Parimaid jõule!

Tänavu on natuke pahasti läinud. Selles mõttes, noh, et… pole mahti olnud ühtki jõulukaarti teha ega midagi. Aga ometi ei ühine ma nendega, kes jõulude ärajätmise nimel lärmi teevad. Ära ei jää nad nii või teisiti. 🙂

Hästi mõnusaid pühi ja hingesoojust (ja niisama soojust ka, sest väljas on täitsa talviselt külm) ja kõikide soovide täitumist!

Minu poolt tervituseks üks poolkogemata sündinud jõululiku alatooniga salm ja juba mõned aastad vana laulujupike.

päevinäinud päkapikk
vanust umbes igavik
mõtles minna rändama

reisis aasta, seikles kaks
ikkagi jäi vanemaks
mõtles: “miks küll jändan ma?”

puhkehetkel aasias
mõtiskledes taipas ta:
tore oli rännata
lõpuks koju tahaks ka

garf – jõulukuul

Ei ole tarvis kuusepuud (nulg võib ka olla)
ega kingikotti suurt (kinkekaardid ei võta palju ruumi)
Tõtt-öelda seegi ju ei loe
on väljas külm või soe (peaasi, et lumine oleks)

Fun-loving Creature, vol. 2

Haigena kodus võib ikka igasugu imelikke asju juhtuda. Näiteks eile viisistasin need sõnad lõpuks ära:

Zarvik, näed — nüüd ma laulan, aga bändi pole kuskil näha. Jälle häda, mis?

Ühtlasi… ülaltoodud videos laulsin ma need esimest korda algusest lõpuni läbi. Pärast seda oli hääl kähe, seega rohkem “läbi harjutatud” versiooni kuulete ilmselt alles Penthouse 9 esituses laval.

Memory Lane

so you’re tired of your everyday life, it seems such a drag?
wanna go back to the good old days, revisit all the fun you’ve had?
get back together with the gang, shoot some pool just like you used to do
or ring up your ex girlfriend so that she’d still have it bad for you?

put your clock in reverse and accelerate down memory lane
pick an album of your choice, use it as a visual aid
whenever in misery, remember these few words that i said:
there’s a built in time machine… in your head

or how, for instance, would you feel about this:
re-experience the feelings of your very first kiss
the excitement and anticipation giving you such a thrill
she seems ready, there’s the green light — now go for the kill!

put your clock in reverse…

a good friend of yours who has long since passed away
but inside your mind it still feels like yesterday
so you rewind the tape and just let the conversation flow
you feel like you should… but it’s so hard to let go

put your clock in reverse…

Inspiratsioon ei hüüa tulles

Mõni päev tagasi osutus minu pingemaandamismeetod kellelegi inspiratsiooniallikaks: [A Lonesome Wolf]. Mina vastasin nii:

one day an angel… oh, wait
a bird? a plane? no way
one day i saw a butterfly
it was an instant high

told me her name was… i forget
did she even say?
but that is not the point, i met
my destiny that day

***

an influential butterfly
her soul will never die
i really love to see her fly
oh, butterfly
so high…

***

she told a tale, it was quite strange
of someone she once knew
a lonesome wolf who drove in rage
when he was feeling blue

this wolf reminded me of someone
someone i should know
i thought about it, came undone
it hit me, had to go

***

an influential butterfly
her soul will never die
i really love to see her fly
oh, butterfly
so high…

***

got in my car and drove all night
a day, a week, a year
my mind enraged, not quite alright
fleeing from my fear

i asked her, “is it true? reply!”
not knowing what to do
“the lonesome wolf,” said butterfly,
“that lonesome wolf was you”

***

an influential butterfly
her soul will never die
i really love to see her fly
oh, butterfly
so high…

Fun-loving Creature

Ja kes siis ühe looga päevas piirdub? Teine ikka ka! 🙂

she has her own little place near the centre
where there’s a party every night
although her doormat doesn’t really say “ENTER”
inside there’s rarely a fight
‘cause she’s a… fun loving creature
yeah, she’s a fun loving girl
and that… fun loving creature
would like to welcome all of you to her world
her parties, they are never too big or too loud
people singing, playing games, one-on-one
you could definitely say that guitars are allowed
yeah, there’s something there for everyone
‘cause she’s a… fun loving creature
yeah, she’s a fun loving girl
and that… fun loving creature
would like to welcome all of you to her world
but at some point even her parties, yeah
they must eventually slow down
a man walks in, we sense the end is near
it’s time for her to settle down
‘cause she’s a fun, loving creature
yeah, she’s a fun, loving girl
and that fun, loving creature
would like to welcome someone special to her world

Aitäh, Katre, esialgse idee ja inspiratsiooni eest! 😉

The Angel Got Engaged

Väike loomepuhang vahelduseks, sai ühe rea ootavate ideede nimekirjast jälle maha tõmmata:

so you’ve been kind of influential
one by one you’ve made them mental
but the one you couldn’t reach
was an angel on the beach
oh her eyes were blue as saphire
she could set your soul on fire
but she was just too much to touch
so you decided just to watch
…and so it was…
the angel got engaged, now you don’t know what to do
the angel got engaged, it has you feeling slightly blue
but there’s really nothing else to do, you’d better find somebody new
bet she still haunts your every waking hour
makes you wish you’d picked that flower
oh, for sure, you had some fun
but commitment? you had none
…so get over it…

Tuhk

Üle hulga aja midagi uut:

sa läksid liiga kaugele, ei pidan’d piiri
kuid nüüd on hilja muuta oma perspektiivi
kõik mis sind ootab ees, on vältimatu hukk
su roosat ihu katab tuhk

ei hoolin’d soovitusist, sõpradelt mis said
seepärast ninna tungimas on kirbe hais
nüüd ootab ees sind ainult vältimatu hukk
su roosat ihu katab tuhk

***

ref:
nad pole vaenlased, nad soovivad sull’ head!
kui mõistad kuulata, nad näitavad
mis õpetanud neil’ on nende tehtud vead
sind karidest nad mööda aitavad

***

kes oleks arvanud, et otsa lõppeb kõik
jah, oli neid, kuid märkamata jäi see tõik
su maailmast on üle käinud punav kukk
su roosat ihu katab tuhk

kõik plaanid segi paisatud, ei näe, kus minna
see vastik hais… veel ikka tungib ninna
ja parim sõber, oled tema jaoks vaid õhk
su roosat ihu katab tuhk

***

on lootus kadumas, su elul puudub mõte
kuid see ei ole surm, see on vaid valuvõte
leia üles päiksekiir ja võta sellest tuld!
su roosat ihu katab… (instrumentaal)

…i never wanna lose you…

i met you rather randomly
just hangin’ at a party
i didn’t know we’re meant to be
just waiting to get started

and now you’re everything to me
your smile is everything i see
and i would never give you away
i need to see you every day

i never want to lose you
i never want to let you go
‘cause i’ve realised you’re all i need
i never want to lose you

i never want to lose you
i never want to let.. you.. go..
i need you here with me

i never-ever
never wanna lose you
but now that we’re together, babe
i must admit i’m quite afraid

i never want to lose you
i never want to let you go
‘cause i’ve realised you’re all i need
i never want to lose you

i never want to lose you
i never want to let.. you.. go..
i need you here with me

garf – i never wanna lose you
