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.
