Lyrics to Just For A Moment by Jason Chen

Just for a moment, can we escape
Just for a moment, we’ll find a common place
Girl it aint easy, to stay away from you baby
I just gotta say girl, but
Just for a moment, this is our song
This is a moment, where you and I belong
Girl I’ve been waiting, I know you’re waiting
No need to say it, so close your eyes girl
Just for a moment

Verse 1:
Another state, another city got me tired out
Flashing lights of cameras flickerin as people shout
It’s not enough to hear my baby’s voice on the phone
Cause the only fan I care about is back home alone
They tellin me that I got plenty o’ time for a relationship
Told me to wait on it (no no)
Cause ever since the day you came in my life
You were my favorite, dont know what to make of it (whoa whoa)
Lookin through photos of us in my hotel room
After a couple shows you know I’ll be back soon
So many sleepless nights,
tossing, turning alone aint right
Girl you know im impatiently yearnin that

Verse 2:
Travelin around the world without you
Has got me thinkin about the day I found you
I’d climb the highest mountaintops to sing your name
swim to the ocean floor, just so i can see your face
If they only knew what I’m willin to give
to kiss my baby’s lips
Girl I aint fakin it (no no)
And everytime they add more time on the road
Girl I be hatin it
I’m just not sayin it (whoa whoa)
I almost left this life but you wouldnt let me
Cause you knew that music’s something that made me happy
So girl this one’s for you
Every word that I sing is true
I’ll be there beside you before you know it babe

Two of Us by Tony T Nguyen and Connie Lim

Tony T Nguyen Two of Us

Tony T Nguyen has released a music video to his single “Two of Us”. It takes place in the distant future with only two robots left (one male and one female). The scientist attempts to rebuild the world with love by uploading an old file (modern day) of how men and women are suppose to bond with each other. During this process, the scientist tries to contain any viruses from infecting the file so that the robots can have a pure transfer of what love is with no corrupted memories.

The video also features vocals from Connie Lim as well as appearances by Kim Do and Can Nguyen from Poreotics. Kristine Sa is credited as the songwriter.

Lyrics to Two of Us by Tony T Nguyen

The numbers on this clock 
They haven’t changed for days 
Is this how I should feel 
Transcending time and space

We move and inch 
and all this commotion, this release 
I’m at a loss for words 
What is this feeling in me?

Well there was a time that 
The most simple thing is all we need 
As if I once knew it

There was a world where 
What matters is simple as can be 
There was nothing to it

My skin and flesh can see 
The deepest part of me

My heart remembers all that space 
My lips remember how you taste 
Another time, another place

Heartbeats racing 
Fingers tracing 
Empty spaces 
Raw emotion

Crawling under 
Spilling over 
Still together 
Still in motion

Scream in silence 
Quiet guidance 
Safe reliance 
Deep as oceans

I can faintly recall how it was

So here we are 
Wherever here and now may be

I close my eyes 
But I still see you seeing me

The live performance is chill and laid back much his Billboard Tastemaker session. Check out Bruno Mars unplugged.
