It good to see someone from your own small town do very well in their life, and be famous because of it. I’m so proud of these homegrown talents who made it big. There are a handful but i would like to focus on Mia Palencia. Such soulful voice. Such talent. Beautiful.

She grew up being in the lime light. Always have. I first knew her when she sang at our school event. She was a couple years my junior. It was clear that she is a rare talent and who will not stop doing what she does. More than 15 years later, she’s still singing..and doing even more.  To find out more about her, go to her homepage Mia Palencia. Check out her latest album too Songs from the Jiwang Kingdom.

Enjoy one of her song from her latest album. Really hit home for me.

Newton Faulkner – People Should Smile More March 25, 2010

A beautiful song from a beautiful (and extremely talented) guitarist.  All this world need are more smiles…so smile more peeps 🙂

People should smile more
Im not saying theres nothing to cry for but you’ve got
Everything laid out for you
Just close your eyes, take a deep breath and start another war

Keep buying, keep moving, this city, is sitting,
next to me, well laid out, it’s gona come, one thing is certain

I can’t change the world
Cos tryin’ to make a difference makes things worst
It’s just an observation I can’t ignore
That people should smile more

People should smile more
But the lights are so bright that they blind you, just one more
Meaningless scientific break through
The more we know, the less we care whilst damaged on the way

Keep moving, keep buying, this city, is sitting
Next to me, well laid out, it’s gona come, one thing is certain

I can’t change the world
Cos tryin’ to make a difference makes things worst
It’s just an observation I can’t ignore
That people should smile more

Doo doo ba doo da doo dee dee do x4

I can’t change the world
Cos tryin’ to make a difference makes things worst
It’s just an observation I can’t ignore
That people should smile more

I can’t change the world
Cos tryin’ to make a difference makes things worst
It’s just an observation I can’t ignore
That people should smile more

 

Live like We’re Dying February 9, 2010

Beautiful song for all of us to bring us through this lifetime. Kris Alle, you rawk!!!

Live Like We’re Dying Lyrics

Sometimes we fall down and can’t get back up

we’re hiding behind skin that’s too tough

how come we don’t say I love you enough

till it’s to late, it’s not too late

Our hearts are hungry for the food that won’t come

we could make a feast from these crumbs

and we’re all staring down the barrel of a gun

so if your life flashed before you what would you wish you would’ve done

 

Yeah… gotta start lookin at the hand of the time we’ve been given here

this is all we got and we gotta start pickin it

every second counts on a clock that’s tickin’

gotta live like we’re dying

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day

to turn it all around or throw it all away

we gotta tell ’em that we love ’em while we got the chance to say

gotta live like we’re dying

 

And if your plane fell out of the skies

who would you call with your last goodbyes

should be so careful who we live out our lives

so when we long for absolution there’ll no one on the line

 

Yeah… gotta start lookin at the hand of the time we’ve been given here

this is all we got and we gotta start pickin it

every second counts on a clock that’s tickin’

gotta live like we’re dying

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day

to turn it all around or throw it all away

we gotta tell ’em that we love ’em while we got the chance to say

gotta live like we’re dying

 

Like we’re dying oh– like we’re dying [x2]

 

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day

to turn it all around or throw it all away

we gotta tell ’em that we love ’em while we got the chance to say

gotta live — like we’re dying

 

We never know a good thing till it’s gone

you never see a crash until it’s head on

all those people right when we’re dead wrong

you never know a good thing till it’s gone

 

Yeah… gotta start lookin at the hand of the time we’ve been given here

this is all we got and we gotta start livin it

every second counts on a clock that’s tickin’

gotta live like we’re dying

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day

to turn it all around or throw it all away

we gotta tell ’em that we love ’em while we got the chance to say

gotta live like we’re dying

 

Like we’re dying oh — like we’re dying [x2]

 

We only got 86 400 seconds in a day

to turn it all around or throw it all away

we gotta tell ’em that we love ’em while we got the chance to say

gotta live like we’re dying live like we’re dying [Fade out]

I like this song. Its so catchy, upbeat and feel good. Life is really just a big show…you cant do much about it but just try to enjoy the show…The video is not bad too. Very simple & light and it just shows that whatever & whenever life pulls her, she lets it be and just smile about it…Nice work Lenka!!

I’m just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don’t know where to go, can’t do it alone
I’ve tried and I don’t know why

Slow it down, make it stop or else my heart is going to pop
‘Cause it’s too much, yeah it’s a lot to be something I’m not
I’m a fool out of love ’cause I just can’t get enough

I’m just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don’t know where to go, can’t do it alone
I’ve tried and I don’t know why

I’m just a little girl lost in the moment
I’m so scared but I don’t show it
I can’t figure it out, it’s bringing me down
I know I’ve got to let it go and just enjoy the show

The sun is hot in the sky just like a giant spotlight
The people follow the signs and synchronize in time
It’s a joke nobody knows, they’ve got a ticket to the show

Yeah, I’m just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don’t know where to go, can’t do it alone
I’ve tried and I don’t know why

I’m just a little girl lost in the moment
I’m so scared but I don’t show it
I can’t figure it out, it’s bringing me down
I know I’ve got to let it go and just enjoy the show
Just enjoy the show

I’m just a little bit caught in the middle
Life is a maze and love is a riddle
I don’t know where to go, can’t do it alone
I’ve tried and I don’t know why

I’m just a little girl lost in the moment
I’m so scared but I don’t show it
I can’t figure it out, it’s bringing me down
I know I’ve got to let it go and just enjoy the show
Just enjoy the show, just enjoy the show

I want my money back, I want my money back
I want my money back, just enjoy the show
I want my money back, I want my money back
I want my money back, just enjoy the show
