Jenny Again

Tunng

/ Jenny Again /

Throw the knife into the stream
Run away across the fields
Leave me lying where I fell
Rivers running out of me
Meet my Jenny in the lane
Take a car and run away
Get as far as you can get
Before the new day

Your heart beats quick and strong
Your mind pores over it all
Don’t worry because no one saw me fall

Sit inside a little chef
Look around but not at her
See my kisses on her lips
See my fingers in her hair
Think of this against your will
See the knife edge slipping in
See the questions in my eyes
As I ask them

I went so quick it makes you shudder that I’m gone
Are we so brittle has your soul turned into stone
And though you loved me I’m not Jenny in the night
Some decisions don’t thread back to being right

Your head blurs quickly tonight
Your edges diffuse in the light
Don’t tell me that your throat is getting tight

Change your name and find a job
Marry Jenny in the spring
Buy a dog and call him Pete
Push the children on the swings
Think about me now and then
Try to find a peaceful space
Count the days as they go by
Count the lines upon your face

Your heart beats quick and strong
Your mind pores over it all
Don’t worry because no one saw me fall

Fake Plastic Trees

Radiohead

Fake Plastic Trees

A green plastic watering can
For a fake Chinese rubber plant
In the fake plastic earth

That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plans
To get rid of itself

It wears her out
It wears her out
It wears her out
It wears her out

She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns

He used to do surgery
For girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins

And it wears him out
It wears him out
It wears him out
Wears him out

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love

But I can’t help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run

And it wears me out
It wears me out
It wears me out
It wears me out

And if I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted
All the time
All the time

La Serotonina

Manel

La Serotonina

Em va pujar la febre l’altre dia
i van trucar a uns doctors especialitzats
en extreure la pedra de la bogeria,
en fer brollar la font de la felicitat.
I va venir un malson mentre m’adormien,
va dir «sóc teu, tu ets meu, no t’escaparàs».
Vaig dir «molt bé, malson, però els malsons
què somien?».
No puc dir que es quedés gaire impressionat…

Després recordo, en despertar-me,
la llum incandescent d’un flaix
i, prenent nota del gran miracle,
científics ianquis i cubans.

I em puja la serotonina,
em puja la serotonina
(em puja la serotonina)
com la marea quan arriba
(als peus cansats de tot el dia),
com una nena que s’enfila
(a un arbre ple de mandarines),
em puja la serotonina
(ai, em puja la serotonina).

Se’m va apropar un amor, un que jo tenia,
va preguntar «xicot, què et va passar?».
Vaig dir «no t’ho creuràs, una tonteria,
tenia una pedra dins del cap».
Se’m va apropar un futur que construíem,
vaig dir «cabró, que bé que ens ho hauríem passat».
Va contestar «gent millor que tu em volia»,
no puc negar que el futur digués la veritat…

La bona nova ja s’escampava
més enllà dels regnes cristians,
ja s’estripaven llibres d’Història
que havien quedat desfasats.

I em puja la serotonina,
em puja la serotonina
(em puja la serotonina)
com la marea quan arriba
(als peus cansats de tot el dia),
com una nena que s’enfila
(a un arbre ple de mandarines),
em puja la serotonina
(ai, em puja la serotonina).
Com el preu de la gasolina
(em puja la serotonina),
com les balenes quan respiren
(em puja la serotonina),
és una fràgil trapezista
(em puja la serotonina),
és una intrèpida alpinista
(em puja la serotonina).
Mami, mira amunt, mami mira amunt,
(que hi ha un satèl·lit que ens espia),
és King Kong a l’Empire State
(és un còndor que segresta un nen),
les velles es xapen de riure
(i enganxa més que l’heroïna),
em puja la serotonina
(ai, em puja la serotonina).

The One Moment

OK GO

/ The One Moment /

You’re right
There is nothing more lovely
There’s nothing more profound
Than the certainty
Than the certainty

That all of this will end
That all of this will end

So open your arms to me
Open your arms to me

And this will be
The one moment that matters
And this will be
The one thing we remember
And this will be
The reason to have been here
And this will be
The one moment that matters at all

So while the mud
Reclaims our footprints
And while our bones keep looking back
At the overgrowth that’s swallowing the path
There for the grace of god go we
There for the grace of god go we
There for the grace of time and chance
and entropy’s cruel hands

So open your arms to me
Open your arms to me

And this will be
The one moment that matters
And this will be
The one thing we remember
And this will be
The reason to have been here
And this will be
The one moment that matters at all

So won’t you stay here with me
And build till we’ve blistered our hands?
So won’t you stay here with me
And build us some temples
Build us some castles
Build us some monuments
And burn them all right down

So open your arms to me
Open your arms to me

And this will be
The one moment that matters
And this will be
The one thing we remember
And this will be
The reason to have been here
And this will be
The one moment that matters at all

(Overlapping)
So won’t you stay here with me
And build till we’ve blistered our hands?

(Overlapping)
This will be
The one thing we remember

(Overlapping)
So won’t you stay here with me
And build us some temples
Build us some castles
Build us some monuments
Build us some temples
Build us some castles
Build us some monuments

This will be
This will be
The one moment that matters
And this will be

The one moment that matters at all

Here Comes The Night Time

Arcade Fire

/ Here Comes the Night Time /

When the sun goes down

When the sun goes down you head inside
‘Cause the lights don’t work
Yeah nothing works they say you don’t mind
Here comes the night time
Here comes the night time
Here comes the night time

And the missionaries
They tell us we will be left behind
Been left behind
A thousand times, a thousand times
If you want to be righteous
If you want to be righteous, get in line
‘Cause here comes the night time
Here comes the night time
Here comes the night time
Here comes the night time
Here comes the night time
Here comes the night
Here comes the night time
Look out, here comes the night time!
They say, heaven’s a place
Yeah, heaven’s a place and they know where it is
But you know where it is?
It’s behind the gate, they won’t let you in
And when they hear the beat, coming from the street, they lock the door
But if there’s no music up in heaven, then what’s it for?
When I hear the beat, my spirit’s on me like a live-wire
A thousand horses running wild in a city on fire
But it starts in your feet, then it goes to your head
If you can’t feel it, then the roots are dead
And if you’re the judge, then what is our crime?
Here comes the night time
Here comes the night time
Here comes the night time
Here comes the night time
Here comes the night time
Here comes the night!
Here comes the night!
Look out, here comes the night!
Here comes the night!
Here comes the night!
Here comes the night, the night, the night, the night time!
Now the preachers they talk
Up on the satellite
If you’re looking for Hell, just try looking inside
Here comes the night time, the night time
Here comes the night time, the night time
Here comes the night time, the night time
Here comes the night time, the night time
Here comes the night time, the night time
When you look in the sky, just try looking inside
God knows what you might find
When you look in the sky, just try looking inside
God knows what you might find

Here comes the night time

Black Hole Sun

Soundgarden

/ Black Hole Sun /

In my eyes, indisposed

In disguises no one knows
Hides the face, lies the snake
The sun in my disgrace
Boiling heat, summer stench
‘Neath the black the sky looks dead
Call my name through the cream
And I’ll hear you scream again

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (won’t you come)

Stuttering, cold and damp
Steal the warm wind tired friend
Times are gone for honest men
And sometimes far too long for snakes
In my shoes, a walking sleep
And my youth I pray to keep
Heaven sent hell away
No one sings like you anymore

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)

Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)

Hang my head, drown my fear
Till you all just disappear

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come (black hole sun, black hole sun)
Won’t you come
Won’t you come

Something To Adore

Belako

/ Something To Adore /

Something to adore,

The floor upon us,

I could ask for more, don’t know.

Lying on the ground I found the key to

Travel to the moon and back

Something to adore

Something deep and pure

That thing that makes my body bounce

Something to adore I don’t ask for more

I need to feel my skin burn

Something you can taste,

A glimpse of magic

That keeps all the troubles out

Somewhere in your mind

You’ve crossed the line,

And now you wonder why

Something to adore

Something deep and pure

That thing that makes my body bounce

Something to adore

I don’t ask for more

I need to feel my skin burn
