empire state of mind

Grrrrrraaaaaaaah, my first post in february. Education thingies has taken my attention from blogworld. Okay, almost everyday I open twitter and facebook, look for sarah, freddie, and charlotte updates. But blog is not my attention anymore huhuuuuuu

I've been listening to Jay Z and Alicia Keys's Empire state of mind for almost 15 minutes. Always feels good to hear this song. Bodo amat lagu ini udah gak masuk chart dimana-mana, this song is soooo mine ! Like the current soundtrack of my life. About new york my favorite city, about dreams,,, lagu ini secara tidak langsung telah menyemangati gw, buat belajar, keterima feui, jadi sarjana ekonomi, kerja di industry yang jadi cita2 gw selama ini, make a lot of money, ke new york, beli town house di daerah kemang (this is the newest one), etc,,,,,

[Verse 1: Jay-Z]
Yea I'm out that Brooklyn, now I'm down in TriBeCa
right next to Deniro, but I'll be hood forever
I'm the new Sinatra, and... since I made it here
I can make it anywhere, yea, they love me everywhere
I used to cop in Harlem, all of my Dominicano's
right there up on Broadway, pull me back to that McDonald's
Took it to my stashbox, 560 State St.
catch me in the kitchen like a Simmons with them Pastry's
Cruisin' down 8th St., off white Lexus
drivin' so slow, but BK is from Texas
Me, I'm out that Bed-Stuy, home of that boy Biggie
now I live on Billboard and I brought my boys with me
Say what's up to Ty-Ty, still sippin' mai tai's
sittin' courtside, Knicks & Nets give me high five
Nigga I be Spike'd out, I could trip a referee
Tell by my attitude that I'm most definitely from....

[Chorus: Alicia Keys]
New York, concrete jungle where dreams are made of
There's nothin' you can't do
Now you're in New York
These streets will make you feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let's hear it for New York, New York,
New York

[Verse 2: Jay-Z]
Catch me at the X with OG at a Yankee game
Shit, I made the Yankee hat more famous then a Yankee can
You should know I bleed blue, but I ain't a Crip though
but I got a gang of niggas walkin' with my clique though
Welcome to the melting pot, corners where we sellin' rock
Afrika Bambataa shit, home of the hip-hop
Yellow cab, gypsy cab, dollar cab, holla back
for foreigners it ain't for, they act like they forgot how to act
8 million stories, out there in it naked
City, it's a pity, half of y'all won't make it
Me, I got a plug, Special Ed "I Got It Made"
If Jeezy's payin' LeBron, I'm payin' Dwyane Wade
Three dice cee-lo, three Card Monty
Labor Day Parade, rest in peace Bob Marley
Statue of Liberty, long live the World Trade
Long live the King yo, I'm from the Empire State that's

[Chorus:]

[Verse 3: Jay-Z]
Lights is blinding, girls need blinders
so they can step out of bounds quick, the sidelines is
lined with casualties, who sip to life casually
then gradually become worse, don't bite the apple eve
Caught up in the in-crowd, now you're in style
Anna Wintour gets cold, in Vogue with your skin out
City of sin, it's a pity on the wind
Good girls gone bad, the city's filled with them
Mami took a bus trip, now she got her bust out
Everybody ride her, just like a bus route
Hail Mary to the city, you're a virgin

Came here for school, graduated to the high life
Ball players, rap stars, addicted to the limelight
MDMA got you feelin' like a champion
The city never sleeps, better slip you an Ambien

[Chorus:]

[Bridge: Alicia Keys]
One hand in the air for the big city
Street lights, big dreams, all lookin' pretty
No place in the world that could compare
Put your lighters in the air
Everybody say "yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah"





Yeah, yeah, yeah how representative the song is ? beside that, my life now is hectically full with study, well I don't study that crazy, but I'm study. I focus for simak ui, it is ui which takes all of my attention. TO scores alhamdulillah quite good, semoga jangan sampe lengah deh gw. How about that so-called enemy ? I play good, eheheee ;p

heheheeee, kangen ngeblog kan rasanya, heheheeeeee ;p fufufuuu but I have to study mooooore, biar keterima ui dan cita2 yg gw tulis mulu di blog ini jadi kenyataan, amiin Ya Allah ;)



~New York, where concrete jungle are made of~
