Sem resposta e sem desculpa

Algumas vezes uma música não ouvida por muito tempo nos traz lembranças de tempos e pessoas que merecem mesmo ficar no passado.

Viva o presente!

No Reply (Lennon/McCartney)

Egoísmo XIThis happened once before
When I came to your door, no reply
They said it wasn’t you
But I saw you peep through your window

I saw the light, I saw the light
I know that you saw me
‘Cause I looked up to see your face

I tried to telephone
They said that you were not home, that’s a lie
‘Cause I know where you’ve been
I saw you walk in your door

I nearly died, I nearly died
‘Cause you walked hand in hand
With another man in my place

Egoísmo XIIIf I were you I’d realize that I
Love you more than any other guy
And I’ll forgive the lies that I
Heard before when you gave me no reply

I’ve tried to telephone
They said you were not home, that’s a lie
‘Cause I know where you’ve been
I saw her walk in your door

I nearly died, I nearly died
‘Cause you walked hand in hand
With another man in my place
No reply, no reply

Letras: Secondhand Love

Uma letra amarga e que traduz brilhantemente aquele sentimento doído que vez por outra esbarra conosco. Esse é (acho) o primeiro post no qual repito uma música já publicada. Mas ela merece!

unfaithful-man-and-womanDon’t bring me secondhand love
Don’t bring me secondhand love

Now, you went out tonight
Who you been hanging around this time?
I don’t care if he’s black or white
I just don’t like his kind

I don’t want your secondhand love
I don’t want your secondhand love
I don’t want your secondhand love
Don’t bring me secondhand love

He’s been leaving his scent on you
I can sense it from a mile
All my money is spent on you
But you’re still selling your smile

Don’t bring me secondhand love
Don’t bring me secondhand love
I don’t want your secondhand love
I don’t want your secondhand love

Give your love
And keep blood between brothers
Give your love
And keep blood between brothers

I don’t want your secondhand love
Don’t bring me secondhand love
Don’t bring me secondhand love

I can guess where you’ve been tonight, yeah
You’ve been hanging out on the street
Wearing your dress too tight
Showin’ out to anyone you meet

But I don’t want your secondhand love
I don’t want your secondhand love
Don’t bring me your secondhand love
Don’t bring me your secondhand love

I want the first call on your kiss
Answer me one question, can you promise me this
I want my defenses laying in your hands
I don’t want to rest in the palm of another man

I don’t want your secondhand love
Don’t want, don’t want your secondhand love
I don’t want, I don’t want your secondhand love
I don’t want, I don’t want your secondhand love

I don’t want, I don’t want your secondhand love

 

She’s a Mystery to Me

Bela versão do U2 para a canção que Bono e The Edge entregaram para Roy Orbison gravar.

 

2789_2[1]Darkness falls and she will take me by the hand
Take me to some twilight land
Where all but love is grey
Where I can’t find my way
Without her as my guide

Night falls I’m cast beneath her spell
Daylight comes our heaven’s turns to hell
Am I left to burn
and burn eternally

She’s a mystery to me
She’s a Mystery Girl
She’s a Mystery Girl

In the night of love words tangled in her hair
Words soon to disappear
A love so sharp it cut like switchblade to my heart
words tearing me apart
She tears again my bleeding heart
I want to run she’s pulling me apart
Fallen angel cries
And I just melt away
She’s a mystery to me
She’s a Mystery Girl
She’s a Mystery Girl
She’s a Mystery Girl

hqdefault[1]Haunted by her side it’s the darkness in her eyes
That so enslaves me
But if my love is blind then I don’t want to see
She’s a mystery to me

Night falls I’m cast beneath her spell
Daylight comes our heaven’s turns to hell
Am I left to burn
and burn eternally

She’s a Mystery Girl
She’s a Mystery Girl
She’s a Mystery Girl
She’s a Mystery Girl
She’s a Mystery Girl
She’s a Mystery Girl
She’s a Mystery Girl

Os absurdos de Violão e Guitarra II

Já tinha postado aqui alguns erros absurdos dessa revista, mas não podia deixar essa de fora. Acho que desaprendia inglês mais do que aprendia. Hoje, morro de rir!

IM Paul McCartney
Cifra e tradução Coming Up

PS: Ainda tenho mais pérolas para postar!

Música do Dia: Mary (Pete Townshend)

Pete Townshend ScoopMary, you are everything a man could want,
And I want you, Mary.
Did you know when you pushed me once away from you
The thing I knew grew inside me.

People are dancing for you now,
But I can’t see why.
Can’t they see that they can’t beat
Nothing I have for you.

Mary, you are everything a man could need.
How I need you, Mary.
Yeah.
How I need you.

When I look at the hole in your coat.
I have to love you more.
I remember when I was a child
And my brother slept on the floor.

Oh, I know that the sun don’t shine
Down on every man.
But when women let the my brother down.
I swore one day I’d land
Me one Mary
Swore I’d land me one Mary.
Oh, Mary.

When I look at the hole in your coat.
I have to love your more.
I remember when I was a child.
My brother slept on the floor.

Oh, I know that the sun don’t shine.
Down on every man.
But when the woman let my brother down.
I swore one day, I’d land me mary.
I swore I’d land me mary.

 

Same Love – Paul McCartney

Não é por conta do Dia dos Namorados, mas essa música vale ser ouvida. Um dos momentos nos quais Paul escreveu uma letra realmente boa.

 

beautiful_night-cd_2Same Love

If I give my love again to you,
Will it be the same love that we once thought was true?
Will it be the same love?
Will it feel the same, love?
Will it be the same love that you once made to me?

The love you made to me, oo, the love you made to me, the love you made to me, oo,
the love you made to me, oo, the love you made to me, the love you made to me.

If it’s nothing like the first love, we’ll enjoy it right or wrong.
Why keep referring to the worst time when you’ve waited for so long? (for so long, baby)
You’ve waited for so long.

Same Love backThough it may not be as good as new,
But still it must be better than the pain that I went through.
Oh-oh,
Will it be the same love?
Will it feel the same, love?
Will it be the same love that you once made to me?

The love you made to me, oo, the love you made to me, the love you made to me, oo,
the love you made to me, oo, the love you made to me, the love you made to me.

Can’t Turn My Heart Away – Art Garfunkel

Essa é para os que estão na fossa (eitcha expressão velha) ou para os que eternamente se sentem tocados por letras e melodias que refletem algum momento de nossas vidas.


Art Garfunkel XI know you’ve run out of time for a fool like me.
It’s all over now, you can’t disguise,
All these constant good-byes.

I can’t see, but I close my eyes and I walk away.
And try not to hear the words you say,
But I can’t seem to turn my heart away.

There’s a feeling out tonight, you’re beside me everywhere.
Anyone would say, “It’s over,” but I just don’t seem to care,
‘Cause I could never turn my heart away,
I just can’t seem to turn my heart away.

I can hear the music play, well I’m the only one who knows.
Maybe I’m a fool for listenin’, but it takes me where it goes,
Art_Garfunkel_-_Scissors_Cut‘Cause I can never turn my heart away,
I just can’t seem to turn my heart away.

Something inside me needs to know
I can live to love again.
What is now has always been.
I need to let you know.

But I just can’t turn away, and I can’t stop loving you.
I can feel the end is near, but I can’t admit it’s true,
‘Cause I could never turn my heart away,
I just can’t seem to turn my heart away.

You go…I’ll stay,
‘Cause I just can’t seem to turn my heart away.

Elton John – Social Disease

A letra é uma sobre um desajustado, a melodia um tipo de country-rock e esse vídeo que encontrei torna a canção ainda mais deliciosa.

Social Disease (Elton John & Bernie Taupin)

 
My bulldog is barking in the backyard
Enough to raise a dead man from his grave
And I can’t concentrate on what I’m doing
Disturbance going to crucify my days
And the days they get longer and longer
And the nighttime is a time of little use
For I just get ugly and older
I get juiced on Mateus and just hang loose

chorus:
And I get bombed for breakfast in the morning
I get bombed for dinner time and tea
I dress in rags, smell a lot, and have a real good time
I’m a genuine example of a social disease

My landlady lives in a caravan
Well that is when she isn’t in my arms
And it seems I pay the rent in human kindness
But my liquor also helps to grease her palms
And the ladies are all getting wrinkles
And they’re falling apart at the seams
Well I just get high on tequila
And see visions of vineyards in my dreams

(repeat chorus)

And the ladies are all getting wrinkles
And they’re falling apart at the seams
Well I just get high on tequila
And see visions of vineyards in my dreams

chorus:
And I get bombed for breakfast in the morning
I get bombed for dinner time and tea
I dress in rags, smell a lot, and have a heart of gold
I’m a genuine example of a social disease

Música do Dia: Positively 4th Street

Dylan manda bem (principalmente quando outros o cantam). Leia com atenção que beleza de letra.

Positively 4th Street – por Rodrigo Santos

You got a lotta nerve
To say you are my friend
When I was down
You just stood there grinning

You got a lotta nerve
To say you gota helping hand to lend
You just want to be on
The side that’s winning

You say I let you down
You know it’s not like that
If you’re so hurt
Why then don’t you show it

You say you lost your faith
But that’s not where it’s at
You had no faith to lose
And you know it

I know the reason
That you talk behind my back
I used to be among the crowd
You’re in with

Do you take me for such a fool
To think I’d make contact
With the one who tries to hide
What he don’t know to begin with

You see me on the street
You always act surprised
You say, “How are you?” “Good luck”
But you don’t mean it

When you know as well as me
You’d rather see me paralyzed
Why don’t you just come out once
And scream it

No, I do not feel that good
When I see the heartbreaks you embrace
If I was a master thief
Perhaps I’d rob them

And now I know you’re dissatisfied
With your position and your place
Don’t you understand
It’s not my problem

I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment
I could be you

Yes, I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
You’d know what a drag it is
To see you

Música do dia: I Won’t Back Down – Tom Petty

Uma das minha canções preferidas de um dos melhores discos de rock já lançados (Full Moon Fever). A mensagem da letra é ótima para esses tempos nos quais os mais fracos se apoiam em outros para confrontar os mais fortes, achando que alcançarão algo mais duradouro que uma conquista passageira. Afinal, não há remédio que cure miopismo cerebral ou perseguição verdadeira.

Como diria um sábio amigo: Mesmo em rua de mão dupla, olhe para os dois lados antes de atravessar.

I Won’t Back Down – Tom Petty

Well I won’t back down
No I won’t back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won’t back down

No I’ll stand my ground, won’t be turned around
And I’ll keep this world from draggin me down
gonna stand my ground
… and I won’t back down

Chorus:
(I won’t back down…)
Hey baby, there ain’t no easy way out
(and I won’t back down…)
hey I will stand my ground
and I won’t back down

Well I know what’s right, I got just one life
in a world that keeps on pushin me around
but I’ll stand my ground
…and I won’t back down

(I won’t back down…)
Hey baby, there ain’t no easy way out
(and I won’t back down…)
hey I will stand my ground
(I won’t back down)
and I won’t back down…

(I won’t back down…)
Hey baby, there ain’t no easy way out
(I won’t back down)
hey I won’t back down
(and I won’t back down)
hey baby, there ain’t no easy way out
(and I won’t back down)
hey I will stand my ground
(and I won’t back down)
and I won’t back down
(I won’t back down)
No I won’t back down…

Get Yourself Another Fool

Algumas vezes paramos para pensar no que deveríamos ou gostaríamos de dizer para alguém. Para nossa sorte, sempre há um artista para traduzir nossos pensamentos em palavras (e algumas vezes melodias). Pode até ser que a pessoa para quem mandamos o recado nunca vá ler ou ouvir nossas palavras – talvez por nos ignorar, talvez por falta de sofisticação na hora de ouvir algo que não esteja ligado a um conjunto de baquetas -, mas isso não importa.

Obrigado Haywood Henry e Monroe Tucker – autores da canção) e obrigado Sam Cooke e Paul McCartney, pelas belas interpretações.



Get Yourself Another Fool (Haywood Henry, Monroe Tucker)

At last I wake up to see what you’ve done
So what can I can do but pack up and run
I know the rules, go get yourself another fool

You say that you love me, I’m yours to command
But your kind of loving, my heart couldn’t stand
You used me for a tool, go get yourself another fool

And now, now that we’re through
You say, you meant to be true
But deep in your heart you know
THAT our love could never grow

I try to believe you that we’D never part
But your Kind OF loving JusT broke my poor heart
Now I know the rules, go get yourself another fool

And now, now that we’re through
You say, you meant to be true
But deep down in your heart you know
That our love could never grow

Well I try to believe you that we’d never part
Your kind of loving just broke my poor heart
But I know THE rules go get yourself another fool

Yeah you’d better get yourself, get yourself
You’d better get yourself another fool
Go ahead and get yourself
Get yourself, get yourself another fool
Uuh

 

O que gira é peão

E não é com apenas duas rodadinhas em um domingo que alguém vai ficar tonto.

E todo mundo tenta entender o que escrevo :p


Roda Viva (Chico Buarque)

Tem dias que a gente se sente
Como quem partiu ou morreu
A gente estancou de repente
Ou foi o mundo então que cresceu
A gente quer ter voz ativa
No nosso destino mandar
Mas eis que chega a roda viva
E carrega o destino pra lá
Roda mundo, roda gigante
Roda moinho, roda peão
O tempo rodou num instante
Nas voltas do meu coração
A gente vai contra a corrente
Até não poder resistir
Na volta do barco é que sente
O quanto deixou de cumprir
Faz tempo que a gente cultiva
A mais linda roseira que há
Mas eis que chega a roda viva
E carrega a roseira pra lá
Roda mundo, roda gigante
Roda moinho, roda peão
O tempo rodou num instante
Nas voltas do meu coração
A roda da saia, a mulata
Não quer mais rodar, não senhor
Não posso fazer serenata
A roda de samba acabou
A gente toma a iniciativa
Viola na rua a cantar
Mas eis que chega a roda viva
E carrega a viola pra lá
Roda mundo, roda gigante
Roda moinho, roda peão
O tempo rodou num instante
Nas voltas do meu coração
O samba, a viola, a roseira
Um dia a fogueira queimou
Foi tudo ilusão passageira
Que a brisa primeira levou
No peito a saudade cativa
Faz força pro tempo parar
Mas eis que chega a roda viva
E carrega a saudade pra lá
Roda mundo, roda gigante
Roda moinho, roda peão
O tempo rodou num instante
Nas voltas do meu coração
Roda mundo, roda gigante
Roda moinho, roda peão
O tempo rodou num instante
Nas voltas do meu coração
Roda mundo, roda gigante
Roda moinho, roda peão
O tempo rodou num instante
Nas voltas do meu coração

Maybe I’m Amazed

A versão definitiva de uma das mais belas canções do rock.

Maybe I’m Amazed
at the way you love me all the time.
Maybe I’m afraid of the way I love you?

Maybe I’m Amazed at the way
you pull me out of time
You hung me on the line
Maybe I’m amazed at the way
I really need you?

Maybe I’m a man
Maybe I’m a lonely man
whose in the middle of something
that he doesn’t really understand.

Maybe I’m a man
Maybe your the only woman
who could ever help me.
Baby, won’t you help me to understand?

Maybe I’m a man
Maybe I’m a lonely man
whose in the middle of something
that he doesn’t really understand?

Maybe I’m a man,
Maybe your the only woman who could
ever help me?
Baby, won’t you help me to understand?

Maybe I’m amazed at the
way your with me all the time?
Maybe I’m afraid of the way I need you?

Maybe I’m amazed at the
way you help me sing this song,
right me when I’m wrong
Maybe I’m amazed at the
way I really need you?

Amar é bom?

O amor é, provavelmente, o sentimento mais supervalorizado e esquizofrênico vivido pelo ser humano. É possível entender o porquê de se odiar algo, de sentir medo ou prazer, mas é difícil explicar o que nos faz amar e o que o amor nos faz sentir.

Alguns ficam radiantes, outros preocupados e há até quem fique sem rumo. Amar é bom? Quem sou eu para tentar responder.

Talvez seja melhor amar todos os dias ou, quem sabe, não amar nunca. Assim, pode ser que tenhamos alguma segurança de que viveremos felizes.

Abaixo duas canções sobre o amor:

 

Love Hurts
Nazareth

Love hurts
love scares
love wounds and mares any heart
Not tough nor strong enough to take a lot of pain
Take a lot of pain
love is like a cloud
holds a lot of rain.
Love hurts
love hurts
I’m young I know but even so
I know a thing or two I’ve learned from you
I’ve really learned a lot
really learned a lot.
Love is like a stove
burns you when it’s hot.
Love hurts
love hurts
some fools rave of happiness

Blissfulness
togetherness
some fools fool themselves
I guess

But they’re not fooling me I know it isn’t true

No
it isn’t ture. Love is just a lie made to make you blue.
Love hurts
love hurts.

Love hurts
love scares
love wounds and mares any heart

The Power of Love
Huey Lewis and The News

The power of love is a curious thing
Make a one man weep, make another man sing
Change a heart to a little white dove
More than a feeling, that’s the power of love
Tougher than diamonds, whips like cream
Stronger and harder than a bad girl’s dream
Make a bad one good, Mmmm make a wrong right
Power of love will keep you home at night.
Don’t need money, don’t take fame
Don’t need no credit card to ride this train
It’s strong and it’s sudden and it’s cruel sometimes
But it might just save your life
That’s the power of love,
That’s the power of love
First time you feed it might make you sad
Next time you feed it might make you mad
But you’ll be glad baby when you’ve found
That’s the power that makes the world go round

REPEAT CHORUS

They say that all in love is fair
Yeah but you don’t care
But you know what to do
When it gets hold of you
And with a little help from above
You feel the power of love

SOLO

Don’t need money, don’t need fame
Don’t need no credit card to ride this train
Tougher than diamonds and stronger than steel
You won’t feel it until you feel
You feel the power, feel the power of love
That’s the power, that’s the power of love

The power of love is a curious thing
Make a one man weep, make another man sing
Change a heart to a little white dove
More than a feeling, that’s the power of love
Tougher than diamonds, whips like cream
Stronger and harder than a bad girl’s dream
Make a bad one good, Mmmm make a wrong right
Power of love will keep you home at night.
Don’t need money, don’t take fame
Don’t need no credit card to ride this train
It’s strong and it’s sudden and it’s cruel sometimes
But it might just save your life
That’s the power of love,
That’s the power of love
First time you feed it might make you sad
Next time you feed it might make you mad
But you’ll be glad baby when you’ve found
That’s the power that makes the world go round
REPEAT CHORUS
They say that all in love is fair
Yeah but you don’t care
But you know what to do
When it gets hold of you
And with a little help from above
You feel the power of love
SOLO
Don’t need money, don’t need fame
Don’t need no credit card to ride this train
Tougher than diamonds and stronger than steel
You won’t feel it until you feel
You feel the power, feel the power of love
That’s the power, that’s the power of love

Esperança Perdida

A vida tem mesmo momentos muito estranhos. Você passa da feliz a incrédulo num piscar de olhos.
Amiga, acabo de saber o que fizeram com você. Um absurdo. Anyway, o amor sempre estará aqui. Enquanto você viaja, uma canção para nossos corações.

Mil beijos (I know you know who you are),

 

Esperança Perdida
Antonio Carlos Jobim / Billy Blanco

Eu prá você fui mais um
Você foi tudo prá mim
Fiz de você o meu céu
Minha razão, meu tudo enfim

As coisas belas da vida
De nada servem porque
Porque não tenho querida
Você

Harmony – Elton John

Elton John e Bernie Taupin têm uma série de pérolas esquecidas ou que jamais se tornaram hits, apesar de terem todos os ingredientes para isso. Harmony é uma dessas canções. Última música do LP duplo Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (1973), ela só nçao foi um single porque Elton lançou Rock of the Westies e era preciso promover o novo disco. Bons tempos quando um artista lançava mais de um disco por ano e todos eram bons.

A letra de Harmony é mais uma prova do talento de Taupin para traduzir muitos dos nossos sentimentos. Em negrito o meu verso favorito.

Harmony

Hello, baby hello
Haven’t seen your face for a while
Have you quit doing time for me
Or are you still the same spoiled child

Hello, I said hello
Is this the only place you thought to go
Am I the only man you ever had
Or am I just the last surviving friend that you know

chorus

Harmony and me
We’re pretty good company
Looking for an island
In our boat upon the sea
Harmony, gee I really love you
And I want to love you forever
And dream of the never, never, never leaving harmony

Hello, baby hello
Open up your heart and let your feelings flow
You’re not unlucky knowing me
Keeping the speed real slow
In any case I set my own pace
By stealing the show, say hello, hello

[repeat chorus]

Ruby Tuesday – Rolling Stones

Don’t question why she needs to be so free / She’ll tell you it’s the only way to be

Tem gente que realmente acredita nisso.

Ruby Tuesday
Jagger / Richards

She would never say where she came from
Yesterday don’t matter if it’s gone
While the sun is bright
Or in the darkest night
No one knows
She comes and goes

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you…

Don’t question why she needs to be so free
She’ll tell you it’s the only way to be
She just can’t be chained
To a life where nothing’s gained
And nothing’s lost
At such a cost

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you…

There’s no time to lose, I heard her say
Catch your dreams before they slip away
Dying all the time
Lose your dreams
And you will lose your mind.
Ain’t life unkind?

Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Who could hang a name on you?
When you change with every new day
Still I’m gonna miss you…

Um Velho Amor (Old Love)

Old Love
Eric Clapton e Robert Cray

I can feel your body
When I’m lying in bed
There’s too much confusion
Going around through my head

And it makes me so angry
To know that the flame still burns
Why can’t I get over?
When will I ever learn?

Old love, leave me alone
Old love, go on home

I can see your face
But I know that it’s not real
It’s just an illusion
Caused by how I used to feel

And it makes me so angry
To know that the flame will always burn
I’ll never get over
I know now that I’ll never learn

Clouds (Suite) – David Gates – Mais uma para o Dia dos Namorados

See the clouds adrift so far below
Everchanging as they come and go
Makes me wonder why I’m up so high
When really I am down so low

Of all the wonders I was one allowed
I think that I would always choose a cloud
Always brings my feelings right out loud
Whether I’m ashamed or proud

On this airplane comin’ home to you
Sometimes I think I’ve flown my whole
life through
My whole life… through
As I wing my way to you

See the clouds they’re giving life below
In colors that the canvas cannot show
Keeping secrets no one else could know
For I’m the one who told them so

Now and then I get up close to you
I’d like to stay but I’m just passing through
So I’ll have to say goodbye…
Until next time I fly.

(interlude)

Make my bed-light the light
Comin’ in on the midnight flight
Touch the ground and soon you will be
Safe inside reality

Change your mind-change your name
Still the music it sounds the same

Rainfall don’t bother me at all
You see the world reflected on the highway
Come on rainbow-I can’t let you go
Before I reach the end of you someway

So the next time raindrops fall
If it makes you climb the walls just think
of green.

Mother Nature’s Son

Incrível pensar que uma das mais belas baladas já compostas (e que fala sobre um Filho da Mãe Natureza) foi composta e gravada sob as luzes artificiais dos estudios de Abbey Road.

Mother Nature’s Son
Lennon & McCartney

Born a poor young country boy
Mother Nature’s son.
All day long I’m sitting singing songs for everyone.

Sit beside a mountain stream
see her waters rise.
Listen to the pretty sound of music as she flies.

Find me in my field of grass
Mother Nature’s son.
Swaying daisies sing a lazy song beneath the sun.

Mother Nature’s son.

Essa é para você

Further On Up The Road
by Joe Medwich Veasey and Don D. Robey

Further on up the road
Someone’s gonna hurt you like you hurt me.
Further on up the road
Someone’s gonna hurt you like you hurt me.
Further on up the road,
Baby, just you wait and see.

You gotta reap just what you sow;
That old saying is true.
You gotta reap just what you sow;
That old saying is true.
Just like you mistreat someone,
Someone’s gonna mistreat you.

You been laughing, pretty baby,
Someday you’re gonna be crying.
You been laughing, pretty baby,
Someday you’re gonna be crying.
Further on up the road
You’ll find out I wasn’t lying.

Further on up the road
Someone’s gonna hurt you like you hurt me.
Further on up the road
Someone’s gonna hurt you like you hurt me.
Further on up the road,
Baby, just you wait and see.

Pode(ria) ser você

Dessa vez posto uma canção de um cantor/compositor muito pouco conhecido no Brasil (com excessão da canção baixo), tema de um ótimo filme com o grande Dustin Hoffman.

It Might Be You
Stephen Bishop
Composição: Alan Bergman, Marilyn Bergman, Dave Grusin

Time… I’ve been passing time watching trains go by
All of my life…
Lying on the sand, watching seabirds fly
Wishing there would be
Someone waiting home for me…

Something’s telling me it might be you
It’s telling me it might be you…
All of my life…

Looking back as lovers go walking past…
All of my life
Wondering how they met and what makes it last

If I found the place
Would I recognize the face?

Something’s telling me it might be you
Yeah, it’s telling me it might be you

So many quiet walks to take
So many dreams to wake
And we’ve so much love to make

I think we’re gonna need some time
Maybe all we need is time…
And it’s telling me it might be you
All of my life…

I’ve been saving love songs and lullabies
And there’s so much more
No one’s ever heard before…

Something’s telling me it might be you
Yeah, it’s telling me it must be you
And I’m feeling it’ll just be you
All of my life…
It’s you..
It’s you…
I’ve been waiting for all of my life…

Maybe it’s you…
Maybe it’s you…
I’ve been waiting for all of my life…

Maybe it’s you…
Maybe it’s you…
I’ve been waiting for all of my life…

All Our Past Times

All Our Past Times
by Eric Clapton e Rick Danko (The Band)

I don’t want to be the one to say I’m sorry.
I don’t want to be the one to take the blame.
I don’t want to be the one to throw it over.
I don’t want to be the one to feel ashamed.
I don’t want to be the one who thinks of nothing.
I don’t want to be the one to tell you what you have seen.
After all this time, well I thought that you were mine.
I just want to be the one who would share this dream.

All our past times should be forgotten.
All our past times should be erased.
I don’t care how much it costs;
‘Cause I don’t count the loss
As long as I can see your face again.

You don’t have to tell me when you’re leaving,
If it’s half past one, if it’s maybe four.
It makes no difference where you think you’re going,
But please remember not to slam the door.

Chorus

Yes, I don’t care how much it costs;
You know I don’t count the loss
As long as I can see your face again.

Sabe de alguém que não sabe o que perdeu?

Perdas fazem parte da vida
Ter consciência de que algo foi perdido é para poucos
Saber que se fez questão de perder é para menos ainda

Viajar, beber, tomar sol
Falar alto, manter a caixa de pacotinhos
Fazer barulho e pular

Desgraçados os que só sabem viver assim

For No One

Your day breaks, your mind aches,
You find that all her words of kindness linger on,
When she no longer needs you.
She wakes up, she makes up,
She takes her time and doesn’t feel she has to hurry,
She no longer needs you.
And in her eyes you see nothing,
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years.
You want her, you need her,
And yet you don’t believe her,
When she says her love is dead,
You think she needs you.
And in her eyes you see nothing,
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years.
You stay home, she goes out,
She says that long ago she knew someone but now,
He’s gone, she doesn’t need him.
Your day breaks, your mind aches,
There will be times when all the things she said will fill your head,
You won’t forget her.
And in her eyes you see nothing,
No sign of love behind the tears cried for no one,
A love that should have lasted years.
