Hellos to everybody!

I’d propose to share favorite English songs here – as lyrics.

For ages I’d been listening to songs in English – w/o even understanding of set of words of them. What about you? Well, the melody, the performance, the personality of the singer – might gift a lot any way…

Now – I’d like we to talk about lyrics. The meaning of poems is never absolutely clear even in native language, but – we all are people, from the same Earth, let’s try – and share our ideas abt the real meaning of what we’re listening to.

I stand for the lyrics – are reflection of feelings of the author… the only rhymed strings of words – it’s very suspicious (to be empty)… well, when the author acts as a prophecy maker – it might be very risky also, as that time the source might be in feelings (good), but as well it might be simply in “rhyme machine” of the author (jуst empty again)…

Let’s start then… and – may I not to be too serious? smile.gif the same about you smile.gif – not about cases when we must be serious! – and let each other the right to announce about some songs – FOR QUITE SERIOUS CONSIDERATION ONLY! – or opposite: TO BE AS FUN AS POSSIBLE!

-------------------------------------------------------------------

It’s Probably Me
by Sting, Michael Kamen and Eric Clapton


If the night turned cold and the stars looked down
And you hug yourself on the cold cold ground.
You wake the morning in a stranger's coat,
No one would you see.
You ask yourself, who'd watch for me?
My only friend, who could it be?
It's hard to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me.

When your belly's empty and the hunger's so real
And you're too proud to beg and too dumb to steal,
You search the city for your only friend,
No one would you see.
You ask yourself, who'd watch for me?
A solitary voice to speak out and set me free.
I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me.

You're not the easiest person I ever got to know
And it's hard for us both to let our feelings show.
Some would say I should let you go your way,
You'll only make me cry.
But if there's one guy, jуst one guy
Who'd lay down his life for you and die,
I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me.

When the world's gone crazy and it makes no sense
And there's only one voice that comes to your defense.
The jury's out and your eyes search the room
And one friendly face is all you need to see.
And if there's one guy, jуst one guy
Who'd lay down his life for you and die,
I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me.

I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me...

I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me...

I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me...

I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me...

I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me...

I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me...

I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me...

I hate to say it, I hate to say it, but it's probably me...

-------------------------------------------------------------------

A very pretty song – what do they sing here about?

( A ) the hero is a guy concerned about some friend of his – so deep that he’s even ready “lay down his life” for him… well, the reflection of mine says me:

– men are involved in so many relations, which keep ones alive for them – parents, family, friends, society – and simply “love to life”
– to drop all the above said out and stand for one friend only – it needs special feelings, some great ones…

( B ) the hero is a girlfriend of the mentioned in the song a person being in different situations of difficulties, “dire straits”;

- well, the girls are generally supposed to leave their families sometimes, to follow her favorite, her husband…
- they are faithful and support her friend as much as possible…

( C ) the hero is a mother of the mentioned person;

- mothers do anything for their children…
- but if there are many children? – might a mother die for only one of them and forget about others?

( D ) the hero is a father of the mentioned person;

- with all the good words to fathers, there is always a shadow of probability & hesitation – the son / daughter isn’t your descendant…

( E ) the hero is Son of God – one, who did died for people once…

- to see his face when you have hard time – it’d be of great support…

The verdict of mine is going to be – the hero of the song is a father of person in dire straits; he always repeats:

It's hard to say it
I hate to say it,
but it's probably me

---

What do you say? – or share smth else, if you please smile.gif

Well… before everything I’d like to beg pardon of all the people, which feel the songs in this topic some special way – were touched deeply by the song itself… you were kissed the very first time in life and this song sounded this time… it is a soundtrack of your favorite movie… you’re fond of singer etc. etc. – believe me, I never intend to … trouble anybody here – jуst to try and find out smth about the meaning of the song the available way…

I cannot say my horizons are large – I didn’t listen to everything, neither I read all about all the singers, nor I watched all their concerts, movies, clips etc. etc. – frankly speaking – nobody did... – so, no educational deadlocks… OK? – my invitations to all of you smile.gif

I’m never going to lay final DOT at anywhere – the discussion forever smile.gif

Let’s go ahead!...

Whitney Houston - I Will Always Love You

( 1 )

If I should stay
I would only be in your way
So I'll go, but I know
I'll think of you every step of the way

Chorus:

And I will always love you
I, will always love you

You, my darling you, you

( 2 )

Bitter sweet memories
That is all I'm taking with me
So goodbye, please don't cry
We both know I'm not what you need

Chorus

And I will always love you
I, will always love you

( 3 )

I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you dreamed off
And I wish to you joy and happiness
But above all this I wish to you love

Chorus

And I will always love you
I, will always love you

I, will always love you
I, will always love you
I, will always love you
I, will always love you

Рэмыч, хэло!

я так понял делимся любимой лирикой на английском

моя любимая група - "ТУЛ"

вот лирика, Рэмыч, сделай для меня летиратурный перевод, ок? я в принцыпе знаю все слова, но вот интепретировать можно их тексты по разному.
прикольно: даже в сети существуют разночтения в точном английском тексте.

вот одна из моих самых любимых кампазиций : Джамби

Here from the king's mountain view;
Here from the wild dream come true -
Feast like a sultan, I do,
on treasures and flesh, never few.

But I, I would wish it all away
if I, thought I'd, lose you
jуst one day

The devil and his had me down,
in love with the dark side I'd found.

Dabbling all the way down.
Up to my neck;
Soon to drown

But you,
changed that all for me,
lifted me up, turned me 'round.
So I
I
I
I
I would
I would
I would
Wish this all away

Prayed like a martyr dusk til dawn
Begged like a hooker all night long
Tempted the devil with my song
And got what I wanted all along

But I
and I would
If I could,
then, I would
Wish it away
Wish it away
Wish it all away
Wanna wish it all away
No pressure could hold, sway,
or justify my kneeling away my center

So if I could I'd wish it all away,
if I thought tomorrow
would take you away.
You're my peace of mind, my all.
I said, I'm jуst trying to hold on
one more day

Damn my eyes
Damm my eyes

Damn my eyes, if they should
compromise our fulcrum;
Want and need divide me
Then I might as well be gone

Shine on forever
Shine on benevolent son

Shine down upon the broken
Shine until the two become one

Shine on forever
Shine on benevolent son

Shine down upon the severed
Shine until the two become one

Divided I wither away
Divided I wither away

Shine down upon the many
Light our way
Benevolent son

Breathe in union
Breathe in union
Breathe in union
Breathe in union
Breathe in union
So, as one, survive
another day and season.

Silence leech, and save your poison,
Silence leech, and stay out of my way!

Bluebird
(Paul McCartney)


Late at night when the wind is still
I'll come flying through your door,
And you'll know what love is for.

l'm a bluebird, I'm a bluebird
I'm a bluebird, l'm a bluebird

Touch your lips with a magic kiss
And you'll be a bluebird too,
And you'll know what love can do.

l'm a bluebird, I'm a bluebird
l'm a bluebird, l'm a bluebird


Fly away through the midnight air
As we head across the sea,
And at last we will be free.


You're a bluebird, You're a bluebird,
You're a bluebird, You're a bluebird

All alone on a desert island
We're living in the trees,
And we're flying in the breeze.

We're the bluebirds, We're the bluebirds
We're the bluebirds, We're the bluebirds

Marillion. Hogarth

Ocean Cloud
He's seen too much of life
And there's no going back
The loneliness calls him
And the edge which must be sharpened
He's losing it. And he knows.
But there's a fighter in his mind and his body's tough
The years have been unkind but kind enough
The smell of the earth
It's his favourite smell
But he's somehow compelled to the stinging salt hell
To the place where he hurts and he's scared
And there's no one to tell
And no one who doesn't listen

"You can take all the boys and the girls in the world
And I'll trade them this morning for my sweet Ocean Cloud
I've seen too much of life
So the sea is my wife and a sweet Ocean Cloud is a mistress I'm allowed
for now."

"You can take all the boys and the girls in the world
I wouldn't trade them this morning for my sweet Ocean Cloud
I've seen too much of life
So the sea is my wife and a sweet ocean cloud is a mistress I'm allowed
for now."

"Only me and the sea
We will do as we please."

He remembers the day he was marched to the front
By the physical knuckle head teacher of games
"Look lads" he declared, "This boy's a cream puff
No guts and no muscles
No spine and no stuffing"
The whole schoolroom sniggered
And silently thanked God it wasn't them..

But time is revenge. All the bullies grow weak
And must live with faithless women who despise them
I'll be in Barbados in a couple of weeks
With a rum on the table and yarns by the yard
A story to tell and a story to save
..unless she changes her mind
I'll trade them this morning for my sweet Ocean Cloud
I've seen to much of life so the sea is my wife
And the sweet ocean clouds will look down on my boat tonight

The wind changed
I felt it run beneath my ear
Like silk drawn across my neck
A dream of your legs
Defying gravity in love

The medium wave
Brought signals here from far away
Your tender voice riding on the sea spray
Something in the air
For those who know the signs
Something in the air
A storm..

When I was alive
When I was alive
Don't wanna remember
When I was alive

Watch me watch me
Paint this picture
Stretchin Hurtin Cursin
Watch me
Takin it Takin it Takin it Takin it....
Watch me. Watch me. God above..

Between two planets
In between the points of light
Between two distant shorelines
Here am I

Between two planets
In the black daylight of space
Between two heavenly bodies
The invisible man.
Ripping out the radio
I want to be alone

"You can take all the boys and the girls in the world
I wouldn't trade them this morning for my sweet Ocean Cloud
I've seen too much of life
So the sea is my wife and a sweet Ocean Cloud is a mistress I'm allowed
I've seen too much of life
So the sea is my wife
And the sweet ocean clouds will look down on my bones tonight..

Well… I couldn’t recall the song before I’ve re-listened to mp3… but – paradox – I enjoyed the lyrics much more than when it sounded… yes – I know this song from the childhood also – w/o understanding… paradox… reading the poem gives me much more romantic pictures, images, development… sorry, Sir Paul… sorry Irene… sorry everybody… so pretty & clear & transparent the poem – no special efforts to understand & imagine the happy blue birds on the fly… happy people – brilliant! – Sir Paul was greatly fond of Mrs Linda…

Any other opinions?...

Dark side of the moon. Y wish the illusion could lasted for years.

Oscar Benton
Not The Same Dreams Anymore

Our honeymoon is over
And the best days of our love
Are dead and gone
Instead of growing closer
This time goes on and on
We're getting miles apart
Though you're beside me as before
And when we kiss goodnight I find...

...That since we're sharing the same bed
We're not sharing the same dreams
Anymore
That since we're sharing the same bed
We're not sharing the same dreams
Anymore

We're using the same bathroom
Where your personal things
Are lying close to mine
And I know that our clothes
Are drying on the same line
When friends come to call
They read our names on the door
If they could read our minds, they'd find...

...That since we're sharing the same bed
We're not sharing the same dreams
Anymore
That since we're sharing the same bed
We're not sharing the same dream(s)
Anymore

(We're) talking about problems
But we keep our feelings deep inside
We never say a tender word
We couldn't even if we tried
It's hard to realize you're the girl
I've been waiting for
'Cause when we kiss goodnight I find...

...That since we're sharing the same bed
We're not sharing the same dreams
Anymore
That since we're sharing the same bed
We're not sharing the same dreams
Anymore

"Marcha Dos Pescadores"( Генералы песчаных карьеров по-нашему)
Dorrival Caymmi

Minha jangada vai sair p’ro mar
Vou trabalhar, meu bem-querer
Se Deus quiser quando eu voltar do mar
um peixe bom eu vou trazer
Meus companheiros também vão voltar
E a Deus do céu vamos agradecer

A estrela d'alva me acompanha
iluminando o meu caminho
Eu sei que nunca estou sozinho
pois tem alguém que esta pensando em mim.

Did you get it...

Gallows Pole.

Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while,
Think I see my friends coming, Riding a many mile.
Friends, did you get some silver?
Did you get a little gold?
What did you bring me, my dear friends, To keep me from the Gallows Pole?
What did you bring me to keep me from the Gallows Pole?

I couldn't get no silver, I couldn't get no gold,
You know that we're too damn poor to keep you from the Gallows Pole.
Hangman, hangman, hold it a little while,
I think I see my brother coming, riding a many mile.
Brother, did you get me some silver?
Did you get a little gold?
What did you bring me, my brother, to keep me from the Gallows Pole?

Brother, I brought you some silver,
I brought a little gold, I brought a little of everything
To keep you from the Gallows Pole.
Yes, I brought you to keep you from the Gallows Pole.

Hangman, hangman, turn your head awhile,
I think I see my sister coming, riding a many mile, mile, mile.
Sister, I implore you, take him by the hand,
Take him to some shady bower, save me from the wrath of this man,
Please take him, save me from the wrath of this man, man.

Hangman, hangman, upon your face a smile,
Pray tell me that I'm free to ride,
Ride for many mile, mile, mile.

Oh, yes, you got a fine sister, She warmed my blood from cold,
Brought my blood to boiling hot To keep you from the Gallows Pole,
Your brother brought me silver, Your sister warmed my soul,
But now I laugh and pull so hard And see you swinging on the Gallows Pole

Swingin' on the gallows pole!
