Ladies & Gentlemen...

sexta-feira, dezembro 28, 2007


i saw it coming
i just thought that you should know
i'm feeling better every day
i'm only waiting if you stay

so don't feel bad
your faith was an illusion
and you're as loyal as your faith
will let you be


your expectation
it's not hard to live without
i'm feeling better every day
and emptiness still leaves a space
so don't feel bad
you lost all your emotion
and may you find all your relations
will keep you free

a careless bird is complicated
an empty nest still leaves a space

Au Revoir Simone

The Lucky

a dream of togetherness
turned into a brighter mess
a faint sigh my spoken best
now, now

make way for the simple hours
no finding the time it’s ours
a fate or it's a desire
i know


so i was the lucky one
reading letters, not writing them
taking pictures of anyone
i know

so let the sun shine
let it come to show us

that tomorrow is eventual
we know it when the day is done

Au Revoir Simone /// Million Dollar Hotel /// *


we both know it's going
to be another long winter
the kind that freezes
shut the doors of early spring
but i still like the wind
when i hear you knocking
with a whisper
i'll open the doors
and i'll let you in

depressing things are empty
beds and lonely dinners
and women who are middle
aged with naked fingers
i'll buy myself a ring
to symbolize this marriage
every time i break
the laws to let you in


cause nothing's worse
than seeing you worse than me
and nothing hurts
like seeing you hurt like me
the consequence is less
than the happiness you bring to me
there's more to give
than what you take from me

believe in the things
that you know

throw a starving man
a piece of bread

all i said, i didn't mean
the chill is strong
and nothing seems
to thaw the icy sentiment
of love that's gone
once winter's spent

Au Revoir Simone


play me a sad song
that’s what i want to hear
i want you to make me cry
i want to remember
the places that we left
lost to the mists of time


i know that you’ll go soon
you’ll find out
so take me with you

on buses that move
through the night
we sleep on and on
we got off at memphis
black-top heat
will make us thirsty
we’ll never get sick

Au Revoir Simone

Didn't Leave Nobody

go to sleep little babe
go to sleep little babe
your momma's gone away and your daddy's gonna stay
didn't leave nobody but the baby
everybody's gone in the cotton and the corn
didn't leave nobody but the baby
you're a sweet little babe
you're a sweet little babe
honey in the rock and the sugar don't stop
gonna bring a bottle to the baby

But The Baby

don't you weep pretty babe
don't you weep pretty babe
she's long gone with her red shoes on
gonna need another loving babe
you and me and the devil makes three
don't need no other lovin' babe
go to sleep little babe
go to sleep little babe
come lay bones on the alabaster stones
and be my everlovin baby

Gillian Welch, Alison Krauss & Emmylou Harris /// O Brother Where Art Thou

I'll Be

close your eyes
close the door
you don't have to worry any more
i'll be your baby tonight

shut the light
shut the shade
you don't have to be afraid
i'll be your baby tonight

Your Baby

well, that mockingbirds
gonna sail away
were gonna forget it
that big, fat moon
is gonna shine like a spoon
but were gonna let it
you won't regret it


kick your shoes off
do not fear
bring that bottle over here
i'll be your baby tonight

The Christmas

chestnuts roasting on an open fire
jack frost nipping on your nose
yuletide carols being sung by a choir
and folks dressed up like eskimos

everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
can help to make the season bright
tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
will find it hard to sleep tonight


they know that santa's on his way
he's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
and every mother's child is going to spy
to see if reindeer really know how to fly

and so i'm offering this simple phrase
to kids from one to ninety-two
although its been said many times, many ways
a very merry christmas to you

Nat King Cole /// *

All I Ever Get For Christmas

strings of lights above the bed
conders down in a glass of red
all i ever get for christmas is blue

saxophone on the radio
recorded forthy years ago
all i ever get for christmas is blue

i’ll be drinking down your kisses
deep into the night we’ll go stilling
under nit the star-selling, reviling

with our minds said “it’s miserable”
but the snow is so beautiful
all i ever get for christmas is blue

Is Blue

it would take a miracle
to get me out to a shopping mole
all i real want for christmas is you

when you play my song
play and show me
play it like a side of a lover raid

baby, you can solve the mystery
grab me in your arms and whisper
you miss me

bright lights on the christmas tree
thank god you are here with me
all i ever get for christmas is blue

Over The Rhine
