    You've got the words to change a nation
    but you're biting your tongue
    You've spent a life time stuck in silence
    afraid you'll say something wrong
    If no one ever hears it how we gonna learn your song?
    So come on, come on
    Come on, come on
    You've got a heart as loud as lions
    So why let your voice be tamed?
    Baby we're a little different
    there's no need to be ashamed
    You've got the light to fight the shadows
    so stop hiding it away
    Come on, Come on

    I wanna sing, I wanna shout
    I wanna scream till the words dry out
    so put it in all of the papers,
    I'm not afraid
    they can read all about it
    read all about it oh

    At night we're waking up the neighbours
    while we sing away the blues
    making sure that we remember yeah
    cause we all matter too
    if the truth has been forbidden
    then we're breaking all the rules
    so come on, come on
    come on, come on,
    lets get the tv and the radio
    to play our tune again
    its 'bout time we got some airplay of our version of events
    there's no need to be afraid
    I will sing with you my friend
    Come on, come on

    I wanna sing, I wanna shout
    I wanna scream till the words dry out
    so put it in all of the papers,
    I'm not afraid
    they can read all about it
    read all about it oh

    Yeah we're all wonderful, wonderful people
    so when did we all get so fearful?
    Now we're finally finding our voices
    so take a chance, come help me sing this
    Yeah we're all wonderful, wonderful people
    so when did we all get so fearful?
    and now we're finally finding our voices
    so take a chance, come help me sing this

    I wanna scream till the words dry out
    so put it in all of the papers,

  • we just have to wait and see :)

    13 mars 2012, 11h25m

    This is the first day of my life
    I swear I was born right in the doorway
    I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
    They're spreading blankets on the beach

    Yours is the first face that I saw
    I think I was blind before I met you
    Now I don't know where I am
    I don't know where I've been
    But I know where I want to go

    And so I thought I'd let you know
    That these things take forever
    I especially am slow
    But I realize that I need you
    And I wondered if I could come home

    Remember the time you drove all night
    Just to meet me in the morning
    And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
    You felt as if you'd just woke up
    And you said "this is the first day of my life
    I'm glad I didn't die before I met you
    But now I don't care I could go anywhere with you
    And I'd probably be happy"

    So if you want to be with me
    With these things there's no telling
    We just have to wait and see
    But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
    Than waiting to win the lottery
    Besides maybe this time is different
    I mean I really think you like me

    First Day of My Life
  • vẫn còn xuân đấy, vẫn trái tim này thiết tha

    30 oct. 2011, 13h17m

    Này em nhìn xem đời ta còn bao nhiêu ngày
    Lòng ta còn bao nhiêu ngày để yêu?
    Mà vẫn hân hoan mùa xuân nở ra môi cười
    Lòng son còn nguyên dâng người hết thôi.

    Có khi yêu như là yêu lần cuối
    Và như là yêu lần mới đâu ngờ.
    Cứ yêu như là em chờ ta từ kiếp nào
    Và ta vì em tương tư lần đầu.

    Nhìn ra xuân đã mơn man đầy tay
    Nói yêu em ngần ngại
    Thì thôi xin thức đêm xuân gọi suốt tên em.

    Thức cùng xuân để biết lòng xuân, biết lòng ta đang nhớ
    Nhớ một đêm là nhớ ngàn thu, vì em nhan sắc ấy.
    Trút lòng son vào khối tình câm, sẽ một hôm em biết
    Sẽ một hôm tình hóa đàn chim bay đến...

    Đến đánh thức một nhan sắc, chiếc hôn ngân dài
    Chắc tình yêu ấy tái sinh ta lại
    Chắc nụ hôn ấy dìm em trong giấc mơ êm và ấm áp
    Sẽ đánh thức tình em đấy, chắc em không ngại
    Vẫn còn xuân đấy, vẫn trái tim này thiết tha

    Thì ta hóa chung nhịp tim hòa chung nhịp đêm.

    Tình Ca
  • ...xin âu lo không về qua đây...xin thương yêu dâng thành mê say...

    24 oct. 2011, 10h25m

    Bờ vai ơi đừng quá nghiêng nghiêng
    Đánh rơi buổi chiều thơm ngát
    Làn môi ơi đừng quá run run
    Lỡ tia nắng hồng tan mất

    Xin âu lo không về qua đây
    Xin thương yêu dâng thành mê say
    Xin cho ta nhìn ngắm lung linh
    Từ đáy đôi mắt....rất trong

    Bàn tay em là cánh sen thơm
    Ướp trong vòng đêm mái tóc
    Nụ thanh xuân còn ấp e nơi
    Nét xinh áo lụa thơ ngây

    Xin trăm năm em về tinh khôi
    Đôi tay ta dang rộng hân hoan
    Xin cho ta một khắc reo ca
    Vui cùng em

    Vì biết đâu có đôi lúc em xa vời vợi
    Biết đâu có đôi lúc con tim nghẹn lời
    Biết đâu có đôi lúc ta quên chờ đợi
    Kề bên nhau quên một chiếc hôn
    Biết đâu sớm mai nắng nghe phơi cuộc tình
    Biết đâu sớm mai gió tan cơn mộng lành
    Biết đâu biết đâu đấy xin em lòng thành
    Và xin cất lấy trái tim nay... Nhớ nhung... phút giây

    Vì biết đâu cánh mây trắng yêu em gọi mời
    Biết đâu gió tha thiết mang em về trời
    Biết đâu bỗng em thấy tim ta chật chội
    Và em tan đi cùng ánh sương....
    Biết đâu bỗng em thấy đôi chân mỏi mệt
    Biết đâu bỗng em thấy sông Thương cạn kiệt
    Biết đâu bỗng mưa nắng gieo tim buồn phiền
    Và em sẽ cất cánh tung trời... Hóa thân... giấc mơ

    Và em sẽ cất cánh phương nào... thênh thang... mây khói

    Em Về Tinh Khôi
  • và nhớ, nhớ bao khuôn mặt mến thân đã quen bước chân giọng nói

    22 oct. 2011, 12h02m

    Dù có đi bốn phương trời,
    lòng vẫn nhớ về Hà Nội,
    Hà Nội của ta, Thủ Đô yêu dấu,
    một thời đạn bom, một thời hòa bình...

    Nhớ phố thâm nghiêm rợp bóng cây,
    tiếng ve ru những trưa hè.
    Và nhớ những công viên vừa mới xây,
    bước chân em chưa mòn lối.
    Ôi nhớ Hồ Gươm xanh thắm,
    nơi Tháp Rùa nghiêng soi bóng,
    thành cũ Thăng Long,
    hồn nước non thiêng
    còn lắng đâu đây dấu xưa oai hùng.

    Hà Nội ơi!
    Nhớ những cơn mưa dài cuối đông,
    áo chăn chưa ấm thân mình.
    Và nhớ lúc bom rơi thời chiến tranh,
    đất rung ngói tan gạch nát.
    Em vẫn đạp xe ra phố,
    anh vẫn tìm âm thanh mới.
    Bài hát đôi ta là khúc quân ca,
    là ước mơ xa hướng lên Ba Đình,
    tràn niềm tin!

    Nhớ những con đê thành lối xe,
    bước chân năm tháng đi về.
    Và nhớ tiếng leng keng tàu sớm khuya
    hướng ra Đống Đa, Cầu Giấy.

    Ôi nhớ Thủ Đô năm ấy,
    ta đánh giặc trên mâm pháo,
    truyền thống cha ông gìn giữ non sông
    từ thuở Thăng Long vẫn mang trong lòng,

    Hà Nội ơi!
    Nhớ phố Quang Trung đường Nguyễn Du
    những đêm hoa sữa thơm nồng.
    Và nhớ, nhớ bao khuôn mặt mến thân
    đã quen bước chân giọng nói.

    Ôi nhớ chiều ba mươi Tết,
    chen giữa đào hoa tươi thắm,
    đường phố đông vui chờ đón Tân niên,
    là phút thiêng liêng lắng nghe thơ người.

    Hà Nội ơi!

    Nhớ Về Hà Nội
  • swing, swing, swing the spinning step ~ you wear those shoes and i will wear that…

    16 août 2011, 11h27m

    Kiss me out of the bearded barley
    Nightly, beside the green, green grass
    Swing, swing, swing the spinning step
    You wear those shoes and I will wear that dress.

    Oh, kiss me beneath the milky twilight
    Lead me out on the moonlit floor
    Lift your open hand
    Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance
    Silver moon's sparkling
    So kiss me

    Kiss me down by the broken tree house
    Swing me upon its hanging tire
    Bring, bring, bring your flowered hat
    We'll take the trail marked on your father's map

    Kiss Me
  • là la lá la là la la tôi thèm làm người điên

    10 avr. 2011, 1h09m

    Xin hãy đến đây tôi kể cho nghe
    câu chuyện về một người em gái xinh
    Em làm mùa xuân chín
    trong nụ cười tươi sáng
    Em rạo rực nghìn năm,
    trong mùa hạ tình yêu
    Em nhìn tựa mưa thu,
    trao tình cùng cây lá
    Đông dành tặng riêng em,
    những khát khao miên trường

    Và xin hãy đến đây tôi kể cho nghe
    Câu chuyện về một người điên rất vui
    Cô yêu từng hàng cây,
    trò chuyện cùng hòn đá
    Cô mong làm mây bay
    hóa kiếp thành con gió
    Cô yêu vạn người dưng,
    yêu thêm ngàn người điên
    Yêu tuổi trẻ bỏ hoang,
    cùng kiếp sống ơ hờ...

    là la lá la là la la... tôi yêu người em gái
    là la lá la là la la... tôi thèm làm người điên

    Nghe Tôi Kể Này
  • can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?

    17 mars 2011, 3h21m

    Can we pretend that airplanes
    In the night sky
    Are like shooting stars?
    I could really use a wish right now
    Wish right now
    Wish right now
    Can we pretend that airplanes
    In the night sky
    Are like shooting stars?
    I could really use a wish right now
    Wish right now
    Wish right now

    [Verse 1: B.o.B]
    Ya, I could use a dream or a genie or a wish
    To go back to a place much simpler than this
    'Cause after all the partyin' and smashin' and crashin'
    And all the glitz and the glam and the fashion
    And all the pandemonium and all the madness
    There comes a time where you fade to the blackness
    And when you starin' at that phone in your lap
    And you hopin' but them people never call you back
    But that's just how the story unfolds
    You get another hand soon after you fold
    And when your plans unravel in the sand
    What would you wish for if you had one chance?
    So airplane, airplane, sorry I'm late
    I'm on my way so don't close that gate
    If I don't make that then I'll switch my flight
    And I'll be right back at it by the end of the night

    [Chorus: Hayley Williams (B.o.B)]
    Can we pretend that airplanes
    In the night sky
    Are like shooting stars? (Shooting stars)
    I could really use a wish right now (Wish right now)
    Wish right now (Wish right now)
    Wish right now (Wish right now)
    Can we pretend that airplanes
    In the night sky
    Are like shooting stars? (Shooting Stars)
    I could really use a wish right now (Wish right now)
    Wish right now (Wish right now)
    Wish right now (Wish right now)

    [Verse 2: B.o.B]
    Ya, ya, somebody take me back to the days
    Befo' this was a job, befo' I got paid
    Befo' it ever mattered what I had in my bank
    Ya, back when I was tryin' to get a tip at Subway
    And back when I was rappin' for the hell of it
    But nowadays we rappin' to stay relevant
    I'm guessin' that if we can make some wishes outta' airplanes
    Then maybe oh maybe I'll go back to the days
    Befo' the politics that we call the rap game
    And back when ain't nobody listen to my mixtape
    And back befo' I tried to cover up my slang
    But this is fo' the hater, what's up Bobby Ray?
    So can I get a wish
    To end the politics
    And get back to the music
    That started this shit?
    So here I stand and then again I say
    I'm hopin' we can make some wishes outta' airplanes

    [Chorus: Hayley Williams (B.o.B)]
    Can we pretend that airplanes
    In the night sky
    Are like shooting stars? (Shooting Stars)
    I could really use a wish right now (Wish right now)
    Wish right now (Wish right now)
    Wish right now (Wish right now)
    Can we pretend that airplanes
    In the night sky
    Are like shooting stars? (Shooting Stars)
    I could really use a wish right now (Wish right now)
    Wish right now (Wish right now)
    Wish right now (Wish right now)

    [Outro: B.o.B]
    I could really use a wish right now
    (I could really use a wish right now)
    I-I-I could really use a wish right now
    (I could really use a wish right now)
    Like, like, like shootin' stars
    (Like shootin' stars)
    I-I-I-I could really use a wish right now
    (I could really use a wish right now)
    A wish, a wish right now
    (A wish right now)

  • why would i wanna destroy something i help build?

    8 fév. 2011, 3h44m

    Step by step, heart to heart, left right left
    We all fall down...

    [Chorus]
    Step by step, heart to heart, left right left
    We all fall down like toy soldiers
    Bit by bit, torn apart, we never win
    But the battle wages on for toy soldiers

    [Verse 1]
    I'm supposed to be the soldier who never blows his composure
    Even though I hold the weight of the whole world on my shoulders
    I ain't never supposed to show it, my crew ain't supposed to know it
    Even if it means goin' toe to toe with a Benzino it don't matter
    I'd never drag them in battles that I can handle unless I absolutely have to
    I'm supposed to set an example
    I need to be the leader, my crew looks for me to guide 'em
    If some shit ever does pop off, I'm supposed to be beside 'em
    That Ja shit I tried to squash it, it was too late to stop it
    There's a certain line you just don't cross and he crossed it
    I heard him say Hailie's name on a song and I just lost it
    It was crazy, this shit went way beyond some Jay-z and Nas shit
    And even though the battle was won, I feel like we lost it
    I spent too much energy on it, honestly I'm exhausted
    And I'm so caught in it I almost feel I'm the one who caused it
    This ain't what I'm in hip-hop for, it's not why I got in it
    That was never my object for someone to get killed
    Why would I wanna destroy something I help build
    It wasn't my intentions, my intentions was good
    I went through my whole career without ever mentionin' Suge
    And that was just out of respect for not runnin' my mouth
    And talkin' about something that I knew nothing about
    Plus Dre told me stay out, this just wasn't my beef
    So I did, I just fell back, watched and gritted my teeth
    While he's all over t.v. down talkin' a man who literally saved my life
    Like fuck it i understand this is business
    And this shit just isn't none of my business
    But still knowin' this shit could pop off at any minute cause

    [Chorus]

    [Verse 2]
    There used to be a time when you could just say a rhyme
    And wouldn't have to worry about one of your people dyin'
    But now it's elevated cause once you put someone's kids in it
    The shit gets escalated, it ain't just words no more is it?
    It's a different ball game, callin' names and you ain't just rappin'
    We actually tried to stop the 50 and Ja beef from happenin'
    Me and Dre had sat with him, kicked it and had a chat with him
    And asked him not to start it he wasn't gonna go after him
    Until Ja started yappin' in magazines how we stabbed him
    Fuck it 50 smash 'em, mash 'em and let him have it
    Meanwhile my attention is pullin' in other directions
    Some receptionist at The Source who answers phones at his desk
    Has an erection for me and thinks that I'll be his resurrection
    Tries to blow the dust off his mic and make a new record
    But now he's fucked the game up cause one of the ways I came up
    Was through that publication the same one that made me famous
    Now the owner of it has got a grudge against me for nothin'
    Well fuck it, that motherfucker can get it too, fuck him then
    But I'm so busy being pissed off I don't stop to think
    That we just inherited 50's beef with Murder Inc.
    And he's inherited mine which is fine ain't like either of us mind
    We still have soldiers that's on the front line
    That's willing to die for us as soon as we give the orders
    Never to extort us, strictly to show they support us
    We'll maybe shout 'em out in a rap or up in a chorus
    To show them we love 'em back and let 'em know how important it is
    To have Runyan Avenue, soldiers up in our corners
    Their loyalty to us is worth more than any award is
    But I ain't tryna have none of my people hurt and murdered
    It ain't worth it, I can't think of a perfecter way to word it
    Then to just say that I love ya'll too much to see the verdict
    I'll walk away from it all before I let it go any further
    But don't get it twisted, it's not a plea that I'm coppin'
    I'm just willin' to be the bigger man
    If ya'll can quit poppin' off at the jaws, well then I can
    Cause frankly I'm sick of talkin'
    I'm not gonna let someone else's coffin rest on my conscience cause

    [Chorus]Like Toy Soldiers
  • i see your True colors that's why i love you

    12 août 2010, 0h49m

    You with the sad eyes
    Don't be discouraged
    Oh I realize
    It's hard to take courage
    In a world full of people
    You can lose sight of it all
    And the darkness, inside you
    Can make you feel so small

    But I see your true colors
    Shining through
    I see your true colors
    And that's why I love you
    So don't be afraid to let them show
    Your true colors
    True colors are beautiful,
    Like a rainbow

    Show me a smile then,
    Don't be unhappy, can't remember
    When I last saw you laughing
    If this world makes you crazy
    And you've taken all you can bear
    You call me up
    Because you know I'll be there

    And I'll see your true colors
    Shining through
    I see your true colors
    And that's why I love you
    So don't be afraid to let them show
    Your true colors
    True colors are beautiful,
    Like a rainbow

    So sad eyes
    Discouraged now
    Realize

    When this world makes you crazy
    And you've taken all you can bear
    You call me up
    Because you know I'll be there

    And I'll see your true colors
    Shining through
    I see your true colors
    And that's why I love you
    So don't be afraid to let them show
    Your true colors
    True colors, true colors

    Cos there's a shining through
    I see your true colors
    And that's why I love you
    So don't be afraid to let them show
    Your true colors, true colors
    True colors are beautiful.

    True Colors
