Jack Johnson – Better Together

I’d like to introduce this new song I’ve been hooked into the past couple of weeks. Well actually, this isn’t a new song. It isn’t even a newly synced song on my iPod. It was already there for months, I guess. And I’ve been listening to it for quite some time, enjoying the melody, but not totally understanding the lyrics, yet.  And just recently, I had the time to listen closely to the lyrics. And poof! There goes koko krunch! The song is a total sweetheart. The combination of the melody and its lyrics is very endearing to my ears. It’s like whispering the words in tune to what I’d love to hear.  The melody is very relaxing, with only the acoustic guitar and the artist’s bedroom voice singing.

And just like this song which has been on my playlist for quite sometime, so as my feelings for someone. LOL.

I’ve got this veerrrryyy weird habit of being too slow in understanding a LOT of things when it comes to matters of the heart, especially to my own! LOL. It’s soooo cheesy, I think you’re gonna puke on this post. Nonetheless…

I think, the main reason for my recent realizations is that, I’ve got a few extra time to think about things now. You know, having graduated and all. So yes, I think I had the time to think over things on a “bigger picture” without some of the obstructions at school.

But anyhow, yes, I am too slow. Too slow to think about people who have been around me for quite some time and not even noticing the possibilities, until their feelings are gone, and mine just started. And perhaps the greatest feeling I have right now is regret, more than anything else. That feeling of regret when I try to look at things way back months and years ago,  that would have made sense, but the me back then was trying to brush off the “thought” or the “feeling” of the possibility. Or, the me back then was just looking at the wrong direction.

Or was it not the right time then?

We’ll all I know is, it’s the right time to let you read the lyrics of the song I was talking about. LOL.

So here it is 🙂

“Better Together”

There is no combination of words I could put on the back of a postcard

No song that I could sing, but I can try for your heart

Our dreams, and they are made out of real things
Like a, shoebox of photographs
With sepia-toned loving

Love is the answer,

At least for most of the questions in my heart

Like why are we here? And where do we go?
And how come it’s so hard?
It’s not always easy and
Sometimes life can be deceiving
I’ll tell you one thing, it’s always better when we’re together

Mmm, it’s always better when we’re together

Yeah, we’ll look at the stars when we’re together
Well, it’s always better when we’re together
Yeah, it’s always better when we’re together

And all of these moments
Just might find their way into my dreams tonight
But I know that they’ll be gone
When the morning light sings
And brings new things
For tomorrow night you see
That they’ll be gone too
Too many things I have to do

But if all of these dreams might find their way

Into my day to day scene

I’d be under the impressionI was somewhere in between

With only two
Just me and you
Not so many things we got to do
Or places we got to be
We’ll sit beneath the mango tree now

Yeah, it’s always better when we’re together
Mmm, we’re somewhere in between together
Well, it’s always better when we’re together
Yeah, it’s always better when we’re together

Mmm, mmm, mmm

I believe in memories

They look so, so pretty when I sleep
Hey now, and when I wake up,
You look so pretty sleeping next to me
But there is not enough time,

And there is no, no song I could sing

And there is no combination of words I could say

But I will still tell you one thing

We’re better together.
