BEST FRIEND
(THE DRUMS)

You’re my best friend
But then you died
When I was 23 and you were 25

You’re my best friend
But then you died
And how will I survive, survive, survive, survive?
Oh how will I survive, survive, survive, survive?

And every day I waited for you
And every day on the top of your car
Every day I waited for you
And every day on the hood of your car

I had a dream of you
You were drifting away
You were sad and the ocean dripped away

Oh no no, you’re gonna be OK
Cuz I can see in your eyes, your eyes, your eyes, your eyes
Oh no no no, I wanna survive, survive, survive, survive

And every day I waited for you
And every day on the top of your car
Every day I waited for you
And every day on the hood of your car

And every day I waited for you
And every day on the top of your car
Every day I waited for you
And every day on the hood of your car

GOING TO A TOWN
(RUFUS WAINWRIGHT)

I’m going to a town that has already been burned down
I’m going to a place that is already been disgraced
I’m gonna see some folks who have already been let down
I’m so tired of America

I’m gonna make it up for all of the Sunday times
I’m gonna make it up for all of the nursery rhymes
They never really seem to want to tell the truth
I’m so tired of you, America

Making my own way home
Ain´t gonna be alone
I got a life to lead, America
I got a life to lead

Tell me, do you really think you go to hell for having loved?
Tell me, and not for thinking everything that you ve done is good
I really need to know, after soaking the body of Jesus Christ in blood
I’m so tired of America, I really need to know

I may just never see you again or might as well
You took advantage of a world that loved you well
I’m going to a town that has already been burned down
I’m so tired of you, America

Making my own way home
Ain´t gonna be alone
I got a life to lead, America

I got a life to lead
I got a soul to feed
I got a dream to heed
And that’s all I need

Making my own way home
Ain´t gonna be alone
I’m going to a town
That has already been burned down

LA NIÑA IMANTADA
(LOVE OF LESBIAN)

Ya hace algunos siglos que he empezado a sospechar
que he caído sin quererlo en tu gravedad.
Es como si andara siempre en espiral,
cuando encuentro una salida tú apareces, niña imantada.

Y ahora yo he de admitirlo.
Y ahora yo presiento que has vencido
y no hay manera humana de escapar.

Así que alégrate lo has conseguido,
los días sin ti serían precipicios.
No hay manera humana de escapar.

Nadie, nunca nadie, nadie excepto tú
puede enviarme hacia el espacio y devolverme hacia su cama.
Y en las horas más oscuras me harás levitar.
En descuidos crearemos universos, niña imantada.

Y ahora yo he de admitirlo.
Y ahora yo presiento que has vencido
y no hay manera humana de escapar.

Te voy a contar este misterio,
simple y eficaz el roce de mis dedos te ha magnetizado
y ahora tú ..
y ahora tú ..
y ahora tú ..
y ahora tú ..

Así que alégrate lo has conseguido,
los días sin ti serían precipicios.
No hay manera humana de escapar.

Así que alégrate lo has conseguido,
los días sin ti serían precipicios.
No hay manera humana de escapar.

NEIGHBORHOOD # 1
(ARCADE FIRE)

And if the snow buries my,
my neighborhood.
And if my parents are crying
then I’ll dig a tunnel
from my window to yours,
yeah a tunnel from my window to yours.
You climb out the chimney
and meet me in the middle,
the middle of town.
And since there’s no one else around,
we let our hair grow long
and forget all we used to know,
then our skin gets thicker
from living out in the snow.

You change all the lead
sleepin’ in my head,
as the day grows dim
I hear you sing a golden hymn.

Then we tried to name our babies,
but we forgot all the names that,
the names we used to know.
But sometimes, we remember our bedrooms,
and our parent’s bedrooms,
and the bedrooms of our friends.
Then we think of our parents,
well what ever happened to them?!

You change all the lead
sleepin’ in my head to gold,
as the day grows dim,
I hear you sing a golden hymn,
the song I’ve been trying to say.

Purify the colors, purify my mind.
Purify the colors, purify my mind,
and spread the ashes of the colors
over this heart of mine!

Esta canción aos galegos recórdanos o programa dos tonechos, pero televisión autonómica aparte, fai uns anos deron un memorable concerto en Benicàssim, seino porque estiven alí…

I DON´T FEEL LIKE DANCING
(SCISSORS SISTERS)

Wake up in the morning with a head like what ya done?
This used to be the life but I dont need another one.
Good luck cuttin nothin, carrying on, you wear them gowns.
So how come I feel so lonely when youre up getting down?

So I play along when I hear that favourite song
Im gonna be the one who gets it right.
You better know when youre swingin round the room
Looks like magics solely yours tonight

But I dont feel like dancin
When the old Joanna plays
My heart could take a chance
But my two feet cant find a way
You think that I could muster up a little soft, shoop devil sway
But I dont feel like dancin
No sir, no dancin today.

Dont feel like dancin, dancin
Even if i find nothin´ better to do
Dont feel like dancin, dancin
Whyd you break down when Im not in the mood?
Dont feel like dancin, dancin
Rather be home with no one when I can´t get down with you

Cities come and cities go just like the old empires
When all you do is change your clothes and call that versatile.
You got so many colours make a blind man so confused.
Then why cant I keep up when youre the only thing I lose?

So Ill just pretend that I know which way to bend
And Im gonna tell the whole world that youre mine.
Just please understand, when I see you clap your hands
If you stick around Im sure that youll be fine.

But I dont feel like dancin
When the old Joanna plays
My heart could take a chance
But my two feet cant find a way
You think that I could muster up a little soft, shoop devil sway
But I dont feel like dancin
No sir, no dancin today.

Dont feel like dancin, dancin
Even if i find nothin´ better to do
Dont feel like dancin, dancin
Whyd you break down when Im not in the mood?
Dont feel like dancin, dancin
Rather be home with no one when I can´t get down with you

You cant make me dance around
But your two-step makes my chest pound.
Just lay me down as you blow it away into the shimmer light.

But I dont feel like dancin
When the old Joanna plays
My heart could take a chance
But my two feet cant find a way
You think that I could muster up a little soft, shoop devil sway
But I dont feel like dancin
No sir, no dancin today.

Dont feel like dancin, dancin
Even if i find nothin´ better to do
Dont feel like dancin, dancin
Whyd you break down when Im not in the mood?
Dont feel like dancin, dancin
Rather be home with no one when I can´t get down with you

ooh aah
buscando con mi ancla
en la marea
nadando en ti
yo voy andando
oye me te estoy amando
(te amo a ti)
por el valle
me encontre un rio escondido
me auge ahi
y me recuerdo
hacia calor pero tenia frio
me hiba a morir

Bianca, ay Paloma Jaqueline
Por fin te vi. ooh
por fin te vi ooh
iigigigi…

CARMENSITA
(DEVENDRA BANHART)

Ay tu primo colorado
Con barba camburada
Y llena de ballena
Inclinándose al sol
Ay tu rayo de luz roja
Besando nuestra boca
El beso que te sopla
Huele a alcohol.

Tus tres ojos lunares
Extraterrestriales
Entran cuando sales
Por eso no se ven
Ay tu barba colorada
Traviesa y rebelde
Me afeito con espada
Pero me vuelve.

Si la noche te persigue
Entrégate a ella
O dile que tienes dolor de cabeza
Sombrita de reflejo
Dame algo tierno
Me como tu amor
Y cago en el infierno.

Adio, adio, adio
Primo granje
Hola Bernardo.

Ay tus ojos colorados
Azul y anaranjados
Amarillo verde y marrón
Mi amor envuelto en tu corazón
No lo sueltes por favor
Somos elefante y serpiente semejante
Tomando aguardiente
En el sol
De una flor.

GO OR GO AHEAD
(RUFUS WAINWRIGHT)

Thank you for the bitter knowledge
guardian angels who left me stranded
it was worth it, feeling abandoned
makes one hardened but what has happened to love
you got me writing lyrics on postcards
then in the evening looking at the stars
but the brightest of the planets is mars
then what has happened to love
so i will opt for the big white limo
vanity fairgrounds and rebel angels
you can’t be trusted with feathers so hollow
your heaven’s inventions, steel eyed vampires of love
you see over me, i’ll never know
what you have shown to other eyes
go or go ahead and surprise me
say you’ve lead the way to a mirage
go or go ahead and just try me
nowhere’s now here smelling of junipers
fell off the hay bales, i’m over the rainbows
but oh medusa kiss me and crucify
this unholy notion of the mythic power of love
look in her eyes, look in her eyes
forget about the ones that are crying
look in her eyes, look in her eyes
forget about the ones that are crying
go or go ahead
