Mirah - Country of the future

 
 
And is it the carnival?
I can't hear, it's too far away
Main Lyrics
Oh, love, when you look at the stars at night
Remember, oh, love, it's my longing makes them shine so bright
Because love has both captured and set us free
To each our own country
Complete Lyrics
And is it the carnival?
I can't hear, it's too far away
But, love, with me you always stay
No matter which street you walk upon

It's the same sun on us shining
But see how mine is cold and pining
For the heat that you bring
when you take me in your arms

Oh, love, come dance a simple step with me
Oh, love, let's move in time feel the 1, 2, 3
Oh, love, can you hear the ocean's heart as mine?
How it swells inside

And is it the carnival?
Can you hear all the songs they play
Turning the night into the day
You're lost in the atmosphere

And if you need some part of me
When you're alone there by the sea
I'll sing you this message through the shell
That you press to your cheek

Oh, love, when you look at the stars at night
Remember, oh, love, it's my longing makes them shine so bright
Because love has both captured and set us free
To each our own country

Oh, love, when you look at the stars at night
Remember, oh, love, it's my longing makes them shine so bright
Because love has both captured and set us free
To each our own country

La la la la la la la la la la la la


Tegan and Sara - Divided


Girl in a Coma - She had a plan



When yesterday is over
And tonight just began
You sit there in your corner and wish it was the end
But listen here my friend
The story never starts until you break your heart
I know there was a plan beneath the story, too slow
There was a plan beneath the story

But do you know just what it's like?

To fall asleep and no one there to tell you everything is alright

Two souls

One of us let go
Too bold
One of us let go

When yesterday is over


Mirah - Words Cannot Describe



Words cannot describe
The twinkle in your eyes
The fireworks that happen
Inside my heart they're snappin'
I'm wishin' on a star to be with you

This lazy afternoon

Will find me in my room
Plucking petals one by one
Oh my heart will come undone
Wondering if my wishes will come true

I'm waiting for the day you'll let me love you

I'm like a flower swooning for the sun
Shine on me so tenderly, my love
And say that you will be my only one

I look up at the moon

And hope that maybe soon
We'll be together i can tell
Our romance will be like a spell
Cast upon the town when we're around

I see you walking by

'N there's no use to disguise
The fella in me quivers
And now i've got the shivers
Tingling up my spine, oh you're divine

Moa Lignell - When I held ya


Leona Lewis - Bleeding love



Closed off from love
I didn't need the pain
Once
or twice was enough
And it was all in vain
Time starts to pass
Before you know it you're frozen

But something happened

For the very first time with you
My heart melts into the ground
Found something true
And everyone's looking round
Thinking I'm going crazy

But I don't care what they say

I'm in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don't know the truth
My heart's crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding

Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

Trying hard not to hear

But they talk so loud
Their piercing sounds fill my ears
Try to fill me with doubt
Yet I know that the goal
Is to keep me from falling

But nothing's greater than the rush that comes with your embrace

And in this world of loneliness
I see your face
Yet everyone around me
Thinks that I'm going crazy, maybe, maybe

But I don't care what they say

I'm in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don't know the truth
My heart's crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding

Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

And it's draining all of me

Oh they find it hard to believe
I'll be wearing these scars
For everyone to see

I don't care what they say

I'm in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don't know the truth
My heart's crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding

Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding

Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love

Wallis Bird - You are mine




You wore your clothes in bed
And the stars came out from night
Sweet and soft in every respect
You whipped your arms around me
And you smiled

And all the strength in the world

Couldn't hold my tears that night
I held onto you like you were going away
And you just lay there you didn't even realise

My love I love you

Goodbye so long farwell
For a while goodbye
And when you come back
Will you look for me?
I'm serious
For I love you
And you are mine

Well I've never felt like this

I'm confused and?
Well I fell out with friends
But they stayed true
They misguidedly tell me
All I did was you

But you never let me know

Should you ever love me less
Ooh I hold onto you you're not going anywhere
And I just constantly tell you, you're the best

My love I love you

Goodbye so long farwell
For a while goodbye
And when you come back
Will you look for me?
I'm serious
For I love you
And you, you
My love I love you
Goodbye so long farwell
For a while goodbye
And when you come back
Will you marry me?
I'm serious
For I love you
And you are mine

Sia - Natale's Song


Rachael Yamagata - Under my skin



I hesitate to say I was bait for you
Could that be something that you all would do
I'd be lying if I did now say I wasn't intrigued
But timing is everything here
And for the moment the 'we' is reprieved
But, as I watch the girl unfold before my eyes,
I discover that I like her

Would you please get our from under my skin

'Cause I can't begin this yet
And I don't know what my intentions are
They're speaking in a different tongue
And deep inside, I'm not as tough as I seem
But I won't let you know
Until it's right, I'm gonna stay my distance
And you should go

I'm in the dance, and it's a chance,

But stay and watch awhile
I'll be singing a tune just for you with a smile
And maybe, if I'm lucky
You'll tip your hat to me, and you'll discover
That you like her


Would you please get our from under my skin

For I can't begin this yet
And I don't know what my intentions are
They're speaking in a different tongue
And deep inside, I'm not as tough as I seem
But I won't let you know
Until it's right, I'm gonna stay my distance
And you should go

Crazy as it al plays out

I think I'm lonelier than I've ever been before
'Cause I was so close
To going through that door
But I don't want to be to blame for them
I don't want to be to blame

Would you please get our from
under my skin
'Cause I can't begin this yet
And I don't know what my intentions are
They're speaking in a different tongue
And deep inside, I'm not as tough as I seem
But I won't let you know
Until it's right, I'm gonna stay my distance
And you should go, go, go
Oh, would you please get out
I'm not as strong as I seem, but I won't let you know


Lily Allen - Fuck you




Look inside
Look inside your tiny mind
Now look a bit harder
Cause we're so uninspired, so sick and tired of all the hatred you harbor

So you say

It's not okay to be gay
Well I think you're just evil
You're just some racist who can't tie my laces
Your point of view is medieval

Fuck you

Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you

Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don't translate
And it's getting quite late
So please don't stay in touch

Do you get

Do you get a little kick out of being slow minded?
You want to be like your father
It's approval you're after
Well that's not how you find it

Do you

Do you really enjoy living a life that's so hateful?
Cause there's a hole where your soul should be
Your losing control of it and it's really distasteful

Fuck you

Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you

Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don't translate and it's getting quite late
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you,

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you,
Fuck you

You say, you think we need to go to war

Well you're already in one,
Cause its people like you
That need to get slew
No one wants your opinion

Fuck you

Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
And we hate your whole crew
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you

Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don't translate and it's getting quite late
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you

Vienna Teng - City Hall




Me and my baby on a february holiday
'cause we got the news
Yeah, we got the news
500 miles and we're gonna make it all the way
We've got nothing to lose
We've got nothing to lose

It's been 10 years waiting

But it's better late than the never
We've been told before
We can't wait one minute more

Oh, me and my baby driving down

To a hilly seaside town in the rainfall
Oh, me and my baby stand in line
You've never seen a sight so fine
As the love that's gonna shine
At city hall

Me and my baby've been through

A lot of good and bad
Learned to kiss the sky
Made our momma's cry
I've seen a lot of friends
After giving it all they had
Lay down and die
Lay down and die

10 years into it

Here's our window
At the vegas drive-thru chapel
It ain't too much
For 'em all to handle

Oh, me and my baby driving down

To a hilly seaside town in the rainfall
Oh, me and my baby stand in line
You've never seen a sight so fine
As the love that's gonna shine
At city hall

Outside, they're handing out

Donuts and pizza pies
For the folks in pairs in the folding chairs
My baby's lookin' so damned pretty
With those anxious eyes
Rain-speckled hair
And my ring to wear

10 years waiting for this moment of fate

When we say the words and sign our names
If they take it away again someday
This beautiful thing won't change

Oh, me and my baby driving down

To a hilly seaside town in the rainfall
Oh, me and my baby stand in line
You've never seen a sight so fine
As the love that's gonna shine

Oh, me and my baby driving down

To a hilly seaside town in the rainfall
Oh, me and my baby stand in line
You've never seen a sight so fine
As the love that's gonna shine
At city hall

Pink ft. Indigo Girls - Dear Mr. President





Dear Mr. President,
Come take a walk with me.
Let's pretend we're just two people and
You're not better than me.
I'd like to ask you some questions if we can speak honestly.

What do you feel when you see all the homeless on the street?
Who do you pray for at night before you go to sleep?
What do you feel when you look in the mirror?
Are you proud?

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye
And tell me why?

Dear Mr. President,
Were you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
How can you say
No child is left behind?
We're not dumb and we're not blind.
They're all sitting in your cells
While you pave the road to hell.

What kind of father would take his own daughter's rights away?
And what kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay?
I can only imagine what the first lady has to say
You've come a long way from whiskey and cocaine.

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye?

Let me tell you 'bout hard work
Minimum wage with a baby on the way
Let me tell you 'bout hard work
Rebuilding your house after the bombs took them away
Let me tell you 'bout hard work
Building a bed out of a cardboard box
Let me tell you 'bout hard work
Hard work
Hard work
You don't know nothing 'bout hard work
Hard work
Hard work
Oh

How do you sleep at night?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Dear Mr. President,
You'd never take a walk with me.
Would you?

Billie Myers - A Few Words too Many




Wait a minute
What did you say
Did I hear you say
There’s no real reason left for you to stay?
Under your breath I hear your soft voice break
Can we still be friends
I hear you talking but you’re just not making sense
I’ve been hoping for a happy ending
Now I know that there won’t be any

Just a few words too many
In my head
A few words too many
In this bed
A few words too many
Left unsaid
Oh I wish that we were strangers
We could start again
Start again
All over

A broken shadow falls across your face
As you hesitate
Trying to think of all the things you need to say

Bare face the truth lies at my feet
As you turn away
Sometimes silence has a way of making peace

I’ve been hoping for a happy ending
Now I knew that there won’t be any

Just a few words too many
In my head
A few words too many
In this bed
A few words too many
Left unsaid
Oh I wish that we were strangers
We could start again
Start again
All over again

Staring at the ceiling
Wondering just what you’re feeling
Was it me
Or was it you
What’s the difference
If I knew

Maybe I wouldn’t feel so empty
If I had heard a few words too many
In my head
A few words too many
In this bed
A few words too many
Left unsaid

Oh I wish that we were strangers
We could start again
Start again
Start all over again

We could start again
We could start again

Round and round and round and round
In my head

Yeah

Wait a minute
What did you say
Did I hear you say

Charlotte Gainsbourg - The Operation






I want to explore you
i'm gonna get under your skin
so you can feel me running through your veins

i want to examine
every inch of your frame
the pressure points that cause your joy and pain

our love goes under the knife
there is no room for doubt

now i'm inside you
my hands can feel their way
further inside than i have ever been

now i can really
mess around with your heart
and fill it to the brim with broken dreams

our love goes under the knife
two lives may be saved

and if i pull this off
i'll refuse the nobel prize
instead i will look into your eyes

if i pull this off your whole body will be mine
and i'm prepared to work throughout the night

our love goes under the knife
nothing is taboo
...here on the cutting edge of science

too much information
i feel i'm getting lost
absorbed into the fibre of your soul

deep within the abbatoir
of your entrails your insides
lost in you forever far from home

our love goes under the knife
someone got too close

our love goes under the knife
the heart was rejected by the host

Meg Christian - Ode to a Gym Teacher




She was a big tough woman, the first to come along
That showed me being female meant you still could be strong
And though graduation meant that we had to part
She’ll always be a player on the ballfield of my heart

I wrote her name on my note-pad
And inked it on my dress
And I etched it on my locker
And I carved it on my desk

And I painted big red hearts
With her initials on my books
And I never knew till later
Why I got those funny looks

She was a big tough woman, the first to come along
That showed me being female meant you still could be strong
And though graduation meant that we had to part
She’ll always be a player on the ballfield of my heart

Well, in gym class while the others
Talked of boys that they loved
I’d he thinking of new aches and pains
The teacher had to rub
And while other girls went to the prom
I languished by the phone
Calling up and hanging up
If I found out she was home

She was a big tough woman, the first to come along
That showed me being female meant you still could be strong
And though graduation meant that we had to part
She’ll always be a player on the ballfield of my heart

I sang her songs by Johnny Mathis
I gave her everything -
A new chain for her whistle
And some daisies in the spring
Some suggestive poems for Christmas
By Miss Edna Millay
And a lacy, lacy, lacy card
For Valentine’s Day

She was a big tough woman, the first to come along
That showed me being female meant you still could be strong
And though graduation meant that we had to part
She’ll always be a player on the ballfield of my heart

So you just go to any gym class
And you’ll be sure to see
One girl who sticks to teacher
Like a leaf sticks to a tree
One girl who runs the errands
And who chases all the balls
One girl who may grow up
To be the gayest of all

She was a big tough woman, the first to come along
That showed me being female meant you still could be strong
And though graduation meant that we had to part
She’ll always be a player on the ballfield of my heart

Chris Pureka - Burning Bridges




This is a story of burning bridges
and allowing time to pass
this is a story of forgiveness
and breaking things in my hands
this is a story of understanding
you can't choose who you love
and this is a story of soft skin
and rats in the walls

well you can't just pass along
the pain that comes around
you'll go dizzy until you fall
and I know you didn't mean to let me down
but you let me down so hard

this is a story of loaded glances
and leaning in too far
this is a story of vague advances
and confessions in smoky bars
so now I am walking down the sidewalk
and I am singing to myself
and I'm going to leave it all behind me now
'cause I don't need this,
I just don't need this

and you can't...

these memories are talking and talking
and I'll do anything to shut 'em up
I've got the pillow over my head
but they won't stop
no, no they won't stop

some fantasies are never meant to be
realized at all
and some regrets could be prevented
if you read the writing on the wall
oh and sometimes you say "you know nothing can happen"
and then she leans over and lifts off your glasses
and the next thing you know you're just tangled and guilty
and you've got a head full of liquor and perfume
oh and when did you leave me
and when did you find her
and tell me is this just what you wanted...

The Be Good Tanyas - Rain and Snow





Well I married me a wife
She gave me trouble all my life
She ran me out in the cold rain and snow
Rain and snow, rain and snow
She ran me out in the cold rain and snow

She came a runnin on down the stairs
Combin' back her long yellow hair
And her cheeks were as red as a rose
As a rose, as a rose
And her cheeks were as red as a rose

Well I ain't got no use
For your red apple juice
And I'm not gonna be treated this way
This way this way
And I'm not gonna be treated this way

I see you sitting in the shade
Counting every dime I've made
I'm so broke and I'm hungry too
Hungry too, hungry too
I'm so broke and I'm hungry too
I'm so broke and I'm hungry too

(repeat first verse)

God-Des & She - Don't be Afraid




If a woman loves a woman
Does that mean she's a lesbian?
It does?
Does that make her a lesbian?
Oh my god! She's a lesbian!
If a woman loves a woman
Does that mean she's a lesbian?
Lesbian, lesbian, lesbian

Well who the hell am i?
Who the hell are you?
I'm a white, gay, Jew that raps and confuses you
What am I trying to do?
I cant believe what I've gotten myself into
Yo, who knew?
I should take a bullet to my bangs and grow a mullet
Pick up a guitar and sing folk music
Or maybe dye my hair and sing punk rock
But I'd look rather odd
Like I do performing hip hop
Plus you would never want to hear me sing
Each note that I tried to hit your body would cringe
So I'll stick with what I do best
Writing rhymes that make you blush and feel embarrassed
Or maybe my appearance is hard to grasp
You'd rather see a girl shakin her ass
But that's in the past
Because me in a thong would look terribly wrong
Im just a lesbian
Cant we all get along?

Don't be afraid
She's only gay
She can rhyme for days
What more can I say
Wait
She is a pimp
Without a dick
She'll never quit
Til she get a hit, oh

I tried to rap about sucking dick
But the audience laughed and said
'God-des you're full of shit!'
Ill admit, I look more gay
Than Elton John with a thong on
Poopin on the john, feeding his swan
Im more masculine than Rosie when she cut off all her hair
And all of America got really scared
I tried to dress lik Lil' Kim
But I looked like I was in drag and
Everybody asked
'What is wrong with him?'
I tried to be hard and be a rap gangsta
But that didn't happen, people called me a wankster
I thought that I could take an afrocentric approach
But Im white so people called me a joke
I used to rap about bitches and hoes
Fat ass rides and all of my dough
But I realized I didn't even know any hoes
I drove a Dodge Shadow and my account was froze

Don't be afraid
She's only gay
She can rhyme for days
What more can I say
Wait
She is a pimp
Without a dick
She'll never quit
Til she get a hit, oh

I aint tryin to cause no beef like
50 and Ja, Nas and Jay
Im happy Im gay
Okay, its true, im a lesbian
Not a thespian, a lesbian
Accept it or not, my music is hot
Better call the cops cuz I just got popped
Alert TRL because the audience
Is gonna wonder why the hell Beyonce just fell
From number one
I get more attention than Sadam on the run
Im on the go, running from fans
Cuz people with God-des are screaming 'You're damn good'
Im hiding super deep like the Taliban
Its like a media circus with the curtains always open
Im hoping that the curtains will close
But that's what I deg for being this rap star lesbo
I'd like to welcome y'all to my reality show

Don't be afraid
She's only gay
She can rhyme for days
What more can I say
Wait
She is a pimp
Without a dick
She'll never quit
Til she get a hit, oh

If a woman loves a woman
Does that mean she's a lesbian?
Lesbian, lesbian
