"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Lyrics

Simply Rock

“Oh please let it rain today.
This city is so filthy, like my mind in ways.
Oh, there was a time, like a clean, new taste…
Smiling eyes before me, inches from my face.
Wash my love.
Wash my love.
Wash my love.

Sin to sell, buying just a need.
Just who planted all the devils seeds?
And what the truth, the truth that lies at home…
It’s on the inside, and I can’t get it off.

Wash my love.
Wash my love.
Wash my love.

What’s clean is pure, but hey,
I’m white on the outside, though I stray…
What she don’t know today might kill us both tomorrow.
Bring it back someway…bring it back, bring it back…
Back to the clean form, to the pure form.

Wash my love.
Wash my love.
Wash my love.
Wash my love.
Wash my love.
Wash my love.
Wash my love.
Wash my love.”


In Bloom

When are you coming,
You weary soul and hungry breath?
I hide your beautiful memory framed
Sleeping deep in the fire of my heart.

My breath rests easy on your chest
As the night blooming in your loving eyes
Comes out of depths of your soul
That you have even forgotten.

What does your heart hide for me,
You dawn ethereal love?
No more tears, no cage of stone
To hide my crumbling being.

The delicate touch of your smile
As you kiss my moonlight shining lips
Awaits for the sun to melt us
In a passionate bud eager to explode.

Bitter Moon – Stones In White

Stones In White

“I want to set on fire
my last shore when I don’t feel anymore
and the moon in black waters would be silent
to extinguish myself
carried by green waves into wide seas
alone as I was when I came.
I will pass
as if on white sheets you would close a circle
and your hand learns a different shape
I can forgive
or I can lie that oneday I can somehow forgive
when all that was mine will belong to someone else
to someone else
All the white stones
gather oblivion
and all that lives gets extinguished and dies
Black oblivion covers the trace
you are blood and clay, your life is one
You could
lie yourself that I will still be here somehow
but we know so well how to forget
If you want
to throw two stones in white, not to take them
in your thought let me be nothing anymore
All the white stones
gather oblivion
and all that lives gets extinguished and dies
Black oblivion covers the trace
you are blood and clay, your life is one”


Music For My Heart

“You are so beautiful when you laugh

You are so beautiful when you cry and run away from my arms

My God how you are beautiful when you smile for me”

 


The Sound Of Missing You

“All of me is all for you
You’re all I see
All of me is all for you
You’re all I need

All this life is all for love
It’s the only road I’ll choose
And every street and avenue
Only one will lead me back to you

One Love, One Love, One Love.”

Good Old Music…

 

 


Alive

I never wonder why I love Lana’s music so much.

She sings of tragedy, life, love and loss… Of missing, of kissing, of crazy loving, of being born to die and of living life…

She’s more alive than so many others.

 


Not a single centimeter

Not a single centimeter

“And we run to meet each other
The eyes closed from talking
Free and still relaxed
And we believe, baptized on still warm ways
The night seems superior
Free and yet tense
Free and still tense

I want not a single centimeter between us anymore
A spot without shape
I want a beginning with more depth, with more background
An end without censorship

And we lie
No far from our life
Free and still relaxed
And we however love the bright day
Openly and shy
Free and yet tense
So free and still relaxed

I want not a single centimeter between us anymore
A spot without shape
I want a beginning with more depth, with more background
An end without censorship

I would like to do, would like to do
Much more with you
I would like to do, would like to do
Much more with you

I want not a single centimeter between us anymore
A spot without shape
I want a beginning with more depth, with more background”

Music for My Heart

“Well I was moving at the speed of sound.
Head-spinning, couldn’t find my way around, and
Didn’t know that I was going down.
Yeah, yeah.
Where I’ve been, well it’s all a blur.
What I was looking for, I’m not sure.
Too late and didn’t see it coming.
Yeah, yeah.

And then I crashed into you,
And I went up in flames.
Could’ve been the death of me,
But then you breathed your breath in me.
And I crashed into you,
Like a runaway train.
You will consume me,
But I can’t walk away.

Somehow, I couldn’t stop myself.
I just wanted to know how it felt.
Too strong, I couldn’t hold on.
Yeah, yeah.
Now I’m just tryin’ to make some sense
Out of how and why this happened.
Where we’re heading, there’s just no knowing.
Yeah, yeah.

And then I crashed into you,
And I went up in flames.
Could’ve been the death of me,
But then you breathed your breath in me.
And I crashed into you,
Like a runaway train.
You will consume me,
But I can’t walk away.

From your face, your eyes
Are burning to me.
You saved me, you gave me
Just what I need.
Oh, just what I need.

And then I crashed into you,
And I went up in flames.
Could’ve been the death of me,
But then you breathed your breath in me.
And I crashed into you,
Like a runaway train.
You will consume me,
But I can’t walk away.

And then I crashed into you,
And then I crashed into you,
And then I crashed into you,
And then I crashed into you,
And I crashed into you,
Like a runaway train.
You will consume me,
But I can’t walk away”


Delain – April Rain

“How does it feel when all you’re counting on is scatterbrained
Every wind that you have sailed upon, a hurricane
Every summer you have seen was filled with April rain
It doesn’t get easy, don’t you know

Fortune smiles on you
You’re not watching, dig that hole deeper
Fortune smiles on you
You’re not watching, create your own fate

Count your blessings and prepare to change your point of view
All those days that you spend waiting won’t come back to you
Take off the glasses that have treated your world black and grey
It doesn’t get easy, don’t you know

Fortune smiles on you
You’re not watching, dig that hole deeper
Fortune smiles on you
You’re not watching, create your own fate

Keep raining
‘Cause we are blind, ’cause we are tired, ’cause we are blind to fortune’s guidance now
It keeps raining, ’cause we are blind, it will keep raining, ’cause we are tired
It keeps raining, ’cause we are blind oh, it will keep raining ’cause we are tired

Fortune smiles on you
You’re not watching, dig that hole deeper
Fortune smiles on you
You’re not watching, create your own fate”


Music for My Heart

“I’ve made my mistakes
I’ve seen my heart cave in
I’ve got my scars
I’ve been to hell and back again
Born for the blue skies
We’ll survive the rain
Born for the sunrise
We’ll survive the pain
We’re singing…
Hey, you can’t count us out
We’ve been running up against the crowd
Yeah, we’re the Dark Horses
We’re singing…
Wait! It’s not over now
We’ve been down but we’ve never been out
Yeah, we’re the Dark Horses
We found a way out
The city takes everything it can
But outside the crowds
I can feel my lungs again
Born for the blue skies
We’ll survive the rain
Born for the sunrise
We’ll survive the pain
We’re singing…
Hey, you can’t count us out
We’ve been running up against the crowd
Yeah, we’re the Dark Horses
We’re singing…
Wait! It’s not over now
We’ve been down but we’ve never been out
Yeah, we’re the Dark Horses
We’re singing…
Laa la-la-la-la-laa
Laa la-la-la-la-laa
Yeah…
Born for the blue skies, yeah
Born for the blue skies
Born for the sunrise
We’ll survive the pain
We’re singing…
Hey, you can’t count us out
We’ve been running up against the crowd
Yeah, we’re the Dark Horses
We’re singing…
We don’t care what they say
We know we’ll find a way
Yeah, we are the Dark Horses
Yeah!
Laa la-la-la-la-laa
Laa la-la-la-la-laa…
Keep running with the Dark Horses
Hope makes the blood change courses
Keep running with the Dark Horses
Stand up for the Dark Horses
Keep running with the Dark Horses
Hope makes the blood change courses”


Music for My Heart

When Nobody Sees Me

“Sometimes I get high, spin around a thousand times
Sometimes I lock myself behind open doors
Sometimes I tell you why all the silence
It’s just that sometimes I’m yours and at others I belong to the wind
Sometimes I belong to one, at others to a hundred
And there are times, baby, I swear I think:
“Why is it so hard to feel the way I do?”
Feel like I do, that it’s hard
Sometimes I look at you and sometimes you let me
You lend me your wings, retrace your footprints
Sometimes for all though you never fail me
Sometimes I’m yours sometimes I’m noone’s
Sometimes I swear for real that I feel bad about
Not giving you my whole life, instead giving you only these moments
Why is it so hard? Living is all about this
Living, it’s all about it. Why is is so hard?

When no one sees me
I can be or not be when no one’s see me
I put the world upside down
When no one sees me my skin doesn’t trap me
When no one sees me
I can be or not be
When no one sees me

I write to you from the dephts of my existence
From where the anxieties and the infinite essence arise
There are things so particularly yours that i don’t understand
And there are things so particular to me, but i don’t see them
I suppose i think i don’t have them
I don’t understand my life, the verses light up
In the darkness I can have you
I feel I don’t get it right
Don’t turn on the lights cause i’m baring
My soul and my body

When no one sees me
I can be or not be
When no one sees me
I resemble your skin
When no one sees me
I think about her too
When no one sees me
I can be or not be
When no one sees me
My skin is not the limit

Sometimes I get high, do a thousand twirls
I lock you in my eyes behind open doors
Sometimes i tell you why all the silence
Sometimes i’m yours and sometimes i belong to the wind
Sometimes to the wind
Sometimes to the time”


Music for My Heart

“All of my songs for you
All of my songs are sad
Whenever you wake at night you say
That all of your dreams were bad
Give me your tightest arm
Give me an I love you
I’ll stay awake all night
And blow your darker thoughts far from you…”

 


Music for My Heart


Teardrop

Who could make me suffer
more than you
the closet to me
the deepset in my heart?

Unweighted gestures
cut through the soul more
than the most sharp blade.
Streams of tears flow deep inside.

Trust is something more fragile
than a naive butterfly.
You have the freedom to crush it
but it will never get back to life.

“Water is my eye,
Most faithful mirror.
Fearless on my breath,
Teardrop on the fire,
I’ve a confession.
You’re stumbling a little.”


Music for My Heart

“You’re the night, Lilah. A little girl lost in the woods.
You’re a folk tale, the unexplainable

You’re a bedtime story. The one that keeps the curtains closed.
I hope you’re waiting for me cause I can make it on my own.
I can make it on my own.

It’s too dark to see the landmarks. I don’t want your good luck charms.
I hope you’re waiting for me across your carpet of stars.
You’re the night, Lilah. You’re everything that we can’t see.
Lilah, you’re the possibility.

You’re the bedtime story. The one that keeps the curtains closed.
And I hope you’re waiting for me cause I can make it on my own.
I can make it on my own.

Unknown the unlit world of old. You’re the sounds I never heard before.
Off the map where the wild things grow. Another world outside my door.
Here I stand I’m all alone. Drive me down the pitch black road.
Lilah you’re my only home and I can’t make it on my own.

You’re a bedtime story. The one that keeps the curtains closed.
And I hope you’re waiting for me cause I can make it on my own.
I can make it on my own.

You’re the paint can falling off the wall at the door that slams at the end of the hall where the kid rings sounds of basketball. The battle of the earth of the angels. The shifting snow drifts so realistic, so realistic – call you carpet of stars. See there is something in the yard. It’s awful dark. With the painted strings, the cross, the good luck charm, the prayer, the extra layer. The group… “


Nek – Tutto Di Te / All Of You

“I’d like not to stop kissing you
and do it hours and hours without making noise
inside an elevator or maybe here in front of a movie
and feel your hand touching me
slowly till reaching
to make as much love as my body can
and wake up in the morning
to see you naked there in the kitchen baby
and owe all of your breaths
all of your breaths, afterall

all of you
all of you
all of you
afterall, all of you

I’d like never to see you suffer
and i want to be able to say that life is beautiful
but it’s not long enough for who loves like me
i love and i can’t help it
thus you’re all i’m looking for
and i don’t care about the world outside
and it doesn’t exist anymore
i just hope i won’t hurt myself by dreaming, by dreaming
but i hope so much about every smile of yours
every breath of yours afterall

all of you
all of you
all of you
afterall all of you…only you
all of you
all of you
all of you
afterall, all of you

I don’t feel like talking anymore
words sometimes just make noise
i’d rather stay hours and hours together with you
with you with your hands
with you that relax
inside this hug full of emotion
to all it is already
and that will be.

To all of you
all of you
all of you
afterall all of you…only you
all of you
all of you
all of you
afterall, all of you…only of you”


Iris & Felicia Filip – Baby

“You didn’t know how lonely I was,
You hid your eyes from the very start,
Years pass by and life goes on,
I’m searching for you day and night, I’m searching for you,
But I know it’s in vain!

Baby, I know that you’re going to meet
A stranger who’ll take you to the fairy-tale house,
What a luck, what great bad luck
That time extinguishes everything,
But fire begets fire!
Give one more day of your life
To the man who used to tell you:

Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
Like a sunrise
After the hard night,
Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
You are the only love, only love, the last one…

Our shadow falls over the past,
There was no one like us when we met,
We will pretend, just like we did so far,
That everything is good, but we will be nothing more than smoke.
Give one more day of your life
To the man who used to tell you:

Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
Like a sunrise
After the hard night,
Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
You are the only love, only love, the last one…

It’s Fall in my life, everything’s burnt to ashes,
I knew you’ll leave, but let me tell you:

Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
Like a sunrise
After a hard night!
Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
Like a sunrise
After a hard night!

Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
You are the only love, only one, the last one even!
Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
Like a sunrise
After a hard night,
Baby, baby, baby, you will be mine,
You are the only love, only love, the last one!

You will be mine!”

Poets of the Fall – Diamonds for Tears

“In these days of manmade wonders we still bicker over flies
When you come seeking for forgiveness, I’ll be forced to choose my side

If I deny you what you’re searching, do I do it out of fear
Am I ruling out my reason, killing that which I hold dear

Out of my way I’m running, with an excuse just underway
Reality’s so daunting, and I’ve got no way to explain

Cos when you’re sleeping right next to me, I know you’re the one
So when I hear you calling my name, why do I turn away to run
I guess that’s why it’s raining diamonds, sweet happiness in tears
Crying heaven shed your diamonds, diamonds for tears

In the light of recent findings, there’s no greater taint than grace
But to relinquish all our bindings, always finds us out of place

If I rested here a while more, would you hold me to your heart
If I knew what it was meant for, will I know to play my part

Out of my way I’m leaving, another excuse before I’ll stay
Reality’s applauding, I know I don’t know the right way

Cos when you’re sleeping right next to me, I know you’re the one
So when I hear you calling my name, Yeah, I know you’re the one
I guess that’s why it’s raining diamonds, sweet happiness in tears
Crying heaven shed your diamonds, diamonds for tears

Is it a lost cause,
Can we overlook this taint
Are these the dead laws
Like a doubt eating the saint

And though I fear these shackles, like my darkness closing in
I will hold out my hands, I will hold out my hands

Cos when you’re sleeping right next to me, I know you’re the one
So when I hear you calling my name, I’ll know the good I’ve done
I guess that’s why it’s raining diamonds, sweet happiness in tears
Crying heaven shed your diamonds, diamonds for tears”


Music for My Heart

“I can tell by the look in your eyes you’ve been hurtin’
You know I’ll never let you down… oh no
And I’ll try anything to keep it workin’
You gave me time to find out
What my heart was lookin’ for
And what I’m feelin’ inside

In your eyes
I want to see your love again
In your eyes
I never want this feeling to end
It took some time to find the light
But now I realize
I can see the heaven in your eyes

Can’t you see I’m finding it hard to let go
Oooh at all the heartaches
We’ve been through
I never really thought I’d see this love grow
But you helped me see
Now I know what my heart’s been lookin’ for
And what I’m feeling inside

In your eyes
I want to see your love again
In your eyes
I never want this feeling to end
It took some time to find the light
But now I realize
I can see the heaven in your eyes

We’ve been livin’ on the edge
Where only the strong survive
We’ve been livin’ on the edge
And it’s something that we just can’t hide
Oh this feeling inside

In your eyes
I want to see your love again
In your eyes
I never want this feeling to end
It took some time to find the light
But now I realize
I can see the heaven in your eyes
Ooh yeah I can see the heaven in your eyes
Oh baby I can see the heaven in your eyes
Oooh yeah heaven in your eyes, heaven in your eyes
Oh heaven in your eyes, heaven in your eyes
I can see the heaven, heaven in your eyes, heaven in your eyes”


Sirenia – Fallen Angel

“Angels are simply extentions of truth upon the fabric of life

And there’s far more dark than light.”
