Quote from: "WalkAbout"
In awe and on my knees before this song....

Je suis malade by Lara Fabian

Je ne rêve plus je ne fume plus
Je n'ai même plus d'histoire
Je suis sale sans toi
Je suis laide sans toi
Je suis comme un orphelin dans un dortoir

Je n'ai plus envie de vivre dans ma vie
Ma vie cesse quand tu pars
Je n'ais plus de vie et même mon lit
Ce transforme en quai de gare
Quand tu t'en vas

Je suis malade
Complètement malade
Comme quand ma mère sortait le soir
Et qu'elle me laissait seul avec mon désespoir

Je suis malade parfaitement malade
T'arrive on ne sait jamais quand
Tu repars on ne sait jamais où
Et ça va faire bientôt deux ans
Que tu t'en fous

Comme à un rocher
Comme à un péché
Je suis accroché à toi
Je suis fatigué je suis épuisé
De faire semblant d'être heureuse quand ils sont là

Je bois toutes les nuits
Mais tous les whiskies
Pour moi on le même goût
Et tous les bateaux portent ton drapeau
Je ne sais plus où aller tu es partout

Je suis malade
Complètement malade
Je verse mon sang dans ton corps
Et je suis comme un oiseau mort quand toi tu dors

Je suis malade
Parfaitement malade
Tu m'as privé de tous mes chants
Tu m'as vidé de tous mes mots
Pourtant moi j'avais du talent avant ta peau

Cet amour me tue
Si ça continue je crèverai seul avec moi
Près de ma radio comme un gosse idiot
Écoutant ma propre voix qui chantera

Je suis malade
Complètement malade
Comme quand ma mère sortait le soir
Et qu'elle me laissait seul avec mon désespoir

Je suis malade
C’est ça je suis malade
Tu m'as privé de tous mes chants
Tu m'as vidé de tous mes mots
Et j'ai le coeur complètement malade
Cerné de barricades
T'entends je suis malade


Ninaaaaaa :D :D I love Lara's version of it ^^ and indeed a great song :) *gone to listen to it right now, I wanted some Lara tonight precisely ^^*

Oswald Henke/Goethes Erben - Nur ein Narr
(I know he's a musician - but these lyrics...)

Genau betrachten;
nicht blind stolpern,
die Zeit betrügen.

Unbegreiflich,
unsere Existenz -
deren Bedeutung...

Nicht Erinnerungen kaufen;
Die Unendlichkeit wäre fast erreicht -
doch zu welchem Preis?
Die Neugier,
der Entdeckertrieb;
Fleisch und Geist -
egal ob fremd ob Eigentum,
nur eins - genießen;
die nächste Generation
mit Eigenfleisch bereichern.

Doch...warum entdecken,
wenn Manipulieren vor dem Lernen käme?
Wer wird wohl Neues
im scheinbar leeren All entdecken wollen,
anstatt unendlich jung
vom Wissen zu naschen ?

Ein Moment für die Ewigkeit;
Ein Platz im Tagebuch;
Ein Abenteuer -
Nur ein Spiel.
Ein Sprung im Zirkuszelt der weisen Greise.

Wer verjagt wen?
Das Kind den Mann ?
Der Mann das Kind ?
In einem Geist vereint auf Zeit,
Nicht ewig,
Menschen streiten sich fast immer nur
um Nahrung oder Lustgewinn?
Die Zeit betrügen...

Irgendwann schlägt die Zeit zurück,
und fesselt den Verstand an die Vergangenheit.
Das Gestern wird vom Zauber junger Jahre verdrängt -
Die Zukunft hat noch keinen Geschmack,
Keine Farbe,
Kein Gesicht...
War das wirklich alles?

Frisst die Zeit meine Träume?
Ich torkel durch ein Feuerwerk
aus menschlicher Unmenschlichkeit,
bleibt ein Mann auch Kind ?
Sag Ja - nicht Nein!

Nur ein Narr betrügt die Zeit

War das wirklich alles?

Translation:

Just a fool

Regarding carefully;
not stumbling blind,
cheating the time.

Incomprehensible,
Our existence -
Its sense...

Not to buy memories,
infinity would have been nearly reached,
but for which price ?
The curiosity,
the urge to discover;
body and mind -
no matter if strange or property,
just one thing - joice;
enriching next generation with your own substance.

But... why discover,
if manipulating came before learning ?
Who will perhaps discover new
in the apparently empty outer space,
instead of endless young
nibbling of knowledge ?

A moment for eternity;
A place in diary;
An adventure -
just a game.
A jump in the big top of wise old men.

Who'll chase away whom ?
The man the child ?
The child the man ?
In one mind united unlasting,
Not eternal,
Humans argue nearly always only
about nutrition or gain of lust ?
Cheating the time...

Some day time strikes back,
and fetters the mind to past.
The yesterday is chased away by the magic of young years -
Future doesn't have a name yet,
Nor a color,
Nor a face...
Has that really been all?

Is time eating my dreams ?
I'm shambling through a firework
of human's inhumanity,
does a man stay a child ?
Say 'yes' - not 'no'!

Just a fool is cheating time.

Has that really been all?

i found this one in my English book, and i kind of... somehow... really like it a lot   :)  specially the third and fourth stanza...  


FUNERAL BLUES by WH Auden


stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
silence the pianos and with muffled drum
bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
scribbling on the sky the message He is Dead,
put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

he was my North, my South, my East and West,
my working week and my Sunday rest,
my noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
i thought that love would last forever: i was wrong.

the stars are not wanted now; put out every one;
pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
pour away the ocean and sweep out the wood,
for nothing now can ever come to any good.
all dogs are great, but mine is absolutely 100% the greatest dog who ever dogged!

some songs just  really hit the nail

anouk - with you

When I look into you eyes you leave me all those butterflies

I should ask myself again is it worth the trouble through life

‘Cause I do not know what to do with your smile though years

Passed by

If I only could replace all the thoughts I have of you

In my mind

 

But I don’t know

And I don’t care

What you do

I’m just so glad to see you again

And I don’t really understand

Why the touch of your hand makes my arms

Wanna hold you

‘Cause I am

So in love with you

 

If I could do it all again I’d say the things I really meant and all

I can do

Sit and wait knowing you will say

It’s a little too late

For you

Yeah I noticed the ring on your finger guess too many years

Have passed by

If I only could erase all the thoughts I have of you

In my mind

 

But I don’t know

And I don’t care

What you do

I’m just so glad to see you again

And I don’t really understand

Why the touch of your hand makes my arms

Wanna hold you

Yes I am

Still in love with you

 

Dreaming as years go by I’m just another fool

Out in the moonlight hiding the tears

I can’t stop thinking ‘bout what if you were meant to be

For me

 

But I don’t know

And I don’t care

What it is

I am so glad to see you again

And I don’t really understand

Why the touch of your hand makes my arms

Wanna hold you

Yes I am

Still in love with you

 

Yes I am

In love with you

One Day I'll Fly away

I follow the night
Can't stand the light
When will I begin
To live again?

One day I'll fly away
Leave all this to yesterday
What more could your Love do for me?
When will Love be through with me?

Why live life from dream to dream?
And dread the day when dreaming ends

One day I'll fly away
Leave all this to yesterday
Why live life from dream to dream?
And dread the day when dreaming ends

One day I'll fly away
Fly, fly away
Chose being kind over being right, always!

"Within You"
by David Bowie in the movie "Labyrinth"

How you turned my world, you precious thing
You starve and near exhaust me
Everything I've done, I've done for you
I move the stars for no one

You've run so long
You've run so far

Your eyes can be so cruel
Just as I can be so cruel
Though I do believe in you

Yes I do

Live without the sunlight
Love without your heartbeat
I, I can't live within you

I can't live within you

(sigh)

I, I can't live within you

Too Much Love Will Kill You
Brian Harold May (Queen)

I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone
For much too long
I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking back to find
Where I went wrong
Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between the lover
And the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster
'cos you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you
Every time
I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems like there's no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down
How would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose
No there's no making sense of it
Every way I go I'm bound to lose
Too much love will kill you
Just as sure as none at all
It'll drain the power that's in you
Make you plead and scream and crawl
And the pain will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you
Every time
Too much love will kill you
It'll make your life a lie
Yes, too much love will kill you
And you won't understand why
You'd give your life, you'd sell your soul
But here it comes again
Too much love will kill you
In the end...
In the end.

Love Of My Life - queen

Love of my life, you hurt me,
You've broken my heart, and now you leave me.

Love of my life can't you see,
Bring it back bring it back,
Don't take it away from me,
Because you don't know what it means to me.

Love of my life don't leave me,
You've stolen my love now desert me,

Love of my life can't you see,
Bring it back bring it back,
Don't take it away from me,
Because you don't know what it means to me.

You will remember when this is blown over,
And everythings all by the way,
When I grow older,
I will be there at your side,
To remind you how I still love you
I still love you.

Hurry back hurry back,
Don't take it away from me,
Because you don't know what it means to me.

Love of my life,
Love of my life.
Chose being kind over being right, always!

Du hältst das Fieber wach by Kante

die hand die mich streift
der blick den ich spür
die hitze der haut, der atem der streikt
wenn er mich berührt

der riss in der zeit
der pulsschlag der steigt
die haut die begreift bevor man vesteht
was hier vor sich geht

du folgst mir in die nacht
und hältst die träume wach
du bleibst in mir
und kreist in mir
und hältst das fieber wach

das blut das sich dehnt
das schwindelgefühl
das nervengeflecht, das sich nach dir sehnt
der schweiss der nicht kühlt

die haut auf der haut
die fiebrigen wellen
der atem am ohr, so nah und so laut
die adern die schwellen

du folgst mir in die nacht
und hältst die träume wach
du bleibst in mir
und kreist in mir
und hältst das fieber wach

du bleibst in mir
du kreist in mir
und hältst das fieber wach

du bleibst in mir
du kreist in mir
und hältst das fieber wach
du hältst das fieber wach

Here dead we lie
Alfred Edward Housman


Here dead we lie
Because we did not choose
To live and shame the land
From which we sprung.

Life, to be sure,
Is nothing much to lose,
But young men think it is,
And we were young.

Emotie de toamna
de Nichita Stanescu
A venit toamna, acoperă-mi inima cu ceva,
cu umbra unui copac sau mai bine cu umbra ta.

Mă tem că n-am să te mai văd, uneori,
că or să-mi crească aripi ascuţite până la nori,
că ai să te ascunzi într-un ochi străin,
şi el o să se-nchidă cu o frunză de pelin.

Şi-atunci mă apropii de pietre şi tac,
iau cuvintele şi le-nec în mare.
Şuier luna şi o răsar şi o prefac
într-o dragoste mare.

Autumn Emotion
by Nichita Stanescu
Autumn came so please cover my heart with the
Tree shade—or yours so it won’t wither.
I fear that perhaps I won’t see you sometimes
That I’ll grow sharp wings up to the skies
That you’ll hide within a foreign eye
Which will close with a bitter good-bye.
And then I go near the rocks and shut up.
Take the words and drown them in the sea.
I whistle the moon and rise it and turn it
Into a big love.
Noch immer brennt in mir dein Licht

December
      By George Bacovia

See how December snows ...
Look there by the window, my dear -
Tell them to bring in more embers,
Then we can hear the fire roar.

Push the armchair up the stove
And then we'll hear, by the chimney,
The storm, or my days - it's the same -
I must learn their symphony.

How warm it is here in your home,
Which to me is totally sacred, -
See how December snows ...
Don't laugh ... go on reading aloud.

It's day and what darkness there is ...
We need a lamp fetched, would you ask -
Look, the snow is as high as the fence,
And the door-handle's caught by the frost.

I'm not going home now today ...
In front and behind there's a flood,
See how December snows ...
Don't laugh ... go on reading aloud.


Decembre

Te uita cum ninge decembre,
Spre geamuri, iubito, priveste -
Mai spune s-aduca jaratec
Si focul s-aud cum trosneste.

Si mana fotoliul spre soba,
La horn sa ascult vijelia,
Sau zilele mele - totuna -
As vrea sa le-nvat simfonia.

Mai spune s-aduca si ceaiul,
Si vino si tu mai aproape, -
Citeste-mi ceva de la poluri,
Si ninga ... zapada ne-ngroape.

Ce cald e aicea la tine.
Si toate din casa mi-s sfinte, -
Te uita cum ninge decembre ...
Nu rade ... citeste-nainte.

E ziua si ce intuneric ...
Mai spune s-aduca si lampa -
Te uita, zapada-i cat gardul,
Si-a prins promoroaca si clanta.

Eu nu mai duc azi acasa ...
Potop e-napoi si-nainte,
Te uita cum ninge decembre,
Nu rade, citeste-nainte.
Noch immer brennt in mir dein Licht
