I was at a party
And this fella said to me
“Something bad is happening,
I’m sure you do agree.
People care for nothing,
No respect for human rights.
Evil times are coming,
We are in for darker nights.”

I said “who are you
To talk about impending doom?”
He got kinda wary
As he looked around the room
He said, “I’m a minister,
A big shot in the state.”
I said “I just can’t believe it,
Boy, I think it’s great.
Brother, can you tell me
What is right and what is wrong?”
He said, “keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone”

On and on and on
Keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone
On and on and on
‘Til the night is gone

On and on and on
Keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone
On and on and on
‘Til the night is gone

Over in the corner,
I could see this other guy.
He was kinda flirty
He was giving me the eye
So I took advantage
Of the fact that I’m a star
Shook my hair and took
A casual stroll up to the bar
And as sure as hell
This guy was coming up to me
He said, “who am I and
Who are you and who are we?
What’s our situation do
We have some time for us?”
I said, I was not exactly
Waiting for the bus
He said, “if you’re going
Somewhere can I come along?”
I said, “keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone”

On and on and on
Keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone
On and on and on
‘Til the night is gone

On and on and on
Keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone
On and on and on
‘Til the night is gone

On and on and on
Keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone
On and on and on
‘Til the night is gone

On and on and on
Keep on rocking baby
‘Til the night is gone

happy new year

Thursday, January 1st, 2009

No more champagne
And the fireworks are through
Here we are, me and you
Feeling lost and feeling blue
It’s the end of the party
And the morning seems so grey
So unlike yesterday
Now’s the time for us to say…

Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t, we might as well lay down and die
You and I

Sometimes I see
How the brave new world arrives
And I see how it thrives
In the ashes of our lives
Oh yes, man is a fool
And he thinks he’ll be okay
Dragging on, feet of clay
Never knowing he’s astray
Keeps on going anyway…

Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t, we might as well lay down and die
You and I

Seems to me now
That the dreams we had before
Are all dead, nothing more
Than confetti on the floor
It’s the end of a decade
In another ten years time
Who can say what we’ll find
What lies waiting down the line
In the end of eighty-nine…

Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t, we might as well lay down and die
You and I

chiquitita

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

Chiquitita, tell me what’s wrong?
You’re enchained by your own sorrow
In your eyes there is no hope for tomorrow
How I hate to see you like this
There is no way you can deny it
I can see that you’re oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I’m a shoulder you can cry on
Your best friend, I’m the one you must rely on
You were always sure of yourself
Now I see you’ve broken a feather
I hope we can patch it up together

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go
And the scars they’re leaving
You’ll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving

Chiquitita, you and I cry
And the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

So the walls came tumbling down
And your love’s a blown out candle
All is gone and it seems too hard to handle
Chiquitita, tell me the truth
There is no way you can deny it
I see that you’re oh so sad, so quiet

Chiquitita, you and I know
How the heartaches come and they go
And the scars they’re leaving
You’ll be dancing once again and the pain will end
You will have no time for grieving

Chiquitita, you and I cry
And the sun is still in the sky and shining above you
Let me hear you sing once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita
Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

Try once more like you did before
Sing a new song, Chiquitita

the way old friends do

Monday, October 8th, 2007

You and I can share the silence
Finding comfort together
The way old friends do

And after fights and words of violence
We make up with each other
The way old friends do

Times of joy and times of sorrow
We will always see it through
Oh I don’t care what comes tomorrow
We can face it together
The way old friends do

You and I can share the silence
Finding comfort together
The way old friends do

And after fights and words of violence
We make up with each other
The way old friends do

Times of joy and times of sorrow
We will always see it through
Oh I don’t care what comes tomorrow
We can face it together
The way old friends do

We can face it together
The way old friends do

the visitors

Monday, August 27th, 2007

I hear the door-bell ring and suddenly the panic takes me
The sound so ominously tearing through the silence
I cannot move, I’m standing
Numb and frozen
Among the things I love so dearly
The books, the paintings and the furniture
Help me…

The signal’s sounding once again and someone tries the doorknob
None of my friends would be so stupidly impatient
And they don’t dare to come here
Anymore now
But how I loved our secret meetings
We talked and talked in quiet voices
Smiling…

Now I hear them moving
Muffled noises coming through the door
I feel I’m
Crackin’ up
Voices growing louder, irritation building
And I’m close to fainting
Crackin’ up
They must know by now I’m in here trembling
In a terror ever-growing
Crackin’ up
My whole world is falling, going crazy
There is no escaping now, I’m
Crackin’ up

These walls have witnessed all the anguish of humiliation
And seen the hope of freedom glow in shining faces
And now they’ve come to take me
Come to break me
And yet it isn’t unexpected
I have been waiting for these visitors
Help me…

Now I hear them moving
Muffled noises coming through the door
I feel I’m
Crackin’ up
Voices growing louder, irritation building
And I’m close to fainting
Crackin’ up
(I have been waiting for these visitors)
They must know by now I’m in here trembling
In a terror evergrowing
Crackin’ up
(I have been waiting for these visitors)
My whole world is falling, going crazy
There is no escaping now, I’m
Crackin’ up
(I have been waiting for these visitors)
Now I hear them moving
Muffled noises coming through the door
I feel I’m
Crackin’ up
(I have been waiting for these visitors)
Voices growing louder, irritation building
And I’m close to fainting
Crackin’ up
(I have been waiting for these visitors)
They must know by now I’m in here trembling
In a terror evergrowing
Crackin’ up
(I have been waiting for these visitors)
My whole world is falling, going crazy
There is no escaping now, I’m
Crackin’ up

the winner takes it all

Wednesday, December 13th, 2006

I don’t wanna talk
About the things we’ve gone through
Though it’s hurting me,
Now it’s history.
I’ve played all my cards
And that’s what you’ve done too.
Nothing more to say,
No more ace to play.

The winner takes it all
The loser standing small
Beside the victory
That’s her destiny

I was in your arms
Thinking I belonged there
I figured it made sense
Building me a fence
Building me a home
Thinking I’d be strong there
But I was a fool
Playing by the rules

The gods may throw a dice
Their minds as cold as ice
And someone way down here
Loses someone dear
The winner takes it all
The loser has to fall
It’s simple and it’s plain
Why should I complain?

But tell me does she kiss
Like I used to kiss you?
Does it feel the same
When she calls your name?
Somewhere deep inside
You must know I miss you
But what can I say?
Rules must be obeyed

The judges will decide
The likes of me abide
Spectators of the show
Always staying low
The game is on again
A lover or a friend
A big thing or a small
The winner takes it all

I don’t wanna talk
If it makes you feel sad
And I understand
You’ve come to shake my hand
I apologize
If it makes you feel bad
Seeing me so tense
No self-confidence
But you see
The winner takes it all
The winner takes it all

so the winner takes it all
then the loser has to fall
throw the dice, cold as ice
way down here, someone dear
takes it all, has to fall

me and i

Sunday, November 26th, 2006

Sometimes when I’m mad
There’s a part of me that seems to be a little sad
Sometimes when I scream
There’s a voice in me that says, ‘You shouldn’t be so mean’
Oh no, oh no
Part of me is acting while the other stands beside
Yes, I am to myself what Jekyll must have been to Hyde

We’re like sun and rainy weather
Sometimes we’re a hit together
Me and I
Gloomy moods and inspiration
We’re a funny combination
Me and I
I don’t think I’m different or in any way unique
Think about yourself for a minute
And you’ll find the answer in it
Everyone’s a freak

Sometimes I have toyed
With ideas that I got from good old Dr. Freud
Nothing new of course
It may seem to you I try to break through open doors
Oh no, oh no
I just wanna say a lot of that applies to me
‘Cause it’s an explanation to my split identity

We’re like sun and rainy weather
Sometimes we’re a hit together
Me and I
Gloomy moods and inspiration
We’re a funny combination
Me and I
I don’t think I’m different or in any way unique
Think about yourself for a minute
And you’ll find the answer in it
Everyone’s a freak

Me and I…

We’re like sun and rainy weather
Sometimes we’re a hit together
Me and I
Gloomy moods and inspiration
We’re a funny combination
Me and I
I don’t think I’m different or in any way unique
Think about yourself for a minute
And you’ll find the answer in it
Everyone’s a freak

We’re like sun and rainy weather
Sometimes we’re a hit together
Me and I
Gloomy moods and inspiration
We’re a funny combination
Me and I…

andante, andante

Thursday, July 20th, 2006

Take it easy with me, please
Touch me gently like a summer evening breeze
Take your time, make it slow
Andante, Andante
Just let the feeling grow

Make your fingers soft and light
Let your body be the velvet of the night
Touch my soul, you know how
Andante, Andante
Go slowly with me now

I’m your music
(I am your music and I am your song)
I’m your song
(I am your music and I am your song)
Play me time and time again and make me strong
(Play me again ’cause you’re making me strong)
Make me sing, make me sound
(You make me sing and you make me…)
Andante, Andante
Tread lightly on my ground
Andante, Andante
Oh please don’t let me down

There’s a shimmer in your eyes
Like the feeling of a thousand butterflies
Please don’t talk, go on, play
Andante, Andante
And let me float away

I’m your music
(I am your music and I am your song)
I’m your song
(I am your music and I am your song)
Play me time and time again and make me strong
(Play me again ’cause you’re making me strong)
Make me sing, make me sound
(You make me sing and you make me…)
Andante, Andante
Tread lightly on my ground
Andante, Andante
Oh please don’t let me down

Make me sing, make me sound
(You make me sing and you make me…)
Andante, Andante
Tread lightly on my ground
Andante, Andante
Oh please don’t let me down
Andante, Andante
Oh please don’t let me down…

that’s me

Wednesday, December 21st, 2005

Are you sure you wanna hear more?
What if I ain’t worth the while,
Not the style you’d be looking for?
If I’m sweet tonight,
Things look different in the morning light.
I’m jealous and I’m proud,
If you hurt my feelings, I’ll cry out loud.
I’m Carrie-not-the-kind-of-girl-you’d-marry,
That’s me

Are you sure you wanna hear more?
Would I be the one you seek,
Mild and meek like the girl next door?
Don’t you realise
I may be an angel in disguise?
It’s lonely to be free,
But I’m not a man’s toy, I’ll never be.
I’m Carrie-not-the-kind-of-girl-you’d-marry
That’s me.

I don’t believe in fairy-tales,
Sweet nothings in my ear.
But I do believe in sympathy,
That’s me, you see.

Are you sure you wanna hear more?
Won’t you have a drink with me
Just to see you’re not really sore?
I can’t help my ways,
I’m just not the girl to hide my face.
I’m Carrie-not-the-kind-of-girl-you’d-marry
That’s me.

There’s a special love
Like an eagle flying with a dove
I’ll find it in the end
If I keep on searching, but until then
I’m Carrie-not-the-kind-of-girl-you’d-marry
That’s me.

I’m Carrie-not-the-kind-of-girl-you’d-marry
That’s me.

There’s a special love
Like an eagle flying with a dove
I’ll find it in the end
If I keep on searching, but until then
I’m Carrie-not-the-kind-of-girl-you’d-marry
That’s me.
