“One Headlight”

So long ago, I don’t remember when
That’s when they say I lost my only friend
Well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease
As I listened through the cemetery trees

I seen the sun coming up at the funeral at dawn
The long broken arm of human law
Now it always seemed such a waste
She always had a pretty face
So I wondered how she hung around this place

Hey, come on try a little
Nothing is forever
There’s got to be something better than
In the middle
But me and Cinderella
We put it all together
We can drive it home
With one headlight

She said it’s cold
It feels like Independence Day
And I can’t break away from this parade
But there’s got to be an opening
Somewhere here in front of me
Through this maze of ugliness and greed
And I seen the sun up ahead
At the county line bridge
Saying all is good and nothingness is dead
We’d run until she’s out of breath
She ran until there’s nothing left
She hit the end, it’s just her window ledge

Hey, come on try a little
Nothing is forever
There’s got to be something better than
In the middle
But me and Cinderella
We put it all together
We can drive it home
With one headlight

This place is old
It feels just like a beat up truck
I turn the engine, but the engine doesn’t turn
What smells of cheap wine and cigarettes
This place is always such a mess
Sometimes I think I’d like to watch it burn
I’m so alone, I feel just like somebody else
Man, I ain’t changed, but I know I ain’t the same
But somewhere here in between the city walls of dying dreams
I think her death it must be killing me

Hey
Hey
Hey, come on try a little
Nothing is forever
There’s got to be something better than
In the middle
But me and Cinderella
We put it all together
We can drive it home
With one headlight

Message in a bottle

“Message In A Bottle”

Just a castaway
An island lost at sea
Another lonely day
With no one here but me
More loneliness
Than any man could bear
Rescue me before I fall into despair

I’ll send an SOS to the world
I’ll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle
(Message in a bottle)

A year has passed since I wrote my note
But I should have known this right from the start
Only hope can keep me together
Love can mend your life
But love can break your heart

I’ll send an SOS to the world
I’ll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle
(Message in a bottle
Oh, message in a bottle
Message in a bottle)

Walked out this morning
Don’t believe what I saw
A hundred billion bottles
Washed up on the shore
Seems I’m not alone at being alone
A hundred billion castaways
Looking for a home

I’ll send an SOS to the world
I’ll send an SOS to the world
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
I hope that someone gets my
Message in a bottle
(Message in a bottle
Message in a bottle
Message in a bottle)

Sending out an SOS…

“Sister gloden hair”

Well I tried to make it sunday, but I got so damn depressed
That I set my sights on monday and I got myself undressed
I ain’t ready for the altar but I do agree there’s times
When a woman sure can be a friend of mine

Well, I keep on thinkin’ ‘bout you, sister golden hair surprise
And I just can’t live without you, can’t you see it in my eyes?
I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find
But it doesn’t mean you ain’t been on my mindWill you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Well I tried to fake it, I don’t mind sayin’, I just can’t make it

Well, I keep on thinkin’ ‘bout you, sister golden hair surprise
And I just can’t live without you, can’t you see it in my eyes?
Now I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find
But it doesn’t mean you ain’t been on my mind

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Well I tried to fake it, I don’t mind sayin’, I just can’t make it

Doo wop doo wop

Sardegna, Italia — La Macchina del Tempo


Eccola qua, la mia amata-detestata Sardegna. 😊

“For What It’s Worth”

There’s something happening here
But what it is ain’t exactly clear
There’s a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it’s time we stop
Children, what’s that sound?
Everybody look – what’s going down?

There’s battle lines being drawn
Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong
Young people speaking’ their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

It’s time we stop
Hey, what’s that sound?
Everybody look – what’s going down?

What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, “hooray for our side”

It’s time we stop
Hey, what’s that sound?
Everybody look – what’s going down?

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you’re always afraid
Step out of line, the man come and take you away

We better stop
Hey, what’s that sound?
Everybody look – what’s going down?

We better stop
Hey, what’s that sound?
Everybody look – what’s going down?

We better stop
Now, what’s that sound?
Everybody look – what’s going down?

We better stop
Children, what’s that sound?
Everybody look – what’s going down?

You’re gorgeous

“You’re Gorgeous”

Remember that tank-top you bought me?
You wrote “You’re gorgeous” on it
You took me to your rented motor car
And filmed me on the bonnet

You got me to hitch my knees up
And pulled my legs apart
You took an Instamatik camera
And pulled my sleeves around my heart

Because you’re gorgeous
I’d do anything for you
Because you’re gorgeous
I know you’ll get me through

You said my clothes were sexy
You tore away my shirt
You rubbed an ice cube on my chest
Snapped me till it hurt

Because you’re gorgeous
I’d do anything for you
Because you’re gorgeous
I know you’ll get me through

You said I wasn’t cheap
You paid me twenty pounds
You promised to put me in a magazine
On every table in every lounge

Because you’re gorgeous
I’d do anything for you
Because you’re gorgeous
I know you’ll get me through

Because you’re gorgeous
I’d do anything for you
Because you’re gorgeous
I know you’ll get me, know you’ll get me through
Know you’ll get me through
Know you’ll get me through
Know you’ll get me through
Know you’ll get me through
Know you’ll get me through
Know you’ll get me through
I know you’ll get me, know you’ll get me through
I know you’ll get me, know you’ll get me through
Because you’re gorgeous
I’d do anything for you
Because you’re gorgeous
I know you’ll get me through
I know you’ll get me through

A cause des garçons

“A cause des garçons”

A cause des garçons

Tu déconnes, on va pas se faire
Encore un plan gros ça-comme
De quel plan tu causes, tu oses

C’est toi qu’a commencé
J’abandonne, t’es vraiment plus bonne
A pas grand chose, tu déconnes
Ben tu vois lui me trouve super bonne

A cause des garçons
On met des bas nylon
On se crêpe le chignon

A cause des garcons
Et du, “Qu’en dira-t-on”
On pleure sur tous les tons

A cause des garçons
On s’allume pour de bon
A cause des garçons

Carabine, c’est le mot qui m’vient
Quand je pense à mes copines
Et moi j’ai ma dose, sans dec
De tes ‘Dos’ de Ginette

J’hallucine, faut qu’on te vaccine
Tout ça pour un mec de frime
Tu déprimes, j’te le laisse si c’est ton style

C’est la faute des ma-, des magazines
Des Marie, des Claire, des Marie-Claire
Les Fig les mag, beaucoup trop clairs
Les femmes d’aujourd’hui et d’hier

C’est la faute des ma-, des magazines
Des Marie, des France, des Marie-France
Les femmes pratiques qui en ont pas marre
Des Cosmo, Vogue et tout l’bazar

A cause des garçons
On se presse le citron
On fond comme des glaçons

A cause des garcons
On glisse comme des savons
A cause des garçons
On se brouille pour de bon
A cause des garçons
