Cuando la música habla por mi...

A veces encuentro entre canciones las letras que dicen eso que quiero decir y no se cómo. A veces encuentro respuestas que estaba buscando para mi mundo.

Crash And Burn-Savage Garden

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please to tame your wild wild heart
I know you feel like the walls are closing in on you
It's hard to find relief and people can be so cold
When darkness is upon your door and you feel like you can't take anymore

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

When you feel all alone
And a loyal friend is hard to find
You're caught in a one way street
With the monsters in your head
When hopes and dreams are far away and
You feel like you can't face the day

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

'Cause there has always been heartache and pain
And when it's over you'll breathe again
You'll breath again

When you feel all alone
And the world has turned its back on you
Give me a moment please
To tame your wild wild heart

Let me be the one you call
If you jump I'll break your fall
Lift you up and fly away with you into the night
If you need to fall apart
I can mend a broken heart
If you need to crash then crash and burn
You're not alone

Affirmation-Savage Garden

I believe the sun should never set upon an argument
I believe we place our happiness in other people's hands
I believe that junk food tastes so good because it's bad for you
I believe your parents did the best job they knew how to do
I believe that beauty magazines promote low self-esteem
I believe I'm loved when I'm completely by myself alone
I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe you can't control or choose your sexuality
I believe that trust is more important than monogamy
I believe your most attractive features are your heart and soul
I believe that family is worth more than money or gold
I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair
I believe the only ones who disagree are millionaires

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye

I believe forgiveness is the key to your unhappiness
I believe that wedded bliss negates the need to be undressed
I believe that God does not endorse TV evangelists
I believe in love surviving death into eternity

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can't appreciate real love until you've been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don't know what you've got until you say goodbye.

Superman-Goldfinger

So here I am
doing everything I can
holding on to what I am
pretending I'm a superman

I'm trying to keep
the ground on my feet
it seems the world's
falling down around me

The nights are all long
I'm singing this song
to try and make the answers
more than maybe

And I'm so confused
about what to do
sometimes I want
to throw it all away

So here I am
growing older all the time
looking older all the time
feeling younger in my mind

And here I am
doing everything I can
holding on to what I am
pretending I'm a superman

I'm trying to sleep
I lost count of the sheep
my mind is racing faster
every minute

What could I do more
yeah I'm really not sure
I know I'm running circles
but I can't quit

And I'm so confused
about what to do
sometimes I want
to throw it all away

Controlling everything in site
I'm feeling weak
I don't feel right
you're telling me
I have to change
telling me to act my age
but if all that I can do
is just sit and watch time go
then I'll have to say good-bye
life's too short to watch it fly
to watch it fly

So here I am
growing older all the time
looking older all the time
feeling younger in my mind

And here I am
doing everything I can
holding on to what I am
pretending I'm a superman.

La vida es una burla obscena, fui yo la que le enseñé esta oración. Anteriormente este hecho me hubiera enorgullecido pero hoy al verla tan rota, tan llena de enojo y resentimiento me arrepiento de haberlo mencionado tantas veces durante nuestras conversaciones. Hoy creo que la vida no es justa, es cierto eso lo mantengo, pero también pienso que está en manos de cada uno de nosotros cambiarla, nosotros llevamos el volante de este carro, de nosotros depende hacia donde decidamos dirigirlo. Cuando hoy le dije que pensaba que esta universidad que usted tanto repudia era la mejor opción que se le presentaba entre todas las universidades privadas, a pesar de muchos de sus contras, fue una sugerencia, una opinión muy mía. No puedo estar sugiriéndole qué hacer porque ya han sido tantas las veces en que me he hundido en ese hueco de incertidumbre en el que usted se encuentra ahora…No puedo decirle que hacer y me disculpo si me excedí en sugerirle algún camino en específico, porque yo misma no puedo decir hacia donde voy yo. A veces nos toca recorrer caminos que nunca pensamos que nos tocaría caminar, y durante ese recorrido es probable que no veamos la continuación de la senda, seguro hay muchas hierbas atravesadas o tal vez es sólo un espacio oscuro lo que vemos venir, pero quién dijo que no podemos caminar sobre las matas o flotar sobre ese espacio oscuro. Lo que creo en definitiva, y usted juzgará si me vuelvo a exceder en esto, es que no hay que parar, no hay que dejar que ese miedo a lo que no conocemos nos venza, nos inmovilice, porque al dejar de intentarlo dejamos pasar por alto muchas oportunidades, sí puede que nos mantenga alejados del dolor, pero sé, y esto sí lo digo con certeza, que no hay sentimiento peor que el del vacío que queda al dejar de intentarlo. Algunos poemas y canciones que me "motivan" cuando pienso que no lo logro:

PROVERBIOS Y CANTARES-ANTONIO MACHADO

XIII
Es el mejor de los buenos
quien sabe que en esta vida
todo es cuestión de medida:
un poco más, algo menos...


XXIX
Caminante, son tus huellas
el camino, y nada más;
caminante, no hay camino,
se hace camino al andar.
Al andar se hace camino,
y al volver la vista atrás
se ve la senda que nunca
se ha de volver a pisar.
Caminante, no hay camino,
sino estelas en la mar.

XLIV
Todo pasa y todo queda;
pero lo nuestro es pasar,
pasar haciendo caminos,
caminos sobre la mar.

XLVIII
Mirando mi calavera
un nuevo Hamlet dirá:
He aquí un lindo fósil de una
careta de carnaval.
(JAJAJAJAJA...LO ADMITO, ÉSTA LA ACABO DE DESCUBRIR PERO PUSO UNA SONRISA EN MI KRA...ESPERO KE TENGA EL MISMO EFECTO EN UD)


DRIVE-INCUBUS(favor obviar las referencias a bebidas alcohólicas jeje)

Sometimes, I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear
And I can't help but ask myself how much I let the fear
Take the wheel and steer
It's driven me before
And it seems to have a vague, haunting mass appeal
But lately I'm beginning to find that I
Should be the one behind the wheel

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
With open arms and open eyes yeah

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
I'll be there

So if I decide to waiver my chance to be one of the hive
Will I choose water over wine and hold my own and drive?
It's driven me before
And it seems to be the way that everyone else gets around
But lately I'm beginning to find that
When I drive myself my light is found

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
With open arms and open eyes yeah

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
I'll be there

Would you choose the water over wine
Hold the wheel and drive

I'LL BE HERE A WHILE-311

'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while

Far is solace in the maddening pace
sad state written on my face
not a tight rope walk but dance
uncertain game of chance
but I'll see it through in time

I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while

And if a person place or thing can deliver
I will quiver with delight
tempted by the hand that could
blind my vision and sight
but at twenty years of age
in frolic and in rage
I will see it through in time

I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
I'll be here a while

But the dawn has come into the endless night
and everything's going to be alright
but at thirty years of age
through frolic and in rage
all regressed and healed in time

I'll be here a while, ain't going nowhere
Said I, said I, said I, I will survive
