Lost Without You

i was lost and nothing made any sense
i was tied to the fence
and i seen you
like a flower trying to grow
but still i don’t know
what really i should show oh, no

but i’m lost without you
yes, i’m lost without you
is there a cost attached to you

take your time
please don’t think too much
because i think too much
and it kills me like a needle to my bones
everybody knows, everybody knows, oh no

but i’m lost without you
yes i’m lost without you
is there a cost attached to you

yes i’m lost without you
yes i’m lost without you

Nick Cave

Far From Me

for you dear, i was born
for you i was raised up
for you i've lived and for you i will die
for you i am dying now
you were my mad little lover
in a world where everybody fucks everybody else over
you who are so far from me
far from me
so far from me
way across some cold neurotic sea
far from me

you told me you'd stick by me
through the thick and through the thin
those were your very words
my fair-weather friend
you were my brave-hearted lover
at the first taste of trouble went running back to mother
so far from me
far from me
suspended in your bleak and fishless sea
far from me
far from me

Nina Simone

If You Knew

If you knew how I missed you
You would not stay away today
Don't you know I need you
Stay here my dear with me

I need you here my darling
Together for a day a day
Together never parting
Just you just me my love

I can't go on without you
Your love is all I'm living for
I love all things about you
Your heart your soul my love

I need you here beside me
Forever and a day a day
I know whatever betides me
I love you I love you I do

"If You Knew" Nina Simone

It Had To Be You

it had to be you
i wandered around and finally found
the somebody who
could make me be true
could make me be blue
or even be glad
just to be sad
thinking of you

some others i've seen
might never be mean
might never be cross
or try to be boss
but they wouldn't do
for nobody else gave me a thrill
with all your faults
i love you still
it had to be you, wonderful you
it had to be you

Leaving On A Jet Plane

all my bags are packed, i'm ready to go
i'm standin' here outside your door
i hate to wake you up to say goodbye
but the dawn is breakin', it's early morn
the taxi's waitin', he's blowin' his horn
already i'm so lonesome i could die

so kiss me and smile for me
tell me that you'll wait for me
hold me like you'll never let me go
'cause i'm leaving on a jet plane
i don't know when i'll be back again
oh, babe, i hate to go
there's so many times i've let you down
so many times i've played around
i'll tell you now, they don't mean a thing
every place i go, i think of you
every song i sing, i sing for you
when i come back i'll wear your wedding ring

now the time has come to leave you
one more time, oh, let me kiss you
and close your eyes and i'll be on my way
dream about the days to come
when i won't have to leave alone
about the times that i won't have to say
and i'm leaving on a jet plane
i don't know when I'll be back again
oh, babe, i hate to go
but i'm leaving on a jet plane
leaving on a jet plane

Chet Baker

Let's Get Lost

Let's get lost, lost in each other's arms
Let's get lost, let them send out alarms
And though they'll think us rather rude
Let's tell the world we're in that crazy mood

Let's defrost, in a romantic mist
Let's get crossed, off everybody's list
To celebrate this night we found each other
Darling, let's get lost

Let's get lost in a romantic mist
Let's get crossed, off everybody's list
To celebrate this night we found each other
Darling, let's get lost

"Let's Get Lost" Chet Bake

Sviatoslav Richter

The Pianist

Sviatoslav Richter (Ucrânia, 1915/1997)

É considerado um dos maiores pianistas clássicos de todos os tempos.
Richter era um pianista virtuoso, ainda que nunca
tenha usado essa virtuosidade para outro fim
a não ser para manifestar a poesia essencial da música.

As suas interpretações eram soberbas e controladas,
e o seu repertório era muito amplo.
Variava de Bach e Haydn até Debussy e Shostakovich.
Richter tinha um espírito independente, preferia seguir
os seus instintos a aprender com outros pianistas e,
por isso, as suas interpretações são únicas.

No entanto, ele podia interpretar uma obra magnificamente bem
ou, segundo ele mesmo admitia, como um aluno medíocre.
A sua obsessão pela qualidade e perfeccionismo tornou-o
um crítico feroz, sobretudo dele mesmo.

My Skin

take a look at my body
look at my hands
there's so much here that
i don't understand
your face saving promises
whispered like prayers
i don't need them

cuz i've been treated so wrong
i've been treated so long
as if i'm becoming untouchable

well, contempt loves the silence
it thrives in the dark
the fine winding tendrils that
strangle the heartthey say that promises
sweeten the blow
but i don't need them
no i don't need them

i've been treated so wrong
i've been treated so long as
if i'm becoming untouchable
i'm a slow dying flower
in the frost killing hours
weet turning sourand untouchable

do you remember the way that
you touched me before
all the trembling sweetness
i loved and adored
your face saving promises
whispered like prayers
i don't need them

i need the darkness
the sweetness
the sadness
the weakness
oh, i need this
i need a lullabye
a kiss goodnight
angel, sweet love of my life
oh, i need this
well, is it dark enough
can you see me?
do you want me?
can you reach me?
or i'm leaving
you better shut your mouth
and hold your breath
you kiss me now
you catch your death
oh, i mean this

I'll Find A Way

i'll find a way to see you again
i'll find a way to see you again
.
i used to think that anything i'd do
wouldn't matter at all anyway
but now i find that when it comes to you
i'm the winner of cards i can't play
wait for me, wait for me
darling, i need you desperately, desperately here
.
and i'll find a way to see you again
and i'll find a way to see you again
.
the rain is like an orchestra to me
little gifts from above meant to say
girl, you falling at his feet
isn't lovely or stunning today
wait with me, wait with me
i'm alive when you're here with me
here with me, stay
.
and i'll find a way to see you again
and i'll find a way to see you again

Wait

feel i'm on the verge
of some greath thruth
were i'm finally in my place
but i'm thumbling still for proof
and it's cluttering my space
casting shadows on my face
i know i have a strength to move ahead
i can hardly leave my room
so i'll sit perfecty still
and i'll listen for a tune
when the mind is on the moon
.
and if i stumble
and if i stall
and if i slit now
and if i should fall
and if i can't be all that i could be
will you, will you wait for me
cause everywhere i seem to be

i am only passing through
i dream these days about the sea
always wake up feeling blue
wishing i could dream of you

.
so if i stumble
and if i fall
and if i slit now
and loose it all
and if i can't be all that i could be
will you, will you wait for me

.
and wait for me
won't you wait for me
please wait for me

.

Love In Vain

well, i followed her to the station
with a suitcase in my hand
yeah, i followed her to the station
with a suitcase in my hand
well, its hard to tell, its hard to tell
but all true loves in vain
when the train come in the station
i looked her in the eye
well, the train come in the station
i looked her in the eye
well, i felt so sad and lonesome that
i could not help but cry

when the train left the station
it had two lights on behind
yeah, the train left the station
it had two lights on behind
well, the blue light was my baby
and the red light was my mind
all my loves in vain
all, all my loves in vain

The Rolling Stones

Bodies In Trouble

You just want to push somebody
And a body won’t let you
Just want to move somebody
And a body won’t let you
Who do you talk to …
Who?
Who do you talk to …
When a body’s in trouble?
You just want to run somebody
And a body won’t let you
Want to let somebody and a body won’t let
You want to kiss, feel, take, hear, ride
Stop, start somebody and a body won’t let you
Who do you talk to …
Who?
Who do you talk to …
When a body’s in trouble?

Joni Mitchell

California

Welcome to the hotel california

Such a lovely place
Such a lovely face
They livin it up at the hotel california
What a nice surprise, bring your alibis.

Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink champagne on ice.
And she said, we are all just prisoners here
Of our own device.
And in the masters chambers,
They gathered for the feast.
The stab it with their steely knives,
But they just cant kill the beast.

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door.
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before.
Relax, said the night man,
We are programmed to receive.
You can checkout any time you like,
But you can never leave!

from "Hotel California" / Eagles

"California", 1955 / Elliott Erwitt

Mysteries

god knows how i adore life
when the wind turns on the shores lies another day
i cannot ask for more
.
when the time bell blows my heart
and i have scored a better day
well nobody made this war of mine
.
and the moments that i enjoy
a place of love and mystery

i'll be there anytime
.
oh, mysteries of love
where war is no more
i'll be there anytime

Hurt /// A Way

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 hold
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'm still right here

what have i become
my ssweetest 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

que n'alma me tem posto

Let's Start /// The Sound Of Music / Do Re Mi

let's start at the very beginning

a very good place to start

when you read you begin with A-B-C

when you sing you begin with do-re-mi

do-re-mi, do-re-mi

the first three notes just happen to be

do-re-mi, do-re-mi

do-re-mi-fa-so-la-ti

let's see if i can make it easy
