    Anyone notice Luke in a trance-like state mouthing the words to a song he had never heard? I'm telling y'all, Alejandro is like the damn pied piper casting magic spells or something... Maybe he attended the Hogwarts School of Music... but whatever it is.. it's amazing.

    Compare this rendition where you can HEAR his guitar to the piece of crap released in the final...the one with the orchestra wearing knit hats..he's playing guitar and YOU DON'T HEAR ANY OF IT. NOT SO SUBTLE. AI SCREWED HIS PLAY OVER....THEY WERE THE WRECKING BALL AND RUINED HIS SONG. IDIOTS.

    when u are alone, do u think about him
    waiting by the phone to see if he has called u now

    but ive been by your side for ten years and counting
    dealing with your lies inside i am dying now
    im dying now
    all of the lies u said to me now babe
    all of the lies u
    all of the lies u say
    oh.. the lies u say
    oh the lies that u say
    look into my eyes and say u dont need me
    when i walk away this time u dont need me anymore
    and i dont need u anymore
    and when i walk away look into my eyes now
    i will fall way into the darkness now
    the darkness now
    all of the lies u said to me last night
    remember now
    oh the lies..
    oh the lies...
    oh the lies..
    stay the night?

      SAME! I changed my husband's contact name and picture in my cell to Alejandro! (soooo bad) ugh! but it feels so right, that when my husband calls or texts its like Alejandro is calling or texting me! and it helps that my husband looks similar to him :)
