what about now, what about today?

Shadows fill an empty heart
As love is fading,
From all the things that we are
But are not saying.
Can we see beyond the scars
And make it to the dawn?

Change the colors of the sky.
And open up to
The ways you made me feel alive,
The ways I loved you.
For all the things that never died,
To make it through the night,
Love will find you.

What about now?
What about today?
What if you're making me all that I was meant to be?
What if our love never went away?
What if it's lost behind words we could never find?
Baby, before it's too late,
What about now?

this song by chris daughtry cant stop playing in my head... i am on leave today. stay at home and got the chance to watch this song's video clip for the first time in astro. it was shown for a number of times this morning. i shed tears watching it. it really touched my heart. very very inspirational. please you tube it ! (and you tube has become a verse nowadays.. he he )

if only the rest of the world can see it, can understand the message. if everyone of us could think the same, to make this world a happy place to live in, we will be free from poverty, corruption, killings, war..........

someone is hungry
someone is hurting
someone is homeless
that someone could be you!

i read in the net that the man trying to stop the tank from entering Tiananmen Square in the video is a Chinese student participating in the student protests in Beijing in 1989. it was rumoured that he was executed, after secret police dragged him into the crowds. The tanks reportedly ran over the students under their tracks and Armoured Personnel Carriers fired upon them with AK-47's.

what an incredible song and video clip! whoever did them has a heart of gold. the great thing about music is that it is able to change how you feel about things, people, and life in general. yes, a song can mean different things to different people.

again, please you tube it..... hope that "What About Now" will touch our souls at many different levels. thank God for the organizations and individuals that have an innate desire to truly make this world a better place as shown in the video clip..

Yes,a song can mean many things to different people and that's why music is universal.You're quite a sentimentalist at heart.The love that never went away is love meant to be.Just cracking my head for the hidden message in this song hehe..
