Samson

Samson- Regina Spektor

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth
I have to go, I have to go
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
He ate a slice of wonder bread and went right back to bed
And history books forgot about us and the bible didn’t mention us
And the bible didn’t mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the stars came fallin’ on our heads
But they’re just old light, they’re just old light
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson came to my bed
Told me that my hair was red
Told me I was beautiful and came into my bed
Oh I cut his hair myself one night
A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light
And he told me that I’d done alright
And kissed me ’til the mornin’ light, the mornin’ light
And he kissed me ’til the mornin’ light

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of wonder bread and went right back to bed
Oh, we couldn’t bring the columns down
Yeah we couldn’t destroy a single one
And history books forgot about us
And the bible didn’t mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first

Songs from Grey’s Anatomy

Posted in interests, music, television, video on February 24, 2008 by anairam

With lots of free time, I was able to research on some songs I have been hearing on episodes of Grey’s Anatomy and One Tree Hill. Here are some of my favorites with the You Tube videos and lyrics. Enjoy!

Breathe (2 AM)- Anna Nalick

(I specifically love this one!)

2 AM and she calls me ’cause I’m still awake,
can you help me unravel my latest mistake,
I don’t love him, winter just wasn’t my season
Yeah we walk through the doors, so accusing their eyes
Like they have any right at all to critisize,
hypocrites, you’re all here for the very same reason

‘Cause you can’t jump the track,we’re like cars on a cable
and life’s like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button girl,
So cradle your head in you hands
And breathe, just breathe,
Woah breathe, just breathe

May he turn 21 on the base at Fort Bliss
Just today he sat down to the flask in his fist,
Ain’t been sober, since maybe October of last year.
Here in town you can tell he’s been down for a while,
But my God it’s so beautiful when the boy smiles,
Wanna hold him, maybe I’ll just sing about it.

Cause you can’t jump the track, we’re like cars on a cable,
And life’s like an hourglass, glued to the table.
No one can find the rewind button boys,
So cradle your head in your hands,
And breathe, just breathe,
Woah breathe, just breahte

There’s a light at each end of this tunnel, you shout
But you’re just as far in as you’ll ever be out
These mistakes you’ve made, you’ll just make them again
If you only try turning around.

2 AM and I’m still awake, writing a song
If I get it all down on paper, its no longer
inside of me, threatening the life they belong to
And i feel like I’m naked in front of the crowd
Cause these words are my diary, screaming out loud
And I know that you’ll use them, however you want to

Cause you can’t jump the track, we’re like cars on a cable,
And life’s like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button now
Sing it if you understand.
and breathe, just breathe
woah breathe, just breathe,
oh breathe, just breathe.

The Story- Brandi Carlile

  All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I’ve been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to tell them to
It’s true…I was made for you

I climbed across the mountain tops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But baby I broke them all for you
Because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
Yeah you do and I was made for you

You see the smile that’s on my mouth
[The Story lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com%5D

Is hiding the words that don’t come out
And all of my friends who think that I’m blessed
They don’t know my head is a mess
No, they don’t know who I really am
And they don’t know what I’ve been through like you do
And I was made for you…

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I’ve been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to tell them to
It’s true…I was made for you

Oh yeah, it’s true… I was made for you.

Warning Signs- Coldplay

A warning sign,
I missed the good part then I realized,
I started looking and the bubble burst.
I started looking for excuses.

Come on in,
I’ve gotta tell you what a state I’m in,
I’ve gotta tell you in my loudest tones,
That I started looking for a warning sign.

When the truth is,
I miss you.
Yeah the truth is,
That I miss you so.

A warning sign,
You came back to haunt me and I realized,
That you were an island and I passed you by,
You were an island to discover.

Come on in,
I’ve gotta tell you what state I’m in,
I’ve gotta tell you in my loudest tones,
That I started looking for a warning sign.

When the truth is,
I miss you.
Yeah the truth is,
That I miss you so.

And I’m tired,
I should not have let you go.

So I crawl back into your open arms.
Yes, I crawl back into your open arms.
And I crawl back into your open arms.
Yes, I crawl back into your open arms…

Keep Breathing- Ingrid Michaelson

The storm is coming, but I don’t mind
People are dying, I close my blinds

All that I know is I’m breathing now

I want to change the world, instead I sleep
I want to believe in more than you and me

But all that I know is I’m breathing
All we can do is keep breathing now
Now, now, now

All that I know is I’m breathing
All I can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing
All we can do is keep breathing

All we can do is keep breathing now

Happy 22nd

Posted in life, me time, thoughts on February 16, 2008 by anairam

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday to me…

Officially 22 years old at around 7:30 AM.

A so-so day.

Lunch date with the family at a chaotic buffet garden restaurant somewhere around QC.

It was a battle between high school and college friends and college won hands down. Only one from high school remembered my special day, and it was my best friend. The key people I expected to remember disappointed me.

I received a heart necklace from my chinky better friend (not best just better ^_^) and a pearl dangling gold based earrings from my sister (funded by mom). They obviously know my love for jewelry and accessories.

On my clock it’s just 2 minutes more before its not my birthday anymore.

Yung mga gustong humabol sa regalo, pwede pa ha. Magpasabi lang. haha. ^_^

Happy 22nd!

Happy Valentines Day, Anairam

Posted in friendship, love, me time, thoughts on February 10, 2008 by anairam

A year ago, when the blogging world was still unknown to me, I remembered writing in my diary that by 2007, I won’t be celebrating Christmas and Valentines day alone.

A month ago, I truly believed in my heart that before I step at age 22 (which is 6 days away from now), that that dream would come true, I will be with someone this Valentines day.

After 2 broken chances from fate, I was still hoping for a 3rd chance at a potential love life. Last week I was hoping to still make it on deadline. Valentines day.

But from the looks of today, I think I’ll just have to say better luck next year.

Why is Valentines Day so special anyway? For “taken” people, they may say it’s the season/day of the year to best celebrate their love for one another. But for us “single since birth” ladies, its a painful reminder that you’ve been alone for the past 21 years of your life.. I wonder if “single since birth” gentlemen think so too.. hehe

At least I have 3 proposal dates for Valentines. From my girlfriends. Haha. At first I thought that people may think that either were lesbians or just pathetic little girls who can’t get a man to date them on Valentines day. But then again when you put it this way, Valentines is not just a day for the lovers. Love I believe does make the world go round, its just that it has been stereotypical to pertain to partner/romantic love. And not having a partner doesn’t make your world stop anyways. You just have to resort to other forms of love there is: family love, love for friends and love for self. I’m sure I’ll still have the time of my life knowing that this Valentines, I won’t be alone. I love my friends, I love my family and I love myself. And I bet my life that they love me too. What more can I ask for di ba?

Career Update. Me Time.

Posted in me time, thoughts on February 7, 2008 by anairam

It’s nearly 9 days before my birthday. And so before I turn 22 this year, I would like to give myself (and yes you too.. all of you) a short recap and updates on my current situation @ present.

(“,) Career: Earlier today, I came from an interview @ PHC on their PMR department. I just learned that I was given a “first priority” rate from my psych exam and initial interview @ their HR department 2 weeks ago. So my day there started with a PT exam (50 items on which you are given only 30 minutes to answer). And guess what my score is? 20/50. haha. Wala pa sa kalahati. Nakakahiya. Anyways, my interview was fine, good. Unlike my other interviews on other hospitals, Tagalog dito, and as always, I was quite nervous before the interview starts. But once it has started, some bursts of confidence comes over me, and before I knew it, I was actually responding to questions quite nicely (yes, in English). hehe.

So current status: My mom told me before I go to that interview, to be honest (in the sense that I am currently in-training @ another hospital thrice a week). And so I did. At first, the head PT who interviewed me, looked kind-of disappointed. I thought that after the first minute, he was going to tell me to take a hike. But then I lasted there for more than 10 minutes, answering further questions. Despite my low exam score, he read me the results of my psych exam and initial interview and maybe he also thought personality-wise, that I’m perfectly fit for the job. But considering that it was just my 2nd week from the other hospital, he told me to just call them anytime I want to start volunteering there @ PHC. Even if it takes me 3 mos. after I am finish with my present commitment. It was just nice to know that I didn’t blew an opportunity this time. It’s just a matter of prioritizing and time management.
