At Last - Etta James
lyrics
At last
My love has come along
My lonely days over
And life is like a song

Ooh Yeah, Yeah, At last
The skies above are blue
My heart was wrapped up in clover
The night I looked at you


I found a dream
That I could speak to
A dream that I can call my own
I found a thrill
To press my cheek to

A thrill that I have never known

You smile
You smile
Oh and then the spell was cast
And here we are in heaven
For you are mine at last


Song: Hi ya ya
Artist: TVXQ

Hi Ya Ya Summer Day


Beautiful ocean bright
Just you and I
In your eyes
I can feel heavenly paradise
Don't be afraid of what you feel inside
That's ok you don't have to cry yourself
I'll give you word only one love
You know no one can make one happy as the way you do
Baby that's the true love (my love)
As always I'm here baby this is our world, Yeah

Under the bright sun,
It's just the two us (two of us)
With a small bag,
Let's go away together (go away)


Beyond the window of the the racing car,
The blue ocean is wide open (near me)
By my side, you've already fallen asleep like an angel.

*Dancing in summer paradise,
I love you, Hi ya ya ya
Always remember our memories in the summer.
We'll have to act quickly,
So it may be awkward.
I love you, forever come with me.

Over the white sand,
You're walking towards me (towards me)
Your image is blinding,
So I can't look at you right away (with you)

While we walk together,
Feeling the breeze (see my smile)
I'm worried you'll hear my heart racing
Till the end of time...

*Repeat

Even after ten years pass, your exact features
Will always be with me without a change.
I hope they will, till the end of time...

Always be happy together,
I love you Hi ya ya ya
The endless skies will congratulate us


*Repeat

Love Lockdown - Kanye West

lyrics

I’m not lovin' you
Way I wanted to
What I had to do
Had to run from you
I’m in love with you
But the vibe is wrong
And that haunted me all the way home


So you never know
Never, never know
Never know enough
Til it’s over love
Til we lose control
System overload
Screamin’ no, no, no, no, no

I’m not lovin' you
Way I wanted to
See I want to move
But can’t escape from you
So I keep it low
Keep a secret code
So everybody else don’t have to know

So keep your love locked down
Your love locked down
Keepin’ your love locked down
Your love locked down
Now keep your love locked down
Your love locked down
Now keep your love locked down
You lose


I’m not lovin’ you
Way I wanted to
I can’t keep my cool
So I keep it true
I got something to lose
So I gotta move
I can’t keep myself
And still keep you too

So I keep in mind
When I’m on my own
Somewhere far from home
In the danger zone
How many times did I tell you
‘fore it finally got through
You lose, you lose

I’m not lovin’ you
Way I wanted to
See I had to go
See I had to move
No more wasting time
You can’t wait for life
We’re just racing time
Where’s the finish line


So keep your love locked down
Your love locked down
Keepin’ your love locked down
Your love locked down
Now keep your love locked down
Your love locked down
Now keep your love locked down
You lose

I’m not lovin’ you
Way I wanted to
I bet no one knew
I got no one new
No, I said I’m through
But got love for you
But I’m not lovin’ you
Way I wanted to

Gotta keep it going
Keep the lovin’ going
Keep it on a roll
Only god knows
If I’ll be with you
Baby I’m confused
You choose, you choose


I’m not lovin’ you
Way I wanted to
Where I want to go
I don’t need you
I’ve been down this road
Too many times before
I’m not lovin’ you
Way I wanted to

So keep your love locked down
Your love locked down
Keepin’ your love locked down
Your love locked down
Now keep your love locked down
Your love locked down
Now keep your love locked down
You lose

You lose
You lose
You lose
You lose
