What Are Good Lyrics?

Ah… English, such a direct language. I often have discussions with people about the nuances of the different languages. Friends tell me that French and Italian are great for flirting, and my mom keeps telling me that different dialects in Chinese have so many words to describe food flavors, impossible to describe in Spanish or English.

The Beautiful Language.

However, what about songs?

My favorite songs, my favorite artists in English — 99% of the time, I try not to find the lyrics any longer. Whenever I have enjoyed the songs, looked for the lyrics, 90% of the time I’ve ended up disappointed.

My first language is Spanish, however, I often find myself thinking in English – so, whenever I listen to music in Spanish, my brain begins translating lyrics into English. The repertoire of songs that I actually like in Spanish tend to be songs that are hard to translate literally into English.

I’m all over this. I usually love Diane Warren’s cheese… I mean, she did write I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing — the song most Aerosmith fans hate… but you know, it’s a great song. Especially to sing-not in Karaoke. LOL It’s the feeling. Liv Tyler is losing her dad to the asteroid! Please, cry! xD

I Miss U Missing Me is the first English song by Zhou Bichang… and Diane Warren’s first for an Asian artist (?) Has she written any other songs for anybody not from America or Europe? OMG, please let that be. xD

This one so needs to be the 2nd single.
This one > The Chinese/English version.
一滴淚的距離 (Yi Di Lei de Ju Li) – A Tear in the Distance

This can totally fit into the story between Grace and Alex, Julz~~~
This is so Alex -> Grace xD

I feel I haven’t written anything in ages… so  this is new. ^^ Just wrote it a couple of hours ago.

How I’m looking at the picture,
remembering the laughing and the tears,
all the moments throughout those years.
Sharing our fears,
waking up at 4 am. some days,
walking ’bout in a crazy haze

How would I’ve known
that I’d be so much in love
with someone I met so many years ago.
Where did you go?
I haven’t seen you, or heard you call-
We’re ten thousand miles apart or so.

How am I supposed to reach you?

If Only

Just taking apart my notebook. LOL’

If Only

I never thought that coming back
would take a piece of heart apart
and as time passed, each piece of heart
just started fading away.

I understood saying goodbyes
was always a part of this life,
but it’s never stopped this mind
thinking about the time, if only…

If only I hadn’t left,
if only I’d pass this test,
we’d still have the time.
One more summer, one last fall…
winter passes, springtime falls
One more cycle, life and death.
If only.
