Striving to find a balance in life between necessity and desire. I take on many roles as a person ranging from being a daughter, sister, friend, girlfriend, songwriter, singer, rapper, and entertainer. Originally this Tumblr was for music but so much has happened and now I'm just going to post whatever I feel like. Topics will include:
- Random Rants
- Interior design
- And whatever else I find interesting
I just need a space to express myself and share things I find amusing. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day. :)
I read the translation of Utada Hikaru’s Sakura Nagashi and it made me a bit emotional. It was moving.
Everybody finds love in the end.
I want to believe in that so much. May we all find love and peace, no matter how hard our struggles. Just stick it through ‘till the end.
Have any of you heard or seen Catfish the movie or show? If not, in sum, it’s about online relationships in which the couple has not met but one contacts a guy named Nev to help them investigate the person and get them to meet in person. Sometimes it turns out to be the actual person or someone who made a fake online identity. Anywho, the show made me think of what the concept of love is.
The people on this show claim to be in love even though they never met this person but the actions and word behind this online identity seem to be the driving force behind their happy feelings. When the person turns out to be not who they say they were, then were those feelings ever real? What society tends to conceptualize as love is some magic spark or connection between two people meeting. But is that spark really triggered by the connection of two people or is love something people trick themselves into thinking because they want to believe in it so much?
I don’t want to call these people “stupid” because I think most of us would enjoy being in an emotionally fulfilling relationship and if it comes from an online person and brings happiness, why not go with it? Especially if you’re having a tough time dating in real life. The main thing I’m trying to get at is the concept of “love.”
Does a couple trick themselves thinking that they are really into each other? And the “spark” is really from the desire to want things to work out?
Love to me is like magic. So many people in the world but you connect with just a few people in the world in your life. Or do we just romanticize things because we’re lonely?
Then again even if we are… as long as we’re happy and it isn’t hurting anyone, it should be okay, right? I guess it begins to become unhealthy if it leads to nothing.
What are your thoughts on love? Is it merely a thought or is it like magic/spark/special-connection?
New song written - “Lifted”
Instrumental: David Keys - Lift (Demo - Rough Mix)
Haven’t written a song in hella long. I’ve been spending a lot of time with my new found love who inspired this song. It’s a helluva rough ass recording but eh —- all my shiz is hella rough. I’m often told I need a new mic. Be nice - I barely wrote this and I recorded it once. I barely have time to do these kind of things nowadays. -_-
Anywho, here are the lyrics and I hope you can appreciate it. The beat was friggin amazing and I felt that I had to write something to it. Thanks for listening/sharing/being-cool. :)
There was a once upon a time
we loved and called it bliss
with other people, but misfortune
was a hit and miss
A love that only brought us pain
Betrayed by those we love
Brought us to the concept alone
there is no trust
Faulty hopes and blurred perceptions
Scars that tear the heart
Inside the courage to look forward
past the brightest stars
Yet even then we’re blinded
by the hearts we call our own
Susceptible to the deceit
that leaves us bare and cold
It’s hard to understand why people
like tear you up
into pieces, like there’s nothing left
you lose it all
You deal the cards, they place the bets
To them it’s all a game
All you wanted was for someone
not to be so vain
The search brings but a coldness
leaving you so empty handed
Patience a valuable virtue
Love where you least expect it
Creeps about the depths you never
ever saw it coming, then
your heart just stops, you find the one
yes you can love again
And you’re lifted up
For years I’ve wanted to be found
And here I see you’ve found me
You gone and swept me off my feet
I feel no ground beneath me
Levitating to your essence
Caressed by all your grace
No limitations to our bond
With you I feel in place
You taught me I can smile again
even through all my struggles
I can walk away from all these
things that bring me trouble
I can be myself without the fear
of being judged
You love me just the way I am
And I am lifted up
Lyrics (C) Solitune Soul. :D
Thanks to homeboy [Port87] for sharing his playlist with the world:
This song is how I feel about my ex… We were together for eight years. I heard that the number eight was considered good luck. For us, it was the number that brought us together and also broke us. I’ll write a song about it one time. Hah. In the meanwhile, I shall lose myself in this song, hella beautiful, and hella feelin’ it.
Nak | Take CareLove is patient and kind…it’s never angry nor boasts
It always trusts, perseveres, always handling hope
Hate, jealousy and pride, it will never provoke…
I want to learn what it means, God…show me the ropes
