I Go/Pergi

I watched Yasmin’s Ahmad’s latest movie “Talentime” with CN- recently and we totally love this song. It has both an english version called I Go by Pete Teo and a Malay version called Pergi by Aizat.

Funny how the lyrics are quite the opposite. The english version is about a person is leaving, and the Malay version is about a person being left behind.

I Go – Pete Teo

G – D/F# – C/add9 – G
So long, fare thee well
Em – G – Am – D
The dancer and the dancing days have taken leave and fell
G – D/F# – C/add9 – G
So turn down this bed of stone
Em – Am – C – D – G – Am – Am/B
Quench me with the deadly nightshade from the rose that you belong

C – G – Am – Am
The long December rain is falling now
C – G – Em – Em
Running down on streets to nowhere
C – G – Am – Am
Music is my life, you’re my sweetest nightingale
Bm7flat5 – E7 – Am – Am/B – C
But I can’t hear it here no more
G – D/F# – C/add9 – C/add9
And I go
G – D/F# – C/add9 – C/add9
I go

Hush now, don’t shake or break
Words have fallen silent like soldiers to the grave
No matter what they do or say
Lay me on the sleepy meadow by the tracks upon your face

Pergi – Aizat

Sayu terpisah
Hikayat indah kini hanya tinggal sejarah
Berhembus angin rindu
Begitu nyamannya terhidu wangian kasihmu

Hujan lebat mencurah kini
Bagaikan tiada henti
Kaulah laguku kau irama terindah
Tak lagi kudengari
Kau pergi.. pergi..

Sepi tanpa kata
Terdiam dan kaku tak daya kau kulupa
Apa pun kata mereka
Biarkan kenangan berbunga di ranting usia

White Horse

This is probably the first Taylor Swift song I heard on Grey’s Anatomy. Love the tune, background guitar arrangements as well as her voice 😉

Say you’re sorry, that face of an angel
Comes out just when you need it to
As I paced back and forth all this time
Cause I honestly believed in you

Holding on, the days dragged on
Stupid girl, I should have known
I should have known

I’m not a princess, this ain’t a fairy tale
I’m not the one you’ll sweep off her feet
Lead her up the stairwell
This ain’t Hollywood, this is a small town
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
Now it’s too late for you and your white horse,
To come around

Baby I was naive, got lost in your eyes
Never really had a chance
My mistake, I didnt know to be in love
You had to fight to have the upper hand

I had so many dreams about you and me
Happy endings, now I know

I’m not a princess, this ain’t a fairy tale
I’m not the one you’ll sweep off her feet
Lead her up the stairwell
This ain’t Hollywood, this is a small town
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down
Now it’s too late for you and your white horse,
To come around

And there you are on your knees
Begging for forgiveness, begging for me
Just like I alwyas wanted but I’m so sorry

Cause, I’m not your princess, this ain’t a fairytale
I’m gonna find someone someday who might actually treat me well
This is a big world, that was a small town
There in my rearview mirror disappearing now

And it’s too late for you and your white horse
Now it’s too late for you and your white horse, to catch me now

Oh, whoa whoa whoa
Try and catch me now
Oh it’s too late to catch me now

~ White Horse, by Taylor Swift

Just breathe

This is the 2nd time I heard Anna Nalick’s “Breathe (2 A.M)” on NTV7 with Grey’s Anatomy scenes playing in the background. I first heard of this song in one of the Grey’s Anatomy episodes in the earlier seasons. Loved this song so much that it’s my ringtone when CN- calls.

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 criticize,
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 your hands
And breathe… just breathe,
Oh breathe, just breathe

May he turned 21 on the base at Fort Bliss
“Just a day” he said 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,
Oh breathe, just breathe

There’s a light at each end of this tunnel,
You shout ’cause you’re just as far in as you’ll ever be out
And 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, it’s no longer inside of me,
Threatening the life it belongs 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

But 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,
Oh breathe, just breathe.

The Climb

One of my current favourite songs…

I can almost see it
The dream I’m dreaming
But there’s a voice inside my head saying
“You’ll never reach it”

Every step I’m taking
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking

But I gotta keep trying
Gotta keep my head held high

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

The struggles I’m facing
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes might knock me down
But no, I’m not breaking

I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I’m gonna remember most, yeah
Just gotta keep going

And I, I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on

‘Cause there’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Sometimes I’m gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb, yeah!

There’s always gonna be another mountain
I’m always gonna wanna make it move
Always gonna be an uphill battle
Somebody’s gonna have to lose

Ain’t about how fast I get there
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb, yeah!

Keep on moving, keep climbing
Keep the faith, baby
It’s all about, it’s all about the climb
Keep the faith, keep your faith, whoa

~ The Climb by Miley Cyrus

Anaesthetic Hymn

Found this really funny song on You Tube…

Everybody wonders what anaesthetists do
While the patient is asleep
Everybody wonders what we do for three hours
While that machine goes beep
Everybody reckons we drink coffee and we gossip
And we’re generally subversive
Everybody reckons we do crosswords and sudoku’s
And we chat up all the nurses

But do you really think that’s all we do?
Well let me tell you now, it isn’t true

Cause we sometimes check the screen
And every now and then, we write stuff
And if we have to intervene
We inject a bit of white stuff
And we offer to alter the light
Or the height of the bed
Or fiddle with the radio, change the CD
we even check the patient occasionally
And if they move, we turn up the vapor
And then we go back, to reading the paper
Cause when the patient’s asleep
we just sit and listen to the beep
we just sit and listen to the

Once upon a time I took pride in my job
but now I think it’s time to depart
Cause I just sit here every day
and listen to blips of the heart

Anaesthetic Hymn by Amateur Transplants

Sung to the tune of Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler

Love Story

This is one of my current favourite songs 🙂

We were both young when I first saw you
I close my eyes and the flashback starts
I’m standing there
On a balcony of summer air

See the lights, see the party, the ball gowns
I see you make your way through the crowd
You say hello
Little did I know

That you were Romeo, you were throwing pebbles
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
And I was crying on the staircase
Begging you please don’t go, and I said

Romeo, take me somewhere we can be alone
I’ll be waiting, all there’s left to do is run
You’ll be the prince and I’ll be the princess
It’s a love story, baby just say “yes”

So I sneak out to the garden to see you
We keep quiet because we’re dead if they know
So close your eyes
Let’s keep this down for a little while

Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter
And my daddy said stay away from Juliet
But you were everything to me
And I was begging you, please don’t go and I said

Romeo take me somewhere we can be alone
I’ll be waiting, all there’s left to do is run
You be the prince and I’ll be the princess
It’s a love story, baby just say “yes”

Romeo save me, don’t try to tell me how it feels
This love is difficult, but its so real
Don’t be afraid we’ll make it out of this mess
It’s a love story baby just say “yes”

Oh, oh

I got tired of waiting
Wondering if you were ever coming around
My faith in you was fading
When I met you on the outskirts of town, and I said

Romeo save me I’ve been feeling so alone
I keep waiting for you but you never come
Is this in my head, I don’t know what to think
He knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring and said

Marry me Juliet, you’ll never have to be alone
I love you and that’s all I really know
I talked to your dad you’ll pick out the white dress
It’s a love story baby just say “yes”
oh, oh, yes

We were both young when I first saw you

The Story

I first heard this song on Grey’s Anatomy Season 3 Special, where it was the ending video clip. Love the song as well as the lyrics.

This song is dedicated to someone special…

=
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
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 but you do
And I was made for you…

~ Brandi Carlile – The Story
