I do what I want when I want!



You had a dream about loss
within the fruit there are worms
yet still a vow to dare goodnight
you had a dream about love

Could it be you were the one
who is waiting patiently for me
to disregard caution
to feign deafness to wisdom,
could it be you were the one
who is waiting insanely for me
to bind your limbs stoutly
to feign deafness to protest

You ask unhurried by doom
the shot only bursts forth heat
bequeath a sigh if I would listen
you ask unhurried by love

Could it be you were the one
who is waiting patiently for me
to stare blindly at forethought
to disregard caution,
could it be you were the one
who is waiting insanely for me
to tweak your cheeks unsweetly
to insist on concession

in the morning



Shut the bedroom window in the morning
Go to the shop, make plans to be leaving
In the morning...
Thought Ι was sleeping,
It was just a dream,
An alleycat chewing on dead leaves
In the morning...

Out of the dark and into the light
When the morning comes
I will be alright

When Ι leave Ι try not to wake her
Tiana toast to yesterday's capers
In the morning....

She wrote my name on a red telephone box
When Ι got there she'd already rubbed it off
In the morning....

Out of the dark and into the light
When the morning comes Ι will be alright

And all this time Ι've watched it change
But it's still the same

In the morning...
In the morning...
In the morning...
In the morning...

έλα, κερνάω καφέ στην πλατεία!




Όπου κι αν πας θα 'σαι πάντα εδώ
θα 'χεις κλειδί και θ' ανοίγεις την πόρτα
όμως φοβάμαι μωρό μου μη φύγω εγώ
έλα να πάμε οι δυο μας μια βόλτα.

Πάμε στον Άδωνι για καφέ
που πηγαίνουν τεκνά και φρικιά
και αράζουνε και αθλητές
και που πηγαίνει και μία χοντρή νευρικιά
Κυριακή να της φύγει το στρες.

Κι όλα μοιάζουν ένα τίποτα
και κυκλοφορούν ανύποπτα
κι είσαι η λαχτάρα μου
ο καφές και τα τσιγάρα μου.

Ό,τι κι αν ζήσουμε το 'χουμε δει
σαν μία σκηνή από άλλη ταινία
Κι όλος ο κόσμος, μωρό μου, μπορεί και το ζει
έλα, κερνάω καφέ στην πλατεία.

καλό σας βράδυ!

το όχι αποκοιμήθηκε στην αγκαλιά του ναι


Ανάμεσα στο όχι
και στο κρυμμένο ναι
χάθηκε η ζωή μου
μεγάλε ουρανέ.

Δεν κρύβεται στη νύχτα
το άσπρο γιασεμί.
Λύγισε η αγάπη όταν είπες μη,
λύγισε η αγάπη όταν είπες μη.

Βγαίνω στον αέρα
με χάρτινο φτερό.
Μακριά σου δεν αντέχω,
κοντά σου δε μπορώ.
Κοντά σου δεν αντέχω,
μακριά σου δε μπορώ.

Χαμήλωσε τα φώτα
μεγάλε ουρανέ,
το όχι αποκοιμήθηκε
στην αγκαλιά του ναι,
το όχι αποκοιμήθηκε
στην αγκαλιά του ναι.

οnly when you're gone







Only when you're gone
Only when you're gone
Only when you're gone
And away
Only when you're gone
Gonna need a hammer and nails
To construct this bitter love song
This cruel testamented song
That rings out only when you're gone
Only when you're gone
Only when you're gone
Only when you're gone
And away
Only when you're gone
Oh

Rude are the tongues of love
That speak of mercy for us all
And leave us only with a song
And leave us only with a song
Now it's a cold and hollow whisper
That consoles my body when you're gone
Only when you're gone
Only when you're gone
Only when you're gone
And away
Only when you're gone
Oh

And it's only when you're gone
And away
Your ghost runs through me in that special way
It's a nice old town
My hometown
Come for the darkness in this prison cell
I love you long and I love you well

So bury me in the kitchen
Bury me in the stones
Oh, bury me everywhere you go
In the shadows of the hallway
Oh, for we do no longer know
What we can no longer hold
On days like these our heads fill up with smoke
And our memories grow old
Only when you're gone
Only when you're gone
Only when you're gone
And away
Only when you're gone

Only when you're gone
Only, only when you're gone
Only when you're gone
And away
Only when you're gone

Gone away
And gone away
Oh

can you hear the rain, love?




Look into my eyes
And stay for a while
We can close our eyes, love
And let the dreams come softly

Can you hear the rain, love?
Fall on your window
Can you hear the rain, love?
Gently fall

Here comes another tear
For the silence in me
And as its darkness clears
I wake you gently singing

Can you hear the rain, love?
Fall on your window
Can you hear the rain, love?
Gently fall


Oh it seems so far away
Oh it seems so far away
Oh it seems so far away

her love is happy





It tells a strange feeling you know
You make her high you make her low
Why does it have to be like this
Sometimes I wish you could change your ways
Cuz you know the worst just far too well
You wont lack in, you have nothin to spare
Her love is happy when you go
Her love is happy on her own

La la la la la la la laaaa

It tells a strange feeling you know
You wanted all you haven't known
Open your eyes and make her stay
She's far too close to move away
Cuz you so sure to be her only one
It's not your fault whether she's hurt or she's gone
Her love is happy when you go
Her love is happy on her own

La la la la la la la laaaa

open up your door








Open up your door
I can't see your face no more
Love is so hard to find
And even harder to define
Oh, open up your door
Cause we've time to give
And I'm feeling it so much more
Open up the door
Open up your door

Open up the door
I can't hear your voice no more
I just want to make you smile
Maybe stay with you a while
Oh, open up your door
Cos we've time to give
And my feelings aren't so obscure
Open up the door
Open up your door

So open up your door
Cos we've time to give
And I'm feeling it so much more
Open up your door
Oh, open up your door
Love is so hard to find
And even harder to define
Oh, open up your door
I've never been so sure
Oh, open up your door
Open up the door

All The Things You Are

nobody should hide it...



Well I'm coming home again
On a future missing plane
And there's water on the window
A message in the rain

Just when I thought all was lost
Nothing could describe it
When I'm fighting for a cause
Nobody should hide it

Here's my excuse, Here's my excuse
And I don't know any better
Who do ya lose, who do ya lose
When you don't know any better

Oh I'm driving home again
Trying to lose the pitch again
And the radio explains
Someone else just took my place

Here's my excuse, Here's my excuse
And I don't know any better
Falling for you, falling for you
'Cause I don't know any better

You think we'll always change
Some things will never change, oh yeah

Here's my excuse, Here's my excuse
And I don't know any better
Who do ya lose, falling for you
'Cause I don't know any better

Some things will never change
Oh yeah, oh yeah

όλα πριν γίνουν





Προάστια, η τελευταία νύχτα μαζί σου
Και άλλη μια φορά να γυρνώ στο σπίτι μόνος
Ανάμεσα σε κίτρινα ταξί και διεθνείς ετικέτες
Και στο δρόμο ένα σχήμα που αλλάζει
Σαν μάτι πίσω από φακό επαφής
Η ζωή μας κάθε μέρα αλλάζει
Μικρή μου Αθήνα είσαι η πόλη που μου μοιάζει
Ένα περιοδικό με χιλιάδες λέξεις
Δεν κοστίζει τίποτα τελικά
Έξω από βόλτες δεξιά και αριστερά
Κοιτάμε σαν προβολείς αναμμένοι, ελαφρά διχασμένοι
Ξυστά κατεστραμμένοι, "έλα να φύγουμε μαζί"
Πάντα αυτό μου έλεγες
Τη μία με ήθελες την άλλη όχι
Και όλα αυτά που είμαστε
Σαν αυτοκίνητα που διανύουν την απόσταση
Πριν γίνει η σχέση, σε μια απέραντη έκταση
Ή οριστικά μόνος στη μέση του δρόμου...

Κι η νύχτα απόψε δείχνει τόσο ωραία
Μόνος ή χωρίς παρέα
Σαν μια στιγμή που δεν καταλαβαίνεις
Σαν παιχνίδι που ποτέ δεν το χορταίνεις
Εσύ κι εγώ επάνω στο κρεβάτι
Κοιτάμε το φεγγάρι με ένα πολύχρωμο μάτι
Από του κόσμου τις ατέλειωτες ταράτσες
Μέχρι των ταξί τους αστικούς χάρτες, πιάτσες
Θα συγκρούομαι πάντα
Στη μαγική σου πλάτη
Θα σε ψάχνω στα πιο αδιάφορα πάρτι
Μέχρι η αγάπη να με διαλύσει
Μέχρι η δίψα μου να σβήσει
Μέχρι η δύναμη να γίνει παράνοια
Να σπάσουν όλα τα κόκκινα φανάρια
Και τα φιλιά να γίνουν διάστημα
Σαν αυτοκίνητα που διανύουν την απόσταση
Πριν γίνει η σχέση σε μια απέραντη έκταση
Ή οριστικά μόνος στη μέση του δρόμου...

Break on Through




You know the day destroys the night,

Night divides the day
Tried to run, tried to hide,
Break on through to the other side,
Break on through to the other side,
Break on through to the other side, yeah.

We chased our pleasures here,
Dug our treasures there,
But can you still recall the time we cried?
Break on through to the other side,
Break on through to the other side.

Yeah!
C'mon, yeah.

Everybody loves my baby,
Everybody loves my baby.
She gets high
She gets high
She gets high
She gets higghhhh!

I found an island in your arms,
A country in your eyes,
Arms that chained us, eyes that lied.
Break on through to the other side,
Break on through to the other side,
Break on through, wow, oh yeah!

Made the scene week to week,
Day to day, hour to hour,
The gate is straight, deep and wide,
Break on through to the other side,
Break on through to the other side,
Break on through,
Break on through,
Break on through,
Break on through,
Break, break, break, break,
Break, break, break, break,
Break.

Take her home, keep her warm in late November


φωτογραφία: Ara Güler




Oh, she wants, she wants it badly
Oh, and I, I can't believe all she said

'Cause she's cool, yeah she's cool

She's just like lightening

Take her home, keep her warm in late November


I can't say why she's so strange now

Oh no, can't I always believe all she said
She's came down, held me close

Came down from night skies

Take her home, keep her warm in late November


She just goes to show you never know

What's in your heart, what's in your soul

She just goes to show you never know
What's in your heart, what's in your soul


She's home now, but far away she flies

But she don't know how she came

Or how she leaves

'Cause she's cool, yeah she's cool
She's just like lightening

Take her home, keep her warm in late November


She just goes to show you never know
What's in your heart, what's in your soul

...

Hands up, I love you....



There's no use to complain
Or start it off again
There's no sign of weakness in me
Do I compel you like you compel me?
And nothing stays the same
And no one said it would
I would not think of such things if I could...
If I could help myself,
If I could

So put your warm little hands where I can see them
Put those hands on my face
Tell me you love me
And no one else
Or close those little hands
Now they're fists
Now they're little fists

Punch a hole in me with those fists
If you ever wanted to punch a hole in me
And find out what's in me
There's really nothing in me

And nothing stays the same
And nothing ever happens to you that will happen to you again
Or is this the way it was?
Was it this same room, this same fight, this same scene?
With us dancing on the kitchen floor
And the wind climbing in through the open window

I used to hear distant cracks out in the city night
I could swear some one was being shot down
Now we hear that all the time...

So do you like where we're headed?
Does it make sense in your eyes?
Do you miss me, baby, when I fall asleep?
Do you reach out for my arm?
Do you find it's too far away?
Do you?

Now tell me I'm handsome
I will tell you we are really not old at all
There's no use to complain

Still you and no one else

So put your warm little hands where I can see them
Put those hands on my face
Now if you get any out of this
Then that's the thing that makes me sleep all day
And I'll explain my love for you
On another day
