AIN'T LIFE UNKIND ?


she would never say where she came from
yesterday don't matter if it's gone
while the sun is bright
or in the darkest night
no one knows
she comes and goes

goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
who could hang a name on you?
when you change with every new day
still i'm gonna miss you...

don't question why she needs to be so free
she'll tell you it's the only way to be
she just can't be chained
to a life where nothing's gained
and nothing's lost
at such a cost

there's no time to lose, i heard her say
catch your dreams before they slip away
dying all the time
lose your dreams
and you will lose your mind
ain't life unkind?

É sempre muito difícil
desligarmo-nos
do que gostamos muito.
Por isso, ainda aqui estou.
O Blog vai mesmo ser encerrado.
Não me esqueci, no entanto,
de algo que foi prometido no mesmo.
A colecção dos CDs da "Pop History" será,
oportunamente, terminada.
.
Beijos e abraços a todos.

The Everthere

all my saints have taken bribes
singing going going gone
all the angels taken dives
leaving you the only one

if i loose a sequin here and there
more salt than pepper in my hair
can i rely on you
when all the songs are through
to be for me the everthere, everthere

slide into another book
now and then laugh out loud
throw that very dirty look
that says, ok
stop staring at me now

if i loose the sequence here and there
less derring do than quiet care
can i rely on you
for a good talking to
to be for me the everthere, everthere

if i loose a sequin here and there
and take my time on every stair
can i rely on you
when this whole thing is through
to be for me the everthere, everthere
everthere

Great Expectations

and if it rains all day
call on you i'll call on you
like i used to
slide down beside and wrap you in stories
tailored entirely for you
i'll remind you
we exchanged a vow
i love you i always will

a call girl with yesterday eyes
was our witness and priest
stockport supporters club kindly supplied us a choir
your veil was your smile
as we move down the aisle
of the last bus home
and this is where i go
just when it rains

blinking and stoned
rain in your hair
you only smoke 'cause it's something to share
singing bring on the night
to have and to hold
the sodium light turning silver to gold

spitfire thin and strung like a violin
i was
yours was the face with a grace
from a different age
you were the sun in my sunday morning
telling me never to go
so i'll live on the smile
and move down the isle
of the last bus home
and if you're running late
this is where i'll go

The Stops

i can't undo the day
it won't go under the rug
i pull out all the stops
and you pull the plug

these are sober days and i know it can't be
but i'll miss you the way you miss the sea

don't look down
keep staring like you've never seen the stars
if you need me to remind you who you are
little blossom there's the shiniest soul
just behind those eyes

'no longer my affair'
well i can't go there just yet
so i've come to love and trust those friends
that are holding your net

falling off used to mean
maybe grazing a knee
and i'll miss you the way you miss the sea

don't look down
keep staring like you've never seen the stars
if you need me to remind you who you are
little blossom there's the shiniest soul
just behind these eyes

while i won't second guess
what you're thinking of me

Fugitive Motel

lost in a lullaby
side of the road
melt in a memory
slide in a solitude
not 'til i can read by the moon
am i going anywhere
not 'til i can read by the moon

i blow you a kiss
it should reach you tomorrow
as it flies from the other side of the world
from my room in my fugitive motel
somewhere in the dust bowl
it flies from the other side of the world

'i'm tired', i said
'you always look tired', she said
'i'm admired', i said
'you always look tired', she said
not 'til i can read by the moon
am i going anywhere
not 'til i can read by the moon

curtains stay closed
but everyone knows
you hear through the walls in this place
cigarette holes for every lost soul
to give up the ghost in this place
give me strength
give me wings

Flying Dream 143

flying dream 143
i stretched out my arms
and my feet left the floor
and how all fifteen (ahem) stone flew to you
i don't know

Elvis Presley

It's Now Or Never

it's now or never
come hold me tight
kiss me my darling
be mine tonight
tomorrow will be too late
it's now or never
my love won't wait

when i first saw you
with your smile so tender
my heart was captured
my soul surrendered
i'd spend a lifetime
waiting for the right time
now that your near
the time is here at last

just like a willow
we would cry an ocean
if we lost true love
and sweet devotion
your lips excite me
let your arms invite me
for who knows when
we'll meet again this way

it's now or never
come hold me tight
kiss me my darling
be mine tonight
tomorrow will be too late
it's now or never
my love won't wait

"It's Now Or Never" Elvis Presley

No Comments /// My House?

Se meu desejo só é sempre ver-vos,
que causará, senhora, que em vos vendo
assi me encolho logo, e arrependo,
que folgaria então poder esquecer-vos?

Se minha glória só é sempre ter-vos
no pensamento meu, porque em querendo
cuidar em vós, se vai entristecendo?
Nem ousa meu esprito em si deter-vos?

Se por vós só a vida estimo, e quero,
como por vós a morte só desejo?
Quem achará em tais contrários meio?

Não sei entender o que em mim mesmo vejo.
mas que tudo é amor, entendo, e creio,
e no que entendo, e creio, nisso espero.

António Ferreira (1528-1569)

Go Ahead

if you want to find yourself
by travelling out west
or if you want to find somebody else
that's better

if you want to buy
a brand new fancy automobile
or if you want to build a place
up in coldwater canyon
go ahead
i wish you would
go ahead

if you want to hold your own hand
going up that cliff
or if you want to just hold back
cause you ain't up to it
go ahead
be my guest
go ahead

if you want to hold on
to the first girl that you meet
or if you want to settle down
and plant roses at my feet
go ahead
i wish you would
go ahead

if you want to have
your cake and eat it too
and if you want to have other people
watch you while you eat it
go ahead
be my guest
go ahead

if you want better things
i want you to have them
if you want better things
then i want you to have them
go ahead
i wish you would
go ahead
