You could be my unintended
Choice to live my life extended
You should be the one I’ll always love
I’ll be there as soon as I can
But I’m busy mending broken pieces of the life I had before
Muse – Unintended
I met a girl who sang the blues
And I asked her for some happy news,
But she just smiled and turned away.
I went down to the sacred store
Where I’d heard the music years before,
But the man there said the music wouldn’t play.
And in the streets: the children screamed,
The lovers cried, and the poets dreamed.
But not a word was spoken;
The church bells all were broken.
And the three men I admire most:
The father, son, and the holy ghost,
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the music died.
Don McLean – American Pie
My winter storm
Holding me awake
It’s never gone
When I walk alone
Tarja Turunen – I Walk Alone
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day
Rolling Stones – Wild Horses
Thank you for the music, the songs I’m singing
Thanks for all the joy they’re bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me
Abba – Thank You for the Music
(or the metal tribute version)
All pictures are of street musicians in Barcelona, March 2008 (n0.3 = Javier van Velthoven, no.4 = Leonardo Trincabelli)
Thank you all for the music.
No, I don’t want to battle from beginning to end
I don’t want to cycle or recycle revenge
I don’t want to follow death and all of his friends
And in the end
We lie awake and we dream of making our escape
Coldplay – Death and All His Friends
shouldn’t have been another muse one.
but this is for a cookie :)
(You set my soul alight)
Glaciers melting in the dead of night
And the superstars sucked into the ‘supermassive’
Supermassive black hole
Muse – Supermassive Black Hole
I had no idea what it’d cost
My life passed before my eyes
I found out how little I accomplished
All my plans denied
If my heart was still alive
I know it would surely break
Megadeth – A Tout le Monde
