something in your eyes makes me wanna lose myself

a great song i got from someone…

“Feels Like Home”

By CHANTAL KREVIAZUK

Somethin’ in your eyes, makes me wanna lose myself
Makes me wanna lose myself, in your arms
There’s somethin’ in your voice, makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts, the rest of my life

If you knew how lonely my life has been
And how long I’ve been so alone
And if you knew how I wanted someone to come along
And change my life the way you’ve done

It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way back where I come from
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way back where I belong

A window breaks, down a long, dark street
And a siren wails in the night
But I’m alright, ’cause I have you here with me
And I can almost see, through the dark there is light

Well, if you knew how much this moment means to me
And how long I’ve waited for your touch
And if you knew how happy you are making me
I never thought that I’d love anyone so much

It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way the back where I come from
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way back where I belong
It feels like I’m all the way back where I belong

random quotes

these are some random quotes i got from a spam mail.. haha… some of them are pretty interesting though they sound really simple…

————————————————————–

Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

When you say, ‘I love you,’ mean it.

When you say, ‘I’m sorry,’ look the person in the eye.

Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

Believe in love at first sight.

Never laugh at anyone’s dreams. People who don’t have dreams don’t have much.

Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely.

In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

Don’t judge people by their relatives.

Talk slowly but think quickly.

When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, ‘Why do you want to know?’

Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

Say ‘bless you’ when you hear someone sneeze.

When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

Spend some time alone.

smokescreen formed

smokescreen, it’s a release of a smoke grenade to blur the surroundings of usually a danger zone or critical movement path of a military scenario. however, it can also mean to create a ‘smoke-out’, that is to hide or create a ‘screen’ or situation to shield yourselves or run away from potential ‘dangers’ or watever that scares u.. haha! but then, i realised a new definition for this term, which is to hide yourselves from yourselves. this may involve things u do to subdue or mask ur own feelings, or to lessen the impacts of ur own actions, or in simple terms, run away from ur own shit that u have created. this may includes things we do that do not have any positive impacts in solving those situations, or even self-deemed solutions which does not solve or lessen the impact of these situations! simply to say, we are all trying to cheat our own body.

humans are weird. they are smart, but sometimes they do not even understand themselves, let alone control their own body, mind and feelings. i guess thats the way things are.

smoke-screen formed…

gaining through losing

this is one of the greatest classic hits of hirai ken, and is one of my favourite songs.

life is good, my friend~~

Gaining Through Losing (translated)
performed by Ken Hirai (平井堅)

めぐり来る季節ごとに この手からこぼれ落ちるもの
meguri kuru kisetsu goto ni kono te kara kobore ochiru mono
in the ever-recurring seasons, there are things that have slipped from my hands
立ち止まり ふり返れば 寂しげに僕をみてる
tachi domari furi kaereba samishige ni boku wo miteru
if I stop and turn around, I’ll be watching myself in my loneliness

いつも いつでも 誇れるものをひとつ 信じてきた日々
itsumo itsu demo hokoreru mono wo hitotsu shinjite kita hibi
these days, I’ve come to believe in one thing to be proud of always and forever

出会いと別れを繰り返し 歩いてきた道を
deai to wakare wo kuri kaeshi aruite kita michi wo
meetings and partings happen over and over again
かけがえのないものと思う 今の自分ならば
kakegae no nai mono to omou ima no jibun naraba
and I think this road I’ve been walking has been invaluable to building my present self (*)

がむしゃらな情熱さえ 懐かしく思う日が来ても
gamushara na jounetsu sae natsukashiku omou hi ga kite mo
even if one day I reminisce about my reckless passion
静かなる強さ秘めた ともしびを掲げていよう
shizuka naru tsuyosa himeta tomoshibi wo kakagete iyou
I’ll hoist the lights which house my peaceful strength (†)

自由 愛情 手放したとき 初めて その意味を知る
jiyuu aijou tebanashita toki hajimete sono imi wo shiru
when I let go of my freedom and affection, I first got to know that meaning

痛みと歓び分かち合い 絆深めた人の
itami to yorokobi wakachi ai kizuna fukameta hito no
in sharing our joy and pain, and becoming so intensely bonded
飾ることない言葉の粒 今も胸に抱いて
kazaru koto nai kotoba no tsubu ima mo mune ni daite
now let’s hold our unembellished words close in our hearts (‡)

雨雲切れて 光が射す 大地が歌い はじめる
amagumo kirete hikari ga sasu daichi ga utai hajimeru
cutting through the clouds, light pierces the earth, and the earth begins to sing:

We’ve been gaining one good thing through losing another
I’m so proud to be with you, my love
Now you know the meaning of SUNSHINE AFTER RAIN
Let me tell you LIFE IS GOOD, my friends

(*) Literally, “if it’s myself, now I think that the road I’ve been walking on is a thing with no replacement.”
(†) Literally, “the lights in which are hidden my strength that has become peaceful.”
(‡) Literally, “we share our pain and joy, and now let’s hold in our hearts the grains of unembellished words of people whose bonds have intensified.”

what’s left of 2007?

2007 is a year of both high hopes and utter disappointment for me. i’ve seen myself changing from a hopeless student to someone who found his new aim in life. i have struggled to pass my papers, to move on from failure, to secure a permanent job, to find happiness even.

i’ve had many realizations of life, all which occurred to me in one of the worst ways ever. my grandpa passed away early in 2007, and i saw how things in my family evolved from there and realized life is full of regrets. i failed modules which i could have passed with just a little bit of effort; i almost didn’t graduate and i realized how the mistakes u made or had haunts you later on in life. i had my first real interview in the most unprepared and nervous mode ever and got owned by the interviewer; realized how important results are to a graduate.
i remembered how low my confidence was and how low my self-esteem was then, and i had to slap myself so many times to wake myself up and face the reality, and i held on to one simple belief,’天无绝人之路’ and things went on right for me. i found myself surrounded with great and supportive frens who didnt leave me in the lurch and i need to express thanks and gratitude to anyone who has given me advice, hope, lessons and direction in my life, even through a simple sms or msn message. without all of u frens, i wouldn’t be in the state i am now.

happy new year~

trying too hard~~

sometimes i try too hard to achieve things that were out of reach of my abilities.

i try too hard to please everyone.

i try too hard to follow the crowd.

i try too hard to do what people expected me to do.

i try too hard make myself happy.

i try too hard to love someone when the other party doesn’t do so in return.

i try too hard being a good friend.

i try too hard to act normal.

i realised i’m trying too hard just to live.
