Perfect Two
Written by: Auburn
Produced by: Jonathan "J.R" Rotem
Chords by Jonathan Keys

Lyrics:

Verse1

You can be the peanut butter to my jelly.
You can be the butterflies i feel in my belly.
You can can be the captain
and i can be your first mate.
You can be the chills that i feel on our first date.

You can be the hero
and i can be your side kick.
You can be the tear
that i cry if we ever split.
You can be the rain from the cloud when its storming'
or u can be the sun when it shines in the morning'.

B section

Don't know if i could ever be
Without you cause boy you complete me.
And in time i know that we'll both see
that we're all we need.

Cause your the apple to my pie.
Your the straw to my berry.
Your the smoke to my high.
And your the one i wanna marry.

Chorus

Cause your the one for me (for me)
and I'm the one for you (for u)
You take the both of us (of us)
And were the Perfect Two.

Were the perfect two.
Were the perfect two.
Baby me and you,
were the Perfect Two.


Verse 2

You can be the prince and i can be your princess.
You can be the sweet tooth i can be the dentist.
You can be the shoes and i can be the laces.
You can be the heart that i spill on the pages.

You can be the vodka and i can be the chaser.
You can be the pencil and i can be the paper.
You can be as cold as the winter weather,
but i don't care as long as were together.

B section

Don't know if i could ever be
Without you cause boy you complete me.
And in time i know that we'll both see
that we're all we need.

Cause your the apple to my pie.
Your the straw to my berry.
Your the smoke to my high.
And your the one i wanna marry.

Chorus

Cause your the one for me (for me)
and I'm the one for you (for u)
You take the both of us (of us)
And were the Perfect Two.

Were the perfect two.
Were the perfect two.
Baby me and you,
were the Perfect Two.

Bridge

You know that ill never doubt ya'.
And you know that i think about ya'.
And you know i cant live without ya'

I love the way that u smile.
And maybe in just a while
i can see me walk down the aisle.

Chorus

Cause your the one for me (for me)
and I'm the one for you (for u)
You take the both of us (of us)
And were the Perfect Two.

Were the perfect two.
Were the perfect two.
Baby me and you,
were the Perfect Two.

Wow! I feel so blessed to be able to attend the YFC camp :)
Thank you Lord! You gave me such an amazing experience! The camp gave me a new outlook on life. It opened my eyes to our Lord's graciousness and love. Everyone there was wonderful and kind and very close to each other. Yay! It was fun! (lol... I'm too sleepy to think of anything right now. XD)

Thank you Lord for giving me a new family and for that may God be praised! :D

God is good! All the time!
All the time! God is good!
God is where? Everywhere!
Everywhere! God is there!

Going around Southend.

0 comments
I had a meeting today with an employee of the organization that I want to volunteer in and I ended up cycling around Southend and being lost somewhere along the way. I finally appreciate the GPS ability of my phone! Without it I would have been wondering around for hours somewhere. haha.

Hmmm... so to make it easier here's a map (courtesy of google maps and CS2):
The starting point was my house at 1:00 pm, but my house is a secret so let's start at Point A, which is the high street. I then cycled to Point B (The Southend Leisure and Tennis Centre) where I met up with Ms T to talk about the tales of being a volunteer and all that jazz. After my meeting with Ms T, I went to the nearby Mc Donalds to eat :)

I opted for a slightly healthier option which was the Chicken supreme burger w/ a lot of lettuce. I wasn't able to finish the whole meal so I asked a kind employee for a take away bag. When I have had enough rest, I wondered if I should go back the way I came from or take the long way down Hamstel Road (the road highlighted in blue after Eastern Ave) and Southchurch Road. I never thought I'd ended up all the way down the seafront. Haha.

Since it was already around 4:00 pm when I arrived at the seafront, I called my Mom to check what time she'll get out off work. She told me she'll kick off at 5:00 pm so I decided to wait for her. I sat on the beach and finished my burger meal slowly and lingered in the Highstreet for a while to pass the time. I met up with her back at point A and I finally got home at around 7:00 pm.

Total Distance travelled: 9.4 Km :)

Delta Force Paintball

0 comments
Last Tuesday I went paintballing together with my sister and our friends. I was actually in a bad mood that morning due to lack of sleep and well, I had a bit of argument with my sister, as we always do. haha. I did invite some of my own friends but they declined (boo! :P).

Anyway, we arrived in Billericay at around 9:10 am. From what 'Te B said, the paintballing venue should be around 10 minutes walk, that of course is a big lie. Delta Force Paintball centre is more than 10 minutes walk from Billericay train station it was in fact, more than 30 minutes away. While walking we actually thought that we were lost since we've been walking for ages and there seemed to be no sign of it. We asked lots of kind people on the way and they all gave us the same answer, "Walk straight ahead. When you see a water tower, then you're there."
When we finally saw the water tower after a lot of walking we were overjoyed. We actually ran towards it. We arrived late, as you may have guessed and ended up missing the first round.

Oh yea, I must say that the weather that day wasn't the optimum weather to go paintballing as it made the forest ground all muddy and wet. Due to the difference in temperature our breath condensed and fogged our goggles. I basically couldn't see anything after the first half of a game - there was also that rule that one must not remove their goggles when inside the map, breaking this rule would mean being banned from playing the whole day and so, I couldn't do anything about it. It was a good thing that the sky cleared up during the afternoon games, it made it easier to play without worrying about the goggles getting foggy.

Upon our arrival, the paintball staff gave us a small briefing on the rules, the equipments etc etc. and divided us into two groups: Red and Blue. I was in the Red group. The Reds are made up of 5 girls and 2 boys while the Blues are made up of 5 boys and 3 girls. The other people already playing in the first map was also divided into two team: Red and Blue. For the rest of the day, all the reds combined and all the blues combined to battle each other out. At first, I was a bit lost as to what to do. I knew how to shoot but I had no idea where I should go, I ended up shooting blindly and getting eliminated right away. Being hit wasn't as painful as I thought but then I guess it is painful when you get shot within 3 metres... my sister's bruise was a good example of that. By the way, the first game was won by the Blue team. They were able to get our flag and managed to kill us all off. >.>

We were given a 10 minutes break to clean our foggy goggles and the paint off our helmets. The break also allowed us to refill our guns. The second map was that off a castle. The objectives of the game was for the defender to not let the attacking team to raise the flag at the side of the castle. Three metres rule still apply so when someone is raising the flag the defender is not allowed to shoot him inside the castle unless, he/she is three metres away from him. The attackers have infinite lives so they can resurrect and re-spawn at their base when they get hit. Our team was the first to defend the castle but due to our own miscommunication and due to the expertise of this old man the Blue team managed to raise our flag within two minutes and forty seconds. We managed to raise the Blue team's flag within seven minutes when we became the attacking team. I know, they pretty much pawned us. >_<

The next map was filled with stacked barrels scattered around the place. This time, it was titled 'The Death Match'. The objective was to annihilate the opposing team. All the rules still apply so no one is allowed to shoot each other when they are on the opposite sides of the same barrel. You either stay there or move three metres apart and shoot each other. I was eliminated really quick at the start of the first round so all I was able to do was to watch at the sidelines, that meant I had a lot of ammo left so I was able to join in the second round. We were joined by one of the staff (the manager) for whatever reason, (I've got a feeling since we were loosing...) and he gave us some instructions. Before I knew it, I was in the front lines and everyone was targeting me. I held on pretty long, and I'd like to think I shot some of them, I died when I was hit on my fingers (that hurt a lot!). In the end, Red lost and Blue won. But we did get some extra points because I held on long enough alone in the front lines -Bless the marshal for giving me those points! :)

After that, we had a break to do our stuff and we went on to the 5th map. The map was made up of fallen trees and 5 huts. It was an imitation of a primitive village basically. The objective of this round was to capture all of the huts. In order to do this, a member of a team must be inside the house at the end of the game. Each captured hut will earn the team 2 points. At this point in the game, I didn't have much ammo... I think I only had less than 10 ammo then. Our team started out at the eastern part of the map while the blue team started out at the opposite end. When the marshal shouted start, I headed to one of the huts and hid in the corner making sure I had a good view of my attackers. I had my gun poised at the side of the door ready to shoot anyone who came near my hut. I made sure not to shoot unnecessarily to conserve my bullet. There was some Blue that came close but their hiding place didn't exactly cover them well so I was able to shoot them and defend my hut. Having eliminated all Blues and capturing all the huts, Red ended up winning this map.

They gave us 30 minutes to eat our lunch and afterwards started the last 'official' game. We didn't participate in this game as we ran out of ammo. When the other players came back, the marshals announced the winners of the day, which are the Blue team (pretty obvious wasn't it?).

We bought some more paint ball for the last game which is pretty much a game off 'shoot all you want till you ran out of ammo'. The objective was to kill the general of the opposing team and retrieve his jacket. So, the end was basically a free war. We shot endlessly and we died endlessly. Neither of the generals was killed so no one won this round but it was a fun way to end our day. :)

The musings of a sleep deprived.

0 comments
I've been reading a story called Vampire Girl and it centred about this two lovers who kept killing each other every time they're reincarnated. No one actually know who first killed who even till the end. And so, their reincarnation kills each other for revenge every time they're reincarnated, although they actually love each other. It's an endless cycle that would never be stopped unless, the 'child' stopped playing with the ball or the 'child gets killed. The child being their creator and the ball being the two of them, the so-called 'failure'.

There was more to the story than just killing and their tragic fate and now it made me think. If, reincarnations are true and if, the present are atoning for their past selves' mistake, just like in the story, then what am I atoning for? What is my purpose for being here?

It would also be interesting to see what I am in my past life, was a human? an animal? a plant, maybe? Making all these questions and pondering about them can take me many days and I still wouldn't come up with any answers... but maybe, it's better that way? Not knowing about my past might be better than burdening myself with the weight of knowing my deeds and answering and pondering about these endless questions.

All this, however, are just fleeting thoughts that my mind conjured due to lack of sleep. So if you would, please, treat this as some random ramblings from a stranger you've passed on the streets.
