Follow Me

"Follow Me" is the first song where I've written different lyrics for each chorus. Also, I've found writing songs on the piano is helping my piano playing. And from piano class, I know that this song is in the key of F. :]

(click to view)

Wear your heart on your sleeve

or you'll never know

what could be

Say what you wanna see

It's just a locked door

waiting for someone who has the key

Oh whoa

Don't be afraid

You can go your own way

Oh whoa

Finding the light

isn't as hard as it might

seem to be

Just follow me

See what is all around you

There's nothing wrong

with going slow

Don't take who you have for granted

It's easy to do

With one foot forward,

have the other one follow through


Step up to the plate

You can decide your own fate

Oh whoa

Getting it right

feels as good as it should

Like you and me

So take the lead

I don't want to miss out

I won't be the one to regret it

You see, when tomorrow comes

I won't be the one to forget it

Do you think we could finally get it?

Oh whoa

Oh whoa

Oh whoa I've waited so long

Choosing for you would be wrong


Do what you feel

If it doesn't seal the deal

I'll be okay

The truth I can trust

I still need someone to follow me

Follow me, follow me


Follow me

Be with me

Follow me

What are you thankful for?

I'm thankful for my mum sending me this.


What are you thankful for?

'Twas a good day, I'd say.


Friends make things better. As well as a positive attitude. Note to self: keep both of these in my life. always.

There's a month left of school and it's gonna be a busy month. As much as I am excited and eager to graduate, I also want to savor this last month of high school. Unlike many others, I don't plan to go to college. So, this is the end of school- but not the end of my education. Certainly not the end of learning.
There's plenty more of that to come.

I'm looking forward to the near future, but I will do my best to enjoy the simple "carefree" days of high school I have left.

Who knows, maybe I will miss it.

I didn't mean to be anyone's enemy

Tonight's chorus.

--I'd love to tell you that everything's all right. But it's not, so I won't even try. I'd love to assure you that everything will work out fine. But it probably won't, so I won't even lie to you. Cause this thing... what are we even doing? I just don't know if this is the way to go. My conscience is turning into a disease. I didn't mean to be anyone's enemy.

More later of course,

xx K

You seem the same
maybe a little different
Let's start again
or maybe pick up from where we were
So good, so pure
I think I'd like to call you that
In fact, what can leave can also come back.

Cooking day: chicken chow mein!

My brother and I made dinner tonight. :)

This never happens, but it will now. We plan to make dinner every Monday and Wednesday.

It's fun! I felt... all... chef-like.


Today, our first day, we made chicken chow mein. It looks like a pizza because my brother decided to shape it that way. Apparently all of our dishes must be shaped like triangles.

No, I don't find that weird. And yes, I'm okay with it.

I think I shall blog of our culinary successes... and fails, if we have any. :P

Cheers to doing things in life!

What can be lost
can also be found

What can be damaged
can also be restored

What can be rewound
can also be fast forwarded

What we were then
we can be now.


Lonely Lullaby- my favorite song right now

Stumbled upon this just now.

It made me happy and inspired. :)

His new album comes out May 17th. I already have a favorite from the tracks that have been released on YouTube.

Listen. It's my favorite song right now.

It's ridiculously beautiful. It really moves me.

Hooray for Owl City & hooray for artists around the world!

this is where you come in

I've been writing a lot lately. Apparently I have a lot to say.

Tonight- just now- I wrote these lyrics to what could possibly be my first dance song. Weird I know. But, I suppose any song can be turned into a dance song. What, with the right remix; with the right beat. Hah, that's what everyone says about top 40 songs they like. "I don't know, I just like the beat to it."


I try to find an easier way
I try to pick it up where I left
These days there's nothing but heartache
There's nothing left to protect

And I'm trying to find out where you've been
I've been walking the same old path
I'm nothing if not struggling
This is how the other half lives

I'm helpless
This is where you come in (repeated a bunch of times)

I have more, but not finished/good enough to publish.

More to come. I'll probably post more lyrics tomorrow. It's the weekend. I have no homework. I have lots of time. Hurrah. xD

Signing off, K

Stay awake. Don't hesitate to open up your eyes. See the world. Know what it's like to finally realize.

You only get what you put into it and you only see what you see through. Times like this I wish I knew it and times like this I wish I knew you.

I've got time and I've got doubts. I've got room to figure it out. What is to see? What is to be? Find my own philosophy.

You only get what you put into it and you only see what you see through. Times like this I wish I knew it and times like this I wish I knew you.

We don't need to know how far it's supposed to go. We don't need to see. We can make it what we want it to be.

Life's forever changing. It's temporary, so why are we waiting?

You only get what you put into it and you only see what you see through. Times like this I wish I knew it and times like this I wish I knew you.

Back to basics.

Breathe in. Breathe out.

One day, one day. We'll forget this all one day. Just for now we learn to sing. We are not our sorrows. We are not our scars. We are only human. This is what we are.


Music is one thing I actually have figured out in life.

Thought I'd share some pictures of recent gigs with you from last month now- because today is May 1st.

^^ I'm definitely going for a walk or something. It's beautiful.

"And if you were just one day,
you'd be the very first of May
and I'd be sunlight in your skies."

April 9th I played for everyone involved in the TOMS One Day Without Shoes: Barefoot walk in the park. It was nice. They were nice. :)

April 21st was my performance at Off the Grid (music, art and sustainability expo). My whole school walked over to where it was being held and I was very appreciative of how supportive everyone was. Playing in front of your peers can be very nerve racking.

April 17th and 28th I performed for the Liberal Party. I don't have any pictures of the 17th, which I should have because it was much bigger, but the 28th (as seen above) was held in a super fancy hotel downtown. We were on the eighth floor and the view was incredible. From the Parliament building to the ocean- I love where I live. ^^

So, there's a bit of catching up. I have not been idle, even though it may have appeared that way.

Music is something I will always be doing. It's one thing I actually have figured out in life. For me, it is constant. It's reliable. Everyone needs something like that.

Well, it's past noon on my last day of the weekend. I have things to do, so I'll write later.

Much love & appreciation,
