Meant To Live by Switchfoot

 

“Meant To Live” (lyrics)

Verse 1:

Fumbling his confidence
And wondering why the world has passed him by
Hoping that he’s bent for more than arguments
And failed attempts to fly, fly
Chorus:
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside
Somewhere we live inside
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
Somewhere we live inside

Verse 2:
Dreaming about Providence
And whether mice or men have second tries
Maybe we’ve been livin with our eyes half open
Maybe we’re bent and broken, broken
(Repeat Chorus)

We want more than this world’s got to offer
We want more than this world’s got to offer
We want more than the wars of our fathers
And everything inside screams for second life, yeah

We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live for so much more
Have we lost ourselves?
We were meant to live
We were meant to live

My New Heart by Barbie Almalbis

“My New Heart” (lyrics)

There’s a guy walking by, just walking by
I see you but i’ve gotten used to saying bye
It’s common sense, self-defense
How i made my bed
With a moat around, and castle guards
For the wicked sex

Maybe i like you but i don’t know to trust
I see your beauty you’re a diamond in dust
Maybe i love you but i don’t know enough
Stuck in my castle stuck in my castle

Maybe i like you but i don’t know to trust
I see your beauty you’re a diamond in dust
Maybe i love you but i don’t know enough
Stuck in my castle stuck in my castle

I think i might be many nights beyond repair
But i feel a spark that you ignite
Take me back there

Maybe i like you but i don’t know to trust
I see your beauty you’re a diamond in dust
Maybe i love you but i don’t know enough
Stuck in my castle stuck in my castle

Run For Cover by Barbie Almalbis

“Run For Cover” (lyrics)

When we were so young
did anything our hearts bled
and sold our wonder
and cried about the mess we made

and it’s all over now
but you still see it somehow
and if it’s really gone
oh don’t let dead love live on
no don’t let it live on

and here it comes again
to make you drink
stolen water so sweet
but only til you’ve had it

and it’s all over now
but you still see it somehow
and if it’s really gone
oh don’t let dead love live on
no don’t let it live on

run, run, head for cover

and it’s all over now
but you still see it somehow
and if it’s really gone
oh don’t let dead love live on

 

Halina by Malay

 

“Halina” (lyrics)

Halina’t sumabay sa kalayaan ng gabi
Ako ay tulad mo
Nakatingin, aabutin, nagniningning mga bituin

Ilang daang buwan na ba ang pinalipas mo?
Naghahanda ba o tuluyan ka nang sumusuko
Papayag ba na malimutan na ang alab ng puso
Akala mo may bukas pa
Oras ay tumatakbo, Papalayo sa iyo

Saglit lang ang buhay
Saglit lang

Halina’t sumabay sa kalayaan ng gabi
Ako ay tulad mo
Nakatingin, aabutin, nagniningning mga bituin

Heto na, wala nang ibang panahon
Ang pagkakataon ay laging nasa ngayon
Limutin mo na ang lahat
Nandito na ang sa iyo

Minsan lang ang buhay
Minsan lang

Halina’t sumabay sa kalayaan ng gabi
Ako ay tulad mo
Nakatingin, aabutin, nagniningning mga bituin

Halina’t sumabay sa kalayaan ng gabi
Ang mga luha natin ay nagniningning mga bituin

Miracles by Coldplay

“Miracles” (lyrics)

From up above I heard
The angels sing to me these words.
And sometimes in your eyes
I see the beauty in the world.

Oh, now I’m floating so high.
I blossom and die.
Send your storm and your lightning to strike
Me between the eyes (eyes)

Sometimes the stars decide
To reflect in puddles in the dirt.
When I look in your eyes
I forget all about what hurts.

Oh, now I’m floating so high.
I blossom and die.
Send your storm and your lightning to strike
Me between the eyes
And cry.

Believe in miracles.

Oh hey, I’m floating above the world now!
Oh hey, I’m floating above the world now!

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah!

When you’re younger you spend your days on finding yourself, your identity, true love and the meaning of your existence. So you pile on clothes, accessories, whatever makes you beautiful, confident and accepted. But when you grow up, you get to see the bigger picture of what life is. It is complex, a bit complicated, but also you got to admit that it’s damn beautiful.

Ally Sheedy once said, “When you grow up, your heart dies.” I don’t believe this. It’s just that when we get older, our hearts mature. And when you put your heart on something, it grows with it. Preferences and priorities change. Maybe there are times when you stop loving for a while but eventually your heart will always find a reason to beat again. Passion, Family, Career, whatever it is that matters most to you.

I am thankful for my new life in Christ. He is the reason why my heart beats so fast, why I’m excited to get up every single day and why I always recognise the simplest blessings in my life. With Him, it’s like a big adventure, really. Sometimes it feels like you’re on a great hunt with a lot of twists and turns and ups and downs. And then you reach a certain point where your body gets tired and you’re on the verge of almost giving up because you believe that you still haven’t found the prize. We’ll that’s when this awesome disclosure happens and you realized that being with Christ is the goal and that the most precious treasure that you will find in the entire universe is Him.

Jesus is enough. Life in Christ is simple. If you’re contented with what you have then you are happy. You cannot buy or find happiness in other people’s lives. Happiness lives within. When you have Jesus in your life, you have everything. He is the deepest longing of your heart and only in Him will you find peace. Mitch Albom’s right when he said that, “Scenery without solace is meaningless.” Peace is what we’re looking for, right? Then, Christ is exactly what we need. Through Him and in Him, we will find peace. He gave our hearts the perfect reason to beat again – to love Him and love our neighbors, to strive hard to be like Him. Jesus is humble enough to became bread for us. This is where the great adventure begins… in a heartbeat.

So, are we up to the challenge? To follow Christ is a blessing. This is a fact. And it’s real big one.

Blessed, Broken and Shared. Peace be with you.

“In Your Arms” (lyrics)

Verse 1:

I am a lonely sinner

This life is meaningless

Searching for a star to fall

That’ll save me from the cold

Verse 2:

Wonderin’ if it’s too late

Everything seems to fade

Call out to Him today

And He told me to cry no more

Chorus:

You’ve given me a chance to live

Once again in your arms

I will hold You tight

Never will I let you go

For You are the light

That saves my heart and soul

I will hold You tight

Never will I let You go

Verse 3:

Show me the right direction

Lord, I’m giving you my whole

Searching for a connection

That’ll bring me back to You

 

(Repeat Chorus 2x)
