Lies

I think it’s time, we give it up
And figure out what’s stopping us
From breathing easy, and talking straight
The way is clear if you’re ready now
The volunteer is slowing down
And taking time to save himself

The little cracks they escalated
And before you know it is too late
For making circles and telling lies

You’re moving too fast for me
And I can’t keep up with you
Maybe if you slowed down for me
I could see you’re only telling
Lies, lies, lies
Breaking us down with your
Lies, lies, lies
When will you learn

The little cracks they escalated
And before you know it is too late
For making circles and telling lies

You’re moving too fast for me
And I can’t keep up with you
Maybe if you’d slowed down for me
I could see you’re only telling
Lies, lies, lies
Breaking us down with your
Lies, lies, lies
When will you learn

Passagem da Noite

“É noite. Sinto que é noite
(…)
Sinto que nós somos noite,
que palpitamos no escuro
e em noite nos dissolvemos.
Sinto que é noite no vento,
noite nas águas, na pedra.
E que adianta uma lâmpada?
E que adianta uma voz?
É noite no meu amigo.
É noite no submarino.
É noite na roça grande.
É noite, não é morte, é noite
de sono espesso e sem praia.
Não é dor, nem paz, é noite,
é perfeitamente a noite.

Mas salve, olhar de alegria!
E salve, dia que surge!
(…)
Existir: seja como for.
A fraterna entrega do pão.
Amar: mesmo nas canções.
De novo andar: as distâncias,
as cores, posse das ruas.
Tudo que à noite perdemos
se nos confia outra vez.
Obrigado, coisas fiéis!
Saber que ainda há florestas,
sinos, palavras; que a terra
prossegue seu giro, e o tempo
não murchou; não nos diluímos.
Chupar o gosto do dia!
Clara manhã, obrigado,
o essencial é viver!”

Carlos Drummond de Andrade
(A Rosa do Povo)

da solidão

de desfrutar a solidão,

A heart that’s full up like a landfill
A job that slowly kills you
Bruises that won’t heal

You look so tired and unhappy
Bring down the government
They don’t, they don’t speak for us
I’ll take a quiet life
A handshake of carbon monoxide

No alarms and no surprises

please

O Meio

As coisas estão meio confusas esses dias e eu não tenho me sentido tão bem quanto gostaria. Mas alguém em algum lugar do mundo se preocupou com o meu pequeno desabafo e me enviou essa música que segue, sem saber quem eu era.

“it just take some time, little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride…”


The Middle – Jimmy Eat World

Hey, don’t write yourself off yet
It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
Just try your best, try everything you can
And don’t you worry what they tell themselves when you’re away
It just takes some time
Little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright, alright
Hey, you know they’re all the same
You know you’re doing better on your own, so don’t buy in
Live right now
Yeah, just be yourself
It doesn’t matter if it’s good enough for someone else
It just takes some time
Little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright, alright
It just takes some time
Little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright, alright
Hey, don’t write yourself off yet
It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
Just do your best, do everything you can
And don’t you worry what the bitter hearts are gonna say
It just takes some time
Little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright, alright
It just takes some time
Little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be alright”


Smile

“smile, what’s the use of crying?”
interpretação: Nat King Cole
Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You’ll get by…
If you smile
With your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile if you’ll just…
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you’ll just…
If you smile
With your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you’ll just Smile…
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you’ll just smile…”

Christmas Lights

“When your still waiting for the snow to fall…”
Gosto mais dessa versão seca de voz e piano, mas o clipe não fica atrás.
A versão oficial está aqui.

“Christmas night, another fight
Tears we cried a flood
Got all kinds of poison in
Poison in my blood
I took my feet
To Oxford Street
Trying to right a wrong
Just walk away
Those windows say
But I can’t believe she’s gone
When you’re still waiting for the snow to fall
Doesn’t really feel like Christmas at all
Up above candles on air flicker
Oh they flicker and they float
But I’m up here holding on
To all those chandeliers of hope
Like some drunken Elvis singing
I go singing out of tune
Saying how I always loved you darling
And I always will
Oh when you’re still waiting for the snow to fall
Doesn’t really feel like Christmas at all
Still waiting for the snow to fall
It doesn’t really feel like Christmas at all
Those Christmas lights
Light up the street
Down where the sea and city meet
May all your troubles soon be gone
Oh Christmas lights keep shining on
Those Christmas lights
Light up the street
Maybe they’ll bring her back to me
Then all my troubles will be gone
Oh Christmas lights keep shining on
Ohhhh
Oh Christmas lights
Light up the street
Light up the fireworks in me
May all your troubles soon be gone
Those Christmas lights keep shining on”

Vendedor de Rins

vendedor de rins – violins

É preso aqui feliz por mim que eu te imploro pra esquecer o tombo que eu te fiz cair eu nunca quis te oferecer assim mas é que o preço era bom e é preciso preço pra viver não que seja certo que seja assim mas é a vida que eu herdei Eu sei que não me faz bem mas que seja mal então bem eu sei que não me faz hein. Quando eu quis te buscar alguém chegou pra me levar Eu comecei vendendo rins em hospitais escuros sem saber porquê foi quando eu me surpreendi te oferecendo para o bem de alguém mas é que o preço era bom e é preciso preço pra viver não que seja certo que seja assim mas é a vida que eu herdei Eu sei que não me faz bem mas que seja o mal então bem eu sei que não me faz hein. Quando eu quis me consertar alguém chegou pra me elogiar.”

não sei porque acordei com essa bendita música na cabeça.
