Another Teenage Moment

Disclaimer: a long post but an enjoyable one. Hahahaha

Here is a song that I LOVE from way back in 2008.

I loved it so much.  I had to send the lyrics to ze husband via SMS.

Yes, it's been around that long.  It never made it to the charts but it's definitely okay with me.  As I've mentioned here.  I think this one is very much under rated.

Honestly, I never thought it had a video since it did not become very popular.  That, plus I'm not too much of a youtube girl.  I hate waiting for video to load.  I only have patience for videos when it's for kids.

The main reason why I love the song is mainly because I can totally relate with it.

TEENAGE LOVE AFFAIR.  Oh yes.

Fine, ze husband wasn't my first relationship but with him was the really serious one.  The ones before him was just play.  You know the kind, when you have someone just for the sake of having one?  We never really got together or acted as couples.  And yeah, there was one.  And that was out of stupidity.  I tend to laugh about it now and regret it.  I was in junior high then.  Ugh!

Enough with the blah-blah and let me share a video of one of my favorite songs..



It's nice actually.  Alicia Keys appears thin and pretty here.  I love her hairstyles and her pink lipstick.  Hahaha.  I like how the video mas made.


Can't wait to get home, baby dial your number
Can u pick up the phone 'cause I wanna holla
Daydreaming about you all day in school can't concentrate
Want have your voice in my ear
'Till Ma comes and says its too late
Coz the lights are on outside
Wish there was somewhere to hide
Cause I just don't want to say goodbye 'cause you are my baby baby

Nothing really matters, I don't really care
What nobody tell me, I'm gonna be here
It's a matter of extreme importance
My first teenage love affair


Another secret meeting on the 5th floor stair case
I'm gonna give you this letter of all the things I cant say
Want you to be my first my last my ending and beginning
I wrote your name in my book
Your last name my first
I'm your Mrs.

Cause the lights are on outside
Wish there was somewhere to hide
Cause I just don't want to say goodbye
Cause you are my baby baby

Nothing really matters, I don't really care
What nobody tell me, I'm gonna be here
It's a matter of extreme importance
My first teenage love affair

Hey boy
You know I really like being with u right?
Just hanging out with you is fun

So maybe we can go to first base
Because I feel you
Second base
Want you to feel me too
Third base
Better pump the brakes
Well baby slow down
I gotta go home now


See, I just had to highlight everything I could relate to.

Every bit of this song holds true to anyone who is in love during their teenage years.


Can't wait to get home, baby dial your number
Isn't it that when you are in a new relationship and you are young, you tend to often rush home just to be able to make another phone call or wait for a phone call?  Even if you had just seen and spent time with each other in school?  Haha! Such is the case with me and my love of my life.

Daydreaming about you all day in school can't concentrate
This is the reason why you can't really say that having someone is like having an inspiration.  NO! That is not true.  Get real.  Inspiration to not be absent, yes.  But more often than not, the supposed to be inspiration becomes a distraction.  It's not like that for every single relationship.  I think it still depends on the the couple.  What happened with us, we wanted to show to everyone that we were having a good relationship like we weren't doing anything stupid.  So, together with our love for each other stemmed the desire to make it work for others to see and in the end, we can have the last laugh for those who wronged us.

Another secret meeting on the 5th floor stair case 
I'm gonna give you this letter of all the things I cant say
Well, not 5th.  We were just in the 3rd floor.  But I do remember one time when we had to meet in the staircase cause I had to give him something.  We were having a fight, I think.  A petty one.  Funny.

Want you to be my first my last my ending and beginning
This really holds true to my heart.  My first and my last.  I wanted to end up with him and begin something for a lifetime.


I wrote your name in my book
Your last name my first
I'm your Mrs.
Oh, we are all familiar with this.  We girls, would often write down our names and use their surname and check how it would sound like, if it's bagay.  Or see how it'd look like when it's written.  We even try to include it in a new signature (wait, maybe that's just me? Hahahahaha!!!).  Yes, I admit.  Back in the time when I was only 16 years old, I already envisioned myself with him.  So, the hopeful/ hopeless romantic in me, penned a signature that sort of incorporated his surname.  And even if I was being hopeful, I was also realistic.  So I made sure, if ever we never end up together, the signature would not read his surname.


Nothing really matters, I don't really care
What nobody tell me, I'm gonna be here
It's a matter of extreme importance
My first teenage love affair


Oh yes, teenage love affair.  When one thinks it's the msot important thing that matters.  When it's the ONLY that matters.  It sounds wrong for parents and when you look back in time.  Most couple don't make it through.  Some would break up with full of hate, some break up and end up being FuBus, some end up getting pregnant, some part ways then find each other again, and some are just really lucky to be able to never part ways.

I'm thankful that we were able to go through it all.

And this has been terribly long.  Yikes.
