Night vision

From Juan Gris of Paul Eluard, music by Francis Poulenc

By day give thanks
By night beware
Half the world in sweetness
The other in fear
When the darkness takes you

With her hand across your face
Don’t give in too quickly
Find the thing she’s erased
Find the line, find the shape
Through the grain

Find the outline, things will
Tell you their name
The table. the guitar
The empty glass
All will blend together when
Daylight has passed

Find the line, find the shape
Through the grain
Find the outline, things will
Tell you their name

Now I watch you falling into sleep
Watch your fist curl against the sheet
Watch your lips fall open and your eyes dim
In blind faith
I would shelter you
Keep you in light
But I can only teach you
Night vision
Night vision
Night vision

Vangelis

China

I take a bottle of wine and I go drink it among the flowers.
We are allways three … counting my shadow and my friend the shimmering moon.
Happily the moon knows nothing of drinking, and my shadow is never thirsty.
When I sing, the moon listens to me in silence.
When I dance, my shadow dances too.
After all festivities the guests must depart.
This sadness I do not know.
When I go home, the moon goes with me and my shadow follows me.

Starlight

I been hanging down the east side
A place for everyone
But then I haven’t seen you for long time
From my home town
You…I see… will see… my dream… your dream… for it… come true
You… I will… will eyes… your eyes… above… above… the room
Thought of you and took up here
Not gonna mess around
Mum and Dad would be so proud
You never let me down
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?

It’s good for me to be someone
A huge man, a superstar
But now you need to be the one
Far from my own ground
You…I see… will see… my dream… your dream… for it… come true
You… I will… will eyes… your eyes… above… above… the room

Thought of you and took up here… Now release your mind
Not gonna mess around…You are what you want
Mum and Dad would be so proud… Time is taking lies
You never let me down.. You are what you mean

Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?

Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?

Starlight, can you hear me my friend?
Can you tell me what’s the name of the starlight?
Starlight, can you hear me my friend?

Star Wars Cantina

The Star Wars Cantina

Mark Jonathan Davis.

“Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope” (spoken by Princess Leia)

Her name was Leia
She was a princess
With a danish on each ear
And Darth Vader drawing near
So R2-D2
Found Ben Kenobi
He’d have to put the Death Star plans
Into the rebellion’s hands
So Luke and Obi-Wan
Had to get to Alderaan
So they stopped into Mos Eisley to have a drink with Han

(CHORUS)
at the Star Wars, Star Wars Cantina
The weirdest creatures you’ve ever seen-a
Here at the Star Wars, Star Wars Cantina
Music and blasters
And old Jedi masters
At the Star Wars….

His name was Solo
He was a pilot
With a blaster at his side
And a smile 12 parsecs wide
There with Chewbacca
He was a wookie
They met with Luke and Obi-Wan
About the Millenium Falcon
Docking bay ninety-four
Stormtroopers at the door
With a flash of Ben’s light-saber, now there’s an arm on the floor

(REPEAT CHORUS)

“Mos Eisley spaceport…you will never find the more wretched hive
of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.” (spoken by Ben Kenobi)

His name was Yoda
He was a muppet
Darth Vader was so bad
And by the way, he’s Luke’s dad
Luke kissed his sister
His hand got cut-off
In that galaxy far, far away
Luke has had a lousy day
Boba Fett was so mean
Jabba had bad hygiene
Why didn’t they all just relax back on Tatooine

(REPEAT CHORUS)

“The force will be with you…always.” (spoken by Ben)

April Come She Will

Lyrics & music by Paul SIMON. Interpreted by Paul SIMON et Arthur GARFUNKEL. Album: Sounds of Silence, 1965.

April come she will
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain;
May she will stay,
Resting in my arms again.

June she’ll change her tune,
In restless walks she’ll prowl the night;
July, she will fly
And give no warning to her flight.

August, die she must,
The automn winds blow chilly and cold;
September, I’ll remember,
A new love once new has now grown old.

Scarbrorough Fair / Canticle

Lyrics & music by Paul SIMON. Interpreted by Paul SIMON and Arthur GARFUNKEL. Album: Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, 1966.

Are you going to Scarborough Fair:
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt:
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
Without no seams nor needle work,
Then she’ll be a true love of mine.

On the side of a hill in the deep forest green.
Tracing of sparrow on snow-crested brown.
Blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain
Sleeps unaware of the clarion call.

Tell her to find me an acre of land:
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
Between the salt water and the sea strand,
Then she’ll be a true love of mine.

On the side of a hill a sprinkling of leaves.
Washes the grave with silvery tears.
A soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
Sleeps unaware of the clarion call.

Tell her to reap it with a sickle of leather:
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme;
And gather it all in a bunch of heather,
Then she’ll be a true love of mine.

War bellows blazing in scarlet battalions.
General order their soldiers to kill.
And to fight for a cause they’ve long ago forgotten.

Chan Chan

(Dm) – (F) – (C or Gm) – (A7)

De (Dm) Alto Cedro voy (F) para Marcane
(C or Gm) Luego a Cueto voy (A7) para Mayari.

El cariiao a,ue te tengo
Yo no lo puedo negar
Se me sale la babita
Yo no lo puedo evitar.

Cuando Juanica y Chan Chan
En el mar cernian arena
Como sacudia el ‘jibe’
A Chan Chan le daba pena.

Limpia el camino de pajas
Que yo me quiero sentar
En aquel tronco que veo
Y asi no puedo llegar.

De Alto Cedro voy para Marcane
Luego a Cueto voy para Mayari.

If I ever feel better

They say an end can be a start
Feels like I’ve been buried yet I’m still alive
It’s like a bad day that never ends
I feel the chaos around me

A thing I don’t try to deny
I’d better learn to accept that
There are things in my life that I can’t control

They say love ain’t nothing but a sore
I don’t even know what love is
Too many tears have had to fall
Don’t you know I’m so tired of it all

I have known terror dizzy spells
Finding out the secrets words won’t tell
Whatever it is it can’t be named
There’s a part of my world that’s fading away

You know I don’t want to be clever
To be brilliant or superior
True like ice, true like fire
Now I know that a breeze can blow me away

Now I know there’s much more dignity
In defeat than in the brightest victory
I’m losing my balance on the tight rope
Tell me please, tell me please, tell me please…

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it’s all over I’ll let you know

Hang on to the good days
I can lean on my friends
They help me going through hard times

But I’m feeding the enemy
I’m in league with the foe
Blame me for what’s happening
I can’t try, I can’t try, I can’t try…

No one knows the hard times I went through
If happiness came I miss the call
The stormy days ain’t over
I’ve tried and lost know I think that I pay the cost

Now I’ve watched all my castles fall
They were made of dust, after all
Someday all this mess will make me laugh
I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait…

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it’s all over I’ll let you know

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it’s all over I’ll let you know

It’s like somebody took my place
I ain’t even playing my own game
The rules have changed well I didn’t know
There are things in my life I can’t control

I feel the chaos around me
A thing I don’t try to deny
I’d better learn to accept that
There’s a part of my life that will go away

Dark is the night, cold is the ground
In the circular solitude of my heart
As one who strives a hill to climb
I am sure I’ll come through I don’t know how

They say an end can be a start
Feels like I’ve been buried yet I’m still alive
I’m losing my balance on the tight rope
Tell me please, tell me please, tell me please…

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it’s all over I’ll let you know

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it’s all over I’ll let you know

If I ever feel better
Remind me to spend some good time with you
You can give me your number
When it’s all over I’ll let you know
