#SongLyricSunday | Help, I’m Alive – Metric

I might have to start a second blog if I keep this up, there are just too many good words to choose from that it’s hard to decide. This is my second post for today’s theme, which is:

Bounty | Dessert | Eat | Feast | Food | Hungry | Turkey

If you missed my first post, you can find it here: Written In The Stars – Tinie Tempah

For this second post, I’ve chosen the first song I ever heard by the Canadian rock band, Metric called “Help, I’m alive.” There aren’t many lyrics to the song, just the same handful on repeat, yet it’s still catchy and even though I don’t listen to it often, when it does come on, I’m like “Oh, I love this song!”

Fun Facts via Wikipedia:

  • Despite being the lead single off of their 4th studio album, “Help, I’m Alive” was Metric’s first song to ever chart in the US, hitting #17 on the Billboard Alternative Songs.
  • The song was written by lead singer, Emily Haines while soul searching in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
  • The song reached an even larger audience by being played on multiple hit TV shows like One Tree Hill, Beverly Hills 90210, Grey’s Anatomy, and The Vampire Diaries. It was also featured on the popular video game NBA 2K10.
  • Even though it was released in 2008/2009, it was used by the BBC for the 2nd season trailer of “Line of Duty” in 2014, and the acoustic version was used in 2016 in a video for the United Network for Organ Sharing.

Enjoy!

I tremble

They’re gonna eat me alive

If I stumble

They’re gonna eat me alive

Can you hear my heart beating like a hammer?
Beating like a hammer

Help I’m alive, my heart keeps beating like a hammer
Hard to be soft
Tough to be tender
Come take my pulse, the pace is on a runaway train
Help I’m alive my heart keeps beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer

If you’re still alive
My regrets are few
If my life is mine
What shouldn’t I do?
I get wherever I’m going
I get whatever I need
While my blood’s still flowing
And my heart’s still beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer

Help I’m alive, my heart keeps beating like a hammer
Hard to be soft
Tough to be tender
Come take my pulse, the pace is on a runaway train
Help I’m alive, my heart keeps beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer

If you’re still alive
My regrets are few
If my life is mine
What shouldn’t I do?
I get wherever I’m going
I get whatever I need
While my blood’s still flowing
And my heart’s still
Beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer

I tremble

They’re gonna eat me alive

If I stumble

They’re gonna eat me alive

Can you hear my heart beating like a hammer?
Beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer
Beating like a hammer
Help I’m alive, my heart keeps beating like a hammer

#SongLyricSunday | Written In The Stars – Tinie Tempah ft. Eric Turner

Happy Thanksgiving to all who will be digging into their feasts this coming Thursday! I’m personally not a big fan of turkey, but I love everything else that comes with the holiday. Deviled eggs and stuffing, mashed taters, gravy, biscuits, apple cider and pie…all that pie! LOL I know most families have their own traditional dishes, so I hope you all get some of your favorites!

Of course, our host Jim has given us a list of words to choose from this week in honor of the holiday – none of which has anything to do with football, though I totally could’ve worked with that. 😀 There are so many words, that I couldn’t decided so will be publishing 2 separate #SLS posts. Make sure to stop by Jim’s blog, A Unique Title For Me, by clicking on the theme link below to listen to all of the other songs picked for today!

This week’s theme is: Bounty | Dessert | Eat | Feast | Food | Hungry | Turkey

I’ve mentioned before that “Written In The Stars” was the first song I ever heard by English rapper, Tinie Tempah and it’s still one of my favorites of his to this day. I also think it’s quite fitting for the upcoming holiday, where we’re supposed to reflect on the things we’re thankful for. The song is an inspirational tale about coming up from nothing and working hard to make your dreams come true, and most importantly never giving up on them. It features American singer, Eric Turner for the chorus and piano.

Time for the Wikipedia facts:

  • “Written In The Stars” was released in 2010 as the third single off Tinie Tempah’s debut album, Disc-Overy.
  • It was his second #1 hit in the UK after “Pass Out,” debuting at #1 on the UK Singles Chart.
  • It was his first single to play in the US, reaching #12 on the Billboard Hot 100, and was in the top 10 on Billboard Mainstream Top 40.
  • “Written In The Stars” is certified Platinum in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, and Sweden. It’s 10x Platinum in Norway, and Gold in New Zealand.
  • In 2012, the song played during the London Olympic Games closing ceremony, and Tempah performed it live at Wembley Stadium for the FA Cup Final in 2016.

In an Interview with Tinie Tempah by the BBC, he explained his reference to Malorie Blackman:

  • When Tinie Tempah discovered that British Author, Malorie Blackman, also hailed from Peckham where he’d been born (though he grew up in Plumstead), he knew he had to include a reference to her in his song because his sister loved her book Noughts and Crosses. I don’t know if it’s considered ironic, but Blackman also penned a book titled Chasing the Stars. Her response to the song on Twitter was very positive and supportive, and she even thanked Tinie for giving her a “name check.”

My second pick for today is: “Help, I’m Alive” by Metric. Enjoy!

Oh written in the stars
A million miles away
A message to the mane
Oh
Seasons come and go
But I will never change
And I’m on my way

Let’s go
Yeah
You’re listening now
They say they ain’t heard nothing like this in a while
That’s why they play my song on so many different dials
‘Cause I got more fuckin’ hits than a disciplined child
When they see me everybody brrap’s, brraps
Man I’m like a young gun fully black Barrack
I cried tear drops over the massive attack
I only make hits like I work with a racket and bat
Look at my jacket and hat
So damn berserk
So down to earth
I’m bringing gravity back
Adopted by the major I want my family back
People work hard just to get all their salary taxed
Look I’m just a writer from the ghetto like Malory Blackman
Where the hells all the sanity at, damn
I used to be the kid that no one cared about
That’s why you have to keep screaming ’til they hear you out

Oh written in the stars
A million miles away
A message to the mane
Oh
Seasons come and go
But I will never change
And I’m on my way

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!

Yeah, I needed a change
When we ate we never took because we needed a change
I needed a break
For a sec’ I even gave up believing and praying
I even done illegal stuff and was leaded astray
They say the money is the root to the evilest ways
But have you ever been so hungry that it keeps you awake?
Mate, now my hunger would leave them amazed
Great, it feels like a long time coming, fam’
Since the day I thought of that cunning plan
One day I had a dream I tried to chase it
But I wasn’t going nowhere, running man!
I knew that maybe someday I would understand
Trying to turn a tenner to a hundred grand
Everyone’s a kid that no-one cares about
You just have to keep screaming ’til they hear you out

Oh written in the stars
A million miles away
A message to the mane
Oh
Seasons come and go
But I will never change
And I’m on my way

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!Oh seasons come and go
But I will never change
And I’m on my way

#SongLyricSunday | It Ends Tonight – All American Rejects

Make sure to stop by Jim’s blog, A Unique Title For Me, to check out all of the song choices for today!

This week’s theme is: Did | Didn’t | Do | Don’t | Does | Doesn’t

I’m picking an old hit from the All American Rejects today that still pops up in my library every now and again. I love the piano intro and never get tired of that part. Now for the fun Wikipedia facts:

“It Ends Tonight” was released in 2006 and was the last single off AAR’s second studio album, Move Along. It hit #8 on the Billboard Hot 100, giving the band their first top ten hit in the U.S. and Australia until they released “Gives You Hell” two years later.

The video was filmed in Nevada on the Moapa Indian Reservation. Despite being a pop ballad, it’s rather celebratory in nature, using an impromptu fireworks show and concert in the desert to emphasize the freedom and lightness brought to the narrator by ending a bad relationship.

It’s just one of those songs that I can listen to every once in awhile over the years and still like it the same as I did when it first came out. Enjoy!

Your subtleties
They strangle me
I can’t explain myself at all
And all the wants
And all the needs
All I don’t want to need at all

The walls start breathing
My mind’s un-weaving
Maybe it’s best you leave me alone
A weight is lifted
On this evening
I give the final blow

When darkness turns to light
It ends tonight
It ends tonight

A falling star
Least I fall alone
I can’t explain what you can’t explain
Your finding things that you didn’t know
I look at you with such disdain

The walls start breathing
My mind’s un-weaving
Maybe it’s best you leave me alone
A weight is lifted
On this evening
I give the final blow

When darkness turns to light
It ends tonight
It ends tonight
Just a little insight won’t make this right
It’s too late to fight
It ends tonight
It ends tonight

Now I’m on my own side
It’s better than being on your side
It’s my fault when you’re blind
It’s better that I see it through your eyes

All these thoughts locked inside
Now you’re the first to know

When darkness turns to light
It ends tonight
It ends tonight
Just a little insight won’t make this right
It’s too late to fight
It ends tonight
It ends

When darkness turns to light
It ends tonight
It ends tonight
Just a little insight won’t make this right
It’s too late to fight
It ends tonight

It ends tonight, tonight, insight

When darkness turns to light
It ends tonight

#SongLyricSunday | Try Again – Aaliyah

A big Thank You to our host, Jim over at A Unique Title For Me for another week of musical themes to challenge ourselves with. I was actually surprised I thought of a song right off the bat, since there are so many frequently used words to choose from. Make sure you click on the theme link below to check out all of the other song picks for today!

This week’s theme is: Could | Might | Should | Would

I went with Aaliyah’s “Try Again” from the Romeo Must Die soundtrack. This was one of the best movies when it came out, but then, I’m a fan of Jet Li, Aaliyah, and William Shakespeare so I’m biased. The movie was reportedly a ‘loose’ adaptation of Romeo & Juliet (I’d say extremely loose). Though it’s not my all-time favorite Aaliyah or Jet Li movie, if you’ve never seen it, I highly recommend it and have included the movie trailer at the end of this post.

Last October (2018) I did a post for #Rocktoberfest that went into more detail about the late and highly talented Aaliyah with an “Aaliyah Remembered video” that you can check out here. For those of you who didn’t know of her, she was yet another star still on the rise when she died in a tragic plane crash in 2001- just one year after the release of this song and following the filming of her second movie and blockbuster hit: The Queen of The Damned. I still remember watching the “Breaking News” broadcast and just feeling completely shocked. She was too young and so talented both in her acting and her singing career.

“Try Again” was the lead single from the Romeo Must Die movie soundtrack. It reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 & Hot 100 Airplay, #3 on the Mainstream Top 40, and was at #12 for the Year-End chart for 2000. The video features Timbaland, Aaliyah, and Jet Li. According to Wikipedia, the mirrored hall in the video was inspired by Bruce Lee’s Enter The Dragon. The video won the MTV Music Award for “Best Video From A Film” and “Best Female Video.” It was choreographed by Fatima Robinson, who has choreographed videos for Michael Jackson, Meghan Trainor, Mary J. Blige, The Black Eyed Peas, and more.

The section where Jet helps Aaliyah run on the wall was a reenactment of a scene from the movie and I just love the candidness they captured in the video of Jet laughing and them playing around with the move like a dance. Enjoy!

It’s been a long time (long time), we shouldn’t of left you (left you),
Without a dope beat to step to (step to, step to, step to, step to).
It’s been a long time (long time), we shouldn’t of left you (left you),
Without a dope beat to step to (step to, step to, step to, step to).

What would you do, to get to me?
What would you say, to have your way?
Would you give it up or try again?
If I hesitate to let you in?
Now would you be yourself, or play a role?
Tell all the boys, or keep it low?
If I say no, would you turn away,
Or play me off or would you stay?
Oh

If at first you don’t succeed (first you don’t succeed),
Dust yourself off, and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again
Cause if at first you don’t succeed (first you don’t succeed),
Dust yourself off, and try again
You can dust it off and try again, dust yourself off and try again, try again

I’m into you, you into me? But I can’t let it go, so easily.
Not ’till I see, where this could be, could be eternally, or just week.
You know our chemistry, it’s off the chain.
It’s perfect now, but will it change?
This ain’t a yes, this ain’t a no.
Just do your thang, and we’ll see how it goes.
Ooooh

If at first you don’t succeed (first you don’t succeed),
Dust yourself off, and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again
Cause if at first you don’t succeed (first you don’t succeed),
Dust yourself off, and try again
You can dust it off and try again, dust yourself off and try again, try again

See you don’t wanna throw it all away.
I might be shy on the first day,
But what about the next day? (huh, huh, huh, huh)
See you don’t wanna throw it all away.
I might be buggin’ on the first day,
But what about the next day? (huh, huh, huh, huh)

If at first you don’t succeed (first you don’t succeed),
Dust yourself off, and try again
You can dust it off and try again, try again
Cause if at first you don’t succeed (first you don’t succeed),
Dust yourself off, and try again
You can dust it off and try again, dust yourself off and try again, try again

It’s been a long time (long time), we shouldn’t of left you (left you),
Without a dope beat to step to (step to, step to, step to, step to)

#SongLyricSunday | Up In The Air – Thirty Seconds to Mars

From what I’ve seen, Jared Leto is not taking the new Joker movie very well, and I can’t say I blame him. It sounds like someone in Hollywood led him to believe that he’d be getting his own Joker movie after playing the role in Suicide Squad – and then, it didn’t happen. Poor Mr. J. 😦 At least they can’t keep him from making amazing music!

Make sure to click the link below to visit Jim’s blog, A Unique Title For me, and check out all of the other song picks for today!

This week’s theme is: Around | Down | Sideways | Up

Thirty Seconds to Mars is pretty well known for their unique–often cinematic–music videos, and this one is no exception. It’s actually award winning, according to Wikipedia and Jared Leto was reported as stating the video is a “celebration of art and movement.” All I know is that it’s not dull in any possible way. 😀 Plus, it’s got Dita Von Teese in it, and who doesn’t love her??? (I first saw her years ago on an episode of Oddities – it’s not odd for a burlesque dancer to have a feather fetish, is it?) The video also stars various artists from around the world, Olympic gymnasts, performers from Cirque du Soleil, and random wild animals – There is a section in the beginning of the credits dedicated to showing who is who with their names.

“Up in the Air” was the lead single off of the Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams album released in 2013, which offered 30S2M fans an evolved or newer sound than previous albums. While the video won accolades, the song never hit #1 on any of the charts, but did reach #3 on the Alternative Songs chart and #4 on the Rock Airplay chart (both Billboards).

Fun Fact: Jared Leto teamed up with NASA and the very first recorded copy of this song “premiered on the same day from the International Space Station, after being launched aboard a spacecraft loaded with scientific experiments and other equipment” – Wikipedia

Talk about being “up in the air” LOL. Enjoy!

I’ve been up in the air
Out of my head
Stuck in a moment of emotion I’ve destroyed
Is this the end I feel?

Up in the air
Fucked up our life
All of the laws I’ve broken, loves that I’ve sacrificed
Is this the end?

I wrap my hands around your neck so tight with love, love

A thousand times I’ve tempted fate
A thousand times I’ve played this game
A thousand times that I have said today, today, today

I’ve been up in the air
Lost in the night
I wouldn’t trade out for your lies you lost for my life
Is this the end?

You were the love of my life, the darkness, the light
This is a portrait of the tortured you and I
Is this the, is this the, is this the end?

I wrap my hands around your neck so tight with love, love, love

A thousand times I’ve tempted fate
A thousand times I’ve played this game
A thousand times that I have said today, today, today

A thousand times I’ve tempted fate
A thousand times I’ve played this game
A thousand times that I have said today, today, today

I’ve been up in the air
Is this the end I feel?
Up in the air
Chasing a dream so real
I’ve been up in the air (I wrap my hands around your neck)
Is this the end I feel?
Up in the air
Chasing a dream, Chasing a dream

Take no more
Take no more
Take no more
I’ll take no more

A thousand times I’ve tempted fate (I’ll take no more)
A thousand times I’ve played this game (I’ll take no more)
A thousand times that I have said today, today, today (I’ll take no more)

Today (I wrap my hands)
Today (hands around)
Today (your neck)
Today (with love, love)
Today (I’ll wrap my hands)
Today (around your neck)
Today (with love, love)
Today

I’ll wrap my hands around your neck

I’ll wrap my hands around your neck

I’ll wrap my hands around your neck so tight with love, love

#SongLyricSunday |Double Play

It’s #SLS time again, so hop over to Jim’s blog, A Unique Title For Me, by following the theme link below and check out all of today’s song choices.

This week’s theme is: Lost | Found | Hide | Seek

I have two this week, both favorites of mine that have been in my music library for quite awhile. Linkin Park’s “Roads Untraveled” is off of their Living Things album released in 2012. It was the first album showcasing LP’s “new” sound, and gave us hits like “Castle of Glass” and “Burn It Down” among others. Despite fan complaints over the new sound being too different from their original one, Living Things hit #1 on over 20 music charts around the world during its debut week – 4 charts in the US, alone. I was captured by the uniqueness of this song right away, the metallic chimes that remind me of some kind of steampunk music box invention combined with my favorite instrument, the piano, left me helplessly infatuated. I wish there were more lyrics, honestly, but it’s still a good song to listen to.

The song is sung mainly by Mike Shinoda with Chester Bennington as backup, until the final verse when it switches. Enjoy!

Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for paths left lone
‘Cause beyond every bend is a long blinding end
It’s the worst kind of pain I’ve known

Give up your heart left broken
And let that mistake pass on
‘Cause the love that you lost wasn’t worth what it cost
And in time you’ll be glad it’s gone

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa

Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for sights unseen
May your love never end and if you need a friend,
There’s a seat here alongside me

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa

♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪

“Give Me Love” by Ed Sheeran was one of the first songs I ever heard from the UK superstar. I’m one of those people who rarely listens to the radio, so I usually “happen” upon new music after falling down the rabbit hole that is YouTube. The song was a last minute addition to Ed’s debut studio album: + (Plus), and according to SongFacts, “fell out” of him in about 20 minutes. He didn’t even write it down. It hit #18 on the UK charts, #9 in Australia, and the video stars Australian actress, Isabel Lucas, known for her roles in Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen, Daybreakers, Red Dawn and more.

Enjoy!

Give me love like her
‘Cause lately I’ve been waking up alone
Paint splattered teardrops on my shirt
Told you I’d let them go
And that I’ll fight my corner
Maybe tonight I’ll call ya
After my blood turns into alcohol
No, I just wanna hold ya

Give a little time to me or burn this out
We’ll play hide and seek to turn this around
All I want is the taste that your lips allow
My, my, my, my, oh give me love
My, my, my, my, oh give me love
My, my, my, my, oh give me love

Give me love like never before
‘Cause lately I’ve been craving more
And it’s been a while but I still feel the same
Maybe I should let you go
You know I’ll fight my corner
And that tonight I’ll call ya
After my blood is drowning in alcohol
No I just wanna hold ya

Give a little time to me or burn this out
We’ll play hide and seek to turn this around
All I want is the taste that your lips allow
My, my, my, my, oh give me love

Give a little time to me, or burn this out
We’ll play hide and seek to turn this around
All I want is the taste that your lips allow
My, my, my, my, oh give me love
My, my, my, my, oh give me love
My, my, my, my, oh give me love

M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover

M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (love me, love me, love me)

M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (give me love)
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (give me love)
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (give me love, love me)
M-my my, m-my my, m-my my, give me love, lover (give me love)

My, my, my, my, oh give me love
My, my, my, my, oh give me love
My, my, my, my, oh give me love
My, my, my, my, oh give me love

#SongLyricSunday | “Reincarnate” – Motionless In White

Happy Spooktacular Sunday, ya’ll! 😀 It’s #SLS time again, so make sure you follow the theme link below to Jim’s blog, A Unique Title For Me, to check out today’s picks!

This week’s theme is: Lean | Sit | Stand

In the spirit of the upcoming All Hallow’s Eve, my pick this week was just as much for the lyrics as for the video. It’s 100% Halloween cinema-worthy. Plus, I just really like keeping everyone on their toes – Which genre will she pick this week? 😀 Released in 2014, “Reincarnate” is the title song of MIW’s album by the same name – the 3rd and final record under their original label, Fearless Records. Lead Singer, Chris Motionless, was quoted in an interview stating that they knew the album would be the one to make or break their band, so they decided to say “f**k it” and do it exactly the way they wanted to, not for anyone else. Turns out, that approach really paid off, as they’ve released 5 albums since and seem to gain more popularity with each new hit release.

Personally, Motionless In White is my favorite male screamo-gothic-metal band and those who follow me on Instagram and Twitter already know that I have a major crush on their lead guitarist, Ryan Sitkowski…

…and that he’s the inspiration behind the main antagonistic anti-hero/hero in my psychological romance WIP. But all that great reason aside, I like MIW mostly because their lyrics, while often brutally honest to the point of cynical about the world/society/people, are pretty spot on. They’re the perfect band to get me in the right mood when I need to tap into some raw, angry, defiant, or confrontational energy for one of my characters or scenes. While it would never stop me from listening to them, I’m glad Chris Motionless has come into more of his own look now, rather than this Marilyn Manson version. Enjoy!

Content Warning: Explicit language in parts. (Especially, in the funniest line of the whole song)

Get up
 
You pull the trigger just for fun
Forgetting I’m a loaded gun
So hate me for the things I’ve done
And not for what I’ve now become
 
I want this
I need this
I love it
 
Crawling from hell
Fallen from grace
And there is nothing left to take
Leaving the past to the grave
So we can reincarnate
 
You sit upon your throne of filth
Condemning what you haven’t built
So hate me cause you’re standing still
Watching while I shoot to kill
 
I live this
I breathe this
You crave it
 
Crawling from hell
Fallen from grace
And there is nothing left to take
Leaving the past to the grave
So we can reincarnate
 
There’s one thing you forget
You can’t make me play dead
I’ve swallowed your bullshit
No respect
You make me fucking sick
 
Give me a reason
 
I won’t bite my tongue
I am not afraid spineless
A dominion of nothing is all you will reign
You laugh but what did you create?
Bitch you give a fucking aspirin a headache
 
Through hell
From grace
There’s nothing left
 
Crawling from hell
Fallen from grace
There’s nothing left for you to take
Driving the nail through my mistakes
So we can reincarnate
 
When we lie down, we’re sore and sick
We fall down, sink or swim
Underground
The remedy for who we are
And what lies beneath
 
Reincarnate
