INVINCIBLE ~ From the album ‘Postcards In The Sky’

Invincible Lyrics

I started a war
Sent out the battle cry
And I’ve been here before
Fighting me, myself and I
When I try to prove that I’m never gonna lose
I push too hard
I push too far
Try to be brave ‘til it’s more that I can take
So many times
‘Til I realize

Take a breath
Look at how you’re trying to think it to death
When you’re in the crossfire don’t forget
That you don’t have to be invincible
Take a step
Even if you fall it ain’t over yet
If you’re in the crossfire don’t forget
That you don’t have to be invincible
Ooh, Ooh

I counted to ten
Stepped back so I could see
How bad it can get
When I’m the enemy

I put my weapons down
Until I found a better way, a better way
I’ll never change if I’m too afraid to break
Got to let it go, let the whole world know to

Chorus

Bridge:
You’ll never know
Never know how strong you are
‘Til you’re strong enough to let your armor fall

Official lyrics

Chorus:
We out here grinding we working X 4

Tell me how to do it and I do/
Fuelin my ambition like I’m filling up a pool/
Aint my choice but its up to me to choose
Hammered out my goals like I’m working with my tools/

On the same page like da headline news
even jimmy fallon couldn’t shake me out my roots/
best foot forward like we dancing wit a groove/
we gone stay grinding till We all make a move\

Said are you gonna find it , baby my way
Are we gon grind or are we gon play
We gon give it time never gonna wait
Said it either black or white but no grey

Chorus:
We out here grinding we working X 4

We could only win never loose/
Cause the only thing we ever share be da truth
We gon feed the fire till its burnin down the roof
Focus on ya heart cause the feels be the proof

Yeah cause my soul lighting up like a fuse.
Always down to share never “thats our food”
shoulder to the wheel like a nascar
crew
Head in the word baby thats our school

Are you gonna find it baby my way
Are we gon grind or are we gon play
We gon give it time never gonna wait
Said it either black or white but no grey

Chorus:
We out here grinding we working X 4

From davidarchie‘s instagram: I know I’ve been away for a bit. I needed a break from social media to get focused again. It’s interesting how distracting checking comments and likes can be. It’s also draining. I needed to get back into remembering how I felt about myself and not caught up in what everyone else thought of me (good or bad). Hope y’all can understand. Been in the studio the last couple of weeks finishing up songs with@casoncooley. It has felt great working with him so far! I’m feeling good about these songs. In the meantime, Here’s a throwback photo to when we went to Pula, Croatia.

Here is @casoncooley’s IG link  https://www.instagram.com/casoncooley/?hl=en

Thank you Abrra!

Bluesky’s “Wishes for David Archuleta”

Posted by bebereader on Tuesday, January 19, 2016

wishing%20wellcredit: Nandito Ako

As I read blogs, comments, and watch videos of DA on AI, one thought keeps running through my mind: Be Careful What You Wish For!

I remember the topics:

  • The difficulties and struggles of the school-age participants
  • The discussions on last minute song changes or refusal of song choices
  • The judges comments/support or lack thereof
  • The overwhelming response of the musicians, audience and public
  • The worry over contracts and what they might mean
  • The struggle and pressure to produce an album, with music videos
  • The pressure and joy of the AI traveling concerts (I was – and still am, I expect – completely in love with the AI concerts that DA did!!)
  • The blogs, the “owners”, the tours under contract
  • The discussions about pros and cons of different publicists, labels, genres, bands
  • The wonder of experiencing DA’s constant change-ups, licks, interpretations, and heart-delivery: love, vulnerability, and strength

And on, and on. And with every challenge: More DA. More exposure. More learning about it all. And about him, as well.

3931db87-3c0b-4d8f-8d76-c8e0afc3a5fbcredit: Lily

There are also many aspects of DA that I could not fully know at the time, because I learned about him through the medium of AI. And many, many times: the medium is the message.

I remember how there were discussions on how wonderful it would be when DA was free of the AI contract(s), and could do things more his own way.

I thought to myself how for me at least, it was like a dichotomy: I did not want AI to “own” him. Yet I felt a certain ownership myself. And it was because AI “owned” him that the whole dynamic of “ownership” came up in the first place. I felt like I had a window into DA. Their ownership gave me the illusion of ownership as well. (Like really identifying with a character in a movie or story – I value the experience, I value my own experience with the character – I learn, and it becomes part of my life.) I think that is part of the attraction of “reality” television shows.

Of course, I never wanted to “own” DA. I just wanted the closeness to continue more or less the same. But I didn’t realize. How could I? I had never been on a reality show. I did not become a “public figure” at the age of 16. And “Dear DA” never wanted to be a public figure in the first place. He just wanted to follow the direction of the spirit and sing. It brought him publicity. It brought him to AI. It brought him to me. I am grateful.

So now, like before, I find myself “wishing for DA”. Wishing for him to be happy, for him to find the music he loves and a way to share it … especially, I wish for the continuation of it’s impact on my life. I admit that!

It is January 2016 and yes, why not? I am “wishing for DA”. And as I already have got most of my other wishes, that he be free, that he can do the music he, himself chooses, that he can do things “his own way”…. Is it too selfish of me to hope that my other wishes will be met as well? Hey! It could happen!!

So I will make an unapologetic wish list:

  • that DA tours this fall (or latest, next spring) all across the USA (and other countries), so that other fans can see him live
  • that DA records a CD with Spanish music
  • and one in English as well
  • that the powers that raise him up will sustain him and successfully enlist his kind and honest heart in a new “contract” a new “ownership” that carries him onward and upward and…. Closer to so many who have come to love him. No matter how they came to “know” him.

Dear DA: We wish for you only the very best and brightest of futures. Fans just…well….want to be enfolded in the sounds of all the music that that future holds. You see, we love that sound and I believe that this is just the way it was meant to be.

David Archuleta ~ Twenty-Four and There’s So Much More

Posted by djafan on Monday, January 19, 2015

David+Archuleta+0101

I saw Neil Young in concert in Frankfurt, Germany during the 70’s. It was in a gigantic gymnasium, everyone packed tightly together sitting cross-legged on the floor, (yes, sitting). Kind of like a relaxed mosh pit. The lights dimmed. A hush descended. Then this unassuming man slowly ambled onstage as though he was just wandering around and ended up there by accident and proceeded to blow us all away. Half the concert was with the band. The last half was just him sitting on a stool with a guitar and harmonica strapped to his head.

Neil Percival Young is still touring to sold-out concerts at the age of seventy.

I chose these two songs to share because I love them, and because the lyrics in Old Man: “Twenty-four and there’s so much more” and Hey Hey My My: “It’s better to burn out than to fade away” seem to sum up what Neil achieved in his lifetime and capture best what I hope for David.

A Teenager’s View of David Archuleta

Posted by emmazaugg on Wednesday, December 3, 2014

When we saw the One Voice Children’s Choir sing “Glorious” on YouTube, my mom got her credit card and bought tickets to the “Celebration of Christ” concert, knowing my Grandma was going, and that DAVID WOULD BE THERE! I had been watching David’s “Glorious” video multiple times a day for weeks, and I couldn’t get enough of it. His face is so sweet! In fact I have to keep drawing it :).

The whole show was amazing, but I couldn’t help but glance at the program often to see when David would be singing next. I felt so happy when he came out and performed his first number “The First Noel”. David sang a neat arrangement of “Do You Hear What I Hear” that he finished with a low, resonating note. I was enthralled. My mom and I squealed when we saw “Glorious” in the program (I think that song will be a forever favorite). Hearing David sing the lead with the children’s choir harmonizing was exactly what I had hoped! The beautiful first piano notes transported me into the song immediately. I really hope David records “Believe” (from Polar Express), his voice was incredible (I feel torn because I really like how Josh Groban sings the song, yet there’s something about David).

When we saw Masa Fukuda conducting the children’s choir in their YouTube video, we wanted to meet him! And we did! At the end of the concert, as he was exiting the building, we were able to tell him how much we enjoyed the choir. It was a treat to hear inside tidbits he told us of how David helped ease the children’s anxiety before they appeared on America’s Got Talent. David assured them he often gets nervous too. We also heard Stephanie Mabey (the composer of “Glorious”) is a sister to some former One Voice choir members. Mr. Fukuda was as adorable in person as he appears in the video.

I wish I could say I was exaggerating, but I really do want to hear David’s voice in my mind and heart at all times. I was so glad to be able to go to the concert. What a thrill :).
