FRIEND OF PAIN

Million Miles Away
Joey Albert

I'd love to make you mine

'Cause it's the only way to hold you
In my wild imagination
Still I don't know how
To grab a chance and spend some time in just
A simple conversation

Chorus:
Just give it a try
Though I'm not chasing rainbows in the sky
I wanna hold you in my dreams
And make believe that it's true
Although I know, I know
That it's impossible to do
' Cause you're a star
People love you as you are
You're a million miles away from me

Wish that you were here
'Cause it's illusions everytime you're close to me
And sing me love songs
And it's the only way I could tell the world I love you
Although you're a million miles away
Chorus 2: Just give it a try

Though I'm not chasing rainbows in the sky
I wanna hold you in my dreams
And make believe that it's true
Although I know, I know
That it's impossible to do
'Cause you're a star
You're a star You're a star
You're a million miles away from me


I'm a sucker for sentimental pieces. These days what's helping me cope with stress is learning new chords and singing till I bleed. Interestingly, I feel light and rejuvinated each time. I wonder is that normal at all? I was having migraine attack for almost a week. And what ended it was when I got my guitar and learned Joey Albert's Million Miles Away. I was so happy to learn the song and I played and sang it the whole day, while Abe and I were alone to ourselves.

They say that if you want to stay focused and positive in your life, you have to stop listening to songs that tell of madness. But as for me, it works when I listen to these crap, as others may call it. I don't know if that has something to do with being self-proclaimed manic-depressive, loner, pain-addict. But being like this has allowed me to be a friend to many. And I thank God for it. I thank him for giving me the opportunity to share his love even if that means being constantly broken.

Most of my friends right now are going through difficult situations. Problems and concerns that leave them helpless and in despair. Everday, I listen to them, give them words to hang on to, feel their pain, their anguish, their complaints, even their anger. I stay strong and steadfast for them, but sometimes I fail. Because I, too, got my own cross to carry. I, too, got my own fears. Although that really doesnt keep me from being the peer counsellor that I believe I was made to be. In dissecting other poeple's pain, I get the chance to look deeper into myself, too, and discover hidden strength needed for a lifelong journey.


Very important PS: I really want to get the right chords to this song. I've looked up the internet to no avail. So if by chance you guys happen to come across any hope for me...*wink!wink!wink!*

waaaaaaaah...at least kabalo ka mag gitara kag mag tukar sang piano. Pa hampasa lang ko sang drums di lang gitara kag piano..LOL...

sige i try ko pangitaon ang iya na chords..ehehe..basi pa lang.

kung me migraine attack ka kuno, inom ka lang damo na tubig kay ang isa ka main cause is basi hydrated ikaws. kag shempfre cool yourself off and try to relax even though at times its not that possible but we gotta do what we goottaa do.

keep it up, playing a guitar is something to relieve your stress and a way to keep you out from other negativities.

muah!
