RE: Favorite Song Lyrics
Vesti la Giubba



Recitar! Mentre preso dal delirio,
non so più quel che dico,
e quel che faccio!
Eppur è d'uopo, sforzati!
Bah! Sei tu forse un uom?
Tu se' Pagliaccio!

Vesti la giubba,
e la faccia infarina.
La gente paga, e rider vuole qua.
E se Arlecchin t'invola Colombina,
ridi, Pagliaccio, e ognun applaudirà!
Tramuta in lazzi lo spasmo ed il pianto
in una smorfia il singhiozzo e 'l dolor, Ah!

Ridi, Pagliaccio,
sul tuo amore infranto!
Ridi del duol, che t'avvelena il cor!

(TRANSLATION)

Act! While in delirium,
I no longer know what I say,
or what I do!
And yet it's necessary... make an effort!
Bah! Are you not a man?
You are a clown!

Put on your costume,
powder your face.
The people pay to be here, and they want to laugh.
And if Harlequin shall steal your Columbina,
laugh, clown, so the crowd will cheer!
Turn your distress and tears into jest,
your pain and sobbing into a funny face – Ah!

Laugh, clown,
at your broken love!
Laugh at the grief that poisons your heart!

Through profound pain comes profound knowledge.
Ridi, Pagliaccio, sul tuo amore infranto! Ridi del duol, che t'avvelena il cor!

RE: Favorite Song Lyrics




This is one of my FAVORITE songs.

Darcy, Darcy darling dear,
You left me dying, crying there
In whiskey, gin, and pints of beer
I fell for you my darling dear

It's all in the past, bitch! Cause now I got it beat!-Dropkick Murphys "The Dirty Glass."

RE: Favorite Song Lyrics
There are those who think that life has nothing left to chance
A host of holy horrors to direct our aimless dance

A planet of play things
We dance on the strings
Of powers we cannot perceive
'The stars aren't aligned
Or the gods are maligned...'
Blame is better to give than receive

[Chorus:]
You can choose a ready guide in some celestial voice
If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice
You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill
I will choose a path that's clear
I will choose freewill

There are those who think
That they were dealt a losing hand
The cards were stacked against them
They weren't born in Lotusland

All preordained
A prisoner in chains
A victim of venomous fate
Kicked in the face
You can pray for a place
In heaven's unearthly estate

[Chorus]

Each of us
A cell of awareness
Imperfect and incomplete
Genetic blends
With uncertain ends
On a fortune hunt that's far too fleet

[Chorus]

Freewill by Rush

You're welcome. Smartass

Here's another song from Hannes Wader.



Original lyrics
Weit in der Champagne im Mittsommergrün
dort wo zwischen Grabkreuzen Mohnblumen blüh'n,
da flüstern die Gräser und wiegen sich leicht
im Wind, der sanft über das Gräberfeld streicht.
Auf deinem Kreuz finde ich toter Soldat,
Deinen Namen nicht, nur Ziffern und jemand hat
die Zahl neunzehnhundertundsechzehn gemalt,
und du warst nicht einmal neunzehn Jahre alt.

Ja, auch Dich haben sie schon genauso belogen
so wie sie es mit uns heute immer noch tun,
und du hast ihnen alles gegeben:
Deine Kraft, Deine Jugend, Dein Leben.

Hat du, toter Soldat, mal ein Mädchen geliebt?
Sicher nicht, denn nur dort, wo es Frieden gibt,
können Zärtlichkeit und Vertrauen gedei'n,
warst Soldat, um zu sterben, nicht um jung zu sein.
Vielleicht dachtest du Dir, ich falle schon bald,
nehme mir mein Vergnügen, wie es kommt, mit Gewalt.
Dazu warst du entschlossen, hast dich aber dann
vor dir selber geschämt und es doch nie getan.

Ja, auch Dich haben sie schon genauso belogen
so wie sie es mit uns heute immer noch tun,
und du hast ihnen alles gegeben:
Deine Kraft, Deine Jugend, Dein Leben.

Soldat, gingst du gläubig und gern in des Tod?
Oder hast zu verzweifelt, verbittert, verroht,
Deinen wirklichen Feind nicht erkannt bis zum Schluß?
Ich hoffe, es traf dich ein sauberer Schuß?
Oder hat ein Geschoß Dir die Glieder zerfetzt,
hast du nach deiner Mutter geschrien bis zuletzt,
bist Du auf Deinen Beinstümpfen weitergerannt,
und dein Grab, birgt es mehr als ein Bein, eine Hand?

Ja, auch Dich haben sie schon genauso belogen
so wie sie es mit uns heute immer noch tun,
und du hast ihnen alles gegeben:
Deine Kraft, Deine Jugend, Dein Leben.

Es blieb nur das Kreuz als die einzige Spur
von deinem Leben, doch hör' meinen Schwur,
für den Frieden zu kämpfen und wachsam zu sein:
Fällt die Menschheit noch einmal auf Lügen herein,
dann kann es gescheh'n, daß bald niemand mehr lebt,
niemand, der die Milliarden von Toten begräbt.
Doch finden sich mehr und mehr Menschen bereit,
diesen Krieg zu verhindern, es ist an der Zeit.

Ja, auch Dich haben sie schon genauso belogen
so wie sie es mit uns heute immer noch tun,
und du hast ihnen alles gegeben:
Deine Kraft, Deine Jugend, Dein Leben.

Ja, auch Dich haben sie schon genauso belogen
so wie sie es mit uns heute immer noch tun,
und du hast ihnen alles gegeben:
Deine Kraft, Deine Jugend, Dein Leben.
This time I was able to find a decent translation online. Smile

English translation
Far in the Champagne in midsummer green
there where poppy flowers bloom between grave crosses
there the grasses whisper and shake themselves effortlessly
in the wind, which gently sweeps over the graveyard
At your cross I find dead soldier,
not your name, only numbers and someone has painted
the number 1916,
and you were not even 19 years old.

Yes, they have also already deceived you similarly
just as they do with us still today,
and you have given them everything:
your strength, your youth, your life.

Have you dead soldier, once loved a girl?
Surely not, because only here, where there is peace,
could tenderness and trust flourish,
were a soldier, about to die, not be too young.
Perhaps you thought to yourself, I will fall soon,
I will take my pleasure, as it comes, with force.
To this end you were determined, you have however then
been ashamed of yourself and never did it.

Yes, they have also already deceived you similarly
just as they do with us still today,
and you have given them everything:
your strength, your youth, your life.

Soldier, did you go believing and gladly to your death?
or have you too doubtfully, bitterly, roughly
not recognized your true enemy until the end?
I hope it hit you a clean shot?
Or has a bullet torn your limbs to pieces,
have you cried out to your mother until the last,
have you on your leg stumps run further,
and your grave, does it hold more than a leg, a hand?

Yes, they have also already deceived you similarly
just as they do with us still today,
and you have given them everything:
your strength, your youth, your life.

There remained only the cross as the single trace
of your life, but hear my oath,
to fight for peace and to be vigilant:
If mankind once again falls for lies here
then it can come to pass, that soon no one lives anymore,
no one, who will bury the millions of dead?
However I find more and more people willing,
to prevent this battle, it is time.

Yes, they have also already deceived you similarly
just as they do with us still today,
and you have given them everything:
your strength, your youth, your life.

Yes, they have also already deceived you similarly
just as they do with us still today,
and you have given them everything:
your strength, your youth, your life.

RE: Favorite Song Lyrics
I'm feeling all kindsa girly right now. Go figure, I'm a girl.
This is one of the only Country songs I like. I think it's beautiful and one doesn't have to think of the lyrics literally. I like a good metaphor:





Stop and stare

I think I'm moving but I go nowhere

Yeah I know that everyone gets scared

But I've become what I can't be, oh

Stop and stare

You start to wonder why you're here not there

And you'd give anything to get what's fair

But fair ain't what you really need

Oh, can you see what I see--One Republic "Stop and Stare"
