all I want to do is see you again, is that too much to ask for?

αύριο 🙂

All I want to do is see you again
Is that too much to ask for
I just want to see your sweet smile
Smiled the way it was before
Well I’ll try not to hold you
And I’ll try not to kiss you
And I won’t even touch you

All I want to do is see you
Don’t you know that it’s true

I remember the days when we walked through the woods
We’d sit on a bench for a while
I treasure the way we used to laugh and play
And look in each others eyes
You can keep me at distance if you don’t trust my resistance
But I swear I won’t touch you

Well I know five years is a long time and that times change
But I think that you’ll find people are basically the same

If the water’s still flowing we can go for a swim
And do the things we used to do
And if I’m reluctant you can pull me in
We can relive our youth

But we’ll just stay friendly like sister and brother
Though I think I still love you

Until Always, Commandante!

Aprendimos a quererte
desde la histórica altura
donde el sol de tu bravura
le puso cerco a la muerte.

Aquí se queda la clara,
la entrañable transparencia,
de tu querida presencia
Comandante Che Guevara.

Tu mano gloriosa y fuerte
sobre la historia dispara
cuando todo Santa Clara
se despierta para verte.

Vienes quemando la brisa
con soles de primavera
para plantar la bandera
con la luz de tu sonrisa.

Tu amor revolucionario
te conduce a nueva empresa
donde esperan la firmeza
de tu brazo libertario.

Seguiremos adelante
como junto a ti seguimos
y con Fidel te decimos:
!Hasta siempre, Comandante!

—–

Until Always [English]

We learned to love you
from the heights of history
with the sun of your bravery
you laid siege to death

The deep (or beloved) transparency of your presence
became clear here
Commandante Che Guevara

Your glorious and strong hand
fires at history
when all of Santa Clara
awakens to see you

You come burning the winds
with spring suns
to plant the flag
with the light of your smile

Your revolutionary love
leads you to a new undertaking
where they are awaiting the firmness
of your liberating arm

We will carry on
as we did along with you
and with Fidel we say to you:
Until Always, Commandante!

οι ακτίνες του, πάντα θα με δροσίζουν.

μαζί θα κάψουμε αυτόν τον ήλιο.
πες το κι εσύ!
γιατί δεν το λες?
γιατί είσαι μακριά?
αλλά χαμογελάω.
πιο δυνατός από ποτέ, γελάω!
και δε θα πεθάνω. όχι φέτος.
χα!
το καλοκαίρι είναι δικό μου αυτή τη φορά ρε πούστη!
ναι ναι ναι!
αγαπώ.
ζω.
χαίρομαι.
αναπνέω.
υπάρχω.
ο ήλιος μύρισε μέχρι εδώ.
και μ’ αρέσει τόσο αυτό το άρωμα.
η ζεστασιά του.
ήρθε η ώρα να αγκαλιάσω τη θάλασσα.
…………και μη χανόμαστε.

 

καλές βουτιές παιδάκια.

καλές διακοπέςςς.

Lie, lie to my face
Tell me it ain’t no thing
That’s what I wanna hear
Take your lie to the grave
That’s what and old friend told me
Look what it did for him.

The truth hurts so bad, wouldn’t you say?
So why tell it?
If ignorance is bliss
Then I’m in heaven now

Run, you’ll never escape
You’ll see you go nowhere
Based on where you appear
Broke, laid to waste
Turn into sweet nothings
Kiss you goodbye

The truth hurts so bad, wouldn’t you say?
So why tell it?
If ignorance is bliss
Then I’m in heaven now.

Keep going over and over again
To never ending places I’ve never been
No one’s catching on, calling my bluff
The Devil made me holier than every man.

What’d you do? Say it with a smile
Boy, making us all forget
What’d you do? Say it with a smile
Boy, making us all forget
Making us all forget, making us all forget.

Me and the devil, was walkin’ side by side.

Early this mornin’, when you knocked upon my door
Early this mornin’, ooh, when you knocked upon my door
And I said, «Hello, Satan, I believe it’s time to go»

Me and the devil, was walkin’ side by side
Me and the devil, ooh, was walkin’ side by side
And I’m goin’ to beat my woman, until I get satisfied

She say you don’t see why, that you will dog me ’round
(spoken: Now, babe, you know you ain’t doin’ me right, don’cha)
She say you don’t see why, ooh, that you will dog me ’round
It must-a be that old evil spirit, so deep down in the ground

You may bury my body, down by the highway side
(spoken: Baby, I don’t care where you bury my body when I’m dead and gone)
You may bury my body, ooh, down by the highway side
So my old evil spirit, can catch a Greyhound bus and ride

Matilda’s waiting in Hell for me.

I studied evil, I can’t deny,
Was a hoodoo charm called a Love Me or Die,
Some fingernail, a piece of her dress,
Apocathery, Devil’s behes’
I will relate, the piteous consequence my mistake,
Fallin slave to passin’ desire,
Makin’ the dreaded Love me or Die.

Against a Jungle primeval green,
She had the looks of a beauty queen
No bangles or chain, wearin’ broken shoe
Seventy-five cent bottle perfume.
I said, «Good mornin», I tipped my hat,
All the while I was cunning like a rat,
Smilin gaily, looked her in the eye,
I felt in pocket, the Love me or Die

My past history, one to behold,
I studied magic from days of old,
Membership, secret societies,
Power and wealth in my family
But Matilda, Darling,
Why you don’t take my wedding ring,
Like a demon under the floor,
I buried the hoodoo down the back door.

Lawd, word broke through the town,
That a fever strike Matilda down,
Nine thirty, the doctor arrive,
Priest come runnin, quarter to five.
Standin in the weeds early next day,
I saw the meat wagon rollin away,
I seen Matilda layin in the back,
Her old mother wearin a suit of black

Sound the trumpet, and bang the drum,
I wait for me judgement to come,
I know her spirit is down beneath,
I hear the weepin and gnashing of the teeth.
Flames of Hell licks at my feet,
In the shadow of the Jungle I feel the heat,
Matilda’s waiting in Hell for me too,
All cause she died from a bad hoodoo.

into the wild.

είναι το βουνό.
είναι η φύση.
είναι η δροσιά που σε κάνει να αναπνέεις με άλλους ρυθμούς.
οι βόλτες που κάνουμε. οι πεζοπορίες. οι ανηφόρες.
όσες φορές ερχόμαστε εδώ -γελάς?-.
σηκώνεις το κεφάλι, τα αστέρια είναι άπειρα από πάνω μας, και το φεγγάρι ανεβαίνει όλο και πιο ψηλά όσο η νύχτα ενηλικιώνεται.
οι μουσικές πετούν ανάμεσα στα κλαδιά και εμείς χορεύουμε.
πάλι.
μέχρι το πρωί.
λουζόμαστε στις λίμνες, λικνιζόμαστε μες στα ποτάμια και επιβιώνουμε μέσα σε σπηλιές.
ο Σούπερτραμπ χαμογελά στον φακό.
το φως διαπερνά την κάμερα μα και την μνήμη μου.
πάλι χάθηκα.
κάθε φορά.
μέσα στην άγρια φύση.
στην αγνότητα του είναι και στην αυθεντικότητα της στιγμής.
πάμε να φύγουμε.
ΤΩΡΑ.

ο Έρωτας τον Θάνατο μπόρεσε να νικήσει.

από άλλο πλανήτη αυτό το cd.

Στης πικροδάφνης τον ανθό και στης ιτιάς το δάκρυ
που στάζει όλο παράπονο στης ποταμιάς την άκρη
στου κόρφου σου τα βότανα και στην ποδιά σου πάνω
έγειρα να αποκοιμηθώ, τον πυρετό να γιάνω

Έκλεισα τα ματάκια μου κι είδα όνειρο μεγάλο
πως σε μια αυλή, για χάρη σου, πάλευα με το χάρο
Και φώναξες σαν σ’ άρπαξε και μ’ είδες να σαστίζω:
«μη με φοβάσαι αγάπη μου λιβάνι κι αν μυρίζω,
μόνο σκουλήκι να γενείς, να ‘ρθεις να μ’ ανταμώσεις
κρυφά στο σώμα μου να μπεις, γλυκό φιλί να δώσεις
Ένα φιλί αλλιώτικο που ανάσα δε θα φέρνει
μα μες στης γης τις μυρωδιές τα κάλλη μου θα σπέρνει»

Σκουλήκι γίνηκα κι εγώ κι ήρθα να σ’ ανταμώσω,
κρυφά στο σώμα σου να μπω, γλυκά φιλιά να δώσω
Στο έμπα χίλια σου ‘δωκα, στο έβγα δυο χιλιάδες,
γλυκά να λιώσεις, να χυθείς, σαν τις χλωμές λαμπάδες

Κι εκεί στης γης τις μυρωδιές, στην παιχνιδιάρα σήψη
ο Έρωτας τον Θάνατο μπόρεσε να νικήσει
Απ’ τα φιλιά που χάρισα στα κάλλη του κορμιού σου
λουλούδι φύτρωσε μικρό που πίνει απ’ τους χυμούς σου
Λουλούδι που κι αν μαραθεί τη μυρωδιά δε χάνει
γιατί δακρύζει σαν ιτιά κι ανθεί σαν πικροδάφνη

…and at once I knew I was not magnificent.

ναι ρε πούστη.
το φετινό καλοκαίρι μοιάζει πανέμορφο.
μην το ματιάσωωωω!

“Someway, baby, it’s part of me, apart from me.”
you’re laying waste to Halloween
you fucked it friend, it’s on it’s head, it struck the street
you’re in Milwaukee, off your feet

…and at once I knew I was not magnificent
strayed above the highway aisle
(jagged vacance, thick with ice)
I could see for miles, miles, miles

3rd and Lake it burnt away, the hallway
was where we learned to celebrate
automatic bought the years you’d talk for me
that night you played me ʻLip Paradeʼ
not the needle, nor the thread, the lost decree
saying nothing, that’s enough for me

…and at once I knew I was not magnificent
hulled far from the highway aisle
(jagged, vacance, thick with ice)
I could see for miles, miles, miles

Christmas night, it clutched the light, the hallow bright
above my brother, I and tangled spines
we smoked the screen to make it what it was to be
now to know it in my memory:

…and at once I knew I was not magnificent
high above the highway aisle
(jagged vacance, thick with ice)
I could see for miles, miles, miles


Συνέχεια

όταν η θάλασσα αναπνέει.

01610003

τα κύματα σου με χαϊδεύουν, με νανουρίζουν.
οι παφλασμοί των σκέψεών σου είναι η ουτοπία της αυγής μου.
-στο ηλιοβασίλεμα γεννήθηκαν και ταξίδεψαν σε άγνωστες αβύσσους-
τα κοχύλια πάντα θα μου δίνουν τη θάλασσα στα αυτιά μου, χωρίς τον καρχαρία που διψά για το αίμα του χορευτή της τελευταίας παράστασης των κύκνων.
ο ήλιος πετά από πάνω μας.
και μας δροσίζει με τη φωτιά του.
και χορεύουμε κι εμείς, σε μια τρελή αμμουδιά με τρελά παιδιά και τρελά όνειρα.
ποιος μπορεί να μας στερήσει αυτό το καλοκαίρι?
γελάμε.
παίζουμε.
ερωτευόμαστε.
και βουτάμε στα αλατισμένα νερά με κλειστά τα μάτια.
φιλιόμαστε.
υπάρχουμε σε ένα κενό που γεμίζει από στιγμές και ερημικές οάσεις συναισθημάτων.
υπάρχουν οι νότες – τις βλέπεις ή μόνο τις ακούς?-
υπάρχει το τέλος
υπάρχει η αρχή
και ναι, υπάρχεις εσύ.
πουθενά, κάπου, παντού.

μην αργείς.
το καλοκαίρι μας είναι εδώ.
το καίμε μαζί?

from dusk till dawn.

Watching her
Strolling in the night
So white
Wondering why
It’s only After Dark

In her eyes
A distant fire light
burns bright
Wondering why
It’s only After Dark

I find myself in her room
Feel the fever of my doom
Falling falling
Through the floor
I’m knocking on the Devil’s door

In the Dawn
I wake up to find
her gone
And a note says
Only After Dark

Burning burning
in the flame
Now I know her
secret name
You can tear her temple down
But she’ll be back
and rule again

In my heart
A deep and dark
and lonely part
Wants her and
waits for After Dark

Don’t wanna lose you!

Don’t wanna lose you, don’t wanna lose,
Don’t wanna lose you, don’t wanna lose.
I never knew you, I never knew,
I never knew you, I never knew.
Your body’s harmful, the very shape.
The cracks are deeper, on every plate.

Don’t wanna lose you, don’t wanna lose,
Don’t wanna lose you, don’t wanna lose.
I get impatient, with every word.
The more you ask me, the more I’ve heard.
This is a thirst that I’ve never had,
I’ve never bled for another man.

Don’t wanna lose you, don’t wanna lose,
Don’t wanna lose you, don’t wanna lose.

My face screams,
My face screams,
My face screams without an emotion.

In the darkness comes, another, another.
Hold her by the thumbs, the other, the other.
(Don’t wanna lose you, don’t wanna lose,
Don’t wanna lose you, don’t wanna lose)

In the darkness comes, another, another.
Hold her by the thumbs, the other, the other.

hear our voice say.

Who would said and who would done.
Who would passed and who has nothing.
Let it be said it was not what is was,
it is just resting on my shoulders

Hear are voice say , don’t I know enough
Hear are voice say , don’t I know enough

In the pine there is suddled snakes, don’t I know enough
Another corn and the wolves are in the yard, don’t I know enough
cluddled flock of dangerous thougts, don’t I know enough
i wil tire in softly mode, don’t I know enough

Hear are voice say , don’t I know enough

Every time you close your eyes, lies, lies!

Sleeping is giving in,
no matter what the time is.
Sleeping is giving in,
so lift those heavy eyelids.

People say that you’ll die
faster than without water.
But we know it’s just a lie,
scare your son, scare your daughter.

People say that your dreams
are the only things that save ya.
Come on baby in our dreams,
we can live on misbehavior.

Every time you close your eyes
Lies, lies!
Every time you close your eyes
Lies, lies!
Every time you close your eyes
Lies, lies!
Every time you close your eyes
Lies, lies!
Every time you close your eyes
Every time you close your eyes
Every time you close your eyes
Every time you close your eyes

People try and hide the night
underneath the covers.
People try and hide the light
underneath the covers.

Come on hide your lovers underneath the covers
come on hide your lovers
underneath the covers.

Hidin’ from your brothers
underneath the covers,
come on hide your lovers
underneath the covers.

People say that you’ll die
faster than without water,
but we know it’s just a lie,
scare your son, scare your daughter,
Scare your son, scare your daughter.
Scare your son, scare your daughter.

Now here’s the sun, it’s alright!
(Lies, lies!)
Now here’s the moon, it’s alright!
(Lies, lies!)
Now here’s the sun, it’s alright!
(Lies, lies!)
Now here’s the moon it’s alright
(Lies, lies!)

Every time you close your eyes
Lies, lies!
Every time you close your eyes
Lies, lies!
Every time you close your eyes
Lies, lies!
Every time you close your eyes
Lies, lies!

Every time you close your eyes

Every time you close your eyes

Every time you close your eyes

Lies, lies!

I do not exist only YOU exist.

In a sweater poorly knit, and an unsuspecting smile
Little Moses drifts downstream in the Nile
A fumbling reply — an awkward, rigid laugh
I’m carried helpless by my floating basket raft

Your flavor in my mind swings back and forth between sweeter than any wine, and bitter as mustard greens
Light and dark as honeydew and pumpernickle bread

The trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead

As you plow some other field and try and forget my name, see what harvest yields, and, supposing I’d do the same
I planted rows of peas, but by the first week of july — they should have come up to my knees but they were maybe ankle high

Take the fingers from your flute to weave your colored yarns, and boil down your fruit to preserves in mason jars

But now books are overdue and the goats are underfed… the trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead

You’re a door-without-a-key, a field-without-a-fence
You made a holy fool of me, and I’ve thanked you ever since
If she comes circling back, we’ll end where we’d begun
Like two pennies on the train track the train crushed into one

But if I’m a crown without a king, if I’m a broken, open seed
If I come without a thing, I come with all I need
No boat out in the blue, no place to rest your head
The trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead

I
do
not
exist
only
YOU
exist

Αχ μικρούλα μου που περνάς στα στενά δρομάκια των 19!

Αχ μικρούλα μου που περνάς στα στενά δρομάκια των δεκαεννιά
Στ’ άγρια χαράματα, την αυγή άκουσε ψιθυριστά τι θα σου πει
«κάθε πονηριά της ΄Ευας θα πονά, κι αυτό ποτέ μικρή μου να μην το ξεχνάς»

αχ μικρούλα μου που νωρίς ξύπνησες απότομα πριν κοιμηθείς
κάτι μεσ’ τον ύπνο σου σαν πουλί, σου ‘λεγε ψιθυριστά απ’ την αρχή
«κάθε πονηριά της ΄Ευας θα πονά, κι αυτό ποτέ μικρή μου να μην το ξεχνάς»

Home is wherever I’m with you.

χρόνια πολλά!!!

Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa
Not the way that I do love you

Holy roly, me, oh my, you’re the apple of my eye
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Man, oh man, you’re my best friend, I scream it to the nothingness
There ain’t nothin’ that I need

Well, hot & heavy, pumpkin pie, chocolate candy, Jesus Christ
There ain’t nothin’ please me more than you

Chorus:
Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you

La la la la, take me Home
Baby, I’m coming Home

I’ll follow you into the park, through the jungle, through the dark
Girl, I’ve never loved one like you

Moats & boats & waterfalls, alley ways & pay phone calls
I’ve been everywhere with you

That’s true

We laugh until we think we’ll die, barefoot on a summer night
Nothin’ new is sweeter than with you

And in the sticks we’re running free like it’s only you and me
Geez, you’re something to see.

“Jade?”
“Alexander?”
“Do you remember that day you fell out of my window?”
“I sure do, you came jumping out after me.”
“Well, you fell on the concrete and nearly broke your ass and you were bleeding all over the place and I rushed you off to the hospital. Do you remember that?”
“Yes, I do.”
“Well, there’s something I never told you about that night.”
“What didn’t you tell me?”
“While you were sitting in the backseat smoking a cigarette you thought was going to be your last, I was falling deep, deeply in love with you and I never told you ‘til just now.”
“Now I know.”

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is whenever I’m with you
Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is when I’m alone with you

Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you

Ahh, Home
Yes, I am Home
Home is when I’m alone with you.

Alabama, Arkansas, I do love my Ma & Pa
Moats & boats & waterfalls & pay phone calls

Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is wherever I’m with you
Ahh, Home
Let me come Home
Home is when I’m alone with you
