CN Blue – One of a Kind

[Jong Hyun]

On the floor, you’re moving in a way I can’t ignore

I’m in heat, I caught a glimpse and now I’m at your feet

[Yong Hwa]

I can’t escape it, there’s nowhere to hide

This feeling I got I can’t deny

I don’t know your name but it’s all the same

Coz I can feel your heart and now I’m sure

[Jong Hyun]

Don’t you know, there’s nothing I can do,

I gotta get to know you

I have to see this through I want it all

I gotta let you know, this feeling is so true

Coz I know that you’re One of a kind

And I can’t get you out of my mind

[Jong Hyun]

All alone, thought I was doing better on my own

Then you came, and now my life will never be

the same no~no~

[Yong Hwa]

I can’t escape it, there’s nowhere to hide

This feeling I got I can’t deny

I don’t know your name but it’s all the same

Coz I can feel your heart and now I’m sure

[Jong Hyun]

Don’t you know, there’s nothing I can do,

I gotta get to know you

I have to see this through I want it all

I gotta let you know, this feeling is so true

Coz I know that you’re One of a kind

And I can’t get you out of my mind

[Jong Hyun]

What would you say if I was to walk up to you

[Yong Hwa]

Would you feel the same if I told you this feeling is true

I wonder what you would do

[Jong Hyun]

Don’t you know, there’s nothing I can do,

I gotta get to know you

[Yong Hwa]

Don’t you know, there’s nothing I can do,

I gotta get to know you

I have to see this through I want it all

I gotta let you know, this feeling is so true

Coz I know that you’re One of a kind

And I can’t get you out of my mind

// lately, I have been singing this at the top of my voice and it’s been playing nonstop on both my mp3 palyer and itunes. the lyrics are so simple, yet it’s all true. plus, the boys don’t sound so bad singing in english. although the jung yong hwa‘s part in singing ‘heart’ sounds a lot like ‘hurt’. Someone should’ve corrected him when he sang that.

// I don’t know if this band really understands and speaks fluent conversational english, but I can say that they were able to put some emotion to the song. I mean, it would be really difficult to put emotion in a song that you don’t really understand right?

// I hope that they get to sing more songs like these. and in english too! 🙂

Saying NO.

Saying no.

one of the things that I do not like doing is to say NO. especially when it comes to people’s emotions.

I just can’t simply hurt a person, especially when a bond is already established. That’s why there are just times when I just say ‘okay’ to every request, as long as I can do it.

This afternoon, I had the unlucky opportunity to say ‘no’ to a friend. He was anticipating something that I cannot give. My friend was right, he misinterpreted everything I did (I tend to be favorable to friends than anyone else). I just thought that he was smarter than that. He told me years ago that he wasn’t expecting anything, and I held on to that; knowing how he felt about me, plus the promise of not expecting anything, I felt that it was ok to be friends with him. But apparently, he seems to have forgotten what he promised to me before (oh boy). He started doing things that are beyond normal, and for some reason, uncomfortable for me. I don’t need to be pampered. I do not have to decide on everything that you do. I may be a princess, but I’m also a warrior. I’m not some hopeless damsel in distress that needs constant affection. I’m not an attention-seeker. It really sucks to learn that you are misunderstood when the person who misunderstood you is supposed to be an expert on personality. 😐

Anyway, before my rant goes on, at the time when I had to say no, I wished that I had some crash course on saying no. I wish that my parents taught me how to say it with a straight face. I found this nifty website on how to say no, so I’ll just be copying-and-paste it here. It’s pretty general and it does not involve emotions, but I love the tips below.

taken from: Say No To Others Without Offending Them

Sometimes, situations arise where you have to politely decline a person’s offer. This can be difficult, especially when you care about the other person. Here’s how to deal with the situation politely and easily.

  1. Just say “I’m sorry. I’m swamped with homework due tomorrow.” They’ll hopefully understand. Keep in mind; lying is not the best way out unless it is a very dangerous situation.
  2. Firmly say “no” while politely smiling at the other person.
  3. Say no but try to suggest some other place you would rather go / some other thing you would rather do.
  4. Just simply say ” No thank you.”
  5. Reschedule for some other day.
  6. Tell them for “personal reasons”
  7. Say no then walk away or cross your arms. Though use this as a last resort i.e. if the one asking keeps insisting and doesn’t take the hint that you are not interested.
  8. Ask the person why they want you to come along. Sometimes knowing the reason behind why they are asking/insisting may make you change your mind.
Tips:
  • Know that person’s personality so that you can pick your excuse properly.
  • When on your own think up excuses that you could use if and when such situations arise. Tried and tested excuses like – “I’m sorry but I promised Mom I’d do some household chores today” or ” I have to baby-sit my little brother / sister today so I wont be able to make it” – have been known to work well.
Warnings:
  • Watch your body language! If you’re making an excuse, your body language may be revealing.
  • It’s best not to blatantly lie because being found out can be quite embarrassing for you and offending to the other person.
  • Extremely persistent people can make you lose your cool. So stay calm and keep hinting that you are not interested.
Things You’ll Need:
  • Courage
  • A polite smile
  • A few fool-proof excuses
  • A good memory to remember your lies/excuses
so there you have it. like I said, it’s pretty general but it can be a start. aren’t the “things you need” and “warnings” also helpful? hahaha.
Just sharing: I don’t think my method of saying went well. But oh well, sometimes, you just have to be fierce in order to get the message to the other person. However, I hope that this would never happen again. 😐

Panic! at the Disco – The Calendar

after listening to this song for about 10 or so times, it’s only now that I got to appreciate the song. Of course, it’s also thanks to Kimi Wa Pet for letting me understand a lot of things today. :)) although i’m not really sure what it means, the lyrics sort of tell me that it’s all about loyalty and patience. 🙂

// whoa, i just gave too much credit on a manga i’m currently reading, and i’m not even halfway through! 🙂

// anyway, enjoy! 🙂

They said if you don’t let it out
You’re gunna let it eat you away
I’d rather be a cannibal baby
Animals like me don’t talk anyway
Feel like an ambulance
Chaser of faith
Pray I could replace
her forget the way her tears taste
Oh the way her tears taste

Put another ex on the calendar
Summer’s on its deathbed
There is simply nothing worse
Than knowing how it ends
And I meant everything I said that night
I will come back to life
But only for you, only for you

Well we may call it a second chance
But when I came back it was more of a relapse
Anticipation’s on the other line
And obsession called while you were out
Yeah it called while you were out

Put another ex on the calendar
Summer’s on its deathbed
There is simply nothing worse
Than knowing how it ends
And I meant everything I said that night
I will come back to life
But only for you, only for you

Asleep in the hive
I guess all the buzzing got to me
Well, I’m still alive
At night your body is a symphony
And I’m conducting you

They said if you don’t let it out
You’re gunna let it eat you away

Put another ex on the calendar
Summer’s on its deathbed
There is simply nothing worse
Than knowing how it ends
And I meant everything I said that night
I will come back to life
But only for you, only for you
Only for you, only for you

love songs and love stories. || Panic at the Disco – Always

honestly, it has been sometime before i shed a tear about love. i watch and read a lot of love stories in the past few months of being single, but it’s only now that i felt lonely (for a short while).

The combination of Kimi wa Pet chapter 26 and Panic at the Disco‘s Always and The Calendar is bound to recall all my insecurities. What I love about this manga is that the female lead character is my ideal self. Although she lacks social skills and some honesty in herself, I am no different from her. She finds satisfaction in a guy she adopted as a ‘pet’, and this guy practically takes care of her emotionally and psychologically (not that she’s psychologically disturbed) while she takes care of him with regards to physiological needs. I can’t help but think that I mind end up being like her. I MIGHT END UP LOVING SOMEONE UNEXPECTED.

and it scares me. I don’t do random and spontaneous. I do schedules and planning and calculation. I don’t deal with unexpected because i do my best to see every fault that might happen. 

When the world gets too heavy,
Put it on my back
I’ll be your levy
You are taking me apart
Like bad glue on a get well card

It was always you falling for me
Now there’s always time calling for me
I’m the light blinking at the end of the road
Blink back to let me know

I’m a fly that’s trapped in a web
But I’m thinking that, my spiders dead
Lonely, lonely little life
I could kid myself in thinking that I’m fine

It was always you falling for me
Now there’s always time calling for me
I’m the light blinking at the end of the road

Blink back to let me know

That I’m skin and bone
Just a king and rusty throne
Oh the castle’s under siege,
But the sign outside says “leave me alone”

It was always you falling for me
Now there’s always time calling for me
I’m the light blinking at the end of the road
Blink back to let me know

It was always you
Blink back to let me know
It was always you
