Fragile (Free)

I’ve been walking around all day, thinking
I think i have a problem, I think I think too much
I’ve been taught to hold back my tears and avoid them
But you’ve made pain into something I could touch

I’ve been walking around all day, laughing
Think I’d be better off without you here
And I bet you are sweet and hard to get over
So I’ll cry and people will stop and stare
Now that’s ok, let them stop and stare…

Coz I am fragile
I am hopeless
I’m not perfect
But I am free…

I’ve been walking around all day, waiting
And waiting is all I seem to do
´cause I never get it unless I’m fed it
But this time I’ll just have to
Yeah this time I’ll just have to…

And I am fragile
I am hopeless
I’m not perfect
But I am free…

Say you’re not around… am I finished?
If you’re not around that’s too bad
Hope you’re safe and sound, not alone now
´cause you know I believe in you…

I am so fragile
I am so hopeless
I’m not perfect
But I am free…

And I am fragile
I am hopeless
I’m not perfect
But I am free…

Cos I am fragile
I am hopeless
I’m not perfect
But I am free

I’m posting videos of Maria Mena, one from each album that I have. Maria Mena is one of those music influences I got from Nick from the many times I hung out at their house. I used to listen a lot to her songs back in 2007, mornings actually, with c&c. Some sort of pick-me-up-in-the-morning music. Fragile(Free) is a song from “White Turns Blue“, her international debut album released in 2004.

I rather loved “A Few Small Bruises” and “Just A Little Bit” too.

Just Hold Me

Comfortable as I am,
I need your reassurance
Comfortable as you are,
You count the days
But if I wanted silence I would whisper
If I wanted loneliness I’d choose to go
If I liked rejection I’d audition
And if I didn’t love you, you would know

So why can’t you just hold me,
how come it’s so hard?
Do you like to see me broken?
Why do I still care?

You say you see the light now
at the end of this narrow hall
I wish it didn’t matter
I wish I didn’t give you all

But if I wanted silence I would whisper
If I wanted loneliness I’d choose o go
If I liked rejection I’d audition
And if I didn’t love you, you would know

So why can’t you just hold me
How come it’s so hard?
Do you like to see me broken?
Why do I still care?

Poor little misunderstood baby
No one likes a sad face
But I can’t remember life without him
I think I did have good days
I’m sure I did have good days

So why

Apparently Unaffected” was released in 2005.  I tend to sing ‘Nevermind Me” when I feel like I’m a wallflower. Yeah, cast shadows on your walls… and, bottle up your smile and pour it in a cup.  “Calm under the Waves” is a track I like to listen to when I’m on a boat heading to some island. I guess those are my favorite tracks from this album, that I bought from Powerbooks in Bonifacio High Street by the way. (Hahaha!)

All This Time

You self destructive little girl
Pick yourself up don’t blame the world
So you screwed up but you’re gonna be ok
Now call your boyfriend and apologize
You pushed him pretty far away last night
He really loves you
You just don’t always love yourself.

(Chorus)
And all this time
Ohhh all this time
You have had it in you
You just sometimes need a push
All this time
Ohhh all this time
You have had it in you
You just sometimes need a push

Think all the mean girls that pulled your hair
Are barefoot now and pregnant there
And you write pop songs
And get to travel around the world

(Chorus)
And all this time
Ohhh all this time
You have had it in you
You just sometimes need a push
And all this time
Ohhh all this time
You have had it in you
You just sometimes need a push

So you’ve had some detours some stupid men
Now we know what not to do again
Besides you lucked out
Finally

(Chorus)
And all this time
Ohhh all this time
You have had it in you
You just sometimes need a push
All this time
Ohhh all this time
You have had it in you
You just sometimes need a push

All this time
Ohhh all this time
You have had it in you
You just sometimes need a push

(Fading)
All this time
All this time
