Crystalised (The XX)

28 julio, 2017

…So don’t think that I’m pushing you away
When you’re the one that I’ve kept closest…

Crystalised (letra / lyrics)

You’ve applied the pressure
To have me crystalised
And you’ve got the faith
That I can bring paradise

I’ll forgive and forget
Before I’m paralyzed
Do I have to keep up the pace
To keep you satisfied

Things have gotten closer to the sun
And I’ve done things in small doses
So don’t think that I’m pushing you away
When you’re the one that I’ve kept closest

You don’t move slow
Taking steps in my direction
The sound resounds, echo
Does it lessen your affection
No

You say I’m foolish
For pushing this aside
But burn down our home
I won’t leave alive

Glaciers have melted to the sea
I wish the tide would take me over
I’ve been down on my knees
And you just keep on getting closer

Good Job Baby (Work – Morgan)

27 julio, 2017

“Was not as easy as it seemed”…

Work (letra / lyrics)

Once I was a queen and then I lost my crown
They tried to wash my brain but lost their battle against my wall
They tried to steal my soul, they tried to break my heart
They tried to make a hole into my precious mind
They almost messed my life, they told a lot of lies
I can remember all their eyes waiting to see me fall

I’ve been waiting too long but I can finally say
“You were all wrong”
Was not as easy as it seemed
Then I managed to shout
And after I found my crown I thought “Good job baby”
The work is all done

Now I can shout louder
Now that I feel stronger
Then I could be better
I am the queen that I used to be
‘Cause there’s nothing like seeing no one in the mirror
And after being nobody become a little warrior

I’ve been waiting too long but I can finally say
“You were all wrong”
Was not as easy as it seemed
Then I managed to shout
And after I found my crown I thought “Good job baby”
The work is all done

I’ve been waiting too long but I can finally say
“You were all wrong”
Was not as easy as it seemed
Then I managed to shout
And after I found my crown I thought “Good job baby”
The work is all done

I am game

6 julio, 2017

I don’t know (letra / lyrics)

I don’t know what you smoke
Or what countries you’ve been to
If you speak any other languages other than your own
I’d like to meet you

I don’t know if you can drive
If you love the ground beneath you
I don’t know if you write letters or panic on the phone
I’d like to call you

All the same, I would want to
I am game

I don’t know if you can swim
If the sea has any draw for you
If you’re better in the morning or when the sun goes down
I’d like to call you

I don’t know if you can dance
If the thought ever occurred to you
If you eat what you’ve been given or push it ‘round your plate
I’d like to cook for you

All the same, If you want to
I am game

If you walk my way
I could keep my head
We will feel our way
through the dark
Or maybe not
We could shoot it down anyway

I don’t know if you read novels or the magazines
If you love the hand that feeds you
I assume that your heart’s been bruised
I’d like to know you

You don’t know if I can draw at all
Or what records I am into
If I sleep like a spoon or rarely at all
Or maybe you would do
Or maybe you would do

If you walk my way
I will keep my head
We will feel our way
Through the dark
Though I don’t know you I think that I would do
I don’t fall easy at all

If you walk my way
I will keep my head
We will feel our way
Through the dark
Though I don’t know you I think that I would do
I don’t fall easy at all

Por el camino yo me entretengo… 10 años del blog!!

21 junio, 2017

¿Qué podemos tener en común en este blog con Lana del Rey, Manu Chao, Jaime Urrutia, John Paul Young…? Ellos se dedican a la música sí…
Pues parafraseando a Kiko Veneno: Señoras y señores sepan ustedes que todos comparten fecha de nacimiento con este blog. Sí, sí. Todos nacieron un 21 de junio (hay más: Kevin Johansen, Dario Marianelli, Guille Martín… -que no se enfade Leticia Sabater por no incluirla en este selecto club a pesar de compartir también fecha, jaja-).

Y sí, han pasado diez años desde aquel Día de la Música, como hoy, en que este sitio vio la luz, con Damien Rice sonando… como hoy…

Yo no sé quien soy ni lo pretendiera… Pero señoras y señores sepan ustedes que yo intenciones tengo de seguir por aquí o muy cerca otros diez años más…

Vola volando voy… volando vengo vengo…

Creep (letra / lyrics)

When you were here before
I couldn’t look you in the eye
You’re just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You’re so very special

But I’m a creep
I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here

I don’t care if it hurts
I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice
When I’m not around
You’re so very special
I wish I was special

But I’m a creep
I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here

She’s running out
She’s running out, run…
She run…

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You’re so very special
I wish I was special

But I’m a creep
I’m a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don’t belong here
I don’t belong here

Día Mundial de los Refugiados 2017 (20 Junio)

20 junio, 2017

Valga un recordatorio porque hoy que es el “día oficial”
Ojalá consideremos un poco que todos los días deberían ser este día… hablamos de personas…

Siria es uno de los puntos calientes en este sentido hoy en día. Curiosamente cuando visité Siria me topé con una manifestación “en favor” de los refugiados palestinos, reclamando su derecho a retornar a su tierra… Entonces seguro que no imaginaban que ellos mismos tendrían que dejar Siria atrás poco después, salir en tropel…

Como comunidad internacional… ¿cuando vamos a asumir un papel real que acabe con la guerra?
Como país… ¿cuando vamos a cumplir los compromisos adquiridos con ellos?
Como persona… ¿cuando voy a tener presente estas realidades hasta el punto que lo merecen y me muevan más de un simple donativo?
