The Lyrics Thread-Part IV

Room of Angels- by Akira Yamaoka

You lie silent there before me
your tears they mean nothing to me
the wind howling at the window
the love you never gave
I give to you

Really don’t deserve it
but now there’s nothing you can do
so sleep in your only memory of me
my dearest mother

Here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don’t feel enough for you to cry oh well
here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
goodbye
goodbye

So insignificant
sleeping dormant deep inside of me
are you hiding away lost
under the sewers
maybe flying high in the clouds
perhaps you’re happy without me
so many seeds have been sown in the field
and who could sprout up so blessedly
if I had died
I would have never felt sad at all
you will not hear me say I’m sorry
where is the light
wonder if it’s weeping somewhere

Here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don’t feel enough for you to cry oh well
here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye

Here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don’t feel enough for you to cry oh well
here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye

Here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don’t feel enough for you to cry oh well
here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye

Here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
it was always you that I despised
I don’t feel enough for you to cry oh well
here’s a lullaby to close your eyes good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye
good-bye

These lyrics have been playing in my mind since the weekend. I heard them when I saw Shrek again and then it was also played in ER this week. So if I post them here they might eventually leave me alone :tongue:
[i]
Hallelujah

I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music do you?
It goes like this – the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled King composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Maybe I’ve been here before
I know this room, I’ve walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

There was a time when you let me know
What’s real and going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The Holy Dark was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Maybe there’s a God above
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
And it’s not a cry you can hear at night
It’s not somebody who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
[/i]

I saw moogle’s post on Hallelujah and got all excited, it’s been in my head too ^^;; But, this is another song I really love right now—another Darren Hayes song ^^;;;;; but ^^;;; My fav. part is:

And I am worthless.
It is futile.
You’re invisible.
I am infantile.

just sounds awesome there. ^^; :smile:

Darren Hayes-Step Into the Light

I have turned away from you,
and I am god-less.
A wasteland of poison;
a hidden fortress.

I have blackened out the stars,
and hidden frequencies.
I have silenced all the waves,
and forbidden secrecies.

Chorus:
Just step into your light.
This dog doesn’t bite - no.
I just want to be your friend,
you know, I’ve never been in love before.
I’ve never been in love before.

-Ohh ohh ohh-

There is nothing of you, now,
No ghost, no, not a trace.
No flower, not a seed nor perfume, in your place.
I have searched amidst a barren plain of emptiness.

And I am worthless.
It is futile.
You’re invisible.
I am infantile.

Chorus:
Step into the light - oh.
This dog doesn’t bite -yo.
Just wanna be your friend,
You know, I’ve never been in love before.
I’ve never been in love before.

-Ohh oh ohh-

I have murdered the divine in me;
set the godness free,
I have squandered it all.
Like less than the sum,
I am parts of a whole;
there is something missing,
There is something I stole
(There is something I stole…)

Why have you forsaken me?
Where do you hide?
I feel the betrayal
simmers, it blisters,
it digs downand burrows,
deeper inside,
the more that I try,
I cannot deny it.

It feels like
It feels like
(I’ve never been…)
It feels like
(I’ve never been in love before…)
I’ve never been in love before.

It feels like
(I’ve never been in love before…)
It feels like
(I’ve never been in love before…)
It feels like
(love…)

Step into the light - oh.
This dog doesn’t bite - no.
Just wanna be your friend,
You know that I’ve never been in love before,
(love before…)

Just a step into the light -oh.
You know that this dog doesn’t bite - no.
Take hold of my hand
You know that I’ve never been in love before,
-Oohhhhhh-

I Don’t Wanna Stop lyrics by Ozzy Osbourne.

I don’t know what they’re talking about
I’m making my own decisions
This thing that I found
Ain’t gonna bring me down
I’m like a junkie without an addiction

Mama don’t cry
I just wanna say hi
Like playing with danger or fear
Everybody’s walking but nobody’s talking
It looks a lot better from here

All my life I’ve been over the top
I don’t know what I’m doing,
All I know is I don’t wanna stop
All fired up, I’m gonna go till I drop
You’re either in or in the way, don’t make me
I don’t wanna stop

Why don’t they ever listen to me?
Is this a one-way conversation?
Nothing they say is gonna set me free
Don’t need to make no reservations

To make me religious for only one god
I don’t need another saviour
Don’t try to change my mind
You know I’m one of a kind
Ain’t gonna change my bad behaviour

All my life I’ve been over the top
I don’t know what I’m doing,
All I know is I don’t wanna stop
All fired up, I’m gonna till I drop
You’re either in or in the way, don’t make me
I don’t wanna stop

All my life I’ve been over the top
I don’t know what I’m doing,
All I know is I don’t wanna stop
All fired up, I’m gonna go till I drop
You’re either in or in the way, don’t make me
I don’t wanna stop

I don’t wanna stop
I don’t wanna stop
I don’t wanna stop
I don’t wanna stop

All my life I’ve been over the top
I don’t know what I’m doing,
All I know is I don’t wanna stop
All fired up, I’m gonna go till I drop
You’re either in or in the way, don’t make me
I don’t wanna stop

All my life I’ve been over the top
I don’t know what I’m doing,
All I know is I don’t wanna stop
All fired up, I’m gonna go till I drop
You’re either in or in the way, don’t make me
I don’t wanna stop

Knights Of Cydonia-- Muse

Come ride with me through the veils of history,
I’ll show you a God falls asleep on the job,
How can we win when fools can be kings?
Don’t waste your time or time will waste you

No-one’s going to take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No-one’s going to take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

No-one’s going to take me alive
The time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

Lost to Apathy - Dark Tranquillity

The unsaid tone of weak despair
Fail to resonate
Frayed ends of our binding threads
Will disintegrate

By laws our physique state
Failure to communicate

None too sentient
Hear no, see no works its magic
Against all function

Ongoing choices
The trials will end
Filter the nonsense
And laugh at what’s left
Indecision/non vision
What matters taken away

Look at the shell that is you
Empty, fragile, weak
Soon the battle is over
Lost to Apathy

So overcome with pointless tears
To test pain receptors
Nothing matters ever here
Put up a non reaction

These eyes will never see
Covered up from reality

Look at the shell that is you
Empty, fragile, weak
Soon this battle is over
Lost to Apathy

The unknown world that you deny
No priority
Cannot fail if you never start
How predictable

I want to know
Where did it end?
For madness to start
Always the skeptic
Never be part
Introvertive /non descriptive
It matters not

Look at the shell that is you
Empty, fragile, weak
Soon this battle is over
Lost to Apathy

I’ve found some wonderful lines from a Nightwish song (Ever Dream):

“Your beauty cascaded on me
in this white night fantasy”

The way they’re sung is great too. Poetry.

For some reason i seem to be a fan of Canadian music. Alexisonfire,three days grace and Thousand foot Kruthc are all canadian wierd eh.

sorry i posted so many and sorry if some lyrics are incomplete I couldn’t help putting this many. :shy:

Alexisonfire-Keep It On Wax

[Wade:] I, I guess the only thing cheap to you was your friends
[George:] You can always make new friends
[Wade:] (oh well, oh well)
[George:] But when you sell them out will they be worth as much?
[2x]

[George:] Now this bridge is ashes
It might as well have never been built
It might as well have never been built
and the river that it crossed
Looks like an ocean now
looks like an ocean now

[Wade:] Times change and people change with them
Some people love to play the victim
[Dallas:] Love to play the victim
[Wade:] You threw caution to the wind
Washed away these few last years for nothing
[Dallas:] Was it all for nothing?
[Chris:] Keep it on wax

[George:] You’re not the only one
Who’s had to make sacrifices
We all had to make sacrifices
And time won’t heal shit
When you’ve got your hands in my pockets
When you’ve got your hands

[George:] Kick, Kick, Kick
Scream, Scream, Scream
[Wade:] It don’t change a goddamn thing (It don’t change)
[George:] Kick, Kick, Kick
Scream, Scream, Scream (A goddamn thing)
[2x]

[Wade:] I, I guess, the only thing cheap to you is your friends
I guess, the only thing cheap to you is your friends
I guess, the only thing cheap to you is your friends
I guess, the only thing cheap to you is your friends

[George:] Oh, what a fucking shame
Oh, that you had to mess things up this bad

[Wade:] Times change and people change with them
Some people love to play the victim
[Dallas:] Love to play the victim
[Wade:] You threw caution to the wind
Washed away these few last years for nothing
[Dallas:] Was it all for nothing?

[Wade:] It’s gone, it’s gone
[George:] There’s nothing left
[Chris:] Keep it on wax
[2x]

Linkin Park-Valentine’s Day

My insides all turned to ash, so slow
And blew away as I collapsed, so cold
A black wind took them away, from sight
And held the darkness over day, that night

And the clouds above move closer
Looking so dissatisfied
But the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing
I used to be my own protection, but not now
Cause my path had lost direction, somehow
A black wind took you away, from sight
And held the darkness over day, that night

And the clouds above move closer
Looking so dissatisfied
And the ground below grew colder
As they put you down inside
But the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing

So now you’re gone, and I was wrong
I never knew what it was like, to be alone

On a Valentine’s Day, on a Valentine’s Day
On a Valentine’s Day, on a Valentine’s Day
On a Valentine’s Day, on a Valentine’s Day
(I used to be my own protection, but not now)
On a Valentine’s Day, on a Valentine’s Day
(Cause my mind has lost direction, somehow)
On a Valentine’s Day, on a Valentine’s Day
(I used to be my own protection, but not now)
On a Valentine’s Day, on a Valentine’s Day
(Cause my mind has lost direction, somehow)

Thousand Foot Krutch-Breathe You In

Taking hold, breaking in
The pressures on, need to circulate
Mesmerized and taken in
Moving slow, so it resonates
It’s time to rest, not to sleep away
My thoughts alone, try to complicate
I’ll do my best, to seek you out
And be myself, and not impersonate

[Chorus:]
I tried so hard to not walk away
And when things don’t go my way
I’ll still carry on and on just the same
I’ve always been strong
But can’t make this happen
'Cause I need to breathe, I want to breathe you in
The fear of becoming
I’m so tired of running
'Cause I need to breathe, I want to breath you in
I want to breathe you in

I’m going in, so cover me
Your compass will, help me turn the page
The laughing stock, I’ll never be
Because I won’t let them take me

[Chorus]

Took awhile to see all the love that’s around me
Through the highs and lows there’s a truth that I’ve known
And it’s you

I’ve always been strong
But can’t make this happen
'Cause I need to breathe, I want to breathe you in
The fear of becoming
I’m so tired of running
‘Cause I need to breathe, I want to breathe you in
I want to breathe you in
I want to breathe you in
I want to breathe you in
I want to, I want to
I want to breathe you in
I want to breathe you in
I want to breathe; I want to, I want to
Wanna breathe
I want to breathe you in
I want to breathe you in
I wanna breathe

Three Days Grace-Animal I Have Become
I can’t escape this hell
So many times i’ve tried
But i’m still caged inside
Somebody get me through this nightmare
I can’t control myself

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it’s not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal
(This animal, this animal)

I can’t escape myself
(I can’t escape myself)
So many times i’ve lied
(So many times i’ve lied)
But there’s still rage inside
Somebody get me through this nightmare
I can’t control myself

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it’s not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal I have become
Help me believe it’s not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal

Somebody help me through this nightmare
I can’t control myself
Somebody wake me from this nightmare
I can’t escape this hell

(This animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal)

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it’s not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal I have become
Help me believe it’s not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal
(This animal I have become)

Eagle ABBA

[color=blue]They came flying from far away, now I’m under their spell
I love hearing the stories that they tell
They’ve seen places beyond my land and they’ve found new horizons
They speak strangely but I understand
And I dream Im an eagle
And I dream I can spread my wings

Flying high, high, I’m a bird in the sky
I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please

As all good friends we talk all night, and we fly wing to wing
I have questions and they know everything
Theres no limit to what I feel, we climb higher and higher
Am I dreaming or is it all real?
Is it true I’m an eagle?
Is it true I can spread my wings?

Flying high, high, I’m a bird in the sky (I’m an eagle)
I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly (what a feeling)
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please

And I dream I’m an eagle
And I dream I can spread my wings

Flying high, high, I’m a bird in the sky (I’m an eagle)
I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly (what a feeling)
Over mountains and forests and seas
High, high, I’m a bird in the sky (Im an eagle)
I’m an eagle that rides on the breeze
High, high, what a feeling to fly (what a feeling)
Over mountains and forests and seas
And to go anywhere that I please[/color]

Marillion - Lavender

[color=blue]I was walking in the park dreaming of a spark
When I heard the sprinklers whisper
Shimmer in the haze of summer lawns
Then I heard the children singing
They were running through the rainbows
They were singing a song for you
Well it seemed to be a song for you
The one I wanted to write for you, for you
Lavenders blue, dilly dilly, lavenders green
When I am King, dilly dilly, you will be Queen
A penny for your thoughts my dear
A penny for your thoughts my dear
I.O.U. for your love, IOU for your love

Lavenders green, dilly dilly, lavenders blue
When you love me, dilly dilly, I will love you
A penny for your thoughts my dear
A penny for your thoughts my dear
IOU for your love, IOU for your love

For your love[/color]

This song is just WONDERFULL!

What Else is There?
RÖYKSOPP[Trip Hop] [Videoclip]

It was me on that road
But you couldn’t see me
Too many lights on, but nowhere near here

It was me on that road
Still you couldn’t see me
And then flashlights and explosions

Roads are getting nearer
We cover distance but not together
I am the storm and I am the wonder
And the flashlights, nightmares
And sudden explosions

I don’t know what more to ask for
I was given just one wish

It’s about you and the sun
A morning run
The story of my maker
What I have and what I ache for

I’ve got a golden ear
I cut and I spear
And what else is there
Roads are getting nearer
We cover distance still not together

If I am the storm if I am the wonder
Will I have flashlights, nightmares
And sudden explosions

There’s no room where I can go and
You’ve got secrets too

i don’t know what more to ask for
i was given just one wish

Wake Up
ARCADE FIRE [Alt/Art+Indie Rock]

Somethin’ filled up
my heart with nothin’,
someone told me not to cry.

But now that I’m older,
my heart’s colder,
and I can see that it’s a lie.

Children wake up,
hold your mistake up,
before they turn the summer into dust.

If the children don’t grow up,
our bodies get bigger but our hearts get torn up.
We’re just a million little god’s
causin rain storms turnin’ every good thing to rust.

I guess we’ll just have to adjust.

With my lighnin’ bolts a glowin’
I can see where I am goin’ to be
when the reaper he reaches and touches my hand.

With my lightnin’ bolts a glowin’
I can see where I am goin’
With my lighnin’ bolts a glowin’
I can see where I am go-goin’

You’d better look out below

hehehe. I have 110 listens on the album that “Wake Up” is on. When I went to see them in concert, that was the song they closed with. It was the best concert I’ve ever been to.

“Backstreets” By Bruce Springsteen

One soft infested summer me and terry became friends
Trying in vain to breathe the fire we was born in
Catching rides to the outskirts tying faith between our teeth
Sleeping in that old abandoned beach house getting wasted in the heat
And hiding on the backstreets, hiding on the backstreets
With a love so hard and filled with defeat
Running for our lives at night on them backstreets

Slow dancing in the dark on the beach at stocktons wing
Where desperate lovers park we sat with the last of the duke street kings
Huddled in our cars waiting for the bells that ring
In the deep heart of the night to set us loose from everything
To go running on the backstreets, running on the backstreets
We swore wed live forever on the backstreets we take it together

Endless juke joints and valentino drag where dancers scraped the tears
Up off the street dressed down in rags running into the darkness
Some hurt bad some really dying at night sometimes it seemed
You could hear the whole damn city crying blame it on the lies that killed us
Blame it on the truth that ran us down you can blame it all on me terry
It dont matter to me now when the breakdown hit at midnight
There was nothing left to say but I hated him and I hated you when you went
Away

Laying here in the dark youre like an angel on my chest
Just another tramp of hearts crying tears of faithlessness
Remember all the movies, terry, wed go see
Trying to learn how to walk like heroes we thought we had to be
And after all this time to find were just like all the rest
Stranded in the park and forced to confess
To hiding on the backstreets, hiding on the backstreets
We swore forever friends on the backstreets until the end
Hiding on the backstreets, hiding on the backstreets

Dead Tree by Dir en Grey
it’s all in Japanese, so none of the translated lyrics rhyme

[color=darkred]Heres is some water for the dead tree
I see your reflection in the dirty water
Dreams and aspirations Your ideals in the big sky

Passionate Red
The one I loved so much…

Ideals being sweeter than candy are just ideals

No one wants the present
Point your finger
Goodbye

I feel love on my forehead at gunpoint
Even the child with the red coat swallows her tears as she faces reality

Why? Why? Over and Over
It will never heal
Why? Why? Over and Over
My dead heart…

Love, tenderness, freedom, and peace[/color]

First heard this in Dead Rising, one of the strangest, catchiest songs ever:

Gone Guru- Lifeseeker

Well he ain’t my boy but the brother is heavy
gave away my possessions and moved in to a chevy
van, yeah thats the masterplan
drive into the woods and eat corn out the can
yeah I gave it all away, the hard rock band
the groupies, the booze, the all night jams
now all these fans, asking “Where did he go?”
meditating on a rock letting go of the ego
so rappin with the squirrels is the way of the mountain
they took half my nuts and berries
and riddled “Who’s counting?”
bit my finger with the truth, the blood was spouting
now my cup overfloweth, just like a fountain
seen birds in the sky, trees inbetween
grubs in the ground, it was so serene
the sky was blue, yeah the grass was green!
and that’s three square meals if you know what I mean
so now I wake up every morning with a fat cup of p*ss
my third eye’s open, so give me some swiss miss
saw a thirty foot fairy walking down your street
thought I was down with God, I had to yell retreat

because I gone guru so cut the ballyhoo
rock the tamborines and the didgeridoo
set the animals free from the pimpin zoo
and I’ll elevate your mind like airplane glue

Out in the desert on a three day stint
I had a revelation and I made a mint
so take a hit and won’t you join the club
send your wives to my hut for the body rub
Mental guru in the subaru
four wheel drive to the commune
pick up the crew
and we out to the zen monastery on the prairie
where I milk the holy cow but quit the dairy
so run with the yeti eating vegi spaghetti
don’t have to live like no refuge, peace to tom petty!
ready steady spiritually grow
til I found out my boy worked for the cointelpro
gram damn now I gots to scram
and start handing out my leaflets in bethlehem
cause the bibles played out so I’m writing a new text
we are all one, so what’s the problem with group sex!?
and so many children want to join the fold
mike love on line two, put that sucker on hold
and shine, to thine own self be true
they can’t tell you what to do when you’ve gone guru
yeah shine, to thine own self be true
they can’t tell you what to do when you’ve gone guru
you got to shine! to thine own self be true
they can’t tell you what to do when you’ve gone guru

gone guru in my new nehru
so rock the tamborines and the didgeridoo
I’ll deliver whoever pays what’s due
that’s nine for me and one for you

awwww yeah we got it going on and it’s strong up in here tonight
we got that incense, burning! we got them peacock feathers, tickling!
we got all that cuckoo karma connection, that you can use
so come on people, get with the program, we can get this together…
tonight!

too many wives for ohio they were looking to try me
so I got twelve divorces said aloha hawaii
arrived without traveling they lost my bags
another trial for my people, don’t scratch the jag!
you know they say hang loose, but they really don’t mean it!
deported me to rio and you watched it on cnet
news chumps had me singing the blues
til thirty thousand showed up with the right to choose
rose petals in bed milk in my bath
and now harrison ford wants my autograph
I laughed when we met cause he busted a sweat
then I stuck out my tongue he donated a jet
I stole the spotlight from the dali lama
cause my crews coming tight in the orange pajamas
got sixteen caddies and 29 rolls
**** the shoes I transcended the sole
with constant expansion I live in a mansion
getting jiggy with madonna and marilyn manson
sixty minutes expose taxes you never paid
papparazzi! code blue! down toupee!
yes I’m starting to age I can feel it in my bones
my advisors tell me, start thinking bout clones
found out! heaven is a place on earth!
I cut off my head it cost all I was worth
cryogenic robot, now my head can spin
I’ll be around a million years so let the party begin
party robot, now my head can spin
I’ll be around a million years let the party begin

gone guru new nehru
rock tamborine and didgeri too
must free animals from pimpin zoo
deliver who? 2+2
gone gone g gone gone gone gone gone gone gone gone
gone gone g gone gone gone gone gone gone gone gone

THE VICE by Sonata Arctica
(this is seriously one of the strangest, but one of the best lyrics I’ve ever read/heard)

Number nine out of eleven little litter mates,
rotten apples all the way.
Litter mates all with different fates,
taught them almost all I knew.
And now the best, the brightest,
number nine of eleven little litter mates,
feeling low, my ace after my home

In the bright daylight, little number nine,
dressed to kill much like me.
Takes a look at the free world behind the gate,
of the castle and this cage,
I leave the base, the night awaits,
men are well-hidden for the litter mate.
He played it all but one
One by one

Eleven little litter mates,
only number nine’s not in sight.
Hiding for the moonlight, it’s the day
Kisses burn their paper-thin wings away.

Hate me, hate me, they want you to break me,
love is for the weak and the restless.
They’ve all been locked in a twisted dream,
for now until destiny’s overruled,
trailing back to the pagan cathedral.

Don’t love me, don’t you dare,
I lie, I cheat and I don’t care.
You can go telling me things about fidelity

Truth can set me free.
He’s then in vain running to a needle,
I love, I hate don’t need anyone,
Let’s all, let it all hear it loud and clear.
I’m here but I am raw

[Without my eyes, they’ve let the locks untied,
I turned my weakness into [flame for vision].

The more I hear, the more I see, I can feel the black vice juice
What I did was a must, face the music away from the light alone
Someone got to know me well
drown me in their wishing well,
making mistakes, we all do,
worst of mine was trusting you, a stranger

For now I’m feeling fine,
drank poison like the sign
Now touch the greatest fear,
impaired to look sincere.

One step behind you, turn around,
and I am gone with what I need.
The essence of timely death,
cold and dark, loveless heart.

Funeral is one of the best albums I own. I’m amazed at their virtuosity, at the quality of the lyrics and of the album as a whole. Arcade Fire is definitely one of the best bands of the recent times. :smile:

GOTAN PROJECT [Tango+Electronic] [Clip]

En el mundo habrá un lugar
para cada despertar
un jardín de pan y de poesía

Porque puestos a soñar
fácil es imaginar
esta humanidad en harmonía

Vibra mi mente al pensar
en la posibilidad
de encontrar un rumbo diferente

Para abrir de par en par
los cuadernos del amor
del gauchaje y de toda la gente

Qué bueno che, qué lindo es
reírnos como hermanos
Porqué esperar para cambiar
de musica y de compás.

Can’t be bothered writing a translation right now. It’s basically a song say “oh how nice it would be to change this suffocating rhythm of the world, how nice it would be to have humankind in harmony, what are we waiting to change?” In Spanish. I’m writing an article on this song for Semiotics.

I just had to google :user: to look for the lyrics after my last dream…
I found three…

Roof with a hole MEAT PUPPETS

The colors are flowing from the wall to the floor
And only an outline still remains
Cause the roof’s got a hole in it
And everything’s been ruined by the rain
There may be diamonds in that dream on the hill
But the people who live there still complain
Cause the roof’s got a hole in it
And everything is soaking in the rain
No one can practice the common sense that they see
Through the nickle and diming I’ll explain
When the roof’s got a hole in it
Everything is ruined by the rain
My head’s got a hole in it
And everything’s been ruined by the rain

Everything’s been ruined by the rain
Everything’s been ruined
Everything’s been ruined by the rain

Fixing A Hole THE BEATLES

I’m fixing a hole where the rain gets in
And stops my mind from wandering
Where it will go.
I’m filling in the cracks that ran through the door
And kept my mind from wandering
Where it will go.
And it really doesn’t matter if I’m wrong
I’m right
Where I belong I’m right
Where I belong.
See the people standing there who
Disagree and never win
And wonder why they don’t get in my door.
I’m painting the room in a colourful way
And when my mind is wandering
There I will go.
And it doesn’t really matter if I’m wrong I’m right
Where I belong I’m right
Where I belong.
Silly people run around they worry me
And never ask me why they don’t get past my door.
I’m taking the time for a number of things
That weren’t important yesterday
And I still go.
I’m fixing a hole where the rain gets in
And stops my mind from wandering
Where it will go.

Don’t Let the Rain Come Down (Crooked Little Man) Serendipity Singers

CHORUS
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don’t let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don’t let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don’t let the rain come down
My roof’s got a hole in it and I might drown
Oh, yes, my roof’s got a hole in it and I might drown
There was a crooked man and he had a crooked smile
Had a crooked sixpence and he walked a crooked mile
Had a crooked cat and he had a crooked mouse
They all lived together in a crooked little house

CHORUS

Well, this crooked little man and his crooked little smile
Took his crooked sixpence and he walked a crooked mile
Bought some crooked nails and a crooked little bat
Tried to fix his roof with a rat-tat-tat-tat-tat

CHORUS

Now this crooked little man and his crooked cat and mouse
They all live together in a crooked little house
Has a crooked door with a crooked little latch
Has a crooked roof with a crooked little patch
CHORUS

CHORUS

(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don’t let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don’t let the rain come down
(Ah, ah) Oh, no, don’t let the rain come down
My roof’s got a hole in it (my roof’s got a hole in it)
My roof’s got a hole in it and I might drown

Seishoujo Ryoukiri by ALI project

Mada iwanaide Jumonmeita sono kotoba
Ai nante hane no you ni karui
Sasayaite Papa yori yasashii tenooru de
Ubau kakugo ga aru no naraba

Hyakuman no bara no beddo ni
Umore miru yume yori mo kaguwashiku
watashi wa ikiteru no
Dou sureba minikui mono ga habikotta kono sekai
Kegarezu ni habataite yukeru no ka
Hitori mayu no naka Manabitsuzuketemo
Suishou no hoshizora wa toosugiru no

Mada furenaide Sono furueru yubisaki wa
Hananusubito no amai tamerai
Furete mo ii Kono fukai mune no oku ni made
Todoku jishin ga aru no naraba

Hakuba no oujisama nante shinjiteru wake ja nai

Translation:
Do not speak those enchanting words just yet
the ting called “love” is as light as a feather
whisper to me in a tenor voice gentler then Papa’s
if you are prepared to take it all away

I lie in a bed of a million roses
the sent is more fragrant than my clouded dream
Am I alive?
How is it that unsightly ting have spread throughout this world?
Can I flap my wings without dirtying them?
Even if I should continue to learn alone in my cocoon
the crystalline starry sky is to far away

Don not touch me yet those trembling fingers are
the sweet hesitation of a flower thief
It is all right to touch me
if you believe it will reach deep within my chest

I do not believe in a knight on a white horse

Bright Eyes - Nothing Get’s Crossed Out

The future has got me worried, such awful thoughts.
My head is a carousel of pictures.
The spinning never stops.
I just want someone to walk in front
and I’ll follow the leader.
Like when I fell under the weight of a schoolboy crush.
Started carrying her books and doing lots of drugs. I almost forgot who I was,
but came to my senses.
Now I’m tryin’ to be assertive.
I’m making plans.
Wanna rise to the occasion, yeah
meet all of their demands.
But all I do is just lay in bed
and hide under the covers.
I know I should be brave
but I’m just too afraid of all this change.
And it’s too hard to focus through all this doubt.
I keep making these “To Do” lists but nothing gets crossed out.
Working on the record seems pointless now.
When the world ends, who’s gonna hear it?
But Im tryin’ and take some comfort in written words,
yeah Tim I heard your album and it’s better than good.
When you get off tour I think we should hang and black out together.
Because I’ve been feeling sentimental for days gone by…
all those summers singing, drinking, laughing, wasting out time.
Remember all those songs and the way we smiled
in those basements made of music.
But now I’ve got to crawl, to get anywhere at all. I’m not as strong as I thought.
So when I’m lost in a crowd,
I hope that you’ll pick me out.
Oh, how I long to be found.
The grass grew high. I laid down.
Now I wait for a hand to lift me up, help me stand.
I have been laying so low
Don’t want to lay here no more.
Don’t want to lay here no more.
Don’t want to lay here no more.
Don’t want to lay here no more.
But if everything that happens is supposed to be
and it is predetermined, can’t change your destiny.
Then I guess I’ll just keep moving, someday, maybe, I’ll get to where I’m going.

Fly - Blind Guardian
I’ve always loved Peter Pan.

Stop, be quiet now
Out with the light and,
Then up and down it goes
Fly out with the light
There at the door,
The Inspiration I´ve looked for,
The Spirit of the youth appears

No one ever dares to speak
It’s nothing else but fantasy
It’s make believe, make believe

No one ever dares to speak
It’s nothing else but fantasy
But One day it all will come to life

Step out of line
And I’ll teach you how to fly
The Away we´ll go
Leave your mark, leave your mark in the land of mine

The second one to the right
And then Straight on until morning light

Stop, be quiet now
No irritation
No not the slightest doubt

We go at once
Quick - We better hurry,
There from the road I sense
The end of fun gets near
Wonderful thoughts and imaginations
These dreams will lift you up

What is it like? You ask me, my dear
Will there be fairies, or things to fear
For fairies sake I’d say you better come with me
So soon you´ll see,
Now up and down it goes and round
Round and round and round,

Praise to my cleverness
They all follow me,
All praise to innocence
That’s everything it needs,
Fly in,
Fly out,
They leave it all behind

Life is a map and it is quite confusing
The lights are up now let the play begin
She flies, she flies,
Into the light she flies
No words like “ust” in mind
She’s finding Neverland
There on the day she dies
Don’t stop it now,
She still enjoys the scene
Don’t stop it now,
Don’t stop it now,
Don’t stop it now,
Don’t stop it now, now, now
