I'm Still Standing - Elton John



You could never know what it's like
Your blood like winter freezes just like ice
And there's a cold lonely light that shines from you
You'll wind up like the wreck you hide behind that mask you use


And did you think this fool could never win
Well look at me, I'm coming back again
I got a taste of love in a simple way
And if you need to know while i'm still standing you just fade away


Don't you know I'm still standing better than i ever did
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid
I'm still standing after all this time
Picking up the pieces of my life without you on my mind


I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah
I'm still standing yeah yeah yeah


Once i never could hope to win
You starting down the road leaving me again
The threats you made were meant to cut me down
And if our love was just a circus you'd be a clown by now

Point of View - Fates Warning



Looking out on a familiar scene
There's no agreement in what we see
Your perception lacks clarity
And my perspective is blinding me
Side by side
Divided they stand

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side

Caught up in our convictions we forget
How our senses distort things we see
We can't accept our differences
But we can always disagree
Side by side
Divided they stand

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side

Where I stand is not so far from YOU
A different opinion is just another point of view

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side

Parallel lives running parallel with YOU
To the point where our horizons divide
My opinion is just a point of view
And your position is the other side

Bad Day - R.E.M.




A public service announcement followed me home the other day
I paid it nevermind. Go away.
Shit so thick you could stir with a stick- free Teflon whitewashed presidency
We're sick of being jerked around
Wear that on your sleeve


Broadcast me a joyful noise unto the times, lord,
Count your blessings
We're sick of being jerked around
We all fall down


Have you ever seen the televised St. Vitus subcommittee prize
Investigation dance? Those-ants-in-pants glances
Well, look behind the eyes
It's a hallowed, hollow anesthetized
"Save my own ass, screw these guys"
Smoke and mirror lock down


Broadcast me a joyful noise unto the times, lord,
Count your blessings
The papers wouldn't lie!
I sigh. Not one more


It's been a bad day
Please don't take a picture
It's been a bad day
Please


We're dug in the deep the price is steep
The auctioneer is such a creep
The lights went out, the oil ran dry
We blamed it on the other guy


Sure, all men are created equal
Here's the church, here's the steeple
Please stay tuned--we cut to sequel
Ashes, ashes, we all fall down


Broadcast me a joyful noise unto the times, lord, Count your blessings
Ignore the lower fears
Ugh, this means war


It's been a bad day
Please don't take a picture
It's been a bad day
Please


Broadcast me a joyful noise unto the times, lord,
Count your blessings
We're sick of being jerked around
We all fall down


It's been a bad day
Please don't take a picture
It's been a bad day
Please

That's When I Reach For My Revolver - Moby



Once I had my heroes
Once I had my dreams
But all of that is changed now
The truth begins again
The truth is not that comfortable, no


Mother taught us patience
The virtues of restraint
Father taught us boundaries
The knowledge we must go
I'm trying to protect my unity

 
That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
The spirit passes by this way


A friend of mine once told me
His one and only aim
To build a giant castle
And in it sign his name
Sign it with complete community


That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
The spirit passes by this way


Now that the sky is empty
And that is nothing new
Instead they look upon us
When they tell me
That we're nothing
I say!


That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
The spirit passes by this way


That's when I reach for my revolver
That's when it all gets blown away
That's when I reach for my revolver
The spirit passes by this way

Hurt - Johnny Cash

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real 

The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything


What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end

And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt


I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair

Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here


What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end

And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt


If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

Did It All For Love - Phenomena



Like a flame you touched my life
Felt so good felt so right
Time goes fast love grows slow
It's so hard to let go

I'll remember, I'll remember
Now I've got to go
I'll remember, I'll remember
Oh I love you so

You gave so much, didn't ask why
I can't explain so please don't cry
We took the chances, broke the line
Now we're running out of time

We shot the dice
Played the game
Did it all for love
Do it all again

We shot the dice
Played the game
Did it all for love
Do it all again

Oh so much I want to say
Now it's time to go away
Now forever you're with me (yet)
You're in my soul, I won't forget

Θάλασσες - ΝΑΜΑ



Θα θυμάμαι με τον ήλιο το πρωί
Πως ήσουν κάποτε για μένα της μέρας το φως

 
Θα θυμάμαι με τον ήχο της βροχής
Πως όταν έφυγες μια μέρα έκλαψε κι ο ουρανός


Μη ρωτάς, λοιπόν, για μένα
Μη γυρνάς στα περασμένα
Εγώ για σένα

 
Κι αν τραγούδια θα γράψω
Κι αν θάλασσες κλάψω
Για σένα

Πίσω δε θα γυρίσω
Φιλιά να ζητήσω
Χαμένα


Θα θυμάμαι πως οι όμορφες στιγμές
Έχουν χαθεί για μας στο χθες
Και δε θα ‘ρθουν ξανά


Θα θυμάμαι πως οι αγάπες οι παλιές
Είναι καράβια που γυρίζουν
Απ’ το πουθενά

 
Μη ρωτάς, λοιπόν, για μένα
Μη γυρνάς στα περασμένα
Εγώ για σένα


Κι αν τραγούδια θα γράψω
Κι αν θάλασσες κλάψω
Για σένα


Πίσω δε θα γυρίσω
Φιλιά να ζητήσω
Χαμένα

Spark - Tori Amos



She's addicted to nicotine patches
She's addicted to nicotine patches
She's afraid of the light in the dark
6:58 are you sure where my spark is
Here
Here
Here


She's convinced she could hold back a glacier
But she couldn't keep Baby alive
Doubting if there's a woman in there somewhere
Here


You say you don't want it again and again

But you don't really mean it
You say you don't want it
This circus we're in
But you don't you don't really mean it
You don't really mean it


If the Divine master plan is perfection
Maybe next I'll give Judas a try
Trusting my soul to the ice cream assassin
Here

 
You say you don't want it again and again

But you don't really mean it
You say you don't want it
This circus we're in
But you don't you don't really mean it
You don't really mean it


How may fates turn around in the overtime
Ballerinas that have fins that you'll never find
You thought that you were the bomb yeah
Well so did I
Say you don't want it
Say you don't want it


Say you don't want it again and again

But you don't really mean it
Say you don't want it
This circus we're in
But you don't you don't really mean it
You don't really mean it

 
She's addicted to nicotine patches
She's afraid of the light in the dark
6:58 are you sure where my spark is
Here

Kansas City - Marcus Mumford



I listen to you time and time again
While you tell me just what's right
And you tell me a thousand things a day
Then sleep somewhere's else at night
I'm going back to Kansas City

And I love you dear, but just how long
Can I keep singing the same old song
And I love you dear, but just how long
Can I keep singing the same old song
I'm going back to Kansas City

And you call me to come, then I do
And you say you made some mistake
You invite me into your house
Then you say you gotta pay for what you break
I'm going back to Kansas City

And I love you dear, but just how long
Can I keep singing the same old song

And I love you dear, but just how long
And I keep singing the same old song
I'm going back to Kansas City

Gypsy woman, you know every place I go
Even a thousand miles away from home
You don't care if I'm asleep or I'm awake
This fickle heart just turn to stone
I'm going back to Kansas City

And I love you dear, but just how long
Can I keep singing the same old song
And I love you dear, but just how long
Can I keep singing the same old song
I'm going back to Kansas City

And I love you dear, but just how long
Can I keep singing the same old song
And I love you dear, but just how long
Can I keep singing the same old song
I'm going back to Kansas City

Love Like Blood - Killing Joke



We must play our lives like soldiers in the field
The life is short
I'm running faster all the time
Strength and beauty destined to decay
So cut the rose in full bloom

'Til the fearless come and the act is done
A love like blood
A love like blood

'Til the fearless come and the act is done
A love like blood
A love like blood

Everyday through all frustration and despair
Love and hate fight with burning hearts 
Til legends live and man is god again
And self-preservation rules the day no more
 
We must dream of promised lands and fields
That's never fade in season
As we move towards no end we learn to die
Red tears are shed on gray

'Til the fearless come and the act is done
'Til the fearless come and the act is done

Atlantic City - Bruce Springsteen



Well they blew up the chicken man in Philly last night 
Now they blew up his house too
Down on the boardwalk they're gettin' ready for a fight 

Gonna see what them racket boys can do

Now there's trouble busin' in from outta state
And the D.A. can't get no relief
Gonna be a rumble out on the promenade and
The gamblin' commission's hangin' on by the skin of its teeth

Everything dies baby that's a fact
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back
Put your makeup on fix your hair up pretty 

And meet me tonight in Atlantic City
 
Well I got a job and tried to put my money away
But I got debts that no honest man can pay
So I drew what I had from the Central Trust
And I bought us two tickets on that Coast City bus


Everything dies baby that's a fact
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back
Put your makeup on fix your hair up pretty 

And meet me tonight in Atlantic City

Now our luck may have died and our love may be cold 

But with you forever I'll stay
We're goin' out where the sand's turnin' to gold
So put on your stockin's 'cause the night's getting' cold

And maybe everything dies that's a fact 
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back

Now I been lookin' for a job but it's hard to find
Down here it's just winners and losers and
Don't get caught on the wrong side of that line
Well I'm tired of comin' out on the losin' end
So honey last night I met this guy and I'm
Gonna do a little favor for him
Well I guess everything dies baby that's a fact
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back


Put your makeup on fix your hair up pretty and
Meet me tonight in Atlantic City

A Horse With No Name - America



On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
And the sky with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound

 
I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la ...


After two days in the desert sun
My skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun
I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told of a river that flowed
Made me sad to think it was dead


You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la ...


After nine days I let the horse run free
'Cause the desert had turned to sea
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The ocean is a desert with its life underground
And a perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no love


You see I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
La, la ..

No Milk Today - Herman's Hermits



No milk today, my love has gone away
The bottle stands for lorn, a symbol of the dawn
No milk today, it seems a common sight
But people passing by don't know the reason why


How could they know just what this message means
The end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams
How could they know the palace there had been
Behind the door where my love reigned as queen

 
No milk today, it wasn't always so
The company was gay, we'd turn night into day

 
But all that's left is a place dark and lonely
A terraced house in a mean street back of town
Becomes a shrine when I think of you only
Just two up two down

 
No milk today, it wasn't always so
The company was gay, we'd turn night into day
As music played the faster did we dance
We felt it both at once, the start of our romance

 
How could they know just what this message means
The end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams
How could they know a palace there had been
Behind the door where my love reigned as queen

 
No milk today, my love has gone away
The bottle stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn

 
But all that's left is a place dark and lonely
A terraced house in a mean street back of town
Becomes a shrine when I think of you only
Just two up two down


No milk today, it wasn't always so
The company was gay, we'd turn night into day
As music played the faster did we dance
We felt it both at once, the start of our romance


How could they know just what this message means
The end of my hopes, the end of all my dreams
How could they know a palace there had been
Behind the door where my love reigned as queen

 

No milk today, my love has gone away
The bottle stands forlorn, a symbol of the dawn

 
But all that's left is a place dark and lonely
A terraced house in a mean street back of town
Oh all that's left is a place dark and lonely
Just two up two down

In Colors - Minor Project



Cut me up in two, or three or four dark clouds.
I won't bring you rain,
I won't spend my time to prove you're good, or bad,
or tend to feel the ground.
That's not my fate
That's not your land.

Rising up that kids can be destroying,
can be exhausting but a smile comes when they grow.
Restless thoughts and actions 
you're so proud of when you know.
Or if you don't, they disappear and they feel wrong.

Right, you look up right again.
You broke your right to be the same like them.
I want them real,
I want them live their life in Peace.

Frost! He seem to hesitate.
My thoughts are black,
Your ones are reprimand.
I want you cool, I want you live your life in Colors.

Carve your name at benches, walls or sheets.
The road you walked was just a street.
There are no clouds or hidden doors.

Baciami Ancora - Lorenzo Jovanotti


Un bellissimo spreco di tempo, un'impresa impossibile
L'invenzione di un sogno, una vita in un giorno
Una tenda al di la' della duna

 
Un pianeta in un sasso, l'infinito in un passo 
Un riflesso di un sole sull'onda di un fiume
Son tornate le lucciole a Roma
Nei parchi del centro l'estate profuma


Una mamma, un'amante, una figlia
Un impegno, una volta una nuvola scura
Un magnete sul frigo, un quaderno di appunti
Una casa, un aereo che vola


Baciami ancora, baciami ancora
Tutto il resto è un rumore lontano
Una stella che esplode ai confini del cielo


Baciami ancora, baciami ancora
Voglio stare con te
Inseguire con te
Tutte le onde del nostro destino


Una bimba che danza, un cielo, una stanza
Una strada, un lavoro, una scuola
Un pensiero che sfugge, una luce che sfiora
Una fiamma che incendia l'aurora


Un errore perfetto, un diamante, un difetto
Uno strappo che non si ricuce
Un respiro profondo per non impazzire
Una semplice storia d'amore


Un pirata, un soldato, un dio da tradire
E l'occasione che non hai mai incontrato
La tua vera natura, la giustizia del mondo
Che punisce chi ha le ali e non vola


Baciami ancora, baciami ancora
Tutto il resto è un rumore lontano
Una stella che esplode ai confini del cielo

Baciami ancora, baciami ancora
Voglio stare con te
Invecchiare con te
Stare soli io e te sulla luna


Coincidenze, destino, un gigante, un bambino
Che gioca con l'arco e le frecce
Che colpisce e poi scappa
Un tesoro, una mappa, l'amore che detta ogni legge


Per provare a vedere che c'è laggiù in fondo
Dove sembra impossibile stare da soli
A guardarsi negli occhi a riempire gli specchi
Con i nostri riflessi migliori


Baciami ancora, baciami ancora
Voglio stare con te
Inseguire con te
Tutte le onde del nostro destino


Baciami ancora...

Another Love - Tom Odell



I wanna take you somewhere so you know I care
But it's so cold and I don't know where
I brought you daffodils in a pretty string
But they won't flower like they did last spring

And I wanna kiss you, make you feel alright
I'm just so tired to share my nights
I wanna cry and I wanna love
But all my tears have been used up

On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up

And if somebody hurts you, I wanna fight
But my hands been broken, once too many times
So I'll use my voice, I'll be so fucking rude
Words they always win, but I know I'll lose

And I'd sing a song, that'd be just ours
But I sang 'em all to another heart
And I wanna cry I wanna learn to love
But all my tears have been used up


On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up

I wanna sing a song, that'd be just ours
But I sang 'em all to another heart
And I wanna cry, I wanna fall in love
But all my tears have been used up

On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
On another love, another love
All my tears have been used up
