P.J. Harvey "Good Fortune"

Threw my bad fortune
Off the top of
A tall building
But I'd rather have done it with you

Your boy's smile
Five in the morning
Looked into your eyes
And I was really in love

In Chinatown
Hungover
You showed me
Just what I could do

Talking about
Time travel
And the meaning
And just what it was worth

And I feel like some bird of paradise
My bad fortune slipping away
And I feel the innocence of a child
Everybody's got something good to say

Things I once thought
Unbelievable
In my life
Have all taken place

When we walked through
Little Italy
I saw my reflection
Come right off your face

I paint pictures
To remember
You're too beautiful
To put into words

Like a gypsy
You dance in circles
All around me
And all over the world

And I feel like....

So I take my
Good fortune
And I fantasize
Of our leaving
Like some modern-day
Gypsy landslide

Like some modern-day
Bonnie and Clyde
On the run again


p.s. PJ Harveys guitar player Josh Klinghoffer has cowrote and recorded 7 albums with John Frusciante (the guitarist from the Red Hot Chili Peppers). I highly recommend this material to my friends here. So if you like the guitars of PJ Harvey and the Peppers, look up cd titles "Curtains" ,"A sphere in the heart of silence","The will to death","Inside of emptiness","Shadows collide with people","DC EP", Ataxia - Automatic Writing (with Joe Lally of Fugazi)

Cobweb Theory - The Plague Monkeys

I hate these severed hands
I turn you onto me
Are you still into me?

I know it, I know it
It's out there
Nothing, waiting

I know it, I know it
I have nothing to say, nothing to say
It's all here

So will you take it off my hands
Please

I hate these severed ties
I turn you onto me

Are you still on two minds

I know it, I know it
It's out there
Nothing, waiting

I know it, I know it
I have nothing to say
It's all here

Does it ever cross your mind?
Can you remember not being?
Does it ever cross your mind?
This static fear

You should know that nothing is so close to everything, everything

No more lightning, no more tungsten
No more radium, no more fuselage

Azure Ray - Raining In Athens

Still,
I think of you, baby
And how i grew old with you then
And this summer, you'll call maybe
And act as if we were old friends
You'd say, 'how are you, baby'
I'd say, 'it's raining in athens'
And to this day
I nurse the fever
That spoiled my poor heart
And i've mastered the art of dealing
Slipping away without falling apart
So when this summer, you call maybe
And ask how
I've been
I can be honest and answer plainly
'Since november, it's been raining'.

Acda & de Munnik > Zo is het goed

Nog even blijven
Nog even hier
Zeg me dat alles zo is als het zijn moet
Maak nieuwe woorden
Verzin het leven
Lieg lief omdat ik niks anders wil dan dit
En zo is het goed

Want de nacht verdwijnt
Je moet wel blind zijn wil je het ochtendlicht missen
Het komt eraan
Het komt met sprongen
En ik wil er niet aan
Nog even hier
Nog even samen
Even nog niemand die zegt hoe het ook kan
Drink de stitle
Proef het leven
Ik vraag je om niets
En krijg alles wat ik wil
En zo is het goed

Ik weet dat er een morgen komt
Jij weet dat ook
Maar al te goed
Van opeens weer zoveel dingen
Van opeens alles wat moet
Van opeens de hele wereld
Van iedereen over me heen
Van opeens weer zoveel liedjes
En dan laat ik je alleen

Maar nog even niet
Nog even rustig
Even nog doen alsof dit niet voorbij gaat
Drink de stilte
Heel voorzichtig
Hoe trager je het drinkt
Des te langer dat het lijkt
En zo is het goed

Drink de stilte
Hoe trager je het drinkt des te langer dat het lijkt
En zo is het goed

Zo is het goed.

hello saferide - the quizz

you look nice alright
and i like the way you nod after everything i say
like it actually means something
to you

and i like your record collection
Townes and Jens with a hint of Rickie Lee
and you’ve cleaned up the bathroom, made a really nice soup
but a bit too much sci-fi in your shelf with DVD’s

here are things you need to know about me
i’m weak right now, so weak right now
i need proof before i dare to open this heart
so i prepared a quiz for you

would you freak out if i said i liked you?
do you walk the line?
is your IQ higher than your neighbour’s?
and is it very much higher than mine?

can you sleep when i grind my teeth?
do you look away if i slob when i eat?
will you let me be myself?
can you at all times wear socks, because i’m still scared of feet?

and if i’d fall, would you pick me up?
and if i’d fall, would you pick me up?

do you talk in the middle of Seinfeld?
do you read more than two books a month?
do you get racist or sexist when you’ve had a few?
is it fine if i make more money than you?

have you slept with any people i work with?
is there anyone you’d rather wish i’d be?
do you still keep pictures of old girlfriends?
are they prettier than me?

and if i’d fall, would you pick me up
if i’d fall, would you pick me up

Amhrán an Síréana (Song to the Siren)
Ar na haigéin gan cruth
Dhein mé mo dhícheall meangadh
Gur tharraingt do mhéaracha
Mé lán le grá chuig do shúile
'S chan tú "Seol chugam, seol chugam
Tar chuig mo chuan
Seo mé Seo mé
Ag feitheamh ar do láimhe"

An rabhas i do bhrionglóidí
An raibh tú liom is mé faoi lán seoil
Seo mo amadaíocht,
Raic caillte ar do thrá
'S chan tú, "Ná leag, ná leag do lámh orm,
Ó mo chroí, ó mo chroí ag
Éalú ón mbrón"

Mé chomh soineanta le leanbh úr
Mé chomh fiáin leis an bhfarraige
An cóir dom seasamh san rabharta,
An cóir dom luí le bás mo chroí
Éist liom, "Snámh chugam, snámh chugam,
Tar i mo chuan
Seo mé Seo mé
Ag feitheamh i mo chuan"

Yes, but listening to me singing Gaelic will be as funny as to hear me sing Ukrainian!

One about unlucky love though I guess...

Garish Noch auf See

Sobald du dich zu Bett gelegt
hab' ich uns zwei in zwei gesaegt
sodenn bis morgen solang der Morgen
fuer mein Geheimnis Sorge traegt

Noch schlaflos trotz der Zweisamkeit
entfuehr ich dir mein Nachtgeleit
nur bis zum Morgen noch ist nicht morgen
bis dahin bleibt die Einsamkeit

Noch auf See

Mir war du hattest fantasiert
so hab' ich hier mein Ohr postiert
das bleibt bis morgen solang der Morgen
mit freiem Auge sichtbar wird

Auch hab' ich keinem anvertraut
dass alles hier sich angestaut
nur bis zum Morgen noch ist nicht morgen
und keiner hat bis jetzt durchschaut

Noch auf See

I'll practise with Runrig's Scot's Gaelic until the cd arrives and change to Irish then making everyone think i'm possessed (as you've lately said). Well, I probably am...

Leona Lewis - Bleeding love ()

Closed off from love
I didn't need the pain
Once or twice was enough
And it was all in vain
Time starts to pass
Before you know it you're frozen

But something happened
For the very first time with you
My heart melts into the ground
Found something true
And everyone's looking round
Thinking I'm going crazy

But I don't care what they say
I'm in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don't know the truth
My heart's crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

Trying hard not to hear
But they talk so loud
Their piercing sounds fill my ears
Try to fill me with doubt
Yet I know that the goal
Is to keep me from falling

But nothing's greater
Than the rush that comes with your embrace
And in this world of loneliness
I see your face
Yet everyone around me
Thinks that I'm going crazy, maybe, maybe

But I don't care what they say
I'm in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don't know the truth
My heart's crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

And it's draining all of me
Oh they find it hard to believe
I'll be wearing these scars
For everyone to see

I don't care what they say
I'm in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don't know the truth
My heart's crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love

Yeah i know, a lot of people think their music sucks but i still like and listen to the Pet Shop Boys now and then.


Miracles

Clouds drift away
when they see you
Rain wouldn't dare
to fall near you here
Miracles happen
when you're around
Somehow the grass is much greener
Rivers flow faster and cleaner
Being with you
no matter where
sunlight breaks through
and suddenly there's

A bluer sky
whenever you're around
You always bring
a bluer sky
a brighter day

Thunder is silent before you
Roses bloom more to adore you too
Miracles happen
when you're around
The sunset is deeper and longer
The scent of the jasmine is stronger
Stray dogs don't bite
Birds start to sing
Lightening daren't strike
You suddenly bring

A bluer sky
whenever you're around
You always bring
a bluer sky
a brighter day
Birds fly
even higher in the sky
Sun shines
It's a new day


And i like the video along to it, makes me think that water is a kind of living being. : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTaRwOzc3II

For old times; sake, I downloaded their 'discography' compilation album just recently. It's still great stuff, for sure.
One of my celebrity moments came in a tiny old London pub sometime in the mid nineties... I was standing at the bar drinking some very strong, dark ale, when I realised the guy standing next to me, enthusing over the (admittedly quality, hardwood) floorboards was Neil Tennant. Chris was sitting in the corner (Chris trained as an architect). So I plucked up some courage and drew his attention to the rather marvellous resin bar counter, explaining that it must have been very difficult to pour without trapping air bubbles at the point the resin met the chunks of gravel within. 'Oh yes, yes...' he said, stroking his finger across its surface. Chris said nothing.
I turned back to my drink and silently sipped it for about twenty minutes whilst everyone else in the bar whispered and pointed. No one else dared approach either of them. I guess they were at the height of their fame around then.

I agree with rouss, the "discography" compilation is still quite enjoyable. Still lying around somewhere at home... The songs they made afterwards, well, no comment...

This is to everybody in love
(Originally by Bob Dylan)

When the rain is blowin' in your face
And the whole world is on your case
I could offer you a warm embrace
To make you feel my love.

When the evening shadows and the stars appear
And there is no one there to dry your tears
I could hold you for a million years
To make you feel my love.

I know you haven't made your mind up yet
But I would never do you wrong
I've known it from the moment that we met
No doubt in my mind where you belong.

I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawlin' down the avenue
No, there's nothin' that I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love.

Though storms are raging on the rollin' sea
And on the highway of regrets
Though winds of change are throwing wild and free
You ain't seen nothin' like me yet.

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends of the Earth for you
To make you feel my love.

(you can also find this song on Bryan Ferrys "Dylanesque"-Album. I love this song)

And this is a lyric which is (unfortunately) still up to date.


Jacques Brel,
Le diable (Ça va)

Un jour,
Un jour le diable vint sur Terre
Un jour le diable vint sur Terre
Pour surveiller ses intérêts
Il a tout vu le diable, il a tout entendu
Et après avoir tout vu
Et après avoir tout entendu
Il est retourné chez lui, là-bas.
Et là-bas, on avait fait un grand banquet
A la fin du banquet, il s'est levé le diable
Il a prononcé un discours :

Ça va
Il y a toujours un peu partout
Des feux illuminant la Terre
Ça va
Les hommes s'amusent comme des fous
Au dangereux jeu de la guerre
Ça va
Les trains déraillent avec fracas
Parce que des gars pleins d'idéal
Mettent des bombes sur les voies
Ça fait des morts originales
Ça fait des morts sans confession
Des confessions sans rémission
Ça va

Rien ne se vend mais tout s'achète
L'honneur et même la sainteté
Ça va
Les États se muent en cachette
En anonymes sociétés
Ça va
Les grands s'arrachent les dollars
Venus du pays des enfants
L'Europe répète l'Avare
Dans un décor de mil neuf cent
Ça fait des morts d'inanition
Et l'inanition des nations
Ça va

Les hommes, ils en ont tant vu
Que leurs yeux sont devenus gris
Ça va
Et l'on ne chante même plus
Dans toutes les rues de Paris
Ça va
On traite les braves de fous
Et les poètes de nigauds
Mais dans les journaux de partout
Tous les salauds ont leur photo
Ça fait mal aux honnêtes gens
Et rire les malhonnêtes gens
Ça va, ça va, ça va, ça va !

I llllove his lyrics ...

Into Pieces - Anik Kadinski (one of my fave songs by her)

Thrown Into This World With Everything I Need
I Could Be Like A Flower In The Field You Said
Yet I Know I'd Better Become Better
If I Really Want A Piece Of The Cake

Went Out To The Sea And Started Fishing Right Away
Soon After I Was Washed Ashore, Lost All My Prey
Seems As I Have Seen That Cold Harbour Before
Where I've Started From So Many Times

Chorus
I've Burned Myself All Out
So I Will Keep Still
Until The Pain Subsides
I'm Waiting To Go On
But I Guess I Lost My Boat
Set The Sails Too Tight Again
I'm Swimming In A Whirl That's Tearing Me To Pieces, Into Pieces

Maybe There's No Such Thing As The Right Way
Still I Force Myself To Choose The Only One For Me
Always Ends Up In An Out-Of-Order Headache
Guess I'll Let Myself Hang Loose Till Daybreak

Chorus

Just For One Time To Be Free
Nothing's In My Way
Open Roads And Skies Before Me
No More Clinging To Anything
Just Being ...
In My Dream, But ...

Chorus

Crowd Surf Off A Cliff - Emily Haines

Cursed with a love that you can't express
It's not for a fuck, or a kiss
Rather give the world away than wake up lonely
Everywhere in every way I see you with me

Crowd surf off a cliff
Land out on the ice
Crowd surf off to sea
float towards the beach

If you find me, hide me, I don't know where I've been

Are we breathing, are we breathing, are we wasting our breath?
It won't be enough to be rich
All the babies tucked away in their beds
We're out here screaming,
"The life that you thought through is gone!"
Can't wind down, the ending outlasting the move
I wake up lonely

Crowd surf off a cliff
Land out on the ice
Crowd surf off to sea
float towards the beach

If you find me, hide me, I don't know where I've been
When you phone me tell me everything I did
If I'm sorry you lost me you'd better make it quick
Cause this call costs a fortune and it's late where you live
It's late where you live

Rather give the world away than wake up lonely
Everywhere and every way I see you with me
All the babies tucked away in their beds
We're out here screaming,
"The life that you thought through is gone"
Can't want out, the ending outlasting the move
I wake up lonely

I wake up lonely

Laura Marling - My Manic & I

He wants to die in a lake in Geneva
The mountains can cover the shape of his nose
He wants to die where nobody can see him
But the beauty of his death will carry on so
I don’t believe him

He greets me with kisses when good days deceive him
And sometimes we're scorned and sometimes I believe him
And sometimes I’m convinced that my friends think I’m crazy
Get scared and call him, but he’s usually hazy
At 1 in the morning, the day is not ended
By 2 he is scared that sleep is no friend
By 4 he will drink but he cannot feel it
Sleep will not come because sleep does not will it
And I don’t believe him
Morning is mocking me

I wander the streets, avoiding them eats
Till ring on my finger slips to the ground
A gift to the gutter, a gift to the city
The veins of which have broken me down
And I don’t believe him
Morning is mocking me

The gods that he believes never fail to amaze me
He believes in the love in his god of all things
But I find him wrapped up in all manner of sins
The drugs that deceive him and the girls that believe him
I can’t control you, I don’t know you well
These are the reasons I think that you’re ill
I can’t control you, I don’t know you well
These are the reasons I think that you’re ill

And since last that we parted
Since last that i saw him down by a river
Silent and hardened
Morning was mocking us, blood hit the sky
I was just happy, my manic and I
He couldn’t see me; the sun was in his eyes
And birds were singing to calm us down
And birds were singing to calm us down

And I’m sorry young man, I cannot be your friend.
I don’t believe in a fairytale end
I don’t keep my head up all of the time
I find it dull when my heart meets my mind
And I hardly know you, I think I can tell
These are the reasons I think that we're ill
I hardly know you, I think I can tell
These are the reasons I think that I'm ill
And the gods that he believes never fail to disappoint me
My happy man my manic and I have no plans to move on
And the birds are singing to calm us down
And the birds are singing to calm us down

From one of my favourite artists, Maria Taylor:

Leap Year:

Save my money
For that plane ride
Horn of plenty
Heavy sunlight
Autumn's bounty
Bread and red wine
In a hurry
But there's so much time
I will wait for you
Growing love but like water
Time will always slip through
I will wait for you
But please come soon

The wind sounds angry
But my coat's kind
Wrapped in blankets
In the daylight
Winters longing
Summer close behind
In a hurry
But there's so much time

I will wait for you
Growing love but like water
Time will always slip through
I will wait for you

Is it in a plan
Written in your hand
Believe or understand
Something other than

Fear is blinding lights
Squeeze my eyes so tight
Could you make a flower grow
Would you let me know

I will wait for you
Growing love but like water
Time will always slip through
I will wait for you
But please come soon

Sometimes I catch a few lyrics to a song, or I see the words to a song and get something out of them by reading but, generally when I'm listening, it's the music I'm listening to. An exception to this was on hearing Vanessa Paradis' cover version of this song... perhaps it's her parallel career as an actress which invested her intonation so convincingly. I dunno. But it means something to me:

I could just reach out
And touch your hair
But I wouldn’t dare
Lean and whisper that I care
Oh but I wouldn’t dare
For that would only break the spell
That I have learned to love so well
And it wouldn’t be fair
So I wouldn’t dare

Oh I could see us as a pair
But I wouldn’t dare
We could have a sweet affair
But I wouldn’t dare
Now I’ll be happy just to dance
With this illusion of romance
That I never will share
Cause I wouldn’t dare

In these circumstances a heart that takes a chance
Has only itself to blame
And it would be tragic if I lost this magic
And you didn’t feel the same

Oh I could sit and I could stare
But I wouldn’t dare
Imagining the when and where
But I wouldn’t dare

For if you were to turn away
Because of things that I might say
That I just couldn’t bear
So I wouldn’t dare
And it wouldn’t be fair
So I wouldn’t dare


... finally a song I could sing myself and still feel honest.

Damien Saez - J'veux qu'on baise sur ma tombe

A la lumière obscure
Je te croise enfin
Mon dieu que tu es belle
Toi la seule toi l'ultime
Entre les hommes égalité
S'il te plait prends ma main
Ne te fais plus attendre
Il est temps de s'étreindre
De s'éteindre
Une dernière cigarette

Les guerriers de la route avaient pourtant prédit
La mort ou la naissance
Ca dépend du cœur
Au soleil qui s'incline
Allez finissons en
Et laissons s'accomplir le firmament
Plongé dans l'infini dans le gouffre sacré
De Katagena
Me noyer à jamais
Et puis quitter ce monde sans pudeur ni morale

Jveux qu'on baise sur ma tombe
Jveux qu'on baise sur ma tombe

Que la grâce s'accomplisse
Immortelle jouissance
Que les femme s'unisse dans un parfait accord
Rien que pour un instant
L'éphémère devienne
Eternité

J'aurais aimé t'aimer
Comme on aime le soleil
Te dire que le monde est beau
Que c'est beau d'aimer
J'aurais aimer t'écrire
Le plus beau des poèmes
Et construire un empire
Juste pour ton sourire
Devenir le soleil
Pour sécher tes sanglots
Et faire battre le ciel
Pour un futur plus beau
Mais c'est plus fort que moi
Tu vois je n'y peux rien
Ce monde n'est pas pour moi
Ce monde n'est pas le mien

Au revoir mes amis
Au revoir mes frères
Au revoir mon pays
A nous deux la lumière
Au revoir Franckie
Au revoir les printemps
Au revoir pauvre monde
A nous deux satan
Au revoir mes amis
Au revoir mes frères
Au revoir mon pays
A nous deux la lumière

All we have is now - The Flaming Lips

As logic stands you couldn't meet a man
Who's from the future
But logic broke as he appeared he spoke
About the Future
"We're not gonna make it" He explained how
the end will come - you and me were never meant
to be part of the future -
All we have is now -
All we've ever had was now
All we have is now
All we'll ever have is now

I noticed that he had a watch and hat
That looked familiar
He was me - from a dimension torn free
Of the future
"We're not gonna make it" He explained how
the end will come - You and me were never meant
to be part of the future -
All we have is now -
All we've ever had was now
All we have is now
All we'll ever have is now -

All we have is now -

The Big Pink / Velvet

I’ve seen it in my hands
Burn in my heart
I’ve seen it in my past
Back in my home
But does it make sense to see her again
I don’t know

I’ve felt it for some time, now
And not at all
Poison in my head
God love hurts
I’m not looking for love but its hard to resist
I don’t recall being this dead

She’s the only one
Lost the best I had
I found her in a dream
Looking for me
This heart’s on fire
I’ll bring myself
Up to fall
And down again

These arms of mine
Don’t mind who they hold
So should I maybe just leave love alone
You call out my name for the love you need
But you won’t find it in me

These arms of mine
Don’t mind who they hold
You were made for me now I’ll leave love alone
You call out my name for the love you need
But you won’t find it in me

I’ve seen it in my hands
And burn in my heart
I found her in a dream
Looking for me
But does it make sense to see her again
I don’t know

I can see the end of what I begun
A tale of love
Come and gone
Now my love
No promises
I won’t go
Falling in love.

and when we get home, i know we won't be home at all
this place we live, it is not where we belong
and i miss who we were in the town that we could call our own
going back to get away after everything has changed

cause you remind me of a time when we were so alive
(everything has changed)
do you remember that?

so we stand here now and no one knows us at all
i won't get used to this
i won't get used to being gone
and going back won't feel the same if we aren't staying
going back to get away after everything has changed

cause you remind me of a time when we were so alive
(everything has changed)
do you remember that?

AN HORSE / Little Little Little

Oh my god you’re a handful
And oh my god these hands are so small
Oh my god I’m a handful
And oh my god your hands got so full of me
Way too quickly

I thought I needed a suitcase
So I could pack this all away
I thought I needed a cold place
So when it snows
I could cuddle up to someone I don’t know

Oh my god you’re a handful
And oh my god these hands are so small
Oh my god I’m a handful
And oh my god your hands got so full of me
Way too quickly

I thought I needed a brave face
For one whole year I burned so brightly
I thought I needed a new place
But I looked around
And this was the town that I found
That I found

Believe me believe me when I say
I don’t want what I had yesterday
Believe me believe me when I say
I gave everything away
Believe me believe me when I say
I feel awake for a month and one day
Believe me believe me when I say
I don’t want what I had yesterday

Oh my god you’re a handful
And oh my god these hands are so small
Oh my god I’m a handful
And oh my god your hands got so full of me
Way too quickly
