Say by John Mayer theme song of The Bucket List

Late last night, after watching ‘Fated to Love You’ on GMA 7 (don’t ask anything about this Ade), my girlfriend and I decided to stay up a bit longer and watch “The Bucket List” on HBO.

The movie starred Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, two of the my most favorite actors, in which they played the characters of Edward Cole and Carter Chambers respectively, two terminally ill old men who went on a road trip to fulfill a wish list of things to do before they “kick the bucket.”

The movie was something I’m not afraid to admit that made me sappy and teary-eyed. It reminded me once more of a recent great loss, of which I’m still struggling to get over with. It also reminded me of the class discussions we had in our Philosophy classes which would always be repeated in drinking sessions with my buddies; “What are the things you want to do before you die?

My constant answer to that question and conversely, an item on my would-be ‘bucket list’ is to be remembered for being a change-maker. Be it large-scale or something simple, I’d die peacefully once I know I’ve changed something in this world, hopefully for the better.

The movie’s theme song, “Say” by John Mayer also struck me deep in the heart (I know I’m being cheesy again, but be quite Ade). The lyrics were simple yet a perfect fit to the film’s theme, the struggle to do the things you want before you “kick the bucket.”

Here’s the video and lyrics for you to enjoy as well.

Say by John Mayer

Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so-called problems,
Better put ‘em in quotations

Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say

Walking like a one man army
Fighting with the shadows in your head
Living out the same old moment
Knowing you’d be better off instead,
If you could only . . .

Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say

Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for giving over
You’d better know that in the end
It’s better to say too much
Then never say what you need to say again

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open

Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say

Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say

Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say
