1. Brandi Carlile – The Story

I simple love this song, the energy and the lyrics.

I was suppose to see her live, but her gig got canceled. Hope to hear this song live soon!

Brandi Carlile – The Story – Lyrics:

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I’ve been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to tell them to
It’s true…I was made for you
I climbed across the mountain tops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But baby I broke them all for you
Because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
You do
I was made for you
You see the smile that’s on my mouth
It’s hiding the words that don’t come out
And all of my friends who think that I’m blessed
They don’t know my head is a mess
No, they don’t know who I really am
And they don’t know what
I’ve been through like you do
And I was made for you…
All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I’ve been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don’t mean anything
When you’ve got no one to tell them to
It’s true…I was made for you

2. Newton Faulkner – Teardrops (Massive Attack Cover)

Everything Newton does is brilliant, I adore this amazingly talented singer.

Saw him live once and it was one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to. I love the words to this song.

Watch the video (taped in Paradiso in Amsterdam, the venue where I also saw him perform):

Newton Faulkner – Teardrops – lyrics:

Love, love is a verb
Love is a doing word
Fearless on my breath
Gentle impulsion
Shakes me, makes me lighter
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on a fire
Fearless on my breath
Water is my eye
Most faithful mirror
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Of a confession
Fearless on my breath
Most faithful mirror
Fearless on my breath
Teardrop on the fire
Fearless on my breath
Ooh ooh ooh
You’re stumbling in the dark
Stumbling in the dark
Ooh ooh ooh

3. Jasper Steverlinck – I Miss You (Randy Newman Cover)

I’ve heard Jasper sing this song many times live and every time he gave me goosebumps.

He sings this song so beautifully.

Jasper Steverlinck – i Miss You – Lyrics:

Still in my heart after all these years
separated by time now by distance
I couldn’t allow myself to feel the loss that I feel right now
you’re far away and happy I know
it’s a little bit late… twenty years or so
it’s a little bit cold for all those concerned
but I’d sell my soul and your soul for a song
so I’ll pour my heart out
I miss you
I miss you, I’m sorry but I do
I want to thank you for the good years
and apologize for the rough ones
you must be laughing yourself sick
but I wanted to write you one before I quit
and this one’s it
I miss you, I wanted you to know
I miss you, and I still love you so.

4. Kevin Richardson – Untitled

This song has no words or lyrics, but the music itself says more than a thousand words.

It tells it’s own story. And yes, it’s a Backstreet Boy!

5. Gavin DeGraw – Belief

I love all of Gavin’s songs, because he writes the most amazing songs, they are like poetry. This one had one of my favorite lyrics:

Gavin DeGraw – Belief – Lyrics:

Belief, makes things real.
Makes things feel, feel alright.
Belief, makes things true.
Things like you, you and I.
Tonight, you arrested my mind.
When you came to my defense.
With a knife in the shape of your mouth,
in the form of your body, with the wrath of a god.
Oh, you stood by me, Belief
Builds from scratch.
Doesn’t have to relax, it doesn’t need space.
Long live the queen and I’ll be the king.
In the collar of grace.
Oh, tonight, you arrested my mind.
When you came to my defense.
With a knife in the shape of your mouth,
in the form of your body, with the wrath of a god.
Oh, you stood by me, belief.
I’m gonna yell it from the rooftops.
I’ll wear a sign on my chest.
That’s the least I can do, it’s the least I can do.
Tonight, you arrested my mind.
When you came to my defense.
With a knife, in the shape of your mouth,
in the form of your body, with the wrath of a god.
Oh, you stood by me.
And I’ll stand by my belief.
I will stand by mine… x2
belief…
like you stood by me, I wil l stand by mine, stand by my belief…
