As Long As You Love Me - Voice Cover by Khairul Asyraf/ Piano Cover by Yasmin



Gotto admit, the beat to the recent Bieber song is quite catchy.  
And so, Khairul Asyraf and I decided to give it a lil' twist and made a cover of our own.  
There's a timing slip in the middle, but oh well haha.. Enjoy! :)

We're Made to Float in Deep Waters


It was during that one swimming session I had in Winter,
when the chills that ran down my spine were not caused by the icy waters,
but by the words that came from the mouth of the instructor,
telling me to swim in the deep end of 12 meters.

From the shallow end i could see it glaring in the darkest blue,
Staring back at me like it'll devour me,
that it churned my bladder to pee,
I could hear my heart screaming for the loo.

Like horror movies these thoughts were playing at the back of my mind
The thought of me sinking,
the thought of bitter chlorinated water flooding my fragile lungs,
like The Niagara hitting a lost boat with no mercy of any kind.

Worried, scared, nervous, you name it,
troubled, distracted, demotivated, exhausted,
You name it and i'd experienced it.
I'd experienced it all,
and even before i began,
i've already felt the downfall.
Fearing it like it was to really happen,
Fearing it like doomnation was what's destined.

From the shallow end i could see my nightmares waiting for me straight ahead,
So I panicked and search for comfort and at that time the coach instructor was the only one i had.
I told him, "Sir, Sir, I'm worried and scared.
What if everything turns really really bad?"

My coach chuckled, smiled, and grip my shoulders,
With his italian accent he spoke of words that matter,
It felt like I was Michael Corleone and he was the Godfather.

He said,"Dyaasemin, 
we humans were created to float in deep waters.
All you gotto to do is relax and stay focus.
It may be 12 meters under, but there's a gazzilion meters more of air above us.
And it dont matter if you're in a depth of 4 or 12 meters,
the surface is always of the same level and thats the level you'll be swimming,
coz we're created to float in deep waters."

What he said was all a blabber,
A confused 11 year old child i became,
my worries worsened.
But what stuck was that we'll float in deep waters,
So i pushed off from the banks of the pool
and trusted his words for i have options of no other.

I swam like nobody's business,
My mind wanted to play scenes of great white sharks,
Ghouls and ghosts of the sea,
Alligators,
Pirahnas, 
But sir told me to focus,
and so i sentenced them thoughts in exile,
and focused on whats happening.

1, 2, breathe..
1, 2, breathe..
I kept telling myself to 1, 2, breathe..
1, 2, the bluish colour of the water is so pretty, breathe,
1, 2, i'm a beautiful mermaid, breathe,
1, 2, uu i can see my shadow on the pool floor, following me, breathe.

And before you know it, I was actually having fun, breathe.
And before you know it, I've reached to the other end, breathe.
At the age of 11 was when all this happened,
and it took 12 years after to realise the greater meaning of this whole incident.

We are often scared of the deep waters,
of Great White overdued bills sharking our eyeballs in bold red ink,
of intimidating expectations haunting our dreams and free will,
of nasty snapping alligators that could snap our limbs in the name of betrayal and lies,
of this thing we call love, that may seem everything lovely in our eyes,
but once shattered would create shards as sharp as the teeth of pirahnas,
tearing our hearts into unmended pieces of a vendetta.

We are often scared of the deep waters,
worried by the what ifs,
distracted by pain and anger,
that we tie these burden on to our ankles,
And so we submerge ourselves into torturing depths,
with our arms waving hard above our heads,
waving to reach for the surface,
the light above would only seem like a tiny dot of unpromised hope,
that it haunts us with thoughts of merry-ness and a comforting home.
And with the last bit of air we have left in our lungs,
our unfocused mind choose to panic and rant,
trying to understand this animosity and excruciating pant,
thinking that that would help when it wouldn't,
we're too focused on the motion of submerging,
too focused on sinking,
that we forget.

We forget that God has prepared us with everything that we need,
We forget that we're made to float in deep waters,
and all we have to do is relax and focus.
Keep counting the steps to the top,
appreciating what each level would offer,
coz trust me it'll make your heart hop.
Hop with joy and gratefulness,
that without you knowing it, you've breach the tip of the surface.
And thats when you break free with a wide smile on your face,
taking your breath of fresh air like it was your first.
And if it wasn't for these deep waters,
this sudden joy we feel will never be ours.
So be patient when you're going thru it.
For at the end of the day,
we know we're made to float in deep waters,

and together,
we will float in deep waters.

Serene - An original piano composition by Me :D



Its been ages, i know.  Truth be told, i was just not inspired to play anything on the piano.  Everything sounded wrong whenever i play, and it was that way for the past 2 3 months.  There was even a moment where i thought i've lost it, until i was inspired again recently :)  And so this piece is the first decent thing that happened after all that, the light at the end of that dark tunnel i'd say :P  And after listening to it, i decided to name it 'Serene' coz basically thats how it made me feel throughout the whole song.  I've added recent photos of my Europe trip along with it to share what inspired me mostly that made this happen :)  Enjoy!

The Heart





The heart.
The heart is one complicated organ I tell you,
One that gives life to the rest,
as it delivers essential needs so the rest can be at its best.

And its beats signal life,

as it goes lub dub,

lub dub,
lub dub...


Stop.

Stop heart, enough,
Stop from beating for once,
For as long as you pump blood through these veins,
You're making me feel all these excruciating pain.

By your first beat you made me cry my lungs out,
As i entered the world making mama all worn out,
And after 23 years you're still at it again,
Making me feel pain, pain, and pain on repeat without a bend.

You make me feel pain as i look at my people,
Desperate for the world uptil they're willing to hurt other people,
They betray, they lie, they steal, they stab,
I dont wanna raise my child in a world that's gone mad.

You make me feel pain as i look at myself,
Getting knocked down again and again with a hand hanging by a shelf,
Yet im still trying to climb up and reach for the sky,
Even though pain has poked both of my eyes.

Heart, you make me feel torn in confusion,
And create uncertainties and delusions,
Have i not been nice to you heart?
Why are you being so damn fuckin hard?

They say breathe Yasmin and calm down,
But couldn't they see the more i breathe the closer i get myself to the ground?
So if thats where i'm going, might as well i just go there now?
Saves time, saves space, don't you think so, pal?

These feelings you've created,
They're like countless of hurricanes tearing my insides as they all mustered,
Mustered into toxic paste contained in a jar,
A jar of explosives that can win a world war.

But perhaps,
......
Just perhaps,
.......................
to win a war,
that is why you make me feel them,
To create these jars so that i can use them,
So i can win my own wars with stronger defined purposes,
So i can carry up high, with pride, broadcasting to the world, my emblem.

This emblem that represents me for me,
Represents me, my stand, and what i'm fighting for,
And i'm fighting for what i believe in deeply,
Regardless of how many times i fall.

And if thats the case then you know what,
Don't ever stop pumpin, heart,
And pain, oh u bastardly pain,
Poke my eyes out, take away my limbs,
Tear my insides, incinerate my skin,
For, heart, i guess with all this pain,
you'll indirectly supply me strength from within.

And if pain gives me strength,
and if strength is what i need to get thru one pain,
if strength is what i need to end one pain before i jump into another,
And if life's gonna be circling that way,
this way as I've gathered,
Then pour me with all the pain that you have,
Prepare me heart with strength for every second that you'll beat,
And until that day you've decided to give up on me,
I will try my best to never give up on me, too.

Coz we both know that those beats you beat,
they signal life.
My life, as it flows within

and them beats,

They're for me.

And they're for nobody else but me.

I've been wanting to write..

I've been wanting to write,
For oh so long,
I've been wanting to write,
But these words kept on comin' out wrong.

But heck,
Now that i have 30 minutes to kill,
Imma just let these fingers of mine,
type at its own free will.

Thoughts and images,
oh how they were crowding my mind,
Too many thoughts and images,
They had fucked the peace that was once mine.

How determination can instantly crumble,
By sources of negativity thats not even worth the gamble,
How motivation dies out when you need it the most,
Leaving you floating adrift like a pathetic ghost.

And then the heart was burdened,
By a mission to search for lost purposes and passion,
Passion that was once burning,
Until recently?
Its not even glowing.

But hey, i'm not here to fret nor complain,
I'm here to show y'all out there
that with pain,
you'll somehow gain.

Because regardless of how
whatever shit may pull you to a downfall,
These hardships give you stronger and sheer reasons
to wanna get thru it all.

You might right now be on your knees
trying to push yourself up,
Got yourself 2 inches above the ground,
and then you get slammed back down

Slammed back down,
yea slammed back down,
got your lips chipped, nose bled,
as you're constantly being slammed back down.

But here's where the magic begins,
For this girl is no quitter,
coz the more times i'm down,
the stronger i feel to wanna be up and do better

and thats when purpose starts burning in your heart again,
and when infinite strength pumps in your veins so you can mend,
Mend those tired and exhausted bones to be firm and strong,
To give this the push it needs so you can say so long.

So long, farewell,
Adios amigo,
Dont be too comfortable at where youre at,
Coz demons of mine, its about time u go.

And before you know it,
2 inches becomes a foot,
a foot becomes 5,
and alas you'll be standing back up,
taller than before, stronger than before,
with your head held up high.

Shit happens in life,
Everybody knows it,
But sometimes what everbody fails to do,
is to embrace the fact that they happen, too.

And there's nobody but themselves
that should be most grateful of their own existence,
that shouldn't be wasting away opportunities to greatness,
that should stand up for what they believe in, despite whatever madness.

Coz imma tell u now,
i ain't gonna give up,
I ain't gonna give up,
and
I ain't gonna give up.

And that imma fight thru
I'mma fight thru,
and if you're facing the same shit,
You should fight thru, too.

Safe and Sound - Voice and Piano cover by Me :)



Sure has been awhile since I actually sing in my covers huh? I just got back on my two feet from very personal battles in my life.. and in the midst of all the turmoil, this song made its appearance, and i can't help myself but to love it :) I find it rather soothing and haunting at the same time. So here's me singing a short cover of this song, while playing the piano, dedicating this personally to KAZ. Thank you for everything.. :) and of course this goes out to all those out there who are fighting battles of your own :) Its a bit high pitched though, lemme warn you that lol. And again, there's a buzzing sound here and there too. I think i need a better mic or something lol. Anywho, enjoy! :)

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

So i decided to make a cover with a certain somebody one day :)



So I've been wanting to do a cover with this particular person for quite awhile now, for i believe he has a beaaauuutiful voice, and of course for other obvious reasons lol and i finally manage to do so! yay! :) If you listen properly though, you might hear some interference here and there, the piano might seem a bit shaky and thats only coz i've yet to master the audio controls and what not, but i promise you that that shall be improved in covers to come.. :) But anyway, its an honor to be able to make covers with you Khairul Asyraf Zulkifli.. I had fun! Told you you're the best partner in crime i've ever had :)
As for you listeners, enjoy! :)

World



World,

My dear world,

What has become of you?

What have we done to you?


I look at you,

and my heart aches.

I look at the people you hold within you,

and my heart aches even more.


Shouldn't we be living with honesty and sincerity?

But now all i see is greed and animosity.

What on earth has happened to your priorities?

Why has it all being mixed up with corruptivity?


I just don't get it,

Whats the point of having things when you're hurting others while you're at it?

Your heart will never be at peace,

It will never be satisfied nor enough,

that i can promise.


Enough with your lies and schemes,

Enough with boasting around your stupidity,

We know how idiotic you are, trust me,

and I'm sick and tired of witnessing it all already.


Enough is enough i say,

Let's make this world a better place to stay,

A place where our children are free to play,

Where all of us feel at peace to pray.


Enough.

Inspiring bits from the lives of people i dont know..

"Today, exactly one year after my son passed away, as I was cleaning more of his things out of his room, I found a note card in one of his desk drawers that had usernames and passwords for various online accounts. I just logged into his Gmail account to find that his ex-girlfriend has been sending him multi-paragraph emails every single day since he passed."

"Today, I found out that one of my close friends died overseas in the Army. I was barely holding back my tears as I walked home from work when I looked up to see a teenage boy walking toward me. He had a post-it note stuck to the center of his t-shirt that said, “Smile.” The ‘i’ in “Smile” was dotted with a heart. He saw me looking at it, grinned, turned the other way for a few seconds, and then turned back around holding the post it note out so he could stick it to my shirt. I let him place it on my shirt. It wasn’t until I got home and took the post-it note off that I realized the post-it note he put on my shirt said, “You’re Beautiful.” The ‘i’ in “Beautiful” was dotted with a smile face. It made me smile for the first time all day."

"Today, it’s been five years since I was severely beaten up by three bullies at a college party for stopping them from trying to bring a drugged girl home with them. I lost a tooth, received two black eyes and severely bruised ribs from the incident, but I stopped them. This girl was my crush for three years but had never noticed me as boyfriend material until that night. When I woke up in ICU 12 hours after I was beaten up, she was sitting beside my bed, asleep while holding my hand. Since then, we've been steadily dating for five years and are engaged to be married. Who says nice guys finish last?"

"Today, I was feeling very down while heading out to a family dinner. I was in the back seat of the car with my 12-year-old brother who's never affectionate to me. My boyfriend had just dumped me, but I didn't want to tell my family yet. While I sat in the car with my sunglasses on to cover my tear filled eyes, my little brother looked at me a few times and then reached over and held my hand for the rest of the car ride."

"Today, on our ten year wedding anniversary, my middle school/high school sweetheart wrote me a love letter for the very first time. The final sentence reads, “I love you more every day, and I’m so proud to say we’ve been inseparable since we were velociraptors wrecking havoc on the playground so many moons ago"

And this would be my favourite huhu

"Today, I received this text message from my finance’: “I want this too. I want all of it. I want the pointless bickering, the long walks, the late night phone calls, the good morning texts. I want cute pictures with you, to hold your hand, to make food for you, to call you baby. The joking, the wrestling, the fights, the long ‘how I feel’ text messages on the days we aren’t on the same page. I want to be one of those inseparable best friend couples that people are like ‘you’re still together?’ That’s what I want. With you."

At one point in life, i've lost faith in people. I thought its best to live alone. If you're any one of my loyal readers, you'd probably have noticed that too.. :) But, then i went to ireland, and met with one of the most motivating person i've ever encountered, and he told me that there's always a reason why God created us with each other. A few months after, i met this guy. And i remembered we were at Pullman, after a jog, when he told me the same thing. We're here to inspire one another. We're here to make each other better huhu. Its amazing really..

And now, i've come to realise, how true their words were.. huhu..

I Won't Give Up - Short piano cover by Me :)




I personally fell in love with this song the moment i heard it for the first time huhu. And especially now that i could relate to so much, you'd have no idea how much it means to me :) So i've decided to make a cover of it. Perhaps i could've done a better job, but, oh well lol. Enjoy! :)

Frustration


One after another,

they come one after another,

hitting me like thunder,

hitting me like there's no other

You there,

you tell me somethin',

when is it all gonna change?

when is it all gonna settle?

when are things gonna get better?

Coz let me tell you somethin',

this heart is on its fall,

these legs are on to a crawl,

these knees can no longer stand tall

They say things will get better for those who Wait,

Yo, i aint got the time to wait,

coz i've been on a wait,

on a too long of a wait.

They say to persevere,

Man, Thats exactly what i did here,

and guess what, my effin' self is still here,

movin' to nowhere but here.

Its just frustrating is all,

I think i've given my all,

what else is in need?

tell me what more do you need?

What more do they need?

What more do i need?

what more do i need?

But deep down i know,

this is just one of His puzzles,

His puzzles that i have pieces to,

His puzzles that He knows i'm able.

Yea, able to solve,

able to mend,

able to breathe,

able to stand again.

He knows I'm able,

and I know i am.

Arghh FD frustration shit,

imma go to bed,

so long good night,

Oh and lisa,

i hope ull enjoy being wed.

Its a brand new day..




Thoughts,
They keep on coming,
The what ifs,
The Should haves,
They keep on coming,
They keep on streaming,
and all you want at that particular moment,
is for these thoughts to stop flowing.

So you set yourself for slumber,
only to be shocked by the shout of timber,
as thoughts seep into your dreams,
your nightmares became as real as it seemed

Your slumber became dark,
too dark that it woke u up,
thinking that that will make it all feel better,
but all you feel is the heart turning bitter.

This bitterness,
it feels so familiar,
And i thought i promised myself,
never to ever again put myself here.

But with familiarity,
comes ideas to persevere.
And ignorance seemed an option so clear,
rise back up, and move along dear.

Move along to what is certain,
push away of everything that is not,
Images, thoughts, they're not real until they happen,
And so leave them be, oh i hope they'll rot

And as the sun's beam seep thru the corner of your eye,
trying to get your attention,
you walk out the door,
and notice the clear sky.

and then you remember where you are,
what you have,
what you're capable of,
and you know that when all of this is over,
you'll be okay.

What happened yesterday,
fuck it,
coz guess what?,
its a brand new day :)









Frail - An original composition by Me :)



People,
They come,
They affect you,
They care for you,
They love you..

and then one fine day,
they'll leave..

We gotta make peace with that..
Accept the fact that we will lose..
Accept the fact that whats here, is temporary..
So that the heart will not be filled with the fear of losing nor regret,
and instead be filled with gratefulness and thankfulness,
that once upon a time ago,
these people drop by to say hello :)

Enjoy! :)

So why are we talking to each other again?


With everything happening today
You don't know whether you're coming or going

But you think that you're on your way
Life lined up on the mirror
don't blow it

Look at me when I'm talking to you
You looking at me
but I'm looking through you

I see the blood in your eyes
I see the love in disguise
I see the pain hidden in your pride
I see you're not satisfied
And I don't see nobody else
I see myself

I see the truth in your lies
I see nobody by your side
But I'm with you
when you are all alone
And you correct me
when I'm looking wrong
I see the guilt beneath the shame
I see your soul through your window pain
I see the scars that remain
I see Me

Looking at me now
I can see my past
I guess i still look good in a broken mirror,
I see my momma smile,
Now that's a blessing,
I see the change,
I see the message
And no message
could've been any clearer

I'm looking at the mirror on the wall
Here we are again,
Through my rise and fall,
You've been my only friend,
You told me they can understand the way i am,
So why are we here,
talking to each other again?

True,
these ain't my own words,
Its Mars and Waynes,
and i ain't gonna claim any of em,

Though they sang with their soul,
and Wayne rapped with his heart
like his heart was my heart,
coz they both kinda feelin the same thing
like they both went thru the same thing...

Keira - A short impromptu original by ME! :D



So i was, as always, playing around with the keys, experimenting new sounds, and i stumbled upon this tune which later, decided to record whatever that i could make out of it, spontaneously. And i present to you, the end product! lol.. After listening to it a couple of times, it reminds me a lot of this particular bestfriend of mine. May you be blessed by Him always.. :) Enjoy!

Bane - A short impromptu original by Yasmin




My music teacher told me that music is all about creating tension and resolving it at the end. So i was playing around with the chords and keys, and ended up with this piece :) I wish i could add more sounds to it, but somehow i feel its nicer to just keep it with the piano this time.. either that, or i was out of ideas hahaha.. Anywho, if you're listening to it, thank you so much for doing so.. :) Enjoy!

Exams

It was 9 years ago, back when life was all about catching students without name tags and winning the annual choral speaking competition lol. I remembered it was uztazah Aisyah who told my best friend, Syahirah, who, after that, shared with me this particular thing which, until now, i've failed to remove it from my mind. She said,

"Bila time exam ni la, macam2 akan menguji kita"

At that age, i thought she wasn't making any sense. I mean like, how hard could an exam be? All you have to do is read and answer a few questions. It took me 9 years later to realise how her words has become one of the most honest lines i've gotten from a living human being lol.

Exams are hard times. And somehow, it gets harder as you grow older. Not just because of the content of the exams, but because of the expectations that you carry on your shoulder plus the numberless of commitments and distractions that just keeps adding itself by the second. Exams are hard times, and if u know me well, u'd know how much i despise exams.

But hey, guess what, tomorrows the last paper, and i can't wait for it all to end!!!! I feel drained. Literally drained. And there's a huge need for a rejuvenation process + an intervention! yes. That, i shall promise myself with.

~Where were you?

Where were you
when everything was falling apart?
All my days
were spent by the telephone
that never rang
And all I needed was a call that never came
To the corner of 1st and Amistad

Lost and insecure, you found me, you found me
Lying on the floor surrounded, surrounded
Why'd you have to wait?
Where were you?
Where were you?
Just a little late,
you found me,
you found me!

Why'd you have to wait to find me,
to find me?





Hahaha, i miss this :)







Now i miss New York City even more lol..

~And my love is yours but your love's not mine, So I'll go but we know i'll see you down the line :)



Wake up to the sound of your fleeting heart
Wake up to the sound of your fleeting heart
When you go, what you leave is a work of art
On my chest, on my heart

She went out to the hay in the morning grace
She went out and got lost in a tall hedge maze
Where'd you go? Where'd you go? Why'd you leave this place?
On my heart, on my face

Past all the signs of the slow decline
Live like your love wasn't meant for mine
Now you've gone, now you've gone to a different life
Til the loneliest side

And my love is yours but your love's not mine
So I'll go but we know I'll see you down the line
And we'll hate what we've lost but we'll love what we find
And I'm feeling fine, we've made it to the coastline

The Last bits of being 22





"I answer to no one, but God. So if these people think they could scare me, if these people think they could boss, and bully me around, they better think again. "

"Have you guys ever felt like there's always something missing in life? Have you ever wondered why the world can never be perfect, yet we seek for perfection? Its because this world was never meant for us to stay in the first place. We don't belong here. We belong in Allah's heavens. Now is only a key holder thats filled with keys, and its up to us to find the right key to His door"

"The reason why God created men to be among other people is so that we can help one another, inspire one another to reach further. To gain what no man can gain alone. No man is an island"

"From where i'm standing, you have everything"

"The art of living, is to learn how to let go. And in order to let go, you somehow gotta have it first"

"Don't ever judge someone, or assume without trying to understand them, first"

"Don't worry, about a thing. Coz every little thing, is gonna be alright"

"At the end of the day, you'll get thru it. I know it. And you know it, too. That's just how life is"

"MasyaAllah.. "

"Don't ever let anyone tell you how to be, Yasmin."

"You gotta keep some cards to yourself. That's how you play the game"

"If he or she doesn't like you the way you are, you can always show them the exit door, and wave tata"

"You'll never know until it comes to you"

"It will always be a pleasure to have you both here again someday :)"

"When are ya gonna visit me?"

"The only person who'll take care of that heart of yours, is Allah and yourself"

"Sometimes, to care makes you weak. And to be weak, makes you strong"

Goodbye 22. You've taught me so much, and you've been good to me.
I know i'll be missing u :)

~ I could see for miles, miles, miles



“Someway, baby, it’s part of me, apart from me.”
you’re laying waste to Halloween
you fucked it friend, it’s on it’s head, it struck the street
you’re in Milwaukee, off your feet

…and at once I knew I was not magnificent

strayed above the highway aisle
(jagged vacance, thick with ice)
I could see for miles, miles, miles

3rd and Lake it burnt away, the hallway

was where we learned to celebrate
automatic bought the years you’d talk for me
that night you played me ╩╗Lip Parade╩╝
not the needle, nor the thread, the lost decree
saying nothing, that’s enough for me

…and at once I knew I was not magnificent

hulled far from the highway aisle
(jagged, vacance, thick with ice)
I could see for miles, miles, miles

Christmas night, it clutched the light, the hallow bright

above my brother, I and tangled spines
we smoked the screen to make it what it was to be
now to know it in my memory:

…and at once I knew I was not magnificent

high above the highway aisle
(jagged vacance, thick with ice)
I could see for miles, miles, miles

So my hamsters decided to have a New Year's feast as well

It seemed like a 2012 miracle, at first. I was awaken by my sister's high pitched voice, telling me that my hamsters just had babies. Again. But i was more prepared this time though. Emotionally prepared to be deceived, yes haha and thank God i was.

If you happen to have guessed that my hamsters had babies before, I would tell you that you're correct. If you happen to know that my hamsters had babies before, knew what became of them in the end, and now you're thinking that this time around, there ain't gonna be any difference ? I would tell you you're damn fuckin' right. I guess the idea of continuing their generation ain't much of a new year miracle to these two hamsters of mine. They decided to partayyyy BIG TIME instead, and haf their kids as the main course of the night, to start off the year with haha. What looneys. But lucky me, as i've said, i got myself prepared for this the moment i heard about it considering it has happened twice before. Got myself Emotionally prepared lol.

So my dad asked me this morning, why do my hamsters like to eat their babies? Their own kind? I thought about it, and replied,

"Perhaps they felt threatened by them,
and killing them was an option"

And all i had in mind after saying that
was
How similar these animals are with us humans..
heh..

Happy 2012 people :)
