The Killers – Shot At The Night

Nova música do The Killers na área, confira!

Once in a lifetime, the suffering of fools
To find our way home, to break in these palms
Once in a lifetime (Once in a lifetime)
Once in a lifetime

Give me a shot at the night
Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious
Give me a shot at the night
Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious

Once in a lifetime, the breaking of the roof
To find that our home, has long been a throne
Draw me a life line, ‘cause honey I got nothing to lose
Once in a lifetime (Once in a lifetime)
Once in a lifetime

Give me a shot at the night
Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious
Give me a shot at the night
Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious
Give me a shot at the night

Look at my reflection in the mirror
Underneath the power of the light
Give me a shot at the night
Give me a shot at the night
Give me a shot at the night
I feel like I’m losing the fight

Give me a shot at the night
Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious
Give me a shot at the night

Give me a shot at the night
Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious
Give me a shot at the night
Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious
Give me a shot at the night
Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious
Give me a shot at the night

 

The Killers – Battle Born Letra

Lost faith in the human spirit
You walk around like a ghost
Your star spangled heart
Took a train for the coast

When you shine you’re a hill top mansion
So how’d ya lose the light?
Was it blown by the wind?
In the still of the night

Up against the wall
Up against the wall
There’s something dying on the street
When they knock you down
You’re gonna get back on your feet
(But you can’t stop now)

I always saw you as a kind of keeper
Mother to a child
But your boys have grown soft
And your girls have gone wild

From the blue ranch to the black hills
To the redwood sky
The season they pass
But the dream doesn’t die

Now don’t you drop the ball
Up against the wall
There’s something dying on the street
When they knock you down
You’re gonna get back on your feet
(But you can’t stop now)

When they break your heart
And when they called you soft
In the morn remember what I said
Boy you was Battle Born
(But you can’t stop now)

You was Battle Born

When the night boils on the land
Are you haunted by the sound?

It’s gonna take more than a hand
To turn this thing around
But you need it underneath
Rescue, set me free!

Up against the wall
Up against the wall
There’s something dying on the street
When they knock you down
You’re gonna get back on your feet

(But you can’t stop now)

Did they break your heart?
And did they call you soft?
In the morn remember what I said
Boy you was battle born

(But you can’t stop now)

Come on show your face
Come on give us one look more
Unless you fall into the dark

You never win
You never lose
You can never shine if you never prove
Rise in time
They never told
The family man
Turn away
The open home


THE KILLERS – FROM HERE ON OUT LETRAS

Little birdie whispered in my ear,
You been cooking up a world of fear,
Put your hands in things.
You should have known,
You was riding in the danger zone.
Well you had us all fooled with your quarter back smile,
And your crocodile tears there for a while,

My paradigm shifting man you’re making me shout:
Hey, from here on out,
Friends are gonna be hard to come by,
Left us wondering what it all was about,
You had it easy man you chose the hard way,
Walk that old lonely road in a shadow of a doubt,
From here on out.

Should I pass over, decide to cross?
You may wonder what the trouble costs,
That don’t matter now life goes on.
Hallelujah the trouble’s gone,
No sense in holding grudges and its best to forgive,
These are things that I must learn to practice while I live,

Got my paradigm shifting man you’re making me shout:
Hey, from here on out,
Friends are gonna be hard to come by,
Left us wondering what was it was all about,
You had it easy man chose the hard way,
Walk that old lonely road in a shadow of a doubt.
Hey, from here on out,
Let the bugle blow a song of peace time,
Left us wondering what it’s all about,
You been denied but you carried it with ya
,Down that old lonely road in a shadow of a doubt,
Yeah from here on out.

The Killers – Heart of a Girl LYRICS

Looking out my window an angel in robe appeared and nearly pulled me apart
A million miles of freedom
A million miles of road
She wrote her number down
She gave it to me
They had to scrape me off the floor
In this transient town
Waiters and dealers trying to get their foot in the door
That night I called her, she said

Daddy, daddy, daddy, all my life
I’ve been trying to find my place in the world
(I said to her)
Baby, baby, babe I got all night
To listen to the heart of a girl

I can see the time dripping down the clock
We’ve been trying to hear that ancient refrain
It’s the one that knows us when our heads are down
It reminds us of the place from where we came
Where we came

Daddy, daddy, daddy, all my life
I’ve been trying to find my place in this world
Baby, baby, babe I got all night
To listen to the heart of a girl

What happened here? What is this world?
It’s too far from the heart of a girl
Ripping the heart from the drop of a pearl
I’m on the shore waiting for the heart of a girl

Many doors
Knock on one
Standing still, time is raging
Staring down the mouth of 100,000 guns
You’re still here, you’re still here
I believe that we never have to be alone
Yes I believe it’s just around the bend
You can hold it in, or you can scream it on the microphone
There is no end
There is no end

Deep in the night, I feel a presence
Of something that was long ago, told to me
There is a hand guiding the river
The river to wide open sea
And deep in my heart, ?
On any mountain, no I’m not afraid
Standing on stone,
You stand beside me and all of our plans that were made.

THE KILLERS – THE RISING TIDE (LETRA)

The Rising Tide

The streets of persuasion
Are plated with gold
Your heart’s in the right place
But you traveled down the wrong road

Like so many before you
The gates open wide
Here come the rising tide

Let’s go out tonight
There’s a mystery underneath the neon light

Before life and the dream collide
Cause the truth gonna come and cut me open wide
And you can’t escape the rising of the tide

Keep up your appearance
You’re joining the choir
With everybody singing out
Glory, Hallelujah
The time came for your solo
But there was nowhere to hide
Here come the rising tide

And the company you keep
Well, they plan your crucifixion as we speak

So baby, ‘till life and the dream collide
There’s gonna be a mystery underneath those neon lights

If you can’t decide for just who’s on your side
You and I escape the rising of the tide

Can you tell me how was I deceived or in denial?
I was there in the back of the room when you touched the fire

With your pitchfork tongue
You lick your lips and lie
We’re never gonna know how hard you cry
When you petition and your access was denied

‘Till the venom in your veins is satisfied
‘Till you suffocate and swallow down your pride

Where you can’t escape
Can’t escape the rising of the tide
Where you can’t escape
Can’t escape the rising of the tide

The Killers – Miss Atomic Bomb LETRAS

Miss Atomic Bomb

You were standing with your girlfriends in the street
Falling back on forever
I wonder what you came to be
I was new in town, the boy with the eager eyes
I never was a quitter, oblivious to school girls’ lies

When I look back on those neon nights
The leather seats, the passage right
I feel the heat, I see the light

Miss Atomic Bomb
Making out we got the radio on
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

Racing shadows in the moonlight
Through the desert on a hot night
For a second there we won
Yeah we were innocent and young

AHHHH

Cast out of the night
And you got a foolish heart
So you took your place but the fall from grace was the hardest part

Feels just like a dagger buried deep in your back
You run for cover but you can’t escape the second attack
Your soul was innocent, she kissed it, painted it black
You should have seen your little face, burning for love
Hold on to your life and all I wanted was a little touch a little
tenderness and truth I didn’t ask for much no
Talk about being at the wrong place at the wrong time

Miss Atomic Bomb
Making out we got the radio on
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

Racing shadows in the moonlight
Taking chances on a hot night
For a second there we won
Yeah we were innocent and young

Dust clouds settle
My eyes are clear
But sometimes the dreams have impact I still hear

Miss Atomic Bomb

And I’m standing here
Sweat on my skin
And this love that I cradle
Is wearing thin
But I’m standing here
and you are too late
The shockwave whispers and seals your fate

But you move to the ground and you took a chance
On a losing situation
But you can’t survive when you want it all

The Killers – Here with Me LETRAS

Wheels are turning
I remember when you were mine
Just to reach you
Baby, I’d stand in line
There’s another world
We’re living in tonight

There’s another heart
That’s fading the light

Don’t want your picture on my cell phone
I want you here with me
Don’t need those memories in my head, no
I want you here with me

Spent the summer just layin’ out in the sun
Time seems to move so slowly, when you’re taking it as it comes
Maybe we were just too young
Your body was tan and your hair was long
You showed me your smile and my cares were gone
Falling in love filled my soul with fright
You said “come on babe, it’ll be alright”
Must have been a fool till the bitter end
Now I hold on to hope that I’ll have you back again

I’d bargain and I’d fight
But there’s another world you’re living in tonight

Don’t want your picture on my cell phone
I want you here with me
Don’t want your memory in my head no
I want you here with me

I saw you in a restaurant the other day
And instead of walking towards you, I ran away
I keep waiting for you

The Killers – Runaways

Eles voltaram! Em breve o Battle Born será lançado, enquanto isso temos um ótimo aperitivo aqui. Uma das melhores letras do The Killers”

Blonde hair blowin’ in the summer wind
A blue-eyed girl playing in the sand
I’d been on a trail for a little while
But that was the night that she broke down and held my hand
The teenage rush, she said, ‘maybe I’ll just runaway, we got time’
Well that ain’t much…
We can’t wait ‘til tomorrow
You gotta know that this is real, baby why you wanna fight it?
It’s the one thing you can choose, oh!

We got engaged on a Friday night
I swore on the head of our unborn child that I could take care of the three of us
But I got the tendency to slip when the nights get wild.
It’s in my blood
She says she might just runaway somewhere else, some place good
We can’t wait ‘til tomorrow
You gotta know that this is real, baby why you wanna fight it?
It’s the one thing you can choose

Let’s take a chance baby we can’t lose
Mean we’re all just runaways
I knew that when I met you, I’m not gonna let you runaway
I knew that when I held you, I wasn’t lettin’ go

We used to look at the stars and confess our dreams
Hold each other to the morning light
We used to laugh, now we only fight
Baby are you lonesome now?

At night I come home after they go to sleep
Like a stumbling ghost, I haunt these halls
There’s a picture of us on our wedding day
I recognize the girl but I can’t settle in these walls

We can’t wait ‘til tomorrow
No we’re caught up in the appeal, baby why you wanna hide it?
It’s the last thing on my mind
(Why you wanna hide it?)
I turn the engine over and my body just comes alive and we all just runaway
I knew that when I met you, I’m not gonna let you runaway
I knew that when I held you, I wasn’t lettin go, no no no!
(No no no!)
(And we’re all just runaways)
Yeah runaway
(And we’re all just runaways)
Yeah

The Horrors – Still Life


Under a sky, no one sees,
Waiting, watching it happening.
Don’t hurry give it time,
Things are the way they have to be.
Slow down, give it time,
Still life, you know I’m listening.
The moment that you want is coming if you give it time

When you wake up, when you wake up,
You anekatips will find me
When you wake up, when you wake up,
You will find me

Under a sky, no one else sees,
yourself appears in front of me (?)
The sky clear … i’m here
Waiting, what’s happening.
The moment that you want is coming if you give it time

When you wake up, when you wake up,
You will find me
When you wake up, when you wake up,
You will find me

The Horrors – Still Life, do álbum Skying (2011)

Music Monday: Arcade Fire – Wasted Hours

Arcade Fire

Ano de formação: 2003
Local: Canadá
Integrantes: William Butler, Jeremy Gara, Richard Reed Parry, Tim Kingsbury, Win Butler, Régine Chassagne, Sarah Neufeld

Eu estava com uma boa expectativa em relação a este novo álbum do Arcade Fire, mas não imaginava que ele seria tão bom. É sem dúvida o álbum mais regular dos caras e isso num nível extremamente alto. A produção continua impecável, mas menos ambiciosa que em Neon Bible, o que eu considero um bom negócio.

O fato é que existem músicas mais pegadas e animadas e algumas baladas, sendo estas o ponto alto de The Suburbs. Wasted Hours e Modern Man são extremamente belas e cativantes, dotadas de um lirismo que marca.

Um crítico americano disse que trata-se do OK COMPUTER do Arcade Fire… no caso, o ápice, a obra-prima. E eu concordo. Não acredito que eles possam se superar numa próxima, mas nem quero pensar nisso agora. Quero mais é curtir esse fantástico trabalho dos canadenses de Montreal.

Wasted Ours (The Suburbs – 2010)

All those wasted hours we used to know
Spent the summer staring out the window
The wind it takes you where it wants to go

First they built the road, then they built the town
That’s why we’re still driving round and round
And all we see
Are kids in buses longing to be free

Wasted hours, before we knew
Where to go, and what to do
Wasted hours, that you made new
And turned into
A life that we can live

Some cities make you lose your head
Endless suburbs stretched out thin and dead
And what was that line you said
Wishing you were anywhere but here
You watch the life you’re living disappear
And now I see
We’re still kids in buses longing to be free

Wasted hours, before we knew
Where to go, and what to do
Wasted hours, that you made new
And turned into
A life that we can live

Música da Semana: The National – Anyone’s Ghost

The National

Ano de formação: 1999
Local: Cincinatti, EUA
Integrantes: Brice Dessner, Matt Berninger, Bryan Devendorf, Aaron Dessner, Scott Devendorf e Padma Newsome.

Uma banda que melhora a cada lançamento. O novo álbum, High Violet, tem uma regularidade impressionante. TODAS as músicas são boas e tem as características que fazem do The National uma das grandes bandas da atualidade: a voz poderosa de Matt Berninger, o som poeticamente melancólico e as letras que falam sobre problemas reais de pessoas reais.

Anyone’s Ghost (do álbum High Violet – 2010)

Say you stay at home
Alone with the flu
Find out from friends
That wasn't true
Go out at night with your headphones on, again
And walk through the Manhattan valleys of, the dead

Didn't want to be your ghost
Didn't want to be anyone's ghost
Didn't want to be your ghost
Didn't want to be anyone's ghost
But I don't want anybody else
I don't want anybody else

You said I came close
As anyone has come
To live underwater
For more than a month
You said it was not inside my heart, it was
You said it should tear a kid apart, it does

Didn't want to be your ghost
Didn't want to be anyone's ghost
Didn't want to be your ghost
Didn't want to be anyone's ghost
But I don't want anybody else
I don't want anybody else
I don't want anybody else
I don't want anybody else

I had a hole in the middle where the lightning went through it
Told my friends not to worry
I had a hole in the middle someone's sideshow wouldn't do it
I told my friends not to worry

Didn't want to be your ghost
Didn't want to be anyone's ghost
Didn't want to be your ghost
Didn't want to be anyone's ghost

Música da Semana: LCD Soundsystem – All I Want

LCD Soundsystem

Ano de formação: 2002
Local: New York, EUA
Integrantes: James Murphy

O produtor musical James Murphy é destaque no mundo da música desde o primeiro álbum do LCD Soundsystem. A moral dele aumentou ainda mais com o sucessor, Sound of Silver, trabalho vencedor de diversos prêmios no mundo da música, sendo eleito o melhor lançamento de 2007 pela NME, por exemplo.
Admito que gostei de bastante coisa que ouvi, mas as músicas enjoaram rapidamente pra mim e nada me marcou tanto.
Isso até agora. This is Happening acaba de ser lançado e ele está recheado de ótimas e viciantes músicas. É um som eletrônico bem elaborado, viciante e que conta com um vocal de qualidade.
Talvez All I Want seja a melhor do CD e a melhor da carreira dele. O que acham? Letras abaixo

All I Want (do This os Happening – 2010)

Wait, for the day you come home from the lonely park
Look, for the girl who has put up with all of your sh!t
You've never needed anyone for so long

You look in the bed you've been gone for too long
To put in the time, but it's too late to make it strong

And all I want is your pity
Oh all I want are your bitter tears
Yeah, all I want is your pity
At least all I want are your bitter tears

All I want is your pity
Oh all I want are your bitter tears
Yeah, anekatips all I want is your pity
Oh all I want are your bitter tears

When will it start and the dark and the girls are gone
So you're back again and into the late unknown
You never needed anything for so long

All I want is your pity
And all I want are your bitter tears
Now all I want is your pity
And all I want are your bitter tears

From now on, I'm someone different
'Cause it's no fun to be predicting
From now on, there's
'Cause I just want what I want

Take me home (x4)
