The National - "I Need My Girl" on Q (Live)


The National - I Need My Girl
I am good but i am grounded
Davy says that i look taller
I can't get my head around it
I keep feeling smaller and smaller

I need my girl
I need my girl

Remember when you lost your shit
And drove the car into the garden
You got out and said "i'm sorry"
To the vines and no one saw it

I need my girl
I need my girl

I'm under the gun again
I know i was a 45 percenter then
I know i was a lot of things
But i am good but i am grounded
Davy says that i look taller
I can't get my head around it
I keep feeling smaller and smaller

I need my girl
I need my girl

There's some things that i should never
Laugh about in front of family
In a week we'll be together
I'll try to call you when i'm landing

I need my girl
I need my girl

Remember when you said "i'm sorry"
To the vines and no one saw it
I tried to call you from the party
It's full of punks and cannonballers

I need my girl
I need my girl

I'm under the gun again
I know i was a 45 percenter then
I know i was a lot of things
But i am good but i am grounded
Davy says that i look taller
I can't get my head around it
I keep feeling smaller and smaller

I need my girl
I keep feeling smaller and smaller
I need my girl
I keep feeling smaller and smaller

Embriaga-te

Deve-se estar sempre bêbado.
É a única questão.
Afim de não se sentir o fardo horrível do tempo, que parte tuas espáduas e te dobra sobre a terra. É preciso te embriagares
sem trégua.

Mas de quê?
De vinho, de poesia ou de virtude?
A teu gosto mas embriaga-te.

E se alguma vez sobre os degraus de um palácio, sobre a verde relva de uma vala, na sombria solidão de teu quarto, tu te encontras com a embriaguez já minorada ou finda, peça ao vento, à vaga, à estrela, ao pássaro, ao relógio, a tudo aquilo que gira, a tudo aquilo que voa, a tudo aquilo que canta, a tudo aquilo que fala, a tudo aquilo que geme. Pergunte que horas são.
E o vento, a vaga, a estrela, o pássaro, o relógio, te responderão.

É hora de se embriagar !!!

Para não ser como os escravos martirizados do tempo, embriaga-te. Embriaga-te sem cessar.

De vinho, de poesia ou de virtude. A teu gosto...

Charles Baudelaire

Djavan - Oceano (Ao vivo)


Djavan - Oceano
Assim
Que o dia amanheceu
Lá no mar alto da paixão,
Dava prá ver o tempo ruir
Cadê você?
Que solidão!
Esquecera de mim?

Enfim,
De tudo o que
Há na terra
Não há nada em lugar
Nenhum!
Que vá crescer
Sem você chegar
Longe de ti
Tudo parou
Ninguém sabe
O que eu sofri...

Amar é um deserto
E seus temores
Vida que vai na sela
Dessas dores
Não sabe voltar
Me dá teu calor...

Vem me fazer feliz
Porque eu te amo
Você deságua em mim
E eu oceano
E esqueço que amar
É quase uma dor...

Só sei viver
Se for por você!

Se o amor...

Se o amor fosse o dos livros, acreditavas? Se o segredo desvendado fosse tudo o que era preciso, agarravas? Se não houvesse mágoa, rancor, se fossemos só de força e verdade, de respeito, certeza, bondade, pousavas a mão? Se os lugares bons das historias fossem tudo o que ficava do caminho, se o principio inocente e desprendido fosse eterno, todos os dias, de manhã, o primeiro lugar onde se acorda, de corpo perto, olhavas de frente? Se o mundo a gritar fosse mudo, e nós surdos também, confiavas? Sei de um sitio em segredo onde as historias começam. Longe da desilusão há lugares que nos guardam. Longe do medo há lugares onde nos guardamos, onde nos temos no nosso melhor, fotografados, como nos filmes. Se o amor fosse um sitio, um lugar, um quarto que sabíamos onde era, ias até lá? Se fosse um objecto pequeno, que coubesse na mão, uma pedra, um anel, uma semente, um livro antigo, uma carta? Se o amor fosse uma paisagem, um mar, um caminho, uma viagem, chegavas até ao fim? Se o fim não existisse, acreditavas? Se o amor fosse sempre uma pagina em branco, uma frase que se espreita, num livro, o silêncio da descoberta e um sorriso de chegada, olhavas para dentro? Se o amor fosse um beijo parado no tempo, um toque, uma canção, o passeio de um dedo num ombro nu, um sopro, uma dança, a parte quente dos corpos abraçados, a explosão… Se o amor nos falasse baixinho, como um amigo fiel, nos indicasse a direcção, nos acolhesse nos abrisse os olhos, querias ouvir? Se o amor nos amasse, e fosse real. Se o amor fossemos nós também e éramos grandes e infinitos, mas humanos, mas fracos, mas feitos de perdão… Aceitavas? Sei de um sitio puro, limpo, honesto e tão leve que quase não existe no mundo. Sei de um sitio, em segredo, onde as historias começam, e são eternas.

A resposta a uma pequena "brincadeira/provocação"

Recebi um mail (dirigido a vários, homens e mulheres) com uma frase em jeito de "brincadeira/provocação" que dizia:

“Os homens não são todos iguais, não! Cada um tem seu jeito diferente de fazer merda.”
Respondi de pronto a todos:

“Nenhuma situação é tão complicada que uma mulher não possa piorar.”


A verdade é que esta frase hoje parece-me tão certa, infelizmente...

"Mentes insanas"

Diz-me que solidão é essa
Que te põe a falar sozinho
Diz-me que conversa
Estás a ter contigo

Diz-me que desprezo é esse
Que não olhas para quem quer que seja
Ou pensas que não existes
Ninguém que te veja

Que viagem é essa
Que te diriges em todos os sentidos
Andas em busca dos sonhos perdidos

Lá vai o maluco
Lá vai o demente
Lá vai ele a passar
Assim te chama toda essa gente

Mas tu estás sempre ausente e não te conseguem alcançar
Diz-me que loucura é essa
Que te veste de fantasia
Diz-me que te liberta
Que vida fazias

Diz-me que distância é essa
Que levas no teu olhar
Que ânsia e que pressa
Tu queres alcançar

Que viagem é essa
Que te diriges em todos os sentidos
Andas em busca dos sonhos perdidos

Lá vai o maluco
Lá vai o demente
Lá vai ele a passar
Assim te chama toda essa gente

Mas tu estás sempre ausente e não te conseguem alcançar
Mas eu estou sempre ausente e não conseguem alcançar
Não conseguem alcançar"

The National - Sea Of Love

Em Novembro tenho de estar no Pavilhão Atlântico...
The National - Sea Of Love
Before you say you love me Joe
How am I supposed to know?
When you go under the waves
What am I supposed to say?

I see people on the floor
Aspiring to the sea
Can’t stay here anymore
We're turning into thieves

If I stay here trouble will find me
If I stay here I'll never leave
If I stay here trouble will find me
I believe

Joe I'll always think of you
As a kinder child who knew
This was never gonna last
Oh Joe you fell so fast

Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is a virtue
Don't they?
Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is virtue
Don’t they?
Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is virtue
Don’t they?
Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is virtue
Don’t they?
Hey Joe sorry I hurt you but
They say love is a virtue
Don't they?

I see people on the floor
Aspiring to the sea
Can't stay here anymore
We're turning into thieves

I see you rushing now
Tell me how to reach you
I see you rushing now
What’d Harvard teach you? (repeat x5)

15 Things You Should Give Up To Be Happy

Here is a list of 15 things which, if you give up on them, will make your life a lot easier and much, much happier. We hold on to so many things that cause us a great deal of pain, stress and suffering – and instead of letting them all go, instead of allowing ourselves to be stress free and happy – we cling on to them. Not anymore. Starting today we will give up on all those things that no longer serve us, and we will embrace change. Ready? Here we go:

1. Give up your need to always be right. There are so many of us who can’t stand the idea of being wrong – wanting to always be right – even at the risk of ending great relationships or causing a great deal of stress and pain, for us and for others. It’s just not worth it. Whenever you feel the ‘urgent’ need to jump into a fight over who is right and who is wrong, ask yourself this question: “Would I rather be right, or would I rather be kind?”Wayne Dyer. What difference will that make? Is your ego really that big?


2. Give up your need for control. Be willing to give up your need to always control everything that happens to you and around you – situations, events, people, etc. Whether they are loved ones, coworkers, or just strangers you meet on the street – just allow them to be. Allow everything and everyone to be just as they are and you will see how much better will that make you feel.


“By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try. The world is beyond winning.” Lao Tzu

3. Give up on blame. Give up on your need to blame others for what you have or don’t have, for what you feel or don’t feel. Stop giving your powers away and start taking responsibility for your life.

4. Give up your self-defeating self-talk. Oh my. How many people are hurting themselves because of their negative, polluted and repetitive self-defeating mindset? Don’t believe everything that your mind is telling you – especially if it’s negative and self-defeating. You are better than that.

“The mind is a superb instrument if used rightly. Used wrongly, however, it becomes very destructive.” Eckhart Tolle

5. Give up your limiting beliefs about what you can or cannot do, about what is possible or impossible. From now on, you are no longer going to allow your limiting beliefs to keep you stuck in the wrong place. Spread your wings and fly!

“A belief is not an idea held by the mind, it is an idea that holds the mind” Elly Roselle

6. Give up complaining. Give up your constant need to complain about those many, many, maaany things – people, situations, events that make you unhappy, sad and depressed. Nobody can make you unhappy, no situation can make you sad or miserable unless you allow it to. It’s not the situation that triggers those feelings in you, but how you choose to look at it. Never underestimate the power of positive thinking.

7. Give up the luxury of criticism. Give up your need to criticize things, events or people that are different than you. We are all different, yet we are all the same. We all want to be happy, we all want to love and be loved and we all want to be understood. We all want something, and something is wished by us all.

8. Give up your need to impress others. Stop trying so hard to be something that you’re not just to make others like you. It doesn’t work this way. The moment you stop trying so hard to be something that you’re not, the moment you take of all your masks, the moment you accept and embrace the real you, you will find people will be drawn to you, effortlessly.

9. Give up your resistance to change. Change is good. Change will help you move from A to B. Change will help you make improvements in your life and also the lives of those around you. Follow your bliss, embrace change – don’t resist it.
“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls” Joseph Campbell

10. Give up labels. Stop labeling those things, people or events that you don’t understand as being weird or different and try opening your mind, little by little. Minds only work when open. “The highest form of ignorance is when you reject something you don’t know anything about.” Wayne Dyer

11. Give up on your fears. Fear is just an illusion, it doesn’t exist – you created it. It’s all in your mind. Correct the inside and the outside will fall into place.
“The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself.” Franklin D. Roosevelt

12. Give up your excuses. Send them packing and tell them they’re fired. You no longer need them. A lot of times we limit ourselves because of the many excuses we use. Instead of growing and working on improving ourselves and our lives, we get stuck, lying to ourselves, using all kind of excuses – excuses that 99.9% of the time are not even real.

13. Give up the past. I know, I know. It’s hard. Especially when the past looks so much better than the present and the future looks so frightening, but you have to take into consideration the fact that the present moment is all you have and all you will ever have. The past you are now longing for – the past that you are now dreaming about – was ignored by you when it was present. Stop deluding yourself. Be present in everything you do and enjoy life. After all life is a journey not a destination. Have a clear vision for the future, prepare yourself, but always be present in the now.

14. Give up attachment. This is a concept that, for most of us is so hard to grasp and I have to tell you that it was for me too, (it still is) but it’s not something impossible. You get better and better at with time and practice. The moment you detach yourself from all things, (and that doesn’t mean you give up your love for them – because love and attachment have nothing to do with one another, attachment comes from a place of fear, while love… well, real love is pure, kind, and self less, where there is love there can’t be fear, and because of that, attachment and love cannot coexist) you become so peaceful, so tolerant, so kind, and so serene. You will get to a place where you will be able to understand all things without even trying. A state beyond words.

15. Give up living your life to other people’s expectations. Way too many people are living a life that is not theirs to live. They live their lives according to what others think is best for them, they live their lives according to what their parents think is best for them, to what their friends, their enemies and their teachers, their government and the media think is best for them. They ignore their inner voice, that inner calling. They are so busy with pleasing everybody, with living up to other people’s expectations, that they lose control over their lives. They forget what makes them happy, what they want, what they need….and eventually they forget about themselves. You have one life – this one right now – you must live it, own it, and especially don’t let other people’s opinions distract you from your path.

Visto desta forma, não parece assim tão difícil...

Quando a música fala por nós...


Jason Mraz - I Won´t Give Up
When I look into your eyes
It's like watching the night sky
Or a beautiful sunrise
There's so much they hold
And just like them old stars
I see that you've come so far
To be right where you are
How old is your soul?

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up

And when you're needing your space
To do some navigating
I'll be here patiently waiting
To see what you find

Cause even the stars they burn
Some even fall to the earth
We've got a lot to learn
God knows we're worth it
No I won't give up

I don't wanna be someone who walks away so easily
I'm here to stay and make the difference that I can make
Our differences they do a lot to teach us how to use
The tools and gifts we got yeah, we got a lot at stake
And in the end, you're still my friend at least we did intend
For us to work we didn't break, we didn't burn
We had to learn how to bend without the world caving in
I had to learn what I've got, and what I'm not
And who I am

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up
I'm still looking up

I won't give up on us
(No, I'm not giving up)
God knows I'm tough, he knows
(I am tough, I am loved)
We got a lot to learn
(We're alive, We are loved)
God knows we're worth it
(And we're worth it)

I won't give up on us
Even if the skies get rough
I'm giving you all my love
I'm still looking up
