The Doors - Spanish Caravan



Το Spanish Caravan υπήρχε στο Waiting For The Sun [1968] που ήταν το 3ο LP των The Doors

::::::::THE DOORS::::::::::::

Carry me caravan take me away
Take me to portugal, take me to spain
Andalusia with fields full of grain
I have to see you again and again
Take me, spanish caravan
Yes, I know you can
Trade winds find galleons lost in the sea
I know where treasure is waiting for me
Silver and gold in the mountains of spain
I have to see you again and again
Take me, spanish caravan
Yes, I know you can

Robert Plant - Darkness, Darkness / 29 Palms / Ship Of Fools

Ένα μικρό δείγμα από το Robert Plant που εμφανίζεται σήμερα στο Rockwave
#############
Robert Plant - Darkness, Darkness



-------------------
Darkness, Darkness be my pillow,
Take my hand and let me sleep,
In the coolness of your shadow,
In the silence of your deep.

Darkness, Darkness hide my yearning,
For the things I can not see,
Keep my mind from constant turning,
To the things I can not be.
Darkness, Darkness be my blanket,
Cover me with this endless night,
Take away oh this pain of knowing,
Fill this emptiness with light,
Emptiness with light now.

Darkness, Darkness long and lonesome,

As the day that brings me here,
I have found the edge of sadness,
I have the known the depths of fear,
Darkness, Darkness be my blanket,
Cover me with the endless night,
Take away oh this pain of knowing,
Fill this emptiness with light now,
Emptiness with light now.

Darkness, Darkness be my blanket,
Cover me with the endless night,
Take away oh, this pain of knowing,
Fill this emptiness with light now,
Ohh, with light now.

Darkness, Darkness be my pillow,
Take my hand,
And let me sleep,
In the coolness of your shadow,
In the silence of your deep,
In the silence of your deep,
In the oh oh hey yeah oh,
In the summer babe,
Oh yeah oh in the summer baby,
In the summer baby,
oh ooo yeah,
Come on come on come on baby,
Come on come on come on baby,
Come on come on come on baby.

Robert Plant - 29 Palms


-------------------
A fool in love A crazy situation
Her velvet glove Knocks me down and down and down and down.
Her kiss of fire A loaded invitation
Inside her smile She takes me down and down and down and down.
Her moves look good A touch of desparation
From where I stood She turned my head around and round and round.
It comes kinda hard When I hear your voice on the radio
Taking me back down the road that leads back to you.
Oh-oh 29 Palms I feel the heat of your desert heart
Taking me back down the road that leads back to you.
Oh, I'm burning in love! A strange infatuation
Why cold cold touch, mmm What must I do, do, do, do
The heat and the dust Increase my desolation
In God we trust Always for you, and you, and you, and you.
It comes kinda hard When I hear your voice on the radio
Leading me back down the road that leads back to you.
Oh-oh-oh 29 Palms I feel the heat of your desert heart
Leading me back down the road that leads back to you.
Baby, now It comes kinda hard
When I hear your voice on the radio
Leading me back down the raod that leads back to you.
Oh, don't ya hear me baby, now
29 Palms I feel the heat of your desert heart
Leading me back down the road that leads back to you you you,
Yeah-yeah-yeah I'm coming home, oh oh
Gonna get there, gonna get there, don't ya know babe
It comes kinds hard I said when I hear your voice on the radio
Leading me back down the raod that leads back to ooh ooh ooh ooh 29 Palms

Robert Plant - Ship Of Fools

-------------------
On waves of love my heart is breaking
And stranger still my self control
I can't rely on anymore
New tides surprise my world it's changing
Within this frame an ocean swells
Behind this smile I know it well
Beneath a lover's moon I'm waiting
I am the pilot of the storm Adrift in pleasure I may drown
I built this ship it is my making
And furthermore my self control I can't rely on anymore
I know why I know why
Crazy on a ship of fools Crazy on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around back to my loving ground Oh no, oh no
Who claims that no man is an island
While I land up in jeopardy
More distant from you by degrees
I walk this shore in isolation
And at my feet eternity tries ever sweeter plans for me
I know why I know why
Crazy on a ship of fools
Oh, crazy on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around back to my loving ground
Oh no, oh no Ship of fools
Turn this boat around back to my loving ground Oh no,
oh Crazy on a ship of fools Oh, crazy on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around back to my loving ground Oh no, oh no Ship of fools


Carlos Puebla - Cuba no está sola



O Φιντέλ Κάστρο ίσως έχει πλησιάσει το Θεό τα τελευταία χρόνια, όπως φαίνεται στη φωτογραφία που συνοδεύει εδώ το τραγούδι του Carlos Puebla και δεν είναι τόσο απαραίτητες οι ευχές του αμερικανού προέδρου, ούτε η σχετική βοήθεια.*

Η ελληνική απόδοση του Hurshat Ha Eucalyptus
-------------

Σε είδα να χλομιάζεις
Να χάνεσαι σκυφτός
Στην πρώτη αστραπή το μέλλον είδα

Στης μοίρας τον καθρέφτη
Να πέφτει μαύρο φως
Να καίγεται η στιγμή και η σελίδα

Κι εσύ σε μια ρωγμή
Σαν τρωκτικό να τριγυρνάς
Να λες πως μ' αγαπάς, πως με πονάς
Γιατί σιωπάς

Στα δύσκολα σε θέλω
Ν' ανοίξεις αγκαλιά
Εκεί μετράνε λόγια και αγάπες

Στα δύσκολα σε θέλω
Να λες τα τρυφερά
Δεν θέλω πλατινένιες αυταπάτες

Στην κόψη του χρόνου
Η αλήθεια μας γυμνή
Να καίει χτεσινές φωτογραφίες

Το ρήγμα με τρομάζει
Αλλάζει η σκηνή
Καινούργια φονικά και απουσίες

Κι εσύ σε μια ρωγμή
Σαν τρωκτικό να τριγυρνάς
Να λες πως μ' αγαπάς, πως με πονάς
Γιατί σιωπάς

The Beatles - When I'm Sixty-Four / Paul McCartney & Wings Band on The Run / Paul McCartney - No more lonely nights

Πέτρου και Παύλου σήμερα ο Paul McCartney όμως γιόρτασε πρόσφατα [18 Ιουνίου] και τα 65α γενέθλιά του.

=======================>

The Beatles - When I'm Sixty-Four



Από το Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band των "The Beatles" [1967]

IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

When I get older losing my hair,
Many years from now.
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Birthday greetings bottle of wine.
If I'd been out till quarter to three
Would you lock the door,
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four.
You'll be older too,
And if you say the word,
I could stay with you.
I could be handy, mending a fuse
When your lights have gone.
You can knit a sweater by the fireside
Sunday mornings go for a ride,
Doing the garden, digging the weeds,
Who could ask for more.
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four.
Every summer we can rent a cottage,
In the Isle of Wight, if it's not too dear
We shall scrimp and save
Grandchildren on your knee
Vera Chuck & Dave
Send me a postcard, drop me a line,
Stating point of view
Indicate precisely what you mean to say
Yours sincerely, wasting away
Give me your answer, fill in a form
Mine for evermore
Will you still need me, will you still feed me,
When I'm sixty-four.

Paul McCartney & Wings Band on The Run


Από το Band on the Run [1973]
IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
Stuck inside these four walls, sent inside forever,
Never seeing no one nice again like you,
Mama you, mama you.
If i ever get out of here,
Thought of giving it all away
To a registered charity.
All i need is a pint a day
If i ever get out of here.

Well, the rain exploded with a mighty crash as we fell into the sun,
And the first one said to the second one there i hope you're having fun.
Band on the run, band on the run.
And the jailer man and sailor sam were searching every one

For the band on the run, band on the run, band on the run, band on the run

Well, the undertaker drew a heavy sigh seeing no one else had come,
And a bell was ringing in the village square for the rabbits on the run.
Band on the run, band on the run.
And the jailer man and sailor sam, were searching every one

For the band on the run, band on the run, band on the run, band on the run

Well, the night was falling as the desert world began to settle down.
In the town they're searching for us every where, but we never w ill be found.
Band on the run, band on the run

And the county judge, who held a grudge
Will search for evermore
For the band on the run, band on the run, band on the run, band on the run

Paul McCartney - No more lonely nights

Από το Give My Regards to Broad Street [1984]
IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII
I can wait another day until I call you
You've only got my heart on a string
And everything a'flutter
But another lonely night might take forever
We've only got each other to blame
It's all the same to me love
'Cause I know what I feel to be right
No more lonely nights
No more lonely nights
You my guiding light
Day or night I'm always there
May I never miss the thrill of being near you
And if it takes a couple of years
To turn your tears to laughter
I will do what I feel to be right
No more lonely nights (never be another)
No more lonely nights
You my guiding light
Day or night I'm always there
And I won't go away until you tell me so
No, I'll never go away
Yes, I know what I feel to be right
No more lonely nights (never be another)
No more lonely nights
You my guiding light
Day or night I'm always there
And I won't go away until you tell me so
No, I'll never go away
And I won't go away until you tell me so
No, I'll never go away
No more lonely nights

Paul McCartney - Ever Present Past


Το 1ο single από το πρόσφατο lp του P.M. "
Memory Almost Full " για τις Η.Π.Α.
IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

I've got too much on my plate
Don't have no time to be a decent lover
I hope it isn't too late
Searching for the time that has gone so fast
The time that I thought would last
My Ever Present Past

I've got too much on my mind
I think of everything to be discovered
I hope there's something to find
Searching for the time that has gone so fast
The time that I thought would last
My Ever Present Past

[Chorus:]
The things I think I did
I do, I think I did
The things I think I did
When I was a kid

[Bridge:]
I couldn't understand a word that they were saying
But still I hung around and took it all in
I wouldn't join in with the games that they were playing
It went by, it went by, in a flash
It flew by, it flew by, in a flash

[Guitar solo]

There's far too much on my plate
Don't have no time to be a decent lover
I hope it's never too late
Searching for the time that has gone so fast
The time that I thought would last
My Ever Present Past

The things I think I did
I do, I think I did
The things I think I did
When I was a kid

The things I think I did
I do, I think I did
The things I think I did
When I was a kid, when I was a kid

Cinderella - Long Cold Winter



Λίγη χειμωνιάτικη δροσιά ακόμη από τους Cinderella, (έβαλε το χέρι του και ο Σαμμάνος για να έλθουν) σε ένα από τα καλύτερα τραγούδια τους.

^^^^^^^
I've been down
I've been cryin' in the dead of night
I've been tryin', I've been tryin'
To find the time to make it right
It's gonna be a long cold winter
Long cold winter without your love

I've been walkin'
I've been freezin'
Freezin' from a love I left behind
I've been searchin', I've been searchin'
Can't find my peace of mind
It's gonna be a long cold winter
Long cold winter without your love

I've been down ooo, I've been down yea
Baby baby baby ooo I'm freezin'
I'm freezin', I'm freezin', I'm cold
So so so cold
It's gonna be a long cold winter
Long cold winter without your love yea

The Eucaliptus Forest
When mother came here
beautiful and young
then Dad built her a house on a hill.
The springs passed
half a century passed
and curls(of hair) aged (became white) in this time.
But on the shore of Jordan
Nothing great happened
The same silence
the same place
The Eucaliptus forest
the bridge and the boat
and the salty smell above the water (*2)
Here it comes down the trail,
the group of babies
They are in Jordan paddling with their legs.
The babies have grown up
they've already learnt to crawl
and the youths
are strolling in pairs.

Roky Erickson - Cold Night For Alligators




____________________

Foreigner - Cold As Ice



******

You're as cold as ice, You're willing to sacrifice our love
You never take advice, someday youll pay the price, I know

I've seen it before, it happens all the time
You're closing the door, you leave the world behind
You're digging for gold, youre throwing away
A fortune in feelings, but someday youll pay

Youre as cold as ice, youre willing to sacrifice our love
You want paradise, but someday youll pay the price, I know

Ive seen it before, it happens all the time
You're closing the door, you leave the world behind
You're digging for gold, You're throwing away
A fortune in feelings, but someday you'll pay

(solo)

Cold as ice - you know that you are
Cold as ice - as cold as ice to me
Cold as ice

You're as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know, yes I know
You're as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know, oh yes I know
You're as cold as ice, cold as ice, I know, oh yes I know
You're as cold as ice... (to fade)
____________________

Rainbow - Stone Cold



******

Every night I have the same old dream
'bout you and me and what's in between
So many changes, so many lies
Try to run, try to hide
from everything that I feel inside
But I can't escape you or your frozen eyes...
Searching in the darkness
Fading out of sight
Love was here and gone like a thief in the night...
Stone cold...
And I thought I knew you so well
Stone cold
Can't break away from your spell

Another dark and empty night
If I was wrong I wanna make it right
But you are so distant, so far away
Your words like ice fall on the ground
Breaking the silence without a sound
Oh familiar strangers with nothing to say
Searching in the darkness
Fading out of sight
Love was here and gone like a thief in the night...
Stone cold...
And I thought I knew you so well...
Stone cold
Can't break away from your spell...
You leave me stone cold

Searching in the darkness
Fading out of sight
Love was here and gone like a thief in the night...
Stone cold...
And I thought I knew you so well
Stone cold
Can't break away from your spell
You're stone cold...yeah
I can't break away from your spell
Stone cold...baby
I thought I knew you so well
You're stone cold...ice cold
Can't break away from your spell
(you put me in the deep freeze)
(oh baby don't you leave me)
(stone...cold, your leavin'me cold)
Stone cold...i thought I knew you so well
Stone cold...can't break away from your spell

The White Stripes - In The Cold Cold Night



******

I saw you standing in the corner
On the edge of a burning light
I saw you standing in the corner
Come to me again in the cold, cold night

You make me feel a little older
Like a full grown woman might
But when you're gone I grow colder
Come to me again in the cold, cold night

I see you walking by my front door
I hear the creaking of the kitchen floor
I don't care what other people say
I'm going to love you, anyway
Come to me again in the cold, cold night

I can't stand it any longer
I need the fuel to make my fire burn bright
So don't fight it any longer
Come to me again in the cold, cold night

And I know that you feel it too
When my skin turns into glue
You will know that it's warm inside
And you'll come run to me, in the cold, cold night

Chris de Burgh - Crusader



O Chris de Burgh ταξιδεύει ξανά με το Crusader στη Μέση Ανατολή σε μιά άλλη όμως εποχή. Από το ομώνυμο LP του (Crusader, 1979 ). Το τραγούδι έχει κατακρεουργηθεί στα ελληνικά από το Βασίλη Παπακωνσταντίνου

+++++ CdB +++++


What do I do next? said the bishop to the priest,
I have spent my whole life waiting, preparing for the feast,
And now you say jerusalem has fallen and is lost,
The king of heathen saracen has seized the holy cross.

Then the priest said oh my bishop, we must put them to the sword,
For God in all his mercy will find a just reward,
For the noblemen and sinners, and knights of ready hand
Who will be the lords crusader, send word throughout all the land,

Jerusalem is lost,
Jerusalem is lost,
Jerusalem is lost;

Tell me what to do, said the king upon his throne,
But speak to me in whispers for we are not alone,
They tell me that jerusalem has fallen to the hand
Of some bedevilled eastern heathen who has seized the holy land;

Then the chamberlain said lord, we must call upon our foes
In spain and france and germany to end our bitter wars,
All christian men must be as one and gather for the fight,
You will be their leader, begin the battle cry,

Jerusalem is lost,
Jerusalem is lost,
Jerusalem is lost...

Ooh, high on a hill, in the town of jerusalem,
There stood saladin, the king of the saracens,
Whoring and drinking and snoring and sinking, around him his army lay,
Secure in the knowledge that they had won the day;

A messenger came, blood on his feet and a wound in his chest,
The christians are coming! he said, I have seen their cross in the west,
In a rage saladin struck him down with his knife
And he said I know that this man lies,
They quarrel too much, the christians could never unite!

I am invincible, I am the king,
I am invincible, and I will win...

Close they came, the army of richard the lionheart,
Marching by day and night, with soldiers from every part,
And when the crusaders came over the mountain and they saw jerusalem,
They fell to their knees and prayed for her release;

They started the battle at dawn, taking the city by storm,
With horsemen and bowmen and engines of war,
They broke through the city walls,
The heathens were flying and screaming and dying,
And the christian swords were strong,
And saladin ran when he heard their victory song;

We are invincible, God is the king,
We are invincible, and we will win!

What do I do now? said the wiseman to the fool,
I have spent my whole life searching, to find the golden rule,
Though centuries have disappeared, the memory still remains
Of those enemies together, could it be that way again?

Then the fool said oh you wise men, you really make me laugh,
With your talk of vast persuasion and searching through the past,
There is only greed and evil in the men that fight today,
The song of the crusader has long since gone away,

Jerusalem is lost,
Jerusalem is lost,
Jerusalem is lost...
Jerusalem.

Elissa & Chris De Burgh - Lebanese Night



Εδώ η Elissa συνεργάζεται με τον Chris De Burgh.[2002]
*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
It was late in a Lebanese restaurant, in the heat of a Lebanese night,
There was dancing, people were singing, she came in from the garden outside,
And in her eyes I saw the stars,
And I felt something happen in my heart;
Then I knew I was going to meet her in the heat of a Lebanese night,
And the girl inside the woman, who came over to sit by my side,
And when she smiled, the whole world stopped,
It was then I heard the echoes of a child;
And did you go to your bed with a sweet lullaby,
And the sound of the guns in the night,
And did you dance in the fields, did you run for your life,
From the hell that came down from the sky?
On a Lebanese night, on a Lebanese night;
We went down to the edge of the water, by the light of a Lebanese dawn,
And she told me all the stories of her beautiful land in the war,
Her tears fell down, the sun came up,
And I saw again the young girl in her eyes;
And did you go to your bed with a sweet lullaby,
And the sound of the guns in the night,
And did you dance in the fields, did you run for your life,
From the hell that came down from the sky?
On a Lebanese night, on a Lebanese night;
All of my life, all I have known,
only a place where peace cannot go;
All over the world, the gift from before,
nothing is left for the children of war;
And did you go to your bed with a sweet lullaby,
And the sound of the guns in the night,
And did you dance in the fields, did you run for your life,
From the hell that came down from the sky?
On a Lebanese night, on a Lebanese night,
On a Lebanese night, on a Lebanese night,
I will be waiting, in the Lebanon.

Dolores o'Riordan, Simon Le Bon - Linger



Ένα από τα πολλά ντουέτα που έχει κάνει η Dolores o'Riordan εδώ με το Simon Le Bon. Συγκρίνετε με το προηγούμενο ποστ και προσέξτε πόσο βελτιωμένη εμφανισιακά είναι τώρα η D o'R
%%%%%%%%%%%
If you, if you could return
Don’t let it burn, don’t let it fade
I’m sure I’m not being rude
But it’s just your attitude
It’s tearing me apart
It’s ruining everything
And I swore, I swore I would be true
And honey so did you
So why were you holding her hand
Is that the way we stand
Were you lying all the time
Was it just a game to you

But I’m in so deep
You know I’m such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger
Do you have to, do you have to
Do you have to let it linger

Oh, I thought the world of you
I thought nothing could go wrong
But I was wrong
I was wrong
If you, if you could get by
Trying not to lie
Things wouldn’t be so confused
And I wouldn’t feel so used
But you always really knew
I just wanna be with you

And I’m in so deep
You know I’m such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger
Do you have to. do you have to
Do you have to let it linger

And I’m in so deep
You know I’m such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger
Do you have to, do you have to
Do you have to let it linger

You know I’m such a fool for you
You got me wrapped around your finger
Do you have to let it linger
Do you have to, do you have to
Do you have to let it linger

Dolores O Riordan - Angel Fire / 'Are You Listening?' [album sampler]



""""""""""""""""



Η εμφάνιση της Dolores O Riordan στο Λυκαβηττό απόψε είναι ευκαιρία για να ακούσουν ζωντανά οι θεατές τραγούδια από το πρώτο προσωπικό της LP Are You Listening? [2007], που είναι η καλύτερη δουλειά της τα τελευταία χρόνια, ξεφεύγοντας από το τέλμα στο οποίο είχαν βρεθεί οι The Cranberries.

Another lonely night in December
(Jaweh, Jaweh, Jaweh)
It is the time of year people remember
(Jaweh, Jaweh)
I can't find a word to say to you
I can't comprehend, I can't relate to you

Plain to see no flies on me
Take me higher Angel Fire
Take me where I want to go
Teach me things I need to know
Plain to see no flies on me
Take me higher Angel Fire
Take me where I want to go
Teach me things I need to know

I'm knowing this could be our last event
(Jaweh, Jaweh, Jaweh)
I'm knowing I am your youngest descent
I don't want to know your pain
I don't want to play the game

Plain to see no flies on me
Take me higher Angel Fire
Take me where I want to go
Teach me things I need to know
Plain to see no flies on me
Take me higher Angel Fire
Take me where I want to go
Teach me things I need to know

I can't find a word to say to you
I can't comprehend, I can't relate to you

Plain to see you faithfully
Take me higher Angel Fire
Take me where I want to go
Teach me things I need to know
Can't you see you're made for me
Take me higher Angel Fire
Take me where I want to go
Teach me things I need to know
Can't you see you're made for me
Take me higher Angel Fire
Take me where I want to go
Teach me things I need to know

(Who knows)

Για μια καυτή νύχτα στη Βουδαπέστη μιλά το τραγούδι από το Crest of a Knave [1987]. Σίγουρα θα κάνουν ακόμα πιο καυτή τη νύχτα στην Αθήνα οι Jethro Tull με την εμφάνισή τους απόψε στο Λυκαβηττό.

*******JT*******

I think she was a middle-distance runner...
(the translation wasn't clear).
Could be a budding stately hero.
International competition in a year.
She was a good enough reason for a party...
(well, you couldn't keep up on a hard track mile)
while she ran a perfect circle.
And she wore a perfect smile
in Budapest... hot night in Budapest.

We had to cozzy up in the old gymnasium...
dusting off the mandolins and checking on the gear.
She was helping out at the back-stage...
stopping hearts and chilling beer.
Yes, and her legs went on for ever.
Like staring up at infinity
through a wisp of cotton panty
along a skin of satin sea.
Hot night in Budapest.

You could cut the heat, peel it back with the wrong side of a knife.
Feel it blowing from the sidefills. Feel like you were playing for your life
(if not the money).
Hot night in Budapest.

She bent down to fill the ice box
and stuffed some more warm white wine in
like some weird unearthly vision
wearing only T-shirt, pants and skin.
You know, it rippled, just a hint of muscle.
But the boys and me were heading west
so we left her to the late crew
and a hot night in Budapest.
It was a hot night in Budapest.

She didn't speak much English language...
(she didn't speak much anyway).
She wouldn't make love, but she could make good sandwich
and she poured sweet wine before we played.

Hey, Budapest, cha, cha, cha. Let's watch her now.

I thought I saw her at the late night restaurant.
She would have sent blue shivers down the wall.
But she didn't grace our table.
In fact, she wasn't there at all.
Yes, and her legs went on forever.
Like staring up at infinity.
Her heart was spinning to the west-lands
and she didn't care to be
that night in Budapest.
Hot night in Budapest.

Van Morrison and Bob Dylan - Crazy Love



Οι Van Morrison και Bob Dylan τραγουδούν το Crazy Love στην Αθήνα, με φόντο την Ακρόπολη.
8888888888888888888
I can hear her heart beat for a thousand miles
And the heavens open every time she smiles
And when I come to her that's where I belong
Yet I'm running to her like a river's song

[Chorus:]
She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love
She give me love, love, love, love, crazy love

She's got a fine sense of humor when I'm feeling low down
And when I come to her when the sun goes down
Take away my trouble, take away my grief
Take away my heartache, in the night like a thief

[Chorus]

Yes I need her in the daytime
Yes I need her in the night
Yes I want to throw my arms around her
Kiss her hug her kiss her hug her tight

And when I'm returning from so far away
She gives me some sweet lovin' brighten up my day
Yes it makes me righteous, yes it makes me feel whole
Yes it makes me mellow down in to my soul

[Chorus]

Alice Cooper - Steven



Ο Alice Cooper εμφανίζεται απόψε στο Λυκαβηττό. Οι συναυλίες του χαρακτηρίζονται από το θεατρικό "horror" στοιχείο. Το Steven ήταν κομμάτι του θρυλικού Welcome to My Nightmare (1975).

ΩΩΩΩΩ AC ΩΩΩΩΩ


I don't want to see you go,
I don't even want to be there.
I will cover up my eyes
And pray it goes away.
You've only lived a minute of your life
I must be dreaming,
Please stop screaming.
I don't like to hear you cry.
You just don't know
How deep that cuts me.
So I will cover up my eyes
And it will go away.
You've only lived a minute of your life
I must be dreaming,
Please stop screaming.
Steven
I hear my name. (Steven)
Is someone calling me ?
I hear my name. (Steven)
That icy breath,
It whispers screams of pain.
I don't want to feel you die,
But if that's the way
That God has planned you,
I'll put pennies on your eyes
And it will go away, see ?
You've only lived a minute of your life
I must be dreaming,
Please stop screaming.
(Steven) (Is someone calling me ? - No)
(Steven)
(I think I hear a voice,
It's outside the door.)
(Steven) I hear my name.
(Steven) (Is someone calling me ?
I hear my name.)
(Steven) (What do you want ?)
(Steven) (What do you want ?)
(What do you want ?) (Steven)
(I hear my name.)

Tesla - Paradise



Κι ένα από τα πιό τρυφερά τραγούδια των Tesla στην καλύτερη εκτέλεσή του, αυτή από το Five Man Acoustical Jam (1990)

~~~TESLA~~~

(Keith, Wheat, Hannon)

Hold me close now, hold me tight, don't let go of me tonight
You're all I want, you're all I need
Hold me close now, hold me tight, and don't let go of me tonight
Sweet paradise, yeah

How I love all of those crazy little things you've said and done for me
You're the one for me
Darlin', dry your eyes, I can't stand to see you cry
Now just turn and walk away, don't look back when I say goodbye paradise

Days go by and life goes on, I feel I've been away too long
What I would give to be with you, days go by and life drags on
Feel I've been away too long, for much too long, yeah

And all the while that I'm away, don't let our love fade away
Don't you fade away
Now as sure as the sun is gonna shine, the day will come
Now I'm waitin' for the day, there'll be no more sayin' goodbye paradise

My sweet paradise, you are the reason why it tears me up inside
And I break down and cry, didn't wanna say goodbye paradise

I'm comin' home to you tonight, comin' home to you tonight
So hold on tight, tonight I'm on my way back home to paradise

I'm so lost without you, I can't live without you
I've been away too long, now, tonight I'm on my way back home to you
My my paradise, my my paradise
To hold you in my arms, you're all that I adore
To see your smilin' face as I walk through the door
I'll never say goodbye again, no

[Solo]

Hey, we're Pogo! Oh, okay. Here we go
As a matter of fact, this song was wrote about a town that is not part of
where we're from (Freebird!) No, we're not from Alabama, man
We're from California (Californ-I-A. We like Philadelphia though, I mean)
Oh yeah, we like ya a whole bunch (yeah, we're ready)

Tesla - Thank You



Τη διασκευή του Thank You των Led Zeppelin συμπεριλαμβάνει το νέο cd των Tesla , Reel to Reel που κυκλοφόρησε στις 5 Ιουνίου.

~~~TESLA~~~

If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me.

Kind woman, I give you my all, Kind woman, nothing more.

Little drops of rain whisper of the pain, tears of loves lost in the days gone by.
My love is strong, with you there is no wrong,
together we shall go until we die. My, my, my.
An inspiration is what you are to me, inspiration, look... see.

And so today, my world it smiles, your hand in mine, we walk the miles,
Thanks to you it will be done, for you to me are the only one.
Happiness, no more be sad, happiness....I'm glad.
If the sun refused to shine, I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea, there will still be you and me.

Alison Moyet - Do You Ever Wonder



Τα 46 της χρόνια συμπληρώνει σήμερα η Alison Moyet. Το Do You Ever Wonder προέρχεται από το Hometime [2002]
`````AM`````

Do you ever wonder
What it's like
To be alone and
No sleep at night
Ever wonder
Is this for real
Ever Wonder

Sometimes I think you sigh
Time drifts by, once in a life
Love is strong

I won't feel anything
I'm lost without you

In my mind a picture
That you frame
Kaleidoscope of love you're showing me
Loving sweet rays
All hopes that fade
My only gain
My lonely game played without you

You sigh
Time drifts by, once in a life
Love is strong

I won't feel anything
I'm lost without you

Through the wake of you
Every now and then
Every now and then
The road that I follow is so far from you

Do you every wonder

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

Emerson, Lake & Palmer - C'est la Vie



Ένα υπέροχο κομμάτι από τους Emerson, Lake & Palmer. To C'est la Vie υπήρχε στο Works Volume I [1977]

#####ELP#####

C'est la vie
Have your leaves all turned to brown
Will you scatter them around you
C'est la vie
Do you love
And then how am I to know
If you dont let your love show for me
C'est la vie

Oh c'est la vie
Oh c'est la vie
Who knows, who cares, for me
C'est la vie

In the night
Do you light a lover's fire
Do the ashes of desire for you remain
Like the sea
There's a love to deep to show
Took a storm before my love
Flowed for you
C'est la vie

Oh c'est la vie
Oh c'est la vie
Who knows, who cares, for me
C'est la vie

Like a song
Out of tune and out of time
All I needed was a rhyme for you
C'est la vie
Do you give
Do you live from day to day
Is there no song I can play for you
C'est la vie

Oh c'est la vie
Oh c'est la vie
Who knows, who cares, for me
C'est la vie

Rory Gallagher -Tatto´d Lady (Live Montreux 94)



Δώδεκα χρόνια συμπληρώθηκαν από το θάνατο του Rory Gallagher. Ο μεγάλος Ιρλανδός μας αποχαιρέτισε στις 14 Ιουνίου. Εδώ στο Montreux λίγο καιρό πριν "φύγει". Το Tatto´d Lady υπήρχε στο Tattoo [1973]

---------RG---------

Tattoo'd Lady,
Bearded baby,
They're my family.
When I was lonely,
Something told me, where,
I could always be.
Where I could,
Wish for pennies,
If we had any.
You'd meet me down,
At the shooting gallery.
Yes I'm a,
Fair ground baby.
Wonder what made me,
Fall for the pearly queen.
I spent my youth,
Under canvas roof,
As I roamed from town to town.
I'm not fooling,
When I say I got no schoolin',
Never like the class bell sound.
From the caravan,
I hear the fairground band,
Sounding good as they can be.
You know I can't be found,
But if you look around,
Tomorrow we'll be gone by dawn.
Alright...
Now hear it on the loud speaker say,
The fire eater is a real fine sight to see,
Yeah he's a death cheater,
Some kind of central heater,
Be sure to save a seat for me.
Let me tell you 'bout wicked Sadie,
She's no baby,
The law came,
And tried to close her sideshow down.
But soon she had the D.A. cheering,
The police chief wearing,
Her garter for a crown.
I spent my youth,
Under canvas roof,
As I roamed from town to town.
I'm not fooling,
When I say I got no schoolin',
Never like the school bell sound.
From the caravan,
I hear the fairground band,
Sounding good as they can be.
You know I can't be found,
But if you look around,
Tomorrow we'll be gone by dawn.
Yeahh...
Tattoo'd Lady,
Bearded baby,
They're my family.
When I was lonely,
Something told me, where,
I could always be.
Where I could,
Wish for pennies,
If we had any.
You'd meet me down,
At the shooting gallery.
Tattoo'd lady........

Bob Dylan - Things Have Changed



Το Things Have Changed υπήρχε στο soundtrack της ταινίας Wonder Boys (2000). Κυκλοφόρησε σα single όμως υπάρχει και στα The Essential Bob Dylan - (2000) και The best of Bob Dylan Volume 2 (2000)

~~~~~~~BD~~~~~~

A worried man with a worried mind
No one in front of me and nothing behind
There's a woman on my lap and she's drinking champagne
Got white skin, got assassin's eyes
I'm looking up into the sapphire tinted skies
I'm well dressed, waiting on the last train

Bridge #1:
Standing on the gallows with my head in a noose
Any minute now I'm expecting all hell to break loose

Chorus
People are crazy and times are strange
I'm locked in tight, I'm out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

This place ain't doing me any good
I'm in the wrong town, I should be in Hollywood
Just for a second there I thought I saw something move
Gonna take dancing lessons do the jitterbug rag
Ain't no shortcuts, gonna dress in drag
Only a fool in here would think he's got anything to prove

Bridge #2
Lot of water under the bridge, Lot of other stuff too
Don't get up gentlemen, I'm only passing through

(chorus)

I've been walking forty miles of bad road
If the bible is right, the world will explode
I've been trying to get as far away from myself as I can
Some things are too hot to touch
The human mind can only stand so much
You can't win with a losing hand

Bridge #3
Feel like falling in love with the first woman I meet
Putting her in a wheel barrow and wheeling her down the street

(chorus)

I hurt easy, I just don't show it
You can hurt someone and not even know it
The next sixty seconds could be like an eternity
Gonna get low down, gonna fly high
All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie
I'm in love with a woman who don't even appeal to me

Bridge #4
Mr. Jinx and Miss Lucy, they jumped in the lake
I'm not that eager to make a mistake

(chorus)

Manfred Mann's Earth Band - Father of Day, Father of Night (Live 1986)



Μια από τις καλύτερες διασκευές των Manfred Mann's Earth Band είναι αυτή του Father of Day, Father of Night του Bob Dylan στο Solar Fire (1973).

[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[[

Father of night, Father of day,
Father, who taketh the darkness away,
Father, who teacheth the bird to fly,
Builder of rainbows up in the sky,
Father of loneliness and pain,
Father of love and Father of rain.

Father of day, Father of night,
Father of black, Father of white,
Father, who build the mountain so high,
Who shapeth the cloud up in the sky,
Father of time, Father of dreams,
Father, who turneth the rivers and streams.

Father of grain, Father of wheat,
Father of cold and Father of heat,
Father of air and Father of trees,
Who dwells in our hearts and our memories,
Father of minutes, Father of days,
Father of whom we most solemnly praise.

Manfred Mann's Earth Band - Spirits in the Νight (Live 1979)



Οι Manfred Mann's Earth Band έδωσαν με τη διασκευή τους που βρίσκεται στο Nightingales And Bombers μια τελείως διαφορετική διάσταση στο τραγούδι του Bruce Springsteen.

___________________
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Crazy Janey and her mission man
Were back in the alley trading hands
Along came Wild Billy with his friend Gee Man
All duded up for Saturday night
Billy slammed on his coaster brakes, said
Anybody wanna go to Greasy Lake
It's a mile down on the dark side of Route 88
I got a bottle of rosé let's try it
We'll pick up Hazy Davey and Killer Joe and
I'll take you all out to where the gypsy angels go
They're built like light and they dance like
Spirits in the night, all night
Oh you don't know what they can do to you
Spirits in the night, all night
In the night, all night
Stand right up and let them shoot through you

Wild Billy was a crazy cat
And he shook some dust out of his coon skin cap
He said try some of this it'll show you where you're at
Or at least it'll help you to feel it
By the time we made it up to Greasy Lake
My head was out the window
Janey's fingers were in the cake
I think I really dug her, I was too loose to fake
I said I'm hurt she said Honey let's heal it
And we danced all night to a soul fairy band
And she kissed me just right
Like only a lonely angel can
She felt so nice, just as soft as a
Spirit in the night, all night
Janey don't know what she do to you
Spirits in the night, all night
In the night, all night
Stand right up and let her shoot through me

Spirits in the night, in the night
Spirits in the night, all night
Spirits in the night, in the night
Spirits in the night, all night

How the night was bright and the stars threw light
On Billy and Davey dancing in the Moonlight
Down near the water in a stoned mud fight
Killer Joe passed out on the lawn
Hazy Davey got really hurt
He ran into the lake in just his socks and a shirt
Me and Crazy Davey making love in the dirt
Singing our birthday songs
Janey said it was time to go, so we closed our eyes
And said goodbye to gypsy angel row
Felt so right together we moved like
Spirits in the night, all night
Oh you don't know what they can do to you
Spirits in the night, all night
All night, all night
Stand right up and let them shoot through you
Spirits in the night, all night
Oh you don't know what they can do to you
Spirits in the night, all night
Spirits in the night
Spirits in the night

Warlord - Deliver us... / Lost And Lonely Days

Deliver us...



Άλλο ένα Metal συγκρότημα με ελληνική συμμετοχή ( του κιθαρίστα Bill Tsamis o oπoίος ήταν η ψυχή του συγκροτήματος) . Οι Warlord με μια δυστυχώς πολύ μικρή δισκογραφική παρουσία κατάφερα να γίνουν σημείο αναφοράς για τη συνέχεια του Heavy Metal. Εδώ ένα φανταστικό τραγούδι το Deliver us... από τον ομώνυμο δίσκο τους [1983] το οποίο αν και ακούγεται άθλια δίνει ένα χαρακτηριστικό δείγμα της μουσικής τους.
=======W========

Deliver us from all the wicked
Deliver us from the woe
Free, these chains of hell
and now's the time to strike the final blow

One by one, to the swords, to the guns!
Two by two, and away we go
Father and Son, heed the words we pray
Deliver us from Evil this day
Deliver us from Evil today

Deliver us from ill minded rulers
Deliver us from all their talk
See all the evil and the greed
These people that seek what they've lost

One by one, to the swords, to the guns!
Two by two, and away we go
Father and Son, heed the words we pray
Deliver us from Evil this day
Deliver us from Evil today

Prepare for the final awakening
Prepare for the time it has come
Look to the heavens! a crack in the sky
The ending of time has begun
. . . and now all that you have is gone . . .

Deliver us from all the hatred
Deliver us from all the sin
and we who believe will eternally sing
these words in which we call the battle hymn!

One by one, to the swords, to the guns!
Two by two, and away we go
Father and Son, heed the words we pray
Deliver us from Evil this day
Deliver us from Evil today
Deliver us from Evil . . . we pray!

Lost And Lonely Days


Εδώ με καλύτερο ήχο. Από το And The Cannons Of Destruction Have Begun... (1984)
=======W========

She came to me I thought i found her
the girl of all my dreams
And until then I did not know what
happiness could bring
We laughed we cried side by side
the summers turned to years
But winter came the skies have grayed
from happiness to tears

She said she would never leave me
never let me go
But now she's left with me this feeling
so sad and so alone
She went away I tried to find her
I cried aloud her name
I realized it was goodbye
the heartache and the pain

Why did she go away and leave me with the heartache
Why did she leave me with the pain
If I could tell her so I'd tell her that I love her
and all my dreams have gone away
these Lost and Lonely Days

If you could feel the way I feel about you
hear the things I say
If you could see the way I am without you
these Lost and Lonely Days

Firewind - Falling To Pieces



Με τη βοήθεια και κάποιων μελών από άλλες χώρες οι Firewind είναι σήμερα από τους πιο σημαντικούς πρεσβευτές μας στον κόσμο του Heavy Metal. Το Falling To Pieces προέρχεται από το τελευταίο τους LP Allegiance (2006)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Be yourself tonight
Don’t stress yourself tonight
You try the perfect time
Secret lies you hear
Don’t think you’re losing out
It all comes back to you
So get your soul alive
This is going through
Don’t hide
Behind the dark and in the soul
Don’t lie
To yourself no more
Everything is you
But you’re falling to pieces
Let me get you through
I’m falling down with you
Everything is lost
I’ll help you through the darkness
Let me lead you to
Our place is gone for you
Like a stormy weather
You’re moving with the flow
Feeling kind of strange
Feel you want to grow
Don’t hide
Behind the dark and in the soul
Don’t lie
To yourself no more
Everything is you
But you’re falling to pieces
Let me get you through
I’m falling down with you
Everything is lost
I’ll help you through the darkness
Let me lead you to
Our place is gone for you

Τελευταίο album των Ash το Twilight of the Innocents ;


...Έτσι τουλάχιστον ανακοίνωσαν οι ίδιοι. Το Twilight of the Innocents πρόκειται να κυκλοφορήσει στις 2 Ιουλίου.

Semisonic - Secret Smile



Το άκουσα μετά από πολύ καιρό σήμερα στο ραδιόφωνο.
Από το album των Semisonic - Feeling Strangely Fine 1998

@@@@@@@@@@@@@


Nobody knows it but you've got a secret smile
And you use it only for me
Nobody knows it but you've got a secret smile
And you use it only for me
So use it and prove it
Remoce this whirling sadness
I'm losing I'm bluesing
But you can't save me from madness

Nobody knows it but you've got a secret smile
And you use it only for me
Nobody knows it but you've got a secret smile
And you use it only for me

So save me I'm waiting
I'm needing, hear me pleading
And soothe me, improve me
I'm grieving, I'm barely believing it now, now

When you are flying around and around the world
And I'm lying alonely
I know there's something sacred and free reserved
And received by me only

Nine Inch Nails - Survivalism



Το Survivalism είναι το 1ο single των Nine Inch Nails από το νέο τους LP Year Zero

^^^^^^^^ΝΙΝ^^^^^^^^

I should have listened to her,
so hard to keep control.
We kept on eating but our
bloated bellies still not full.
She gave us all she had but
we went and took some more.
Can't seem to shut her legs our
mother nature is a whore.

I got my propaganda i got revisionism.
I got my violence in high def ultra-realism.
All a part of this great nation.
I got my fist I got my plan I got survivalism.

Hypnotic sound of siren
echoing through the street.
The cocking of the rifles,
the marching of the feet.
You see your world on fire,
[Survivalism lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com]

don't try to act surprised.
We did just what you told us.
Lost our faith along the way and found ourselves believing your lies.

I got my propaganda i got revisionism.
I got my violence in high def ultra-realism.
All a part of this great nation.
I got my fist I got my plan I got survivalism.

All bruised and broken bleeding,
she asks to take my hand.
I turn just keep on walking.
But you'd do the same thing in the circumstance I'm sure you understand.

I got my propaganda i got revisionism.
I got my violence in high def ultra-realism.
All a part of this great nation.
I got my fist I got my plan I got survivalism.

Smokie - I'll Meet you at Midnight



Από το ομώνυμο (Smokie - 1976) LP των Smokie


++++++++ % SMOKIE %++++++++

A summer evening on Les Champs Elyses
A secret rendezvous they planned for days.
I see faces in the crowded cafe,
A sound of laughter as the music plays.

Jeanne-Claude was a student at the University,
Louise-Marie is just a world away.
He recall the night they met was warm with laughter
The words were music as she turned away.

I'll meet you at midnight,
Under the moonlight,
I'll meet you at midnight...
But Jeanne-Claude, Louise-Marie will never be...

Each cigarette would light a thousand faces,
Each hour that pass seem like a thousand years.
Midnight was turning into empty spaces
The sound of laughter disappeared.

I'll meet you at midnight,
Under the moonlight,
I'll meet you at midnight...
Oh, but Jeanne-Claude, Louise-Marie will never be...

A summer morning on Les Champs Elyses,
The empty table in the street cafe.
The sunlight melting through an open doorway,
Jeanne-Claude has left to face another day.

I'll meet you at midnight,
Under the moonlight,
I'll meet you at midnight...

I'll meet you at midnight,
Under the moonlight,
I'll meet you at midnight...
Oh, but Jeanne-Claude, Louise-Marie will never be

The Stranglers - Midnight Summer Dream



Απ ό το 7ο LP των The Stranglers Feline (1983)

YUYUYUYUYUYUYUYU

Woke up on a good day
And the world was wonderful
A midnight summer dream had me in its spell

I dreamt about an old man
Sat and watched the rain all night
He couldn't sleep a wink as all the drops fell

He told me of the beauty
Hidden in our foreheads
He told me of the ugliness
We show instead

And when we put a foot wrong do we learn
From all the pain
A midnight summer dream as he watched the rain

Then at midnight he poured another drink
And bent my ear
After midnight we sat up half the night
Or maybe more
And he began to tell me what it was all for

I woke up in an armchair
He had gone I don't know where
Left me there to sit and look at the rain

Don't remember much at all
But his words were echoing
A midnight summer dream and then wake again

Maybe I'll never find him
Maybe he's gone forever
Maybe I'll have to sit here
Watching the weather

One thing's pretty certain helped me
Make it in the night
Showed me somewhere else between wrong and right

And at midnight if you can't sleep
Then I can bend your ear
After midnight we'll sit up half the night
Or maybe more
And I'll begin to tell you what it is all for

Wake up on a good day
And the world feels wonderful
Midnight summer dream has me in its spell.

Thanassis Papapolitis - Farewell

Get this widget | Share | Track details


Από το καινούριο CD του Θανάση Παπαπολίτη που θα κυκλοφορήσει πολύ σύντομα.

Κριτική από το Jazz & Tζαζ Ιουνίου 2007 για το προηγούμενο cd του ( Unreleased Live & Studio Recordings) με ακυκλοφόρητες ηχογραφήσεις από διάφορες περιόδους:

BLUES BOOM!
γράφει ο Φώντας Τρούσας
.......
Από τον Θανάση Παπαπολίτη, έναν καλό μουσικό,που τον έχουμε γνωρίσει κυρίως μέσα από το συγκρότημα του, τους Long Distance Call, λάβαμε πριν από λίγους μήνες ένα ακόμη ενδιαφέρον CD-R υπό τον τίτλο "Unreleased Live". Εγγραφές που έγιναν ανάμεσα στα χρόνια 2000-2006, παρατίθενται δίχως να προβληματίζει, γενικώς, η σειρά τους, η ποιότητα εγγραφής (που πληροί πάντοτε τα minimum τεχνικά στάνταρντ μιας έκδοσης που απευθύνεται στον κόσμο), το στυλ και η τεχνοτροπία τους, και οι οποίες συγκροτούν, οπωσδήποτε, τη συνολική άποψη για το πώς «βλέπει» το blues ο κιθαριστής από την Ιτέα. Ακουστικά, funky, ψυχεδελικά κομμάτια και αυτοσχεδιασμοί, από έναν μουσικό με ιδέες, που έχει πράγματα να πει και κυρίως να δώσει, θα το ξαναπούμε. Προσέξτε τον...

The Gathering - Sleepy Buildings



Στην επίσημη σελίδα των The Gathering ανακοινώθηκε η αποχώρηση της Anneke van Giersbergen μετά τον Αύγουστο. Με νεότερη ανακοίνωση προσκαλούν όσες και όσους ενδιαφέρονται να πάρουν τη θέση της, να επικοινωνήσουν με αυτούς μέσω του link: audition[AT]gathering[DOT]nl

§§§____TG____§§§

Break yourself through the clouds
and build above those sleepy buildings
Mystified by your capabilities
all is yours if you can handle
Visible from higher than the sky
Plane and simple,
the facts are at your feet

Stones are snoring
Walls are breathing loud
Roofs are poking
Into cosmic mouth

Start the artifact
and build above those sleepy buildings
Only you
know what is the absolute best

Stones are snoring
Walls are breathing loud
Roofs are poking
Into cosmic mouth

Fairuz - Habeytek bes sayff (I loved you in summer)



Στις 7 Ιουλίου στο Ηρώδειο εμφανίζεται για πρώτη φορά στην Ελλάδα η μεγάλη Fairuz. Τα εισιτήρια κοστίζουν από 40 - 200 € και θα είναι διαθέσιμα από 16 Ιουνίου. Ελπίζουμε να είμαστε εκεί και να μπορέσουμε να ζήσουμε αυτή την ιστορική στιγμή.

****FAIRUZ****

(English Translation)
In the cold days
in winter
when the sidewalk is a lake
and the street is drowned
this girl has come
from her old house to await him.

He who had told her to wait
but he has gone away
and forgotten
and she withers away
in winter.

I have loved you in summertime
I have loved you in winter
I awaited you in summertime
I awaited you in winter
Your eyes are summer
My eyes are winter
and our rendezvous my love
is beyond summer and beyond winter.

The strange one passed by
and gave me a message
my lover had written
with his tears
I opened the message
whose letters were lost
and days passed
years estranged us
while winter had erased
the letters of the message.

Blue Oyster Cult - Joan Crawford



Από το Fire of Unknown Origin [1981]

=======BOC========

Junkies down in brooklyn are going crazy
They're laughing just like hungry dogs in the street
Policemen are hiding behind the skirts of little girls
Their eyes have turned the color of frozen meat

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Joan crawford has risen from the grave
Joan crawford has risen from the grave

Catholic school girls have thrown away their mascara
They chain themselves to the axles of big mac trucks
The sky is filled with herds of shivering angels
The fat lady laughs, gentlemen, start your trucks

Oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Joan crawford has risen from the grave
Joan crawford has risen from the grave

Christina
Mothers home
Christina
Come to mother
Christina

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
Joan crawford has risen from the grave
Joan crawford has risen from the grave
Joan crawford has risen from the grave
Joan crawford has risen

Fates Warning - Through Different Eyes



Από το lp των Fates Warning :
Perfect Symmetry (1989)
HHHHHHHHHFWHHHHHHHHHH

We're walking within a shadow
where echoes of different times resound
looking for memories to relive
in yesterdays that can't be found.

Through different eyes
we keep looking for what we lack.
Changing minds
take us away, and you can't go back.

And staring into ageless eyes
that shared secrets too dark for light
we're searching for old bonds in places
that lie forever out of sight

Through different eyes
we keep looking for what we lack.
Changing minds
take us away, and you can't go back
to different times
or ageless eyes, free from sorrow.
Changing hearts
will hide the past from tomorrow.

Through different eyes we try to find
people and places we've left behind.
