David Archuleta - Mission Announcement//O Holy Night - SLC



Saw few tweets yesterday that David's going on a mission. In the initial discovery, I respected it as it is what he chose to do next in is life as a Christian.

As i continue to read the tweets that were coming non-stop about the announcement, i came to learn that he is going away FOR TWO YEARS. Without any news/tweets/singing/vlog.

I was dumbfounded. My heart was broken. I was in my office doing my daily work when my tears silently fell as i realized that i won't be hearing him performing live, i won't be watching him singing his songs via Youtube anymore FOR TWO YEARS!!!

My head hurt so much. As much sadness i felt, YESTERDAY (20 DECEMBER 2011) happened to be DAVID COOK's 29th birthday.

How am i supposed to be happy when my heart is breaking?

I am still sad till this moment. I can't really listen to his songs without crying. I know i am being ridiculous over this, but i have to find ways to overcome my sadness. I have to accept the fact that he is doing this to follow what his heart is meant to follow. I am proud of him as this is a huge thing to happen to a recording artist, or like they said, a career suicide.

But i don't believe that he is going to have a career suicide. I believe he is going to be a better person, a better singer and have a better life without regrets.

He is going to be AMAZING.

To David a.k.a Archie: I'm gonna miss you and your wonderful singing. I promise you that i will be right here waiting till your next amazing music coz i am your fan for life.

David Cook - Fade Into Me - Irving Plaza 12-09-2011




OMG i can't explain how beautiful this is, how amazing David sang his current single, "Fade Into Me" in his last show of the first leg of This Loud Tour 2011. He is expected to start the second leg February next year.

My tears sprung from my eyes, my heart sadly dropped, from the beautiful lyrics, from the beautiful singing, from the amazing David Cook.

My heart goes out to him, coz he deserves some recognition. And i know he won't stop fighting, he won't stop making beautiful, amazing music, till he gets it into the 'A' list. To me, he's already an A list artist ever since he won the American Idol 3 years back. He should've won a Grammy at least. He deserves an award, or lots of awards, bcoz of the true musician in him.

I know he's not perfect (i'm referring to 'those tumblr confessions' ~ whatever..). In fact, each one of us is not perfect. But David makes perfect lyrics, perfect music that touches lots of lonely hearts, lots of uninspired souls. And i believe he is changing to a better person. We've seen the person he was during the initial weeks of the American Idol 2008, but i have never seen that 'person' any longer. By the end of the season, he was totally a different person, a person America loves so much till this day. A musical Idol I love, till this day.

David today is a better person, i believe. A person who is living the dream he longed long ago. But i feel that with that, it comes with the decision to make his life a private one. I do respect his decision on this. I mean, he deserves to have a quiet, ordinary, happy life, ever since AI7. It's just that, since it's not every day that I (as a fan in Malaysia) see him on some roads or streets in US of A, I wish he shares some of his happiness he encountered while living his much-deserved life, physically, in front of our eyes. You know, i would love to see him falls in love one fine day, see him happily introduces his girlfriend/fiance/better-half to his fans. And his fans would love him still, no matter what happens. Among other things.

Being in-love was beautiful (i was once did). I know when David falls in love, or maybe if he's in love now, he would definitely make beautiful love songs and music. And to be able to share that beautiful feeling in his music, with us fans, is more than enough. I get that now. He shares his happiness, his life, through his songs. And I really thank David for that.

With David's music, things seem to get better. I would say his music is such a remedy for every 'sickness', every 'heartbreaks', every 'flaws'. I could never stop listening to his amazing voice and music. Ever. Just because.

Those who do not know who David is, please do listen to his voice/music, buy his albums, vote him in every poll, watch his music videos, requests his songs through every radio stations, follow every of his steps to success, every amazing shows he's giving to his loyal fans. You won't ever regret you met this amazing person named DAVID ROLAND COOK.

A Fan Review: Talihina Sky - The Story of KOL



I bought this DVD this afternoon, but I'm only watching this now, as I blog this. First, I'll quote the DVD summary description.

"TALIHINA SKY is the story of Kings of Leon, whose strict Pentecostal upbringing in Oklahoma and Tennessee preceded their unlikely transformation into one of the biggest rock bands in the world.

The film follows Nathan, Caleb, Jared and Matthew Followill back to Talihina, Oklahoma for their annual family reunion. This reunion serves as a catalyst to explore the band's roots and the difficulties they faced growing up. Home movies, childhood photos and revealing interviews with a wide variety of family members all illuminate how the band's creativity has been driven and informed by their unique background.

The story of Kings of Leon has been called the 'best band creation story in recent memory' and, for the first time, is being shared by the people who lived it."
 
I was introduced to this band by Ain, almost 3 years back, when we met for a David Cook fans meeting at Starbucks Bangsar one fine afternoon. And i am forever be grateful to her because of that.

The DVD is rated PG-13. Produced by Casey McGrath. Directed by Stephen C. Mitchell.

As PG-13 as it is (I won't tell ya which part by the way, but i tell ya it's plenty of 'em), some of the scenes were 'jaw-dropping', 'mind-boggling' and i could say, 'shocking'. Maybe because i am from a different background-religion-country. But what were shown in this documentary is fuckin' REAL. It's real fuckin' life, life of the Southeners.

The tears, the arguments, the discovery of so many things in every aspects of their lives, the religiously up-bringing, the struggle, the fighting of what's good and bad, what's considered hell/demon and heaven, and what transpire Kings of Leon as what they are now. It almost brought me to tears with some scenes of Caleb, Nathan and Jared's mom, BettyAnn Murphy, shared of her beliefs, her inner-self struggling, and her love for her 3 kings (as she calls them). Their dad, Ivan Leon Followill, i can't really explain his words. You gotta watch this video to know what's on his religious mind. But still, he loves them too.

What i love the most was how close their big family is. Since they were born, until now. It was clearly shown that family values are still displayed, in almost every family, especially the Followill's. There are also interviews with some of the important members of their family and i am very fascinated on how they communicate with each other. I don't have a big family, so watching them in the reunion was... let's just say i was fuckin' hooked.

KOL also showed who they really are, with or without girlfriends/wife or what-so-ever in this video. You know what, I feel pity for those so-called artists who are still thinking that if they show to world who their wife/girlfriends are, they are gonna lose their fan base. Just show your amazing music to the world and don't ever be afraid of who you are. If anyone is truly your fan, they are gonna accept and love you, good and bad, inside and out.

I am so proud of KOL as their fan, coz with their unique background and great musical talent, the managed to conquer the world. I should say they are the real International artist, as they managed to conquer the world first, then the US (local). I just don't understand why the US music industry just didn't get them and their music in the initial phase of their career. It was evidently showed in many concerts that the boys really appreciate the Europe fans, especially in the UK, as they 'got' them first. And that Europe fans are the ones who made them international, in my opinion. That was also could be the reason why most of their records were released first in the UK, then in US.

To those who are still in doubt of who Kings of Leon are and whether or not their music is great, please watch this documentary, and then you can comment without doubts.

Read one of the interviews of the Director here. Watch the movie preview here.

David Archuleta "Dream Sky High" Childrens Miracle Network Awards 10/22/...



Awww... Archie has finally left his teen image in this video.

I agree with what the MC said of Archie:
“Every child fell in love with this sweet young man whose voice is as big as his heart..”

Suddenly a thought came across my mind ~ I just thought it would be awesome if Pixar created a cartoon character based on Archie's personality and use Archie himself as the voice-over. I bet the movie will be a box-office one.


Just saying.

David Archuleta - Notice Me



I try to find the words when you walk by
words just cant explain the way i feel inside
my friends keep saying your untouchable
and i cant help feeling invisible

I'd give anything to catch your eye
so you could see me in a different light
tell me whats it gonna take
'cause I wish you would notice me
if you'd only give me just one chance
i could be the one, here i am
what's it gonna take to understand, wish you would notice me
notice, notice, notice me
notice, notice, notice me

You've got a light that never seems to fade,
I'm drawn to you and I can't look away
we come from different places, girl i know
but when two world collide it could be beautiful

I'd give anything to catch your eye
so you could see me in a different light
tell me whats it gonna take
'cause I wish you would notice me
if you'd only give me just one chance
i could be the one, oh here i am
what's it gonna take to understand, wish you would notice me
notice, notice, notice me
notice, notice, notice me

I wonder if you know how amazing you are,
you leave me breathless
you didn't even try but you've stolen my heart
and i don't want it back, i don't want it back

I'd give anything to catch your eye
so you could see me in a different light
tell me whats it gonna take
'cause I wish you would notice me
if you'd only give me just one chance
i could be the one, oh here i am
what's it gonna take to understand, wish you would notice me
notice, notice, notice me
notice, notice, notice me

Toby:

Love love love this song.

I love the feel i'm feeling when i listen to this song.

It's full of hope of being in love. I want that.

Isn't love grand?

Sara Bareilles - Gonna Get Over You




Awww... the last part was soooo cuuutee.. i love it.. cheeky Sara!! hihi..

Lyrics: Sara Bareilles - Gravity




Lyrics | Gravity lyrics


Truthfully i have never heard songs from "Little Voice". I did hear "Morningside" from a fandom, and i am hooked to Sara's voice from then on. Till now. Till "Kaleidoscope Heart".

I had tears in my eyes when i first listen to this song. It was when i visited my sister in Milwaukee last July, and i found out that Sara would be performing with Sugarland at Summerfest in Milwaukee. And i did go. With my sister. It was the best day of my trip to US. It was kinda a girls' day and me and my sister really enjoyed ourselves at Sara's concert and the Summerfest.


Video streaming by Ustream

"Gravity" really touched my heart as it was kinda a song about a woman grieving about her lost love. Yup, sounds familiar, right? Mine was about an unrequited love. A love that i couldn't nurture coz the other person doesn't feel the same way. It was like my heart was singing. Trying to tell that person that what her love to him did to her heart. It was a sad song. And i got connected to it right away coz it was the song of my heart, still grieving, i guess. That's right. I still am.

But i still believe in love. I'm still waiting for that love to find me. Maybe coz i'm done waiting.

Dammit, i'm not gonna cry.

O yes, i bought "Little Voice" yesterday.

This Loud Morning: Lyrics



Billboard.com Track by Track review by David Cook






"Circadian"
(David Cook, David Hodges, Neal Tiemann)

who's to say you're never wrong
who's to say that I'm not already gone
who's to say the time inside your head keeps running on and on and on

who is to say we'll make it through
I'm starting to believe that what we think is never true
who's to say the rhymes beside your bed 

will keep you warm when everything is getting colder
and I'm just holding on until it's over

mayday, somebody save me now
I'm closing my eyes 'cause once the sun rises,

it's out of my hands
it's out of my hands

who's to say this history
isn't only just some winter's distant memory
you can't escape this drying ink
the fall of who we are is getting closer
and I'm just holding on until it's over

mayday, somebody save me now
I'm cutting all ties from the world outside 'cause it's over my head
it's all coming undone and falling apart somehow
and I'm closing my eyes 'cause once the sun rises

it's out of my hands, oh, it's out of my hands

The light pulls me under and I keep on caving in

"Right Here, With You"
(David Cook, Greg Wattenberg, John Rzeznik, Ryan Star)

Everyone was watching you
As everything just slipped away
All they ever wanted was the light you gave them
You've always been the sweetest song
And even when the world went wrong
You never let the sun go down and fall to pieces
And I could never walk away with you here

If the sun stops burning and the world stops turning
I'll be right here with you
And if the sky keeps falling and the night keeps calling
I'll be right here with you
I'm on your side

I can see the way you hide
All the things you keep inside

But all you ever wanted was the light to save you
We can run away somehow
Take the night and tear it down
Never let the sun burn out
And fall to pieces

Nothing's gonna stop us now
'cause we were born to live forever

The tides will always change
The waves will always break
I will be here waiting all through time
Forever by your side
Our love will never die

"We Believe"
(David Cook, Julian Emery, James Lawrence Irvin)

In the night, we're all looking for a guiding light
We're all seeking something more than right

It must be there

Every day, we're all tryin' to find a better way
We're all hoping for someone to say
We're almost there

We believe
There's a reason that we're all here

That every doubt will disappear 
We believe
That tomorrow carries something new
And after everything that we've been through
We believe


In our time
If we hit a wall that we can't climb
And if we stumble at the finish line
We'll start again

Everyone
Every single person under the sun
Has a moment where they know they've won

But until then

In the power of hope
In the strength of peace
There's a way back home
Where the battles cease
 

A new world will grow
If we just believe
This is what we know 

This is what we need

 

"Fade Into Me"
(David Cook, Kevin Griffin, Jamie Houston)

All I feel now is the weight of the day
I need you with me to push it away
When we disappear into each other
Our colors appear and bleed into one

Fade into me, fade into you
The two of us melting together
Until we become something new
And we can escape
And watch the world chasing to find us
Both of us hidden from view,

if you
Fade into me
Fade into me

When I'm broken
You're the one thing I need
Uhh, like an ocean, I feel you crash over me

We disappear into each other
Our colors appear and bleed into one

Fade into me, fade into you
The two of us melting together
Until we become something new
We can escape
Watch the world chasing to find us
Both of us hidden from view, if you
Fade into me

Let go, fall in
And drown in the moment with me
Sinking 'til it's time to breathe

Fade into me, fade into you
The two of us melting together
Until we become something new
We can escape
Watch the world chasing to find us

Fade into me, fade into you
The two of us melting together
Until we become something new
And we can escape
Watch the world chasing to find us
Both of us hidden from view

if you fade into me
Fade into me



"Hard To Believe"
(David Cook, David Hodges, Jess Cates, Lindy Robbins)

Stay, tell me the story again
How it all fell apart in the end
Just when you thought you were too far gone
you're too far gone

Wait, maybe the pieces don't fit
But when did you lose innocence?
And when did you find that you can't hold on
You can't hold on

When the whole world brings you down

When stars fall and ground breaks
You're sinking 'cause it's too late
Don't tell me that it's over
Even though you're finding it hard to believe
Even though you're finding it hard to believe, yeah.

Faith, it's easier said than done.
When it's so hard to trust anyone
Maybe it's just a place inside that you can hide

Wait, I can see you slipping away.
Just stay with me


(When the dark hits the night, I will be here)
Even though you're finding it hard to believe
(When you're lost, I will guide you)
Even though you're finding it hard to believe
(When the dark hits the night; I will be here)
Even though you're finding it hard to believe
(When you're lost, I will guide you home)

"Take Me As I Am"
(David Cook, Marti Frederiksen, Scott Stevens)

This is no escape
This is no surrender, my dear
This is my parade, my happy ever after
But only if you’re here


When I’m lost and broken

Take me as I am
Right here where I stand
Open up your arms and let me in
Out here on my own
I know I’m not alone
Let me in your heart, right where you stand
Take me as I am

We can take tonight
And make it last forever, if you dare
Ooh, we could runaway, take the world together
But only if you care


About these words unspoken

Take me as i am, give a second chance
We can take tomorrow, make it better, you and me
Give me one more try, before we say goodbye
Right here in this moment, here forever, every day


"Time Marches On"
(David Cook, Marti Frederiksen)

Never thought I’d see myself down here
In the same damn place with a different year

Where the lines on my face never looked so clear
I swear


You were six feet in on a one way street
When you gave into love with my heart on your sleeve
In a world full of pearls in an endless sea
You were all that I needed, all I needed
 

Time marches on, right or wrong
Never waits for no one, no
Can’t turn it off, won't make it through
Cause time marches on without you

If you knew then what you know right now
Would you’ve packed your bags and left this town
Cause I'm still here with my heart on the ground
This was the last thing I needed
All I needed

"The Last Goodbye"

(David Cook, Ryan Tedder)

If you hear this on the radio
Then we've already said our last goodbye
I won't be there when you get home
By now there's someone else that hears you cry
I wonder if he holds you like I did
I hope that he can love you better
Cause we were everything that's right at the wrong time

I didn't want to lose you
Leave you with a broken heart
But wherever we are, we're miles apart
I know that we tried, But this is the last goodbye
Oh, I didn't want to let you go
But wherever we are, we're miles apart
I know that we tried, But this is the last goodbye

We were almost beautiful
A broken piece of art put on display
But we were never possible
Another perfect moment thrown away
I know somebody out there will love you
They'll be the forever we never were
Cause we were everything that's right at
The wrong time
 
"Paper Heart"
(David Cook, Julian Emery, James Lawrence Irvin)

I can feel in the evening air all the words I want to say
but I can tell as you turn to leave that they wouldn't make you stay
overhead the lights come on and suddenly I see
that glow is gonna guide you home, wherever that may be

what use is a paper heart

when you're stuck in the rain, stuck in the rain
'cause all the love that I hold inside

feel it washing away, washing away
let it fall, take it all cause I'm so tired of feeling everything
so damn me and my paper heart 

in this pouring rain

I can watch as you fade away

but I hold on to the pain
in these arms that just let you go

on these lips that said your name
couldn't know it would hurt this hard 

to hear you close that door
so punch a hole in my paper heart 

cause I don't need it anymore


"4 Letter Word"
(David Cook, Claude Kelly, Matt Squire)


Hold your tongue, hold it tight
Or we will be destined to fall, like the sun did tonight
Leave it out, cause it might

Take the both of us down before we get it right
Oh, I know just what you're thinking
But if we ever let it go

I see you slipping away
Starting to fade
Crumbling down 'til we both hit the ground
You know if we never say, we'll never crash and burn
'Cause love is a 4 letter word

Looking back, now I see
Saying just how we feel causes such misery
All I want is to keep
This moment alive between you and me
And I know just what you're thinking
But if we ever let it go

I'm afraid of losing all that we have now
It could all get ruined if it's ever said out loud

  
"Goodbye To The Girl"
(David Cook, Andy Skib, Neal Tiemann)

Paint another picture black and blue
Take another moment, one or two just to get over you
When did all the gold around us rust
Turning all the love we had to dust
It took the best of you
It took the best of you

Oh, I've got nowhere to hide
Say my goodbye to the girl

I'm leaning on the edge, of jumping off the ledge
And watching the night do what the light never could
So tell me i'm crazy, it's not gonna save me
From holding my breath til the lines blur

Cause I've got nowhere to hide
And say my goodbye to the girl

Take another picture off the wall
Just another moment, watch it fall into the ocean blue
Take a look at where we used to be
Now I'm just a vessel lost at sea, I can't get over you
I don't know what to do

And goodbye to the world
Oh, goodbye to the world





"Rapid Eye Movement"
(David Cook, David Hodges)

Give me one more quiet night
'fore this loud morning gets it right
And does me in.
Does this story have an ending
Cause I'm needing to escape
And kill the blinding lights of day
To try again, close my eyes and start descending

Cause I, I can't seem to find 

a way back inside every last thought of love we made
That still keeps me awake
Still keeps me from everything we had
That I'm trying to get back, trying to get back

We keep floating towards the floor
Stuck in this pattern nevermore
Of sink or swim
But the oxygen is proving
More than words could ever say
To put these memories away
So this is it
These rapid eyes will keep on moving
These rapid eyes will keep on moving

Give me one more quiet night
Before this loud morning gets it right
And does me in.
Is this story worth forgetting

"This Is Not The Last Time"
(David Cook, David Hodges, Chris Destefano)


I remember
When the world outside

Was just a picture
When the colours come alive
Nothing broken

We were once so brave
Then the ocean 

Came and took it all away
And all that I could say

This is not the last time
I will see the sun rise
Cause I’ve been dreamin' far too long
To give up and leave this behind
This is not the only way
Tomorrow's holding on to another day

I know that this moment's real
Even though it might feel like goodbye

This is not the last time


Now were older
But were still the same
A littler wiser
Oh but we are not afraid 

Of open waters 
Let them take away
Everything

This is not a good bye
This is just a lullaby
And everything will be alright




"Let Me Fall For You"
(David Cook, Rune Westberg)

I was wrong, I was wrong
Thinking my heart could be my own
I was strong, I was strong
When I had a reason to hold on
 

Let me fall, let me fall for you
Let me fall for you

Don’t look down, don’t look down 

By now it’s too late to take it slow
Turn around, turn around

And give me a reason to let go
 

Let me fall, let me fall for you
Let me fall for you


It’s almost over
I’m hanging by a thread
With all the words you never said
I’m going under
So tell me what to do
I’ve got nothing to hold onto
Let me fall for you

All the time, all the time

You were the one that got me through
Like a sign, like a sign

You were the voice that knew the truth

Let me fall like a stone on the water
Let me fall like a plane out of the sky

*Sigh* ~ this is the best album ever...

Back to What I Love Most


Yup, i'm back to writing.. or blogging.. or etc..

It's been a while now... i keep on saying this i don't know why.. ha.

I missed on updating few important posts such as reviewing some great music like David Cook's This Loud Morning and the events following the album release, not forgetting the amazing Eddie Vedder, which new album, Ukelele Songs, is amazing as well. I have always love his vocals. And Chris Cornell's vocals. And David Cook's vocals. These 3, i could listen to their voice over and over again, with any song they sing, without having the thought of withdrawals at all.

Oh yes, also 3 Doors Down's Time of My Life. Isn't it a cliche that their album's title is the coronation song of David Cook during Idol? Love, love, love few songs in this album. Also the unforgettable 'Here Without You', which was the reason i dig them right now.

Bought Colbie Caillat's All of You too. Haven't listened to it yet, but i will be soon. As soon i get rid of David Cook's This Loud Morning from my car's radio. Ha. Don't know when that will happen anyway. I could not NOT listen to David Cook each and every single day of my life. *i know this sounds cheesy a lil bit*. (>_<)

Did i mention anywhere that i went to Sara Bareilles' concert in Milwaukee back in July? Oh my god. I can't believe i went!! It's so awesome i got to listen to her singing live, in front of my eyes. Though she looked like a tiny Thumbelina on stage (yup, my seat was waaaayyy back of the Auditorium). The highlight was when she sang 'Gravity'. Oh my god, i never thought i missed the awesomeness of this song (which was in her 1st album, Little Voice). To tell you the truth, i had tears in my eyes, when i focused on the lyrics. I'm gonna post it later on. THE BEST LYRICS out of Sara. She did mention that the song reminded her of her 'fucking bastard' ex-boyfriend. I guess i'm getting Little Voice after this, even though i was few years late, i don't fucking care.

And the amazing David Archuleta, who came to Malaysia last July 26th. Best day of the month. Will review the concert later. 

I'm gonna start planning to post my.. umm.. postings. A lot of events in my life that i would like to share. Thanks to those who chat at my blog. Most grateful if you guys take time to comment to my postings as well.

Adios.

[LYRICS] David Archuleta - Everything and More




You see a storm heading our way

You know the cold can make things delay
up here it can’t do any harm
The cracks show in the concrete jungle
Tear apart the weakest of hearts
up here you’ll be safe in my arms
Oh...

I know that you’re feeling like we’re only dreaming
Well don’t look down ‘cause this is real

[chorus]
Like a satellite we’re flying
Overhead where we see it all
Nothing can touch us
we’re everything and more
There’s no turning back from this point
Reaching heights like never before
Nothing can touch us, we’re everything
we’re everything and more

Let’s try holding each other
found a love to last forever
Up here gives you wings to stay strong, ooh
The air is pure that we’re breathing
We’re something to believe in
‘cause I feel it’s where we both belong

I know that you’re feeling like we’re only dreaming
Well don’t look down ‘cause this is real

Repeat [chorus]

Trust me this is worth not falling back to Earth
Everything and more is up here

Repeat [chorus]

Nothing can touch us, we’re everything
we’re everything and more
We’re everything and more, hey

Toby: I think at this point Archie has yet to comment on his new single (i might be wrong). I remembered once that Archie mentioned during an interview, or maybe a session (Cambio something.. where he sang Falling Stars with piano) that he wouldn't want to sing a song that he doesn't feeling it. Or something like that.

So i guess, reading this lyrics, he could be feeling it for real? i guess? can i say he is actually has started thinking about a relationship maybe? or was it about he doesn't want to be in a relationship, coz whatever he had with this significant other, is not real, and he is comfortable enough with what they have right now?

Or this could also not be about a relationship at all. Just courios on who is 'YOU', 'WE' and 'US'..

Just a thought. But his vocals is really high in this. Whatever it is, I like this song.

Kris Allen Secret Show - Shut That Door & Keep That Devil Out



Kris & his band had a secret show at the Viper Room in LA last night. Well, it was actually Sirk and the Dirty Minds' show. LOL! Read from the tweets that a lot of people came to support Kris.. yeay!

Kris also sang two new songs, well one actually. One was Leave You Alone (this song is sexy!!) and the other was cheeky, kicky Shut That Door and Keep That Devil Out. Yep, the name's that long. LOL. I just called it the Door & Devil song.

More videos of Kris at the Viper Room can be found HERE

Lyrics: The Last Goodbye - David Cook





If you hear this on the radio
Then we've already said our last goodbye
I won't be there when you get home
By now there's someone else that hears you cry
I wonder if he holds you like I did
I hope that he can love you better
Cause we were everything that's right at the wrong time

I didn't want to lose you
Leave you with a broken heart
But wherever we are, we're miles apart
I know that we tried, but this is the last goodbye
Oh, I didn't want to let you go
But wherever we are, we're miles apart
I know that we tried, but this is the last goodbye

We were almost beautiful
A broken piece of art put on display
But we were never possible
Another perfect moment thrown away
I know somebody out there will love you
They'll be the forever we never were
Cause we were everything that's right at
The wrong time


I love, love, love, love the lyrics soooo much!

It is a sad, but beautiful love song. Well, some said that it was from his previous relationship, but i guess we'll have to wait what he really has to say about this song.

Damn it. Cook did it again. He makes me fall in love with his songs now, as he did with Analog Heart songs.

David Cook: New Single "The Last Goodbye" - out on April 19th

DAVID COOK tweeted on March 31st that his new single from his second untitled album is "THE LAST GOODBYE', which he co-wrote with Ryan Tedder, American music mogul, frontman of OneRepublic, and it will be out on April 19th, 16 days from today.

eeeeekkkkk -->  me flailed like crazy...

Few days earlier, David tweeted that he been busy doing his DCTR-related activities.

@thedavidcook: Hey all, crazy productive day. working on website content/music video treatment/photo shoot scheduling (coming up this weekend)/gearing up for live shows, single release, etc. etc. etc.... Exciting times. Exciting times, indeed. Can't wait to share it all with ya.

I was sooooo happy that i predicted that his single might be coming out in the near future, so i tweeted back to him and requested (or maybe a little bit like a plead) that i want the single to be released on my birthday, which is in next few days.

Then.... that tweet came out... BAMM! Best Month ever. I tweeted to him that i knew it that the single will be coming out in April, so i decided that April's my lucky month and that he just made my year. And April 19th is my nephew's birthday, so it's double happiness.

What I just realised, just about few minutes earlier, before I blogged this, is that my nephew, whom birthday is on April 19th, his name is ADAM.

I was stunned for a few minutes, trying to absorb the coincidence.

My eyes then teared. It was indeed an overwhelming coincidence that I cherished.

I know some might say that I'm being overemotional over this little piece of coincidence, but David and his brother's story will always have a soft spot in my heart.

Did I just write 'coincidence' 3 times? Whatever.

Sad, Sad March...


This month is the most heartbreaking time of the year, i think. All my extra effort last year were not appreciated, and the majorities were just uncaring enough on what i have been doing to assist them since last year.

Just because there were hiccups here and there, which OTHER PEOPLE caused them, due to their uncaring way of life, they tend to assume that the hiccups were made by minorities like me. The minorities who have been sacrificing their social time and also may i say LIFE, just for the sake of covering their asses.

And it still breaks my heart that they are just ignorant and selfish people. I have loved them as people, as friends, as colleagues. It is heartbreaking to let go the love i have for them, and i am now trying SO hard not to let HATE to come into my heart. Coz it just isn't me to hate people that i have grown to love.

And for them to worship their worthless, hopeless kind, were just insulting.

I certainly pray to God to let me out of this hell and give me some happiness, whatever, whenever, whoever.

TOBY    :'(

Yuna ft. David Knight - Deeper Conversation (Live at No Black Tie)



emm.. this is an awesome performance... luv it luv it luv it...

Lyrics:

Is your favourite colour blue?
Do you always tell the truth?
Do you believe in outerspace?
And I'm learning you

Is your skin as tanned as mine?
Does your hair flow sideways?
Did someone took a portion of your heart?
And I'm learning you

And if you don't mind
Can you tell me
All your hopes and fears
And Everything that you believe in
Would you make a difference in the world
I'd love for you to take me to a deeper conversation
Only you can make me

I let my guard down for you
And in time you will too

If you don't mind
Can you tell me
All your hopes and fears
And Everything that you believe in
Would you make a difference in the world
I'd love for you to take me to a deeper conversation
Only you can make me

If you don't mind
Can you tell me
All your hopes and fears
And Everything that you believe in
Would you make a difference in the world
I'd love for you to take me to a deeper conversation
Only you can make me

4x
Deeper Conversation
Let me

toby: she really speaks from my soul...

SYTYCD 7: kent and lauren Contemporary top 8



Wow. I just saw this on tv. I love the song, the dance, the chemistry. It was an awesome performance and it seemed real. I tried to find a better video, but failed.

Anyway, the lyrics of the song is as below:

Collide - Howie Day

The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You're barely waking
And I'm tangled up in you
Yeah

But I'm open, you're closed
Where I follow, you'll go
I worry I won't see your face
Light up again

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
I somehow find, you and I collide

I'm quiet, you know
You make a first impression
I've found I'm scared to know
I'm always on your mind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the stars refuse to shine
Out of the back you fall in time
You somehow find, you and I collide

Don't stop here
I've lost my place
I'm close behind

Even the best fall down sometimes
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
Out of the doubt that fills your mind
You finally find, you and I collide

You finally find
You and I collide
You finally find
You and I collide

*sigh*

David Cook - Don't You (Forget About Me)



oh my god.. awesome cover by David Cook for AI10's bootsong. I was lurking at DCO/twitter last night and suddenly i saw a couple of great news... omg.. and suddenly few minutes later, walla.. there's a banner saying 'PRE-ORDER DAVID COOK'S ALBUM'..

WHAT THE...???!!!

At first, i pre-ordered one copy, but then, as greedy as i am, i ordered two instead.

Hah! This was one helluva news last night. i listened to the cover over and over again.. i admitted that i have never heard the song before, therefore initially i thought this is his first single.. LOL...

anyway, it is a good cover, i've never heard David growling so much.. you know, kinda sexy..way of growling.. you know.... oh, you know i love this guy so much...

NEW ALBUM TEASER - David Cook

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

Happy Birthday, TobyS!!

Today's my blog's 5th birthday!!! I'm so glad that it is still slive n kicking. Ha. Not many kicks, i think.

Anyway, Feb 1st is kinda a special day. Well, since last year, i supposed. Last year on this date, i won tickets from hitz.fm to Kris Allen's showcase. You see, i never been on air before, and i never won anything. So it's kinda amazing that i put aside my shyness and walla, i got 4 tickets to the show. Another amazing thing was, i was the 2nd person who won, after my Benches, Roxy, won first. So Double Celebration, indeed!!

I couldn't stop smiling the whole day, and i couldn't believe i won the tickets, till this day. I should write a story on what happen that wonderful day. I will, someday.

Anyway, Happy 5th Birthday again to my blog, TobyS.

Later.

P/S: Happy Belated New Year!! *is it too late? :)
