night 285 - Sia - I go to sleep

Tęskliwość mnie dziś wzięła...





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

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



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

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

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

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

it's your life and it's your love

night 283 - Peggy Sue - The New Song




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

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

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

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

night 282 - Slow club - Sorry about the doom




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

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

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

night 281 - Sad Song - Psapp

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




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

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

I don't wanna live no more (x4)

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

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

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

I don't wanna live no more (x4)

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




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

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

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

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

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

ight 276 - Luke Temple - Only A Ghost




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

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

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

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

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

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

night 275 - Dear Reader - Never Goes




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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

night 272 - The Bowerbirds - In our Talons

Taki hippisowski protest song w obronie naszych braci mniejszych :)




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

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

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

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

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