My Dreams are MINE

3 05 2009

“You four are not here to live out my dreams for me. I’ve had my dreams, and some of them have come true and some of them haven’t. But they’ve been my dreams. You have to have your own. Have them, cherish them and never let go of them. Do something you love. Whoever was the fool who decided that we should work for six days and rest for one? But if you’re doing something you love, you’ll be okay.”

Amazing people with amazing talent.. still so humble..

cynical pple, scorning, rolling eyes… yes we are like that … we judge by appearance.. what we neglect is the beauty inner….

My eyes got misty and something got touched in my chest…  And plus the song is about dream…. I think Jo will love Susan’s singing as well.. =)

When Susan walked on to the Britain’s Got Talent 2009 stage, the judges and audience seemed more interested in her appearance than her voice.

Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden rolled their eyes and raised their eyebrows when she told them she wanted to be a Broadway superstar like Elaine Paige.

But their scorn quickly turned to amazement when she started to sing.

Simon grinned as he admitted that Susan’s voice was “extraordinary”. Piers told her: “I am giving you the biggest ‘yes’ I have ever given to anybody.”

And Amanda added: “It was a privilege to listen to you.”

Susan Boyle

47 Year old Susan Boyle wows the judges with her performance in the auditions for Britains Got Talent, singing I dreamed a dream from Les Miserables. The audience were on their feet and cheering by the time Susan had finished singing. The unassuming, currently unemployed lady from West Lothian near Edinburgh had looked shy and a little out of place as she stepped on stage.

Watch her performance here, lyrics below..

“I dreamed a dream” from Les Miserables

I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high,
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving.

Then I was young and unafraid
When dreams were made and used,
And wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung,
No wine untasted.

But the tigers come at night
With their voices soft as thunder
As they tear your hopes apart
As they turn your dreams to shame.

And still I dream he’ll come to me
And we will live our lives together
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms
We cannot weather…

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I’m living
So different now from what it seems
Now life has killed
The dream I dreamed.

Chasing Pavement

27 02 2009

Nothing in particular.. just thought wanna share this post when I read from his blog…

Should i give up, Or should i just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere, Or would it be a waste?
Even If i knew my place should i leave it there?

Should i give up,
Or should i just keep chasing pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere
