The Fools Who Dream

Esta é um brinde a nós que ainda sonhamos, “The fools who dream”…A letra podem ver no vídeo ou ali abaixo escrita em bloco. (By the way, pequeno detalhe, esta pérola de música foi indicada para Óscar de melhor música original…)

Letra em tradução literal para Português:

A minha Tia costumava viver em Paris, eu lembro, ela costumava chegar a casa e contar-nos histórias sobre a vida lá fora. E eu recordo que ela contou-nos que saltou uma vez para um rio, descalça.

Ela sorriu

Saltou, sem olhar / E caiu no Sena/ A água era gelada/ Ela passou um mês a espirrar/ Mas diz que faria tudo de novo

Esta é para os que sonham/ Por mais tolos que pareçam/ Esta é para os corações que ardem/ Esta é para o estrago que fazemos

Ela apanhou um sentimento/ Céu sem tecto/ Pôr do sol dentro de uma moldura

Ela vivia na bebida/ E morreu num sopro / Eu vou sempre lembrar a chama

Esta é para os que sonham/ Por mais tolos que pareçam/ Esta é para os corações que ardem/ Esta é para o estrago que fazemos

Ela disse-me / “Um pouco de loucura é chave / Para dar-nos novas cores a ver/ Quem sabe onde nos levará? / E é por isso que eles precisam de nós”

Então tragam rebeldes / ondulação dos seixos / Os Pintores, e poetas e peças

E esta é para os tolos que sonham/ Por mais tolos que pareçam/ Esta é para os corações que se quebram/ Esta é para o estrago que fazemos

Eu volto atrás até lá / Ela, e a neve, e o Sena / Sorrindo por isso / Ela disse que o faria de novo.

Lyrics English (Original):

My aunt used to live in Paris
I remember, she used to come home and tell us these stories about being abroad
And I remember she told us that she jumped into the river once, barefoot

She smiled

Leapt, without looking / And tumbled into the Seine / The water was freezing / She spent a month sneezing / But said she would do it again

Here’s to the ones who dream / Foolish as they may seem /Here’s to the hearts that ache / Here’s to the mess we make

She captured a feeling/ Sky with no ceiling / The sunset inside a frame

She lived in her liquor / And died with a flicker / I’ll always remember the flame

Here’s to the ones who dream/ Foolish as they may seem /Here’s to the hearts that ache /Here’s to the mess we make

She told me
“A bit of madness is key / To give us new colors to see /Who knows where it will lead us? /And that’s why they need us”

So bring on the rebels / The ripples from pebbles / The painters, and poets, and plays

And here’s to the fools who dream /Crazy as they may seem /Here’s to the hearts that break 7Here’s to the mess we make

I trace it all back to then / Her, and the snow, and the Seine /Smiling through it /She said she’d do it again

Bandas Sonoras brilhantes

Acho que é do conhecimento geral a minha paixão assolapada por bandas sonoras. Este apanhado é pura e simplesmente brilhante. Podia ter sido retirado de uma cerimónia dos oscares.  Muito bonito. 🙂

No meu carro hoje tocava  Amanda Ghost, Cellophane (OST do filme Sweet November).

“Nobody moves me
I’ve been through this life with no place that I can call my own.Thinking above me
I never seem to find anybody that can feel like home
And I try and I try and I try.
Funny how it feels when there’s nothing to say.
Trapped with my ideals I can’t contain
I’m wrapped in cellophane.
Nobody told me obsessive needs were always following me around
And you can’t ignore me.
Look at my face and then tell me my place in town
And he’s in and she’s in and he’s in and she’s in
And I try and I try and he’s in and she’s in and he’s in and she’s in.”

Mas também gosto muito desta, em especial da música que ocupa o 8º lugar:08: The Illusionist – The Orange Tree, by Philip Glass.

21 guns

21 Guns

Green Day

“Do you know what’s worth fighting for,
When it’s not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away
And you feel yourself suffocating?
Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart inside?
You’re in ruins.

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,
You and I

When you’re at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Your faith walks on broken glass
And the hangover doesn’t pass
Nothing’s ever built to last
You’re in ruins.

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky,
You and I

Did you try to live on your own
When you burned down the house and home?
Did you stand too close to the fire?
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone

When it’s time to live and let die
And you can’t get another try
Something inside this heart has died
You’re in ruins.

One, 21 guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 guns
Throw up your arms into the sky (x2)

you and I. “

(Not a) Bad Day

A porta fecha-se e sinto-me assim… hmmmpff… Vem-me uma música á cabeça…Hoje foi um bom dia e amanhã vai ser melhor, porque amanhã está mais perto dos meus planos e cada vez mais distante dos dias maus.

Where is the moment we needed the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
You tell me your blue skies fade to grey
You tell me your passion’s gone away
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You’re faking a smile with the coffee to go
You tell me your life’s been way off line
You’re falling to pieces everytime
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

Because you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Well, you need a blue sky holiday
The point is they laugh at what you say
And I don’t need no carryin’ on

You had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don’t lie
You’re coming back down and you really don’t mind
You had a bad day

(Oh.. Holiday..)

Sometimes the system goes on the blink
And the whole thing turns out wrong
You might not make it back and you know
That you could be well oh that strong
And I’m not wrong (ahhh…)

So where is the passion when you need it the most
Oh, you and I
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost

‘Cause you had a bad day
You’re taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don’t know
You tell me don’t lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You’ve seen what you like
And how does it feel for one more time
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

ps. Hoje é dia 1/11/09. Hoje, ontem, antes de ontem e quase todos os dias sinto a vossa falta. Hoje em especial, todos os anos, sinto a vossa falta. Queria poder mostrar a pessoa que sou e a que um dia ainda serei… e sinto a vossa falta.

Até um dia, não já… um dia.

Save Tonight

“Save tonight
And fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow
Tomorrow I’ll be gone

There’s a log on the fire
And it burns like me for you
Tomorrow comes with one desire
To take me away….it’s true
It ain’t easy to say goodbye
Darling please don’t start cry
‘Cause girl you know I’ve got to go
Lord I wish it wasn’t so”

The Boy Does Nothing

“Does he wash up? Never wash up
Does he clean up? No, he never cleans up
Does he brush up? Never brushed up
He does nothing, the boy does nothing

And if the man can’t dance
He gets no second chance”

 

Musiquinha gira.

Óh filho, ou sabes fazer alguma coisa, ou põe-te a milhas! Quanto mais não seja dançar, até porque um tipo que sabe dançar, é sempre outra história!

 

ps. Hoje já atropelei dois tipos com o carrinho das compras. Deve ser daí que vem o sentido de humor sádico.

It’s a beautiful lie…

It’s time to forget about the past
To wash away what happened last
Hide behind an empty face
Don’t have too much to say
That this is just a game

It’s a beautiful lie
It’s a perfect deny
Such a beautiful lie to believe in
So beautiful, beautiful that makes me

Everyone’s looking at me
I’m running around in circles, babe
A quiet desperation’s building higher
I’ve got to remember this is just a game

Need Some Sleep

I need some sleep
It can’t go on like this
I tried counting sheep
But there’s one I always miss
Everyone says I’m getting down too low
Everyone says you just gotta let it go
You just gotta let it go
You just gotta let it go

I need some sleep
Time to put the old horse down
I’m in too deep
And the wheels keep spinning ’round
Everyone says I’m getting’ down too low
Everyone says you just gotta let it go
You just gotta let it go
You just gotta let it go

You just gotta let it go

Paredes

São as quatro paredes. É isso que me faz confusão.

Tenho um sono desmedido e não durmo. São as paredes. Estas malditas paredes. É por pouco tempo, penso.

A quem é que eu quero enganar. Vai continuar tudo na mesma! A não ser… não. Não vale a pena. Dou demasiada importância ao que me rodeia, ainda para mais quando são paredes. Duras…

O que fiz eu dos meus sonhos? Onde andam eles? Fugiram sem rasto e sem deixar um recado, mínimo, duas palavras…uma. Adeus.

Pára e pensa. Querias fazer o quê? Ser o quê? Estar onde?

Sabes, não sabes? Sabes pois. Mais que ninguém, tu sabes. Trocaste os animais pelas pessoas, a luta pela facilidade, a cidade pelo monte… vendeste os teus sonhos por causa das paredes.

Malditas paredes.

Continuo a dormir no sofá. Há semanas que não consigo dormir em quartos. São as paredes. Não deixam que o sono chegue.

Só o sofá. Só ele me deixa fundir e esquecer que desisti. Os meus sonhos.

Eram perfeitos. Todos. Eram perfeitos.

Porque é que eu não lutei? Porque raio me faltou aquele abraço apertado.

Porque é que desisti antes de tentar?

Continua a culpar as paredes e a deixar-te entristecer e lamentar… idiota. Só as vais alimentar mais, para que ao contrário dos teus sonhos, eles e elas cresçam como barreiras e te sufoquem, dia após dia.

Malditas…

Maldita , eu, e o raio dos sonhos…

Dream on girl, dream on girl
I want to see you sleep tonight
You’re up and down
You hit the ground
And time is drifting through your fears

I can’t find your dreams tonight
And make your lover come back home
If you don’t know, you are on your own
I’ll choose the best place for your sleep

Come back to see the day
You lost your heart and all your hopes
I’ll take you to see the sunrise
And try to catch your ghost
, oh

Come on girl, a dream is your world
The signs you see are in your mind
The words that you speak, are here in my ear
So I can hear you falling down

Take a breath to see me
I can wait for you to
Live a live with no hopes but
If you still believe

Come back to see the day
You lost your heart and all your hopes
I’ll take you to see the sunrise
And try to catch your ghost, oh
