#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 27/03/13

I have a ever so slight confession to make, this post has been written in advance. As I posted one Wednesday words on a Thursday and missed the opportunity to do one at all last week I thought I’d better schedule it this time. Which I have done now, see if I can actually get next weeks done without scheduling? Anyway I did ask twitter which Pink lyrics people wanted and I only got 1 reply with a snippet from one of her songs. Good friend and Godfather to one of my boys @davechapman83 suggested ‘So what’. So Dave thanks for the suggestion, here now are the lyrics and the video to “So what” by Pink:

Pink “So what”

Na-na-na-na, na-na, na
Na-na-na-na na-na
Na-na-na-na, na-na, na
Na-na-na-na na-na

I guess I just lost my husband
I don’t know where he went
So I’m gonna drink my money
I’m not gonna pay his rent
(Nope!)

I got a brand new attitude
And I’m gonna wear it tonight
I’m gonna get in trouble
I wanna start a fight

Na-na-na-na, na-na, na
I wanna start a fight
Na-na-na-na, na-na, na
I wanna start a fight!

So, so what?
I’m still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t need you
And guess what
I’m having more fun
And now that we’re done
I’m gonna show you tonight
I’m alright
I’m just fine
And you’re a tool

So, so what?
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t want you tonight

Uh, check my flow, uh

The waiter just took my table
And gave it to Jessica Simp, shit!
I guess I’ll go sit with drum boy
At least he’ll know how to hit

What if this song’s on the radio
Then somebody’s gonna die
I’m gonna get in trouble
My ex will start a fight

Na-na-na-na, na-na, na
He’s gonna start a fight
Na-na-na-na, na-na, na
We’re all gonna get in a fight!

So, so what?
I’m still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t need you

And guess what
I’m having more fun
And now that we’re done
I’m gonna show you tonight
I’m alright
I’m just fine
And you’re a tool

So, so what?
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t want you tonight

You weren’t there
You never were
You want it all
But that’s not fair
I gave you life
I gave my all
You weren’t there
You let me fall

So, so what?
I’m still a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t need you

And guess what
I’m having more fun
And now that we’re done
I’m gonna show you tonight
I’m alright
I’m just fine
And you’re a tool

So, so what?
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t want you tonight

No no, no no
I don’t want you tonight
You weren’t there
I’m gonna show you tonight
I’m alright
I’m just fine
And you’re a tool

So, so what?
I am a rock star
I got my rock moves
And I don’t want you tonight

Ba-da-da-da, da-da

Ok so now the next set of lyrics again come from the brilliant german band “Die toten Hosen”

Disclaimer: this one is about Gambling, so if you have a problem with gambling or just don’t like reading about anything associated with Gambling stop reading now.

Next there will be the video to “Liebesspieler” the german version of the lyrics that will follow to the English version “Love is here”:

Die toten Hosen ‘Liebesspieler’

So please watch/listen to the video above before reading on, it should give you an idea what the lyrics should sound like in conjuction with the music!

Die toten Hosen ‘Love is here’

Hey, today’s my lucky day
Trust me and love is here

Hey, today’s our lucky day
Honest, no need to fear

Under starters orders
They’re off and running clear
And way out front it’s love is here

They’re passing where I stand
With betting slip in sweaty hand
I let out a confident cheer

Hey, today’s my lucky day
Trust me and love is here

Hey, today’s our lucky day
Honest, no need to fear

When I’ve won this race
I’ll take you any place
And buy anything your heart desires
And later, if you like
You can stay with me tonight
And help put out this fire

Hey, today’s my lucky day
Trust me and love is here

Hey, today’s our lucky day
Honest, no need to fear

What the hell went wrong
That donkey had it won?
The midget on it’s back has let me down
Now, she’s gone home

So, I check the form alone
There’s a winner that must be found

Bullocks, today is not my day
Trust me, to pick that mule

Bullocks, there’ll be another day
That day I will come through

Bullocks, there’ll be another day
And on that day I will come through
