There’s a new song that I’m addicted to and it’s another heart breaking song.  I don’t know what’s with the sad songs and it usually lures me to liking it.  Maybe, it’s the natural drama that’s functioning.  I actually hate the concept of letting the pain remain if that’s the only way for someone to be with his love again.  I just find it very silly.  So, it may not be the reason.  I’m blaming the drama and I think that’s it.

This new song of Alicia Keys is really heart breaking and it is a song that I can totally relate to with.  You see, I’m someone who isn’t attached to the material world and power.  I’ve always wanted to be grounded.  For me, family and friends come first.  Being a millionaire or rich isn’t a priority.  The concept of properties and investments make me lazy and sleepy.  I find it non-essential.  This is just me.

So when I heard this song, and finally got the chance to read the lyrics, I felt that it is as if this song was meant for me.  This is what I have always believed in.  Yes, I’ve always believed that there’s no more important thing than love.  On the pragmatic side, of course, there’s no contention about that we have to secure for our future but not to the extent that you’d sacrifice everything and especially love.

Without love success is nothing.  You’d just find yourself on the top looking down but unhappy.  Unless if you’re Scrooge.

Anyway, here’s the link of the song and lyrics.  Hope you like it too!

Doesn’t Mean Anything

Used to dream of being a millionaire, without a care
But if I’m seeing my dreams and you aren’t there
’cause it’s over
that just wont be fair
darling,
rather be a poor woman living on the street,
no food to eat,
cause I don’t want nobody if I have to cry.
‘cause it’s over
when you said goodbye!

All at once…
I had it all
but
it doesn’t mean anything
now that you’re gone
from above seems I had it all
but it doesn’t mean anything
since you’re gone

now I see myself through different eyes,
it’s no surprise!
Being alone will make you realize
when it’s over!
All in love is fair I shoulda been there, I shoulda been there, I shoulda shoulda.

all at once…
I had it all
but
it doesn’t mean anything
now that you’re gone
from above seems I had it all
but it doesn’t mean anything
since you’re gone

I know I pushed you away
What can I do that would save our love
Take these material things
They don’t mean nothing
Its you that I want
All at once…
I had it all
But it doesn’t mean anything
Now that you’re gone
From above,
Seems I had it all
But it doesn’t mean anything
since you’re gone

All at once…
I had it all
But it doesn’t mean anything
Now that you’re gone
From above,
Seems I had it all
But it doesn’t mean anything
since you’re gone
