“Mother Mary”

Do you want to elope tonight
Getting lost in the shadows
All dressed up like a switchblade knife
Let’s hang in love from the gallows

Or we can take a walk around the lake
There’s a garden in the park there
Under the stars next to the fireside

anywhere is better than here

Oh Mother Mary, take my hand
I’ll be a saint, I’ll be your man
I’ll do most anything, ‘cause I don’t care …
Oh Mother Mary, take my hand.

Take a ride on the midnight train
We’ll fall asleep at the station
Too much wine, driving me insane
And then we’ll miss our destination

Oh well, too bad, who cares, it’s all right.
As long as we will stick together
In hell we’ll run in rows of sunshine
We’ll watch it rise and shine forever

Oh Mother Mary, take my hand
I’ll be a saint, I’ll be your man
I’ll do most anything, ‘cause I don’t care …
Oh Mother Mary, take my hand.

“Stand”

Stand in the place where you live
Now face north
Think about direction
Wonder why you haven’t before

Now stand in the place where you work
Now face west
Think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven’t before

If you are confused, check with the sun
Carry a compass to help you along
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around

So stand in the place where you live
Now face north
Think about direction
Wonder why you haven’t befor
e

Now stand in the place where you work
Now face west
Think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven’t before

Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around
If wishes were trees, the trees would be falling
Listen to reason, season is calling

Stand in the place where you live
Now face north
Think about direction
Wonder why you haven’t before

Now stand in the place where you work
Now face west
Think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven’t before

If wishes were trees, the trees would be falling
Listen to reason, reason is calling
Your feet are going to be on the ground
Your head is there to move you around

So stand (Stand!)
Now face north
Think about direction
Wonder why you haven’t before

Now stand (Stand!)
Now face west
Think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven’t

Stand in the place where you live
Now face north
Think about direction
Wonder why you haven’t before

Now stand in the place where you work
Now face west
Think about the place where you live
Wonder why you haven’t before

Stand in the place where you are
Now face north
Stand in the place where you are
Now face west
Your feet are going to be on the ground
(Stand in the place where you are)
Your head is there to move you around, so stand

Lullaby

“Lullaby”

O for a voice like thunder, and a tongue

To drown the throat of war! – When the senses

Are shaken, and the soul is driven to madness

Who can stand? When the souls of the oppressed

Fight in the troubled air that rages, who can stand?

When the whirlwind of fury comes from the

Throne of God, when the frowns of his countenance

Drive the nations together, who can stand?

When Sin claps his broad wings over the battle,

And sails rejoicing in the flood of Death;

When souls are torn to everlasting fire,

And fiends of Hell rejoice upon the stain.

O who can stand? O who hath caused this?

O who can answer at the throne of God?

The Kings and Nobles of the Land have done it!

Hear it not, Heaven, thy Ministers have done it!

(Words by William Blake)


Traduzione (trovata qui):

Oh per una voce simile al tuono, e una lingua

Che anneghi la gerra! Quando i sensi

Vengono scossi, e l’anima condotta alla follia

Chi può resistere? Quando le anime degli oppressi

Lottano contro l’aria sconvolta da turbinii, chi può resistere?

Quando il vortice di furore si manifesterà

Dal trono di Dio, quando le ciglia si aggrottano sulla sue fronte

Condurranno assieme le nazioni, chi può resistere?

Quando il Peccato spiega le sue ampie ali sulla battaglia

E le vele gioiscono nel diluvio di Morte

Quando le anime sono straziate dal fuoco eterno

E i demoni dell’inferno gioiscono di fronte all’onta

Oh chi può resistere? Chi lo ha provocato?

Oh chi può risponderne di fronte al trono di Dio?

I Re e i Nobili della Terra lo hanno fatto!

Non ascoltalo, Cielo, i tuoi Ministri lo hanno fatto!

(Testo di William Blake)

Don’t dream it’s over

“Don’t Dream It’s Over”

There is freedom within
There is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There’s a battle ahead
Many battles are lost
But you’ll never see the end of the road
While you’re traveling with me

Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m towing my car
There’s a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there’s no proof
In the paper today
Tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the T.V. page

Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won’t win

Now I’m walking again
To the beat of a drum
And I’m counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead
Barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and release

Hey now, hey now
Don’t dream it’s over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
You know they won’t win

Don’t let them win
Hey now, hey now

Hey now, hey now

Hey now, hey now
Don’t let them win

They come, they come
Don’t let them win

Hey now, hey now (yeah)

Hey now, hey now

“Love” by Alexander Milov

❤

Quando l’arte contemporanea incontra la voglia di comunicare un concetto e di suscitare delle emozioni nascono veri e propri capolavori.

L’opera “Love” di Alexander Milov è uno di quelli. Presentata all’edizione del 2015 del festival “Burning Man“, essa si è fatta notare, oltre che per le dimensioni, anche per ciò che essa è capace di evocare. Infatti, all’interno delle due sagome metalliche antropomorfe – che rappresentano due adulti – sono racchiuse le statue di due bambini che sembrano toccarsi le mani. La caratteristica particolare di questa scultura emerge solo col calare della notte: infatti le statue dei due bambini, a poco a poco, si illuminano oscurando quella metalliche dei due adulti che durante il giorno si voltano la schiena, come chiusi in se stessi.

E’ la metafora del bambino che ognuno conserva ancora dentro di sè, che lo voglia o no, e – come ha spiegato lo stesso Milov: “Come si sta facendo buio (che sia notte) i bambini cominciano a brillare. Questo splendore è un simbolo della purezza e della sincerità che unisce le persone quando arriva il momento buio.”

Arthur’s theme

“Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)”
(from “Arthur” soundtrack)

Once in your life you’ll find her
Someone who turns your heart around
And next thing you know
You’re closin’ down the town

Wake up and it’s still with you
Even though you left her way across town
You’re wonderin’ to yourself
Hey what’ve I found

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy but it’s true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do (the best that you can do)
The best that you can do is fall in love

Arthur he does what he pleases
All of his life his master’s toys
And deep in his heart
He’s just, he’s just a boy
Livin’ his life one day at a time
He’s showing himself a really good time
He’s laughin’ about the way
They want him to be

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy but it’s true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do (the best that you can do)
The best that you can do is fall in love

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy but it’s true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do (the best that you can do)
The best that you can do is fall in love

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy but it’s true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do (the best that you can do)
The best that you can do is fall in love

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it’s crazy but it’s true…

Wind of change

“Wind Of Change”

I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change
An August summer night
Soldiers passing by
Listening to the wind of change

The world is closing in
Did you ever think
That we could be so close, like brothers
The future’s in the air
I can feel it everywhere
Blowing with the wind of change

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
in the wind of change

Walking down the street
Distant memories
Are buried in the past forever
I follow the Moskva
Down to Gorky Park
Listening to the wind of change

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams
With you and me
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
in the wind of change

The wind of change
Blows straight into the face of time
Like a stormwind that will ring the freedom bell
For peace of mind
Let your balalaika sing
What my guitar wants to say

Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow share their dreams
With you and me
Take me to the magic of the moment
On a glory night
Where the children of tomorrow dream away
in the wind of change

Najwa Zebian — Astro Orientamenti

Oggi voglio condividere questo post di Astro Orientamenti perché la poesia che vi ho letto mi ha colpita nel profondo. …Ma in questo blog mi capita sempre di trovare citazioni profonde che, per un verso o per l’altro, sento ‘mie’. Se non l’avete ancora visitato, vi consiglio di farci un giro: perché è davvero molto interessante e vi si respira un’atmosfera di serenità e di pace.

Detto questo, ringrazio Astro Orientamenti per avermi permesso di condividere il suo post e vi lascio alla lettura di questa meravigliosa poesia. 😊

…

Se dopo aver lasciato andare

qualcuno o qualcosa,

il tuo cuore ti fa un po’ male,

è tutto okay.

Significa solo che i tuoi sentimenti

erano genuini.

A nessuno piace concludere.

Ed a nessuno piace il dolore.

Ma a volte, dobbiamo portare

le cose che una volta

erano buone per noi, ad una fine,

perché sono diventate tossiche

per il nostro benessere.

Non tutti i nuovi inizi

sono destinati a durare per sempre.

E non tutte le persone

che camminano nella tua vita,

sono destinate a rimanere

…

If you believe

“If you believe”

I know it’s not a game to play
your eyes they show no fear
I bum inside and can not wait to be

The man that feels your body close
is here to set you free
to hold you near and satisfy your needs

You shiver as I touch your neck
slowly close your eyes
I cant resist you even if I try

We both surrender to the touch
as we lay there side by side
and everything around us disappears

lf you believe, if you believe
lf you believe then let it out

As you run your fingers through my hair
Your lips come close to mine
The tension becomes more than I can bare

Then you wrap your arms around me
and I feel your every move
This feeling could now lead us anywhere

Now we leave the world behind us
this moment we both share
Just you and me that’s how it’s meant to
be

I never wanted you so much
I feel your every breath
As you gently whisper in my ea
r

lf you believe in love tonight
I’m gonna show you one more time
lf you believe then let it out
No need to worry there’s no doubt
lf you believe, if you believe
If you believe then let it out

lf you believe in love tonight
lf you believe in love tonight
I’m gonna show you one more time

Show you one more time

If you believe then let it out
No need to worry there’s no doubt
lf you believe, if you believe
Don’t worry
you gotta let it out babe
you gotta let it out babe

– Sasha –
