night 160 - John Frusciante - Dying Song




I'm going away forever
I'm going away forever
Never coming back this way
Never coming back to this place

What I need is a heaven
What I really need is a heaven
A place to go where I can really be
A place to go where I can really be
Where I can really be

Dreaming my life away counts for nothing
Dreaming my life away counts for nothing
But nothing ever is the end
No nothing ever is the end

It's sure been a full life for me baby
It's sure been a full life for me yeh
It's sure been a full life for me baby
It's sure been a full life for me
It's sure been a full life for me baby
It's sure been a full life for me yeh
It's sure been a full life for me baby
It's sure been a full life for me
It's sure been a full life for me baby
It's sure been a full life for me yeh
It's sure been a full life for me yeeaah
It's sure been a full life for me

night 159 - Liars -The Other Side Of Mt. Heart Attack (Album Version)




I won't run far.
I won't run far.
I won't run far.

I can always be found.
I can always be found.

Ah...

If you need me,
If you need me,
If you need me,

I can always be found.
I can always be found.

Ah...

If you want me to stay,
If you want me to stay,
If you want me to stay,

I will stay by your side.
I will stay by your side.
I will stay by your side.

I won't run far.
I won't run far.
I won't run far.

I can always be found.
I will stay by your side,
And I want you to find me,
so I'll stay by your side.

Ah...

If you need me,
If you need me,
If you need me,

I can always be found.
I can always be found.
I can always be found.

Ah...

I won't run far.
I won't run far.
I won't run far.

I can always be found.
I can always be found.
I can always be found.

night 158 - R.E.M. - Drive (Video)

Piosenka na czwartek z odległych czasów, kiedy to Mike miał włosy, a R.E.M nagrywało niezłe piosenki ze świetnymi teledyskami... Przyplątała mi się przy okazji rozmyślania o tej rewolucji, która się podobno latem szykuje.

Hey, kids, rock'n'roll !

...i oby nie wyszło jak zwykle...




Smack, crack, bushwhacked.
Tie another one to the racks, baby.

Hey kids, rock and roll.
Nobody tells you where to go, baby.

What if I ride? What if you walk?
What if you rock around the clock?
Tick-tock. Tick-tock.
What if you did? What if you walk?
What if you tried to get off, baby?

Hey, kids, where are you?
Nobody tells you what to do, baby.

Hey kids, shake a leg.
Maybe you're crazy in the head, baby.

Maybe you did. Maybe you walked.
Maybe you rocked around the clock.
Tick-tock. Tick-tock.
Maybe I ride. Maybe you walk.
Maybe I drive to get off, baby.

Hey kids, shake a leg.
Maybe you're crazy in the head, baby.

Ollie, ollie.
Ollie ollie ollie.
Ollie ollie in come free, baby.

Hey, kids, where are you?
Nobody tells you what to do, baby.

Smack, crack. Shack-a-lack.
Tie another one to your back, baby.

Hey kids, rock and roll.
Nobody tells you where to go, baby.

Maybe you did. Maybe you walk.
Maybe you rock around the clock
Tick-tock. Tick-tock.
Maybe I ride. Maybe you walk.
Maybe I drive to get off, baby.

Hey kids, where are you?
Nobody tells you what to do, baby.

Hey kids, rock and roll.
Nobody tells you where to go, baby, baby, baby.

night 157 - The Raconteurs - Blue Veins

Najprawdziwszy blues na środę. W wersji live niestety pominięto szatańską partię śpiewaną od tyłu, ale za to gitary są mocno szatańskie, a całość trwa dłużej i brzmi mroczniej. Jack i jego dziewczyna-heroina.




When I was surrounded by the world
You were the only one who came
And you were the only one astounded
Which kept me grounded
As the other girls thrashed my very name

Then I looked over
Just in time to see her smiling back at me
And saying everything's OK
As long as you're inside my blue veins
Your blue veins

Yeah and the feeling that you gave me
No matter what I do or where I go
It always will remain
And those who would enslave me to get to me must get past you and will have no luck
Cause you'll protect me from all pain
It's true, they'll have no luck

The most beautiful, yeah the most beautiful thing
cause anything else can't compare
Must be the blood that's running through your blue veins
Your blue veins

Your blue veins

And I know you won't deceive me
Like the rest and there's nothing you need to explain
You're always were the first one to believe me
When I said to you girl
I think it's gonna rain
But I could be wrong

Yeah but all of these things
All these things
They're all truly nice but ain't nothing
Ain't nothing compared to the love
that's running through your little blue veins

Your blue veins

night 156 - Edie Brickell & New Bohemians - Circle

Smutna piosenka na wtorek.




Me, I'm a part of your circle of friends
And we notice you don't come around
Me, I think it all depends
On you touching ground with us, but

CHORUS:
I quit -- I give up
Nothing's good enough for anybody else
It seems

And being alone is the best way to be
When I'm by myself it's the best way to be
When I'm all alone it's the best way to be
When I'm by myself nobody else can say goodbye

Everything is temporary anyway
When the streets are wet
The colors slip into the sky

But I don't know that means you and I are
That means you and

CHORUS

And being alone is the best way to be
When I'm by myself it's the best way to be
When I'm all alone it's the best way to be
When I'm by myself nobody else can say

Me, I'm a part of your circle of friends
And we notice you don't come around

night 155 - Moby - Sleep Alone

Generalnie nie lubię piosenek z konkretną historią, więc tej nie będę przytaczać (kto wie, ten wie). Tekst jest na tyle uniwersalny, że można go interpretować po swojemu.




As the sun was set
And the pieces of light touch your hair
Perfect love come softly
With the dawn, the dawn
City once full of people
Desolate, is desolate
We look back in
To the ruins where we played

At least we were together
Holding hands
Flying through the sky
At least we were together
Holding hands
Flying through the sky
Sky

Touch your hand
You touch the back of my hand
So many empty nights
Just waiting for this, for this
Standing there
All heading downsteam
Unsteady island
We hear nothing, nothing

At least we were together
Holding hands
Flying through the sky
At least we were together
Holding hands
Flying through the sky
Sky

At least we were together
Holding hands
Flying through the sky
At least we were together
Holding hands
Flying through the sky
At least we were together
Holding hands
Flying through the sky
At least we were together
Holding hands
Flying through the sky
Sky ...

night 154 - Florence and The Machine - My Best Dress

I wreszcie piosenka na dzisiejszy wieczór. Florencja pięknie opowiada o prawdziwej miłości, takiej do grobowej deski. Wielka szkoda, że ta piosenka nie ma wersji studyjnej.




When your life is over I won't be sad or bluer
I'll put on my fancy hat, lie down next to you
I'll kiss you once for life; I'll kiss you twice for death
Hold you close for comfort, wearing my best dress

You look so angry when you sleep, your face a troubled frown
So I will smooth your furrowed brow as I lay you in the ground
I'll kiss you once for life; I'll kiss you twice for death
I'll hold you close for comfort, wearing my best dress

And as the mourners pass me, I will smile and wave
Thank them for their sympathy and tell them I'll be brave
But once the wake is over, and I'm drunk and feeling fine
I'll go out there and find me another boy to pass the time

As we're dancing cheek to cheek and the lights are laid low
I'll request this song for you, laying into the ground below
Once the song is over and it's time to go to bed
I'll leave him on the dance floor and return to you instead

I'll kiss you once for life; I'll kiss you twice for death
I'll hold you close for comfort, wearing my best dress

night 153 - MYSTERY JETS - Flakes

Piosenka na wczoraj. Kolejny utwór o rozstaniu, złamanym sercu i wielkim rozczarowaniu. I dowód na to, że każdemu może się zdarzyć nagranie jednego fajnego kawałka.

Br>

This song
Is one I never thought that I'd play
But if you want me gone
There are kinder ways to say
So long than spitting in my face

They don't teach these things in school
They just lay down the rules which are there for you to break
Which are there for you to break

If I'm wrong
Then dust me off and put me in my place
But drop a bombshell
And you'll blow me away without even a trace
I'll be gone and I won't give chase

'Cause when you're in pieces, you pick up the bits,
and nothing fits, and the wind blows
You away
Oh, the wind blows you away
Oh, the wind blows you away
Oh, the wind blows you away


I pray
There will come a time when I think of you and I smile
These days
Everything seems to last only a while
Remember the names
For the day when we'd have a child

But the trouble with dreams, they're not what they seem,
'cause when you awake, they fall through your fingers
In flakes
They fall through your fingers in flakes
They fall through your fingers in flakes
They fall through your fingers in flakes

night 152 - Editors - Lullaby (The Cure cover) Live @ HMH Amsterdam 2008

Piosenka na piątek. Kocham covery i kocham Toma Smitha, więc chyba nikt się nie obrazi, że kołysanka The Cure pojawi się właśnie w tej wersji. Chodzi przecież o piosenkę. Jeden z najbardziej uniwersalnych tekstów, jakie znam - każdy może go interpretować przez pryzmat własnych koszmarów, bez względu na to, czego dotyczą. Uzależnienia, molestowanie, depresja, lęki, koszmary senne... wszystko pasuje.




On candystripe legs the spiderman comes
Softly through the shadow of the evening sun
Stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
Looking for the victim shivering in bed
Searching out fear in the gathering gloom and
Suddenly!
A movement in the corner of the room!
And there is nothing I can do
When I realise with fright
That the spiderman is having me for dinner tonight!

Quietly he laughs and shaking his head
Creeps closer now
Closer to the foot of the bed
And softer than shadow and quicker than flies
His arms are all around me and his tongue in my eyes
"Be still be calm be quiet now my precious boy
Don't struggle like that or I will only love you more
For it's much too late to get away or turn on the light
The spiderman is having you for dinner tonight"

And I feel like I'm being eaten
By a thousand million shivering furry holes
And I know that in the morning I will wake up
In the shivering cold

And the spiderman is always hungry...

night 151 - Trent Reznor - Peter Murphy - Tv On The Radio - Dreams

Ostatnie podzwonne dla Gerarda Smitha. Twoje marzenia się skończyły, Twoje skrzydła opadły...




All your dreams are over now
And all your wings have fallen down
Oh all your dreams are over now
And all your wings have fallen down
She's just like you
So why keep doing what you do
Why cut a friend
Why cruise that mean lean to an end
You could have heel toed
To another place
You could have peeled slow
To a better face

But your heart can't grieve
For your little dreams
Oh no your heart can't grieve
Not for your little dreams

All your dreams are over now
And all your wings have fallen down
All your dreams are over now
And all your wings have fallen down

Broke trust in two
Now no one's looking out for you
Why keep it cruel
Why waste so much to play the fool

And maybe I'm the fool but I think we'd find
That we could all be so so kind
If you'd just leave your tread mill powertrip behind
Oh leave your treadmill powertrip behind
And maybe it's best that you're so so blind
It's best that your so so blind
Because your heart can't grieve
I know your heart can't grieve

I know your heart can't grieve
What your eyes won't see
But you were my favorite moment
Of our dead century

I know your heart can't grieve
What your eyes won't see
But you were my favorite moment
Of our dead century

But all your dreams are over now
And all your wings have fallen down
Oh all your dreams are over now
And all your wings have fallen down

Oh warfarin' terrapin
Unconfined undesigned
Undersigned bantering
Bartering bellowing
Barracking blundering
Pillaging plundering
Living and lavishing
Hammerings harrowing
Flourishing flattening
Levelling reveling
Wrecking and ravaging
Savoring savaging

Oh warfarrin terrapin
Unconfined undesigned
You've got me worried and wondering

All your dreams are over now
And all your wings have fallen down
All your dreams are over now

night 150 - Bombay Bicycle Club - You Already Know

Smutna piosenka o przyjaźni, która nie ma odwagi stać się czymś więcej. I trochę też o przemijaniu. Ukradzione fejsbukowym sąsiadom z bratniego bloga (http://sadsongsfordurtylovers.blogspot.com/). Nie przepadam za takimi słodkościami, ale temat jest mi wyjątkowo bliski.

night 149 - The Cardigans - My Favourite Game

Zostałam nałogową podkradaczką linków. Tym razem piosenka skradziona Michałowi, ale z podrasowaną wersją klipu ;) Smutna prawda o szkodliwości popularnej gry hazardowej w miłość.




I don't know what you're looking for
you haven't found it baby, that's for sure
You rip me up and spread me all around
in the dust of the deed of time

And this is not a case of lust, you see
it's not a matter of you versus of me
It's fine the way you want me on your own
but in the end it's always me alone

And I'm losing my favourite game
you're losing your mind again
I'm losing my baby
losing my favourite game

I only know what I've been working for
another you so I could love you more
I really thought that I could take you there
but my experiment is not getting us anywhere

I had a vision I could turn you right
a stupid mission and a lethal fight
I should have seen it when my hope was new
my heart is black and my body is blue

And I'm losing my favourite game
you're losing your mind again
I'm losing my favourite game
I've tried but you're still the same
I'm losing my baby
you're losing a saviour and a saint

night 148 - ROBOTS IN DISGUISE - 'The Tears' - Featuring NOEL FIELDING

Na dziś smutna piosenka z charakterkiem. Wkurzone dziewczęta śpiewają o głupich chłopcach i nawet troszkę im grożą. Podobno większość zdrad wychodzi na jaw dzięki nieostrożnemu korzystaniu z telefonii komórkowej ;)



Fear of an enemy
A hand to a face
Words I overhear
Stop starting histories
A code in a look
What's that number?
What's that number?

Red light, panic terror,
Error, error!
I'll cut her from ear to ear
Blue funk, panic, terror,
Error, error!
I'll cut her, I'll cut her, I'll cut her, cut her, cut her, cut her
I'll fuck her up

Crazed by my make believe
A tongue down a throat
The grip on your arse
Tales that you tell to me
A touch of your nose
Why did you stammer?
Why did you stammer?
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/r/robots_in_disguise/the_tears.html ]
Red light, panic, terror,
Error, error!
I'll cut you from ear to ear
Blue funk, panic, terror,
Error, error!
I'll cut you, I'll cut you, I'll cut you, cut you, cut you, cut you
I'll fuck you up

I'm your slave, got to taste
The tears, the tears, the tears
I'm your slave, got to taste
I'm your slave, got to taste
The tears, the tears, the tears
I'm your slave, got to taste

Red light, panic, terror,
Error, error!
I'll cut you, I'll cut you, I'll cut you, cut you, cut you, cut you
I'll fuck you up

I'm your slave, got to taste
The tears, the tears, the tears
I'm your slave, got to taste
I'm your slave, got to taste
The tears, the tears, the tears
I'm your slave, got to taste

night 147 - New Order - Crystal

‎Trudno sobie wyobrazić lepszą piosenkę na przywitanie poniedziałku niż "Blue Monday". Ponieważ jednak ten challenge ma być mimo wszystko przyjemnością dla mnie... wybieram coś świeższego :) Dziękuję Harry'emu za mimowolną sugestię.




We're like crystal, we break easy
I'm a poor man, if you leave me
I'm applauded, then forgotten
It was summer, now it's autumn

I don't know what to say, you don't care anyway
I'm a man in a rage (just tell me what I've got to do), with a girl I betrayed
Here comes love, it's like honey
You can't buy it with money, you're not alone anymore,
(whenever you're here with me),
You shock me to the core, you shock me to the core

We're like crystal, it's not easy
With your love, you could feed me
Every man, and every woman
Needs someone, So keep it coming
Keep it coming, keep it coming, keep it coming
Keep it coming, keep it coming, keep it coming
Keep it coming

I don't know what to say, you don't care anyway
I'm a man in a rage (just tell me what I've got to do), with a girl I betrayed
Here comes love, it's like honey
You can't buy it with money, you're not alone anymore,
(whenever you're here with me),
You shock me to the core, you shock me to the core

Keep it coming, keep it coming, keep it coming
Keep it coming, keep it coming, keep it coming
Keep it coming, keep it coming, keep it coming

night 146 - Franz Ferdinand - Auf Achse

‎On ją kocha, ona kocha się z innymi, dramat. Smutna piosenka z przytupem. Do tego metafora jak znalazł na nadchodzące święta...





You see her
You can't touch her
You hear her
You can't hold her
You want her
You can't have her
You want to
But she won't let you

She's not so special
So look what you've done boy (x3)

She's not so special
So look what you've done

Now you wish she'd never
Come back here again
Oh, never come back here again

You see her
You can't touch her
You hear her
You can't hold her
You want her and
You can't have her
You want to
But she won't let you (x2)

She's not so special
So look what you've done boy (x3)

She's not so special
So look what you've done

Now I'm nailed above you
Gushing from my side
It's with your sins
that you have killed me
Thinking of your sins I die
Thinking how you'd let them touch you
How you'd never realise
That I'm ripped and hang forsaken
Knowing never will I rise
Again

You still see her
Oh and you hear her
Ooh and you want her
Oh you want to
You see her
You hear her
You want her
And you still want to

night 145 - Broken Bells - The High Road




We're bound to wait all night
She's bound to run amok
Invested enough in it anyhow
To each his own

The Garden needs sorting out
She curls her lips on the bow
And I don't know if I'm dead or not
To anyone

Come on and get the minimum
Before you open up your eyes
This army has so many heads
To analyze

Come on and get your overdose
Collect it at the borderline
And they want to get up in your head

Because they know and so do I
The high road is hard to find
A detour to your new life
Tell all of your friends goodbye

The dawn to end all nights
That's all we hoped it was
A break from the warfare in your house
To each his own

A soldier is bailing out
He curled his lips on the barrel
And I don't know if the dead can talk
To anyone

Come on and get the minimum
Before you open up your eyes
This army has so many hands
Are you one of us?

Come on and get your overdose
Collect it at the borderline
And they want to get up in your head

Because they know and so do I
The high road is hard to find
A detour to your new life
Tell all of your friends goodbye

It's too late to change your mind
You let loss be your guide

It's too late to change your mind
You let loss be your guide

It's too late to change your mind
You let loss be your guide

It's too late to change your mind
You let loss be your guide

night 144 - IAMX & Imogen Heap - My Secret Friend Official Video

Moim zdaniem Chris nieco przesadził ze stylizacją, a mógł być naprawdę piękną kobietą i to jest między innymi smutne. Fakt, że utopił biedną Imogen, nieco mniej mnie wzrusza.




My secret friend
Oh(I'll) take me(you) to the river
My secret friend
So we can swim forever

You have loved
You were not alone
You have braved the weather
When the storm cut you to the bone
There was always shelter

My secret friend
I'll take you to the river
My secret friend
So we can swim forever

In your skin
To die a little death
This time there's no code word
When everyday frays in hollow ends
Dream sweet love submissive

My secret friend
Oh take me to the river
My secret friend
So we can swim forever

Break my deepest promise
Break my deepest promise
Break my deepest

Break my deepest promise
Break my deepest promise
Break my deepest

Break my deepest promise
Break my deepest promise
Break my deepest

My secret friend
Oh(I'll) take me(you) to the river
My secret friend
So we can swim forever

night 143 - Failure - Swans

Dziś trochę mrocznej poezji.




And I, I've been lonely
And I, I've been blind
And I, I've learned nothing
So my hands are firmly tied
To the sinking leadweight
of failure

I've worked hard all my life
Money slips through my hands
My face in the mirror tells me
It's no surprise that I am
Pushing the stone up the hill
of failure

They tempt me with violence
They punish me with ideals
And they crush me with an image
Of my life that's nothing but unreal
Except on the goddamned slaveship
of failure

I'll drown here trying
To get up for some air
But each time I think I breathe
I'm laid on with a double share
Of the punishing burden
of failure

I don't deserve to be down here
But I'll never leave
And I, I've learned one thing
You can't escape the beast
In the null and void pit
of failure

When I get my hands on some money
I'll kiss its green skin
And I'll ask its dirty face
"Where the hell have you been?"
"I am the fuel that fires the engines
of failure."

I'll be old and broken down
I'll forget who and where I am
I'll be senile or forgotten
But I'll remember and understand
You can bank your hard-earned money
on failure

I saw my father crying
I saw my mother break her hand
On a wall that wouldn't weep
But that certainly held in
The mechanical moans of a dying man
Who was a failure

My back hurts me when I bend
Because I carry a load
And my brain hurts like a knife-hole
Because I've yet to be shown
How to pull myself out from
The sucking quicksand
of failure

Some people lie in hell
Many bastards succeed
But I, I've learned nothing
I can't even elegantly bleed
Out the poison blood
of failure

night 142 - Phantogram - "When I'm Small"

Sad & sexy :)




Lucy's underground
She's got a mouth to feed
Am I underground
Or am I in between

Lucy's underground
She's got a mouth to feed
Am I underground
Or am I in too deep


Show me love
You've got your hand on the button of
Showing love
You've got your hand on the button now


Lucy's underground
She's never coming back
Am I still alive
Or has the light gone black


Take me underground
Take me all the way
And bring me to the fire
Throw me in the flames


So show me love
You've got your hand on the button of
Showing love
You've got your hand on the button now


I would rather die
I would rather die
Than to be with you

night 141 - Sia - Paranoid Android (Radiohead Cover)

Covery Radiohead to mogłaby być osobna kategoria ;) Jakiś mam taki smutno-dziewczyński nastrój, więc będę katować sentymentalnymi kobietkami...




Please could you stop the noise, I'm trying to get some rest
From all the unborn chicken voices in my head
What's that, what's that?

When I am king you will be first against the wall
With your opinion which is of no consequence at all
What's that, what's that?

Ambition makes you look pretty ugly
Kicking, squealing, Gucci little piggy

You don't remember, you don't remember
Why don't you remember my name?
Off with his head, man, off with his head, man
Why don't you remember my name?
I guess he does

Rain down, rain down, come on rain down on me
From a great height, from a great height, height
Rain down, rain down, come on rain down on me
From a great height, from a great height, height

That's it sir, you're leaving
The crackle of pig skin
The dust and the screaming
The yuppies networking
The panic, the vomit
The panic, the vomit
God loves his children
God loves his children, yeah

night 140 - Howling Bells - A ballad for the bleeding hearts

‎Jedna z ładniejszych piosenek jakie się tu wydarzyły i wydarzą. Punkt obowiązkowy. Myślę, że analiza tekstu jest absolutnie zbędna. Szkoda tylko, że bez obrazka.





And I will wait for this moment to come around
And I will scream just to get you to hold me down

Tried all I could
Told you to move
Buried our hearts with our hands
You told me a lie
I turned a blind eye
And never a lie did I hear
Now I fear

That I will wait
For this moment to come around
And I will scream just to get you to hold me down

I'm not crying anymore
Coz love isn't love till you bleed
And I'm not lying for you now
My heart wants to beat with the sound
But I found out
Just go ahead and cry

Tried all I could
I told you to move
We buried our hearts in our hands

You told me a lie
I turned a blind eye
Never a lie did I hear
Now I fear

That I will wait
For this moment to come around
And I will scream just to get you to hold me down

night 139- We Are Scientists - Textbook

Czy ktoś pamięta jeszcze We Are Scientists? Otóż okazuje się, że oni również nagrywali smutne piosenki. Na przykład o tym, że czasem lepiej nie znać prawdy.




Fallin' over backwards for you, fauning over everybody else
I put myself in that position every single time I have the chance
I know it's not my business to be digging up these things I shouldn't know
But 20 years of bad decisions haven't taught me much at all

In separate events you're making every pretened it's not your fault
And all of this offense you're taking doesn't really bother me at all
Twist my arm if that's the way you think you're gonna work this whole thing out
You know you own my body, but don't think that you control my mouth

Having every question answered isn't gonna help at all
Having every question answered isn't gonna help at all
Having every question answered isn't gonna help at all
Having every question doesn't help

When you're not supposed to know
You're not supposed to know
You're not supposed to know
Anything

Another textbook situation, everything I think I know I've read
What's the point if medication only makes me wish that I were dead?
It's pretty clear -- the truth, I mean -- it's written here on every single page
I'm smitten but not stupid; I can read it all over your face

Having every question answered isn't gonna help at all
Having every question answered isn't gonna help at all
Having every question answered isn't gonna help at all
Having every question doesn't help

When you're not supposed to know
You're not supposed to know
You're not supposed to know
Anything

You're not supposed to know
Anything

night 138 - Blonde Redhead - The Dress

Na piątek piosenka o wielkim rozczarowaniu. Nic osobistego, chociaż takie rozczarowania czają się na każdym kroku. :)




Tears you see on my face, you do have something to do with
Fear starts creeping up when you have so much to lose
Your love waits you while you're cheating
Lightning strikes you when you're moving

The light you see in my eyes, you do have something to do with
Play the game namely love, play it like you have nothing to lose
Horse loves you when you move with him
People hate you when you're changing

Don't let the dress trick you
I love you less now that I know you
I won't count the scars again
I love you less now that I know you

The glow you see on my face, you do have something to do with
Fear starts creeping up when you have so much to lose
Your love wait you while you're cheating
Lighting strikes you when you're moving

Don't let me wonder away
I love you less now that I know you
Don't let the dress trick you
I love you less now that I know you

I won't count the scars again
Because I love you

night 137 - Metronomy - She Wants

Czwartek. Uwielbiam smutne piosenki do tańca. Jutro weekend zaczyna się dla wszystkich - zatańczmy ze łzami w oczach ;)



She sleeps her soul
So soft and trim
Arranging papers
Around the bed
And if she's dreaming deep tonight
I lie with her by reading light
A glass of water by her side
I'm gone in hopes of getting tired

(Chorus)
I call her shots
'Til you wake up
Count every second
On every clock
It's getting late
Yeah that I know
The hours come
The hours go

Then twitching lips
And twitching arms
And there you're lying
Your make up on them
Oh, Girl if you're dreaming deep tonight
I'll lie with you by reading light
A glass of water by your side
I'm gone in hopes of getting tired

(Chorus)
I call her shots
Till you wake up
Count every second
On every clock
It's getting late
Yeah that I know
The hours come
The hours go

I call her shots
Till you wake up
Count every second
On every clock
It's getting late
Yeah that I know
The hours come

The hours come (x 17)

night 136 - Patrick Wolf - Ari's Song (Nico Cover)

Nadrabiam zaległości. Środa. Smutna kołysanka o tym, że marzenia spełniają się tylko w snach. W oryginale Nico, tutaj boski Patrick - przede wszystkim dlatego, że to piosenka na wczoraj, a poza tym jego wykonanie jest po prostu o niebo lepsze :)




Sail away, sail away my little boy
Let the wind fill your heart with light and joy
Sail away my little boy

Let the rain wash away your cloudy days
Sail away into a dream
Let the wind send you a fantasy
Of the ancient silver sea

Now you see that only dreams
Can send you where you want to be
Now you find those faces
Are not holding places
Where you thought they'd be
And later as you go again
You will agree
That it was all a dream

Sail away, sail away my little boy
Let the wind fill your heart with light and joy
Sail away my little boy

night 135 - The Last Shadow Puppets - "My Mistakes Were Made For You" (Acoustic)

Piękna, nostalgiczna piosenka o utraconej miłości. <3




About as subtle as an earthquake, I know,
My mistakes were made for you.
And in the backroom of the bad dream, she came,
And whisked me away, enthused.

And it's as solid as a rock rolling down a hill,
The fact is that it probably will hit something,
On the hazardous terrain.

And we're just following the flock,
Around and in-between,
Before we're smashed to smithereens
Like they were, then we scramble from the blame
And it's the fame that put words in her mouth,
She couldn't help, but spit them out.
Innocence and arrogance entwined,
In the filthiest of minds.

She was bitten on her birthday,
And now a face in the crowd, she's not.
And I suspected now forever the shape
She came to escape, is forgot.

And it's a lot to ask her not to sting.
And give her less than everything;
Around your crooked conscious she will wind.

And we're just following the flock,
Around and in-between,
Before we're smashed to smithereens
Like they were, and we scrambled from the blame.
And it's the fame that put words in her mouth,
She couldn't help but spit them out
Around your crooked conscious she will wind.

And it's a lot to ask her not to sting,
And give her less than everything
Innocence and arrogance entwined.

night 134 - Deftones- No Ordinary Love (Sade Cover)

Dzisiaj trochę banalnie - smutna piosenka o miłości. Myślę jednak, że wykonanie jest godne tego by ją tu umieścić :)




I gave you all the love I got
I gave you more than I could give
I gave you love
I gave you all that I have inside
And you took my love
You took my love
Didn't I tell you
What I believe
Did somebody say that
A love like that won't last
Didn't I give you
All that I've got to give baby

I gave you all the love I got
I gave you more than I could give
I gave you love
I gave you all that I have inside
And you took my love
You took my love

I keep crying
I keep trying for you
There's nothing like you and I baby

This is no ordinary love
No ordinary Love
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary Love

When you came my way
You brightened every day
With your sweet smile

Didn't I tell you
What I believe
Did somebody say that
A love like that won't last
Didn't I give you
All that I've got to give baby

This is no ordinary love
No ordinary Love
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary Love

I keep crying
I keep trying for you
There's nothing like you and I baby

This is no ordinary love
No ordinary Love
This is no ordinary love
No ordinary Love

Keep trying for you
Keep crying for you
Keep flying for you
Keep flying I'm falling

I'm falling

Keep trying for you
Keep crying for you
Keep flying for you
Keep flying for you I'm falling
I'm falling

night 133 - Lykke Li - "Tonight"




watch my back so i make sure
you're right behind me as before
yesterday the night before tomorrow
dry my eyes so you won't know
dry my eyes so i won't show
i know you're right behind me

and don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight

walk the surface of this town
with high heels above the ground
and high horses that we know
keep us safe until the night
we know them all, i know it all
stay put and play along
'cause i'm looking for my friend
now i got you, got you

don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight

i dry my eye, dry my eye
falling deeper by the hour
dry my eye
dry my eye, dry my eye
don't let me fall deeper now
dry my eye

don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight
don't you let me go, let me go tonight

night 132 - Interpol - "Wrecking Ball"

Nie, żebym szła na łatwiznę, ale wstyd by było, gdyby Interpol pojawił się tylko raz w całym challenge'u. Piosenka o wiosennych rozterkach i lękach związanych z miłością. Podmiot liryczny przekonuje ukochaną by nie obawiała się zaangażowania w intensywnie uczuciową relację. Wszyscy wiemy jak to się zazwyczaj kończy. Demolką. Uwielbiam tę metaforę.




can it be true?
nobody warned you
nobody told you to make up your mind
nobody warned you
that i could just waltz through and shake up your style
i'm inside
like a wrecking ball through your eyes
and i change it all from inside

(don't wait)

strange and fine
all this hardware
slope of time
and that one's for me
go inside
going somewhere
hopeless tactile
and that one's for me
open wide
yawn like new year

nobody warned you

that i could just waltz through and shake up your style

strange and fine
all this hardware

and that one's for me
go inside
going somewhere
hopeless tactile
and that one's for me
open wide
yawn like new year
stay and fight
stay and fight

night 131 - Ladytron - "Seventeen"

Na wczoraj, jako że mieliśmy piątek i do tego prima aprilis, smutna piosenka do tańca.





They only want you when you're seventeen
When you're twenty-one
You're no fun
They take a polaroid and let you go
Say they'll let you know
So come on

We only want you when you're seventeen
When you're twenty-one
You're no fun
