The Rest of My Life *updated*

I'm totally in love with this song and video...it's called The Rest of My Life by Lesser Than Jake. The video's very VERY meaninful...<3


------------------------------------------------------------------------
Lyrics upon mystical's request...ish! =P

I fell asleep last Saturday
Underneath polluted skies
I walked alone on those Jersey nights, and I
Saw the boardwalk start to fall
The emptiness starts to drown
The quiet corners of this town, and I...
Late last night, I made my plans
It was the only thing I felt I could do
Said goodbye, to my best friend
Sometimes there's no one left to tell you the truth

It's gonna kill me... The rest of my life
Let me apologize while I'm still alive
I know it's hard to face all of my past mistakes
It's gonna kill me for the rest of my life

This is my all time low
Somehow it feels so familiar
Somehow it seems so familiar
I feel like letting go
And every second that goes by
I'm screaming out for a second try
Said goodbye, to my best friend
Sometimes there's no one left to tell you the truth

It's gonna kill me... The rest of my life
Let me apologize while I'm still alive
I know it's hard to face all of my past mistakes
I've got to live with them the rest of my life
This is the mess I've made
These are the words I can't erase
This is my life support, shutting down, for the final time
And it twists like a blade
And kills me for the rest of my life

If you won't forgive me
The rest of my life
Let me apologize while I'm still alive
I know it's hard to face all of my past mistakes
It's gonna kill me for the rest of my life...

eh? why can't ur new post be commended one? nvm i put the comment here lolz

dun think the way u r thinking. our parents boss us around becoz they feel they're responsible for us. it's the same reason as u r looking after a 3 years old kid. u hafta boss him/her around too. see, our parents just forgot that we've grown up to the extent that we're able to think. that's all. like, for my case, when the time came to a-level/form 6 choice, i insisted on making my own choice. that includes my fight to drive myself to other places alone after getting my license for 6 months. i din do it by screaming to my parents about how they shud let me make the choice. and neither did i debate with them. it's becoz when u do, u show the immature side of you, and your parents surely won't trust you. think of it this way, if a 3 years old kid u haf been looking after tells u that he wants to ride bicycle alone on the road, of course u r worried, but when that kid started arguing about what rights he has, you surely won't give it a damn. same rule applies here. the point is, prove that you can do it. talk with them calmly, peacefully and in reasons. i still remember me talking with my mum about studying college or form 6. i said form 6, and i told her calmly that what i analyzed. financial situation, future career, what possibility would come in between and what do i haf in mind for the next two years. when u started talking like that, calmly and in reasons, ur parents will surely be surprised: this girl, has grown up. then they will start listening instead of denying. lolz.

and it doesn't matter whether it's our parents, our friends or whoever it is, when we're living on this earth, we will deal with conflicts no matter when it is. well, after i got to hk and started living with roommates, i learnt a lot of stuff. i posted a new blogpost on this topic yesterday. go have a look. maybe it will inspire you in a way. remember always that the day when everything in ur life fails and everything messed up, ur parents will still forgive u, altho they seem they did not. it's not that they're stubborn. it's becoz our parents' generation is not good at expressing their feelings and love to us. it needs u to find it out by yourself. and the thing about human is, we can't possibly change, unless we face a big downturn in life/big change/self-realisation, then only we will. so dun expect ppl to change. the golden rule: dun expect everyone to satisfy u. so what's the key to solving it? lolz...go read my blog la!!! LOLZ

er, their songs ar...good wor!! 'soundtrack of my life', 'a still life of franchise', 'mostly memories' and a lot more. lolz...i just finished downloading their albums. 110 songs in total. woooooooohooooooooooooooooo.....complete collection!!!! if u want, can get from me when i come back. ;-)
