Coldplay – Fix You (Live Tokyo 2009) (High Quality video) (HQ) Lyrics

When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse

And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

And high up above or down below
When you’re too in love to let it go
But if you never try you’ll never know
Just what you’re worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

Tears stream down on your face
When you lose something you cannot replace
Tears stream down on your face
And I…

Tears stream down on your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down on your face
And I…

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

I’ve always felt the need to be the hero in all of my relationships, but I’m starting to realize now that I’m not meant to play that role for anyone. As much as I want to be the savior for you, all I can do for you is simply be. You may not even be expecting me to fix you, but I am consumed by my own ego and pressure myself to help you, to fix you, to be your savior. I guess I’m looking to be of worth to you, I want to be that guy you can always come to when you’re in need and be that guy that always knows just what to say, or knows just what to do in every situation. Slowly but surely I am realizing that I can’t do it. Looking back at our relationship, I’m sure you could tell that I was trying so hard to be there for you, and to be that guy… but I’ve always come short. You tell me it’s okay, that you don’t expect me to be superman… but I can’t help but feel like I’m being nothing more than a passive companion to you. I want to be more than that. I want to be able to fulfill your needs, to help mend your heart and to help you grow.

When did we get this way? We used to just click… now there’s just too much thinking involved! Eh.. whatever… maybe I shouldn’t be so obsessed with trying to fix you… maybe I should let you fix me… but do you care enough to even try?

Rear-view Mirror

For those who know me well enough, you know that I’ve always had a thing with girls with eyeliner. I’m not just talking about girls who put on some eyeliner, I’m talking about girls that put on a shit ton everyday before showing their face out in public. Well… not like a raccoon but a good amount… anyways.

I’ve come to realize that I’ve lived most of my life through the “rear-view mirror.” Meaning, I never see the things I have right in front of me, but rather watch as I pass by it through the rear-view mirror (of a car). This particular post will be about girls passing me by. I’ve always dated girls who knew what they were doing in the eyeliner department and that’s normal… considering I had this obsession with girls with eyeliner… but as it turns out, it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be. I look back at the lady friends I’ve dated over the past year and the ones I never pursued because of the eyeliner thing and I’m starting to realize I made some terrible choices. This might be completely idiotic for me to say, but I think I’m starting to believe that the more eyeliner a girl puts, the bitchier she is. I can kind of see now that the reason girls put on so much eyeliner is to hide behind it. And what are they hiding you ask? Themselves. Their true, narcissistic, conniving, manipulative selves.

Without getting really too into it, I’ll just say that I’ve grown up quite a bit over the last 12 months. I’m actually starting to see things in a different light; especially girls. As much as the makeup and girls’ personalities might not relate, I have seen some things to make me believe that they are hiding behind all that make up. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I still find them to be pretty, but I’ve also started noticing true beauty. The ones that don’t need to hide behind their designer jeans, their silk shirt made by an Italian artisan, or the vintage designer bag that’s been handed down from generation to generation.

To the one that got away; I’m sorry I was such an idiot. I honestly didn’t take the time to get to know you better because I was too fixated on the materialistic things. I see now that the reason you didn’t wear all that stupid makeup is because you didn’t need it. You were (still are) beautiful inside and out. I remember the times we went out, how I thought “wow this girl would be AMAZING with some eyeliner!” How immature of me to even think that… because honestly, that’s the kind of shit that made me such a bad guy for you. I hope our paths cross again, so I can say this is the way I used to be. I hope you give me the opportunity again to show you a more respectable, mature Alex and we can pick up where we left off.

—-edit

If not… there’s plenty of fish in the sea lol. I’ll just go find another you.

Drake – Marvin’s Room (MV)

I’ve been really obsessed with this song lately and just realized it’s a pretty sad song =\

The woman that I would try
Is happy with a good guy

But I’ve been drinking so much
That I’ma call her anyway

Honestly, when I first heard the song all I heard was the chorus;

“Fuck that nigga that you love so bad
I know you still think about the times we had”
I say “fuck that nigga that you think you found
And since you picked up I know he’s not around”

and this part kind of makes it sound like the girl made a mistake and moved on to a guy that’s worse (as the lyrics state). But if you listen to the whole song, there are parts that show that the guy is drunk dialing the girl and its just sad because it’s the guy that’s begging to get back with her.

“Well I’m sorry” – [Drake]
“Are you drunk right now?” – [Woman]

[Drake on phone]
“You’re not going to come?”
“Guess I’m bout to just kick it here then…”

I need you right now, are you down to listen to me?

So sad 😦 but still such a good song!
