Your strength

La tua forza est il mare, libero, senza catene
Your strength is like the sea, free without a chain.

If any one knows Italian, feel free to translate the rest of the song here! One of my favorites by Andrea Bocelli, its the only lyric I understand of it.

Growing up

Growing up requires from us our dreams. Dreams have to desappear, they get in the way of life.
-Sallie Tisdale, Vogue July 2010

I'm not sure what I think of this quote...

More Sarah Brightman songs

So romantic this one! Found the lyrics on this website: http://josvg.home.xs4all.nl/cits/sb/sb4-eng.html


What are you doing this evening?
Stay a little longer
it must be this place
but don't say "no"

I will invent something
to hold you prisoner
what a need there was
to love you a little so quickly
 
Today's a crazy day
but the moon is my friend
if you still have a dream to throw away
us alone in the centre of a city
Just friends and then who knows?

But it's never enough
so many things to tell each other
and kiss, understand one another, hold one another
but it's never enough
and it's late, but so what?
where are you hurrying to at this hour?
 
Just show me how to love you
I will never leave you again
I, a seagull on the rocks,
will be like a fairy-tale, and you?
Just show me how to love you
 
Hunger or fever or whatever
I feel at home
inside this dream to throw away
it doesn't seem true but
seems another city

And it's never enough
so many things to tell each other
and kiss, understand one another, hold one another
and it's never enough
it's already late, but so what?
where are you going to this hour?
 
Just show me how to love you
and we'll laugh about it
like a seagull on the rocks
but where were you hiding?
where were you until now?

What are you doing this evening?
We'll laugh about it
perhaps another evening
it's already morning
the moon is sent away by you!

Tu Quieres Volver

Both Sarah Brightman and the Gypsy Kings do a great version of this song.

Here are the lyrics, which I've translated:

Now, you make me loose reason
Don't tell me anything, the two of us will always

We know
that night
and on the streets
the same will be

You want to return, and I don't see you anymore
You want to return, and I don't feel you anymore
You want to return, and I don't find you anymore


I think of that day,
the same as yesterday,
the same will be
...the same thoughts

Over my head

I never knew
I never knew that everything was falling through
That everyone I knew was waiting on a queue
To turn and run when all I needed was the truth
But that's how it's got to be
It's coming down to nothing more than apathy
I'd rather run the other way than stay and see
The smoke and who's still standing when it clears

Everyone knows I'm in
Over my head
Over my head
With eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind
She's on your mind

Let's rearrange
I wish you were a stranger I could disengage
Just say that we agree and then never change
Soften a bit until we all just get along
But that's disregard
Find another friend and you discard
As you lose the argument in a cable car
Hanging above as the canyon comes between

Everyone knows I'm in
Over my head
Over my head
With eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind
She's on your mind

Everyone knows I'm in
Over my head
Over my head
With eight seconds left in overtime
She's on your mind
She's on your ...

And suddenly I become a part of your past
I'm becoming the part that don't last
I'm losing you and its effortless
Without a sound we lose sight of the ground
In the throw around
Never thought that you wanted to bring it down
I won't let it go down till we torch it ourselves
