We are just Ordinary People

1 01 2010

Before I begin, let me just ask you all something. Did 2009 seem to past by fast? Through out 2009 I felt the earth spinning faster. Everything just seemed to go really fast and there was no time to stop.

A couple of days ago I bought the soundtrack of FAME with my Christmas money. I saved the soundtrack on my laptop and into my Ipod nano. There is one song that I can’t help but constantly listen to. Ordinary people by Asher Book.

We’re just ordinary people
We don’t know which way to go
’cause we’re ordinary people
Maybe we should take it slow (Take it slow oh oh ohh)
This time we’ll take it slow (Take it slow oh oh ohh)
This time we’ll take it slow

Above is the lyrics from the chorus. It is actually a love song. But the chorus is amasing.We are Ordinary people. We need to take it slow. Think about 2009 for a little bit please. Did it not go by fast for you? Did you rush through anything?WHY? We are people. Not robots. There is nothing to rush. We humans rush like crazy to save time and with all the saved up time we have, we just waste it on TV or something really lame. We need to slow down.

To all the working folk, calm down. Settle deals slowly this year. A rushed brain lowers productivity. Do things slowly and well and be done with it. Not do it fast and then it ends up to be crappy.

To students, including those in Polys, Universities, Pre-U or other standards, in exams take your time. Don’t rush. You miss stuff out when you rush through everything then you don’t do well. What is the point?

To everyone, let 2010 be meaningful. Let it have a slow pace so that you get the job done and can smell the wonderful roses at the same time. We have to enjoy 2010 and yet we do not understand why.

I dare each and every person here to slow down for 2010. Take time to breathe. You have to let your brain think for a little while and slow down. You are an Ordinary person. NOT A SUPER COMPUTER

We are Ordinary People. To my fellow Ordinary People, ‘this time we will take it slow’

With my regards

Cheyenne Phillips





The Real Me by Natalie Grant

10 01 2009

Foolish heart looks like we’re here again
Same old game of plastic smile
Don’t let anybody in
Hiding my heartache, will this glass house break
How much will they take before I’m empty
Do I let it show, does anybody know?

But you see the real me
Hiding in my skin, broken from within
Unveil me completely
I’m loosening my grasp
There’s no need to mask my frailty
Cause you see the real me

Painted on, life is behind a mask
Self-inflicted circus clown
I’m tired of the song and dance
Living a Charade, always on parade
What a mess I’ve made of my existence
But you love me even now
And still I see somehow

But you see the real me
Hiding in my skin, broken from within
Unveil me completely
I’m loosening my grasp
There’s no need to mask my frailty
Cause you see the real me

Wonderful, beautiful is what you see
When you look at me
You’re turning the tattered fabric of my life into
A perfect tapestry
I just wanna be me

But you see the real me
Hiding in my skin, broken from within
Unveil me completely
I’m loosening my grasp
There’s no need to mask my frailty
Cause you see the real me

And you love me just as I am

Wonderful, Beautiful is what you see
When you look at me






At 15 you feel like there is nothing to figure out…

30 12 2008

I posted the song and lyrics to Taylor Swift’s song Fifteen. I like it not only because it was done by an inspirational artist but also of the lyrics. I am 15 and I guess that is another reason why I like it. It is being directed to me. It was made for girls of the age of 15.

I can tell you from experience, being 15 is… I don’t know how to explain it. You’ve been through it ( if you haven’t you definately will).

Her song is truth. It is complete truth. I don’t mind going through it, telling you all my favorite lines and lines that are very meaningful.

And when your 15, feeling like there’s nothing to figure out. Count to ten take it in this is life be for you know who your gonna be. That is an amazing and true line. There is nothing to figure out. That’s life. You have no idea who you are going to be in the future at 15. Who am I gonna be? I don’t know. I don’t even know how my life will change after 15.

cause when your 15 and someone tells you the love you you’re gonna believe them. when all you wanted was to be wanted wish you could go back and tell yourself what you know now. At 15, I’m stupid. the moment you feel wanted you turn into the stupidest person. I hate getting to emotionally attached because the moment I get comfortable, I get hurt. But time can heal most anything.so i’ll let time come.

I love the last line of the last chorus. I didn’t know who I was suppose to be at 15. Being 15, it’s like…that’s it you know. There is nothing else to life for you but dating and getting good grades, making friends, losing friends, making enemies. The biggest thing about being a 15 year old young lady is the boy friend part and everyone is like “Oh we must have a boy friend”. Trust me I feel that way sometimes but Ms Swift put it very clearly. We don’t know who we will be. We don’t know who we are suppose to be at 15.

Yeah 15….Someone please give all the 15 year olds you know a wake up call.





Average girl by barlow girl

3 11 2008

“Average Girl”

So what I’m not your average girl
I don’t meet the standards of this world
Chasing after boys is not my thing
See I’m waiting for a wedding ring

No more dating
I’m just waiting
Like sleeping beauty
My prince will come for me
No more dating I’m just waiting
‘Cause God is writing my love story

Boys are bad that’s certainly not true
‘Cause God’s preparing one for you
If you get tired waiting till he comes
Gods arms are the perfect place to run

Sleep that’s the only thing
For me ’cause when I sleep Gods
Preparing one for me





EVERY GOD DAMNED THING I AM NOT

11 10 2008

If you listen to this, you might think it is a love song and that I am going to rant about some guy but I am not. The ,yrics to me are very meaning-ful. If I would have to dedicate it, I would dedicate it to my friends and not a guy.

Angels, specifically Emo and Serenity, I can’t be someone I am not and you keep hitting me when I try to be who I am. What kind of friend does that? Don’t call me childish. Don’t call me insensitive. I hate negative and I block all of it out. I hate it when you’re so negative in the morning, Emo. You might have had a bad day yesterday and may be I did too, but I don’t bring my attitude to school the first thing in the morning. Serenity, stop siding with her. She is over powering both of us and I don’t even know if you notice. I am not going to let any of you over power me or tell me what to do. If you don’t like it, we seriously can;t be friends anymore.

The Veronicas
Everything I’m Not lyrics

Oh no
Don’t go changin’
That’s what you told me from the start
Thought you were somethin’ different
That’s when it all just fell apart
Like your so perfect
And i can’t measure up
Well i’m not perfect
Just all messed up

I was losing myself to somebody else
But now i see
And i don’t wanna pretend
So this is the end of you and me
’cause the girl that you want
She was tearin’ us apart
’cause she’s everything
Everything i’m not

It’s not like i need somebody
Telling me where i should go at night
Don’t worry you’ll find somebody
Someone to tell how to live their life
’cause your so perfect
And no one measures up
Yeah all by yourself
Your all messed up

I was losing myself to somebody else
But now i see
I don’t wanna pretend
So this is the end of you and me
’cause the girl that u want
She was tearin’ us apart
’cause she’s everything
Everything i’m not

Now wait a minute
Because of you
I never knew all of the things that i had
Hey don’t you get it
I’m not going anywhere with you tonight
’cause this is my life

I was losing myself to somebody else
But now i see
(now i see yeah)
I don’t wanna pretend
So this is the end of you and me
(end of you and me)
Cause the girl that you want
(that you want)
She was tearing us apart
Cause she’s everything
Everything i’m not

But now i see
(i don’t wanna)
I don’t wanna pretend
So this is the end of you and me
Cause the girl that you want
She was tearing us apart
Cause she’s everything
Everything i’m not





Yes We Can video-Obama and Will I Am

20 09 2008

This was really great. Very creative and original. Also, this will get Obama’s message across. It was his speech and putting it in a song was really creative.

Here is also another website that you might wanna check out.

Fall for you by Secondhand Serenade

10 08 2008

Why on earth did I get hooked on this song? Its so sad and brings back sad memories; memories that I never wanted to remember. I’ll share it anyway.

Fall For You lyrics

The best thing about tonight’s that we’re not fighting
Could it be that we have been this way before
I know you don’t think that I am trying
I know you’re wearing thin down to the core

But hold your breath
Because tonight will be the night
That I will fall for you
Over again
Don’t make me change my mind
Or I won’t live to see another day
I swear it’s true
Because a girl like you is impossible to find
You’re impossible to find

This is not what I intended
I always swore to you I’d never fall apart
You always thought that I was stronger
I may have failed but I have loved you from the start

Oh, But hold your breath
Because tonight will be the night
That I will fall for you
Over again
Don’t make me change my mind
Or I won’t live to see another day
I swear it’s true
Because a girl like you is impossible to find
It’s impossible
So breathe in so deep
Breathe me in
I’m yours to keep
And hold on to your words
Cause talk is cheap
And remember me tonight
When you’re asleep

Because tonight will be the night
That I will fall for you
Over again
Don’t make me change my mind
Or I won’t live to see another day
I swear it’s true
Because a girl like you is impossible to find

Tonight will be the night
That I will fall for you
Over again
Don’t make me change my mind
Or I won’t live to see another day
I swear it’s true
Because a girl like you is impossible to find
You’re impossible to find
