Reflection of a sunset

Vanaf de berg, loop ik omlaag,
Ik liep deze weg, voor ‘t eerst vandaag
Vanuit het dal keek ik omhoog
Mooie vogel die daar vloog

Mais l’oiseau, l’oiseau s’est envolé,
Et moi jamais je ne le toruverai

Hij werd gedragen op de wind
Ik op de lichte vleugels van ‘n kind
Dacht dat hij daar dichter bij de zon
Al mijn dromen vangen kon

Je voudrais tout te donner
Mais toi pourquoi ne me dis tu rien
Quel est-il ton grand secret
un secret d’homme je le comprend bien

Altijd door en altijd druk
Onderweg naar wat klein geluk

Si un jour / altijd laat / tu m’écoutais / en altijd moe
Tu apprendrais / vogels vouwden vleugels toe/
Tout ce que je sais

L’oiseau part /zacht beshenen / et puis revient / door de man
Tu le verras peut-être demain.

Ik zit in de tuin, op m’n gemak
‘n vogel fluit, vanaf ‘n lange tak
‘n lome wind, de zon schijnt warm
Jouw zomerjurk, jouw meisjes arm

Mais vois-tu je lui raconterais
Combien pour toi je sais qu’l a compté

Hij heeft z’n noodlot / c’est l’oiseau / uitgesteld / que tu aimais
‘n duif vielgt weg / l’oiseau jaloux / over het vrije veld / je l’ai déviné
Komt niet meer terug / si jamais / is er vandoor / il revenait
De laatste stoptrein op het spoor.

ONderweg

Listen to the... Posted on Sat, November 07, 2009 01:55:57

Ik doe de deur dicht
Straten lijken te huilen
Wolken lijken te vluchten
Ik stap de bus in
Mensen lijken te kijken
Maar ik wil ze ontwijken
Voordat ze mij zien

Het is allang verleden tijd
Dat je mijn verjaardag niet vergat
Je onvoorwaardelijk koos voor mij

Ik zie de velden
Langs me heen gaan huizen
Het is stil achter de ruiten
Wie kan mij zien
In blauw verlichte treinen
Je hart is zo dicht bij me
Maar het klopt niet

Het is allang verleden tijd
Je zwarte haren en je lach
Dat je heel de wereld voor mij was
Het zit nog veel te diep in mij
Dat ik mocht delen wat jij had
Je door me haren ging en zei

ABel

Je kent m’n stem niet
Wie ik ben is wat je nu ziet
Wil je dansen met illusies
In gedachten
Ben je verder dan het heden
Wil je terug naar je verleden
Zegt je dat iets

Het is allang verleden tijd
Rode wijn op een terras
Dat je heel de wereld voor mij was
Het zit nog veel te diep in mij
Maar ik vergat hoe jij me zag
Dat ik zo anders ben dan jij

Ik loop de straat in
Maar het zal mij nooit verwarmen
Omdat het mij niet kan omarmen
Wie zou mij zien
Het liefst zou ik willen schreeuwen
Ik zou oneindig willen schreeuwen
Maar het gaat niet

Jij bent nu alleen van mij
Ik kan de wereld laten zien
Dat het zo beter is misschien
Het is allang verleden tijd
En ik vergat hoe jij me zag
Dat ik zo anders ben dan jij



Altijd Samen

Boudewijn De Groot

haar gezicht kan alles zeggen
als ze pijn heeft smelt mijn hart
in haar ogen breekt de zon door
als ze vrolijk is

ze weet mijn boosheid te weerleggen
met de onschuld van een kind
of te weerstaan met een gratie
die onweerstaanbaar is

wij zijn altijd samen
wij zijn altijd één
wij zijn altijd samen

zij is de laatste die ik liefheb
en de enige voor altijd
als zij weggaat blijf ik eeuwig
in eenzaamheid

als ik soms weg ben op lange reizen
mis ik haar warmte om me heen
zonder haar is er de leegte
van alleen

wij zijn altijd samen
wij zijn altijd één
wij zijn altijd samen …



God is gratis

Herman Van veen

God is de wind
God is de wind jongen
die door je haar waait

God is de zon
God is de zon jongen
die je gezicht verwarmt

God is geen bijl
God is geen wet
God is geen standbeeld
God is geen oordeel

God is een vlok
God is een sneeuwvlok
die op je hand smelt

God is een woord
God is een naam
die in je hart woont
God is gratis



my Immortal

Listen to the... Posted on Sat, December 27, 2008 22:40:08

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
Because 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

Blog Image
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’ve held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

You used to captivate me
by your resonating light
But 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

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’ve held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

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



Lithium

Listen to the... Posted on Sat, December 27, 2008 22:34:47

Lithium, don’t want to lock me up inside
Lithium, don’t want to forget how it feels without
Lithium, I want to stay in love with my sorrow
Oh but God I want to let it go

Come to bed, don’t make me sleep alone
Couldn’t hide the emptiness you let it show
Never wanted it to be so cold
Just didn’t drink enough to say you love me

I can’t hold on to me
Wonder what’s wrong with me

Blog Image
Lithium, don’t want to lock me up inside
Lithium, don’t want to forget how it feels without
Lithium, I want to stay in love with my sorrow

Don’t want to let it lay me down this time
Drown my will to fly
Here in the darkness I know myself
Can’t break free until I let it go
Let me go

Darling, I forgive you after all
Anything is better than to be alone
And in the end I guess I had to fall
Always find my place among the ashes

I can’t hold on to me
Wonder what’s wrong with me

Lithium, don’t want to lock me up inside
Lithium, don’t want to forget how it feels without
Lithium, stay in love with you
Oh I’m gonna let it go

why Lithium?

It’s not literal, it’s not literal about the drug for me, I’ve never taken lithium before. It’s sort of a metaphor about numbness and happiness and sort of like, it’s me looking at happiness in a negative way because I’ve always been, you know, kind of afraid to be happy. Like with the band and the art and everything else, it’s always like I’m never letting myself break through into the happiness it seems like, because it’s not cool or something. And describing happiness is lithium, it’s like saying ‘that’s numbness, I won’t be able to be an artist anymore if I’m happy’, which is hilarious because that’s just not true, I’m happy. So it’s like this fight within the song of like ‘do I do this and get out of here and get happy or do I wallow in it like I always do?’ and it’s cool because at the end of the song I say ‘I’m going to let it go’, like I am going to be happy. “Amy lee”

Solitude

Listen to the... Posted on Sat, December 27, 2008 22:26:24

How many times have you told me you love her?
As many times as I wanted to tell you the truth.
How long have I stood here beside you?
I lived through you, you looked through me.

Ooh, Solitude
Still with me is only you
Ooh, Solitude
I can’t stay away from you

Blog Image
How many times have I done this to myself?
How long will it take before I see?
When will this hole in my heart be mended?
Who now is left alone but me?

Ooh, Solitude
Forever me and forever you
Ooh, Solitude
Only you, Only true

Everyone leaves me stranded,
forgotten, abandoned
Left behind
I can’t stay here another night

Your secret admirer, who could it be?

Ooh, Can’t you see all along it was me?
How can you be so blind as to see right through me?

And Ooh, Solitude
Still with me is only you
Ooh, solitude
I can’t stay away from you

And ooh, Solitude
Forever me and forever you
Ooh, Solitude
Only you, Only true



So far away

Listen to the... Posted on Sun, September 21, 2008 17:08:35

In the coldest time of year,
Darkness all around my heart.
I was alone but didn’t fear
To wander in the light of stars.
In the bright and silent night,
Winds would knock and disappear.
Still I felt the feeling near,
Like the first time you were ever here.
You’re so far away,
So far away,Blog Image
You left me,
You told me you would stay.
You never said goodbye
And I’ll keep asking why,
I keep on asking how,
Oh come unto me now.
I have breathed the morning air,
I have heard the four winds blow.
I was weary but prepared to follow
Down this lonely road.
In the room where lovers sleep,
Winds would knock and disappear.
Still I felt the music near,
Like the first time we were ever here.
You’re so far away,
So far away,
You left me,
You told me you would stay.
You never said goodbye
And I keep wondering why,
I keep on wondering how,
Oh come inside me now.



Salvation

Listen to the... Posted on Sun, September 21, 2008 17:06:03

i can barely remember my past
everything seems to disappear so fast
but i recall being jealous and alone
gazing at the dreams going by

i started my life when you knocked on the door
found something inside i didn’t dare to ignore
now i do believe in flowers on the moon
i’ll swim beside the golden tide

you
crashed by the gate
captured my fate
salvation
my eyes couldn’t see
i hardly breathed
i was diving so deep
salvation
Blog Image
i’m down in the study holding on to my luck
will you still love me when i call you up?
i gave you my body, the power over me
come on, bring out the best in me

you crashed by the gate
captured my fate
salvation
my eyes couldn’t see
i hardly breathed
my heart was asleep
salvation

some will get broken
others will get lucky like me meeting you
don’t pass me by

you crashed by the gate
captured my fate
salvation
my eyes couldn’t see
i hardly breathed
i was down on my knees
salvation

some will get broken
others will get lucky like me meeting you
don’t pass me by
don’t pass me by

i found salvation, oh yea
you bring me salvation
i found salvation



Wish i could fly

Listen to the... Posted on Sun, September 21, 2008 17:04:31

halfway through the night
i wake up in a dream
echoes in my head
make every whisper turn into a scream

i dreamed i could fly
out in the blue
over this town
followin’ you
over the trees
subways and cars
i’d try to find out who you really are

Blog Image
in the middle of the night
cool
sweatin’ in my bed
got the windows open wide
thinkin’ about all the things you said

i wish i could fly
out in the blue
over this town
followin’ you
i’d fly over rooftops
the great boulevards
to try to find out
who you really are
who you really are

i wish i could fly now
i wish i could fly now
i wish i could fly around and around
over this town
the dirt on the ground
i’d follow your course
of doors left ajar
to try to find out
who you really are
who you really are

i’d fly & fly & fly
i wish i could fly
i wake up in a dream
(background : in the middle of the night / in the…..etc)
in the middle of the night
i wish i could fly
i wish i could fly



Spending my Time

Listen to the... Posted on Sun, September 21, 2008 17:02:06

what’s the time?
seems it’s already morning.
i see the sky,
it’s so beautiful and blue.
the tv’s on but the only thing showing
is a picture of you.

oh i get up and make myself some coffee.
i try to read a bit
but the story’s too thin.
i thank the lord above that you’re not here to see me
in this shape i’m in.

spending my time,
watching the days go by.
feeling so small,
i stare at the wall,
hoping that you
think of me too.
i’m spending my time.

i try to call
but i don’t know what to tell you.
i leave a kiss on your answering machine.
oh help me please,
is there someone who can make me
wake up from this dream?

spending my time, watching the days go by
feeling so small, i stare at the wall
hoping that you are missing me too
i´m speending my time, watching the sun go down
i fall asleep to the sound of “Tears of a Clown”
a prayer gone blind
i´m spending my time…

my friends keep telling me:
hey, life will go on,
time will make sure i will get over you.
this silly game of love –
you play, you win only to lose.

i am spending my time,
watching the days go by.
feeling so small,
i stare at the wall,
hoping that you
will think of me too.

i’m spending my time,
watching the sun go down.
i fall asleep to the sound
of “tears of a clown,”
a prayer gone blind.

i’m spending my time.



Listen to the heart

Listen to the... Posted on Sun, September 21, 2008 16:59:39

I know there’s something in the wake of your smile
I get a notion from the look in your eyes yea
You’ve built a love but that love falls apart
Your little piece of heaven turns too dark

Listen to your heart when he’s calling for you
Listen to your heart there’s nothing else you can do
I don’t know where you’re going and I don’t know why
But listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye

Sometimes you wonder if this fight is worthwhile
The precious moments are all lost in the tide yea
They’re swept away and nothing is what it seems
The feeling of belonging to your dreams

Listen to your heart when he’s calling for you
Listen to your heart there’s nothing else you can do
I don’t know where you’re going and I don’t know why
But listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye

And there are voices that want to be heard.
So much to mention but you can’t find the words.
The scent of magic, the beauty that’s been
When love was wilder than the wind.

Listen to your heart when he’s calling for you
Listen to your heart, there’s nothing else you can do
I don’t know where you’re going and I don’t know why,
But listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye.

Listen to your heart mhmmmmm
I don’t know where your going and I don’t know why
Listen to your heart before you tell him goodbye
