I’m Older Now

I know that every song on the album sounds like a relationship song, But there are more to relationships than just ones between a man and a woman. 

Track 4 from the EP “Where To Begin
Words & Music by Noella Choi (CASH)

…………………………………………………………………

…………………………………………………………………

I’m older now.
But I don’t feel much smarter than 
5 years ago.
I should know.

All that I’ve learned
Still I fear I’ll make the same
mistakes again.
It never ends.

Now I just go on
as if nothing is wrong.
A lie I tell myself.
The pain and regrets
They won’t let me be.

When I think of you,
I’m right back at the very start
when we were young
and just begun. 

Though time has gone by
But it doesn’t change a thing.
We tried our best.
We had our chance.

Now I just go on
as if nothing is wrong.
A lie I tell myself.
The pain and regrets
They won’t let me be.

Tell me…
It’s over now… oh…
It’s over now…

I’m older now.
But I don’t feel much smarter than 
5 years ago.
But I should know.

Now I just go on
as if nothing is wrong.
A lie I tell myself.
The pain and regrets
They won’t let me be.

Let me be…
But only time will tell
When the pain and regrets
will ever let me be.

Perfect

The Red in the sky’s gazing down
with its mighty eye.
We rise and set
as the story unfolds in our minds
feeling so surreal

inside

I can change but I still won’t be perfect.
I’ll never know what I’ve got ‘til it’s gone.
Sift the sands through my life.
When the glass is empty what will I find?

We yearn for the throne
that was raise in the air.
It’ll fall and desert us all.
Like a myth, it’s a guise
for perfection can never be

outside

You can change but you still won’t be perfect.
You’ll never know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone.
Sift the sands through your life.
And although the glass is filled
you thirst for something more.

Oh What seem so wrong?
We are always seeking whether to truth is here
where beauty lies within these pieces of our lives.

We know it’s right though we try.
We can change but we still won’t be perfect.
We’ll never know what we’ve got ‘til it’s gone.
Sift the sands through our lives.
And although the glass is filled
you thirst for something more.

We can change but we still won’t be perfect.
We’ll never know what we’ve got ‘til it’s gone.
Sift the sands through our lives.
When the glass is empty what will I find inside?

Inside.
Inside.

快樂人 (Happy People)

"Originally written as a commercial jingle for ‘Platform2 Restaurant.’ Basically it’s about living in the moment and enjoying life. Lyrics were written by my dad."

每天如所願 快樂自由你我識享受
偶因煩瑣事 知心好友我你傾心訴

與君情雙悅 快樂自由你我識遷就
放開繁瑣事 知心好友我你開心透
晚霞 雪夜浪漫 雨中散步 快樂人
秒秒想見他 天天相對暢快心花放

每天同心願 創造未來我倆不守舊
決心齊闖蕩 天生一對愛笑心開朗
晚霞 雪夜浪漫 雨中散步 快樂人
四季轉眼間 高聲歡笑暢快添新歲

每天如所願 快樂自由你我識享受
偶因煩瑣事 知心好友我你傾心訴
晚霞 雪夜浪漫 雨中散步 快樂人
你我碰上他 淺斟低嚼暢快心花放

晚霞 雪夜浪漫 雨中散步 快樂人
你我碰上他 淺斟低嚼暢快心花放
淺斟低嚼暢快心花放

Stranded

I didn’t choose this life. It chose me instead.
I’ve been here so long I can’t remember who I am.
But I still linger here. Caught in this place
walking the same old path I’ve always tread
to nowhere. I’ve gone nowhere.

The wind is always changing
I’m stranded in my shame
I don’t know how to go
When this is all I’ve ever known.

I’ve made excuses for mistakes that I’ve done.
Now I refuse to be that someone
that I’ve become.

The wind is always changing
I’m clinging here in vain
I don’t know to let go
‘Cause this is all I’ve ever known.

The wind is always waiting
to sweep me through the rain
I’ll go deepen inside
what I’ve learned to live with all my life.
The choice is mine.

I’m fumbling in the dark to see the
horizon in sight
Guided by stars, I’ll weather through this fight
I’ll be there, I know I’ll be there.

The wind is always changing
I won’t be stuck in vain
there’s still a long way to go
to learn all the things I’ve never known.

The wind is always waiting
to sweep me through the rain
I’ll go deepen inside
learned how to live my life.
The choice is mine.

Crossroads

Here I am 
Standing at the crossroads
Wondering where to go 
If I leave here 
How will I know which is the right way?

The world is spinning so fast 
And I’m just holding on to your hand 
'Cause I'm scared to let go 
And what if I can’t find the way alone?

I can’t go back 
The darkness had swallowed the path 
That lead me here. 
I wish I could 
Stay here with you forever.

But the world is spinning so fast 
And I’m just holding on to your hand 
'Cause I'm scared to let go 
And what if I can’t find the way alone?

I feel your hand slipping away 
I fear I’ll fall further each day 
If I stand here 
Waiting for moments to come to me.

But the world is spinning so fast 
And I’m just holding on to your hand 
'Cause I'm scared to let go 
And what if I can’t find the way alone?

Impossible

"We all have those impossible people in our lives, but we still love them. This is still one of my favourites. I can really rock out with raw emotions when I sing it."

I have told you many times
Why can’t you listen when I say?
You just go on spinning your stories
Like a broken record playing all day long.
Can’t you sing another song?

I have tried so many times
But you get angry easily.
And amid all the frustration
Well we say things we know we don’t mean to say.
But we say it anyway.

(Are you listening?)
I, oh, I feel I’ve disappeared.
Now I don’t know where to go from here.
Why do you make it?
Why do you make it
So Impossible?
Impossible to love you.

Now we’re sitting here in silence
Wondering how it got this far.
We could feed ourselves the lies we tell each other
But we know we are both to blame.
Things are not the same.

(Are you listening?)
I, oh, I feel I’ve disappeared.
Now I don’t know where to go from here.
Why do you make it?
Why do you make it
So Impossible?
Impossible to love you.

[SOLO]

(Are you listening?)
I, oh, I feel I’ve disappeared.
Now I don’t know where to go from here.
Why do you make it?
Why do you make it
So Impossible?
Impossible to love you.
To love you now.

I have have told you many times now
“I love you.”

You

"The first song I wrote solely on guitar. I cringe now when I listen to it!"

Aren’t you tired of running ‘round in circles
Just keeping things together
For everyone else
But you’ve come undone yourself
Trying to tie the loose ends
And you think that no one will touch your dirty hands.

All you seem to see is
Everybody else’s point of view
Don’t you know that it’s no use?
‘Cause they’re all reflections
Just distortions of the truth.
Take a look inside of you.

So you spend your time and given over
Yourself to make them happy
But you’re just spent and
No one even cares
That you’ve surrendered so much
Oh, but you’ll still never be good enough.

All you seem to see is
Everybody else’s point of view
Don’t you know that it’s no use
‘Cause they’re all reflections
Just distortions of the truth
Take a look inside you’ll see

What I mean
If only you’ll believe
That you don’t have to measure your worth
to be loved
to be loved

Shattered dreams you have been walking on
Already scarred your soul
Take a piece and cut yourself loose
Free from this tangled mess
Oh, it’s time you find who you are
And be nothing less

All you seem to see is
Everybody else’s point of view
Don’t you know that it’s no use
‘Cause they’re all reflections
Just distortions of the truth
Take a closer look and you’ll see

All you seem to see is
Everyone’s point of view
Is that who you want to be?
‘Cause they’re all reflections
Just distortions of the truth
Take a look inside of you.

Moving On

I tried to call
But you just pretend that you weren’t there
You say you’re tired
And you don’t have to answer to me at all

There must be something driving you away
But you say you’re just moving on
Your bags are weighing heavily I came
To help but you were already gone

CHORUS:
This is the life you chose to live
One mistake you can’t forgive
You’re holding on, holding in
You shut me out and locked yourself
Safe inside but I can tell You’ve already given in

Give me a chance
I’ll listen to whatever you have to say
But you pretend
And go on as if everything’s okay

You’ve made it hard so you don’t have to feel
But now you are turning to stone
And everything you touch doesn’t seem real
You’ll have to face it all on your own

[repeat CHORUS]

And you know it
But you wanted it this way
Still you can’t forget or let it go
You’ll only fool
No one but yourself

There must be something driving you away
But you say you’re just moving on
Your bags are weighing heavily I came
To help but you’re already gone

[repeat CHORUS x2]

Give me a chance
Don’t tell me you’re just moving on.

Taken

You lied to me
I wanted so much to believe in you
That I couldn’t see
You’ve taken every piece of me

I’m sinking into something deep
I try to swim but there’s something tugging at my feet
The water’s cold and i need to breathe
But you just keep on pulling me further down
‘Til I’m crawling on the ground
I feel like I could drown in your

Lies to me
I wanted to much to believe in you
That I couldn’t see
You’ve taken every piece of me

You know I would’ve given you
All that you wanted you only had to ask me to
I’ve had enough I can hardly breathe
I’m taking back what belongs to me
You can’t touch me now!
Can’t hurt me now, No!

Yeah you lied to me
I wanted so much to believe in you
That I couldn’t see
You’ve taken every piece of me
Oh, you lied to me
Why did you lie to me?
I couldn’t see
But now I’m taking what belongs, oh, to me
