Love Songs

Place me like a seal over your heart,
Like a seal on your arm,
For love is as strong as death.

Song of Solomon

 

What Is A Youth from "Romeo and Juliet"

 


King Crimson - Lady Of The Dancing Water 

sound


 

 

Grass in your hair stretched like a lion in the sun
Restlessly turned moistened your mouth with your tongue.
Pouring my wine in your eyes caged mine glowing
Touching your face my fingers strayed knowing.
I called you lady of the dancing water.

Blown autumn leaves shed to the fire where you laid me
Burn slow to ash just as my days now seem to be.
I feel you still always your eyes glowing
Remembered hours salt, earth and flowers flowing
Farewell my lady of the dancing water.

 

Lady Of The Dancing Water

 


Leonard Cohen - Take This Waltz 

sound 


 

Now in Vienna there's ten pretty women
There's a shoulder where Death comes to cry
There's a lobby with nine hundred windows
There's a tree where the doves go to die
There's a piece that was torn from the morning
And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take this waltz with the clamp on its jaws

Oh I want you, I want you, I want you
On a chair with a dead magazine
In the cave at the tip of the lily
In some hallways where love's never been
On a bed where the moon has been sweating
In a cry filled with footsteps and sand
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take its broken waist in your hand

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz
With its very own breath of brandy and Death
Dragging its tail in the sea

There's a concert hall in Vienna
Where your mouth had a thousand reviews
There's a bar where the boys have stopped talking
They've been sentenced to death by the blues
Ah, but who is it climbs to your picture
With a garland of freshly cut tears?
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
Take this waltz it's been dying for years

There's an attic where children are playing
Where I've got to lie down with you soon
In a dream of Hungarian lanterns
In the mist of some sweet afternoon
And I'll see what you've chained to your sorrow
All your sheep and your lilies of snow
Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay
Take this waltz, take this waltz
With its "I'll never forget you, you know!";

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz ...
With its very own breath of brandy and Death
Dragging its tail in the sea

And I'll dance with you in Vienna
I'll be wearing a river's disguise
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
My mouth on the dew of your thighs
And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook,
With the photographs there, and the moss
And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty
My cheap violin and my cross
And you'll carry me down on your dancing
To the pools that you lift on your wrist
Oh my love, Oh my love
Take this waltz, take this waltz
It's yours now.
It's all that there is.

 

Take This Waltz

Leonard Cohen - Dance Me To The End Of Love 

sound 


 

Dance me to your beauty
With a burning violin
Dance me through the panic
Till I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch
And be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Oh let me see your beauty
When the witnesses are gone
Let me feel you moving
Like they do in Babylon
Show me slowly
What I only know the limits of
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the wedding now,
Dance me on and on
Dance me very tenderly
And dance me very long
We're both of us beneath our love,
We're both of us above
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to the children
Who are asking to be born
Dance me through the curtains
That our kisses have out worn
Raise a tent of shelter now,
Though every thread is torn
Dance me to the end of love

Dance me to your beauty
With a burning violin
Dance me through the panic
Till I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch
And be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

 

Dance Me To The End Of Love

Luciano Pavarotti  - Caruso

sound 


 

Qui dove il mare luccica,
e tira forte il vento
sulla vecchia terrazza
davanti al golfo di Surriento
un uomo abbraccia una ragazza
dopo che aveva pianto
poi si schiarisce la voce,
e ricomincia il canto

Te vojo bene assai
ma tanto tanto bene sai
и una catena ormai
che scioglie il sangue dint-e
vene sai-

Vide le luci in mezzo al mare,
penso alle notti lа in America
ma erano solo le lampare
e la bianca scia di un-elica
senti il dolore
nella musica,
e si atzт dal pianoforte
ma quando vide uscire
la luna da una nuvola,
gli sembro piu dolce anche la morte
guardт negli occhi la ragazza,
quegli occhi verdi come il mare
poi all-improvviso usci una lacrima
e lui credette di affogare


Te vojo bene assai
ma tanto tanto bene sai
и una catena ormai
che scioglie il sangue dint-e
vene sai-

Potenza della lirica,
dove ogni dramma e un falso
che con un po- di trucco e con la mimica
puoi diventare un altro
ma due occhi che ti guardano,
cosi vicini e veri
ti fan scordare le parole,
confondono i pensieri
cosi diventa tutto piccolo,
anche le notti lа in America
ti volti e vedi la tua vita,
dietro la scia di un-elica
ma si, la vita che finisce,
e non ci penso poi tanto
anzi, si sentiva giа felice,
e ricominciт il suo canto

Te vojo bene assai
ma tanto tanto bene sai
и una catena ormai
che scioglie il sangue dint-e
vene sai-

Beatles  - All my loving

sound 


 

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you,
Tomorrow I'll miss you,
Remember I'll always be true.
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day,
And I'll send all my loving to you.

I pretend that I'm kissing
The lips I am missing
And hope that my dreams will come true.
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day
And I'll send all my loving to you.

All my loving I will send to you,
All my loving, darling, I'll be true.

Close your eyes and I'll kiss you,
Tomorrow I'll miss you,
Remember I'll always be true.
And then while I'm away
I'll write home every day,
And I'll send all my loving to you.

All my loving I will send to you,
All my loving darling I'll be true.
All my loving, all my loving,
All my loving I will send to you.

 

All my loving

Beatles  - And I love her

sound 


 

I give her all my love,
That's all I do.
And if you saw my love
You'd love her too,
I love her.

She gives me everything
And tenderly
The kiss my love brings
She brings to me,
And I love her.

A love like ours
Could never die
As long as I
Have you near me.

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark in the sky,
I know this love of mine
Will never die,
And I love her.

Bright are the stars that shine
Dark in the sky,
I know this love of mine
Will never die,
And I love her.

And I love her

Beatles  - I'll be back 

sound


 

You know if you break my heart I'll go
But I'll be back again
'Cos I told you once before goodbye
But I came back again.

I love you so-oh
I'm the one who wants you,
Yes, I'm the one who want you,
Oh-oh.

Oh, you could find better things to do
Than to break my heart again,
This time I will try to show that I'm
Not trying to pretend.

I thought that you would realize
That if I run away from you,
That you would want me too,
But I've got a big surprise, oh-oh.

Oh, you could find better things to do
Than to break my heart again,
This time I will try to show that I'm
Not trying to pretend.

I wanna go
But I hate to leave you,
You know I hate to leave you,
Oh-oh.

Oh, you, if you'll break my heart I'll go
But I'll be back again.

I'll be back

Gorky Park - Two candles 

sound


 

Loneliness is my only guest
Who visits me alone at night
When it comes I light two candles
Just the way it was
And pretend the flames become your eyes

Emptiness is a friend I guess
The shadow played upon the wall
If I let the candles take me
I can see your face
And remember hearing someone call your name

My candles are crying
My candles are crying
They're crying for you
They're waiting for you
I'm waiting for you

Is it you knocking at my door
Or maybe just a ghostly wind
How I wish that you were here
Sitting by my side
And you'll bring me back to life again tonight

Two candles

Sting - Shape Of My Heart  

sound 


 

He deals the cards as a meditation
And those he plays never suspect
He doesn't play for the money he wins
He don't play for respect
He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of a probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart

He may play the jack of diamonds
He may lay the queen of spades
He may conceal a king in his hand
While the memory of it fades

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart

And if I told you that I loved you
You'd maybe think there's something wrong
I'm not a man of too many faces
The mask I wear is one

Well, those who speak know nothin'
And find out to their cost
Like those who curse their luck in too many places
And those who fear are lost

I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that diamonds mean money for this art
But that's not the shape of my heart
That's not the shape, the shape of my heart
That's not the shape, the shape of my heart

Shape Of My Heart

Sting - Mad About You 

sound 


 

A stone's throw from Jerusalem
I walked a lonely mile in the moonlight
And though a million stars were shining
My heart was lost on a distant planet
That whirls around the April moon
Whirling in an arc of sadness

I'm lost without you I'm lost without you
Though all my kingdoms turn to sand
And fall into the sea
I'm mad about you
I'm mad about you

And from the dark secluded valleys
I heard the ancient songs of sadness
But every step I thought of you
Every footstep only you
And every star a grain of sand
The leavings of a dried up ocean
Tell me, how much longer?
How much longer?

They say a city in the desert lies
The vanity of an ancient king
But the city lies in broken pieces
Where the wind howls and the vultures sing
These are the works of man
This is the sum of our ambition
It would make a prison of my life
If you became another's wife
With every prison blown to dust
My enemies walk free
I'm mad about you
I'm mad about you

And I have never in my life
Felt more alone than I do now
Although I claim dominions over all I see
It means nothing to me
There are no victories
In all our histories, without love

A stone's throw from Jerusalem
I walked a lonely mile in the moonlight
And through a million stars were shining
My heart was lost on a distant planet
That whirls around the April moon
Whirling in an arc of sadness
I'm lost without you
I'm lost without you

And though you hold the keys to ruin
Of everything I see
With every prison blown to dust,
My enemies walk free
Though all my kingdoms turn to sand
And fall into the sea
I'm mad about you
I'm mad about you

Mad About You

Elvis - Are you lonesome tonight 

sound 


 

Are you lonesome tonight,
do you miss me tonight?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memory stray to a bright summer day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?
Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there?
Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

Are you lonesome tonight

Elvis - Can't Help Falling in Love 

sound 


 

Wise men say only fools rush in
but I can't help falling in love with you
Shall I stay
would it be a sin
If I can't falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life, too
for I can't falling in love with you

Like a river flows surely to the sea
Darling so it goes
some things are meant to be
take my hand, take my whole life, too
for I can't falling in love with you
for I can't falling in love with you

Can't Help Falling in Love

Nina Simone - I Put A Spell On You 

sound 


 

I put a spell on you
'Cause you're mine

You better stop the things you do
I ain't lying
No I ain't lying

You know I can't stand it
You're running around
You know better, daddy
I can't stand it cause you put me down

I put a spell on you
Because you're mine
You're mine

I love you
I love you
I love you
I love you anyhow
And I don't care

I Put A Spell On You

Nina Simone - Ne Me Quitte Pas 

sound  


 

Ne me quitte pas
Il faut oublier
Tout peut s'oublier
Qui s'enfuit deja
Oublier le temps
Des malentendus
Et le temps perdu
A savoir comment
Oublier ces heures
Qui tuaient parfois
A coups de pourquoi
Le coeur du bonheur
Ne me quitte pas (4 fois)

Moi je t'offrirai
Des perles de pluie
Venues de pays
Ou il ne pleut pas
Je creuserai la terre
Jusqu'apres ma mort
Pour couvrir ton corps
D'or et de lumière
Je ferai un domaine
Ou l'amour sera roi
Ou l'amour sera loi
Ou tu seras reine
Ne me quitte pas (4 fois)

Ne me quitte pas
Je t'inventerai
Des mots insensés
Que tu comprendras
Je te parlerai
De ces amants là
Qui ont vu deux fois
Leurs coeurs s'embraser
Je te racont'rai
L'histoire de ce roi
Mort de n'avoir pas
Pu te rencontrer
Ne me quitte pas (4 fois)

On a vu souvent
Rejaillir le feu
De l'ancien volcan
Qu'on croyait trop vieux
Il est paraît-il
Des terres brulees
Donnant plus de ble
Qu'un meilleur avril
Et quand vient le soir
Pour qu'un ciel flamboie
Le rouge et le noir
Ne s'épousent-ils pas
Ne me quitte pas (4 fois)

Ne me quitte pas
Je ne vais plus pleurer
Je ne vais plus parler
Je me cacherai là
À te regarder
Danser et sourire
Et à t'écouter
Chanter et puis rire
Laisse-moi devenir
L'ombre de ton ombre
L'ombre de ta main
L'ombre de ton chien
Ne me quitte pas (4 fois)

Ne Me Quitte Pas

Bob Dylan - She Belongs To Me 

sound 


 

She's got everything she needs,
She's an artist, she don't look back.
She's got everything she needs,
She's an artist, she don't look back.
She can take the dark out of the nighttime
And paint the daytime black.

You will start out standing
Proud to steal her anything she sees.
You will start out standing
Proud to steal her anything she sees.
But you will wind up peeking through her keyhole
Down upon your knees.

She never stumbles,
She's got no place to fall.
She never stumbles,
She's got no place to fall.
She's nobody's child,
The Law can't touch her at all.

She wears an Egyptian ring
That sparkles before she speaks.
She wears an Egyptian ring
That sparkles before she speaks.
She's a hypnotist collector,
You are a walking antique.

Bow down to her on Sunday,
Salute her when her birthday comes.
Bow down to her on Sunday,
Salute her when her birthday comes.
For Halloween give her a trumpet
And for Christmas, buy her a drum.

She Belongs To Me

Bob Dylan - I Want You

sound 


 

The guilty undertaker sighs,
The lonesome organ grinder cries,
The silver saxophones say I should refuse you.
The cracked bells and washed-out horns
Blow into my face with scorn,
But it's not that way,
I wasn't born to lose you.
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad,
Honey, I want you.


The drunken politician leaps
Upon the street where mothers weep
And the saviors who are fast asleep,
They wait for you.
And I wait for them to interrupt
Me drinkin' from that broken cup
And ask me to
Open up the gate for you.
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad,
Honey, I want you.

Now all my fathers, they've gone down,
True love they've been without it.
But all their daughters put me down
'Cause I don't think about it.


Well, I return to the Queen of Spades
And talk with my chambermaid.
She knows that I'm not afraid
To look at her
She is good to me
And there's nothing she doesn't see.
She knows where I'd like to be
But it doesn't matter.
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad
Honey, I want you.

Now your dancing child with his Chinese suit,
He spoke to me, I took his flute.
No, I wasn't very cute to him,
Was I?
But I did it, though, because he lied
Because he took you for a ride
And because tine was on his side
And because I...
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad
Honey, I want you.

I Want You

Bob Dylan - Just Like a Woman

sound 


 

Nobody feels any pain
Tonight as I stand inside the rain
Everybody knows
That Baby's got new clothes
But lately I see her ribbons and her bows
Have fallen from her curls.
She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl.

Queen Mary, she's my friend
Yes, I believe I'll go see her again
Nobody has to guess
That Baby can't be blessed
Till she sees finally that she's like all the rest
With her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls.
She takes just like a woman, yes, she does
She makes love just like a woman, yes, she does
And she aches just like a woman
But she breaks just like a little girl.

It was raining from the first
And I was dying there of thirst
So I came in here
And your long-time curse hurts
But what's worse
Is this pain in here
I can't stay in here
Ain't it clear that

I just can't fit
Yes, I believe it's time for us to quit
When we meet again
Introduced as friends
Please don't let on that you knew me when
I was hungry and it was your world.
Ah, you fake just like a woman, yes, you do
You make love just like a woman, yes, you do
Then you ache just like a woman
But you break just like a little girl.

Just Like a Woman

Louis Armstrong - What a wonderful world

sound 


 

I see trees of green, red roses, too
I see them bloom, for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue, and clouds of white,
The bright blessed day,
The dark sacred night
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

The colour of the rainbow,
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces,
Of people going by
I see friends shaking hands,
Saying "How do you do?"
They're really sayin': "I love you".

I hear babies cry,
I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more,
Than I'll ever know
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world,
Yes, I think to myself,
What a wonderful world

What a wonderful world
