Come a little bit closer Hear what I have to say Just like children sleepin' We could dream this night away. But there's a full moon risin' Let's go dancin' in the light We know where the music's playin' Let's go out and feel the night. Because I'm still in love with you I want to see you dance again Because I'm still in love with you On this harvest moon. When we were strangers I watched you from afar When we were lovers I loved you with all my heart. But now it's gettin' late And the moon is climbin' high I want to celebrate See it shinin' in your eye. Because I'm still in love with you I want to see you dance again Because I'm still in love with you On this harvest moon.

The cut-rate mime walking through the dirty streets Of paris in the hot august heat Sun melting the fake smile away Just looking for a place to stay The actress gave up all her old dreams And traded up now she is a queen Royal families don't have time for that shit Your crystal ball - you keep it hid The tractor-trailer driver radios: Help me someone i'm out here all alone Truck driving the black night away Praying for the light of day The kid in the mall works at hawt dawg on a stick His hat is a funny shape his heart is a brick Taking your order he will look away He doesn't have a thing to say But me i'm feeling pretty good as of now I'm not so sure when i got here or how Sun melting the fake smile away I think, you know, i'll be okay

I am an American aquarium drinker I assassin down the avenue I'm hiding out in the big city blinking What was I thinking when I let go of you? Let's forget about the tongue-tied lightning Let's undress just like cross-eyed strangers This is not a joke, so please stop smiling What was I thinking when I said it didn't hurt? I want to glide through those brown eyes dreaming Take it from the inside, baby hold on tight You were so right when you said that I've been drinking What was I thinking when I said good night? I want to hold you in the Bible-black predawn You're quite a quiet domino, bury me now Take off your Band-Aid cause I don't believe in touchdowns What was I thinking when I said hello? I'd always thought that if I held you tightly You'd always love me like you did back then Then I fell asleep and the city kept blinking What was I thinking when I let you back in? I am trying to break your heart I am trying to break your heart But still I'd be lying if I said it wasn't easy I am trying to break your heart Disposeible Dixie-cup drinking I assassin down the avenue I'm hiding out in the big city blinking What was I thinking whe n I let go of you? loves you I'm the man who loves you

Got no time for the corner boys, down in the street makin' all that noise, don't want no whores on eighth avenue, cause tonight i'm gonna be with you. Cause tonight i'm gonna take that ride, across the river to the jersey side, take my baby to the carnival, and i'll take you, on all the rides, Down the shore everything's alright, you with your baby on a saturday night, don't you know all my dreams come true, when i'm walkin', down the street with you Sing sha la la la la la sha la la la la la la la sha la la la la la la la sha la la la I'm in love with a Jersey Girl Sing sha la la la la la sha la la la. You know she thrills me with all her charms, when i'm wrapped up in my baby's arms, my little angel gives me everything, i know someday that she'll wear my ring. So don't bother me cause i got no time, Am on my way to see that girl of mine, nothin' else matters in this whole wide world, when you're in love with a jersey girl, Sing sha la la la la la sha la la la la la la la sha la la la la la la la sha la la la I'm in love with a Jersey Girl Sing sha la la la la la sha la la la. And I call your name I can't sleep at night,

Hey little girl is your daddy home? Did he go away and leave you all alone? I got a bad desire I'm on fire Tell me now baby is he good to you? Can he do to you the things that I do? I can take you higher I'm on fire Sometimes it's like someone took a knife, baby, edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley through the middle of my soul At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet and a freight train running through the middle of my head and you You cool my desire Oh, I'm on fire Oh, I'm on fire I'm on fire.

I know somewhere There is a party going down Interesting people Conversation to be found I've lived in cities Where there is no solitude I've made some friends here That I hope I never lose But, for now I want to stay in this quiet town The neighbors on my block They've got stories to tell This is the grocery But, once was a hotel And Mr. Driscoli he just stands there With his smile Inviting everyone he sees To come inside This is the life I want to live in a quiet town Ohhhh Sometimes I miss the show I learned a long time ago Ohhhh Sometimes I miss the show I learned a long time ago Come Sunday morning There's a market on the square Children are playing Bells are ringing in the air Old men are drinking It's a lazy afternoon Content with thinking That there is nothing to do But, for now I'm going to stay in this quiet town In this quiet town In this quiet town

Some days are diamonds Some days are rocks Some doors are open Some roads are blocked Sundowns are golden Then fade away But if I never do nothing I'm coming back some day Cause you got a heart so big It could crush this town And I can't hold out forever Even walls fall down All around your island There's a barricade It keeps out the danger Keeps in the pain Sometimes you're happy And sometimos you cry Half of me is ocean Half of me is sky But you got a heart so big It could crush this town And I can't hold out forever Even walls fall down And some things are over Some things go on Part of me you carry And part of me is gone But you got a heart so big It could crush this town And I can't hold out forever Even walls fall down You got a heart so big It could crush this town And I can't hold out forever Even walls fall down

They say ev'rything can be replaced, Yet ev'ry distance is not near. So I remember ev'ry face Of ev'ry man who put me here. I see my light come shining From the west unto the east. Any day now, any day now, I shall be released. They say ev'ry man needs protection, They say ev'ry man must fall. Yet I swear I see my reflection Some place so high above this wall. I see my light come shining From the west unto the east. Any day now, any day now, I shall be released. Standing next to me in this lonely crowd, Is a man who swears he's not to blame. All day long I hear him shout so loud, Crying out that he was framed. I see my light come shining From the west unto the east. Any day now, any day now, I shall be released.

Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane,
 Ain't got time to take a fast train.
 Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,
 'Cause my baby just a-wrote me a letter. I don't care how much money I gotta spend, Got to get back to my baby again 
 Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,
 'Cause my baby just a-wrote me a letter. Well, she wrote me a letter 
 Said she couldn't live without me no mo'. 
Listen mister can't you see I got to get back 
 To my baby once a-mo'--anyway... Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane,
 Ain't got time to take a fast train.
 Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home,
 'Cause my baby just a-wrote me a letter. Well, she wrote me a letter 
 Said she couldn't live without me no mo'.
 Listen mister can't you see I got to get back 
 To my baby once a-mo'--anyway... Gimme a ticket for an aeroplane,
 Ain't got time to take a fast train.
 Lonely days are gone, I'm a-goin' home, 'Cause my baby just a-wrote me a letter.
 Because my baby just a-wrote me a letter.

This year's love had better last, heaven knows it's high time, I've been waiting on my own too long. And when you hold me like you do it feels so right, oh now I start to forget how my heart gets torn when the hurt gets thrown feeling like you can't go on Turning circles and time again cut like a knife oh now if you love me gotta know for sure 'cause it takes something more this time than sweet sweet lies oh now before I open up my arms and fall losing all control every dream inside my soul when you kiss me on that midnight street sweep me off my feet singing ain't this life so sweet This year's love had better last This year's love had better last 'Cause who's to worry if our hearts get torn when that hurt get thrown don't you know this life goes on won't you kiss me on that midnight street sweep me off my feet singing ain't this life so sweet This year's love had better last This year's love had better last This year's love had better last This year's love had better last

On voit des autoroutes, des hangars, des marchés Des grandes enseignes rouges et des parking bondés On voit des paysages qui ne ressemblent à rien Qui se ressemblent tous et qui n'ont pas de fin Rendez-nous la lumière, rendez-nous la beauté Le monde était si beau et nous l'avons gâché Rendez-nous la lumière, rendez-nous la beauté Si le monde était beau nous l'avons gâché On voit de pleins rayons, de bêtes congelées Leurs peurs prête à mâcher par nos dents vermillons On voit l'écriture blanche des années empilées Tous les jours c'est dimanche, tous les jours c'est plié Rendez-nous la lumière, rendez-nous la beauté Le monde était si beau et nous l'avons gâché Rendez-nous la lumière, rendez-nous la beauté Si le monde était beau nous l'avons gâché On goûte au vieux mensonges des cieux embrigadés Tant de vies sacrifiées pour du cristal qui ronge On voit des fumées hautes, des nuages possédés Des pluies oranges et mauves donnant d'affreux baisers Rendez-nous la lumière, rendez-nous la beauté Le monde était si beau et nous l'avons gâché Rendez-nous la lumière, rendez-nous la beauté Si le monde était beau nous l'avons gâché

Me pongo a pintarte y no lo consigo, despues de estudiarte lentamente termino pensando que faltan sobre mi paleta colores intensos que reflejan tu rara belleza no puedo captar tu sonrisa plasmar tu mirada pero poco a poco sólo pienso en ti sólo pienso en ti sólo pienso en ti sólo pienso en ti Tu sigues viniendo y sigues posando con mucha paciencia porque siempre mi lienzo esta en blanco las horas se pasan volando y hay poco trabajo adelantado para tu retrato sospecho que no tienes prisa y que te complace ver que poco a poco sólo pienso en ti sólo pienso en ti sólo pienso en ti sólo pienso en ti

Sentados en corro merendábamos, besos y porros y las horas pasaban deprisa entre el humo y la risa. Te morías por volver con la frente marchita cantaba Gardel y entre citas de Borges, Evita bailaba con Freud, ya llovió desde aquel chaparrón hasta hoy. Iba cada domingo a tu puesto del rastro a comprarte carricoches de miga de pan, soldaditos de lata. Con aguita del mar andaluz quise yo enamorarte pero tú no querías más amor que el del río de la plata. Duró la tormenta hasta entrados los años ochenta luego el sol fue secando la ropa de la vieja Europa. No hay nostalgia peor que añorar lo que nunca jamás sucedió mándame una postal de San Telmo, adiós cuídate y sonó entre tú y yo el silbato del tren. Iba cada domingo a tu puesto del rastro a comprarte monigotes de miga de pan, caballitos de lata. Con aguita de un mar andaluz quise yo enamorarte pero tú no tenías otro amor que el de río de la plata. Aquellas banderas de la patria de la primavera a decirme que existe el olvido esta noche han venido te sentaba tan bien esa boina calada al estilo del Ché Buenos Aires es como contabas, hoy fui a pasear y al llegar a la plaza de mayo me dio por llorar y me puse a gritar ¿donde estás? Y no volví más a tu puesto del rastro a comprarte corazones de miga de pan, sombreritos de lata. Y ya nadie me escribe diciendo no consigo olvidarte ojalá que estuvieras conmigo en el río de la plata Y no volví más a tu puesto del rastro a comprarte carricoches de miga de pan, soldaditos de lata.

Hoy tengo un día de ésos en que mandaría todo a hacer puñetas, incluso firmaría con placer el acta de mi rendición... Diría "adiós a todo eso" como Graves o incluso en plan asceta me subiría a una columna en el desierto como un San Simón. O, como Onetti, acaso intentaría no dejar jamás el lecho o pillaría el primer vuelo al Himalaya para hacerme Zen... Pero, maldita sea, cómo dar el salto de lo dicho al hecho, contigo, ahí, desnuda, repitiéndome: "amor mío ven, ven, ven..." Sólo por ti sigo aquí, imán de mujer, imán de mujer... me voy a perder pero sin salir de ti. Que el mundo fue y será una porquería ya lo dijo Enrique Santos y hoy tengo un día de esos en que sufro toda esa poesía cruel, aunque que temo que yo mismo soy quien me produzco más espanto al verme comprendiendo las razones de Caín matando a Abel. Me fugaría a Transilvania para convertirme en un vampiro para no ver tras el espejo al bicho infame que dice ser yo... Pero me abrazas y aún sabiendo que tus brazos son un mal retiro, me tiro a tus infiernos donde habita el diablo que te recreó... Sólo por ti sigo aquí, imán de mujer, imán de mujer... me voy a perder pero sin salir de ti.

Babieca (Sr. Chinarro) (free) 05:11
La noche pasada soñé Que Murcia iba a desaparecer, La noche pasada soñé Que Murcia iba a desaparecer. La noche pasada soñé, Granada ya no existía, Ni rastro de Almería, La noche pasada soñé. No, no sé para qué, No sé para qué me desperté. Tu voz me sacaba del catre, Me decía que fuera, Tu voz me sacaba del catre, Yo atravesaba Alicante, Diez tierras que hubiera delante Conocerían mi espada. Más Babieca que yo aquí no hay, Más Babieca que yo aquí no hay, Más Babieca que yo aquí no hay, no. Mi espada era Tizona Y mi caballo Babieca. Mi espada era Tizona, Tú eras doña Jimena. Crucé un desierto de pena Que parecía Arizona. Era una tierra de infieles, De muchos gitanos y payos, Era una tierra de infieles, La que vi a lomos de mi caballo, Eran la tira de pieles Para hacer de mi capa un sayo. Más Babieca que yo aquí no hay. Con caballo o sin él, Será mejor que vaya a donde estés, Será mejor que vaya a donde estés, Será mejor que vaya a donde estés. Autores de la canción: a. luque / j. gil / j. vega / p. cabra

Con la mirada vuelta hacia lo lejos, en el declive lento del verano, en el movimiento del agua y sus reflejos, allí te esperaré. En el límite impreciso del desvelo su fulgor desvanecido ya lejano, en la inconsciencia blanca del deshielo, allí te esperaré. Allí donde los otoños se empiezan a dorar, las decepciones humedecen las paredes de este bar, donde a los cielos se sube en ascensor, allí te esperaré. En las cimas más altas de la desesperación, en las promesas incumplidas de cualquier canción, entre las sílabas torcidas del amor, allí te esperaré. En las cumbres escarpadas en los altos, en el renacer de una derrota, en las cenizas que aún siguen humeando, allí te esperaré. Con el impacto desarmante de un "te quiero", como brújula la punta de mis botas, allí donde el dolor es menos fiero, allí te esperaré. Allí donde la culpa lleva trajes a medida, y un nuevo comienzo dura media vida, allí donde no hay nada que esperar, allí te esperaré. Allí donde las cosas son lo que parecen, donde el tiempo es una línea que desaparece, allí de donde no se puede regresar, allí te esperaré. Allí donde las mareas desnudan a las rocas, las plegarias atendidas nos parecen pocas, las tentaciones florecen en las ramas, allí te esperaré. Donde los enamorados aúllan a la luna, de las flechas en mi pecho saqué todas menos una, allí donde estoy cuando me llamas, allí te esperaré. Con apenas corazón y el alma en un costado, te dejo un hueco siempre para que sigas a mi lado, allí donde los finales se terminan, allí te esperaré. Con el acelerador pisado hasta el fondo, los amaneceres envejecen pronto, las lonas del pasado cubren las piscinas, yo allí te esperaré. Diego Vasallo.
