Song of the Day 7/28/10 – Strong Enough by Kina Grannis

Yay! Humpday! Here’s your music for the day. I’ve been posting up these co-write things I’ve been doing for the Kina Grannis co-write contest and have failed to introduce you guys to her lovely music. I also realized I’ve yet to share with you all a female artist…and I’m a sucker for a girl that can play the guitar and sing like this!

I found Kina on YouTube and she’s got quite a following online because of her connection with her subscribers. She’ll make shoutouts on almost all her videos..birthday wishes, etc etc. After checking out her Wiki I found out she also won the Doritos Crash the Superbowl. Her first video one YouTube was for her entry for the DCtS in Nov. 2007.

You really just can’t help but fall in love with how sweet this girl is. You can tell from her videos that she’s just an amazing women and her music too is just candy to the ears!

The song of the day is Strong Enough by Kina Grannis. It’s off her newest album, Stairwells. I chose to use a video someone posted on YouTube of the actual album version as I like it better than the acoustic cover she does on her channel (the audio quality just isn’t up to my standards 🙂 ). The album songs great though. So here it is, and if you like, definitely go check out more of her videos…she does some creative things. I suggest watching the video to “Valentine”

Lyrics:
Welcome to the days of wariness
Where I’m feeling an echo inside my chest,
I’ve a heart beating impatiently long,
Waiting for the other half of it’s song
It’s song

[Chorus:]
No, it’s not enough
Don’t touch my hand and call it love
If you can’t hold it tight, tonight
If you’re not strong enough

And times have told the ways things come to light
Realizing a lack in your will to fight
Despite words crying at inconsistencies,
As you fall uneasily to your knees, your knees

[Chorus]

And I’m not blind to what you’re doing here
Make me feel like I’m special,
But my dear, I have seen through a weakness in your eyes
You don’t know it, but you’re telling me lies,
Me lies

And you will soon awake to see
There is no heart in anything you say to me
We thought we’d found a harmony, a perfect match of melodies
No, But if you listen closely now, I’ve been singing all alone

No, OooOoo…

[Chorus]

Strong enough, OooOoo…
Strong enough,
Strong enough,

[Chorus]

Strong enough, OooOoo…
Strong enough,
Strong enough…

Kina Grannis Co-Write Verse 2

This is my lyrics for Kina Grannis’ Co-Write III, Verse 2. Lyrics of the two previous winners as well as my Verse 2 lyrics are posted below.

Verse 1 written by Kate McGill – http://www.youtube.com/katem3

As I lay here on the bed my heart it speaks
I let it beat its beat, you feel the love it leaks
And I can’t describe just how much of it is for you and what you do
But if I could love just one it would be you
Pre-Chorus and Chorus written by Brent Morgan – http://www.youtube.com/bmorgan1088

All this time, I was broken
Trying to find a love unspoken

And I know ya want the same love,
That I’ve fought so long,
The one we thought was wrong,
And you know I, oh I, need your love
‘Cause we can’t fool ourselves,
into someone elses heart

Me again…trying my best to make some winning lyrics for Verse II

It is time for me to make this nice and clear
I’ll just lay it out, get rid of all this fear
And I know I don’t have much to lose
but I could get lost in you
I just hope that you say you love me too

Kina Grannis Co-Write Pre Chorus & Chorus

This write up is to tell you about the Kina Grannis contest I’ve entered on YouTube and also to help you navigate her channel to find my lyrics and vote. First off here is the first verse written by Katem3 who won the first Co-Write contest with my Pre-Chorus and Chorus following.

Verse 1 (written by Kate McGill)
As I lay here on the bed my heart it speaks
I let it beat its beat, you feel the love it leaks
And I can’t describe just how much of it is for you and what you do
But if I could love just one it would be you

Pre-Chorus & Chorus (Written by me, Rafe Preston)
Yes it’s true that I love you.
Yeah and you, you love me too.
So then turn around, yeah, lay on down.
‘Cause I need you here.
Whisper in my ear.
Wrap your arms around me, don’t let go.
Our dreams will grow,
And our hearts will know.
It is love.

And here is the video I made so you can see how it fits with the melody. Sorry, I’m a rubbish singer!

To vote for my lyrics you have to do 4 things:
1. Have a YouTube Account
2. That YouTube Account must be linked to a Gmail Account
3. You have to log into the Moderator on Kina’s Channel.
4. Find my lyrics and click thumbs up. (It won’t count if you just thumbs up the video I posted on my site)

Now I realize it’s a bit out of the way to have to go to Kina’s site to vote, but here is picture by picture instructions on how to go about finding my lyrics and voting for them.

First make sure you are logged into your YouTube account and then go to here Channel. I have links posted on my Video and in the description or you can just click HERE!!

Once you are at here page scroll down till you see two windows. On the left will be the submissions for the Chorus and on the right will be here description of the contest and a list of scrolling options. You may have to sign into her moderator (highlights in red) using your gmail account. This allows you to vote on other people’s videos.

After you sign in go to the right box and scroll to the bottom where you’ll see a list of sorting options

Now just click “Video Suggestions” under “All Suggestions” (This will narrow the search as less people add a video to their lyric submissions). Then under that click Sort by Date and you should see me on that first page still unless someone has recently posted a video for their lyrics in which case you’ll need to click the next button to find me. Once you do just click the thumbs up to the right of my lyrics.

I hope you enjoyed my video and lyrics and I hope this little guide helped you figure out how to vote on them. Thanks everyone!
