A howling wind is whistling in the night
My dog is growling in the dark
Something’s pulling me outside
To ride around in circles
I know that you have got the time
Coz anything I want, you do
You’ll take a ride through the strangers
Who don’t understand how to feel
In the deathcar, we’re alive
In the deathcar, we’re alive

I’ll let some air come in the window
Kind of wakes me up a little
I don’t turn on the radio
Coz they play shit, like….You know
When your hand was down on my dick
It felt quite amazing
And now that, that is all over
All we’ve got is the silence
In the deathcar, we’re alive
In the deathcar, we’re alive
So come on mandolins, play

When I touched you
I felt that you still had your baby fat
And a little taste of baby’s breath
Makes me forget about death
At your age you’re still joking
It ain’t time yet for the choking
So now we can see the movie and see each other truly
In the deathcar, we’re alive
In the deathcar, we’re alive
I want to hear some mandolins



Nema vise sunca
Nema vise meseca
Nema tebe, nema mene
Niceg vise, nema joj.
Pokriva nas ratna tama
Pokriva nas tama joj.
A ja se pitam moja draga
Sta ce biti sa nama?
Mesecina, mesecina,
joj, joj, joj, joj
Sunce sija ponoc bije,
joj, joj, joj, joj
Sa nebesa, zaproklija
Niko ne zna, niko ne zna
Niko ne zna, niko ne zna
Niko ne zna sta to sija



A worried man with a worried mind
No one in front of me and nothing behind
There’s a woman on my lap and she’s drinking champagne
Got white skin, got assassin’s eyes
I’m looking up into the sapphire tinted skies
I’m well dressed, waiting on the last train

Standing on the gallows with my head in a noose
Any minute now I’m expecting all hell to break loose

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

This place ain’t doing me any good
I’m in the wrong town, I should be in Hollywood
Just for a second there I thought I saw something move
Gonna take dancing lessons do the jitterbug rag
Ain’t no shortcuts, gonna dress in drag
Only a fool in here would think he’s got anything to prove

Lot of water under the bridge, Lot of other stuff too
Don’t get up gentlemen, I’m only passing through

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed

I’ve been walking forty miles of bad road
If the bible is right, the world will explode
I’ve been trying to get as far away from myself as I can
Some things are too hot to touch
The human mind can only stand so much
You can’t win with a losing hand

Feel like falling in love with the first woman I meet
Putting her in a wheel barrow and wheeling her down the street

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed
I hurt easy, I just don’t show it
You can hurt someone and not even know it
The next sixty seconds could be like an eternity
Gonna get low down, gonna fly high
All the truth in the world adds up to one big lie
I’m in love with a woman who don’t even appeal to me

Mr. Jinx and Miss Lucy, they jumped in the lake
I’m not that eager to make a mistake

People are crazy and times are strange
I’m locked in tight, I’m out of range
I used to care, but things have changed



Podul de piatra s-a daramat
A venit apa si l-a luat
Vom face altul
Pe mal in jos
Altul mai trainic si mai frumos.

Cate mii de oameni au calcat pe el
Pana sa se nasca puiul de carcel
Care sa primeasca, sa primeasca-n dar
Forta lui cea oarba, fara de hotar.

S-a pus bulboana-n miezul raului
Si-a-nceput sa urle in valtoarea lui
Apele repezi au coborat din munti
Far’ s-asculte sfatul celor azi carunti

Fara speranta totul e pierdut
Podul de piarta trebui’ refacut
Vom face altul, pe mal in jos,
Altul mai trainic si mai frumos.

Podul de piatra s-a daramat
A venit apa si l-a luat
Vom face altul
Pe mal in jos
Altul mai trainic si mai frumos.



You can tell me your troubles
I’ll listen for free
My regulars trust me, it seems
You can come and see Uncle
to get through the week
leave your pledges with me to redeem
Some folk sell their bodies
for ten bob a go
Politicians go pawning their souls
Which doesn’t make me
look too bad, don’t you know
me, with my heart full of holes
All my yesterdays broken
a watch with no face
all battered and old
Bits of the movement
all over the place
and a heart full of holes
A heart full of holes
A heart full of holes

Brass knuckles and banjos
are out on the town
at the knees-up
in Teddy Boys’ Row
The gold block and tackle
tells the time upside down
Rock n’ roll – well, I don’t know
Dead people’s wedding gifts
walk out the door
A clarinet squeals to be free
Accordions hop
from the shelves to the floor –
start playing their polkas to me

There’s a ringing of bells
a dunderhead’s curse
Fingers are pointing at you
And you take work in hell
and be glad it’s not worse
and you get to the back of the queue
Handcuffs and hunting knives
clang on the bars
Air pistols shoot out the lights
I’ve a whole Wailing Wall
of electric guitars
could shatter the windows
down Brick Lane tonight

If one of us dies, love
I think I’ll retire
see my boys and my beautiful girls
A Garden of Eden
no gates or barbed wire
who knows, maybe gates made of pearls
Well, if we go to heaven
and some say we don’t
but if there’s a reckoning day
please God, I’ll see you
and maybe I won’t
I’ve a bag packed to go either way

Redeeming your pledge, dear
I’ll keep it for you
It’s not going to go anywhere
But your soul, your soul
that is not what I do
There’s not a lot I can do there
I remember the officer’s watch
in my hand:
‘Repair it or die’ I was told
It’s a wonder to me –
I still don’t understand
why I ever survived to be old
with a heart full of holes
A heart full of holes
A heart full of holes


 

This didn’t used to be me, old boy
This isn’t what I’d want
pulling old night fighters
in a restaurant
There’s smoke and flames behind me
where the self-respect all went
and I’m behind, behind
with the rent

I’ve been stitched up like a kipper, old son
but I won’t be again
Hell hath no fury
Oh, I’m like a lot of men
Now I’m stalking this old Doris
with lascivious intent
and I’m behind, behind
with the rent

Just a little duck and dive
and a bit of wheel and deal
She’ll remind me I’m alive
She’ll remind me I still feel
Just a little shelling out
for a bit of you-know-what
I know this is all about
something that I never got

Well this crumpet’s past it’s sell-by-date
but they all would qualify
They’re going to be lonely
and be happy to comply
She knows that I’m a chancer
coming on like a gent
but I’m behind, behind
with the rent
Yes, I’m behind, behind
with the rent


 

True love will never fade
True love will never fade
True love will never fade
True love will never fade
True love will never fade

I wonder if there’s no forever
No walking hand in hand
Down a yellow brick road
To never never land
These days I get to where I’m going
Make it there eventually
Follow the trail of breadcrumbs
To where I’m meant to be
To where I’m meant to be

I don’t know what brought you to me
That was up to you
There’s so many come to see me
Who want their own tattoo
I fixed a needle in a holder
Laid my hand upon your spine
And there upon your shoulder
I drew the picture as your sign
When I think about us
I see the picture that we made
The picture to remind us

True love will never fade
True love will never fade
True love will never fade
True love will never fade

I worked the rowdies and daytrippers
Now and then I think of you
Any which way we’re all shufflin’
Forward in the queue
They like to move my operation
They like to get me off the pier
And I dream I’m on a steamer
Pullin’ out of here

When I think about us
I see a picture that we made
The picture to remind us

True love will never fade
True love will never fade
True love will never fade
True love will never fade
True love will never fade
True love will never fade


Now, we both know who’s song this is, don’t we? 🙂


Cruise, you are making me sing
Now you have taken me under your wing
Cruise, we both know you’re the best
How can they say you’re like all the rest

Cruise, we’re both travelling so far
Burning out fast like a shooting star
Cruise I feel sure that your song will be sung
And will ring in the ears of everyone

Saving our children, saving our land
Protecting us from things we can’t understand
Power and Glory, Justice and Right
I’m sure that you’ll help us to see the light
And the love that you radiate will keep us warm
And help us to weather the storm

Cruise, you have taken me in
And just when I’ve got you under my skin
You start ignoring the fears I have felt
‘Cause you know you can always make my poor heart melt

Please don’t take what I’m saying amiss
Or misunderstand at a time such as this
Because if such close friends should ever fall out
What would there be left worth fighting about

Power and glory, justice and right
I’m sure that you’ll help them to see the light
Will you save our children, will you save our land
And protect us from all the things we can’t understand?
Power and glory and justice for all
Who will we turn to when your hard rain falls?


Draga Miruna, iti spun printre soapte
Imi place camasa ta de noapte
Dar, mai ales, vreau sa-ti dau de stire
Sa mi-o lasi ca amintire
Sa mi-o lasi ca amintire

Nespus de frumos dormeai o noapte blanda
Zambeai prin somn, iar eu stateam la panda
Sa nu te trezesc, sa tulbur visele tale
Dar vreau sa-ti iau si costumul de baie
Sa te-admir cu si fara costumul de baie

In Gradina Botanica
Intr-o duminica
Ea se plimba
Ne-am fotografiat
Cu un vechi aparat
Automat

Un celebru si bun coleg de facultate
Spunea c-aveai blugii rupti la spate
Veneai spre casa cand afara ploua
Cu troleibuzul 89
Blonda si trista, cum ne-ai placut noua

Cu palaria de paie cu panglica mov
Ieseai din cladirea de pe strada Snagov
Usor te-ndreptai spre Calea Mosilor
Sa-ti iei bluza pepit de la Bucur Obor
Bluza pepit de la Bucur Obor

Venind din practica
Poseta galbena
Ea isi lua
In magazine-a intrat
Fusta si-a cumparat
Maxi-nflorat

Draga Miruna, ce rost are sa-ti cumperi toate lucrurile acestea
Cheltuiesti o suma prea mare de bani
De fapt, stii foarte bine ce-ti spuneam
In seara aceea printre soapte
Imi place camasa ta de noapte
Dar, mai ales, vreau sa-ti dau de stire
Sa mi-o lasi ca amintire
Sa mi-o lasi ca amintire

Acum ma privesti intr-o poza cu zimti
Atunci aveai nervi, dar si buze fierbinti
Si te-auzeam cum strigai printre soapte
Unde-i camasa mea de noapte
La mine-i camasa ta de noapte
Plang pe camasa ta de noapte


In Popa Nan sta un barbos batran si fotograf
Pustii de pe strada spun ca e un zeu .
Stie chiar de esti om bun sau rau
Dupa chipul, dupa chipul tau .

Sub o streasina-i statuia unei fete gri
Sprijinind un cos cu struguri de ciment
Jos in casa stau trei fete gri
Cu comportamentul indecent .

Popa Nan i-o strada-nspre Hala Traian
De la Foisor pana-n Piata Vitan

La un colt i-o florareasa ce ne vinde flori
Mereu plange din nimic si-are par cret .
Cand rade rar, numai la sarbatori
Toate florile ei nu mai au pret

Popa Nan i-o strada-nspre Hala Traian
De la Foisor pana-n Piata Vitan

In Popa Nan i-o frizerie fara musterii
Pensionarii stau in pragu-i la taifas ,
Iar frizerul gras si chel da glas
Unor melodii de cheflii.

Popa Nan i-o strada-nspre Hala Traian
De la Foisor pana-n Piata Vitan

Zilnic trece un postas, cu ochii de cafea
Toate fetele-l citesc si-i scriu vederi,
Numai fata lui ce sta in cartier
Nu e nicaieri, nicaieri .
