Motorcycle Diaries

Well most of the days, there’s not a cloud in the sky

And everyone we meet is all too happy to smile

And I’ll rest my chin on the corner of your shoulder

And we’ll look straight ahead to the blue and the Bolder

Then the road starts to turn just like the knots in a tree

And we’ll sit down for the evening with some crazy company

And we’ll Lye down on the decking and I’ll try to stare at stars

But I’m distracted by your smile and the moon thats in your eyes

The moon that’s in your eyes

And we’ll get high before we cruise and we’ll be loud as we go through

And I don’t ever want your heart to leave my back

And we’ll get high before we cruise and we’ll be loud as we go through

And I dont ever want your heart to leave my back

And we’ll ride through from block party to block party

And you’ll be mine as we dance to the music in the night time

And we’ll ride through from block party to block party

And you’ll go wild as we dance the samoan to the sunrise

We’ll Take the coastal road If you don’t mind

I know it’s 20 times longer but we’re here for the ride

Pull up by a cafe and with a cigarette looking past all the plastic chairs to see the sunset

Well some of the days you know it’s really gonna rain

So we find the nearest place to go and call it a day

With jackets up to dry and boots sit by the bed

Then we’ll both shower as I kiss your neck

As I kiss your neck

And we’ll get high before we cruise and we’ll be loud as we go through

And I dont ever want your heart to leave my back

And we’ll get high before we cruise and we’ll be loud as we go

And I dont ever want your heart to leave my back

And we’ll ride through from block party to block party

And you’ll be mine as we dance to the music in the night time

And we’ll ride through from block party to block party

And you’ll go wild as we dance the samoan to the sunrise

Hell I never seen a girl to move quite like you do

Yea you know from my first sight I was dying to see you too

Maybe thats what makes your lips so god damn kissable

Now you better know

Oh oh oh ohhhhhhh

Let You Go To Carolina

I’ll let you move in, I’ll let you move out

I know it’s your world and i’ll never hold you down

You got braces still in our mouth, we’re both far too young and life is far too fun

So I let you go to Carolina

Let you go to Carolina

Let you go to Carolina in the fall

Oh yea I’ll let you go to Carolina

I won’t stop you even if I wanna

Let you go to Carolina to live it all

Oh now but I won’t knock on your door

And I won’t sleep on your floor

Let you go but you know i’m too young to chase (too young too chase)

Oh now but I wont knock on your door

And I won’t sleep on your floor

If we meet again then i’m putting it down to fate

Oh and I know we’ll have a nice Life

But it’s too far to try and coincide

And I’m sure I’ll miss your Blue eyes

But it’s my place to help you open them wide

So I let you go to Carolina

Let you go to Carolina

Let you go to Carolina in the fall

Oh yea I’ll let you go to Carolina

I won’t stop you even if I wanna

Let you go to Carolina to live it all

Oh Now But I won’t knock on your door

And I won’t sleep on your floor

I let you go but you know i’m too young to chase (too young too chase)

Oh now but I wont knock on your door

And I won’t sleep on your floor

If we meet again then i’m putting it down to fate

Oh No but I won’t knock on your door

And I won’t sleep on your floor

I’ll let you go

But i’ll never forget your face

One day on my travels years and miles away

I see the tole that Carolina’s taken on my old lovers face

Well your children now bear down on you and you run your own cafe

Still I know that i’d be happy

That I let you get away

Smile On

B B B Baby lets go, cos I dont wanna stay

Know that I can take you far away, in less than one day

Now we could go to Equador and Berlin on the way

Oh how i’d love to end up in Costa Rica, while I play to pay the way

Oh but

I dont have to just dream for this

And i’d like a girl who’s gonna keep me company all the way

Cos I dont wanna see my shadow through all of this

So pack your shadow up cos your gonna need him for a sunny day

And let me take you far away

B B B Baby lets go, and find the secret hideaways

Where no one’s ever been before, and thats just where we’ll stay

Now we could go to Mexico and Shanghai and LA

Oh we could jump on any train and travel any place

Oh but

I dont have to just dream for this

And i’d like a girl who’s gonna keep me company all the way

Cos I dont wanna see my shadow through all of this

So pack your shadow up cos your gonna need him for a sunny day

Now Smile on

Darlin lets go see the stars the world we live upon

Smile on

Darlin lets go see the stars the world we live upon

Darlin let me be with you now just one more night

Let’s go and sail away

Darlin let me be with you now just one more night

Let’s go and sail away

Away

And let me take you far away

Modern Disease

When you need can you reverse?

When you feel it get away from you

If you can feel it in your heart at all

Then it should fall back in place for you

It seems a lights been going off

A disease is spreading through

That takes us out of every moment

It’s our reality we lose

Well life’s strange and lives change

But it ain’t the way they make it out on tv

And life’s taking the fast lane

Now we miss out the little things that mean so much to me

Reverse the times and let’s bring back honesty

When we need can we reverse?

When we feel it get away from us

If we can feel it in our hearts at all

Then it should fall back in place for us

It seems a lights been going off

A disease is spreading through

And we don’t realise we’ve lost so much

When it’s our happiness we lose

Well life’s strange and lives change

Now we live out everday behind some little screen

Life’s taking the fast lane

Now we don’t even know we’re decieving constantly

With all of us lying there’s only one remedy

So lift up your heads and stop messaging fakery

Reverse these times and lets bring back honesty

When you need can you reverse?

When you feel it get away from you

If you can feel it in your heart at all

Then it should fall back in place for you

Close Call

Today I had a close call and I didn’t know it happened

Today I had a close call and I didn’t know what it was

Today I had a close call and I didn’t know it happened

Today I had a close call and I didn’t know what it was

It didn’t leave me breathless

It didn’t leave me dreaming

It didn’t leave my heart beating so fast that I know I wouldn’t move from the feeling

It didn’t leave me breathless

It didn’t leave me screaming

It didn’t leave my limbs moving so fast that I know I coulda jumped to the ceiling

I didn’t wait for my fate

Maybe we’re oblivious every single day

To what could come our ways

End our days

But we keep on walking on like nothing has been going on

Buzzing round the place landing on my face

This mosquito with malaria couldn’t get much scarier

But it’s ok

It’s not my day

I didn’t even have to stare shit in the face

Today I had a close call and I didn’t know it happened

Today I had a close call and I didn’t know what it was

Today I had a close call and I didn’t know it happened

Today I had a close call and I didn’t know what it was

It didn’t leave me breathless

It didn’t leave me dreaming

It didn’t leave my heart beating so fast that I know I wouldn’t move from the feeling

It didn’t leave me breathless

It didn’t leave me screaming

It didn’t leave my limbs moving so fast that I know I coulda jumped to the ceiling

Why would I waste food from the other day

But i’m just not I the mood to eat something that nearly killed me

Two different ways to get to my workplace

Why did I take the long way narrowly avoiding something

Coming my way

Ending my days

But I keep on walking on like nothing has been going on

But it’s ok

It’s not my day

I didn’t even have to stare shit in the

I saw a guy with an ipod in his ears

He crossed the road and he still has no idea

A car came so close his hair was nearly trimmed

Guess he just thinks that there’s a really stong gust of wind

Well he didn’t wait for his fate

Maybe we’re oblivious every single day

To what could come our way

End our days

But we keep on walking on like nothing has been going on

But it’s OK

It’s not my Day

I’m still a big believer in this thing called fate

And it’s ok

Guess I’ll live to see another day

I didn’t even have to stare shit in the face

Te amo

Voce sabe

Tempo para sonhar com voce

Lay my head by yours

Who needs healing?

When I cross these shores

I start dreaming

Everynight your a different animal

When I lick the tears from your eyes

Just a wolf when you cry

Everynight your a different animal

With your body wrapped in mine

Just a snake by my side

Oh it’s unfroven

I found a girl who can melt

All around me loosens

I found a girl who’s a

Different animal

Different animal

Your uncomofrtable in this bed

And its obvious you ain’t been up yet

So I help you

And you help me

Annie I’m amazed

That you’ve been here so many days

And your cd choice is still very plain

I’ll make some new ones when I get home

Cos elvis is stuck on “blue suede shoes” again

So I help you

And you help me

Annie I’m amazed

How much I think about you when i’m away

And i’ll get anything you want

No matter what the nurses say

I know you got me right under your thumb

I help you

And you help me

Annie, you call for me

So I’m sneaking back to your bed

With a cup of tea and couple digestives

I help you

And you help me

Annie I’m amazed

That you’ve been here so many days

You make me laugh nearly every time

Cos even in this shitty place

You really are a friend of mine

Ohhhhhh Annie

Cos your getting tired of this place

So I come to you so we can escape

Annie, just call for me

Peter and Paul

Peter said to Paul you gotta rock yourself a little harder

If you don’t want the thought of nothing when your gone to scare ya

But he won’t

No he won’t

He won’t

Paul said to Peter “Dont you worry bout the word forever?”

It’s easy to get lost but we’re all in this together

You go

And I go

We go

Peter said to Paul that “I find the safety in numbers”

Take time to think but there’s no one in the world who knows

And you won’t

And I won’t

We won’t

Peter tried with all his might to think of nothing

Before we were born didn’t take much time at all

No it don’t

No it don’t

And it won’t

Cos if we can live forever before we were born

Then we can live forever after it all

Forever shouldn’t be too hard

Forever shouldn’t take too long

at all

at all

at all

Forest Girl

I knew a girl who ran

So fast away from the truth

Into the darkest forest known to man

And then the panic slowly grew

And in the heart of the night she ran

With adrenaline pumped her blood turned blue

And in the darkest time she sang a pretty little song and

She heard a voice sing too

Oh and you heard

Oh oh oh oh oh Ooooh

Oh oh oh oh oh Oooooh

Oh oh oh oh oh Ooooh

Oh oh oh oh oh Oooooh

You’d never been so lost

That night he took you in

I know he gave up all his time

Oh just to let you in

And he cleared up all your wounds

And he even bathed you too and Oh Oh

And so as not to frighten you

He would always sing his tune

Oh and you heard

Oh oh oh oh oh Ooooh

Oh oh oh oh oh Oooooh

Oh oh oh oh oh Ooooh

Oh oh oh oh oh Oooooh

Then the months started to pass

But he’d always cuddle you

And I know he started to feel something for her

And in the same she loved him too

Then on one knee he had to ask

He said the ring would just have to come soon

She interuppted and just said yes “You silly old man” an

And they burst into tune

Oh and you heard

Oh oh oh oh oh Ooooh

Oh oh oh oh oh Oooooh

Oh oh oh oh oh Ooooh

Oh oh oh oh oh Oooooh

So why did you come here, he said

She said I just had too

You see I had to get so far away

To avoid all the abuse

But why do you live here, she said

He said I just had too

They thought I killed my only child

And that’s why I sing her tune

Oh and you heard

Oh oh oh oh oh Ooooh

Oh oh oh oh oh Oooooh

Oh oh oh oh oh Ooooh

Oh oh oh oh oh Oooooh

Then he went to chop some wood

And he could smell her home cooked food

So he just started to sing so loud

But he couldn’t hear her too

He sang all the way to the door

But the silence only grew

She was there in a heap all over the floor and oh oh

He couldn’t even move

He tried her heart so many times

But she wasn’t pulling through

They just lay there in a heap on the floor

Too choked to sing there tune

Oh and you heard

Lovin You

– 

I don’t wanna know about what you do desire

I feel so on the edges of your heart cos I can’t seem to find that twinkle in your eye

And oh I know It takes a certain girl to give me anytime

But oh you know the hardest lesson to learn is you don’t need me in your life

Well you sigh and it’s your last

Oh it’s just another thing I pick up from our past

But how do I know that you’ll be there

Oh the way that you’ve been acting makes me think that you don’t care

Cos I’ve been lovin you, like you never said before

Like I never knew you’d hurt me again

And I’ve been holding you, through the braces of my heart

As the basis to my soul beats again

Cos I’ve been lovin you, like you never said before

Like I never knew you’d hurt me again

And I’ve been holding you, through the braces of my heart

As the basis to my soul beats again

I don’t want to know about it, if it’s not me that you desire

Can’t you see it’s killing me that I don’t ever get to see that twinkle in your eyes 

And how I know that you were the girl, who gave me most of her time

And oh you know the hardest lesson to learn is you don’t need me in your life

Well you sigh and it’s your last

Oh deciding our future seems to be your fragile task

But how do I know that you’ll be there

Oh the way that you’ve been acting makes me think that you don’t care

Cos I’ve been lovin you, like you never said before

I never knew you’d hurt me again

And I’ve been holding you, through the braces of my heart

As the basis to my soul beats again

Cos I’ve been lovin you, like you never said before

Like I never knew you’d hurt me again

And I’ve been holding you, through the braces of my heart

As the basis to my soul beats again

I’ve been lovin you, like you never said before

Like I never knew you’d hurt me again

And I’ve been holding you, through the braces of my heart

As the basis to my soul beats again

I’ve been lovin you, like you never said before

Like I never knew you’d hurt me again

And I’ve been holding you, through the braces of my heart

As the basis to my soul beats again

Oh as my soul beats again

Goes By So Easy

And the day

Goes by so easy

And the day

Goes by so easy

Just a little kiss when I wake up

And a smile before I sleep

And a little back rub when I need it

All the countless times that you make me a tea

Makes the day

Go by so easy

And the day

Goes by so easy

Just a little song on my voicemail

And all the jokes when we watch tv

And a little nose rub when its cold out

And the times that you pull me closer to sleep

Makes the day

Go by so easy

And the day

Goes by so easy

And it’s all the little things you do that make it go by

Make it go by

So Steady

So steady

Can you feel these mountains moving any more

So ready

Take on any wave and ride to the shore

These mountains are just gliding past my door

With you in the picture dreams appear to be the norm

With you in the picture dreams appear to be the norm

Hell without you how’d I ever get this far

But now that I found you well I’m So

So steady

Can you feel these mountains moving any more

So ready

Take on any wave and ride to the shore

These mountains are just gliding past my door

With you in the picture dreams appear to be the norm

With you in the picture dreams appear to be the norm

Hell without you how’d I ever get this far

Now that I found I just thank all the lucky stars

A feeling so grounded but it’s taking me to mars

But now that I found you well I’m So

So steady

Can you feel these mountains moving any more

So ready

Take on any wave and ride to the shore

So steady

Can you feel these mountains moving any more

So ready

Take on any wave and ride to the shore

Fly Me To The Moon

Fly me to the moon

In these dirty sheets

Bound, still movement in this cacoon

We’re too shy to touch as it lightens up

Keep the lie of sleep alive enough

To never move

To never move

As I lie

With

You

As I lie

With

You

And as I move you move

Letting in little pieces of truth

Just fool to fool

We’re too shy to touch as it lightens up

Keep the lie of sleep alive enough

To never move

Lieing next to you

As I lie

With

You

You lie

With

Me

Beauty By the Billions

We came to watch the fireworks light up the seven steps over Congonhas

Saw every window, every house families and friends the times that never end

No count down to midnight, taken by surprise, explosions in the sky

Two in a trillion alright, side by side in the new years night

And I Know

We’re all

So Small and Insignificant

I Know

There’s beauty in that

Beauty by the billions

I Know

We’re all

So Small and Insignificant

I Know

There’s beauty in that

Beauty by the billions

I didn’t see it at first the beauty of it all it Just made me feel small

But in your eyes a universe I saw it all I felt it all

What fate what chance what coincidence you and me

I didn’t see it at first but beauty is small when you’re so big to me

And I Know

We’re all

So Small and Insignificant

I Know

There’s beauty in that

Beauty by the billions

I Know

We’re all

So Small and Insignificant

I Know

There’s beauty in that

Beauty by the billions

And I Know

We’re all

So Small and Insignificant

And I Know

There’s beauty in that

Beauty by the billions

Casey

Get your barrels out

Casey’s coming to town oh

Round up every man

Cos he’s bringing the whole gang down

Do you remember the last time

The widow maker showed his face

Cos we been burning since the last night

Casey’s gang tore up the place

So when came back to the courtyard and starts singing his demands, well he sang

You . . . you gonna give me all I want

You . . . you gonna give me time to run

And I’ll let you carry on

Casey’s done it again

Now he’s to the wind

We caved in to every demand

But we still have every woman, child, and man

We all think back the last time

The widow maker showed his face

Cos we’re still struggling since the last night

Casey’s gang tore up the place

So when he stood out in the courtyard and starts singing his demands

Pretty soon the whole town was burning to the ground

He’s singing

You . . . you gonna give me all I want

And you . . . you gonna give me time to run

And I’ll let you carry on

I’ll let you carry on 

Well we all tried to carry on

But winter is dragging on so slow

We could lose half this town

Crops are running lower than low

We all think back to the last time

The widow maker showed his face

Cos we’ve been dying since the last night

Casey’s gang ransacked this place

So when he came back to the courtyard, starts singing his demands

Pretty soon the whole town was singing back in arms and singing

Oh . . . you gonna get out of our town
Oh . . . those bullets start raining down

Ooh

Well Casey’s face down on the ground

Oh yea he’s face down on the ground

No no no more

Troubles for this little town

Mr Untouchable

God you’re so tight

How’d you make it everynight

Are you leaving?

Ache don’t feel so nice no it don’t

Still you go out everynight

Are you leaving?

How do you sleep with a wolf?

Do you consider yourself comfortable?

Are you comfortable?

How do you function at all?

Just keep on sinking stones untouchable

Mr Untouchable

How’d you sleep at night

When the grass keeps growing everytime

That your leaving

Surrounded by forest fire as it burns

Still you don’t show any signs

So your leaving

How do you sleep with a wolf?

Do you consider yourself comfortable?

Are you comfortable?

How do you function at all?

Just keep on sinking stones untouchable

Mr Untouchable

The Gang

It’s a hell of a thrill

I could say before today that blood has never been spilled

But my team are very skilled

I had myself an empire that I was trying to build

So why

Would you think that I would ever give this up

And why

Would we give up the only thing we got

And it’s the only thing we got

We go in the front, round the back

Guns are out and hands are up

And nobody is walking out the door

We’ve practiced this a thousand times or

Blow the safe

Fill our bags

Bleach the floor and cover our tracks

Out the door in two minutes, never more

We’ve practiced this a thousand times or more

It’s a working mans job

It’s two years of preperation for every bank we rob

But boy does it pay off

I could say before today that we had never fucked things up

So why

Would you think that I would ever give this up

And why

Would we give up the only thing we got

And it’s the only thing we got

(We’ve practiced this a thousand times or more)

We go in the front round the back

Guns are out and hands are up

And nobody is walking out the door

We’ve practiced this a thousand times or more

Blow the safe

Fill our bags

Bleach the floor and cover our tracks

Out the door two minutes, never more

We’ve practiced this a thousand times or more

Out the bank just seconds late

The big mistake that sealed our fate

The police cars met us half way down the road 

Time to run like we’ve never run before

Through the city, as sirens squeel

Into country and open fields

The hellas coptered numbered too many to count

Keep on driving never looking back

Over spikes, rims scrape the floor

We flip the car and roll some more

Land on our side as blood spills out the door

We’ve practised this a thousand times or more

Ben and Pete met instant death

Too much trauma to Gary’s head

The rest of us looking forward to four walls

We’ve practiced this a thousand times or more

Jessie

I ain’t no Jessie

I ain’t myself

I ain’t no Jessie no

I ain’t myself

No no no no

But who, I never felt crazy

And I, never thought twice about the moments left behind me

When I was growing up

And now i’m looking back

At the time in the bathroom my father screamed

What a tragedy, nobody could see it was me

Then it all came back

It all came back again

When I was nearly starting my own family

As I called for help

The scratches on my wrist showed themselves to me

I ain’t no Jessie

I ain’t myself

I ain’t no Jessie no

I ain’t myself

No no no no

So I can’t stick around here now

Running out of every town I go

But who, I never felt crazy

And I, never thought twice about the moments left behind me

When I was growing up

And now I’m looking back

Now that I can see that I’ve left these awful tracks

Making sure I don’t let jessie seep out of the cracks

Waiting by the bridge if I find out he came back

It’s 20 years later now, still I’m the only detective who is onto me

So every night before I sleep, I comb my hair from my head to my feet

Looking out for any signs of self deceit, looking out for some clues of any awful mischief

So I can stay the only victim in this life that I lead

I ain’t no Jessie no

I ain’t myself

No no no no
