night 313 - Sóley - Kill The Clown




we locked ourself inside.
the clown was out of control.
he stood there with his knife,
but we had spoons and fire.

before he came to us,
he went to a house of mirrors.
his face, he painted white.
he came while no one knew him.
kill the clown.
he's so unfair.

his eyes were blue and green.
his mouth was red and yellow.
we opened up the door
and ran outside to fight him.
kill the clown.
he's so unfair.
let him die.

night 312 - Ane Brun - To Let Myself Go




To let myself go
To let myself flow
Is the only way of being
There's no use telling me
There's no use taking a step back
A step back for me...

night 311 - Works Better on Paper - Let's Buy Happiness




Stamp in the corner ,
Address in the other,
You open the Letter my love is on paper

Paper

The counterpart had impact,
but the lesson was lost,
far to frail to hail another, hold out for most cost,
sombre existance for something not there.
debase all trace of the feeling that used to be there

Stamp in the corner ,
Address in the other,
You open the Letter my love is on paper

Paper

For hours,seen together in the roll of my swathe,
trying so hard to see anything, that I can barely make out shapes
one ????????? short of a relapse, of something not there.
The cold labour over a feeling that used to be there.

Stamp in the corner ,
Address in the other,
You open the Letter my love is on paper

Paper

cynical in most things, in hope I will wait.
works better down on paper than when we
When we talk straigh

night 310 - Birdy - Shelter




I find shelter in this way
Under cover, hide away
Can you hear when I say
I have never felt this way

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

Could I be, was I there
It felt so crystal in the air
I still want to drown whenever you leave
Please teach me gently how to breathe

And I'll cross oceans like never before
So you can feel the way I feel it too
Birdy Shelter lyrics found on http://www.directlyrics.com/birdy-shelter-lyrics.html

And I'll send images back at you
So you can see the way I feel it too

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

night 309 - The Walkmen - I Lost You




Drive on
Drive on
The highway’s bright and long
The river’s overflowing
The houses burning down

Drive on
Drive on
The engine hums along
We kiss goodbye and drank up
Some mouths before our tongues
We kiss goodbye and drank up
I’ll miss you when you’re gone

So throw me a line
So throw me a line

The windows are shaking and so are my bones
The world’s going round
Throw me a rope

The trumpet and trombone
Still echoing in the hall
And bells ringing along the dam

So hang onto me
Hang onto me
The world’s going round
And time’s cutting out
The headlights are stinging all over the road
Throw me a rope
Throw me a rope

I knew you when I was young

I wish you were still along
I waited a long time
All for you
I waited a long time
I lost you

I was sleeping in the backseat
When I got home

I lost you

night 308 - Wye Oak - Civilian




I am nothing without pretend
I know my faults
Can't live with them
I am nothing without a man
I know my thoughts
But I can't hide them

I still keep my baby teeth
In the bedside table with my jewelry
You still sleep in the bed with me,
My jewelry, and my baby teeth

I don't need another friend
When most of them
I can barely keep up with
I'm perfectly able to hold my own hand,
but I still can't kiss my own neck

I wanted to give you everything
but I still stand in awe of superficial things
I wanted to love you like my mother's mother's mothers did
Civilian

307 - RYAN ADAMS |'m Afraid Not Scared

Jak dobrze, że istnieją tacy smutni kowboje z gitarą, których piosenki tak doskonale uzewnętrzniają i neutralizują wszystkie moje lęki i frustracje, bo gdybym miała wyrażać je sama, musiałabym chyba dokonać jakiejś spektakularnej zbrodni na masową skalę.





Look at this ocean with everyone drowning
Idiots screaming and everyone sinking in slowly
We're surrounded
In the yellow lights of the city wasted as bodies
In bed with somebody a touch away with nothing to do
We're surrounded
I'm really dying here
I'm really dying here
And I'm afraid, no I'm scared

She started freezing, lungs all collapsing
The momentum is passing, but the moment is eating us whole
We're surrounded
Put the guns in the water, they're turning to vodka
Triggering nothing we're sinking the sea takes the ship
And I'm really dying in here
I'm really dying in here
I'm afraid. I'm afraid. No, I'm scared. No I'm scared.
I'm just scared. Just let me down.

I'm getting really cold and I'm cold and I'm looking at you
You're not moving
I'm getting really cold and I'm cold and I'm looking at you
You're not moving
I'm getting really cold and I'm cold and I'm looking at you
And you're not moving

night 306 - Red House Painters - Mistress (piano version)



the light color in the room
the sunshine seeping in
doesn't mix with the black of
death's angel looming in
i've had enough of the
brutal beatings and name callings
to lose me to this bed
bruised internally
eternally
your praise little gifts you spent your money
and stuffed me with
didn't amount to anything
the attention i need is much more serious
a kind of weight you couldn't lift
even if your cheap career
depended on it
i need someone much more
mysterious
to be my miss
to be my mistress

night 305 - O'Brother - Ascension




We sat in silence.
I spoke of leaving.
And from the floor, I tried to crawl away
with my arms all but succeeding.
I'll water your grave and watch it grow
into a bed of lies you sewed in life
living long after you are gone.

All in all, we're dust and bone
so we'll dig our graves before we're old enough to
lie in them.
We'll spread our ash amongst the dirt
to soil the seed that breeds the earth
so we can live again.

So wait for me to bloom. x2

Stay.
We're a garden fed from the blood
left in your veins
So stay with me or I'll shrivel and dry out.

Wait for me to bloom.

Stay.
We're a garden fed from the blood
left in your veins
So stay with me or I'll shrivel and dry out.

Stay.Stay. Stay.

night 304 - Jack White - Love Is Blindness (U2 Cover)




Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
Take my heart
It's is blindness
In a parked car
In a crowded street
You see your love
Made complete
Thread is ripping
The knot is slipping
Love is blindness
Love is clockworks
And cold steel
Fingers to numb to feel
Squeeze the handle
Blow out the candle
Love is blindness
Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
Take my heart
It's blindness
A little death
Without mourning
No call
And no warning
Baby a dangerous idea
That almost makes sense
Love is drowning
In a deep well
All the secrets
And no one to tell
Take the money
Honey
It's blindness
Love is blindness
I don't want to see
Won't you wrap the night
Around me
Take my heart
It's... blindness

night 303 - Gabriel Bruce - Sleep Paralysis




You wouldn’t believe the things that I have seen / I wouldn’t expect you to, you’ve never been asleep / I got this feeling I were dead / And there’s nothing more / Across the sea, there was perfect symmetry / There’s an island just like this / A person just like me / You couldn’t conceive, the possibilities.

night 301 - Stateless 'I'm On Fire' feat. Shara Worden

night 300 - The Veils - "Sun Gangs"





Some say you'll never
be gone forever
some say there's music where you go

I've no faith in my heart
tell two apart
ocean above from sky below

Where I am going you can't save me

Don't wake me honey
for love nor money
I have no more I can pay
'til we're here alone
and the seeds have been sown
and night returns to break the day

Where I am going you can't save me

Where I am going you can't save me, yeah

Seed a dreamin
boxed a screamin
the world to love
the right to know

Now I hear violence(Violins?)
out from the silence
don't want me love?
then let me go


Where I am going you can't save me

Where I am going you can't save me

Where I am going you can't save me, yet

night 296 - Okkervil River - A Stone

Generalnie w piosence chodzi o to, że kobiety najczęściej pragną jednocześnie co najmniej dwóch wykluczających się nawzajem rzeczy...





Hot breath,
Rough skin,
Warm laughs and smiling,
The lovliest words,
Whispered and meant
You like all these things.

But, though you like all these things,
You love a stone.
You love a stone,
Because it's smooth and it's cold.
And you'd love most,
To be told,
That it's all your own.

You love white veins,
You love hard grey,
The heaviest weight,
The clumsiest shape,
The earthiest smell,
The hollowest tone,
You love a stone.

And I'm found too fast,
Called too fond of flames,
And I'm phoning my friends,
And I'm shouldering the blame,
While you're picking pebbles,
Out of the drain,
Miles ago.
And you're out singing songs,
And I'm down shouting names,
At the flickerless screen,
Going fucking insane.
Am I losing my cool,
Overstating my case?
Well, baby what can I say?

You know I never claimed,
That I was a stone.
And you love a stone.
You love white veins,
You love hard grey,
The heaviest weight,
The clumsiest shape,
The earthiest smell,
The hollowest tone,
You love a stone.

You love a stone,
Because it's dark and it's old,
And if it could start,
Being alive,
You'd stop living alone.

And I think I believe that,
If stones could dream,
They'd dream of being laid,
Side-by-side,
Piece-by-piece,
And turned into a castle,
For some towering queen,
They're unable to know.

And when that queen's daughter
Came of age,
I think she'd be lovely
And stubborn and brave,
And suitors would journey,
From kingdoms away,
Just to make themselves known.

And I think that I know,
The bitter dismay,
Of a lover who brought,
Fresh brouquets every day,
When she turned him away,
To remember some knave,
Who once gave,
Just one rose,
One day,
Years ago.

night 295 - The Brian Jonestown Massacre-Open Heart Surgery

Tekst piosenki wydaje się być raczej optymistycznym i przepełnionym nadzieją, jednak wsłuchując się w żałosne zawodzenie wokalisty podskórnie wyczuwamy, że osoba do której kierowane jest miłosne wyznanie ma je głęboko w... niewłaściwym miejscu i nic dobrego z tej całej operacji na otwartym sercu nie wyniknie. Poza dobrą, smutną piosenką oczywiście.





i feel like letting you know
how much i love you today
i feel like letting it show
showing you rightly now
and never going away

i know you're feeling real low
calling on all my
i want to make it ok
i want to show you i know
and it will be all fine
i want to take it away
take it away

i thought i'ld write you this song
maybe i'd make you smile
and take your sadness away
hey
i want to show you i love
love love you a long time girl
i'm never going away
hey,
hey
hey

night 294 - PJ Harvey - Who Will Love Me Now




In the forest, is a monster
It has done terrible things
So in the wood, it's hiding
And this is the song it sings

Who will love me now?
Who will ever love me?
Who will say to me
"You are my desire, I set you free?"

(Who will love me now?)

Who will forgive and make me live again?
Who will bring me back to the world again?

In the forest, is a monster
And it looks so very much like me
Will someone hear me singing?
Please save me, please rescue me

Who will love me now?
Who will ever love me?
Who will say to me
"You are my desire, I set you free?"

Who will love me now?
Who will ever love me?
Who will say to me
"You are my desire, I set you free?"

(Who will love me now?)
(Who will ever love me?)

Who will love me now?
Who will ever love me?
Who will love me now?
Who will ever love me?
Who will love me now?
Who will ever love me?

night 293 The Black Keys - Lengths




tell me where you're goin
what is goin wrong
I felt you leavin
before you'd even gone
hold me now
never ever hold me again
no more talk
can take me from this pain I'm in
pain I'm in

see the moonlight shinin
on your window pane
see it leave you
as faithful as it came
please yourself so you
don't have to be afraid
make amends
or carry on another way
another way

tell me what you were thinkin
treat somebody so
the care he took
the lengths to which he'd go
coals are hot to walk
across without your shoes
but in the end
know that you got nothin to lose
nothing to lose

night 290 - Low - Especially Me



cry me a river
so i can float over to you
the bearer to deliver the news
i'm over the moon
and underfoot
all these elixirs would be moot

'cause if we knew where we belong
there'd be no doubt where we're from
but as it stands, we don't have a clue
especially me and probably you

you've fallen in a slumber
just wake one more time
to miss or put asunder
would be a crime
some songs feel like butter
some songs sound like cake
this little number is for your sake

'cause if we knew where we belong
there'd be no doubt where we're from
but as it stands, we don't have a clue
especially me and probably you

'cause if we knew where we belong
there'd be no doubt where we're from
but as it stands, we all need the truth
especially me and probably you
definitely you

night 289 - Of Monsters & Men - Love love love

Wbrew logice i na przekór prawom natury mój mięsień sercowy niebezpiecznie aktywizuje się zimową porą. Czas zaszyć się w mysiej norze i czekać aż mi przejdzie ;)




Maybe I’m a crook for stealing your heart away
And maybe I’m a crook for not caring for it
And maybe I’m a bad, bad, bad, bad person
Well baby, I know

So I think it’s best we both forget before we dwell on it
The way you held me so tight all through the night
It was near morning

Because you love, love, love when you know I can’t love
You love, love, love when you know I can’t love
You love, love, love when you know I can’t love, you...

And these fingertips, they’ll never run through your skin
Those bright blue eyes can only meet mine across a room
Filled with people that are less important than you

Because you love, love, love when you know I can’t love
You love, love, love when you know I can’t love
You love, love, love when you know I can’t love, you...

night 287 - dEUS-Twice ft. Greg Dulli




A promise that was never made
Implied from the beginning
And passion that had never failed
To convince us we were winning

Too smitten to be just a flirt
Too loose to be connected
I gave you less than you deserved
And less than you expected

Cause twice I set my mind on you
And twice I gave you nothing
Twice you showed me what to do
And twice it came to nothing

Beneath the surface of desire
You hope there's something sacred
Hallowed ground a holy fire
To warm us when we're naked

So tell me why you want to stay
You're so impatient anyway
For something that will never ever happen
You say come on let's pick a fight
With all that try to steal our light
From now it's you and me united
Tell me why am I so frightened
I don't know

Cause twice I set my mind on you
And twice I gave you nothing
Twice you showed me what to do
And twice it came to nothing

So tell me what we're gonna do
Feels like I'm stuck here in a loop
Of you and me and me and you
Forever
There's more that 20.000 ways
To end up in the same old place
Only one to get away
Only once you get a second chance
So why do you want to stay

That's the day you repeat the day

night 286 - Desire - Don't Call




You're gone and, babe, that's a good thing
I'm still here and looking for something
To come along, to come along

I know, I know, we both say the same things
I don't care, I don't care about winning
So don't call, don't call, to talk about nothing

So many times I waited for you
I figured it out and now we're through
I won't give up, I won't give in

I know, I know, we both say the same things
I don't care, I don't care about winning
So don't call, don't call, to talk about nothing

You're gone and, babe, that's a good thing
I've spent my days working for something
We don't give up, we don't give in

I know, I know, we both say the same things
I don't care, I don't care about winning
So don't call, don't call, to talk about nothing

You're gone
You're gone
You're gone and, babe, that's a good thing

night 285 - Sia - I go to sleep

Tęskliwość mnie dziś wzięła...





When I look up from my pillow
I dream you are there with me
Though you are far away
I know you’ll always be near to me
Yeah I go to sleep
And imagine that you’re there with me
I go to sleep
And imagine that you’re there with me
I look around me
And feel you are ever so close to me
Each tear that flows from my eye
Brings back memories of you to me
I go to sleep
And imagine that you’re there with me
I go to sleep
And imagine that you’re there with me
I was wrong, I will cry
I will love you till the day I die
You were all (or you alone?) you alone and no one else
You were meant for me
When morning comes again
I have the loneliness you left me
Each day drags by
Until finally my time descends on me
I go to sleep
And imagine that you’re there with me
I go to sleep
And imagine that you’re there with me

night 284 - "For Agent 13" by The Besnard Lakes



my baby, don't go
I never meant to feel that way
my baby, don't go
to be so haunted by a touch
my baby don't go
I'll play it back every day

my baby, don't go
nothing is fair in love and war
my baby, don't go
I'll write you a love song
my baby, don't go
I'll love you whenever I'm wrong

my baby, don't go
I play it back every day

it's your love, don't tell them what you know
they have ways of making you tell them
he messed up
forsaking our love

it's your life and it's your love

night 283 - Peggy Sue - The New Song




I dont know why you bail me out again
I dont know why I let you take my hand and then
You came along with your brand new song and you
Wore me out
You found me out, out.

I dont know how you wore me out again
I dont know why I let you take my hand and then
you came on strong with your age old song and you
wore me out
over and out

Still I find your
on my mind
your still singing the same song after all this time X2

I dont know how you wore me out again
I dont know why I let you I dont know how I let you
You came on strong with your age old song and you
You found me out you drowned me out you wear me out

night 282 - Slow club - Sorry about the doom




I agree you were right to say we're doomed
Cuz there isn't a chance that I'll get to be in your arms soon
Cuz I'm back on the road now
And there is nothing that we can do
I have to find a way to make the days pass soon

We spend our time looking for which one fits best
And in the morning I am waking
And I'm wondering how its me who ended up like this
Cuz I'm the one who said it would be easy
Now I'm the one whose feeling worse
Cuz I agreed that I would never be put first

And I know your heart is beating slow
And out of time with mine
So now I'll say goodbye

night 281 - Sad Song - Psapp

Na wstępie proponuję słuchać nie oglądając tego koszmarnego filmiku, niestety innej wersji tej piosenki nie znalazłam. "Happiest suicide song i've heard" - jak ktoś słusznie zauważył.




Everybody hates you
Won't tell you why
Letter from the doctor
Says you're gonna die

Cute little kittens
Drowned in a sack
Everybody screamin'
The sky turnin' black

I don't wanna live no more (x4)

"Peter just called to say he saw a slug eating a chip!"

A flashing light never stops flashing when you're watching it flash (x2)

We should drink less
We should eat more
We should go outside
We should drink less
We should eat more
We should be living better lives

I don't wanna live no more (x4)

night 280 - Butterfly Culture - Benjamin Francis Leftwich (Live from Maida Vale)




Even though a faded glow wont burn through all your bars.
He put out to put up
Even while your lightning smile was shaking in the smoke
Your head was full of hope
Because I am a member of the butterfly culture
Where we work and we take, we play and we pray to God
That the girl in that dress, will undress
And distress you with the way she moves

Even now when you know how to measure up the risk
You're still more tired of this
Even when the pills you take turn you to a ghost
You still spin around the most
Because I am a member of the butterfly culture
Where we we work and we take, we play and we pray to god
That the girl in that dress will undress
And distress you with the way she moves

I am a member of the butterfly culture
Where we work and we take, we play and we pray to god
That the girl in that dress will undress
And distress you with the way she move.

night 277 - Mice Parade - Double Dolphins On The Nickel - Dark Room

Smutna piosenka na wczoraj, niestety bez sensownego obrazka i bez fragmentu tekstu, bo chyba nikomu dotychczas nie udało się go spisać poprawnie. W zamian mamy uroczą Kristin na wokalu - niestety w ładnych koncertowych obrazkach zastępuje ją jakaś panna, która co prawda śpiewa wyraźnie, ale bez wyrazu. Generalnie w piosence chodzi o miłość, którą symbolizują dwa delfinki ze stopu metali zawierającego nikiel, który jak wiadomo silnie uczula i dlatego należy go unikać :) Wszystko jasne :)

ight 276 - Luke Temple - Only A Ghost




God only knows that you’ve got a lot of heart my dear
It’s written all over your face
And God only know that you’ve got a lot of plans my dear
So let’s pack up and get out of this place

You only know that you’ve got a lot of pain my dear
It’s eating you out from inside
And you only know that you’ve got a lot of past my dear
So lets hop in my car and lets ride

‘cause I’ve been here wondering and hoping and thinking when you would let me in
But you keep on running and hiding and drinking
I fear to the end

God only knows that you’ve got a lot of soul my dear
You can tell that you’ve got nothing to lose
And you only know that you got a lot to say my dear
But don’t speak ‘cause I’m already moved

And I know that you are led around in your dreams
Floating ten feet of the ground
But dreams are just dreams and God only knows
That one day you’ll have to come down

I only know that I’m in love with you dear\
But my heart caries a burdensome load
So don’t think twice ‘cause I’m just a ghost to you dear
I guess God only knows what God knows

night 275 - Dear Reader - Never Goes




It's not that she minded he'd had other lovers
Until that day she never dreamt of their faces
She took it for granted that he'd kissed them on their ears
Just why didn't he didn't, he didn't love her

Can you tell the moment a dream dies inside you?
Sudden and final and nobody warned you
Now X marks a death day in red on your calendar
It haunts to ensure that you always remember

You're alone, you're alone, you're alone (x2)

He stood in the doorway looking right through me
He lent in to kiss me, but I could sense it was a chore
He used to tell me that I was beautiful
But now he's not sure

That's when I realized I'm all alone
That's when I realized that alone never goes

I'm alone, I'm alone, I'm alone (x4)

night 273 - Gavin Bryars-Jesus' blood never failed me yet

Uwaga: jedna z najsmutniejszych piosenek świata, do tego z historią :) Gavin Bryars (kompozytor) na początku lat 70-tych wpółpracował z niejakim Alanem Powerem podczas kręcenia dokumentu o londyńskich bezdomnych i tam między innymi zarejestrowali włóczęgę śpiewającego znaną religijną pieśń. Ten materiał nie wszedł do filmu, ale zainspirował kompozytora do stworzenia kultowego dzieła. Swego czasu Tom Waits próbował się pod niego podłączyć z wokalem, ale tylko popsuł piosenkę. Niestety bezimienny kloszard nie doczekał sławy... :(

night 272 - The Bowerbirds - In our Talons

Taki hippisowski protest song w obronie naszych braci mniejszych :)




And the warblers sing: deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet!
And the sparrows sing: deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet!
Through the wheels, through the wheels on the interstate,
And hear no refrain.

And the beetles creep (deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet!)
On the crippled trees, (deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet!)
And they look down to where the soil must have been, wondering.

And no, you're not alone. No, my cousins, you're not alone.
You're in our talons now, and we're never letting go.

And the branches bend (deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet!)
To the growing sea. (deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet-deet!)
And they ask, and they ask it to spread their seeds,
For they know they're drowning.

And no, you're not alone. No, my cousins, you're not alone.
You're in our talons now, and we're never letting go.
You're in our headlights, frozen, and no, we're not stopping.
You may not believe, but even we were scared at first.
It takes a lot of nerve to destroy this wondrous earth.
We're only human; this at least we've learned.

night 270 - Margot & The Nuclear So and So's - A Children's Crusade On Acid

Children's Crusade to alternatywny tytuł Rzeźni Nr 5 Vonneguta. Margot od czasu do czasu wydaje na świat smętne ballady do popularnych seriali, ale zdarzają się jej również takie bardziej pokręcone dzieciaki, które po prostu kocham ♥





sarah, settle down
put your helmet on
walk these streets of gold
with cigarettes you hand rolled
i don't know you
and i don't owe you a thing
but i smile so hard it hurts
just when things get worse
you said you've woken from a dream
abandoned by your mother
could this be?

satan, settle done
keep your trousers on
you can warm the globe
but leave my wretched soul alone
i don't know you
and i don't owe you a thing
but the children lose their minds
in such uncertain times
and i'm woken from a dream
surrounded by my lovers
oh, woe is me!

and a hundred thousand times a day
the yellow lights turn red
and a hundred thousand miles away
i'm turning myself in
oh, christ, i am!

night 269 - Radiohead - I Will




I will
Lay me down
In a bunker
Underground
I won't let this happen to my children
Meet the real world coming out of your shell
With white elephants
Sitting ducks
I will
rise up
Little babies eyes eyes eyes eyes
Little babies eyes eyes eyes eyes
Little babies eyes eyes eyes eyes
Little babies eyes eyes eyes

night 268 - Apparat - Komponent




I wonder how long we can get away
Side by side, I'm stuck to my phony pride
Always craving for something missing

Never get it, I always try
Never get it, I'm always trying

Never really been down with someone
Everyone of us would wish to be.
Someday, not too far away, we'll be facing.

We never share what we hide, after all
We wanna share what we hide, after all

See you passing by everyday, yeah
We're living up time in the night
Everyone of us, deep inside wishes...

We would share what we hide, after all
We could share what we hide, after all
We could share what we hide, after all

night 267 - Loney Dear - Harm/Slow




I must have slept for many years
I feel asleep in the lion's mouth
I didn't mind the danger at all
It didn't do me no harm

I fell in love so easily
And I was asleep when the air was calm
I didn't mind the danger at all
And when I woke up it was gone

And I must have slept for many years
Cause I had forgotten how the mourning felt
I didn't mind the danger at all

I must have slept for many years
I feel asleep in the lion's mouth
I didn't mind the danger at all

I hardly see your face now
I've found a way to hide it
Time didn't pay kindness to me at all
Time didn't show kindness to me at all
I fell asleep in the midst
And it didn't do me no harm

I always walk alone now
I've found a way to hide it
Time didn't pay attention to me at all
Time didn.t show kindness to me at all
I fell asleep in the lands of I know you

That's how I fell from top of twelve stories to the ground
For the reasons I had
The ones I know
The ones I don't
For all I forgot
That is all I could do
That is how I want you

night 266 - Sol Seppy - enter one




After a storm
I want to be brave
And keep you warm
And not fade away
As we float from the shore
Into the light
Into the unknown
Like thousands of lanterns
Glowing with grace
In glorious silence
Descending through space
To a friend
A sister in need
Who is not alone
And they are surrounding her
And they will enfold her outstretched hand
In our love

Into the light
It's hard to believe
It's always been ours to give
And to receive
I want to be shameless like the sun
Moving into you
Entering light

Welcome
Insha'Allah, insha'Allah
Enter one amazing grace is pouring down
Fear not this light
We are of this light divine
So come
We move as one
Amazing grace is pouring down
Fear not this light
We are on this light divine
Welcome
Enter one

After a storm
I wanna let go
Of the things that I�ve done
Without any worry
I wanna come home
Into the light
Into the unknown
I want to be shameless
Like the sun
Moving into you
Enter light

Welcome
Insha'Allah, insha'Allah
Enter one
Amazing grace is pouring down
Fear not this light
We are on this light divine
So come
We move as one
Amazing grace is pouring down
Fear not this light
We are on this light divine
Welcome
Enter one

night 265 - Girls - End of the World






Why does the sun go on shining
Why does the sea rush to shore..
Why do the birds go on singing
Why do the stars glow above..
Why does my heart go on beating
Why do these eyes of mine cry
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when you said goodbye

night 263 - Moby - Wait For Me




I'm gonna ask you to look away
I love my hands but it hurts to pray
The life I have isn't what I'd seen
The sky is not blue and the field is not green

Wait for me (8x)


I'm gonna ask you to look away
My broken life will never stay
Try too hard and I always lack
Days are grey and the nights are black

Wait for me (7x)

night 262 - Secondsmile - Halfman




where do you go when you find yourselfs
in times like these
we're standing in the street rain
pours on us beneath the cruel winter sky
oh, why it's times like these
when on my knees
and we begging please don't leave

which wasn't that much actually
and if im going in it's where vulcan's blazing

do you still believe in me

night 261 - Dry the River - No Rest

Nuuuuda... znowu o miłości ;)




I used to be a king alone
Like Solomon or Rehoboam
And in this, a corvée day
Did jealous keep my picture frames
And everything did oxidate in place

But then it came a single sound
With astral nights and calcite
And algebra and symmetry
And none of this was lost on me
And I could see how still I'd been before

If I don't eat, I don't sleep at all
Like limbs in procession,
Like so many birds
Stampeding like oxen,
Our hearts are a herd

I loved you in the best
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the best

Did you see the light in my heart?
Did you see the sweat on my brow?
Did you see the fear in my heart?
Did you see me bleeding out?

I loved you in the best
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the best

night 260 - Flunk - Kemikal Girl

Blogger nadal pokazuje zaległości, więc w ramach ich nadrabiania drążymy w głąb Skandynawii i docieramy do Oslo (w Norwegii, jak mówi Wikipedia). Pozostajemy w temacie samotności, dorzucamy tylko deszcz i trochę chemii...



Choosing, losing
Finding my way through the rain
Losing, choosing
All of my thoughts go insane

Choosing, losing
Finding my way through the rain
Losing, choosing
All of my thoughts go insane

And I can't go, where I want to
And I can't go, where I want to

Choosing, losing
Finding my way through the rain
Losing, choosing
All of my thoughts go insane

Finding my way through the lonely days
It like rainy...
Finding my way through the lonely days
It's like rainy days
And I can't go, where I choose
I can't go, where I want to

Who would dare to bring me love?
Who would dare to bring me love?
Who would dare to bring me love?
Who would dare to bring me love?

Who would dare to bring me love?
Who would dare to bring me love?
Who would dare to bring me love?

night 259 - Husky Rescue - My Home Ghost

To, co lubimy najbardziej, czyli ambient-pop z Helsinek (Skandynawia rulezzz). Piosenka o domu na zadupiu, gdzie człowiek zaczyna gadać sam do siebie, czyli temat niezwykle mi bliski...




This is my home
The place where I'm lonely

This is my home
The place where I'm lonely

Ghost is not real

This is my home
The one and sweet home

Ghost is not real

This is my home
I feel someone hold me

Ghost is not real

This is my home
The little girl told me

Ghost is not real
Ghost is not real

This is my home
The place where I'm lonely

night 258 - Woven Hand: Into the piano




Behind a door
Hand to face
Conscience is the wound
His hand for me a sovereign tone
I pray him come I pray him soon

There's a wolf in the piano
On the white keys
Teeth on the back
Dry bones under animal skin am I
No tears from this eye

I feel nothing
I hear no voice

Behind a door
Hand to face
Conscience is the wound
His hand for me a sovereign tune
I pray him come I pray him soon

night 257 - Danger Mouse & Sparklehorse feat. David Lynch - Dark Night Of The Soul




Dark dream world
All alone
Shadows movin'
Shadows have long gone by
Shadows have long gone by
Dark night of the soul

Our souls
Time slippin' by
I call out your pain
All alone
Shadows movin'
Shadows movin'
Shadows have long gone by
Dark night of the soul

If you had only liked my face
Where are you baby
Where are you baby
Dark dream world
Shadows have long gone by
Dark night of the soul

Distant bell ringing
But steps echo
No one on these streets
Callin' out your name
It's a dream world
Dark dream world
Dark night of the soul

night 256 - Warpaint, "Elephants"




I'll break your heart
to keep you far from where
all dangers start
and atmosphere
gets crazy light
where every breath just bites
into the soft
space of calm about you

They call me a thief
They call me a thief
Call me a thief
Call me a thief
Common thief
Common thief
Common thief
Call me
Call me

I know that you're not here, that you're not here
Sort of lost without you
I hope that you'll find all there is that you want
is inside you now

I'll break your heart
to keep you far from where
all danger starts
I'm on my way
I'm on my way down


I know that you're not, that you're not here
Sort of lost without you
I hope that you find all there is that you want
is inside you now
Now...

I know that
You're not here
I wonder where you are

In the dark we are waiting for you
With your dying need for their attention
Hold on tight now, we won't let you fall

We are waiting for you
With your dying need for their attention
Hold on tight now, we won't let you fall...

night 255 - Twin Shadow - 'Forget' (4AD Session)





They'll give us something
they'll give us so much to forget
Or enough rope to deal with it

They'll give us something
they'll give us so much to forget
Or enough rope to deal with it

With pencil and light
You heard your love again
you wrestled your nightmares
the sweat in your bedsheets

This is all of it
this is everything
I'm wanting to forget

When winter sets in
it has a way of crystal-
lizing the bad times
The fevers the heartaches

This is all of it
this is everyone
I'm wanting to forget

They'll give us something
they'll give us so much to forget
Or enough rope to deal with it

They'll give us something
they'll give us so much to forget
Or enough rope to deal with it

With pencil and light
You heard your love again
you wrestled your nightmares
the sweat in your bedsheets

This is all of it
this is everything
I'm wanting to forget

night 254 - Destroyer - Bay of Pigs

Z serii: "czego nie zobaczyłam na Offie". Destroyer przegrał definitywnie z Xiu Xiu. Jednocześnie żałuję i nie żałuję.





Soon.
Soon.
Listen, I've been drinking
as our house lies in ruin.
I don't know what I'm doing
alone in the dark
at the park or at the pier,
watching ships disappear in the rain.
The world's just bones.
The world is black stones dressed up in the rain
with no place to go but home-
just like Nance.
On a night like this, why, she's pro-stars, pro-sky.
All lit up and sick of fighting
beneath the diseased lighting of the discotheque at night.
It don't mean a thing. It never means a thing.
It don't mean a thing. It never means a thing.
It's got that swing.
I've seen it all. I've seen it all.
Magnolia's a girl. Her heart's made of wood.
As apocalypses go, that's pretty good.
Sha-la-la, wouldn't you say?
Please remove your spurs.
Come to think of it, remove your antlers.
Haven't seen you for ages.
I still fly into rages at the mention of your name,
Christine White.
I think about you often, off in the desert,
laughing your head off in the Forest of the Night.
Say a prayer for the light.
So now I live well. I live in the mine.
I'm still slinging mud at the towers all the time.
I took a walk
and threw up in an English Garden.
I was born in the North, but my father's from the South.
Love is a political beast with jaws for a mouth. I don't care!
You're upset- and have every right to be.
Regretfully, you decline.
Every night was a waste of time.
Every night. Every night. Every night.
You were on the side of good.
I was inside of the sea's guts,
a crumbling beauty trapped in a river of ice.
A crumbling beauty trapped in Paradise,
oh yes, it was Paradise!
The tide comes in and the tide goes out again.
I suppose this is the kind of thing we see every day.
The tide comes in. The tide goes away.
Oh, the tide comes in. Yeah, the tide. Yes, the tide.
A ransom note written on the night sky above
reminds me what-in-particular about this wine I love.
Like a punctured beast, better-off dead,
compliments going to my head:
La-da-da, la-da-da!
And speaking of my mind (the Sunflower),
and speaking of a world turning sour on you,
I was twenty years old in 1992.
I was bathed in golden sunlight, alright?
I was ripped on dope. You were a ray of sunshine.
I was a hopeless romantic. You were swine.
You've got to spend money to make money.
You've got to stop calling me "honey".
Oh world! You fucking explosion that turns us around!
The searchlight slumps over, so sick of the night,
and the kids on the boats, busted in the shipyard
going down, down, down, down, down, down, down.
You traveled light (all night, every night),
to arrive at the conclusion
of the world's inutterable secret,
and you shut your mouth.
I've seen it all. I've seen it all. I've seen it all.
Free and easy. Gentle. Gentle.
The wind through the trees makes you mental for me.
Nancy, in a state of crisis, on a cloud.
Soon. Soon.

night 253 - Low - Murderer




One more thing before I go
One more thing I'll ask you Lord
You may need a murderer
Someone to do your dirty work

Don't act so innocent
I've seen you pound your fist into the earth
And I've read your book
It seems that you could use another fool
Well I'm cruel
And I look right through

You must have more important things to do
So if you need a murderer
Someone to do your dirty work

night 252 - Casiotone for the Painfully Alone - Subway Home




it gets worse before it gets better
that's what your best friend said in the letter
all the pictures are still on the shelf
& you're barely making rent by yourself
your mom is worried for your health

you said it right from the start
these sorts of things fall apart

you take the subway home after work
from your job as a retail clerk
you're spending all the money you've saved
records keep the quiet away
up all night and sleep all day

he said it right from the start
these sorts of things fall apart

night 251 - Carissa's Wierd- Silently leaving the room




silently leaving the room
gathering your thoughts from the floor
hopefully no one will hear you
silently closing the door
down the long stairs to the hall
out to the streets where you'll find
rumored accounts and hearsay
was it me who acted that way
is it you who should stay
I don't recall ever acting that way
was it you who should've stayed
the truth was deceiving
when the hosts of the evening
found the ghost that was bleeding
drops of blood from the ceiling
everyone was laughing, we all prayed for a favor
that the ghost would entertain us with some songs and some notes
but by the stains of his blood covered all the wood floors
opened all of the windows and all of the doors
broke all of the bottles on streets down below
some blood was frozen
blessed by wounded love
when the ice skates came on the girls finally sang songs
to the tunes of the laughter
while silently leaving the room

night 250 - Sunset Rubdown - Us Ones In Between

Trudno powiedzieć który tekst jest lepszy: tekst piosenki, czy tekst klipu...




You are a waterfall
Waiting inside a well
You are a wrecking ball
Before the building fell
And every lightning rod
Has got to watch the storm cloud come.

And I've heard of pious men
And I've heard of dirty fiends
But you don't often hear
Of us ones in between
And I've heard of creatures
Who eat their babies;
And I wonder if they stop
To think about the taste.

I saw the sun go down
Outside of Arkansas;
And I saw the sun come up
Somewhere in Illinois.
And in the darkness
I taught myself to hate.
But where were you, oh where were you?
And where the fuck did the sun go?

And I am a creature.
And I am survivin'.
And I want to be alone
But I want your body.
So when you eat me,
Mother and baby,
Oh baby, mother me,
Before you eat me.

And you should always pass
When you get the inside lane.
Don't pull your hair out;
I won't pull my hair out.
For I have never seen the sun
That did not bury his fears in the side of the world.
And the day is done.

You are a waterfall
Waiting inside a well
You are a wrecking ball
Before the building fell
And I will mutter like a lover
Who speaks in tongues, oh he speaks in tongues.
Oh I speak in tongues.

(She's your mother; she's got a lovely tongue.)

night 249 - Bon Iver - Flume - with My Brightest Diamond




I am my mother's only one
It's enough

I wear my garment so it shows
Now you know

Only love is all maroon
Gluey feathers on a flume
Sky is womb and she's the moon

I am my mother on the wall, with us all
I move in water, shore to shore
Nothing's more

Only love is all maroon
Lapping lakes like leary loons
Leaving rope burns
Reddish ruse

Only love is all maroon
Gluey feathers on a flume
Sky is womb and she's the moon

night 248 - Asobi Seksu - Stay




If you say stay, then you know I'll stay
How can I wait when it feels that way?
Oh, I want to

If you say stay, then you know I'll say
"How can I wait when it feels that way?"
Oh, I want to

If you say stay, then you know I'll stay
How can I wait when it feels that way?
Oh, I want to
Tell me to leave
How I want to

If you say stay, then you know I'll stay
How can I wait when it feels that way?
How I want to

night 247 - Other Lives - E Minor




I forgot something of younger days when there were no cares
Clouds appear lit that made me ask how their lives could have been spent

Carelessly wasting our days
Inquires of what is the way
With no reply

When you were young there's a lightness around you, the world turns
But when you take back all the things that you've earned you find nothing at all

Carelessly wasting our days
Inquires of what is the way
With no reply

Where did it go now
All that you thought was worth a fight
It's all but become just
A passing thought in spite

Don't let it go now
Our lives could be much more than this
Let go and find it

night 246 - Grizzly Bear - All We Ask

Ja tam nie przepadam za niedźwiedziami, ale może ktoś akurat lubi. A ta piosenka jest nawet znośna i smutna.



In this old house, I’m not alone
In a bedroom, a telephone

You made a call and I just stood by
I stripped the sheets and emptied out the sty.

And the crowds that light the carnival
Calling us home
Calling us home

And all we want's another voice
To lead us along
To lead us along
Lead us along

Even wasting my time with you doesn’t matter if I think it through

You took the car around another bend
Ran it in the ground, let’s pretend.

And the crowds that light the carnival
Calling us home
Calling us home

And all we want's another voice
To lead us along
To lead us along
Lead us along

I can’t get out of what I’m into with you. [4x]

night 242 - Antony and The Johnsons - Soft Black Stars (live)




Little children snuggle under soft black stars
And if you look into their eyes soft black stars
Deliver them from the book and the letter and the word
And let them read the silence bathed in soft black stars
Let them trace the raindrops under soft black stars
Let them follow whispers and scare away the night
Let them kiss the featherbreath of soft black stars
And let them ride their horses licked by the wind and the snow
And tip-toe into twilight where we all one day will go
Caressed with tendrils and with no fear at all
Their faces shining river gold washed by soft black stars
And angels' wings shall soothe their cares
And all the birds shall sing at dawn
Blessed and wet with joy
You and i will meet one day
Under the night sky lit by soft black stars

night 241 - Portugal The Man - AKA M80 The Wolf





I jeszcze wersja akustyczna, bo uwielbiam ten kawałek:





"Through crooked teeth and mouthed up ties
They spit you up river just like all those lions
That walked the banks

They said, "Paint me that river
And would you only use blues
Brilliant big black mouth and
Lengths of pines that route the river through
Through and through"

Fashion, fashion ballrooms of the leaves
We’d like to watch the ghosts dance
We’d like to watch the ghosts dance

"Paint me that arm
That lies directly over mountains
Where the glaciers climb so tall.
One absent of the scars passing boats and ships and oars
Tend to leave the veins will be the tributaries."

All the sounds of the ocean, the ocean.

Fashion, fashion ballrooms of the leaves
We’d like to watch the ghosts dance
We’d like to watch the ghosts dance

Fashion, fashion ballrooms of the leaves
We’d like to watch the ghosts dance
We’d like to watch the ghosts dance

I am but a man
But a proud, proud man
But a proud, proud man
Silver bells that line the way
Baited trails we’ll find you there
Silver bells that line the way
Baited trails we’ll find you there
I am but a man
But a proud, proud man
But a proud, proud man

night 240 - Rage against the machine - Beautiful World

Devo cover.




It's a beautiful world we live in
A sweet romantic place
Beautiful people everywhere
The way they show they care makes me want to say
It's a beautiful world
Oh what a beautiful world
For you

It's a wonderful time to be here
It's nice to be alive
Wonderful people everywhere
The way they comb their hair makes me want to say
It's a wonderful place
Oh what a wonderful place
For you, for you, for you, for you, for you, for you, not me

night 239 - The National - Cardinal Song.




never look her in the eyes
never tell the truth
if she knows your paper
you know she'll have to burn you

never tell the one you want that you do
save it for the deathbed
when you know you kept her wanting you

and do everything she'd never do

fall asleep with stranger's wives
the wild wives of unknown men
good for you, you've just become
just another one of them

never say you miss her
never say a word

and do everything she'd never do

don't let her see your cardinal eyes
don't let her see your cardinal eyes

let her treat you like a criminal
so you can treat her like a priest
girls forgive my human mind
girls forgive me one more time

never tell the one you love that you do
save it for the deathbed

and do everything she'd never do

don't let her see your cardinal eyes
don't let her see your cardinal eyes

jesus christ you have confused me
cornered, wasted, blessed and used me
forgive me girls i am confused
stiff and pissed and lost and loose

jesus christ you have confused me
cornered, wasted, blessed and used me
forgive me girls i am confused
stiff and pissed and lost and loose

night 238 - Beautiful Drug - Thievery Corporation



Oh my love
It's not time for us to say
Our farewell
Not to deny ourselves
From ourselves

And with the time
The season passes
Once again
Memories that hang
In autumn's wind
Memories that hang
Once again

You are
The drug in my veins
And I'm waiting
To feel it again
And I'm waiting
To feel it again, again...

Through the years
Love radiates throughout
Life's charade
Shines through everything
That remains unsaid
Shines through everything
That remains unsaid

You are the drug in my veins
And I'm waiting to feel it again
You are the drug in my veins
And I'm waiting to feel it again...

night 237 - Perfume Genius - Lookout, Lookout




Mary, Mary Bell
with an upper-case M
All your neighbors know
what your mother sells
But you carved out a name
for yourself

Look out, look out
There are murders about

Guinea pig hair
and a twisted mouth
Through a hole to the railway
And Brian's face down
Keep your wits
He will not be missed
He didn't have a family to begin with

Look out, look out
There are murders about

night 236 - Sea Song - Doves




Drive with me
Do the things you won't believe
Drive with me
Past the city and down to sea
Crushing dreams
Leave me be
I cannot sleep

Drive with me
Past the city and down to sea
Crushing dreams
Leave in peace
Let me be

Oh, it's ingrained
It's ingrained in me
Oh, I soothe my pain
It's ingrained in me

Drive with me
Drive with me

night 235 - Said the Whale My Government Heart

Nadal w ramach nadrabiania zaległości tym razem bluesik w męskim wydaniu. Jak widać na załączonym materiale audiowizualnym, chłopcy o złamanych sercach awanturują się trochę głośniej i bardziej agresywnie niż dziewczynki...




I am a secret government agent armed with lies
About secret government things
I have secret government documents that could knock you dead
From your regular citizen lives
And I'll break into your regular citizen homes with my government knives

I do regular citizen things, but that's where it ends
'Cause my secret government mind is a rare breed
I can't love, I can't feel or have passion but I don't mind
'Cause my secret government facts tell me
Despite what many normal citizens say
Love causes pain and pain hurts and now passion is dead

Before I became a secret agent spy
I was put on this earth with a regular life
Smiling and laughing and singing away
But I could not keep my curious mind at bay
I set out to answer a question of mine
About human heart versus rational mind
See, I thought if I planted my heart in the ground
I could grow a heart tree and spread my love around
I enlisted the help of a very close friend
And we ripped out my heart so the test could begin

And we watered my heart
And we let the sun feed it vitamins
And we waited for that sprout
And I dug up my heart and I found it was nothing but dirt
(My heart had become the earth)

Now I'm a secret government agent armed with a past
About regular citizen life
I can't love, I can't feel or have passion
But I don't mind, 'cause you can't break my government heart

You cannot break my secret agent heart ever again

night 234 - Taken By Trees - "To Lose Someone"




i lost you in the crowd
in that unfamiliar town
they found your bag in the river
where hardly no one goes

i had so much to tell you
but it never came to words
i wish i would have told you
that no one can take your place

night 233 - Emmy The Great - "War"




The dream that i have is always the same
a foot falls like an echo of a step i didn't take
and i see you coming in like you were never gone,
tell me, why did i wake?
Here in the world i was hiding from,
they're expecting it to rain

they say that the winter clears the drains
that time heals all things
and they said that the thought of you would fade, well i see nothing change.

and the dream that i have, breaks just like the day
i walk along the shore,
i take a picture of the waves
and then i throw it to the floor,
i say why did i wake?
Here in the world there is nothing more than your absence

now the sky is turning grey
now the birds have left the bay
now time is shrinking and they
said that the thought of you would fade
well I don't feel that way.

and hey, do you remember me the way
that i remember you?
and every movement of the waves,
oh they replaced the train
all the people went away, and i feel nothing
they say that winter clears the drains
well i dream nightly.. of sunshine

night 232 - Liam Finn - "Second Chance"




Sew the seeds
Sew the seeds to life by packing up to make it right
And all I need
All I need to know
Are you too proud to let it go?

Remember me
Well honestly I don't remember who you are

So it seems
And so it seems tonight, you've got that wild look in your eye
What do you need
What do you need to prove?
The woman that you turn into

Remember me
Well honestly I don't remember who you are
The memory has never been the best, you want a second chance

You stand around your haunted home
Those demons won't leave you alone
Don't forget me when you grow old

Remember me
Well honestly I don't remember who you are

Remember me
Well honestly i don't remember who you are
The memory has never been the best, you want a second chance

You stand around your haunted home
Those demons won't leave you alone
Don't forget me when you grow old

Rememember remember

night 231 - Mumford & Sons - White Blank Page (Bookshop Sessions)




Can you lie next to her
And give her your heart, your heart
As well as your body
And can you lie next to her
And confess your love, your love
As well as your folly
And can you kneel before the king
And say I'm clean, I'm clean

Chorus:
But tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with all my heart
Oh tell me now, where was my fault
In loving you with all my heart

A white blank page and a swelling rage, rage
You did not think when you sent me to the brink, the brink
You desired my attention but denied my affections, my affections

Chorus

Lead me to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life
Lead me to the truth and I will follow you with my whole life

night 230 - The Flaming Lips - Ego Tripping at the Gates of Hell




I was waiting on a moment
But the moment never came
All the billion other moments
We're just slipping all away
I must have been tripping
Just ego tripping

I was wanting you to love me
But your love it never came
All the other love around me
Was just wasting all away
I must have been tripping
Just ego tripping

I was waiting on a moment
But the moment never came
But the moment never came

night 229 - Tame Impala - Solitude is Bliss




Cracks in the pavement underneath my shoe
I care less and less about and less about you
No one else around to look at me
So I can look at my shadow as much as I please

All the kicks that I can't compare to
Making friends like they're all supposed to

You will never come close to how I feel (x2)

Space around me where my soul can breathe
I've got body that my mind can leave
Nothing else matters, I don't care what I miss
Company's okay
Solitude is bliss

There's a party in my head and no one is invited

And you will never come close to how I feel (x2)

Movement doesn't flow
Quite like it does when I'm alone
I'll be the one who's free
You and all your friends
Can watch me, today

Don't ask me how you're supposed to feel

You will never come close to how I feel (x4 fade out)

night 228 - Vashti Bunyan - Train Song





Travelling north, travelling north to find you
Train wheels beating, the wind in my eyes
Don't even know what I'll say when find you
Call out your name love, dont be surprised

It's so many miles and so long since I've met you
Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you
But suddenly now I know where I belong
It's many hundred miles and it won't be long

It wont be long
It wont be long
It wont be long

Nothing at all in my head to say to you
Only the beat of the train I'm on
Nothing I've learnt all my life on the way to you
Only our love that's over and gone

It's so many miles and so long since I've met you
Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you
But suddenly now I know where I belong
It's many hundred miles and it won't be long

It wont be long
It wont be long
It wont be long

night 227 - Alice In Chains - Nutshell




We chase misprinted lies
We face the path of time
And yet I fight
And yet I fight
This battle all alone
No one to cry to
No place to call home

Oooh...Oooh...
Oooh...Oooh...

My gift of self is raped
My privacy is raked
And yet I find
And yet I find
Repeating in my head
If I can't be my own
I'd feel better dead

Oooh...Oooh...
Oooh...Oooh...

night 226 - Hole - Dying




You've seen the crippled dance
Give me your money baby, now's your chance
Your lies like cyanide

I am so dumb
Just beam me up
I've had it all forever
I've had enough

Remember, you promised me...
I'm dying, I'm dying please
I want to, I need to be...
Under your skin

Our love is quicksand, so easy to drown
They steal the gravity out from moving ground

Remember, you promised me...
I'm dying, I'm dying please
I want to I need to be...
Under your skin

And now I understand
You leave with everything
You leave with everything I am
In the rain

And I now I know that love is dead
You come to bury me
There's nothing left here to pretend..

Remember you promised me...
I'm dying, I'm dying please
I want to, I need to be...
Under your skin

I'm dying I'm dying Please
I'm dying I'm dying Please
I'm dying I'm dying Please
Under your skin
Under your skin

night 225 - Skindive No more good guys




I died today,
but I'm still breathing,
bleeding,
for now,
I'm broken.

You left me here,
Capsized and sinking,
thinking, right now,
there's no more good guys.

You left me standing here,
alone and colder,
I hope that some day soon,
the pain inside will stop.

You died today,
but you're still breathing,
in my mind,
that is,
there's no more good guys.

You left me standing here,
alone and colder,
I hope that some day soon,
the pain inside will stop
I hoped you'd see me,
I hoped you'd understand,
Or crucify me for my failings,
my cruel ambition,
hardly justified,
and the pain inside will ... stop.

night 224 - Dandy Warhols - Sleep

Spać...




Well I could sleep forever, but it's of her I dream.
If I could sleep forever, I could forget about everything.
If I could sleep forever.
If I could sleep forever.
If I could sleep forever.

night 223 - CAKE - "Friend Is A Four Letter Word"

night 222 - Dirge - Death in Vegas

Nie ma tekstu, jest piosenka.

night 221 - Iron & Wine - Cinder and Smoke

Miałam nie komentować tej piosenki, ale generalnie chodzi o taki rodzaj ironii losu, kiedy najpierw jesteś smutny, a potem uświadamiasz sobie, że w gruncie rzeczy wygrałeś.

night 220 - Silversun Pickups - Booksmart Devil




So believe
So believe
In streetwise angel

So believe
So believe
In booksmart devil

So retreat
So retreat
From land-locked lover
With anchored armor

Sobering
Sobering

So believe
So believe
In streetwise angel
In booksmart devil

Sobering
Sobering
Sobering
Sobering

night 219 - Murder By Death - I'm Afraid of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf




I didn't mean to make you feel out of place
by the comments on your clothing
or the makeup on your face
I didn't mean to preempt the chase
you're the drama queen of every scene
perfectly out of place
so you cry yourself to sleep
on your blanket of snow
With your tiara of barbie doll heads
and your arms crossed for a pillow
if you can't make up your mind
just how different you should be
Reorganize your priorities to expect
more sympathy

only cynicism can get through to you
expand the image
up the insults
negativism through and through
all of this pretending
makes me feel a bit confused
you've spent your life losing yourself
and now you're marked as used
so you cry yourself to sleep
on your blanket of snow
with your tiara of barbie doll heads
and your arms crossed for a pillow

if you can't make up your mind
just how different you should be
reorganize your priorities
to expect more sympathy.

night 218 - Mirror - Nowhere

Pozdrowienia znikąd.

Czysta rozpacz i desperacja.

night 216 - PAROV STELAR feat. Lilja Bloom "COCO"

Coś jest w tej piosence. Przypomniała mi się w kontekście nocnych powrotów na koniec świata, gdzie obecnie mieszkam, psychopatycznych taksówkarzy, głuchych telefonów i tym podobnych "przywilejów" bycia kobietą...




Walking through dark streets,
the cold is looking for some way to stroke my skin.
My body is shaking, my knees are weak,
intense emotions overflowing me

I try to find myself, I try to move on,
dont know where I am, please carry me home
I try to find myself,
I try to move on, dont know where I am,
please carry me home

But I tell you whats inside of me will never die,will never die

I try to find myself, I try to move on,
dont know where I am, please carry me home

night 215 - Cold War Kids - Cold Toes On The Cold Floor

Zimno jak cholera.




Hunger and the lights are off, honey
Trying to find my head
Don't recall lying down
In this black bed

Cold toes on the cold floor x2

Feeling up the wall to find a light switch
Like a mime, surprised
What glows in the dark
A zippers broken spine

Cold toes on the cold floor x4

I am not alone
All my doves have flown

It's a classic mix-up, baby
An honest mistake
A girl I used know, maybe
Another face on the street
She said to say hello to you soon, and
I awake from my dream state

Cold toes on the cold floor x2

I will take out the garbage
I will squeeze your juice
So glad to be making
Scrambled eggs with you

Cold toes on the cold floor x4

I am not alone
All my doves have flown

night 214 - Arcade Fire - Sprawl (Flatland)

Piosenka na piątek (pokoncertowo - 25.06.2011, Torwar, Warszawa). Arcade Fire było już dwukrotnie, ale tej piosence ewidentnie należy się miejsce w zestawie.




Took a drive into the sprawl
To find the house where we used to stay
I couldn't read the number in the dark
You said "let's save it for another day"
I took a drive into the sprawl
To find the places we used to play
It was the loneliest day of my life
You're talking at me, but I'm still far away

Let's take a drive through the sprawl
Through these towns they built to change
And then you said "The emotions are dead"
It's no wonder that you feel so estranged

The cops shone their lights
On the reflectors of our bikes
Said "Do you kids know what time it is?"
Well, sir, it's the first time I felt like something is mine
Like I have something to give

The last defender of the sprawl
Said "Well, where do you kids live?"
Well, sir, if you only knew what the answer's worth
Been searching every corner of the earth...

night 213 - Sunset Rubdown - Shut Up I Am Dreaming Of Places Where Lovers Have Wings

Smutna piosenka o przestrzeni, która nas dzieli. Bo to Kanadyjczycy są. Takie niby proste granie, ale trochę się zakochałam nawet.




You're on the distant shore! [2x]
Oceans never listen to us anyway [2x]
And if I fall into the drink,
I will say your name, before I sink.

He says your name out loud;
In miniature rooms where no one's found;
It's a desperate sound.
You're on the distant shore!
He stands his feet down
You hear his knuckles on your door.
He wants to send you drawings
Drawings of men with faithful hands
They will make such good boyfriends
He wants to tell you stories
Stories of boys who stomped their feet saying,
Shut, shut up I am dreaming of places
Where lovers have wings.

I'll meet you where the river forks;
When everyone else is dead
You'll be safe on the water
We'll be much younger, and we remember.
You're on the distant shore!
I send my feet down
Down do you hear knuckles
On your door. Do you understand
What I'm finding for? Oh,
Oceans never listen to us anyway. [2x]
And if I fall into the drink,
I will say your name, before I sink.
Oceans never listen to us anyway.

I'm afraid of the water;
I'm afraid of the sky.
I'm tired of waiting.
Oceans never listen to us anyway [2x]
And if I fall into the drink,
I will say your name, before I sink.
So don't make a sound.
Don't make a sound.

night 212 - Little Dragon - Twice

Ktoś zrobił interesującą animację do tej piosenki - z wielkim ptakiem, dziewczynką i szkieletem grającym na flecie. Niestety nie kumam metafory. Generalnie chodzi o zdradę i myślę, że wystarczy to po prostu wyśpiewać.



Twice I turn my back on you
I fell flat on my face but didn't lose
Tell me where would I go
Tell me what led you on
I'd love to know

Was it the blue night
Gone fragile
Was it both men
In wonder
Steady gone under
Was it the light ways
So frightening
Was it two wills
One mirror holding us dearer now

Thought I had an answer once
But your random ways swept me along
Colossal signs so I got lost
With so many lovers singing soft

Was it the blue night
Gone fragile
Was it both men
In wonder
Steady gone under
Was it the light ways
So frightening
Was it two wills
One mirror holding us dearer now

night 211 - Pete and the Pirates - Humming

Zaległości odpracowane, na dzisiaj prosta piosenka o tańczących pszczółkach i światełkach na horyzoncie. Taka niby smutna, ale budząca nadzieję.




Should sound like bees are humming
Oh no, the dreams keep coming
My song is clear and simple
There's lights up in the distance

Break down and try again
Break down 'cause it's not the end now

Here come the bees, they're humming
They're trying to tell you something
Hey look, they're dancing for you
Mmm mmm

Break down and try again
Break down 'cause it's not the end now

Should sound like bees are humming
Oh no, the dreams keep coming
My song is clear and simple
There's lights up in the distance

Break down and try again
Break down 'cause it' not the end now

night 210 - Marina and the Diamonds- Rootless (HQ)

home is where the heart is







I'm a cloud drifting by
Dripping tears from the sky
I'm a snail without a shell
A leper with a golden bell
I've got nowhere to do
I'm a stray cat on the roam
Choking on a chicken bone
For a home sweet, no sweet home

For a root, for a leaf, for a branch, for a tree
But there's somebody that reminded them of me
Running with my roots pulled up
Caught me cold so they could cut
What there was left of love

I'm rootless (x2)

Work your fingers to the bone
Building castles out of snow
I'm a nomad walking on
Humming to the same old song
Lower case society
In touch with no community
A kingdom without a king
With no sense of belonging

For a root, for a leaf, for a branch, for a tree
But there's somebody that reminded them of me

Running with my roots pulled up
Caught me cold so they could cut
What there was left of love
I'm rootless (x2)

Running with my roots pulled up
So they could cut me free of love

Running with my roots pulled up
Caught me cold so they could cut
What there was left of love
I'm rootless (x2)

Jagged roots through the snow
For a home sweet and no sweet home
I've got nowhere to go
I'm rootless (x2)

night 207 - Broken Social Scene - Lover's Spit

Wbrew niezdrowej ekscytacji niektórych słuchaczy, nie jest to piosenka o robieniu loda. W każdym razie nie tylko. To jest piękny, romantyczny utwór o miłości, który autor napisał z myślą o swojej ukochanej żonie.




All these people drinking lover's spit
They sit around and clean their face with it
And they listen to teeth to learn how to quit
tied to a night they never met

You know it's time
that we grow old and do some shit
I like it all that way

All these people drinking lover's spit
Swallowing words while giving head
They listen to teeth to learn how to quit
tied to a night they never met

You know it's time
that we grow old and do some shit
I like it all that way

night 206 - James Vincent McMorrow - We Are Ghosts




The moon homes the light
And the moon’s a spinning globe
Shedding light upon the road
The birds were flying
And a bird without its wings is a low and tragic thing

We are ghosts
We are ghosts amongst these hills
From the trees around and green
To the ground beneath our feet
We are ghosts
We are ghosts amongst these hills
Pressing out along the shore
Pressing out along the shore

(Unsure of line)
(Unsure of line)
And is only to be heard
And now I’m gone
I will come again in Spring
And the harvest can begin

We are ghosts
We are ghosts amongst these hills
From the trees of life and green
To the ground beneath our feet
We are ghosts
We are ghosts amongst these hills
Pressing out along the shore
Pressing out along the shore

night 205 - Bon Iver - Calgary (official music video)




don't you cherish me to sleep
never keep your eyelids clipped
hold me for the pops and clicks
I was only for the father's crib

hair, old, long along
your neck onto your shoulder blades
always keep that message taped
cross your breasts you won't erase
I was only for your very space

hip, under nothing
propped up by your other one, face 'way from the sun
just have to keep a dialogue
teach our bodies: haunt the cause
I was only trying to spell a loss

joy, it's all founded
pincher with the skin inside
you pinned me with your black sphere eyes
you know that all the rope's untied
I was only for to die beside

so it's storming on the lake
little waves our bodies break

there's a fire going out,
but there's really nothing to the south

swollen orange and light let through
your one piece swimmer stuck to you

sold, I'm Ever
open ears and open eyes
wake up to your starboard bride
who goes in and then stays inside
oh the demons come, they can subside

night 204 - Miike Snow - Faker

Miike Snow serwuje smutek z domieszką gorzkiej ironii i godzenia się z losem. Uwielbiam.




Last call for everything.
A pool of emmalines delirious
She lingers like a chain
It's more than grave but not to serious.
Send your reverie to me
Faker.
Into the mouth of green morning,
Faker.
I am so wide awake
The wind is moving blossoms through the door.
It's more than I can take
But half as much as what it was before.
Send your reverie to me
Faker.
Into the mouth of green morning,
Faker.

night 203 - Handsome Furs - What We Had




It's cold
a plain diamond
nobody's here, just empty space
It's all moving, breathing
stuck to the ceiling, don't mean a thing

and what we had don't mean a thing
and what we had is already gone

it's all
a plain diamond
nobody's here, just empty space

they're all our eyes are saucered to see
as if hands might float right down from above
and change this place
nobody here, don't mean a thing

and what we had don't mean a thing
and what we had is already gone

I sit outside with the rain now
and time rolls slow
I sit outside with the rain
and time rolls slow
but they may never shut off
but they may never shut off

night 202 - The Rosebuds - Life Like

Smutna piosenka o potrzebie wolności i złych myśliwych, którym się wydaje, że jelonek najlepiej wygląda w charakterze milczącej dekoracji. Ostatnio wszystkie metafory odczytuję jednotorowo, więc może nie będę interpretować... Do tego czysta poezja w obrazku.




I know a clean way out, the vandals made it low
The day so lean, the nighttime slips in a song
There was a shot way out, down past Varina
I burn my bed and run naked in the Winter

Well oh well, the pines are getting to me, consider my life,
I'm wild but I'm not free

By all accounts it was a heavy snow
Brown is black by contrast I'm aglow
I hear, "Wait. You! I'm a man, you're the beast!"
But I'm just running so how can that be?

Well oh well, the pines are getting to me, consider my life
I'm wild but I'm not free
Well oh well, the pines are getting to me, believe me my eyes,
There's a thousand left like me

Reconstruct my body, capture me in flight
Glue in resin marbles, give me shiny eyes
Life like

night 201 - Wolf Parade - Modern World

night 200 - Dum Dum Girls - Baby Don't Go




Baby don't go, pretty baby please don't go

I never had another,
I hardly knew my dad
I been in town for eighteen years
You're the only boy I've had

I can't stay, baby I'll be back someday
Baby don't go, pretty baby please don't go
I love you so, pretty baby please don't go

I never had no money
I bought at the second-hand store
The way this old town laughs at me,
I just can't take it no more

I can't stay
I'm gonna be a lady someday
Baby don't go, pretty baby please don't go
I love you so, pretty baby please don't go

When I get to the city
My tears will all be dry
My eyes will look so pretty
No one's gonna know I cried

Yes I'm going away, maybe I'll be back someday
Baby don't go, maybe I'll be back someday
Baby don't go, maybe I'll be back someday

night 198 - L.Stadt - Death of a Surfer Girl - Official Music Video - No intro




We did escape from the Surfer's Night
We did surf on a higher water
We couldn't control how high's our pleasures now
...last night I dreamed about her...

If only death becomes a goal
There's no restrictions to be mad
Where all the good time walks
No need for saying "goodbye"

I know you've acted like a flare
Because of decision to be wild
We'd like to lose our heads
At least we've had a good time

We'd like to beat through another wave
We took the boards through another border
We can control how high's our pleasures now
But we can't control the water

If only death becomes a goal
There's no restrictions to be mad
Where all the good time walks
no need for saying "goodbye"

I know you've rounded off your song
Through gaily echoes from the clouds
You took the headhigh waves
And faced them in the moonlight

night 197 - Greg Laswell - Comes and Goes

Słodkie przygnębienie.




This one's for the lonely
The ones that seek and find
Only to be let down
Time after time

This one's for the torn down
The experts at the fall
Common friends get up now
You're not alone at all

And this part was for her
This part was for her
This part was for her
Does she remember?

It comes and goes in waves, i....

This one's for the faithless
The ones that are surprised
They are only where they are now
Regardless of their fight

This one's for believing
If only for it's sake
Common friends get up now
Love is to be made

And this part was for her
This part was for her
This part was for her
Does she remember?

It comes and goes in waves,
I am only let to wonder why
It comes and goes in waves
I am only let to wonder why
Why I try

This is for the ones who stand
For the ones who try again
For the ones who need a hand
For the ones who think they can

It comes and goes in waves,
I am only let to wonder why
It comes and goes in waves
I am only let to wonder why
Why I try
