night 129 - Xiu Xiu - "I Luv The Valley Oh"

Czekałam z tą piosenką na wyjątkowo depresjogenną okazję i dostatecznie wysoki poziom ogólnej frustracji. Myślę, że to nie jest koniecznie dziś, ale lepiej nie czekać aż będzie gorzej ;)




That's a pill and you've got to take it
That's a pill that you've got to take
I won't rest until you take it
That's a heart that you made
That's a heart and the both of you made it
And I won't rest until I break it
It?s ?histroic de la famile
It?s l?histroic de la FAM
And I won't rest until I forget about it
I won't rest until I don't care
I won't rest until I forget about it
La La La La La La La
That's a razor and you will make a threat
That's a razor make million billion threats
And I won't rest cuz I heard it all before
My behind is a beehive, there's a buzz in my backside
My behind is a beehive and I won't rest
while you break my will
Je t?aime the valley
Je t?aime the valley OH!!!
I am an orphan de la valley
And I won?t rest until I forget about it
I won?t rest until I don?t care
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA

night 128 - MONO - Life In Mono

Tak mi jakoś dzisiaj bardziej subtelnie smutno...





The stranger sang a theme
From someone else's dream
The leaves began to fall
And no one spoke at all
But I can't seem to recall
When you came along

Ingenue
Ingenue
I just don't know what to do

The tree-lined avenue
Begins to fade from view
Drowning past regrets
In tea and cigarettes
But I can't seem to forget
When you came along

Ingenue
Ingenue
I just don't know what to do

Ingenue
I just don't know what to do...

night 127 - Keane - "Bedshaped"




Many's the time I ran with you down
The rainy roads of our old town
Many the lives we lived in each day
And buried altogether

Don't laugh at me
Don't look away
You'll follow me back

With the sun in your eyes
And on your own
Bedshaped
And legs of stone
You'll knock on my door
And up we'll go
In white light
I don't think so

But what do I know
What do I know?
I know
I know you think I'm holding you down
And I've fallen by the wayside now
And I don't understand the same things as you
But I do

Don't laugh at me
Don't look away
You follow me back

With the sun in your eyes
And on your own
Bedshaped
And legs of stone
You'll knock on my door
And up we'll go
In white light
I don't think so
But what do I know
What do I know?
I know

Oh oh
And up we'll go
In white light
I don't think so

But what do I know
What do I know?
I know

night 126 - Aqualung - "Strange & Beautiful"

Smutnych cichych wielbicieli w typie podmiotu lirycznego proszę w imieniu wielbionych kobiet o ujawnianie się wiosną zamiast potajemnego rzucania klątw i uroków.




I've been watching your world from afar
I've been trying to be where you are
And I've been secretly falling apart
Unseen

To me, you're strange and you're beautiful
You'd be so perfect with me
But you just can't see
You turn every head but you don't see me

I'll put a spell on you
You'll fall asleep
I'll put a spell on you
And when I wake you, I'll be the first thing you see
And you'll realize that you love me

Yeah, yeah

Sometimes the last thing you want comes in first
Sometimes the first thing you want never comes
I know that waiting is all you can do, sometimes

I'll put a spell on you
You'll fall asleep
I'll put a spell on you
And when I wake you, I'll be the first thing you see
And you'll realize that you love me

I'll put a spell on you
You'll fall asleep
I'll put a spell on you
And when I wake you, I'll be the first thing you see
And you'll realize that you love me

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

night 125 - Gotye - "Hearts a Mess"

Genialna piosenka i absolutnie fenomenalny teledysk. Wiosenne ostrzeżenie przed destrukcyjną potęgą miłości. Serce to wrażliwy mięsień, w razie uszkodzeń wymaga długiej i żmudnej rehabilitacji.





Pick apart
The pieces of your heart
And let me peer inside
Let me in
Where only your thoughts have been
Let me occupy your mind
As you do mine

You have lost
(Too much love)
To fear, doubt and distrust
(It’s not enough)
You just threw away the key
(To your heart)

You don’t get burned
(’Cause nothing gets through)
It makes it easier
(Easier on you)
But that much more difficult for me
To make you see…

Love ain’t fair
So there you are
My love

Your heart’s a mess
You won’t admit to it
It makes no sense
But I’m desperate to connect
And you, you can’t live like this

Your heart’s a mess
You won’t admit to it
It makes no sense
But I’m desperate to connect
And you, you can’t live like this

Your heart’s a mess
You won’t admit to it
It makes no sense
But I’m desperate to connect
And you, you can’t live like this

Love ain’t safe
You won’t get hurt if you stay chaste
So you can wait
But I don’t wanna waste my love

night 124 - Laura Marling - "New Romantic"

Piosenka na wczoraj. Z komentarzy internautów: "This is about a fucked up girl that really just don't know what she wants." Czyli smutna, a zarazem nieco ironiczna piosenka o mnie :)





I know I said I love you but I'm thinking I was wrong,
I'm the first to admit that I'm still pretty young,
And I never meant to hurt you when I wrote you ten love songs.

That guy that I could never get, 'cause his girlfriend was pretty fit,
And everyone who knew her loved her so.
And I made you leave her for me and now I'm feeling pretty mean,
But my mind has fucked me over more times than any man could ever know.

Maybe I should give up, give in,
Give up trying to be thin,
Give up and turn into my mother,
God knows I love her.

And I'm sorry to whichever man should meet my sorry state,
Watch my sturdy, lonesome gait and beware,
I will never love a man 'cause love and pain go hand in hand,
And I can't do it,
Again.

So we stayed up late one night to try and get our problems right,
But I couldn't get into his head just what was going through my mind.
And I think he knew where I was going 'cause he put Ryan Adams on,
'cause I think he thinks it makes me weak, but it only ever makes me strong.

I've got this friend who sounds just like him,
Now he's the man I leave you for, the man that I just adore,
Like you.
The same man, he turns to me, he said "I've got to tell you how I feel,
If God could make the perfect girl, for me it would be you,
And my God told me not to tell about how much do you love your fella?"
I don't know more everyday,
Not in this new romantic way.

I'll always be your first love,
You'll always be my first love.

And I'm sorry to whichever man should meet my sorry state,
Watch my sturdy, lonesome gait and beware,
That I will never love a man 'cause I could never hurt a man in this way.
I will never love a man 'cause I could never hurt a man,
Not in this new romantic way.

night 123 - Arcade Fire - "My body is a cage"

Arcade Fire już było, ale w wersji żeńskiej. Poza tym myślę, że warto powtórzyć w oczekiwaniu na bilet na czerwcowy koncert. Niniejszym dziękuję Michałowi za sugestię :) Finał piosenki co prawda niesie ze sobą nutkę optymizmu, jednak nie każdy potrafi się wyzwolić z więzienia własnego umysłu... (bo to umysł, nie ciało, dzierży klucze do wolności). I to jest smutne.





My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

I'm standing on the stage
Of fear and self-doubt
It's a hollow play
But they'll clap anyway

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

Standing next to me
My mind holds the key

I'm living in an age
That calls darkness light
Though my language is dead
Still the shapes fill my head

I'm living in an age
Whose name I don't know
Though the fear keeps me moving
Still my heart beats so slow

My body is a cage
That keeps me from dancing with the one I love
But my mind holds the key

Standing next to me
My mind holds the key

My body is a . . .

My body is a cage
We take what we're given
Just because you've forgotten, that don't mean you're forgiven

I'm living in an age
Still turning in the night
But when I get to the doorway
There's no one in sight

I'm living in an age
Realizing I'm dancing
With the one I love
But my mind holds the key

You're still next to me
My mind holds the key
Set my spirit free
Set my spirit free
Set my body free
Set my body free
Woo!
Set my spirit free
Set my body free
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

night 122 - Stateless - "Miles To Go"

Smutna ballada o drodze...




When the homeless clouds starts vanishing
And the river freezes over
I can watch the sunlight melt the snow
I can feel a new light start to grow

But I still got miles to go before I sleep
Still got miles to go before all is revealed
Still got miles to go before I sleep
Still listening to the chainless wind sing

I could build a nest in the frost and fire
While the sun is flaming on the ice
And stat unravelling this broken soul
It's time this time, and I can feel a new light

But I still got miles to go before I sleep
Still got miles to go before all is revealed
Still got miles to go before I sleep
Still listening to the chainless wind sing

I still got miles to go before I sleep
Still got miles to go before all is revealed
Still got miles to go before I sleep
Still listening to the chainless wind sing

night 121 - Glasvegas - "It's My Own Cheating Heart That Makes Me Cry"




Let the raining teardrops rain down on me tonight
i think making up, faking up stories is alright
tick tock stop the clock, fiction is my thing
my attitude is always i and me and mine

oh I’m so clever, I'm so clever, I'm so clever
until my paranoia kicks in then I’ll accuse her
of doing all the worst things i do best
its funny how me fucking her about
has got me in this fucking mess

liar liar liar liar pants on fire
lies alibis lies more alibis
from the truth, i admit I’m more than shy
ain’t it the times we are living in
everybody’s doing it so why cant I?

i tally up tonight’s strangers
and stragglers that I’ve kissed
training ground notches, perfectly executed notches
and near misses
its all about going out and getting pissed with eagle eyes
and sincerity bottom on my list
what’s the story morning glory?
i feel so low and worthless, yeah

so this is where the outcome unfurls and the truth is being told
a cloud has gathered over my head and now i know
infidelity and my good friend ecstasy doesn’t work, it makes you worse
I’m feeling so guilty about the things i said to my mum when i was ten year old
I’m feeling so guilty about any old shit
and how i think my missus is fucking every guy that she looks at
this is it, this is it, this is it, this it
the end was always coming and now its here

so this is the grand finale
the crescendo of demise
this is the happy ending
where the bad guy goes down and dies
this is the end
with me on my knees and wondering why?
cross my heart, hope to die
its my own cheating heart that makes me cry

night 120 - Nick Drake - "Day is Done"

Po prostu Nick Drake. Mistrz smutasów i postać tragiczna.





When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything that was lost and won
When the day is done

When the day is done
Hope so much your race will be all run
Then you find you jumped the gun
Have to go back where you begun
When the day is done

When the night is cold
Some get by but some get old
Just to show life's not made of gold
When the night is cold

When the bird has flown
Got no one to call your own
Got no place to call your home
When the bird had flown

When the game's been fought
You sped the ball across the court
Lost much sooner that you would've thought
Now the game's been fought

When the party's through
Seems so very sad for you
Didn't do the things you meant to do
Now there's no time to start anew
Now the party's through

When the day is done
Down to earth then sinks the sun
Along with everything that was lost and won
When the day is done

night 119 - Mazzy Star - "Fade Into You"

Od 11 minut mamy pierwszy dzień wiosny, ewidentnie czas na miłość. W ogóle nie mam nastroju na smutne piosenki, ale obowiązek obowiązkiem... Piosenka o nieodwzajemnionej miłości, jakiej nikomu tej wiosny nie życzę.





I want to hold the hand inside you
I want to take a breath that's true
I look to you and I see nothing
I look to you to see the truth
You live your life
You go in shadows
You'll come apart and you'll go blind
Some kind of light into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what's not there.

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

A stranger's light comes on slowly
A stranger's heart without a home
You put your hands into your head
And then smiles cover your heart

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it's strange you never knew
I think it's strange you never knew

night 118 - The Decemberists - "On The Bus Mall"

Mam problem z wyrazistymi historiami w piosenkach, zwłaszcza jeśli trudno mi się z nimi utożsamić. Zdecydowanie wolę uniwersalne przesłania. Ale przecież fakt, że bohaterami tekstu są dwaj prostytuujący się chłopcy nie oznacza wcale, że piosenka nie mówi po prostu o miłości.





In matching blue raincoats
Our shoes were our showboats
We kicked around
From stairway to station
We made a sensation
With the gadabout crowd

And oh, what a bargain
We're two easy targets
For the old men at the off tracks
Who paid in palaver and crumpled old dollars
Which we squirelled away
In our rat-trap hotel by the freeway
And we slept in Sundays

Your parents were anxious
Your cool was contagious
At the old school
You left without leaving
A note for your grieving sweet mother
While your brother was so cruel

And here in the alleys
Your spirits will rally
As you learn quick to make a fast buck
In bathrooms and barrooms
On dumpsters and heirlooms
We bit our tongues
Sucked our lips into our lungs
Because we were falling
Such was our calling

And here in our hovel
We fuse like a family
But I will not mourn for you
So take up your make-up
And pocket your pills away
We're kings among runaways
On the bus mall
We're down on the bus mall

Among all the urchins
And old Chinese merchants
At the old town
We reigned at the pool hall
With one iron cue ball
And we never let the bastards get us down

And we laughed off the quick tricks
And the old men with limp dicks
On the colonnades at the waterfront park
As four in the morning
Came on cold and boring
We huddled close in the bus-stop enclosure enfolding
Our hands tightly holding

And here in our hovel
We fuse like a family
But I will not mourn for you
So take up your make-up
And pocket your pills away
We're kings among runaways
On the bus mall
We're down on the bus mall

night 117 - Okay - Huggable Dust

Marty cierpi na rzadką odmianę choroby Cohna, stąd jego dziwaczny wokal i nienaturalna chudość. Ponadto rzuciła go ukochana, stąd pewna doza smutku w jego piosenkach. Przeważa jednak dystans, ironia i swego rodzaju pogodzenie się z losem. Ot, zdarzył się taki życiowy niefart, ale generalnie jest okay...




I didn't know that this something was really nothing in my way
But now I know that this something just has to leave so it can stay

It has to leave so it can stay

I let it go to love it all the way

night 116 - Kashmir - Ether




When it feels like you’ve been cancelled
Like someone took your breath away
To replace it with ether
And you stagger in eadwind all day
It’s too easy to go crazy
Way much harder to stay clear
Tough you’re pleading (come save me)
No one or nothing comes near

Refrigerate your fire

The grim faces that you’re passing
In your freefall from the ground
Won’t remember, won’t be asking
And they won’t be making a sound

Hold your soldiers
And keep them in the woods
Until it’s over, it will be
Wait see
The sun sets
And morning
Puts you back into place
The right place

Refrigerate your fire

środa, 16 marca 2011

night 115 - As Tall As Lions - "Lost My Mind"

Smutna piosenka o odchodzeniu, przemijaniu, zapomnieniu...





Close to home
Far from me
I thought I lost my goddamn mind trying to be all that you want me to be
And now you're gone, gone, gone
You won't look at me

Kodachrome is how I see
All the world's in black and white, red, blue, and green
The moment's locked up in our machine
And now they're gone, gone, gone
Oh, they're gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
From my memory


[Wake up in his
We rose a toast to the rest
But nobody cares
If I let it in
Who knows what's staying under my skin]

night 114 - Blur Sweet Song

Delikatny blurrowy smuteczek w sam raz na dziś - z dedykacją dla przyjaciela.




What am I to do
Someone here is really not happy
Put myself on a line
It seems I never got through to you
So I wean myself off slowly

I'm a darkened soul
My streets all pop music and gold
Our lives are on TV
You switch off and try to sleep
People get so lonely

I believe I believe I believe
Everything's out to sea
I believe I believe I believe I believe
That is the way it should be
I hope you feel the same

Everyone is dying
Stop crying now here comes the sun
I didn't mean to hurt you no no no
It takes time to see what you have done
So I wean myself off slowly

I believe I believe I believe
Love is the only one
I deceive I deceive I deceive I deceive
Cos' I'm not that strong
Hope you feel the same

And now it seems that we're falling apart
But I hope I see the good in you come back again
I just believed in you

night 113 - Elbow - "Red"

Mam wrażenie, że w wersji akustycznej Elbow brzmi mocniej.Ten utwór już kiedyś był w komentarzach, ale moim zdaniem zasługuje na własny odcinek. Podmiot liryczny zwraca się tu do osoby, którą darzy uczuciem, ale której nie potrafi ochronić przed nią samą. Miłość i autodestrukcja. Piękne. Smutne,... ale piękne.




Come as you are sweetheart
Come as you are
You know you've got nothing to prove

I'll put you to bed you can
Let it all go
You've been playing too rough lately

Chorus :
You burn too bright
You live too fast
This can't go on too long
You're a tragedy starting to happen

Just as you are perfect
Just as you are
I'll give you the time you deserve

Don't make those promises
Don't tell me again
That dust is gonna settle your nerves

night 112 - Wolfsheim - "Kein Zurück"

Nie rozumiem ani słowa po niemiecku, ale piosenka jest z grubsza o tym, że co się stało to się nie odstanie i że nie wejdziesz dwa razy do tej samej rzeki... Zamieszczam angielskie tłumaczenie jakiegoś robaczka z forum, bo podobno oficjalna angielska wersja zatytułowana "No Return" jest tekstowo słaba.





Es geht kein Weg zurück ...

Weißt du noch, wie's war ?
Kinderzeit... wunderbar...
Die Welt ist bunt und schön.
Bis du irgendwann begreifst,
Dass nicht jeder Abschied heißt,
Es gibt auch ein Wiedersehen

Immer vorwärts, Schritt um Schritt ...
Es geht kein Weg zurück!
Und Was jetzt ist, wird nie mehr ungeschehen.
Die Zeit läuft uns davon, Was getan ist, ist getan.
Was jetzt ist, wird nie mehr so geschehen.

Es geht kein Weg zurück (2x)

Ein Wort zuviel im Zorn gesagt,
'N Schritt zu weit nach vorn gewagt.
Schon ist es vorbei.
Was auch immer jetzt getan,
Was ich gesagt hab´, ist gesagt,
Und was wie ewig schien ist schon Vergangenheit.

Immer vorwärts, Schritt um Schritt ...
Es geht kein Weg zurück!
Und Was jetzt ist, wird nie mehr ungeschehen.
Die Zeit läuft uns davon, Was getan ist, ist getan.
Was jetzt ist, wird nie mehr so geschehen.

Ach, und könnt' ich doch nur ein einz'ges Mal Die Uhren rückwärts drehen,
Denn wieviel von dem, was ich heute weiß, Hätt' ich lieber nie gesehen.

Es geht kein Weg zurück (3x)

Dein Leben dreht sich nur im Kreis,
So voll von weggeworfener Zeit,
und Deine Träume schiebst Du endlos vor Dir her.
Du willst noch leben irgendwann,
Doch wenn nicht heute, wann denn dann...?
Denn irgendwann ist auch ein Traum zu lange her.

Immer vorwärts, Schritt um Schritt ...
Es geht kein Weg zurück!
Und Was jetzt ist, wird nie mehr ungeschehen.
Die Zeit läuft uns davon, Was getan ist, ist getan.
Was jetzt ist, wird nie mehr so geschehen.




TRANSLATION:


There is no way back

Do you remember how i was like?
Wonderful childhood -
the world full of color and beauty.
Until one day you it strikes you:
not every goodbye
has its reunion.

(Chorus)
Always forward, step by step,
there is no way back,
and what is now,
can never be undone.
Time escapes us,
what's done is done.
And what is now,
will never happen again in the same way.

There is no way back.
There is no way back.

A word too much, spoken in anger,
a step too far you dared to go,
and all is lost.
Whatever is done,
what i said, remains spoken,
and what looked like eternity,
is already in the past.

Chorus

Oh, if I could just once
turn back the clocks.
For much of what I know today,
I'd prefer not having seen.

There is no way back.
There is no way back.

Your life is just running in circles,
full of time, carelessly thrown away,
you procrastinate your dreams endlessly.
Someday, you intend to live,
but when if not today?
For one day even a dream is too long gone.

night 111 - How To Destroy Angels - "A Drowning"

night 110 - Peaches - 'Lose You'

Smutna piosenka z jajem na wczoraj. Trochę nabijamy się z Madonny, a jednak jest nam trochę smutno. Peaches w zupełnie nieagresywnym wydaniu, bo silne dziewczyny też bywają sentymentalne ;)


,Br>
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you

How does it happen
All of a sudden
Finger to button
Push it and nothing

How does it happen
All of a sudden
Can't fight the feeling
Someone just steal it

I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you

Touch on the surface
I've lost the purpose
Hitting the ceiling
No more concealing

Why is it crossing
Turning and dancing
Tossing and turning
Your insides are burning

I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you

Come over here
Or do we stay clear
There's nothing to fear
Except when we're near
I got a bad attitude
I'm changing my mood
I wanna bring you
But it's not true

I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna lose you

night 109 - UNKLE - "Rabbit in your headlight"




Thom Yorke:
I'm a rabbit in your headlights
Scared of the spotlight
You don't come to visit
I'm stuck in this bed

Thin rubber gloves
She laughs when she's crying
She cries when she's laughing

Fat bloody fingers are sucking your soul away...
(Away....away....away....)

I'm a rabbit in your headlights
Christian suburbanite
Washed down the toliet
Money to burn

Fat bloody fingers are sucking your soul away...

Sample from movie Jacob's Ladder:
If you're frightened of dyin' and you're holding on...
You'll see devils tearing your life away.
But...if you've made your peace,
Then the devils are really angels
Freeing you, from the earth... from the earth... from the earth

Whiteworms on the underground
Caught between stations
Butterfingers
I'm losing my patience

I'm a rabbit in your headlights
Christian suburbanite
You got money to burn....

Fat bloody fingers are sucking your soul away.....
Away, away, away,
Away, away, away.

night 108 - Rezső Seress - Original Gloomy Sunday Lyrics (A Modern Take)

Każdy może podstawić w tym miejscu swoje ulubione wykonanie "Gloomy Sunday". Osobiście pokusiłam się do sięgnięcia po oryginalny tekst kompozytora, który wraz z muzyką (jak głosi legenda) tak wielu przywiódł do samobójczej śmierci. W tym samego autora i jego małżonkę... Obecnie znamy lepiej wersję alternatywną o nieco złagodzonej wymowie, autorstwa Laszlo Javora.

night 107 - Einstürzende Neubauten - Sabrina

Nie było tego jeszcze? niemożliwe??? Smutna piosenka o Sabrinie i jej mrocznym sercu. A teledysk to już w ogóle osobna historia.




It's not the red of the dying sun
The morning sheets' surprising stain
It's not the red of which we bleed
The red of cabernet savignon
A world of ruin all in vain

It's not that red
It's not that red
It's not that red

It's not as golden as Zeus's famous shower
It's doesn't, not at all, come from above
It's in the open but it doesn't get stolen

It's not that gold

It's not as golden as memory
Or the age of the same name

It's not that gold
It's not that gold
It's not that gold
It's not gold at all

I wish that would be your color
I wish this would be your color
I wish this would be your color
Your color, I wish

It is as black as Malevich's square
The cold furnace in which we stare
A high pitch on a future scale
It is a starless winter night's tale
It suits you well

It is that black
It is that black
It is that black
It is that black

I wish this would be your color
I wish this would be your color
I wish this would be your color
...
Your color, I wish

night 106 - Tindersticks - ''Raindrops''

Wszyscy są wystarczająco chorzy i nieszczęśliwi, więc odpuszczam na dzisiaj wątki samobójcze i tematykę okołośmiertną. Piosenka o leniwej miłości. Prawie optymistyczna :)




Silence is here again
The silence is here again tonight
Will the love ever come back?
Will the love ever come back?
I know I've been pushing you away
I know it's been going on for days
Those awkward little things
So endearing
Those awkward little things
Wear on me

See, what we got here is a tired love
What we got here is a lazy love


It mooches around the house
Can't wait to go out
What it needs, it just grabs
It never asks
We sit and watch the divide widen
We sit and listen to our hearts crumble
With our only chance to jump
Neither of us had the guts
Maybe we're just too proud
To say it out loud

Silence is here again tonight
Silence is here again tonight

night 105 - Elliott Smith - "Everything Means Nothing To Me"

W polskiej Wikipedii hasło Elliott Smith obejmuje dwa słowa: "amerykański muzyk". Naprawdę smutne. Smith przez większość życia zmagał się z uzależnieniami i depresją oraz pisał i śpiewał bardzo smutne piosenki. Zakończył życie w wieku 34 lat wbijając sobie nóż w serce... dwukrotnie. Musiało mu naprawdę zależeć.



Someone found the future as a statue
In a fountain, at attention, looking backward
In a bowl of water wishes with a blue songbird
On his shoulder who keeps singing over everything

Everything means nothing to me

I picked up the song and found my picture
In the paper, the reflection in the water showed
An iron man still trying to salute people
From a time when he was everything he's supposed to be

Everything means nothing to me

night 104 - Pedro The Lion - "The Longest Winter"

Piosenka na wczoraj. Z nadzieją, że ta zima kiedyś jednak musi minąć...





Spring comes slowly
To this old friend
Still I'm frozen
I still live alone

In time, memories fade
Senses numb
One forgets how it feels
To have loved completely

Love well, young man
While you still can
Once your leaves turn
You won't love again

Is it special when you're lonely?
Will you spend your whole life
In a studio apartment
With a cat for a wife?
The seasons, when they call you
Do you baracade the door?
Are you stubborn to the core?

Is it your way
Or the highway?

Then the longest winter is on her way
You called her without knowing it
But now it's too late

night 103 - Modest Mouse- "So Long to the Cold Part of The World"

Radziu, dziękuję za podpowiedź. Nie sądziłam, że tak szybko powtórzę MM, ale nastrój jest sprzyjający. Żegnaj okrutny świecie...



So long to this cold, cold part of the world
So long to this cold, cold part of the world
So long to this bone bleached part of the world
So long to this cold, cold part of the world
So long to this salt soaked part of the world
I stepped down as president of Antarctica
Can't blame me, don't blame me, don't
So long to this sad, sad part of the world
So long, so long

night 102 - Nancy Sinatra - "Bang Bang"

ech... być jak Nancy...




I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

Seasons came and changed the time
When I grew up, I called him mine
He would always laugh and say
"Remember when we used to play?"

Bang bang, I shot you down
Bang bang, you hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, I used to shoot you down

Music played and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang

Now he's gone. I don't know why
And till this day, sometimes I cry
He didn't even say goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

night 101 - Soap&Skin - "Spiracle"

Właściwie mogłabym wybierać z repertuaru Soap & Skin losowo. Wybrałam piosenkę o smutnym i bolesnym dzieciństwie, które przyniosło owoce w postaci mrocznych, niepokojących i depresyjnych piosenek o chorobie, przemocy, śmierci i rozkładzie. Anja Plaschg komponując je miała zaledwie 19 lat.




When I was a child
I toyed with dirt
an I fought
As a child
I killed the slugs I bored with a bough
in their spiracle
When I was a child
peers pushed me hard
In my head
In my neck
in my chest
in my waist
in my butt
I still beg
please help me

When I was a child
I threw with dung as I fought
As a child, I killed all thugs
and I bored with a bough
In their spiracle
When I was a child
foes pushed me hard
In my
In my neck
in my chest
in my waist
in my butt
I still beg
please help me

When I was a child
I rend my tongue, distraught
As a child
I killed my thoughts
and bored with a bough
In my spiracle
When I was a child
Fears pushed me hard in my head
In my neck
in my chest
in my waist
I never loved
I still beg
please help me

When I was a child
I bred a whore in my heart
A stillborn child
I gasp for -
The devil into my spiracle

I was a child
I was a child
I am a child

night 100 - Keren Ann - where no endings end

Taka piosenka o życiu po prostu. I trochę o miłości.





Send me off shore
It's a cold blooded war
I can't win
I give in
I give in

In the field of my fight
We can wonder all night
Why we have
All this love
All this love

You and I, we were drawn
In the break of the dawn
With the boreal wind
Where beginnings begin
But we can't change the world
No we can't change the world
It's been done
by someone
long ago

Send me off shore
There's a bright semaphore
Calling in

Every wind
Every wind

In the loop of my game
There's a whole life to blame
It's been done
But we won
what we won

You and I, we both run
with a unloaded gun
For the same piece of land
Where no endings end
But we can't change the world
No we can't change the world
It's been done
by someone
long ago

Send me off shore
She's a cold blooded war
I can't win
I give in
I give in
