Christina Aguilera - “Cruz”

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: October 6, 2007

This song is really special to me. It reminds me of a time I went through recently where I broke free and branched out on my own. It was scary but peaceful. I want this song to be played at my funeral when I die. Not that I’m really thinking that far ahead, but it does have a life after death feel to it.

The song is from Christina’s second album Stripped. IMO, it’s one of the best songs on the album. Her vocals are really good. This video is from a live UK performance. Enjoy.

I’m leaving today
Living it
Leaving it
To change

Slowly drifting
Into a peaceful breeze
Tongue tied and twisted
Are all my memories
Celebrating a fantasy come true
Packing all my bags
Finally on the move

I’m leaving today
I’m living it
Oh, I’m leaving it
To change

As I’m driving
I’m captured by the view
So much beauty
The road becomes my muse
The heat is rising
And my hand surfs through the wind
Cool, calm, collected
Is the child that lies within

See, I’m leaving today
I’m living it
Oh, I’m leaving it
To change, oh yeah

See, I’m leaving today,
Oh yes I’m
Living it
Oh, I’m leaving it
To change

But somehow I miss it
I think I’ll really miss it
One day, yeah, yeah, ohh

I turn up the radio
And I’m feeling like I’ve never felt before
Turn down the memories of
Yester-years and broken dreams I bring
Finally free
(Ooh, ooh, ooh)

Slowly drifting
Into a peaceful breeze, oh
Ohh

Ooh, yeah
I’m leaving today,
Oh yes I’m
Living it, oh yeah
Leaving it to change
To change, oh no

See, I’m leaving today,
Oh yes I’m
Living it, living it
Leaving it, leaving
To change
Whoa, oh, oh

I’m leaving today
Oh, I’m living it
I’m leaving it to change
Living it, to change, yeah
Oh ooh, ooh, ooh, oh yeah

Living it, leaving it
Said, I’m living it
I’m leaving it
(Woo, ooh, ooh)
Living it, leaving it
To change
I’m leaving it to change

But somehow I miss it
I think I’ll really miss it
One day, yeah

A man is trying a very unusual way to propose to his girlfriend. He wants people to forward an email to as many people as possible and he hopes that it will eventually get to his girlfriend. Details here: http://www.proposal-to-mary.com

Here is what he wants people to send by email:

You could help me a lot to spread my proposal to Mary – it is important that it is distributed as widely as possible so that it eventually reaches Mary. If you would like to support my proposal to Mary, please send the following text by email to a lot of people :-)
————- SNIP (email text end) —————

WHEN YOU RECEIVE THIS, PLEASE HELP TO DISTRIBUTE IT TO OTHER PEOPLE!

For a long time I have tried to find a special way to propose marriage to my girlfriend Mary, whom I know for five years now. I wanted it very special, romantic and memorable, something our grandchildren would still remember.

And here is my idea: I will send out the proposal to Mary to 50 complete strangers, people I don’t know - hoping, that they will forward my proposal to as many people as possible, which in turn forward it etc. And some day, I hope, it will reach Mary, after it has travelled a very long way. I know, it will take a long time and I am quite nervous…

From the poem MY Mary will know immediately that the proposal is for her.

I have created a homepage ( http://www.proposal-to-mary.com ) where you can find the current status of my quest. You can use the homepage to check if the proposal has already reached Mary (in that case it is not necessary anymore to forward the mail).

Once the proposal has reached Mary, I will put a note on these pages. Also I will publish there how many people have read the proposal so that everybody can see how far it has spread and that it is getting closer to Mary.

And of course you will find there what I am waiting for most: Mary’s answer! I can’t tell you, how nervous I am… Will she accept my proposal? Will she like the unusual way how she got it, through the hands of thousands of messengers all over the world?

Please cross your fingers for me! And please - help me by sending the mail to as many people as possible, to help it spread, so that it eventually reaches Mary.

And here is my proposal:

Mary, please forgive me, as you know English is not my native language. And I am not a poet. But I mean it from my heart.

My angel,

Five years ago, I will always remember the day When fate made us meet, blissful Alaskan moments in May Earth spun around us and a journey began Love, warmth, happiness, enough the years to span.

The longer it lasts the more grows our bond And with 80 still - of you I will be fond Whatever happens, I will stay at your side Through good and bad, together let us stride

No second with you was ever wasted
You are the sweetest I have ever tasted
We have spent so many years - why not a life?
Mary, will you marry me - and become my wife?

Mary, if you have received that and have recognized me, then give me a sign so that I can continue with the romantic part of my proposal…
