Communicate

For 27 years I’ve been trying
to believe and confide in
different people I found.
Some of them got closer than others,
some wouldn’t even bother
and then you came around.I didn’t really know what to call you
you didn’t know me at all,
but I was happy to explain.
I never really knew how to move you,
so I tried to intrude through
the little holes in your veins.
And I saw you,
but that’s not an invitation

That’s all I get
if this is communication
I disconnect.
I’ve seen you, I know you but I don’t know
how to connect,
so I disconnect.

You always seemed to know where to find me
and i’m still here behind you,
in the corner of your eye.

I never really learned how to love you
But I know that I love you
through the hole in the sky
where I see you,
‘n that’s not an invitation

That’s all i get
if this is communication
I disconnect.
I’ve seen you, I know you but I don’t know
how to connect,
so I disconnect

Well, this is an invitation,
it’s not a threat.
If you want communication
that’s what you’ll get.
I’m talking and talking,
but I don’t how to connect
and I hold the record for being patient
with your kind of hesitation.

I need you, you want me, but I don’t know
how to connect,
so I disconnect.
I disconnect…

Some Other Time

In a matter of a moment,
lost till the end of time,
it’s the evening of another day
and the end of mine

Now the starlight which has found me,
lost for a million years,
tries to linger as it fills my eyes,
till it disappears

Could it be that somebody else is
looking into my mind

Some other place
Somewhere
Some other time

Some other place
Somewhere
Some other time

Like a mirror held before me,
large as the sky is wide
and the image is reflected
back to the other side

Could it be that somebody else is
looking into my mind

Some other place
Somewhere
Some other time

Some other place
Somewhere
Some other time

Some Other Time by The Alan Parsons Project

Everything

Now I believe that what I used to think was a lie,
is really alive.
Now I can see there’s only one place to reach,
only one thing to preach and that’s the highest.
It’s the strangest thing that I can feel so much.

There is no reason, there is no logic to feelings,
’cause when love is the dealer I’m addicted.
So fascinated, I can’t stop this constant craving,
you’re contagious.

It’s the strangest thing that I can feel so much
for someone, somehow.
It’s the strangest thing that I can feel so much
for someone, somehow.

And I cannot hide, even if I’d try.
You mean everything to me.
Any fool can see, what you’ve done to me.
You mean everything to me.
And when you’re not here, I just cry.
And when you’re not here, I could die.

The best is still to come dear.
The best is still to come for us.
The best is still to come dear.
The best is still to come.

It’s the strangest thing that I can feel so much
for someone, somehow.
It’s the strangest thing that I can feel so much
for someone, somehow.

And I cannot hide, even if I’d try.
You mean everything to me.
Any fool can see, what you’ve done to me.
You mean everything to me.
And when you’re not here, I just cry.
And when you’re not here, I could die.

I could die, I could die, I could die.

And I cannot hide, even if I’d try.

Everything by Anouk

Round here

Step out the front door like a ghost into the fog,
where no one notices the contrast of white on white.
And in between the moon and you, the angels get a better view.
Of the crumbling difference between wrong and right.
I walk in the air between the rain through myself and back again.
Where? I don’t know.
Maria says she’s dying, through the door I hear her crying.
Why? I don’t know.

Round here we always stand up straight,
round here something radiates.

Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand.
She said shed like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis.
She walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land.
Just like she’s walking on a wire in the circus.
She parks her car outside of my house,
takes her clothes off,
says she’s close to understanding Jesus.
She knows she’s more than just a little misunderstood,
she has trouble acting normal when she’s nervous.

Round here were carving out our names,
round here we all look the same.
Round here we talk just like lions,
but we sacrifice like lambs.
Round here she’s slipping through my hands.

Sleeping children better run like the wind,
out of the lightning dream.
Mama’s little baby better get herself in,
out of the lightning.

She says it’s only in my head.
She says “shhh, I know, it’s only in my head,”
But the girl on car in the parking lot says
“man you should try to take a shot,
can’t you see my walls are crumbling?”
Then she looks up at the building and says she’s thinking of jumping.
She says shes tired of life, she must be tired of something.

Round here she’s always on my mind,
round here, hey man got lots of time.
Round here we’re never sent to bed early
and nobody makes us wait.
Round here we stay up very, very, very, very late.
I can’t see nothing, nothing round here.
Catch me if I’m falling…

Round Here by the Counting Crows

Weak

Lost in time, I can’t count the words
I said when I thought they went unheard.
All of those harsh thoughts so unkind,
cos I wanted you.

And now I sit here, I’m all alone.
So here sits a bloody mess, tears fly home.
A circle of angels, deep in war,
cos I wanted you

Weak as I am, no tears for you.
Weak as I am, no tears for you.
Deep as I am, I’m no-one’s fool.
Weak as I am.

So what am I now, I’m love last home,
I’m all of the soft words I once owned.
If I opened my heart, there’d be no space for air,
cos I wanted you

Weak as I am, no tears for you.
Weak as I am, no tears for you.
Deep as I am, I’m no-one’s fool.
Weak as I am.

In this tainted soul,
in this weak young heart,
am I too much for you?

In this tainted soul,
in this weak young heart,
am I too much for you?

In this tainted soul,
in this weak young heart,
am I too much for you?

Weak as I am,
weak as I am,
weak as I am,
weak as I am, am, am.

Weak as I am,
am I too much for you?
Weak as I am,
am I too much for you?
Weak as I am,
am I too much for you?
Weak as I am,
am I too much for you?
Weak as I am.

Weak by Skunk Anansie

World

Got a package full of wishes:
a time machine, a magic wand,
a globe made out of gold.

No instructions or commandments,
laws of gravity or
indecisions to uphold.

Printed on the box I see
A.C.M.E.’s Build-a-World-to-Be.
Take a chance – grab a piece,
help me to believe it.

What kind of world do you want?
Think anything,
let’s start at the start.
Build a masterpiece.
Be careful what you wish for.
History starts now…

Should there be people or peoples?
Money, funny pedestals for fools who never pay.
Raise your army – choose your steeple.
Don’t be shy, the satellites can look the other way.

Lose the earthquakes – keep the faults.
Fill the oceans without the salt.
Let every Man own his own hand.

What kind of world do you want?
Think anything,
let’s start at the start.
Build a masterpiece.
Be careful what you wish for.
History starts now…

Sunlight’s on the bridge,
sunlight’s on the way,
tomorrow’s calling.

There’s more to this than love.

What kind of world do you want?
What kind of world do you want?

What kind of world do you want?
Think anything,
let’s start at the start.
Build a masterpiece.

History starts now.

Be careful what you wish for.
Start now…

Pray Nightfall

In my head this all is in my head this all is
in my head this all is in my head this all is
in my head…

I hold on tight for this mortal ride
rest my head ’til the morning’s coming down on me
I realise my own sacrifice
better rest my head before somebody’s going out…

In my head this all is in my head this all is
in my head this all is in my head this all is
in my head…

Pray nightfall release me
then I could wander, wander to deep sleep

Awake despite, another mortal night
Rest my head, for the sun is shining down on me
I realise, try to synchronize
Rest my head or somebody’s going down

In my head this all is in my head this all is
in my head this all is in my head this all is
in my head…

Pray nightfall release me
then I could wander, wander to deep sleep

Trying to make things work,
trying to make things right
Trying to make things work
without serendipity in my life…

Pray Nightfall by Paradise Lost

The beauty song – 佳人曲

The movie ‘House of Flying Daggers (十面埋伏)’ contains a song sung by Zhang Ziyi (章子怡) called ‘The Beauty Song (佳人曲)’.

北方有佳人,绝世而独立。
一顾倾人城,在顾倾人国。
宁不知倾城与倾国。
佳人难再得。

Which translates to something like the following:

In the north there is a beauty: Surpassing the world, she stands alone.
A glance from her will overthrow a city; A second glance will overthrow the State.
Don’t I know she can overthrow the city and the State?
But such a beauty cannot be found again!

This is a poem by the Han Dynasty poet Li Yannian (李延年).

Dissolved Girl

Shame,
such a shame,
I think I kind of lost myself again. Day,
yesterday,
really should be leaving but I stay.

Say,
say my name,
I need a little love to ease the pain.

It’s easy to remember when it came,
‘cos it feels like I’ve been,
I’ve been here before.
And you’re not my savior,
but I still don’t go.
Feels like something that I’ve done before.
I could fake it but I still want more.

Fade,
made to fade,
passion’s overrated anyway.

Say,
say my name,
I need a little love to ease the pain.

It’s easy to remember when it came,
‘cos it feels like I’ve been,
I’ve been here before.
And you’re not my savior,
but I still don’t go.
Feels like something that I’ve done before.
I could fake it but I still want more.

— Dissolved Girl by Massive Attack

Empty Skies

Look in my eyes,
shocked with terror.
Paralyze ‘n’,
pull me over.
I’m so dumb,
and you’re so clever.
Scrutinize,
my best endeavour.
Come the day,
when I will leave,
at my Pride,
you will be.

Empty skies but a butterfly’s wings beat silent like air,
call us free by a promise torn, you said “I’ll meet you there.”
Empty skies but a butterfly’s wings beat silent like air,
call us free by a promise torn, you said “I’ll meet you there.”
Meet you there,
you know I’m there.

I left the sun in Africa
to be with you, to fly
cross the oceans
licking flame
every movement
speaks your name.
come the day
when i will leave
at my Pride
you will be

Empty skies but a butterfly’s wings beat silent like air,
call us free by a promise torn, you said “I’ll meet you there.”
Empty skies but a butterfly’s wings beat silent like air,
call us free by a promise torn, you said “I’ll meet you there.”
meet you there,
you know I’m there.

Empty skies but a butterfly’s wings beat silent like air,
call us free by a promise torn, you said “I’ll meet you there.”
Empty skies but a butterfly’s wings beat silent like air,
call us free by a promise torn, you said “I’ll meet you there.”
meet you there,
you know I’m there.
