Pedido da professora Liane Engel Steffens, que quer praticar esta música com seus alunos. A escolha dela foi Hey Brother, do DJ Avicii:

LETRA

Hey, brother, there’s an endless road to re-discover

Hey, sister, know the water’s sweet but blood is thicker

Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you

There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do

 

Hey, brother, do you still believe in one another?

Hey sister, do you still believe in love? I wonder

Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you

There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do

 

What if I’m far from home?

Oh, brother, I will hear you call

What if I lose it all?

Oh, sister, I will help you out

Oh, if the sky comes falling down, for you

There’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t do

LETRA

There’s a song that is inside of my soul

It’s the one that I’ve tried to write over and over again

I’ll wake in the infinite cold

But you sing to me over and over and over again

 

So I lay my head back down

And I lift my hands and pray

To be only yours I pray

To be only yours I know now

You’re my only hope

 

Sing to me the song of the stars

Of your galaxy dancing and laughing and laughing again

When it feels like my dreams are so far

Sing to me all the plans that you have for me over again

 

So I lay my head back down

And I lift my hands and pray

To be only yours I pray

To be only yours I know now

You’re my only hope

 

I give you my destiny

Im giving you all of me

I want your symphony

Singing in all that I am

At the top of my lungs

I’m giving him all I have

 

So I lay my head back down

And I lift my hands and pray

To be only yours I pray

To be only yours I pray

To be only yours I know now

You’re my only hope

Don’t let the sun go down on me – Elton John


Clique no nome da música para ver o post completo

A música de hoje é pedido da Madalena Sparks, que conheceu o blog recentemente e gostou dele bastante. Ela havia pedido a versão com a Shania Twain, porém como não encontrei a versão letrada desta, estou publicando apenas com o Elton John. A música é Don’t let the sun go down on me:

LETRA

I can’t light no more of your darkness

All my pictures seem to fade to black and white

I’m growing tired and time stands still before me

Frozen here on the ladder of my life

 

Too late to save myself from falling

I took a chance and changed your way of life

But you misread my meaning when I met you

Closed the door and left me blinded by the light

 

Don’t let the sun go down on me

Although I search myself, it’s always someone else I see

I’d just allow a fragment of your life to wander free

But losing everything is like the sun going down on me

Eight letters – Take That


Clique no nome da música para ver o post completo

Esta música foi um dos sucessos da rádio Antena 1 em 2013. O grupo que canta, Take That, não é tão conhecido, porém é uma bela música. O nome é Eight letters:

LETRA

We became the parade on the streets that we once cleaned

Expendable soldiers smiling at anything

Raised on a feeling our lives would have meaning eventually

 

We were once the answer and then you discover

You’re actually just one thing after another

And what was the question and why was the lesson so deafening?

 

This is all that matters now

And that was all that happened anyhow

You can look back but don’t stare

Maybe I can love you out of there

 

And when I went away what I forgot to say

Was all I had to say:

Eight letters, three words, one meaning

 

And outside forces didn’t make it easy

So I thought i’d go before you leave me

Self-preservation was no explanation for anything

 

But the truth is more than we’ll ever comprehend

I’m just starting to understand, my friend

All of that distance, ’cause I fell in love with the enemy

 

This is all that matters now

And that was all that happened anyhow

You can look back but don’t stare

Maybe I can love you out of there

Holiday – Green Day


Clique no nome da música para ver o post completo

Esta música eu dedico ao meu cunhado André, que já publicou algumas músicas por aqui. Ele sugeriu que eu publicasse a música Holiday, do Green Day, e aqui ela está:

LETRA

Hear the sound of the falling rain

Coming down like an Armageddon flame (hey!)

The shame

The ones who died without a name

 

Hear the dogs howling out of key

To a hymn called “Faith and Misery” (hey!)

And bleed, the company lost the war today

 

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies

This is the dawning of the rest of our lives

On Holiday

 

Hear the drum pounding out of time

Another protestor has crossed the line (hey!)

To find, the money’s on the other side

 

Can I get another amen? (amen!)

There’s a flag wrapped around a score of men (hey!)

A gag, a plastic bag on a monument

 

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies

This is the dawning of the rest of our lives

On Holiday

 

(Hey!)

 

“The representative from California has the floor”

 

Zieg heil to the president Gasman

Bombs away is your punishment

Pulverize the Eiffel towers

Who criticize your government

Bang bang goes the broken glass

Kill all the fags that don’t agree

Trials by fire, setting fire

Is not a way that’s meant for me

Just cause (hey, hey) just cause, because we’re outlaws, yeah!

 

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies

This is the dawning of the rest of our lives

I beg to dream and differ from the hollow lies

This is the dawning of the rest of our lives

 

This is our lives on Holiday

Like the legend of the phoenix

All ends with beginnings

What keeps the planet spinning

The force from the beginning

 

We’ve come too far

To give up who we are

So let’s raise the bar

And our cups to the stars

She’s up all night ’til the sun

I’m up all night to get some

She’s up all night for good fun

I’m up all night to get lucky

We’re up all night ’til the sun

We’re up all night to get some

We’re up all night for good fun

We’re up all night to get lucky

 

We’re up all night to get lucky

We’re up all night to get lucky

We’re up all night to get lucky

We’re up all night to get lucky

 

The present has no limit

Your gift keeps on giving

What is this I’m feeling?

If you wanna leave, I’m with it

 

We’ve come too far

To give up who we are

So let’s raise the bar

And our cups to the stars

She’s up all night ’til the sun

I’m up all night to get some

She’s up all night for good fun

I’m up all night to get lucky

We’re up all night ’til the sun

We’re up all night to get some

We’re up all night for good fun

We’re up all night to get lucky

 

We’re up all night to get lucky

We’re up all night to get lucky

We’re up all night to get lucky

We’re up all night to get lucky

 

We’ve come too far

To give up who we are

So let’s raise the bar

And our cups to the stars

She’s up all night ’til the sun

I’m up all night to get some

She’s up all night for good fun

I’m up all night to get lucky

We’re up all night ’til the sun

Across the lines – Tracy Chapman


Clique no nome da música para ver o post completo

A música de hoje foi um pedido da Vera Dantas, por e-mail. O nome da música é Across the lines, e fala sobre discriminação em décadas anteriores nos EUA:

LETRA

Across the lines

Who would dare to go

Under the bridge

Over the tracks

That separates whites from blacks

 

Choose sides

Or run for your life

Tonight the riots begin

On the back streets of america

They kill the dream of america

 

Little black girl gets assaulted

Ain’t no reason why

Newspaper prints the story

And racist tempers fly

Next day it starts a riot

Knives and guns are drawn

Two black boys get killed

One white boy goes blind
