When I first met you, baby

First met you, baby
Baby, you were just sweet sixteen
You just left your home then, baby
The sweetest thing I'd ever seen

But you wouldn't do nothing, baby
You wouldn't do anything I ask you to
You wouldn't do nothing for me, baby
You wouldn't do anything I ask you to
You know you ran away from your home, baby
And now you wanna run away from old B too

You know I love you, baby
And I'll do anything you tell me to do
You know, you know I love you, baby
Baby I love you and I'll do anything you tell me to
Nothing in the world, baby
Babe, it ain't nothing
Nothing in the world I wouldn't do it for you

I just got back from Vietnam baby
And you know I'm a long long way from New Orleans
I just got back from Vietnam baby, oh baby
And I'm a long long way from New Orleans
I'm having so much trouble baby
Baby, I wonder, what in the world is gonna happen to me?

Treat me mean, baby
But I'll keep on loving you just the same
Treat me mean, treat me mean baby
I'll keep loving you, keep on loving you just the same
But one of these days, baby
You're gonna give a lot of money
To hear someone call my name

Yes, sweet sixteen baby, sweet sixteen
Yes the sweetest thing baby
Yes the sweetest thing I've ever seen
Ye, you know I'm having so much trouble, people
Baby I wonder, yes I wonder, baby I wonder
Oh, I wonder what in the world's gonna happen to me

3 Doors Down - When You're Young

File:3 doors down time of my life.png





Σήμερα κυκλοφορεί το καινούριο άλμπουμ των  3 Doors Down, Time of My Life.
Το Time Of My Life που είναι το πέμπτο τους άλμπουμ, έχει ηχογραφηθεί στο Λος Άντζελες και στο Τόκιο και έχει αποσπάσει στην πλειοψηφία τους πολύ καλές κριτικές. Το  When You're Young είναι το πρώτο σινγκλ του άλμπουμ.

So far away from knowin' where I'm goin'
I'm tryin' hard to find out who I am
They all say that I don't know what I'm doin'
I say they don't hardly understand

Why can't they remember?
I'll never forget
How these dreams can come undone
When you're young

You give what you give 'cause they make you
Trapped inside a place that won't take you
They want you to be what they make you
It's already over and done
When you're young

Everything seems perfect
Everything's okay (Everything's okay)
It will all get better now
At least that's what they say
But I don't see it coming
You give what you give 'cause they make you
Trapped inside a place that won't take you
And they want you to be what they make you
It's already over and done
When you're young

Days really just seem longer
They say it's better this way
I hope one day I'm stronger than I feel
And I hope that it feels different than today

You give what you give 'cause they make you
Trapped inside a place that won't take you
And they want you to be what they make you
It's already over and done
It's already over and done
It's already over and done
When you're young

Why can't they remember?
I'll never forget
How these dreams come undone
When you're young

Hanne Boel - A Thousand Kisses Deep / Funny How Time Slips Away



Με τη διασκευή του A Thousand Kisses Deep του Leonard Cohen αρχίζει το καινούριο άλμπουμ της Hanne Boel, The Shining Of Things   που κυκλοφόρησε πρόσφατα. Στό άλμπουμ υπάρχει επίσης και διασκευή του Funny How Time Slips Away του  Willie Nelson που τραγουδά σε ντουέτο με το Mario Biondi.

A Thousand Kisses Deep



The ponies run, the girls are young,
The odds are there to beat.
You win a while, and then it’s done –
Your little winning streak.
And summoned now to deal
With your invincible defeat,
You live your life as if it’s real,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

I’m turning tricks, I’m getting fixed,
I’m back on Boogie Street.
You lose your grip, and then you slip
Into the Masterpiece.
And maybe I had miles to drive,
And promises to keep:
You ditch it all to stay alive,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

And sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

Confined to sex, we pressed against
The limits of the sea:
I saw there were no oceans left
For scavengers like me.
I made it to the forward deck.
I blessed our remnant fleet –
And then consented to be wrecked,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

I’m turning tricks, I’m getting fixed,
I’m back on Boogie Street.
I guess they won’t exchange the gifts
That you were meant to keep.
And quiet is the thought of you,
The file on you complete,
Except what we forgot to do,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

And sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go,
A Thousand Kisses Deep.

The ponies run, the girls are young,
The odds are there to beat . . .

Funny How Time Slips Away



 Well hello there,
my it's been a long long time
How am I doin',
oh well I guess I'm doin' fine
It's been so long now and it seems that
It was only yesterday
Mmm, ain't it funny how time slips away
How's your new love,
I hope that he's doin' fine
Heard you told him, yes baby
That you'd love him till the end of time
Well you know, that's the same thing
[Funny How Time Slips Away lyrics on http://www.elyricsworld.com]

that you told me
Well it seems like just the other day
Mmm, ain't it funny how time slips away
Gotta go now,
guess I'll see you hanging round
Don't know when though, oh
Never know when I'll be back in town
But I remember what I told you
That in time your gonna pay
Well ain't it surprisin' how time slips away
Yeah, ain't it surprisin' how time slips away

Alkaline Trio - The American Scream



Παλιότερο κυρίως υλικό ηχογραφημένο ξανά ημι-ακουστικά περιλαμβάνει το νέο άλμπουμ των  Alkaline TrioDamnesia που αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσει στις 12 Ιουλίου. Εκτός από την επανηχογράφηση παλίότερουυ υλικού θα υπάρχουν επίσης 2 νέα κομμάτια ("Olde English 800" και "I Remember a Rooftop") και μια διασκευή του  I Held Her in My Arms  των Violent Femmes.

They tied that yellow ribbon round the oak tree
They’ve worn out all the prayer in their hearts
All along thought they were rooting for the home team
As they’re sent into the game and torn apart

We twist this tourniquet upon a pipeline
Carries all the pain in the world
As we blindly clap and cheer from the sidelines, It’s clear
On a losing streak from the very start

And that’s where they found me
In the cemetery
A smoking gun in my hand now
I’m damned for the land of the free
Sing with me

The American Scream

They took that faded ribbon off the oak tree
The’ve worn out all the hope in their hearts
All along thought I was doing the right thing
Now I’m lying in a pool of my blood

And that’s where she found me
In the cemetery
A smoking gun in my hand now
I’m damned for the land of the free
Sing with me

And that’s where she found me
In the cemetery
A smoking gun in my hand now
I’m damned for the land of the free
Sing with me

The American Scream
The American Scream

And that’s where she found me
In the cemetery
A smoking gun in my hand now
I’m damned for the land of the free
Sing with me

The American Scream

James Douglas Morrison (8 Δεκεμβρίου 1943 – 3 Ιουλίου 1971)




Πέρασαν 40 χρόνια από τη μέρα που άφησε στο Παρίσι την τελευταία του πνοή ο Jim Morrison. Η εμβληματική μορφή των The Doors πέρασε στην άλλη πλευρά στις 3 Ιουλίου του 1971, χρονιά που η σημαδεύτηκε  με μεγάλες απώλειες στο χώρο της μουσικής. Ο Jim Morrison  μαζί με όλα τα άλλα ξεχώριζε για τη μόρφωση και την πνευματική καλλιέργειά του που αποτυπώθηκε αδρά και στην ποίησή του (οι στίχοι του έχουν θέση σίγουρα στην  ποίηση και όχι στην απλή στιχοπλοκή). Ελάχιστοι τραγουδιστές κατάφεραν να μετουσιώσουν το ρόλο του frontman πέρα από τη σκηνή και την παρουσίαση του συγκροτήματός τους σε πραγματικό επιδραστικό ηγέτη όσο ο Jim Morrison. Η αναχώρησή του μας στέρησε τη δυνατότητα να έχουμε δείγματα από μια πιο ώριμη φάση του όμως διατήρησε και θα διατηρεί ανεξίτηλη τη μορφή και την προσωπικότητά του στα επόμενα χρόνια.
Ένα εξαιρετικό αφιέρωμα στο Jim Morrison  έκανε πριν ένα χρόνο το ArtMag.


The Doors - Spanish Caravan



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

The Doors - Moonlight Drive


Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Penetrate the evenin' that the
City sleeps to hide
Let's swim out tonight, love
It's our turn to try
Parked beside the ocean
On our moonlight drive
Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Surrender to the waiting worlds
That lap against our side
Nothin' left open
And no time to decide
We've stepped into a river
On our moonlight drive
Let's swim to the moon
Let's climb through the tide
You reach your hand to hold me
But I can't be your guide
Easy, I love you
As I watch you glide
Falling through wet forests
On our moonlight drive, baby
Moonlight drive
Come on, baby, gonna take a little ride
Down, down by the ocean side
Gonna get real close
Get real tight
Baby gonna drown tonight
Goin' down, down, down


The Doors - Not to Touch The Earth





Not to touch the earth
Not to see the sun
Nothing left to do, but
Run, run, run
Let's run
Let's run
House upon the hill
Moon is lying still
Shadows of the trees
Witnessing the wild breeze
C'mon baby run with me
Let's run
Run with me
Run with me
Run with me
Let's run
The mansion is warm, at the top of the hill
Rich are the rooms and the comforts there
Red are the arms of luxuriant chairs
And you won't know a thing till you get inside
Dead president's corpse in the driver's car
The engine runs on glue and tar
Come on along, not goin' very far
To the East to meet the Czar
Run with me
Run with me
Run with me
Let's run
Whoa!
Some outlaws lived by the side of a lake
The minister's daughter's in love with the snake
Who lives in a well by the side of the road
Wake up, girl, we're almost home
Ya, c'mon!
We should see the gates by mornin'
We should be inside the evenin'

The Doors  - My eyes have seen you

 

My eyes have seen you
My eyes have seen you
My eyes have seen you
Stand in your door
When we meet inside
Show me some more
Show me some more
Show me some more
My eyes have seen you
My eyes have seen you
My eyes have seen you
Turn and stare
Fix your hair
Move upstairs
Move upstairs
Move upstairs
My eyes have seen you
My eyes have seen you
My eyes have seen you
Free from disguise
Gazing on a city under
Television skies
Television skies
Television skies
My eyes have seen you
My eyes have seen you
Eyes have seen you
Let them photograph your soul
Memorize your alleys
On an endless roll
Endless roll [x 15]



The Doors - People Are Strange 



People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down
When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange
People are strange when you're a stranger
Faces look ugly when you're alone
Women seem wicked when you're unwanted
Streets are uneven when you're down
When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange
Faces come out of the rain
When you're strange
No one remembers your name
When you're strange
When you're strange
When you're strange


The Doors - When The Music's Over



Yeah, c'mon
When the music's over
When the music's over, yeah
When the music's over
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights, yeah
When the music's over
When the music's over
When the music's over
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
For the music is your special friend
Dance on fire as it intends
Music is your only friend
Until the end
Until the end
Until the end
Cancel my subscription to the Resurrection
Send my credentials to the House of Detention
I got some friends inside
The face in the mirror won't stop
The girl in the window won't drop
A feast of friends
"Alive!" she cried
Waitin' for me
Outside!
Before I sink
Into the big sleep
I want to hear
I want to hear
The scream of the butterfly
Come back, baby
Back into my arm
We're gettin' tired of hangin' around
Waitin' around with our heads to the ground
I hear a very gentle sound
Very near yet very far
Very soft, yeah, very clear
Come today, come today
What have they done to the earth
What have they done to our fair sister
Ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her
Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn
And tied her with fences and dragged her down
I hear a very gentle sound
With your ear down to the ground
We want the world and we want it...
We want the world and we want it...
Now
Now
Now!
Persian night, babe
See the light, babe
Save us!
Jesus!
Save us!
So when the music's over
When the music's over, yeah
When the music's over
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
Turn out the lights
Well the music is your special friend
Dance on fire as it intends
Music is your only friend
Until the end
Until the end
Until the end!

Wait, until you take a look inside yourself -

Oh seeker,
A leaf in this garden,
Means more than all leaves
You will find in paradise!
