Bookstore by St. Thomas

Posted in Uncategorized by marblesea on June 30, 2010

I walked down to the bookstore
To find myself a book 
Hoped to find some answers 
Questions are difficult 
I asked the counter 
What do you have for me 
Hoped to find some answers 
Questions are diffcult 

And I walked home empty-handed 
Nothing under my arm 
I think that I am stranded 
I won’t do any harm 

I walked down to the bookstore 
To find myself a book 
Hoped to find some answers 
Questions are difficult

What do you have for me 
Hoped to find some answers 
Questions are diffuclt 

And I walked home empty-handed 
Nothing under my arm 
I think that I am stranded 
I won’t do any harm 
And I walked home empty-handed 
Nothing under my arm 
I think that I am stranded 
I won’t do any harm

La Vie En Rose by Édith Piaf

Posted in Uncategorized by marblesea on June 29, 2010

Des yeux qui font baisser les miens,
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche,
Voilà le portrait sans retouche
De l’homme auquel j’appartiens

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas,
Je vois la vie en rose.

Il me dit des mots d’amour,
Des mots de tous les jours,
Et ça me fait quelque chose.

Il est entré dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause.

C’est lui pour moi. Moi pour lui
Dans la vie,
Il me l’a dit, l’a juré pour la vie.

Et dès que je l’aperçois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat

Des nuits d’amour à plus finir
Un grand bonheur qui prend sa place
Les ennuis les chagrins s’effacent
Heureux, heureux à en mourir.

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas,
Je vois la vie en rose.

Il me dit des mots d’amour,
Des mots de tous les jours,
Et ça me fait quelque chose.

Il est entré dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause.

C’est toi pour moi. Moi pour toi
Dans la vie,
Il me l’a dit, l’a juré pour la vie.

Et dès que je l’aperçois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat

{English Lyrics}

Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose

When you kiss me heaven sighs
And tho I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose

When you press me to your heart
I’m in a world apart
A world where roses bloom

And when you speak…angels sing from above
Everyday words seem…to turn into love songs

Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose

Black Swan by Thom Yorke

Posted in Uncategorized by marblesea on June 28, 2010

What will grow crooked, you can’t make straight
It’s the price that you gotta pay 
Do yourself a favour and pack your bags 
Buy a ticket and get on the train 
Buy a ticket and get on the train 

Cause this is fucked up, fucked up 
Cause this is fucked up, fucked up 

People get crushed like biscuit crumbs 
And lay down in the bitumen 
You have tried your best to please everyone 
But it just isn’t happenin 
No, it just isn’t happenin 

And that is fucked up, fucked up 
And this is fucked up, fucked up 
This your blind spot, blind spot 
It should be obvious, but it’s not. 
But it isn’t, but it isn’t 

You cannot kickstart a dead horse 
You just crush yourself and walk away 
I don’t care what the future holds 
‘Cause I’m right in your arms today 
With your fingers you can touch me 

I am your black swan, black swan 
But I made it to the top, but I made it to the top
And this is fucked up, fucked up 

You are fucked up, fucked up 
This is fucked up, fucked up 

Be your black swan, black swan 
I’m for spare parts, broken up

La Mer by Charles Trenet

Posted in Uncategorized by marblesea on June 28, 2010

La mer
Qu’on voit danser le long des golfes clairs
A des reflets d’argent
La mer
Des reflets changeants sous la pluie

La mer
Au ciel d’été confond
Ses blancs moutons
Avec les anges si purs
La mer bergère d’azur infinie

Voyez
Près des étangs
Ces grands roseaux mouillés
Voyez
Ces oiseaux blancs et ces maisons rouillées

La mer
Les a bercés
Le long des golfes clairs
Et d’une chanson d’amour
La mer
A bercé mon coeur pour la vie

Somewhere Beyond The Sea (English)

Somewhere beyond the sea,
Somewhere waiting for me,
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailing. 

Somewhere beyond the sea,
She’s there waiting for me.
If I could fly like birds on high,
Then straight to her arms I’d go sailing. 

It’s far beyond a star,
It’s near beyond the moon.
I know beyond a doubt
My heart will lead me there soon. 

We’ll meet beyond the shore.
We’ll kiss just as before.
Happy we’ll be beyond the sea,
And never again I’ll go sailing.

All Nighter by Elastica

Posted in Uncategorized by marblesea on June 27, 2010

It`s nearly eleven
Do you think we`ll stand the test of time
You`re a cloud short of heaven
But you know i want you to be mine
Am i sitting here waiting
Yeah, and it`s getting frustrating

Got to go to the garage
Got to get some fags and make some tea
Can you lend me enough wedge
Do you want to walk up there with me
And i`m sitting here waiting
Yeah, i`m tired of debating

We`ve been up all night
I can feel a strange attraction
Now it`s getting light
But i can`t spur you into action
Sure not alone
But so on my own, oh.

It`s a quarter to seven
Don`t you think we`ve stayed up half the night
You`re a cloud short of heaven
But i`d love to see you strut your stuff
And i`m sitting here waiting
Yeah, and it could be x-rated
We could be oh so happy,
We could be oh so happy

I Wish I Were In Love Again by Joni Mitchell

Posted in Uncategorized by marblesea on June 25, 2010

The sleepless nights – the daily fights
The quick toboggan – when you reach the heights
I miss the kisses – and I miss the bites
I wish I were in love again

The broken dates – the endless waits
The lovely loving – and the hateful hates
The conversation – with the flying plates
I wish I were in love again

No more pain – no more strain
Now I’m sane – but I would rather be punch drunk

The pulled out fur – of cat and cur
The fine mismating – of a him and her
I’ve learned my lesson – but I wish I were
In love again

The furtive sigh – the blackened eye
The words: “i love you – ’til the day I day”
The self deception – that believes the lie
I wish I were in love again

When love congeals – it soon reveals
The faint aroma – of performing seals
The double-crossing – of a pair of heals
I wish I were in love again

No, no more care – no, no despair
Now I’m all there (now) – but I’d rather be punch drunk

Believe me sir – I much prefer
The classic battle – of a him and her
I don’t like quiet – and I wish I were
In love again – in love again – in love again

Approaching Lavender by Gordon Lightfoot

Posted in Uncategorized by marblesea on June 24, 2010

If you’d like to spend the afternoon approaching lavender
You’ll feel just fine but one thing’s sure
You’ll never be the same
If you’d like to try your hand at understanding lavender
Then you must be very sure
That life is not a game 
You might even learn a thing or two approaching lavender
You’ll soon be on a one night tour
Forgetting your own name
You won’t need a reason just to be alone with lavender
For the light so warm and pure
Will draw you like a flame 

The colors that surround you there will be the shade of lavender
Shadows dancing everywhere
Like flowers in the rain
You will find your tongue’s on fire while lying next to lavender
With words you never spoke before
And will not speak again 

Oh sweet lavender I understand you perfectly
There is no way that I can see
You living by yourself
Oh sweet lavendar I must be with you constantly
Your presence means so much to me
Much more that life itself 

Oh sweet lavender as fragrant as the name you bear
Please cast away the clothes you wear
And give your love to me
Oh sweet lavender your smile is like the golden sun
I’d love to see you laugh and run
As naked as the sea 

If you’d like to spend the afternoon approaching lavender
Don’t try and get the best of her
She will not share the blame
If you’d like to try your hand at understanding lavender
Then you must be very sure
That life is not a game
There is no shame

Afternoon Tea by The Kinks

Posted in Uncategorized by marblesea on June 23, 2010

Tea time won’t be the same without my Donna
At night I lie awake and dream of Donna
I think about that small cafe
That’s where we used to meet each day
And then we used to sit a while
And drink our afternoon tea

I’ll take afternoon tea (afternoon tea)
If you take it with me (afternoon tea)
You take as long as you like
‘Cause I like you, girl

I take sugar with tea (afternoon tea)
You take milk if you please (afternoon tea)
Like you talking to me
Because you ease my mind

Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)

Tea time still ain’t the same without my Donna
At night I lie awake and dream of Donna
I went to our cafe one day
They said that Donna walked away
You’d think at least she might have stayed
To drink her afternoon tea

I’ll take afternoon tea (afternoon tea)
If you take it with me (afternoon tea)
You take as long as you like
‘Cause I like you, girl

I take afternoon tea (afternoon tea)
Every day of the week (afternoon tea)
Please come along if you like
Because I like you, girl

Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba (afternoon tea)

The Rainbow Connection by Kermit the Frog

Posted in Uncategorized by marblesea on June 22, 2010

Why are there so many
Songs about rainbows
And what’s on the other side
Rainbow’s are visions
They’re only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide
So we’ve been told and some chose to
Believe it
But I know they’re wrong wait and see

Someday we’ll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

Who said that every wish
Would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it
And look what it’s done so far
What’s so amazing
That keeps us star gazing
What so we think we might see

Someday we’ll find it
That Rainbow Connection
The lovers the dreamers and me

Have you been half asleep
And have you heard voices
I’ve heard them calling my name
Are these the sweet sounds that called
The young sailors
I think they’re one and the same
I’ve heard it too many times to ignore it
There’s something that I’m supposed to be

Someday we’ll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Accept Yourself by The Smiths

Posted in Uncategorized by marblesea on June 21, 2010

Every day you must say
So, how do I feel about my life ?
Anything is hard to find
When you will not open your eyes
When will you accept yourself ?
I am sick and I am dull
And I am plain
How dearly I’d love to get carried away
Oh, but dreams have a knack of just not coming true
And time is against me now…oh
Oh, who and what to blame ?
Oh, anything is hard to find
When you will not open your eyes
When will you accept yourself, for heaven’s sake ?
Anything is hard to find
When you will not open your eyes
Every day you must say
Oh, how do I feel about the past ?
Others conquered love – but I ran
I sat in my room and I drew up a plan
Oh, but plans can fall through (as so often they do)
And time is against me now…

And there’s no-one left to blame
Oh, tell me when will you …
When will you accept your life ?
(The one that you hate)
For anything is hard to find
When you will not open your eyes
Every day you must say
Oh, how do I feel about my shoes ?
They make me awkward and plain
How dearly I would love to kick with the fray …
But I once had a dream (and it never came true)
And time is against me now…
Time is against me now…
And there’s no one but yourself to blame
Oh, anything is hard to find
When you will not open your eyes
Anything is hard to find; for heaven’s sake !
Anything is hard to find
When you will not open your eyes
When will you accept yourself ?
When ?
When ?
When ?
When ?
