Steve



Just wanted to share this music video of All American Boy by Steve Grand. Not because I find the artist very attractive, but I actually like the music. Ok, I find the artist attractive too hihihi...

I think I have my own all-pinoy boy version too...

I fought with who I was for most of my life. In every way a young person can fight with himself. 
But starting today… I’m laying it out there. I’m done playing it safe. ~ Steve

Check his site here: http://stevegrand.bandcamp.com/

See lyrics of the song below:

All-American Boy


VERSE 1
Ripped Jeans, only drinks whiskey
I find him by the fire while his girl was getting frisky, ohh
I say we go this road tonight


He smiles, his arms around her
but his eyes are holdin me, just a captive to his wonder, ohh
I say we go this road tonight


PRE-CHORUS now I know that that's your girl, I mean no disrespect
The way that shirt hugs you chest boy, I just won't forget
I'll be sittin here, drinking my whiskey
I won't say goodnight unless I think ya might miss me, ohh


CHORUS Be my All-American boy tonight
where everyday's the 4th of July
and it's alright, alright
And we can keep this up till the morning light
and you can hold me deep in your eyes
and it's alright, alright
be my, be my
my All-American boy


VERSE 2
Ripped jeans, tight shirt
he lights a cigarette you know I'm glad that she can't stand it, ohh
I drink the moonlight from his eyes


Now hold there, just a moment
I want to take this in now we don't need no photo of it, no
we should go this road tonight


PRE-CHORUS 2 now I know that that's your girl, and I don't give a damn
she's been cusin and cryin, she don't know what she has
so I'll be sittin here, tryin to hold down my whiskey,
you tell your girl good night cause somebody'd like to kiss me, ohh


CHORUS
Be my All-American boy tonight
where everyday's the 4th of July
and it's alright, alright
And we can keep this up till the morning light
and you can hold me deep in your eyes
and it's alright, alright
be my, be my
my All-American boy


BRIDGE:
Of all the girls and boys to look my way
Ain't nobody ever hit me this way
so won't you come back with me
and lay with me a while


I'm gonna wrestle you out of them clothes,
leave that beautiful body exposed,
and you can have my heart and my soul and my body...
just be mine


GUITAR SOLO

DOWN CHORUS
Be my All-American boy tonight
baby you light my fire
it's gonna be alright, alright!

CHORUS Be my All-American boy tonight
where everyday's the 4th of July
and it's alright, alright
And we can keep this up till the morning light
and you can hold me deep in your eyes
and it's alright, alright
be my, be my...
just, be my, be my...
my All-American boy

Restart

I am now convinced that life always gives us a chance to start over again, that you just have to try and gulp down your fears.

It’s been a year and a half since I have no work. I spent most of my time traveling and spending way too much time with myself – which I deserved. I also spent way too much of my savings which, by the way, are almost depleted.

I decided to quit my job before because I felt back then that I am losing myself. That I slowly forgot what I want and what my priorities are. I was so focus with work that left me almost no time for myself. I felt exhausted. I felt alone. And I felt so lonely.

Last month, I thought that I am happy now and that I am ready to go back to work. But I was a little worried because I have been out of work for more than a year now and that will be a big factor for companies to consider.

Another reason why I wanted to go back to work and have a stable income is three on my siblings are still in school. If I only think of myself then I could still stay jobless as long as I want to. And my mom will eventually grow old and I have to consider that too.

I opened up with my partner about my plan of going back to work and was told to try it.

I applied to three different companies. The first one was not successful because they wanted me for another position, which will force me to start from scratch. That was not an option for me. The next two, however, offered me a job.

I was happy but at the same time kind of sad because I was already got used to the lifestyle I had na paraket-raket lang. That the only time I got stressed out is when the bills are due and that happens once a month lang. But I am ready.

I am glad that I took the risk of leaving my previous job to spend more time for myself. And I am glad that I tried looking for a job and that I was given another chance to restart.

Third

Happy 3rd anniversary to us!

I love you, I still do. I haven’t gotten up since the day I fell for you. I don’t want to. You have no idea I love you “this” much.

Thank you for understanding me. Thank you for being there for me. Thank you for sticking up with me and fighting for me - for us. And thank you for loving me back and showing you really care.
