What Are Words

From: United States California San Diego @JoyFly Time : 2016-06-03 23:45:45

The song below really touched my heart—because of its background. I wanna share this beautiful song. 



"What Are Words" is a hit song written by Rodney Jerkins, Andre Lindal and Lauren Christy, and performed by American singer Chris Medina. It was released on February 25, 2011, the day after his surprising elimination on the reality TV show American Idol. The song is a tribute to his fiancée who suffered a brain injury as the result of a car wreck and is about promises, commitment and keeping your word.



On the day after his elimination, February 25, 2011, "What Are Words," recorded for Simon Cowell's record label 19 Recordings, was released worldwide. Medina stated publicly the song is about his fiancée, Juliana Ramos, who suffered a brain injury as the result of a serious car accident on October 2, 2009, two months before they were to be married, and the storyline was heavily used during his American Idol tryout, even being brought on the show to emphasize the powerful nature of the song. (Medina has since admitted publicly that Ramos had been drinking, driving erratically as well as texting, and as a result the accident was her fault.) As of mid 2014, Ramos and Medina are no longer a couple, but they will "forever be soul-mates".



Anywhere you are, I am near,



Anywhere you go, I'll be there,

Anytime you whisper my name,

You'll see,

Every single promise I'll 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're done,

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 will say

Just for me and I know I'm meant,

To be where I am and I'm gonna be,

Standin' 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're done,

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 there forever more,



Every single promise I'll 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.



P.S.  If there exists a man who can not only sing it but also do it for me, I will definitely marry him...no kidding!!!

Men like what they see
Women like what they hear
That's why women wear make-up
And men lie (rofl)

Thank you for sharing, read this song reminds me of 《The Kite Runner》 inside Hassan said the phrase "for you, a thousand times over."
Good and evil parallel world, there is a really willing to "for you, a thousand times" people? If there is such a person, that I, but also the same for you a thousand times?

(谢谢你的分享,看了这首歌,让我想起《追风筝的人》里面的哈桑说的那句“为你,千千万万遍”,善恶并行的世界,真的存在一个愿意“为你千千万万遍”的人吗?若真的有这样的人,那个我,也同样的愿意为你千千万万遍吗?)

Paul, I agree except women lie better and far more often than men, it all starts with the make-up! LOL

JoyFly- decent lyrics, nice inventive thoughts. Hmmm drinking, texting while driving causing erratic swerving then crash causing brain trauma, he is best rid of this woman. Sounds like a great anti driving while drunk and texting poster child.

I can sing quite well but I am taken...lol

@paulfox1

omg...that's true for the Most...

However, there is an exception as I knew => I don't wear make-up, so that I am looking for another exception => a man who does NOT lie......if existed......(dance)

"If there is such a person...?"

---Who knows?

There are lots of love stories in fairy tales, movies, novels, songs,..., etc. ==> but they are all fictions!

Sure, there is no "perfections" in this world... We'd better look for someone who is most compatible with "me" in all ways---spiritually & emotionally & physically. Well, that's easy to say but hard to find still.

Thank you for sharing! (f)

I believe there are millions of people can sing that song (me too)..........but I doubt how many of those can DO it.

Men will give a relationship to get sex, and women will give sex to get a relationship. In other words, men lie because often women reward the lie with sex. It should be obvious how a woman can easily avoid all the lying scum.

@JoyFly

谢谢你的关注!(coffee)(f)(music)
你已经在美国了???在加利福尼亚圣地牙哥?既然你已经站在那片土地上了!就不要着急,你看起来还很年轻,英语又熟练,慢慢来.......通过学习和打工......
你说的很对:that's easy to say but hard to find still,就是找到了还要细心呵护.........
我在2009年,自由行一个人去过纽约、 西雅图、拉斯维加斯! 美国的确是一个文化大熔炉、是一个多棱镜......
祝你好运!加油!
端午节快乐!

@Kittyzx2015

I am a happy single (maybe forever)......just try to find some "platonic" friends may go travel together sometime----I need a body-guard...8)
If I were a boy, I would have traveled all over the world by myself.

If you travel to San Diego someday, I can be your guide here.

Thank you for your good wishes! Good luck to you! 端午节快乐! (angel)

San Diego is a beautiful environment, pleasant climate place!
Single means that you have unlimited possibilities .....

@kalzorch

Why Men and Women Cant be friends------good topic!

That's why it is very hard to find "platonic" friends => guys are too greedy...always want more than friendship...from gals.

When I told a young guy who was going after me, "you can be my friend & brother", then he got mad & said, "No! I want you be mine!" OMG, that broke our friendship...what a pity!

@Kittyzx2015

"Single means that you have unlimited possibilities ....." ------ I like it!

San Diego has the best weather---sunny & warm & clean---I haven't seen a mosquito here...that's why I love it...(inlove)

I like keeping dreams as dreams since I would have new dreams if old dreams came true...

Good luck!:)

@JoyFly, if your happily single then you should be a friendship connection site, not a site dedicated to bringing men and women together for the potential of marriage don't you think? In one way I am glad you chose this site as I get get to read your amusing viewpoints. I do however think there is a man(not me) here who is interested in you as he keeps kissing your proverbial butt to get your attention lol

Being single has its advantages but at the end of the day we all want to be loved and share a life together. Loneliness can be a real downer in one's life.

I am curious and I hope you will not mind me asking this and that you will take time to answer my question as follows:

If you are in the States already, why are you on a dating site when you have plenty of men to choose from in San Diego already?

By the way being a woman is no reason to not travel all over the world alone, I know many women who have done so. Don't use gender as an excuse not to go after a dream of seeing the world

Cheers...
