Musical Monday: Secrets by OneRepublic

Yeah, I’m still elated over the OneRepublic concert my daughter and I attended a few weeks ago. The cello, one of my favorite musical instruments, is featured in many of their songs.  Brent Kutzle performed a cello solo during the concert and I could’ve listened to it all night.

The song Secrets begins with a sample of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1. These guys are incredibly talented. Enjoy.

 

“Secrets”
I need another story
Something to get off my chest
My life gets kinda boring
Need something that I can confess

‘Til all my sleeves are stained red
From all the truth that I’ve said
Come by it honestly I swear
Thought you saw me wink, no
I’ve been on the brink, so

Tell me what you want to hear
Something that will light those ears
Sick of all the insincere
So I’m gonna give all my secrets away

This time don’t need another perfect lie
Don’t care if critics ever jump in line
I’m gonna give all my secrets away

My God, amazing how we got this far
It’s like we’re chasing all those stars
Who’s driving shiny big black cars
And everyday I see the news
All the problems that we could solve
And when a situation rises
Just write it into an album
Send it straight to gold
But I don’t really like my flow, no, so

Tell me what you want to hear
Something that will light those ears
Sick of all the insincere
So I’m gonna give all my secrets away

This time, don’t need another perfect lie
Don’t care if critics ever jump in line
I’m gonna give all my secrets away

Oh, got no reason, got no shame
Got no family I can blame
Just don’t let me disappear
I’ma tell you everything

So tell me what you want to hear
Something that will light those ears
Sick of all the insincere
So I’m gonna give all my secrets away

This time, don’t need another perfect lie
Don’t care if critics ever jump in line
I’m gonna give all my secrets away

So tell me what you want to hear
Something that will light those ears
Sick of all the insincere
So I’m gonna give all my secrets away

This time, don’t need another perfect lie
Don’t care if critics ever jump in line
I’m gonna give all my secrets away
All my secrets away, all my secrets away

Musical Monday: Love Runs Out by OneRepublic

I recently took my nine-year-old daughter to see OneRepublic. When it appeared the concert was over she turned to me and said, “But they can’t be done! They haven’t played Love Runs Out!” I smiled and told her to be patient.

The band didn’t disappoint. A few minutes later the familiar beat of one of her favorite songs echoed throughout the amphitheater and she squealed with delight.

“Love Runs Out”

I’ll be your light, your match, your burning sun,
I’ll be the bright, in black that’s makin’ you run.
And we’ll feel alright, and we’ll feel alright,
‘Cause we’ll work it out, yeah we’ll work it out.I’ll be doin’ this, if you had a doubt,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.I’ll be your ghost, your game, your stadium.
I’ll be your fifty-thousand clapping like one.
And I feel alright, and I feel alright,
‘Cause I worked it out, yeah I worked it out.I’ll be doin’ this, if you had a doubt,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.

I got my mind made up, man, I can’t let go.
I’m killing every second ’til it saves my soul.
(Ooh) I’ll be running, (Ooh) I’ll be running,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.
And we’ll start a fire, and we’ll shut it down,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.

There’s a maniac out in front of me.
Got an angel on my shoulder, and Mephistopheles.
but mama raised me good, mama raised me right.
Mama said, “Do what you want, say prayers at night,”
And I’m saying them, ’cause I’m so devout.
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out, yeah.

I got my mind made up, man, I can’t let go.
I’m killing every second ’til it saves my soul.
(Ooh) I’ll be running, (Ooh) I’ll be running,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.
And we’ll start a fire, and we’ll shut it down,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.

Oh, we all want the same thing.
Oh, we all run for something.
run for God, for fate,
For love, for hate,
For gold, for rust,
For diamonds, for dust.

I’ll be your light, your match, your burning sun,
I’ll be the bright, in black that’s makin’ you run.

I got my mind made up, man, I can’t let go.
I’m killing every second ’til it saves my soul.
(Ooh) I’ll be running, (Ooh) I’ll be running,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.
And we’ll start a fire, and we’ll shut it down,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.

I’ll be your light, your match, your burning sun,
I’ll be the bright, in black that’s makin’ you run.
And we’ll feel alright, and we’ll feel alright,
‘Cause we’ll work it out, yes, we’ll work it out.
And we’ll start a fire, and we’ll shut it down,
‘Til the love runs out, ’til the love runs out.
‘Til the love runs out.
