A Street

I used to be your favorite drunk
Good for one more laugh
Then we both ran out of luck
Luck was all we ever had
You put on a uniform
To fight the Civil War
You looked so good I didn’t care
What side you’re fighting for

It wasn’t all that easy
When you up and walked away
But I’ll save that little story
For another rainy day
I know the burden’s heavy
As you wheel it through the night
Some people say it’s empty
But that don’t mean it’s light

You left me with the dishes
And a baby in the bath
You’re tight with the militias
You wear their camouflage
You always said we’re equal
So let me march with you
Just an extra in the sequel
To the old red white and blue

Baby don’t ignore me
We were smokers we were friends
Forget that tired story
Of betrayal and revenge
I see the Ghost of Culture
With numbers on his wrist
Salute some new conclusion
Which all of us have missed

I cried for you this morning
And I’ll cry for you again
But I’m not in charge of sorrow
So please don’t ask me when
There may be wine and roses
And magnums of champagne
But we’ll never no we’ll never
Ever be that drunk again

The party’s over
But I’ve landed on my feet
I’ll be standing on this corner
Where there used to be a street

(Leonard Cohen)

Anywhere

We tried to invade
But some of us in each
At least try hold the other
In the right light
 

Uh... this sky is gonna break
Some of us dies heroes
At least they'll never suffer
At least they're always free...
 

The ocean... I could go anywhere! I could go anywhere!
So free, my place in the sun, I could go anywhere!
 

You know all about me
That's what's so frightening
You know all about me
It seems like you're always traveling
 

We tried to engage
Softened up by piece
At least I have my taste
Of the nightlife
 

Be kind to the base
Some day you might need them
At least they'll never suffer
At least they're always free...
 

The ocean... I could go anywhere! I could go anywhere!
So free, it's my nature to want, I could go anywhere!
 

You know all about me
That's what's so frightening
You know all about me
It seems your not travelling

Célebre Batalha do Formariz

Deixem os outros falar
Só me dão ideias para cantar
Deixem os outros falar
Só me dão ideias para cantar, são ideias para cantar 

 
Explicar o que eu te digo
Só vai dar mais trabalho
Cada um no seu galho
E eu no meu umbigo
Em Portugal para França
Reage quem suporta
aos passos desta dança
E ao pão de Aljubarrota
 

Deixem os outros falar
Só me dão ideias para cantar, são ideias para cantar
 

Qual era a mãe vencita
Rebenta até tequila
Choque cosmopolita
E a banda descarrila
Quando eu voltar da França
E fizer esta malha
Vou-me lembrar da dança
Que provocou batalha
 

Deixem os outros falar
Só me dão ideias para cantar
Deixem os outros falar
Só me dão ideias para cantar, são ideias para cantar


(Capitão Fausto)

Let Me Down Gently

let me down gently
that's what i think i need
but when you let me down gently
it still feels hard, hard

turn me into someone good
that's what i really need
tell me that i'm someone good
so we're not so far apart, apart

i hope it doesn't seem
like i'm young foolish and green
let me in for a minute
your not my life but i want you in it

set me up slowly
that's what you do to me
oh you set me up slowly
now i can't come down, down

let you down gently
that's what i think you need
but when i let you down your empty
and you try to hide your frowns, frowns

i hope it doesn't seem
like i'm young foolish and green
let me in for a minute
your not my life but i want you in it
and i hope it's sinking in
that behind your perfect skin
there's a part of you that's free
and i know that there's a place for me

how do you feel
in the night
now the feeling's
left behind
as you know there
was a time
when your silence
left me blind
now your calling
from the aisle
i can see that
it's denial
a denial
left to slide
now there's nothing
left to hide

Byegone

Day dead bye-gone
Laying near the lights
Of the knights of the northern lodges
There’s a border road
No one slip slides or stoppin’
And the neighborly, sleeping in a coffin

With enough keif
You could really bore someone
Took a rat trap out to the Ache Inn
We were drinking all the ways to down
Door's wide open
You know what were saying ‘bout us now
He’s a legend
I’m a legend
And we both go tripping through the door

You know that we are northern now
Heard you promise me at the north end of monogamy
Cut there from filament lead

Somewhere I heard you scream
For others’ hearts
And in the limiest of lights
Hold the keys to a Cuban flight that you won’t ever ride
It’s time to up and die

Set sail!
Set sail!
Set sail!
Set sail!

Oh, you plenty competent
So why aren’t you confident
It’s softening to be softening
Then why are you so constant then?
Are we going on a coat ride?
Well, were off and definitely stumbling
Tossin’ off your compliments, wow
Sexing all your Parliaments

(Vulcano Choir)

Margarida

Ai, Margarida,
Se eu te desse a minha vida,
Que farias tu com ela?
— Tirava os brincos do prego,
Casava c’um homem cego
E ia morar para a Estrela.
Mas, Margarida,
Se eu te desse a minha vida,
Que diria tua mãe?
— (Ela conhece-me a fundo.)
Que há muito parvo no mundo,
E que eras parvo também.
E, Margarida,
Se eu te desse a minha vida
No sentido de morrer?
— Eu iria ao teu enterro,
Mas achava que era um erro
Querer amar sem viver.
Mas, Margarida,
Se este dar-te a minha vida
Não fosse senão poesia?
— Então, filho, nada feito.
Fica tudo sem efeito.
Nesta casa não se fia.

(Guta Naki)

Eu Sei Que Não Sou Sincero

Ela é uma rapariga
Que nunca está feliz
Controla, descontrola
Gostava de ser actriz

Ele é um rapaz
E nunca se dá por vencido
A luta trabalha
Quer ser conhecido

Mas eu
Eu não sou assim
Prefiro não, não, não, não
Não saber o fim

Eu sei que eu não sou sincero
Eu sei que eu não posso tentar fingir
Que posso ser
Eu sei que eu não sou sincero
E que eu não posso tentar fingir
Que posso ser

E nas confusões
Que nos guiam o instinto
E pulso vital, puro reflexo
O nosso labirinto

E nas contrariedades
Suadas ausências do ser
Impulso fatal, leve sinal
Molto prazer

Mas eu
Eu não sou assim
Prefiro não, não, não, não
Não saber o fim

Eu sei que eu não sou sincero
Eu sei que eu não posso tentar fingir
Que posso ser
Eu sei que eu não sou sincero
E que eu não posso tentar fingir
Que posso ser

The Dirt

Momma, I know the well is dry
Sing me a song one more time
The wind is raging and the birds won't fly
Nothing to eat and nowhere to hide

Momma, is gonna be alright
Tell me the story just one more time
Where the grass is green and the water runs wild
Where forever is forever and no one has to die

Cause you can't drink the dirt even if you wanna
Cause you can't eat the dirt even if you wanna
Cause you can't breathe the dirt even if you wanna
But you'll be in the dirt, you'll be the dirt

Momma, I know I'm ready now
I'm not afraid, and you don't need to cry
Just close my eyes and wake up into a new life
Momma, there's no need to cry

Because you can't drink the dirt even if you wanna
Cause you can't eat the dirt even if you wanna
Cause you can't breathe the dirt even if you wanna
But you'll be in the dirt, you'll be the dirt

Que bonita é Pilar
Mas eu não a quero
Mas eu não a quero

Que bonita é Leonor
Mas eu não a quero
Mas eu não a quero

Inês sabe quanto vale
Mas eu não a quero
Mas eu não a quero

Carolina quer-me bem
Mas eu não a quero
Mas eu não a quero

Júlia diz que quer também
Mas eu não a quero
Mas eu não a quero

Quero é Maria
Quero é Maria
Quero é Maria
Quero é Maria

Ana dança para mim
Mas eu não a quero
Mas eu não a quero

Margarida faz que sim
Mas eu não a quero
Mas eu não a quero

Quero é Maria
Quero é Maria
Quero é Maria
Quero é Maria

Quero é Maria
Quero é Maria
Quero é Maria
Quero é Maria

Maria sabe quem sou, por trás das luzes
Sabe quem sou, por trás da luz
Sabe quem sou, por trás das luzes
Sabe quem sou, por trás da luz
E só eu sei, quem, Maria, é
Só eu sei, quem, Maria, é

Intruders

Maybe when I’m older, I’ll be clearer,
more attuned and understanding.
Well, I’m ready.
I wrote a list of my demands and then I burned an older version.

So to start with, I’ll start over.
I’ll cut my hair and cut the power.
So who am I without weapons? Without defense to arm my guards against intruders?
Well this is my house, so fuck your doubts and your cute battalion,
‘cause I’m steady,
and when my double scales the wall, I’ll know exactly where he’s landing and I’ll surprise him.

Then when he’s captured, with his hands bound,
I beg for answers to all my questions, like,
“What happened?
Why’d you let me let you in when I was younger?
And why’d I need to?”

Stevie

Stevie, where you going with that gun
Who you wanna shoot down
Who you tryinna kill

'Cos you've been watching too much TV
It's playing with your memory
It's tryinna break your heart

Just calm down, take your medication
It numbs you to the world
Not my world

And all the kids they say
We'll live to fight another day
We'll live to fight again
And all the kids they say
Live to fight another day
Live to fight again, again, again, again

There's no life underneath your finger
I dreamt a little bigger
I'm sick and tired of this

If you show us what we can't have
What do you expect when
We take it back from you

'Cos it's no joke, no joke
I wanna open up your eyes wide, eyes wide
I feel it coming but you can't hide, can't hide
I'll make you see it

And all the kids they say
Live to fight another day
Live to fight again
And all the kids they say
Live to fight another day
Live to fight again, again, again, again

And the ordinary people
Living ordinary lives
There's more than just existence
I see the fire in your eyes

It comes as no surprise
It's time to push things forward
'Cos there's no way back, yeah,
There's no way back now

Hard Believer

I can see the light coming
I can see the light coming
Over the hill, over the hill

Hard Believer
Hard Believer
Won’t you believe, won’t you believe me now

We were made for each other
won’t you believe me now
We were made for each other
won’t you believe me now

I can hear the silence
I can hear the silence
Golden like the new sun

Hard Believer
Hard Believer
Won’t you believe me now

(Fink)
