Set Fire To The Rain-Adele

ADELE-truly touch billions of heart by her deep-soulful song and lyric.


Ini adalah interpret kepada manusia yang berfungsi seperti biasa tanpa cacat cela, strong dan dependant by herself and walk tall dimuka bumi ni.
Eventually, this person like you or me we had some melancholy issue deep deep inside us.
Some issue we never let go.
Something missing sometimes but we just ignore.
Sebab, tentulah kerana manusia takkan bahagia dengan menyedihkan diri menangis berliter-liter air mata.
Dan kerana bila ko menangis macam Kassim selamat pun, ko cucuk mata dgn garpu sampai berdarah dan buta, keluar bijik mata dgn gelnya sekali tetap takkan dapat mengembalikan seseorang yang teramat bermakna ke sisi a.k.a kekasih dulu, awal dan pertengahan, tiada kekasih awal akhir ye.
Sebab-very cliche' stories around- takde jodoh, halangan family,dia dah ada girlfriend lain dan tah pape lagi.
Sayugia diingatkan tiada cerita hindustand bagi orang-orang yg ditinggalkan seperti ini.
Jadi jgn tanya kenapa tak fight utk seseorang itu,macamana nak fight bila dia layan ko mcm hampeh, tipu kiri kanan dpn belakang, call 40ribu kali takmo jwb sb dia dah syok dgn orang lain atau ko hanya sparepart saja??
(cerita rekaan,tiada kaitan hidup dan mati).
Anyway,ni bukan nak citer pasal kisah love story tu..tapi pasal minah ADELE ni.
She's so brilliant,wrote most of her touching song and beware it's all a SOULFUL,sonorous voice and sorrowful song which means bila dengar rasa macam nak mati,meraung dlm hati dan nangis dlm hiba,tetiba rewind ke zaman mabuk kepayang,rasa cam kena pelempang dan ada orang ketuk kepala.
Bagi yg masih tak mau blah biarpun dah disakiti 4 juta kali hatinya...(rasa tak kuat,takleh hidup tanpa jantan keberet yg dah curi hati,yg dah pau berjuta lemon dlm akaun) dan aku takkan dpt hidup tanpamu syg...(dan biarpun aku dikerat 18 tak kisah asal kita tetap bersama..yeah ,keep on dreaming he will change for good). Golongan ini bila dengar lagu ADELE ni akan rasa tak sanggup nk tinggalkan alam cinta yg sedang dinikmati.

Ataupun bagi yang dah tinggalkan dunia 'sedikit gembira,banyak sengsara' itu,rasa beban dah lepas biarpun masih teringat pada si dia sikit-sikit.(time nak tido nangis slowly dan tanya hati 'kenapa kau seksa aku sebegini? 'kenapa aku sygkan ko tp ko tak pernah hargai?').
But salute kepada yg mampu hidup seadanya tanpa si dia, yg teruskan melangkah tanpa stuck dgn dia dan masih tabah harungi walau ada bayangnya bertamu sekali sekala. Cuma type ni buat muka ketat,ada aku kesah ko ada ke takde, ko ada tambah semakkan jiwa aku lagi ada la..rasa syg ada tp kewarasan fikiran melebihi kebangangan dan takmo musnahkan diri sendiri. I love you but please die.

Cuma,bila dgr lagu minah ADELE, alahai...menusuk kalbu, jiwa dan raga.
Sebab minah ni tersangat terrer merobek hati dgn lirik yg killer dan sangat mendalam.
Macam lirik someone like you jugak style jiwang lirik ni. Lagu lain ada jgk yg sedih dan frustrated,broken heart tp lagu Adele ni di describe dgn jayanya, hoho. Its brings up of emotion love lost.
Kalau ada yg perasan permulaan lagu ni rentak macam Francis Lai Love Story sikit2.
Jadi Adele ni adalah seangkatan dgn manusia yg jiwanya kacau tetapi maintain cool dan ada aku kesah type.Heh!
She's Queen of Pain and we love her.

I let it fall, my heart,
And as it fell you rose to claim it
It was dark and I was over
Until you kissed my lips and you saved me

My hands, they're strong
But my knees were far too weak
To stand in your arms
Without falling to your feet

But there's a side to you
That I never knew, never knew.
All the things you'd say
They were never true, never true,
And the games you play
You would always win, always win.

[Chorus:]
But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

When I lay with you
I could stay there
Close my eyes
Feel you here forever
You and me together
Nothing is better

'Cause there's a side to you
That I never knew, never knew,
All the things you'd say,
They were never true, never true,
And the games you play
You would always win, always win.

[Chorus:]
But I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name!

I set fire to the rain
And I threw us into the flames
Where it felt something die
'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time!

Sometimes I wake up by the door,
That heart you caught must be waiting for you
Even now when we're already over
I can't help myself from looking for you.

[Chorus:]
I set fire to the rain,
Watched it pour as I touched your face,
Well, it burned while I cried
'Cause I heard it screaming out your name, your name

I set fire to the rain,
And I threw us into the flames
Where it felt something die
'Cause I knew that that was the last time, the last time
ohhhhhhhh let it burn


Interpret:
1.I can personally relate to this particular song. The song is talking about a relationship coming to an end. Girl meets guy, he is wonderful and she falls really quick for the guy. He is wonderful and tells her all of these wonderful things, but really they were all a lie and now she is left with a broken heart. He continually tries to play games with her and no matter hard she fights, she will never win. Nothing she can do will fix the relationship. As hard as she doesn't want to let him go, she breaks it off in order to save herself for further heartbreak.

2.During an interview about the meaning behind the songs Adele described this song as "burning the pain and getting rid of it and demolishing it...and its sort of like a liberating song because you know when you break up and the other person who you've left or who has left you knows how much you love them and they try and make your life hell and make it so that you can never get over them by constantly being in touch...its kind of like that and its about taking it into your own hands and just saying go away f*** off"

3.This is a very emotionally intense song. I've listened to it several times over the last few days and having been in this situation, it's difficult to think back to feeling this way.
She loved someone, and he hurt her, lied to her, etc. and she's finally setting herself free, while still acknowledging very strong feelings for him.

Couple of things to point out:
"My hands, they were strong
but my knees were far too weak
to stand in your arms
without falling to your feet"
-She's saying that she was weak and perhaps submissive while she was with him; she let him have a power over her and do things to her that she shouldn't have. She might be saying that she had a dependency on him, but I could be reading my own situation into it too much there.

These other two parts of the song:
"when I lay with you, I could stay there close my eyes

Feel you here forever, you and me together, nothing is better"
and
"Sometimes I wake up by the door, that heart you caught must be waiting for ya
Even now when we're already over, I can't help myself from looking for ya'
-Are really painful to read. She's acknowledging that he's gone and it's over, but she still loves him, thinks about how it felt with him, and misses him.

Ultimately, the song is very strong because it's about how, despite her personal weaknesses in a relationship, and the power someone has/had over her, she was able to recognize that he was bad for her and was, ultimately, able to "set fire to" what was between them, burn it down, and push him out of her life for good.
I wouldn't have been able to listen to this song while I was going through it. Adele is an amazing artist and her voice with these lyrics is just incredible, I hope she continues to make music for a very long time.

4.Setting fire to the rain, for me is about doing the impossible. I believe that when she was leaving this manipulative person, she was still in love with him and therefore breaking it off was as powerful and as hard as setting fire to the rain.
The fire continued to burn and destroy the relationship while she cried and mourned the loss. The main theme of the song, as I see it, is the powerful conflict of leaving a person that is bad for you while you still love them.
In the end of the song she admits that it is over but she is still longing for the man she left.

5.Ok, this is how I see this song...
She was down, broken but this person walked into her life at the right time to pick her back up again. She used all her strength to hold this person and fall deeply in love with them but saved no strengh back to protect her from getting hurt. All she saw were the good things this person could do, blinded by love...

Then she realised that this wasnt the perfect person and that they were not as deep into the relationship as she was and they did not have as strong feelings.

I see the setting fire to the rain to be a mixture of feelings of how angry and upset she feels. The fire being her anger and the rain being the tears she is crying. She doesnt know whether to feel empty or full of rage. She can clearly see though, that this is the end of the relationship and that it will never work no matter how much of herself she tries to throw at it. I believe that she feels it will be easier to get over if she is angry rather than upset, let it burn...let it burn.

Adele Turns a ‘Rubbish Relationship’ Into (Grammy) Gold

Last night, Adele cleaned up at the Grammys, winning all six awards she was nominated for. The British star, who was singing in public for the first time since having vocal cord surgery, thanked some of the usual suspects — her mom, her co-writers — and someone a little more unexpected… her ex-boyfriend.
Anyone who has listened to one of the songs off of her album 21 knows that Adele got her heart broken something fierce. (“Someone Like You” so accurately touched a nerve in all people everywhere that Saturday Night Live spoofed the song’s ability to make people weep openly.) When Adele went to claim her trophy for Album of the Year, she said that the songs were inspired by something that everyone understood: “a rubbish relationship.”
What your grandma and Kelly Clarkson say is true: whatever doesn’t kill you will make you stronger. In Adele’s case, turning heartbreak into megahit award-winning songs means that she clearly came out the winner in this situation. After all, we don’t even know her ex’s name or what he looks like, but Adele has been on the cover of Vogue. And despite a bad breakup being the catalyst to making her a megastar, she hasn’t been wallowing: there was a cute smiley guy sitting next to her last night, and that’s only the icing on the awesome cake.

Somebody's Me




You, do you remember me?

Like I remember you?
Do you spend your life
Going back in your mind to that time?

Cause I, I walk the streets alone
I hate being on my own
And everyone can see that I really fell
And I'm going through hell
Thinking about you with somebody else

Somebody wants you, somebody needs you
Somebody dreams about you every single night
Somebody can't breathe, without you it?s lonely
Somebody hopes that one day you will see
That somebody's me, that somebody's me, yeah
How, how did we go wrong?
It was so good and now it's gone
And I pray at night that our paths soon will cross
And what we hide isn't lost
Cause you're always right here in my thoughts

Somebody wants you, somebody needs you
Somebody dreams about you every single night
Somebody can?t breathe, without you it's lonely
Somebody hopes that one day you will see
That somebody's me, oh, yeah

You will always be in my life even if I'm not in your life
Cause you're in my memory
You, will you remember me?
And before you set me free, oh, listen please

Somebody wants you, somebody needs you
Somebody dreams about you every single night
Somebody can't breathe, without you it's lonely
Somebody hopes that someday you will see
Somebody's me, that somebody's me
That somebody's me, that somebody's me, oh, yeah



The One and Only Financial Resolution You Need to Make in 2012

As you consider your financial goals for 2012, remember that trying to tackle too many projects or resolutions at once can quickly derail you. (How often have you set out to adopt every virtue on New Year's Eve only to lose all momentum by February?) So let's try something with staying power this year: Read the following six goals. If there is one that makes you think, Oh, I would feel so amazing if I could nail that one, that, my friend, is the one and only resolution I want you to focus on. If in a few months you want to tackle another one, great. But for now, apply laser focus. Giving one goal your all—one deliberate step at a time—is the best path I've seen to success.

-"This is the year I get serious about emergency savings."
As of September 2011, about four in ten unemployed Americans had been out of work for more than six months. I know my advice to have eight months of emergency savings can be a serious challenge—and I don't expect you to be able to check this off your to-do list in a few months—but it's doable, if you push past good intentions to action. Set up a monthly automatic deposit from your checking account into a savings account. Then think of an amount you can reasonably save each month—and double it. Don't dismiss this as impossible. I have rarely seen a household budget that couldn't be seriously trimmed. To really boost your savings, try living on 75 percent of your income for one month (or, for dual-income households, living on one salary). Little luxuries you'd normally justify by saying you "must" have them will quickly reveal themselves to be the drain that they are—and your emergency savings fund will get a nice bump.

-"This is the year I have "the talk" with my parents."
As if your own financial security weren't stressful enough, you may also be worrying about your parents and the security of their retirement and estate. Talking about this is how an adult child shows her love for an aging parent, and I applaud you for caring. Unfortunately, most people stop at retirement savings and trusts—they don't dig into all future scenarios. Encourage your parents to seriously consider long-term-care insurance (LTCI). Given long life expectancies and the extreme cost of nursing home and at-home care, LTCI can be a godsend for families. It can give you peace of mind that a loved one's needs won't bankrupt you, and it can save you from shouldering the burden of being a full-time caregiver. Learn more at LongTermCare.gov and GotLTCI.com.

-"This is the year I teach my kids how to value money."
Schools, for the most part, do a lousy job teaching kids about money. That falls to you. Don't expect them to learn through family telepathy; I urge you to start the conversation when they're young. Kids love interactive games more than lectures, so drive home the power of money with an exercise they can excel at. Sit with your kids and show them what your utility bills are—how much it costs to make the laptops hum and the water run. Then tell them how much your bill was a year ago for the current month. For example, what was your January 2011 bill? Have your kids calculate 10 to 15 percent of that bill. Next, explain that if this January's bill can be that much lower (you decide what actual percent you want to aim for), you will split the savings with them. It's amazing how quickly this helps kids connect shorter showers and turning off lights to the dollars and cents your family spends—or saves. And the Great Utility Challenge, as I call this, can also start other family converstions about money. For super kid-friendly energy tips, visit the federal government's Energy Star Web site (EnergyStar.gov).

-"This is the year I curb my appetite for Groupon and LivingSocial."
The fact that you spend less on something does not make purchasing it a smart move—or make it something you can afford. A deal that reduces the tab at a favorite restaurant or halves the price of a pair of designer shoes can still be a huge mistake. Yet people get so seduced by the amount of money they're "saving,: they overlook the fact that they're still spending. This needs to stop. Spending a cent on any "want" when your long-term needs are being ignored or shortchanged is irresponsible. A discount can be a disaster if it keeps you from focusing on what's important.

-"This is the year I stop thinking of financial windfalls as 'splurge money.'"
Coaxing yourself to cut spending in favor of saving can be hard. Saving money before it ever lands in your checking account is infinitely easier. What I see all too often, though, is a tendency for people to almost mindlessly increase their spending when they receive a windfall like a work bonus, raise, or unexpected gift. Make a pact right here and now that this won't happen to you in 2012—you're going to save 75 percent of every bit of unexpected money that comes your way, no ifs, ands, or buts. The other 25 percent? Feel free to spend it. (But if you want to save that, too, you get my serious approval.) Staying on a plan that's all about denial is nearly impossible; a balanced, moderate approach is more sustainable. So giving yourself permission to spend 25 percent of the money can actually be the key to saving the other 75 percent.

-"This is the year I max out my company's 401(k) match."
The amount you save for retirement is far more important than how you invest that money. Don't get me wrong; I want you to pay attention to the types of mutual funds and ETFs you choose for your retirement portfolio. But even the most brilliantly diversified portfolio isn't going to get the job done if you're not putting enough into it. You already know you should contribute enough to your work-based retirement account to get the full match from your employer. Now here's your goal for 2012: Tally up what you set aside in your 401(k) and IRA, and increase that amount by 1 percent. Next year increase it by another percent. Keep this up until you are setting aside 15 percent of your gross income for retirement. I know 15 percent may sound overwhelming, but here's the beauty of this structure: There's no way you can tell me with a straight face that you can't afford 1 percent more each year. You'll barely notice the difference in your checking account. Yet that small difference can add tens of thousands of dollars to your retirement account over time.

Backpack plan to Kashmir

Impian dihati nak backpack ke Kashmir hujung tahun ni,sewaktu winter.

Sekarang tgh survey website tetapi malangnya..ramai yg buat pakej bersekali Delhi,Agra dan Jaipur.
Tapi yg tak best nya aku tak minat tempat yg bersejarah dan bukan nak pi shoping bagaiii..aku hanya nak pi tgk permandangan gunung ganang Himalaya,golek2 dog kt salji,tgk musim bunga ke,pusing pusing di lembah gunung ala ala Maria dalam Sound Of Music tu .. yakni benda yg takde dan takleh buat kt Malaysia.

bestnya dpt pusing2 cam gini dilatari gunung ganang dan bunga bungaan..takde hero pun aku peduli hape


Tugu?Masjid?..kt Malaysia pun ado.Kolonial building?bersepah kat Penang.Pilih mana yg nak.
Tengok pakej ikut tour mahaiii beno..sampai 5k lebih sedangkan kalau backpack tu boleh jimat 1,2k tu.Pi korea lagi murah tapi Kashmir lagi lawa..heaven on earth.Aku rasa filem Hritik Roshan berlakon tu kt Jammu-Kashmir la,tak silap tajuk Krishhh.pokok pine,gunung2,memang ala ala Switzerland,atau Salzburg tahap bajet cantik dia.
Korea terlalu kormersial aku rasa padahal tempat dia biasa jek,nami island,shoping lagi apa?
(K-pop mania jgn mareeee).kelebihan Kashmir ni bajet dia ok apa,tak semahal korea,makanan pun halal sb ramai islam.Biryani dia memang meletop...ikut cerita kwn2 yg penah pi sana.Cuma orang takut sb konflik.
Kalau pakej stkt Dehli ok la,boleh singgah Taj Mahal sb dah dkt..ni nak ke Red Fort Agra punyalah jauh,2 jam camtu,haihhh.Sebab cita-cita nak pi Europe tu mungkin terlaksana 2 tahun lagi so sebagai pembakar semangat,better pi Kashmir dulu.ada sapa nak join?tgh cari teman backpack yg sehati sejiwa nih.
Bajet maybe 2k tak termasuk tiket kapalterbang.Cukup kot..pi dalam 6hari camtu.Pergi panaskan badan dulu..Lagipun kos melancong ke india ni tak mahal sgt,makan sume kira affordable.
Bkn apa,terpengaruh dgn blog Aidil Yusof  la ni dlm entry ' lovely Kashmir'.Tu yg buat haku mkn hati tgk gambo2 kt sana.

Tempat wajib pergi ke Kashmir ni plan aku ada 3 tempat yg aku include:
1.Pahalgam
ada iras-iras cam Austria atau Switzerland tak?




2.Gulmarg






3.Sonmarg



Teramat-amatlah cantik Kashmir ni...kalau tak takkan digelar ;heaven on earth ' ye tak.
bajet pergi pada bulan Februari-March sebab masa tu winter lagi dan nak masuk ke spring.Tahun bila jgn tanya...sebab tgh plan,maybe next year takpun 2014..heh lambatnya.
