SONG OF THE WEEK The Script No Good In Goodbye Audio and Lyrics

No Sound Without Silence was released at the start of this week by The Script, of course I got the CD the moment it came out. I love the Irish influences in the music (Tin whistle, fiddle etc.) and the religious imagery. Army of Angels definitely reminds me of The Script’s last album, #3.

Lyrics:

All the things that we’ve lost
Breaking off comes at a cost
And know I miss this mistake
Every word I try to choose
Either way I’m gonna lose
Can’t take the ache from heartbreak
Oh but as you walk away
You don’t hear me say

Where’s the good in goodbye?
Where’s the “nice” in nice try?
Where’s the “us” in trust gone?
Where’s the soul in “soldier on”?
I’m alone and lonely
Cause I don’t own the only
I can take this mistake
But I can’t take the ache from heartbreak
Can’t take the ache from heartbreak

No matter how it falls apart
There’s an “art” in breaking hearts
But there’s no fair in farewell
When I see you in the street
I pray to God
You don’t see the silent hail and I wish you well

Oh but as you walk away
You don’t hear me say

Where’s the “good” in goodbye?
Where’s the “nice” in nice try?
Where’s the “us” in trust gone?
Where’s the soul in “soldier on”?
I’m alone and lonely
Cause I don’t own the only
I can take this mistake
But I can’t take the ache from heartbreak
I can’t take the ache from heartbreak
I can’t take the ache from heartbreak
I can’t take the ache from heartbreak

If I could turn back time then I would re-write those lines
If I could turn back time then I would re-write those lines
If I could turn back time then I would re-write those lines
If I could turn back time then I would re-write those lines

Where’s the “good” in goodbye?
Where’s the “nice” in nice try?
Where’s the “us” in trust gone?
Where’s the soul in “soldier on”?
I’m alone and lonely
Cause I don’t own the only
I can take this mistake
But I can’t take the ache from heartbreak
I can’t take the ache from heartbreak

Scotland Votes No

I may live in Northern Ireland, but I’ve been keeping a close eye on the Scottish referendum. This morning when I padded down the stairs and saw ‘NO’ all over the TV screen, I was slightly disappointed. The Yes campaign was very strong, it tugged at the heart strings of Scottish people and painted a picture of a brighter future if Scotland became independent. Whereas the No campaign didn’t appeal to me and it seemed that they only cared what would happen to England if Scotland left the UK. In favour of the No campaign, it did have a lot more facts and figures than the Yes campaign.

That’s how democracy works – the Scottish people chose to stay in the UK and I respect that. I think it’s brilliant that there has been no riots in Scotland, people are being civil and respectful – even if they are disappointed by the result.

Good on ye Scotland!

Words That Don’t Go Together

“Why don’t you just quit?” Nuala asked, in response to me moaning about Senior Choir one lunchtime. “Yeah, just quit they can’t force you to go,” someone else chimed in. “No, no, no,” I explained, “‘senior choir’ and ‘quit’ are words that don’t go together.” As I have explained to them more than once, choir is a contract signed in blood.

I went to junior choir for two weeks in Year 8 before quitting, mainly because I was singing soprano when I’m definitely an alto. In Year 9 I was forced to go back by my music teacher, and a helpful Year 10 pointed out that I was probably alto. I’ve been singing alto in choir ever since. Last week I joined Senior Choir because I’m now Year 11. It was a massive change, going from singing Disney songs to Latin songs. We’re singing Ave Verum at the school’s opening mass next week. Yep, we’ve only had two rehearsals to learn this. Mrs A calls it ‘ambitious’ – I call it shite.

Choir is a love-hate relationship for me. I love getting out of class for it and people thinking that I’m a good singer, but I hate sitting through rehearsals. Regardless of whether or not I like it, choir is a duty that I must do until I leave the school.

SONG OF THE WEEK Paloma Faith New York Video & Lyrics

I don’t why I have never posted Paloma Faith’s music! New York is one of my favourite songs from this beautiful young lady.

Lyrics:

The days were long and the nights so cold
The pages turn and the tale unfolds
He left me for another lady
She stood so tall and she never slept
The was not one moment he could regret
He left me for another lady

He took my hand one day and told me
He was leaving
Me disbelieving
And I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I
Had to let him go

Her name was New York, New York
And she took his heart away oh my
Her name was New York, New York
She had poisoned his sweet mind
Mmmm

The wolves they howled for my lost soul
I fell down a deep black hole
He left me for another lady
She poured the drinks and she poured the power
Diamond girl who could talk for hours
He left me for another lady

Now I am on my own
He told me he was leaving
And I was pleading
And I, I, I, I, I, I, I, I
Had to let him go

Her name was New York, New York
And she took his heart away oh my
Her name was New York, New York
She had poisoned his sweet mind

The greatest times
I don’t wanna hear it
Your new laughter lines
I don’t wanna hear it
The new found friends she introduced you to
I don’t wanna know them I just want to be with you
Please don’t make me go to…
New York,New York

She took your heart away oh my
Her name was New York, New York
She poisoned your sweet mind

Her name was New York, New York
She took your heart away oh my
Her name was New York, New York
She poisoned your sweet mind

She poisoned your sweet mind.

Busy Bee

I am now officially a GCSE student, which surely counts as a valid reason for not posting recently. I’ve been so busy this week, we started straight into GCSE material – no transition period – and I’ve been trying to cope with 4 or 5 homeworks per night and an unreasonable religion teacher (what is it about me and religion teachers?). It’s strange being in fourth year, I’m not with the same people all the time because we all do separate subjects. Although, there are two boys in some of my classes that smell awful! And because of the ways the class register goes, I always sit beside them. It’s disgusting, can I spray them with deodorant without getting in trouble?

I’ve also been fighting with another girl in my year and dividing all of friends, which is stressful. All I really care about right now is focusing on my GCSEs and my aunty who has ovarian cancer. I’m scared that I will start to neglect my little corner of the internet, but I will try to post at least once a week. If someone takes the responsibility of warning me when I haven’t posted in a while, that would be great! :)

SONG OF THE WEEK All About That Bass Meghan Trainor Video & Lyrics

I love Meghan Trainor’s catchy, true and uplifting song. I don’t think that she’s fat at all, I think she’s a healthy size, to be honest. I’m not skinny but I’m happy enough with my size, and I think her song reiterates the point that you shouldn’t try to gain/lose weight just because of what other people think.

Lyrics:

Because you know
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass

Yeah, it’s pretty clear, I ain’t no size two
But I can shake it, shake it
Like I’m supposed to do
‘Cause I got that boom boom that all the boys chase
And all the right junk in all the right places

I see the magazine workin’ that Photoshop
We know that shit ain’t real
C’mon now, make it stop
If you got beauty, beauty, just raise ‘em up
‘Cause every inch of you is perfect
From the bottom to the top

Yeah, my mama she told me don’t worry about your size
She says, “Boys like a little more booty to hold at night.”
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that’s what you’re into then go ahead and move along

Because you know I’m
All about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass
Hey!

I’m bringing booty back
Go ahead and tell them skinny bitches that
No I’m just playing. I know you think you’re fat
But I’m here to tell ya
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top

Yeah my mama she told me don’t worry about your size
She says, “Boys like a little more booty to hold at night.”
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
So if that’s what you’re into then go ahead and move along

Because you know I’m
All about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass

Because you know I’m
All about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass

Because you know I’m
All about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass
‘Bout that bass, ’bout that bass
Hey, hey, ooh
You know you like this bass 

SONG OF THE WEEK Miley Cyrus FU Lyrics

EDIT: Wow, I can’t believe I found this. I thought that this post had deleted itself after I tried to publish is a few weeks ago. I just happened to come across it in my Drafts section.

I’m a tad pissed right now, I had a whole Song of The Week post written but it deleted itself and now I’ve changed my mind to FU. I like this song when I’m angry.

Lyrics:

[Intro:]
Oh, you broke my heart
I told you I was weak for love
But then you went around
And did what you wanted to do
And now I’m crying, crying

[Verse 1:]
Ooh, it seemed like everything was going fine
I found the love that I thought was gonna last
Then I accidentally saw a few things in your cell
I even LOL’d, man, I should’ve known
Why, why you’re doing what you do
You, you might as well just tell the honest truth
See, I’m not really down with this
This ain’t no texting shit
Know I got no biz,
But it is what it is

[Pre-Chorus:]
I don’t really have much to say
I was over it the second that I saw her name

[Chorus:]
I got two, ooh, ooh letters for you
One of them’s F and the other one’s U
‘Cause what you gotta do, is go get yourself a clue
Only two, ooh ooh letters to choose
One of them’s F and the other one’s U
SMH, I’m pressing send on you

[Post-Chorus: Miley Cyrus & French Montana]
Could’ve been this, could’ve been that
We done been there, we done been back
You ain’t with it, could’ve said that
Why you tripping, let me hit that
I ain’t trying to argue more.
I do it all for you,
You know you’re my right eye
Baby, let me show you

[Verse 2:]
Oh, I know what’s been going on
Don’t even try to act like Mr Super Nonchalant
What makes you think I’ll stick around
I’m not as stupid as you sound
And you sound really dumb right now
From A to Z, ooh
I got a lot of nasty things flowing up in my head
But none of them are worth my time
You’re not even worth this rhyme
And I don’t, I don’t give a flying

[Pre-Chorus:]
I don’t really have much to say
I was over it the second that I saw her name

[Chorus:]
I got two, ooh, ooh letters for you
One of them’s F and the other one’s U
‘Cause what you gotta do, is go get yourself a clue
Only two, ooh ooh letters to choose
One of them’s F and the other one’s U
SMH, I’m pressing send on you

Ooh, ooh, two letters for you, yeah, letters for you
What you trippin’ on, huh?
Girl, you know you’re wrong, huh?
Don’t let these girls drive you crazy

[Pre-Chorus:]
I don’t really have much to say
I was over it the second that I saw her name

[Chorus:]
I got two, ooh, ooh letters for you
One of them’s F and the other one’s U
‘Cause what you gotta do, is go get yourself a clue
Only two, ooh ooh letters to choose
One of them’s F and the other one’s U
SMH, I’m pressing send on you
