#songshare – I Knew You Were Waiting

There was a period of time in my life, I couldn’t get out of bed in the morning. Besides reading the Psalm from the Bible, this song would get me out of bed.

 

I Knew You Were Waiting – Aretha Franklin, George Michael

Playlist

“You can tell a lot about a person by what’s on their playlist.”
– Mark Ruffalo

 

I accumulated songs spanning across decades to a Cassa’s Faves Spotify playlist. They are songs with lyrics touched my heart. Other than that, I had not done any analysis on the playlist until I came across the Mark Ruffalo quote “You can tell a lot about a person by what’s on their playlist”.

We are who we are both in the sun and in the shadow.

My professional life requires me to be a people person who is supportive, accountable to my work, respecting others and acting with integrity. So I seem to be a real positive person who is full of hope. I will say this is me in the sun.

My playlist is me in the shadow. I am filled with regrets, sadness, missed chances, broken promises and disappointments. When I listen to my playlist, every bit of me mesmerised in the melodies, transfixed in the lyrics, living out my shadow in the open air. They take me to places where I allow the pain to surface, rise and fall, ebb and flow into the inner chamber of my heart so very ever scarred.

I allow my heart to mist my dark eyes, to rain on my soul, to darken my days. The long nights is my companion, the daybreak is my watching angel and the first ray of the sun is my knight.

I am me in the sun and in the shadow in one breath.

Love Is A Losing Game – Amy Winehouse

Goodbye My Lover – James Blunt

#songshare – Last Romance

Last Romance – Sally Yeh

去流逝似金年月
如何令往昔留住
金光裡難在雨中重遇
前塵事倍添凌亂
晴陽升上
斜陽歸去
無論愛是否有緣
茫然在匆匆中打轉
如夢逝去瞬息萬變
心一片仍在嘆息懷念
仍然望往昔重現
無言的你無言的我
流逝去是苦與甜
模糊是當天一張臉
變得難辦
只有一片愁凝在臉
斜陽歸去
無論愛是否有緣
茫然在匆匆中打轉
變得難辦
只有一片愁凝在臉

#songshare – Emma’s Song

Emma’s Song – Sinead O’Connor

 

The first time I saw you
I loved you
I loved you
Your face blue
Your eyes too
Your mouth too
Your mouth too
When I heart you
I wanted to
Give birth to you
Give birth to you
I made love to you
I made love to you
The great goddess
Had us blessed
The last time I saw you
I fought with you
I fought with you
I didn’t mean to
I didn’t mean to
Oh say you’ll see me
Let me say sorry
The next time I’ll see you
I’ll love you
I’ll be sweet to you
I’ll take you to
My healing room
Oh we both know
How loneliness goes
Everytime I see you
I want you
I want you
The more I do
You hate me to
But the great goddess
Had us blessed
