Life song

Lancei o desafio no grupo Vidas quase perfeitas como tema livre, o proposto era falarem sobre uma musica ou uma imagem que vos dissesse muito, que fosse importante para vocês. E hoje trago-vos… a musica da minha vida 🙂

Sabem aquela musica que vocês ouvem vezes sem conta mas e sempre como se fosse a primeira vez? E quando a ouvem a vossa vida passa em slow motion pelo vosso cérebro… Sim, isto acontece-me com esta musica dos U2. Sei a letra de cor e salteado, ja a cansei vezes sem conta em karaoke…e as lagrimas vieram aos olhos quando a cantei no concerto deles. É como se esta musica fosse a banda sonora da minha vida pois de cada vez que a ouço cada palavra faz cada vez mais sentido para mim…

One é a terceira musica do álbum Achtung Baby dos U2, lançado em 1992 e na minha opinião fala sobre uma relação que não deu certo e para comprovar isto deixo-vos este facto: It could be about the dissolution of The Edge’s marriage to Aislinn O’Sullivan. The couple was having problems in their relationship and split soon after the sessions. Bono was the best man at their wedding.

Is it getting better?
Or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now
You got someone to blame?

You say one love, one life
When it’s one need in the night
One love, we get to share it
Leaves you, baby, if you don’t care for it

Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without

Well, it’s too late, tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We’re one, but we’re not the same
We get to carry each other, carry each other
One

Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus
To the lepers in your head?

Did I ask too much, more than a lot?
You gave me nothing, now it’s all I got
We’re one, but we’re not the same
Well, we hurt each other, then we do it again

You say
Love is a temple, love a higher law
Love is a temple, love the higher law
You ask me to enter, but then you make me crawl
And I can’t keep holding on to what you got
When all you got is hurt

One love, one blood
One life you got to do what you should
One life with each other: Sisters, brothers
One life, but we’re not the same
We get to carry each other, carry each other
One! One!

Ja conheciam esta musica?

E para voces qual e a musica que vos faz pensar na vida?

Karaoke Times…

Dos tempos em que eu cantava Karaoke.. Ja la vão uns aninhos valentes , mais ou menos 15 🙂 Confesso que ja tenho saudades de pegar no microfone. Posso não cantar grande coisa, mas é uma sensação  que me faz bem a alma. Desligas o complicometro e deixas-te levar 🙂

Knew the signs
Wasn’t right
I was stupid for a while
Swept away by you
And now I feel like a fool
So confused,
My heart’s bruised
Was I ever loved by you?
Out of reach, so far
I never had your heart
Out of reach
Couldn’t see
We were never
Meant to be…

I have climbed the highest mountains
I have run through the fields
Only to be with you
Only to be with you.

I have run, I have crawled
I have scaled these city walls
These city walls
Only to be with you.

But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for.
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for.

I have kissed honey lips
Felt the healing in her finger tips
It burned like fire
(I was) burning inside her.

I have spoke with the tongue of angels
I have held the hand of a devil
It was warm in the night
I was cold as a stone.

But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for.
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for.

I believe in the Kingdom Come
Then all the colours will bleed into one
Bleed into one.
But yes, I’m still running.

You broke the bonds
And you loosed the chains
Carried the cross of my shame
Oh my shame, you know I believe it.

But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for.
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for.

But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for.
But I still haven’t found
What I’m looking for.

I wanna run, I want to hide
I wanna tear down the walls
That hold me inside.
I wanna reach out
And touch the flame
Where the streets have no name.

I wanna feel sunlight on my face.
I see the dust-cloud
Disappear without a trace.
I wanna take shelter
From the poison rain
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name.

We’re still building and burning down love
Burning down love.
And when I go there
I go there with you
(It’s all I can do).

The city’s a flood, and our love turns to rust.
We’re beaten and blown by the wind
Trampled in dust.
I’ll show you a place
High on a desert plain
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name.

We’re still building and burning down love
Burning down love.
And when I go there
I go there with you
(It’s all I can do).

See the stone set in your eyes
See the thorn twist in your side
I wait for you
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
On a bed of nails she makes me wait
And I wait, without you

With or without you
With or without you

Through the storm we reach the shore
You give it all but I want more
And I’m waiting for you

With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

My hands are tied
My body bruised, she’s got me with
Nothing to win and
Nothing left to lose

And you give yourself away
And you give yourself away
And you give
And you give
And you give yourself away

With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you
Oh

With or without you
With or without you
I can’t live
With or without you

With or without you

Green light, seven eleven
You stop in for a pack of cigarettes
You don’t smoke, don’t even want to
I see you check your change
Dressed up like a car crash
The wheels are turning byt you’re upside down
You say when he hits you, you don’t mind
Because when he hurts you, you feel alive
Is that what it is?
Red lights, gray morning
You stumble out of a hole in the ground
A vampire or a victim
It depends on who’s around
You used to stay in to watch the adverts
You could lip sync to the talk shows
And if you look, you look through me
And if you talk it’s not to me
And when I touch you, you don’t feel a thing
If I could stay then the night would give you up
Stay, and the day would keep it’s trust
Stay, and the night would be enough
Faraway, so close
Up with the static and the radio
With satellite television
You can go anywhere
Miami, New Orleans, London, Belfast and Berlin
And if you listen I can’t call
And if you jump, you just might fall
And if you shout I’ll only hear you
If I could stay then the night would give you up
Stay then the day would keep it’s trust
Stay with the demons you drowned
Stay with the spirit I found
Stay and the night would be enough
Three o’clock in the morning
It’s quiet and there’s no one around
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel runs to ground
Just the bang and the clatter
As an angel hits the ground

 

E voces, gostam de cantar? Digam-me onde, no carro, no duche, vale tudo 😀

Where the streets have no name…

 

Windsor, July 2017 (pela minha lente)

Quando tirei esta fotografia lembrei-me desta musica, e pensei que eles podiam muito bem ter feito este videoclip neste sitio hehe 🙂

I wanna run, I want to hide
I wanna tear down the walls
That hold me inside.
I wanna reach out
And touch the flame
Where the streets have no name.
I wanna feel sunlight on my face.
I see the dust-cloud
Disappear without a trace.
I wanna take shelter
From the poison rain
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name.
We’re still building and burning down love
Burning down love.
And when I go there
I go there with you
(It’s all I can do).
The city’s a flood, and our love turns to rust.
We’re beaten and blown by the wind
Trampled in dust.
Com isto os U2 repetiram a proeza dos Beatles conforme podem ver na Wikipedia

Bom domingo 🙂
