Sun been down for days
A pretty flower in a vase
A slipper by the fireplace
A cello lying in it’s case

Soon she’s down the stairs
Her morning elegance she wears
The sound of water makes her dream
Awoken by a cloud of steam
She pours a daydream in a cup
A spoon of sugar sweetens up

And she fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
As she goes in a store
With a thought she has caught
By a thread
She pays for the bread
And she goes…
Nobody knows

Sun been down for days
A winter melody she plays
The thunder makes her contemplate
She hears a noise behind the gate
Perhaps a letter with a dove
Perhaps a stranger she could love

And she fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
As she goes in a store
With a thought she has caught
By a thread
She pays for the bread
And she goes…
Nobody knows

And she fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
Where people are pleasently strange
And counting the change
And she goes…
Nobody knows

No it don’t come easy
No it don’t come fast
Lock me up inside your garden
Take me to the real side

Fire burning me up
Desire taking me so much higher
And leaving me home

There you were in your black dress
Moving slow to the sadness
I could watch you dance for hours
I could take you by my side

Fire burning me up
Desire taking me so much higher
And leaving me

Its like fire turning me on
Desire taking me so much higher
And leaving me home

Fire by AUGUSTANA

Just when I needed a refreshing intake of good music, I discover this incredible musician.

His name is Gabe Bondoc, a Filipino residing in California.

Another one of those youTube artist with portfolios of amazing covers of Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours”, Chris Brown’s “Forever”, Colbie Caillat’s “Realize” and Christina Aguilera’s “Come On Over”.

One worthy mention is his rendition of Rihanna’s “Take A Bow”, where he tweaked the lyrics a bit to give  his interpretation of the male’s perpective.

Covers aside, I am absolutely hooked on his original compositions. “The One” has the whole Jason Mraz half scatting, half singing vibe going and his guitar skills is reminiscent of John Mayer’s.

But you be the judge. Go on and click play!

PS: Thanks for recommending him to me Jo!

The way you laugh with your mouth closed
The way you smile so your eyes glow
It’s in the way you look at me to help me see
Just who I am inside

The way my heart doesn’t listen
And so it just keeps wishing
Wishing you were close to me so that its beat was
Synchronized with yours

You’re the one, you’re the one for me.. sugar.

You’re my hero and my best friend
and girl I swear that you’re a Godsend
Lovely as a ray of sun.. the very first one
Just as the day begins

So I got a round trip ticket
But I don’t wanna take it
I only wanna take half
And give the other half to somebody who wont waste it.

You’re the one, you’re the one for me..

Your hand and mine fit perfectly fine
And sway below our waists at the perfect height

Faithful and true
to Him and to you
I will stay forever this way because..

You’re the one, you’re the one for me

Beautiful Disaster by Jon McLaughlin

She loves her mama’s lemonade
Hates the sound that goodbyes make
She prays one day she’ll find someone to need her
She swears that there’s no difference
Between the lies and compliments
It’s all the same if everybody leaves her

And every magazine tells her she’s not good enough
The pictures that she sees make her cry

And she would change everything, everything just ask her
Caught in the in between, a beautiful disaster
And she just needs someone to take her home

She’s giving boys what they want, tries to act so nonchalant
Afraid they’ll see that she’s lost her direction
She never stays the same for long
Assuming that she’ll get it wrong
Perfect only in her imperfections

She’s not a drama queen
She doesn’t want to feel this way, only seventeen but tired

She would change everything for happy ever after
Caught in the in between, a beautiful disaster
But she just needs someone to take her home

Cause she’s just the way she is, but no one’s told her that’s okay

And she would change everything, everything just ask her
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster
And she would change everything for happy ever after
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster

But she just needs someone to take her home
And she just needs someone to take her home

Many young girls out there are prone to succumbing to their insecurities because of society’s harsh implications.

Now more than ever, the media seems to have placed immense pressure on girls out there; imposing on them the media’s idea of what a girl should look, or feel, or think like.

In most times, it is also our choice of words and actions that leads to someone else’s downfall. If we only pause to think and consider the consequences, we can very well save a person from reaching breaking point.

Therefore;
Mothers,
Choose your words wisely,
Your daughters listen to you more often than you think

Fathers,
Be gentle with the hold you have on your daughters
Their struggle to break free is nothing compared to the struggle you will face when they have broken free from you

Brothers,
Be tactful with the taunting
The innocent teasing and mockery carries more weight than you realize

Girlfriends,
Hold your tongue from gossip and malice,
The ethics of reciprocity applies here;
Do not do unto your sister what you would not want her to do unto you

Husbands,
Respect your wives,
For she is the one you call love, the mother of your children and the heart of your family

With love & respect for all women out there,
Josh
