Songs

You can listen and read the lyrics of some songs I like. Activities will also be provided for some of the songs. Hope you like it.

1. This first song is a classic written by the so-called American Beatle, Harry Nilsson: One
[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.goear.com/files/external.swf?file=d2c7754" width="350" height="320" wmode="transparent" /]

These are the lyrics:
ONE
One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do
two can be as bad as one
it’s the loneliest number since the number one

No is the saddest experience you’ll ever know
yes it’s the saddest experience you’ll ever know
because one is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do
one is the loneliest number that you’ll ever know

It’s just no good anymore since you went away
now I spend my time
just making rhymes of yesterday

Because one is the loneliest number
that you’ll ever do
one is the loneliest number
that you’ll ever know

One is the loneliest number
one is the loneliest number
one is the loneliest number
that you’ll ever do
one is the loneliest number
much, much worse than two

One is the number divided by two
One………..

One is the loneliest number

2. BRYN CHRISTOPHER: THE QUEST

LYIRICS:
’m leaving tonight
Going somewhere deep inside my mind
I close my eyes slowly
Flowin’ away slowly
But I know I’ll be alright
It’s coming stronger to me
And I know someone is out there
Lead the way
Lead the way
Show me the answers I need to know
What I’m gonna live for
What I’m gonna die for
Who you gonna fight for
I can’t answer that
All my life/love it is
It is all my love
All my life/love it is
I know it is a life to live lately
From above I hear
I hear the sound of them sinkin’
I feel numb, I’m alive
I know I’m getting closer
What I’m gonna live for
What I’m gonna die for
Who you gonna fight for
I can’t answer that
My life has had it’s share of troubles
And now I found a place to go
I’ve said goodbye to all my troubles
’cause now I’ve find my place to go
What I’m gonna live for
What I’m gonna die for
Who you gonna fight for
I can’t answer that
What I’m gonna live for
What I’m gonna die for
Who you gonna fight for
I can’t answer that
What I’m gonna live for
What I’m gonna die for
Who you gonna fight for
I can’t answer that
Live for
Die for
Fight for

LYRICS:
The heart is a bloom,
shoots up through the stony ground
But there’s no room,
no space to rent in this town
You’re out of luck,
and the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck,
and you’re not moving anywhere
You thought you’d found a friend,
to take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
in return for grace

It’s a beautiful day
The sky falls and you feel like
It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away

You’re on the road, but you’ve got no destination
You’re in the mud, in the maze of her imagination
You love this town, even if that doesn’t ring true
You’ve been all over, and it’s been all over you

It’s a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away
It’s a beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Teach me
I know I’m not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light, and
See the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out

It was a beautiful day
Don’t let it get away
Beautiful day

Touch me
Take me to that other place
Reach me
I know I’m not a hopeless case

What you don’t have, you don’t need it now
What you don’t know, you can feel it somehow
What you don’t have, you don’t need it now
Don’t need it now
It was a beautiful day.

5. Your Song, by Sir Elton John
I just love this song, a very simple but touching song by one of my favourite artists.
Hope you enjoy it!

YOUR SONG
It’s a little bit funny this feeling inside
I’m not one of those who can easily hide
I don’t have much money but boy if i did
I’d buy a big house where we both could live

If i was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a traveling show
I know it’s not much but it’s the best i can do
My gift is my song and this one’s for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it’s done
I hope you don’t mind
I hope you don’t mind that i put down in words
How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they’ve got me quite cross
But the sun’s been quite kind while i wrote this song
It’s for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things i do
You see i’ve forgotten if they’re green or they’re blue
Anyway the thing is what i really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes i’ve ever seen

5. Viva la Vida by Coldplay

This one is dedicated to FC Barcelona and their fantastic manager: Pep Guardiola. I also expect that some of my students appreciate it.

LYRICS
I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sweep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own
I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy’s eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing:
“Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!”
One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of sand, pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can not explain
Once you know there was never, never an honest word
That was when I ruled the world
(Ohhh)

It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in.
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People could not believe what I’d become
Revolutionaries Wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells are ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can not explain
I know Saint Peter will call my name
Never an honest word
And that was when I ruled the world
(Ohhhhh Ohhh Ohhh)

Hear Jerusalem bells are ringings
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can not explain
I know Saint Peter will call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh”

6. Angie The Rolling Stones</strong</

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.goear.com/files/external.swf?file=ff3791a" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="300" height="250" wmode="transparent" /]” width=”300″ height=”250″ wmode=”transparent” /]

Angie, angie, when will those clouds all disappear?
Angie, angie, where will it lead us from here?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You cant say were satisfied
But angie, angie, you cant say we never tried
Angie, youre beautiful, but aint it time we said good-bye?
Angie, I still love you, remember all those nights we cried?
All the dreams we held so close seemed to all go up in smoke
Let me whisper in your ear:
Angie, angie, where will it lead us from here?
Oh, angie, dont you weep, all your kisses still taste sweet
I hate that sadness in your eyes
But angie, angie, aint it time we said good-bye?
With no loving in our souls and no money in our coats
You cant say were satisfied
But angie, I still love you, baby
Evrywhere I look I see your eyes
There aint a woman that comes close to you
Come on baby, dry your eyes
But angie, angie, aint it good to be alive?
Angie, angie, they cant say we never tried

7. Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen
(You may recognise this old song if you like Shreck)

[kml_flashembed movie=http://www.goear.com/files/external.swf?file=e7e2e8b" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="300" height="250" wmode="transparent" /]

I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music do you?
It goes like this – the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled King composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Maybe I’ve been here before
I know this room, I’ve walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you
I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

There was a time when you let me know
What’s real and going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The Holy Dark was moving too
And every breath we drew was hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Maybe there’s a God above
And all I ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
And it’s not a cry you can hear at night
It’s not somebody who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

i’M yOURS

 

10. SOMEONE LIKE YOU  –  ADELE

LYRICS

I heard that your settled down.

That you found a girl and your married now.

I heard that your dreams came true.

Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.

 

Old friend why are you so shy?

It ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the lie.

 

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited.

But I couldn’t stay away I couldn’t fight it.

I’d hoped you’d see my face & that you’d be reminded

That for me it isn’t over.

 

Nevermind I’ll find someone like you.

I wish nothing but the best for you too.

Don’t forget me I beg I remember you said:-

“Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead”

Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead yeah.
