Baby, good-bye
Divine, oh Divine
Falling like a picture of time
Oh he was the Mother of America
He was my self-determined guru
Myself, I hold your big fat heart in my hands
And I hold your burning heart in my hands
A supernova
A flame on fire
Shining in the darkness
Did someone mention a rapture
Well I turn to think of you
Who walked the way with so much pain
Who holds the mirror up to fools
And I'll murder the ingrates
Who stand in our way!
And I'll swallow shit, laughing
On my bed of hay!
And I hold your big fat heart in my hands
And I hold your burning heart in my hands
A supernova
A flame on fire
Shining in the darkness
A supernova
A flame on fire
Shining in the darkness!"

"Divine" Antony and the Johnsons

"The measure of my dreams!"

"I've been loving you a long time
Down all the years, down all the days
And I've cried for all your troubles
Smiled at your funny little ways
We watched our friends grow up together
And we saw them as they fell
Some of them fell into Heaven
Some of them fell into Hell
I took shelter from a shower

And I stepped into your arms
On a rainy night in Soho
The wind was whistling all its charms
I sang you all my sorrows
You told me all your joys
Whatever happened to that old song
To all those little girls and boys
Sometimes I wake up in the morning

The gingerlady by my bed
Covered in a cloak of silence
I hear you talking in my head
I'm not singing for the future
I'm not dreaming of the past
I'm not talking of the first time
I never think about the last
Now the song is nearly over

We may never find out what it means
Still there's a light I hold before me
You're the measure of my dreams
The measure of my dreams."

The Pogues "Rainy night in Soho"

"While the sinners sin..."

"Bring tea for the Tillerman
Steak for the sun
Wine for the women who made the rain come
Seagulls sing your hearts away'
Cause while the sinners sin, the children play
Oh Lord how they play and play
For that happy day, for that happy day."

Cat Stevens "Tea for the Tillerman"

"You've got to fight to keep your legenday love"

"Legendary hearts, tearing us up apart with stories of their love
Their great transcendant loves
While we stand here and fight
And lose another night of legendary love
Legendary loves haunt me in my sleep
Promises to keep, I never should have made
I can't live up to this,
I'm good for just a kiss
Not legendary love.
Romeo, oh Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo
He's in a car or at a bar
Or churning his blood with an impure drug
He's in the past and seems to be lost forever
He worked hard at being good
But his basic soul was stained not pure
And when he took his bow, no audience was clapping
Legendary hearts, tear us all apart
Make our emotions bleed, crying out in need
No legendary love is coming from above
It's in this room right now
And you've got to fight to make what's righ
You've got to fight to keep your legendary love"

Lou Reed "Legendary Hearts"

"Blue Angel"

"Blue angel
It's the memory of your warmth

That keeps me alive
When I'm burning
And my world's closing in
Oh I'm on fire
Oh I'm on fire
I hold on to a wheel of burning fear
Oh I'm on fire
Oh I'm on fire
And then the sky is falling in
And I see your eyes
Hiding in the shadows
Hiding in the flames
Oh I'm on fire
Oh I'm on fire
I'm on fire...
When I feel like I am dying

And soon I shall expire
I'm on fire
Oh I'm on fire
I'm on fire
Why is that
That I feel like
I'm on fire
Blue angel"

Antony & The Johnsons "Blue Angel"

"Somos filhos da madrugada..."

"...Pelas praias do mar nos vamos
À procura de quem nos traga
Verde oliva de flor no ramo
Navegamos de vaga em vaga
Não soubemos de dor nem mágoa
Pelas praias do mar nos vamos
À procura da manhã clara
Lá do cimo duma montanha
Acendemos uma fogueira
Para não se apagar a chama
Que dá vida na noite inteira
Mensageira pomba chamada
Companheira da madrugada
Quando a noite vier que venha
Lá do cimo duma montanha
Onde o vento cortou amarras
Largaremos pela noite fora
Onde há sempre uma boa estrela
Noite e dia ao romper da aurora
Vira a proa minha galera
Que a vitória ja não espera
Fresca brisa, moira encantada
Vira a proa da minha barca"

Zeca Afonso "Filhos da Madrugada"

"Aunque no sé tocar la gaita..."

"La oliva ha sido amarga
aunque lo querías dulce
por esa dulzura
te quiero entera.
Aunque no sé tocar la gaita
me siento gallego
si se pudiese cambiar
la nacionalidad de vez en cuando..."

Tapia Eta Leturia "Wafa"
