Cryin' To Be Heard

Somebody's cryin' to be heard
And there's also someone who hears every word

Sail across the ocean with your back against the wind
Listening to nothing save the calling of a bird
And when the rain begins to fall, don't you start to curse
It may be just the tears of someone that you never heard

Reflected in the water is a face that you don't know
And isn't it surprising when you findin' out it's your own?
And so you try to find out whether it is friend or foe
And what it is it wants from you and what it wants to know?

Well, you're wrapped up in your little world and no one can get in
You sit and think of everything then, then you wonder where you've been
You put the blame on someone that you've hardly ever known
And then you realize too late the blame was all your own



Don't Be Sad

Don't be sad, I just want to see you get through
All I have, it's yours if you think it helps you
Good or bad, there's no one can really judge you
You just have to come to your own conclusion
There is only one who means more than all to me
And through the lady, in a dream I've learned to live with everyone
Mother, father, all my friends, have seen me have my day
But now I see that there's no need in trying to run, though it's been fun

La casa d'Iren

Ici, les jours sont gris
Gris comme les chemins déserts
D'un pays sans âme et sans soleil

La Casa d'Irène,
On chante et on crie
Y a des gens qui viennent
Et y a des gens qui rient
La Casa d'Irène
On boit du bon vin
La Casa d'Irène
On ne pense plus à rien

Sans toi, que puis-je faire ?
Et comment vivre sans toi ?
Chez nous, la maison n'est que pierres
Et les murs vides me semblent hérissés de morceaux de verre

Chez Irène, il y a une fille qui te ressemble
Quand j'y vais, elle vient vers moi,
Elle me prend la main, elle m'entraîne en silence
Et elle me garde jusqu'au matin.

Sans toi, que puis-je faire ?
Je suis perdu, seul, sans toi
Ici, j'ai peur de rester seul
Seul avec nos souvenirs
Seul avec ma peine
Alors, je vais chez Irène
La Casa d'Irène

L Casa d'Irène
On boit du bon vin
L Casa d'Irène
On ne pense plus à rien

Non so più cosa fare

Non so più cosa fare, senza te cosa c'è
Mi fa schifo anche il mare, e un pochito anche te
Sento che sto precipitando dentro un acquario senza pesci
mentre una radio sta annunciando che laggiù la pace ancora non c'è

Non so più camminare, senza tè o caffè
Mi fa schifo anche nuotare, non so più galleggiare.
Sento che stai precipitando dentro la mia disperazione;
laggiù la pace ancora non c'è

non so più cosa fare, non so più cosa c'è
non so più dove sono, senza te non si sà

Non so più galleggiare, mi fa schifo anche il mare
Sento che stai precipitando (cosa serve )
dentro un acquario senza pesci
(cosa faccio)
mentre una radio sta annunciando
che laggiù la pace ancora non c'è

Non so più cosa fare, non so più cosa c'è
Non so più dove sono, senza te non si sa
Non so più galleggiare, mi fa schifo anche il mare

Sento che stai precipitando (cosa serve )
dentro un acquario senza pesci (cosa faccio)
mentre una radio sta annunciando
che laggiù la pace ancora non c'è

Non so più cosa fare, non so più cosa c'è

Jersey Thursday

In the tiny piece of colored glass my love was born
And reds and golds and yellows were the colors in the dawn
Night brought on its purple cloak of velvet to the sky
And the girls go willing spinning on Jersey Thursday

Story

Universal Soldier by Buffy-Sainte Marie
changed the lyrics a bit to make it more relevant to today's society

He's five foot-two, and he's six feet-four
He fights with missiles and with spears
He's all of thirty one, and he's only seventeen
Been a soldier for a thousand years

He's a Christian, a Hindu, an Atheist, a Jain,
A Buddhist, and a Muslim, and a Jew
And he knows he shouldn't kill
And he knows he always will
Kill you for me, my friend, and me for you

And he's fighting for Palestine
He's fighting for Israel
He's fighting for the USA
And he's fighting for the Russians
And he's fighting for Iraq
And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way

And he's fighting for Democracy
He's fighting for his soil
He says: "It's for the peace of all"
He's the one who must decide who's to live and who's to die
And he never sees the writing on the wall

But without him how would Hitler have condemned him at Dachau?
Without him Caesar would have stood alone
He's the one who gives his body as a weapon of the war
And without him all this killing can't go on

He's the universal soldier
And he is really is to blame
His orders come from far away no more
They come from here and there, and you and me
And brother, can't you see
This is not the way we put an end to war



In The Morning

In the morning
On your journey to the sea
In the mountains
Your shadows beside me

You crossed the pasture land
And threw your wedding band
Into the great deep
Where you'd rest to sleep

My dear

In the oceans where you lay
Where you've made your grave
They'll find you on the shore
Rosy no more

In the morning
On your journey to the sea

You crossed the pasture land
And threw your wedding band
Swallowing the seed
Of truth



I Met Up With The King

I met up with the king
He confessed his body was burning
I met up with the king
His body had begun to rot
And he said don't think less of me
I'm still the same man I used to be

But no one believed him
No one believed him

I once knew a pretty girl
And she was in love with the world
And she loved a young man
Who loved her body but never saw her mind
He took everything she had kept
And then he took everything else that was left

But no one believed her
No one believed her

I feel just like the king
As I fall on the muddy ground
I feel just like you gal
There's people thinking
They know something now
Well I don't know anything at all
And we mean nothing to history
Well thank God

So tell me do you believe me?
Do you believe me?
I bet you don't




Our Own Pretty Ways

Let's not spill the truth
It's easier being alone
You're a shadow of the old
And I want something new

You've quit dreaming again
I can see it now clear
But I'll wake up every morning
With the big black and the blue

Let's take this for what it is
You tell me you have changed
Well we all change in our own ways
In our own pretty ways

It all comes down to this
I'm an ocean, you're the rain
The ice is melting fast
But you're not pulling down the brakes

You'll start drinking again
I can see it now clear
How you'll wake up every morning
With a new bird in your cage

Even the most peaceful town
Once was a battle ground
Well we all change in our own ways
In our own pretty ways

Even in our police state
Someone dares to demonstrate
Well we fight in our own ways
But nothing ever change




Tangerine

Another buisness trip
Another reason to stay away
You're coming home on monday, smelling Tangerine

They say that I should leave you
Yeah, go and find someone new
Who doesn't love a girl that smells like Tangerine

I'm not going to beg just say please, please, please
Be good to me

This happens to all of us
Apparently I'm not good enough
I can't make you laugh like Tangerine

And you say; "but I'm still here,
that proves that I love you dear"
Late at night you come home smelling Tangerine



Ghost Town

All of these ghost towns I keep travelling through
All of these traffic signs and lonesome bars blind the view
I swear I can be better
I could be more to you
But there are things that line my path
That I just had to do

If you've got visions of the past
Let them follow you down
They'll come back to you some day
And I found myself attached to this railroad track
But I'll come back to you some day
To you
To you
To you
Some day

And I remember how you told me all you wanted to do
That dream of Paris in the morning or a New York window view
I can see it now you're married and your wife is with a child
And you're all laughing in the garden and I'm lost somewhere in your mind

Maybe I should just turn around
Walk away
For no matter how much I really do want to stay
You know I can when it's too late



Stay Gold

The sun shone high those few summer days
Left us in a soft, wide-eyed haze
It shone like gold
It shone like gold

But just as the moon it shines straight
So dawn goes down today
No gold can stay
No gold can stay

What if our hard work ends in despair?
What if the road won't take me there?
Oh, I wish, for once, we could stay gold

What if to love and be loved's not enough?
What if I fall and can't bear to get up?
Oh, I wish, for once, we could stay gold
We could stay gold

We're on our way through rugged land
Top of that mountain we wanted to stand
With hearts of gold
With hearts of gold

But there is only forward, no other way
Tomorrow was your hope at the end of the day
And gold turns gray
And gold turns gray

All of my dreams, they fall and form a bridge
Of memories where I can get back
All of my dreams, they fall and form a bridge
Of memories where I can't get back to you

Could stay gold
Stay gold




Waltz For Richard

On our last trip to the coast
We watched the boats sail the sea
"How effortlessly they float"
You turned and said to me

And sedately I sat there
In my quiet mist of rage
How I wanted to tell you
But I was hushed by my shame

So when the waves come rolling in
Then I won't turn the tide
And in the line of fire
You'll set me aside
So go on Richard let go

And I can still remember
The laughter in a stranger's face
And the way you would tell me
To slow down my pace

See no living is that easy
No living is that fair
Of course I was going to lose you
Were you ever even there?




Hard Believer

So you ask for my opinion well what is there to say
To be honest and just foolish won’t make you want to stay
You’ve got to go on and get moving and I can’t do that for you
Got so many plans and so much you want to do

Love is tough, time is rough
On me

Well I see you’ve got your bible your delusion imagery
Well I don’t need your eternity or your meaning to feel free
I just live because I love to and that’s enough you see
So don’t come preach about morality that’s just human sense to me

And it’s one life and it’s this life and it’s beautiful





Wolf mother, where you been?
You look so worn, so thin
You're a taker, devil's maker
Let me hear you sing, hey ya hey ya

Wolf father, at the door
You don't smile anymore
You're a drifter, shapeshifter
Let me see you run, hey ya hey ya

Holy light, oh, burn the night, oh keep the spirits strong
Watch it grow, child of wolf
Keep holdin' on

When I run through the deep dark forest long after this begun
Where the sun would set, trees were dead and the rivers were none
And I hope for a trace to lead me back home from this place
But there was no sound, there was only me and my disgrace

Hey, Hey-Hey, Hey, Hey
Hey, Hey-Hey, Hey, Hey
Hey, Hey-Hey, Hey, Hey
Hey, Hey-Hey, Hey, Ya

Wolf mother, where you been?
You look so worn, so thin
You're a taken, devil's maker
Let me hear you say, hey ya hey ya

Wolf father, at the door
You don't smile anymore
You're a drifter, shapeshifter
Let me see you run, hey ya hey ya

Wayward winds, the voice that sings of a forgotten land
See it fall, child of wolf
Lend a mending hand



My Silver Lining

I don't want to wait anymore I'm tired of looking for answers
Take me some place where there's music and there's laughter
I don't know if I'm scared of dying but I'm scared of living too fast, too slow
Regret, remorse, hold on, oh no I've got to go
There’s no starting over, no new beginnings, time races on
And you've just gotta keep on keeping on
Gotta keep on going, looking straight out on the road
Can't worry 'bout what's behind you or what's coming for you further up the road
I try not to hold on to what is gone, I try to do right what is wrong
I try to keep on keeping on
Yeah I just keep on keeping on

I hear a voice calling
Calling out for me
These shackles I've made in an attempt to be free
Be it for reason, be it for love
I won't take the easy road

I've woken up in a hotel room, my worries as big as the moon
Having no idea who or what or where I am
Something good comes with the bad
A song's never just sad
There's hope, there's a silver lining
Show me my silver lining

I hear a voice calling
Calling out for me
These shackles I've made in an attempt to be free
Be it for reason, be it for love
I won't take the easy road

I won't take the easy road
The easy road, the easy road

Show me my silver lining, I try to keep on keeping on





Heavy Storm

I wish I could believe in something bigger
More than these trees, these winds, these oceans
I wish I could believe what they tell me

I saw, I saw, I saw my brother pack his bags and leave
We made our goodbyes and now he is settled down in the city
Where he doesn't have to be himself

He used to play an un-tuned guitar
While he sang about me and he sung about the stars
I used to dream about another time
And now it's all clear that's the only time I wish would come back

I wish I could hold on a little longer
Still my worried stomach and calm my hunger
I wish I could believe what they taught me

I saw, I saw, I saw, I saw an old photograph
And the picture that appeared, well it took me back to the time
When she was around

She used to play that old mandolin
And the moon and the sea invited her in
I wish that I had told her by then
But she knew deep down that she only wished that time would come back

A new day awaits me
I could be gone today
A new day awaits me
We could be here to stay

We used to wait for our heavy storms
To take us away while something new would form
I wish that I could have known by then
We all know now that we're never getting back to those times



Emmylou

Oh the bitter winds are coming in
And I'm already missing the summer
Stockholm's cold but I've been told
I was born to endure this kind of weather
When it's you I find like a ghost in my mind
I am defeated and I gladly wear the crown

I'll be your Emmylou and I'll be your June
If you'll be my Gram and my Johnny too
No, I'm not asking much of you
Just sing little darling, sing with me

Now so much I know that things just don't grow
If you don't blessed them with your patience
And I've been there before I held up the door
For every stranger with a promise

But I'm holding back, that's the strength that I lack
Every morning keeps returning at my window
And it brings me to you and I won't just pass through
But I'm not asking for a storm

And yes I might have lied to you
You wouldn't benefit from knowing of the truth
I was frightened but I held fast
I need you now at long last


Пляска

Тепел нож, жон лепет
Ино хохотали лат охохони
Ум дев лил ведьму
Кат медведь, как дев дем? — так!
Дивчины нежен ниц вид
И невени синеве ни
А ведомо, дева,
Манила малинам
Наг рук курган
Ахаха!
Ухи нежь жениху
Черевик иве речь:
Жениху запрет сок — костер пазухи неж!
Дур труд
А уа уа — а уа уа!
Мохи нежь, ахаха, женихом
Лети чудес сед учитель
Ни заревом нежен мове Разин
Мот сил нежен листом
Тополя лопоть
И ляли
Топот
Рублем смел бурь
Или бури рубили
Рубли сил бурь?
Хата та ли? лата тах!
Хата птах!
Шиш о шиш,
Меч о меч,
Кол о кол,
Воны сынов,
А кар драка!
А вера зарева
Манит детинам
Улиц илу
Вод вдов
Дорог город
Дар рад,
Ну, червон снов речун
Мак неженкам
Манит синь истинам
И раз зари…
Мор берест серебром
Мове разгула калуг заревом
Летел
Гул резок, озер луг
Топот и топот
Иду — дуди
Наг рук курган
Нежи жен
Чересу — дусе речь!
Мясу дусям
Иль бури рубли,
Вы взвились, осилив взыв,
Овод деньгами дыма гнедово,
В оспе псов?
Молодухи худолом!
Лапоть топал
У себя бесу
Може бар грабежом
Отчина ничто?
Покой и окоп
И червоны сынов речи?
И гашу шаги
Инде седни
О лесе весело
Ног гон
Вонзал босо соблазнов
Не сосуд жемчугом летел могуч между сосен,
А цаца
По топоту то потоп
Пот и топ
Вера зарев,
Я у кукуя
Лебедем, в меде бел
Гори пирог
Манил блинам
Мана темь сметанам
Ворожба обжоров
И гик — киги
Летел
В око рока окороков
Кожур кружок,
Ртом смотр,
Мори пиром
Чад удач
Летел
Хи-ха, ха-хи
Рог гор,
Рави вар
Вари рав
Это варенец цена равоте
