When you marry good music with good moves

September 30, 2010

You have it all, Music, words, body language.

So beautiful.

Lyrics below…

Six thoughts at once I can’t focus on one
Seven days a week but my life has just begun
So caught in emotion and I’m overcome
As I’m falling down I come undone

Sometimes I feel like I’m alone
Sometimes I feel like I’m not that strong
Sometimes I feel so frail so small
Sometimes I feel vulnerable
Sometimes I feel a little fragile
A little fragile

In six thousand years what will this mean
Words from the heart or a melody
So caught in emotion and I’m overcome
As I’m falling down I come undone

Sometimes I feel like I’m alone
Sometimes I feel like I’m not that strong
Sometimes I feel nothing at all
Sometimes I feel vulnerable
Sometimes I feel a little fragile
A little fragile

If people can see right through my eyes
Like an open door that I can’t disguise
I won’t be afraid from the tears I cry
I’ll not run I’ll not hide this is how I feel inside
A little fragile
A little fragile

Sometimes I feel like I’m alone
Sometimes I feel like I’m not that strong
Sometimes I feel so frail so small
Sometimes I feel vulnerable
Sometimes I feel a little fragile

His Artist

October 20, 2009

He create artistes to gift the world with beauty.
Let our craft be simple and easy.
That even the simplest of heart can breathe it in.
Even the worst of mind will be touch by it.

Let not this gift be tainted to mislead.
Judge our heart motives
Weigh those fame and glory.
Careful that our craft don’t amounts to nothing.

No artist is great without the ovation from the audience.
Your performance may be great,
but you have no one to celebrate.
Artist are not made merely for fame.

Out of the overflow of the heart
is the beauty imprinted.
By the master creator,
his artist to bring healing.

I want to be God’s artist,
Love is my paintbrush,
unconditional is my paint,
his people is the canvas of my artwork.

A glimpse of Heaven; Artist Manifesto

September 13, 2009

Last sat, Qian Jing shared a clip from the Colour’s Conference.

The word that I caught is “A glimpse of Heaven”

I had always believe in the power of Arts to glorify God. But I think I finally found the key word to this vision, that is a “glimpse of Heaven”, I believe that through Arts (songs, media, dance, etc..), artist paints a glimpse of heaven for the rest of the world to see. It’s not just man-made mind blowing effects, but a deeply anointed and spiritual experience. 

Till now, the clip still send chills down my spine. 

No more lazing around! Through prayer and diligence in improving my skills, I want to nurture the seeds that God has place in my heart. I want to know God, know him well, so that I can paint a glimpse of his heaven to the broken and cynical. I want to “put God in their faces.” With outrageous faith and diligent hands, I want to be God’s artist.

Tonight, God place in my heart an Artist Manifesto.

With singing, dancing, music and imagery,
we concoct bits of his glory.
A glimpse into his infinite beauty.

We write songs, lyrics and melodies.
We compose concerto, notes and chords.
We paint pictures, beauty and imagery.

We are God’s artist.
Wholly committed to his heartbeat.

It’s not about me, but all about him.


    Sing to the LORD a new song; 
       sing to the LORD, all the earth. Psalm 96:1


Dorian Gray

My first encounter with Dorian Gray is while listening to James Blunt’s Tears and Rain.

Out of curiousity I went to find out more about this Dorian Gray and I realize he is a character from Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray.

Till now, this remain my most favourite book from Oscar Wilde.

Summary of the story

What intrigue me is how on the outside Dorian Gray retains his beauty but his portraits (which reflects his truth self)  ages and become uglier and uglier. Oscar Wilde is truly talented to portray such hypocrisy of man along with fear,guilt and ugliness.

I am just thinking, if we live life like spiritual Dorian Grays, the end point would be tragic. To appear glorious on the outside but ebbing on the inside.

Thank God, the bible offers another way of life

“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.”2 Corinthians 4:16

Hedonism has no end, because the carnality of man knows no limit nor satisfaction.

Interested readers can borrow the book from me.

Pretty heavy book that touches on hedonism and homosexuality, only recommended for the mature.
