Paper Aeroplanes - Multiple Love
"I am happy alone.
I am happy alone, and I don’t
Need another half when I am whole.
But maybe, persuade me;
And I’ll do the best that I can. Oh.”
Indila - Derniere danse
"Je remue le ciel le jour, la nuit
Je danse avec le vent la pluie
Un peu d’amour un brin de miel
Et je danse, danse, danse, danse, danse,danse
Et dans le bruit, je cours et j’ai peur
Est ce mon tour?
Vient la douleur…
Dans tout paris, je m’abandonne
Et je m’en vole, vole, vole, vole, vole.”
Sandi Thom - I wish I was punk rocker
"Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In 77 and 69 revolution was in the air
I was born too late into a world that doesn’t care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
When the head of state didn’t play guitar,
Not everybody drove a car,
When music really mattered and when radio was king,
When accountants didn’t have control
And the media couldn’t buy your soul
And computers were still scary and we didn’t know everything
When pop-stars still remained a myth
And ignorance could still be bliss
And when God Saved the Queen she turned a whiter shade of pale
When my mom and dad were in their teens
And anarchy was still a dream
And the only way to stay in touch was a letter in the mail
When record shops were still on top
And vinyl was all that they stocked
And the super info highway was still drifting out in space
Kids were wearing hand me downs,
And playing games meant kick around
And footballers still had long hair and dirt across their face
I was born too late to a world that doesn’t care
Oh I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair.”
Sara Bareilles - Brave
"Or you can start speaking up
Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way that words do
And they settle ‘neath your skin
Kept on the inside and no sunlight
Sometimes a shadow wins
But I wonder what would happen if you
Say what you wanna say
And let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave.”
Ha-Ash - Te dejo en libertad - TRANSLATE - I set you free
"Y me lastima ver que intentas rescatar
Lo que un día
En el alma nos unía.
Tu me quieres pero yo te amo
Esa es la verdad
Tu prescencia aquí me esta matando
Sentirte a la mita.”
- Free Deejays - Mi ritmo
Mayday Parade - Terrible things
"I said, "Girl, can I tell you a wonderful thing?
I made you a present with paper and string.
Open with care now, I’m asking you, please.
You know that I love you, will you marry me?
She said, “Boy can I tell you, a terrible thing?
It seems that I’m sick and I’ve only got weeks.
Please, don’t be sad now, I really believe
You were the greatest thing that ever happened to me.
Now son, I’m only telling you this…
Because life, can do terrible things.”
Amália Rodrigues - Lisboa Não Sejas Francesa - TRANSLATE - Lisbon, do not be a french
"Lisboa não sejas francesa
Com toda a certeza
Não vais ser feliz
Lisboa, que idéia daninha
Casar com Paris
Lisboa, tens cá namorados
Que dizem, coitados,
Com as almas na voz
Lisboa, não sejas francesa
Tu és portuguesa
Tu és só pra nós.”
"The Nightingale", my favourite romanian folk singer
