night 350 - Arab Strap - "New Birds"

Coś się wydarzyło. Jest Ci smutno i jesteś zła i nagle okazuje się, że ktoś już dawno napisał o tym piosenkę, tyle że narracja jest rodzaju męskiego.

You just have to be sure you're doing the right thing.




You just have to be sure you're doing the right thing. I mean it's very easy to forget - she's was just sitting there in the pub with her new friends and her new life and her new hair and it might been five years but you'd know just to look at her.

I wasn't even sure it was her at first, I was ready to walk away but she smiled and called me over and we said hello for a bit. When we went back to our tables we were tried not to look over at each other and told our friends to stop staring.

I didn't see her for the rest of the night, but by closing time the beer's kicked in so I go up and speak to her and we end up going for a walk and talking about our new homes, our new jobs, our new friends and our new birds.

She says she's been going out with him now for about two and a half years, but they don't live together so he'd never find out. And you think about chasing her about school when you were wee and lying in your bed and listening to love songs and pretending they were about you. And the first time you asked her out she said no but one night you went to a wedding and when you came back to the pub she'd changed her mind and you went out. You remember the way she swung her arms when she held your hand but you can't remember how she kissed and now you've got the chance to find out.

But you have to remember there's this other kiss. And she's sitting at home, wondering where you are and what you're doing. And you work hard on this kiss and you know it inside out, it's as much yours as it is hers, and it took a long time to get right, it took months of practice and months of embarassment but now you've got it perfected and you've been looking forward to that kiss all week.

You can see her breath in the air between your faces as you stand in the leaves and she just asks you straight out if you want to come and stay at her flat. But you make sure you get separate taxis and you go home and there might be a slight regret and maybe you'll wonder what you missed but you have to remember the kiss that you worked so hard on - and you'll know you've done the right thing.

night 348 - Ane Brun - "Words"




Words - take her with you
let her rest in your rhymes
Words - take her away
somewhere beyond time

Words - ease her breathing
lay her softly on the floor
there - let her linger
and listen like ever before

Leave her windows uncovered at night
and fill her room with the citylights
as they illuminate the sky
it reminds her of the people outside
cause she won't sleep unless she heals her loneliness

Walk with her beneath the treetops
create new paths and memories
show her how the sunlight
glances through the gaps between the leaves

Words - help her change the world
in only one verse
tell her to reach for the stars
and to always put love first

Leave her windows uncovered at night
and fill her rooms with the citylights
as they illuminate the sky
it reminds her of the people outside
it reminds her of the people
it reminds her of the people
it reminds her of the people outside

night 347 - Lianne La Havas ft. Willy Mason - No Room For Doubt





You caught me, guilty
Taking the pieces of you
That night, you took flight
I couldn't decide what to do
I won't let a safe bet
Continue to make me go blue
I could go solo
Would that be the right thing to do?

We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you
We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you

I tiptoe, too slow
Out of the door to your house
I know you know
That this way leads me out
Outside, too bright
You're within I'm without
You're within

We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you
We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you
Please sleep softly
Leave me no room for doubt
Please sleep softly
Leave me no room for doubt
Please sleep softly
Leave me no room for doubt
Please sleep softly
Leave me no room for doubt
Leave me no room for doubt

We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you
We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you
We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you
We all make mistakes, we do
I learnt from you
Oh

Please sleep softly
Leave me no
Please sleep softly
Leave me no room for doubt
Please sleep softly
Leave me no
Please sleep softly
Leave me no room for doubt

night 346 - faultline ft. michael stipe greenfields



Once there were greenfields kissed by the sun;
Once there were valleys where rivers used to run;
Once there was blue sky with white clouds high above;
Once they were part of an everlasting love.
We were the lovers who strolled through greenfields.

Greenfields are gone now, parched by the sun;
Gone from the valleys where rivers used to run;
Gone with the cold wind that swept into my heart;
Gone with the lovers who let their dreams depart.
Where are the greenfields that we used to roam?

I'll never know what made you run away.
How can I keep searching when dark clouds hide the day?
I only know there's nothing here for me,
Nothing in this wide world left for me to see.

But I'll keep on waitin' 'til you return.
I'll keep on waiting until the day you learn
You can't be happy while your heart's on the roam.
You can't be happy until you bring it home,
Home to the greenfields and me once again.

night 345 - Garbage - The Trick Is To Keep Breathing




She's not the kind of girl
Who likes to tell the world
About the way she feels about herself
She takes a little time
In making up her mind
She doesn't want to fight against the tide

[Chorus]
Lately I'm not the only one
I say never trust anyone
Always the one who has to drag her down
Maybe you'll get what you want this time around

Can't bear to face the truth
So sick he cannot move
And when it hurts he takes it out on you

[Chorus]

The trick is to keep breathing
The trick is to keep breathing

She knows the human heart
And how to read the stars
Now everything's about to fall apart

I won't be the one who's going to let you down
Maybe you'll get what you want this time around
(the trick is to keep breathing)
I won't be the one who's going to let you down
(the trick is to keep breathing)
Maybe you'll get what you want this time around
The trick is to keep breathing [Repeat: x7]

night 344 - We Fell To Earth - Careful What You Wish For





It ticks like a clock,
With no sense of time.

It will break you down,
And eat you alive.


It ticks like a clock,
With no turning back.

It will take you down,
With the same heart attached.

night 343 - The Drums - Days (Trentemøller Remix)




And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you

And I worked so hard
And I killed myself
And you broke my bones
And I sold my soul

And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you

And I could have been your other
And I could have been your sister
Be your twin brother
I just wanted to be

And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you

We were just wasting time x6

And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you

And our days go by
And I never needed you
And our days go by
And I never needed you

night 342 - The National - "Cherry Tree"

Tajemnice, tajemnice... najlepiej zachować je dla siebie.
Mistrzowie wśród smutasów tym razem w dosyć energetycznym wydaniu dramatycznym.






Take us down and all apart
Cherry Tree
Lay us out on the table

Your sharp alright

But no one is asking so leave it alone
Leave it alone
Can we
No one is asking so leave it alone
Leave it alone
Can we

Loose lips sink ships

Don't Look at me
I'm only breathing
Don't look at me I'm indiscreet
Don't look at me
I'm only breathing
Don't look at me I'm indiscreet

Your sharp alright

But no one is asking so leave it alone
Leave it alone
Can we
No one is asking so leave it alone
Leave it alone
Can we

Loose lips sink ships

Can we show
A little discipline
Can we show
A little discipline
Can we
Can we

Loose lips sink ships

Can we show
A little discipline
Can we show
A little discipline
Can we

night 341 - Portugal The Man - "Let You Down"



It's a shame that we need everything
Still everything I see, I need

Just go,
Please don't go
I, I want all, all, all that I see, see, see

Just go,
Please don't go
'Cause I'll only let you down
And I'll only let you down

And watch the world spinnin' 'round
And know that it's alright, alright, alright, alright, alright,
Alright

Just go,
Please don't go
'Cause I'll only let you down
And I'll only let you down

And watch the world, watch the world,
Watch the world, watch the world, watch the world

'Cause I'll only let you down
Only let you down
Let you down

night 340 - At The Drive-In - 198d




this is forgiven
if the uniform fits
postponed
at the first showing
this is the tension mold
of frozen icicles
and it feels like it's snowing
you speak in tongues
tremors that warn us of ourselves

born in hearts
etched in cold
at the first showing
(walk away)

nothing bleeds the same
my travel expenses paid
postponed
at the first showing
this dance is out of rhythm
we trip on excess steps
postponed
at the first showing
you speak in tongues
tremors that warn us of ourselves

born in hearts
etched in cold
swingsets pay
the playground toll

tremors that hold us
tremors that warn us
nothing bleeds like

night 339 - Smith & Burrows - Wonderful Life

Muzyczna afirmacja prostej radości życia - tylko dlaczego w każdym wykonaniu brzmi tak smutno?







Here I go out to sea again
The sunshine fills my hair
And dreams hang in the air
Gulls in the sky and in my blue eyes
You know it feels unfair
There's magic everywhere

Look at me standing
Here on my own again
Up straight in the sunshine
No need to laugh and cry
It's a wonderful wonderful life
No need to laugh and cry
It's a wonderful wonderful life

The sun's in your eyes
The heat is in your hear
They seem to hate you because you're there
And I need a friend
Oh I need a friend to make me happy
Not stand here on my own


I need a friend
Oh I need a friend
To make me happy
Not so alone


]Wonderful life
It's a wonderful life

night 338 - The Bear That Wasn't - Winterwandering

Smutny belgijski niedźwiadek...



night 337 - The Narrative - Eyes Closed



The clouds hold
A storm over this road...
You're dreaming...
Or at least you've got your eyes closed

And this dormant love you've built inside your stubborn ways,
Well its begging now, for air...
...Of the silent breath of change...
As these waves crash against the highway cliffs...
I'm so scared they'll flood me where I sit...
Well the roads, they change to waterways...
They never carry home...

You pull back (pull back) and you angle towards the window...
Now the rain is crashing down,
And oh my god, you're beautiful...
And i'm so unsighted, still I pray you'll hold back your escape....
Yeah we still got time
And in my mind these bends could be steered straight...

As these waves crash against the highway cliffs,
I'm so scared they'll flood me where i sit...
Well the roads, they change to waterways...
They never carry home

Well, I'm sorry for the things I had to say...
And I'm sorry i pushed your hand away from the radio...
I pushed your hand away from the radio...
I should have just let it go...

night 335 - Stone Temple Pilots - Creep

Cóż ja na to poradzę, że one ciągle za mną chodzą... Smutne i sentymentalne do tego :) Nie przeszkadza mi nawet nieco grafomański tekst i fakt, że ten utwór boleśnie uświadamia nam skąd biorą się na polskim rynku muzycznym potworki pokroju Piotra Kupichy i jak bardzo można sponiewierać tak szlachetny wzorzec.






Forward yesterday
Makes me wanna stay
What they said was real
Makes me wanna steal
Livin' under house
Guess I'm livin', I'm a mouse
All's I gots is time
Got no meaning, just a rhyme

Take time with a wounded hand
'Cause it likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand
'Cause I like to steal
Take time with a wounded hand
'Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal
I'm half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, I'm half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
Well, I'm half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be


Feelin' uninspired
Think I'll start a fire
Everybody run
Bobby's got a gun
Think you're kinda neat
Then she tells me I'm a creep
Friends don't mean a thing
Guess I'll leave it up to me



Take time with a wounded hand
'Cause it likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand
Guess I like to steal
Take time with a wounded hand
'Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal
I'm half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be

Take time with a wounded hand
'Cause it likes to heal
Take time with a wounded hand
Guess I like to steal
Take time with a wounded hand
'Cause it likes to heal, I like to steal
I'm half the man I used to me
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be
This I feel as the dawn
It fades to gray
I'm half the man I used to be, half the man I used to be,
Half the man I used to be

Must enjoy the sea
Sought by single M
Mrs. Destiny
Send photo to address
Is it you and me?

Reply to single M:
My name is Caroline
Cell phone number here
Call if you have the time
28 and bored
Grieving over loss
Sorry to be heavy
But heavy is the cost
Heavy is the cost

Reply to Caroline:
Thanks so much for response
These things can be scary
Not always what you want
How about a drink?
This ancient club at noon
I'll phone you first I guess
I hope I see you soon

I never got your name
I assume you're 33
Your voice, it sounded kind
I hope that you like me
When you see my face
I hope that you don't laugh
I'm not a film star beauty
I'll send a photograph
I hope that you don't laugh

Note to single M:
Why did you not show up?
I waited for an hour
I finally gave up
I thought once that I saw you
I thought that you saw me
I guess we'll never meet now
It wasn't meant to be
It wasn't mean to be
I was sure you saw me
But it wasn't meant to be

Wanted: single F

Must enjoy the sun
Must enjoy the sea
Sought by single M
Nothing too heavy

night 332 - Cinematic Orchestra - To Build A Home



There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills...
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust...
This is a place where I don't feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home...

Cause, I built a home
for you
for me

Until it disappeared
from me
from you

And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust...

Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed it's knees

By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as you held onto me
I held on as tightly as you held onto me...

Cause, I built a home
for you
for me

Until it disappeared
from me
from you

And now, it's time to leave and turn to dust...

night 331 - The Magnetic Fields - Epitaph for My Heart



"Caution: to prevent electric shock do not remove cover
No user-serviceable parts insde Refer servicing to qualified
service personnel"
Let this be the epitaph for my heart Cupid put too much poison in the dart
This is the epitaph for my heart because it's gone, gone gone
and life goes on and on anon and death goes on, world without end
and you're not my friend Who will mourn the passing of my heart
Will its little droppings climb the pop chart Who'll take its ashes and,
singing, fling them from the top of the Brill Building And life goes on,
and dawn, and dawn and death goes on, world without end and you're
not my friend

night 328 - Shearwater-Black Eyes



Come down from the lion's back
call down to the endless sleepers
bring light to the dimming days
that run in an endless stream
now

In the black of the eye
in the heat of the act
is a crack in the ice

Come down from the iron wheel
come back from the endless labor
look down on the rolling waves
that strike on the crumbling reef
now

is what the body becomes
in the bellow aloud
in the crack of the drum
and as the body dies
what is left from the heart
burns white

No light on the western shore
no sign of the ships at anchor
no sound but the roaring winds
no warmth but the life behind the eye

and what the body allows
is a flash in the heart
until the memory dies
and a forever life
is an infinite lie
hung wide

night 327 - Father John Misty - Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings




Jesus Christ, girl
What are people gonna think
When I show up to one of several funerals
I've attended for grandpa this week
With you
With me

Someone's got to help me dig
Someone's got to help me dig

Jesus Christ, girl
It hasn't been long so it seems
Since I was picking out an island and a tomb for you
At the Hollywood Cemetery
You kiss
On me

We should let this dead guy sleep
We should let this dead guy sleep

Jesus Christ, girl
I laid up for hours in a daze
Retracing the expanse of your American back
With Adderall and weed in my veins
You came
I think
Cause the marble made my cheeks look pink
But I'm unsure of so many things

Someone's got to help me dig
Someone's got to help me dig
Someone's got to help me dig

night 319 - Two Against One (Feat. Jack White)

Taki ładny obrazek właśnie pojawił się w sieci, że naprawdę wstyd byłoby go zignorować. Danger Mouse, Daniele Luppi i Jack White w smutnym utworze mówiącym o nierównej walce, w której nawet ty sam nie jesteś po swojej stronie. Znamy to. A tak nawiasem mówiąc: od października prześladują mnie jelenie... o co kaman?
