#Wednesday Words – 15th May 2013

Well as Markus is enjoying a holiday, I have been left the reigns to do a Wednesday Words. Now Markus knows my music taste very well, so that pretty brave of him!!

But first, a quick shameless plug for my charity blog. In April I cycled from London to Paris for a childrens hospice in Sussex  I blogged daily on the trip, and its a great read of a journey of a life time. Its here if you feel its worth a read!

Anyway back to Wednesday Words. Given this task, its actually difficult to select a song based purely on words. The song I have chosen, the words alone have no real connection with me, but when placed with instruments, the song comes alive. Every time I hear this song, I always think its so so powerful, despite not having any real connection to the lyrics. If you have lost a loved one, broken up with someone, or have lost someone close to you, these lyrics will touch you. I urge you to follow the youtube link at the end and watch the video with the music included. Its moving, its powerful, its epic.

The band, Evanescence, rose to fame my mixing hard rock \ soft metal with a womans voice that was actually singing, not screaming. Amy Lee voice is strong, clear and she sings with such emotion and clarity. The song is My Immortal, and for me it is by far the best song the band has done. Its soft, mellow yet powerful and thought prevoking. I have linked the full band version, as for me, the end half, and how it builds up, is written superbly and just fits together perfectly. The original is solely the voice and piano, and although still is great, it doesn’t give the drama that the band does.

So here are the lyrics:

I’m so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
Your presence still lingers here
And it won’t leave me alone

These wounds won’t seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase

[Chorus:]
When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now I’m bound by the life you left behind
Your face – it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice – it chased away all the sanity in me

These wounds won’t seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase

[Chorus]

I’ve tried so hard to tell myself that you’re gone
But though you’re still with me
I’ve been alone all along

[Chorus]

I urge you to follow this link and watch the video to the song. You wont be disappointed.

Thats my Wednesday words for this week. No idea if I’ve done it right, but this is what I imagined!! 🙂

I’ll be back next Wednesday with another Wednesday Words. I’ll try and select a song that has meaning for me, so I can talk about it a bit more!!

wednesday words 03/04/13

It’s Wednesday yet again! Having already read some of this weeks offerings I feel slightly inadequate with just offering lyrics all the time, but hey I’m not that creative that I could just write a poem, find a wonderful quote from somewhere. Maybe I should add my first short story as a ‘Wednesday words post’? Maybe next week, for this week I already said that I was going to give you some more lyrics and that’s what you shall have! Another helping of Pink and Die toten hosen lyrics!

So here now follows another brilliant song by the magnificient Pink:

Pink – don’t let me get me

Never win first place, I don’t support the team
I can’t take direction, and my socks are never clean
Teachers dated me, my parents hated me
I was always in a fight cause I can’t do nothin’ right

Every day I fight a war against the mirror
I can’t take the person starin’ back at me
I’m a hazard to myself

[Chorus]

Don’t let me get me
I’m my own worst enemy
It’s bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
Don’t wanna be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else
I wanna be somebody else, yeah

LA told me, “You’ll be a pop star,
All you have to change is everything you are.”
Tired of being compared to damn Britney Spears
She’s so pretty, that just ain’t me

Doctor, doctor, won’t you please prescribe me somethin’
A day in the life of someone else?
Cause I’m a hazard to myself

[Chorus: x 2]

Doctor, doctor, won’t you please prescribe me somethin’
A day in the life of someone else?
Don’t let me get me

[Chorus]

Before I met my wonderful, beloved Wife there had been more days than I care to recount when I felt exactly like that.

As last week the next set of lyrics that follow has been recorded in English by Die toten Hosen.

Here is the video for the original German version: Die toten Hosen – Mensch – http://youtu.be/2yVcHg1Di_o

Like last time please watch/listen to the original version first to get a feel for what the lyrics should sound like. Here now the English version of the affore mentioned song:

Song Titel: Man

Artist: Die Toten Hosen

Album: Crash-Landing

You ask me what my name is
´cause you don´t know who I am
I´ll tell you all about myself
Then you´ll understand
You wish that we were strangers
But I´ve got other plans

I´m your lover and your best friend, your biggest enemy
I´ll stab you in the back while you are shaking hands with me
I´m nothing that you wanted but I´m everything you need
I´m good and I´m evil
I´m love and I´m hate
Sometimes I´m the real thing
Sometimes I´m a fake
I´m honestly a liar
I´m your history, your fate

I´m the hunter and the hunted, Ißm always on the run
I´m cowardice and courage, anxiety and fun
I´m always out there searching but I never know what for
I´m the winner and I´m the loser in the same sick war

Now you know my name
Now you know who I am
I am you, you are me
My name is Man

I talk about my feelings with a mask upon my face
Declare myself as healthy, intelligent and sane
Control ma live so carefully I slowly suffocate

My hands are full of blood but my heart is full of gold
I´m law and I´m religion, I never can grow old
I´ve crowned myself my own king and Mother Earth´s my throne

I´m longing for the sunlight, I´m heading for the moon
I´m turning in a circle but I think I´m moving on
I live here and I die here within a single breath
I´m body and I´m spirit, I´m saving and condemned

Now you know my name
Now you know who I am
I am you, you are me
My name is Man

That concludes this weeks Wednesday Words, hope you liked it. Please let me know if you would like to read my little short story, which I wrote about 10 years ago or something like that? Also you can always leave song suggestions you’d like to see here on a Wednesday, just one humble request please keep it within the rock genre that would be very much appreciated!

Wednesday Words on a Thursday

Hi there everyone! Another Wednesday another Wednesday words. Or should I say Thursday words. No and I tell for why:

Someone once said to me: it’s not the next day until I had my nights sleep! Which I always found a bit odd but in this case I shall make an exception.

Today ( technically yesterday ) was hectic, busy, but also fun fun fun. I’d like to apologize to the lovely Emma @craZywithtwins who has probably thought there wouldn’t be one from me this week? Well here it is shall I call it Thursday words instead? 🙂

So without further ado here are my Wednesday words ( on a Thursday technically speaking ):

Another round of Pink lyrics:

Family Portrait by Pink

Aah aah [Incomprehensible]
Aah aah [Incomprehensible]
Ohh ohh ohh ohh
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah

Mama please stop cryin’
I can’t stand the sound
Your pain is painful
And it’s tearin’ me down

I hear glasses breakin’
As I sit up in my bed
I told Dad you didn’t mean
Those nasty things you said

You fight about money
‘Bout me and my brother
And this I come home to
This is my shelter

It ain’t easy, growin’ up in World War III
Never knowin’ what love could be
You’ll see, I don’t want love to destroy me
Like it has done my family

Can we work it out?
(Can we?)
Can we be a family?
(Can we?)
I promise I’ll be better
(I promise)
Mommy, I’ll do anything
(I’ll do anything)

Can we work it out?
Can we be a family?
I promise I’ll be better
Daddy, please don’t leave

Daddy please stop yelling
(Stop)
I can’t stand the sound
(Can’t stand the sound)
Make Mama stop cryin’
‘Cause I need you around

My mama, she loves you
(I know it)
No matter what she says is true
I know that she hurts you
But remember I love you too

I ran away today
Ran from the noise, ran away
(Ran away)
Don’t wanna go back to that place
But don’t have no choice, no way

It ain’t easy growin’ up in World War III
Never knowin’ what love could be
That I’ve seen, I don’t want love to destroy me
(I don’t want love to destroy me)
Like it did my family

Can we work it out?
(Can we work it?)
Can we be a family?
I promise I’ll be better
(I promise I’ll do anything)
Mommy, I’ll do anything
(To keep you better)

Can we work it out?
Can we be a family?
I promise I’ll be better
(I promise, I promise)
Daddy, please don’t leave
(Stay)

In our family portrait
(In our family portrait)
We look pretty happy
(We look pretty happy)
Let’s play pretend
(Let’s play pretend)
Let’s act like it comes naturally
(That’s right)
(That’s right)

I don’t wanna have to split the holidays
(No, no)
I don’t want two addresses
(No)
I don’t want a stepbrother anyways
And I don’t want my Mommy
Have to change her last name!

In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
We look pretty normal
Let’s go back to that

In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
Let’s play pretend
Act like it goes naturally

In our family portrait
(Can we work it out?)
We look pretty happy
(Can we be a family?)
We look pretty normal
(I promise I’ll be better)
Let’s go back to that
(Mommy I’ll do anything)

In our family portrait
(Can we work it out?)
We look pretty happy
(Can we be a family?)
Let’s play pretend
(I promise I’ll be better)
Act like it goes naturally
(Daddy please don’t leave)
Oh let’s go back oh lets go back to that

In our family portrait
(Can we work it out?)
We look pretty happy
(Can we be a family?)
We look pretty normal
(I promise I’ll be better)
Lets go back to that
(Mommy I’ll do anything)

In our family portrait
(Can we work it out?)
We look pretty happy
(Can we be a family?)
We look pretty normal
(I promise I’ll be better)
Let’s go back to that
(Mommy I’ll do anything)

Daddy don’t leave
(Don’t leave)
Daddy don’t leave
(Don’t leave)
Daddy don’t leave
Daddy don’t leave
Daddy turn around please

Remember that the night you left
You took my shining star
Daddy don’t leave
Daddy don’t leave
Daddy don’t leave
Don’t leave us here alone

Mama’ll be nicer
I’ll be so much better
I’ll tell my brother
I won’t spill the milk at dinner

I’ll be so much better
I’ll do everything right
I’ll be your little girl forever
I’ll go to sleep at night

Ohh ho ohh ho
Ohh ho ohh ho

So that were the not so happy lyrics to a great song by the ever so charming, talented and wonderful Pink.

The next one is again by one of my favourite German bands Die toten hosen. Again here first is the video to the German version so you can have feel for what it might sound like:

Here now are the lyrics to the English version:

Lyrics to Put Your Money Where your mouth is (Buy Me) :
I know you really need it bad,
you know this is true.
I know I’m always on your mind,
there’s nothing you can do.
I can make you feel alive
if the price is right,
so let’s put the seal on this little deal
and I’ll be yours tonight.

So put your money where your mouth is,
I know what’s best for you.
Just cough it up and let’s get started,
anything will do – So, come on, buy me!

I’m your rose pink Cadillac,
your sexy perfume spray,
I’m your daily happy pill,
I’ll make you feel okay.
I’m that special satin dress that comes from Paris, France,
I’m your throbbing sex-aid toy that simulates romance.

So put your money where your heart is,
I know what’s best for you.
Just cough it up and let’s get started,
anything will do – So, come on, buy me!
Why not try me? – Come on, buy me!

I am everything you need and everything you want,
try my special offer, you can pay me by the month.
All this and more, my dear, I’m the hottest deal in town,
call me day or night, you know, I’ll always come around.
You can trust in me ’cause I love to see you lay your money down.

So put your money where your heart is,
I know what’s best for you.
Just cough it up and let’s get started,
anything will do.
Come on, live now and pay later, spend all you have and more.
I’m your cornershop persuader, adding up the score.
So, come on, buy me!
Why not try me? – You know you like me!
Please buy me! – Come on buy me!

Until next time and I’m hoping it will then be published on a Wednesday actually.

Wednesday words 06/03/13

It’s Wednesday again, how time flies. My dad’s been over for about a week and a half now, but I’ll go into more detail about in a seperate post at some point soon.

So now back to the Wednesday words. So if you haven’t for some unknown reason haven’t come across Emma at crazywithtwins http://www.crazywithtwins.com/2013/03/05/wednesday-words-6/

This week rather late in the day, hopefully I’ll be able to link up? It’s again a song by Pink to start with and then slightly different than last time. We’ll have the English version of a German song, but I’ll give you a link to both videos, unfortunately I didn’t actually find an official music video to either version of the second lot of lyrics!

Here now come the lyrics to “Who knew” by Pink

“Who knew” by Pink

You took my hand, you showed me how
You promised me you’d be around
Uh huh, that’s right

I took your words and I believed
In everything you said to me
Yeah huh, that’s right

If someone said three years from now
You’d be long gone
I’d stand up and punch them out
‘Cause they’re all wrong

I know better
‘Cause you said forever
And ever, who knew?

Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
Oh no, no no

I wish I could touch you again
I wish I could still call you a friend
I’d give anything

When someone said count your blessings now
For they’re long gone
I guess I just didn’t know how
I was all wrong

But they knew better
Still you said forever and ever
Who knew? Yeah yeah

I’ll keep you locked in my head
Until we meet again
Until we, until we meet again
And I won’t forget you my friend
What happened?

If someone said three years from now
You’d be long gone
I’d stand up and punch them out
‘Cause they’re all wrong

And that last kiss I’ll cherish
Until we meet again
And time makes it harder
I wish I could remember

But I keep your memory
You visit me in my sleep
My darling, who knew?

My darling
My darling, who knew?
My darling I miss you
My darling, who knew?

Who knew?

And here is the official music video to Who knew

Now we come to the 2nd lyrics. I would like you to watch or more like listen to video first and then read on, you then should have a feel for how it should sound. So here is the video to the German version of Seelentherapie by Die toten Hosen

Original version: http://youtu.be/qpRafqQkRTc

Here now follow the English version of the song from the above video

Soul therapy by Die toten Hosen

Sometimes you can’t cope with life,
you think there’s nothing you can do.
The whole world seems to be caving in and burying you.
All the hatred and the hypocrisy, the punishment of truth,
the sickness and the cynicism, that strips away your youth.
If you could find a crack in this faceless wall
and push your fingers through,
your hand will touch another hand ’cause I’m buried here, too.

Come on! Let’s join up!
Let’s rise out of this dirt,
escape from this oppression, this anger and this hurt.
The ignorance, intolerance, stupidity and lies,
spreading like a virus and ruining our lives.
All we need is honesty to push away this night,
let’s hang on to our innocence and hold each other tight.

And we could cure ourselves if we believe it’s possible,
let’s lie down on this couch and make ourselves more comfortable.
We’ve come to the oasis that we’ve both been searching for,
so let’s lay down our weapons and forget this stupid war.
We’ll listen to each other, our wounds will start to heal,
it’s starting out as role-play, but it ends up being real.

I heal you,
if you take care of me.
And we lose ourselves
in soul therapy.

We’ll dive into our deepest fears, delve into our souls,
we’ll face up to our nightmares until the fear dissolves.
And when you meet your enemies, I’ll be there by your side,
from man or god or devil you will never need to hide.
All we need is honesty to push away the night.
Let’s hang on to each other,
let’s hold each other tight.

I heal you,
if you take care of me.
We lose ourselves
in soul therapy.

I heal you,
if you take care of me.
And we lose ourselves
in soul therapy.

And we’ll find ourselves
in soul therapy.

Here now follows the video to the English version of Seelentherapie by Die toten Hosen:

As I said at the start unfortunately I was a bit busy today and hadn’t found the time before now. Also for the German contingent this week I couldn’t find any official videos unfortunately.

Well let me know if you’d like me to carry on with my favourite Pink songs?

Until next week
