Music Video Of The Week - Beautiful Day


This MV came into my mind as I was driving on the highway from JB last Sunday. It was indeed a beautiful day. =D






The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There's no room
No space to rent in this town

You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not moving anywhere

You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace

It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of her imagination

You love this town
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you

It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out

It was a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
Beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach me
I know I'm not a hopeless case

What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
Don't need it now
Was a beautiful day

Hi Danial, hey, I love the pics of your JB trip. So different to my time back in the 70s and 80s.
Used to drive to JB via Malacca, Muar, Batu Pahat, Young peng, do a pit stop for my usual iced coffee, maybe beli tu pineapples give to friends in Singapore.

Hey, don't tell me you drive satu tangan, other hand klik the pics? Ha ha ha. Be careful, ya.....
Good camera you have, very clear shots too.

Danial, I take this opportunity to wish you and all at home selamat hari raya.
You have fun, don't fool around with that bamboo canon, ha ha ha.
See you when you return. Drive safe, ya!
Lee.

UNCLE LEE! thanks for visiting my blog. yes, i wonder how people can stand the long distance traveling via the small towns. my dad used to drive on the old road from KL to Penang just to go for a date or two with my mom back then haha.

hehe, as you can see Uncle Lee, I was driving on the left lane, so I was driving really slow while taking those pictures, hence the clear pictures. thanks, all credit goes to the new phone I got 2 weeks ago =D

Thanks a lot Uncle lee for the well wishes. nowadays i think it's quite rare to hear the familiar sound of that bamboo canon, heh.

You take care too Uncle Lee! =D
