I just recently became a fan of The Script when I had the chance to listen to their debut album and when I learned that they’ll be coming out with the 2nd album I made sure that I’d be one of the 1st to get a copy of it.

The album with the same track Science and Faith is a good follow up album.  I like the message of the song.  Love like Faith is something that Science can’t explain.  The majority of the songs in the album are talking about struggles of love, lost love, love under construction, love being questioned and moving on.

And in this post I’d first talk about their carrier single, “For the First Time”.  It tells about the story of couple’s struggle to fight and make things work.  It’s truly one of the hardest times when you try your best but it is as if you’re back at one.  Trying your hardest not to give up while you are settling your differences.

I don’t exactly know why I liked the song maybe because I can relate to it or maybe I’m just agreeing about the sentiments?  You see I have always believed that when you’re in a relationship you try your best to make things work.  There’s no such thing as perfect relationship.  In fact, I find it shallow and untrue when I hear stories about love without any conflicts.  Not only because I believe that conflicts and struggle adds up to maturity and growth but I just couldn’t accept the fact that they’re too lucky not to have one.   Or maybe they’re just fooling each other (insert sarcasm here).

Anyway that’s not the point I want to say.  My view on this is, when you are in a cross roads like this you should exhaust everything and fight for it together because that’s the point of being in a relationship.  When one party starts to give up and let go then it’ll be the start of your relationship’s end.  Both parties have to be open in any given time and it should be clear.  That’s how it works at least in my very idealistic point of view.

Yes it may be hard and you might feel like you’re doing everything for the first time again but did anyone ever tell us that love is easy?  I guess nobody told us that so this shouldn’t stop us from making it look like we can’t do and solve it.  Just make sure you have the time and you both are willing to fight for the love then I guess everything should work at least for both parties.

Okay enough of my senseless thoughts for now I’m ending this post by posting the video of the song and I’ll just post another entry about the other songs from the album when I have time.  Don’t forget to check the album out.

I’ve always loved Duncan Sheik’s For You since he released the album “Daylight”.  This is my “Please marry me song”.  If I’ll have my significant other sing this to me, I won’t say no to it.  I may sound weird but I tag the songs that I like.  In fact, I used to love break up songs.  I’d imagine myself listening to these songs while crying over break ups.  But those were the days; I prefer listening to bitter songs nowadays. Just kidding!

Then a friend suggested me the song “I’m yours” by The Script.  It took me months before I’ve checked it out even if I already have the song all along.  I just wasn’t expecting that the group would come up with a song like that.  Then I finally had my lazy bones listen to the song and VOILA! The song really moved me.  Moral of the story: “When someone suggests you a song listen to it first”.

Listening to it made me think when will this time come (again) for me?  When will someone just tell me that he’s mine?  I’m really complicated and I’m the kind who’d easily falter when I find inconsistencies.  At times, I think I’m not even meant to have a relationship with someone.  I need someone who’d control me and give me assurance of their love especially when I don’t feel as much as I’m expecting to.  That’s why this song moved me, its sentiment and how it was sung was just perfect.  It melted my heart.  It made me hope for that day to come again when someone’s going to give me reassurance of thy love.  Though, honestly I don’t think I’m ready for one.  It’s just too soon.

Anyway, I’m attaching two YouTube links the first is a live version and the second one is the album version.  Enjoy and let me know what you think of the song.


Last night I accidentally dozed off early and needless to say it was expected that I’d wake up early today.  With that I decided to run since I really need to be fit and ready for a marathon as I plan to join one this year.  I actually slacked off and chatted online with a friend then I saw the sunshine from my window and was convinced to go out and chase the sun.

I immediately grabbed my shorts and looked for a pair of socks and put on my running shoes and brushed my teeth.  I went outside as my brother gave me puzzled look and I’m sure he was asking himself what has gotten into me and why I am awake early.

I made a playlist of Kelly Clarkson, Sara Bareilles, The Script and Train songs to perk me up while I’m running.  I’ve decided to go back with this routine on weekends at least.  Thinking of the things I have enjoyed before and sorting it out on my mind so I’d embrace it back in my life.

As I was doing the usual training, I started with 5 minutes of walking as preparatory to the alternates of 90-second walk and 60-second run for at least 45 minutes.  I skipped thru tracks one after the other until I find one that I liked.  Then voila I came across The Script’s Before the Worst and listened to it for more than once.

The song struck me and made me think.  The song explains what I actually want.  I want a closure to everything before anything else, before I actually start moving on.  I usually end up friends with my exs well that’s the dream at least and that has been with all of them.  (Well, I don’t have actually lots of them)  I don’t want to run into them feeling awkward.  It’s like a damage control.  I don’t want us to end up hurting each other in the long run.  I hate fights, I hate “parinigs” besides I am the kind of person who can handle things and I’d rather take it directly.  I’m not a mind reader and I believe that cooler heads prevail and win.

I don’t actually know if I have matured through time or is it because I’m also tired of it.  When I decided to run again, I told myself that I’d go back to the old routine.  After hearing this song and learning about it, I begin to ask myself… Is being heart broken and moving on part of the routine?  I hope not.

It’s been a while since the two of us talked
About a week since the day that you walked
Knowing things would never be the same
With your empty heart and mine full of pain

So explain to me how it came to this
Take it back to the night we kissed
It was Dublin city on a Friday night
With vodkas and coke, I was getting insomniac

We were sitting with our backs against the world
Saying things that we thought but never heard
Oh, who would’ve thought it would end up like this

But everything we talked about is gone
And the only chance we have of moving on
Was trying to take it back before it all went wrong

Before the worst, before we met
Before our hearts decided it’s time to love again
Before too late, before too long
Let’s try and take it back before it all went wrong

There was a time that we’d stay up all night
Best friends, yeah talking ’til the daylight
Took the joys alongside the pain
With not much to lose but so much to gain

Are you hearing me? ‘Cause I don’t wanna miss
That you would drift on memory bliss
It was Grafton street on a rainy night
I was down on one knee and you were mine for life

We were thinking we would never be apart
With your name tattooed across my heart
Oh, who would’ve thought it would end up like this

But everything we talked about is gone
And the only chance we have of moving on
Was trying to take it back before it all went wrong

Before the worst, before we met
Before our hearts decided it’s time to love again
Before too late, before too long
Let’s try and take it back before it all went wrong

If the clouds don’t clear
Then we’ll rise above it, we’ll rise above it
Heaven’s gate is so near, come walk with me through
Just like we used to, just like we used to, yeah, yeah

Let’s take it back before it all went wrong

Before the worst, before we met
Before our hearts decide it’s time to love again
Before too late, before too long
Let’s try to take it back before it all went wrong
Let’s try and take it back before it all went wrong
