Sia – Chandelier

[lyrics][Verse 1]
Party girls don’t get hurt
Can’t feel anything, when will I learn
I push it down, push it down
I’m the one « for a good time call »
Phone’s blowin’ up, ringin’ my doorbell
I feel the love, feel the love

[Pre-Chorus]
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
Throw em back, till I lose count

[Chorus]
I’m gonna swing from the chandelier,
From the chandelier
I’m gonna live like tomorrow doesn’t exist
Like it doesn’t exist
I’m gonna fly like a bird through the night,
Feel my tears as they dry
I’m gonna swing from the chandelier,
From the chandelier

[Post-Chorus]
And I’m holding on for dear life,
Won’t look down won’t open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light,
‘Cause I’m just holding on for tonight
Help me, I’m holding on for dear life,
Won’t look down won’t open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light,
‘Cause I’m just holding on for tonight, on for tonight

[Verse 2]
Sun is up, I’m a mess
Gotta get out now, gotta run from this
Here comes the shame, here comes the shame

[Pre-Chorus]
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
1,2,3 1,2,3 drink
Throw em back till I lose count

[Chorus]
I’m gonna swing from the chandelier,
From the chandelier
I’m gonna live like tomorrow doesn’t exist
Like it doesn’t exist
I’m gonna fly like a bird through the night,
Feel my tears as they dry
I’m gonna swing from the chandelier,
From the chandelier

[Post-Chorus]
And I’m holding on for dear life,
Won’t look down won’t open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light,
‘Cause I’m just holding on for tonight
Help me, I’m holding on for dear life,
Won’t look down won’t open my eyes
Keep my glass full until morning light,
‘Cause I’m just holding on for tonight, on for tonight

[Outro]
On for tonight
‘Cause I’m just holding on for tonight
Oh I’m just holding on for tonight
On for tonight
On for tonight
‘Cause I’m just holding on for tonight
‘Cause I’m just holding on for tonight
Oh I’m just holding on for tonight
On for tonight
On for tonight[/lyrics]

Ellie Goulding – Burn

[lyrics]We, we don’t have to worry ’bout nothing
‘Cause we got the fire, and we’re burning one hell of a something
They, they gonna see us from outer space, outer space
Light it up, like we’re the stars of the human race, human race

When the light started out they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

We don’t wanna leave, no. We just wanna be right now (right), r-r-right now
And what we see is everybody’s on the floor acting crazy, getting loco ’til the lights out
Music’s on, I’m waking up, we fight the fire, then we burn it up
And it’s over now, we got the love, there’s no sleeping now, no sleeping now, no sleeping

When the light started out they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

When the light started out they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world

We gonna let it burn burn burn burn (burn burn)
Burn burn burn burn (burn burn)

We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out
We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out
We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out
We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

When the light started out they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

When the light started out they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn[/lyrics]

The Bangles – Eternal Flame

[lyrics]Close your eyes, give me your hand, darlin’
Do you feel my heart beating
Do you understand
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming
Is this burning an eternal flame

I believe it’s meant to be, darlin’
I watch you when you are sleeping
You belong with me
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming
Or is this burning an eternal flame

Say my name
Sun shines through the rain
A whole life so lonely
And then come and ease the pain
I don’t want to lose this feeling, oh

Say my name
Sun shines through the rain
A whole life so lonely
And then come and ease the pain
I don’t want to lose this feeling, oh

Close your eyes, give me your hand
Do you feel my heart beating
Do you understand
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming
Or is this burning an eternal flame

Close your eyes, give me your hand, darlin’
Do you feel my heart beating
Do you understand
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming
Is this burning an eternal flame

Close your eyes, give me your hand, darlin’
Do you feel my heart beating
Do you understand
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming, ah
An eternal flame

Close your eyes, give me your hand, darlin’
Do you feel my heart beating
Do you understand
Do you feel the same
Am I only dreaming, ah
Is this burning an eternal flame

Close your eyes, give me your hand, darlin'[/lyrics]

Bruce Hornsby & the Range – The Way It Is

Ce géant de la musique du sud nous emporte dans sa jeunesse où le racisme et les droits civils sont débattus à coups de poings dans les cours d’école et où la rumeur d’une liberté à conquérir pour les noirs se fait sentir surtout dans la musique. Bruce avait été éduqué à la libérale, donc croyait en l’égalité de tous…
[lyrics]Standing in line marking time
Waiting for the welfare dime
‘Cause they can’t buy a job
The man in the silk suit hurries by
As he catches the poor ladies’ eyes
Just for fun he says, « Get a job »

That’s just the way it is
Some things will never change
That’s just the way it is
Ah but don’t you believe them

Said, hey little boy you can’t go where the others go
‘Cause you don’t look like they do
Said, hey old man how can you stand
To think that way, did you really think about it
Before you made the rules?

He said, « Son, that’s just the way it is
Some things will never change
That’s just the way it is
Ah but don’t you believe them »

That’s just the way it is
That’s just the way it is

Well they passed a law in ’64
To give those who ain’t got a little more
But it only goes so far
Because the law don’t change another’s mind
When all it sees at the hiring time
Is the line on the color bar, no, no, no

That’s just the way it is
Some things will never change
That’s just the way it is
That’s just the way it is, it is, it is, it it[/lyrics]

Stevie Nicks – Talk to Me

Probablement la chanson qui demanda le plus d’énergie à Stevie Nicks, qui lui pris une éternité à écrire parce que trop émotive. Parce que c’est difficile de mettre les mots sur une situation lorsqu’on a besoin de parler et que personne ne nous écoute…
[lyrics]I can see
We’re thinkin’ ’bout the same things
Yes, I see
Your expression when the phone rings
We both know
There’s something happening here

There’s no sense
In dancing ’round the subject
A wound gets worse
When it’s treated with neglect
Well, don’t turn now
There’s nothing here to fear

You can talk to me
Talk to me
You can talk to me
You can set your secrets free, baby

Dusty words
Lying under carpets
Seldom heard
Well, must you keep your secrets
Locked inside
Hidden deep from view

Do I seem all that hard
Is it all that tough
Well, I’ve searched
Through all my cards
Well, isn’t that enough
You can hide your hurt
But there’s something you can do

You can talk to me
You can talk to me
When you’re down now
You can talk to me
T-t-talk to me

Though we lay face to face
And cheek to cheek
Our voices stray
From common ground where they could meet
The walls run high
To veil a swelling tear
(Tear, tear, tear)[/lyrics]

Louise Attaque – Tu dis rien

la rage du silence de l’être cher qui vient de s’etteindre.

[lyrics]Tu penses quoi toi
Tu dis rien

En une heure, de tes bras souffler la colère du monde
Voyager être là sauver chacune des secondes
Et protéger du froid les idées sans confondre
Tu vois je rêve encore, penser plus vite que mon ombre

Vois-tu je serais roi, jusqu’à celui de ce monde
Te souviens-tu de moi, jusqu’au son de ma voix
Suis je aussi maladroit et tristesse à la fois
Tu vois je rêve encore marcher plus vite que mes pas

Mais toi tu penses quoi
Tu dis rien

Soulager de te doigts douleur et poussière mon ange
Au voleur de ta voix plier chacune des phalanges
Me suggèrer comme ça des yeux du bout des doigts
Tu vois je rêve encore penser plus vite je peux pas

Mais toi tu dis rien, tu oublies
Tu penses à rien, tu souris ?
Mais Qu’est ce qu’on est bien, on oublie
On traverse le haut, nos bas s’épousent sans lieu sombre

Mais toi tu penses quoi
Tu dis rien

Je veux bien m’arrêter si tu veux danser
Moi je veux bien tout quitter si tu veux bien t’approcher
Moi je veux bien m’arrêter si tu veux danser
Moi je veux bien tout quitter si tu veux bien t’approcher

Mais toi tu penses quoi
Tu dis rien

Mais toi tu dis rien, tu oublies
Tu penses à rien, tu souris ?
Qu’est ce qu’on est bien, on oublie
On traverse le haut, nos bas s’épousent sans lieu sombre

Et toi tu penses quoi
Tu dis rien[/lyrics]

Stevie Nicks – Stand Back

Peu de temps après s’être marriée, Stevie écrit cette chanson après s’être arrêtée pour écouter une nouvelle chanson de Prince qu’elle appréciait mais pas son conjoint… les divergences dans un couple sont importantes, mais il faut savoir se détacher des différences pour voir ce qu’on peut faire ensemble.
[lyrics]No one looked
I walked by
Just an invitation would have been just fine
Said no to him again and again
First he took my heart then he ran

No one knows how I feel
What I say unless you read between my lines
One man walked away from me
First he took my hand
Take me home

(Stand back, stand back)
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It’s alright, it’s alright
To be standing in a line
(Standing in a line)
To be standing in a line
I would cry

La, la, la-la, la, la, laaa, la-la
La, laaaa
La, la, la-la, laaaaa

Do not turn away my friend
Like a willow I can bend
No man calls my name
No man came

So I walked on down away from you
Maybe your attention was more
Than you could do
But one man did not call
He asked me for my love
And that was all

(Stand back, stand back)
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It’s alright, it’s alright
To be standing in a line
(Standing in a line)
To be standing in a line
I would cry

La, la, la-la, la, la, laaa, la-la
La, laaaa
La, la, la-la, la, la, laaaaa
Too few, too few
Laaaaa
La, la, la-la, la, la, laaa, la-la
La, la, laaaa
La, la, la-la, laaaaaa

So I walked, walked down the line
Away from you
Maybe your attention was more
Than I could do
One man did not fall
Well, he asked me for my love
That was all

(Stand back, stand back)
In the middle of my room
I did not hear from you
It’s alright, it’s alright
To be standing in a line
(Standing in a line)
To be standing in a line
I could cry
I need a little sympathy
Well, I need a little sympathy
Well, I need to be standing in
(Stand back)
Well, I need to be standing in
(Stand back)
Well, I need to be standing in
(Stand back)
Take me home
Take me home
(Stand back)
Don’t you take me home
Well, I need a little sympathy
(Stand back)…[/lyrics]
