I'm Going To A Town

Rufus Wainwright

video

That Has Already Been Burned Down

i'm going to a town that has already been burned down
i'm going to a place that has already been disgraced
i'm gonna see some folks who have already been let down
i'm so tired of America

i'm gonna make it up for all of the Sunday times
i'm gonna make it up for all of the nursery rhymes
they never really seem to want to tell the truth
i'm so tired of you, America

making my own way home
ain't gonna be alone
i got a life to lead, America
i got a life to lead

tell me
do you really think you go to hell for having love?
tell me
and laugh at thinking everything that you've done is good?
i really need to know
after soaking the body of Jesus Christ in blood
i'm so tired of America
i really need to know

i may just never see you again
or might as well
you took advantage of a world that loved you well
i'm going to a town that has already been burned down
i'm so tired of you, America

making my own way home
ain't gonna be alone
i got a life to lead, America
i got a life to lead
i got a soul to feed
i got a dream to need
and that's all i need

making my own way home
ain't gonna be alone
i'm going to a town that has already been burned down

Secret

she'll let you in her house
if you come knockin' late at night
she'll let you in her mouth
if the words you say are right
if you pay the price
she'll let you deep inside
but there's a secret garden she hides

she'll let you in her car
to go drivin' round
she'll let you into the parts of herself
that'll bring you down
she'll let you in herheart
if you got a hammer and a vise
but into her secret garden, don't think twice

Bruce Springsteen

Garden

you've gone a million miles
how far'd you get
to that place where you can't remember
and you can't forget

she'll lead you down a path
there'll be tenderness in the air
she'll let you come just far enough
so you know she's really there
she'll look at you and smile
and her eyes will say
she's got a secret garden
where everything you want
where everything you need
will always stay
a million miles away

Wishlist

i wish
i was
the evidence
i wish
i was the sound
of fifty million
hands up
raised and opened
toward the sky

Pearl Jam

Wishlist

i wish i was a neutron bomb
for once i could go off
i wish i was a sacrifice
but somehow still lived on
i wish i was a sentimental
ornament you hung on
the christmas tree
i wish i was the star
that went on top

i wish i was the evidence
i wish i was the sound
of fifty million hands up
raised and opened
toward the sky

i wish i was a sailor with
someone who waited for me
i wish i was as fortunate
as fortunate as me

i wish i was a messenger
and all the news is good
i wish i was
the full moon shining
off a camaro’s hood

i wish i was an alien
at home behind the sun
i wish i was the souvenir
you kept your house key on

i wish i was the pedal break
that you depended on
i wish i was the verb to trust
and never let you down

i wish i was the radio song
the one that you turned up
i wish, i wish, i wish, i wish
i guess it never stops

Sally's Song

i sense there's something in the wind
that seems like tragedy's at hand
and though i'd like to stand by him
can't shake this feeling that i have

the worst is just around the bend
and does he notice
my feelings for him?
and will he see
how much he means to me?
i think it's not to be

what will become of my dear friend?
where will his actions lead us than?
although i'd like to join the crowd
in their in enthusiastic cloud
try as i may it doesn't last

and will we ever
end up together?
no i think not
it's never to become
for i am not the one

River, Stay Away From My Door

you keep going your way
i'll keep going my way
river, stay away from my door

i just got a cabin
you don't need my cabin
river, stay away from my door

don't come up any higher
i'm so all alone
leave my bed and my fire
that's all i own

i ain't breaking your heart
don't go breaking my heart
river, stay away from my door

oh lord, ain't been faithful
and worked damn hard in the sweat and sun
oh lord, didn't i pray for you
and thanked you for all you've done
oh lord, you made the river
but won't you try to remember
that you made me too
oh lord, hear me pray to you and
make the river hear my plea

i'll keep breaking your heart
don't go breaking my heart
oh river, stay away from my door
river, stay away from my door

Shadow Boxer

once my lover, now my friend
what a cruel thing to pretend
what a cunning way to condescend
once my lover, and now my friend
oh, you creep up like the clouds
and you set my soul at ease
then you let your love abound
and you bring me to my knees
oh, its evil, babe, the way you let your
grace enrapture me
when well you know, i'd be insance
to ever let that dirty game recapture me

you made me a shadowboxer, baby
i wanna be ready for what you do
i been swinging all around me
'cause i don't know when you're
gonna make your move

oh, your gaze is dangereous
and you fill your space so sweet
if i let you get too close
you'll set your spell on me
so darlin' i just wanna say
just in case i don't come through
i was on to every play
i just wanted you

but, oh, it's so evil, my love, the way you've
no reverence to my concern
so i'll be sure to stay weary of you, love
to save the pain of
once my flame and twice my burn

Fiona Apple

Across The Universe

words are flying out like
endless rain into a paper cup
they slither while they pass
they slip away across the universe
pools of sorrow waves of joy
are drifting thorough my open mind
possessing and caressing me

jai guru deva om
nothing's gonna change my world

images of broken light which
dance before me like a million eyes
that call me on and on across the universe
thoughts meander like a
restless wind inside a letter box
they tumble blindly as
they make their way across the universe

jai guru deva om
nothing's gonna change my world

sounds of laughter shades of life
are ringing through my open ears
exciting and inviting me
limitless undying love which
shines around me like a million suns
it calls me on and on across the universe

jai guru deva om
nothing's gonna change my world

Heart And Tears

Ladies and Gentlemen,

ANTONY AND THE JOHNSONS

Antony And The Johnsons

You Are My Sister

you are my sister, we were born
so innocent, so full of need
there were times we were friends but times i was so cruel
each night i'd ask for you to watch me as i sleep
i was so afraid of the night
you seemed to move through the places that i feared
you lived inside my world so softly
protected only by the kindness of your nature

you are my sister
and i love you
may all of your dreams come true
we felt so differently then
so similar over the years
the way we laugh the way we experience pain
so many memories
but there's nothing left to gain from remembering
faces and worlds that no one else will ever know

you are my sister
and i love you
may all of your dreams come true
i want this for you
they're gonna come true (gonna come true)

Antony And The Johnsons

The Lake

in youth's spring, it was my lot
to haunt of the wide earth a spot
to which i could not love the less
so lovely was the loneliness
of a wild lake, with black rock bound
and the tall trees that towered around

but when the night had thrown her pall
upon that spot as upon all
and the wind would pass me by
in its stilly melody

my infant spirit would awake
to the terror of the lone lake

yet that terror was not fright
but a tremulous delight
and a feeling undefined
springing from a darkened mind
death was in that poisoned wave
and in its gulf a fitting grave
for him who thence could solace bring
to his dark imagining
whose wildering thought could even make
an eden of that dim lake

springing from a darkened mind
so lovely was the loneliness
in youth's spring, it was my lot
in its stilly melody
an eden of that dim lake
lone, lone, lonely...

Antony And The Johnsons /// *

Twilight

twilight
i fall in the harbor
twilighti fall in the hills
but here in the city
that never sleeps
i can fall
through one's fingers

when the swanf
lies to heaven
soaring through
the utmost fear
there's a feeling
that lingers in the afterwards
will you ever return

twilight
i sit at all tables
with my candles
and angels besides
and i shall wait forever
as the day turns to night
swallowed in the shadows that glow

when i sought out a light
and i knew darkness swallowed
i beseech, come to me
all alone, come to me

Antony And The Johnsons

Hope There's Someone

hope there's someone
who'll take care of me
when i die, will i go

hope there's someone
who'll set my heart free
nice to hold when i'm tired

there's a ghost on the horizon
when i go to bed
how can i fall asleep at night
how will i rest my head

oh, i'm scared of the middle place
between light and nowhere
i don't want to be the one
left in there, left in there

there's a man on the horizon
wish that i'd go to bed
if i fall to his feet tonight
will allow rest my head

so here's hoping i will not drown
or paralyze in lightand god
send i don't want to go
to the seal's watershed

Antony And The Johnsons

If It Be Your Will

if it be your will
that I speak no more
and my voice be still
as it was before
i will speak no more
i shall abide until
i am spoken for
if it be your will

if it be your will
that a voice be true
from this broken hill
i will sing to you
from this broken hill
all your praises they shall ring
if it be your will
to let me sing

if it be your will
if there is a choice
let the rivers fill
let the hills rejoice
let your mercy spill
on all these burning hearts in hell
if it be your will
to make us well

and draw us near
and bind us tight
all your children here
in their rags of light
in our rags of light
all dressed to kill
and end this night
if it be your will

if it be your will

"If It Be Your Will" Leonard Cohen

Antony And The Johnsons

Bird Gerhl

i am a bird girl now
i've got my heart
here in my hands now
i've been searching
for my wings some time
i'm gonna be born
into soon the sky
'cause i'm a bird girl
and the bird girls go to heaven
i'm a bird girl
and the bird girls can fly
bird girls can fly

Antony And The Johnsons // Rufus Wainwright /// *

Antony And The Johnsons CD / Rufus Wainwright singing

What Can I Do ?

what can i do
when the bird's got to die
what can i do
when she's too weak to fly
what can i do
when she's calling my names
he's crying
mama, help me to live
what can i do

Estás Dentro De Mim / Por Dentro De Mim

dentro de mim, por dentro de mim
é pena quase não poder ficar
és quente quando a luz te traz
quase te vi amor, quase nasci sem ti
quase morri dentro de mim
ficas dentro de mim, por dentro de mim
estás dentro de mim

silêncio, lua, casa, chão
és sítio onde as mãos se dão
quase larguei a dor, quase perdi
quase morri dentro de mim
estás dentro de mim, por dentro de mim
ficas dentro de mim

sempre sou mais um homem
mais humano, mais um fraco
sempre sou mais um braço
mais um corpo, mais um grito
sempre, dança em mim, mundo, vida e fim
dorme aqui, dentro de mim

é pena quase não poder ficar
no sítio onde as mãos se dão
quase fugi amor, quase não vi
vamos embora daqui
para dentro de mim

Isn't It A Pity ?

how we break
each other's hearts
and cause
each other pain
how we take
each other's love
without
thinking
anymore

To Love Somebody

there's a way everybody say
to do each and every little thing
but what does it bring
if i ain't got you, ain't got?

Nine Million Bicycles

there are six billion people
in the world
more or less
and it makes me feel
quite small
but you're the one i love
the most of all
