Soundtrack Of My Life

Don’t you find it fascinating how listening to tunes could bring back a flood of memories from your past. A friend of mine use to curate his spotify playlist by the year to remember the fondest moments. Well, to kick off mine, I would play a little track. This song was looping on the screens as I boarded the London bound Malaysian Airlines flight back in 2003 from my hometown of Penang.

I could recall the big sense of excitement of the independence and freedom I would experience being abroad as I have always lived with my family. I could recall the tears from my mum as she put on her sun glasses to shield them from sight as she bid farewell to me.

The song is Cry by Kym Marsh. If you don’t know her, she is a former band mate of the short-lived British Pop Group Hear’Say which was created from the reality show Popstars on ITV in 2001. I never watched the series but know of the group thanks to following my sister’s obsession with the british teen magazine Smash Hits! (now out of print as well)

I can’t find a proper version of the video on Youtube but here is the closest copy I can get. I will try and do the song a bit of justice and will update it with a clearer copy if I ever get my hands on it.

Lyrics to Cry by Kym Marsh

I would like to say that I
Never meant to make you cry
I think about you every day
No matter what your friends might say
Everybody knows my name
Even though I’m still the same
I just would like to say that I
I never ever meant to make you cry

I would like to know
Why there are clouds in the sky
Every time I fall in love
And I would like to know
Why I’m sitting here on my own
I would like to know
Why when I find a nice guy
Someone I can lean upon
I mess it all up and then
I wonder why I’m all alone
Tell me if you think that I
I’m talking way too much
Tell me if you’d like to stay in touch

I would like to say that I
Never meant to make you cry
I think about you every day
No matter what your friends might say
Everybody knows my name
Even though I’m still the same
I just would like to say that I
I never ever meant to make you cry

Sitting on the sofa
Letting life go by
Thinking about the early days
Thinkin’ ’bout the times when I
Hurt you with my crazy ways
All I want to do is
Look around for you yeah
Drivin’ till the break of dawn
And
Pleading till your coming home
Tell me if you think that I
I’ve been I bit to much
Tell me if you’d like to stay in touch

I would like to say that I
Never meant to make you cry
I think about you every day
No matter what your friends might say
Everybody knows my name
Even though I’m still the same
I just would like to say that I
I never ever meant to make you cry

cry
I didn’t mean to be so cruel
(I didn’t mean to be so cruel)
I didn’t mean to let you down
(I didn’t mean to let you down)
So sorry for the rain
On your terrain
On all the pain
You must have gained because of me

I would like to say that I (I would like to say)
Never meant to make you cry
I think about you every day (oh every day)
No matter what your friends might say
Everybody knows my name
Even though I’m still the same (still the same)
I just would like to say that I
I never ever meant to make
I never ever meant to make you cry
