Five For Fighting – The Riddle

There are secrets that we still have left to find,
There have been mysteries from the beginning of time,
There are answers we’re not wise enough to see…


Well, you know I’m a big fan for this band, right? Yep, Five For Fighting is my all time favorite band. Mainly, because their song usually speak about deep things on life that usually cannot meet the eye. Beside, most of their lyrics are really reflect life in general.

“The Riddle”, from the “Two Light” 2006 album, is my “everyday” song. It’s like “the theme” song of my life. Because I can really “connect” with the meaning that is presented. It’s talking about the riddle that I found in my daily life. It also speak about “The Riddle” about my future because we don’t know what future holds, right?

It also “the reminder” for me about what I’ve done so far. I understand that, lots of thing that I have yet to learn, to be more wise towards what happened because there are answer we’re not wise enough to see, and at some point I realized how that I am so “naïve” to face the obstacle that life throw at me.

Then, for sure there is “dialogue” between father & son on the song. The simple & “innocent” question from the kid to his Dad, but really have deep meaning.

“Dad, I’m big but we’re smaller than small,
In the scheme of things, well we’re nothing at all..
And Hey Dad, here’s a riddle for you, find the Answer
There’s a reason for the world, You and I…

I said, “Son for all I’ve told you,
When you get right down to the reason for the world,
Who am I?”

A Fine Frenzy – Lifesize

I listened this song on How I Met Your Mother, Final Episode Season 5. It was splendidly chosen. Such a calming voice & sweet melodies.

The song was a soundtrack for the best ending ever on amazing quotes : “Kids, you can ask the universe for signs for all you want..But ultimately we only see what we wanna see,…When we’re ready to see it..”

Well, the song is about, I think it’s like, we all want to be great in the eyes of someone. It’s about how people feel when they are in love, they have someone in the world who sees them in a different light. But, It’s more than just about love, it’s also about feeling good about yourself, knowing you are someone special. It’s just so fantastical, isn’t it?

“Larger than lifesize, wondersome
Great in the eyes of someone”
“Larger than lifesize, wondersome
Great in the eyes of someone”

The Fray – “Never Say Never”

The Fray - Never Say Never

What’s the key to The Fray’s success? Songs you can relate to. And, The Fray return with the second single “Never Say Never”. I’ve been enamored by the piano-ballads stylings of this song since the very first time I heard. “Never Say Never” is such a masterpiece that present on the soundtrack of the film Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen..

The song is about a direct love between two people who are “pulling apart and coming together again and again”..

And yet, The Fray described it perfectly..

I think “Never Say Never” as “a syrupy ballad” that is nothing short of astonishing. There’s falsetto towards the end and its romantic, wistful and full of understated grace. Backed by strings and a swelling rhythm section, it’s a polished and positive step forward for The Fray..

Yap, enjoy the song & video… 🙂

Yup, sometimes, it’s always appear the question in my mind…
Where is the love that I’ve been wanted..??
A love of a lifetime..Am I still too young for it..??
Or, is it still not the right time..???

This song is a soundtrack for Music & Lyrics movie..
A quite good comedy-romance movie though…

And, for some moment, it fits me too..

Jimmy Eat World – Hear You Me (from One Tree Hill Best Moment)

I still remember about the moment of this song.
The moment from the movie that has taken this song for its soundtrack.
Do you know what movie..?? It’s in One Tree Hill..
The capturing moment with this song was so perfect, deep, and also touching.

For an example,
It’s capturing a sad moment between Andy and Lucas’s mom..
She said,”I love you Andy, I do..”
Then, Andy answered, ” I love you too Karen, but somehow,
it’s just doesn’t seem to be enough for you
..”

And, to remember this moment of this movie,
I remember the best quote that makes realize about myself too…
