MM#01-Bring Me To Life – Evanescence

I love almost all of the songs of American rock band Evanescence. Today I picked Bring me to life in 2003 as the lead single from Evanescence’s debut studio album, Fallen. The song delivers genres from alternative metal to rap rock and gothic metal among others. “Bring Me to Life” has several meanings and inspirations; its subjects are an incident in a restaurant, open-mindedness, and waking up to the things which are missing in the protagonist’s life, According to Lee – one of the song writer. The lyrics of the song have been interpreted as a call for new life in Jesus Christ, which helped the song to chart on the Christian rock charts. Hope you will enjoy the music guys.

“Bring Me To Life”
(feat. Paul McCoy)

How can you see into my eyes like open doors?
Leading you down into my core where I’ve become so numb
Without a soul my spirit’s sleeping somewhere cold
Until you find it there and lead it back home

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

Now that I know what I’m without
You can’t just leave me
Breathe into me and make me real
Bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

Bring me to life
(I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside)
Bring me to life

Frozen inside without your touch
Without your love, darling
Only you are the life among the dead

All this time I can’t believe I couldn’t see
Kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
I’ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
Got to open my eyes to everything
Without a thought, without a voice, without a soul
Don’t let me die here
There must be something more
Bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

(Bring me to life)
I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside
(Bring me to life)

MM – Pearly Shells (Mickey’s Fun Songs)

Are you bored? happy? sad? excited? or whatever you are feeling right now, feel free to dance and sing this pearly shell together with the kids and Disney characters at Walt Disney World. You might wondering, of all the cool songs out there why Pearly shell? sigh.. because I want to go to Hawaii and dance pearly shell waaaa no no no, I just remember this song and our barkada (friends) own version when I was still teaching, in fact we even presented this song as energiser or ice breaker just for fun during seminars and trainings. Here’s our short version, i think only Cebuano or whoever speak cebuano or bisaya can understand the translation.

Pearly Shell……………….Usa ka kinhason

Pearly shell……………….Usa ka kinhason
From the Ocean……………..Gikan sa baybayon
Shining in the Sun………….Nga nagsidlak sidlak
Covering the Shore………….Nga may takob takob
When I see them…………….Nakita ko ikaw
My heart tells me that I love you………Gihigugma ko ikaw
More than all………………Labaw sa tanan
My little pearly shell………Gamay nga kinhason
