Heaven Knows

Does anyone remember this song back in the day?
I think I just started college...



Only Heaven Knows
(Sung by Rick Price)

She's always on my mind,
from the time I wake up
'till I close my eyes
she's everywhere I go
she's all I know

though she's so far away
it just keeps getting stronger
every day
and even now she's gone
I'm still holding on

so tell me where do I start
'cause it's breaking my heart
don't wanna let her go

chorus:
maybe my love will come back some day
only heaven knows
and maybe our hearts will find their way
only heaven knows
and all I can do is hope and pray
'cause heaven knows

my friends keep telling me
that if you really love her
you've gotta set her free
and if she returns in kind
I'll know she's mine

so tell me where do I start
'cause it's breaking my heart
don't wanna let her go

chorus

why I live in despair
'cause wide awake or dreaming
I know she's never there
and all this time I act so brave
I'm shaking inside
why does it hurt me so...

chorus

'cause heaven knows...

yeap;) kindergarden...or std 1...i'm not quite sure but i entered std 1 in 1993..so yea.. this song is a oldie but goodie;) hehe! Sir, i think theres a better song 2 recommened 2 azie, "love hurts" by Incubus;

"Love hurts
Sometimes it's a good hurt
And it feels like I'm alive
Love sings
When it transcends to memories
I want to chime in
'Cause without love I won't survive"

Man... i love incubus!!

Love hurts:(

"that if you really love her
you've gotta set her free
and if she returns in kind
I'll know she's mine"

I think that's true. If she comes back to you, she's yours 4ever:)

love makes me sad, yes but love also makes me happy and i think happy moments are more important. =)
Abdullah said…
Princess,
Truer words yo cannot find...

Ijat,
If it weren't for the happy moments I think we'd all go insane... but then again... it's always these happy moments that hurt the most when you want to make a clean break, dont u think? They chain you to the other person... and if you're not strong enough, soon all the bad moments would be nothing but distant memories, and you only remember the good times... and sooner that u know know it, ur back with the person again... It's a vicious cycle, just waiting to be repeated...

Been there done that :)
missyizzati said…

My first fast food experience ever

Growing up in the UK in the late 70s and 80s, it was almost impossible to get fast food that was halal. Definitely not like what it is today.

Back in the day, we lived in many different places when I was growing up, but I consider Bath to be my where I struck my roots.

As a kid you don’t really remember many things that were not within your immediate scope of experience. Everything was taken care of by your parents, and that is something I have go to remember again with my own children. Sometimes I expect them to be aware more of what is going on around them, but when I remember my own childhood, all we knew was we did what our parents told us, moved where they moved, went where they went etc.

Anyway, I’m rambling.

Back to what I was saying, It was literally impossible to get fast food, and all we could do was just imagine how the burgers would taste. Fries or chips was not too much of an issue because we were able to eat Fish and Chips, especially from Evans in the middle of town af…

Aku, Bini dan Ginger Beer

Aku haus...

Tekakku yang kering ini menginginkan rasanya yang menenangkan jiwa itu...

Perasaannya apabila ku menggenggam botol kacanya yang sejuk dan berwap-wap dan mengangkatnya keluar peti ais kecilku, perasaannya seperti seorang kanak-kanak Taman Keramat memegang aiskrim Malaysia 10sen pada hari yang panas membara...

Riang... Nikmat... Penantian yang menyiksakan, tetapi penantian yang lazat...

Dengan pergerakan yang perlahan seperti 'slow-motion' dalam sinetron Indonesia kegemaran surirumah-surirumah di Malaysia, muncung botol Ginger Beer kegemaranku mampir bibirku yang terketar-ketar sedikit, sehinggalah aku dapat rasa cecair yang sejuk membasahi tekakku...

Nikmat...

Sedap tidak terperi...

Aku menghulurkan kepada biniku, dan dia juga meneguk kenikmatan...

Aku menadah tangan meminta kembali Ginger Beer kesayanganku yang berjenama Bundaberg buatan New Zealand.

Saat itu tidak tiba-tiba...

Aku tertanya-tanya... Mata terkebil-kebil...

"Ni saya punya ya Bang..." ujar …

The Ones That Got Away : The sign

I couldn't believe it!

I actually managed to pass my Chemistry Finals!!! All the blood, sweat and tears that went into trying to understand my most hated subject finally paid off...
I held the result slip in my hand, not daring to let go... As if letting go would mean that I would let go of the pass that I had obtained.

I smiled.

We both knew we would finally be where we dreamed of the entire time we were in school... University. That magical place where dreams would be made into reality. That place where we could become all that we wanted to become... To start our journeys into adulthood, into the real world.

And so when we got our offer letters, it was with mixed feelings that I said goodbye to her... Part of me was sad because it meant going our separate ways, but part of me was excited to start a new chapter in my life... I guess it didn't make a difference back then, because I knew that in my heart of hearts, we would be together in the end, no matter how long or winding the r…
