Issues – Julia Michaels (Kina Grannis Cover)

Issues – Julia Michaels (Kina Grannis Cover)

I’m jealous, I’m overzealous
When I’m down, I get real down
When I’m high, I don’t come down
I get angry, baby, believe me
I could love you just like that
And I could leave you just this fast

But you don’t judge me
‘Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too
No, you don’t judge me
‘Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too

‘Cause I got issues
But you got ’em too
So give ’em all to me
And I’ll give mine to you
Bask in the glory
Of all our problems
‘Cause we got the kind of love
It takes to solve ’em

Yeah, I got issues
And one of them is how bad I need you

You do shit on purpose
You get mad and you break things
Feel bad, try to fix things
But you’re perfect
Poorly wired circuit
And got hands like an ocean
Push you out, pull you back in

‘Cause you don’t judge me
‘Cause if you did, baby, I would judge you too
No, you don’t judge me
‘Cause you see it from same point of view

‘Cause I got issues
But you got ’em too
So give ’em all to me
And I’ll give mine to you
Bask in the glory
Of all our problems
‘Cause we got the kind of love
It takes to solve ’em

Yeah, I got issues
And one of them is how bad I need you

And one of them is how bad I need you
(I got issues, you got ’em too)

‘Cause I got issues
(I got)
But you got ’em too
So give ’em all to me
(You got ’em too)
And I’ll give mine to you
Bask in the glory
(I got issues)
Of all our problems
‘Cause we got the kind of love
(You got ’em too)
It takes to solve ’em

Yeah, I got issues (I got)
And one of them is how bad I need you (You got ’em too)
Yeah, I got issues (I got issues)
And one of them is how bad I need you (You got ’em too)
Yeah, I got issues (I got)
And one of them is how bad I need you

Shallow – Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper

Shallow – Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper

Tell me somethin’, girl
Are you happy in this modern world?
Or do you need more?
Is there somethin’ else you’re searchin’ for?

I’m fallin’
In all the good times
I find myself longing for change
And in the bad times, I fear myself

Tell me something, boy
Aren’t you tired tryna fill that void?
Or do you need more?
Ain’t it hard keepin’ it so hardcore?

I’m fallin’
In all the good times
I find myself longing for change
And, in the bad times, I fear myself

I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in
I’ll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface where they can’t hurt us
We’re far from the shallow now

In the sha-ha, sha-la-low
In the sha-sha-la-la-la-low
In the sha-ha, sha-ha-ha-low
We’re far from the shallow now

Hoo, huh, uh, huhh-ow
Huh, huhh-huhhh

I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in
I’ll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface where they can’t hurt us
We’re far from the shallow now

In the sha-ha, sha-la-low
In the sha-ha, sha-la-la-la-low
In the sha-ha, sha-ha-low
We’re far from the shallow now

Life is like a melody

Life is like a melody

Sometimes we forget that life is like a melody. It’s not a flat tone. It’s a sequence of tones. It goes up and down, it goes between the sorrows and the glories. Sometimes it goes really fast like a drum, sometimes it goes slow like a soothing wind. But one thing to remember: “they are always played in harmony”. So next time you complain about your satback, remember that it is, too, part of the beautiful melody. And once it’s a flat tone, it is no more a melody.

I Don’t Know My Name – Grace VanderWaal

I Don’t Know My Name – Grace VanderWaal

I don’t know my name
I don’t play by the rules of the game
So you say I’m just trying, just trying

So I heard you are my sister’s friend
You get along quite nicely
You ask me why I cut my hair
And changed myself completely

I don’t know my name
I don’t play by the rules of the game
So you say I’m just trying, just trying

I went from bland and popular
To joining the marching band
I made the closest friends
I’ll ever have in my lifetime

I am lost, trying to get found
In an ocean of people

Please don’t ask me any questions
There won’t be a valid answer
I’ll just say that
I don’t know my name
I don’t play by the rules of the game
So you say I’m just trying, just trying

I now know my name
I don’t play by the rules of the game
So you say, I’m not trying
But I’m trying, to find my way

Sinking inside yourself

Sinking inside yourself

Every time you wake up
Too gone to see

Every time you come down
So far from me
From me...

Next time when you wake up
You're lost at sea

I just watch you sink down
You fade away from me
From me...

Where do you go
When the life slips from your eyes?

I'll never know
Why you smiled and waved goodbye
Goodbye...

Where do you go
When the life slips from your eyes?

I'll never know
Why you smiled and waved goodbye
Goodbye...

Asmara Nusantara

Lagu Asamara Nusantara dari Budi Doremi kembali menjadi soundtrack untuk program yang saya lalui kali ini. Alunan melodi yang lembut menyapa telinga selalu menjadi penenang yang ampuh saat besarnya tuntutan selama program. Dan lirik yang dalam dan sesuai dengan kondisi kami menjadikan lagu ini “sempurna” untuk dijadikan soundtrack SIYLEP 2017.

waktu itu kamu pakai baju merah
yang ku tahu aku pakai baju putih
kita bergandengan menyusuri kota
dan cinta kita seperti indonesia

Bintang Altair

Bintang Altair

 

I think the universe is on my side
Heaven and Earth have finally aligned
Days are good and that’s the way it should be

You sprinkle star dust on my pillow case
It’s like a moonbeam brushed across my face
Nights are good and that’s the way it should be

Potongan lirik Bright dari Echosmith ini tak bosan-bosannya ku ulang beberapa hari belakangan. Suara yang merdu ditambah alunan musik yang lembut menjadi kombinasi yang pas untuk didengar, belum lagi lirik yang mengena dengan pengalaman pribadi. Sungguh kolaborasi sempurna pemicu banjirnya dophamine di otakku. Sebuah hormon yang menyebabkan rasa bahagia dan ketergantungan akan sesuatu, sering juga disebut sebagai hormon cinta.

Passenger – Let Her Go

 

 

 
Well you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missin’ home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go

Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you’ll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast
You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you’ll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies
But you only need the light when it’s burning low

Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missin’ home
Only know you love her when you let her go

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
‘Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast
Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
‘Cause you loved her too much
And you dived too deep
Well you only need the light when it’s burning low

Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missin’ home
Only know you love her when you let her go

And you let her go (oh, oh, ooh, oh no)
And you let her go (oh, oh, ooh, oh no)
Will you let her go?
‘Cause you only need the light when it’s burning low

Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missin’ home
Only know you love her when you let her go

‘Cause you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missin’ home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go
