 (by AllMusic)

The story of vocalist Melody Gardot is as remarkable as any who perseveres against abject adversity. Born in New Jersey in 1985, she took up piano and played as a youngster on the nightclub scene of Philadelphia, influenced by jazz, folk, rock, and pop music. At age 19 she was a fashion student at the Community College of Philadelphia. But, on a fateful day, while riding her bicycle, the driver of a Jeep made an illegal turn, hurdling into Gardot and leaving her in the street for dead. As she lay hospitalized for months with multiple head injuries and pelvic fractures, her love for music was the best therapy she could receive. While in her hospital bed, she wrote and recorded songs that would become the EP Some Lessons. Upon her eventual release from intensive care, Gardot found the strength and determination to further her career as an artist. Blessed with a beautiful voice and grand insight as a songwriter, her cognitive powers slowly but surely became pronounced, leading to the independent recording and release of her debut CD, Worrisome Heart, which was reissued in 2007 by the Verve label. Her music could be described as a cross between Laura Nyro, Joni Mitchell, Eva Cassidy, and Shania Twain, but goes deeper than mere pop convention. Gardot is hypersensitive to light and noise, thus she wears dark glasses, and uses a cane to walk. On-stage she requires a special seating unit, and wears a Transcutaneous Electro-Nerve Stimulator, a TENS device, to assist in alleviating her neuralgic muscle pain. As amazing as her story is, what is more evident is that she possesses a blue style and persona that reflect not only her afflictions, but conversely the hope and joy of making personalized music that marks her as an individual and original. Though touring is difficult, she has been performing in major cities on the East Coast to support her recordings. In 2009, working with producer Larry Klein and arranger Vince Mendoza -- both known for their work with Joni Mitchell -- Gardot followed up her Verve debut with My One and Only Thrill. Gardot returned in 2012 with her third studio album, The Absence, featuring production from guitarist/composer Heitor Pereira.

Worrisome Heart

Worrisome heart

I need a hand
With my worrisome heart
I need a hand
With my worrisome heart

I would be lucky to find me a man
Who could love me the way that I am
With this here worrisome heart

I need a break
From my troubling ways
I need a break
From my troubling ways

I would be lucky to find me a man
Who could love me the way that I am
With all my troubling ways

I need a man
Who got no baggage to claim
I need a man
Who got no baggage to claim

I would be lucky to find me a man
Who could love me the way that I am
A worrisome, troubling, baggage free, modern day dame
A worrisome, troubling, baggage free, modern day dame
Ain't nobody the same

All That I Need Is Love

Boys like to think they can have it all
Well they don't know they're still so small
All that they see is live is opportunity

Guys like to think they'll get any girl
That just one look, one quick twirl
That these acts alone will buy him a way into my home

No well they don't know, no they don't know
Well all that I'm dreaming of
They don't know you know that they don't know
That all that I need is love

So much of these times have been physical
Well all the love now where'd it go
Could it be my words are all together totally absurd

All of the men I know laugh at me
They don't listen, they can't see
I'm falling apart ‘cause no one will acknowledge my heart

No, no, no, they don't know, no they don't know
All that I'm dreaming of
They don't know, you know that they don't know
That all that I need is love

So I'll take my thoughts and just walk away
Well I've said all that I can say
But I'm still dreaming of
The day that I will find my love
The day that I will find my love
The day I will find my love

Gone

I won't wake up
To the sound of your feet
Walking down the hall
Like a soft heartbeat
I won't wake up
'Cause by the time that I do you'll be gone

I won't look back
On a past so long
I won't look back
On the things gone wrong
I won't look back
'Cause by the time that I do you'll be gone

I won't have words
I've said all that there is to say
I won't have words
'Cause I know you'll just throw them away
I won't have words
'Cause by the time that I do you'll be gone
By the time that I do you'll be gone
By the time that I do you'll be gone

Sweet Memory

Sweet Memory
Talking about a sweet memory
It goes round and round in my head
Pretty soon I'll want the real thing instead
But for now I got this sweet memory

Sunny day, sunny day
Not a cloud crosses the sky
Not a tear comes to my eye
On this sunny day

Sweet Memory
Talking about a sweet memory
It goes round and round in my head
Pretty soon I'll want the real thing instead
But for now I got this sweet memory
Sweet Memory
Sweet Memory

Some Lessons

Well I'm buckled up inside
A miracle that I'm alive
I do not think I can survive
On bread and wine alone

To think that I could have fallen
A centimeter to the left
Would not be here to see the sunset
Or have myself a time

Well why do the hands of time
So easily unwind
Some lessons we learn the hard way
Some lessons don't come easy
And that's the price we have to pay
Oh well some lessons we learn the hard way
They don't come right off and right easy
That's why they say some lessons learned
We learn the hard way

Remember the sound of the pavement
World turned upside down
City streets unlined and empty
Not a soul around
Life goes away in a flash
Right before your eyes
If I think real hard well I reckon
I've had some real good times

Why do the hands of time
So easily unwind
Some lessons we learn the hard way
Some lessons don't come easy
And that's the price we have to pay
Oh well some lessons we learn the hard way
They don't come right off and right easy
That's why they say some lessons learned
We learn the hard way

Quiet Fire

I'm burning up
Burning up quiet fire
Take, take my hand
Do with it what you will
I'm in dire need

'Cause all I want is somebody to love me like I do
Oh oh oh well
All I want is somebody to love me like I do

You walk away
Nothing left to say
But bye, bye blue eyes
And I, oh you know that I
No I, I, I don't understand, no

Cause all I want is somebody to love me like I do
Oh oh oh well
All I want is somebody to love me like I do

Well you can call me half crazy
Call me certifiably nuts
All for love
What do you get for letting me win so easily
Put up your dukes baby, what are you made of
This isn't right no, this isn't right
You know that I'm not one to fuss
But what have you done to me
You hardly make love to me now
Oh my poor hearts about to bust
Right out of its seams

'Cause all I want is somebody to love me like I do
Oh oh oh well
All I want is somebody to love me like I do

Burning up
Quiet fire

One Day

One day you will be mine
The clouds will part
The sun will shine
One day you will be mine

One day you will arise
To see the stars within my eyes
One day you will be mine

One day you will be mine
The clouds will part
The sun will shine
One day you will be mine
You will be mine

Love Me Like A River Does

Love me like a river does
Cross the sea
Love me like a river does
Endlessly
Love me like a river does
Baby don't rush
You're no waterfall
Love me that is all

Love me like a roaring sea
Swirls about
Love me like a roaring sea
Wash me out
Love me like a roaring sea
Baby don't rush
You're no waterfall
Love me that is all

Love me like the earth itself
Spins around
Love me like the earth itself
Sky above below the ground
Love me like the earth itself
Baby don't rush
You're no waterfall
Love me that is all

Goodnite

Good night
Close your eyes and just
Sleep tight
I'll lie awake and watch you dream
To be sure whether all of your dreams are pure

My dear don't you worry about a thing
I'll be near to you all night
And through the evening
I'll be by your side

So good night
Close your eyes and just sleep tight
I'll lie awake and watch you dream
To be sure whether all of your dreams are pure

While you slumber in case you
Ever wonder if a summer breeze
Just brushed your cheek
Know it's me

And good night
Close your eyes and just
Sleep tight
I'll lie awake and watch you dream
To be sure whether all of your dreams are pure

Bonne nuit
Ferme tes yeux
Et juste reste ici
Je te regarde toute la nuit
Pendant toute la nuit

My One and Only Thrill

Baby I'm A Fool

How was I to know that this was always only just a little game to you
All the time I felt you gave your heart I thought that I would do the same for you
Tell the truth I think I should have seen it coming from a mile away
When the words you say are
“Baby I'm a fool who thinks it's cool to fall in love”

If I gave a thought to fascination I would know it wasn't right to care
Logic doesn't seem to mind that I am fascinated by the love affair
Still my heart would benefit from a little tenderness from time to time, but never mind
‘Cause baby I'm a fool who thinks it's cool to fall in love

Baby I should hold on just a moment and be sure it's not for vanity
Look me in the eye and tell me love is never based upon insanity
Even when my heart is beating hurry up the moment's fleeting
Kiss me now, don't ask me how
‘Cause Baby I'm a fool who thinks it's cool to fall
Baby I'm a fool who thinks it's cool to fall
And I would never tell if you became a fool and fell in love

If the stars were mine

If the stars were mine
I'd give them all to you
I'd pluck them down right from the sky
And leave it only blue
I will never let the sun forget to shine upon your face
So when others would have rain clouds you'd have only sunny days

If the stars were mine
I'd tell you what I'd do
I'd put the stars right in a jar and give them all to you

If the birds were mine
I'd tell them when to sing
I'd make them sing a sonnet when your telephone would ring
I would put them there inside the square, whenever you went out
So there'd always be sweet music whenever you walk about

If the birds were mine
I'd tell you what I'd do
I'd teach the birds such lovely words and make 'em sing for you
I'd teach the birds such lovely words and make 'em sing for you

If the world was mine
I'd paint it gold and green
I'd make the oceans orange from a brilliant colour scheme
I will color all the mountains, make the sky forever blue
So the world would be a painting and I'd live inside with you

If the world was mine
I'd tell you what I'd do
I'd wrap the world in ribbons and then give it all to you
I'd teach the birds such lovely words and make 'em sing for you
I'd put those stars right in a jar and give them all to you

Who Will Comfort Me

My soul is wearying
My soul is wearying
My soul is wearying
I said my soul is wearying

My soul is wearying
Beating down from all of my misery yeah
Oh Lord who will comfort me

Gotta hold of my heart
Keeps me bound where the whole wide world is free yeah
Oh Lord who will comfort me

My home is a wreckage a family ground
Implied in poverty yeh
Oh Lord who will comfort me

Your Heart Is As Black As Night

Your eyes may be whole
But the story I'm told
Is your heart is as black as night

Your lips may be sweet
Such that I can't compete
But your heart is as black as night

I don't know why it came along
In such a perfect time
But if I let you hang around
I'm bound to lose my mind

'Cause your hands may be strong
But the feelings's all wrong
Your heart is as black as night

I don't know why it came along
In such a perfect time
But if I let you hang around
I'm bound to lose my mind

'Cause your hands may be strong
But the feelings's all wrong
Your heart is as black
Your heart is as black
Oh your heart is as black as night

Love Undercover

I don't need anything more than I got
I'll make it simple when others may not

Whenever you need some company
Some love of a different kind
Come to your lover, undercover
And let me ease your mind

Whenever your heart beats heavy
And worry has catch you down
Come to your lover, undercover
And I will turn your mood around

Why you wanna leave when it's so easy just to stay
Lying wrapped up in my arms until the break of day
Undercover

Why you wanna leave when it's so easy just to stay
Lying wrapped up in my arms, until the break of day
So

Whenever you need a soft touch
Know my demands are small
Make me a lover, undercover
Or don't ever love me at all

Our love is easy

Deep within your heart, you know it's plain to see
Like Adam was to Eve, you were made for me
They say the poisoned vine breeds a finer wine
Our love is easy

If you ask me plainly I would gladly say
I'd like to have you round just for them rainy days
I like the touch of your hand, the way you make no demands
Our love is easy

Our love is easy
Like water rushing over stone
Oh, our love is easy, like no love I've ever known

Physically speaking we were made to last
Examine all the pieces of our recent past
There's your mouth of tears
Your hands around my waist
Our love is easy

Every time we meet it's like the first we kiss
Never growing tired of this endlessness
It's a simple thing, we don't need a ring
Our love is easy

Our love is easy
Like water rushing over stone
Oh, our love is easy, like no love I've ever known

Our love is easy
Like water rushing over stone
Oh, our love is easy, like no love I've ever known

Deep within your heart, you know it's plain to see
Like Adam was to Eve, you were made for me
They say the poisoned vine breeds a finer wine

Les étoiles

Les étoiles, les étoiles, les étoiles
Dites-moi étoile, pourquoi je vous regarde
Les étoiles, les étoiles, les étoiles
Dites-moi, étoile qui vous regardera

Les étoiles, les étoiles
Si seulement je savais
Dites-moi étoile de qui obtenez-vous la lumière
Les étoiles, les étoiles
Vous qui êtes belle dans les cieux
Dites-moi étoile, qui vous donnera l'amour

The stars, the stars shining up above
Tell me stars who will give you love
The stars, the stars lights of white and blue
Tell me stars why I look to you

The Rain

The rain
The rain
Rain came down in sheets that night
And you
And I
Stared out to the left and to the right

Rain came down in cords
Seemed to laugh at us ´til daylight

The clouds
The clouds
Clouds raised out across the autumn sky
And you
And I
Fumbled for a way to say goodbye

Strangers weren't we
Scared to look into each others eyes

My One And Only Thrill

Birds may cease to spread their wings
But it don't matter
But it don't matter
When does May envelop spring
But it don't matter
But it don't matter
‘Cause when I'm with you
My whole world stands still
You're my one and only thrill

Ships may never leave the dock
But it don't matter
But it don't matter
Ticks may never hear a tock
But it don't matter
But it don't matter
‘Cause when I'm with you
My whole world stands still
You're my one and only thrill

Shores may never reach the tide
But it don't matter
But it don't matter
Buds may never open wide
But it don't matter
But it don't matter
‘Cause when I'm with you
My whole world stands still
You're my one and only thrill
You're my
You're my
You're my one and only thrill

Deep Within The Corners Of My Mind

Deep within the corners of my mind
I keep a memory of your faces
And I only pull it out when I long for your embrace

Deep within the corners of my mind
I'm haunted by your smile
As it promises me joys like a journey to a tropic isle
It's not hard to see what you do to me
It's like a page right out of fist time wave
Though I try to fight it all the word you write
Leave me standing in the starry robe in some tragic lovers place

But deep within the corners of my mind
I'm praying secretly that eventually in time
There'll be a place for you and me

That eventually in time
There'll be a place for you and me

There'll be a place for you and me

Deep within the corners of my mind

Over The Rainbow

(music by Harold Arlen and lyrics by E.Y. Harburg)

Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high
There's a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby

Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
Away above the chimney tops that's where you'll find me

Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow,
Why then, oh, why can't I

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
Away above the chimney tops that's where you'll find me

Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow,
Why then, oh, why can't I
Why then, oh, why can't I
Why then, oh, why can't I

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh, why can't I

The Absence

Mira

The felicidad that I hold in my heart
Is a pretty good start for us two
And if in the world there were only tristesse
I would find happiness in the blues

Mira, look at what you do to me
Mira, look at all the fantasy
Mira, this is such a lovely way to be

In all that I've seen, all the love that I need
Is the love that reminds me of you
In every smile there's a trace of the joy
That I feel like a sweet morning dew
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Mira, look at what you do to me
Mira, look at all the fantasy
Mira, this is such a lovely way to be
Mira, mira, mira

Ah mira, look at what you do to me
Mira, look at all the fantasy
Mira, this is such a lovely way to be

Cada día que creo poesía
Te recuerdo, anorando momento
De encontrarte y volver a besarte
Para darte un regalo perfecto

Aye delirio de sentirte en mis brazos
Recreando los momentos pasados
En el cuarto de un hôtel estrellado
Donde fuimos, un regalo divino

Un regalo divino, un regalo divino
Un regalo divino, un regalo divino
Un regalo divino, un regalo divino
Un regalo divino, un regalo divino

Mira, mira, mira voce

Amalia

Well, when you wake in the morning
Little eyes open wide
When there's no tender warning
No surprises, no surprise

Well maybe your wing might be broken
Maybe you're learning to fly
Well so am I

Amalia, finding the way out on the open road
Amalia, going whichever way the wind gonna go
Amalia, taking her chances on the open sea
Amalia, hoping the breeze is gonna carry me
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Maybe fate, maybe reason
Made you fall from the sky
Like the tides, like the seasons
Ever changing, you and I

So where do you go
When worry takes you
Where do you go
When somebody makes you cry

Amalia, finding the way out on the open road
Amalia, going whichever way the wind gonna go
Amalia, taking her chances on the open sea
Amalia, funny little bird hanging out with me
Oh, such a funny little bird hanging out with me

So Long

Don't wait up for me darling
I'm not coming home
Draw the blinds and set the alarm
'Cause I'm not coming home

In the morning you'll arise
With sadness in your eyes
'Cause I'll be gone
I'm moving on
Goodbye, so long

Every flower has faded to dust
I'm not coming home
Tears may fall
Your lashes may rust
But I'm not coming home
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Forever is on my mind
And I've just got to find
A place I belong
One I have known
Goodbye, so long

So long
So long
So long
So long

Every hour is drawn to a close
I'm not coming home
Wave goodbye so everyone knows
I'm not coming home
Goodbye, so long
So long

So We Meet Again My Heartache

So we meet again my heartache
So we meet again my friend
I should have known that you'd return
The moment I was on the mend

So we meet again my heartache
Like two lovers torn apart
Bound together by the breaking
Of a tired and torrid heart

So we meet again my heartache
Just as leaves begin to change
How you've made my life a story
Filled with words you rearrange
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
So we meet again my heartache
Come and join me in my pain
You're the reason I remember
Every sweet and sad refrain

So we meet again my heartache
Come and sit with me a while
Rest your head upon my shoulder
Hide your face beneath my smile

So we meet again my heartache
Over glass of stale red wine
I hope you'll join me in my toast, my ghoulish host
And maybe stay a while this time

Lisboa

Lisboa, aye Lisboa
The sorrows of your days gone by
Now the hinterland of lovers should lay
Beneath all your vacant skies

Lisboa, Lisboa
From Alfama's arms to Liberdade
Paper lanterns, falling embers
And quiet cantors sing of saudade
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
The ever twilight amber of your alleyways
Paint the air of evening oh so well
And strolls about the riverbank
Suggest there's history left to tell
Aye Lisboa

A paradise beside the sea
There's a beauty
To the absence of tainting all your scenery

Lisboa é Luz boa
Lisboa é Pessoa
Lisboa tem Chiado
Tem Alfama e Tem Fado
Da era Severa
D'um tempo que ja era
Nas ruas de Lisboa
Eu vou
Das tuas colinas
Milagres e sinas
Nas praças rainhas
Flores e Rimas
Eu vou
Lisboa
L-i-s-b-o-a

Portuguese Translation :

Lisbon is good Luz
Lisbon is Pessoa
Lisbon has Chiado
It has Alfama and Fado
From the era of Severa
From a time that is gone
In the streets of Lisbon
I'll go
From its hills
Miracles and fate
In the Queen's squares
Flowers and rhymes
I'll go
Lisbon
L-i-s-b-o-n

Notes:
Pessoa: Fernando Pessoa, a Portuguese poet and writer
Chiado, Alfama: districts of Lisbon
Fado: Portuguese traditional music
Severa: Traditional restaurant called "A Severa", known for fado performances

Impossible Love

This is an impossible love
The kind you only hear of in cinematic dreams
This is an impossible love
With syndromatic schemes
It's never just as lovely as it seems

Yes this is an impossible love
The flame in lust is inexhaustible love
And flames combust, we flames would be hand in glove
And why should two loves not agree, no
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
This is an impossible love
Though both of your arms would offer a tender caress
It's such an exhaustible love
Fueling my heart with only illusion at best

C'est un jeu d'echecs
Aux gens que tu crois
Un jeu des fléchettes
Un mouvement dans l'obscurité
Vide de vérité
C'est une ligne qu'on ne peut pas voir
Un dessin dans l'air détruit mes espoirs
Un jeu de garçons
Auquel décidément, non, je dis non

Tes mains sur mes collants
Et tes yeux comme des enfants
Ta voix comme un orage d'été
Nos ténèbres, silhouettes
Adieu, sans regret

Tes mains sur mes collants
Et tes yeux comme des enfants
Ta voix comme un orage d'été
Nos ténèbres, silhouettes
Adieu, sans regret

This is an impossible love
This is an impossible love
This is an impossible love
This is an impossible love

If I Tell You I Love You I'm Lying

There are so many things I could say, my love
Make you trip, so your lips would be mine
There are so many things I could do, my love
To convince you my love is divine

There are so many words I could tell you
There are so many moments in time
But I say 'fore we go to the land down below
If I tell you I love you, I'm lying

There are so many places to go, my love
There are so many places to find
There are so many worlds to explore, my love
There are so many stars yet to shine
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
There are so many secrets to tell you
There are so many men on the line
But I say 'fore we go to the land down below
If I tell you I love you, I'm lying

I may be short of reason
To call you up next time
So if you like your women sweet, ah
Consider me your wine

I may be one for weekends to call you when you're flying
But if I ever utter I love you, honey I am lying
And if I look into your eyes and tell you "honey I am lying"
And if I ever whisper words unheard, such sultry words
Oh, je t'aime
Oh oui, je t'aime
Darling, I am lying

Goodbye

Goodnight was just a little word you learned
Somewhere somebody that you burned
Was all too happy with a lie

But love, you know you never got it right
I don't know why you say goodnight
You only mean to say goodbye

And I know you're quick to show your lover to the door
And you ain't never been in love before
You're only bound to get it wrong
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
And I know you're just a victim of your circumstance
Of never knowing any real romance
And so we ought to say so long, goodbye
So long Goodbye

I know you're only trying to ease my mind
But I'm gonna lay it on the line, this time
You only need to say goodbye

Now Lord, you know you never got it right
I don't know why you say goodnight
You only mean to say goodbye
You only mean to say goodbye
You only mean to say goodbye
You only mean to say goodbye

Se Voce Me Ama

Sem você
Não há vida pra viver
Sem você
Não há vida pra viver, não há

Amor

Se você me ama, por que não me chamas
Não te escondas no silêncio de uma muda flor
Nessa tarde que a lua, já se mostra tão nua
Mar e vento, meu tormento, minha solidão
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
Sob a lua
Esta luz que é tão sua
Céu aberto acima é tao deserto
Dois amantes naufragados, nesse mar de amor

Tanto amor
Pra ganhar carinho
(Pra ganhar seu carinho)
Sou seu passarinho
(Sou seu passarinho)
Vou voando bem baixinho, canto pra você

Se você me ama
Por que não me chamas
No meu ninho aqui sozinho canto sem você

Encantada
Miragem de um nada (de um nada)
Meu deserto a céu aberto aberto pra voar
Mais que nada
"Sayonara" meu amor

Sem você x2
Não há vida vida pra viver, não há
Não há vida

Without you
There is no life to live
Without you
There is no life to live, there is no

Love

If you love me, why don't you call me
Do not hide in the silence of a silent flower
In this afternoon which the moon already shows itself so naked
Sea and wind, my torment, my loneliness

Under the moon
This light that is so yours
Open sky from above is so deserted
Two wrecked lovers in this sea of love

So much love
To get caress
(To get your caress)
I'm your bird
(I'm your bird)
I'll be flying not too high, sing to you

If you love me
Why don't you call me
Here in my nest I sing alone without you

Enchanted
A mirage of nothing (of nothing)
My open sky desert, open to fly
More than anything
"Sayonara", my love

Without you x2
There is no life, life to live, there is no
There is no life

My Heart Won't Have It Any Other Way

You might be a lover
Always gone astray
But my heart
Won't have it any other way

And maybe I deserve this
Longing every day
'Cause my heart
Won't have it any other way
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
If happiness is evidence
That fate is everywhere
Then why should I deny my chances
Of saying I don't care

Now reason don't remind me
Love ain't bound to stay
'Cause my heart
Won't have it any other way
No my heart
Won't have it any other way

Iemanja

White lady gone to the Southern sea
Why do you appear so suddenly
We want to honor your vanity
With little bitty boats set out on the sea
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
E Iemanja
E Iemanja
E Iemanja

I dream of days spent in Salvador
With my little darling forever more
Taking a walk along the shore
Feels like heaven's an open door

E Iemanja
E Iemanja

If I were to offer a plain perfume
And I were to honor the shining moon
As she sits so lonely upon the dune
Madre D'agna see you soon

E na Bahia Iemanja
E Baiana Iemanja...

I wanted to stay I gotta go but I'm coming back one day
I wanted to stay I gotta go but I'm coming back one day
I wanted to stay I gotta go but I'm coming back one day

And I'm so tired of seeing
Every good man gone

'Cause I believe in a world
Where we all belong
And I'm so tired of seeing
Every good man gone

If Ever I Recall Your Face

Forget alll that's said and done
When your heart's a lonely one
And see my dear that heaven is a place
Whenever I recall your face

Life can be so lucky now
Some may win and others don't know how
But I could drop my losing hand with grace
Whenever I recall your face
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
While leaving town you leave behind
The ones you love for who you find
But love no other arms could take your place
Whenever I recall your face

In the oceans of your eyes
Lies a look I recognise
A glance that leaves me dancing polonaise
Whenever I recall your
If ever I recall your face

Once I was loved

I don't remember when I was young
I don't recall the day when I first saw the sun
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
But what I am certain
What is enough
Is just to remember that once
Once I was loved

I still surrender to troubles unknown
No use pretending
All the troubles ain't my own

But what I am certain
What is enough
Is just to remember that once
Once I was loved

After the years gone by
What amounts to the years in a life
What have we come to
When we reach our final days

If we can surrender
Then that is enough
Just to remember that once
Once we were loved
Once we were beautiful
Once we were loved

If we can surrender
Then that is enough
Just to remember that once
Once we were loved

Burying my Troubles

Burying my troubles
In another glass of wine
Swallowing my worries away
Bear in mind tomorrow
Is another day of sorrow
That only makes me think of yesterday
Rob from always on the run dot net is so bad and copy paste is a sin
So I'm burying my troubles
In another cup of gin
Throwing down like water on the road
Running over memories
Falling down upon my knees
And begging him to lift this heavy load

Still I know
I will find my happiness at last
Somewhere in the bottom of a bottle
Or a stone cut glass

Sleeping through the hours
Of a sunny summer day
Hiding from the brightest shades of light
Burying my eyes
Breathing deep and heavy sighs
For all the things in life that ain't gone right

Still I know
I will find my happiness at last
Somewhere in the bottom of a bottle
Of a stone cut glass

Still I know
I will find my happiness at last
Somewhere in the bottom of a bottle
Of a stone cut glass

Ain't no sunshine

( Bill Withers Cover / Live )

Ain't no sunshine when he's gone
It's not warm when he's away
Ain't no sunshine when he's gone
And he's always gone too long
Any time he goes away

Wonder this time where he's gone
Wonder if he's gone to stay
Ain't no sunshine when he's gone
And this house just ain't no home
Anytime he goes away

And I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know

Lord you better leave that thing alone
But ain't no sunshine, no oh, when he's gone

And I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know

Lord you better leave that thing alone
Still ain't no sunshine, oh, when he's gone
Ain't no sunshine when he's gone
Ain't no sunshine when he's gone
Ain't no sunshine
Ain't no sunshine when he's gone

Bye Bye Blackbird

( Henderson-Dixson / Bye Bye Blackbird EP )

Pack up all my care and woe
Here I go, feeling low
Bye bye blackbird

Where somebody waits for me
Sugar's sweet, so is he
Bye bye blackbird

No one seems to love or understand me
Oh the hard luck stories they just hand to me
Make my bed and light the light
I'll be coming home tonight
Bye bye blackbird

No one seems to love or understand me
Oh the hard luck stories they just hand to me
Where somebody shine the light
I'll be coming home tonight
Bye bye blackbird
Blackbird, bye bye

Caravan

( Duke Ellington Cover / live )

Night and stars above that shine so bright
The mystery of their fading light
That shines upon our caravan

Oh sleep upon my shoulder as we creep
Across the sands so I may keep
The memory of our caravan

This is so exciting
You are so inviting
Resting in my arms
As we thrill to the magic charms

So you beside me here beneath the blue
I dream of love is coming true
Inside a desert caravan

This is so exciting
You are so inviting
Resting in my arms
As we thrill to the magic charms

Oh you, and you and you and you
Beside me here beneath the blue
I dream of love is coming true
Inside a desert caravan
A caravan, a caravan, a caravan

Down My Avenue

( Some Lessons -The Bedroom Sessions EP )

Dans les rues
Dans les rues
Dans les rues
Dans les rues

Dans les rues
Dans les rues
Dans, dans, dans les rues

Down my avenue
The sun don't shine on the street
Down my avenue
All the people walking drag their feet
Down my avenue
Everyone you meet is full of gloom
And the shade on their face
Is one of unpending doom

Let me tell you now
You don't know what it's like unless you live here
You don't know what it's like unless you live here
All I wanna do is just to scream and shout into their ears
Hey people why do you think it's all right to go and hurt me

Down my avenue
Everybody tells you how it is
Things like he ran to her house and she snuck on back into his
Down my avenue
Everybody 's got a story to tell
But the fact of the matter is nobody knows it too well

Let me tell you now
You don't know what it's like unless you live here
You don't know what it's like unless you live here
All I wanna do is just to scream and shout into their ears
Hey people why do you think it's all right to go and hurt me

Why, why

Dans les rues, dans les rues
Dans les rues, dans les rues
Dans les rues, dans les rues
Dans les rues, dans les rues

Let me tell you know
You don't know what it's like unless you live here
You don't know what it's like unless you live here
All I wanna do is just to scream and shout into their ears
Hey people why do you think it's all right to go and

Why do you think it's all right
Why do you think it's all right
Why do you think it's all right
To go and hurt me

Get Out Of Town

( Cole Porter Cover / Bye Bye Blackbird EP )

Get out of town
Before it's too late my love
Get out of town
Be good to me please

Why wish me harm
Why not retire to a farm
And be contented to charm
The birds off the trees

Just disappear
I care for you much too much
And when you're near, close to me dear
We touch too much

The thrill when we meet is so bittersweet
That darling, it's getting me down
So on your mark get set
Get out of town

Just disappear
I care for you much too much
And when you're near, close to me dear
We touch too much

The thrill when we meet is so bittersweet
That darling, it's getting me down
So on your mark get set
Get out of town

Hard Times

( Ray Charles Cover / Live )

My mother told me
'Fore she passed away
Said darling when I'm gone
Don't forget to pray

'Cause there'll be hard times
Hard times
Who knows better than I

Well I soon found out
Just what she meant
I had to sell all my clothes
Just to pay the rent

Talkin' 'bout hard times
Hard times
Who knows better than I

I had a man
Who was always around
When I lost my money
He put me down

Talkin' 'bout hard times
Hard times
Who knows better than I

Lord, one of these days
There'll be no more sorrow
'Cause I pass away

There'll be no more hard times
Hard times
Who knows, baby
And who knows better than I

If I'm Lucky

( Eddie Delange/Joseph Myrow - Charlie Haden Sophisticated Ladies LP)

If I'm lucky
You will tell me that you care
That we'll never be apart
If I'm lucky
This will be no light affair
It's forever, from the start

If I'm lucky
There'll be moonbeams all around
Shining bright as day
You will hold my hand
And you'll understand
All I cannot seem to say

If I am lucky
There will be a time and place
You will kiss me
We'll embrace
In that moment
Every wishful dream I ever knew
Will come true

If I'm lucky
I will go through the years with you

If I'm lucky
You will tell me that you care
That we'll never be apart
If I'm lucky
This will be no light affair
It's forever, from the start

If I'm lucky
There'll be moonbeams all around
Shining bright as day
You will hold my hand
And you'll understand
All I cannot seem to say

If I am lucky
There will be a time and place
You will kiss me
We'll embrace
In that moment
Every wishful dream I ever knew
Will come true

If I'm lucky
I will go through the years with you
I will go through the years with you

La Vie En Rose

( Edith Piaf Cover / The Absence Deluxe ed. )

Des yeux qui font baisser les miens
Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche
Voilà le portrait sans retouche
De l'homme auquel j'appartiens

Et quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas
Je vois la vie en rose

Il me dit des mots d'amour
Des mots de tous les jours
Et ça me fait quelque chose

Il est entré dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause

C'est lui pour moi
Moi pour lui dans la vie
Il me l'a dit, l'a juré pour la vie

Et dès que je l'aperçois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat

Quand il me prend dans ses bras
Il me parle tout bas
Je vois la vie en rose

Il me dit des mots d'amour
Des mots de tous les jours
Ca me fait quelque chose

Il est entré dans mon coeur
Une part de bonheur
Dont je connais la cause

C'est lui pour moi
Moi pour lui dans la vie
Il me l'a dit, l'a juré pour la vie

Et dès que je l'aperçois
Alors je sens en moi
Mon coeur qui bat
Mon coeur qui bat

Momma

( Some Lessons -The Bedroom Sessions EP )

Momma it's driving me insane
To see you in such an awful pain
You know that I'll do anything I can
Just to make you smile all over again

Momma, what's been going on
You've been way to down,
For way too long
I said Momma
Did I go and do something wrong
Momma, what's going on

Momma you can take your time
Momma that will be just fine
But you know I'd listen up to every word
Come on, Momma now
Don't you be absurd

Momma, what's been going on
You've been way to down
For way too long
I said Momma
Did I go and do something wrong
Momma what's going on

Momma, I know you're feeling blue
I see the way he talks to you
His words, they cut like a knife
And Momma I know you're feeling bad
I see the way he miss you sad
I wish that I could change our lives
But I figure it out
You got to start it all over now

Momma, what's been going on
You've been way to down
For way too long
I said Momma
Did I go and do something wrong
Momma what's going on
Momma what's going on
Momma what's going on

Smile

( Nat King Cole Cover / Live )

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through
If you just light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use in crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

Someday My Prince Will Come

( Larry Morey & Frank Churchil / Bye Bye Blackbird EP )

Someday my prince will come
Some day we'll meet again
And away to his castle we'll go
To be happy forever I know

Someday when spring is here
We'll find our love anew
And the birds will sing
And wedding bells will ring
For some day when my dreams come true
When my prince becomes you

Someday when spring is here
We'll find our love anew
And the birds will sing
And wedding bells will ring
For some day, oh some day
Someday when my dreams come true

Summertime

( George Gershwin / Bye Bye Blackbird EP )

Summertime
And the livin' is easy
Fish are jumpin'
And the cotton is high

Your daddy's rich, really rich
And your mamma is good lookin'
So go and hush little baby
There ain't no need to cry

One of these mornings
You're gonna rise up singing
Spread your wings
And take to the sky

Till that day
There's ain't nothing that can harm you
With your daddy and mommy standing by

Wicked Ride

( Some Lessons - The Bedroom Sessions EP )

There comes a time in every little girl's life
When her momma says, girl, do your best
'Cause one day you may come to find
That all of your life has been a wicked ride

There comes a time in every young woman's life
When all of the men though they come and again
It's hardly enough to survive
And she starts to think life is a wicked ride

There comes a time in every old woman's life
When she takes a look in her picture book
And then she begins to realize
That all of her life has been a wicked ride
All of her life, all of her life
All of her life has been a wicked ride
