I Will See You Again

In honor of Dad’s third death anniversary.

“See You Again”

Carrie Underwood

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Said goodbye, turned around
And you were gone, gone, gone
Faded into the setting sun,
Slipped away

But I won’t cry
Cause I know I’ll never be lonely
For you are the stars to me,
You are the light I follow

[Chorus:]
I will see you again, whoa

This is not where it ends

I will carry you with me, oh

‘Til I see you again

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I can hear those echoes in the wind at night
Calling me back in time
Back to you

In a place far away
Where the water meets the sky
The thought of it makes me smile
You are my tomorrow

[Chorus:]
I will see you again, whoa
This is not where it ends

I will carry you with me, oh
‘Til I see you again

[Bridge:]
Sometimes I feel my heart is breaking
But I stay strong and I hold on cause I know

I will see you again, whoa
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me, yeah, yeah

[Outro:]
I will see you again, whoa
This is not where it ends
I will carry you with me, oh
‘Til I see you again.

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

‘Til I see you again,
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
‘Til I see you again, whoa
‘Til I see you again,

Said goodbye turned around
And you were gone, gone, gone.

Lea’s Magic

On her recently-concluded anniversary concert, Lea Salonga told her audience that she aspired and hoped to sing like Barbra Streisand – pure, precise, no BS. I was lucky enough to see her rehearse for said concert, and I can tell you, from personal experience, EVEN during rehearsal, Lea’s gift of music was pure, precise and no BS. 

 

For those who were able watch her Playlist concert, she was impeccable. But I tell you, during rehearsal, when imperfections were noticeable, and even expected, Lea’s voice was still MAGICAL.

Below are two raw videos of the incomparable, and one of my ALL-TIME favorite theater actresses, Lea Salonga. Happiness is only real when shared. 🙂

Walt Disney said that “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” This is true. But every once in a while, your dream turns into a reality when you have a fairy godmother who loves you. (Thanks, Ninang, for this unforgettable experience!)
