I’m tired playing this mind games

I’m tired playing this mind games,

Doing this and that, for what purpose, I know not;

Who are you? Tell me the real you,

No pretensions, no sugarcoating.

Tell me who you are,

Are you ready to be vulnerable?

In the midst of the people surrounding you,

they’re quite numerous to count..

But who are you, when no one’s watching..

Are you still the same sanguine?

Or are you the soft-heart one..

The kind, and loving, yet strong but assertive?

The smart-thinking and reserved?

The light reflecting the sun and the moon in the dark,

Or are you the wind beneath my wings?

Ready to stretch your arms before I fall towards your gravity,

Do you ever think of me, like how I watch over you,

But worry not, I won’t force myself to you..

I will not.. But I can be your friend, if that’s all there is,

If your heart belongs to someone else,

I would gladly accept my fate..

You and I in this world full of tears and joy,

You and I, as friends…

You are a treasure,

yet to be discovered, by any pirate in the seven seas,

But I’m blessed because I had the strength to communicate with the real you..

Though I’m not sure my stand per your view,

I will treasure this friendship until my last breath.

I don’t wanna wait

Aicelle Santos – I Don’t Wanna Wait

Lyrics:
So open up your morning light,
And say a little prayer for right
You know that if we are to stay alive
Then see the peace in every eye…
doo doo doo doo do doo do do
do doo doo doo doo dooo doo ooh
She had two babies, one was six months,
one was three In the war of ’44…
Every telephone ring, every heartbeat stinging
When she thought it was God calling her
Oh, would her son grow to know his father?
[CHORUS:]
I don’t want to wait for our lives to be over,
I want to know right now, what will it be?
I don’t want to wait for our lives to be over,
Will it be yes or will it be…sorry?
doo doo oooh doo ooh do do ooh
He showed up all wet on the rainy front step
Wearing shrapnel in his skin
And the war he saw lives inside him still,
It’s so hard to be gentle and warm
The years pass by and now he has granddaughters
[CHORUS]
You look at me from across the room
You’re wearing your anguish again
Believe me I know the feeling
It sucks you into the jaws of anger(oooooooh)
So breathe a little more deeply my love
All we have is this very moment
And I don’t want to do what his father,
And his father, and his father did,
I want to be here now
So open up your morning light,
And say a little prayer for right
You know that if we are to stay alive,
And see the peace in every eye…
[CHORUS x2]
doo doo doo dooo oooh
do dooo doo doo doo doo dooo
do doooo oooh doo doo doo do dooo do do
So open up your morning light,
And say a little prayer for right
You know that if we are to stay alive
Then see the love in every eye…
I love how the artist named Aicelle sang this song. Her voice is raspy and very warm to hear. It’s not so diva like voice. I realized that it’s possible to sing a song without shouting or hitting the very high notes to shiver some timbers. Her voice hits the low notes but still hits the other notes correctly. I’m not sure on what key the song was played but I like it. I wanna perform this song someday too. I will study this. 🙂 I want to watch her sing in person someday.. I’m already a fan. This song inspired me this week by the way, despite my struggles.. because adulting is hard. Sooo hard.
Can I just go back to the time where I was just a kid? Where my problems are just to eat on time, do my assignments and sleep early so I can rise up early, and where the things I play are just paper and barbie dolls, pico, chinese garter and luksong baka at tinik and other childish games..
