Lyrics you love

Let's see if you guys like this thread!

 

This topic is to share 3-4 verses of a song you like, when the song it's not in English you can try to translate it. Some people might be interested in listening to the song even though they don't understand that language.

 

I'll start with a song from a Spanish group called Mägo de Oz (Spanish for Wizard of Oz), song's title is Te traeré el horizonte (I'll bring you the horizon).

 

I really like the lyrics of the chorus:

 

Spanish:

¿Para que quieres ser una estrella fugaz?

Si tienes a la luna en cada despertar
No busques cuentos con algún final feliz
Sé feliz sin tanto cuento y ponte a vivir, hey

 

English:

Why do you want to be a shooting star?

If you have the moon in every awakening

Don't look for tales with some happy ending

Be happy without so many stories and start to live! Hey!

Nice thread @OviiiOne 

 

“You've paid with your life
A slave from nine to five
You're spent through us
You take from us when we die
So claim the diamonds in your eyes”

I have been in love with this song for a few days now, quickly becoming one of my favorites! 

 

I'm still in love
Of when we met
With heaviest hearts
We were a silhouette

With a name like Somali Yacht Club, it’s only appropriate for them to have nautical-themed lyrics, at least on this track:

 

“Ships are sailing away

Ocean’s waving as their guide

Sharks are everywhere

I can feel it in my bones”

I could fill your thread with lyrics I like, but the first that came to mind is from a very dark song, which has a great chorus:

 

I don't want to start
Any blasphemous rumours
But I think that God's
Got a sick sense of humour
And when I die
I expect to find Him laughing

The light’s inside my cave.
I’m tired of my cave.
Oh these drugs they play on me these
terrible ways. They don’t pay like they
used to pay. I used to make it day to day.

I died a week ago
There's nothing left
It's caught on video
The very last breath
The very last breath
..
The Internal avalanche
The cave-in of mines
Covering all evidence
The very last time

Louisiana by Litfiba

spotify:track:0Tlfv9WbBr7cO9hZFxgtjk:small

 

Oh, Louisiana
It's raining on us
Our chains
Louisiana
Stand around waiting
And the time comes
To ride the lightning
Louisiana

Oh, Louisiana
The last cigarette
Tobacco fuse
Then my throne will explode
Thrown open windows
They plays bells
The black electric monster

Oh, Louisiana
It's raining on us
Imperfect roads
Nothing wants to change
But everything burns already
Burn the deserts of human charity
Louisiana
It's raining on us
Louisiana

It's raining, it's raining
On the continent of paper
An ocean of paper

Hi @OviiiOne,

 

Yes I love your idea. My all time favorite lyric is from bruce springsteen of course. You sure know it. Maybe you never really listened to the lyrics.

 

I come from down in the valley
Where mister when you're young
They bring you up to do like your daddy done
Me and Mary we met in high school
When she was just seventeen
We'd ride out of this valley down to where the fields were green
We'd go down to the river
And into the river we'd dive
Oh down to the river we'd ride
Then I got Mary pregnant
And man that was all she wrote
And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat
We went down to the courthouse
And the judge put it all to rest
No wedding day smiles no walk down the aisle
No flowers no wedding dress
That night we went down to the river
And into the river we'd dive
Oh down to the river we did ride, yeah yeah
I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company
But lately there ain't been much work on account of the economy
Now all them things that seemed so important
Well Mister they vanished right into the air
Now I just act like I don't remember
Mary acts like she don't care
But I remember us riding in my brother's car
Her body tan and wet down at the reservoir
At night on them banks I'd lie awake
And pull her close just to feel each breath she'd take
Now those memories come back to haunt me
They haunt me like a curse
Is a dream a lie if it don't come true
Or is it something worse
That sends me down to the river
Though I know the river is dry
That sends me down to the river tonight, yeah
Down to the river
My baby and I
Oh down to the river we ride, oh

Long shot In the name of God

Need a McCartney song

All I want you to know

Is that I won't be here for long

And my heart

Oh!, my heart is getting sore

This a nice post/idea of yours, OviiiOne

 

What do you mean, "I don't support your system"?
I go to court when I have to.
What do you mean, "I can't get to work on time"?
I got nothing better to do
And, what do you mean, "I don't pay my bills"?
Why do you think I'm broke? Huh?

...

...

...

What do you mean, "I ain't kind"?
I'm just not your kind.
