dazed and confused

unstable and depressed

your blues are the bluest blues

oh, the night's so young
it's been so long since i had any fun
i don't know what's wrong
i just wanna play another song

oú est tu?

Segui-te na estrada, cantei-te pra nada, fiz montes e vales em busca de ti. Encontrei-me às portas da morte, de tanto vergar, de tanto insistir... e num mar mil virgens à espera, gritaram o meu nome e eu não respondi. Sonhei que era cego, num bico de um prego e quando acordei fui chorar escondido. Quem for rei virá num cruzeiro, se eu quis ser rei foi pra sê-lo contigo. Quando o sol girar e o céu afundar, ouvirás finalmente o que eu digo. Dei o teu retrato ao genro de um sapo, errei comprimidos para adormecer, ah e rezei à santa fortuna, à deusa das tréguas, do meu querer.. só que o vento ouviu no deserto, que alguém andava perto e não eras tu..

ashes in winter light

he was born in spring, but I was born too late, blame it on a simple twist of fate

It's true, my life has been full of regrets, baby
For me, it's been the only way it could be

And I'd drag you off to bed, sleepyhead
As the sounds of the school yard drifted through Our dreams
It's strange going back there
Every one's gone
It's natural
People move out
People pass on

And when you're all alone, pretty baby
I'll meet you in the deep
Til you're fast asleep
And when the cities burning, little baby
I'll climb to your window,
And carry you away

It's true my life has been full of regrets, baby
Sometimes I wonder if you'd take it all back
You're still the only one I can talk to

diamonds and rust

Well, I'll be damned
Here comes your ghost again
But that's not unusual
It's just that the moon is full
And you happened to call
And here I sit
Hand on the telephone
Hearing a voice I'd known
A couple of light years ago
Heading straight for a fall

We both know what memories can bring

Now you're telling me you're not nostalgic
Then give me another word for it
You who are so good with words
And at keeping things vague
'Cause I need some of that vagueness now
It's all come back too clearly
Yes, I once loved you dearly
And if you're offering me diamonds and rust
I've already paid

i remember what came before...

I wanted to think there was endless love
Until I saw the light dim in your eyes
In the dead of the night I found out
Sometimes there's love that won't survive

We were full of the stuff that every dream rested
As if floating on a lumpy pillow sky
Caught up in the whole illusion
That dreams never pass us by

such a beautiful disease..

oh crown of light

you kiss my lips, and then you're gone, I’m back on Boogie Street

oh darkened one

of life?

Youve got to laugh a little, cry a little,
Until the clouds roll by a little.
Thats the story of, thats the glory of love.

let the wind in

i'm gonna lay my head
on that lonesome railroad line
and let the 2:19 ease my troubled mind

after you've gone

this town never gave me much back. just rumors and a whispering attack. this town is not my friend. never mind the loose ends. take me with you when you go now. don't leave me alone


quero criar. quero ser. quero viver.
estagnação. deixo ir. quero morrer.

quinta-feira, 3 de dezembro de 2009

and that is all

I pulled into Nazareth, I was feelin' about half past dead;
I just need some place where I can lay my head.
"Hey, mister, can you tell me where a man might find a bed?"
He just grinned and shook my hand, and "No!", was all he said...

time to drive

Let's swim to the moon, uh huh
Let's climb through the tide
Penetrate the evening
That the city sleeps to hide

And the seasons they go 'round and 'round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round..

In travel, there are traps
When I'm writing in the back
Beneath the rain, between the maps
My diary bears this out but memory has it wrong
I loved you when you loved me and then we were done

There's a silence on the railway
There's a bad curse on the land
And this season writes a rainstorm like a poem in the sand
You told me I depressed you, that I withered in your hand
And that sentence cut my loveline when you left me as you planned

In travel, there are traps when I'm writing in the back
Beneath the rain, between the maps
My diary bears this out but memory has it wrong
I loved you when you loved me and then we were gone
In travel, there are traps when I'm writing in the back

time has told me

It in a bright red sky in the heat of an evening

She said her dreams were too far to be thought of

Her scars too wide to heal

She said she couldn’t come to the garden see a blind man kneel

She sailed away to a blue horizon

In floating thoughts she’d sway

But she lost her grin at the tip of life’s fingers

Went home and worshiped the moon

i knew these people

Que lejos estoy del suelo donde he nacido!
inmensa nostalgia invade mi pensamiento;
y al ver me tan solo y triste qual hoja al viento,
quisiera llorar, quisiera morir de sentimiento.

Oh tierra del sol!, suspiro por verte
ahora que lejos yo vivo sin luz, sin amor;
y al verme tan solo y triste cual hoja al viento,
quisiera llorar, quisiera morir de sentimiento.

eu aqui

"Que faço eu aqui? Eis a pergunta que continuo a repetir-me, quando me sinto só e perdida como em qualquer outro lugar, quando cedem as raízes que não tenho, quando me vem a vontade de voltar não sei onde nem a quem."

you packed

This is a mean old world, try and live it by yourself.
Sometimes I wonder why can your love be so cold?
I guess you don't love me, gonna pack my things and go.

sunday morning, praise the dawning
it's just a restless feeling by my side
early dawning, sunday morning
it's all the streets you crossed, not so long ago

Some things are just pictures
They're scenes before your eyes
And don't look now... I'm right behind you.

many years ago

I was born to love no one
No one to love me
Only the wind in the long green grass
The frost in a broken tree.

I was made to love magic
All its wonder to know
But you all lost that magic
Many many years ago.

I was born to use my eyes
Dream with the sun and the skies
To float away in a lifelong song
In the mist where melody flies.

I was made to love magic...

I was born to sail away
Into a land of forever
Not to be tied to an old stone grave
In your land of never.

one is the loneliest

there goes another one.

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
Two can be as bad as one
It's the loneliest number since the number one

"No" is the saddest experience you'll ever know
Yes, it's the saddest experience you'll ever know
Because one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever know

u're lost little girl

I think that you know what to do
Impossible? Yes, but it's true
I think that you know what to do,
I'm sure that you know what to do.

you are on my mind

Cause no bottle of pills
Could ever kill this pain

Go bring me whiskey, baby
Go bring me gin

When I'm not drinking, baby

já foi verão

Shake dreams from your hair
my pretty child, my sweet one.
Choose the day and choose the sign of your day
the day's divinity
First thing you see.

A vast radiant beach and cooled jeweled moon
Couples naked race down by it's quiet side
And we laugh like soft, mad children
Smug in the wooly cotton brains of infancy
The music and voices are all around us.

Ilha de Tavira

into my arms

So keep your candlew burning
And make her journey bright and pure
That she will keep returning
Always and evermore

for i am

the wind circles among the trees
and it bangs about the new-made leaves
for it is breathless without you

outra como outra

Come along Fool,
A direct hit of the senses you are disconnected
It’s not that it’s bad…it’s not that it’s death
It’s just that it is on the tip of your tongue,
and you're so silent…

I'm growing old and I wanna go home
I'm growing old and I don't wanna know
I'm growing old and I wanna go home.

A black eyed dog he called for more.

John Lilly, the guy who says he can talk to dolphins, said he was in an aquarium and he was talking to a big whale who was swimming around and around in his tank. And the whale kept asking him questions telepathically. And one of the questions the whale kept asking was: do all oceans have walls?
