Αεροπλανάκι από χαρτί

Image
Μου το έμαθαν σε κάποια σχολική εκδρομή και το ερωτεύτηκα από την πρώτη στιγμή που το είδα! Έμαθα σχεδόν αμέσως να το φτιάχνω και μόνη μου και έκτοτε το χαρίζω σε αγαπημένους φίλους. Σήμερα στο σινεμά, λίγο πριν αρχίσει η ταινία, έσκιζα με μανία μία μία τις σελίδες του προγράμματος προσπαθώντας να το θυμηθώ και τίποτα... Μεγάλη απογοήτευση. Ήρθα σπίτι και άρχισα να τραβάω μία μία τις λευκές σελίδες Α4 απ' τον εκτυπωτή, διπλώνοντάς τις με όλους τους πιθανούς σχετικούς με αυτό που είχα στο μυαλό μου συνδυασμούς. Τίποτα. Ακόμα μεγαλύτερη απογοήτευση. Είπα να ψάξω στο ίντερνετ να δω μήπως το βρω πουθενά. Βρήκα αρκετές εικόνες και οδηγίες για κατασκευές και αεροπλανάκια από χαρτί, αλλά πουθενά το δικό μου, εκείνο που έφτιαχνα μικρή. Σκέφτηκα ότι αν το θυμηθώ ποτέ το πρώτο που θα κάνω θα είναι να το μοιραστώ στο ίντερνετ. Έτσι ώστε αν το ξαναξεχάσω να υπάρχει κάποιος εκεί έξω να μου το θυμίσει! Έκλεισα το φυλλομετρητή (καλά δεν το είπα;) και τράβηξα άλλη μια λευκή κόλλα Α4 απ' τον ε…

Edie (Ciao Baby) - The Cult

Image
Always said you were a youthquaker, Edie
A stormy little world shaker
Oh, Warhol's darling queen, Edie
An angel with a broken wing
The dogs lay at your feet, Edie
Oh, we caressed your cheek
Ooh, stars wrapped in your hair
Ooh, life without a care
But you're not there
Oh, caught up in an endless scene, Edie
Yeah, paradise, a shattered dream
Oh, wired on the pills you took, Edie
Your innocence dripped blood, sweet child
The dogs lay at your feet, Edie
Oh, we caressed your cheek
Ooh, stars wrapped in your hair
Ooh, life without a care
Ciao baby
Shake it, boy
Oh, sweet little sugar talker
Paradise dream stealer
Oh, Warhol's little queen, Edie
An angel with a broken wing, oh
The dogs lay at your feet, Edie
Oh, we caressed your cheek, well
Stars wrapped in your hair
Ooh, life without a care
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Why did you kiss the world goodbye?
Ciao baby
Don't you know paradise takes time?
Ciao, yeah
Why did you kiss the world goodbye?
Ciao baby
Don't you know paradise tak…

I'll Stand By You - The Pretenders

Oh, why you look so sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now.

Don't be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
'Cause I've seen the dark side, too.

When the night falls on you
You don't know what to do
Nothing you confess could make me love you less

I'll stand by you, I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you.

So, if you're mad, get mad
Don't hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now.

Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry, too
Well, I'm a lot like you.

When you're standing at the crossroads
And don't know which path to choose
Let me come along, 'cause even if you're wrong

I'll stand by you, I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me in into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you.

And when, when the night falls on you, baby
You're feeling all alone,
you won't be on your own

I'll stand by you, I'll stan…

Psychopomp - The Tea Party

Image
You wanted this
So sad to see
The sweet decay
Of ecstasy

And you want it all

And you want it all

A frozen sun,
Would guide you there
As shadows hide
The deep despair

And you want it all

I'll give you something more
And you'll fade away
One last kiss before
You fade away.

So sleep tonight,
In idle dreams
The pain will drown,
Your silent screams

And you want it all

And you want it all

I'll give you something more
And you'll fade away
One last kiss before
You fade away
Lives you once adored
will fade away
Lies you can't ignore
You soon repay
As you fade away

As you fade away

As you fade away

As you fade away

And you'll fade away

Abide With Me - Perri Alleyne

Image
Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide;
When other helpers fail and comforts flee,
Help of the helpless, oh, abide with me.

I need Thy presence every passing hour;
What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s pow’r?
Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?
Through cloud and sunshine, oh, abide with me.

Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;
Earth’s joys grow dim, its glories pass away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me

Song To The Siren - This Mortal Coil

Image
On the floating, shapeless oceans
I did all my best to smile
til your singing eyes and fingers
drew me loving into your eyes.

And you sang "Sail to me, sail to me;
Let me enfold you."

Here I am, here I am waiting to hold you.
Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you here when I was full sail?

Now my foolish boat is leaning, broken love lost on your rocks.
For you sang, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow."
Oh my heart, oh my heart shies from the sorrow.

I'm as puzzled as a newborn child.
I'm as riddled as the tide.
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Or shall I lie with death my bride?

Hear me sing: "Swim to me, swim to me, let me enfold you."
"Here I am. Here I am, waiting to hold you."

Evidence - Katatonia

Image
I hold my breath and check the time
One minute no collapse
If you only knew what I would do for you
One thirty breathing lapse
We're going in my voice is thin
When I tell you to remember
That no one will find you
My promise from the heart
If we part my pulse will guide you through

Be still for a moment
Everything depends upon you
If you die I will die too
Once we were heroes
But everything has changed since then
Now they recognize you too

I stay too long something's wrong
You walk out of the picture
I hold my breath and check the time
One thirty I collapse
We went in my voice was thin
When I told you to remember

I'm the evidence
You passed the test and that's so good for you
O love will you read the letters I will send to you
Will I come along
Will they let me out to take the test
O love is the score enough for me to pass the test

Heroes Never Die - Mostly Autumn

Image
The way the ins and outs of heaven still elude us to the end.
The tears, the sun, the rain, I feel them on my face against my skin.
We loved you then, we love you still.
And don't you know, don't you know that heroes never die?
They sail forever.

Slow the rainfalls, the memories blowing through
I stand with arms outstretched to catch the warmth of you.
Eyes to the heavens, screaming at the skies
Trying to send you messages still choking on goodbyes.
And I wonder why?

Gold November, yellow, brown and green
I try to picture you still somewhere in between
Cold the nightfalls, shadows drawing in
The glimpse I had of you is torn into the wind.
And I wonder why tracing paths we search the stormy sky?

The way the ins and outs of heaven still elude us to the end.
The tears, the sun, the rain, I feel them on my face against my skin.
We loved you then, we love you still.
And don't you know, don't you know that heroes never die?
They sail forever.

Close my eyes now and focus on t…
