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.

night 217 - Bodies of water - Only you

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

night 196 - The Temper Trap - Soldier On

Zdarza mi się przypomnieć sobie przepiękną piosenkę, która idealnie podsumowuje dzień. To jest właśnie taka piosenka, ewidentnie na dzisiaj i do tego z dedykacją. Człowiek czasem walczy, czasem zwycięża, a czasem musi po prostu przetrwać przyciskając serce do ziemi.





who wants to know
all that is gold is rusting
no one will know
when seasons cease to change and..
how far we've gone
how far we're going
it's the here and the now
and the love for the sound
of the moments that keep us moving

waves crash along
the battered, lonely lighthouse
tomorrow she's gone
and if not, someday somehow
are these hands a waste
well this side of mortality is
scaring me to death
to death

don't think about it at all
just keep your head low
and don't think about it all

soldier on, soldier on
keep your heart close to the ground
soldier on, soldier on, keep your heart
close to the ground

don't think about it at all
just keep your head low
don't think about it
at all

yeah, will you take me tonight
yeah, will you take me tonight
yeah, will you take me tonight

oh...tonight

soldier on
soldier on
keep your heart
close to the ground

night 195 - Van She - "Strangers"



You can blind me with your foxy lips
i'll let you run me down
big shoes won't you come with me in the rain
i want you
big shoes can you formulate
Any way is something
I have fun with you
its non-saturated fat

cause strangers talk
be careful what you feel
there's something there
I told ya, i'm not done with you

Might teach her tricks to be your heart
she won't let me down
hey tangerine you've fallen
dance with me or notice someone else
i'm going to kiss you on your back
i feel so ..up
changing me cause i am nothing anyway

cause strangers talk
be careful what you feel
there's something there
I told ya, i'm not done with you

cause strangers talk
careful what you feel
there's something there
I told ya, i'm not done with you
done with you
done with you

Can you pretend I'm not French the way you thought
over there chucking with someone else in the dark
home again, i know it's really you, turning blue
now i'm alone seeing space ships in the dark (space ships, space ships)

cause strangers talk
careful what you feel
there's something there
I told ya, i'm not done with you

cause strangers talk
careful what you feel
there's something there
I told ya, i'm not done with you
done with you
done with you
you
done with you

night 194 - Vast - Touched

Dzisiaj piosenka z soboty, czyli urodzinowe guilty pleasure. Przede wszystkim najgorszy z filmów Toma Tykwera, który uwielbiam, Franka do której mam ewidentną słabość i Vast, który nigdy nie znalazłby się na mojej liście, gdyby nie fakt, że nie znoszę muzyki z tego filmu.




touched
you say that i am too
so much of what you say is true
i'll never find someone
quite like you
again
i'll never find someone
quite like you
like you

the razors and the dying roses
plead i don't leave you alone
the demi-gods and
hungry ghosts
god, god knows i'm not at home
i'll never find someone
quite like you
again
i'll never find someone
quite like you
again

i, i looked into your eyes and
saw a world that does not exist
i looked into your eyes and
saw a world i wish i was in

i'll never find someone
quite as touched as you
i'll never love someone
quite the way
that i loved you

night 193 - Erlend Oye - Every Party Has A Winner And A Loser

Piosenka na piątek. It's my party and I'll cry if I want to!


Every party's got a winner and a loser,
I'm jumping out of the game
by being a referee
Sometimes all I can do
find a spot out of the light
feel like a Japanese

Every party's got a winner and a loser,
some girls are never alone
I'm always a little late
Each our own individual game plan
We ploy in order to stay
out of the bottom half

Who's there with whom?
Who failed to show?
Who'll leave alone?

Since the birth of the very idea,
way back in hellenical times
at the house of a bearded man
Every party's got a winner and a loser
One host who's gonna regret
telling all they could feel like home
One Jew that no one invited
Three guys in love with one girl
who takes hours to say goodbye

night 192 - Wong Kar Wai's Happy Together + The Whitest Boy Alive's Island *New trac...

Pomyślałam, że pociągnę wątek tańca ze łzami w oczach. Kolejna skoczna, acz melancholijna piosenka, a do tego z ładnym filmowym obrazkiem. Na czwartek :)




when I got back along my road,
all the trees had come out as green.
nobody called for many days.
I was left in my little world.
lived through the smell of painted floors,
echoing the sound.
off running water through the pipes,
and posters falling down.
when I woke up the second day,
all the noises have disappeared.
down the street I chose a path,
and walked to the end of it.
of all the words you sent to me,
there was one that I couldn't bear.
one that for me meant everything,
I think you got mixed up with care,
taking care, taking care.
live on the island.
live on the island.
live on the island.
live on the island.

night 191 - Kamp! - Breaking a ghost's heart

Kajam się okrutnie za niemalże tygodniowe opóźnienie, nawet nie będę próbowała się tłumaczyć. Wrzucam natomiast mój ulubiony rodzaj piosenki - smutna, ale do tańca :) Środa.




I caught your eyes
You've got me hypnotized
I'll take your hands
I'll get your heart
i'll get your eyes

I'll take it slow
But i'm just dying now to know
If you're still here
Catching my eyes
Playing my tunes


I caught your eyes
You've got me so suprised
I'll take your breast
I'll take your legs
I'll take your face

I'll take it slow
But i'm just dying now to know
If you're still here
Catching my eyes
Playing my tunes


And I...
I'll been watching for all planets
Until the day you'll close my eyes
My eyes

And I...
I've been chasing for your shadows
Until i found you are a ghost
And then I've lost my
And then I've lost my
And then I've lost my side


Ind I...
I've been chasing for your shadows
Until i found you are a ghost

And now
The way you look at me tonight
Send shivers get down my spine
And then i broke your
Then i broke your
Then i broke your heart

night 190 - Too late - M83




I look into your eyes
Diving into the ocean
I look into your eyes
Falling

Like a wall of stars
We are ripe to fall

And if you are a ghost
I'll call your name again
And if you are a ghost
I'll call your name...

You, always.
