What a Joy, what a Life, what a Chance! October 28, 2008

So I say
Thank you for the music
The songs I’m singing
Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
Who can live without it?
I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance, what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me

From Mamma Mia! – Thank You for the Music

Slow Me Down February 5, 2008

Filed under: life,music — ayumurti @ 4:46 pm

rushing and racing and running in circles
moving so fast I’m forgetting my purpose
blur of the traffic is sending me spinning
getting nowhere

my head and my heart are colliding chaotic
pace of the world I just wish I could stop it
Try to appear like I’ve got it together
I’m falling apart

save me
somebody take my hand and lead me
slow me down
don’t let love pass me by
just show me how
cause I’m ready to fall

slow me down
don’t let me live a lie
before my life flies by
I need you to slow me down

sometimes I fear that I might disappear
in the blur of fast forward I falter again
forgetting to breathe
I need to sleep
I’m getting nowhere

all that I’ve missed I see in the reflection
pass me while I wasn’t paying attention
tired of rushing, racing and running
I’m falling apart

tell me
oh won’t you take my hand and lead me
slow me down
don’t let love pass me by
just show me how
cause I’m ready to fall

slow me down
don’t let me live a lie
before my life flies by
i need you to slow me down

just show me
i need you to slow me down
slow me down
slow me down

the noise of the world is getting me caught up
chasing the clock and i wish i could stop it
just need to breathe
somebody please
slow me down

This is a song by Emmy Rossum. Yes, Emmy Rossum the actor. She sings and makes album now. This ‘other’ talent could be seen in The Phantom of the Opera (film), a musical drama by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Anyway, I like this song. It reminds me of Imogen Heap‘s songs and the lyric reminds me of the need to slow down (a little bit, hehe). See her music clip here.

2008: New Year. New Hope. New Dream. January 7, 2008

Filed under: life,music — ayumurti @ 9:59 pm

Hey everyone. Happy New Year 2008! Hope this year will be a wonderful one and bright as the sun :)

As for the moment, I enjoy listening this quite old song “Merindukanmu” sung by Minoru.


Jika kau, dengar hatiku,
berbisik memanggil, namamu
Bayangmu seakan menjelma,
nyata, walau jarak memisahkan

Di sini, sendiri jauh darimu
Kulewati, malam sepi menghujam
Tanpamu, kurasakan mati
Tak seperti, saat kau di sisi

Ku merindukanmu..

Ku pandang, senja memerah
Menyimpan kisah, tentang kau dan aku
Berharap, semua ‘kan berlalu
Hingga tiba, waktu ‘kan, kutemukan mu


Di sini, sendiri jauh darimu
Kulewati, malam sepi..
Tanpamu, kurasakan mati
Tanpamu, tak ada gairah
Kau tulis, namamu, di dalam, hatiku
Dan kau ada, di setiap, mimpiku
Ku merindukanmu…

Don’t Stop Me Now June 13, 2007

Filed under: film,me,music — ayumurti @ 5:13 pm

Tonight I’m gonna have myself a real good time
I feel alive
And the world I’ll turn it inside out yeah
I’m floating around in ecstasy
So don’t stop me now
Don’t stop me
’cause I’m having a good time
Having a good time

(Don’t Stop Me Now – QUEEN)

Today is my birthday! The good thing about birthday is when your family and friends whose dear to you could share it with you. Also the good vibe of the day makes me smile all the time since I woke up this morning, err corrected…, since last night :)

Last night I went to see Riri Riza’s newest film 3 Hari Untuk Selamanya at Blitz Jakarta. Before we saw the film, we listened to the live performance of Float, the music group for the film soundtrack. They played good. I know their music since 2005 and really enjoy listening to it. The film was good, especially the script. It was a kind of festival film type, yet we could relate with the story. The story itself is extraordinary for indonesian people since it tells about sex attraction in a straightforward way, beatifully made ofcourse. Ah, I should write a totally different blog entry to review the film, hehe.

Anyway, I spent the first hour of June 13th on the way back home after seeing a good movie, went with good friends, had a good sleep. I plan to have a good time today and I will :)


The Song That Makes My Day At The Moment December 26, 2006

Filed under: music — ayumurti @ 5:19 pm

I really like this song. It recharges me when I’m low :)

You Are Loved (don’t Give Up)Josh Groban

Don’t give up
It’s just the weight of the world
When you’re heart’s heavy
I…I will lift it for you

Don’t give up
Because you want to be heard
If silence keeps you
I…I will break it for you

Everybody wants to be understood
Well I can hear you
Everybody wants to be loved
Don’t give up
Because you are loved

Don’t give up
It’s just the hurt that you hide
When you’re lost inside
I…I will be there to find you

Don’t give up
Because you want to burn bright
If darkness blinds you
I…I will shine to guide you

Everybody wants to be understood
Well I can hear you
Everybody wants to be loved
Don’t give up
Because you are loved

You are loved
Don’t give up
It’s just the weight of the world
Don’t give up
Every one needs to be heard
You are loved
