It's A Beautiful Day - Bombay Calling (live 1978)



Το κομμάτι που "ενέπνευσε" το Child In Time (Από το ομώνυμο [1969] LP των It's A Beautiful Day)

Deep Purple - Child In Time


Το Child In Time εμφανίστηκε στο In Rock [1970]
888888888888888888888888888
Sweet child in time you'll see the line
The line that's drawn between the good and the bad
See the blind man shooting at the world
Bullets flying taking toll
If you've been bad, Lord I bet you have
And you've been hit by flying lead
You'd better close your eyes and bow your head
And wait for the ricochet

Και η Νορβηγίδα Kari Rueslåtten εδώ και μερικά χρόνια δεν ανήκει στο συγκρότημα που την ανέδειξε (3rd And The Mortal).To River βρίσκεται στο προσωπικό της LP Pilot (2002).

________***********_________

dark as the colour of a river
i taste your name
roll it around my tongue
dark as the colour of a river
i sense there's a danger
that does not hinder me
i take you in
before i realise
and i breathe with you
before i realise
like a lover
down the river
like the stories never told
like a mirror
of the river
with you i see myself
dark as the colour of a river
you're coming closer
i dare not even speak
dark as the colour of a river
i see you're trembling
i reach out my hand
no regrets
they're wasted anyway
turn around
i'm not here to harm you

Nightwish - Kuolema Tekee Taiteilijan



Εδώ η πρώην τραγουδίστρια των Nightwish , Tarja Turunen τραγουδά στα φινλανδικά
((((((((((((((==========)))))))))))))))))
Kerran vain haaveeni nähdä sain
En pienuutta alla tähtien tuntenut
Kerran sain kehtooni kalterit
Vankina sieltä kirjettä kirjoitan

Luojani, luoksesi anna minun tulla siksi miksi lapseni minua luulee

Sinussa maailman kauneus
Josta kuolema teki minusta taiteilijan

Luojani, luoksesi anna minun tulla siksi miksi lapseni minua luulee

Luojani, luoksesi anna minun tulla siksi miksi lapseni minua luulee

Oman taivaan tänne loin
Anna minun päästä pois

Oman taivaan tänne loin
Anna minun päästä pois



(ENGLISH TRANSLATION)

Death Makes An Artist

Only once I could see my dream
Didn't feel the smallness under the stars
Once I got bars in my cradle
As a prisoner I write a letter from there

My Lord, let me come to you, let me become what my child thinks I am *
In you is the beauty of the world, of which death made me an artist
My Lord, let me come to you, let me become what my child thinks I am

My own heaven I created here
Let me get away
My own heaven I created here
Let me get away

Nightwish - Eva



Το νέο single των Nightwish. Όλα τα έσοδα από την κυκλοφορία του στην Ευρώπη θα δοθούν στο ίδρυμα για παιδιά Die Arche.

NWNWNWNWNWNWNWNWNWNWNW
Six thirty winter morn
Snow keeps falling, silent dawn
A rose by any other name
Eva leaves her Swanbrook home
A kindest heart which always made
Me ashamed of my own
She walks alone but not without her name

Eva flies away
Dreams the world far away
In this cruel children's game
There's no friend to call her name
Eva sails away
Dreams the world far away
The Good in her will be my sunflower field

Mocked by man to depths of shame
Little girl with life ahead
For a memory of one kind word
She would stay among the beasts
Time for one more daring dream
Before her escape, edenbeam
We kill with her own loving heart

Eva flies away
Dreams the world far away
In this cruel children's game
There's no friend to call her name
Eva sails away
Dreams the world far away
The Good in her will be my sunflower field

Tim Buckley - Once I Was



Από το κορυφαίο για μένα LP του Tim Buckley : Goodbye and Hello [1967]
-------wwwwwwwwwww--------

Once I was a soldier
And I fought on foreign sands for you
Once I was a hunter
And I brought home fresh meat for you
Once I was a lover

And I searched behind your eyes for you
And soon therell be another
To tell you I was just a lie

And sometimes I wonder
Just for a while
Will you remember me

And though you have forgotten
All of our rubbish dreams
I find myself searching
Through the ashes of our ruins
For the days when we smiled
And the hours that ran wild
With the magic of our eyes
And the silence of our words

And sometimes I wonder
Just for a while
Will you remember me

Kamelot - Ghost Opera


Το Ghost Opera προέρχεται από το ομώνυμο LP των Kamelot που κυκλοφορεί σε λίγες μέρες
ddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
Once a while
When your sorrows have a name
And day is dark as night
No remorse and no redemption
Close the door
Can you hear the crowd is waiting
For the last encore
Screaming out for my attention

Chanting my name

Welcome all to curtain call
At the opera
Raging voices in my mind
Rise above the orchestra
Like a crescendo of gratitude

This is my song

Like the dead
I am on the other side
Their howling in my head
No remorse and no redemption
Hush my dear
Let the music fill the night
And soon it’s all we hear

Screaming out for my attention

Chanting my name
Chantimg my name

Welcome all to curtain call
At the opera
Raging voices in my mind
Rise above the orchestra
Like a crescendo of gratitude

Don’t wake me until it’s over
I, I may be dreaming awake

Chanting my name
Chantimg my name

Welcome all to curtain call
At the opera
Raging voices in my mind
Rise above the orchestra

Welcome all to curtain call
At the opera
Raging voices in my mind
Rise above the orchestra

Moulin Rouge - Elephant Love Medley

Kamelot - Don't you Cry



...για την Αμαλία και όλους τους Αγγέλους

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

little by little
I've come to this point
on my own I've been searching my way
I lost you so early
the days went so fast
you don't know how I prayed every day

a song to remember
a song to forget
you'll never know how I tried
to make you proud
and to honor your name but
you never told me goodbye

now that your are gone
casting shadows from the past
you and all the memories will last

don't you cry
or suffer over me
I will be waiting for you
don't you cry
angels never fade away
I'll be watching over you
see you through

now I'm a man and
I'm feeling you still
could it be you were there all along
a time to surrender
a time to forgive
with solace I give you this song

now that you are gone
casting shadows from the past
in my dreams I hear your voice at last

don't you cry
or suffer over me
I will be waiting for you
don't you cry
angels never fade away
I'll be watching over you
see you through

I can see you tonight
in the pale winter light
father and son again
the bond of blood will never end

Nightwish - Sleeping Sun



hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

The sun is sleeping quietly
Once upon a century
Wistful oceans calm and red
Ardent caresses laid to rest

For my dreams I hold my life
For wishes I behold my night
The truth at the end of time
Losing faith makes a crime

I wish for this night-time
to last for a lifetime
The darkness around me
Shores of a solar sea
Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With you

Sorrow has a human heart
From my god it will depart
I'd sail before a thousand moons
Never finding where to go

Two hundred twenty-two days of light
Will be desired by a night
A moment for the poet's play
Until there's nothing left to say

I wish for this night-time
to last for a lifetime
The darkness around me
Shores of a solar sea
Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With you

I wish for this night-time
to last for a lifetime
The darkness around me
Shores of a solar sea
Oh how I wish to go down with the sun
Sleeping
Weeping
With you

The Whites Stripes "Icky Thump" video


--------------------------------------

Icky thump
Who'da thunk?
Sittin drunk on a wagon to Mexico?

Ahh well
What a chump
Well my head got a bump
When I hit it on the radio

Redhead senorita
Looking dead
Came and said
"Need a bed?"
En Espanol

I said
"Gimme a drink a water,
I'm gonna 'sing around the collar'
And I don't need a microphone."

Icky Thump
With a lump in my throat
Grabbed my coat
And I was freaking
I was ready to go!

And I swear
Besides the hair
She had: one white eye,
One black (nk) stare
Lookin' up
Lyin' there.

On the stand
Near her hand
Was a candy cane
Black rum, sugar cane
Dry ice (and) something strange

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la

White Americans, what?
Nothing better to do?
Why don't you kick yourself out
You're an immigrant too?

Who's using who?
What should we do?
Well, you can't be a pimp
And a prostitue too.

Icky thump
Handcuffed to a bunk
Robbed blind
Looked around
And there was nobody else

Left alone
I hit myself with a stone
Went home and learned how
To clean up after myself.

Οι White Stripes έδωσαν στη δημοσιότητα το video του Icky Thump



Tο video του Icky Thump το οποίο έχει πολιτικό περιεχόμενο έδωσαν στη δημοσιότητα μέσω AOL οι White Stripes. Δυστυχώς ακόμα δέν είναι διαθέσιμο στην Ελλάδα, αλλά ελπίζουμε πολύ σύντομα να γίνει αυτό. Αντ' αυτού σας δίνουμε το link για κατέβασμα από το επίσημο site τους του Ball and Biscuit live στο Detroit με το Bob Dylan (είναι επίκαιρο λόγω γενεθλίων του B.D.)

System of a Down - Soldier Side



Από το Hypnotize (2005)

++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Dead men lying on the bottom of the grave
Wondering when Savior comes
Is he gonna be saved

Maybe you're a sinner into your alternate life
Maybe you're a joker maybe you deserve to die

They were crying when their sons left
God is wearing black
He's gone so far to find no hope
He's never coming back

They were crying when their sons left
All young men must go
He's come so far to find the truth
He's never going home

Young men standing on the top of their own graves
Wondering when Jesus comes
Are they gonna be saved

Cruelty to the winner, Bishop tells the King his lies
Maybe you're a mourner, maybe you deserve to die
They were crying when their sons left
God is wearing black
He's gone so far to find no hope
He's never coming back
They were crying when their sons left
All young men must go
He's come so far to find no truth
He's never going home

Welcome to the Soldier Side
Where there's no one here but me
People all grow up to die
There is no one here but me

Welcome to the Soldier Side
Where there's no one here but me
People on the soldier's side
There is no one here but me

System of a Down - Deer Dance



Πρωτοακούστηκε στο LP των System of a Down, Toxicity [2001]
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Round, Round

Circumventing circuses,
Lamenting in protest,
To visible police,
Presence sponsored fear,

Battalions of riot police,
With rubber bullet kisses,
Baton courtesy,
Service with a smile

Beyond the Staples Center you can see America,
With its tired, poor, avenging disgrace,
Peaceful, loving youth against the brutality,
Of plastic existence.

Pushing little children,
With their fully automatics,
They like to push the weak around,
Pushing little children,
With their fully automatics,
They like to push the weak around.

Round, Round

A rush of words,
Pleading to disperse,
Upon your naked walls, alive,
A political call,
The fall guy accord,
We can't afford to be neutral on a moving train,

Beyond the Staples Center you can see America,
With its tired, poor, avenging disgrace,
Peaceful, loving youth against the brutality,
Of plastic existence.

Pushing little children,
With their fully automatics,
They like to push the weak around,
Pushing little children,
With their fully automatics,
They like to push the weak around.

Push them around,
A deer dance, invitation to peace,
War staring you in the face, dressed in black.
With a helmet, fierce,
Trained and appropriate for the malcontents,
For the disproportioned malcontents,
The little boy smiled, it'll all be well,
The little boy smiled it'll all be well,

Pushing little children,
With their fully automatics,
They like to push the weak around,
Pushing little children,
With their fully automatics,
They like to push the weak around.
Pushing little children,
With their fully automatics,
They like to push the weak around,
Push the weak around,
Push the weak around,
Push the weak around,
They like to push the weak around.

Bob Dylan - Man Gave Names To All The Animals



Υπήρχε στο Slow Train Coming [1979]
/////////////////////////////////
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning.
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago.

He saw an animal that liked to growl,
Big furry paws and he liked to howl,
Great big furry back and furry hair.
"Ah, think I'll call it a bear."

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning.
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago.

He saw an animal up on a hill
Chewing up so much grass until she was filled.
He saw milk comin' out but he didn't know how.
"Ah, think I'll call it a cow."

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning.
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago.

He saw an animal that liked to snort,
Horns on his head and they weren't too short.
It looked like there wasn't nothin' that he couldn't pull.
"Ah, think I'll call it a bull."

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning.
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago.

He saw an animal leavin' a muddy trail,
Real dirty face and a curly tail.
He wasn't too small and he wasn't too big.
"Ah, think I'll call it a pig."

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning.
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago.

Next animal that he did meet
Had wool on his back and hooves on his feet,
Eating grass on a mountainside so steep.
"Ah, think I'll call it a sheep."

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning.
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago.

He saw an animal as smooth as glass
Slithering his way through the grass.
Saw him disappear by a tree near a lake . . .

Bob Dylan - Sara
πρώτη φορά σε LP στο Desire [1976]



BDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBD
I laid on a dune I looked at the sky
When the children were babies and played on the beach
You came up behind me, I saw you go by
You were always so close and still within reach.

Sara, Sara
Whatever made you want to change your mind
Sara, Sara
So easy to look at, so hard to define.

I can still see them playing with their pails in the sand
They run to the water their buckets to fill
I can still see the shells falling out of their hands
As they follow each other back up the hill.

Sara, Sara
Sweet virgin angel, sweet love of my life
Sara, Sara
Radiant jewel, mystical wife.

Sleeping in the woods by a fire in the night
Drinking white rum in a Portugal bar
Them playing leapfrog and hearing about Snow White
You in the marketplace in Savanna-la-Mar.

Sara, Sara
It's all so clear, I could never forget
Sara, Sara
Loving you is the one thing I'll never regret.

I can still hear the sounds of those Methodist bells
I'd taken the cure and had just gotten through
Staying up for day in the Chelsea Hotel
Writing "Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands" for you.

Sara, Sara
Wherever we travel we're never apart
Sara, Sara
Beautiful lady, so dear to my heart.
How did I meet you ? I don't know
A messenger sent me in a tropical storm
You were there in the winter, moonlight on the snow
And on Lily Pond Lane when the weather was warm.

Sara, Sara
Scorpio Sphinx in a calico dress
Sara, Sara
You must forgive me my unworthiness.

Now the beach is deserted except for some kelp
And a piece of an old ship that lies on the shore
You always responded when I needed your help
You gimme a map and a key to your door.

Sara, Sara
Glamorous nymph with an arrow and bow
Sara, Sara
Don't ever leave me, don't ever go.

Bob Dylan - Senor (Tales Of Yankee Power)
πρώτη φορά σε LP στο Street Legal [1978]



BDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBD
Senor, senor, can you tell me where we're headin ?
Lincoln County Road or Armageddon ?
Seems like I been down this way before
Is there any truth in that, senor ?

Senor, senor, do you know where she is hidin' ?
How long are we gonna be riding ?
How long must I keep my eyes glued to the door ?
Will there be any comfort there senor ?

There's a wicked wind still blowing on that upper deck
There's an iron cross still hanging down from around her neck
There's a marcing band still playing in that vacant lot
Where's she held me in her arms one time and said, Forget me not.

Senor, senor, I can see that painted wagon
Smell the tail of the dragon
Can't stand the suspense anymore
Can you tell me who to contact here, senor ?

Well, the last thing I remember before I stripped and kneeled
Was that trainload of fools bogged down in a magnetic field
A gypsy with a broken flag and a flashing ring
He said, Son, this ain't a dream no more it's the real thing.

Senor, senor, you know their hearts is as hard as leather
Well, give me a minute, let me get it together
I just gotta pick myself up off the floor
I'm ready when you are, senor.

Senor, senor, let's overturn these cables
Disconnect these tables
This place don't make sense to me no more
Can you tell me what we're waiting for, senor ?

Bob Dylan - One More Cup Of Coffee
Κι αυτό πρώτη φορά σε LP στο Desire [1976]


BDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBDBD
Your Breath is sweet, your eyes are like
Two jewels in the sky
Your back is straight your hair is smooth
On the pillow where you lie.
But I don't sense affection
No gratitude or love.
Your loyalty is not me but to the stars above

Chourus :
One more cup of coffee for the road.
One more cup of coffee for I go,
To the valley below.

Your daddy he's an outlaw
And a wanderer by trade.
He'll teach you how to pick an choose
And how to throw the blade.
And he oversees his kingdom
So no stranger does intrude.
His voice it trembles as he calls out
For another plate of food

Chorus

Your sister sees the future
Like your momma and yourself.
You've never learned to read or write
There's no books upon your shelf.
And your pleasure know no limits
Your voice is like a meadow larks.
But your heart is like an ocean
Mysterious and dark.

Roger McGuinn - King of the Hill



Από το υπέροχο LP του Roger McGuinn, Back From Rio [1990]
Με τη συνεργασία του Tom Petty.
============================

L.A's asleep
You roll up your window
The night air is cold
The freeway is clear

In a green Gucci bag
Are your prized possessions
The jewels of your mind
To hold back the fear

And when Monday comes around
There's a high lonesome sound
And she follows you down for the kill
And a white blinding light
Makes it all seem so right
And you feel like the king of the hill

The driveway is long
Your princess is lovely
Your servants all wait
For your knock on the door

How many years
Will you crawl through the castle
So satisfied
And still wanting more

And when Monday comes around
There's a high lonesome sound
And she follows you down for the kill
And a white blinding light
Makes it all seem so right
And you feel like the king of the hill

The guests have arrived
With all the right faces
But you miss the ball
In that room down the hall

It's sunrise again
The driveway is empty
The crystal is cracked
There's blood on the wall

And when Monday comes around
There's a high lonesome sound
And she follows you down for the kill
And a white blinding light
Makes it all seem so right
And you feel like the king of the hill

MINA

Mina - Questo Piccolo Grande Amore


---------------------------
Quella sua maglietta fine
tanto stretta al punto che
immaginavo tutto
e quell'aria da bambina
che non gliel'ho detto mai
ma io ci andavo matto
e chiare sere d'estate
il mare, i giochi e le fate
e la paura e la voglia di essere soli
un bacio a labbra salate
un fuoco e quattro risate
e far l'amore giù al faro
Ti amo davvero
ti amo, lo giuro
ti amo, ti amo davvero.
E lei, lei mi guardava con sospetto
poi mi sorrideva
e mi teneva stretto stretto
ed io, io non ho mai capito niente
visto che oramai non me lo levo dalla mente
che lei, lei era
un piccolo grande amore
solo un piccolo grande amore
niente più che questo
niente di più.
Mi manca da morire
quel suo piccolo grande amore
adesso che saprei cosa dire
adesso che saprei cosa fare
adesso che
voglio un piccolo grande amore.
Quella camminata strana
pure in mezzo a chissà che
l'avrei riconosciuta
mi diceva "Sei una frana"
ma io questa cosa qui
mica l'ho mai creduta.
E lunghe corse affannate
incontro a stelle cadute
e mani sempre più ansiose e scarpe bagnate
e le canzoni stonate
urlate al cielo lassù
chi arriva prima a quel muro
non sono sicuro
se ti amo davvero
non sono, non sono sicuro.
E lei tutt'a un tratto non parlava
ma le si leggeva chiaro in faccia che soffriva
ed io, io non lo so
quant'è che ha pianto

solo adesso me ne sto rendendo conto
ed io, io non ho mai capito niente
visto che oramai non me lo levo dalla mente
che lei, lei era
un piccolo grande amore
solo un piccolo grande amore
niente più che questo
niente di più.
Mi manca da morire
quel suo piccolo grande amore
adesso che saprei cosa dire
adesso che saprei cosa fare
adesso che
voglio un piccolo grande amore

Adriano Celentano - Confessa / Il Ragazzo della Via Gluck

Adriano Celentano - Confessa


χχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχ

Su confessa amore mio
io non sono pi il solo, l'unico
hai nascosto nel cuore tuo
una storia irrinunciabile

Io non sono pi il tuo pensiero
non sono pi il tuo amore vero
sono il dolce con fondo amaro
che non mangi pi

Ma perch tu sei un'altra donna
Ma perch tu non sei pi tu
Ma perch non l'hai detto prima
Chi non ama non sar amato mai

Che ne hai fatto del nostro bene?
E' diventato un freddo brivido
Le risate, le nostre cene
scene ormai irrecuperabili

Io non sono pi il tuo pensiero
non sono pi il tuo amore vero
sono il dolce con fondo amaro
che non mangi pi

Ma perch tu sei un'altra donna
Ma perch tu non sei pi tu
Ma perch tu, tu non l'hai detto prima
Chi non ama non sar amato mai

Quando viene la sera
e il ricordo pian piano scompare
la tristezza nel cuore
apre un vuoto pi grande del mare
pi grande del mare

Ma perch non l'hai detto prima
Chi non ama non sar amato mai

Che ne hai fatto del nostro bene?
E' diventato un freddo brivido
Le risate, le nostre cene
scene ormai irrecuperabili

Io non sono pi il tuo pensiero
non sono pi il tuo amore vero
sono il dolce con fondo amaro
che non mangi pi

(Strumentale)

(Ma perch non l'hai detto prima
Chi non ama non sar amato mai)

Adriano Celentano - Il Ragazzo della Via Gluck



χχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχχ
Questa la storia di uno di noi
Anche lui nato per caso in via Gluck
In una casa fuori citt
Gente tranquilla che lavorava
La dove c'era l'erba ora c' una citt
E quella casa in mezzo al verde ormai
Dove sara

Questo ragazzo della via Gluck
Si divertiva a giocare con me
Ma un giorno disse vado in citt
E lo diceva mentre piangeva
Io gli domando amico non sei contento
Vai finalmente a stare in citt
La troverai le cose che non hai avuto qui
Potrai lavarti in casa senza andar gi nel cortile

Mio caro amico se qui sono nato
E in questa strada ora lascio il mio cuore
Ma come fai a non capire
E' una fortuna per voi che restate
A piedi nudi a giocare nei prati
Mentre la in centro io respiro il cemento
Ma verr il giorno che ritorner ancora qui
E sentir l'amico treno che fischia cos

Passano gli anni ma otto son lunghi
Per quel ragazzo ne ha fatta di strada
Ma non si scorda la sua prima casa
Ora coi soldi lui pu comperarla
Torna e non trova gli amici che aveva
Solo case su case catrame e cemento
La dove c'era l'erba ora c' una citt
E quella casa in mezzo al verde ormai
Dove sar?

Non so, non so, perch continuano a costruire le case
E non lasciano l'erba, non lasciano l'erba,
Non lasciano l'erba, non lasciano l'erba
E no se andiamo avanti cos
Chiss come si far, chiss, chiss come si far

Joe Dassin - Et si tu n' existais pas


ΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞ
Et si tu n'existais pas,
Dis-moi pourquoi j'existerais ?
Pour traîner dans un monde sans toi,
Sans espoir et sans regrets.

Et si tu n'existais pas,
J'essaierais d'inventer l'amour,
Comme un peintre qui voit sous ses doigts
Naître les couleurs du jour.
Et qui n'en revient pas.

Et si tu n'existais pas,
Dis-moi pour qui j'existerais ?
Des passantes endormies dans mes bras
Que je n'aimerais jamais.

Et si tu n'existais pas,
Je ne serais qu'un point de plus
Dans ce monde qui vient et qui va,
Je me sentirais perdu,
J'aurais besoin de toi.

Et si tu n'existais pas,
Dis-moi comment j'existerais ?
Je pourrais faire semblant d'être moi,
Mais je ne serais pas vrai.

Et si tu n'existais pas,
Je crois que je l'aurais trouvé,
Le secret de la vie, le pourquoi,
Simplement pour te créer
Et pour te regarder.

Dalida - Je reviens te chercher



******************
Je reviens te chercher
Je savais que tu m'attendais
Je savais que l'on ne pourrait
Se passer l'un de l'autre longtemps

Je reviens te chercher
Je n'ai pas tellement changé
Et je vois que de ton côté
Tu as bien traversé le temps

Tous les deux on s'est fait la guerre
Tous les deux on s'est pillé, ruiné, volé
Qui a gagné, qui a perdu,
On n'en sait rien on ne sait plus
On se retrouve les mains nues
Mais après la guerre il nous reste à faire la paix

Je reviens te chercher
Tremblante comme une jeune mariée
Mais plus riche qu'au jour passé
De tendresse et de larmes et de temps

Je reviens te chercher
J'ai l'air bête sur ce pallier
Aide moi et viens m'embrasser
Un taxi est en bas qui attend

{Instrumental}

Dalida + Alain Delon - Paroles, paroles...


Ο Ωραίος κι η Ωραία!...
VVVVVVVVVVVVVVVV
A.Delon:
C'est étrange,
je n'sais pas ce qui m'arrive ce soir,
Je te regarde comme pour la première fois.
Dalida:
Encore des mots toujours des mots
les mêmes mots
Je n'sais plus comment te dire,
Rien que des mots
Mais tu es cette belle histoire d'amour...
que je ne cesserai jamais de lire.
Des mots faciles des mots fragiles
C'était trop beau
Tu es d'hier et de demain
Bien trop beau
De toujours ma seule vérité.
Mais c'est fini le temps des rêves
Les souvenirs se fanent aussi
quand on les oublie
Tu es comme le vent qui fait chanter les violons
et emporte au loin le parfum des roses.
Caramels, bonbons et chocolats
Par moments, je ne te comprends pas.
Merci, pas pour moi
Mais tu peux bien les offrir à une autre
qui aime le vent et le parfum des roses
Moi, les mots tendres enrobés de douceur
se posent sur ma bouche mais jamais sur mon cœur
Une parole encore.
Parole, parole, parole
Ecoute-moi.
Parole, parole, parole
Je t'en prie.
Parole, parole, parole
Je te jure.
Parole, parole, parole, parole, parole
encore des paroles que tu sèmes au vent
Voilà mon destin te parler....
te parler comme la première fois.
Encore des mots toujours des mots
les mêmes mots

Comme j'aimerais que tu me comprennes.
Rien que des mots
Que tu m'écoutes au moins une fois.
Des mots magiques des mots tactiques
qui sonnent faux
Tu es mon rêve défendu.
Oui, tellement faux
Mon seul tourment et mon unique espérance.
Rien ne t'arrête quand tu commences
Si tu savais comme j'ai envie
d'un peu de silence
Tu es pour moi la seule musique...
qui fit danser les étoiles sur les dunes
Caramels, bonbons et chocolats
Si tu n'existais pas déjà je t'inventerais.
Merci, pas pour moi
Mais tu peux bien les offrir à une autre
qui aime les étoiles sur les dunes
Moi, les mots tendres enrobés de douceur
se posent sur ma bouche mais jamais sur mon cœur
Encore un mot juste une parole
Parole, parole, parole
Ecoute-moi.
Parole, parole, parole
Je t'en prie.
Parole, parole, parole
Je te jure.
Parole, parole, parole, parole, parole
encore des paroles que tu sèmes au vent
Que tu es belle !
Parole, parole, parole
Que tu est belle !
Parole, parole, parole
Que tu es belle !
Parole, parole, parole
Que tu es belle !
Parole, parole, parole, parole, parole
encore des paroles que tu sèmes au vent

Blondie - Heart of Glass/ One Way or Another (live)/ Maria

Blondie - Heart of Glass



HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Once I had a love and it was a gas, soon turned out had a heart of glass.
Seemed like the real thing, only to find mucho mistrust.
Love's gone behind.

Once I had a love and it was divine.
Soon found out I was losing my mind.
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind.
Mucho mistrust.
Love's gone behind.

In between "what I find is pleasing" and "I'm feeling fine", love is so confusing.
It's no peace of mind if I fear I'm losing you.
It's just no good, you teasing like you do.

Once I had a love and it was a gas, soon turned out had a heart of glass.
Seemed like the real thing, only to find mucho mistrust.
Love's gone behind.

Lost inside adorable illusion and I cannot hide.
I'm the one you're using please don't push me aside.
We could make it cruising, yeah.

Yeah, riding high on love's true bluish light
Ooh ooh ooh whoa x4

Once I had a love and it was a gas, soon turned out had a heart of glass.
Seemed like the real thing, only to find mucho mistrust.
Love's gone behind.


In between "what I find is pleasing" and "I'm feeling fine", love is so confusing.
It's no peace of mind if I fear I'm losing you.
It's just no good, you teasing like you do.

Blondie -Maria



HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

She moves like she don't care
Smooth as silk cool as air
Ooh it makes you wanna cry
She doesn't know your name
And your heart beats like a subway train
Ooh it makes you wanna die

Ooh Don't ya wanna take her
Ooh Don't ya wanna make her all your own

(Chorus)
Maria
You've got to see her
Go insane and out of your mind
Regina
Ave Maria
A million and one
Candle lights

I've seen this thing before
In my best friend
And the boy next door
Fool for love
Fool on fire
Won't come in from the rain
Sees oceans running down the drain
Blue as ice and desire

Ooh Don't you wanna make her
Ooh Don't you wanna take her home

(Repeat Chorus)

She walks like she don't care wanna take her everywhere
Ooh Makes you wanna cry
She's like a millionaire
Walking on imported air
Ooh it makes you wanna die

You were the only one
That I allowed inside my heart
Now I'm just holding on
To something so far gone

Fairouz - Khedni



Το πραγματικό όνομα της Fairouz που σημαίνει καλαΐς (τυρκουάζ -γαλαζοπράσινο πετράδι) ήταν Nouhad Haddad. Γεννήθηκε στο Λίβανο στις 21 Νοεμβρίου του 1935. Η φωνή της και η γενικότερη παρουσία της έχει σημαδέψει την Αραβική μουσική. Φυσικά θα επανέλθουμε σε αυτήν. Αρκετά στοιχεία για τη Fairuz υπάρχουν εδώ.

Asala Nasri (Asalah) - Mab'ash Ana



Μια από τις "μαθήτριες" της Fairuz, η Σύρια Asala Nasri σε ένα από τα πιο όμορφα τραγούδια της. Το Mab'ash Ana [δε θα είμαι εγώ] προέρχεται από το Moshtaqah [2001] ένα από τα καλύτερα LP της.

Fairuz - Zaali Tawwal

Sonny & Cher - I Got You Babe (1965)



**************************

HER: They say we're young and we don't know
We won't find out until we grow
HIM: Well I don't know if all that's true
'Cause you got me, and baby I got you

HIM: Babe
BOTH: I got you babe
I got you babe

HER: They say our love won't pay the rent
Before it's earned, our money's all been spent
HIM: I guess that's so, we don't have a pot
But at least I'm sure of all the things we got

HIM: Babe
BOTH: I got you babe
I got you babe

HIM: I got flowers in the spring
I got you to wear my ring
HER: And when I'm sad, you're a clown
And if I get scared, you're always around

HER: Don't let them say your hair's too long
'Cause I don't care, with you I can't go wrong
HIM: Then put your little hand in mine
There ain't no hill or mountain we can't climb

HIM: Babe
BOTH: I got you babe
I got you babe

HIM: I got you to hold my hand
HER: I got you to understand
HIM: I got you to walk with me
HER: I got you to talk with me
I got you to kiss goodnight
I got you to hold me tight
I got you, I won't let go
I got you to love me so

BOTH: I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe

David Bowie & Cher - Medley [23/11/1975]

Cher - Gypsys Tramps And Thieves



Ένα παλιό video της Cher της οποίας τα 61α γενέθλια μας θύμισε το lostinmusic~vain
**************************
I was born in the wagon of a travellin' show
My mama used to dance for the money they'd throw
Papa would do whatever he could
Preach a little gospel, sell a couple bottles of Doctor Good

Chorus
Gypsys, tramps, and thieves
We'd hear it from the people of the town
They'd call us Gypsys, tramps, and thieves
But every night all the men would come around
And lay their money down

Picked up a boy just south of Mobile
Gave him a ride, filled him with a hot meal
I was sixteen, he was twenty-one
Rode with us to Memphis
And papa woulda shot him if he knew what he'd done

Chorus

I never had schoolin' but he taught me well
With his smooth southern style
Three months later I'm a gal in trouble
And I haven't seen him for a while, uh-huh
I haven't seen him for a while, uh-huh

She was born in the wagon of a travellin' show
Her mama had to dance for the money they'd throw
Grandpa'd do whatever he could
Preach a little gospel, sell a couple bottles of Doctor Good

Chorus

Chorus chorus fades

La seule solution
C'etait mourir
Mais plus d'un les a suivis
En enfer

Thom Yorke (Radiohead) & PJ Harvey - This Mess We're In



Άλλο ένα καταπληκτικό ντουέτο για την PJ Harvey.
(Το video δεν είναι και τόσο άσχετο)
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
( Thom Yorke )
Can you hear them
The helicopters
I'm in New York
No need for words now
We sit in silence
You look me
In the eye directly
You met me
I think it's Wednesday
The evening
The mess we're in
And ooooh...

( PJ Harvey )
The city sunset over me
The city sunset over me

( Thom Yorke )
Night and day
I dream of
Making love
To you now baby
Love making
On screen
Impossible dream
And I have seen
The sunrise over the river
The freeway
Reminding of
This mess we're in
And ooooh...

( PJ Harvey )
The city sunset over me
The city sunset over me

( PJ Harvey )
The city sunset over me
The city sunset over me

( PJ talking / Thom singing...together )
What were you wanting / What was that you wanted
I just wanna say
Don't ever change now baby
I'd thank you
I don't think we will meet again
And you must leave now
Before the sun rises
Over the skyscrapers
And the city landscape comes into view
Sweat on my skin
Oh
This mess we're in
Ooooh...

( PJ Harvey )
The city sunset over me
The city sunset over me
The city sunset over me
The city sunset over me

Talking Heads - Life During Wartime



Ήταν single από το Fear Of Music [1979]. Live υπήρχε στο Stop Making Sense [1984]
wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
Heard of a van that is loaded with weapons,
packed up and ready to go
Heard of some gravesites, out by the highway,
a place where nobody knows
The sound of gunfire, off in the distance,
I'm getting used to it now
Lived in a brownstore, lived in the ghetto,
I've lived all over this town

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco,
this ain't no fooling around
No time for dancing, or lovey dovey,
I ain't got time for that now

Transmit the message, to the receiver,
hope for an answer some day
I got three passports, a couple of visas,
you don't even know my real name
High on a hillside, the trucks are loading,
everything's ready to roll
I sleep in the daytime, I work in the nightime,
I might not ever get home

This ain't no party, this ain't no disco,
this ain't no fooling around
This ain't no mudd club, or C. B. G. B.,
I ain't got time for that now
Heard about Houston? Heard about Detroit?
Heard about Pittsburgh, P. A.?
You oughta know not to stand by the window
somebody might see you up there
I got some groceries, some peant butter,
to last a couple of days
But I ain't got no speakers, ain't got no
headphones, ain't got no records to play

Why stay in college? Why go to night school?
Gonna be different this time
Can't write a letter, can't send a postcard,
I can't write nothing at all
This ain't no party, this ain't no disco,
this ain't no fooling around
I'd like to kiss you, I'd love you hold you
I ain't got no time for that now

Trouble in transit, got through the roadblock,
we blended with the crowd
We got computer, we're tapping pohne lines,
I know that ain't allowed
We dress like students, we dress like housewives,
or in a suit and a tie
I changed my hairstyle, so many times now,
I don't know what I look like!
You make me shiver, I feel so tender,
we make a pretty good team
Don't get exhausted, I'll do some driving,
you ought to get some sleep
Get you instructions, follow directions,
then you should change your address
Maybe tomorrow, maybe the next day,
whatever you think is best
Burned all my notebooks, what good are
notebooks? They won't help me survive
My chest is aching, burns like a furnace,
the burning keeps me alive
Try to stay healthy, physical fitness,
don't want to catch no disease
Try to be careful, don't take no chances,
you better watch what you say

Blackmore's Night - I Still Remember



Από το 3ο LP των Blackmore's Night , Fires at Midnight [2001]
-άσχετες οι εικόνες του video-

jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj


I thought of you the other day
How worlds of change led us astray
Colors seem to fade to gray
In the wake of yesterday…
You looked into my eyes
You had me hypnotized
And I can still remember you

I had a dream of you and I
A thousand stars lit up the sky
I touched your hand and you were gone
But memories of you live on…

You looked into my eyes
You had me hypnotized
And I can still remember you
Those moments spent together
Promising forever
And I can still remember you

Do you ever think of me
And get lost in the memory
When you do, I hope you smile
And hold that memory a while…

Deep Purple - You Keep On Moving



Ένα από τα καλύτερα αλλά όχι τοσο γνωστά κομμάτια των Deep Purple. Από το Come Taste the Band(1975) -εδώ live στην Ιαπωνία- με τον Tommy Bolin στην κιθάρα και το συνδυασμό David Coverdale και Glenn Hughes στα φωνητικά.
rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

You keep on moving
Far away, far away
You keep on moving
Far away, far away
Everyday, wheels are turning
And the cry... still returning

Dawn will soon be breaking,
The day has just begun.
You put your arms around me
Like a circle 'round the sun.
Dance across the seasons
To a place that no one knows
Where angels fear to tread...

Deep Purple - Perfect Strangers



Από το ομώνυμο LP του 1984 . Το Perfect Strangers σηματοδοτούσε την επανένωση των
Deep Purple με την πιο πετυχημένη τους σύνθεση.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Can you remember remember my name
As I flow through your life
A thousand oceans I have flown
And cold spirits of ice
All my life
I am the echo of your past

I am returning the echo of a point in time
Distant faces shine
A thousand warriors I have known
And laughing as the spirits appear
All your life
Shadows of another day

And if you hear me talking on the wind
Youve got to understand
We must remain
Perfect strangers

I know I must remain inside this silent well of sorrow

A strand of silver hanging through the sky
Touching more than you see
The voice of ages in your mind
Is aching with the dead of the night
Precious life (your tears are lost in
Falling rain)

And if you hear me talking on the wind
Youve got to understand
We must remain
Perfect strangers

The Tea Party - Walking Wounded


Πιθανότατα το προηγούμενο κομμάτι έδωσε το όνομά τους στους The Tea Party. Το Walking Wounded βρίσκεται στο Tangents [2000]
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Is it safe to look within
And erase all that's been
And all that's been between
Is it gone, tell me what went wrong
'cause baby i'm not that strong

And I'm walking wounded
All Alone
All Alone

Are you comfortable and numb
Do they all succumb
to all those lies
Does it satisfy the greed
Is it all you need
Is it all you want
well baby i'm not that strong

And I'm walking wounded
All Alone
and baby i'm not that strong
And I'm walking wounded
All Alone
All Alone

How does it feel?
How does it feel?
baby, now
How does it feel?
How does it feel?

If your memories do stray
Then they'll betray all that's past
And all that's been between
Is it gone, tell me what went wrong
'cause baby I'm not that strong

And I'm walking wounded
All Alone
and baby i'm not that strong
And I'm walking wounded
All Alone
All Alone

How does it feel?
How does it feel?
baby, now
How does it feel?
How does it feel?

How does it feel?
How does it feel?

How does it feel?
How does it feel?
baby, now

Led Zeppelin - Tea For One



Από το album των Led Zeppelin : Presence (1976)
********************************
How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes seem to slip into days?
Oh twenty-four hours, Baby sometimes seem to slip into days
A minute seems like a lifetime, baby when I feel this way
Sittin, lookin at the clock, time moves so slow
I've been watchin for the hands to move
Until I just can't look no more
How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes seems to slip into days?
A minute seems like a lifetime, Baby when I feel this way.

To sing a song for you, I recall you used to say
"Oh baby this one's for we two", Which in the end is you anyway

How come twenty four hours, Baby sometimes slip into days?
A minute seems like a lifetime, baby when I feel this way.

There was a time that I stood tall, In the eyes of other men
But by my own choice I left you woman, And now I can't get back again

How come twenty-four hours, sometimes slip into days?
A minute seems like a lifetime, Baby when I feel this way
A minute seems like a lifetime
When I feel this way...I feel this way

Eric Burdon - Woman of the Rings



Από το LP του Eric Burdon : Surnivor.

#########################

Alvina, spirit woman of the rings,
spirit woman from Kansas with a soul that sings.
Tell me baby baby, where you've been so long,
seen nothin' but trouble since you been gone.
Alvina with your master's eye around your neck,
looked everywhere baby, but I ain't seen you yet.
Heard you were in Africa, then again Spain
Heard you went to Texas and you brought the rain.

I remember you, down on the boulevard,
head held high, proud of your gypsie heart,
St. Cyr took you under her wings,
you grew up into a woman of the rings.

I still wear your bracelet upon my wrist,
I still carry the memory of your kiss,
can I see you one more time just to give it back?
For to give and to take is to surely be on the right track,
Alvina I'll give all my lovin' to you,
protect you 'till our lives are both over and through
I believed I talked to you last night in my dreams,
I felt you lay beside me, Lawd you were my gypsie queen.

I remember you, down on the boulevard,
head held high, proud of your gypsie heart,
St. Cyr took you under her wings,
you grew up into a woman of the rings.

Nick Cave & Kylie Minogue - Where The Wild Roses Grow



Απαραίτητο συμπλήρωμα του Henry Lee
ggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggg
They call me The Wild Rose
But my name is Elisa Day
Why they call me it I do not know
For my name is Elisa Day

From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one
As she stared in my eyes and smiled
For her lips were the colour of the roses
That grew down the river, all bloody and wild

When he knocked on my door and entered the room
My trembling subsided in his sure embrace
He would be my first man, and with a careful hand
He wiped at the tears that ran down my face

[CHORUS]

On the second day I brought her a flower
She was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen
I said, "Do you know where the wild roses grow
So sweet and scarlet and free?"

On the second day he came with a single red rose
Said: "Will you give me your loss and your sorrow?"
I nodded my head, as I lay on the bed
He said, "if I show you the roses will you follow?"

[CHORUS]

On the third day he took me to the river
He showed me the roses and we kissed
And the last thing I heard was a muttered word
As he stood smiling above me with a rock in his fist

On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow
And she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief
As I kissed her goodbye, I said, "All beauty must die"
And lent down and planted a rose between her teeth

[CHORUS]

Nick Cave & P.J Harvey - Henry Lee



Από το Murder Ballads [1996]
ΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞΞ
Get down, get down, little Henry Lee
And stay all night with me
You won't find a girl in this damn world
That will compare with me
And the wind did howl and the wind did blow
La la la la la
La la la la lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee
I can't get down and I won't get down
And stay all night with thee
For the girl I have in that merry green land
I love far better than thee
And the wind did howl and the wind did blow
La la la la la
La la la la lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee
She leaned herself against a fence
Just for a kiss or two
And with a little pen-knife held in her hand
She plugged him through and through
And the wind did roar and the wind did moan
La la la la la
La la la la lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee
Come take him by his lilly-white hands
Come take him by his feet
And throw him in this deep deep well
Which is more than one hundred feet
And the wind did howl and the wind did blow
La la la la la
La la la la lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee
Lie there, lie there, little Henry Lee
Till the flesh drops from your bones
For the girl you have in that merry green land
Can wait forever for you to come home
And the wind did howl and the wind did moan
La la la la la
La la la la lee
A little bird lit down on Henry Lee

Radiohead - Street Spirit (fade out)



Το Street Spirit Street Spirit (fade out) ,πέρα από το ότι είναι υπέροχο κομμάτι, συνδυάζεται με ένα πάρα πολύ καλό video clip. Για κατέβασμα σε άριστη ποιότητα υπάρχει στο Google Video .

MIMIMIMIMIMIMIMIMIMIMIMIMIMIMIMIMI
Rows of houses, all bearing down on me
I can feel their blue hands touching me
All these things into position
All these things we'll one day swallow whole
Fade out again, Fade out.

This machine will, will not communicate
These thoughts and the strain I am under
Be a world child, form a circle
Before we all, go under
fade out again, fade out again

Cracked eggs, dead birds
Scream as they fight for life
I can feel death, can see its beady eyes
All these things into position
All these things we'll one day swallow whole
Fade out again, Fade out again

Immerse your soul in love
Immerse your soul in love

Rainbow - Weiss Heim



Το Weiss Heim υπάρχει στο ένατο album των Rainbow : " Final Vinyl" [1986] με live, b-sides και ακυκλοφόρητα κομμάτια.

Roger Waters - Leaving Beirut


Κυκλοφόρησε από το Roger Waters το Σεπτέμβριο του 2004 μόνο στο internet, μαζί με το κομμάτι To Kill A Child. Είχαν και τα 2 θέμα την εισβολή στο Ιράκ.
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
So we left Beirut Willa and I
He headed East to Baghdad and the rest of it
I set out North
I walked the five or six miles to the last of the street lamps
And hunkered in the curb side dusk
Holding out my thumb
In no great hope at the ramshackle procession of home bound traffic
Success!
An ancient Mercedes 'dolmus '
The ubiquitous, Arab, shared taxi drew up
I turned out my pockets and shrugged at the driver
" J'ai pas de l'argent "
" Venez! " A soft voice from the back seat
The driver lent wearily across and pushed open the back door
I stooped to look inside at the two men there
One besuited, bespectacled, moustached, irritated, distant, late
The other, the one who had spoken,
Frail, fifty five-ish, bald, sallow, in a short sleeved pale blue cotton shirt
With one biro in the breast pocket
A clerk maybe, slightly sunken in the seat
"Venez!" He said again, and smiled
"Mais j'ai pas de l'argent"
"Oui, Oui, d'accord, Venez!"

Are these the people that we should bomb
Are we so sure they mean us harm
Is this our pleasure, punishment or crime
Is this a mountain that we really want to climb
The road is hard, hard and long
Put down that two by four
This man would never turn you from his door
Oh George! Oh George!
That Texas education must have fucked you up when you were very small

He beckoned with a small arthritic motion of his hand
Fingers together like a child waving goodbye
The driver put my old Hofner guitar in the boot with my rucksack
And off we went
" Vous etes Francais, monsieur? "
" Non, Anglais "
" Ah! Anglais "
" Est-ce que vous parlais Anglais, Monsieur? "
"Non, je regrette"
And so on
In small talk between strangers, his French alien but correct
Mine halting but eager to please
A lift, after all, is a lift
Late moustache left us brusquely
And some miles later the dolmus slowed at a crossroads lit by a single lightbulb
Swung through a U-turn and stopped in a cloud of dust
I opened the door and got out
But my benefactor made no move to follow
The driver dumped my guitar and rucksack at my feet
And waving away my thanks returned to the boot
Only to reappear with a pair of alloy crutches
Which he leaned against the rear wing of the Mercedes.
He reached into the car and lifted my companion out
Only one leg, the second trouser leg neatly pinned beneath a vacant hip
" Monsieur, si vous voulez, ca sera un honneur pour nous
Si vous venez avec moi a la maison pour manger avec ma femme "

When I was 17 my mother, bless her heart, fulfilled my summer dream
She handed me the keys to the car
We motored down to Paris, fuelled with Dexedrine and booze
Got bust in Antibes by the cops
And fleeced in Naples by the wops
But everyone was kind to us, we were the English dudes
Our dads had helped them win the war
When we all knew what we were fighting for
But now an Englishman abroad is just a US stooge
The bulldog is a poodle snapping round the scoundrel's last refuge

"Ma femme", thank God! Monopod but not queer
The taxi drove off leaving us in the dim light of the swinging bulb
No building in sight
What the hell
"Merci monsieur"
"Bon, Venez!"
His faced creased in pleasure, he set off in front of me
Swinging his leg between the crutches with agonising care
Up the dusty side road into the darkness
After half an hour we'd gone maybe half a mile
When on the right I made out the low profile of a building
He called out in Arabic to announce our arrival
And after some scuffling inside a lamp was lit
And the changing angle of light in the wide crack under the door
Signalled the approach of someone within
The door creaked open and there, holding a biblical looking oil lamp
Stood a squat, moustached woman, stooped smiling up at us
She stood aside to let us in and as she turned
I saw the reason for her stoop
She carried on her back a shocking hump
I nodded and smiled back at her in greeting, fighting for control
The gentleness between the one-legged man and his monstrous wife
Almost too much for me

Is gentleness too much for us
Should gentleness be filed along with empathy
We feel for someone else's child
Every time a smart bomb does its sums and gets it wrong
Someone else's child dies and equities in defence rise
America, America, please hear us when we call
You got hip-hop, be-bop, hustle and bustle
You got Atticus Finch
You got Jane Russell
You got freedom of speech
You got great beaches, wildernesses and malls
Don't let the might, the Christian right, fuck it all up
For you and the rest of the world

They talked excitedly
She went to take his crutches in routine of care
He chiding, gestured
We have a guest
She embarrassed by her faux pas
Took my things and laid them gently in the corner
"Du the?"
We sat on meagre cushions in one corner of the single room
The floor was earth packed hard and by one wall a raised platform
Some six foot by four covered by a simple sheet, the bed
The hunchback busied herself with small copper pots over an open hearth
And brought us tea, hot and sweet
And so to dinner
Flat, unleavened bread, + thin
Cooked in an iron skillet over the open hearth
Then folded and dipped into the soft insides of female sea urchins
My hostess did not eat, I ate her dinner
She would hear of nothing else, I was their guest
And then she retired behind a curtain
And left the men to sit drinking thimbles full of Arak
Carefully poured from a small bottle with a faded label
Soon she reappeared, radiant
Carrying in her arms their pride and joy, their child.
I'd never seen a squint like that
So severe that as one eye looked out the other disappeared behind its nose

Not in my name, Tony, you great war leader you
Terror is still terror, whosoever gets to frame the rules
History's not written by the vanquished or the damned
Now we are Genghis Khan, Lucretia Borghia, Son of Sam
In 1961 they took this child into their home
I wonder what became of them
In the cauldron that was Lebanon
If I could find them now, could I make amends?
How does the story end?

And so to bed, me that is, not them
Of course they slept on the floor behind a curtain
Whilst I lay awake all night on their earthen bed
Then came the dawn and then their quiet stirrings
Careful not to wake the guest
I yawned in great pretence
And took the proffered bowl of water heated up and washed
And sipped my coffee in its tiny cup
And then with much "merci-ing" and bowing and shaking of hands
We left the woman to her chores
And we men made our way back to the crossroads
The painful slowness of our progress accentuated by the brilliant morning light
The dolmus duly reappeared
My host gave me one crutch and leaning on the other
Shook my hand and smiled
"Merci, monsieur," I said
" De rien "
" And merci a votre femme, elle est tres gentille "
Giving up his other crutch
He allowed himself to be folded into the back seat again
"Bon voyage, monsieur," he said
And half bowed as the taxi headed south towards the city
I turned North, my guitar over my shoulder
And the first hot gust of wind
Quickly dried the salt tears from my young cheeks.
