You Blossom Like A Flower

Glacier

You just want to live your life
The best way you know how
But they keep on telling you
That you are not allowed

They say you are sick
That you should hang your head in shame
They are pointing fingers
And want you to take the blame

There are days when people are
So nasty and convincing
They say things beyond belief
That sting and leave you wincing

And to boot they say their words
Come straight down from above
And they really seem to think
That what they're doing counts as love

This pain
It is a glacier moving through you
And carving out deep valleys
And creating spectacular landscapes
And nourishing the ground
With precious minerals and other stuff
So, don't you become paralyzed with fear
When things seem particularly rough

Don't you pay them fuckers as they say no never mind
They don't give two shits about you. It's the blind leading the blind
What they want is commonly referred to as theocracy
And what that boils down to is referred as hypocrisy

Don't listen to anyone; get answers on your own
Even if it means that sometimes you feel quite alone
No one on this planet can tell you what to believe
People like to talk a lot, and they like to deceive

This pain
It is a glacier moving through you
And carving out deep valleys
And creating spectacular landscapes
And nourishing the ground
With precious minerals and other stuff
So, don't you become paralyzed with fear
When things seem particularly rough

This pain
It is a glacier moving through you
And carving out deep valleys
And creating spectacular landscapes
And nourishing the ground
With precious minerals and other stuff
So, don't you become paralyzed with fear
When things seem particularly rough

Promising

Cross your fingers behind your back
Squeeze mine until they crack
I must have known you were just promising
Promising, promising

Toothy smile, girly style
In the back yard, all the while
I must have known you were just promising
Promising, promising

I promise you and you promise me
Not to admit defeat
I promise, you promise me

So comforting, wear your ring
Over my head, around my finger
I must have known you were just promising
Promising, promising

I promise you and you promise me
Not to admit defeat
I promise, you promise me

(Wilco)

Do You Hear What I Hear?


Said the night wind to the little lamb,
do you see what I see
Way up in the sky, little lamb,
do you see what I see
A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy,
do you hear what I hear
Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy,
do you hear what I hear
A song, a song, high above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king,
do you know what I know
In your palace warm, mighty king,
do you know what I know
A Child, a Child shivers in the cold
Let us bring Him silver and gold
Let us bring Him silver and gold

Said the king to the people everywhere,
listen to what I say
Pray for peace, people everywhere!
listen to what I say
The Child, the Child, sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light

(Mark Kozelek)

I See Your Face

Muitos Chocolates

Não quero mais ficar com quem me maltrata
Não posso mais desperdiçar o meu amor assim
Faço questão de cafuné, massagem no pé
E muitos chocolates só pra mim

Por um beijinho de esquimó eu moro até no Alasca
Mas se quiser mudar pra china eu aprendo mandarim
Mas lá eu peço cafuné
Massagem no pé e muitos chocolates só pra mim

Admito morro de vontade
Dentro de mim mesma já nem caibo mais
Quero sim, até pela metade de tudo
Eu quero um pouco e você sabe
Que é que tem já que tamo vivo
A gente pelo menos aproveita mais
Fica aqui, fica só comigo
Fora desse quarto o mundo tanto faz

Não vou pedir roupa de cama ou talheres de prata
Nem que você suporte alguma amiga minha chata
Mas eu exijo cafuné massagem no pé
E muitos chocolates só pra mim

(Banda do Mar)

Vida Tão Estranha

São de veludo as palavras
Daquele que finge que ama
Ao desengano levo a vida
A sorte a mim já não me chama

Vida tão só
Vida tão estranha
Meu coração tão mal tratado
Já nem chorar me traz consolo
Resta-me só o triste fado

A gente vive na mentira
Já nem dá conta do que sente
Antes sozinha toda a vida
Que ter um coração que mente

(Rodrigo Leão com Camané

Speak To The Wild

Speak to the wild
Reach for the wire
Protect your child
From empty empire
The king has come
To join the band

Remove your wings
And meet us near the fire
Extinguish flames
Of earthly desire
The king has come
To leave the band
The king has come
With no demand

Don’t let the dark
Get you lost
Your free will has come
In fire and frost

Speak to the wild
Reach for the wire
Protect your child
From empty empire
The king has come
To join the band

Remove your wings
And meet us near the fire
Extinguish flames
Of earthly desire
The king has come
To leave the band
The king has come
With no demand

Don’t let the dark
Get you lost
Your free will has come
In fire and frost

Speak to the wild
Reach for the wire
Protect your child
From empty empire
The king has come
To join the band

Remove your wings
And meet us near the fire
Extinguish flames
Of earthly desire
The king has come
To leave the band
The king has come
With no demand

Don’t let the dark
Get you lost
Your free will has come
In fire and frost

(Thurston Moore)

In Your Eyes

love I get so lost, sometimes
days pass and this emptiness fills my heart
when I want to run away
I drive off in my car
but whichever way I go
I come back to the place you are

all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light
the heat I see in your eyes

love, I don't like to see so much pain
so much wasted and this moment keeps slipping away
I get so tired of working so hard for our survival
I look to the time with you to keep me awake and alive

and all my instincts, they return
and the grand facade, so soon will burn
without a noise, without my pride
I reach out from the inside

in your eyes
the light the heat
in your eyes
I am complete
in your eyes
I see the doorway to a thousand churches
in your eyes
the resolution of all the fruitless searches
in your eyes
I see the light and the heat
in your eyes
oh, I want to be that complete
I want to touch the light,
the heat I see in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes
in your eyes in your eyes

(Peter Gabriel)

Garota

There is only so much juice
You can suck out of a fruit
And the colour changes fast
When an apple's cut in half

Every ladder ends somewhere
Better time it's steps with care
Don't be the one who waits too long
Turns around and finds it gone

Choose the life you want to live
Give the love you want to give
Take the moment when it comes
Let it lead you, let it run

Feel the moisture in the air
Feel her fingers through your hair
Don't be shy when asking to
Be that way you were always meant to

You say that life is long
But you took the words
Out of my mind

Life is long and the world is small
Our paths will cross some other time

Given shelter, blessed by rain
To our common unknown aim
Through the north side of the town
To the south where we lay down

Under floodlights but no stars
Without people without cars
Where i ask you without sound
Will you answer without words?

Do the move that's written down
When you close your eyes you find
You can prophesise the steps
You can visualise the maps

If you act upon it when
There's no trace of doubt within
When your heart is freshly stung
You cannot fail, you cannot act wrong

You say that life is long
But you took the words
Out of my mind

Life is long and the world is small
Our paths will cross some other time

(Erlend Øye)

Soldadinho

Menina dos olhos tristes
o que tanto a faz chorar
o soldadinho não volta
do outro lado do mar
do outro lado do mar

Pequeno soldadinho grande
tenho saudades tuas
desses teu olhos brilhantes
sedentos de aventuras
da tua elegância britânica
num pijama anil
da tua candura titânica
mas quase infantil
mesmo se os ossos tivessem envelhecido
mesmo se os olhos tivessem escurecido
já te fui conhecer entre a morte e a tua mãe
quem te trouxe foi a música que amaste também
à livraria fui comprar o quero arte pra ti
tudo pra te dar a estrada e a liberdade
 ...... de saída aninhei-me naquela árvore
e ainda mais esquesita foi a vida ali buscar-me

Menina dos olhos tristes
o que tanto a faz chorar
o soldadinho não volta
do outro lado do mar
do outro lado do mar

Só querias ir pra casa
mas nunca te queixaste
para poupar os teus pais e os demais nunca choraste
amaste o mundo mesmo quando foi injusto
e só te restava o o sonho como um último reduto
mostraste que a ternura é a bravura de um homem 
e que ser forte é ser doce mesmo se as horas nos comem
bravo soldado grande diante da morte
delicado com o outro quando o teu corpo sofre
porque quando nada importa é quando importa de facto
saber sorrir para a sombra que mora no mesmo quarto
na luta ou no luto lado a lado de laço apertado
ali até que o luzir muda até ser escuro até ser vácuo

Menina dos olhos tristes
o que tanto a faz chorar
o soldadinho não volta
do outro lado do mar
do outro lado do mar

Já curta outros laços
e partos de muito luto
já me levou os seus braços
pra abraçar o outro mundo
mas tu foste ainda mais cedo
e a perda custa-nos muito
a batalha que travaste
foi de longe a mais injusta puto
nem tive tempo pra te ensinar palavrões a sério
pra te ouvir a praguejar alto e a gritar impropérios
pra te ver despenteado corado à gargalhada
vim tarde mas cheguei antes e devo-te um obrigada
quando está escuro ainda volto àquela árvore
onde a um pouco mais esquisita ainda  a vida vai buscar-me
na luta ou no luto lado a lado do laço apertado
na luta ou no luto lado a lado do laço apertado
na luta ou no luto lado a lado do laço apertado
ali até que o ser mude até ser escuro até ser vácuo

Menina dos olhos tristes
o que tanto a faz chorar
o soldadinho não volta
do outro lado do mar
do outro lado do mar

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)
