Jealous guy

I was dreaming of the past
And my heart was beating fast
I began to lose control
I began to lose control

I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry that I made you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
I'm just a jealous guy

I was feeling insecure
You might not love me anymore
I was shivering inside
I was shivering inside

I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry that I made you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
I'm just a jealous guy

I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry that I made you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
I'm just a jealous guy

I was trying to catch your eyes
Thought that you was trying to hide
I was swallowing my pain
I was swallowing my pain

I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry that I made you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
I'm just a jealous guy, watch out
I'm just a jealous guy, look out babe
I'm just a jealous guy

(John Lennon)

Aquele frevo axé

Que fazer?
Meu pensamento está preso àquele carnaval
Volto a pisar este chão
Enceno um drama banal
Tento refazer a trama
Mas o desfecho é igual
E você
Será que canta calada aquele frevo axé?
Que não me deixa dormir
Ou terá perdido a fé
No que ficou prometido
Sem nos falarmos sequer
Meu amor
Ando na praça vazia, espero o sol se por
Vejo o clarão se extinguir
Por trás da mão do poeta
Nosso amor não vai sumir
Veja onde a gente se achou
Estrelas já vão luzir
Na noite da Bahia preta
Queria tanto você aqui
Que fazer?

(Caetano Veloso e César Mendes)

I can buy you

a life of sanity and dignity
you know it takes two
and what's the use in being a millionaire
if I can't have you
I wanna buy you... a home
I'll pay your friends if you're feeling alone
the pain of losing a guy like you
it's a bigger cost than paying your dues

I can buy you oh yeah oh yeah
but I can't make you do what you don't
and I can hire you oh yeah oh yeah
but I can't make you love me
I can't make you

you say I never go for little
and I always need more
and you're a thousand dollar playboy
that I just can't afford
but I guess you got me oh oh
you got me hanging around for too long
I don't wanna stop it oh no oh no
I bought you a life and it's with me you belong

I can buy you oh yeah oh yeah
but I can't make you do what you don't
and I can hire you oh yeah oh yeah
but I can't make you love me
I can't make you care

so if I can't make you love me
if I can't make you care
what prize can take me there
in this world?
somebody told me cash is king
I didn't mean to force you oh no
but I bet you fortune it's with me you belong

and I can buy you oh yeah oh yeah
but I can't make you do what you don't
and I can hire you oh yeah oh yeah
but I can't make you love me
I can't make you care
I can't take you there
anymore

(A Camp - Nina Persson)


My funny Valentine

My funny Valentine
Sweet comic Valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable
Unphotographable
Yet you're my favourite work of art

Is your figure less than Greek
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?

But don't change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine stay
Each day is Valentine's day

Is your figure less than Greek
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?

But don't you change one hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine stay
Each day is Valentine's day

(Rodgers / Hart)

Fuck you

Look inside
Look inside your tiny mind
Now look a bit harder
Cause we're so uninspired,
so sick and tired
of all the hatred you harbour.

So you say
it's not OK to be gay
Well I think you're just evil
You're just some racist
who can't tie my laces
Your point of view is medieval

Fuck you (fuck you)
Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
and we hate your whole crew
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you (fuck you)
Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don't translate
and it's getting quite late
So please don't stay in touch

Do you get
Do you get a little kick out of
being small-minded?
You want to be like your father,
his approval you're after
Well that's not how you find it.

Do you,
Do you really enjoy
living a life that's so hateful?
Cause there's a hole where your soul should be
You're losing control of it
And it's really distasteful

Fuck you (fuck you)
Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
and we hate your whole crew
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you (fuck you)
Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don't translate
and it's getting quite late
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you
Fuck you

You say you think we need to go to war
Well you're already in one
Cause it's people like you
that need to get slew
No one wants your opinion

Fuck you (fuck you)
Fuck you very, very much
Cause we hate what you do
and we hate your whole crew
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you (fuck you)
Fuck you very, very much
Cause your words don't translate
and it's getting quite late
So please don't stay in touch

Fuck you
Fuck you
Fuck you

(Lily Allen - "It's not me, it´s you")

Holy Love

When you love
I can feel your love
Shooting holes in my stupid pride
When you love
I don't fear your love
Of all the angels you're the most divine

Holy love
You can really have anything you want from me
Anything you ask me to, I'll do
We can live in poverty or prosperity
Anything impossible, I'll try
You can really have everything you ask
And I'll be intimate with you
Giving everything over
To making everything right

Holy love
When you love
I can feel your love
Shooting holes in my stupid pride
When you love
I don't fear your love
Of all the angels you're the most divine
Holy love

You can really make anyone you want of me
Anyone you need tonight, I'll be
Whether you want empathy, animosity
An enemy or company, call me
I can even be nothing if you ask
I'll turn invisible for you
I'm the bird on your shoulder
Singing psalms through the night
Of holy love

When you love
I can feel your love
Throwing rocks through the windows of a monastery
Love
Makes me feel the super extra gravity
Of god, yeah!
And life
When you love
I can feel your love
Of all the angels you're the most divine

(The Cardigans - music by Peter Svensson - lyrics by Nina Persson & Nathan Larson)

Como dois e dois

Quando você me ouvir cantar
Venha não creia, eu não corro perigo
Digo, não digo, não ligo
Deixo no ar
Eu sigo apenas porque eu gosto de cantar

Tudo vai mal, tudo
Tudo é igual quando eu canto e sou mudo
Mas eu não minto, não minto, estou longe e perto
Sinto alegrias tristezas e brinco

Meu amor, tudo em volta está deserto, tudo certo
Tudo certo como dois e dois são cinco

Quando você me ouvir chorar
Tente, não cante, não conte comigo
Falo, não calo, não falo, deixo sangrar
Algumas lágrimas bastam pra consolar

Tudo vai mal, tudo
Tudo mudou não me iludo e contudo
A mesma porta sem trinco, o mesmo teto
E a mesma lua a furar nosso zinco

Meu amor, tudo em volta está deserto, tudo certo
Tudo certo como dois e dois são cinco

(Caetano Veloso)

And then you kissed me II

Slowdancing tight
My barren heart and I
Your name used to taste so sweet
Then you beat the love right out of me
It's a mystery how people behave!
How we long for a life as a slave
When he kissed me I gladly gave in
To a fight nobody could win

Man, he left me blue
And if I could, I would do it too
I tell you now like I told you before
Love is a powerful force
And it's a mystery how people behave!
How we long for a life as a slave
And tumble into any open arms
That will only ever do you harm

Oh, you you, it's always you
The best kisser that I ever knew
True love is cruel love
Not much to be proud of
Nerve-wrecking acrobatic backwards bend
All for a happy end

It's a mystery how people behave!
How we worry ourselves to the grave
When he kissed me I lost everything
Then I got up and did it again

Oh you you, it's always you
The hardest hitter that I ever knew
True love is cruel love
Not much to be proud of
Ass-kissing mercy-missing faithless friend
All for a happy end

(The Cardigans - music by Peter Svensson - lyrics by Nina Persson & Nathan Larson)

Losing a friend




You're losing a friend
You got it all wrong
It's not about revenge
But you're losing a friend

I didn't see it coming
With my head stuck in the sand
But now I'm losing a friend
And it's keeping me up
It's the ribbons I tie
I would rather just die
Go to hell and crawl back
And let you go

You're losing a friend
You jeopardise me
Bad bad blood on your hands

And see, you're losing a friend
I´m fickle and I'm vain
And you trick me over and over again
And now I'm losing you
And it's killing me
It's the strings that I tie
I would rather just die
Go to hell and crawl back
Than let it all go

My mistake... to lose you

Oh, no, oh, no! So this is the end, now
I'm losing you
Oh, look at you!
Look what you're wasting
You're losing a friend
Oh, no Oh, no! I'm losing a friend
Oh, oh oh no

(The Cardigans - music by Peter Svensson - lyrics by Nina Persson)

Mamãe coragem

Mamãe, mamãe, não chore
A vida é assim mesmo
Eu fui embora
Mamãe, mamãe, não chore
Eu nunca mais vou voltar por aí
Mamãe, mamãe, não chore
A vida é assim mesmo
Eu quero mesmo é isto aqui

Mamãe, mamãe, não chore
Pegue uns panos pra lavar
Leia um romance
Veja as contas do mercado

Pague as prestações
Ser mãe
É desdobrar fibra por fibra
Os corações dos filhos
Seja feliz
Seja feliz

Mamãe, mamãe, não chore
Eu quero, eu posso, eu quis, eu fiz
Mamãe, seja feliz
Mamãe, mamãe, não chore
Não chore nunca mais, não adianta
Eu tenho um beijo preso na garganta

Eu tenho um jeito de quem não se espanta
(Braço de ouro vale 10 milhões)
Eu tenho corações fora peito
Mamãe, não chore
Não tem jeito
Pegue uns panos pra lavar
Leia um romance
Leia "Alzira morta virgem"
"O grande industrial"

Eu por aqui vou indo muito bem
De vez em quando brinco Carnaval

E vou vivendo assim: felicidade
Na cidade que eu plantei pra mim
E que não tem mais fim
Não tem mais fim
Não tem mais fim

(Caetano Veloso e Torquato Neto)
