some cool songs, sad songs, lovely songs...

i was browsing youtube the other day when i came across this song by miley cyrus. i'm not a big fan of her but i decided to give it a try anyway. and hey! apparently the song's not bad at all. and i really love the father-child atmosphere she and her dad projects, like the "close-but-not-so-much-a-daddy's-little-girl" kind of aura. Here, take a look at the video, wait for 3:08 till it ends, and you'll get what i mean. :)

Butterfly Fly Away- Miley Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus

Butterfly Fly Away lyrics
Songwriters: Ballard, Glen; Silvestri, Alan;

You tucked me in, turned out the light

Kept me safe and sound at night

Little girls depend on things like that

Brushed my teeth and combed my hair

Had to drive me everywhere

You were always there when I looked back

You had to do it all alone

Make a living, make a home

Must have been as hard as it could be

And when I couldn't sleep at night

Scared things wouldn't turn out right

You would hold my hand and sing to me

Caterpillar in the tree

How you wonder who you'll be

Can't go far but you can always dream

Wish you may and wish you might

Don't you worry, hold on tight

I promise you there will come a day

Butterfly fly away

Butterfly fly away, butterfly fly away

Flap your wings now you can't stay

Take those dreams and make them all come true

Butterfly fly away, butterfly fly away

We've been waiting for this day

All along and knowing just what to do

Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly, butterfly fly away

Butterfly fly away

Butterfly fly away

Anyway, this song invoked a really sad feeling inside me, that sad feeling where you just realise how much you really miss your family back home. and how unfortunate it is for you to have missed all the good times you could have instead spent together with them. and so an accidental tear glide its way down my cheek when i was on the bus the other day. gaahhh
glad i was traveling by myself that night! haha

oh and for a more obvious comparison for why it truly is a "butterfly fly away" case, you can compare how Billy was giving much more assurance to little Miley in this video, as compared to the previous one. hee hee i kind of love this pair really.

I also find this guy called "sam tsui" quite lovely, his voice that is more suitably, which is so lovely. here here watch one or two videos of this talented, sweet looking boy. oh dear make me want to sing along so..

~wish me luck for my prelims, I'm gonna ace them all. YAY!!
