swear we had something
I swear that we had something
don't say our love was nothing
no thank you I can fall to pieces on my own without you
no thank you you've already done enough to leave me torn in two
thanks to you
no thank you no thank you no thank you

Strange And Beautiful

Lyrics:
Show me streets of fascination
show me love always pure
you see life in brilliant color
won't you be my guide?
show me bodies in perfect motion
show me a place where hearts have minds
somedays feel so overrated
somedays are so unkind
what does it take to get through a world that is strange and beautiful
what does it take to find you you're so strange and beautiful
strange and beautiful
show me hope in all it's glory
show me treasures I can't find
somedays are so underrated
somedays so unkind
what does it take to get through a world that is strange and beautiful
what does it take to find you you're so strange and beautiful
try to find me I been lost
comfort fading at what cost
what does it take to get through a world that is strange and beautiful
what does it take to find you you're so strange and beautiful
what does it take to get through a world that is strange and beautiful
what does it take to find you you're so strange and beautiful
strange and beautiful
strange and beautiful

Quietly

Lyrics:
This moment is scared straight from the start
Holding a losing hand but I can't seem to put down the cards
so tell me I'm wrong to scream you the same old song
You wrote some time ago now what deaf is you hang up the phone
they come to take me away today
I'll go if you want me to go
but I won't go quietly no matter what I do
you go like the beat of my heart
and I'm losing everything
quietly I'm falling apart
you're listening in to voices inside your head
they told you to cut me down find a new life send me away
so call me a fool loving you recklessly
gave up before I knew now I scream out with my face to the world
it seems you made up your mind today
so I'll go if you want me to go
but I won't go quietly no matter what I do
you go like the beat of my heart
and I'm losing everything
quietly I'm falling apart
I'll go if you want me to go
but I won't go quietly no matter what I do
you go like the beat of my heart
and I'm losing everything
I know it's what you want
so I'll go if you want me to go
but I won't go quietly no matter what I try to say
you don't want me to stay and I offer on to me
quietly I'm falling apart
falling apart

Remembering The Days

Lyrics:
Sun sneaks through curtains closed side
throwing just enough day to open up my eyes
if I try and find the words of what you mean to me
that just wouldn't be fair to all of the memories
if I stay inside my mind I can see you
Remembering the days I had there with you
Remembering the ways you always got me through
Rememering the good and the bad with no fear no regret
Everyday I had with you is a day I can't forget
day I can't forget
You knocked the wind right back into me just a broken soul in need of remedy
if I have a dime to pay I'd finally make the call
if I had the words to say I'd try and say them all
another night inside my mind just to see you
remembering the day I had there with you
remembering the ways you always got me through
remembering the good and the bad with no fear no regret
everyday I had with you is a day I can't forget
Your smile could light up the sky I carry your heart on the back of my eyes
for the last time in my life I felt alive
remembering the days I had there with you
remembering the ways you always got me through
remembering the good and the bad with no fear no regret
everyday I had with you is a day I can't forget
I can't forget day that I can't forget

Souvenir

Lyrics:
Hope you had a good time while you were here
Such a beautiful view for a beautiful girl this time of year
Now here we are looking back through wasted photographs
blank pages filling up our past
no it's not funny but all I can do is laugh
you can keep my heart the one you took when you walked away
you can keep my heart it's got no use here call it a souvenir
call it a souvenir
quite a trip that we never should've taken
I just can't believe how you've broken me since you ran away
now all you do is promise everything telling me you'll stay
so many signs i guess i missed it
you can keep my heart the one you took when you walked away
you can keep my heart it's got no use here call it a souvenir
call it a souvenir
so many pages that I gotta fill up so many lessons to learn about love
so many days so many ways
so many signs so many ways
all you got was my broken heart
hope you had a good time while you were here
you can keep my heart the one you took when you walked away
you can keep my heart it's got no use call it a souvenir
call it a souvenir
you can keep my heart you can keep my heart
you can keep my heart you can keep my heart
call it a souvenir

We're Only Honest When We're Sleeping

Lyrics:
You're a broken thing
Your cracks are showing through at your best attempts
At making nice with the world
So keep on dreaming
Cuz someday soon the thing that keeps you at bay will fade away
Or so I've heard

CHORUS:
We're only honest when we're sleeping
We're lying wide awake and dreaming
Wishing that we were someone else
This bed is cold as hell when you're lying next to me

It's a twisted game
A brief and off-repeating prose that never
Seems to resonate
Still to think of our blame
It's always on the heart that kept on beating
While the other pulled the blame

CHORUS

The ceiling paints a picture
And everything's a welcome work of art
Convince the chaos in the mirror
The lasting lipstick red

Trip to Milwaukee - Day 3


Monday - Kids went to school. Adam went early to his middle school with his bus. Ahnaf & Amin, accompanied by Papa, went by another bus to their elementary school. Asked Amin to snap few pictures of Wan (Papa). Papa was all excited to wear his sport shoes, as he claimed Lin Dan, Chong Wei and few other international badminton players wear the same shoe brand.


Went to accompany my sister to her Uni's Library. Abe'A, Mama, Papa and Sofea sent us there. The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is in Downtown of Milwaukee, and we got to see a glimpse of Lake Michigan. On their way back, Mama told me that Abe' A brought them to TJ Maxx, another cheap clothing store near Greendale, Milwaukee. Mom said lots of kids clothing, and i'm excited to visit them later on. There's actually lots of other cheap clothing store. Nana promised they will bring us there and seeing around Milwaukee town on Thursday, after her classes.

I'm all excited as i got to see new things and places inside the Library. Well, my sister did her readings on her coming classes and i just used sit there using her laptop to check updates on my Twitter, Facebook, Livejournals (yes i do have two accounts, one of it is obviously 'tobymiaw' but no i'm not going to reveal my other LJ account, haha - i did write fanfic with this account though - odd pairing!! Ha!), Blog, YahooMail, GossipCandy and etc etc.

Anyway, it was damn cold inside the library despite the great sunshine. We changes places, twice, because of that. Saw a couple of Nana's friends - Kak Maz and Kak Azrina. They were all very friendly and even invited me to their classes and house for buka puasa.

We went to UWM's Souvenir shop and i saw lots of thing that i wanna buy, but we were already late to catch our bus back to Greenfield. My sist used her Uni's ID to pay for the bus fare, and i had to pay $2. So damn sleepy in there.

Anyway, Nana's friend's husband were here to collect their things which we brought from Malaysia. Hmmm... wished they knew how much we have 'suffered' in bringing those things here. Whatever lah!! Things happened when they need to happen. We learnt our lesson.

Trip to Milwaukee - Day 2

This is a confession of a shoppaholic.

Went shopping at Walmart in Milwaukee. Gosh!! Lots of cheap things - clothes, home decor, shoes... definitely crazy to spend here!!! Feel like buying all things.. arghhh... i seriously need to attend rehab for shoppaholics!!! Haha...

Anyway, bought some clothes for me and some friends... i told Nana, that i will only give them to those who wished me before i went to US. Haha... wicked me. Bought some JoBros things for Marsya, my niece - Rolling Stones limited edition magz with JoBros as the cover, and a JoBros cover bag. She's gonna be thrilled! Haha.. Mama bought a nice cardigan and a jeans. Papa stayed at home with the kids. Still not in the mood to jalan2, he said.

Few of Nana's friends came to buka puasa with us. Nana made most delicious Chocolate Brownies with chocolate fudge toppings ever, using the instant ingredients. Gosh... i ate like, half of them... sooooooo yummy.... i definitely going to make those when i get back and make it my routine dish. Haha...
Mom made Bubur Lambuk and it was quite 'laku'!!

More shopping complex to explore in next few days!! Yeehhaarr...

Later..

Trip to Milwaukee - Day 1

Yeay!!! I'm finally here in Milwaukee... lepas dah berbulan planning / spending / booking / arguing / etc etc... at last, i'm reunited with my sister and her family. Welcome to land of Danny Gokey!! Haha.. Kak Lyn, my sist-in-law, my MAS-steward bro, Alai, sent us to the KLIA, as my big bro was able to make it. Papa had a scary moment as his fingers got cramped all of a sudden. He got better when we reached KLIA.

Anyway, i was actually nervous on going to the USA, especially when i heard a lot of not nice airport experience from a few different people who encountered different experiences. Scary at first, i was thinking, but then things got better when the people who's handling us were quite nice. So... thank God we and our baggages landed safely.

Papa saw one of his friends just as we checked in. So, lega sikit when we knew somebody on the same flight. and i discovered a lot of things about me, Papa and Mama too. Almaklumlah, this trip to the US is the first to us individually. Papa will easily gets panic when things were not done as he expected. Therefore, he will say something un-him and will think that he is always right. He and Mama forgot that i'm not 13 anymore. Mama, on the other hand, surprisingly backed me up whenever she thought that my opinion matters. In the end, we kinda tolerated each other's opinion. Well, mostly because i decided to accept Papa's opinion, eventhough i knew i was right.

So, back to the trip, we boarded to Stolkholm (transit) at Sept 12, 12.45pm (the actually boarding time - Sept 11, 11.59). We arrived at Stokholm slightly delayed, but not that delayed. I was frustrated that i wasn't able to touch Sweden's ground - as a formality of being inside Sweden - haha... Anyway, captured few pics at the Airport there.

In the flight, i was seated between Mama and a Chinese boy, Kevin (i heard all cabin crew called him that). Kevin, i thought was quite reserved. The cabin crew paid extra attention to him and even filled in few documentations for him. Basically, he just a passenger who didn't have to do anything except be a passenger who eat, drinks and waited for his destination. So, i made a conclusion that he must be some kind of a VIP's son or under Witness Protection Program (as if!! i watched too much tv, i guess). But then why he wasn't at the 1st class? Hmm...

Anyway, Swedish was good looking people. I thought so as i haven't seen any ugly people since i arrived in Stolkholm. Hey, did i mentione that i saw the biggest muffin i've ever seen and also the cutest Moose toys. I thought of buying them, but not enough time to change the currency ans it was sold in Kroner or Euro currency.

Oh yeah, me and my parents had the longest fasting time of our lives - more than 18hrs!!! Luckily MAS served the best food and we had our Sahur, just before we had a fasting marathon.

We arrive in Newark around 10.30am (US time). The officials there were very strict and we just followed their orders accordingly. I just wanted this process to be over as it did make me nervous. Anyway, we had to ensure all our baggages were checked in to our next connecting flight to Milwaukee - and it was the least favourite moment of the trip. In the end, i'm proud to say that we finally managed to board to Milwaukee with our own energy and sweat, no assistance offered. I was very concerned on my Dad and Mom's energy consumption as i didn't want them to get fatigue or anything of sorts. Since we booked the flight kinda late, so our seats were at the end of the cabin and it was just in front of the toilet. God!!!

Man, weren't we relieved when we saw Abe' A at Milwaukee's airport. I hugged Ahnaf, my nephew, tight, and i knew then that the scariest moment was over. I was so glad to see my sister at their home, my other nephews, Adam & Amin and my cutest niece ever, Sofea. Sofea is just, i would say, the remedy to all the nervous in the world.

I can't wait to explore Milwaukee and maybe Chicago, for now. And of course, the concert of Kings of Leon in Milwaukee, which i have booked the tickets months before. And Mom might want to go to Niagara Falls, so... wait for my next review! Will post the pix later!!

From Milwaukee with love,

toby
