So I dance on the graves where the hallowed fall




"Wasteland" - The Mission


I still believe in God,
but God no longer believes in me.

There's a crystal view from my window
And I can see years to come
I live for the burn and the sting of pleasure
I live for the sword, the steel, and the gun
I can tear down the walls, storm the barricades
Run to the place where the frightened crawl
Desire lurks beyond good and evil
So I dance on the graves where the hallowed fall

Over this land
All over this wasteland
Over this land
All over this wasteland

You can touch, but please keep your distance
You're innocent and pure and with no shame
 The spirit is willing, and the flesh is craved
You tease and you taunt with the pleasure of pain

Over this land
All over this wasteland
Over this land
All over this wasteland

Heaven and Hell, I know them well
But I haven't yet made my choice
I'm feeling scared 'cause I'm shouting loud
And no one can hear my voice
I'm walking the tightwire, can't look down
Strung out high, above you all
Fateful wind blows through this land
Howls my name, heralds my fall

Over this land
All over this wasteland
Over this land
All over this wasteland

She moved through the fair




"She moved through the fair" - Loreena McKennitt


My love said to me:
"My mother won't mind
And me father won't slight you
For your lack of kind".
Then she stepped away from me
And this she did say:
"It will not be long, love,
Till our wedding day."

She stepped away from me
And she moved through the fair
And fondly I watched her
Move here and move there
And she went her way homeward
With one star awake
As the swans in the evening
Move over the lake

The people were saying
No two e'er were wed
But one has a sorrow
That never was said
And she smiled as she passed me
With her goods and her gear
And that was the last
That I saw of my dear.

I dreamed it last night
That my true love came in
So softly she entered
Her feet made no din
She came close beside me
And this she did say:
"It will not be long, love,
Till our wedding day."


Del álbum "Elemental" (1985)

Esta es la versión de la canadiense McKennitt pero hay otras donde se cambia el sentido de algunas frases. Pero a grandes rasgos, esta canción tradicional irlandesa cuenta la historia de un fantasma, de un gran amor perdido que sólo por un instante vuelve del más allá.

Come Talk To Me



"Come talk to me" - Peter Gabriel & Paula Cole



The wretched desert takes its form, the jackal proud and tight
In search of you, I feel my way, though the slowest heaving night
Whatever fear invents, I swear it make no sense
I reach through the border fence
Come down, come talk to me

In the swirling, curling storm of desire unuttered words hold fast
With reptile tongue, the lightning lashes towers built to last
Darkness creeps in like a thief and offers no relief
Why are you shaking like a leaf
Come on, come talk to me

Ah please talk to me
Won't you please talk to me
We can unlock this misery
Come on, come talk to me

{Chorus 1:}
I did not come to steal
 This all is so unreal
Can't you show me how you feel now
Come on, come talk to me
Come talk to me [x2]

The earthly power sucks shadowed milk from sleepy tears undone
From nippled skin as smooth as silk the bugles blown as one
You lie there with your eyes half closed like there's no-one there at all
There's a tension pulling on your face
Come on, come talk to me

Won't you please talk to me
If you'd just talk to me
Unblock this misery
If you'd only talk to me

{Chorus 2:}
Don't you ever change your mind
Now your future's so defined
And you act so deaf and blind
[And you act so deaf so blind]
Come on, come talk to me
Come talk to me [x2]

I can imagine the moment
Breaking out through the silence
All the things that we both might say
And the heart it will not be denied
'Til we're both on the same damn side
All the barriers blown away

I said please talk to me
Won't you please come talk to me
Just like it used to be
Come on, come talk to me
I did not come to steal
This all is so unreal
Can you show me how you feel now
Come on, come talk to me
Come talk to me [x2]

I said please talk to me
If you'd just talk to me
Unblock this misery
If you'd only talk to me
[Chorus 2]

Uno de mis temas favoritos de Peter Gabriel que en su versión en directo en el tour Secret World de 1994 es simplemente genial :)

XX Aniversario

En 2014 se cumple el XX aniversario de tres cosas cuasi fundamentales para muchos de nosotros :)  Primero, el estreno de The Crow de Alex Proyas que fue el 11 de mayo, después el primer concierto internacional en plan darkie en el DF que fue el de London After Midnight el 23 de junio y por último, el estreno de Interview with the vampire de Neil Jordan que fue el 11 de noviembre.

Que veinte años no es nada ;-)

I wanna see you dressed in black



"Black" - The 69 Eyes

Would you tell me that you love me
If you never really cared
Would tell me that you leave me
If no tears were never shared
Don’t you try to tell me
It’s all over again
Don’t try to show me
Loneliness my old friend
Every night I want you back again
Every night I’m in the black
Every night I need your love again
I wanna see you dressed in black
I want you back
In black
I wanna see you dressed in black
Should I stay forever lonely
Like I never really cared
Should I answer when you call me
Like those years were never there
Don’t you try to tell me
It’s all over again
Don’t try to show me
Loneliness my old friend
Every night I want you back again
Every night I’m in the black
Every night I need your love again
I wanna see you dressed in black
I want you back
In black
I wanna see you dressed in black

9º Aniversario




El número 9 indica la maestría de la experiencia. Es 3 x 3, la trinidad tres veces. El nueve conoce del cielo, del hombre y de la tierra; conoce del espíritu, la mente y el cuerpo.

Hoy hace nueve años que inicié este blog. Cinco meses de vida tenía mi Happy Demon.

Me ha costado mantener esta ventana al mundo pero no dejo de intentarlo. 

Gracias a los que siguen leyendo mi blog  por gusto, por costumbre o por simple casualidad  :)
