For the last couple of days... I’ve been really into this song; without knowing the meaning of the song. Now that I’ve found what lies inside the beautiful voice, I’m more solemnly drowned into this.

By Voice of Soul [V.O.S]

The person I miss even though it’s only been a day
The person I’ve met all year but make it always seem like we met just yesterday
The person who makes me feel like I broke up with them every time I see them off
The person I’m too reluctant and sad to let go

The person who still laughs at my corny jokes
The person I can always rely on
The person for whom the words I love you seem to be insufficient
so that I want to give the world to them

You are my other half that I love
You’re the only person I love
Because you make me feel like I possess everything I need in the world to survive
Because I have you, with that, I am deeply thankful

The person who knows me even without me saying anything
The person who cries for me if they fear things will be difficult for me
The me without you who can’t do anything
The person who turns me into a fool and is my everything

You are my other half that I love
You’re the only person I love
Because you make me feel like I possess everything I need in the world to survive
Because I have you, with that, I am deeply thankful

Like our ring that is snugly fit on your finger
Promise me we’ll always treasure and protect each other
I love you, you who are my everything
Thank you, you who are my love
Even if I was offered the entire world, I wouldn’t change my mind
If I only have you, then that is enough for me

I love you, you who are my everything
You are my one and only love

Because it seems like I have everything there is to have in the world
Because I have you, for that, I’m deeply thankful.
Because I have you, for that, I’m deeply thankful.

Original lyrics for you to sing along

브이..에스 - 반쪽

하루만 못봐도 보고싶은 사람
일년을 만나도  어제 같은 사람
바래다 주는게 이별하는 것처럼
너무나 아쉬워 보내기 싫은 사람

썰렁한 농담도 웃어주는 사람
때론 내가 기대  수도 있는사람
사랑한단 말도 부족한것 같아서
 모든걸  주고픈 그런 사람

사랑하는 나의 반쪽 그대여
하나뿐인 나의 사랑 그대여
세상을  가진것만 같아서
그대가 있어서 그걸로 너무 감사하죠.

아무말 안해도  잘아는 사람
내가 힘들까봐 눈물 감추는 사람
그대가 없으면 아무것도 못하는
 바보로 만든사람  전부인 그사람

사랑하는 나의 반쪽 그대여
하나뿐인 나의 사랑 그대여
세상을  가진것만 같아서
그대가 있어서 그걸로 너무 감사하죠.

그대 손에 끼워진 우리의 반지처럼
 아껴주고 지켜주는 약속해

사랑해요 나의 전부 그대여
고마워요 나의 사랑 그대여
세상을 다줘도 바꿀수 없어
그대만 있다면 그걸로 충분하죠.

사랑하는 나의 반쪽 그대여
하나뿐인 나의 사랑 그대여

세상을  가진것만 같아서
그대가 있어서 그걸로 감사해요.
영원히 그댈 사랑해요.

I felt so sick
My stomach feels awful, I feel like throwing up
I don’t want to eat anything
My head is spinning, I feel like gonna faint
It’s always like this every time we had a big fight
Why can’t she see this as a prove of how much she means to me?
Not that I mind, which I don’t
But please understand these silent words,
That I love you and need you so much

This is something I posted in TVXQ Indo - Jaejoong b'day Event: The Acronym Contest. I was kinda fancy with the result so I post it here too...

Your appearance has change my whole world
Oh wait… no… you’re not
U change the whole world of our life
No matter how old or where we’re came from,
Gladly surrender under your charm

World might slowing down,
Or spinning so fast
Our heart will stay truth ‘till the end
Never change, never

Just hold tight to our love
And to our heart
Embracing the warm of our smile
Just like the sun shining so bright
Our togetherness…
Our love…
Nail forever in our soul, and
Give each one of us happiness

Joongie.. saranghaee...

Day 7
It’s been a week already but I don’t think I’ve change.
During this week I took so many notes to myself and that’s makes me wonder if the notes will get much of my attention.
After these several days I learnt and trying to do so many things in my life. I want my own happiness and someone told me I have to work it for myself. Stupid huh, I have to had someone told me what to do for something like that. But somehow lately that’s like who I am. Anyway, she gave me this ‘task’ so I can move and start grabbing my own life.
Since that I start to take a note and trying to do something.
I start to look for a way to make peace with myself. And how easy it can be? ><
It’s not but I do realize that is the important thing if I want to get out from this ‘dark me’.
Then I learn to be able with that I have to learn to feel good about myself first, and learn to have positive mind, to have self-control, stay focus and keep walking.

I was thinking if I’m able to make peace with myself, I can be a better me, even become a good person.
But then in these several days, I got a test already -.-
And guess what, I fail so miserably. I lost control, I can’t keep my positive mind and I definitely can’t feel good about myself. I called it as failed at 3 steps at once. Such a failure!
But then because of this failure, I see something wrong in me again. That I was never be a good friend to everyone especially my best friend. Then now my new task is added, learn to be a real good friend.
But this time I got lost. How to be a real good friend?
That question sounds ridiculous right? I’ve been making friends since I was in kinder garden, why on earth I don’t know how to be a real good friend? Then how can I survive all this time?
Have I never a good one since back then?
