This album is the first step of the new Coldplay's musicality changes, although their fans prefer Coldplay's previous album that has genre rock alternative. The songs in the album also sounds a little bit crowded with electro effects combined with rock instruments on some songs.

Song of the day.

If you feel so dumped, so deeply sad, like no one cares about you and your whole life turned so blue, you must listening to this song. For me the lyrics are uplifting, make people who lost their sprit feel re-excited again.

So, here it is. 
One of the song that includes of album "Yes!" that released in this year, 3 things by Jason Mraz. Enjoy:)

"3 Things"

There are three things I do when my life falls apart
Number one I cry my eyes out and dry up my heart
Not until I do this will my new life start
So that’s the first thing that I do when my life falls apart.

Oh, the second thing I do is I close both of my eyes
And say my thank-yous to each and every moment of my life.
I go where I know the love is and let it fill me up inside
Gathering new strength from sorrow,
I’m glad to be alive.

Things are looking up
I know above the clouds the sun is shining
Things are looking up
Love is still the answer I'm relying
Three little things
Things are looking up

The third t…


Tidak ada Bulan hari ini. Tidak ada Bulan kemarin. Aku sendiri dan tidak berada di sini
Semua orang adalah orang lain
Kupeluk tubuh sendiri Tambah sepi, tambah hampa
Malam apalagi
Aku membenci. Diriku dari segala. 
Ah! Lemah lesu tersedu mematikan mata lampu
Jendela terbuka
dan kenangan memasukiku sebagai angin
Mengingatkanku pada tabahnya hujan bulan Juni
dirahasiakannya rintik rindunya
kepada pohon berbunga itu
sepertinya halnya aku, mencintaimu dengan sederhana;
dengan isyarat yang tak sempat disampaikan awan kepada hujan yang menjadikannya tiada.
Semua perihal diciptakan sebagai batas
Membelah sesuatu dari sesuatu yang lain
Hari ini membelah membatasi besok dan kemarin
Besok batas hari ini dan lusa
Lalu spasi jarak dan urusan dunia memisahkan kau dan aku. dan pada suatu hari nanti impianku pun tak dikenal lagi namun di sela-sela huruf sajak ini kau takkan letih-letihnya kucari.
