Song of the Day: Zedd feat Foxes – Clarity

Cant say much about Zedd  since i don’t really dig EDM but there’s a handful I can stomach and currently, Clarity has been playing in my head for a couple of days now after a friend posted this song on his facebook account. Zedd is like David Guetta in the sense of mixing pop and electronic but what makes him different from the other EDM artists is that he creates quality lyrics into his songs. Not just creating a beat and then that’s it. I guess that’s the reason why I like this song.

Here’s the acoustic version of the song which I love listening to over and over:

High dive into frozen waves where the past comes back to life
Fight fear for the selfish pain, it was worth it every time
Hold still right before we crash ’cause we both know how this ends
A clock ticks ’til it breaks your glass and I drown in you again

‘Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn’t need
Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don’t know why

If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?
If our love’s insanity, why are you my clarity?

Walk on through a red parade and refuse to make amends
It cuts deep through our ground and makes us forget all common sense
Don’t speak as I try to leave ’cause we both know what we’ll choose
If you pull then I’ll push too deep and I’ll fall right back to you

‘Cause you are the piece of me I wish I didn’t need
Chasing relentlessly, still fight and I don’t know why

If our love is tragedy, why are you my remedy?
If our love’s insanity, why are you my clarity?

Song of the Day: Tegan & Sara – Now I’m All Messed Up

TeganAndSarahIWasAFool1

I believe this album was released last year but it was the first time  today that I heard one of their singles , Now I’m All Messed Up. It was actually surprising to know this song coming from the twins. This one is comprehensible  compared to their usual outfit. Openly written, so raw and emotional.

About the song, it’s that phase in your life where you ask yourself at what point can you say enough is enough with someone? It’s like Adele’s Turning Tables but the difference is, this song chooses to still go on and buy that ticket to the roller coaster ride of emotions with this person. Guess it was explained at the last part of the song where Sara screams “Go!” and Tegan says “Please Stay…” (That’s my favorite part actually..hehe) It’s like saying you want to be alone but what you really mean is, I need you here with me, you don’t have to do anything. Just be here. That’s enough for me.

Anyways, to explain further from the songwriters themselves on how the song was created, the Quin sisters, ladies and gentlemen:

Have a listen:

Stay
You’ll leave me in the morning anyway
My heart
You’ll cut it out, you never liked me anyway
Why do you take me down this road
If you don’t want to walk with me?
Why do you exit, go it alone
When you could just talk to me?

Now I’m all messed up
Sick inside, wondering where
Where you’re leaving your makeup
Now I’m all messed up
Sick inside wondering who
Whose life you’re making worthwhile

Go, go, go if you want
I can’t stop you
Go if you want
I can’t stop you

Sad
You come back to me always anyway
Leave a mark
You say you never really loved her anyway
Why do I take this lonely road
Nobody here to walk with me
Don’t want to start fresh all over again
Why won’t you just comfort me?

Now I’m all messed up
Sick inside, wondering where
Where you’re leaving your makeup
Now I’m all messed up
Sick inside wondering who
Whose life you’re making worthwhile

Go, go, go if you want
I can’t stop you
Go if you want
I can’t stop you

Now I’m all messed up
I’m sick inside, wondering where
Where you’re leaving your makeup
Now I’m all messed up
Sick inside wondering who
Whose life you’re making worthwhile
