Closer





Hey, I was doing just fine before I met you
I drink too much and that's an issue but I'm okay
Hey, you tell your friends it was nice to meet them
But I hope I never see them again

I know it breaks your heart
Moved to the city in a broke down car
And four years, no calls
Now you're looking pretty in a hotel bar
And I can't stop
No, I can't stop

So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover
That I know you can't afford
Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
Pull the sheets right off the corner
Of the mattress that you stole
From your roommate back in Boulder
We ain't ever getting older

We ain't ever getting older
We ain't ever getting older

You look as good as the day I met you
I forget just why I left you, I was insane
Stay and play that Blink-182 song
That we beat to death in Tuscon, okay

I know it breaks your heart
Moved to the city in a broke down car
And four years, no call
Now I'm looking pretty in a hotel bar
And I can't stop
No, I can't stop

So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover
That I know you can't afford
Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
Pull the sheets right off the corner
Of the mattress that you stole
From your roommate back in Boulder
We ain't ever getting older

We ain't ever getting older
We ain't ever getting older

So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover
That I know you can't afford
Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
Pull the sheets right off the corner
Of the mattress that you stole
From your roommate back in Boulder
We ain't ever getting older
We ain't ever getting older (we ain't ever getting older)
We ain't ever getting older (we ain't ever getting older)
We ain't ever getting older (we ain't ever getting older)
We ain't ever getting older

We ain't ever getting older
No we ain't ever getting older

Praying For Time





These are the days of the open hand
They will not be the last
Look around now
These are the days of the beggars and the choosers

This is the year of the hungry man
Whose place is in the past
Hand in hand with ignorance
And legitimate excuses

The rich declare themselves poor
And most of us are not sure
If we have too much
But we'll taking our chance to say
I sang twenty years and a day
But nothing changed
The human race found some other guy
And walked into the flame

And it's hard to love, there's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope
When there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too late
Well maybe we should all be praying for time

Doo oh oh
Do you think we have time?
Do you
Do you think we have time?

These are the days of the empty hand
Oh, you hold on to what you can
And charity, charity is a coat you wear twice a year

This is the year of the guilty man
Your television takes a stand
And you find that what was over there is over here

So you scream from behind your door
Say what's mine is mine and not yours
I may have too much but I'll take my chances
I sang twenty years and a day
'Cause nothing changed
The human race found some other guy
And walked into the flames

It's hard to love, Jesus, there's so much to hate
Hanging on to hope, there is no hope to speak of
And the wounded skies above say it's much too late
Then maybe we should all be praying for time

Doo doo doo
Do you think we have time?
Do you
Do you think we have time?
Lord, give us time

Caroline









If you want to turn me onto
Anything you really want to
Turn me onto your love sweet love

If the night-time is the right time
Anytime of yours is my time
We can find time for love sweet love

Come on sweet Caroline
You're my sweet Caroline
You know I want to take you
I've really got to make you
Come on sweet Caroline
Take my hand together we can rock-n-roll

When I'm thinking of you sleeping
I'm at home alone and weeping
Are you keeping your love sweet love

Do you still care when I'm not there
Do you really wish I was there
Can I come there for love sweet love

Come on sweet Caroline
You're my sweet Caroline
You know I want to take you
I've really got to make you
Come on sweet Caroline
Take my hand together we can rock-n-roll

Walking On The Waves







An island in the sunlight
Laughter in the rain
A whisky in the darkness
It all feels just the same.

Watch the sunset over Hynish
See the twilight merge to dawn
Hear the waves caress the shoreline
As the island carries on.

I've been walking, walking these shores all my days
But with you by my side I am walking on the waves.

There's two lovers on the machair
And they walk down to the sand
Their silhouettes are on the water
As they paddle hand in hand.

And it's a game of sweet surrender
When there's nothing left to say
And there are moments to remember
Once these days are long away.

I've been walking, walking these shores all my days
But with you by my side I am walking on the waves.

So you look out on the ocean
See the headlands and the strands
And you wonder what horizons
Will shape tomorrow's plans

And through the turning of the seasons
And the cycle of the days
Every drink's another reason
To let tomorrow sail away.

I've been walking, walking these shores all my days
But with you by my side I am walking on the waves.

The surging of the ocean,
The breakers on the shore,
The echoes of our bodies,
To the lovers' dream we soar.

I've been walking, walking these shores all my days
But with you by my side I am walking on the waves.

Don't Wanna Know







I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, no
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don't wanna know

Wasted
And the more I drink the more I think about you
Oh no, no, I can't take it
Baby every place I go reminds me of you

Do you think of me
Of what we used to be?
Is it better now
That I'm not around?
My friends are actin' strange
They don't bring up your name
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?

I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, no
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don't wanna know

And every time I go out, yeah
I hear it from this one, I hear it from that one
That you got someone new, yeah
I see but don't believe it
Even in my head you're still in my bed
Maybe I'm just a fool

Do you think of me
Of what we used to be?
Is it better now
That I'm not around?
My friends are actin' strange
They don't bring up your name
Are you happy now?
Are you happy now?

I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, no
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don't wanna know

No more “please stop”
No more hashtag boo'd up screenshots
No more tryna make me jealous on your birthday
You know just how I make it better on your birthday, oh
Do he do you like this, do he woo you like this?
Do he lay it down for you, touch your poona like this?
Matter of fact, never mind, we gon' let the past be
Maybe his right now, but your body's still with me, whoa

I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, no
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, no
I don't wanna know, know, know, know
Who's taking you home, home, home, home
And loving you so, so, so, so
The way I used to love you, oh
I don't wanna know

Lucky Man








He had white horses
And ladies by the score
All dressed in satin
And waiting by the door

Ooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooh, what a lucky man he was

White lace and feathers
They made up his bed
A gold covered mattress
On which he was laid

Ooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooh, what a lucky man he was

He went to fight wars
For his country and his king
Of his honor and his glory
The people would sing

Ooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooh, what a lucky man he was

A bullet had found him
His blood ran as he cried
No money could save him
So he laid down and he died

Ooh, what a lucky man he was
Ooh, what a lucky man he was

Bad Woman





I'm gonna light me a candle
And say a prayer tonight
Cause a black shadow crossed my path
And my baby ain't coming back

There's a cold wind-a blowin'
Even tho its 96 degrees
And I'm crying out for someone
To help me, even tho i can't see

That she's a bad bad woman
Spending every dollar that i make
Oh she's a bad bad woman
And theres nothing I can say

Oh gonna buy me a black eldorado
Or maybe a baby-red corvette
anything anything
to help me try and forget

Those looks, legs and kisses
Are why she closed her eyes
She'd wrap herself around me
I can't believe they were lies

Cause she's a bad bad woman
She's a bad bad woman (she's such a bad woman)
She's a bad bad woman
She's a bad bad girl

She's a bad bad woman (I don't want her no more)
She's a bad bad girl
She's a bad bad woman

Whooooaaaa I know
I know I know I know
I'm not the only one
There's a whole lotta pain goin' round
But I can't think about anyone else
Cause it's me that's gonna drown
Throw me a lot-saver
Cause I'm drowning in a sea of despair
She's no good (I know she's no good)
You can do better (Na could I really do better )
Because I'm oooh going down

She's a bad bad woman
She's a bad bad girl
She's a bad bad woman
She's a bad bad girl

Si jamais j'oublie





Rappelle-moi le jour et l'année
Rappelle-moi le temps qu'il faisait
Et si j'ai oublié
Tu peux me secouer

Et s'il me prend l'envie d'm'en aller
Enferme-moi et jette la clé
Aux piqûres de rappel
Dis comment je m'appelle

Si jamais j'oublie, les nuits que j'ai passées
Les guitares et les cris
Rappelle-moi qui je suis
Pourquoi, je suis en vie
Si jamais j'oublie les jambes à mon cou
Si un jour je fuis
Rappelle- moi qui je suis
Ce que je m'étais promis

Rappelle-moi mes rêves les plus fous
Rappelle-moi ces larmes sur mes joues
Et si j'ai oublié, combien j'aimais chanter

Si jamais j'oublie, les nuits que j'ai passées
Les guitares et les cris
Rappelle-moi qui je suis
Pourquoi je suis en vie
Si jamais j'oublie les jambes à mon cou
Si un jour je fuis
Rappelle-moi qui je suis
Ce que je m'étais promis

Rappelle-moi qui je suis
Si jamais j'oublie les jambes à mon cou
Si un jour je fuis
Rappelle-moi qui je suis
Ce que je m'étais promis
Si jamais j'oublie, les nuits que j'ai passées
Les guitares et les cris
Rappelle-moi qui je suis
Pourquoi, je suis en vie
Rappelle-moi le jour et l'année

Longer







Longer than there've been fishes in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there've been stars up in the heavens
I've been in love with you
 
Stronger than any mountain cathedral
Truer than any tree ever grew
Deeper than any forest primeval
I am in love with you
 
I'll bring fire in the winters
You'll send showers in the springs
We'll fly through the falls and summers
With love on our wings
 
Through the years, as the fire starts to mellow
Burning lines in the book of our lives
Though the binding cracks and the pages start to yellow
I'll be in love with you
I'll be in love with you
 
Longer than there've been fishes in the ocean
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there've been stars up in the heavens
I've been in love with you
I am in love with you

Pequeño vals vienés









En Viena hay diez muchachas,
un hombro donde solloza la muerte
y un bosque de palomas disecadas.
Hay un fragmento de la mañana
en el museo de la escarcha.
Hay un salón con mil ventanas.
        ¡Ay, ay, ay, ay!
Toma este vals con la boca cerrada. 

Este vals, este vals, este vals,
de sí, de muerte y de coñac
que moja su cola en el mar. 

Te quiero, te quiero, te quiero,
con la butaca y el libro muerto,
por el melancólico pasillo,
en el oscuro desván del lirio,
en nuestra cama de la luna
y en la danza que sueña la tortuga.
        ¡Ay, ay, ay, ay!
Toma este vals de quebrada cintura. 

En Viena hay cuatro espejos
donde juegan tu boca y los ecos.
Hay una muerte para piano
que pinta de azul a los muchachos.
Hay mendigos por los tejados.
Hay frescas guirnaldas de llanto.
        ¡Ay, ay, ay, ay!
Toma este vals que se muere en mis brazos. 

Porque te quiero, te quiero, amor mío,
en el desván donde juegan los niños,
soñando viejas luces de Hungría
por los rumores de la tarde tibia,
viendo ovejas y lirios de nieve
por el silencio oscuro de tu frente.
        ¡Ay, ay, ay, ay!
Toma este vals del "Te quiero siempre". 

En Viena bailaré contigo
con un disfraz que tenga
cabeza de río.
¡Mira qué orilla tengo de jacintos!
Dejaré mi boca entre tus piernas,
mi alma en fotografías y azucenas,
y en las ondas oscuras de tu andar
quiero, amor mío, amor mío, dejar,
violín y sepulcro, las cintas del vals.











Federico García Lorca, 1929-1930

Jolene





Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can
Your beauty is beyond compare
With flaming locks of auburn hair
With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green

Your smile is like a breath of spring
Your voice is soft like summer rain
And I cannot compete with you, Jolene

He talks about you in his sleep
There's nothing I can do to keep
From crying when he calls your name, Jolene

And I can easily understand
How you could easily take my man
But you don't know what he means to me, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him just because you can

You could have your choice of men
But I could never love again
He's the only one for me, Jolene

I had to have this talk with you
My happiness depends on you
And whatever you decide to do, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
I'm begging of you please don't take my man
Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene
Please don't take him even though you can
Jolene, Jolene

These are the days of our lives





Sometimes I get to feelin'
I was back in the old days - long ago
When we were kids when we were young
Thing seemed so perfect - you know
The days were endless we were crazy we were young
The sun was always shinin' - we just lived for fun
Sometimes it seems like lately - I just don't know
The rest of my life's been just a show

Those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing is true
When I look and I find I still love you

You can't turn back the clock you can't turn back the tide
Ain't that a shame
I'd like to go back one time on a roller coaster ride
When life was just a game
No use in sitting and thinkin' on what you did
When you can lay back and enjoy it through your kids
Sometimes it seems like lately - I just don't know
Better sit back and go with the flow

Cos these are the days of our lives
They've flown in the swiftness of time
These days are all gone now but some things remain
When I look and I find no change

Those were the days of our lives - yeah
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing's still true
When I look and I find
I still love you

I still love you.

Skibbereen









O, Father dear, I oft times heard you talk of Erin's Isle,
Her lofty scene, her valleys green, her mountains rude and wild
They say it is a pretty place where in a prince might dwell,
Oh why did you abandon it, the reason to me tell?

Oh son I loved my native land with energy and pride
'Til a blight came over on my crops, my sheep and cattle died,
The rent and taxes were so high, I could not them redeem,
And that's the cruel reason why I left old Skibbereen.

Oh, It's well I do remember that bleak December day,
The landlord and the sheriff came to drive us all away
They set my roof on fire with their demon yellow spleen
And that's another reason why I left old Skibbereen.

Your mother too, God rest her soul, fell on the snowy ground,
She fainted in her anguish seeing the desolation round.
She never rose but passed away from life to mortal dream,
She found a quiet grave, my boy, in dear old Skibbereen.

What a Wonderful World





I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you.

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world

Lost On You





When you get older, plainer, saner
Will you remember all the danger
We came from?
Burning like embers, falling, tender
Longing for the days of no surrender
Years ago
And will you know
 
So smoke 'em if you got 'em
'Cause it's going down
All I ever wanted was you
I'll never get to heaven
'Cause I don't know how
 
Let's raise a glass or two
To all the things I've lost on you
Oh-oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh-oh
Just that you could cut me loose
Oh-oh
After everything I've lost on you
Is that lost on you?
 
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Is that lost on you?
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
Baby, is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?
 
Wishin' I could see the machinations
Understand the toil of expectations
In your mind
Hold me like you never lost your patience
Tell me that you love me more than hate me
All the time
And you're still mine
 
So smoke 'em if you got 'em
'Cause it's going down
All I ever wanted was you
Let's take a drink of heaven
This can turn around
 
Let's raise a glass or two
To all the things I've lost on you
Oh-oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh-oh
Just that you could cut me loose
Oh-oh
After everything I've lost on you
Is that lost on you?
 
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Is that lost on you?
Oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
Baby, is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?
 
Let's raise a glass or two
To all the things I've lost on you
Oh-oh
Tell me are they lost on you?
Oh-oh
Just that you could cut me loose
Oh-oh
After everything I've lost on you
Is that lost on you?
Is that lost on you?

Herido de amor






Amor, amor
que está herido.
Herido de amor huido;
herido,
muerto de amor.
Decid a todos que ha sido
el ruiseñor.
Bisturí de cuatro filos,
garganta rota y olvido.
Cógeme la mano, amor,
que vengo muy mal herido,
herido de amor huido,
¡herido!
¡muerto de amor!

Andar





Aunque el camino sea estrecho,
El polvo se pegue al cuerpo,
Aunque los vientos me arrastren,
Sigo mis sendas sin lastre 
 
Andar como un vagabundo,
Sin rumbo fijo, sin meta,
A vueltas de veleta,
Al soplo del viento al azar,
El caso es andar
El caso es andar 
 
No me pertenece el paisaje,
voy sin equipaje por la noche larga,
Quiero ser peregrino por los caminos de España
Quiero ser peregrino por los caminos de España 
 
No me propongo destino,
No quito puestos a nadie,
Porque mi puesto es el aire,
Como el olor del buen vino 
 
Sabiendo que nunca es tarde,
Mi pie siempre en el estribo,
Y cada paso que piso,
Un paso menos que dar,
El caso es andar,
El caso es andar 
 
No me pertenece el paisaje,
voy sin equipaje por la noche larga,
Quiero ser peregrino por los caminos de España,
Quiero ser peregrino por los caminos de España 
 
No dejo rastro ni huella
Por no ser ni soy recuerdo
Yo paso haciendo silencio
sin ser esclavo del tiempo 
 
Por límite el horizonte
Y por frontera la mar
Por no tener ni tengo norte
Y no sé lo que es llegar
El caso es andar
El caso es andar 
 
No me pertenece el paisaje,
voy sin equipaje por la noche larga,
Quiero ser peregrino por los caminos de España
Quiero ser peregrino por los caminos de España

Shape of my heart







He deals the cards as a meditation
And those he plays never suspect
He doesn't play for the money he wins
He don't play for respect

He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of a probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart

He may play the Jack of diamonds
He may lay the Queen of spades
He may conceal a King in his hand
While the memory of it fades

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart
That's not the shape, the shape of my heart

And if I told you that I loved you
You'd maybe think there's something wrong
I'm not a man of too many faces
The mask I wear is one

But those who speak know nothing
And find out to their cost
Like those who curse their luck in too many places
And those who fear a loss

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart
That's not the shape of my heart
That's not the shape, the shape of my heart

Another Brick in the Wall





We don't need no education
We dont need no thought control

No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone

Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it's just another brick in the wall
All in all you're just another brick in the wall

We don't need no education
We dont need no thought control

No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone

Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it's just another brick in the wall
All in all you're just another brick in the wall

"Wrong, Do it again!"
"If you don't eat your meat
you can't have any pudding
How can you have any pudding
if you don't eat your meat?"
"You! Yes, you behind the bike sheds
stand still laddie!"

Back to black







He left no time to regret
Kept his lips wet
With his same old safe bet
Me and my head high
And my tears dry
Get on without my guy
You went back to what you knew
So far removed from all that we went through
And I tread a troubled track
My odds are stacked
I'll go back to black

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
I go back to us

I love you much
It's not enough
You love blow, and I love puff
And life is like a pipe
And I'm a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
 
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to

Black
Black
Black
Black
Black
Black
Black
I go back to
I go back to

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to black

Too Much Love Will Kill You





I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone
For much too long

I feel like no one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking back to find
Where I went wrong

Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between the lover and the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster 'cos you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you every time

I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems like there's no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down

How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose?
No, there's no making sense of it
Every way I go I'm bound to lose

Too much love will kill you
Just as sure as none at all.
It'll drain the power that's in you
Make you plead and scream and crawl
And the pain will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you every time

Too much love will kill you
It'll make your life a lie
Yes, too much love will kill you
And you won't understand why
You'd give your life, you'd sell your soul
But here it comes again
Too much love will kill you
In the end...
In the end.

Sleeping





Are you sleeping?
Still dreaming?
Still drifting off alone...
I'm not leaving with this feeling
So you'd better best be told
And how in the world did you come
To be such a lazy love?

It's so simple, and fitting
The path that you are on
We're not talking, there's no secrets
There's just a note that you have gone
And all that you've ever owned
Is packed in the hall to go

And how am I supposed to live without you?
A wrong word said in anger and you were gone

I'm not listening for signals
It's all dust now on the shelf
Are you still working? Still counting?
Still buried in yourself?
And how in the world did we come
To have such an absent love?

And how am I supposed to live without you?
A wrong word said in anger and you were gone
And how am I supposed to live without anyone?

And how in the world did you come
To be such a lazy love?
And where did you go?

Red Rain








Red rain is coming down
Red rain
Red rain is pouring down
Pouring down all over me


I am standing up at the water's edge in my dream
I cannot make a single sound as you scream
It can't be that cold, the ground is still warm to touch
We touch, this place is so quiet, sensing that storm


Red rain is coming down
Red rain
Red rain is pouring down
Pouring down all over me


Well I've seen them buried in a sheltered place in this town
They tell you that this rain can sting, and look down
There is no blood around, see no sign of pain
Hay ay ay no pain
Seeing no red at all, see no rain


Red rain is coming down
Red rain
Red rain is pouring down
Pouring down all over me


Red rain
Ohhhh
Putting the pressure on much harder now
To return again and again
Just let the red rain splash you
Let the rain fall on your skin
I come to you defenses down
With the trust of a child


Red rain is coming down
Red rain
Red rain is pouring down
Pouring down all over me

And I can't watch any more
No more denial
It's so hard to lay down in all of this

Red rain coming down
Red rain
Red rain is pouring down
I'm bathing in
Red rain coming down
Red rain is falling down
Red rain is coming down all over me
I'm begging you

Red rain coming down
Red rain coming down
Red rain coming down
Red rain coming down

Over me in the red red sea
Over me
Over me
Red rain

A hard rain's a gonna fall





Oh, where have you been, my blue-eyed son?
And where have you been my darling young one?
I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains
I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways
I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans
I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

Oh, what did you see, my blue eyed son?
And what did you see, my darling young one?
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin'
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a-bleedin'
I saw a white ladder all covered with water
I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken
I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

And what did you hear, my blue-eyed son?
And what did you hear, my darling young one?
I heard the sound of a thunder that roared out a warnin'
I heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world
I heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a-blazin'
I heard ten thousand whisperin' and nobody listenin'
I heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin'
Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter
Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

Oh, what did you meet my blue-eyed son ?
Who did you meet, my darling young one?
I met a young child beside a dead pony
I met a white man who walked a black dog
I met a young woman whose body was burning
I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow
I met one man who was wounded in love
I met another man who was wounded in hatred
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
And it's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

And what'll you do now, my blue-eyed son?
And what'll you do now my darling young one?
I'm a-goin' back out 'fore the rain starts a-fallin'
I'll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest
Where the people are a many and their hands are all empty
Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters
Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison
And the executioner's face is always well hidden
Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten
Where black is the color, where none is the number
And I'll tell and speak it and think it and breathe it
And reflect from the mountain so all souls can see it
And I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin'
But I'll know my song well before I start singing
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a-gonna fall.

Kiss





You don't have to be beautiful
To turn me on
I just need your body baby
From dusk till dawn
You don't need experience
To turn me out
You just leave it all up to me
I'm gonna show you what it's all about

You don't have to be rich
To be my girl
You don't have to be cool
To rule my world
Ain't no particular sign I'm more compatible with
I just want your extra time and your

Kiss,
Oh oh

Portrait of a Man







I am painting in oil, a portrait of a man
Who has taken all the heart aches,
And all the pain he can stand. 

I am using all the colors of blue,
I have here on my stand.
I am painting in oil, a portrait of a man. 

I can tell he is dying. I see death in his eyes.
Oh yes I know, I know when he's crying
'Tis my tears, my tears that he cries. 

I am so tired of how he feels inside,
I mix the paint with my hand.
I am painting in oil, a portrait of a man. 

As I paint a wrinkled brow and hair that is turning grey,
Oh tell me how, how can I paint a smile
And eyes that keep turning away? 

I am using all the colors of blue
I have here on my stand.
I am painting in oil, a portrait and I'm the man. 

A portrait and I am the man.

Quiero beber y no olvidar




A veces quiero que nunca se acabe la noche
seguir la música hasta el horizonte
quiero beber y no olvidar
quiero ser feliz y volver a empezar.

Siempre quiero poner arriba lo de abajo
quiero que no sobreviva el desengaño
quiero beber y no olvidar
quiero ser feliz y volver a empezar.

Quiero ser mar sólo consigo espuma
quiero avanzar sólo consigo espuma
sin ti no puedo por qué no me ayudas
todo se vuelven dudas.

A veces quiero irme contigo a la luna
y que no exista la palabra “nunca”
quiero beber y no olvidar
quiero ser feliz y volver a empezar.
Siempre quiero hacerle trampas a la muerte
quiero sentir la primavera en septiembre
quiero beber y no olvidar
quiero ser feliz y ya nunca llorar.

Quiero ser mar sólo consigo espuma
quiero avanzar sólo consigo espuma
sin ti no puedo por qué no me ayudas
todo se vuelven dudas.

Quiero se mar sólo consigo espuma

Siempre quiero que todo sea diferente
y también que la locura se premie
quiero beber y no olvidar
quiero ser feliz y volver a empezar.
Siempre quiero que nada tenga ningún dueño
quiero volver realidades los sueños
quiero beber y no olvidar
quiero ser feliz y ya nunca llorar.

Quiero ser mar sólo consigo espuma
quiero avanzar sólo consigo espuma
sin ti no puedo porqué no me ayudas
todo se vuelven dudas.

Son nata a lagrimar





Mai più sperar potrò.  

Son nata a lagrimar,
e il dolce mio conforto,
ah, sempre piangerò. 

Son nato a sospirar,
e il dolce mio conforto,
ah, sempre piangerò. 

Se il fato ci tradì,
sereno e lieto dì,
mai più sperar potrò. 

Son nata a lagrimar,
e il dolce mio conforto,
ah, sempre piangerò.

Son nato a sospirar,
e il dolce mio conforto,
ah, sempre piangerò.

Bruxelles





C`tait au temps o Bruxelles rvait
C`tait au temps du cinma muet
C`tait au temps o Bruxelles chantait
C`tait au temps o Bruxelles bruxellait

Place de Broukre on voyait des vitrines
Avec des hommes des femmes en crinoline
Place de Broukre on voyait l`omnibus
Avec des femmes des messieurs en gibus

Et sur l`impriale, le coeur dans les toiles
Il y avait mon grand-pre , Il y avait ma grand-mre
Il tait militaire , elle tait fonctionnaire
Il pensait pas elle pensait rien
Et on voudrait que je sois malin

C`tait au temps o Bruxelles chantait
C`tait au temps du cinma muet
C`tait au temps o Bruxelles rvait
C`tait au temps o Bruxelles bruxellait

Sur les pavs de la place Sainte-Catherine
Dansaient les hommes les femmes en crinoline
Sur les pavs dansaient les omnibus
Avec des femmes des messieurs en gibus

Et sur l`impriale, le coeur dans les toiles
Il y avait mon grand-pre, Il y avait ma grand-mre
Il avait su y faire, elle l`avait laiss faire
Ils l`avaient donc fait tous les deux
Et on voudrait que je sois srieux

C`tait au temps o Bruxelles rvait
C`tait au temps du cinma muet
C`tait au temps o Bruxelles dasnait
C`tait au temps o Bruxelles bruxellait

Sous les lampions de la place Sainte-Justine
Chantaient les hommes les femmes en crinoline
Sous les lampions dansaient les omnibus
Avec des femmes des messieurs en gibus

Et sur l`impriale, le coeur dans les toiles
Il y avait mon grand-pre, Il y avait ma grand-mre
Il attendait la guerre, elle attendait mon pre
Ils taient gais comme le canal
Et on voudrait que j`aie le moral

C`tait au temps o Bruxelles rvait
C`tait au temps du cinma muet
C`tait au temps o Bruxelles chantait
C`tait au temps o Bruxelles bruxellait

Calling You






A desert road from Vegas to nowhere
Some place better than where you've been
A coffee machine that needs some fixing
In a little cafe just around the bend

I am calling you
Can't you hear me
I am calling you

A hot dry wind blows right thru me
Your baby's crying and I can't sleep
But we all know a change is coming
Coming closer sweet release

I am calling you
I know you hear me
I am calling you Oh
