"please don't go" by barcelona

all those arrows you threw, you threw them away
you kept falling in love and then one day
when you fell, you fell towards me
when you crashed in the clouds, you found me

oh, please don't go...
i want you so
i can't let go
for i lose control

get these left handed lovers out of your way
they look hopeful but you, you should not stay
if you want me to break down and give you the keys
i can do that but i can't let you leave

oh, please don't go...
i want you so
i can't let go
for i lose control

this is my LSS of the moment. i saw a video of the 2nd largest aquarium tank in the world in chico garcia's blog and this was the background music. but i opted to post a different version of that video because i think the sound quality is better.

i don't remember if i ever heard this song before, but i was mesmerized hearing it while watching those sea creatures marvelously swimming their way around a tank, sadly though. they are supposed to be wandering free in the ocean, not encased in glass for our amusement. it made me realize that i should really learn how to dive. so, that will be in my "things to do before i die" list, which also reminded me that i should really make that list. not that am dying though, i just want to make the most out of this lifetime. i believe that there are certain things that we should experience even just once in our lives.

i tried to find an mtv of the song, but sadly i cant find one. there was a live version, but the sound isn't really as nice as the one used in that aquarium video. but to put a face on a great song, there's this video response of the band itself, barcelona, that i found.

i haven't heard the other songs of barcelona. i plan to buy their album soon to find out if their other songs are as good as this one or i hope even better. what makes this song good, for me, is that even if it's short and simple, it's also kinda deep and poetic. nice words coupled with a dramatic melody incite the necessary emotions. oo na, emo na nga kung emo... e basta gusto ko sya! ;p

and yet, another video. this time it's a collection of film clips with the same song as background.

o sha, magpaka-emo...
