Modern Nature – Sondre Lerche

The moment has come to face the truth
I’m wide awake, and so are you
Do you have a clue what this is? (I don’t know)
Are you everything that I miss? (I don’t hope so)
We’ll just have to wait and see (Wait, and see)
If things go right we’re meant to be

The surface is gone, we scratched it off
We made some plans, and let them go
Do you have the slightest idea (No, I don’t)
Why the world is bright with you here? (Oh, is that so?)
Stay a while and wait and see (wait, and see)
If things go right we’re meant to be

Oh, what a world this life would be
Forget all your technicolor dreams
Forget modern nature
This is how it´s meant to be

The time is here for being straight
It´s not too early and never too late
People say I should watch my pace (What do they know?)
“Think how you spend all your days” (They all say so)
They´ll just have to wait and see (Wait, and see)
If things go right they´ll have to agree

Oh, what a world this life would be
Forget all your technicolor dreams
Forget modern nature
This is how it´s meant to be

Do you have the slightest idea (No, I don’t)
Why the world is bright with you here? (Oh, is that so?)
Stay a while and wait and see (wait, and see)
If things go right we’re meant to be

Oh, what a world this life would be
Forget all your technicolor dreams
Forget modern nature
This is how it´s meant to be

Forget modern nature
This is how it´s meant to be

Anda comigo ver os aviões

somethings2keep:

Anda comigo ver os aviões levantar voo
A rasgar as nuvens
Rasgar o céu

Anda comigo ao porto de leixões ver os navios
A levantar ferro
A rasgar o mar

Um dia eu ganho a lotaria
Ou faço uma magia
(mas que eu morra aqui)
Mulher tu sabes o quanto eu te amo,
O quanto eu gosto de ti
E que eu morra aqui
Se um dia eu não te levo à América
Nem que eu leve a América até ti

Anda comigo ver os automóveis à avenida
A rasgar as curvas
A queimar pneus

Um dia vamos ver os foguetões levantar voo
A rasgar as núvens
A rasgar o céu…

Um dia eu ganho o totobola
Ou pego na pistola
Mas que eu morra aqui
Mulher tu sabes o quanto eu te amo
O quanto eu gosto de ti
E que eu morra aqui
Se um dia eu não te levo à lua
Nem que eu roube a lua,
Só para ti
Um dia eu vou jogar a bola
Ou vendo esta viola
Nem que eu morra que aqui
Mulher tu sabes o quanto eu te amo
O quanto eu gosto de ti
E que eu morra aqui
Se um dia eu não te levo à América
Nem que eu leve a América até ti

Jens Lekman – You Are the Light (by which I travel into this and that)

Yeah I got busted
so I used my one phone call to dedicate a song to you on the radio

Yeah I got busted.
In custody I imagined our melody being played on a grand piano

I saw your face in front of me. It was perfect clarity.
I saw a light in the end of the tunnel

And it was you ‘cause you are the light by which I travel into this and that
you are the light, you are the light by which I travel into this and that

Yeah I got busted.
I painted a dirty word on your old man’s Mercedes Benz ’cause you told me to do it

Yeah I got busted
but soon they released me cause the cops were sad and they didn’t know how to prove it

I saw your face in front of me. It was perfect clarity
I saw a light in the end of the tunnel

And it was you ’cause you are the light by which I travel into this and that
you are the light, you are the light by which I travel into this and that

It’s all so obvious, so obvious
Why would anyone need a map or a compass?
It’s so beautiful to be guided by you

‘Cause you are the light, you are the light by which I travel into this and that
You are the light, you are the light by which I travel into this and that

Sérgio Godinho: A noite passada

A noite passada acordei com o teu beijo
descias o Douro e eu fui esperar-te ao Tejo
vinhas numa barca que não vi passar
corri pela margem até à beira do mar
até que te vi num castelo de areia
cantavas “sou gaivota e fui sereia”
ri-me de ti “então porque não voas?”
e então tu olhaste
depois sorriste
abriste a janela e voaste

A noite passada fui passear no mar
a viola irmã cuidou de me arrastar
chegado ao mar alto abriu-se em dois o mundo
olhei para baixo dormias lá no fundo
faltou-me o pé senti que me afundava
por entre as algas teu cabelo boiava
a lua cheia escureceu nas águas
e então falámos
e então dissemos
aqui vivemos muitos anos

A noite passada um paredão ruiu
pela fresta aberta o meu peito fugiu
estavas do outro lado a tricotar janelas
vias-me em segredo ao debruçar-te nelas
cheguei-me a ti disse baixinho “olá”,
toquei-te no ombro e a marca ficou lá
o sol inteiro caiu entre os montes
e então olhaste
depois sorriste
disseste “ainda bem que voltaste”

Ray LaMontagne – Let it be me

There may come a time
A time in everyone’s life
Where nothing seems to go your way
Where nothing seems to turn out right

There may come a time
You just can’t seem to find your way
For every door you open
Seems like they get slammed in your face

That’s when you need someone
Someone that you can call
And when all your faith is gone
Feels like you can’t go on

Let it be me, let it be me
If it’s a friend that you need
Let it be me, let it be me

Feels like your always coming up last
Pockets full of nothin’ and you got no cash
No matter where you turn, you ain’t got no place to stand
Reach out for something and they slap your hand

Now I remember all too well
Just how it feels to be all alone
You feel like you’d give anything
For just a little place you can call your own

That’s when you need someone
Someone that you can call
And when all your faith is gone
Feels like you can’t go on

Let it be me, let it be me
If it’s a friend you need
Let it be me, let it be me

Let it be me, let it be me
If it’s a friend you need
Let it be me, let it be me
Let it be me
