Ihan ehdoton iltabiisi!

Suzanne Vega Night Vision

By day give thanks
By night beware
Half the world in sweetness
The other in fear

When the darkness takes you
With her hand across your face
Don't give in too quickly
Find the thing she's erased

Find the line, find the shape
Through the grain
Find the outline, things will
Tell you their name

The table. the guitar
The empty glass

All will blend together when
Daylight has passed

Find the line, find the shape
Through the grain
Find the outline, things will
Tell you their name

Now I watch you falling into sleep
Watch your fist curl against the sheet
Watch your lips fall open and your eyes dim
In blind faith

I would shelter you
Keep you in light
But I can only teach you
Night vision

Huub van der Lubbe - Tegen de tijd

Tegen de Tijd
Tegen de tijd dan blijkt misschien
Wat van nabij niet was te zien
Wat in het duister huist van voordien
Komt aan het licht misschien tegen de tijd
Tegen de tijd als tijd verstrijkt,
en de schaduw van 't verleden wijkt
Als de onderste steen niet de onderste blijkt,
misschien dat tegen die tijd
Wie weet dat dan uitkomt,
dat dingen nooit gaan,
als ooit werd gezegd dat ze gingen
Dat het zwijgen dicht bij de leugen ligt,
en de waarheid niet ver van de waan
Tegen de tijd als tijd het leert,
dat geen macht of kracht de waarheid weert,
en geen boom is zo oud dat geen tak een keer splijt,
zal blijken
tegen de tijd


geez it's SO pretty

Pearl Jam - Corduroy

the waiting drove me mad...you're finally here and i'm a mess
i take your entrance back...can't let you roam inside my head
i don't want to take what you can give...
i would rather starve than eat your bread...
i would rather run but i can't walk...
guess i'll lie alone just like before...
i'll take the varmint's path...oh, and i must refuse your test
a-push me and i will resist...this behavior's not unique
i don't want to hear from those who know...
they can buy, but can't put on my clothes...
i don't want to limp for them to walk...
never would have known of me before...
i don't want to be held in your debt...
i'll pay it off in blood, let i be wed...
i'm already cut up and half dead...
i'll end up alone like i began...
everything has chains...absolutely nothing's changed
"take my hand, not my picture," spilled my teacher (spilled my
tincture)
i don't want to take what you can give...
i would rather starve than eat your breast...
all the things that others want for me...
can't buy what i want because it's free...
can't buy what i want because it's free...
can't be what you want because i'm...
why ain't it sposed to be just fun
oh, to live and die, let it be done
i figure i'll be damned, all alone like i began...
it's your move now...
i thought you were a friend, but i guess i, i guess i hate you.

Bertie by Kate Bush

Here comes the sunshine
Here comes the son of mine
Here comes the everything
Here's a song and a song for him

Sweet kisses
Three wishes
Lovely Bertie

The most wilful
The most beautiful
The most truly fantastic smile
I've ever seen

Sweet kisses
Three wishes
Lovely Bertie

You bring me so much joy
And then you bring me
More joy

Just another one. Gavin Rossdale wrote it for a friend who didn't dare for along time to tell him about his AIDS illness.



Bush:
Letting The Cables Sleep


You in the dark
You in the pain
You on the run
Living a hell
Living your ghost
Living your end
Never seem to get in the place that I belong
Don't wanna lose the time
Lose the time to come

Whatever you say it's alright
Whatever you do it's all good
Whatever you say it's alright
Silence is not the way
We need to talk about it
If heaven is on the way
If heaven is on the way

You in the sea
On a decline
Breaking the waves
Watching the lights go down
Letting the cables sleep

Whatever you say it's alright
Whatever you do it's all good
Whatever you say it's alright
Silence is not the way
We need to talk about it
If heaven is on the way
We'll wrap the world around it
If heaven is on the way
If heaven is on the way


I'm a stranger in this town
I'm a stranger in this town

If heaven is on the way
If heaven is on the way
I'm a stranger in this town
I'm a stranger in this town

You don't know why I'm crazy
I don't know why you're blue
You fucked with my head
You fucked with the dead
Now I'm gonna fuck with you
I don't know why you're lazy
I'm so in love with you
What's God gonna see
Who's God gonna know
When's God gonna help us through
I can't deny I can't explain I can't reply
I can't refrain
I want his hands I want his chest I want his feet
I want his sex
I am the child I am the whore I am the wild woman at your door
I need to touch I need to talk I need to love I need to give you you up

What am I fighting for
If I win I lose my life
I need you more and more to
break my will tonight

Only love can set us free
Only love can bear the truth
Only love can bring us peace
Only love can save me and you

Oh Daddy what I've been thinking
Only heaven knows
What's Ma gonna see who's Ma gonna blame
When's Mama gonna carry you home

I have the urge I have the mind
I have the touch I drank the wine
I want the loss I want the pain I want to start my life again
I can't define I can't forget I can't restrain the feeling of regret
I know the dead I'm not alone I made my bed
I want to let you you go

What am I frightened for
If I speak I lost my mind
You've broken down the door and there is no place to hide

Only love can set us free
Only love can bear the truth
Only love can bring us peace
Only love can save me and you
Only love can purify
Only love can conquer fear
Only love can testify
Only love can make a miracle of life.

calm

ballads laugh at everyone
worse than silence is their song
and you are too far away to love.

shortened by the blasphemy
when the sun would warm the sea.
the canary islands are chasing me
we are powerful despite our injuries.

we've got to swim out away from the sinking
it's pulling everybody down and everybody
and it's a sind to know.
that we are powerful

blessigns slways beg for calm
in spite of silvery arms
we aren't sure but we always want
we are powerful despite our injuries.

what make the native speakers out of it?

Enya - Only time

Who can say where the road goes,
Where the day flows?
Only time...

And who can say if your love grows,
As your heart chose?
Only time...

(chants)

Who can say why your heart sighs,
As your love flies?
Only time...

And who can say why your heart cries,
When your love dies?
Only time...

(chants)

Who can say when the roads meet,
That love might be,
In your heart.

And who can say when the day sleeps,
The moon still keeps on moving
If the night keeps all your heart?
Night keeps all your heart...

(extended chants)

Who can say if your love grows,
As your heart chose?
Only time...

And who can say where the road goes,
Where the day flows?
Only time...

Who knows?
Only time...

Who knows?
Only time...

One of my favorite songs: "Bed of roses", Bon Jovi.


(Lyrics: Jon Bon Jovi)


Sitting here wasted and wounded
at this old piano
Trying hard to capture
the moment this morning I don't know
'Cause a bottle of vodka
is still lodged in my head
And some blonde gave me nightmares
I think she's still in my bed
As I dream about movies
they won't make of me when I'm dead

With an ironclad fist I wake up and
French kiss the morning
While some marching band keeps
its own beat in my head
While we're talking
About all of the things that I long to believe
About love and the truth and
what you mean to me
And the truth is baby you're all that I need

I want to lay you down in a bed of roses
For tonight I sleep on a bed on nails
I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on bed of roses

Well I'm so far away
That each step that I take is on my way home
A king's ransom in dimes I've given each night
Just to see through this payphone
Still I run out of time
Or it's hard to get through
Till the bird on the wire flies me back to you
I'll just close my eyes and whisper,
baby blind love is true

I want to lay you down in a bed of roses
For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails
I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on bed of roses

The hotel bar hangover whiskey's gone dry
The barkeeper's wig's crooked
And she's giving me the eye
I might have said yeah
But I laughed so hard I think I died

When you close your eyes
Know I'll be thinking about you
While my mistress she calls me
To stand in her spotlight again
Tonight I won't be alone
But you know that don't
Mean I'm not lonely I've got nothing to prove
For it's you that I'd die to defend

I want to lay you down in a bed of roses
For tonight I sleep on a bed of nails
I want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
And lay you down on bed of roses

Death Cab For Cutie

"Someday You Will Be Loved"

I once knew a girl
In the years of my youth
With eyes like the summer
All beauty and truth
In the morning I fled
Left a note and it read
Someday you will be loved.

I cannot pretend that I felt any regret
Cause each broken heart will eventually mend
As the blood runs red down the needle and thread
Someday you will be loved

You'll be loved you'll be loved
Like you never have known
The memories of me
Will seem more like bad dreams
Just a series of blurs
Like I never occurred
Someday you will be loved

You may feel alone when you're falling asleep
And everytime tears float down your cheeks
But I know your heart belongs to someone you've yet to meet
Someday you will be loved

You'll be loved you'll be loved
Like you never have known
The memories of me
Will seem more like bad dreams
Just a series of blurs
Like I never occurred
Someday you will be loved

You'll be loved you'll be loved
Like you never have known
The memories of me
Will seem more like bad dreams
Just a series of blurs
Like I never occurred
Someday you will be loved
Someday you will be loved

White Feathers - The Plague Monkeys

This return trip is just a lie
Life is a lark and then you...
With object lessons
With static reason

Sometimes it's what it is
Sometimes I'm what I see
Sometimes it hardly means enough
To be surrendering

And those religious thieves
They stole the words from me
My purpose, meaning
My courage, feeling

Sometimes it's what it is
Sometimes I'm what I need
Sometimes it almost seems enough
To be surrendering, to be surrendering

The last days are calling
The lost years are calling
This soul surrendering

A nice song by Swans :

Swans - In The Eyes Of Nature

No We Have Never Been Here
And We'll Never Be Gone
I Saw Your Voice Rise Up
And Cut Into The Heart Of The Sun
I Kissed The Lips Of A Girl
She Took Her First Breath When The World Was Young
I Felt The Cold Of The Air As It Burned By Empty Lungs
And We Have Never Been Born
And We Will Be Consumed
And Unreality Is Buried Beneath The Truth
And Though We've Never Been Here
We Will Never Be Contained
And Reality Is Naked Beneath The Moon

So We'll Go Down To The Ocean
And Wash Our Memory Clean
We'll See The World For The First Time
Through An Unburied Eye
And Though The World Will Stay The Same
And We're Certain To Die
We'll Raise Our Hands Up To Heaven
And Sacrifice Our Limitations
And The Pain And Frustration
Are Equal To The Bliss Of Release
And In The Eyes Of Nature
We'll Live For An Eternity
And In The Eyes Of Nature
We Could Never Have Been Born
And The Light That Surrounds Us
Will Take Us Into It's Arms
And When We Die We'll Disappear
Into The Eyes Of Nature
And We're Here Just For A Little While
And Then Our Body Disappears

Into The Eyes Of Nature
Into The Arms Of God
Into The Mouth Of Indifference
Into The Eyes Of Nature
And We Are Nothing But Experience
In The Eyes Of Nature
And We Will Live Forever
In The Eyes Of Nature

The Counting Crows' "All My Friends"

thought i might get a rocket ride
when i was a child but it was a lie
that i told myself when i needed something good
at 17 had a better dream
now i'm 33 and it isn't me
but i'd think of something better if i could
all my friends and lovers leave me behind
i'm still looking for a girl
one way or another
i'm just hoping to find a way
to put my feet out in the world
caught some grief from a falling leaf
as she tumbled down to the dirty ground
said i shoulda put her back there if i could
but everyone needs a better day
and i'm trying to find me a better way
to get from the things i do to the things i should
all my friends and lovers leave me alone
to try and have a little fun
one way or another
i'm just wish i had known
to go out walking in the sun
find out if you were the one
do you wanna come a little closer?
do you wanna dance with me?
do you wanna hum a little harder now?
can you see her waiting there?
can you see her? cause i'm almost there
can you see her waiting there for someone like me?
all you want is a beauty queen
not a superstar
but everybody's dream machine
all you want is a place to lay your head
you go to sleep dreaming how you would
be a different kind if you thought you could
but you come awake the way you are instead
all my friends and lovers shine like the sun
i just turn and walk away
one way or another
i'm not coming undone
i'm just waiting for the day

I always liked these lyrics very much:

Wir Sind Helden - Nur Ein Wort

Ich sehe, dass du denkst
Ich denke dass du fühlst
Ich fühle dass du willst
aber ich hör dich nicht ich

hab mir ein Wörterbuch geliehen
dir A bis Z ins Ohr geschrieen
Ich stapel tausend wirre Worte auf
die dich am Ärmel ziehen

Und wo du hingehen willst
Ich häng an deinen Beinen
Wenn du schon auf den Mund fallen musst
Warum dann nicht auf meinen

Oh bitte gib mir nur ein Wort
Bitte gib mir nur ein Oh
Bitte gib mir nur ein
Bitte bitte gib mir nur ein Wort

Es ist verrückt wie schön du schweigst
Wie du dein hübsches Köpfchen neigst
Und so der ganzen lauten Welt und mir
die kalte Schulter zeigst

Dein Schweigen ist dein Zelt
Du stellst es mitten in die Welt

Spannst die Schnüre und staunst stumm wenn
Nachts ein Mädchen drüber fällt

Zu deinen Füssen red ich mich
um Kopf und Kragen
Ich will in deine tiefen Wasser
Große Wellen schlagen

Oh bitte gib mir nur ein Wort

In meinem Blut werfen
die Endorphine Blasen
Wenn hinter deinen stillen
Hasenaugen die Gedanken rasen

I'm not the man - 10,000 Maniacs
(and most any Natalie Merchant lyric for that matter)

It crawls on his back, won't ever let him be.
Stares at the walls until the cinder blocks can breathe.
His eyes have gone away, escaping over time.
He rules a crowded nation inside his mind.

He knows that night like his hand.
He knows every move he made.
Late shift, the bell that rang, a time card won't fade.
10:05 his truck pulled home.
10:05 he climbed his stair, about the time he was accused of being there.

But I'm not the man.
He goes free as I wait on the row for the man
to test the rope he'll slip around my throat... and silence me.

On the day he was tried no witness testified.
Nothing but evidence, not hard to falsify.
His own confession was a prosecutor's prize,
made up of fear, of rage and of outright lies.

But I'm not the man.
He goes free as the candle vigil glows, as they burn my clothes.
As the crowd cries, "Hang him slow!" and I feel my blood go cold, he goes free.

Call out the KKK, they're wild after me.
And with that frenzied look of half-demented zeal,
they'd love to serve me up my final meal.

Who'll read my final rite and hear my last appeal?
Who struck this devil's deal

Also the video is great. I don't love the lyrics because of the content. I haven't thought much about teh content yet. It's just this fine play with words. They really seem to love the German language, and simply "play" with it. I think that's great!

From Kevin Martin's new CD (see the Candlebox thread):


Kevin Martin and the Hiwatts -
If We Could


If I could decide on what i've decided
If I could confide in whom i've confided
And if I believed in all I believe in
We deny it all
No trust inside

If we could see ourselves
Would we get it right?
If we don't feel at all
How can we feel alive?

If I could fight for all that i'm fighting
And if im alive then tell me what am I living
And if i'm to be oh tell me what is my being
We deny it all
There's no trust inside

If we could see ourselves
Would we get it right?
If we don't feel at all
How can we feel alive?

How can we feel alive?

If we never fall
And if we only breathe
And if we want at all
Who would we want to be yeah

If we could see ourselves
Would we get it right
If we don't feel at all
How can we feel alive
If we could see ourselves
Would we get it right
If we don't feel at all
How can we feel alive

Freude schöner Götterfunken,
Tochter aus Elysium,
Wir betreten Feuertrunken,
Himmlische, dein Heiligtum!
Deine Zauber binden wieder,
Was die Mode streng geteilt.
Alle Menschen werden Brüder,
Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.


(Schiller, to the melody of Beethoven)

Almost. As far as I know, the official European (and EU) anthem has no lyrics, it's just the melody. The reason is the many different languages within Europe.

I like the Eurovision anthem very much, too. Is there still this anthem and the Eurovision logo before certain European tv broadcasts? I remember I saw and heard it very often as a kid.

Well, I'm no specialist for TV, but as far as I know, it still exists, e.g. before "Wetten dass...?"

I believe his name is Adam Duritz or something like that. I really like August And Everything After, but Recovering the Satellites has some good songs too. Haven't listened to any of their later stuff.

DIE BASTARDE, DIE DICH JETZT NACH HAUSE BRINGEN

schlaf ein, es ist vorbei.
es ist nur der wind,
der dich wachen lässt
und nicht die konsequenzen,
die du alleine ziehst

und die träume die du hast
in diesen schmutzigen sekunden
zwischen dem schlaf und wach.

wo wirst du heute schlafen
und worüber denkst du nach
es war wundervoll als wir uns trafen
wie lange lagst du wach?

könntest du hier verweilen
kannst du bleiben wie du bist
das war dein leben an das ich dachte
das, wie du, süchtig nach mir ist.

wie wir schweigend durch die strassen gehen
muss sich wundervoll anhören
wie dann die worte verstummen
sich ohne zärtlichkeit berühren.



DU BIST DEN GANZEN WEG GERANNT
vielen dank für die weissen lilien und das gute buch
das ich nicht wage zu lesen du weißt doch, dass ich es versuche.

das ist kein rätsel.
das ist was wir kennen.
sein versagen nicht länger überzeugung zu nennen.

und die zeit versucht zu trösten
und die liebe versucht zu bewahren,
dass man weiß,
dass man drüber hinweg kommt,
wie man früher einmal war.

schau ein einziges mal nach oben
schau ein einziges mal nach vorn.
du wirst dinge sehen von denen du dachtest,
sie seien noch nicht geboren.
du wirst tage verbringen
an den zähnen nicht knirschen,
deine scheine ausreichen,
deine schulden zu begleichen
deine augen nicht feucht sind,
du bekommst was du bräuchtest
es wird passiereen.
ich hoffe du weißt es...

hinter all diesen fenstern sitzen menschen.
du hast es immer geahnt,
dass sie es wert sind zu bleiben
du bist den ganzen weg gerannt.

Sounds quite depressing.... nice.

Which band are these songs from ?


Something else : a great sentence Jaz Coleman told us yesterday at the concert in Antwerp :'You'll never know the truth, because if you learn the truth, you go crazy'.

INSECURITATE
der tag an dem ich in die stadt kam
und du warst nicht an meiner seite
"geb‘ dir doch ein bißchen mühe"
dann wird’s gehn , du wirst sehen!"
sagtest du zu mir und ich hoffe,
du wußtest nicht was du da sagtest,
denn so komisch kann doch wirklich niemand sein.

du siehst gut aus,
man sieht’s dir an
du hast es weit gebracht!

seit 5 Jahren halt ich mein herz in kochendes wasser,
doch es scheint nichts zu nützen,
denn so abgebrüht bin ich noch lange nicht.
weichgekocht!

wie schön wäre es zu warten,
dass irgendwann mal was passiert.
am deich zu liegen und zu sehen,
wie die sonne die nordsee berührt.
die arme zu öffnen
und alles zu umarmen
was einem gefallt ich fühle mich wie in alter hund
ich habe lange nicht gebellt!

die insecuritate
hat meinen zuversichtlichen bruder erschossen
wohin willst du heute noch gehen?
was willst du heute noch verstehen?

/

this is huge. imho.

i don't love the song but i love the lyric from Blah Blah by Kate Miller-Heidke (my new obsession i think)

It always happens in coffee shops • And I'm always hungover when
someone wants to talk • And don't get me wrong, I like talking when
it's a healthy back-and-forth exchange • But some people always wanna
lecture me and try to make me change • He says 'You are a mystery,
aren't you' • And considering he hasn't shut up long enough for me to
string two words together • Yes that's me, Miss Mystery • And he's
quiet for a time • And I think that might be a good sign • Til there's
a glint in his eye and I realise he's just making more sentences in
his mind • And here it comes, and there's nothing I can do • I take a
sip, I take a breath • He licks his lips and he's opening his mouth,
and it's:

Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah • Blah blah blah blah blah blah
blah blah blah • Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah • blah blah dog
diggity blah

Like a steamtrain • Like an onslaught • Like a machine gun loaded with
your opinions but it's incoherent ammunition and your words aren't
very wounding weapons when they're inflicted on me • And I know you
mean well • With your deep wells of advice • And your buckets of
swelled self-righteousness • Hell, you're just trying to be nice • And
you're nice, but you state your views like they are facts of life •
And I hate that, and I tell you • And I brace myself for the reply,
it's gonna be: (blah blah blah, etc)

He says, 'You never were much of a talker' • Well this isn't talking •
This is being cornered • I'm being cornered by you • And I can't get
away • From this table for two • in the corner of this bright corner
café • And didn't we have this same conversation last week? • It's not
that I don't like you - I just wish you wouldn't speak: (blah blah
blah etc)

I see he's made a list • Of pressing topics of discussion • Competing
with the clanking coffee cup percussion • And I guess we'll start with
number one • On the first A4 page • Past the setting of the sun • And
the pouring of the lattes • And here it comes, it's coming and there's
nothing anyone can do • I take a sip • I grip the chair • He opens his
big, wet slippery mouth: (blah blah blah etc)

To celebrate Pearl Jam's new album, here some great lyrics from an older one:


Pearl Jam - Wishlist

I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off
I wish I was a sacrifice but somehow still lived on
I wish I was a sentimental ornament you hung on
The christmas tree, I wish I was the star that went on top
I wish I was the evidence, I wish I was the grounds
For 50 million hands upraised and open toward the sky

I wish I was a sailor with someone who waited for me
I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me
I wish I was a messenger and all the news was good
I wish I was the full moon shining off a camaro’s hood

I wish I was an alien at home behind the sun
I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on
I wish I was the pedal brake that you depended on
I wish I was the verb ’to trust’ and never let you down

I wish I was a radio song, the one that you turned up
I wish...
I wish...

BJ Baartmans - Oester

Kan ik jou laten zien hoeveel liefde ik voel
als het mij als een verslaafde heeft verdoofd
die niet weet wat het was, waar het ooit mee begon
maar het neemt hoe het gaat en hoe het komt
als ik in wordt genomen door de melancholie
van de wijs die gevormd wordt in mijn hoofd
lijk ik verder dan ooit, bijna los, bijna weg
net of dat ik hier nooit echt was

Wat ik je zeggen wou
Ik hou meer nog van jou
dan ik van mijn hele leven van het leven zelf hou

Dan ben ik even stil als een oester in de zee
hoog boven mij de golven van het hart
dat je alles wilde geven maar nu even is geklopt
als het kan zet je dan alles stop

wat ik je zeggen wou.....
Ik hou meer nog van jou
dan ik van mijn hele leven van het leven zelf hou

ver van de wijs blijft het bij mij
dan ben ik even stil als een oester in de zee....
