I can never be

Maverick Sabre – « I Can Never Be »

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah,
Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

And you know I can never be,
What you want me to be,
And you know that you’ll never make me change
And you know that the manual isn’t inside of me
So, I might as well just walk out into the rain.

I tried so many times to be where you wanted,
So much better than before,
And I tried to say them things that you wanted to hear,
But it never, never ever worked…no.

And you know I can never be,
What you want me to be,
And you know that you’ll never make me change
And you know that the manual isn’t inside of me
So, I might as well just walk out into the rain.

I can picture you lying beside me,
Still remember kissing your face and watching you smile,
I can never be something I’m not and you know it
But I wish I could hold your hand and tell you it’s alright.

But it’s all so hard not to speak to you,
Cause I want to hear your voice again.
And it’s all so hard not to speak to you,
Cause i want to hear your voice again.

And you know I can never be,
What you want me to be,
And you know that you’ll never make me change
And you know that the manual isn’t inside of me
So, I might as well just walk out into the rain.

And you know I can never be,
What you want me to be,
And you know that I’ll never be changed
Cause the manual isn’t inside of me
So I might as well just walk out into the rain.

Eh, eh, eh…
No no no no

I can never…never…be what you want me to be,
Cause the manual isn’t inside of me…

 

Who’s gonna save my soul

Gnarls Barkley – Who’s gonna save my soul

Got some bad news this morning
Which in turn made my day
When there’s someone spoke I listened
All of a sudden has less and less to say
Ohh, how could this be?
All this time I’ve lived vicariously

Who’s gonna save my soul now?
Who’s gonna save my soul now?
How will my story ever be told now?
How will my story be told now?

Made me feel like somebody
Like somebody else
Although he was imitated often
Felt like I was being myself
Is it a shame that someone else’s song
Was totally and completely depended on?

Who’s gonna save my soul now?
Who’s gonna save my soul now?
I wonder if I’ll live to grow old now
Getting high ’cause I feel so alone now

And maybe it’s a little selfish
All I have is the memory
Did I never stop to wonder
Was it possible you were hurting worse than me?
Still my hunger turns to greed
‘Cause what about what I need?

And ohh
Who’s gonna save my soul now?
Who’s gonna save my soul now?
Ohh, I know I’m out of control now
Tired enough to lay my own soul down

Made of stone

Matt Corby – Made of stone

See I left my mothers heart
See I left my fathers home
And I fell into a well of hope

I’m carrying my heart but it’s made of stone
I’m carrying my heart but my heart is made of stone

See I left my mothers heart
See I left my fathers home
And I fell into a well of hope

I’m carrying my heart but it’s made of stone
I’m carrying my heart but my heart is made of stone
I’m carrying my heart but it’s made of stone
oh I’m carrying my heart but my heart is made of stone

Oooh ohhwooahh oooooah aoowoahh
ooooohhh wooaahh ooooooohh oooooaahhh………

La femme idéale ? / The ideal woman ?

Arthur H – La femme idéale

Femme à barbe, femme hibou
Homme lézard, homme caoutchou
Femme colosse, femme sans tête
Homme électrique, homme squelette

Mais toi
La femme idéale
Tu survoles les alentours Comme le vautour
De l’amour
Ô toi
La femme idéale
Tu dégoupilles des grenades
Que tu lances au hasard

Liliputien, liliputienne
Homme chien, femme chienne
Femme canon, homme obus
Homme tatoué, femme panthère

Mais toi
La femme idéale
Tu survoles les alentours Comme le vautour
De l’amour
Ô toi
La femme idéale
Avec toi le paradis
A rendez-vous à minuit

Les chats
Au bout de tes dix doigts
Grimpent
Le long du moi
Ces chats-là
Étranglent
La mélancolie
Comme une vulgaire souris

Mais toi
La femme idéale
Tu survoles les alentours Comme le vautour
De l’amour
Ô toi
La femme idéale
Avec toi le paradis
A rendez-vous à minuit

Tu dégoupilles des grenades
Que tu lances au hasard
Ô toi
La femme idéale

à Moonath, un autre type de Wonder woman ! 😉

Hommage à Lou Reed… / Tribute to Lou Reed…

The bed

This is the place where she lay her head
when she went to bed at night
And this is the place our children were conceived
candles lit the room brightly at night

And this is the place where she cut her wrists
that odd and fateful night
And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling
And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling

This is the place where we used to live
I paid for it with love and blood
And these are the boxes that she kept on the shelf
Filled with her poetry and stuff

And this is the room where she took the razor
and cut her wrists that strange and fateful night
And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling
And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling

I never would have started if I’d known
that it’s end this way
But funny thing, I’m not at all sad
that it stopped this way

This is the place where she lay her head
when she went to bed at night
And this is the place our children were conceived
candles lit the room brightly at night

And this is the place where she cut her wrists
That odd and fateful night
And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling
And I said, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, what a feeling

Sad song

Staring at my picture book
she looks like Mary, Queen of Scots
She seemed very regal to me
just goes to show how wrong you can be

I’m gonna stop wastin’ my time
Somebody else would have broken both of her arms

Sad song, sad song
Sad song, sad song

My castle, kids and home
I thought she was Mary, Queen of Scots
I tried so very hard
shows just how wrong you can be

I’m gonna stop wasting time
Somebody else would have broken both of her arms

Sad song, sad song
Sad song, sad song
Sad song, sad song
Sad song, sad song
Sad song, sad song
Sad song, sad song

Bashung – Danse d’ici

Bashung – Danse d’ici

J’ai beau me creuser
M’inoculer du sucre candi
Du sérum physiologique
J’ai mauvaise mine
Les danses d’ici
Se différencient
Des danses du ventre
Mouillent la redingote
Parfois la chemise
Je peux pas m’empêcher
De m’empêtrer
Dans ton chandail

Aller au charbon
Aller aux ouailles
Chercher la houille

J’ai beau invoquer
Interroger mes cellules grises
Sophistiquer l’attirail
Les danses d’ici
Versent des litanies
Emblèmes problèmes
De camélias qui m’oxydent
Il manque un wagon
Un boute-en-train
Des victuailles

Aller au charbon
Aller aux ouailles
Chercher la houille
Et pour finir
Recommencer
Se lever tôt
Ne rien retenir

Tout ceic n’est
Pas pour me déplaire
C’est de l’orangeade
Qui perle à mon front
Les yeux me piquent
Et je pars me frotter l’abdomen
Aux Comores

Aller au charbon
Aller aux ouailles
Chercher la houille
Et pour finir
Recommencer
Se lever tôt
Ne rien retenir

Sufjan Stevens – Chicago (acoustic)

Sufjan Stevens – Chicago

I fell in love again
All things go, all things go
Drove to Chicago
All things know, all things know
We sold our clothes to the state
I don’t mind, I don’t mind
I made a lot of mistakes
In my mind, in my mind

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset
All things know, all things know
You had to find it
All things go, all things go

I drove to New York
In a van with my friend
We slept in parking lots
I don’t mind, I don’t mind
I was in love with the place
In my mind, in my mind
I made a lot of mistakes
In my mind, in my mind

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset
All things know, all things know
You had to find it
All things go, all things go

If I was crying
In the van with my friend
It was for freedom
From myself and from the land
I made a lot of mistakes
I made a lot of mistakes
I made a lot of mistakes
I made a lot of mistakes

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset
All things know, all things know
You had to find it
All things go, all things go

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset (I made a lot of mistakes)
All things know, all things know (I made a lot of mistakes)
You had to find it (I made a lot of mistakes)
All things go, all things go (I made a lot of mistakes)

Stealing sheep – Shut eye

Stealing sheep – Shut eye

You should’ve got a better bed
Better for your head
Better heads need shut eye

You should’ve got a better bed
Better for your head
Better heads need shut eye
You should’ve got out of the red
In the red you’re better off dead
Deader than the red dead sea
Promise it to me
Promise me the sea

You should’ve got a better bed
Better for your head
Better heads need shut eye
You should’ve got out of the red
In the red you’re better off dead
Deader than the red dead sea
Promise it to me
Promise me the sea

People all the people with big bellies banging bigger drums
They beat down on you they beat the pulse into your shoes
Shoes that are made for walking you to lands and other seas
See those seas of see those seas that you’ve seen on the big screen

You should’ve got a better bed
Better for your head
Better heads need shut eye
You should’ve got out of the red
In the red you’re better off dead
Deader than the red dead sea
Promise it to me
Promise me the sea

Sad hello’s and mad high lows
Now i know not nobody knows
Sad hello’s and mad high lows
Now i know not nobody knows
Where do we go?
Oh where do we go?

People all the people with big bellies banging bigger drums
They beat down on you they beat the pulse into your shoes
Shoes that are made for walking you to lands and other seas
See those seas of see those seas that you’ve seen on the big screen

People all the people with big bellies banging bigger drums
They beat down on you they beat the pulse into your shoes
Shoes that are made for walking you to lands and other seas
See those seas of see those seas that you’ve seen on the big screen

Higher love

James Vincent McMorrow – Higher Love (Steve Winwood cover)

Think about it, there must be higher love
Down in the heart and in the stars above,
Without it, life is wasted time.
Look inside your heart, I’ll look inside mine

Things look so bad everywhere
In this whole world, what’s fair?
We walk blind and we try to see
Falling behind in what could be.

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love,
Bring me a higher love
Where’s this higher love, I’ve been thinking of?

Worlds are turning and we’re just hanging on
Facing our fear, standing out there alone
Oh A yearning, and it’s real for me
There must be someone who’s feeling for me
Things look so bad everywhere

In this whole world, what’s fair?
We walk blind and we try to see
Falling behind in what could be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love,
Bring me a higher love
Where’s this higher love, I’ve been thinking of?

I will wait for it, I’m not too late for it
Until then, I’ll sing my song
To cheer the night along

I could light the night up with my soul on fire
I could make the sun shine from pure desire
Let me feel the love come over me
Let me feel how strong it can be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love, oh
Bring me a higher love
I could rise above for this higher love.

Plain gold ring

Nina Simone – Plain gold ring

Plain gold ring on his finger he wore
It was where everyone could see
He loved somebody, but it wasn’t me

On his hand was a plain golden ring
On his hand was a plain golden ring

Plain gold ring had a story to tell
It was one that I knew very well
In my heart it will never be spring
Long as he wears a plain golden ring

Long as he wears a plain golden ring
Long as he wears a plain golden ring
Long as he wears a plain golden ring

When nighttime comes callin’ on me
I know, why I will never be free
I can’t stop these teardrops of mine
So I’m gonna love him till the end of time

Plain gold ring has but one thing to say
I’ll remember till my dyin’ day
In my heart it will never be spring
In my heart it will never be spring

Long as he wears a plain golden ring
Long as he wears a plain golden ring
Long as he wears a plain golden ring

Plain gold ring on his finger he wore
Plain gold ring on his finger he wore
Plain gold ring on his finger he wore
Plain gold ring on his finger he wore
