Christmas in Our Hearts

The song Christmas in our Hearts by Jose Mari Chan and Liza Chan is one of the most memorable Christmas songs of my childhood. I heard it first when I was in my grade school. From then on, each time I hear it,  it has become my indicator that it’s Christmas time once again. For some reason, this song gives me joy inside. Here’s the official video.

Whenever I see girls and boys
Selling lanterns on the street
I remember the child in the manger as he sleeps
Wherever there are people
Giving gifts exchanging cards
I believe that Christmas is truly in our hearts
Let’s light our Christmas trees for a bright tomorrow
Where nations are at peace,
And all are one in God

[Chorus:]
Let’s sing Merry Christmas and a happy holiday
This season may we never forget the love we have for Jesus
Let him be the one to guide us as another new year starts
And may the spirit of Christmas be always in our hearts

In every prayer and every song
The community unites celebrating the birth of our savior Jesus Christ
Let love like that starlight on that first Christmas morn
Lead us back to the manger where Christ the child was born
So come let us rejoice
Come and sing the Christmas carol with one big joyful voice
Proclaim the name of the Lord

[Chorus:]
Let’s sing Merry Christmas and a happy holiday
This season may we never forget the love we have for Jesus
Let him be the one to guide us as another new year starts
And may the spirit of Christmas be always in our hearts

[Chorus:]
Let’s sing Merry Christmas and a happy holiday
The season may we never forget the love we have for Jesus
Let him be the one to guide us as another new year starts
And may the spirit of Christmas be always in our hearts

Take Good Care of You and Me

I always listen to love songs but this is my first time (as far as I know) to hear Dionne Warwick and Jeffrey Osborne’s duet, Take Good Care of  You and me. It’s more like of a song good for weddings because of its meaningful lyrics. I got attracted with the melody first until I learn the lyrics… Then, I fell in love with it. I hope I could have this song played on my wedding, too!

Note: This is the original MTV but it’s cut the end. This video is a complete one – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhGzlzKBtsQ. Enjoy listening! I’ve also included the lyrics to complete the enjoyment.

Take Good Care of You and Me (Lyrics)

Take good care of you and me
Protect us from the things that hurts love
Jealousies that take you under
Lies that undermine

Please be fair to you and me
And don’t betray the love I give to you
When you’re away don’t make me wonder
If I’m on your mind

Take good care of you and me
Real love is hard to find
Look in my eyes, I’ll fall in love with you
Over and over for the rest of our lives

Hear what I say now
I want our love to be the one that’s the strongest
And the one that survives ’cause there’s no one else
No, no one else that makes me feel so glad I’m alive

Baby, one sorry note to end on
If we should fall apart
Take good care of you and me
I’ve given you my heart

Look in my eyes, I’ll fall in love with you
Oh, yes
Over and over for the rest of our lives

Hear what I say now
I want our love to be the one that’s the strongest
And the one that survives ’cause there’s no one else
No, no one else that makes me feel so glad I’m alive

Hear what I say now, oh, hear me
I want our love to be the one that’s the strongest
And the one that survives ’cause there’s no one else
No, no one else that makes me feel so glad I’m alive

Look in my eyes, I’ll fall in love with you
Over and over for the rest of our lives

Hear what I say now, I hear you, baby
I want our love to be, oh yeah, the one that’s the strongest
And the one that survives ’cause there’s no one else
No, no one else that makes me feel so glad I’m alive

Look in my eyes, I’ll fall in love
