Lifehouse & Goo Goo Dolls Tour 2007

Friday night = Date night.

Last Friday was one of the most anticipated date nights we've had -- seeing Lifehouse again after almost 2 years! Last time they came over was July 2005 in a smaller theater. Sweeps and I were actually just in front of the stage, super close I could almost reach on their shoes! When one of the guys from their group threw his guitar's pick to the audience, it fell off on my feet and we kept it as a keepsake, of course!

Goo Goo Dolls were good too, they were the main guys of the night (well, the tour's name is Goo Goo Dolls with Lifehouse, so what do we expect, right?)

They performed around 9pm-ish and it ended around 11pm-ish. Lifehouse sang maybe less than 10 songs earlier in the show, mostly from their new album that would be released tomorrow. We really got the tickets to see Lifehouse, so after they performed, we just kinda made the most out of the time that Goo Goo Dolls were performing. They did good, don't get me wrong, but the energy and excitement we had compared to when Lifehouse was on the stage was just so-so. But overall, it's really worth it!! I was totally amazed as I just used to see these guys from Meg Ryan & Nicolas Cage's movie soundtrack's video (City of Angels) like 10 years ago or something and last Friday, they were just there, right in front of me- in the flesh!!! Yes, they were the same group who sang "Iris" which for me, is one of the most "kilig" love songs ever.

On big shows like these, they usually don't allow cameras (video & stills) to be taken inside. It's good though that we took the risk of bringing our small digicam with built in video cam (duh, like as if there are models that exist without video cams these days??!!) They checked my purse and they didn't complain, so I got it in! Too bad we didnt have enough memory space left to take Goo Good Dolls in action, sweeps took a lot of video on the early part when LH was on the stage.

Here are some Goo Goo Dolls pics.






Here's the LH Tour 2007 shirt we got, sooo neat!!! :o)


I also uploaded one of Lifehouse's perfomance that we were able to record. It's embarrassing though as I can hear myself singing & screaming in the background, hahah - yeah, don't laugh ok? You'd hear me more somewhere at the end of the video. We were having such a great time, I didnt care if I was a lousy singer. Sweeps was doing the recording while he was sitted so you could see people passing. Too bad they didn't sing our "song", sweeps was saving the memory space for it. Ended up recording "Hanging By A Moment" instead.

This song is one of our favorites. When we were just "hanging out" I remembered sweeps would text me a part of the lyrics of some random songs and this was one of them.

Anyways, here it goes.



HANGING BY A MOMENT

desperate for changing
starving for truth
closer to where I started
chasing after you

I'm falling even more in love with you
letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you

forgetting all I'm lacking
completely incomplete
I'll take your invitation
you take all of me now

I'm falling even more in love with you
letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you

I'm living for the only thing I know
I'm running and not quite sure where to go
and I don't know what I'm diving into
just hanging by a moment here with you

there's nothing else to lose
there's nothing else to find
there's nothing in the world
that could change my mind
there is nothing else
there is nothing else
there is nothing else

desperate for changing
starving for truth
closer to where I started
chasing after you

I'm falling even more in love with you
letting go of all I've held onto
I'm standing here until you make me move
I'm hanging by a moment here with you

I'm living for the only thing I know
I'm running and not quite sure where to go
and I don't know what I'm diving into
just hanging by a moment here with you
just hanging by a moment
hanging by a moment
hanging by a moment
hanging by a moment here with you
