Anna Ternheim - A friend at last

After years of having you as a weight on my heart
we've had our last round
Your words are weightless
they once weighed gold
and had me spellbound

You belong to the past
I'm not crying over you
you're just a friend at last

My life is changing
but you will play no part
You want me your way
become the slow-moving girl who hangs around
loved ones to become

After years of having you as a weight on my heart
the stone turned to air at last
You belong to the past
I'm not crying over you
you're just a friend at last

You're just a friend
la la la....

After years of having you as a weight on my heart
it's obvious to me that you belong to the past
I'm not crying over you
you're just a friend at last

You're just a friend
la la la....

...in just five verses, a song that talks about

enjoying the little things
reaching freedom as first absolute thing
the frailty of life, and the thoughts that come with this
how much being able to love means in our lives
the danger of not being able to change anymore


Husker Du - Flexible Flyer

Down on my flexible flyer
To the bottom how fast I would go
Just waiting for me under the tree
And out in the snow

A cowboy, a nurse or a fireman
There's so many things that you can be
You can set bigger goals, but set your soul
Yeah, set your soul free

Times, places and situations
Lead to an early grave
When we get there we see
Just what did we save?

If your heart is a flame burning brightly
You'll have light and you'll never be cold
And soon you will know that you just grow
You're not growing old

If the wheels of your wagon are rusty
You can paint them until they are new
You can roll down a hill, but if you can't
Then I pity you

Rasputina - Hunter´s Kiss

Here’s a sad story about a deer and a man

A romantic scene from a lullaby.
In a clearing green, where his eyes met mine.
I was frozen motion. Oh! His bow was raised.
Then the fleeting notion-that my life he'd save.

But I saw it coming, flying through the air.
Feathered backside humming. Miss me, hit me where
Where it will only hurt me, not a mortal wound.
Leave me lying dirty, someone would find me soon.

I have never felt like this before.
Felt my body sinking to the grassy floor
I have never known a love like this.
Felt the flaming arrows of the Hunter's Kiss.

My life is not mine.
Like a dog or a wife.
He has taken his time.
He has taken my life.

I could see the steaming of his cloudy breath.
No, I was not dreaming.
I was next to death.
As I lay there twitching, then my legs he tied.
There was nothing missing on the day I died.

I Am Kloot - I believe

I believe
in the hallelujah chorus of the shopping malls
we say we can't, we know we shan't, well of course we shall
Cause I've seen, I believe

That we are forever something which is incomplete
we trade ourselves for nothings and words are our conceits
I have seen, now I believe

That the ceaseless, seamless strain of your heart
One day you'll cause itself to make a start
with me,we believe

I Never thought I'd string along
I never thought we'd last this long
But we've seen, so we believe
in the hallelujah chorus of the shopping malls
we say we cant, we know we shant, of course we shall
Cause we've seen, now we believe

I Never thought I'd string along
I never thought we'd last this long
I have seen, I Believe
That we are forever something which is incomplete
we trade ourselves for nothings and words are our conceits

Petula Clark - Downtown

When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go - downtown
When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know - downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown - no finer place, for sure
Downtown - everything's waiting for you

Don't hang around and let your problems surround you
There are movie shows - downtown
Maybe you know some little places to go to
Where they never close - downtown
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova
You'll be dancing with him too before the night is over
Happy again

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, where all the lights are bright
Downtown - waiting for you tonight
Downtown - you're gonna be all right now

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
Guide them along

So maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares
So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown - don't wait a minute for
Downtown - everything's waiting for you

Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown ...

Haha. She's got a nice voice and the song is quite groovy. I just said Heather was sorta boring now. I'd listen to Petula Clark over Redbird, yes definitely.

I think it's 64. I'm doing a mix cd for my mum with all those nice really cool songs. She'll love it.

The lyrics fit me today.

There is a Nova bar in my hometown.

I remember "Downtown" was in charts again in 1988 with "Downtown '88". Very nice song.

I think I have sent you the lyrics once, Julie.

Also, her remake of "Downtown" as a very huge hit in 1988. I remember it very well.

Emilie Simon - Dernier Lit

Allongée sur son lit rêveuse elle sourit
La vieille dame jadis aguicheuse perd la vie
Sûr ce soir c'est son dernier lit
Demain c'est sûr sera sans elle
La mort lui susurre d'être en dentelles
De bonne augure pour l'éternel
La mort lui murmure sa ritournelle

Elle s'allonge un verre blanc d'absinthe à la main
Son amant attend son absente pour demain
Sûr ce soir c'est son dernier lit

Demain c'est sûr sera sans elle
La mort lui murmure "vous êtes si belle"
Au nom du Père, du Saint Esprit
Ferme les paupières rejoins la nuit

Such great dark lyrics.

Morrissey - Such A Little Thing Makes Such A Big Difference

Such a little thing
Such a little thing
But the difference it made was grave
There you go
Wielding a bicycle chain
Oh, why won't you change ?
Change and be nicer ?

Such a little thing
A gentle tone of kindness
Or written words on paper
- can you write ?

How I love all of
The very simple things of life
(God's good air)
How I love all of
The very simple things of life

Such a little thing
A fumbling politeness
The difference saved me
Wielding a bicycle chain
Why won't you change ?
"I WILL NOT CHANGE
AND I WILL NOT BE NICE"
Most peole keep their brains
Between their legs
(Don't you find ?)

Leave me alone - I was only singing
Leave me alone because
I was only singing
Leave me alone - I was only singing
Leave me alone
You have just proved (again)
Most people keep their brains
between their legs

"Say a little Prayer" - Aretha Franklin

The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
I say a little prayer for you
While combing my hair, now,
And wondering what dress to wear, now,
I say a little prayer for you

Forever, forever, you'll stay in my heart
and I will love you
Forever, forever, we never will part
Oh, how I'll love you
Together, together, that's how it must be
To live without you
Would only be heartbreak for me.

I run for the bus, dear,
While riding I think of us, dear,
I say a little prayer for you.
At work I just take time
And all through my coffee break-time,
I say a little prayer for you.

Forever, forever, you'll stay in my heart
and I will love you
Forever, forever we never will part
Oh, how I'll love you
Together, together, that's how it must be
To live without you
Would only be heartbreak for me.

My darling believe me,
For me there is no one
But you.

Shawn Colvin - Never Saw Blue Like That

Today we took a walk up the street
And picked a flower and climbed the hill
Above the lake

And secret thoughts were said aloud
We watched the faces in the clouds
Until the clouds had blown away

And were we ever somewhere else
You know, it's hard to say

And I never saw blue like that before
Across the sky
Around the world
You've given me all you have and more
And no one else has ever shown me how
To see the world the way I see it now
Oh, I, I never saw blue like that

I can't believe a month ago
I was alone, I didn't know you
I hadn't seen or heard you're name
And even now, I'm so amazed
It's like a dream, It's like a rainbow, it's like the rain

And somethings are the way they are
And words just can't explain

Cause I never saw blue like that before
Across the sky
Around the world
You've given me all you have and more
And no one else has ever shown me how
To see the world the way I see it now
Oh, I, I never saw blue like that before

And it feels like now,
And it feels always,
And it feels like coming home

I never saw blue like that before
Across the sky
Around the world
You've given me all you have and more
And no one else has ever shown me how
To see the world the way I see it now
Oh, I, I never saw blue like that before

Oh, I, I never saw blue like that

a non romantic one by Neil Halstead - Hi-Lo and Inbetween

One day it just snowed I guess
and they closed the roads into your heart.
You came home like a dead star
no light left, no loving anymore.

Years ago you sent a postcard,
it’s the one that always made me laugh.
It said ”Send for reinforcements
cause theres too much here for me to love”.

What would they say,
What would they say to make you feel O.K.
What would they do,
What would they do to make you feel O.K.

Years ago I read a story
about a man who had a plan.
Tied himself on to a balloon,
yeah, cut the ties and tried to reach the moon.

Rescued by an airline pilot
15,000 feet above the world.
Dragged him down, they wished him luck
they’d hoped that he learned his lesson well.

What would they say,
What would they say to make him feel O.K.
What would they do,
What would they do to make him feel O.K.

Kathy I can still see stars
the same ones that we wished upon.
I know you know your way around,
but I can tell you’re losing ground.

I can see you on the radar,
but you know I could never bring you back.
You cut the ties, you’re floating free yeah, hi and lo and inbetween,
you cut the ties, you’re floating free yeah, hi and lo and inbetween.

Catherine - Waterfall (from "Sorry!")

And you know how it goes,
and you know how it goes,
feeling like a part of me just died,
feeling like a part of me won't cry,

waterfall, followed me,
made me clean, set me free,
waterfall, followed me, set me free,
water of the fall,

high up, and she will never change,
and I will never stay the same,
I never thought, it could ever hurt like this,
I never thought, I'd beg for her kiss,

waterfall, followed me,
made me clean, set me free,
waterfall, followed me, set me free,
water of the fall,

and you know how it goes,
and you know how it goes,
waterfall, waterfall,

I tried to stay awake,
but talking about tomorrow brings me down,
I tried to fall asleep,
but the sound of your breathing,
spins me around,
and I'm beating on the pavement,
I'm staring at my shoes,
it doesn't matter what I say,
I know I'm going to lose,
and you're calling me a liar,
but I wouldn't say that's right,
it takes me everything I've got,
to see you in the light,

morning glory, say it isn't true,
there must be something else
you and I can do,
morning glory,
I turn away,
I turn away.

Smashing Pumpkins - Disarm

Disarm you with a smile
And cut you like you want me to
Cut that little child
Inside of me and such a part of you
Ooh, the years burn

I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my choice
Whats a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love
I send this smile over to you

Disarm you with a smile
And leave you like they left me here
To wither in denial
The bitterness of one whos left alone
Ooh, the years burn
Ooh, the years burn, burn, burn

I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my voice
Whats a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love
I send this smile over to you

The killer in me is the killer in you
Send this smile over to you
The killer in me is the killer in you
Send this smile over to you
The killer in me is the killer in you
Send this smile over to you


Really love this song...SP are in studio now, to record a new album

Françoise Hardy - Message Personnel

Au bout du téléphone, il y a votre voix
Et il y a des mots que je ne dirai pas
Tous ces mots qui font peur quand ils ne font pas rire
Qui sont dans trop de films, de chansons et de livres
Je voudrais vous les dire
Et je voudrais les vivre
Je ne le ferai pas,
Je veux, je ne peux pas
Je suis seule à crever, et je sais où vous êtes
J'arrive, attendez-moi, nous allons nous connaître
Préparez votre temps, pour vous j'ai tout le mien
Je voudrais arriver, je reste, je me déteste
Je n'arriverai pas,
Je veux, je ne peux pas
Je devrais vous parler,
Je devrais arriver
Ou je devrais dormir
J'ai peur que tu sois sourd
J'ai peur que tu sois lâche
J'ai peur d'être indiscrète
Je ne peux pas vous dire que je t'aime peut-être

Mais si tu crois un jour que tu m'aimes
Ne crois pas que tes souvenirs me gênent
Et cours, cours jusqu'à perdre haleine
Viens me retrouver
Si tu crois un jour que tu m'aimes
Et si ce jour-là tu as de la peine
A trouver où tous ces chemins te mènent
Viens me retrouver
Si le dégoût de la vie vient en toi
Si la paresse de la vie
S'installe en toi
Pense à moi
Pense à moi

Mais si tu crois un jour que tu m'aimes
Ne le considère pas comme un problème
Et cours, cours jusqu'à perdre haleine
Viens me retrouver
Si tu crois un jour que tu m'aimes
N'attends pas un jour, pas une semaine
Car tu ne sais pas où la vie t'emmène
Viens me retrouver
Si le dégoût de la vie vient en toi
Si la paresse de la vie
S'installe en toi
Pense à moi
Pense à moi.

Mais si tu...

Tom Waits - Jersey Girl

Got no time for the corner boys,
down in the street makin' all that noise,
don't want no whores on eighth avenue,
cause tonight i'm gonna be with you.

'cause tonight i'm gonna take that ride,
across the river to the jersey side,
take my baby to the carnival,
and i'll take you on all the rides,
sing sha la la la la la sha la la la.

Down the shore everything's alright,
you're with your baby on a saturday night,
don't you know that all my dreams come true,
when i'm walkin' down the street with you,
sing sha la la la la la sha la la la.

You know she thrills me with all her charms,
when i'm wrapped up in my baby's arms,
my little angel gives me everything,
I know someday that she'll wear my ring.

So don't bother me cause i got no time,
I'm on my way to see that girl of mine,
nothin' else matters in this whole wide world,
when you're in love with a jersey girl,
sing sha la la la la la la.

and i call your name, i can't sleep at night,
sha la la la la la la.

A very appropriate song (seems like Robin has written it for me).

Sophia - where are you now ?
**************************

It's 5 a.m.
And I stumble down Oxford Street
The whiskey and gin
They ain't helping things
If I could speak
I'd call out your name
And if I could walk
I'd run back to you again

But where are you now
Oh where are you now

Well I've loved and left
And I've kissed and fled
I've left my heart where I should have stayed instead
And you think that I've forgotten
But you will always be near
In every face that I see
And every voice that I hear

Oh where are you now
Oh where are you now

And I heard that you found Jesus
And he helped erase your life
Well I'm glad you found the solace
That I could never provide
And what about the candles that kept the church alight
And what about the prayers you said
Would keep me warm at night

Oh where are you now
Oh where are you now

Josh Ritter - Come & Find Me

if i could trace the line that ran
between your smile and your sleight of hand
i’d guess that you put something up my sleeve
now every time i see your face, the bells ring in a far-off place
we can find each other this way, i believe.

from the hills and up behind my town
is naked from the horizon down .. the curvature is pressed against the raise
and we walked up in the fields alone
and the silence fell just like a stone that got lost in the wild blue and the gravel grey

come and find me now

though i’m here in this far off place,
my air is not this time and space
i draw you close with every breath
you don’t know it’s right until it’s wrong
You don’t know it’s yours until it’s gone
i didn’t know that it was home ‘til you up and left

come and find me now

i keep you in a flower vase
with your fatalism and crooked face
with the daisies and the violet brocades
and I keep me in a vacant lot
in the ivies, forget-me-nots
hoping you will come and untangle me one of these days

come and find me now

Song To Sing When I'm Lonely
by John Frusciante


A song to play when I'm lonely
Win and never play a game again
No one to face when I'm falling
Holding tight the dreams that never end
I'll be you
I do
I'll be you
No one's afraid to be called by another name
No one dares to be put down where they don't belong
Nowhere's anyone's reason
Everything dying and leaving
Out with these faults and you make me a baby
Faking a movement by no one seeing it
No one always finds peace flung
No one chooses to beat my pride down
Symbols pierce right through me
People fail to be drawn up
Sunlight to face accumulates
Loving pain to be clung to
By luminous bodies
Only waiting for long signs to be wrong
And true to us
Out of place in my own time
Drowning thinking that I'm dry
Holding on to facts that we'll never be proven
Faking an action 'cause no one's looking
Hello when I'm crashing
Feeling nothing when my life's flashing before my eyes
You should've threw me down
Is the content so much?

Kristin Hersh - The Letter

September 29, 1984 Dear so and so
Gather me up because I'm lost
Or I'm back where I started from
I'm crawling on the floor Rolling on the ground
I might cry I won't go home
So here's the story
I am turning up in circles
And I'm spinning on my knuckles
Don't forget that there are circles left undone
And very close to me
Forgive me Comfort me
I'm crawling on the floor Rolling on the ground
There's a blanket wrapped around my head
I'm moving in a line that's shaped like this
I'm holding in my breath I have a room
Can you tell if I am lying
Don't forget that I'm living inside
The space where walls and floor meet
There's a box inside my chest
An animal stuffed with my frustration
Can you hear me?
Don't forget that I'm alone when you're away
You make me act like other people do
Forgive me Comfort me You comfort me
You make me die I'm gonna cry I won't go home
Don't kill the god of sadness
Just don't let her get you down
See that man inside that book I read
Can't handle his own head
So what the hell am I supposed to do?
I'd like to know how he died
My hands are shaking Don't you love me anymore
I only need a person, keep my shoulders
Stand around lie down
Move your hand above the floor
Gather me up because I'm lost
Or I'm back where I started from
I'm crawling on the ground Rolling on the floor
I'm gonna cry You look for me
Love Kristin, P.S. keep them coming

Reminds me of Rilo Kiley's song, "Does He Love You?" which is also in the form of a letter.

PJ Harvey - "The Garden" from Is this Desire ?


And he was walking in the garden
And he was walking in the night
And he was singing a sad love song
And he was praying for his life

And the stars came out around him
He was thinking of his sins
And he's looking at his song-bird
And he's looking at his wings

There, inside the garden
Came another with his lips
Said "won't you come and be my lover ?"
"Let me give you a little kiss"

And he came knelt down before him
And fell upon his knees
"I will give you gold and mountains
If you stay a while with me"

And there was trouble
Taking place
Trouble
Taking place

There, inside the garden
They kissed and the sun rose
And he walked a little further
And he found he was alone

And the wind it gathered round him
He was thinking of his sins
And he's looking for his song-bird
He was looking for his wings

And there was trouble
Taking place
Trouble
Taking place

There was trouble
Taking place
Trouble
Taking place

Fuck and Run by Liz Phair (from Exile in Guyville)


I woke up alarmed
I didn't know where I was at first
Just that I woke up in your arms
And almost immediately I felt sorry Cause I didn't think this would happen again
No matter what I could do or say
Just that I didn't think this would happen again
With or without my best intentions
What ever happened to a boyfriend
The kind of guy who tries to win you over
What ever happened to a boyfriend
The kind of guy who makes love cause he's in it, and

I want a boyfriend
I want a boyfriend
I want all that secret old shit
like letters and sodas
letters and sodas

You got up out of bed
You said you had a lot of work to do
But I heard arrest in your head And almost immediately I felt sorry
Cause I didn't think this would happen again
No matter what I could do or say
Just that I didn't think this would happen again
With or without my best intentions

I want a boyfriend
I want a boyfriend
I want all that secret old shit
like letters and sodas
letters and sodas

I can feel it in my bones
I'm gonna spend another year alone
Fuck and run
Fuck and run
Even when I was seventeen
Fuck and run
Fuck and run
Even when I was twelve

You almost felt bad You said that I should call you up but
I knew much better than that
And almost immediately I felt sorry
Cause I didn't think this would happen again
No matter what I could do or say
Just that I didn't think this would happen again
With or without my best intentions

I can feel it in my bones
I'm gonna spend my whole life alone
Fuck and run
Fuck and run
Even when I was seventeen
Fuck and run
Fuck and run
Even when I was twelve

Sunny by Bobby Hebb

Sunny, yesterday my life was filled with rain.
Sunny, you smiled at me and really eased the pain.
The dark days are gone, and the bright days are here,
My Sunny one shines so sincere.
Sunny one so true, I love you.

Sunny, thank you for the sunshine bouquet.
Sunny, thank you for the love you brought my way.
You gave to me your all and all.
Now I feel ten feet tall.
Sunny one so true, I love you.

Sunny, thank you for the truth you let me see.
Sunny, thank you for the facts from A to C.
My life was torn like a wind-blown sand,
And the rock was formed when you held my hand.
Sunny one so true, I love you.

Sunny, thank you for the smile upon your face.
Sunny, thank you for the gleam that shows its grace.
You're my spark of nature's fire,
You're my sweet complete desire.
Sunny one so true, I love you...

Tori Amos - Siren

And you know you're
Gonna lie to you
In your own way

Know know too well
Know the chill
Know she breaks
My siren

Never was one
For a
Prissy girl
Coquette
Call in for
An ambulance
Reach high
Doesn't
Mean she's
Holy
Just means
She's got a cellular
Handy
Almost
Brave
Almost
Pregnant
Almost in love "vanilla"

And you know you're
Gonna lie to you
In your own way

And you don't need the light
To guide you though this




quite a brilliant song, come to listen of it!
