I could not remember the reason why I wrote this article below with a title that says  “A Different Kind Of High”. I discovered this just today while I was browsing through the draft section of my blog. I’ve got tons of unpublished articles written months and even years ago. Some of these articles are unfinished, some are nonsense, some are too personal, and others are the result of my emotions at that very moment which I need to express in writing. As what Lord Byron said, “If I don’t write to empty my mind, I go mad.”



I’m wide awake and I’m high. I get sick and tired and yet I’m high. I sit still and I am still high. What kind of high is this which drowns me deeper into an ocean of thoughts? These thoughts are way too overwhelming that throws me further into thinking deeper– some are unexplained, some are brought about my past, and mostly brought about by the present events that occur in my life. And that even while I am speaking my mind right at this moment, my thoughts are running crazy. I can barely put the exact words I need and want to say.

I am high on thoughts all the time and it gives me a different kind of high. It’s in my mind and it’s within my system. How do I get rid of this high? I am completely overdosed and I pretty much sigh.


Music, Voice, and Emotions…

Two of the most talented singers and songwriters whose songs I listen to over and over again are Regina Spektor and James Blunt. Regina’s compositions are simply extraordinary and unconventional. The lyrics of her songs are products of her imagination and creativity. Sometimes, you need to understand what she’s trying to convey through her songs because it’s filled with metaphors. For me, she’s a genius. I love all of her songs, but of course, there are those songs which I listen to most of the time. First on the list is SAMSON. The first time I heard this song, I instantly fell in love with it. Another fave of mine are EET, FIDELITY, and US.


You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth
I have to go, I have to go
Your hairwas long when we first metSamson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
He ate a slice of wonder bread and went right back to bed
And history books forgot about us and the bible didn’t mention us
And the bible didn’t mention us, not even onceYou are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the stars came fallin’ on our heads
But they’re just old light, they’re just old light
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson came to my bed
Told me that my hair was red
Told me I was beautiful and came into my bed
Oh I cut his hair myself one night
A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light
And he told me that I’d done alright
And kissed me ’til the mornin’ light, the mornin’ light
And he kissed me ’til the mornin’ light

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of wonderbread and went right back to bed
Oh, we couldn’t bring the columns down
Yeah we couldn’t destroy a single one
And history books forgot about us
And the bible didn’t mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first

And of course, another favorite song-writer of mine is James Blunt. If you listen to him sing, you will really feel the emotions being poured out through his songs. His lyrics touches your heart and his voice captivates your soul, and that’s how I describe my mood every time I listen to his music. Sometimes, I can’t help but play the same song over and over again before I shift to another song.

Here are my top 3 favorite songs by James Blunt:

1. Goodbye my Lover

2. You’re Beautiful

3. Same Mistake

So, hope you’ll also enjoy and love their songs like I do. I really think they are amazing singers and songwriters.
