Celebrate the Day

In connection to yesterday’s post…here’s another song that I shall leave you guys with as Christmas Eve turns into Christmas Day. :) Much thanks to Gab for recommending this song (as I have it in Triskal for the longest time but never really took the time to listen to it)! :)


I Celebrate the Day
Relient K

With this Christmas wish is missed
The point I could convey
If only I could find the words to say to let You know
How much You’ve touched my life because
Here is where You’re finding me
In the exact same place as New Year’s Eve
And from the lack of my persistency
We’re less than half as close as I wanna be

And the first time that You opened Your eyes
Did you realize that You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did you know that it would change this world forever

And the first time that You opened your eyes
Did you realize that You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever

And so this Christmas I’ll compare
The things I’ve felt in prior years
To what this midnight made so clear
That You have come to meet me here

To look back
And think that
This baby would one day save me
And the hope that
That You give
That You were born so I might really live
To look back
And think that
This baby would one day save me…

And I
I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day
Pray for You to save my life

Pray for You to save my life
Pray for You to save my life

Happy birthday, dear Jesus! ♥ Merry Christmas to everyone! Have a blessed time with your loved ones. :)

Waste Another Day

I slept with a bad right eye. It feels a bit swollen, like an insect bit it and it hurts below the eye when you touch it or blink rapidly. It may be something I shouldn’t worry about, but my teammate, Grace, got an eye infection two weeks ago, so I can’t be too careful.

So I went to three different clinics from Galleria (Switchfoot ticket payment pickup) to Eastwood (Bowling practice) to Sta. Lucia to get my eye checked up. Clinic # 1 apparently doesn’t accept cards, Clinic # 2 doesn’t have an ENT for today (even if the girl told me the ENT would be there by 4:00 pm, hmph) and Clinic # 3 also don’t have the ENT in office. Boo. I hope this is really just an insect bite and not an eye infection and I hope this is gone by tomorrow so I won’t have to go to check up. Please Lord?

The past week, I’ve been soundtripping on the same songs over and over again. This soundtripping is because I’m bordering on being emo — something that I so am not. I hate being emo, I hate being sentimental and whatnot. Being emo means there’s something to be emo about…and no comment on that.

Yihee, issue! NOT.

Anyway, I want to share the songs I’ve been sound tripping on and maybe I’d find someone who is also singing the same songs somewhere out there (and gosh, that is like, so emo. Eep).

1. Symphony of a Blasé by Anberlin
“God if You can hear me out alright, please take these feelings for her inside.” Aaaargh. Anberlin, why do you write the best lines?

2. Dismantle.Repair by Anberlin
“If life had a background music playing your song, I’ve got to be honest, I tried to escape you, but the orchestra plays on.” Again, Anberlin, your lines are like, swak.

3. A Day Late by Anberlin
“But I must confess you’re so much more than I remember, can’t help but entertain these thoughts, thoughts of us together.” Not really relatable on my part, but I love these lines. :)

4. Downtown Song by Anberlin (yes, I love this band)
“And I wonder if you can relate to nights upon my pillowcase, eyes wide open middle of the night, you’re the last thing on my mind.” Awww.

And finally, the only lady in the bunch…

5. Waste Another Day by Brooke Fraser
Much thanks to Happy for the heads up on this song. Love, love, love this song! Since there’s so many wonderful lines in this song, I’ll be posting the whole lyrics, and you may listen to the song too! I leave you with this lovely song under the cut. :) Good night friends!

More Than Useless (Relient K)

Now this isn’t a review. I was listening to my trusty iPod and More Than Useless by Relient K played. I have to say that I love their album Mmhmm, but it’s been a while since I listened to any song in this album. I was refreshed with the familiar sound, and then I decided to look for the lyrics.

Well what do you know. I found a new theme song! :)

Relient K

I feel like, I would like
To be somewhere else doing something that matters
And I’ll admit here, while I sit here
My mind wastes away and my doubts start to gather
Whats the purpose? It feels worthless
So unwanted like I’ve lost all my value
I can’t find it, not in the least bit
and I’m just scared, so scared that I’ll fail you

And sometimes I think that I’m not any good at all
And sometimes I wonder why, why I’m even here at all
But then you assure me

I’m a little more than useless
And when I think that I can’t do this
You promise me that I’ll get through this
And do something right
Do something right for once

So I say if I can’t, do something significant
I’ll opt to leave most opportunities wasted
And nothing trivial, that life could give me will
Measure up to what might have replaced it
Too late look, my date book
Is packed full of days that were empty and now gone
And I bet, that regret
Will prove to get me to improve in the long run

I notice, I know this
Week is a symbol of how I use my time
Resent it, I spent it
Convincing myself the world’s doing just fine
Without me
Doing anything of any consequence
Without me
Showing any sign of ever making sense
Of my time , it’s my life
And my right, to use it like I should
Like he would, for the good
Of everything that I would ever know

I’m a little more than useless
When I think that I can’t do this
You promise me that I’ll get through this
And do something right
Do something right for once

I want to highlight the parts that struck me the most but I think I’m going to end up highlighting the whole song if I do!

To those who are feeling useless, wanting to be somewhere else than where you are right now…cheer up! You’re not useless, just as I am not. :) We’re all where we are for a purpose, and never get tired in believing in that. :)

Thank You Lord for speaking to me through this song. Have a great day everyone! ♥
