song of the week

Vanessa Hudgens- Whatever Will Be

Sometimes I feel like I’m a bird with broken wings
At times I dread my now and envy where I’ve been
But that’s when quiet wisdom takes control
At least I’ve got a story no one’s told

I finally learned to say
Whatever will be will be
I’ve learned to take
The good, the bad and breathe

‘Cause although we like
To know what life’s got planned
No one knows if shooting stars will land

These days it feels naive to put your faith in hope
To imitate a child, fall backwards on the snow
‘Cause that’s when fears will usually lead you blind
But now I try to under-analyse

Is the rope I walk wearing thin?
Is the life I love caving in?
Is the weight on your mind
A heavy black bird caged inside?

Say
Whatever will be will be
Take
The good, the bad
Just breathe

‘Cause although we like
To know what life’s got planned
No one knows if shooting stars will land

Whatever will be will be
I learned to take
The good, the bad and breathe
‘Cause although we like
To know what life’s got planned
Thing like that are never in your hands
No one knows if shooting stars will land

real girl

But I don’t wanna think about what’s gonna come around for me
I’ll just take it day by day ’cause it’s the only way
To be the best that I can be

I never pretend to be something I’m not
You get what you see when you see what I’ve got
We live in the real world, I’m just a real girl
I know exactly where I stand
And all I can do is be true to myself
I don’t need permission from nobody else
‘Cause this is the real world, I’m not a little girl
I know exactly who I am

song of the day III


I’m surrounded by
A million people I
Still feel all alone
I just wanna go home
Oh, I miss you, you know

song of the day II
