Day 29: What Are Words

Chris Medina.  If you watched the audition phase of this year’s American Idol, chances are, you are one of the people who felt sympathy for this man and his fiancée/girlfriend, Juliana Ramos.

I don’t want to go into a full-blast detail of his story since, well, this is not a Chris Medina post.

Anyways, when Chris got eliminated in idol–even before he got to the live shows, he was given a recording contract worth $29000.  It’s a good deal considering he wasn’t even part of the top 24.  And then, weeks (or months later), Chris releases his first single, which also happens to be our song for today, entitled: What Are Words.

This is another love song but not a sappy one.  It actually fits Chris Medina perfectly and the song tells about how a man should be, how love should be, and how words are meaningless if you don’t mean what you say and say what you mean.  Granted, the song is a bit boring and Chris isn’t actually as good as the other Idol finalists but I chose this song not because of the singer, but because of what the song says.

Most people say things–make promises–that they forget as soon as the bad times hit or as soon as something comes between him/her and the person he/she has made a promise with.  And I think this song speaks about that.

Anyways, below are the lyrics to the song.  Until the next post, dream on; fly on!

Anywhere you are, I am near
Anywhere you go, I’ll be there
Anytime you whisper my name, you’ll see
How every single promise I keep
Cuz what kind of guy would I be
If I was to leave when you need me most

What are words
If you really don’t mean them
When you say them
What are words
If they’re only for good times
Then they don’t
When it’s love
Yeah, you say them out loud
Those words, They never go away
They live on, even when we’re gone

And I know an angel was sent just for me
And I know I’m meant to be where I am
And I’m gonna be
Standing right beside her tonight

And I’m gonna be by your side
I would never leave when she needs me most

What are words
If you really don’t mean them
When you say them
What are words
If they’re only for good times
Then they don’t
When it’s love
Yeah, you say them out loud
Those words, They never go away
They live on, even when we’re gone

Anywhere you are, I am near
Anywhere you go, I’ll be there
And I’m gonna be here forever more
Every single promise I keep
Cuz what kind of guy would I be
If I was to leave when you need me most

I’m forever keeping my angel close
