30 Days Of Songs- A Song That Reminds You Of Someone / Somewhere.

I planned on doing Simple Plan’s Jet Lag song because it reminds me of going to the MMVAs (2011) with Robyn where we saw them do rehearsals and perform up close (even though this was only a little over a month ago).  But then as I was taking out my computer to write this blog, I heard the song Shine by Collective Soul on a commercial which reminds me of my favourite teacher, Mr. Currie, who taught my grade 5 class at Moonstone Elementary School.  We used to sing a bunch of songs, Shine being one of them, for our music class.  Since this is my last post I’ll post both of these songs.

Jet Lag by Simple Plan

(So jet lagged)

What time is it where you are?
(I miss you more than anything)
I’m back at home, you feel so far
(Waiting for the phone to ring)
It’s getting lonely living upside down
I don’t even want to be in this town
Trying to figure out, the time zone’s making me crazy

You say good morning when it’s midnight
Going out of my head, alone in this bed
I wake up to your sunset
And it’s driving me mad, I miss you so bad
And my heart heart, heart is so jet lagged
Heart heart, heart is so jet lagged
Heart heart, heart is so jet lagged
Is so jet lagged

What time is it where you are?
(Five more days and I’ll be home)
I keep your picture in my car
(I hate the thought of you alone)
I’ve been keeping busy all the time
Just to try to keep you off my mind
Trying to figure out, the time zone’s making me crazy

You say good morning when it’s midnight
Going out of my head, alone in this bed
I wake up to your sunset
And it’s driving me mad, I miss you so bad
And my heart heart, heart is so jet lagged
Heart heart, heart is so jet lagged
Heart heart, heart is so jet lagged
Is so jet lagged

I miss you so bad
(I miss you so bad)
I miss you so bad
(I miss you so bad)
I miss you so bad
(I wanna share your horizon)
I miss you so bad
And see the same sun rising
I miss you so bad
Until the hour hand is back to when you’re home with me

You say good morning when it’s midnight
Going out of my head, alone in this bed
I wake up to your sunset
And it’s driving me mad, I miss when you say

Good morning when it’s midnight
Going out of my head, alone in this bed
I wake up to your sunset
And it’s driving me mad, I miss you so bad

And my heart heart, heart is so jet lagged
Heart heart, heart is so jet lagged
Heart heart, heart is so jet lagged
Is so jet lagged

(Is so jet lagged)

 

Shine by Collective Soul

Give me a word
Give me a sign
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find.
What will I find?

Lay me on the ground
Or fly me in the sky
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find.
What will I find?

Yeah … Yeah … Yeah … Yeah.

Woah , Heaven let your light shine down (x4)

Love is in the water
Love is in the air
Show me where to look
Tell me will love be there.
Will love be there?

Teach me how to speak
Teach me how to share
Teach me where to go
Tell me will love be there.
Will love be there?

Yeah … Yeah … Yeah … Yeah.

Woah , Heaven let your light shine down (x4)

Give me a word
Give me a sign
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find.
What will I find?

Lay me on the ground
Or fly me in the sky
Show me where to look
Tell me what will I find.
What will I find?

Yeah … Yeah … Yeah …Yeah

Woah , Heaven let your light shine down (x4)

I’m gonna let it shine,
I’m gonna let it shine,
Heaven, let your light shine on me.
Oh, Yeah, Yeah
Heaven, let your light shine on me.

Shine…..
Shine on me, yeah
Shine…..
C’mon and shine.

Ever ever after 

Storybook endings, fairy tales coming true
Deep down inside we want to believe they still do
In our secretest heart, it’s our favorite part of the story
Let’s just admit we all want to make it to

Ever ever after
If we just don’t get it our own way
Ever ever after
It may only be a wish away

Start a new fashion wear your heart on your sleeve
Sometimes you reach what’s realest by making believe
Unafraid, unashamed
There is joy to be claimed in this world
You even might wind up being glad to be you

Ever ever after
Though the world will tell you it’s not smart
Ever ever after
The world can be yours if you let your heart
Believe in ever after…

No wonder your heart feels it’s flying
Your head feels it’s spinning
Each happy ending’s a brand new beginning
Let yourself be enchanted, you just might break through

To ever ever after
Forever could even start today
Ever ever after
Maybe it’s just one wish away
Your ever ever after
Ever ever ever after…

(I’ve been dreaming of a true love’s kiss)

Oh,
For ever ever after

30 Days Of Songs- A Song That Reminds You Of A Particular Event.

Carrie Underwood’s Ever Ever After was our song for our grade 12 formal so that song reminds me of that night.

Ever ever after

Storybook endings, fairy tales coming true
Deep down inside we want to believe they still do
In our secretest heart, it’s our favorite part of the story
Let’s just admit we all want to make it to

Ever ever after
If we just don’t get it our own way
Ever ever after
It may only be a wish away

Start a new fashion wear your heart on your sleeve
Sometimes you reach what’s realest by making believe
Unafraid, unashamed
There is joy to be claimed in this world
You even might wind up being glad to be you

Ever ever after
Though the world will tell you it’s not smart
Ever ever after
The world can be yours if you let your heart
Believe in ever after…

No wonder your heart feels it’s flying
Your head feels it’s spinning
Each happy ending’s a brand new beginning
Let yourself be enchanted, you just might break through

To ever ever after
Forever could even start today
Ever ever after
Maybe it’s just one wish away
Your ever ever after
Ever ever ever after…

(I’ve been dreaming of a true love’s kiss)

Oh,
For ever ever after

30 Days Of Songs- A Song That You Would Like Played At Your Funeral.

I don’t really want a funeral to begin with to want a song played at but I think Avril Lavigne’s song Keep Holding On has a good message for people who have recently lost someone.

You’re not alone, together we stand
I’ll be by your side, you know I’ll take your hand
When it gets cold, and it feels like the end
There’s no place to go, you know I won’t give in

(Ahh, ahh)
No I won’t give in
(Ahh, ahh)

Keep holding on
Cause you know we’ll make it through, we’ll make it through
Just stay strong
Cause you know I’m here for you, I’m here for you

There’s nothing you can say (Nothing you can say)
Nothing you can do (Nothing you can do)
There’s no other way when it comes to the truth
So – keep holding on
Cause you know we’ll make it through, we’ll make it through

So far away, I wish you were here
Before it’s too late, this could all disappear
Before the doors close, and it comes to an end
With you by my side I will fight and defend

(Ahh, ahh)
I’ll fight and defend
(Ahh, ahh)
Yeeah, yeah

Keep holding on
Cause you know we’ll make it through, we’ll make it through
Just stay strong
Cause you know I’m here for you, I’m here for you

There’s nothing you can say (Nothing you can say)
Nothing you can do (Nothing you can do)
There’s no other way when it comes to the truth
So – keep holding on
Cause you know we’ll make it through, we’ll make it through

Hear me when I say when I say I believe
Nothing’s gonna change, nothing’s gonna change destiny
Whatever’s meant to be will work out perfectly

Yeeah, yeah, yeah, yeaaaah
La da da da
La da da da
La da da da da da da da da da

Keep holding on
Cause you know we’ll make it through, we’ll make it through
Just stay strong
Cause you know I’m here for you, I’m here for you

There’s nothing you can say (Nothing you can say)
Nothing you can do (Dooo, do)
There’s no other way when it comes to the truth
So – keep holding on
Cause you know we’ll make it through, we’ll make it through

(Ahh, ahh)
(Ahh, ahh)
Keep holding on
(Ahh, ahh)
(Ahh, ahh)
Keep holding on

There’s nothing you can say (Nothing you can say)
Nothing you can do (Doo, do)
There’s no other way when it comes to the truth
So – keep holding on (Keep holding on)
Cause you know we’ll make it through, we’ll make it through

30 Days Of Songs- A Song That You Would Like Played At Your Wedding.

There are a lot of songs that would be nice for a wedding.  In particular I like Forever which John Stamos sang to Lori Laughlin on Full House, Forever & For Always by Shania Twain and Kelly Clarkson’s A Moment Like This (which I will share the lyrics to).

What if I told you it was all meant to be
Would you believe me, would you agree
It’s almost that feeling, we’ve met before
So tell me that you don’t think I’m crazy
When I tell you, love has come here and now

For a moment like this
Some people wait a lifetime
For a moment like this
Some people search forever
For that one special kiss
Oh, I can’t believe its happening to me
Some people wait a lifetime for a moment like this

Everything changes but beauty remains
Something so tender, I can’t explain
Well I may be dreaming, but till I awake
Can’t we make this dream last forever
And I’ll cherish all the love we share

A moment like this
Some people wait a lifetime
For a moment like this
Some people search forever
For that one special kiss
Oh, I can’t believe its happening to me
Some people wait a lifetime for a moment like this

Could this be the greatest love of all
I wanna know that you will catch me when I fall
So let me tell you this
Some people wait a lifetime
For a moment like this

Some people wait a lifetime
For a moment like this
Some people search forever
For that one special kiss
Oh, I can’t believe it’s happening to me
Some people wait a lifetime for a moment like this

Oh, like this
Oh, I can’t believe it’s happening to me
Some people wait a lifetime for a moment like this
Oh, like this

30 Days Of Songs- A Song That You Could Fall Asleep To.

Anything by Coldplay is really mellow so I’ll pick my favourite Coldplay song Fix You.

When you try your best but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you’re too in love to let it go
But if you never try you’ll never know
Just what you’re worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down your face
And I

Tears stream down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face

And I
Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones And I will try to fix you

30 Days Of Songs- A Song That Gets You Pumped Up.

This is a very upbeat catchy song so I’m going to say that this would be a good song to get you pumped up for a night out: Jason DeRulo’s Don’t Wanna Go Home.

Check that out what they playin
That’s my song that’s my song
Where my drinks
I’ve been waiting much too long much too long
And this girl in my lap passing out, she’s a blonde
The last thing on my mind is going home

From the window to the wall
This club is jumping, til tomorrow
Is it daylight or is it nightime
1 o’clock 2 o’clock 3 o’clock 4
We gon’ tear the club up til

Dayo me say Dayo
Daylight come and we don’t wanna go home
Yeah so we losing control
Turn the lights low cause we about to get blown

Let the club shut down
We won’t go oh oh oh
Burn it down
To the flo oh oh oh
Dayo me say dayo
Daylight come and we don’t wanna go home

We drink the whole bottle but it ain’t over over
Errbody jumping on the sofa sofa
Standing on the chairs
Standing on the bar
No matter day or night I’m shining
Bitch I’m a star

From the window to the wall
This club is jumping, til tomorrow
Is it daylight or is it nightime

1 o’clock 2 o’clock 3 o’clock 4
We gon’ tear the club up til

30 Days Of Songs- A Song That No One Would Expect You To Love.

I don’t know if it’s that unexpected but I love All Night Long by Buckcherry.

All night long,
Yeah we’re going all night long,
Here we go all night long,
Everybody all night long yeah!

Are you ready to go all night long,
Make you stop in your tracks when you’re singing our song,
A good time comin’ will keep your motor runnin’ all day yeah!
You know you like it ’cause you’re having fun,
And the feet getcha moving to the good-time strum,
The walls come down and you let it all out let me hear you say:

Yeah we’re going all night long,
All night long,
Yeah we’re going all night long,
Do it anyway you want,
And do it all night long!

You know you got it when you’re having fun,
And the rock n rolls shaking you under the sun,
You scream and you shout this is what it’s all about,
It’s the only way,
You got it started now we’ll tear it up,
Got a speaker box pumpin’,
Bang your head to the drums,
You got a smile on your face,
‘Cause you found your place,
Let me hear you say:

Yeah we’re going all night long,
All night long,
Yeah we’re going all night long,
Do it anyway you want,
And do it all night long!

D-d-d-Do it right!

Do it all night!
Do it for the drum!
Yeah, whatcha waitin’for?!

I wanna dig it in the jailhouse rock,
Wanna feel it from my head rock down to my socks,
That’s what it means when you’re livin’ your dreams,
Let me hear you say:

Yeah we’re going all night long,
All night long,
Do it anyway you want,
And do it all night long!
[x4]

30 Days Of Songs- A Song That Is A Guilty Pleasure.

I really have gotten into the show True Blood which in itself is a guilty pleasure (loved the books so started watching the show lol) but the guilty pleasure song is the theme song from True Blood, Bad Things by Jace Everett.

I wanna do bad things with you.

When you came in the air went out.
And every shadow filled up with doubt.
I don’t know who you think you are,
But before the night is through,
I wanna do bad things with you.

I’m the kind to sit up in his room.
Heart sick an’ eyes filled up with blue.
I don’t know what you’ve done to me,
But I know this much is true:
I wanna do bad things with you.

When you came in the air went out.
And all those shadows there are filled up with doubt.
I don’t know who you think you are,
But before the night is through,
I wanna do bad things with you.
I wanna do real bad things with you.
Ow, ooh.

I don’t know what you’ve done to me,
But I know this much is true:
I wanna do bad things with you.
I wanna do real bad things with you

30 Days Of Songs- A Song That Describes You.

I picked Linkin Park’s Numb for this one.  I always feel I can’t live up to people’s expectations.  And I’ve felt “numb” in the sense that  I really don’t feel like I’m living much of a life sometimes.

I’m tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless lost under the surface
Don’t know what you’re expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow, just caught in the undertow)

I’ve become so numb I can’t feel you there
I’ve become so tired so much more aware
I’m becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

Can’t you see that you’re smothering me
Holding too tightly afraid to lose control
Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
And every second I waste is more than I can take

I’ve become so numb I can’t feel you there
I’ve become so tired so much more aware
I’m becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

And I know I may end up failing too
But I know You were just like me
With someone disappointed in you

I’ve become so numb I can’t feel you there
I’ve become so tired so much more aware
I’m becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

I’ve become so numb I can’t feel you there
Tired of being what you want me to be
I’ve become so numb I can’t feel you there
Tired of being what you want me to be
