Lyrical

Lyrics

Hello wonderful people! Welcome to my blog. Today I would like to share one of my favorite songs by the singer/songwriter Bruno Mars. It’s called “When I Was Your Man” and it’s one of those songs that grip your heart, not just with its melody,  but with the lyrics as well. It’s a romantic and dulcet soul/pop piano ballad about a pre-fame heartbreak. Most of us have that one man or woman we let get away. He regrets the way he treated her and sincerely wishes that her new man treat her the way she deserves to be treated. Well, read the lyrics, which is poetry set to music (my opinion), and then listen and watch Bruno’s performance. If you’re not sitting dreamy thinking of a lost love by the end of this, then I don’t know what to tell you. ;D  Enjoy!

“When I Was Your Man”

Same bed but it feels just a little bit bigger now
Our song on the radio but it don’t sound the same
When our friends talk about you, all it does is just tear me down
‘Cause my heart breaks a little when I hear your name

It all just sounds like oooooh…
Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should’ve bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should’ve gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party
‘Cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby’s dancing
But she’s dancing with another man

My pride, my ego, my needs, and my selfish ways
Caused a good strong woman like you to walk out my life
Now I never, never get to clean up the mess I made, ohh…
And it haunts me every time I close my eyes

It all just sounds like oooooh…
Mmm, too young, too dumb to realize
That I should’ve have bought you flowers
And held your hand
Should’ve gave you all my hours
When I had the chance
Take you to every party
‘Cause all you wanted to do was dance
Now my baby’s dancing
But she’s dancing with another man

Although it hurts
I’ll be the first to say that I was wrong
Oh, I know I’m probably much too late
To try and apologize for my mistakes
But I just want you to know

I hope he buys you flowers
I hope he holds your hand
Give you all his hours
When he has the chance
Take you to every party
‘Cause I remember how much you loved to dance
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man
Do all the things I should have done
When I was your man

Happiness Is A Thing To Be Practiced, Like A Violin.

Happiness Is A Thing To Be Practiced, Like A Violin.

David Garrett

Hello! Welcome to my blog. I love art, creativity and beauty, and I know these come in many forms. In this post I would like to introduce to you a record-breaking German classical and crossover violinist and recording artist David Garrett.

He gets his first violin at age four and makes his first appearance with the Hamburg Philharmonics at the early age of ten. At age thirteen he is the youngest artist to be awarded an exclusive contract with the Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft. In 1999, at the height of his career, the shooting star redirects his energy, deciding to leave his predetermined path as a classical violinist and move to New York – not to take a time-out but rather to place his musical proficiency on a theoretical foundation and perfect his technique. He enrolls at the prestigious Julliard School, studying musicology and composition.

Instruction with Itzhak Perlmann lends his performance completely new facets. David Garrett’s particular enthusiasm for studying composition earns him a distinction in 2003 when he wins the renowned Composition Competition of Julliard School with a fugue composed in the style of Johann Sebastian Bach. In doing so, he lays the foundation for what have become legendary arrangements. His highly esteemed American composition teacher Eric Ewazen has said of him “As a violinist, his spectacular, heartfelt and expressive playing already dazzled – even when he was a student – those of us who had the great pleasure of teaching him, and we recognized his extraordinary gifts and his amazing talent.”  http://david-garrett.com/us/about/

David Garrett’s personality and sex appeal is only surpassed by his talent.

5. What is your sweetest memory? My sweetest memory is of  my niece Vanessa when she was almost a year old. We were involved in a fender bender, and terrified that she could be hurt I carried her, and began to weep. She looked at me with this look of compassion and sweetness (yes, compassion) and placed her little hand on my face and smiled. It was like a miracle for a baby to behave this way. Her gesture completely calmed me because I knew she was okay.
