because i can't sleep til you're next to me

11:08 AM

i was listening to Craig David's Insomnia when
suddenly a flashback of some good old memory came to mind..

it was back in 2003 (March).
i was in U*T*M's bus, on the way to Kuala Kedah from JB.
my first long hours journey with the SRMers for an expedition.
XPDC Kayak Kuala Kedah - Pulau Payar- Pulau Langkawi; to be exact.

i was listening to my walkman (yerp, masa tu saye masih guna walkman eventho most people pakai discman. mp3 player became famous sometime in mid 2003 or something) when suddenly Pak Lah approached me.


PL: Dengar lagu apa?
TTJL: lagu biasa-biasa je..
*sebenarnya macam malas nak layan sebab tengah layan perasaan. hihi*

PL: yer lah. lagu siapa?
TTJL: Craig David (1st album.)
PL: wuiyooo..! dengar Craig Daviddddddddd.
TTJL: *sengih je la*

PL: nak pinjam boleh?
TTJL: huh?
*apehal mamat nih. aku tengah dengar lagu, sibuk pulak dia nak pinjam. haisk*



and i can't remember what happened next. hehe.

see the thing is,
i was the Secretary for that expedition, and pak lah was the program director.
we were supposed to work together,but we were not.
i mean, we worked together. but we didnt talk that much.

weird, isnt it?

sebab dulu saye macam takut sikit dengan PL sebab dia senior. pastu macam garang je. (sebenarnya bukan garang, tapi pendiam. saye tatau nak cakap apa dengan dia. haha)

tapi yang best tu, kitorang SEMUA jadi sangat kamceng, rapat gila like a family start daripada xpdc nih. seminggu kot dekat langkawi. maunya tak rapat..? camping, masak-masak, makan-makan, jalan-jalan (abes sumer verb saye plural kan. haha), semua buat sama-sama. it was fun! lepas tu terus sangkut dengan dorang sampai sekarang. :)


btw, thanks to Craig David, for being the ice breaker for PL and me. hehe.


*and yes. dulu i fell head over heels for Craig David's voice. sekarang pun. suara dia, oh my! cairrrrrr woooo. tapi tak la kronik macam dulu. dulu kronik sebab bila nak tido je mesti sumbat telinga dengar lagu craig david. ngeeee.*



anyway, here is one of my favourite song from Craig David :

Rise and Fall


i love the lyric.
i hope u do too..

enjoy!




Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over,
And it seems as though the writings on the wall,
Superstar you finally made it,
But once your picture becomes tainted,
It's what they call,
The rise and fall (x2)

I always said that I was gonna make it,
Now it's plain for everyone to see,
But this game I'm in don't take no prisoners,
Just casualties,
I know that everything is gonna change,
Even the friends I knew before me go,
But this dream is the life I've been searching for,
Started believing that I was the greatest,
My life was never gonna be the same,
Cause with the money came a different status,
That's when things change,
Now I'm too concerned with all the things I own,
Blinded by all the pretty girls I see,
I'm beginning to lose my integrity

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over,
And it seems as though the writings on the wall,
Superstar you finally made it,
But once your picture becomes tainted,
It's what they call,
The rise and fall

I never used to be a troublemaker,
Now I don't even wanna please the fans,
No autographs,
No interviews,
No pictures,
And less demands,
Given advice that was clearly wrong,
The type that seems to make me feel so right,
But some things you may find can take over your life,
Burnt all my bridges now I've run out of places,
And there's nowhere left for me to turn,
Been caught in comprimising situations,
I should have learnt,
From all those times I didn't walk away,
When I knew that it was best to go,
Is it too late to show you the shape of my heart,

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over,
And it seems as though the writings on the wall,
Superstar you finally made it,
But once your picture becomes tainted,
It's what they call,
The rise and fall

Now I know,
I made mistakes,
Think I don't care,
But you don't realise what this means to me,
So let me have,
Just one more chance,
I'm not the man I used to be,
Used to beeeeeeeeeee

Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over,
And it seems as though the writings on the wall,
Superstar you finally made it,
But once your picture becomes tainted,
It's what they call,
The rise and fall (x4)




note:
hmm. perasan tak,
Rain's How to Avoid The Sun melody tak jauh beza dangan lagu ni? tang gitar tu kot yang lebih kurang sama..
