· · ·

Letra:

Thought I saw you in the battleship, but it was only a look a like, she was nothing but a vision trick, under the warning light. She was close, close enough to be your ghost, but my chances turned to toast, when I asked her if I could call her your name.

I thought I saw you in the rusty hook, huddled up in wicked chair, I wondered up for a closer look, and kissed who ever was sitting there. She was close, and she held me very tightly, till I asked awfully politely, please can I call you her name.

And I elongated my lift home, yeah, I let him go the long way round, I smelt your scent in the seatbelt, and I kept my shortcuts to myself. I thought I saw you in the parrots beak, messing with the smoke alarm, it was too loud for me to hear her speak, and she had a broken arm.

It was close, so close that the walls walls were wet, and she wrote it out in letrased, no, you can call me her name. Tell me wehere’s your hiding place, I’m worried I’ll forget your face. And I asked everyone, and I’m beggining to think I imagined you all along. I elongated my lift home. Yeah I let him go the long way round, I smelt your scent on the seatbelt, and kept the shortcuts to myself.

I saw your sister in the cornerstone, on the phone to the middle man, when I saw that she was on her own, I thought she might understand, she was close, ell you couldn’t get much closer, she said I’m really not supposed to but yes, you can call me anything you want.

Orange Juice. I can’t help myself.

noviembre 5, 2009


Video en directo. Canción.

Nombre: I can’t help myself.

· · ·

Letra:

I always thought I could, fall from a height, land on my feet, now I’m considering, throwing in the towel, admitting defeat, just like the Four Tops, I can’t help myself, I can’t help myself, I can’t help myself, I can’t help myself.

Nothing worth finding, is easily found, try as we might, that was supposed to sound, very profound, it probably sounds dry, just like the Four Tops, I can’t help myself, I can’t help myself, I can’t help myself, I can’t help myself, myself myself myself. Just like the Four Tops, I can’t help myself, I can’t help myself, I can’t help myself, I can’t help myself, I can’t help myself, I can’t help myself.

I felt I had to tell the world, about you, I felt I had to tell the world, about you, yes I felt I had to tell the world, tell the world, tell the world, I can’t help myself, tell the world, tell the world, tell the world about you, baby, I can’t help myself, tell the world, tell the world, c’mon c’mon c’mon, c’mon c’mon c’mon, I can’t help myself, I can’t help myself, tell the world, tell the world, I can’t help myself.

The Police. Peanuts.

Video en directo. Canción.

Nombre: Peanuts.

· · ·

Letra:

It’s all a game, you’re not the same, your famous name, the price of fame. O no — try to liberate me, I said o no — stay and irritate me, I said o no — try to elevate me, I said o no — just a fallen hero. Don’t wanna hear about the drugs you’re taking, don’t wanna read about the love you’re making, don’t wanna hear about the life you’re faking, don’t wanna read about the muck they’re raking.

You sang your song, for much too long, the songs they’re wrong, the bread has gone. O no — try to liberate me, I said o no — stay and irritate me, I said o no — try to elevate me, I said o no — just a fallen hero. Don’t wanna hear about the drugs you’re taking, don’t wanna read about the love you’re making, don’t wanna hear about the life you’re faking, don’t wanna read about the muck they’re raking.

It’s all a game, you’re not the same, your famous name, the price of fame. O no — try to liberate me, I said o no — stay and irritate me, I said o no — try to elevate me, I said o no — just a fallen hero. Don’t wanna find out what you’ve been taking, don’t wanna read about the love you’re making, don’t wanna hear about the life you’re faking, don’t wanna read about the muck they’re raking. Peanuts, peanuts, peanuts.

Letra:

I’m so glad I’ve found this, I’m so glad I did. I’m so glad I’ve found this, I’m so glad I did. People are fragile things, you should know by now, be careful what you put them through. People are fragile things, you should know by now, you’ll speak when you’re spoken to.

It breaks when you don’t force it, it breaks when you don’t try, it breaks if you don’t force it, it breaks if you don’t try. People are fragile things, you should know by now, be careful what you put them through. People are fragile things, you should know by now, you’ll speak when you’re spoken to.

With one hand you calm me, with one hand I’m still, with one hand you calm me, with one hand I’m still. People are fragile things, you should know by now, be careful what you put them through. People are fragile things, you should know by now, you’ll speak when you’re spoken to. Ah. You’ll speak when you’re spoken to, you’ll speak when you’re spoken to, he’ll speak when he’s spoken to, she’ll speak when she’s spoken to.

I wish I could live free, hope it’s not beyond me, settling down takes time, one day we’ll live together, and life will be better, I have it here, yeah, in my mind.

aBaby, you know someday you’ll slow, And baby, my hearts been breaking. I gave a lot to you, I take a lot from you too. You slave a lot for me, guess you could say I gave you my edge.

New Order. Love less.

octubre 11, 2009

Canción.

Nombre: Love less.

· · ·

Letra:

There was a time I call before, when all I knew was what I saw, the keeper of a major key, I lived in a town called Liberty. I worked hard to give you all the things that you need, and almost anything that you see, I spent a lifetime working on you, and you won’t even talk to me.

Can’t you see why don’t you look at me, it’s not your right to be so much my enemy.I knew that I could never give, you knew that you could not forgive, no price or pride would fall before, a ten foot wall without a door. But you know I watch every step that you make, to find some other fool you can take, and I don’t know why I even try, because it all comes down to this.

Can’t you see why don’t you look at me, it’s not your right to be so much my enemy. Can’t you see why don’t you look at me, it’s not your right to be so much my enemy. I worked hard to give you all the things that you need, and almost anything that you see, I spent a lifetime working on you, and you won’t even talk to me.

Talking Heads. Listening Wind.

septiembre 26, 2009

Canción.

Nombre: Listening Wind.

· · ·

Letra:

Mojique sees his village from a nearby hill, Mojique thinks of the days before Americans came, he sees the foreigners in growing numbers, he sees the foreigners in fancy houses, he thinks of the days that he can still remember…now.

Mojique holds a package in his quivering hands, Mojique sends the package to the American man, softly, he glides along the streets and alleys, up comes the wind that makes them run for cover, he feels the time is surely now or never…more.

The wind in my heart, the wind in my heart, the dust in my head, the dust in my head, the wind in my heart, the wind in my heart, (come to) drive them away, drive them away.

Mojique buys equipment in the marketplace, Mojique plants devices in the free trade zone, he feels the wind is lifting up his people, he calls the wind to guide him on his mission, he know his friend the wind is always standing…by.

Mojique smells the wind that comes from far away, Mojique waits for news in a quiet place, he feels the presence of the wind around him, he feels the power of the past behind him, he has the knowledge of the wind to guide him…on.

The wind in my heart, the wind in my heart, the dust in my head, the dust in my head, the wind in my heart, the wind in my heart, (come to) drive them away, drive them away.

Cure. Fire in Cairo.

septiembre 24, 2009

Video de versión en directo. Canción.

Nombre: Fire in Cairo.

· · ·

Letra:

Slowly fading blue, the eastern hollows catch, the dying sun, night time follows, silent and black, mirror pool mirrors, the lonely place, where I meet you.

See your head, in the fading light, and through the dark, your eyes shine bright, and burn like fire, burn like fire in Cairo, burn like fire, burn like fire in Cairo.

Shifting crimson veil, silken hips slide, under my hand, swollen lips whisper my name, and I yearn, you take me in your arms, and start to burn.

F.I.R.E.I.N.C.A.I.R.O, then the heat disappears, and the mirage, fades away…

F.I.R.E.I.N.C.A.I.R.O, burn like a fire in Cairo, burn like a fire, blaze like a fire in Cairo, blaze like a fire, flare with a wonderful light, like a fire in Cairo, burn like fire, burn like, fire in Cairo.

Joy Division. Disorder

septiembre 24, 2009

Video de versión en directo. Canción.

Nombre: Disorder.

· · ·

Letra:

I’ve been waiting for a guide to come and take me by the hand, could these sensations make me feel the pleasures of a normal man? These sensations barely interest me for another day, I’ve got the spirit, lose the feeling, take the shock away.

It’s getting faster, moving faster now, it’s getting out of hand, on the tenth floor, down the back stairs, it’s a no man’s land, lights are flashing, cars are crashing, getting frequent now, I’ve got the spirit, lose the feeling, let it out somehow.

What means to you, what means to me, and we will meet again, I’m watching you, I’m watching her, I’ll take no pity from your friends, who is right, who can tell, and who gives a damn right now, until the spirit new sensation takes hold, then you know, until the spirit new sensation takes hold, then you know, until the spirit new sensation takes hold, then you know, I’ve got the spirit, but lose the feeling, I’ve got the spirit, but lose the feeling. Feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling, feeling.
