One or the other

One of my favorite songs because I fell in love with the lyrics when I first heard it. Since I keep listening to new songs on YouTube, other music blog posts or Soundcloud, I don’t usually remember the source. There are times when some song comes along at the very appropriate time and you are hearing almost the same words that run through your mind. The singer’s voice is so soft and full of emotions that it pulls you in.

Singer/Band: Lauv (or Ari Jeff)

Lyrics from MetroLyrics

Like a spotlight the water hits me
Ran it extra cold to shake the words from my mouth
Though I know that no one’s listening
I nervously rehearsed for when you’re around
And I keep waiting like you might change my mind

Who wrote the book on goodbye?
There’s never been a way to make this easy
When there’s nothing quite wrong but it don’t feel right
Either your head or your heart, you set the other on fire

Back and forth now I’m feelin’ guilty
Cause I just can’t stop this pendulum in my head
Though I know that our time is ending
I’d rather lay forever right in this bed

And I keep waiting like, you might change my mind
Give me one more night

Who wrote the book on goodbye?
There’s never been a way to make this easy
When there’s nothing quite wrong but it don’t feel right
Either your head or your heart, you set the other on fire

No one knows, knows, knows. No one knows, knows, knows.

We fell from the peak
And the stars, they broke their code
I’m trying to forget
How I landed on this road
I’m caught in between
What I wish and what I know
When they say that you just know

Who wrote the book on goodbye?
There’s never been a way to make this easy
When there’s nothing quite wrong but it don’t feel right
Either your head or your heart, you set the other on fire

No one knows, knows, knows. No one knows, knows, knows.

You set the other on fire. You set the other on fire.

Posting it for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday.

+1 for Mr Pool, Dead

Instead of making it over the weekend, we ended up watching it on a Friday afternoon (purely by accident, you know)….yay!!!! Yeah, yeah I am talking about Mr Pool, Dead, the one that triggered my rant post a day ago?

It was Awesome! It could have been better with those unmuted lines (can’t even lipread Mr Pool because of his mask….damn!) but looks like they got away with f*** word and honestly, they can’t do much with some of the visuals which are very detail, graphically 😉 Obviously, some of the very intimate scenes are totally cut. You see the couple getting all close and then suddenly they are standing together and trying their hand at a ball game. OK, now that that is out of the way, I should say the film is a hit right from the moment the magazine where Ryan Reynolds is shown as the sexiest man alive comes up 😛 I ain’t gonna spoil it for anyone who is gonna watch the movie by telling you if Hugh Jackman does a surprise cameo or not. You have to watch it for yourself 😉 There is no dearth of laughter, puns, humor, cheeky lines or even gory action sequences. Will definitely have to watch the uncensored version later to know what was cut from this movie. The hip hop songs made me wanna groove to the music in my chair and thankfully the audience was mostly comprised of college kids and hence me shouting and clapping and whooping wasn’t exclusive.

Long story short, I just loved the movie 🙂 Definitely a hit. I did have my reservations about it even before the first trailer came out. Wasn’t sure about seeing Ryan Reynolds in such an action packed movie, but man, he was amazing. And do wait until all the credits are done, yeah? We were only a select few in the theater to watch the final few scenes after the credits.
