Oft Remembered Song – November Rain

November hath come and I was itching to put up this.  Touted by fans as the all time greatest song of G ‘N’R , “November Rain”. As rock music goes, this is an unusually long song with (in my personal opinion) some of the most beautiful and meaningful lyrics of all times. It is said to be a “rock ballad”, goes on for about 9 minutes with a 2 minute solo guitar piece at the end by Slash. The video for this song has been known for its stunning cinematography and has won the MTV Video Music Award.

There is some interesting background info on the song. The band refer it to be a triology of sorts along with their other songs Don’t Cry and Estranged.

Following are the lyrics

November Rain

When I look into your eyes
I can see a love restrained
But darlin’ when I hold you
Don’t you know I feel the same
‘Cause nothin’ lasts forever
And we both know hearts can change
And it’s hard to hold a candle
In the cold November rain
We’ve been through this such a long long time
Just tryin’ to kill the pain
But lovers always come and lovers always go
An no one’s really sure who’s lettin’ go today
Walking away
If we could take the time to lay it on the line
I could rest my head
Just knowin’ that you were mine
All mine
So if you want to love me
then darlin’ don’t refrain
Or I’ll just end up walkin’
In the cold November rain

Do you need some time…on your own
Do you need some time…all alone
Everybody needs some time…on their own
Don’t you know you need some time…all alone
I know it’s hard to keep an open heart
When even friends seem out to harm you
But if you could heal a broken heart
Wouldn’t time be out to charm you

Sometimes I need some time…on my
own Sometimes I need some time…all alone
Everybody needs some time…on their own
Don’t you know you need some time…all alone

And when your fears subside
And shadows still remain, ohhh yeahhh
I know that you can love me
When there’s no one left to blame
So never mind the darkness
We still can find a way
‘Cause nothin’ lasts forever
Even cold November rain

Don’t ya think that you need somebody
Don’t ya think that you need someone
Everybody needs somebody
You’re not the only one
You’re not the only one

Shattered and Whole

You don’t want to believe that we could be one again…

You don’t want to believe that you can feel love again…

I want to move away from this life,

From all the drama created

From all the pain and the disappointment

From the negativity

To a better sun,

To a better shore,

I am not running away from…

I just want my space…my share of  “calm”

To rediscover who I was and what I meant to Be…

I always meant to be good,

giving out rather than taking from…

I meant to be the best person that I can be….

Somewhere..I have lost my way and need to find it again

Where I used to be before the heartache..

………………..

Somehow you are responsible for my reasons and passions now…

But the day will come when I will come into my own..

I will be whoever I want to be.

…………..

October

I have been meaning to put something new but have had a creative burnout :) since quite sometime…So, putting the lyrics to this beautiful song by Bethany Joy Lenz called Let me Fall.. REsembles my burnout in a way :) ..And surprise surprise its October now !!a way

It’s October again
Leaves are coming down
One more year’s come and gone
And nothing’s changed at all
Wasn’t I supposed to be someone
Who can face the things that I’ve been running from…

Let me feel, I don’t care if I breakdown
Let me fall, even if I hit the ground
And if I…
Cry a little
Die a little
At least I know I lived, just a little…

I’ve become much too good at being invincible
I’m an expert at play it safe, and keep it cool
But I swear this isn’t who I’m meant to be
I refuse to let my life roll all over me…

Let me feel, I don’t care if I breakdown
Let me fall, even if I hit the ground
And if I…
Cry a little
Die a little
At least I know I lived, just a little…

I wanna be somebody
I, I wanna be somebody
I wanna be somebody
I, I wanna be somebody who can face the things that I’ve been running from

Let me feel, I don’t care if I breakdown
Let me fall, even if I hit the ground
And if I
Cry a little
Die a little
At least I know I lived…

It’s October again
Leaves are coming down
One more year’s come and gone
And nothing’s changed at all

Fear of the Unknown -by Heathen

I found this beautiful song on the internet……by a group called Heathen about the FeAR Of THe UnkNoWn. Please note that I did not write this.
Read to understand :)

Superstition creeps within
They alter what we hold in our perception
Our subconscious stores the clues
To what is in our mind and what is real

[Pre-Chorus:]
No one knows the reason
No one has the key
To unlock the door of this mystery
Will we ever find out?
Will we ever see?
What’s behind the curtain of perplexity?
 

[Chorus:]
So many things in life we just can’t explain
There is so much that’s still unclear
If we dare to enter the forbidden zone
We’d no longer feel the fear of the unknown


Images of the unseen
Wander through our imagination
It’s all so strange, the wonder of it all
Our hopes and fears, the rise and falls

[Repeat Pre-Chorus & Chorus]
This unseen power mystifies the hour
Transforms the blue skies to red
The howling moon is calling
As the dead of night is falling
These spirits dance upon our souls


Sometimes you can feel it
You might not believe it; but things happen that
we can’t control
Nothing has changed
It’s still the same

Unanswered questions will remain

Best photo display…

Here is a read for all those photo up loaders. I was recently checking out this website called photobucket. It is really quick website for uploading pictures. And the photo display is quick.The UI was just about ok but there were themes and that made it nice.

The reason I noticed this was because I have seen picasa and flickr as the most commonly used photo albums. Personally, I think Picasa is the most used website to upload pictures. However, the view is not large enough and its slow compared to other websites. It basically lacks drama. In picasa, video upload is possible on through picasa software.What a waste! that is..huh..Flickr is comparatively better. The display is beautiful, captioning is available, photo search is possible and photos of friends with picture options exists and they have a cute feature that says hi in different languages on your logged-in home page. I was not able to find the video upload on this site. There is a lot of restriction on that as I remember.

So this made me search up many free photo uploading sites.

One of the first ones i tried was smugmug. It had an amazing UI with the pictures on the landing page changing constantly (ohh so beautiful pictures !!). But its a paid website. It has a small 14 day trial, thats all.

The next on the list was http://www.pbase.com …Mannn I was floored…This is the kind of website that is in your face. The way the pictures can be viewed is beautiful. There is a huge base picture at the top and the rest are below in smaller sizes(can be seen in enlarged mode.) One of the best things was being able to go other albums from any album .After all this when i tried to register, I found out that it was paid and had a 14 day trial period(whats with the 14 day trial !!) .But it is still damn good for viewing galleries.

Kodak gallery and snapfish are also irritating photo albums .They actually require you to create an account to view someone else’s pictures. Who does that anyway?!! As to viewing, the loading time isn’t fast.

Also tried a few other websites but the ui itself disinterested me.
The latest fad in photo viewing and displaying seems to be is captioning or writing a story for each pic. Tumblr seems to do a good job of that. Most photo blogs are found there. Another option would be to create your own website and customize it so that it does seem like another website. More on this at wordpress.com .More on this….Coming hmmm…later .

boulevard..

The road started where you did..

Then strangers joined along the route 

Just when you thought that your destination was the same, they changed course

And your path was lonely..

 

But you moved on..you met others.. But only for a short course, your paths were the same..

And you lost your faith.. 

Then you lost your way..

Somewhere the road turned and you didnt see it coming….

Song of a victim..

Who is the enemy

WHo is the friend

WHy do people play mind games

Games of war

Greed, takes them over…

Leaving the loss and the destruction…

Where have we come, living in fear of the enemy..

Have the perpetuaters ever thought of the lives they destroy

Have they never felt what suffering truly means..,what loss is…

Do they even know their gain is futile in exchange for those lives they took

Or is there no value for human life…
