Music Monday: CVS – Winnetka Bowling League

Heyooo peeps! Happy Monday…the 1st of November!! Super exciting!

Anyway, this song slaps. Do people still say that?? Ehh…whatever I’m gonna keep using it :T The “Chocolate hearts from CVS” just hits in a way that is so good. I’ve never found chocolate from CVS good…but like this song makes me want some.

The music video is also pretty cool…even though I haven’t really watched it a lot (just once or twice.)

CVS – Winnetka Bowling League

Lyrics

I’m starting to think I like
The sound of you and this city
The signs on the cold mass pike
The church is calling from New Amsterdam
And in a dream your future had a voice and he spoke like me
I’m starting to think

That I wanna buy you
Chocolate hearts from CVS
Kiss you too hard and follow you west
Sing you sad songs on a Sunday afternoon
Yeah I think I’d like to
Tie you in ways that you can’t undo
Dinner in bed and Korean food
Say I love you just a little bit too soon

Sleepy town boy
Corduroy bottoms
I keep my fat lip tucked
When you’re talking to me
We’ve got our SSRI’s in common
You check the box on my right-side column

I’m at ease
As quiet as suburban trees
Whenever you get around me
I got all I could ever need

And I wanna buy you
Chocolate hearts from CVS
Kiss you too hard and follow you west
Sing you sad songs on a Sunday afternoon
Yeah I think I’d like to
Tie you in ways that you can’t undo
Dinner in bed and Korean food
Say I love you just a little bit too soon

I’m starting to think I like
The sound of you and this city
The bells and the white search lights
I think I’m ready now to answer them
And in a dream, I hear your hum and noise and it sounds so free

And I wanna buy you
Chocolate hearts from CVS
Kiss you too hard and follow you west
Sing you sad songs on a Sunday afternoon
Yeah I think I’d like to
Tie you in ways that you can’t undo
Dinner in bed and Korean food
Say I love you just a little bit too soon

Until we meet again…take a trip to CVS?

P.P.S omg my intro was a mess…i’m going to keep it that way though lol.

Music Monday – Lovesong (The Way) [feat. Bluets] – Charlie Burg

Heyoo peeps! Happy Monday…is it odd that I can’t even remember much of last week’s Monday? …nahhh, it was probably just not that rememberable. Do you guys remember your last Monday?

Anyway, moving past my spotty memory, Music Monday is hosted by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. All you have to do is share one of your favorite song and it’s lyrics every Monday, and it’s open to anyone to do!

Today’s song is, “Lovesong (The Way)” from Charlie Burg. I just absolutely love it, it’s been playing on repeat and has been added to practically all my Spotify playlists. It feels old fashioned in a classical sort of way, like the kind of song that’d be played on vinyl from one of those old gramophone record players.

🎤✨ Lovesong (The Way) – Charlie Burg ✨💿

Sadly, there is no music video 😦
[Verse 1]
Why is your voice so sonically pleasing
To me?
I can't figure it out
Slight undertones of sadness
While you tell me you're gonna leave
I cannot bear to see you smiling
In that picture with your friends
I could go on about your smile
It's so grand

[Chorus]
But you take your time
My love
Don't ever tell me that it just takes time
To love
As long as I'm writing this song about your loveliness
Is it too much to ask
For a reply?
Or a text?
Or a way to tell you love me like before?

[Verse 2]
Now you're away with nothing to say
My heart aches like never before
Filled with desire
You've inspired me to write another verse
I think we're alone now
You can tell me it was all just, just a game
Yes, we're alone now
But the feeling's slightly changed
[Chorus]
But you take your time
My love
Don't ever tell me that it just takes time
To love
As long as I'm writing this song about my love for you
Is it too much to ask
For a reply?
Or a text?
Or a way to tell you love me like before?

[Bridge]
In your eyes I see something
I don't want to hear, oh
In your eyes I see poems and novels, short stories
I don't want to hear, oh
But you tell me anyway, anyway, woah

[Chorus]
You take your time
My love
Don't ever tell me that it just takes time
To love
As long as I'm writing this song about your loveliness
Is it too much to ask
For a reply?
Or a text?
Or a way to tell you love me like before? (x2)
Or a way to tell you love me

Lyrics courtesy of Genius

Until we meet again….

Music Monday: Have We Met Before – Sarah Barrios (with Eric Nam)

Bonjour! I hope you peeps are having a good Monday! It’s Sunday as I’m writing this but I’m hoping for a good Monday. I have French first thing so we’ll see how that goes.

Anyway, as always Music Monday is hosted by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. All you have to do is share one of your favorite song and it’s lyrics every Monday, and it’s open to anyone to do!

Today’s song is “Have We Met Before” by Sarah Barrios with Eric Nam. I’ve been playing this song on repeat, I love their vocals. This is the first song I’ve heard from Sarah but I’ve heard Eric before. They’re both amazing!! Highly recommend you look at both of their previous works.

🎶✨ Have We Met Before – Sarah Barrios ✨🕰

You sat down right at the corner of my table
I don’t know what it is but swear I'm feeling deja vu
Black cup of coffee and a book you’re skimming over
You’re a stranger but feel closer and when I'm lookin at you

PRE-CHORUS
Swear I feel you in my memory
I think I’ve seen you in dreams
Maybe you and I have history
But I don’t think you know me

CHORUS
Have we met before
Maybe In another life I knew you
Maybe if I try ill see right through you
And ill remember who we were
Have we met before
Maybe in another
time I loved you
Maybe you’re the one that I would run to
I don’t no why its all a blur
I think I know you

VERSE
I sat down right at the corner of your table
For some reason I thought maybe we had been right here before
Cant concentrate I just keep reading the same pages
And I don’t know how to say it but I wanna (know you more)

PRE-CHORUS
swear I feel you in my memory
I think ive seen you in dreams
Somehow you and I have history
But I don’t think you know me

CHORUS
Have we met before
Maybe In another 
life I knew you
Maybe if I try ill see right through you
And ill remember who we were
Have we met before
Maybe in another time I loved you
Maybe you’re the one that I would run to
I don’t no why its all a blur
I think I know you

Until we meet again…

Music Monday: How Lovely – Reinaeiry

Heyyyyy. Sorry I haven’t posted in a hot minute, last week was my first full week of school and I’m a mess. But, here I am today :T Let’s see if I can keep up posting on Mondays at least since I have no new poems 😦

Anyway, Music Monday is hosted by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. All you have to do is share one of your favorite song and it’s lyrics every Monday, and it’s open to anyone to do!

Today’s song is “How Lovely” by Reinaeiry; have I mentioned how much I love Reinaeiry’s songs and covers? No? Okay… maybe I have but I really can just go on forever about her songs, they are ✨ amazing ✨. I’ll probably end up posting more of her songs someday but for now I hope you enjoy “How Lovely!”

🎤✨ How Lovely – Reinaeiry ✨💕

Oh my gods,
This can’t be happening
Hit me faster than a bolt of lightning
She’s got me wrapped around her little finger
Cupid’s made a mistake and pulled the trigger
On the wrong set of girls
I don’t want to admit it but they’ve made a mistake
By pairing me with her
I’d really prefer 
Anybody else.

I don’t like the way
She smiles with her eyes
The way that the blue
reminds me of the skies
I really just hate
Leaving it to fate
Cause look where I’ve landed
Your arms and I’m stranded

Oh, and I know 
It’s inevitable to feel
Oh, and I pray
That she doesn’t hear my heart
Cause that’ll give me away
Oh!
I tried not to notice
The way that she makes me feel
Every touch, every look, every day
But wait…
Oh.

How lovely,
How lucky I must have been
To be at the right place, at the right time
For some higher power to start their design
Oh!
A complicated mess of feelings
A look thrown my way
Just sends me reeling
What is this feeling?
I don’t know just yet

Why me, Why now, Why her
Why does she make my heartbeat flutter
And why do I like it so much?
Oh and when she smiles,
I feel a little tingle in my chest
And at this point I’m really hoping it’s a heart attack
‘Cause I’m not supposed to feel this way
I’m the hunter, she’s the prey
I’m falling deeper everyday,
I try to stop but there’s no way!
Oh no! Oh
And I can’t help but to wonder

How lovely,
How lucky I must have been
To be at the right place, at the right time
For some higher power to start their design
Oh!
A complicated mess of feelings
A look thrown my way
Just sends me reeling
What is this feeling?
Oh, what is this feeling!
Woah!

Love you all and until we meet again…

Music Monday: Christmas In My Heart – Loving Caliber ft. Mia Pfirrman

Happy Monday! Currently I’m heading into my last week of summer break and that means I’m beginning to panic over school. But I hope to keep up blogging consistently…though last week proved to be difficult. I have a bit of a writer’s block so if you don’t see poems or other posts it’s because of that.

Anyway, for this Music Monday I wanted to share a bit of holiday spirit in July. I was walking through Hallmark the other day and they were playing Christmas music, putting me in this holiday mood. (A little secret though, Christmas isn’t my favorite holiday, Halloween is 🎃 )

As always, Music Monday is hosted by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. Join in by sharing one of your favorite songs and its lyrics!

Happy Monday and winter holidays in July! 🎄

✨🎄 Song & Lyrics 🎁✨

(Intro)
Hold up I am on my way
I'm in motion
Let’s go to the ocean
Yeah, let's go outside

(Verse)
We can hang out on the beach without freezing
Yeah isn't that amazing?
In Christmas times

(Chorus)
We’ll be chillin' and having a good good time
Doesn't matter if the snow is fallin'
All the windows, and the rain is pourin'
It will always be Christmas in my heart
But this year I
Wanna hang out with my friends and family
Making angels in the sand you and me
Doesn't matter, it is Christmas in my heart

(Verse)
And I can promise Santa's coming to visit
No he wouldn't miss this
In Christmas times
Ohh
(Bridge)
Oh and, sunset it is just getting better on a blanket with a skylight painted in blue
Ooh, that’s what we do

(Chorus)
We’ll be chillin' and having a good good time
Doesn’t matter if the snow is fallin'
All the windows, and the rain is pourin'
It will always be Christmas in my heart
But this year I
Wanna hang out with my friends and family
Making angels in the sand you and me
Doesn't matter, it is Christmas in my heart

(Bridge)
Here we go!
Alright
(Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance)
Now this Christmas, we’re gonna dance
(Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance)
Okay?
Come on!
(Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance)
We're gonna dance, dance, and have a good time
Gonna dance, dance, all night long
We're gonna dance, dance, and have a good time
I think Santa's gonna come and join us in this song
Ooh yeah!

(Chorus)
Doesn't matter if the snow is fallin'
(Snow is fallin')
All the windows, and the rain is pouring'
(Pourin'!)
It will always be Christmas in my heart
But this year I
Wanna hang out with my friends and family
Making angels in the sand you and me
(You and me! Yeah!)
Doesn't matter it is Christmas in my heart

Until we meet again…I hope you have a lovely day ❤

Fun Friday: Me and Music Tag

Heyo peeps! Happy 🍟 day!

Today, I decided to do the Me and Music tag. I first saw this tag from Riddhi @ Whispering Stories and thought it looked fun. A thanks to her for leaving a nomination open for anyone to do.

Without further ado let’s begin!!

~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~

The Rules

  • Link back to the original (Sophie @ Me and Ink) so she can see your answers and listen to the tunes.
  • For every prompt you choose to do, name 1-5 songs (you can use Sophie’s graphics)
  • Have fun and play your music LOUD!

You will notice that I have used Sophie’s graphics, they were just too cute not to.

~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~

Apologizes in advance for if I repeat songs that I’ve already recommended before…they were probably just too good not to associate the prompt with them.

Cool Down – Kolohe Kai // “We’re living in Hawaii with Aloha and pride, yeah”

He Mele No Lilo – Mark Kealiʻi Hoʻomalu

Bamboo – Kimie Miner // “Oh love it’s true the storms will come but we’ll make it through”

Freckles and Constellations – Dodie // “All those cute conversations” // “I’m star struck, for you” // “Never had a moment that was quite like this”

Hopelessly – Reinaeiry // “I’m a hopeless romantic” // “Great poets are made of
Unrequited love.”

All My Love – SEVENTEEN // “Hello my joy” // “I’ll become your umbrella in the rain”

I don’t know why but I really struggled with this prompt. Maybe I don’t dance around to music as often as I thought I do? Idk…

Super Trouper – ABBA // “Feeling like a number one”

I love ABBA and I can not stress that enough. I also adore all the different recordings of the classic songs from A*Teens and the Mamma Mia cast. Not only must I dance but I must sing along.

The Coast of Galiçia – Celtic Woman

This song is an instrumental/orchestra piece so there are no lyrics but it’s so fun to twirl around to. I first listened to this song while reading a dancing scene from a fanfic and I fell in love with it. If you read fanfics from the Harry Potter fandom I totally recommend it, it’s called, “What the Room Requires.”

Better When I’m Dancin’ – Meghan Trainor // “Just move those left feet” // “Prove to them you’ve got the moves” // “We knew that you could do it”

Elephant Love Medley – Moulin Rouge

I must admit that I’ve never made it through one sitting of Moulin Rouge. But, this song was on my parent’s wedding video and I absolutely love it.

Don’t Lose Your Head – Six the Musical // “I didn’t really mean it but rumours spiral”

I adore this whole musical, the songs are so fun to sing. This historical inspiration behind it is tragic but it’s still a fun album to listen to.

Good Enough – A Week Away // “Not exactly what the kids these days are calling cool” // “Don’t let them tell you you’re not good enough” // “You just gotta be you, don’t break yourself apart”

I found myself really surprised when I realized how many songs on this soundtrack I actually liked. Normally I’m not very into religious/Christian songs, but this soundtrack was very subtle. My two other favorite songs from this movie were “Let’s Go Make a Memory” and “Best Thing Ever.”

Anybody Have a Map? – Dear Evan Hansen // “Another stumble as I’m reaching for the right thing to say”

I love the entire album but I relate to this song a lot. I know it’s about parenting but just being in high school is confusing. It’d be great to have a map lol.

People I Don’t Like – UPSAHL // “Yeah, I don’t really wanna be here like, ah-ah-ah-ah” // “So let’s pretend we like each other”

This song got me through the majority of my sophomore year group projects. I don’t necessarily love group projects…really I hate them, but sometimes they are just unavoidable. I found peace in this song when I really felt done with my group members.

Awesome God/God Only Knows – A Week Away // “All the memories, they somehow never leave you” // “God only knows how it’s killing you”

We Still (Be With U) – ASTRO // “I’ll protect you, an unchanging confession” // “I will pick you up, don’t be alone”

I adore ASTRO, they’re one of my favorite groups. Normally I would say You & Me is my comfort song from them but since I believe I mentioned it before I decided to pick one of their other songs.

Stay Beautiful – Jamie // “Don’t let these haters come by” // “You better hold your head high”

There are two versions of this song I like the first version a lot, but the Jamie ver. is also very good.

Halfway Around The World – A*Teens // “Halfway around the world. That won’t stop me from loving you.”

Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride – Mark Kealiʻi Hoʻomalu // “There’s no place I’d rather be, then on my surfboard out at sea”

Let me be clear that I do not know how to surf lol. I also don’t exactly like going to the beach…but this song was on the radio constantly when I was in elementary. My class even did our May day dance to it one year.

Count on Me – Bruno Mars // “You’ll always have my shoulder when you cry”

I used to listen to a LOT of Bruno Mars when my mom and I were in the car. Mostly because we had the album this song came from on CD but we also liked the songs.

What Makes You Beautiful – One Direction // “You’re insecure, don’t know what for”

I was never really a big fan of One Direction, don’t get me wrong their songs are really good, but I wasn’t one of those people with posters of them hanging on my walls. I just remember listening to this song a lot in the car, it was also the song picked for my summer fun’s end of summer dance program.

Into the I-Land – IU // “Let’s do our best, let’s just try”

I love IU’s version but I also really like the Final Version from the I-Land Applicants.

Dear Me – Taeyeon // “I trust myself” // “See how I’ve endured through the long darkness”

Left & Right – SEVENTEEN // “Keep your eyes wide open and your chin up” // “Let’s go together with no worries”

Kiss Me – Sixpence None The Richer // “Oh, kiss me, beneath the milky twilight” // “Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance”

Leaving on a Jet Plane – John Denvers // “Kiss me and smile for me” // “Hold me like you’ll never let me go”

I like most versions of this song but I’m particularly fond of The Macarons Project cover of it.

Fly Me to the Moon – Frank Sinatra // “Let me play among the stars” // “In other words, hold my hand”

Head Over Heels – The Go-Go’s // “It looked so easy. But you know looks sometimes deceive” // “Looks like the whole world’s out of sync”

I adore older music, and I have so many more favorite songs but I held myself back.

I Hear a Symphony – Cody Fry // “Perfection is so quick to bore”

Remember – WINNER // “There’s no good in ending us” // “We carrying nothing but a goring burden” // “So I put “SORRY” ten times for sure”

Us, Again – SEVENTEEN // “One day, we’re gonna have a lot of waves” // “We sing together again, until that day”

So, these songs probably won’t make everyone cry but for me I start tearing up every time. It’s probably my fault that I associate the first song with crying because when I first listened to it I was watching a sad(ish) animatic. The other two are just well I guess I’m afraid of good things ending. It’s hard to imagine your favorite band/group/friendships breaking up, and these songs really strike those cords for me. Seventeen also has a song, “Smile Flower,” that made me cry when I first listened to it and read the lyrics too.

7up – Boy in Space // “I promise I will love you even with my broken heart” // “I don’t really mind ’cause I love you” // “And I was writing poetry about you everyday”

Good 4 u – Olivia Rodrigo // “You look happy and healthy, not me” // “You’re doing great out there without me, baby” // “Like a damn sociopath”

Retro Love – BOYHOOD // “Because you are just you without any ‘Why'”

picking flowers – kayden // “What happened to all the dreams that we had?” // “When it was easy to be grateful”

I didn’t really pay much attention to these songs’ lyrics before this…now they seem so sad. But they’re so catchy and will remain on repeat for a while to come.

For some reason this was the last prompt I filled out. It’s not that I don’t have favorite lyrics, it’s just that I like so many songs lyrics (if that’s not obvious from the lyrics I pulled in the previous prompts lol).

Simple – Woozi (from SEVENTEEN) // “Happiness is only a word” // “In this exit-less, maze-like world” // “I hope we can all smile when the night is over”

A Good Song Never Dies – Saint Motel // “The first time it made you cry, the first time you felt alive”

Shop Of Wonders – Reinaeiry // “Am I loved in a photograph?” // “Don’t need money / To spend my time with you” // “You’ll be my song / I’ll be your melody”

dancing in the kitchen – Zachary Knowles // “I just wanna dance with you” // “Let’s get dressed up for no occasion” // “We’ll stay up talking ’til it’s light out”

I’ve decided to skip this prompt because I’ve never really kept up with what songs are on the charts…like I might like a popular song but I won’t know if it’s on the Billboard’s Hot 100.

Come and Get It – Selena Gomez

I must say that this is not my favorite song. It is however very strongly ingrained into my memory after spending a good portion of my summer listening to it. I forget how old I was but my friends at summer fun decided they wanted to dance to this song for the talent show. I was not apart of the routine. However, in order to practice with music they requested to borrow our leader’s phone. I got to be the responsible one, trusted with the phone, and so I was stuck listening to this song pressing pause and play when needed.

Keep Your Head Up – Andy Grammar // “This is just a journey, drop your worries” // “Skeptics mess with the confidence in my eyes” // “Only rainbows after rain”

The entirety of 5th grade wrapped up in one song. My 5th grade teacher had this thing with her classes where we picked a class song, this was our’s. We learned the lyrics, sang along, and played it in the background of our class parties. 5th grade drama seems so silly now. I miss it.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow – Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwoʻole // “Where trouble melts like lemon drops”

This particular memory comes from middle school, and while my time in middle school was full of regret and embarrassment I’ve come to cherish my memories. I forget what grade we were in, 7th or 8th, one of those two. My homeroom/advisory were just hanging out before lunch time, and one of my classmates started playing the song and singing (he always carried around his ukulele). I don’t know what it was, maybe something was in the air lol, but everyone else joined along with him. We weren’t all the best singers but it was good fun and I’ll look back on that moment fondly. I used to find my homeroom annoying at best, but now I miss them. They were a constant that high school no longer offers.

Paper Rings – Taylor Swift // “I like shiny things, but I’d marry you with paper rings”

Can I Have This Dance – High School Musical // “Now won’t you promise me
that you’ll never forget.”
// “Don’t be afraid, afraid to fall.
You know I’ll catch you through it all.”

Honestly I can’t help but sing to any and all High School Musical songs. 😅 😂

Pretty U – SEVENTEEN // “When I see you, it’s breathtaking” // “I want to pick and gather all
the pretty words for you”
// “I am counting flower petals all day long”

Monster – Shawn Mendes & Justin Bieber // “I was fifteen when the world put me on a pedestal” // “I came in with good intentions, then I let it go”

Cabinet Man – Lemon Demon // “You can’t win me, I can’t be beat” // “I only want to have fun”

I never really paid attention to the lyrics in this song…or really any Lemon Demon song, they were just there to drown out my thoughts. But dang these lyrics are really good.

Dead Girl Walking (Reprise) – Heathers the Musical // “It’s one more dance and then farewell” // “I wish grown-ups understood!”

I must say I don’t normally get attached to full albums so I struggled with this prompt, I’m more of a single song obsession girl lol.

Semicolon – SEVENTEEN // “It’s okay to think about it more” // “This feeling of wanting to know more” // “My love only amounts to this”

I love all of SEVENTEEN’s albums, I found it really hard to pick just one. Some of my favorites from this album are, “Do Ri Me,” “AH! Love,” and “All My Love.” I also really love their Love & Letter Repackage album.

Woodland – The Paper Kites // “We’re all just searching for something” // “And we’ll hate what we’ve lost but we’ll love what we find” // “Success is a song of the heart, not a song of your head”

This was the first album I’m ever listened to from The Paper Kites, but I absolutely love it. I often listen to it while doing homework.

Snap Shoot – SEVENTEEN // “Our laughter in the picture is all” // “”Snap shoot, I want to capture that smile”

Seventeen never fails to make me smile. I love the candidness of this music video and the fact that it was directed by Mingyu just made it so much more special.

All Night – ASTRO // “So ridiculous, here I am waiting for your call tonight” // “Gonna stay up all night telling you what I couldn’t before” // “I’ll never get tired of your voice”

This music video is just everything. I think it was Astro’s first dip into a more elegant style and it’s just so etherial, the flowers, the outfits. It was just so different from everything I knew them to usually be and it was amazing. Don’t get me wrong, I love their more boyish and playful music videos, but this one is just on a different level.

The Way You Felt: The Story – Alec Benjamin // “Oh I fell for your charm I was so infatuated” // “Is your heart just preconditioned for brevity”

This was such an interesting music video to watch. The way he included the story with subtitles just made it so much more personal.

~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~

🎧 Spotify Playlist 🎶

Unfortunately “Freckles and Constellations” isn’t on Spotify but here’s the Youtube link! As I was adding the songs I also realized “Us, Again” isn’t either so here’s the link. I added on Downpour from I.O.I and Smile Flower in it’s place on the playlist.

~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~☆~

I had loads of fun doing this tag, though it did take me what felt like forever to find songs, and I was definitely using it to procrastinate on some very important homework :T

If you didn’t notice, I was heavily inspired by the colored text in Sophie’s post, and so I thought I’d try it out. The colors were a lot of fun to incorporate, and it was a new concept to me (before this I didn’t know how to make certain lines different colors). I probably won’t use colored text very often after this but I want to try use it sometimes!

I hope you guys had fun reading this post, maybe you even learned something about me from these songs. I don’t really have anyone to nominate…so I’ll just leave it open for anyone to do!

Until we meet again….have a wonderful weekend & 🍟 day, don’t procrastinate, and stay safe!

Monday Music: _inside – JUNNY(주니)

Heyo peeps! I’d like to say Happy Monday, but I don’t view Mondays very positively :/ But I hope you guys are having a great Monday :))

Anyway, you know the drill, Music Monday is hosted by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. All you have to do is share one of your favorite song and it’s lyrics every Monday, and it’s open to anyone to do!

Today, I’d like to share _inside by JUNNY(주니). It’s a fairly new favorite of mine but I think that lyrics are pretty relatable. I found this song through the videos youtube has recommended to me. I first listened and feel in love with this song through JUNNY’s live vocals.

However, I’ve recently watched the animated music video and I thought it was pretty cool too. It has a scene from one of my favorite dramas, “Run On.” I totally recommend it lol, it also has a song from JUNNY playing in the background.

English Translation

Get it from the back
I know you like it like that

A missed call while I was asleep
With tired eyes, I check who it’s from
Not a single call that I’m happy to see
There's nothing really good for me
Maybe I'll go back to sleep

There are certain days
Oh no Once or twice
We have those days where we don’t wanna do a single thing
I realized today's the day
My very own ocean 
Where no one can find me

Cuz Imma stay inside
It’s my own paradise
Diving into my bedsheets
It’s too dangerous outside these walls
A calming mood light rather than the burning sunlight
My own ceiling shines brighter than the blue sky
(La di dat da da da da)

Got my k-dramas on all day
Think I’m falling for Shin Sae Kyeong (oh no)
I think I’m running on again
oops that's my own privacy
Im tryna set up the mood
Bring up my memo
And begin to write another predictable love song
Nothin better than that
I’m straight girl, I’m just statin the facts, yeah

There are certain days
oh no Once or twice
We have those days where we don’t wanna do a single thing
I realized today's the day
My very own ocean 
Where no one can find me

Cuz Imma stay inside
It’s my own paradise
Diving into my bedsheets
It’s too dangerous outside these walls
A calming mood light rather than the burning sunlight
My own ceiling shines brighter than the blue sky
(La di dat da da da da
As my screen turns off and I see the reflection of myself in the black screen,

I realize you’re the one I’m missing
In the story of my movie, we’re one
Something isn’t right
Girl, I think I need you by my side

so come and stay inside
To our paradise
Diving into my bedsheets
Its too dangerous outside these walls
A calming mood light rather than the burning sun light
My own ceiling shines brighter than the blue sky
(La di dat da da da da)

Imma stay inside
My own paradise
And we gon be alright yeah
(La da da da da da)
Imma stay inside
My own paradise
And we gon’ stay inside today, yeah

Korean Lyrics

[Intro]
Get it from the back
I know you like it like that

[Verse 1]
잠든 사이 남겨진 부재중
부어오른 두 눈을 비비고 봐
이 중에 반가운 건 하나두
There's nothing really good for me
Maybe I'll go back to sleep, hm-hm

[Pre-Chorus]
때로 가끔씩
Oh no 한두 번씩
어떤 것도 안 하고 싶을 때 있잖아
I realized today's the day
아무도 찾아오지 못할 나의 조그만 바다

[Chorus]
'Cause I'ma stay inside
나만의 paradise
이불을 덮고 diving in
창문 밖은 위험하잖아
따끔한 햇빛 보다 은은한 mood light
푸른 하늘 대신 my own ceiling shines
La-da-da-da-da-da

[Verse 2]
온종일 틀어 놓은 드라마 (Ooh-ooh)
신세경에 반한 것 같아 (Oh no)
I think I'm running on again
Oops, that's my own privacy
I'm tryna set up the mood
메모장을 열고
뻔한 사랑 얘기를 그려봐
Nothin' better than that? I'm straight, girl
I'm just statin' the facts, yeah?

[Pre-Chorus]
때로 가끔씩
Oh no 한두 번씩
어떤 것도 안 하고 싶을 때 있잖아
I realized today's the day
누구도 찾아오지 못할 나의 조그만 바다

[Chorus]
'Cause I'ma stay inside
나만의 paradise
이불을 덮고 diving in
창문 밖은 위험하잖아
따끔한 햇빛 보다 은은한 mood light
푸른 하늘 대신 my own ceiling shines
La-da-da-da-da-da

[Bridge]
새까만 화면 속에 나 홀로 옆에 없는 건 you, yeah
My movie 속 스토리엔 we're one
이상한 기분이야
Girl, I think I need you by my side

[Chorus]
So come and stay inside
우리의 paradise
이불을 덮고 diving in (Diving in)
창문 밖은 위험 하잖아 (Yeah)
따끔한 햇빛 보다 은은한 mood light
푸른 하늘 대신 my own ceiling shines
La-da-da-da-da-da

[Outro]
I'ma stay inside (Woo), yeah
My own paradise
(La-da-da-da-da-da)
And we gon' be alright, yeah
(La-da-da-da-da-da) Oh no
I'ma stay inside
My own paradise
(La-da-da-da-da-da)
And we gon' stay inside today, yeah

Music Monday: Like 1999 – Valley

HEYO PEEPS! I have energy today lol, Monday has not drained me yet. This is the first week where I have no summer school but it is also one week closer to going back to school…not a fun thought.

Anyway, Music Monday is hosted by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. All you have to do is share one of your favorite song and it’s lyrics every Monday, and it’s open to anyone to do!

This week, I decided to share “Like 1999” from Valley. I really like all of Valley’s songs, they’re all bops, but I think this one kind of connected to the poem I’m posting this week. I hope you guys enjoy it!

🎸✨ Like 1999 – Valley ✨📹

[Verse 1]
Woke up, it's 2021
I wanna get texts, but I never wanna text back
Fuck man, I'm 2020 done
Another paycheck and I blew it, but I'm still sad

[Pre-Chorus]
We talk all of the time
But it still feels like I'm just a voice on the line, so

[Chorus]
If you wanna come over, watch Friends and then get high
Use my phone as a coaster, we'll travel back in time
Lights on the ceiling, we're more than a feeling
If you wanna come over, act like it's 1999

[Verse 2]
Woke up, had a dream about you
We were parked in a Pontiac, making out, no internet
Ten things I hate about you, honestly nothing

[Pre-Chorus]
We talk all of the time and I love it
So what are you doing tonight?

[Chorus]
If you wanna come over, watch Friends and then get high
Use my phone as a coaster, we'll travel back in time
Lights on the ceiling, we're more than a feeling
If you wanna come over, act like it's 1999-9-9-9 (One sec')

[Bridge]
Do you mind if I'm nostalgic? Let's go back before 2000
Back before our love was so distracted
I wish that Y2K had happened, we would stay forever classic
You and I would both be trapped in, in 1999

[Pre-Chorus]
We talk all of the time and I love it
So what are you doing tonight?

[Chorus]
If you wanna come over, watch Friends and then get high
Use my phone as a coaster, we'll travel back in time
Lights on the ceiling, we're more than a feeling
If you wanna come over, act like it's 1999
If you wanna come over, act like it's 1999

Until we meet again…have fun but stay safe!

Fun Friday: Youtube Playlists I’ve Enjoyed 🎶

Heyo peeps! Welcoming to another Fun Friday, Happy 🍟 day! I really want french fries lol. Anyway, today I’ve decided to share some youtube playlists that I love. I really like looking for new music and playlists that match my feelings at different moments in time. Themed playlists are lovely things that I admire the creators for, I’d love to be able to match songs to feelings as well as they do. I’ve categorized the playlists into different themes and then further into to different events. I hope you enjoy them or find a new favorite song

✨The Playlists✨


💃🏽 Dance Dance 🕺🏽

Dancing 🕺🏽

For the times you just feel like jumping on your bed or flailing (’cause I don’t dance I just flail my arms around lol) around the room.

Twirling 💃🏽

Some may say that “twirling” is the same as dancing or flailing around, but I beg to differ. Twirling is done in a long preferably poofy skirt and moderate heels or no shoes at all in the middle of the night, with or without a partner.


✨ W/ or W/o Friends, Chilling ✨

Hanging Out 🎤📹

Songs to sing to goofily and laugh or just play in the background living that main character life.

Late Nights 🌃

Lying in the dark at a sleepover talking about nothing and everything at once. Dreams, fears, and feelings. Late nights are for secrets and giggling.

Doing Nothing 🌧

Staring at the ceiling just breathing in life. There’s nothing to do and productivity is a thing of the past. Cold tiles, wooden floors, or carpet, it doesn’t matter. C’est la vie.


🎻 Academics ✏️

Trying to Study While the Sun is Still Up 📝📓📖🌅

Trying to be a productive, A+ student who doesn’t stay up ’til the crack of dawn. Rather we wake up at dawn and do our homework at a reasonable time, after school while the sun is still shining and the world is awake. The ideal study schedule where a decent amount of sleep is the norm.

Late Night Studying 📝📓📖🌃

When you’ve given up on being a student who studies when the sun is still up. Procrastination has caught you in it’s snares, now it’s the middle of the night and your final project is due in the morning. Or maybe a burst of creativity has enthralled you and you must follow it. Either way the world is sleeping, the stars are bright, and sounds are quiet.

Drowning Out Thoughts 🔊🎧

When all seems to be falling apart, the paper is blank and your thoughts seem too loud. Nothing is working and all hope seems lost. Sometimes you just need that silence that comes from blasting music.


✨ Other ✨

Playlist I really wanted to recommend 💖

I’ve listened to this playlist for everything above. Dancing, vibing, studying, and drowning my thoughts, a playlist for all and any occasions.

I hope you enjoyed!

Until we meet again…have all my love and listen to some good music! ❤

~hiddengirl75

P.S. I hope it’s obvious but none of these playlists or songs are mine, I just wanted to share them with you guys.

Music Monday: Retro Love – BOYHOOD

Heyo peeps!! Welcome back to the second Music Monday on my blog! >_<

Music Monday is hosted by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. It’s basically sharing one of your favorite song and it’s lyrics every Monday, and it’s open to anyone to do!

Today, I’m going to share Retro Love by BOYHOOD. It’s a k-pop/k-indie song that I’ve recently been in love with. It has a very retro vibe, the music video is also really cute. I hope you enjoy it!

✨ Retro Love – BOYHOOD ✨ 📹

English Translation

Just like that, just like that
The day before yesterday, you looked at me just like that
Making me lonely, lonely
Because you are just you without any 'Why'
 
I must have been a little tipsy last night
I'm sorry no matter what you say
Even though the sky is blue
I have to go take a walk alone
 
It seems like you only see me as a friend
Live however you want to live
 
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Since it's all over, baby, come take a look
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
It's probably still a cold winter outside
Are you okay?
 
It's probably still a cold winter
 
A blue, a blue
A new blue pretentious look of yours
You make me, you make me
Confused again
I've got no clue, just beat everything up
 
I got a nervous
I'll Retro Love you
Even though the sky is black
I feel like I have to sleep alone
 
Even in dreams you and I are still only friends
Live however you want to live
 
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Since it's all over, baby, come take a look
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
It's probably still a cold winter outside
Are you okay?
 
It's probably still a cold winter
 
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Since it's all over, baby, come take a look
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
It's probably still a cold winter outside
Are you okay?
 
It's probably still a cold winter.

Korean Lyrics

넌 그렇게 그렇게
넌 그저께 날 그저 그렇게 봐
난 외롭게 외롭게
넌 왜 없게 넌 그저 그러니까
 
어제는 조금 취했었나 봐
미안해 네가 뭐라든 간에
하늘도 파란데
홀로 가야지 산책
 
넌 나를 친구로만 생각하네
너 마음대로 하도록 하세요
 
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
다 끝났으니 그대여 살펴가시오
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
밖은 아직도 추운 겨울일 텐데
Are you okay?
 
추운 겨울일 텐데
 
파렇게 파렇게
새파란 네 가식적인 모습이
나를 또 나를 또
햇갈리게 해
모르겠다 다 때려 쳐
 
I got a nervous
I'll Retro Love you
하늘도 검은데
홀로 자야지 선감
 
꿈에서도 너와 나 친구 사이
너 마음대로 하도록 하세요
 
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
다 끝났으니 그대여 살펴가시오
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
밖은 아직도 추운 겨울일 텐데
Are you okay?
 
추운 겨울일 텐데
 
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
다 끝났으니 그대여 살펴가시오
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
밖은 아직도 추운 겨울일 텐데
Are you okay?
 
추운 겨울일 텐데
