For king and country – joy

For King and country – Joy

 

Recently I just discover this group. I must say that I am falling in love with all their production. The fist title I discover was joy. I was sad and just listening to this gave me simply joy.

For King and Country is a Christian pop duo composed of Australian brothers Joel Luke Smallbone. In 2015 they win the Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song.

They declare :

The power of music can impact our mood, emotions, our day. But when you merge the strength of music with the heart, hope and passion of the Gospel… it has the ultimate power not only to change someone’s day, but to impact them for eternity. This is why we write music and sing songs – we hope that people will be moved, encouraged and stirred to live a life for Someone greater than themselve

 

verse 1: Luke Smallbone]
Lately, I’ve been reading, watching the nightly news
Can’t seem to find the rhythm, just wanna sing the blues
Feels like a song that never… stops
Feels like it’s never gonna

[Pre-Chorus: Joel Smallbone]
Gotta get that fire, fire, back in my bones
Before my heart, heart, turns into stone
So somebody please pass the megaphone
I’ll shout it on the count of three
One, two, three

[Chorus 1: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
Oh, hear my prayer tonight, I’m singing to the sky
Give me strength to raise my voice, let me testify
Oh, hear my prayer tonight, ’cause this is do or die
The time has come to make a choice
And I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you
Yeah, I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you

[Verse 2: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
Yeah-eh, back when I was young, my eyes were full of life
But now that I am older, I live at the speed of light
Feels like the cycle never… stops
Feels like it’s never gonna

[Pre-Chorus: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
Gotta get that fire, fire, back in my bones
Before my heart, heart, turns into stone
So somebody please pass the megaphone
I’ll shout it on the count of three
One, two, three

[Chorus 2: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
Oh, hear my prayer tonight, I’m singing to the sky
Give me strength to raise my voice, let me testify
Oh, hear my prayer tonight, ’cause this is do or die
The time has come to make a choice
And I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you
Yeah, I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of night
Oh, with You by my side, I’m stepping into the light
I choose joy
Let it move you, let it move, let it move you

[Bridge: Luke Smallbone]
I need that joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart, down in my heart to stay
I need that joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart, down in my heart to stay

[Turn]

[Chorus 3: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
And I choose joy
Let it move you, go let it move, go let it move you
Oh, I choose joy
Let it move you, oh let it move, let it move you
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of night
Oh, with You by my side, I’m stepping into the light
I choose joy
Go let it move you, go let it move, go let it move you

[Outro: Joel & Luke Smallbone]
I need that joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart, down in my heart to stay
I need that joy, joy, joy, joy
Down in my heart, down in my heart to stay

 

An other joyfull song : Family Force 5 This is my year

Owl City – Lucid Dream

Soon a new Album of Owl city is going to run : cinematic. I like this song. I can hear it in loop 10 time.

We know that Adam Young could not sleep well. What is why he start with I am a light sleeper. But he is a heavy dreamer. Are you a dreamer ?

Do you believe in endless miracles?
Do you believe in the impossible?
Do you believe sleep is a time machine?
Do you believe in curiosity?
Do you believe in what you cannot see?
Do you believe life is a Lucid Dream?

 

I am a light sleeper
But I am a heavy dreamer
My imagination gives me wings
And I can go anywhere

And when I wander away, to some other place
I’m suddenly there, way up in the air
Where passenger trains catch fire and fill the sky with flames
And that black rabbit of death
Wakes up in a breath, of beautiful dreams
My heartache it seems, so terribly vain
Where fire and diamonds fall like rain

Do you believe in endless miracles?
Do you believe in the impossible?
Do you believe sleep is a time machine?
Do you believe in curiosity?
Do you believe in what you cannot see?
Do you believe life is a Lucid Dream?

Well that’s how you study the stars
That’s how you study the stars
And that’s how you know ’em by heart
Life is a Lucid Dream

Such is the path of a dreamer
I find my way by moonlight
My imagination gives me wings
And I can go anywhere

And when I wander away, to some other place
I’m suddenly there, way up in the air
Where passenger trains catch fire and fill the sky with flames
And that black rabbit of death
Wakes up in a breath, of beautiful dreams
My heartache it seems, so terribly vain
Where fire and diamonds fall like rain

Do you believe in endless miracles?
Do you believe in the impossible?
Do you believe sleep is a time machine?
Do you believe in curiosity?
Do you believe in what you cannot see?
Do you believe life is a Lucid Dream?

Well that’s how you study the stars
That’s how you study the stars
And that’s how you know ’em by heart
Life is a Lucid Dream
Well that’s how you study the stars
That’s how you study the stars
And that’s how you know ’em by heart
Life is a Lucid Dream

I am a light sleeper
But I am a heavy dreamer

Owl City Fireflies

In 2009 Adam Young launch the project Owl City.  Adam Young described the song as “a little song about bugs and not being able to fall asleep at night. The song is built around a “bleepy” synthline and includes lyrics about insomnia, fireflies and summer.

I like this kind of music and melody because it remind me the melody and the style of music I like in my childhood. Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis and Kraft Werk was pioneer of electronic music. It is like today electronic music still exists. I prefer with kind melody and colorfull music. For example I discovered recently Family Force 5 with This is my Year  This kind of music could be run in the end of 70s and today it is fashionable again.

 

 

[Verse 1]
You would not believe your eyes
If ten million fireflies
Lit up the world as I fell asleep
‘Cause they’d fill the open air
And leave teardrops everywhere
You’d think me rude but I would just stand and stare

[Hook]
I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems

[Verse 2]
‘Cause I’d get a thousand hugs
From ten thousand lightning bugs
As they tried to teach me how to dance
A foxtrot above my head
A sock hop beneath my bed
The disco ball is just hanging by a thread

[Hook]
I’d like to make myself believe
That planet Earth turns slowly
It’s hard to say that I’d rather stay awake when I’m asleep
‘Cause everything is never as it seems (when I fall asleep)

 

We Don’t Talk Anymore

We Don’t Talk Anymore
We don’t talk anymore, we don’t talk anymore
We don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
We don’t love anymore
What was all of it for?
Oh, we don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
I just heard you found the one you’ve been looking
You’ve been looking for
I wish I would have known that wasn’t me
‘Cause even after all this time I still wonder
Why I can’t move on
Just the way you did so easily
Don’t wanna know
What kind of dress you’re wearing tonight
If he’s holding onto you so tight
The way I did before
I overdosed
Should’ve known your love was a game
Now I can’t get you out of my brain
Oh, it’s such a shame
That we don’t talk anymore, we don’t talk anymore
We don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
We don’t love anymore
What was all of it for?
Oh, we don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
I just hope you’re lying next to somebody
Who knows how to love you like me
There must be a good reason that you’re gone
Every now and then I think you
Might want me to come show up at your door
But I’m just too afraid that I’ll be wrong
Don’t wanna know
If you’re looking into her eyes
If she’s holding onto you so tight the way I did before
I overdosed
Should’ve known your love was a game
Now I can’t get you out of my brain
Oh, it’s such a shame
That we don’t talk anymore (We don’t, we don’t)
We don’t talk anymore (We don’t, we don’t)
We don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
We don’t love anymore (We don’t, we don’t)
What was all of it for? (We don’t, we don’t)
Oh, we don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
Like we used to do
Don’t wanna know
What kind of dress you’re wearing tonight
If he’s giving it to you just right
The way I did before
I overdosed
Should’ve known your love was a game
Now I can’t get you out of my brain
Oh, it’s such a shame
That we don’t talk anymore (We don’t, we don’t)
We don’t talk anymore (We don’t, we don’t)
We don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
We don’t love anymore (We don’t, we don’t)
What was all of it for? (We don’t, we don’t)
Oh, we don’t talk anymore, like we used to do
We don’t talk anymore, oh, oh
(What kind of dress you’re wearing tonight)
(If he’s holding onto you so tight)
The way I did before
We don’t talk anymore, oh, woah
(Should’ve known your love was a game)
(Now I can’t get you out of my brain)
Ooh, it’s such a shame
That we don’t talk anymore

I am not going to waste my time.

Time it’s time to get things started : As I am a good procrastinater, this word speaks to me. Don’t push at tomorrow what you can make now.

God Help Me – PLUMB

God Help Me

I just discover this new singers PLUMB. Actually she is much more known in the secular world than in the christian music world. I like the sound and the melody. The first thing I should like in a song is the music what I hear. I even surprise me to wake up during a night with a music in my head. What is this music ? What is this melody ? When did I hear such music ? After a while I realise that is was this song.

I also like the words of this song. Very deap and touching. I could sing this song myself. What will you ask for me. It is not always as easy to know what we should do and to listen to the voice of God.

There is a wrestling in my heart and my mind
A disturbance and a tension I cannot seem to drive
And if I’m honest, there’s quite a bit of fear
To sit here in this silence and really hear You

What will You ask of me?
Will I listen to Your voice when You speak?

Help me to move, help me to see
Help me to do whatever You would ask of me
Help me to go, God help me to stay
I’m feeling so alone here
And I know that You’re faithful
But I can barely breathe
God help me

Sometimes things, they are black and white
Sometimes they are not and that leaves us torn inside
And in the middle, we are left to wonder
Who we are, what You want and where we’re going

Oh such a mystery
I don’t always understand
But I believe!

I don’t know the future, it’s one day at a time
But I know I’ll be okay with Your hand holding mine
So take all my resistance
Oh God I need Your grace
One step and then the other
Show me the way
Show me the way!

Help me to move, help me to see
Help me to do whatever You would ask of me
Help me to go, God help me to stay
I’m feeling so alone here
And I know that You’re faithful
But I can barely breathe
But I can barely breathe
But I can barely breathe
God help me

Clean Bandit – Symphony feat. Zara Larsson

 

I’ve been hearing symphonies
Before all I heard was silence
A rhapsody for you and me
And every melody is timeless
Life was stringing me along
Then you came and you cut me loose
Was solo singing on my own
Now I can’t find the key without you

And now your song is on repeat
And I’m dancin’ on to your heartbeat
And when you’re gone, I feel incomplete
So if you want the truth

I just wanna be part of your symphony
Will you hold me tight and not let go?
Symphony
Like a love song on the radio
Will you hold me tight and not let go?

I’m sorry if it’s all too much
Every day you’re here, I’m healing
And I was runnin’ out of luck
I never thought I’d find this feeling
‘Cause I’ve been hearing symphonies
Before all I heard was silence
A rhapsody for you and me
(A rhapsody for you and me)
And every melody is timeless

And now your song is on repeat
And I’m dancin’ on to your heartbeat
And when you’re gone, I feel incomplete
So if you want the truth

I just wanna be part of your symphony
Will you hold me tight and not let go?
Symphony
Like a love song on the radio
Will you hold me tight and not let go?

And now your song is on repeat
And I’m dancin’ on to your heartbeat
And when you’re gone, I feel incomplete
So if you want the truth

I just wanna be part of your symphony
Will you hold me tight and not let go?
Symphony
Like a love song on the radio
Symphony
Will you hold me tight and not let go?
Symphony
Like a love song on the radio
Will you hold me tight and not let go?
