One – Metallica (1989)

 

I can’t remember anything
Can’t tell if this is true or dream
Deep down inside I feel to scream
This terrible silence stops me

Now that the war is through with me
I’m waking up, I cannot see
That there is not much left of me
Nothing is real but pain now

Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please God, wake me

Back in the womb it’s much too real
In pumps life that I must feel
But can’t look forward to reveal
Look to the time when I’ll live

Fed through the tube that sticks in me
Just like a wartime novelty
Tied to machines that make me be
Cut this life off from me

Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please God, wake me

Now the world is gone, I’m just one
Oh God help me
Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please God, help me

Darkness imprisoning me
All that I see
Absolute horror
I cannot live
I cannot die
Trapped in myself
Body my holding cell

Landmine has taken my sight
Taken my speech
Taken my hearing
Taken my arms
Taken my legs
Taken my soul
Left me with life in hell

Puff Daddy / Faith Evans / 112 – I’ll Be Missing You (1998)

Come tutti sappiamo, questa è una cover di “The Police – I’ll be watching you” del 1983.
Carino il motivetto? E’ in realtà stato “preso” da una composizione di Johann Sebastian Bach, proprio lui, il MITICO Bach, maestro di Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (che lo amava – musicalmente). Ecco il perché di tanto successo. Ma Sting non si è ispirato a Bach solo in questa canzone, ce ne sono tante altre 🙂 – e come dargli torto…

Every day I wake up
I hope I’m dreaming
I can’t believe this shit
Cant believe you ain’t here
Sometimes it’s just hard for a nigga to wake up
Its hard to just keep going
Its like I feel empty inside without you being here
I would do anything man, to bring you back
Id give all this shit, shit the whole knot
I saw your son today
He look just like you
You was the greatest
You’ll always be the greatest
I miss you big
Cant wait till that day, when I see your face again
I can’t wait till that day, when I see your face again…

Yeah… this right here (tell me why)
Goes out, to everyone, that has lost someone
That they truly loved (cmon, check it out)

Verse one: puff daddy

Seems like yesterday we used to rock the show
I laced the track, you locked the flow
So far from hanging on the block for dough
Notorious, they got to know that
Life ain’t always what it seem to be (uh-uh)
Words can’t express what you mean to me
Even though you’re gone, we still a team
Through your family, I’ll fulfill your dream (that’s right)
In the future, can’t wait to see
If you open up the gates for me
Reminisce some time, the night they took my friend (uh-huh)
Try to black it out, but it plays again
When it’s real, feelings hard to conceal
Cant imagine all the pain I feel
Give anything to hear half your breath (half your breath)
I know you still living your life, after death

Chorus: faith evans

Every step I take, every move I make
Every single day, every time I pray
Ill be missing you
Thinking of the day, when you went away
What a life to take, what a bond to break
Ill be missing you

[puff] I miss you big

Verse two: puff daddy

Its kinda hard with you not around (yeah)
Know you in heaven smiling down (eheh)
Watching us while we pray for you
Every day we pray for you
Till the day we meet again
In my heart is where I’ll keep you friend
Memories give me the strength I need (uh-huh) to proceed
Strength I need to believe
My thoughts big I just can’t define (cant define)
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Us in the 6, shop for new clothes and kicks
You and me taking flicks
Making hits, stages they receive you on
I still can’t believe you’re gone (cant believe you’re gone)
Give anything to hear half your breath (half your breath)
I know you still living you’re life, after death

Chorus

[faith evans] somebody tell me why

Interlude: faith evans

On that morning
When this life is over
I know
Ill see your face

Outro: 112

Every night I pray, every step I take
Every move I make, every single day
Every night I pray, every step I take
[puff] every day that passes
Every move I make, every single day
[puff] is a day that I get closer
[puff] to seeing you again
Every night I pray, every step I take
[puff] we miss you big… and we wont stop
Every move I make, every single day
[puff] cause we can’t stop… that’s right
Every night I pray, every step I take
Every move I make, every single day
[puff] we miss you big

Nicki Minaj – Fly (Feat. Rihanna)

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

[Verse 1: Nicki Minaj]
I wish today it will rain all day
Maybe that will kinda make the pain go away
Trying to forgive you for abandoning me
Praying but I think I’m still an angel away
Angel away, yeah strange in a way
Maybe that is why I chase strangers away
They got their guns out aiming at me
But I become near when they aiming at me
Me, me, me against them
Me against enemies, me against friends
Somehow they both seem to become one
A sea full of sharks and they all see blood
They start coming and I start rising
Must be surprising, I’m just summising
Win, thrive, soar, higher, higher, higher
More fire

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

[Verse 2: Nicki Minaj]
Everybody wanna try to box me in
Suffocating everytime it locks me in
Paint they own pictures than they crop me in
But I will remain where the top begins
Cause I am not a word, I am not a line
I am not a girl that can every be defined

I am not fly, I am levitation
I represent an entire generation
I hear the criticism loud and clear
That is how I know that the time is near
So we become alive in a time of fear
And I ain’t got no motherfucking time to spare
Cry my eyes out for days upon days
Such a heavy burden placed upon me
But when you go hard your nay’s become yay’s
Yankee Stadium with Jay’s and Kanye’s

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

[Bridge: Nicki Minaj]
Get ready for it
Get ready for it
Get ready for it
I came to win
Get ready for it
Get ready for it
I came to win

[Chorus: Rihanna]
I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
To fly
To fly

A thousand days – The Offpspring (1989)

Ask me no questions and I’ll tell you
I’ll tell you no lies
When all is said and done
Does it really matter who’s wrong or right
Don’t ask me for a reason, I can’t explain
Why we hurt one another again and again
As I lie bleeding here I still
I still reach for you
A thousand days
Have passed away
A thousand days
Were captured in her eyes
Your eyes are open now but you know
Its still hard to see inside
When action and intention
Are two separate things
Now I somehow wish I could explain
Why we hurt each other again and again
Like someone on his dying breath
I still reach for you
A thousand days
Have passed away
A thousand days
Were captured in her eyes
Forever we’ve been
Trapped by our hearts
Trapped by our minds
I’d like to leave
I’d like to win at love
But I just can’t let it go
And I just can’t watch it slipping away
And I just can’t let it go
And I just can’t stand another minute
Maybe now someday our shattered lives
Will mend themselves again
But now a million miles away
I still wish I could
And though I somehow know, I can’t explain
Why we hurt another again and again
Like someone on his dying breath
I still reach for you

Traduzione in Italiano

Un migliaio di giorni

Non farmi domande e non ti dirò
Non ti dirò bugie
Quando tutto è stato detto e fatto
Importa veramente cosa sia sbagliato e cosa giusto?

Non chiedermi spiegazioni, non posso spiegare,
Perché ci facciamo ancora una volta del male a vicenda
Dicendo bugie sto in piedi sanguinante
Ecco che ancora mi tendo verso di te…

Un migliaio di giorni
Sono trascorsi
Un migliaio di giorni
Erano catturati negli occhi di Lei

I tuoi occhi sono aperti ora,
ma lo sai che è difficile vederci dentro
Quando azione ed intenzione sono due cose diverse
Ora vorrei spiegare in qualche maniera
Perché ci facciamo ancora una volta del male a vicenda

Come qualcuno che sta esalando il suo ultimo respiro
Ecco che ancora mi tendo verso di te

Siamo stati per sempre comandati dai nostri cuori
Comandati dalle nostre idee
Vorrei mollare
Vorrei vincere in amore
Ma semplicemente non posso lasciarlo sfuggire
e no non posso vederlo sfuggire via
E non posso lasciarlo andare
E non posso resistere qui un altro minuto

Forse un giorno le nostre vite ormai rovinate
Si metteranno in sesto da sole
Ma ora, lontano milioni di miglia
Vorrei ancora poterlo fare
E sebbene Io sappia come,
non posso spiegare

Perché ci facciamo ancora una volta del male a vicenda
Dicendo bugie sto in piedi sanguinante

Ecco che ancora mi tendo verso di te…

Alice Cooper – Poison (1989 – Trash)

Your cruel device
your blood, like ice
One look, could kill
My pain, your thrill…

I wanna love you but I better not touch (don’t touch)
I wanna hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna kiss you but I want it too much (too much)
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You’re poison, running through my veins
Poison
I don’t wanna play these games

Your mouth, so hot
Your web, I’m caught
Your skin, so wet
Black lace, on sweat….

I hear you calling and it’s needles and pins (and pins)
I wanna hurt you just to hear you screaming my name
Don’t wanna touch you but you’re under my skin (deep in)
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You’re poison, running through my veins
Poison
I don’t wanna break these chains
Poison…

(guitar solo)

One look, could kill
My pain, your thrill…

I wanna love you but I better not touch (don’t touch)
I wanna hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna kiss you but I want it too much (to much)
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You’re poison, running through my veins
Poison
I don’t wanna break these chains
Poison (Poi-son….)

I wanna love you but I better not touch (don’t touch)
I wanna hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna kiss you but I want it too much (too much)
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
Yeah….
Well I don’t wanna break these chains
Poison
Runnin’ deep inside my veins
Burnin’ deep inside my brain
Poison
and I don’t wanna break these chains
Poison

Traduzione
Veleno

il tuo crudele espediente
il tuo sangue, come ghiaccio
uno sguardo che potrebbe uccidere
il mio dolore, il tuo fremito

voglio amarti
ma è meglio che non tocchi
voglio possederti
ma i miei sensi mi dicono di fermarmi
voglio baciarti
ma lo voglio troppo
voglio sentire il tuo sapore
ma le tue labbra sono maligno veleno
sei veleno che scorre nelle mie vene
sei veleno
non voglio giocare a questi giochi

la tua bocca così calda
la tua ragnatela, sono catturato
la tua pelle, così umida
nero pizzo, sul sudore

sento che mi chiami e sto sulle spine
voglio farti male solo per sentirti urlare il mio nome
non voglio toccarti ma sei sotto la mia pelle (nel profondo)
voglio sentire il tuo sapore ma le tue labbra sono maligno veleno
sei veleno che scorre nelle mie vene
sei veleno
non voglio rompere queste catene
sei veleno.
