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

The Noise Of Flames Crashing

Seen
Such things
Lost in my dreams
A game grotesque

Felt
Such things
A walk beautiful within

The noise of flames crashing insane
The noise of flames crashing insane

USA

Usa. Usa e abusa
Tratar-te por tu já não se usa em castelhano
Mudar de ideias eu mudo já desde que seja duma ideia suja

Use-se, comprometa-se e suje-se
Venda-se, é que o tempo urge
Se tutoyeur os franceses têm o vous
Eu tenho-te a ti
Uso-te nunca ousei nada e ninguém usei uma vez a inspiração de uma musa

Pergunta ao pai, pergunta ao filho, pergunta a um cego se ele quer mesmo ver
Pergunta a um velho se ele quer morrer
A um recém-nascido se lhe apetece viver
Pergunta à central de informações o que quer dizer US of A

Pergunta ao pai, pergunta ao filho, pergunta a um cego se ele quer mesmo ver
Pergunta ao espelho só mais uma vez
Pergunta a um velho se ele quer morrer
Pergunta a um pobre o que é que ele mais quer
A um recém nascido se lhe apetece viver
Pergunta à central de informações o que quer dizer US of A
Pergunta à central de informações o que quer dizer US of A
O que quer dizer US of A

Argentina (Parts I, II, III)

Oh what a girl
I wish I had another sister
For me
I’d take her to the park
While you were at work

How many kinds of people do you think there really are
For me?
Enough to fill a room
Enough to fill a mall

One sunset falls on the sea
You are not crying

Oh what a girl
I wish we had a conversation
Face to face
Cuz when you speak
You speak in waves

But then you go into your secret place and hide
From me?
I wanna look in all the dark, dark, dark, dark, dark, dark, dark, dark comers

One season you wait and see
You are not crying

One lover turns into me
You are not crying
For me

Oh Argentina

Born in 1988
Give or take
We share bottles
We share gum
When you smile
You smile with all your teeth at once

Oh what a girl I want you wearing my t-shirt
XL
Yeah, you wear it well

How many kinds of people do you think there really are
For me?
I want to see you in the bright, bright, bright, bright, bright, bright, bright, bright morning

One sunset pink on the sea
You are not crying

One lover turns into me
You are not crying
For me

Oh, Argentina

Born in 1988
Give or take a year or month a wedding day
We share bottles
We share gum
When you smile
You smile with all your teeth at once

And when you smile with all your teeth
Yeah, I’m done

And when you smile with all your teeth
Yeah, I’m done

I don’t want to want you like I want you
I don’t want to want you like I want you
I don’t want to want you like I want you
I don’t want to want you like I want you
I don’t want to want you like I want you

Television wakes me up
With the sound of a gun
Feeling like I’m here alone
But I’m not the only one

You were lying next to me
Wearing someone else’s clothes
Have I been asleep for long
In the informercial glow

Now I see the things that I have done
Everything in focus all at once

When I was an infant
I could see it clear

When I was a lover
I could see it clear

And yeah
I could be a fool

Sometimes

But I was a lover
And I could see it clear

‘Cause if I had known
That you were
Only here for the weekend

‘Cause if I had only known
What you were thinking

I would have been
So, so, so, so
Much nicer

So, so, so, so
Much nicer

If I was a lighthouse
I would look all
Over the place

If i was an asshole
Thank you for keeping
A smile on your face

And yeah
I could be a fool
Most of the time

But I was a lover
And I could see it clear

‘Cause if I had known
That you were
Only here for the weekend

‘Cause if I had only known
What you were thinking

I would have been
So, so, so, so
Much nicer

So, so, so, so
Much nicer

Yeah

I can see it
I can see it
Clear

I can see it
Clear

My Sister's Tiny Hands

We came in this world together
Legs wrapped around each other
My cheek against my sister's
We were born like tangled vine

We lived along the river
Where the black clouds never lingered
The sunlight spread like honey
Through my sister's tiny hands

But while picking sour apples
In the wild waving grasses
Sister stumbled in the briar
And was bitten by a snake

Every creature casts a shadow
Under the sun's golden fingers
And as the sun sinks past the waving grass
Some shadows are dragged along

Alone, I took to drinking
Bottles of cheap whiskey
And staggering through the back woods
Killing snakes with a sharpened stick

But still I heard her laughing
In those wild waving grasses
Still her tiny hands went splashing
At the river's sparkling shore

So I took my rusty gas can
And an old iron shovel
I set the woods to blaze
And choked the river up with stones

Every creature casts a shadow
Under the sun's golden fingers
And as the sun sinks past the waving grass
Some shadows are dragged along

Black Sheep

Oh, it’s no secret you know my every weakness.
Oh, haven’t the strength now, not enough to waste tonight.
Oh, spark the fire, tinderbox of desire.
Oh, Lord have mercy, the thirst I feel tonight.
I can see that you can see my eyes.

Black sheep up on the fence,
you’re a naughty little boy and you make me tense.
Prodigal son, won’t you come on home.
The door’s open wide, take a look inside, take a look inside.

Oh, my hands are tied now so you’ve gotta decide now.
See, I just can’t take it. Can’t you see that I’m breaking?

I can see—

Black sheep up on the fence,
you make me tense.
Prodigal son, won’t you come on home.
The door’s open wide, take a look inside, take a look inside
.
Bah, bah black sheep up on the fence,
you’re a naughty little boy and you make me tense.
Prodigal son, won’t you come on home.
The door’s open wide, take a look inside, take a look inside

Amigos Mortais

Não há segredos vãos,
Quando te prendo as mãos
e tapo a boca
Não há palavras tuas
Que acendam as ruas onde
A luz é pouca
Fomos feitos de algo mais,
Que não tem forma nem razão
Tivemos tempo para ser mais,
Roubar a carne dos chacais
És só de mim,
Mas fomos tarde demais

A Pale Horse

Behold a great horse
That’s why is a pale horse
All cramps and low rider
With a whip in my hand
You and then I’m a lover
Solution confused
With a wave in my hand
I’ll crush your sweet soul
Yeah, you don’t stand a chance.

Master, I’m gonna clutch you right where you stand
Love in the shadows waiting, hiding in the shadow waiting
Love in the shadows waiting for you, love in the shadows waiting, waiting for you.

Behold a grey horse
That’s why is a pale horse
The cramps in low rider
With a whip in my hand
You should have killed me in the first time
Gonna live to regret it
Well, you don’t stand a chance
Keep on, little hipster

Master, I’m gonna clutch you right where you stand
Love in the shadows waiting, hiding in the shadow waiting
Love in the shadows waiting for you, love in the shadows waiting, waiting for you.

Death turns in the shadows and they got to feel

Master, I’m gonna clutch you right where you stand
Love in the shadows waiting, hiding in the shadow waiting
Love in the shadows waiting for you, love in the shadows waiting, waiting for you.

Every Time The Sun Comes Up

Pace mine for for you
Hold my horses, patient
Hey man, tricks can't wait to hear my emotions

Every time the sun comes up, I'm in trouble
Every time the sun comes up, I'm in trouble

People say I'm a one-hit wonder
But what happens when I have two?
I washed your dishes, but I shitted in your bathroom

Even when the sun comes up, I'm in trouble
Even when the sun comes up, I'm in trouble

We broke your glasses, but covered our asses
Take time silently, feel real room hi-fi

Every time the sun comes up, I'm in trouble
Every time the sun comes up, I'm in trouble
Yeah, every time the sun comes up, I'm in trouble
Imagine when
Every time the sun comes up, I see double

Wild Way

I hate you
I hate you
I do
I hate that
you're the one who can
make me feel gorgeous
with just just a flick of your finger
it is that easy

yes there was a time
you didn't always get your way
back there where my heart
was not so easy to invade
when my battlements were strong
before the pilgrims came
don't forget you were the one
who loved my wild way

I hate you
I hate you
I do
I hate that
I turn into a kind
some kind of monster
with just just a flick of your finger
it is that easy

of course there was a time
you didn't always get your way
back there where my heart
was not so easy to invade
when my battlements were strong
before the pilgrims came
don't forget you were the one
who loved my wild way

I hate you
I hate you
I do
I hate that
you're the one who can
make me feel gorgeous
with just just a flick of your finger
it is that easy

to hate you
to hate you

Ponto de Fuga

Dúvidas e mil perguntas, dar um passo em frente e outro atrás
detritos espalhando pregos que de tábuas rasas se desmontam

Ficar junto da fogueira sabendo que ainda pode queimar
Os afectos que habituam, tanto dão como também tiram

a ferida quase cura, o tempo abrirá outra vez
num abraço que abeira o corpo, que distante tarda em estar

Corto à faca uma porta aberta
Fico à espera de um ponto de fuga

(Peixe: Avião)

Quase Um Quasar

Vai cometa
Exorbitando
Teu cabelo
esvoaçando
Juba gelo
No trapézio
É lantejoula
Desfolhando-se em confetti
Longe
Vaga-lume solitário
Longe

Dança corpo
Flor celeste
No berçário
Das estrelas
E eu menina
Beijo o céu com os olhos
Presa à terra pelo pés
Juntos
E penteio a tua crina
Juntos

A nossa sina é ser
Resina de estrela é quase
Quase, quase um quasar
Que anima
O coração do espaço

Killing Me

Mood swing
Have another drink
What’s that you said?
I see a side of you
Pass the eyes and through

Sticks and stones
Lucky clover
This carousel’s taking me home
Back of a taxi used
Ten more blocks to cruise, yeah, yeah

Now that I’m home
Outside’s in here
No longer with you
You created a space
I’ll take my rocket ship
And get the hell out of this
Nothing that I’m gonna miss
You’re killing me
You’re killing me
You’re killing me
You’re killing me

Time, hurry
Heal my every wound
Don’t burden me
Lead me to symphonies
I’m like a masterpiece

Gold beam
Dazzle every step
Time will bring
Sweet offering
Brand new
Nothing there to lose
Yeah, yeah

Now that I’m home
Outside’s in here
No longer with you
You created a space
I’ll take my rocket ship
And get the hell out of this
Nothing that I’m gonna miss
But you’re killing me
You’re killing me
You’re killing me
You’re killing me

Now that I’m home
Outside’s in here
No longer with you
You created a space
I’ll take my rocket ship
And get the hell out of this
I’m makin’ a spider howl
Watch you killing me

Weight Of Love

I used to think darling you'd never do nothing
But you are always up to something
Always out and running
I got to think those days are coming
Look at you,
Now nobody protect you
The only one had forget you
You'd be on my mind
Don't give yourself away
To the Weight of Love
We'd be on your side
Don't give yourself away
To the weight of
Weight of Love

Dance all night, 'cause people they don't wanna be lonely
Never wanna be lonely
They don't wanna be an only one
You had a thing, no one could ever be sure of
Never ever had a pure love
And never knew cure from
You'd be on my mind
Don't give yourself away
To the Weight of Love
We'd be on your side
Don't give yourself away
To the weight of
Weight of Love

(The Black Keys)
