The Dying of the Light (SSFD #7)

You get into a music shop and almost randomly buy a record. You listen and you suddenly you feel overwhelmed by a huge wave of melancholy: somewhere there is a guy who told the tale you thought was yours, his words and music sound so familiar. Is he a stranger, a childhood friend or just another parallel life? And you smile…

“And I was told that the streets were paved with gold
And there’d be no time for getting old when we were young
But it’s alright if you dance with me tonight
We’ll fight the dying of the light and we’ll catch the sun”

3 Libras (SSFD #6)

We can lose ourselves into someone else’s eyes, play with bodies and feelings and finally find that all we have in return is… nothing more than some kind of beauty, filled up with solid emptiness and a good dose of narcissism. Falling in love is not a wise option, but we are only human (and s**t happens)…

And sometimes we stumble upon a song which reminds us of such a weird diversion. Enjoy, my friends.

Threw you the obvious
and you flew with it on your back
a name in your recollection
down among a million same

Difficult not to feel a little bit
disappointed and passed over
when I’ve looked right through
to see you naked but oblivious
and you don’t see me

But I threw you the obvious
just to see if there’s more behind
the eyes of a fallen angel
eyes of a tragedy

Here I am expecting just a little bit too much
From the wounded but I see through it all and see you

‘Cause I threw you the obvious
to see what occurs behind the eyes of a fallen angel
Eyes of a tragedy
oh well, oh well apparently nothing
apparently nothing at all

You don’t see me at all.

Soon we’ll be found (SSFD #5)

I fell instantly in love with the beautiful and unique voice of Sia Furler one night, when she performed on this very TV show. Ever since, she has become quite a star both as a singer and a songwriter, moved from Australia to the US and collaborated with mainstream pop artists like David Guetta, Beyoncé and Rhianna. But in my mind she has remained the fragile, funny and moving artist I found out that night. Enjoy…

Come along it is the break of day
Surely now, you’ll have some things to say
It’s not the time for telling tales on me
So come along, it won’t be long ’til we return happy
Shut your eyes, there are no lies in this world we call sleep
Let’s desert this day of hurt, tomorrow we’ll be free

Let’s not fight, I’m tired, can’t we just sleep tonight?
Don’t turn away, it’s just there’s nothing left here to say
Turn around, I know we’re lost but soon we’ll be found

Well, it’s been rough but we’ll be just fine
We’ll work it out, yeah, we’ll survive
You mustn’t let a few bad times dictate
So come along, it won’t be long ’til we return happy
Shut your eyes, there are no lies in this world we call sleep
Let’s desert this day of hurt, tomorrow we’ll be free

Let’s not fight, I’m tired, can’t we just sleep tonight?
Don’t turn away, it’s just there’s nothing left here to say
Turn around, I know we’re lost but soon we’ll be found

Somewhere only we know (SSFD #4)

A place that I can share with anyone I want. A world apart, where doubts and hopes can freely collide in soft bounces and glittering colors. My somewhere is a very peaceful world: no one to wait for, no one to blame, no more tears. And you will never be late, in my land of somewhere. Please love, join me there tonight.

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything
So why don’t we go somewhere only we know?
