Earth Hour and a Song by Train


Every last week of March, the Earth Hour has always been observed worldwide. I got acquainted with this event way back when I was still with MMLDC and event hough I'm no longer there, I still get reminded about this occasion as SM malls also partake in this kind of endeavor.

Anyway, the Earth Hour aims to help our planet in a simple act -- by turning off lights for 60 minutes or so when the clock strikes 8:30 pm (PST). This gesture is also participated not only by households but business establishments as well. The activity aims to contribute an act in saving the planet in this time of climate change.

I'm proud to have been able to participate on this act too --with mom actually reminding me when the time came to turn off the lights :-). On the other hand, this one also caught my senses when I saw this tonight on Facebook, through my friend Jam Mamaril:



This song, Marry Me by the band Train was sung during the observance of Earth Hour here in the country at the SM Mall of Asia and was sung by former South Boarder vocalist Luke Mejares. It's another song I easily got glued to and even felt kind of giddy watching the video. Though, I'd like to think that this could be appropriate too for another event -- the Lovapalooza.

Anyway, the lyrics go like this:


Forever can never be long enough for me
Feel like I've had long enough with you
Forget the world now, we won't let them see
But there's one thing left to do

Now that the weight has lifted
Love has surely shifted my way

Marry me today and every day
Marry me if I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe
Say you will, say you will

Together can never be close enough for me
Feel like I am close enough to you
You wear white and I'll wear out the words I love you
And you're beautiful

Now that the wait is over
And love and has finally shown her my way

Marry me today and every day
Marry me if I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe
Say you will, say you will

Promise me you'll always be happy by my side
I promise to sing to you when all the music dies

And marry me today and everyday
Marry me if I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe
Say you will, say you will marry me

Oh, and just though of it, I'm hoping to spend Earth Hour 2012 at any SM mall just for a change.
