It’s Time – Imagine Dragons

I’ve not been listening to the radio since 12 years ago. I did try once a few years back, one of the more popular channels in Singapore, but I switched it off 30 seconds after it blasted noisy altered sounds of instruments and voices into my ears.

From then on, I’ve been discovering music online. Finding music from blogs I read, or just random YouTube surfing, then following artists and bands I like on facebook. It’s been a fun  journey because it’s always such a joy to find music that you can relate to, music with melodies that simply stick with you, make you sit back and smile / cry / reminisce / think…

Sometimes I do stumble upon popular songs by accident, and only know about it when someone talks about it, or I hear it popping up everywhere :P

I’ve chanced Imagine Dragons from Joshua from the Minimalist while reading his post one night. This song and video made me smile.  It must be the beat and the mandolin singing so happily! ;)

So this is what you meant
When you said that you were spent?
And now it’s time to build from the bottom of the pit right to the top
Don’t hold back
Packing my bags and giving the Academy a rain check

I don’t ever wanna let you down
I don’t ever wanna leave this town
‘Cause after all this city never sleeps at night

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand?
I’m never changing who I am

So this is where you fell
And I am left to sell
The path to Heaven runs through miles of clouded Hell right to the top
Don’t look back
Turning to rags and giving the commodities a rain check

I don’t ever wanna let you down
I don’t ever wanna leave this town
‘Cause after all this city never sleeps at night

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand?
I’m never changing who I am

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand?
I’m never changing who I am

This road never looked so lonely
This house doesn’t burn down slowly
To ashes!
To ashes!

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand?
I’m never changing who I am

It’s time to begin, isn’t it?
I get a little bit bigger but then I’ll admit
I’m just the same as I was
Now don’t you understand?
I’m never changing who I am
