Yay! Did you see the post from Yoshi?! Finally a response! Too bad it’s such a short post u_u. Thank you for finally posting, Yoshi-kun! And I hope you’ll continue posting often, instead of having me here all alone having to take care of this blog all alone ;_;. Hmmm, I wonder if Nami-chan‘s going to post any time soon… •___•{…]

Moving on… At the moment I’m trying to learn a seemingly simple piano piece. It’s the piano piece for “Love Song” by Sara Bareilles. [Listen to the song below]

It’s a pretty nice song, but what I really like about it specifically, is the cool, simple piano chords. See, I’m no pianist, but I feel that one should always have a few memorized songs that he/she knows how to play on the piano, just so that he/she doesn’t look “un-musical”@_@.

OK, so although I’m a guitarist (although I’m nowhere near an expert) and I know a lot about music (since my dad’s a big-time musician), I’m not very gifted on the piano T_T. But dispite this, I still think that it’s important to know some songs on the piano so I can seem impressive on that instrument too^. ~.

Anyway, so that’s why when I heard this song, and the piano part seemed simple, but still somewhat impressive, I decided to do my best to try and learn that piece. So that’s something that I’m currently working on at the moment. Of course I needed some good help in order for my clumsy self to actually learn a piece like this u.u. That’s why I found this video (below) on Youtube , which is a really helpful tool in learning this song. So now I already know all the notes, all I have to do is practice.

So, to all who would like to learn this song too, you may make use of this video. You know what? Since I’m in a good mood ^_^, I’ll also post the lyrics to the song just in case anyone would like to sing it.

Head under water
And you tell me
To breathe easy for awhile
The breathing gets harder
Even I know that
Made room for me
It’s too soon to see
If I’m happy in your hands
I’m unusually hard to hold on to

Blank stares at blank pages
No easy way to say this
You mean well but you make this hard on me

I’m not gonna write you a love song
Cause you ask for it
Cause you need one
You see, I’m not gonna write you a long song
Cause you tell me it’s make or breakin’ this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leavin’
I’m gonna need a better reason
To write you a love song
Today
Today..

I learned the hard way
That they all say
Things you wanna hear
My heavy heart sinks deep down under
You and Your twisted words
Your help just hurts
You are not what I thought you were
Hello to high and dry

Convinced me to please you
Made me think that I need this too
I’m trying to let you hear me as I am

I’m not gonna write you a love song
Cause you asked for it
Cause you need one
You see, I’m not gonna write you a love song
Cause you tell me it’s make or breakin’ this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If all you have is leavin’
I’m gonna need a better reason
To write you a love song today

Promise me
You’ll leave the light on
To help me see
The daylight my guide, gone
Cause I believe
There’s a way
You can love me
Because I say

I won’t write you a love song
Cause you ask for it
Cause you need one
You see, I’m not gonna write you a love song
Cause you tell me it’s make or breakin’ this
Is that why you wanted a love song?
Cause you asked for it
Cause you need one
You see I’m not gonna write you a love song
Cause you tell me it’s make or breakin this
If you’re on your way
I’m not gonna write you to stay
If your heart is nowhere in it
I don’t want it for a minute
Babe, I walk the seven seas
When I believe that there’s a reason to write you a love song
Today.
Today..

OK, um, I’m not sure those lyrics are all right… I hope so. If not, comment and let me know, I’ll edit the mistakes.

Hey! Speaking of learning music. Yoshi asked me to teach him some guitar skills today o.o… I’m not sure I’m the best teacher, but I guess I’ll try my best. Who knows, maybe he’ll even be able to outplay me someday… but as long as I’m his guitar sensei, I’ll have to make sure that doesn’t happen ^_-.

I gotta go now. But let me know, what instruments do you play, if any and if not which would you like to learn? Can you sing? Sachi-chan can sing, but only in her shower. -___- *LOL*

Sayounara~!
