Cat Power – Maybe Not

“We all do what we can
So we can do just one more thing
We can all be free
Maybe not in words
Maybe not with a look
But with your mind”

Cat Power – Good Woman

“I don’t want be a bad woman
And I can’t stand to see you be a bad man.
I will miss your heart so tender
And I will love this love forever.

And this is why I am leaving
And this is why I can’t see you no more.
This is why I am lying when I say
That I don’t love you no more.”

Cat Power – Free

“Don’t be in love with the autograph
Just be in love when ya love that song”

Cat Power – Dreams

“When I feel blue in the night
I want you to hold me tight
Whenever I want you
All I have to do is dream

I can make you mine
Taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I’m dreaming my life away”

Cat Power – I don’t Blame You

“Just because they knew your name
Doesn’t mean they know from where you came
What a sad trick you thought that you had to play
But I don’t blame you”

As coisas simples.

“Restam as coisas simples. São as mais belas. Por exemplo o haver uma pessoa que goste de outra. Isto é o mais belo de tudo o que há no mundo por mais que se procure por todo o lado. O que é que quer dizer uma menina gostar de um menino ou um menino gostar de uma menina? Quer dizer: fazerem tudo um pelo outro. O tudo é que pode ser maior ou mais pequenino. E o que quer dizer um menino gostar de uma menina que também gosta desse menino? Isso é o fim do mundo.
De vez em quando, muito de vez em quando, há o fim do mundo. O mais engraçado é que ninguém nota.”

Pedro Paixão in “Histórias Verdadeiras”

Fogueira

“Como fogueira, queimamos
Consumindo um ao outro
Vagarosamente
Doendo, ardendo, derretendo
Nos unindo, transformando nossos corpos em uma única matéria
Assim nos amamos

Como fogueira, um dia apagaremos
Cinzas nos tornaremos
Mas não sem antes espalharmos fumaça por todos os lugares
Perpetuando assim
O aroma do que um dia fomos”

Banda: Wintersleep

imagem

Banda canadiana de indie rock formada em 2001. Composta por Paul Murphy (bateria e guitarra), Loel Campbell (guitarra e voz) Tim  D’eon (guitarra e teclado), Jon Samuel (teclado, vocal e guitarra) e Mike Bigelow (baixo e teclado).

Na minha opinião, uma banda excepcional com letras fantásticas que valem a pena ser lidas.

Wintersleep – Listen 

“And even if the words don’t sound right,
I will love you till the day my heart dies,
till the day my heart dies.

And even if this ain’t the right light,
you’re prettier than anything,
(…)

There’s something in the way our lips touch,

there’s something in the way we’re stuck together
and they don’t build love like that no more.”

Wintersleep – Sore

“you’ve been awake all morning
trying to tell me something
i know you are
scared

you can tell me everything i wouldnt care
you know that i’ll always be there
right by your side no matter what
no matter what”

Wintersleep – Early in the Morning

“Early in the morning
Animals are whispering
Thought I felt a feeling
Could have been the Valium
Staring through a candle
Staring through the people
Hiding in our shadows
Swearing we will not grow old

(…)

How you gonna lie to yourself?
How you gonna lie?
How do we forget ourselves?
How do we forget our minds?

(…)
I say it loud and clear
Don’t know if I believe it
Tonight I want your body
Don’t give a fuck about your spirit

(…)

I can feel your fingers close
I can feel your falling clothes
Tell me that there’s nothing”

Wintersleep – Search Party

“Are you waiting for a miracle?
Are you waiting for a lightning bolt?
Are you waiting like a paranoid little boy?
Are you ever gonna come back home?
Do you really think the sky is falling?
How you ever gonna pick up the pieces?
Do you really think that anybody will listen?
Do you really think that anybody will notice?

(No way, no way, no way no way, no way, no way)”

Wintersleep – Faithful Guide

“I wanted to go with you
to be right by your side
so I could steer the vessel
so you could rest your eyes
I wanted to go with you
to be your faithful guide”

Wintersleep – Fog

“These broken arms won’t hold you down

These ruptured lungs won’t make a sound
These syllables won’t bring you back,
Won’t stitch the holes, no bones intact

and I can’t pretend that you were there
and I can’t pretend I held your hand
and I miss your smile
I miss your smile
I need you now
I need you now”
