Guillemots - Made up love song #43



I love you through sparks and shining dragons, I do,

Now there's poetry, in an empty coke can.

I love you through sparks and shining dragons, I do,

Now there's majesty, in a burnt out caravan.


You got me off the paper round,

just sprang out of the air,

The best things come from nowhere,

I love you, I don't think you care.



I love you through sparks and shining dragons, I do,

And the symmetry in your northern grin.

I love you through sparks and shining dragons, I do,

I can see myself in the refill litter bin.



You got me off the sofa,

just sprang out of the air,

The best things come from nowhere,

I can't believe you care.

The Pretenders - I'll stand by you


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

Tina Turner - The best


I call you when I need you, my hearts on fire
You come to me, come to me, wild and wild

You come to me, give me everything I need
Give me a lifetime of promises and a world of dreams
Speak the language of love like you know what it means
And it can't be wrong, take my heart and make it strong, baby

You're simply the best,
better than all the rest,
better than anyone,
anyone I've ever met!
I'm stuck on your heart,
I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby
I would rather be dead

In your heart I see the start of every night and every day
In your eyes, I get lost, I get washed away
Just as long as I'm here in your arms I could be in no better place...

You're simply the best,
better than all the rest,
better than anyone,
anyone I've ever met!
I'm stuck on your heart,
I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby
I would rather be dead

It's the time you leave me I start losing control,
you're walking away with my heart and my soul,
I can feel you even when I'm alone, oh baby dont let go!

And you're best,
better than all the rest,
better than anyone,
anyone I've ever met!
I'm stuck on your heart,
I hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby
I would rather be dead,
ooh you're the best!

Bishop Allen - Butterfly nets


Calm that wicked wind,
to pick you up and carry you off eastward,
though I did release you
for to seek a warmer sky

Should you be blown back
know that I will always run to greet you,
still surprised to catch you
every time

Armed with this small butterfly net
I will face the world alone
and never be lonely

So calm that wicked wind,
and if you go, you could be gone forever
I will play awhile here
by and by and by and by...

Armed with this small butterfly net
I will face the world alone
and never be lonely

Up and up you go
for to steal the secrets of the heavens
will you share them with me
my bright and brilliant spy?

Should you be blown back
know that I will always run to greet you
still surprised to catch you
every time
still surprised to catch you
by and by and by and by...

John Lennon - Oh my love


Oh my love for the first time in my life,
My eyes are wide open,
Oh my lover for the first time in my life,
My eyes can see

I see the wind,
Oh I see the trees,
Everything is clear in my heart,
I see the clouds,
Oh I see the sky,
Everything is clear in our world

Oh my love for the first time in my life,
My mind is wide open,
oh my lover for the first time in my life,
My mind can feel

I feel the sorrow,
Oh I feel dreams,
Everything is clear in my heart,
Everything is clear in our world,
I feel the life,
Oh I feel love.

The Cure - Mint car


The sun is up
I'm so happy I could scream!
And there's nowhere else in the world I'd rather be
Than here with you
It's perfect
It's all I ever wanted
I almost can't believe that it's for real

I really don't think it gets any better than this
Vanilla smile
And a gorgeous strawberry kiss!
Birds sing we swing
Clouds drift by and everything is like a dream
It's everything I wished

Never guessed it got this good
Wondered if it ever would
Really didn't think it could
Do it again?
I know we should!!!

The sun is up
I'm so fizzy I could burst!
You wet through and me headfirst
Into this is perfect
It's all I ever wanted
Ow! It feels so big it almost hurts!

Never guessed it got this good
Wondered if it ever would
Really didn't think it could
Do it some more?
I know we should!!!

Say it will always be like this
The two of us together
It will always be like this
Forever and ever and ever...

Never guessed it got this good
Wondered if it ever would
Really didn't think it could
Do it all the time?
I know that we should!!!

The Smiths - Nowhere fast


I'd like to drop my trousers to the world
I am a man of means (of slender means)
Each household appliance
Is like a new science in my town

And if the day came when I felt a natural emotion
I'd get such a shock I'd probably jump in the ocean
And when a train goes by It's such a sad sound
No ... It's such a sad thing

I'd like to drop my trousers to the Queen
Every sensible child will know what this means
The poor and the needy
Are selfish and greedy on her terms

And if the day came when I felt a natural emotion
I'd get such a shock I'd probably jump In the ocean
And when a train goes by It's such a sad sound
No ... It's such a sad thing

And when I'm lying in my bed
I think about life And I think about death
And neither one
particularly appeals to me

And if the day came when I felt a natural emotion
I'd get such a shock I'd probably lie
In the middle of the street and die
I'd lie down and die ...

Bob Marley and the Wailers - Satisfy my soul


Oh, please don't you rock my boat
'cause I don't want my boat to be rockin'
Oh, please don't you rock my boat
'cause I don't want my boat to be rockin'

I'm telling you that, oh, oh-ooh, wo-o-wo!
I like it - like it this
So keep it steady, like this.
And you should know - you should know by now:
I like it, I like it like this
I like it like this, ooh yeah!

You satisfy my soul
You satisfy my soul
Every little action
There's a reaction
Oh, can't you see what you've done for me, oh, yeah!
I am happy inside all - all of the time.
When we bend a new corner,
I feel like a sweepstake winner.

When I meet you around the corner
You make me feel like a sweepstake winner
Whoa, child! cant you see? you must believe me!
Oh darling, darling, I'm calling, calling:
Can't you see? why won't you believe me?
Oh, darling, darling, I'm calling, calling

When I meet you around the corner,
Oh, I said, baby, never let me be a loner,
And then you hold me tight, you make me feel all right.
Yes, when you hold me tight, you made me feel all right.
Whoa, honey, can't you see?
don't you believe me?
Oh, darling, darling, Im callin', callin':
Can't you see? why won't you believe me?
Oh, darling, darling, Im callin', callin'.

Satisfy my soul - satisfy my soul -
satisfy my soul - satisfy my soul:
That's all I want you to do, thats all I'll take from you:
Satisfy my soul, satisfy my soul.

John Lennon - Woman


Woman I can hardly express,
My mixed emotion at my thoughtlessness,
After all I'm forever in your debt,
And woman I will try express,
My inner feelings and thankfullness,
For showing me the meaning of succsess,
oooh well, well,
oooh well, well,

Woman I know you understand
The little child inside the man,
Please remember my life is in your hands,
And woman hold me close to your heart,
However, distant don't keep us apart,
After all it is written in the stars,
oooh well, well,
oooh well, well,

Woman please let me explain,
I never meant to cause you sorrow or pain,
So let me tell you again and again and again,
I love you (yeah, yeah) now and forever,
I love you (yeah, yeah) now and forever,
I love you (yeah, yeah) now and forever,
I love you (yeah, yeah)....

Morrissey - Yes, I'm blind


Yes, I am blind
no, I can't see
the good things
just the bad things

Yes, I am blind
no, I can't see
there must be something
horribly wrong with me

God come down
if you're really there
well you're the one
who claims to care


Love's young dream
I'm the one who shopped you
I'm the one who stopped you
'cause in my sorry way I love you

Love's young dream
are you sorry
for what you've done?
well, you're not the only one
and in my sorry way I love you

Yes, I am blind
but I do see
Evil people prosper
over the likes of you and me
ALWAYS

God come down
if you're really there
well you're the one
who claims to care


Little lamb
on a hill
run fast if you can
good Christians
they want to KILL you
and your life has not even begun!
you're just like me
just like me
oh, your life has not even begun
you're just like me
just like me
and your life has not even begun

Charlie Hunter feat. Norah Jones - More than this *


I could feel at the time
There was no way of knowing

Fallen leaves in the night
Who can say where they're blowing

As free as the wind
And hopefully learning
Why the sea on the tide
Has no way of turning

More than this
There is nothing
Oh more than this
You tell me one thing
More than this
You know there's nothing

It was fun for a while
There was no way of knowing
Like a dream in the night
Who can say where we're going

No care in the world
And maybe I'm learning
Why the sea on the tide
It has no way of turning

More than this
You know there is nothing
Oh more than this
You tell me one thing
More than this
There is nothing
Nothing
More than this
You know there is nothing
Much more than this
You tell me one thing
More than this
There is nothing

*Versión original de Roxy Music

The Beatles - It's all too much


When I look into your eyes, your love is there for me
And the more I go inside, the more there is to see

It's all too much for me to take
The love that's shining all around you
Everywhere, it's what you make
For us to take, it's all too much

Floating down the stream of time, of life to life with me
Makes no difference where you are or where you'd like to be

It's all too much for me to take
The love that's shining all around here
All the world is birthday cake,
So take a piece but not too much

Sail me on a silver sun, for I know that I'm free
Show me that I'm everywhere, and get me home for tea

It's all to much for me to see
A love that's shining all around here
The more I am, the less I know
And what I do is all too much

It's all too much for me to take
The love that's shining all around you
Everywhere, it's what you make
For us to take, it's all too much

It's too much.....It's too much

The Smiths - Hand in glove


Hand in glove
the sun shines out of our behinds
No, it's not like any other love
this one is different because is us

Hand in glove
we can go wherever we please
and everything depends upon
how near you stand to me

And if the people stare
then, the people stare
I really don't know
and i really don't care!

Hand in glove
the Good People laugh
Yes, we may be hidden by "rags"
but we have something they'll never have

And if the people stare
then, the people stare
I really don't know
and I really don't care!

So hand in glove I stake my claim
I'll fight to the last breath
If they dare touch a hair on your head
I'll fight to the last breath
For The Good Life is out there, somewhere
So stay on my arm, you little charmer
But I know my luck too well
yes, I know my luck too well
and I'll probably never see you again
I'll probably never see you again

Mercedes Sosa - Soy pan, soy paz, soy más


Yo soy, yo soy, yo soy
soy agua, playa, cielo, casa, planta,
soy mar, Atlántico, viento y América,
soy un montón de cosas santas
mezcladas con cosas humanas
como te explico . . . cosas mundanas.

Fui niño, cuna, teta, techo, manta,
más miedo, cuco, grito, llanto, raza,
después mezclaron las palabras
o se escapaban las miradas
algo pasó . . . no entendí nada.

Vamos, decime, contame
todo lo que a vos te está pasando ahora,
porque sino cuando está el alma sola llora
Hay que sacarlo todo afuera, como la primavera
nadie quiere que adentro algo se muera
Hablar mirándose a los ojos,
sacar lo que se puede afuera
para que adentro nazcan cosas nuevas.

Soy pan, soy paz, sos más, soy el que está por acá
no quiero más de lo que me puedas dar,
hoy se te da, hoy se te quita,
igual que con la margarita . . . igual al mar,
igual la vida...

Vamos, decime, contame
todo lo que a vos te está pasando ahora,
porque sino cuando está el alma sóla llora
hay que sacarlo todo afuera, como la primavera
nadie quiere que adentro algo se muera
hablar mirándose a los ojos
sacar lo que se puede afuera
para que adentro nazcan cosas nuevas.

Morrissey - Such a little thing makes such a big difference


Such a little thing
such a little thing
but the difference it made was great

There you go
wielding a bicycle chain
why won't you change?
change and be nice?

Such a little thing
a genlte 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
oh, the difference, it saved me

Wielding a bicycle chain
why won't you change?
I will not change and I will not be nice!

Most people 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

You have proved again
most people keep their brains between their legs.

Ludus - Sightseeing


When I can see through you
what can I see?
can I see me?
does my objectivity
allow me access to your points of view?
can you see what
I see in you?

You can see what I see in you
you can see what I see in you

You can't feel what I feel
you can't feel what I feel

The Beatles - Getting Better


It's getting better all the time
I used to get mad at my school
The teachers who taught me weren't cool
You're holding me down, turning me round
Filling me up with your rules.

I've got to admit it's getting better
A little better all the time
I have to admit it's getting better
It's getting better since you've been mine.

Me used to be a angry young man
Me hiding me head in the sand
You gave me the word
I finally heard
I'm doing the best that I can.

I've got to admit it's getting better
A little better all the time
I have to admit its getting better since you've been mine
Getting so much better all the time
It's getting better all the time

I used to be cruel to my woman
I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved
Man I was mean but I'm changing my scene
And I'm doing the best that I can.

I admit it's getting better
A little better all the time
Yes I admit it's getting better
It's getting better since you've been mine
Getting so much better all the time
Its getting better all the time
Getting so much better all the time

Los Abuelos de la Nada - Sin gamulán


Tanto tiempo te esperé
sentado aquí
que ya el invierno me alcanzó
sin gamulán.

Será por eso que hoy estamos aquí
no hay nadie más
que vos y yo,
será por eso que hoy estamos aquí
no hay nadie más
que vos y yo.

Tantas veces lo soñé
como real
que quiso el tiempo
y quiso nada más.

Será por eso que hoy estamos aquí
no hay nadie más
que vos y yo,
será por eso que hoy estamos aquí
no hay nadie más
que vos y yo.

Me habrás dejado
resulta extraño
porque a mi lado
no has estado jamás.

Será por eso que hoy estamos aquí
no hay nadie más
que vos y yo,
será por eso que hoy estamos aquí
no hay nadie más
que vos y yo.

Bob Dylan - Spanish Harlem Incident


Ahora sí...


Gypsy gal, the hands of Harlem
Cannot hold you to its heat.
Your temperature's too hot for taming,
Your flaming feet are burnin' up the street.
I am homeless, come and take me
To the reach of your rattling drums.
Let me know, babe, all about my fortune
Down along my restless palms.

Gypsy gal, you got me swallowed,
I have fallen far beneath
Your pearly eyes, so fast an' slashing,
An' your flashing diamond teeth.
The night is pitch black, come an' make my
Pale face fit in the place, ah, please!
Let me know, babe, I'm nearly drowning,
If it's you my lifelines trace.

I been wond'rin' all about me
Ever since I seen you there.
On the cliffs of your wildcat charms I'm riding,
I know I'm 'round you but I don't know when.
You have slayed me, you have made me,
I got to laugh halfways off my heels.
I got to know, babe, will you surround me
So I can know if I'm really real.

Paul McCartney - At the mercy


At the mercy
At the mercy
At the mercy of a busy road
Who can handle such a heavy load?

At the mercy
At the mercy
At the mercy of a busy day
We can think of nothing more to say

If you show me love
I wont refuse
I know you'd never make me choose
Between the love I got
And the love I'd lose

Sometimes I'd rather run and hide
Than stay and face the fear inside

At the mercy
At the mercy
At the mercy of a busy day
Who can bare to turn their head away?

At the mercy
At the mercy
At the mercy of a busy road
We can watch the universe explode

If you take me up
I wont say no
I guess you'd rather see me grow
Into a better man
Than the one you know

Sometimes my head is hanging low
It's time to get on with the show

At the mercy
At the mercy
At the mercy of a busy day
I can think of nothing more to say

Blur - Beetlebum


Beetlebum
What you done
She's a gun
Now what you've done
Beetlebum

Get nothing done
You beetlebum
Just get numb
Now what you've done
Beetlebum

And when she lets me slip away
She turns me on
all my violence is gone
Nothing is wrong, I just slip away and I am gone
Nothing is wrong, she turns me on
Beetlebum

Because you're young
She's a gun
Now what you've done
Beetlebum
She'll suck your thumb
She'll make you come
Coz, she's your gun
Now what you've done
Beetlebum

He's on, he's on, he's on it

The Cure - Catch

Yeah I know who you remind me of
A girl I think I used to know
Yeah I'd see her when the days got colder
On those days when it felt like snow

You know I even think that she stared like you
She used to just stand there and stare
And roll her eyes right up to heaven
And make like I just wasn't there

And she used to fall down a lot
That girl was always falling
Again and again
And I used to sometimes try to catch her
But never even caught her name

And sometimes we would spend the night
Just rolling about on the floor
And I remember even though it felt soft at the time
I always used to wake up sore...

You know I even think that she smiled like you
She used to just stand there and smile
And her eyes would go all sort of far away
And stay like that for quite a while

And I remember she used to fall down a lot
That girl was always falling
Again and again
And I used to sometimes try to catch her
But never even caught her name

Yeah I sometimes even tried to catch her
But never even caught her name

Joy Division - Love will tear us apart


When the routine bites hard
And ambitions are low
And the resentment rides high
But emotions won't grow
And we're changing our ways,
Taking different roads
Then love, love will tear us apart again

Why is the bedroom so cold
Turned away on your side?
Is my timing that flawed,
Our respect run so dry?
Yet there's still this appeal
That we've kept through our lives
Love, love will tear us apart again

Do you cry out in your sleep
All my failings expose?
Get a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold
Is it something so good
Just can't function no more?
When love, love will tear us apart again

Coiffeur - Qué mala suerte


Sigo buscando la voz
que me hable de vos
de nuevas maneras,
el olor del pasto recien cortado,
alguna larga espera.

Ahí va tu imagen
que habla más de mí,
un holograma con movimiento,
lo que se ve y lo que dejo entrever
ahora lo entiendo.

Al menos eso creo.

Quiero volver a callar
aquella palabra que nunca mencionamos
sería inevitable repetir la misma escena
una y otra vez.

Tal vez sea cierto,
lo que queremos no es lo que hacemos,
lo que buscamos esconde un defecto,
es la manera en la que construimos.

El momento, la acción, el movimiento,
recuerdo, ya estuve llorando por esto.

Tal vez sea cierto,
lo que queremos no es lo que hacemos,
lo que buscamos esconde un defecto,
es la manera en la que construimos.

El momento, la acción, el movimiento,
a vos que te parece,
qué pensás al respecto.
Mejor no me lo digas,
guardemos secretos
tengo una lista de películas
que quiero ver.

Coincidimos y no es casualidad,
qué mala suerte,
no es casualidad.

Coincidimos y no es casualidad,
qué mala suerte,
no es casualidad.

Tal vez sea cierto,
lo que queremos no es lo que hacemos,
lo que buscamos esconde un defecto,
es la manera en la que construimos.

El momento, la acción, el movimiento,
a vos que te parece,
qué pensás al respecto.
Mejor no me lo digas,
guardemos secretos
tengo una lista de películas
que quiero ver.

Coincidimos y no es casualidad,
qué mala suerte,
no es casualidad.

Bob Dylan - Queen Jane Approximately


When your mother sends back all your invitations
And your father to your sister he explains
That you're tired of yourself and all of your creations
Won't you come see me, Queen Jane?
Won't you come see me, Queen Jane?

Now when all of the flower ladies want back what they have lent you
And the smell of their roses does not remain
And all of your children start to resent you
Won't you come see me, Queen Jane?
Won't you come see me, Queen Jane?

Now when all the clowns that you have commissioned
Have died in battle or in vain
And you're sick of all this repetition
Won't you come see me, Queen Jane?
Won't you come see me, Queen Jane?

When all of your advisers heave their plastic
At your feet to convince you of your pain
Trying to prove that your conclusions should be more drastic
Won't you come see me, Queen Jane?
Won't you come see me, Queen Jane?

Now when all the bandits that you turned your other cheek to
All lay down their bandanas and complain
And you want somebody you don't have to speak to
Won't you come see me, Queen Jane?
Won't you come see me, Queen Jane?

The Smiths - I won't share you


I won't share you
I won't share you
with the drive, the ambition
the zeal I feel
this is my time

The note I wrote
was as she read,
she said has the Perrier gone straight to my head
or is life plainly sick and cruel, instead?
"YES!" No-no-no-no-no-no no-no-no-no-no-no

I won't share you
I won't share you
with the drive and the dreams inside
this is my time

Life tends to come and go
well, that's OK just as long as you know
Life tends to come and go
well, that's OK just as long as you know.

I won't share you
I won't share you
with the drive and the dreams inside
this is my time
this is my time

I want the freedom and I want the guile
I want the freedom and the guile
Life tends to come and go
As long as you know

I won't share you
I won't share you
I'll see you somewhere
I'll see you sometime...

Bob Dylan - It ain't me, babe


Go 'way from my window,
Leave at your own chosen speed.
I'm not the one you want, babe,
I'm not the one you need.
You say you're lookin' for someone
Never weak but always strong,
To protect you an' defend you
Whether you are right or wrong,
Someone to open each and every door,
But it ain't me, babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe,
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.
Go lightly from the ledge, babe,
Go lightly on the ground.
I'm not the one you want, babe,
I will only let you down.
You say you're lookin' for someone
Who will promise never to part,
Someone to close his eyes for you,
Someone to close his heart,
Someone who will die for you an' more,
But it ain't me, babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe,
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.

Go melt back into the night, babe,
Everything inside is made of stone.
There's nothing in here moving
An' anyway I'm not alone.
You say you're looking for someone
Who'll pick you up each time you fall,
To gather flowers constantly
An' to come each time you call,
A lover for your life an' nothing more,
But it ain't me, babe,
No, no, no, it ain't me, babe,
It ain't me you're lookin' for, babe.


-como una vez le dí gracias a los Beatles, hoy te doy gracias a vos, Bob-

The Beatles - I want to tell you


I want to tell you
My head is filled with things to say
When you're here
All those words, they seem to slip away

When I get near you
The games begin to drag me down
It's all right
Ill make you maybe next time around

But if I seem to act unkind
It isn't me, its just my mind
That is confusing things

I want to tell you
I feel hung up and I don't know why
But I dont mind
I could wait forever, I've got time

Sometimes I wish I knew you well
Then I could speak my mind and tell you
Maybe you'd understand

I want to tell you
I feel hung up and I don't know why
I don't mind
I could wait forever, I've got time

I've got time

Led Zeppelin - Tangerine


Measuring a summers day,
I only finds it slips away to grey,
The hours, they bring me pain.

Tangerine, Tangerine,
Living reflection from a dream;
I was her love, she was my queen,
And now a thousand years between.

Thinking how it used to be,
Does she still remember times like these?
To think of us again?
And I do.

Bob Dylan - Fourth time around


When she said,"Don't waste
your words, they're just lies,"
I cried she was deaf.
And she worked on my face
until breaking my eyes,
Then said, "What else you got left?"
It was then that I got up to leave
But she said, "Don't forget,
Everybody must give something back
For something they get."

I stood there and hummed,
I tapped on her drum and asked her how come.
And she buttoned her boot,
And straightened her suit,
Then she said, "Don't get cute."
So I forced my hands in my pockets
And felt with my thumbs,
And gallantly handed her
My very last piece of gum.

She threw me outside,
I stood in the dirt where ev'ryone walked.
And after finding I'd
Forgotten my shirt,
I went back and knocked.
I waited in the hallway, she went to get it,
And I tried to make sense
Out of that picture of you in your wheelchair
That leaned up against . . .

Her Jamaican rum
And when she did come, I asked her for some.
She said, "No, dear."
I said, "Your words aren't clear,
You'd better spit out your gum".
She screamed till her face got so red
Then she fell on the floor,
And I covered her up and then
Thought I'd go look through her drawer.

And, when I was through
I filled up my shoe
And brought it to you.
And you, you took me in,
You loved me then
You didn't waste time.
And I, I never took much,
I never asked for your crutch.
Now don't ask for mine.

Vanilla Fudge - You keep me hangin' on


Set me free, why don't you babe?
Get out my life, why don't you babe? Oooh
You really don't want me, you just keep me hangin' on
You really don't need me, you just keep me hangin' on
Why do you keep comin' around playin' with my heart?
Why don't you get out of my life
And let me try to make a new start?
Let me get over you the way you've gotten over me
Set me free, why don't you babe?
Get out my life, why don't you now? Oooh
You really don't want me, you just keep me hangin' on
You really don't need me, you just keep me hangin' on
You said when we broke up you just wanna be friends
But how can we still be friends
When seein' you only breaks my heart again?
There ain't nothin' I can do about it

You know I really love
- set me free, why don't you babe? -
Talkin' 'bout love
- get out my life, why don't you babe? Oooh -
You really don't want me, you just keep me hangin' on
You really don't need me, you just keep me hangin' on
Get out my life, why don't you babe? Oooh

Invisible - Irregular

Mientras la ciudad calla o prosigue
Aún en el corazón de la urbe
Se escucha el clamor de un grito de inocencia
No hay nada
ni nadie que comprenda
Y entre los telones de esta farsa
Se sacude ansioso el Misterio Eterno
De aquellas venas sangraba Dios
(Dios y su troupe)

Su cabeza cayó de rodillas
Y su vientre rodó por entre el tráfico
(Que es irregular)

The Beatles - If I needed someone


If I needed someone to love
You're the one that I'd be thinking of

If I needed someone

If I had some more time to spend
Then I guess I'd be with you my friend

If I needed someone

Had you come some other day

Then it might not have been like this

But you see now I'm too much in love

Carve your number on my wall

And maybe you will get a call from me

If I needed someone


If I had some more time to spend

Then I guess I'd be with you my friend

If I needed someone

Had you come some other day
Then it might not have been like this

But you see now I'm too much in love

Carve your number on my wall
And maybe you will get a call from me

If I needed someone

Charly García - Víctima


Víctima de soledad
víctima de un mal extraño
mi corazón se ha partido en dos.
¿Quién te ha visto y quién te ve?
Quién te ama te hace daño
mi corazón se ha partido en dos
veo esa sangre en la pared
iluminó mi ser
algo va a caer
veo tu sombra y ya no sé
ya no sé qué hacer
algo va a caer

Víctima de libertad
víctima de un sol extraño
¡Oh!
Mi corazón se ha partido en dos
cuando todos van a ver
cuando va a nacer
todo va a caer
tengo que salir y volver
desaparecer
y alguien va a caer
víctima de libertad
víctima de soledad...

Supertramp - Hide in your shell


Hide in your shell
'cause the world is out to bleed you for a ride
What will you gain making your life a little longer?
Heaven or Hell,
was the journey cold that gave you eyes of steel?
Sheltered behind, painting your mind and playing joker

Too frightening to listen to a stranger
Too beautiful to put your pride in danger
You're waiting for someone to understand you
But you've got demons in your closet
And you're screaming out to stop it
Saying life's begun to cheat you
Friends are out to beat you
Grab on to what you scramble for

Don't let the tears linger on inside now
'cause it's sure time you gained control
If I can help you, if I can help you
If I can help you, just let me know
Well, let me show you the nearest signpost
To get your heart back up on the road
If I can help you, if I can help you
If I can help you, just let me know

All through the night, as you lie awake and hold yourself so tight
What do you need, a second-hand-movie-star to tend you?
I as a boy, I believed the saying the cure for pain was love
How would it be if you could see the world through my eyes?

Too frightening the fire's becoming colder
Too beautiful to think you're getting older
You're looking for someone to give an answer
But what you see is just illusion
You're surrounded by confusion
Saying life's begun to cheat you
Friends are out to beat you
Grab on to what you can scramble for

Don't let the tears linger on inside now
Cause it's sure time you gained control
If I can help you, if I can help you
If I can help you, just let me know
Well, let me show you the nearest signpost
To get your heart back up on the road
If I can help you, if I can help you
If I can help you, just let me know

I wanna know...
I wanna know...
I wanna know you...
I've got to know you
Well let me know you

I wanna feel you
Oh I wanna touch you
Please let me near you, let me near you
Can you hear what I'm saying?
Well I'm hoping, I'm dreamin', I'm prayin'
I know what you're thinkin'
See what you're seein'
Never ever let yourself go
Hold yourself down, hold yourself down
Why dont ya hold yourself down?
Why don't you listen, you can
Trust me, Oh there's a place I know the way to
A place there is no need to, to feel you
To feel that you're all alone

Hear me
I know exactly what you're feelin'
'cause all your troubles are within you
so begin to see that I'm just bleeding to
Oh Love me, love you
Loving is the way to Help me, help you
- Why must we be so cool, oh so cool?
Oh, we're such damn fools...

The Smiths - Still ill


I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving
England is mine and it owes me a living
But ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
but we cannot cling
to the old dreams anymore
no, we cannot cling to those dreams.
Does the body rule the mind
or does the mind rule the body?
I dunno...

Under the iron bridge we kissed
and although I ended up with sore lips
it just wasn't like
the old days anymore
no, it wasn't like those days
Am I still ill?
Oh no...
Am I still ill?
Oh no...

Does the body rule the mind
or does the mind rule the body?
I dunno...
Ask me why and I'll die
ask me why and I'll die

And if you must go to work tomorrow
well if I were you I wouldn't bother
for there are brighter sides to life
and I should know because I've seen them
but not very often .

Under the iron bridge we kissed
and although I ended up with sore lips
it just wasn't like
the old days anymore
no it wasn't like those days
Am I still ill?
Oh no...
Am I still ill?
Oh no...

The Pretenders - I go to sleep


When I look up from my pillow
I dream you are there with me
Though you are far away
I know you'll always be near to me

I go to sleep, sleep
And imagine that you're there with me
I go to sleep, sleep
And imagine that you're there with me

I look around me
And feel you are ever so close to me
Each tear that flows from my eye
Brings back memories of you to me

I go to sleep, sleep
And imagine that you're there with me
I go to sleep, sleep
And imagine that you're there with me

I was wrong, I will cry
I will love you till the day I die
You were all, you alone and no one else
You were meant for me

When morning comes again
I have the loneliness you left me
Each day drags by
Until finally my time descends on me

I go to sleep, sleep
And imagine that you're there with me
I go to sleep, sleep
And imagine that you're there with me

Morrissey - I know it's gonna happen someday

My love, wherever you are

whatever you are
don't lose faith
I know it's gonna happen someday
to you
Please wait
please wait
wait
don't lose faith
You say that the day just never arrives
and it's never seemed so far away
still, I know it's gonna happen someday
to you
Please wait
don't lose faith.

The Beach Boys - I just wasn´t made for these times

I keep looking for a place to fit

Where i can speak my mind
I've been trying hard to find the people
That i won't leave behind

They say i got brains
But they ain't doing me no good
I wish they could

Each time things start to happen again
I think i got something good goin' for myself
But what goes wrong
.
Sometimes i feel very sad
Sometimes i feel very sad
(can't find nothin' i can put my heart and soul into)
Sometimes i feel very sad
(can't find nothin' i can put my heart and soul into)
I guess i just wasn't made for these times
.
Every time i get the inspiration
To go change things around
No one wants to help me look for places
Where new things might be found
.
Where can i turn when my fair weather friends cop out
What's it all about
.
Each time things start to happen again
I think i got something good goin' for myself
But what goes wrong
.
Sometimes i feel very sad
Sometimes i feel very sad
(can't find nothin' i can put my heart and soul into)
Sometimes i feel very sad
(can't find nothin' i can put my heart and soul into)
.
I guess i just wasn't made for these times
I guess i just wasn't made for these times

New Order - Thieves Like Us / The Perfect Kiss

Thieves Like Us
.
I've watched your face for a long time
It's always the same
I've studied the cracks and the wrinkles
You were always so vain
Well, now you live your life like a shadow
In the pouring rain
.
Oh, it's called love
Yes, it's called love
Oh, it's called love
And it belongs to us
Oh, it dies so quickly
It grows so slowly
But when it dies, it dies for good
It's called love
And it belongs to everyone but us
.
I've lived my life in the valleys
I've lived my life on the hills
I've lived my life on alcohol
I've lived my life on pills
.
But it's called love
And it belongs to us
It's called love
And it's the only thing that's worth living for
It's called love
And it belongs to us
It's called love
Yes it's called love
.
Oh, love is found in the east and west
But when love is at home, it's the best
Love is the cure for every evil
Love is the air that supports the eagle
.
It's called love
And it's so un-cool
It's called love
And somehow it's become unmentionable
It's called love
And it belongs to every one of us
It's called love
And it cuts your life like a broken knife
.
.
The Perfect Kiss
.
I stood there beside myself,
Thinking hard about the weather
Then came by a friend of mine
Suggested we go out together
Then I knew it from the start:
This friend of mine would fall apart
Pretending not to see his guilt,
I said "let's go out and have some fun"
I know, you know, you believe in a land of love
I know, you know, we believe in a land of love
.
I have always thought about
Staying here and going out
Tonight I should have stayed at home,
Playing with my pleasure zone
He has always been so strange,
I'd often thought he was deranged
Pretending not to see his gun,
I said "let's go out and have some fun"
I know, you know, we believe in a land of love
I know, you know, we believe in a land of love
.
When you are alone at night
You search yourself for all the things
That you believe are right
If you give it all away
You throw away your only chance to be here today
Then a fight breaks out on your street
You lose another broken heart in a land of meat
My friend, he took his final breath
Now I know the perfect kiss is the kiss of death

John Lennon - (Just like) Starting Over


Our life together is so precious together
We have grown, we have grown
Although our love is still special
Let's take a chance and fly away somewhere alone

It's been too long since we took the time
No-one's to blame, I know time flies so quickly
But when I see you darling
It's like we both are falling in love again
It'll be just like starting over, starting over

Everyday we used to make it love
Why can't we be making love nice and easy
It's time to spread our wings and fly
Don't let another day go by my love
It'll be just like starting over, starting over

Why don't we take off alone
Take a trip somewhere far, far away
We'll be together all alone again
Like we used to in the early days
Well, well, well darling

It's been too long since we took the time
No-one's to blame, I know time flies so quickly
But when I see you darling
It's like we both are falling in love again
It'll be just like starting over, starting over

Our life together is so precious together
We have grown, we have grown
Although our love is still special
Let's take a chance and fly away somewhere

Starting over

Pink Floyd - Us and them

Us, and them
And after all we're only ordinary men.
Me, and you.
God only knows it's not what we would choose to do.
Forward he cried from the rear
and the front rank died.
And the general sat and the lines on the map
moved from side to side.

Black and blue
And who knows which is which and who is who.
Up and down.
But in the end it's only round and round.
Haven't you heard it's a battle of words
The poster bearer cried.
Listen son, said the man with the gun
There's room for you inside.

Down and out
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about.
With, without.
And who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about?
Out of the way, it's a busy day
I've got things on my mind.
For the want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died.

Bob Dylan - My Back Pages

Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin' high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
"We'll meet on edges, soon," said I
Proud 'neath heated brow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
"Rip down all hate," I screamed
Lies that life is black and white
Spoke from my skull. I dreamed
Romantic facts of musketeers
Foundationed deep, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Girls' faces formed the forward path
From phony jealousy
To memorizing politics
Of ancient history
Flung down by corpse evangelists
Unthought of, though, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

A self-ordained professor's tongue
Too serious to fool
Spouted out that liberty
Is just equality in school
"Equality," I spoke the word
As if a wedding vow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
younger than that now.

In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand
At the mongrel dogs who teach
Fearing not that I'd become my enemy
In the instant that I preach
My pathway led by confusion boats
Mutiny from stern to bow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats
Too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking
I had something to protect
Good and bad, I define these terms
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

The Smiths - The boy with the thorn in his side

The boy with the thorn in his side
behind the hatred there lies
a murderous desire
for love

How can they look into my eyes
and still they don't believe me?
How can they hear me say those words
and still they don't believe me?
And if they don't believe me now
will they ever believe me?
And if they don't believe me now
will they ever will they ever believe me?

The boy with the thorn in his side
behind the hatred there lies
a plundering desire
for love

How can they see the Love in our eyes
and still they don't believe us?
And after all this time
they don't want to believe us
and if they don't believe us now
will they ever believe us?
And when you want to Live
how do you start?
Where do you go?
Who do you need to know?

The Beatles - There's a place

There is a place
where I can go
when I feel low,
when I feel blue.

And it's my mind,
and there's no time
when I'm alone.

I think of you,
and things you do
go 'round my head,
the things you said.
Like "I love
only you."

In my mind there's no sorrow,
Don't you know that it's so?
There'll be no sad tomorrow,
Don't you know that it's so?

There is a place
where I can go
when I feel low,
when I feel blue.

And it's my mind,
and there's no time
when I'm alone.

There's a place...

Este es un pequeño infrablog vergonzante.
¿Por qué vergonzante?
Porque aquí voy a desarrollar un placer culpable: transcribir letras de canciones o pedazos de las mismas que sean significativas para mí por h o por b, y que tal vez representen algo que me sucede o sucedió. Sin más que eso. No pretendo que las lean. No pretendo nada.

Es sólo para sacarme las ganas.
