Lyrics: First aid kit - my silver lining

I don't know if I'm scared of dying but I'm scared of living too fast, too slow


I  don't want to wait anymore I'm tired of looking for answers
Take me some place where there's music and there's laughter
I don't know if I'm scared of dying but I'm scared of living too fast, too slow
Regret, remorse, hold on, oh no I've got to go
There’s no starting over, no new beginnings, time races on
And you've just gotta keep on keeping on
Gotta keep on going, looking straight out on the road
Can't worry 'bout what's behind you or what's coming for you further up the road
I try not to hold on to what is gone, I try to do right what is wrong
I try to keep on keeping on
Yeah I just keep on keeping on

I hear a voice calling
Calling out for me
These shackles I've made in an attempt to be free
Be it for reason, be it for love
I won't take the easy road

I've woken up in a hotel room, my worries as big as the moon
Having no idea who or what or where I am
Something good comes with the bad
A song's never just sad
There's hope, there's a silver lining
Show me my silver lining
Show me my silver lining

I hear a voice calling
Calling out for me
These shackles I've made in an attempt to be free
Be it for reason, be it for love
I won't take the easy road

I won't take the easy road
The easy road, the easy road

Show me my silver lining, I try to keep on keeping on
Show me my silver lining, I try to keep on keeping on
Show me my silver lining, I try to keep on keeping on
Show me my silver lining, I try to keep on keeping on

The Decemberists - Philomena (lyrics & clip)


Oh, Philomena

You in a tawdry gown

Lean to your window

Let slip a ribbon down

A cure to your boredom

If only you’d let me go 

Down, down down

Long summer days can lead to lazy vices

Boys all in idle, left to their own devices

Open up your linen lap

And let me go down, down down

 

All that I wanted in the world was just to live to see a naked girl

But I found I quickly bored, I wanted more, I wanted more

 

So I’ll be your candle and I’ll be your statuette

I’ll be your lashing loop of leatherette

Aw Philomena, if only you’d let me go

Down, down down

 

All that I wanted in the world was just to live to see a naked girl

But I found I quickly bored, I wanted more, oh, so much more

 

So I’ll be your candle and I’ll be your statuette

I’ll be your lashing loop of leatherette

Aw Philomena, if only you’d let me go

Down, down down

Go down, down down

Go down, go down

Intergalactic lovers - No regrets (lyrics and clip)


Put your money where your goddamn mouth is
Put your hands where your lust wants it
You've been trying hard to claim her


Believe me, you'll never get it
I, I never say that I would stay forever
I, I'm bad in love and keeping this together
She's so easy to love but to hard
To hard to tie down
That's when you say you'ld save her

She ran away now
Try and see it her way
Try and see the other way
Don't you know you'll lose
That's what I say

I, I never say that I would stay forever
I, I'm bad in love and keeping this together
No-o-o, no regrets that's what I sell myself
And no-o-o, no regrets that's how I wanna get older

N-O to the grave
I say N-O to the grave
N-O to the crate
I say N-O to the crate
I say NO-O-O-O
And I say NO-O-O

I, I never say that I would stay forever
I, I'm bad in love and keeping it together
No-o-o, no regrets that's what I tell myself
And no-o-o, no regrets that's what I sell myself
No-o-o, no regrets that's what I tell myself
And no-o-o, no regrets that's how I wanna get older

Belle and Sebastian - The Party Line (lyrics and clip)


 

How did I get here

(I heard a rumour)

From your girlfriend's sister 

(That you knew me)

And you end up dancing

(Closer to me)

 

I know that I broke the rule already

She asked me if I'm single

Going steady

I just drop my head and took a step off into the dark

 

Standing on the black and white tiles

Don't dance on the lights cause the bears eat the pretty ones

We are like the islands divided

 

Jump to the beat of a party line

Jump to the beat of a party line

There is no body here but your body dear

Jump to the beat of a party line

 

Stay

You stay

 

I am on this morning quite distracted

The tug of war begins on our emotion

I am leaving many people feeling 

Worse than before

 

People like to drive the cars and smoke up

People like to sit inside and toke up

People like to shoot at things with borrowed guns

And knives

 

I am happy to look and run

Where were you when I was king in this part of town

Now the days of glory are gone

 

Jump to the beat of a party line

Jump to the beat of a party line

There is no body here but your body dear

Jump to the beat of a party line

 

Jump to the beat of a party line

Jump to the beat of a party line

There is no body here but your body dear

Nobody here but your body dear

 

Jump to the beat of a party line

Jump to the beat of a party line

There is no body here but your body dear

Jump to the beat of a party line

 

Jump to the beat of a party line

Jump to the beat of a party line

There is no body here but your body dear

No body here but your body dear

The runaways - You Drive Me Wild

runaways, joan jett

The Runaways zijn een "all-female" punk-rock band die midden jaren zeventig het levenslicht zag. Ondanks de vele negatieve commentaren - want "meisjes horen geen electrische gitaren te spelen" - volharden 'the queens of noise' en weten ze met behulp van de juiste attitude door te breken. Maar lang duurt het sprookje niet. Na een aantal ruzies over de te volgen weg, split de band enkele jaren later.

Wist je?

1/ Bekendste bandlid was Joan Jett die begin jaren '80 een hit scoorde met 'I love rock 'n' roll', een cover. Het origineel nummer van The Arrows dateert uit 1975.

2/ De band werd vooral in Japan enorm populair.

3/ Het verhaal van the Runaways werd in 2010 verfilmd.

Ons favoriete nummer: niet de hits 'Cherry Bomb' of 'Queens of Noise', maar wel het wondermooie 'you drive me wild'. Met lyrics die perfect aansluiten bij... valentijn.


"You Drive Me Wild"

You know when you're close you really turn me on

Thats why I want you so bad when your gone, yeah

Come on, come on and take me home

Please stay with me and don't you leave me alone

 

You drive me wild

Yeah yeah

You know you do

Uh huh

You drive me wild

You know I need you

 

You're on my mind always my one desire

Lets get together and build us a fire

Make me tremble make me shake

Pleasin' each other rockin' till daybreak 

 

You drive me wild

Yeah yeah

You know you do

Uh huh

You drive me wild

You know I need you

 

Don't hold off do it, I need your lovin'

I'm getting so hot I'm cooking like an oven

My head is all filled with crazy thoughts

Love like this just can't be bought 

 

You drive me wild

Yeah yeah

You know you do

Uh huh

You drive me wild

You know I need you

Intergalactic lovers - Islands ( lyrics & clip )


Take a minute to face yourself

Deep breath that always aids

We've all been down here before

Gotta walk through hell to get up 

You'll never be king if you haven't crawled

And you'll never get high if you're afraid to fall

 

But I'll burn my bridges with broken match sticks

So convinced that I didn't deserve what's on the other side 

Old tricks played by my own mind

And I'll never be queen if I can't crawl

And I'll never get high if I'm afraid to fall

 

Never gonna get it

Never ...

 

We are islands (we are we are we are)

Drifting lost at sea

Waiting for our ships to come in yeah

We are praying for the love that has been sinking

We are waiting for the love to come in ships to come in

 

I took a left to try to right my wrongs

Still this darkness is holding up

We've all been down here before

It's an endless loop, it goes around and around

We'll never be kings if we can't crawl

And we'll never get high if we're afraid to fall

 

Never gonna get it

Never ...

 

We are islands (we are we are we are)

Drifting lost at sea

Waiting for our ships to come in yeah

We are We are islands (we are we are we are)

Drifting lost at sea

Waiting for our ships to come in yeah

We are praying for the love that has been sinking

We are waiting for the love to come in ships to come in

Girls in hawaii - misses (lyrics & clip )


There is always the sound, 

Are you hearing it too 

How it's weird living inside the town. 

Empty days without you. 

 

There is always a fall 

But it happened too soon. 

How can I see the living all around, 

When I struggle with you 

 

There is always a clock 

Gods beyond, by the curve 

What's the point to give in 

To desperation? to desperation... 

 

Youth in the sun drowned in broken seas 

Cruising the summer sands 

Despite all the bruises coming from the side 

You'll always be young and amused (and amused) 

 

I miss you...

Urbanus & Isolde Lasoen - Zetpilcar ( lyrics en clip )

In m'n zilveren zetpilcar

Rijd ik down the road

Altijd maar op zoek naar haar

Warme moederschoot

Met m'n zilveren zetpilcar

Rijd ik weer en heen

Ik heb allemaal de radio's aan

En toch ben ik alleen

 

In je zilveren zetpilcar 

Rijd je down the road

Ik sta opgetut en klaar

Wachtend langs de sloot

In je zilveren zetpilcar

Kom je dichterbij

Trap die Mustang op zijn staart

Laat je duivels vrij

 

Altijd tevreden en altijd content

Kom ik naar je toe gereden

Om 't even waar je bent

Altijd tevreden en altijd content

Van al m'n narigheden ben jij mijn mooiste accident

Van in m'n zilveren zetpilcar zie ik je daar staan

Met knipperlichtjes in je haar

En fuck me laarsjes aan

 

Stop je zilveren zetpilcar

Mijn hart slaat op hol

Dacht je dat ik die laarsjes maar aan had voor de lol

 

Altijd tevreden en altijd content

Kom ik naar je toe gereden

Om 't even waar je bent

Altijd tevreden en altijd content

Van al m'n narigheden ben jij mijn mooiste accident

 

Viens dans mon suppositoire

M'n verlangen brand

We scheuren langs in de boulevard

Je knie onder mijn hand

 

Rij met je zilveren zetpilcar

Naar jouw grote boot

Zet jij de champagne klaar

Dan kleed ik me bloot

 

Altijd tevreden en altijd content

Kom ik naar je toe gereden

Om 't even waar je bent

Altijd tevreden en altijd content

Van al m'n narigheden ben jij mijn mooiste accident

Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros - Home (clip en lyrics)


Alabama, Arkansas 

I do love my Ma & Pa 

not the way that I do love you.

 

Well, holy moley me-oh-my 

you're the apple of my eye

Girl, I've never loved one like you 

 

Man, oh,man, you're my best friend 

I'll scream it to the nothingness

There aint nothin that I need.

 

Well, hot n' heavy, pumpkin pie, chocolate cake and jezus Christ. Aint nothin please me more than you. 

 

Ah Home 

let me come home 

Home is whenever I'm with you

Ah Home 

Let me come home

Home is whenever I'm with you 

 

La,la,la,la take me home 

Baby I'm comin home

 

I'll follow you into the park

trough the jungle, trough the dark

girl I never loved one like you 

 

moats and boats and waterfalls

alley ways and pay phone calls

I've been everywhere with you

thats true

 

laugh until we think we'll die

barefoot on a summer night 

never could be sweeter than with you 

 

And in the streets we're runnin free

like it's only you and me 

Jeeze, you're somthin to see 

 

Ah Home 

Let me come home 

Home is whenever I'm with you 

Ah Home 

Let me come home 

Home is whenever I'm with you

 

la,la,la,la take me home

baby, I'm comin home

 

Jade 

Alexander

Do you remember that day you fall out of my window?

I sure do you, you came jumpin out after me 

well you fall on the concrete and nearly broke your ass and you were bleeding all over the place and I rushed you out to the hospital 

do you remember that?

yes I do 

 

well there's something I never told you about that night

what didn't you tell me?

well you were sitting in the back seat smoking a sigarrette 

you trought was gonna be your last

I was fallin deep deeply in love with you 

and I never told you till just now

O I love you 

 

Ah Home 

let me come home 

Home is whenever I'm with you 

Ah Home 

Let me come home 

Home is whenever I'm with you 

 

Alabama, Arkansas

I do love my ma amd pa

boats and Moats and water falls

alley ways and pay phone calls

 

Home Oh home 

Home is when I'm alone with you 

Home Oh home

Home is when I'm alone with you

Beady Eye - shine a light ( lyrics & clip )


 

Slow, let it vine through the past, space and time

There you'll see what's inside, you're the Sun, you're the light 

See the man of the cloth, got it wrong from the off

Out of line, out of reach, me and you born to see

 

Shine a light (shine a la-la, shine a light)

Shine a light (shine a la-la, shine a light)

 

Rising fast on my feet, let me breathe, let me speak

I'm at home, I'm alive, both in veins above the size

Crystalline in the dark, all you see is the spark

All you feel, you don't speak, me and you born to see

 

Shine a light (shine a la-la, shine a light)

Shine a light (shine a la-la, shine a light)

 

And sure enough, weeping your love

I'm seeing the look in your eyes

 

Shine a light (shine a la-la, shine a light)

(Shine a la-la, shine a light)

Come on, shine a light (shine a la-la, shine a light)

(Shine a la-la, shine a light)

 

Come on shine a light, come on shine a light 

Come on shine a light, come on shine a light

Universalise, la-alise, shine a light, la-alise

Universalise, la-alise, oh-alise

Universalise, la-alise, ah-alise, univers-alise
