The Black Keys - Too afraid to love you



My gears, they grind more each day
And I feel like they're gonna grind away
And the city blocks, they drive my wild
The never-ending mile after mile
I just don't know what to do
I'm too afraid to love you

It's heaven on earth, it's in her embrace
A gentle touch and a smiling face
I'm just one wishing that I was a pair
With someone oh somewhere
I just don't know what to do
I'm too afraid to love you

All those sleepless nights
And all those wasted days
I wish loneliness would leave me
But I think it's here to stay
What more can I do?
Cause I'm wringing myself dry
And I can't afford to lose one more tear drop from my eye

Too afraid
I'm too afraid
Just don't know what to do
With myself
Thinking all about you
Don't know what to do
Don't know what to do
Driving me out of my mind

I surely would



I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail.
Yes I would,
If I could,
I surely would.

Away, I'd rather sail away
Like a swan that's here and gone
A man gets tied up to the ground
He gives the world
Its saddest sound,
Its saddest sound.

I'd rather be a hammer than a nail.
Yes I would,
If I only could,
I surely would.

Away, I'd rather sail away
Like a swan that's here and gone
A man gets tied up to the ground
He gives the world
Its saddest sound,
Its saddest sound.

I'd rather be a forest than a street.
Yes I would.
If I could,
I surely would.

Away, I'd rather sail away
Like a swan that's here and gone
A man gets tied up to the ground
He gives the world
Its saddest sound,
Its saddest sound.

I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet,
Yes I would.
If I only could,
I surely would.

We can sail the seven seas...


So if you please I'll build you a
house underneath the
plantain trees.

And if you please I'll build you
a boat. We can sail the seven
seas.

And if you please I'll take you
out of the atmosphere in a
spaceship.

And if you please I'll take you
out of the atmosphere that I
built. For you.

tu aroma dulce melodía




Buenos Aires.. Buenos Aires..

Cuando estas,
El tiempo queda.
Y las luces brillan mas allá.
El sabor de mil besos,
Que aun me hacen reír y hablar
Nada mas nada queda,
Solamente tu risa en el Bar
Postales, que se suceden sin cesar
Tu aroma, Dulce melodía,
Aun tiene un lugar,
Del recuerdo que es donde todo,
Sucede, otra vez,
Nada mas nada queda.
Solamente tu risa en el Bar
Postales, que se suceden sin cesar

Buenos Aires.. Buenos Aires..

Nada mas nada queda.
Solamente tu risa en el Bar
Postales, que se suceden sin cesar

Nada mas nada queda.
Solamente tu risa en el Bar
Postales, que se suceden sin cesar

Buenos Aires.. Buenos Aires..


~


Buenos Aires.. Buenos Aires..

When you’re here,
Time stops.
And the lights shine further out.
The taste of a thousand kisses,
That even now make me laugh and talk,
Nothing else, nothing remains,
Only your laugh in the Bar,
Post cards, that follow on without stopping
Your aroma, sweet melody,
Even still has a place,
In the memory which is where it all,
Happens, once again,
Nothing else, nothing remains.

Buenos Aires.. Buenos Aires..

Nothing else, nothing remains,
Only your laugh in the Bar,
Post cards, that follow on without stopping

Nothing else, nothing remains,
Only your laugh in the Bar,
Post cards, that follow on without stopping

Buenos Aires.. Buenos Aires..

love lost



Our love was lost
But now we've found it
Our love was lost, was lost
And hope was gone

Our love was lost
But now we've found it
And if you flash your heart, your heart
I won't deny it
I promise

I promise

Your walls are up
Too cold to touch it
Your walls are up, are up
Too high to climb

I know it's hard
But I can still hear it beating
So if you flash your heart
I won't mistreat it
I promise

I promise

Our love was lost
In the rubble are all the things
That you've, you've been dreaming of
Keep me in mind
When you're ready
I am here
To take you every time

Oh, our love was lost
Lost, lost, lost, lost..
Our love was lost
But now its found

σκέψου μεσάνυχτα και κάτι στη Σταδίου να πετώ



Βγαίνουμε απ' το σινεμά
βρέχει και φυσάει
ουρανό ή Άδη θα με πάει
τώρα που λέω να της το πω.

Αμάξια που γυαλίζουνε
παρέες που σκορπίζουν
όλα γίνονται καπνός
καθώς τα μάτια της ανοίγουν
βγάζουν φως και μου γελάει.

Το σκοτάδι έγινε μέρα
πες μου πώς το'κανες αυτό
και τα νέον στις βιτρίνες
γράφουν όλα σ' αγαπώ.

Έλα κράτα με απ' τη μέση
γιατί θ' απογειωθώ
σκέψου μεσάνυχτα και κάτι
στη Σταδίου να πετώ.

Μπαίνουμε αγκαλιά στο μπαρ
κοίτα κι εδώ γιορτάζουν
Ωραία ήταν και η σταρ
μα όλοι εσένανε κοιτάζουν.

Τα' χω χαμένα ξαφνικά
λες κι αθωώθηκα από δίκη
άρχισε πρώτη να μιλάς
τα θέλω όλα μονομιάς
κι η Αθήνα μας ανήκει.

It won't be long




Travelling north, travelling north to find you
Train wheels beating, the wind in my eyes
Don't even know what I'll say when find you
Call out your name love, dont be surprised

It's so many miles and so long since I've met you
Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you
But suddenly now I know where I belong
It's many hundred miles and it won't be long

It won't be long
It won't be long
It won't be long

Nothing at all in my head to say to you
Only the beat of the train I'm on
Nothing I've learnt all my life on the way to you
Only our love that's over and gone

It's so many miles and so long since I've met you
Don't even know what I'll find when I get to you
But suddenly now I know where I belong
It's many hundred miles and it won't be long

It won't be long
It won't be long
It won't be long

...στους δρόμους που ονειρεύομαι, χωρίς επιστροφή.




Μικρή η φωνή κι ανήμπορη
μια λέξη ν' ακουστεί
σ' αυτή την άσκοπη βουή
που όλα τα σκεπάζει.
Μα τώρα νιώθω μια αιτία
κι ένα λόγο που θα κάνω
ολόχρυσες οι σάλπιγγες,
τραγούδι να σημάνουν.

Μέσα απ' αυτό το φονικό
μονάχα ο έρωτας θα ζήσει
γι' αυτό στο σώμα σου ας χαθώ
στους δρόμους που ονειρεύομαι
χωρίς επιστροφή.

Κι ενώ η μαμή της ιστορίας με ξεχνάει
τις ίδιες μήτρες ξεγεννάει
με ίδιους πάντα τρόπους.
Το τζάμι σπάζω μιας βιτρίνας
και παίρνω όλα τα φιλιά σου
που εκεί τα φυλακίσανε,
μα τώρα μου ανήκουν.
