Time Of No Reply

Summer was gone and the heat died down
And Autumn reached for her golden crown
I looked behind as I heard a sigh
But this was the time of no reply.

The sun went down and the crowd went home
I was left by the roadside all alone
I turned to speak as they went by
But this was the time of no reply.

The time of no reply is calling me to stay
There is no hello and no goodbye
To leave there is no way.

The trees on the hill had nothing to say
They would keep their dreams till another day
So they stood and thought and wondered why
For this was the time of no reply.

Time goes by from year to year
And no one asks why I am standing here
But I have my answer as I look to the sky
This is the time of no reply.

The time of no reply is calling me to stay
There's no hello and no goodbye
To leave there is no way.


(Nick Drake, "Time Of No Reply")

L'Arizona

Connaissez vous la marche à suivre ?
Les années qu'ils vous restent à vivre ?
Avez vous relu le grand livre ?
Vous attend t-on sur l'autre rive ?

Ca ressemble à l'Arizona
Aucun de nous n'en reviendra, vivant

Avez vous suivi la consigne ?
D'attendre qu'on vous fasses signe ?
En toute occasion rester digne
De ne jamais franchir la ligne

Ca ressemble à l'Arizona
Chacun de nous y passera du bon temps

N'oubliez pas le manuel
Payez la chambre du motel
Appretez vous à voir le ciel
Ne soyez ni faible ni cruel

Ca ressemble à l'Arizona
Aucun de nous n'en reviendra, vivant

Avez vous toujours peur du noir ?
Qui voyez vous dans le miroir ?
Avez vous eu votre heure de gloire ?
Que gardera de vous l'histoire

Ca ressemble à l'Arizona
Et chacun de nous y fera, son temps

(Benjamin Biolay, "L'Arizona")

Les dessous chics

Les dessous chics
C'est ne rien dévoiler du tout
se dire que lorsqu'on est à bout
c'est tabou

les dessous chics
c'est une jarretelle qui claque
dans la tête comme une paire de claques

les dessous chics
ce sont des contrats résiliés
qui comme des bas résillés
ont filé

les dessous chics
c'est la pudeur des sentiments
maquillés outrageusement
rouge sang

les dessous chics
c'est se garder au fond de soi
fragile comme un bas de soie

les dessous chics
c'est des dentelles et des rubans
d'amertume sur un paravent
désolant

les dessous chics
ce serait comme un talon aiguille
qui transpercerait le cœur des filles...

(Serge Gainsbourg, "Les dessous chics")

La Javanaise

J'avoue
j'en ai
Bavé
pas vous
mon amour
avant
d'avoir
eu vent
de vous
mon amour-
ne vous déplaise
en dansant la Javanaise
nous nous aimions
le temps d'une chanson-
a votre
avis
qu'avons
nous vu
de l'amour
de vous
a moi
vous m'a-
vez eu
mon amour- hélas
avril
en vain
me voue
a l'amour
j'avais
envie
de voir
en vous
cet amour- la vie
ne vaut
d'être
vécue
sans amour
mais c'est
vous qui
l'avez
voulu
mon amour

(Serge Gainsbourg, "La Javanaise")

My Name Is Trouble

My name is trouble my first name’s a mess
No need to greet me I’m here to confess
But if you let me hold you I won’t hold my breath
And if you let me love you I will love to death

My chances endless I tend to obsess
No game is out to my need to possess
But if you let me hold you I won’t hold my breath
And if you let me love you I will love you to death

I'm petrified of emptiness a lot of signs of loneliness
Our love has tend to break me in two
If you’re to come back to me, pieces … melody
There couldn’t be a better way through

My name is trouble my first name’s a mess
Born to deceive you brought up to redress
And if you let me hold you I won’t hold my breath
But if you make me need you I will need you less

I'm petrified of emptiness a lot of signs of loneliness
Our love has tend to break me in two
If you’re to come back to me, pieces...melody
There couldn’t be a better way through

My name is trouble my first name’s a mess
No need to greet me I’m here to confess
And If you let me hold you I won’t hold my breath
And if you let me love I will love to death

If you let me hold you I won’t hold my breath
And if you let me love you I will love you to death

(Keren Ann, "My Name Is Trouble")

I'll Be Your Mirror

I'll be your mirror
Reflect what you are, in case you don't know 
I'll be the wind, the rain and the sunset 
The light on your door to show that you're home
When you think the night has seen your mind 
That inside you're twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind 
Please put down your hands
'Cause I see you
I find it hard to believe you don't know
The beauty that you are
But if you don't let me be your eyes
A hand in your darkness, so you won't be afraid
When you think the night has seen your mind 
That inside you're twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind 
Please put down your hands
'Cause I see you
I'll be your mirror

(The Velvet Underground, "I'll Be Your Mirror")

Something Stupid

I know I stand in line until you think 
You have the time to spend an evening with me 
And if we go someplace to dance 
I know that there's a chance you won't be leaving with me 
And afterwards we drop into a quiet little place 
And have a drink or two
And then I go and spoil it all by saying 
Something stupid like I love you 

I can see it in your eyes that you despise 
The same old lines you heard the night before
And though it's just a line to you for me it's true
And never seemed so right before 

I practice everyday to find some clever lines 
To say to make the meaning come true
But then I think I'll wait until the evening gets late 
And I'm alone with you 
The time is right your perfume fills my head
The stars get red and on the nights so blue
And then I go and spoil it all by saying 
Something stupid like I love you 

(Nancy Sinatra, "Something Stupid")

Human Behaviour

If you ever get close to a human
and human behaviour
be ready to get confused

there's definitely no logic 
to human behaviour
but yet so irresistible

there is no map 
to human behaviour

they're terribly moody 
then all of a sudden turn happy
but, oh, to get involved in the exchange
of human emotions is ever so satisfying

there's no map and
a compass
wouldn't help at all

human behaviour 

(Björk, "Début", "Human Behaviour")

Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small, That we can never get away from the sprawl

They heard me singing and they told me to stop,
Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock,
These days, my life, I feel it has no purpose,
But late at night the feelings swim to the surface.
Cause on the surface the city lights shine,
They're calling at me, "come and find your kind."

Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small,
That we can never get away from the sprawl,
Living in the sprawl,
Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains,
And there's no end in sight,
I need the darkness someone please cut the lights.

We rode our bikes to the nearest park,
Sat under the swings, we kissed in the dark,
We shield our eyes from the police lights,
We run away, but we don't know why,
And like a mirror these city lights shine,
They're screaming at us, "we don't need your kind."

Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small,
That we can never get away from the sprawl,
Living in the sprawl,
Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains,
And there's no end in sight,
I need the darkness someone please cut the lights.

They heard me singing and they told me to stop,
Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock.

Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small,
Can we ever get away from the sprawl?
Living in the sprawl,
Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains,
And there's no end in sight,
I need the darkness someone please cut the lights. 

(Arcade Fire, "Sprawl II, Mountains Beyond Mountains")

I Walk The Line

I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
I keep my eyes wide open all the time.
I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
Because you're mine,
I walk the line

I find it very, very easy to be true
I find myself alone when each day is through
Yes, I'll admit I'm a fool for you
Because you're mine,
I walk the line

As sure as night is dark and day is light
I keep you on my mind both day and night
And happiness I've known proves that it's right
Because you're mine,
I walk the line

You've got a way to keep me on your side
You give me cause for love that I can't hide
For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide
Because you're mine,
I walk the line

(Johnny Cash, "I Walk The Line")
